Title: The ORIGINAL 1000+ Posts Club
Post by: Phillip Dampier on May 16, 2006, 05:12:21 pm
Yes, a new level introduced today on BetterMost... the six star 1000+ Posts Club.  It's astounding, but we actually have a half dozen users nearing that magic number is just three months here.  If we have more people on here, I'd consider a Mile High Club forum with free drinks for members.  :)

I want to join the special club 1000+ posts club though.  I just know it's going to have great comfy chairs, great lighting, excellent food, and great company.  I wonder if we'll have a secret password? 

Will will get to watch BBM on IMAX every night?  The anticipation is killing me (and now I've added one more post!).

(One more post later... ;D)...

K..I'll be good, I won't abuse this just to get high number of posts!  :P

I mean do we really care about: "great comfy chairs, great lighting, excellent food, and great company ...and watching BBM on IMAX every night?"? 
Hmmm...I'll have to think about that for a lil bit.. :P

Oh yeah - I'd love to see stats about how long people spend in the chat room, although I suspect Chris (Slayers) wins hands-down.  He has a cot, a hotplate and a Port-a-Potty set-up in there so he never has to leave!

Brandon's count would drop to about 40..  lol..

I personally think they are Purple.

God, people actually agree with me here! :o Normally when I bring this up(which is surprisingly alot of times) people tend to think they are blue and not purple(although as you pointed out, Vic, there are the odd acceptions). Believe me I have gone into some REALLY deep conversations, almost verging on asking the questions about the meaning of life, that originally started as an innocent conversation about Blueberries. :laugh:
You watch, in a few minutes someone will tell me that they are Blue and force me to get on my "Blueberries are Purple" band-wagon again.

Oh look at that, I am now on 595, all this Blueberry talk is doing wonders for my numbers! ;D

I thought that you were posting in a manner reminiscent of Ennis - the taciturn, one word at a time kind of post, not overwhelming the reader with too much information, and making the full impact of each word hit home.  I felt the full weight of each letter you typed.

I was (I think we all were) deeply touched by the simple eloquence of your one-word posts David, and I'm not just saying that to add to my numbers...much.

That pic was supposed to be right after Ennis's Divorce, so it would be 1975 right?

It's just so courageous of you to talk frankly about this.  It's hard sometimes to be so open and honest in a public forum, but please know even if we don't all agree, we support you in your right to say what must be said.

There is another one that kills me everytime:
Mrs Slocombe was trying to get home in a hurry after work and I can't remember if Mr Humphries was the one who asked her why she was in a rush, and she said: 
"If I don't get home before 8pm, my puss* will be upset and I'll have the spend the whole evening stroking it! "  :laugh: ...
Do you also know that her cat is called "Tiddles"? lol!

Are you being served is the best TV show ever!

1976 is when I have my story (Ennis's divorce was final in Nov 1975) so yes, that pic is how they would look--although I have said before, I'd like to lose the sideburns.

Picture the ring on Ennis's finger, because that is the hand I put them on (right).

What did Heath say in that quote...something like, me and my mates, we like standing in our thongs, flipping weinies on the barbie?

The quote was like this:  (when asked what Heath did for Christmas in Australia)

"Me mates and I like to put on our thongs, grab our weinies and watch the girls go by"

He later was horrified that it was taken wrong!   LOL

Thongs being flip-flop sandals, weines being hotdogs because it is summer there in December and they B-B-Q at the beach!

And yet, I still feel so inadequate...  I'm barely in the top ten here.  I've got to start thinking of interesting BBM things to say.

Or maybe not.  It's not the case that everyone in the top 10 says intersting things, right?  They just keep posting.

Never in a million years...I don't like Randall, he ain't my type at all and in the timing of my story, Randall has never appeared on the scene...

That should give you a hint david, can you figure it out? It only came to me at 4:30 pm this afternoon, buzzing down rt 128 out of Boston...

Hmmm,  you said they were going to buy the mattress out of town.   But it is still Texas.   Hmmm,  wouldn't be Lureen.  She's at Newsome Tractors.     Wouldn't be Tom.  He is a teacher right?     Bobby Twist is too young....

EEEK!

Tom is an Assistant Professor of Economics at the Univeristy of Texas in Austin. He is not selling mattresses. Lureen works at Newsome's. Bobby is only 9. Lashawn doesn't exist (remember, my story takes place in 1976 so anything after that, in the movie, doesn't exist in my AU). And in case you get any real wild and crazy ideas. Alma, Monroe, Junior and Jenny are all up in Riverton...

  I said LaShawn as I figured maybe she worked there before meeting Randall.  But that is ok,  it would be hard to "write" her fast chatter.

Brandon, you are breaking my heart...not only did you get my pms, you replied. Let me quote you some of your scintillating prose:

"I'm homeschooled. Well actually today, I don't have anything but work"

This is the reason, lover, I can't get enough of you...

   Still,  I think I'd need to switch Dentists.   he he he!

They actually have Project Graduation after graduation...and every single student's backpack will be searched. No exceptions.

Proud, yes, if I can survive this week...did I tell you how he threw--oh, sorry, accidentally dropped--his 5 week old, very expensive iTunes+cellphone into Sebago Lake on Monday?

And with this exquisite post, I join the club.

HOORAY!

I am looking at a very old "Far Side" cartoon. It shows four cars buzzing down the freeway. Four dogs are sitting on the side of the road watching a fifth dog who has obviously just dodged the traffic to cross the freeway and get to his friends. The caption reads "All right! Rusty's in the club!" We can just change that to Leslie, I think.

I actually got this card when I passed my candidacy exam. That would have been June 1986, which makes this card 20 years old this month--where does the time go?

I'd scan it to post but I know Gary Larson & Co. are really really strict about using his images and I don't what Philip to get in trouble...so you'll just have to imagine it.

Thanks, Chris. It is a big day...and the part that is making me feel a little sad is that 4 years from now, he'll be graduating from college and his sister will be graduating from high school and I have a feelling like it will feel like 4 minutes, not 4 years...

This growing up stuff goes much too fast!

Oh well, you are so right, Leslie and David! Actually, I complained about it to the Basque who delivered them trophies. Asked: "Why didn't we get the Jack-and-Ennis-version?" He only said: "S'all we got."

I decided it was time for a change.

When I moved over here from IMDb, I kept my old IMDb name (lnicoll) because folks suggested we do that so we'd all know who is who. Well, it's been a few months and I am sick of being lnicoll, just because it is not so interesting. LOL. So...now my name is MaineWriter (which is my nom de plume over on fanfiction) but it is still me, Leslie.

I also changed the quote there down at the bottom. Notice Jack & Ennis's email address...you can write to them and they will write back. Jack loves being on the computer (much to Ennis's annoyance!)

I wanted to change my avatar but then I realized I am just not ready to give up the dozy embrace....

Let's all give her a round of applause when she gets back from what must be Father's Day festivities and posts her 1,000th.

G'morning Les!

    (rubs eyes)  I'm on chapter 49 of the second series of stories! 

  OMG!  that Ellery is too much!    I can't believe I've read almost 150 chapters in two days!   LOL    What an emotional rollercoaster.   

   Tell you what.. truth is, I've read so much fanfic between the Lazy L and Ennis & Ellery that the original story seems so far behind me now.   Almost a total flashback.
I am SOOO  ready for them to start filming either one of those stories.  With Heath Ledger and Jakey in their original roles of course.     Who should we cast as Ellery?

The story is addicting, isn't it? I sit here waiting, waiting, waiting for each new installment. Too bad we read faster than Louise writes (and Louise writes fast!!).

We had the conversation about Ellery a few days/threads ago, and Dee came up with this guy. In fact, didn't you come up with a picture of him barechested? LOL Louise approves of him but thinks he is too young, so we'll have to make him look about 10 years older.

Louise is the author of three stories, two are finished, the third is in progress. The first one is called "Taking Chances" and can be found here:

http://louisev.livejournal.com/2743.html (http://louisev.livejournal.com/2743.html)

The second one is "Looking for Answers" and can be found here:

http://louisev.livejournal.com/27985.html (http://louisev.livejournal.com/27985.html)

And the third one (which is in progress) is called "A Second Chance" and can be found here:

http://louisev.livejournal.com/50230.html

Now, Kelda, you need to realize that you are very likely going to give up the next 48 hours of your life when you start reading these. They are totally addicting. LOL. The premise: story starts in 1984, two years after Jack's death. Ennis has been doing some reading, research about queer life, trying to come to grips with Jack's death and who he is. In the process of reading, he sees an ad for a gay bar in Laramie, WY. The story starts when he walks into that bar...

Good Morning Cowboys and Cowgirls!

    Damn,  I'm all caught up on my reading.   What to do, what to do?
    :-\

I'd like to go out and buy a pair of cowboy boots.   But I'm on a tight budget.   But you never know when you will need a pair!     Actually, I was thinking I'm going to need them if I end up in New Yawk City for the next event.  ;)

Geez!   A two day event!    I wonder if Juan has an extra bunk for a travelling Cowboy?
I could jest borrow a blanket and grab a few winks before heading up to the sheep, er, Brokies.    ::)

Thank you, Leslie.  It's just lovely.  I was told I'd receive my statue at the awards ceremony, but seems I've been left off the mailing list or something, and I never got an invitation!?  I did e-mail my mom a pic of the statue, and she was just delighted at the outstanding accomplishment.  She e-mailed it on to all my relatives too.  But there seems to be something wrong with my e-mail, as I haven't heard back from any of them...

They're just jealous. Same thing happened with my relatives. And the green eyed monster really came out when they read some of my fanfic. They just can't cope with having such a talented person in the family, I guess.  ::)

(trips over coffee pot near campfire)  Clang-crash

"Dammit Jake!  I told you too clean that coffee pot and put it away before bed."

(Jake looks over from the bed and rubs his eyes)

"oh never mind Cowboy."

(I toss the empty coffee pot aside and climb back into bed with Jake)

"Yer on your own Leslie.  Jake says something big just came up and he needs some help"

Hi Jenny!

   Yeah, I agree.  The first guy is too.....pretty?  Too built?

The second guy is just right.    Black hair, kinda long, but not too long.   Nice body, but not a Gym god.  Lean and built for lots of sex.  LOL

although I think Ellery had longer hair.  Didn't he tie it into a pony tail when he went to Texas undercover?   Still, I like the look of the softer Ellery.   And the picture of him with the coffee cup is perfect!   

