I often catch myself muttering "there's never enough (fill in the blank), never enough...."

And even more often:  "(fill in the blank) don't look right!"  It's a kind of shorthand to signal that a fellow Brokie is present.    :)

Well, this happened in SF this past weekend.

I landed in the airport, and went to the rental area to get my mini van.  The guy behind the counter starts talking to me about the conditions and stuff, and then says to me:

"Now, you have unlimited miles on this car, but that doesn't mean you can drive it to Mexico."

I started laughing, and he asked what was funny.  I told him it would be too long to explain.


Tell him when l come up to him and ask to play the record, l'm gonna say: ''Voulez-vous jouer ce disque?''
'Voulez-vous, will you kiss my dick?'
Will you play my record? One-track mind!

My friend is trying to lose weight, and so far she has lost 46 pounds. I said, "That's great!" She said, "Yeah, but it's taken me 18 months." I said, "Fast or slow, I just like the direction you're going!"

Well, today I went to a family wedding.  My 2nd cousin got married. 

On the tables there was a form to fill out, with questions or notes for you to leave the happy couple.  The last question was:

"Do you have any advice for us?"

This was my answer:

Always remember the happines of this day, and carry it through to all your days.  To quote my favorite movie, Brokeback Mountain,

"It could be like this, just like this, always."

Does anyone else have this happen to them? Old pick-up trucks are the most fascinating vehicles on the road!!

Awww Chuck!
That was a beautiful use of a Brokeism!
I love it.
You are such a tender heart! :)

If it does I don't know what they do, maybe go to Denver.  :laugh:

I've always thought so!  :D



So yesterday I was in a job interview, and the guy asked me to talk about my background. I went through and described all my jobs, and where I'd lived, why I'd done this or that, blah blah blah... and then said, "That's how come me end up here."


 ::)

Well, OK, I actually said, "That's how I wound up here," or something like that. But I thought it the other way!

Front-Ranger--I learned to drive in my granddad's old (1955 Chevy step side) truck with a stick shift in the steering column. This was in the 70's, so it was pretty old by then. Sometimes the stick got stuck and grandpa taught me to open the hood and unstick it!!  :)  Sometimes I got to drive it to school. I loved that old truck---wish I still had it.

Later on I had a pick up for a couple of years---I always picked up hitchhikers when I had that truck. They were glad to sit in the truck bed for a ride. (I don't pick up hitchers now with a car, tho.)

EdDelMar is so lucky to have that great pickup---the Brokeback truck. How cool!
