Yeah, but we were in the middle of a discussion. Maybe we should allow a one day overlap of monthly threads... You've got a hair trigger on that thread locker, don't ya?

The link finally came through. You may have to tell me what you found significant from his post because it was lost on me.

May is unlocked. You're free to carry previous discussions even if it is locked. I assume you wanted to quote something?

I just happened to be up past 12 last night.

Nah, I was just trying to jerk your chain. That's what us mentally old people that should've been born in the '20s like to do for fun. Wink

What is this obsession that you've had about age, lately?

Starting to find grey hairs in your beard?

Have I mentioned my age lately? Hadn't noticed...

The previous comment was a joke carried over from Facebook.

No not at all. Jump on in the water's fine. Smile

I was just giving an explaination for my little quip that i may have detailed a bit more.

On facebook there are all kinds of time wasters. Laughing One of which happens to be these little surveys and/or personality tests such as "What car are you?" based on your answers, or "What's your mental age?" (at which my result was 60), or "What decade should you have been born in?" (which my result was the '20s) and other such fluff. There were people cracking on me because most people's mental age was near their actual age or less, and the decade they should've been born was pretty close to accurate. Apparently the things I enjoy in life and the way I view things are inconsistent with the way most people in their mid 30s view them.

I've been cleaning up the above ground pool. Might fill it this weekend, although it'll be a couple of weeks before it warms up enough to get in. Mighty cold well water. (But I sure love how it tastes. Hate going on the road and drinking civilized H2O.)

I like my well water too. I buy gallons of distilled water to drink when I'm at the Charleston house.

I spent a couple of Navy business days there in the 80's. Don't remember much except the Civil War-era architecture. Distilled water? Is that because Charleston water makes you pucker?

I love distilled water. I usually buy Smartwater which is distilled with electrolytes added for taste. Its better than all that "spring water" that is really tap water with Flouride.

It's a nice place to visit if you enjoy historical places, but I wouldn't want to live there permanently. Too crowded for me.

I try not to drink city water. Of course I will drink tea at restaurants which is obviously made from it, but I usually only drink one glass with a meal.

Been back and forth between clowdy and clear here today, but I stayed in all day. Took a "lazy" day and only left the recliner to either import of export food and drink.

There's a part of me that feels a little guilty about days like this (why they're so rare), but the rest of me knows I need a total recharge day every now and then.

Speaking of which, my summer has just been booked. At the request of my school, I am un-retiring. They can't afford to pay a full-time science teacher next year to replace the one that didn't work out. (Fortunately, she said she wouldn't be coming back, before the superintendent told her not to come back.) The two administrators will pick up some of the slack, and I'll be teaching 3 morning classes. Since all the textbooks got replaced during my one year off, there's going to be a whole lot of work preparing for the Fall. If I don't do it now, I won't have a life later. Been there before, done that before.

I'm actually looking forward to a bit more daily productivity. And I do enjoy spending time with the kids. The year off was awesome, though. Allowed me to do a lot of things for the church and other people. One bad side effect, though. I'll be contributing more taxes to feed the gov't beast.

Now don't "WE" feel a bit hypocritical, as our paychecks for the last 25 years and current retirement checks come from the "gov't beast"?

Too much of what we "contribute" is spent so badly by both political parties. One just happens to be the lesser of two evils. The only reason I've got left for voting is just so I have the right to complain about it.

Imagine what power we'd have if we'd stop voting for a "lesser evil" and rallied together to fight the two party system.

Actually, I DID feel a bit Hypocritical when I would complain about Government and the Taxes, when I WAS part of the Government and paid from the Taxes that I complained about.

One of our older officers in Milwaukee stopped and figured out his annual wages, then divided it by the population of the City, and it came to something like 68 cents.

Then when someone would complain and say, "I pay your salary", he would pull 68 cents out of his pocket, give it to him and say, "Here's you money back.  Now stop complaining".


Hey!

Maybe we should do that for the White House Staff who are complaining about the soldiers who are speaking out about Bowe Bergdahl. Figure the salaries of those soldiers, divide it by 280,000,000, send it to those staffers, and tell them to SHUT UP!

A percentage of the city population is unemployed people or children. Maybe up it to a buck...

Some police and military are necessary services.

I wonder how much we'd get back from the welfare system?

Let's try it. Let's get a procedure in place so that, if someone complains about someone getting undeserved welfare, then that person has to give the complainant ($78,000.00 pay & benefits divided by 85,000,000 tax paying Americans). It's only a penny here or there, but eventually could add up.

Four hours there, four hours on site, and four hours back. Outpost campsite is all ready for next week's pow wow. Lots of wildlife going in both directions. Doesn't get any better than early summer in Montana.

Hey take pictures and share them. I enjoy Pow Wow pictures.

I had over 200 hits from our district on my website when I posted on Tuesday.

Is it just me, or is the "Reader's Digest" not what it used to be? I haven't read one in years, so I picked one up the other day checking out at the grocery store and started reading through it last night. Some of the stories are OK, but it doesn't seem as good as it used to be.

I was really disappointed with the joke areas like "Humor in Uniform", "All in a Days Work", etc. Seems like there used to be some really funny snippets, but I only got a chuckle or two out of all of all of them.

Is it just me, or has it changed over the years?
