Bev, you may have already done so, but could you put a pic of Uncle Ray up in your avatar space? I've heard so much about him, I feel like I know him. :D

11 year-old Son had negative blood panel, but went on gluten-free diet of his own volition to see if his concentration would improve, his temper abate, and his energy level would increase. Miraculous response!

Whatever ... B) It's too late for us to go back and check. :)

Hehe whaaaaaaaat? I meant another opportunity to mention Indy seating! :o

(I knew it wasn't said well, but was too tired to make it better :( )

Went to a WhF gluten-free/celiac mtg last night. Damn I wish some of the younger ones from last yrs mtgs would show. It was even free gluten-free pizza night!

P.S. Nikki! I'm slow to say "great av change!"

Thar's them boys!

Susan is right-handed ... that's why she holds her wine glass in her right hand while eating and brushing her teeth with her left.

:lol::lol:

I WRITE and EAT and BRUSH MY TEEF left handed.....everything else is very strongly right. :huh:

I've only met a handful of others in my life who are this way.

Well, I had to change my avatar. I just could not bear to look at Susie's hair style one more minute!

:lol: I did love that troll w/ inverted 'do.....

OK, anybody mind if I post about 350 of the exact same message so I can get into the club?

Just put a

:lol:

or a

:)

or a

:o

...in after every post you read. Not only gets you closer to secret club and canadian house, makes you seem really empathetic. :lol:

I was in that grand Fortune 500 race...alongside Jerry and....forget her real name, but her posting name is "confused". Jerry won, but it was VERY close and the tension was electric. His clever strategy was to simply count the post number on each posting, and nothing else. "478"...then "479"...Kinda cheating :P:angry: , if you ask moi. Actually, thank gawd there isn't a governing body that regulates "real" posts, and deletes those that don't meet up to content standard. Don't think I'd be past twenty or so!

and then - curiously - we hardly SEE Jerry any more! It's like he just USED us, to get his 500 posts and his subtitle! :lol:

Maybe it's just a Canadian house. I don't want one of those

Silly Jess. I"LL take it. ;)

Oh, SuuuuuuuZeeeee . . .

Times up. What color and geometrical shape is your hair, now?

...............drumroll please...................

the SHAPE is normal, nicely conditioned and lying flat.

THE COLOR - - - :o

OMG embarrassingly dark. Just think - Johnny Cash, or Wayne Newton......................or black shoe polish.

:angry:

HOwever, I am not fully irate as this will fade quite quickly into something quite good. Which will then fade even more, until gray roots show, the shoe polish shade morfs into the brassy orange again, and then, we begin the process ALL OVER AGAIN.

:angry:

I hate getting older.

Tom, nope, I'm not going to mention that stuff when you want me to. I'm going to mention stuff like that when you least expect it. :)

Susie, I write left-handed, everything else is generally right-handed ... but I can eat just as easily with either hand ... since I'm usually eating with right-handers on either side of me, I usually eat right handed. Sounds like both sides of your and my brains work ... that's why we're so smart!

I used to have a hard time with tennis ... if it was a backhand that was hard to reach, I'd put my racket in my left hand! :D Once I started playing racquetball with that racket that ties around your wrist, that got much more difficult to do and I had to stop that bad habit! :lol:

From the looks of things you Silly-Yaks haven't missed a beat - NICE WORK!

I do have one issue -Who let Wayne Newton in? Isn't it in the bylaws that Robert Goulet (love the commercial) is the Official lounge lizard, and as such only his greatest hit(s) shall be played on a loop as our back ground noise? Sheesh! :P

Richard!! One of these times ya GOTsta stick around!! Be a "second rooster"! ;)

Subject: The Rooster

John, the Wellton farmer was in the fertilized egg business. He had

several hundred young layers (hens), called "pullets" and eight or ten

roosters, whose job was to fertilize the eggs. The farmer kept records

and any rooster that didn't perform went into the soup pot and was

replaced. That took an awful lot of his time so he bought a set of tiny

bells and attached them to his roosters. Each bell had a different tone

so John could tell from a distance, which rooster was performing. Now he

could sit on the porch and fill out an efficiency report simply by

listening to the bells. The farmer's favorite rooster was old Butch, and

a very fine specimen he was, too. But on this particular morning John

noticed old Butch's bell hadn't rung at all! John went to investigate.

The other roosters were chasing pullets, bells-a-ringing. The pullets,

hearing the roosters coming, would run for cover. But to Farmer John's

amazement, Butch had his bell in his beak, so it couldn't ring. He'd

sneak up on a pullet, do his job and walk on to the next one. John was

so proud of Butch, he entered him in the Boone County Fair andButch

became an overnight sensation among the judges. The result...

The judges not only awarded Butch the No Bell Piece Prize but they also

awarded him the Pulletsurprise as well. Clearly Butch was a politician

in the making: who else but a politician could figure out how to win two

of the most highly coveted awards on our planet by being the best at

sneaking up on the populace and screwing them when they weren't paying

attention?

Are you roosters wearing your bells? :P

I have changed jobs, and the opportunities for daily (or all day, as the case used to be) silliness seldom presents itself.

I'm also playing super-dad at home. My wife has gone back to school full-time, so Mr. Mom it is. I was having a "Shining" moment ("all work and no play makes Jack a dull boy") so I decided to parachute in. Nice to see some familiar faces (Wayne excepted). Please heel the dingos :huh:

Robert Goulet

I swear he has visited my office. I've taken to napping in the mornings just to avoid his tom-foolery

But "embarrassingly dark" will go fantabulously with the orange skin that you so desire. (I would recommend an overuse of sunless tanning products to achieve this goal). Thank goodness you did not attempt orange skin with the orange hair. If they were two different color of oranges, it would have clashed hideously. :o

Any discussion of orange skin should begin and end with this man. I think the hole in the ozone layer has been following him! (due to the propellants in his hair spray perhaps?)

ain't nuthin' fake about THAT bake!

I mean these guys look like they "hang" all the time. I'm afraid NOT, Edgar is probably getting skin cancer just from sitting so close to him! (second hand sun) :P

I've heard of "second banana", but "second rooster"? Have I been away that long? <_<:P

Tom has been the only rooster in the henhouse, mostly (occasional pop-ins from Steve/GFP) and so we could use another. oh and um, NEED I REMIND YOU, you are the FOUNDER of this beloved thread???????? :huh:

it's really sad when that is your claim to fame. Need a guy with a crazy tan - call George...

I know a woman (of the gold digging variety) who has her own tanning bed, and man sakes alive does she get her money's worth out of it. George might be a bit pale next to her :o

Hair will be fine in a few days. Susie is much happier.