What do you think Leslie?    :)

Whoa!  How did I not come over to this thread to celebrate my 1000th post? 

Unlike some other whiners around here, I'm not going to complain about not getting a statuette.  No, what I'm going to whine about is that the moment I turned 1000, all the names switched from purple/red/black to red/black, so I never got to see my name in RED.  Could we please go back to purple/red, at least once, huh, please David?  I was really looking forward to it.

Also, does anybody remember the time that someone (I think Tom Hanks) hosted Saturday Night Live for the 5th time, and they had a sketch about him being introduced into the Five Time Hosts Club.  Elliot Gould, Steve Martin, Paul Simon all wearing smoking jackets and sitting in club chairs, reading the Wall Street Journal and saying things like, "Rah-ther, my good man." 

Anyway, as has been said, won't my family be so proud.

The first guy, definitely no. The second guy, maybe, especially the way his shorts are falling off. Ellery's denims or shorts are forever falling off his hips. I still like the Italian model guy, too.

I think Ellery's hair is longer than any of us are picturing. Yes, he pulled it into a ponytail for the bar visit in Texas and also on one of their camping trips, before they went riding. I asked Louise about this--how could he get away with being a long-haired cop--and she said that in the early days, Wes pestered him about it but now that he is higher ranking, Wes has given up and just accepts it. Plus, Louise said, Ellery keeps it very neat. But I still can't quite picture it...what does he do, tuck it behind his ears? It doesn't sound like he wears it in a ponytail, otherwise Ennis wouldn't have been so surprised when he came back from Texas.

And now we know that it has been long for years--it was long in college. Keep in mind that it's fairly thin--not thinning, as in going bald, but thin, as in texture. Louise has described it as thin and lank on numerous occasions. It is also straight. I wonder if he has some Native American blood in him somewhere (although he says his ancestors are from Scotland).

I am sort of thinking that it has been growing over the summer and he hasn't had time/bothered to get a haircut. When he met Ennis it wasn't long enough for a ponytail (I am picturing chin length) but over the course of the past three months it has grown and he hasn't gotten it cut, so now it is down around his shoulders somewhere.

I want you all to appreciate the great thought and consideration I have given to this FICTIONAL character!!

Maybe we should start a thread specifically devoted to discussing this story? There is certainly enough in there to discuss!

Sorry Leslie to burst your bubble but,

you don't get to be motormouth for getting to 2 000. You get to be motormouth only if you are the #1 motormouth of Bettermost - so you're like 1 200 post away from catching up to Vikki (but who knows, she might break all her fingers and be unable to post for some ... er ... 3 or 4 months)  :laugh:

True Leslie.  We can that Ennis and Ellery for those new recruits.

We have 110 new members this month so far.   We need to break 132 to beat the March influx of IMDB refugees.   Although we came close last month with 120 new members.


What do you think Jack?

Truth is Leslie, I'm not even in your league in trying to post beyond my means reach the next level of motormouthing recognition (yea, that's it ... that's the ticket).

Even if summer's only 4 school days away (yeehaw), I probably won't be posting any more during the next two months than I have in the past. (crossed fingers held behind your back allows for little white lies, right?)

G'morning Les!

    Yeah, that is a real goofy pic of Jack.  LOL.    That darn Pornstache doesn't help either.

    I was looking thru the screencaps for good pics of Ennis when he was the oldest.   Geez, he was pretty damn weather beaten and worn out looking.  He really only looked good when his face lit up, like when Ma Twist was taking to him. 

   Both he and Jack did age alot.   Neither has that fresh young man look about them anymore.   Even Ennis's Cowboy hat has lost its upturned sides.   It has losts its "perk" and gone flat.   Kinda like Ennis.   Age has worn him down just like his hat.  Tis no wonder that he can't "stand" it any more.

   Now Jack still wears a new Cowboy hat with upturned sides.   Does this symbolize Jack still has "Hope" and optimism?    It doesn't show in his face, but maybe the hat symbolizes that he can put on a good face about his failures.

And at the end, Ennis's hair looks so dry, like straw. All the little curls of his youth are completely gone.

David, I must respectfully disagree with you about this!  ;) At that point in the movie, I always wonder why I see so few 39-year-olds -- or for that matter, 29-year-olds or 19-year-olds -- who look that good.
Title: Re: The 1000+ Posts Club
Post by: David on June 27, 2006, 12:28:02 pm
I was more referring to his "look" as to compared to the younger Ennis in the movie.   The 39 yr old Ennis looks tired.  And I'm sure Ang wanted it that way.   He walks like an old man dragging his feet in the trailer.

When he smiles, his face lights up and you see that ol' twinkle in his eye like when he was with Jack.    Ennis needs Alma Junior to take him into Riverton for a decent haircut and a new Cowboy hat!       ;D

I think Vikki did that on purpose - though I don't see how she can stay away as long as Milli can!

Late this morning, David. You sleeping in?
Title: Re: The 1000+ Posts Club
Post by: David on July 03, 2006, 08:29:23 am
Good morning Leslie!
 
    Yeah, slept in a little today.   I hurt my back Saturday and it finally caught up to me yesterday afternoon.  I had to crawl under the dashboard of my old car to change a blown fuse and must have twisted myself wrong.  I'm too tall and old to be doing that anymore.    I need a nice slim young houseboy to do this kinda stuff for me!  Ha ha ha!

So I didn't sleep too well last night.   I feel like Ellery "where's my back brace?"  LOL

And I didn't even have a visit from Mr.Coyote to put me in this shape!    :laugh:

Seems like an epidemic of not sleeping well last night. I tossed and turned, "flippin' like a flounder" as Ennis would say. And now today I am tired. Oh well....

Simply because the "Laramie Saga" much like BBM, is so darned addictive!

I am soooo excited!    I just bought a PT Cruiser online from a Dealer in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina.   I never went there!   We are doing everything online, over the phone and in the mail.   They are shipping the car to me on a car carrier!
So i've been busy calling my Insurance agent and running to DHL to send paperwork back to the Dealership.

It is a 2003 with only 21,000 miles on it.   It has EVERY option they offered! 

Power Moonroof,  leather & Suede seats,  CD player, fog lamps, chrome wheels, power everything!      So not new, but new to me!      And a better vehicle for daily use when I start working again.   It should be good on gas and its front wheel drive for our wonderful snowy winters up here.    I wasn't looking forward to driving my 26 year old, gas guzzling, rear wheel drive Dodge next winter!

Yeah, I heard about it.   So very sad indeed!    :'(     I am fond of everyone involved.

I wish people would NOT talk about it on the board.   It is personal and airing dirty laundry in public is not polite.    It is so very sad that it has come to this.  And that's the last I'll mention of it on-line.

Um, I'm not sure.   The dealer just got the check and signed paperwork yesterday.  Depends if they hold the cashiers check until it clears or not.    If they don't, they said the car could be here in as little as 5 days.  Depends on the scheduling of the trucking company.   :-\

Actually, the kid on the right is Tommy Kirk. He was signed to a long term contract with Disney in 1955 and was one of the original Mousketeers. Yes, I believe this pic is from "Spin and Marty." In 1957, he starred in Ol'Yeller (first movie I ever saw in a theater!). He made a number of other Disney flicks. In 1964, when he was 23, his bosses found out he was gay and he was immediately released from his contract. His career went down the drain from that point on. He struggled with drug addiction and various other demons. At present, he runs a carpet and upholstery business, which is successful, but his acting career has basically been kaput since 1972--all because he was gay.

Good question.   Mapquest says it is a 13.5  hour drive non-stop.

The truck driver has to stop in Maryland to drop off some other cars on his way up.   That plus gas, food and an overnight rest?  

They said early as Sat night, late as Monday morning.    :-\

Actually, the kid on the right is Tommy Kirk. He was signed to a long term contract with Disney in 1955 and was one of the original Mousketeers. Yes, I believe this pic is from "Spin and Marty." In 1957, he starred in Ol'Yeller (first movie I ever saw in a theater!). He made a number of other Disney flicks. In 1964, when he was 23, his bosses found out he was gay and he was immediately released from his contract. His career went down the drain from that point on. He struggled with drug addiction and various other demons. At present, he runs a carpet and upholstery business, which is successful, but his acting career has basically been kaput since 1972--all because he was gay.

L

I forgot all about Tommy Kirk!  Yes he made a boat load of Disney movies when I was a kid.  That is so very sad what happened to him.  Just because he was gay?  Hell even in the 50's and 60's Hollywood was full of gay men.  The ignorance of some people is astounding.

So yesterday I was pacing around, looking at the clock wondering when the Stork would be bringing my new baby to me.

Around Noon my Mobile rings.   (mobile=cell phone.  I picked that slang up in London!)

"Hello?"

"Yes, this is the truck with your PT Cruiser, we've had a delay and we won't be up to Hartford until Monday around Noon!"

"Ok, call me when you get close".   Click.

*damn damn damn!*

Well,  I guess I can go out and do other stuff today instead of waiting for the Storks delivery.    :-\

   Yikes!   It was still 75 degrees Farenheit this morning when I peeked out the door at 5:00 am.  That explains why my air conditioners never shut off all night.

The headline of the paper this morning reads: "IT'S A BLAST FURNACE OUT THERE. Oh boy, it's hot, we're worried. Here's a little quiz. What was the high temperature in Portland, ME yesterday? Remember, it is a blast furnance out there and it was 104 deg F in Childress, TX all day yesterday.

Portland, ME, high temp (degress in F)
1. 76
2. 83
3. 91
4. 99

spoiler...

The correct answer is 83, although the paper says, "it felt like 88."


I can imagine people are reading this, laughing to themselves that 83 degrees can be considered a "blast furnace" by any stretch of the imagination....

Todays newspaper says that it hit 96 here yesterday.  But with the high humidity it felt alot worse!    Todays forecast is for 97

Last night at the Cruise Night I went to, it was still 90 degrees at 7:00 PM !   Attendance was low and people were leaving early.  My friends and I were drinking one bottled water after another and we were melting.   I finally gave up and hopped into the PT Woody and drove home in chilly Air conditioning!   LOL

According to the paper (I think this is the first time I have actually looked at the paper in 6 months, maybe I am getting over Brokeback Fever? Nah, never happen...)...

The first half of 2006 was the warmest in the US since recordkeeping began in 1895. The average temperature (excluding Hawaii and Alaska) from Jan to Jun was 51.8 degrees, 3.4 degrees above average for the 20th century.

