  6. Truth™, Here's the line of the day...

    I went to Macy's at lunch, and overheard a man wanting to buy some lingerie for his girlfriend. The sales clerk asked if he had anything in particular in mind, and he said "Something that will look good laying in a heap next to the bed"

    I had to stifle so much laughter, i thought my head would explode...

        What in the world does Ed Zach-man have to do with anything? He's too busy being the (TARGET) of numerous internet jokes! That is unless you're trying to hint at something. Are you trying to hint at something about me, Miss Miss Miss?~ Because searches on the googles makes it look like you're trying to pull a fast one on me!

          Lordy! You mean to tell me some of theses ARE actually words? In the English lexicon? (And I thought I had a good vocabulary....Google searches are SO handy! I should have done one, too.)

Yes, we push the definition of the common English language in regards to food or Veggies,or in times of a lapse of brain power...general common sense. I still must say that we are Human in thought and feeling towards one another. As a group, we should not be punished by a quarantine of parameters set by a computer program.

        @Truth& Kat- I always have felt welcome here. Never thought it was anything but an easy going group! I've enjoyed "meeting" the people here.

      Maybe JBJ had it right yesterday? HA-–Besides, your still the smartest man in the room. Should we call ourselves the Krotchety Klatscher's ???

      Wow. I completely blew past CC's "crotchety comment." Re-read it just now. Please keep in mind: school's out; kids are antsy about going back; they're just ignorantly venting. Remember how bad it was last year? Angry little trolls crawling around here like fire ants. Stinging anything that gets in their way.

      As Kat said, it's hard to get a true feeling of what goes on in here from just one day's thread. For all we know, CC viewed all of us as crotchety. Joke him if he can't take a ..... ;)

      Morning all ... & Mr. Deej. ;) Other than the curlers and the white robe, sure. ;)

      JBJ, FWIW, I haven't heard from Sir Bid this week either. Seems he mentioned some top secret CIA business in the Bahamas ... but I could be mistaken.

      abk, best of luck with your little one. Rich is right, a 3rd opinion would be the way to go. Hubby & I have found it's best not to tell your dox from which other dox you're getting your multiple opinions. It keeps the levels of influence to a minimum.

          Read my posts to Sir Bid and see if that doesn't 'splain it. :)

    Sorry to hear about the young one.....maybe a third opinion also would be in order? Driving Big Blue with a 53 foot trailer makes it kind of tricky to get into some places. What type of food do they have?

      @ RH- I plan on doing as much research as possible. She has had terrible reflux all her life. Nothing has helped so far. Potty Pats has southern food and its in the style of Gone With The Wind. It's in downtown so it would be hard to access. I do believe they have decent parking garages, but Big Blue might not make it. They have excellent fried chicken. I try not to eat fried very often but I make an exception for them.

        Morning Lil' Buddy.....Yes Sir, New company--auto parts back and forth, Houston to Atlanta. WD likes the new scenery and sniffery too.

          Haha! "Sniffery." Well that is cool, more money I hope. The chick in the photo looks like she is about to give us a Britney Spears moment.

          Yes Sir, Better company and more money. WD always goes " Commando " !!

          Go WD! I was reading the "Breaking News" posts. LOL! Seems Randy Travis had way too much fun. Have a great day RicH and all!

      @ RH-I'm ready for weekend too. I don't live too far from Hotlanta and go frequently for the shopping and good food. Ever been to Pitty Pat's Porch?

      And off topic but it looks like my little girl needs surgery for her GERD. I'm getting a second opinion though because I hate to have surgery done a toddler :(
