Atwood drivers are a determined bunch.

Yeah, we walk past that bank a lot and I've been watching the new pillar age and thinking they did a really good repair job on that. It's aging very well. Too bad about that other one.

Two down, two to go. The pillars on the Winnebago St side are going to be much more difficult to hit from Atwood. They'll have to use Winnebago instead.

And while I feel sympathy for the driver, I kinda hope that's the last time he drives.

Why does a day off go so fast and a work day drags?

That's a good question, since I think that in reality, time goes by at the same speed all the time. It sure doesn't SEEM like it though, does it?

Like if you're in a bar with friends, and you tell somebody you'll be leaving in five minutes, an hour goes by, and you're not even close to ready to go yet.

Anything less than 10% off isn't really a sale.

When the TP runs out and you make your way to the closet to source some more, don't just grab one roll, get two (or three!) and put the extras on the toilet tank. No additional labor involved, and you'll thank yourself next time you are spared from yelling "HONEY, uhhh... can you do me a favor??"

Just felt my (delicious corn) ears burning and now I know why! I very much apologize for my conspicuous, non-delicious absence from this Forum, but as we have been in a non-election season, I just haven't been able to bring much heat to the group conversation. I am contemplating further elected office seeking, as soon as I can clear up some lingering legal issues (no birth certificate, just a sell-by date).

However, thinking it over, what is summer if not WHEN Tacos are in season?

Tacos are always in season. Therefore it is always summer where there are tacos!

If I make a whole bunch of tacos will summer finally show up?

I'm wearing long pants and a sweater right now!

I think in most cases, the people who are going to carry a concealed gun are already doing it with or without the law. It's like that controversy a few years ago about making it legal to shoot feral cats. The people who would shoot cats were ALREADY shooting cats.

It's gonna be the coolness factor for a while. Newest fashion accessory, the handgun. The fetish people will love it with a stylish black leather holster.

And I heard the heat come on in my house during the night. Geez, Christmas is six months away either direction.

I have a love/hate relationship with shoes.
Also, there's a rather nice stand-alone basketball hoop up for grabs on the curb on the block between LaFollette and the bike path. I'd take it, but it's tall and that would be a leverage problem for me -- and it won't fit in my little car by any means. Also, my driveway is too short for it.