Hello everybody,

Today is my daughter Hannah's 15th birthday. Fiftenn years ago today, we dropped Lance off at the neighbor's house, then headed to the hospital. Hannah was born at 7:41 am (c/section). Ha ha the OR was packed...I had 4 doctors (2 obstetricians, anesthesiologist, and pediatrician), 3 nurses, and my husband in the room with me! Everything went fine. She was a planned section because she was breech and 3 weeks overdue.

Thinking about it, it hardly seems like 15 years ago. Where does the time go?

     I'm heading to Watkins Glen , NewYork for a PT Cruiser show.   So i won't be posting again until later Sunday.

   I'm sure Leslie will be up in the 2000 posts catagories by then!   LOL

Saturday morning in Maine...damp and foggy right now. I suspect it will clear up.

Since David isn't here with the stats report...I'll have to pinch hit.

Lucise still leads the pack, followed closely by Victoria. Pipedream is the newest member of the 2000 posts club, with 2003. I'm next. David and Chris are neck and neck, although there probably won't be much change this weekend, as David is in Watkins Glen and Chris is in the hospital. Celeste is hanging out in 1500 land and Clarissa, Katherine, and Lee all hope to make 1400 sometime this weekend.

"I'M BACK!"  ;D

Phew!   Long drive!   

It was almost 6 hours to Watkins Glen, NY from Hartford, CT!      Fridays drive out was great!   It was mostly sunny the entire trip.   Route 17  has some real scenic parts up thru the mountains.    And Watkins Glen looks like a great place to live if you want rustic lakeside charm.  I had breakfast this morning at a local Mom and Pop family style restaraunt.   Those are the best places!    Unfortunately the morning greeted us with torential downpours which tapered off to a steady rain all day.     I was wondering if I was crazy for driving up there.   But when I arrived to the lakeside state park, there were already 100+ PT Cruisers lined up at the gate!    YAAA!   Wet insane Car folks!

Just one row of over 100 PT Cruisers on display lakeside!   
Mine is the dark blue one in the middle!

LOL, David!! I'm on the road myself, in my Prius. Not nearly as lovely as yours, but it gets good mileage and allows me to indulge my wanderlust. Had a good ride down I-25, the same route Jack would have taken from Wyoming to Pueblo, Colorado, where he probably veered off toward the panhandle of Texas. I kept going south though, stopping at Trinidad for lunch on the Colorado/New Mexico border. Then through the highlands of NM, Taos, Eagle's Nest, and Santa Fe, finally down into Albuquerque. It was a sweet ride. I was drenched by downpours, beaten on by the sun, and saw 15 antelope. Listened to some good music all the way.

And I only run this thing.  But I am told I could be like the captain of the Love Boat or the principal of a school.  I'm around, but elusive... almost mysterious... maybe even intimidating....  muhahaha....

Not really.

Is this going to become so new, secret Bettermost code word? Boobie fireworks....? Also, as I recall, us earlier members of the 1000+ posts club got a statue...I believe I am sharing mine with somebody. Who is going to share theirs with Phillip?  Oh, Phillip...you haven't seen the statue yet? Hmmm....we're STILL waiting for David to come up with the Jack and Ennis model. Give me a few seconds while I get mine out of the vault....

Post by: David on July 25, 2006, 07:18:16 am
LOL!   Funny that you say that Leslie!    We have plenty of Maine plates runing around down here in Connecticut.    Turns out a few years ago our safety inspections got real hard for some clunkers to pass.  So these folks discovered that you can register a vehicle in Maine without a safety inspection and you DON'T need a Maine address!

You mail in a check to the Maine DMV with your registration and they'll mail you back a set of license plates to Connecticut!   The don't care if you're not a resident!    And trust me, these old clunkers in the worst section of town are not folks with Maine vacation homes!    LOL.

Maine shouldn't allow this, but they must like the money it generates.  Connecticut DMV is furious at this, but they can't just pull over every car with Maine tags!    So they expect people to report their neighbors if they are doing this.  Yeah! right!

We can't make such creative plates here in CT.   We can't mix letters and numbers unless separated by a dot.   We don't have any of these "! @ # $ % & * +" symbols either.   (New Hampshire lets you use those too.)   Connecticut has strange vanity plate rules.   We are limited to six characters too. 

Here are Some I thought of:

BBM-FAN

LUV-BBM

TWIST

BBM-1

Morning L!

   Yup, it's 81*F  here already with a 72% humidity.  Yuck.   

My A/C units have been cycling on and off all morning already.

Hmm,  same temp as Childress, Texas I see!   LOL.

Greetings to y'all from the cool Rocky Mountains! Hey David and Leslie, is it time to fire up your respective cool cars and head west?? It's been so cool here that my heater has come on in the night the past few days!! (Just couldn't resist!) I don't even OWN an air conditioner. Denver's hot, but I'm at 7300 ft elevation on the Front Range (thus my name) near Buffalo Bill's grave on Lookout Mountain. Y'all are invited!!

Damn!   you aren't far from Wyoming are ya??   Lucky Girl!

I keep thinking I'd like to live out there if I could think of what to do to make a living. 

The isolation wouldnt bother me.   I live in a fairly large city now and seldom see people.
Then again, here I have the option of seeing people.   Like this Sunday, hopping a train to Manhattan to meet some Brokies for Brunch.     

I can so see myself out there in love with the scenery.  But pining away for my own Jack Twist to come "ranch up" with me.   :-\

Well, I'm in the state next to Wyoming, but states are a little different out here than they are in New England. . . Course we all make a living by roping steers or roughnecking. I rope steers in the summer, roughneck in the winter... Yup, it's isolated. You have to travel all the way downtown (about 12 miles) to see a Broadway show or a concert!! There are only about four Starbucks per block!! Terrible isolation! A guy could go mad!! You only see a PT Cruiser about once every 30 seconds!!!!!!!!!

 :-\  no offense was intended by the implication that you lived in a rural isolated environment.   Just the opposite. 

  This morning I recieved news and pictures from a buddy who just bought a house and land in Elizabeth, Colorado.   Just South East of Denver.    It sure looked pastural and rural to me.   And very appealing.   Except for the Starbucks.   I don't care much for their coffees.

David darlin' I dreamt about you last night! How is that for a wake up message??

We were going to the movies together. It was a HUGE theater and packed. I have no idea what movie we were watching but Heath Ledger was in it. The actual scene was one of those giant chess games where real people play the pieces. So we are watching the movie and then I notice we are holding hands. Suddenly, you say, "Ack! I can't hold your hand!" and I say, "Why not? I don't have cooties!"

and that is all I remember...LOL. For the record, I don't have cooties!

Was I wearing my Cowboy hat at least?   LOL    :laugh:

I gave up trying to anylize dreams long ago.   Whenever we dream of a specific person, usually it means we had contact or thought about that person the day before, even if briefly.   With as much time as we all spend online here I'm surprized that we all aren't dreaming of Wyoming!

Well, I do dream of Wyoming, but those are day dreams!  LOL     And I dream of Jake, but those are Wet dreams!    ROFLOL!

David,

We have been patient...gave you a job to create the Ennis and Ellery statuette, have you lots of time...nothing. I will just chalk it up to you're being busy with your new car and anxious about your new job.

To fill the missing gap for the 1000+ posters who haven't gotten their statue, my husband has lovingly created "The Chester." So here you go, folks, let me give each of you your own award. Enjoy!

Greetings from gate A17 at Logan International Airport, Boston, MA. Found a plug and wifi and I am in travler's heaven. It is raining here, go figure! David, my husband is driving to Darien, CT today (dropped me off on the way)...said he would wave as he whizzed by Hartford.

Hiya Leslie!

    CVG?    Been there many times!    I like the central food court they have there.  I usually fly Delta and they lay over at CVG for most flights.     Nothing better then grabbing some hot cinna-buns between flights!   The food!  the food!   LOL.

   Darien?   Shoot , my train to/from NYC stopped there Sunday.   Your Hubby should have just taken the train down from Bostons South Station.    The drive down I-95 is horrible.

I actually had some 4-way chili, cincinnati style for lunch...thought of Jack and his Joy of Cooking as I ate it.

My husband is delivering some pilasters to an expensive new house that is being built in Darien...pretty tough to take those on a train! LOL

Intrepid Traveler Trip Update...

I am now in Cleveland and have once again found a plug (this one was a bit more challenging) and wifi.

The flight from Cincinnati had a dress rehearsal in that they made us get on the plane, buckle our seatbelts and everything, then get off the plane and do it all over again on a NEW plane. The second rehearsal was satisfactory and they let the plane take off that time.

I leave for London at 7:20 this evening...

More later.

The good news is I arrived safe and sound.

The bad news is the my room won't be ready for awhile (maybe 3 hrs, grrr).

The good news is they have complimentary wifi everywhere. I can easily wile (while?) away 3 hours talking with you fine folks.

London checking in...slightly overcast, not too hot.

Take care, everyone.

Good Afternoon then Leslie!    Hopefully you are checked in by now!

If you get bored (yeah right) grab a copy of the local paper. There was an advert back when I was there for a nightclub that had a Gay night once a week called "Brokeback Mount-me".    Maybe you can go and see some Wayne and Lauren types dancing  ??

Good Afternoon Leslie!

     I hope you have plenty of time to walk around and see all the handsome men in London!   The streets are crawling with them during the work week it seems!  All in their dark pinstriped suits and proper haircuts.   Yum!

    I saw where your hotel is on the map.   Not too far from Hyde Park where I was staying at the Dorchester.     I probably walked right by yours.   I remember walking from the Marble Arch across past Selfridges Department store and over to Picadily and then thru covent Gardens.   

   Try to get over to see the Diana Memorial fountain at Hyde Park.   It is very peaceful.

Have fun!   And Mind the Gap!   LOL.

Greetings!!

Day two in London. I am wasting an incredible amount of time trying to get the Internet working in my room. They finally gave up on room 401 and moved me to 418. The good news is that 418 is 10x the size of my old room so I am much more comfortable. I also have a view of Oxford Street.

So....last night, jet lagged and all, I went off with my friends Linda and Margaret to see "Billy Elliott: The Musical." Folks, I have to say, this was the most INCREDIBLE show I have ever seen in my life. I thought I was in for an evening of entertainment and, in an eerie feeling reminiscent of seeing Brokeback Mountain the first time, I felt like it was life changing. Not the story so much (although the story is very powerful) but to see so much incredible talent present in every single detail of the entire performance--it just sort of blew my mind. My friend Margaret, who lives in NY and has seen many more shows than I ever have, also thought it was the greatest thing she had ever seen in her life. Truly amazing. If anyone is planning a trip to London in the near future, order tickets NOW. You'll be glad you did.

