Hay Ewes! Greetings from the casa...taking a well needed day off today and heading to Vegas for the first time in 24 years as a single lady...look out! ;)
Has anyone seen my bff around? RH has email he is not responding to!!
I've not seen him lately, but let me know if you need his info...Unusual that he would not answer unless he is working his azz off...
No word from me Bro' in a while. I'm leaning towards Turth's rationale.
Is Rich going to meet you in Lost Wages? 24 years. Man how time flies. Are you going anywhere this time that you didn't / couldn't / wouldn't with your ex?
I have friends who work in trucking and it is feast or famine, videlicet (WOD) you have to drop everything to meet your schedule and deadlines. I am sure he will turnip...(see what I did there?)
Thanks guys! Had a ruff weekend last week, but finally got him out of the house, so I'm home alone now and loving it, except this house is waaay too big for me, can't wait for my new place to be ready...
Not going anywhere new this time, since I've been many times before, nothing really new to see for me. Going where they comp my room, slot credit, and food credit! All that's left after that is push dollars in a slot machine and hope I win! Have a great weekend all.
Have a fantastic time, and good luck!!!
Positive thoughts for a steady cash flow increase. Have a blast!
Vegas baby! Have a great time! Love that place! Make sure ya stop & check out the Peppermill. Good place to take a break. Good luck on your gaming, too. 😃

Attention please, we have some Breaking News of our own here in the Klatch!
Our own Mary Shannon, WON the Spelling Bee last night. Please join me in giving her a HUGE round of A-P-P-L-A-U-S-E, applause.
(takes a bow) thank you very much, it was a team effort and we had a fantastic evening. We even get a trophy to keep in our library for the next year....we even beat out a team of doctors and a team of lawyers!!!
You beat out the people who have the worst penmanship EVER! Congrat's to you & your team!
Congratulations!!! I always knew you had a smarter stinger than the average bee! Was Turth's WOD the word you won with?
Very clever of you to catch that, yes, that was the word. None of the 4 of us had ever heard it before, so we made a good guess and wound up being the only team out of the remaining 4 who guessed right!
I forgot to mention something in my earlier post - wish me luck!! Tonight I'm a contestant in an adult spelling bee. Its all for charity, there are 23 teams of 4 people competing, along with numerous spectators and cheerleaders. I'm looking forward to a fun evening!
Given the amount that you read, you are going to wind up running the show. Good luck, and I wish I was there to cheerlead.
And your plans are FAR more interesting than mine...I am taking a UA for potential job stuff. Thankfully though, I think I am one of the half dozen people in the state who are clean. If there was money to be made, I think I would be spending my days peeing into gallon jugs...Those of you who know me well also know I am not exaggerating...:)
Best of luck! Try to remember to spell like normal people, not with mod botz in mind. Remember p o r n is spelled with an "o" not a zero.
Good luck to ya & take AleeD's advice. Lol!
Good morning all, from an unbelievably busy week in Denver. Hope this week is finding all of us doing well.
Long time friends...I have one ex gf who I am still close with after thirty years. Definitely not something you find every day. Have another that we waited thirteen years to even wade into that pool. Still close today.
#14 is about 20 miles from me. Impressive.
Wow, that's really beautiful. Have ya been there?
No. Never heard of it before, lol. Then again I've only lived here four years. Will def have to check it out soon. Website has a calendar of events. Guess a lot of plays are performed there.
I'm not much into plays, however, I did see the play, "Wicked". I highly recommend it, if they have it.
Good morning! Since its Thursday and we can't post throwback photos here, I am posing this TBT question of the day:
How long have you known your oldest friend and how do you know them?
I realized the other day that mine is a woman I've known for over 50 years....I was 3 and she was 1 when we met. Our families have been friends just about that long and are still friends today.
Hi Mary Shannon! I am still friends with many of my friends from kindergarten. Also, my friends from the middle school (grades 6th, 7th & 8th). That's where the grammar (north, south, & west) schools merge to one from this district. Yes, I still live in my school district. Everyone in our school got along & will be friends forever...have been for about 48 years now! (I suddenly feel old. Lol!)
Nice...and I know what you mean by feeling old!!
The funny thing is, we're not old! 90 is old. Lol!
Being as I'm only 32 my list is not impressive. But have several friends I've known since I was 7.
25 years is a long time to have same friends. Next thing ya know, you'll be saying you've been friends for 45 years! Time goes so fast.
Interesting question. I've known my optometrist since 4th grade & my hubby since ... well ... it's a long and complicated story. Suffice it to say I have known him not as long as my optometrist. My two closest female friends I've known since the mid 90's.
Turth on vacation again?
Dunno. Conspicuously absent......
Ok fine-is this better?
Dunno. Consp!cuously absent......
Stoopid Mod Botz....
Sooo...Pres. Obama came to see the Oso mudslide folks. And promptly mis-pronounced OSO. 4 times. 3 simple letters.
Hi all! Did ya have a nice Easter?
AleeD, idk where I've been or how I missed it, but, you had surgery? Are ya ok?
I wasn't real loud about it, but yes, I had day-surgery on 4/9. I R ok. Thank you for caring. Feeling a few twinges now & then, but I'm feeling pretty ok. I go see the doc manana for my final release before going back to work.
Wait ... um ... not that kind of release .... ~_~
Geez, I'm sorry you had to have surgery, are ya fixed? (not sure what ya had done) How did driving go? When I couldn't drive after a couple surgeries, I had either stitches or staples in my stomach. Hope you don't have that...ouch! Hopefully, you recuperate as quickly as Mary Shannon did!
Moderated? Your message should show up later, AleeD. Lol! (I swear, I said nothing wrong. 😆)
Thank you for asking. Saw the doc this morning and am released to go back to work on Monday. Am I fixed? ^_^ I don't know if that's even possible. Oh. Physically? Yes. ^_^
Lol! Glad everything is good with ya.
Howdy folks? How's tings?
Ess Sokay. Gonna try diving today. Should be interesting. First time since the surgery. Hoping the lobotomy helps with the road rage. ;)
Ah. That would explain the blank stare.....
0_0 That – and the oxy.
Glad you're doing well, have fun with the driving, hey, you can't be any worse than 90% of the other drivers on the road. Have fun!!
Especially in Floridork....
There were several dorks "floring" that day. We'll see how my tolerance is tomorrow. ;)
And some of their fast food "restaurants" have tip jars....
Not sure why, but this is one of my favorite pictures for Coffee Klatsch.
Good morning everyone. Hope everyone enjoyed/survived (Jdizzle/Truth) 4:20! The Cannabis Cup? Priceless!
Celebrated early on roadtrip to and from Volbeat on Friday. Awesome show, BTW. Studio quality. Trivium was good and Digital Summer better live than what I heard on YouTube.
How fun! I'm jealous. (lol) Did they play a long time? Sounds like it was worth the drive. 😃
We were right next to this guy recording.
Did they record the concert? That will be a must have! 😃
Sorry, I misunderstood. (should have watched video 1st) The guy you were sitting next to posted that on youtube? Why didn't ya stick your face in front of his phone/camera? Lol!
Some dude next to us did. Pretty good quality video but you don't quite get the thump and volume of the live performance.
Seems like they had a good light show, too! (still jealous. Lol!)
The sight left June horrified, however Evelyn was oddly intrigued......
