  1. Sorry for the loss of your puppy. She will be missed. To me, that’s just about the best thing anybody can say when somebody passes.
  2. That sounds about right. We had a big family reunion in the Adirondacks. We rented a group of condos in the same area for a week in late July and people came from all over the country. My niece from Florida was not a happy camper because it was so cold the whole time. I remember that whole summer being cold.
  3. Nobody knows where my Johnny has gone But Judy left the same time Why was he holding her hand When he's supposed to be mine It's my party, and I'll cry if I want to Cry if I want to, cry if I want to You would cry too if it happened to you Playin' my records, keep dancin' all night But leave me alone for a while Till Johnny's dancin' with me I've got no reason to smile It's my party, and I'll cry if I want to Cry if I want to, cry if I want to You would cry too if it happened to you Judy and Johnny just walked through the door Like a queen with her king Oh what a birthday surprise Judy's wearin' his ring It's my party, and I'll cry if I want to Cry if I want to, cry if I want to You would cry too if it happened to you
  4. I will make small talk with neighbors while walking the dog, doing yard work, etc. Mostly we talk about harmless things like the weather, growing plants, pruning trees, dogs, etc. We have been neighbors for 20 or more years, and have only been inside each other’s houses once or twice.
  5. First there was a thread about nuts. Now there is a thread about melons. Coincidence? I think not. I am a fan of both nuts and melons. High in fiber, filling, good for snacking. My wife loves all types of bread, but bread isn’t very good for my nutrition or my digestion. Mix in some nuts and melons, and things go much better. My father would put salt on watermelon, cantaloupe, honeydew, etc. I think my favorite is cantaloupe. I think of it as more firm than watermelon, and sweeter than honeydew. However, variations from melon to melon can make a huge difference.
  6. Good timing for me! I’m in Scotland with my wife. Spending a few weeks touring around and looking at scenery, castles, ruins, distilleries, beautiful women with pale complexions and reddish-brown hair, eating fish and chips, wishing we golfed, etc. The temperature is in the 60’s and low 70’s. Perfect. Very little rain so far. Just finished the first week of three weeks.
  7. Eagle Bay is a great area! Do you live there year round? Not many people can say that. When our kids were young, we would rent a place for a week in the summer. We used to climb Rocky Mt. almost every year (best view for the least effort in The Adirondacks). Lately, with my bad knees and my wife’s fear of falling, we have been circling Moss Lake instead. My kids still talk about the donut shop, 25 years later. We love going to the Big Moose Inn for dinner.
  8. My father was a GE engineer and he worked at a place called Apollo Park in Daytona Beach, across the street from the speedway, race track, and dog track. I was 12 years old in July 1969. I was totally into it, as were many of my class mates whose fathers also worked at space related industries. The idea that it wasn’t real wasn’t even thought about. In school, they would have us all go out to the PE fields to watch rocket launches. That was a memorable time period.
  9. I’m also in the Utica area. A lot of Giants and Bills fans, a smaller number of Jets fans, and a mixture of a few fans of other random teams. In general, I think I see more shirts, hats, license plate frames, and stickers for the Bills than for any other teams. However, if the Jets or Giants start to win, then that could change. My father in law (in his eighties) is a Giants fan because they aren’t from that new fangled, upstart AFL.
  10. It’s not the concern of getting bit that keeps me away from PPP. It’s mostly because I enjoy the humor of many people on TBD/OTW, and I found out from a few visits to PPP that some people have some pretty wacko social/economic/political thoughts. The lack of knowledge about other people’s thoughts enables me to ignore that stuff and just enjoy the humor.
  11. Oh, it's so nice to be with you I love all the things ya say and do And it's so nice to hear you say You're gonna please me in every way Honey, I got the notion You're causin' commotion in my soul Baby, you and me have got somethin' that's real I know it's gonna last a lifetime ya better believe it, girl At night I call your name Darkness fills my room, I'm only dreamin' About the time I'm gonna be with you Oh, it's so nice to be with you I love all the things ya say and do And it's so nice to hear you say You're gonna please me in every way Honey, I got the notion You're causin' commotion in my soul When I'm feelin' down You're there to pick me up and help me to carry on Aww, little things mean a lot When you need a shoulder to cry on I'm there to ease the pain and chase away the rain Aww, darlin', I just gotta say
  12. I always liked the way Fred Jackson could flow through several defenders in slow motion. He would twist and turn and nobody could get a grip on him until he had gone about five yards. The Bills also had several defenders who were very good at showing up at the site of the tackle about two seconds too late to help out,
  13. Maybe if a chick was into kayaking or some other such sport then she would appreciate that Keen sandals are ugly, but they are useful. However, after looking at me she would realize that I’m ugly and I am not useful.
  14. I’m amazed at the number of people who I see out and about in flip flops. I think they are unsafe and gross, but people wear them out in public quite often in warm weather. My own son does sometimes. But I still think they are unsafe and gross. I am too cautious/paranoid myself. But I wear my Keen sandals whenever possible. They stay on more securely, they are comfortable for a lot of walking, and they have a rubber toe cover. They probably look dorky, but I don’t care.