That's all for now...so far, not much sightseeing today....

Hmmmmm...I am?  In India?  It looks so much like Chicago outside my window.  I'm pretty sure I'm not in India...

But I tell you what Lee.  Fast or slow, I just like the direction you're going in.  Take over any time, honey.  I don't mind at all.

I just spent who knows how much time catching up on the last 20 pages of this thread.  Barb and I have been in a steady neck and neck the whole time.

Welcome to Jess (Injest) for joining the 1000+ post club, and so quickly too.  Way to go, New Girl!

And Celeste, I hope you are having a wonderful time in India.

Good morning from London....gray and dreary today. I am all packed and ready to leave momentarily. I must make my way to Birmingham, fly to Newark, then fly to Boston. From there, I get a bus and get home fairly late in the evening.

I doubt I will be online very much today. I am trusting David to hold down the fort without me.

G'Morning All !

    I start my first day today up at the Airport with the TSA.     It is an "Orientation" day, mostly paperwork, uniform measuring etc.   I'm not sure if it's an all day thing or not.    I'd imagine my on the job training could start as early as tomorrow.

   So Leslie, you'd better use your laptop at the next airport, you may be online more today than I will !   LOL.      I have a dinner meeting tonight as well.   I represent the Gay members of the Connecticut Antique Car clubs.  We belong to a State Wide group that has a State Legislative Rep at the Capital who monitors new Laws that may affect the Old Car Hobby.

   We feel it is important that the mainstream antique car clubs see that there are Gay guys who are into Old Cars.  It helps break stereotypes.

I am a little embarassed about overtaking Celeste-in-Chicago today, and feel compelled to explain that I had to clean my house over the weekend, which required taking numerous short breaks to check what's happening on the board and contribute my 2 cents. And then it so happened that I had to view the DVD in order to decide some bit of symbology or nuance, but I couldn't find the right place so I ended up watching a major part of the movie. And then Andrew mentioned a great Maine Writer (no a different one than Leslie) and I had to go to that site, read a few stories and comment on them. And then Truman told me about some great CSN&Y songs that I had to immediately go listen to while dusting. And then, I had to post some words on the ABCs game, which I'm completely addicted to. And then I had to develop, flesh out, and bring to denoument my character of Aguirre on The Performance which I am also completely addicted to. Needless to say, my house is about 1/3 clean today!!

I am at Newark Intl Airport, grabbing a few minutes of online time before I board my flight to Boston. It has been a long day...7.5 hour flight from Birmingham (ugh). But I should be sleeping in my own bed tonight which is something to look forward to.

Good luck with your new job, David. We'll all be waiting for a full report..... uniform, hmmm? Black shirt and black tie, perhaps? ;-)

And, once again, home safe and sound, Maine, east coast, USA, checking in.

Although London is great--wonderful restaurants, shopping, beautiful buildings scattered here and there--it is too big a city for me. I start to get twitchy with all those millions of people. I like my little house here in the country, trees and grass, river at the end of the yard. It is good to be home.

Howdy Y'all!

As Y'all heard on the news, the manure hit the fan today!    The Terror Threat level was raised to Orange, and even RED for international flights.   So all of us at the TSA are in high Alert.

     The importance of this job is really really in the spotlight right now.   The long training days plus trying to get everything else done doesn't leave me much leisure time.    I should be able to catch with BetterMost on Saturday for sure.

Indeed. It makes me angry the way people are reacting to the no hand luggage thing.

No hand luggage or no life? Let's decide shall we!?

I flew out a few days after 9/11 and had to limit handluggage to the essentials. Its really not that bad.

anyways! How was London leslie?

London was fine. The really hot weather had ended so the temps were pleasant. I was "Billy Elliot: The Musical" on Wednesday evening and it was FABULOUS. Definitely a high point of the trip. Louise arrived on Saturday and we had fun, talking about writing, doing writing, and just taking it easy. The conference (the whole point of my trip) was fair...LOL

And I really REALLY wasn't trying to break into the 1000 posts club.... I was just trying to salvage what I thought was the comic high point of my career from early in my BBM obsession.  But it put me over 1,000 posts anyway!

    I can just imagine Jack Twist stepping out from the tent into the morning sun. Jack pulling his coat closed a little tighter as he walked over to restart the fire so he can make Ennis some coffee.   As the coffee brews, Jack looks around at the beauty surrounding them.  Then he turns to the tent with a smile of contentment knowning his man was in there sleeping.

Sigh.....Paradise.

The convertible ride ended up at Ken's Seafood in Pine Point. I had fried clams and my husband had a crabmeat roll (which looked alot like lobster!). Then we drove through Old Orchard Beach and gawked at the tourists in their skimpy bathing suits, commenting on the nutritional value of a meal of pizza, french fries and fried dough (what they serve at Mario's Pizza, Bills's Pizza, and Lisa's Pizza!). After that, we stopped at the dairy barn for sundaes (I can't remember the last time I ate a sundae on Sunday) then came home and took a nap.

All in all a pleasant Sunday afternoon. Now it is Monday and back to work...

7 PM and enjoying the approaching Connecticut sunset.     Sorry I didn't post my usual morning greeting Y'all.     I actually was online at my usual 5 AM, but I was busy answering PMs.    Then it was time to saddle up and mosey on up to the Airport for more classes.

I'm on tonight catching up on Ennis and Ellery.  Plus drooling on any new Jakey pics.   ;D

Amazing, Chris! You're still in the top 10. How do you do it? Besides writing your posts one letter at a time, I mean.

 :laugh:

Me, I leave town for a weekend and I slip down a notch. I'll be out of town for a week starting tomorrow, and am afraid I'll lose my top-10 membership! Maybe I'll try that one-letter-at-a-time technique. Except I'll do it with one of my typical rambling 500-word posts.

well if alllll we're going to talk about is the weather...

there are a million clouds in the sky with little patches of blue.  We had a terrific rainstorm last night and it poured down all night long... and that is sort of nice to sleep to, all that white noise.

UGH!    Last night I was home sitting here with goosebumps and a headache.     I'm not a doctor but I know what that means.   :P

Sure enough, I was so achy I was barely able to get off the couch.    Climbed into bed and pulled the covers tightly up to my head.  Not a good sign when it is like 75 *F in the room.

Still kinda groggy this morning.   Dammit.   I hate being sick.  I sure hope I am 100% by Monday!

A week of real work knocks you off your feet, huh, David? Or maybe being contact with people again and being exposed to all those BUGS.

Take two tylenol, stay well hydrated and take it easy. Feel better my friend.

Hunh, that describes me the last two days.  I feel way better this morning, but still kind of "fragile."  I guess we may have gotten it from each other, now that we are co-moderators and all.

Hey, I notice that our 1000+ posts thread is about to celebrate 1000 posts.  I wonder who will post that 1000th post?

Sorry you're under the weather, David!! Be careful when you go to the doctor, I didn't think much of the doctoring they did to Chris! I'm glad I'm not the only one who's freaking out about her firstborn going off to college. Front-Ranger Jr. will be leaving for Boulder, Colorado, tomorrow and I'm a nervous wreck! I had a mountain of laundry to do last night, most of it clothing from Ireland and India that has to be hand-washed. When I got home from work I went thru the house and noticed a lot of things missing!! She actually packed our digital camera, teakettle, one of my paintings, the phone charger, and on and on...!! What's next?!

Okay, so it is Thursday and Lance drove himself off to college at 6:40 am. Sigh...I can't quite believe it. We are supposed to go to NY to see him next week so I guess that buffers the leaving feeling a little bit. Still, my "baby" is gone.

Weather is cool this morning. They say we are due to have some fall-like temps the next few days.

Leslie, I myself am feeling deprived because I could not take off from work to go help my daughter move into her dorm. My husband is handling it all. I went in and woke her up so I could say goodbye to her this a.m.; she probably didn't appreciate that much. At least we each have another one at home; I took my 14-year-old son to school this a.m. and told him I'd pick him up after band practice. He is surprised at all the attention he's getting now!!

Hope the sick-abeds are feeling better today. I think I'm sick too...have felt like my head is full of cotton for about a week. But it doesn't make any difference, gotta keep slogging anyway!!

Maine checking in with a college update.

Lance left yesterday at 6:40 am on his way to college in Oneonta, NY. From our house it is a 350 mile drive, all interstate though, but still, the longest drive he had ever made by himself. Around noon, he calls to say he is 40 miles from Oneonta and he thinks he lost his wallet at the rest area he had stopped at previously to buy a snack and a drink.

He says he has searched his car but can't find his wallet. He wants me to call the rest area and see if anyone has turned in his wallet. To call the rest area, he says, "Look it up on the Internet." He thinks (but can't remember) that the rest area was about "an hour ago" "near Albany" or "50 miles away."

It is impossible to look up rest areas on the Internet, I discovered. After discussing this, and getting my husband and the phone, we tell him to turn around and go back to the rest area to see if anyone has turned in his wallet.

He calls back a little after 2 pm. He is at the rest area, no sign of the wallet. It turns out the rest area is in Blandford, Massachusetts--by my reckoning, about 110 miles from where he had been. So much for "near Albany" and "50 miles away"! He asks at all the restaurants and leaves his name and number with the manager of the gas station. By this time he is feeling it is pretty hopeless. He gets back in the car and starts driving back to Oneonta...again.

A little while later, my husband calls with the name of a couple in Troy, NY. The husband is a truck driver and picked up Lance's wallet from the ground at the Blandford MA rest area. Lance and my father have the same name so when they called information, they got my dad's phone number (of course, Lance isn't in directory assistance!). Anyway, the wife was as nice as could be and was going to run out to the post office (it was 4:15 pm by now) to mail the wallet to Lance before the PO closed. I had his proper college mailing address which is how come I ended up on the phone.

Everything was intact in his wallet: Bank of America card, MY LL Bean Visa card, and few pictures, and $1. I didn't ask if a condom was in there. I had had enough excitement for one day. I didn't need any extra information.

So, in the end, all's well that ends well...and thank God for honest people in the world!

