          You laugh, but they talked hubs into buying one a few years back, the 'beast' weighs about 50 lbs and has as many attachments...a very pushy sales lady came by yesterday to sell these and I think he slammed the door in her face! =0

    Ho ho from a 20% chance of "isolated thunderstorms with a forecast high of 104. Relative humidity at this hour is 49%."

    Current conditions at Murrieta (SDMEA). (If you google this acronym it won't take you to the proper item. It's a National Weather Service thingie.)

    Morning everyone. Hope everyone's week will start out on good notes.

    I WAS going to watch the Olympics closing ceremony, but when I turned it on they had decided to do some sort of fashion show. My interest flew out the window faster than a peregrine falcon.

    Anyway, sweet cola will get me going today...hopefully.

      That part was interesting, but it had great flow with the rest of the program. Loved David Bowie playing in the background :-D

    Good Monday my crotchety pals. Quiet weekend, never even left the house, but did copious amounts of cleaning, sigh. I wish I could convince hubs that dusting was something he enjoyed....hypnotism maybe??

    G'morning all. Thanks for the joe, Rich. We need to stock up on Troll Raid 'til school's back in session. It's only days away, right?

    Good morning, all. Happy Monday. I'm hoping for some decent summer weather here this week, looks like low 80's and low humidity. I hope everyone enjoyed the weekend.

    Wake Up You Slackers....You 2 Jerv-–it's Monday. Sigh.....Let's try and make it a good Day. Who wants some Columbian coffee?

      @ RH- Haha..I'm actually going to bed. Rode out all weekend. My training officer and myself hate each other, as I have never seen anyone with his ability to slander the entire human race without swearing. Are you on Facebutt? That may end up being the best way to keep up with me for now with this crazy new schedule. The profile address is FB/ and this screen name. Just an FYI I'm being slaughtered all over FB by an ignorant troll. Actually very hilarious. Anyway, did you have a good weekend?

      • RichardHead@ABK

        Truth and I are NOT on FB nor are we Tweeters or whatever they call themselves. Just call us Old Skool.....So your TO is an EOH ( an Equal Opportunity Hater )? Must make for some interesting rides. Just be Safe out there. Weekend was good....lots of relaxation.

        August 13, 2012 at 8:41 am |
        • angrybabykitty

          "Old Skool"" isn't a bad thing. Old skool stuff beats most new stuff anyway. TO is (for the most part) an EOH but mostly hates womenand any "they aren't from around these here parts" types. Always will stay safe :)

        Sorry that you have a difficult TO, especially since you're riding with them on duty. Unlike RH and Truth, I am of this century technology-wise, anyway :-) and will send you a friend request.

        • angrybabykitty

          I will look for it! I will have a few TOs, and when I'm shipped off to the academy in December, I will be free from him and won't get him again!

        I will never fathom the motivations of trolls. So sorry you're having to deal with that.

          This one was the best at slaughtering the English language that I think I have ever seen. And the "best" insults it had were "yoou wurship half eated big macs uoi oz stoopid".

      Coffee, yes, please!! Glad you and WD had a good, relaxing weekend.

      • RichardHead@MS

        Good Morning Ms. P....How's the Furries? Yep, had to recharge the batteries soooo we goofed off this weekend. It was nice.....How was yours?

        August 13, 2012 at 9:14 am |
        • Mary Shannon

          Goofing off is good sometimes. Dog furries are good, the kitty furry not so much. Best as I can figure she's 16-18 years old and is at the end of her 9th life. She's fighting hard, though, so I'm just trying to be there.

          I made a decision that this weekend would be positive and that actually worked...for most of it. I needed a drama-less time after the past 2 weeks.

      Excuse me while I perform a header into my sealed can of cola while half-asleep.

      This should do it.
