Fun at K-Mart

This afternoon I had to make a quick run to get a couple of things, the closest place to me is K-Mart. Not my favorite place to go, but I have noticed that it is Wal-Mart without the crowds, so it’s usually a fairly painless place to run in, get what you need, and then...

Translation Wanted

Somebody PLEASE translate this for me! This showed up on my answering machine recently… HELP!!! This very well could be a relative of “Crazy Drunk Guy”.

Potem Falls- An Adventure In Moss

“It’s prounounced POH-TAM falls” My father told me after I had returned from an afternoon hike with my oldest son. “That man died up there awhile back. Fell off. His brother died too, going up to show someone where.” That was a nice little story to make me feel extra safe about the place I...

New Topic

I think it’s time for a new open forum type topic. Due to the fact we’ve not really had a new topic for awhile…I say having some open-ongoing topics might free things up, provide for more content. Inspired by Eduardo’s trip to Clear Lake, I say we have a topic devoted to “Getaways”. Whenever an...

I am Electro…Would you like Showtime with that?

I just moved. Again. I will post my farewell to my last place when I’m officially out of it 100%. Part of the move required me to switch my dish network account. I called the 1-800 # and took care of that, only about 15 seconds into my call, I became confused. was I even...

Mouse Vs Man Round 2

The mouse has tripped the trap once more, escaping. Last night he didn’t even try…all the traps were still loaded and ready this morning when Ieft. I’m not sure how he’s done it…but he’s good. Real good. I was hoping for a foot or and ear at least…maybe a tail…but he appears to have gotten...

Man Vs. Mouse Round 1

When I went to the local .99 cent store for mouse traps I found these PETA approved devices. I’m debating buying these. I guess the mouse wanders over them…then gets stuck…like Brer Rabbit and the Tar Baby…to me…this seems like the mouse would still be living, and pissed should he get caught in the trap....

Winco another observation

Winco is so white trash even the muppets in their claw game don’t have clothes on.

A NOT so fantastic find.

Ever reach your hand inside your pocket and find a $20 bill? That rips right? proboably one of the sweetest discoveries you can have. Heck, even finidng $1 in your pocket is kind of awesome. It’s also very cool to think to yourself you’ve got an exceptionally high bill coming due, only to discover it’s...

Busting my Balls

So Brenden, my oldest son, is getting to that age where he has friends come over to play. This is not fun, for me. I can begin to see why my parents, and the parents of my friends always seemed insane. Dealing with other people’s kids isn’t fun. Brenden’s friend is over now, and it’s...

TOPIC

We need a topic. Now that the site is secure, a topic would be great. I know personally, I’d like to post, but as of now, my lack of excitement during summer prevents me from having anything of worth to post.

SAFE HAPPENS

Ok Has anyone seen the new VW commercials? I hate them. If you haven’t seen them, let me give you the general idea. They show people in a car, driving, having a random conversation about something mildly amusing. In one ad 4 people are discussing whether or not one of the guys cried at a...