My daughter's move-in to her college dorm seemed to go smoothly, yet I'm a nervous wreck! If she had lost her wallet, I would be a blubbering idiot by now, Leslie!! Thanks for that story, it's good to know I'm not alone. My guilt and feeling of deprivation at having to work the day of the move resulted in me having a bad dream, which if for some odd reason U want to know the gory details, I put them in "Our Daily Thoughts." The wonderful thing is that I have received 2 emails from her already telling me about the great time she is having!! And to top it off, I got to do a video chat with her last nite in her dorm room!! She even rotated her monitor around so I could see her room (really nice with a vaulted ceiling and 2 windows) and "meet" her roommate!! I love the video chat feature that comes standard on the new macs. Our mac at home is about a year old, so we had to rig up a videocorder to it, but it worked well enough. I even did a screen grab of her smiling face, which I put on my screensaver. So, I guess I'm a happy camper today!! Hope everything goes smoothly for Lance today.

Kind of an overcast day here in CT.      I'm still not feeling 100%, but may actually feel 1% better.  LOL.     I did take a long walk this morning.

And get this, my Doctor called this morning to see how I was doing!   On a Saturday!   AMAZING!   I'm not sure if I should be flattered or worried!    LOL

G'morning All.

   Cloudy again here in CT today.   Up early and had a nice long walk around 6:30 AM.      Took the old cars out for a short drive to stretch their legs too.    May actually cut the front lawn later this morning.     

  I still feel kinda out of sorts, but maybe getting back into a routine will help me feel better faster.     I think I'll try to get to work Monday morning.  4 am  YUCK!    LOL.

A Limerick in Honor of Toast's 1,000th Post

Let me tell you 'bout my friend named Toast
In the ABCs game he's engrossed,
He keeps posting away
(Sometimes ten times a day)
Now, with 1,000 posts, he can boast!

Well done, Toast!

I guess I have to show up here and make a post.

Horo35, Dude, I know you mean insane in the "good" sense, but sometimes I
wonder.
Maybe I need a quick trip to Alberta to view the sites, and then I can get Brokeback out of my system.  Oops that would probably make it worse. 

The rumor about me posting 10 times a day was started by someone who was there and who can count. 

Now I should start my 12 step program.  mmm .. I wonder if twelve has been posted yet on the ABCs ..

The way to do this is to go to the complete list of members and click on the "Posts" column in order to sort the members by number of posts.

As proprietor of the laundry room here at BetterMost, I know how to sort!!  ;D

And wasn't it a famous Oiler who said, "I go to where the f**k is going to be"?? I better stop now, but notbasket said it was time for us to get silly...  ;D

Hola!

    Thursday I think.    This getting up at 2 AM is taking its toll on me!     It is nice geting out of work by 12:30 pm,   but my legs and back ache something fierce by then.

    But I am enjoying the new Job.   I like working with the travelling public.   They all seem to be very cooperative going through the security checkpoint.   Seaching for explosives and weapons is very exciting.   Although all we find really are prohibited Liquids, toiletries and sometimes pocket knives or butane lighters.

   I really enjoy it when people come thru with their pets!     The little kids are fun too.   Some are scared of the machines, but alot are excited about going thru the new machines.

   As for my health,  that is improving I think.   I still dont feel 100% yet.    My doctor just had me run a second batch of blood tests to see why I am still running a low fever and fatigued.     

   Of course, the crazy job hours and being on my feet 8 hours doesn't help.     But we do what we have to do.

   Y'all may not see me online much, but I do check in everyday.   I gotta get my fix of Ennis and Ellery ya know!   LOL.


   Hope you are all well.

Hi Leslie!

    I think we are due to get some rain here in CT too.   No Hurricanes though!

Week two of my Flu like virus.    This weeks blood tests are much better.   Everything that was low last time is back to normal except my Potassium level, which actually dropped.   go figure.    So my Doc gave me a perscription for Potassium tablets to take to get my levels back up.     Guess I should eat more Bananas!    ;D

   Let's see.... 4:38 pm.   Time for bed soon.   This getting up at 2 am is still kinda weird.

Mushrooms also are good for potassium, and with all that rain, you should have lots of them! Hope you feel better soon David!! I am starting to come out of my empty-nest funk after my firstborn slinked off to college. Part of my problem was that I wanted to slink off with her!!

For achieving 1,000 posts, in great part from playin' the "ABCz of BBM", including today "D" Dee with your "E" for "exited"! ;D

Thursday morning and it looks to be a beautiful day here in Maine.

Today is my daughter's first day of high school. We are very excited because she will be enrolling in the Casco Bay High School here in Portland, ME. This is a new school--just created last year--with funding from Outward Bound and the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation. CBHS is one of twenty new high schools in the US that have been founded on the principles of expeditionary learning. From the Gates Foundation, "The Expeditionary Learning Outward Bound school model stresses learning and self-discovery through doing (action), teamwork, reflection, character growth, and literacy."

Hannah is very creative and bright but has not done well in a traditional academic environment. We are hopeful that the expeditionary learning model will be what Hannah needs to help her learn and reach her full potential. It is thrilling to me that Portland has one of these twenty schools and we are able to take advantage of it for our daughter.

Here's to a great school year!

First year? Ninth grade or tenth? Freshman or sophomore? Sophomore carries a sort of distinction, you know.  ;)

Seriously, best wishes and good luck to her!  :D

Thanks, Jeff. She'll be a freshman. Although knowing CBHS they'll probably be coming up with new names for all the classes. Every student is part of a "crew" (team) because in the words of the prinicipal, "There are no passengers on this journey. We are all part of the crew."

My son's a freshman this year too, but it's no big transition since he goes to a combined junior/senior high school. He has either marching band practice or cross-country practice after school every day of the week, so I get to stay late at work every day and then pick him up. That's why you'll be seeing me around here a lot still!!  ::)

7:30 in Maine and it is sunny but there is a definite feeling of fall in the air. Boy, this summer flew by and I feel like I missed most of it.

Two weeks from today, a group of us will be gathering in Boston for the New England Brokie Get Together. David, I know you are busy with your new job, but will you be able to join us for part of the day? Please?

Hiya Leslie!

    I don't think I'll make it to Bean town for the movie.   The hours are just not working out.

   This morning after doing three loads of laundry by 5 am,  I decided to drive to Cape Cod and meet some friends for an early lunch.   I figured I could leave after lunch and still be home in time for my rediculously early 6pm bedtime.   Well, I had the pedal to the metal in the LeBaron and got grabbed by a Massachusetts Trooper doing 80 in a 55 zone!    Doh!     Stupid move.   And a $250 fine to boot.

Needless to say I turned around and went home.    :(

Greetings to you Easterners, I'll hold down the Western front of the 1K posts club. Hey, David, take it easy on the coffee today, will U Bud?! Take it from personal experience, there can be unintended results when U arise at 5 and start chugging caffeine!!

My empty nest syndrome is starting to abate somewhat. I did have to run up to Boulder yesterday and see the college student, attend the Pride Block Party, and meet a fellow Brokie, Lauragigs!!

Tuesday moroning in Maine, 39.5 degrees out there....and yes, folks, I am going to get my bony llittle ass into the outdoor shower. (Gee, I wish it was bony!). Think of it as nature-hydrotherapy or something. Water toture. Hot shower in the cold air. Something....

Good early morning Brokies!

3 am and I'm brewing coffee and doing laundry!     a little too early for another top ten list though.     Want a weather report?    (looks out window)   Dark.   Um,  street looks a little wet still near the street lamps.     Newspaper will not be here for a while yet, so I haven't stepped out yet to check the outside temperature.   I'm guessing low 60s for the overnight temp.

OK,   catcha y'all later then.

oh and it was a hectic day for me at work today.      If you saw the news last night, the TSA has revised the list of toiletries and other liquid items that can be taken thru the Airport Security checkpoint.

Newsflash!    Small "trial-sized" (3 oz. or less)  mouthwash, toothpaste, etc can be taken if you put them in a "quart-sized" clear ziplock baggie.

Baby food, liquid medicine and liquids required by diabetics can be taken if over 3 oz, but these items must be taken out and "declared" to the checkpoint TSA agent.

Also, if you buy any beverage after you've gone thru the checkpoint you may now take that beverage onto the plane.

I'm sure the rules will change again!   LOL    If in doubt, just go to the TSA.GOV website the night before your flight to read up any any last minute changes.

Being properly prepared will greatly reduce your wait time in line.

Of course if you are really smart, just pack all your toiletries and liquid meds in your "checked" baggage.   Then everything can go regardless of size.

See you at the Airport!

David   :)

     Unfortunately it is because of my uniform shirts and pants.   I am not spending the money to dry clean them, so I make sure I pull them out of the dryer right away and hang them up so they look fresh without ironing them either.   LOL.

    Alas, there haven't been any gentleman callers lately to generate any dirty laundry, but thanks for the chuckle Lesle!   :)

Sunday morning in Maine. The weather does not look fabulous today...maybe it is a day for a movie?

Hannah arrived back from Outward Bound safe and sound. It sounds like she had fun and survived the week mostly unscathed, although she does have a big bruise on her leg. I was expecting the "visionary life changing experience" speech from her, but I didn't get one. Maybe that will come later after she has had a chance to process the week more. Or maybe not. Hannah likes to sail, she is used to being on the water, and maybe this wasn't a real big deal for her. She did say she learned to navigate, which she was pleased about.

Good morning Leslie and all!

     It is still dark out, but when I opened the door to get the newspaper it felt pretty warm out.    It is supposed to get up to 80*F  here today!

     Despite my new works hours, I still end up waking around 5 am.  Still, thats better than 2am!     

    I've been watching the X-men movies on TV this week.   Hugh Jackman is certainly very yummy if you can look past the hair and make up.     I'd love to see him star in the Laramie Sagas with Heath!     Image the love scenes!    ;D

Good morning, all!

Warm here this morning...66 degrees. Looks like it will be a nice day today. This evening, I will be attending a big fundraising dinner for breast cancer (remember everyone, October is breast cancer awareness month!). Ladies, 40 years and older, have you had your mammogram for 2006? If not, take this as a reminder to schedule one before the end of the year. Mammograms do save lives!

Good morning! Let's start with the weather report first. 46 degrees here in Maine, and still dark enough at 6:19 am that I am not sure what the weather is going to do today.

