        It feels like 1000 screaming Banshees with tiny needles poking my lower right back and proceeding down my right leg.Can't sit upright for too long or everything cramps up...So fun. How's the weekend going?

      • JBJingles_from the casa@RH

        So sorry to hear that! Have you tried a heating pad or ice? I guess WD failed her massage therapy class, huh? And someone yesterday wanted to know just what you did to throw your back out?? ;)

        Weekend is goo, having fun playing on the iPhad! LOL

        November 13, 2011 at 10:36 am |
    • RichardHead@JBJ

      Oh yea, the heating pad is my best friendsie right now. I was placing my 38 lb. Butterball into the truck when it popped. Truth called me last nite and with the pills the Dr. gave me I wonder if he could understand what I was trying to say...HA! Guess I'm just getting old...:(((

    Good Sunday Morning all! AleeD – Hope the floors got done just fine... RH – You need to check in my friend, a bad back is no excuse! Super cold here (for us anyway), beef bourgignon yesterday was deeeelish, potatoe and leek soup today and some type of biscuit...I have a bunch of leftover thyme and some cheddar, so not sure those will go well in a dough? Hubs is off to the hispanic market for some fresh pico de gallo, he's making machaca for breakfast, yum.

    Happy Saturday to all!
    JBJingles, did your new iPad help you land safely yesterday? :D
    Rich, hope WD trimmed her claws before she started your massage therapy. HA!
    The flooring guys are here and the installation has begun! Please keep your fingers crossed that all goes well.

    "egg wa rsh" LOL! I vaguely remember those commercials in the 70s or so. I do remember there being a K F C that had a big bucket sign that was bu sted and did not twirl. Interesting, the commercials even then showed a bucket heaping full but when you actually buy it , it's about a quarter filled with chicken. Or whatever it is K F C is calling chicken now.

    November 11, 2011 at 1:19 pm |
    • Truth@JBJ

      I am thinking a pork roast for tomorrow night and something easy for Sunday. How about you?

      November 11, 2011 at 1:24 pm |
    • AleeD@Jbjingles@37085 ft

      I'm not thinking beyond getting the floor installed ..... tomorrow. I'm trying to stay quietly and cautiously optimistic. Am failing miserably. ;) S'ok tho'. There's a Granny Smith Woodchuck in the fridge with my name on it. Tonight I will have it and that should calm me down ...... some.

      November 11, 2011 at 1:31 pm |
    • Jerv@JBJ and Truth

      Roast sounds good, Truth. I'm in luck! My pops will be in this weekend so we will be doing country fried steak and fried spaghetti. I'm going to take him to a steakhouse for Veterans day as well. What you got cooking, JBJ?

      November 11, 2011 at 1:33 pm |
      • Jbjingles@37085 ft@Jerv

      • Jerv@JBJ

        Cook the pasta like you always do. Then in a frying pan, cook in some peanut oil and slowly stir in some egg. I've tried to do it but it never comes out as good as his.

        November 11, 2011 at 2:38 pm |
    • Jbjingles@37085 ft@Truth

      i just checked our weather...rain and cold all weekend so some kind of chowder/stew or slow cooked for hours!

      November 11, 2011 at 1:34 pm |
      • Truth@JBJ

        Beef or venison stew in cold weather is just heaven!

    • Truth@JBJ

      I talked to him yesterday. He is laid up with back issues and it trying to train WD to walk on his back and massage it. I am more concerned with what he was doing to throw his back out in the first place. Hmmmmmm...

      November 11, 2011 at 11:31 am |

        Good to know that most of him is ok. Maybe he should schedule some time in the dungeon. I have straps and can hang him on the pole .....

      If it was up to me, all active duty military personnel would eat free at all restaurants. Immediate family would eat at cost or less.

  15. Ms. Grammar

    HAPPY VETERANS DAY! We are a service family. Mom and Dad met in the Air Force during end of Korean War/Conflict; dated for 6 weeks; got married, and were together for 53 years. Cute fact: Mom made Sergeant 6 months before Dad did (she used to bring that up every once in a while). Baby sister retired from Air Force as Master Staff Sergeant after 21 years. Baby brother did a tour in the Army as an MP in Germany during Gulf War.

    Thank you to all our veterans who served to protect our way of life and our country.

    November 11, 2011 at 10:34 am |
    • Jerv@Ms. Grammar

      Amen to that. And sounds like you have quite a few career military folks in you family. My pops put in 24 years in the Navy.

    Good morning everyone!

    A big thank you to all the veterans in the Klatsch as well as those that are currently on active duty. My cousin got back from a tour of Afghanistan not too long ago...

    Also, since it IS 11/11/11, today has also been declared National Metal Day! So in that spirit...

      If I start working out again, that's what I'm listening to. There was some old school metal band that did a sandman song, do you know what the band is?

      November 11, 2011 at 12:23 pm |
      • AleeD@Jerv & DJCP

        Enter Sandman by Metallica?

        That's it! I had a friend in college that listened to that song all the time.

        Literally, all the time. He would play it over and over.

        Interestingly, like you this morning, I just had an innocuous post about K F C moderated. What gives with that crap? We have trolls that get through with d ichead and f uck. Go figure.

    At this moment it says 9 comments but I see only 8. Once I "publish" this it will say 10 but 9 will show......... Kat? SLT? Can you tell us what's happening?

      Hello there MicG. I've noticed the same thing. And then there are some days where the count is correct. I sense a conspiracy.

    Happy Friday everyone! Busy day ahead. I'm helping a friend set up her goods to sell at a craft show tomorrow.

    Happy Veterans day to my fellow Vets. I, for one, gained so much more than I was required to give during my time in the military. I think of those who sacrificed everything and am extremely grateful.

    November 11, 2011 at 9:05 am |
    • MicheleG™

      Well, Happy Veteran's Day to you! What branch? When?

        I was in the Air Force from 1993-1997. Mostly stayed in New Mexico but spent some time in the Middle East during late 96 and early 97.

      • Truth@TWO

        Actually, one of the best television shows of all time was back in the 1980s and was "Hill Street Blues". One of my favorite scenes was when one detective with a serious alcohol problem finally finds his way to an AA meeting, and when asked to introduce himself, winds up being greeted by his police Captain, who was a longtime AA attendee. Good stuff there.