So, last night I went to the breast cancer fundraiser with Hannah and Tony. This was the first time Hannah had ever been to an event like this and she seemed to enjoy herself. I taught her how to bid at a silent auction and she won a very nice pair of turqoise, pearl, and spiny oyster earrings. Then they had a live auction. I am not sure what got into me (it might have been Hannah nudging me in the ribs) but I got into a bidding frenzy against Dan of Rowe Ford. Lori Vornas (a DJ on a local radio station) was egging me on too. So anyway, when all was said and done, I had spent LOTS and LOTS of money on a chair (of all things!). Okay, so it is a really, really nice chair. Really nice for sitting and watching Brokeback Mountain on TV perhaps? Of course, now I need to redecorate my home to find a place for it. Ack!

THis is a special day at work. For $5, we are allowed to wear jeans on this day only. The money goes for breast cancer research. They are developing a blood test for breast cancer. Wouldn't that be nice, not to have your boobs flattened when that x-ray machine throws U every year? (ouch) So, I decided to go all BBM in my Rockmount Western Wear shirt (the model that Jack wears in the post-divorce scene), beaded belt, and bolo tie. Sure wish I had a snazzy khaki jacket with laces like Jack's.

It was a chilly morning here too Leslie.   I woke up to the sound of my furnace running.   I love that sound.   I hate being cold.

Today did warm up enough to wash the cars.   I even cut the lawn.    I love New England in the Fall.   The leaves are showing some colour already.    :)

Convertible weather indeed!    Too bad I sold mine in the Spring!   :-\


I am however going to look at a 1980 Chrysler Town & Country wagon forsale tonight!     It will look nice parked next to my 1980 Chrysler Sedan!   ;D

I'll sell my 1980 Dodge to make room for it.

Older Chryslers are like potatoe chips.  They are cheap. You can't have just one.   And you end up with greasy hands.    :laugh:

Post by: MaineWriter on October 09, 2006, 08:09:37 am
My parents had a Town & Country wagon, and 1980 is probably about the vintage. It had brown velvet seats (or velvet like material) and wood paneling on the side. I have always liked station wagons with that woody look.

Title: Re: The 1000+ Posts Club
Post by: David on October 09, 2006, 08:40:18 am
Alas, this one doesn't have the fake wood panelling.   :(

It is real hard to find one with the wood that isn't all warped, pealing or rusted under it.    They made less non-wood ones actually.

The one I'm looking at is White (no wood) with a red interior.   I'll post a pic after I take some.

Here are some "File photos" of 1980 Town & Countrys with and without wood.   Again, neither are the one I'm looking at.

Another nice morning in Maine...44 degrees.

We are all feeling a little sad here this morning. Our good friend and faithful companion, Jessie, went to the Rainbow Bridge yesterday. Jessie was a retired racing greyhound and was 12 years old. Jessie (her racing name was How Kwik Jessie) raced for a year and came to live with us when was 3. She was on a "kill list," ie, we rescued her off the track. She was a wonderful pet and will be missed.

Just this side of heaven is a place called Rainbow Bridge.

When an animal dies that has been especially close to someone here, that pet goes to Rainbow Bridge.
There are meadows and hills for all of our special friends so they can run and play together.
There is plenty of food, water and sunshine, and our friends are warm and comfortable.

All the animals who had been ill and old are restored to health and vigor; those who were hurt or maimed are made whole and strong again, just as we remember them in our dreams of days and times gone by.

Sorry for your loss Loss Leslie.      I have a friend in Florida who also rescued an ex-racing Greyhound.   What nice pets they make. 

Now she can chase real rabbits with lots of energy!    RIP Jessie.

Wednesday am. 46 degrees in Maine. They said it would be pouring rain today, but so far it is clear.

A good looking man just appeared in my backyard. I love it when good looking guys just appear...but it is probably just as well that I was NOT in the outdoor shower (where I was 10 minutes ago! LOL). Who is this good looking man? The propane delivery guy, of course!

LOL!  Indeed Jeff!   

I used to be into model railroading.    I had a Lionel set as a kid.  Then switched to HO scale so I could have more trains in less space.   Then even switched to N scale to really have a small town on a 16' x 4' board.      but once I got my drivers license the trains were put away.     I eventually gave them away to an older guy in my car club who was still into trains.    His whole attic in his house was one giant HO railroad.

So I guess when we're young we want our toys to get progressively bigger.  ( not unlike centain parts of our men!  LOL )      Then as we get much older we want the toys of our youth again!

But you are right.    Cars take up WAY too much space.    It is a pain moving them around so i can use them all occassionally.    I'm going to sell my 1980 Dodge so I can keep the two 1980 LeBarons.   The new PT cruiser will stay of course.   Maybe the PT is my "downsized" toy?   Does that mean I'm getting older?     <no replies please!>   :P

Makes sense, David, though in my case I still want trains. I just want MORE of them!  :o  ::)   :laugh:

Of course, in my case, I don't have any place to park a motor vehicle, so. ...

Plus a model train is the only way I'll get to drive a steam locomotive.  ;D

All this model train talk gives me the opportunity, yet again, to quote one of my all time favorite movie lines:

Jennifer Coolidge as Amber Cole, in "A Mighty Wind"

"Thank God for the model trains, you know? If they didn't have the model trains they wouldn't have gotten the idea for the big trains."

This line cracks me up, every single time.

Raining here too, David, and 51 degrees. Okay, so it has warmed up from the past few mornings but it is still dark. When do we change the clocks? Then it will be light again at this end of the day, for a few weeks.

I actually hate it when we change the clocks in the fall. I really feel like winter has descended upon us.

At least beginning in 2007 Daylight Saving Time begins earlier than it used to, the second Sunday in March instead of the first Sunday in April. Beginning in 2007 those of us on the East Coast will be on Daylight Saving Time more than we will be on Eastern Standard Time.

   Same here.  52*F and no rain.   It is supposed to get up to 69*F today, although partly cloudy and chance for rain/thundershower tonight.

A new dilema!  I don't have garage space for my new wagon and nobody makes a car cover for them!    At least none that I've found yet...   ???

Weren't you going to sell one of the other cars? You could also rent a self storage space (although that costs money). I have heard people store cars in those.

How big is your garage, anyway?

Our garage (1 car) is home to the lawnmower and lots of other junk, so my nice convertible sits out, year round. On snowy days, I think about blowing up the lawnmower, I really do...LOL

Hi Leslie,

   Yes, the big ol Dodge is forsale.   Four cars is just too much to keep moving around.    I only have a one car garage as well.   But I can park up to 7 comfortably in my driveway!    But 6 of those would be in a single row!  LOL

   Hopefully the dodge sells this fall.   Then just the wagon and PT Cruiser will be outside.   Even if I had the $27,000 to build a new two car garage, my property is pretty small and the City Zoning most likely wouldn't allow it.    What I need is a two car garage that is double deep so i can get 4 inside!    The three cars plus a bay for the mower and other lawn stuff.    Nah, you know me, i'd put a 4th car in there!    LOL!

Same here Leslie.   Light rain here this morning.   The sun never broke thru yesterday either.   

  So today is my Tuesday.  But then again, it is also my Weds!  (I work Thurs, Fri, Sat & Sundays now.)

  The Airport was a Zoo yesterday.  Alot of people fly out on Thursdays for a long weekend I guess.    Connecticut Senator (and Presidential hopeful) Joe Lieberman came thru my checkpoint yesterday.  VIPS get to cut to the head of the long lines.   You'd think he'd be better to wait in line like everyone else to meet people, shake hands etc etc.   

  I was actually more happy to unexpectedly bump into my Best friends Father in line.   :)

Just as long as the water coming out of the shower is not ice, you'll be fine!!

Here in Casper, Wyoming, it's hovering at freezing with a dusting of snow on the ground.

Wednesday am

An interesting snag in the shower department...the indoor shower is leaking and needs to be replaced. Handyman husband is on the job but that means we all need to move back outdoors for the next five days...or maybe move to the Holiday Inn!

An update, for anyone who cares...

These are the pleasures of living in a 200+ year old home (our house was builit in 1803). Rooms are small, awkward and weren't designed for modern conveniences like plumbing or electricity.

At the moment, I have a hole in the floor where the indoor shower used to be. That bathroom also included a sink and toilet which are now both gone So I have been reduced to a 1/2 bath household....

but we have the outdoor shower.

but it is freezing.

But...there is the Holiday Inn.

Stay tuned, folks.

Thursday am, 32 degrees

Frost everywhere and dark. No indoor shower, just a giant hole in the floor. I am supposed to go to Lowe's or Home Depot today and buy a shower. Hannah and I want something Scandinavian, with a heated floor. My husband just rolled his eyes. Do they sell Scandinavian showers at Lowe's? I have no idea. I have 38" to work with.

Decorating ideas are welcome!

with this one. Yeah!

By the way, I went and saw "The Prestige" yesterday. Very, very good. Lots of twists and turns throughout.

I recommend seeing it sort of "cold," that is, don't read lots of reviews, IMDb, etc. There are lots of spoilers out there and if you really want the full effect of the movie, you should not know much more than it is about two magicians.

I recommend the Prestige and yes, the male eye candy is very easy on the eyes. Scarlett Johanssen looks good too, for people who like to look at Scarlett.

Hot water and a warshrag? Maybe for you, cowboy, but I'm a city girl! LOL

Oh, come on, you take showers outdoors in Maine in October, and you can't get along with just a basin of hot water and a warshrag?  :laugh:

I've laughed, (and laughed, and laugher) and cried, I've made mistakes and sometimes gotten lucky with comments that managed to put smiles on others. I've found what participation I was most capable of, and, some 7 months later, here I am - achieving what others have managed in mere months (and in Jess' case, mere days)

Okay, so it's 29 degrees out there this morning, the shampoo is gelatinous goo and I am taking an outdoor shower. Fortunately, there was no wind or rain. Now the men on this list, explain to me, please...what possesses a man to wait all summer long to fix the shower and decide to do it in the waning days of the outdoor shower season. Huh?  What happened to August?

Hey Roland,

Congratulations! Back in the old days, we gave out statues and things. Now we just give pictures of good looking men. We had a heated debate in chat yesterday whether this guy is sexy or not. I think he is....others didn't. You tell me.

He seems fair enough with them pecs, but ain't that just Lance Armstrong with no shirt on?

Hmm. Survives cancer. Dumps his wife. Dumps Cheryl Crow when she has breast cancer when he himself is a cancer survivor.

Sometimes handsome is as handsome does.  :-\

It is 45 degrees so at least the shampoo won't be frozen, but it is RAINING. This character building stuff is getting old, fast. Anyone know anything about heated floors?

Off to nature...

Leslie, how did your shower shopping expedition go? As it is now, you don't even have to turn on the water to take a shower! Regarding Katherine, I have had a little talk with her about TGDBOAU situation, and she promises to remedy it. I think that calls for a horserace between Katherine and Clarissa!! How about if you threaten to cut the loser off, David! Mustn't waste bandwidth you know. As for Lance, I think he's sexy, but it's getting close to the full moon, so it don't mean nothin'!

The shower shopping was fine. I basically found the exact same thing as we had before. This new bathroom really isn't going to be any different from the old one, except maybe the walls will finally be painted. And there is some talk about putting up heated towel bars. And maybe a heated floor, if I can figure out what's involved.

I go without the Internet for 18 hours and look what happens! Yee-haw!

We had torrential downpours, wind, rain, power outages and internet outages. What a day and night. Today is sunny but windy. Very windy. Makes for a brisk time in the outdoor shower...yes, still there. The indoor shower has been purchased but not installed--hopefully today.

We have abandoned the heated floor but I am still hoping for a heated towel rack. I'll keep ya'll posted.

Sunday evening update...

I was promised a new bathroom by the end of the weekend. It is 8 pm and guess what? The bathroom is not finished. (I am not surprised). Worse, I have just found out that as part of this renovation project, he has disconnected the heat. Yes, the HEAT. So now I have no bathroom and no heat. You guys are probably wondering why I put up with this....hee hee hee  I will leave that to your imagination.

I am watching Capote....Hoffman is good in this, very very good...

I will be showering outdoors again for the forseeable future.

Wind sends crane crashing

165-foot crane being used at a construction site at Maine Medical Center in Portland fell onto three buildings on Ellsworth and Wescott streets Sunday morning. This was the scene as viewed from Maine Medical looking out onto Wescott Street. The white house on the right fronts Ellsworth.

Hi Leslie!

   Same here.   Saturday was the heavy rains and yesterday was the high winds here too.     No storm damage at my house thank goodness.   Just some flash flooding on some of the streets.    The high winds did blow some of the leaves out of my yard!    Yay!    Plenty of small branches to go pickup however.

   I love Mondays!    Well,  now that they are my Saturdays!    ;D 

  Not that I slept in today.    The early bird gets to read Louisev's next chapter right?    ;)

Over the weekend, I was thinking about you in Portland and Paul heading down to Provincetown as I was watching weatherhunk Jim Cantore take a beating in Gloucester. David, if you're reading this, I didn't realize it was bad in central Connecticut, too--I just kept hearing about the coast.

Leslie Dear,  what exactly was I doing in your dream about me and Ellery?   <big grin>

Jeff,  no property damage here at my house.    We did have wind gusts up to 60 mph though!    My American flag out front is pretty tattered now.   I need to get a new one.     I forgot to take it down before the storm.    It's been up since 9-11-01 so it is pretty faded anyways.   

What a nice day today!     I spent a good part of it tinkering with the new wagon.    Hopefully tomorrow will be nice enough to finish waxing it.

31 degrees today but clear and no wind at all, so it wasn't too bad. And with the time change it is not dark in the morning which makes things a lttle bit better.

Happy Halloween everyone! We don't have trick or treaters at our house (not that I am against them or anything, they just don't show up). Hannah is exporting herself to a friend's neighborhood to make sure she gets her full bag of halloween booty.

Since you live in an old house, do you have any ghosts, Leslie?

No ghosts in this old house. I think the family that lived here for most of its existence were a pretty happy bunch and didn't leave behind any sad souls who were forced to wander the earth for all eternity.

My grandmother lived in an old house in Marblehead, Mass (circa 1660) and it did have a ghost--a young woman. The story was that she was serving girl and got pregnant by the man of the family. When the baby was born, the wife took the baby and sent the girl back to her home in Salem. The ghost was the young woman, holding out her arms (as if reaching for the baby). She appeared the first time when my sister was born...no, my sister wasn't born in the house, she was born in a hospital in NY, but the ghost appeared at that time up in Massachusetts. She also appeared several times during the summer when we were there--my mother saw her, but I never did (I was only 6 at the time). My grandmother sold the house not all that long afterwards so I have no idea if the ghost is still there or not.

Hiya Leslie & All!

     It must have rained here last night as it is pretty wet outside.  The sun is out now though.     I was out raking wet leaves earlier.   Yuck.    Twice as heavy too!

    I love the fall colours, but hate the price we pay in all this raking of the leaves!

What an interesting story, thank you! BTW, Louise was telling us last nite in the Halloween chat about how ghosts could be dissuaded from wandering around by putting sweets on their graves. Thus the association of Halloween with sweets. The sweets did not dissuade my son from wandering through the neighborhood, in fact they had the opposite effect!!

Rainy and dreary here, too.

The indoor shower is IN but I took an outdoor shower. Old habits die hard...actually, with the time change, it is not pitch black out there at 6:15 am anymore, so I am inclined to still commune with nature, for as long as I can.

It is 26 degrees this morning with frost on the ground. I looked at the outdoor shower, thought of the gelatinous shampoo, and moved inside to christen the new indoor shower. It is fine. I felt like I was in the old shower except it is all clean and brand spanking new!

Chilly here this morning, and lots of frost on the ground. Looks like the outdoor shower may be closed for the season.

Now the debate is, do we re-fill the hot tub and set it up for the fall/winter season. We closed it up for the summer. Thoughts, anyone?

David - you actually think SOME people are not getting the joke of our nasty (on Jess's part, of course) exchanges? People love funny! If you get any complaints about how we're always attacking one other (on Jess's part, of course) let me know, OK?  ;D I for one always get a hoot from Jess's reactions.

BTW, Jess, You may "be moldering in the grave" by the time I get to 10 000, but the rest of us will still be in our 50's. (besides, I'll just change my name - already did it without assistance  :P)

Morning all,

Chilly morning, 27 degrees. Frost on the grass.

Last night at dinner, my darling husband announced that he is not happy with the new indoor shower and plans to take it out and reinstall. I just looked at him like he was losing all of his marbles.

Then my darling daughter agreed with him. Apparently the stuff on the wall is not satisfactory for either of them.

I'll keep everyone posted. This time I may really be moving to the Holiday Inn!

If I don't have the quotation exactly correct, I'm at least close. I was multitasking last evening, as usual, on line while I had the director's cut of 1776 on TCM.

Yes, there is a director's cut of 1776. According to Robert Osborne, an entire production number had been cut because President Richard Milhouse Nixon didn't like it--presumably because it made the conservatives in the Continental Congress (the delegates against Independence)--and by implication the modern-day Republican Party--look bad. The number has now been restored. Yup, hard to believe, when that movie was first released, Nixon was still in the White House and the nation was still in 'Nam.  :-\

Thank you kindly, Jeff, for the congrats. About Philadelphia, my kids' school put on a performance of The Philadelphia Story recently and, in order to get people to come, they had to send out an email explaining that The Philadelphia Story was not related to the Tom Hanks' movie Philadelphia. I am living in neanderthal land! So, my foremost priority today is not only getting to the polls to vote for the domestic partnership bill but also to get my like-minded friends to go vote as well. I already encountered someone with the lame excuse "I'd like to vote but I don't know where to go" and it isn't even 9 a.m. yet!!!!!!!!!!

I guess that's what you'd call what I had installed when I had my bathroom redone last year. I got better things to do with my time than clean tile. ...

Tell you what, why not tell him, by all means, put in the fanciest tile he wants--as long as he cleans it!  ;D

Leslie

Today is one of my days off, so I had plenty of time to go vote.   I voted at 11:00 am with all the old people and people with disabilities.   Then it dawned on me that the general population under 65 yrs old are all working at this time of day!   

I was not excited about voting.   The main candidates have been running smear campaignes against eachother on TV.  Plus they leave these long annoying recorded messages on my answering machine.   Don't get me started on the wasteful mailings they send out!   OMG!   I could fill a trash barrel with all the mailings I've rec'd so far.

Then yesterday a radio DJ gave me hope.   He had the same complaints I did.  But then he said that he was excited about voting because he had a new idea!     He said that we should all vote for the people on the ballot that we don't know!      We should vote for the people who haven't annoyed us!!


    We already know that the people up for re-election are bums who lie cheat and steal.    So let's just keep voting in new people everytime.   First of all, they may do a better job.  Secondly,   if they all knew they will not get re-elected then they can't get rich and fat on corporate donations.     You know they will always vote themselves raises.  They will never vote to eliminate donations from big business. 

 So until we take away the reason they want to be in power , ie: Greed, then we will always be stuck with these turkeys.       Elections are in November for a reason.  It is near Thanksgiving!   And the Turkeys get the axe this month!

So go vote for the unknown candidate!     They can't be any worse than the guy/gal in there now!  And they might just be better!

My pleasure, ma'am!  :D

The Philadelphia Story: My POV is that there are two essential Katharine Hepburn movies, and two quintessential Katharine Hepburn roles. One is Tracy Lord in The Philadelphia Story and the other is Rose Sayre in The African Queen. No disrespect intended to the films she made with Spencer Tracy (I happen to really enjoy Desk Set), but if I could only ever see two Katharine Hepburn movies, they would be The Philadelphia Story and The African Queen.

From The Philadephia Story:

C.K. Dexter Haven (Cary Grant): Liz, can you use a typewriter?

Liz Embry (Ruth Hussey): No, thanks, I've got one at home.

Jeff, I love Desk Set.  Someone who could witty repartee me like that, the way Hepburn and Tracy do in that movie, would have me at Hello (except they'd have to say the witty things first, and THEN say hello). :)

One of my sister's quirks is she loves to walk around the house yelling, drunk-Jimmy-Stewart-style, "C.K. DEXTER HAAA-VEN!!!  OH, C.K. DEXTER HAAAAA-VENNNN!!!!"  She seems to do it several times a year, and seems to enjoy herself hugely every time.

Rainy and dreary here too Leslie.   I was looking forward to staying inside in front of the fireplace and relaxing today, but I got an email from work last night telling me to come in all day today for overtime!       Oh well.  Better to work on these rainy days and have the sunny ones off!

Rub it in, Mark, rub it in.  ;)  ;D

Raining like an SOB down here this morning.

And can somebody please explain to me why the buses are always crowded--and late--when it rains? The crowds--where are these people on sunny days? Do they, maybe, not exist except when it rains? Are they like those little critters (I forget what they called them) that you used to be able to buy off the back of bubble gum wrappers that "come to life" when you put them in water?  >:(

Hi Jeff
If it will make you feel any better the beach itself was socked in with low think clouds today, Santa Ana's are over. Still very nice inland. But it was great at the beach the last two days, very warn sunny and clear and lots of nice scenery.

I take it by "scenery" you were not referring to your DeSoto--which, by the way, is way cool.  ;D

Another dreary day. My daughter Hannah gets her wisdom teeth out today, so I get to play nurse for the weekend. Poor kid! I remember having mine out (2 days before Christmas, nice parents, huh?) and I was more miserable than any kid on this earth could be. Let's hope Hannah fares better. Send healing energy, everyone.

The rain is over finally.    It is expected to be around 67*F today.   Of course I'll be inside with the cranky Airline passengers however!    The shift manager last night ask me (and many others) to come in early as it is going to be a very busy travel day I guess.   Ugh.      Just what i need with a stiff neck from not sleeping right.   

Leslie,    I had all of my impacted wisdom teeth out at once.    not a fun experience at all.   I recall the first 24 hours after the operation was the worst.   But it shall pass.     I'm sure you'll do excellent in comforting her.  :)

I had all four of mine, also impacted, out at once, also. But it was 1977, I was basically still a kid, I spent two nights in the hospital (night before and night after the procedure), I had good pain drugs--and the worst part was the idiot nurse waking me up--to give me a sleeping pill!

Edit: BTW no offense intended to nurses in general, only a slap at a fool who would wake up a sleeping person to give him a pill to help him sleep.

I'ts never anything to be looked forward to. Even back in the ancient times of 1977, I realized I was fortunate. I heard some real horror stories from people who had the procedure done in a dental surgeon's office rather than in hospital. My mother insisted on hospitalization because of the general anaesthesia. I wish you all good luck.

Friday morning, and the weather report is that it may be warm enough to put the convertible top down today. Whoo-wee! Unfortunately, poor Hannah is probably not going to be in the mood to take a spin. She did sleep all night and only woke up at 5:30 am for a pain pill and a new ice pack. I am a little surprised (and pleased) she did so well. Keep sending healing energy, everyone! Thanks...

And with that...31 degrees this morning, and frosty. Yesterday it was warm enough to have the top down on the convertible. Wowza! Today is supposed to get up to 50. Blue skies, though. Looks like a nice day.

Sure enough wasn't. I don't have any a the details, but was left with the impression that such was the case, here in Toronto. Apparently there are enough Americans in & around the city to warrent (a) polling station(s).

On the other hand, it's possible that either I misunderstood, or that the radio announcer got it wrong ....

Good morning, all.

Warm here in Maine, but sort of rainy. Once again, the outdoor shower is open as the new indoor shower is being renovated (the shower is one week old and needs to be renovated. Go figure!).

Hannah has hit the "I'm sick of feeling shitty" phase of her wisdom teeth recuperation. Poor kid. The swelling has gone down but she still is very uncomfortable. And she is sick of eating yogurt, pudding, and ice cream and desperately wants a piece of pepperoni pizza.

For those who are reading, I hope to have new chapter of my story up later today. Links will be posted on the fanfic board.

Cheers!

Monday morning...where's David's list? Oh, isn't this his day off? Maybe he is sleeping in.

Dreary here, but warm. Hannah is going to give school a try. We'll see how she does.

The weather we are having here in Maine, you'd have to be nuts to try to rake leaves. It is POURING!

Is it my imagination or are y'all in the East having an unusually wet season??

A reflection upon driving in to work today...well, the elections are over, and it's time for me to "get over" my BBM obsession and rejoin everyday life. So, I switched on NPR. That lasted about 2 minutes!! I ran screaming (figuratively) back to Brokeback Mountain. There ain't no reins on this one!!

I could be wrong, but it doesn't seem to me that we are having an unusually wet fall. It does, however, seem to me that we are having a "late" fall--that is, until the rain moved in on Sunday, having weather in early November that my memory associates with being more typical of early October.

Two weeks ago when we had an "unseasonably warm" Halloween, the local talking weather heads remarked that for the past few years, down here in southeastern Pennsylvania, we seem to have developed a pattern of a warm spell around the beginning of November.

A few years ago, when Halloween was on a Friday and November 1 was a Saturday, my medieval reenactment group had an event at Fort Mifflin on the Saturday. We all expected cold--or at least cool--weather (hey, it was November 1, right?) and dressed accordingly in warm garb. What happened? It was so warm, with temperatures in the 70s, that we damn near asphyxiated from the heat!  ;D

Tuesday morning, another rainy day, but warm -- 50 degrees. Nothing much to say. I was stunned yesterday when I realized that Thanksgiving is next week! For some reason, I thought it was two weeks away. Or maybe three. And they have all this Christmas stuff in the grocery store. Sigh...the holidays are not my favorite time of year.

Good Morning Leslie & All.

   Same here.  Gloomy, wet and drizzly.   I did manage to rake all the leaves yesterday before it started raining harder.    But I pooped out trying to drag the wet leaves in a tarp out to the curb!   LOL.   I'll finish today if the wind and rain stay away.     

   Looks like another good day to stay inside, drink some tea and surf BetterMost and eBay!   

PS:   I have to work Thanksgiving day from 1:30 pm until 6:30 pm.    :(     The Airport is usually very quiet at that time, but open nonetheless.   It is the days before and after that are chaos there!     I get to work 8 hour days then!

Hunh? If I look at post #1469 (Clarissa's), I see a great big ol' sheriff's badge. If I look at post #1473 (Sheriff Roland's quote), all I see is the little box with the x. (It's a nice little box with a nice little x, but that's all it is.)

No I don't see the sheriff's Star - I wonder why ...

Another mild day with blue skies. Maybe the rain will hold off today? That would be a nice change.

Lee, it is official. The front page of the paper says "Unusually wet fall raises flood risk." So all this rain we have been having is not normal. Now we know.

Brace yourself, more bad, rainy weather coming--the storm system that hit the South yesterday.

It's clouded over in Philadelphia, and we are supposed to have heavy rain later this afternoon, maybe even severe thunderstorms. And they still haven't figured out the origin of the leak in my dining room ceiling.  :-\  >:(

Tell you what, with all the bad weather around yesterday in Boston (Logan) and Philly,  work was a zoo with cancelled and delayed flights.  Maybe I'll get to work at a slow baggage drop off point today.

I remember Eastern Airlines. A good friend of my parents was an Eastern Airlines pilot.

The Beatles flew to New York in February 1963 on Pan Am. Remember the scene of them at Kennedy Airport (was it renamed by then? or was t still Idelwild?) standing at the top of the stairs and waving to the crowd.

I flew TWA back and forth to Italy in the summer of 1971. My memory of those trips: GOOD FOOD.

Allegheny, the famous Agony Airlines. Allegheny has morphed over the years and now is USAirways. I just got an email yesterday that they are looking to merge with Delta.

How about People's Express? Remember that one David?

Hell, I remember Braniff!

And a helluva storm it was went through here late yesterday afternoon/early evening. I was soaked through to the knees, shoes and all, just walking to the subway, so instead of going to the gym, I went directly home.

The good news is, with the wind blowing hard from the south, there was no leakage through my dining room ceiling. The bad news is, we now have no clue where the water came from when it leaked Wednesday of last week and again on Sunday. (A roofer claims it wasn't the roof.)

AND, I thought it was supposed to get cold--or at least cool--after the storm. THEY LIED AGAIN!

Morning all, sunny today, about 41 degrees. Big crafts fair at my daughter's school today so I'll be busy with that. My business is sponsoring a....bathroom! How exciting is that? LOL

David....Oceanic...no memory. Maybe they were flying to Antarctica?

Correct Jeff!   Also,  I was watching the movie "Executive Decision" with Kurt Russel and the story line was set on a 747 jumbojet from...Oceanic Airlines!

I'll have to see what name was on the planes in those "Airport" movies.   Ya know, the ones with George Kennedy.

Ugh! 

    I quickly noticed once I got to work that I had a sore throat.   Which quickly added chills later.       Just what I need.  A cold right at the busiest time of year at the Airport!    :(

I am late checking in because we had some technical difficulties here in Bettermost land. But things seem to be back on track...

Blah day here in Maine, but not raining and not too cold. Just ordinary.

No snow but my son tells me they have been having snow for two weeks in Oneonta, NY, where he is in college! And he gets home tonight for the Thanksgiving break. Hooray!

You might check the "Airplane" movies, too. Ya know, the ones with Leslie Nielsen.  ;D

I've never seen "Executive Decision." Maybe "Oceanic Airlines" is one of those TV and movie conventions, like, all phone numbers begin with "555."

Hope you feel better, David. A sore throat and chills (chills = fever?) sounds like flu to me.
Title: Re: The 1000+ Posts Club
Post by: David on November 19, 2006, 08:30:08 pm
Hi Jeff,  & all !

    Hmm,  the more I think of it,  The name "Transcontinental Airlines" comes to mind as the one from Airport 1975.     But I could be wrong.

    I'm feeling a little better today.   I think the fever broke last night.    Throat feels alittle better too.   Had a pounding headache though.  Thank goodness for DayQuil liqui-caplets.  They saved the day so I could go to work.

   Today was my Friday, so now I have two days to rest.    Yeah right.  I need to rake more leaves!    LOL.

**PS:    At work they insist we get a Flu shot this time of year.    (I did)   So many people come thru the Airport hacking and coughing.    We wear rubber gloves most of the time, but still you never get enough time to run and wash your hands as often as you like.    They do give us 70% isopropyl alcohol to rinse our hands off if we want.     The trouble with the gloves is that your hands sweat something fierce in them.   After 30 minutes your hands are all prune wrinkly.     But it sure beats touching hundreds of pairs of stinky shoes all day with your bare hands.

Thank U David, it's so nice to see my name in violet!! Thank U also latjoreme, for riffing and sparring with me, I couldn't be where I am today w/o U! About the mind-boggling posts, I think I know what U mean. LauraGigs and I were talking last night about some of the doofus posts I've made recently during the sprint to 3,000, such as talking about how great Mark Hamill was in Amadeus. But she was nice enough to compliment me on my cameo appearance as the Clear Slick in The Performance Thread, which can be seen, she said modestly at http://bettermost.net/forum/index.php?topic=2739.msg112868#msg112868 (http://bettermost.net/forum/index.php?topic=2739.msg112868#msg112868).
