    Certainly hope Carl’s a bachelor, cause if he isn’t, Sheriff Monkeyblues will be making a domestic call at Carl’s place soon.

    Carl lives pretty much the way I do. I love the bachelor life.

    If Carl truly pwned that space he wouldn’t be wearing pants.

    Looks like me right now except I got a computer in my lap.
    And a beer.
    Missed the Tiki call tonight.
    I was looking towards the wemen and yak steaks.
    A MANS HOME IS HIS CASTLE
    Drives my wife nuts when I do that.
    Put on some pants.
    AWWWWW Your no fun. Join me. Dance the Dance of Life.
    She just goes into the other room shaking her head.
    I go, hey, thats her loss.
    But I do remember to get my own beer. She is libel to shake it before handing it to me.
    She has done that before.
    Laughs and laughs.
    Life is good.

    Did anyone notice the metal on his heels?
    I remember that as a kid.
    About 40 years ago.
    Metal taps.
    Gosh is he a dancing fool too?

    Carl need to rethink the " drinking from an upside down cup through a straw process".

    I, for one, am very happy that Carl has his pants on, for two reasons:


    1. I really didn’t want to see Carl in his skivvies.


    and,


    2. I think Jerry Van Amerongen did a spectacular job of drawing the pants! I always admire his artwork with all the quirky characters, but the lines in these pants are amazing…even mesmerizing! It’s hard to tear my eyes away! His (JVA’s) attention to detail is remarkable. Like Veteran mentioned regarding the metal “taps” on Carl’s heels, the almost-collapsing lampshade, or the strewn-about chips/cheese curls on the couch…it all underscores just who Carl is. Very well done!



    (and given JAV’s attention to all of the smallest of details…… I REALLY didn’t want to see Carl in his skivvies!

    Don’t ever invite Carl to a party. He likes to do this thing with A coat hanger, a can of cheese whiz and a ceiling fan. Whoa! I’m off to the Tiki!

    Hi, Bev …. I’ve been having various technical issues off and on the last couple of weeks (still can’t use my printer. That’s next on the agenda. But, I have to “work” up to getting ready for another hour-or-more tech support call. LOL Tech support call to MSN on Thursday was 3+ hours!! Arrgghhh! Oops, sorry…still in pirate-talk mode!)
    A n y w a y …………I’m sending you a BOLO (Be On The Look Out) for today. Is that cryptic or what? I’ve been hanging out with BatPug too much, I think!!


    BTW: My niece’s due date is today. Still no signs from Lorenzo that today might be the day, and really, how often are the doctors that accurate……? lol Will keep you posted!

    Those taps were great walking down halls in Jr. High all "click, click, click, then stop and just swing the heel back and forth quickly. Drove the teachers nuts. Was worse on the janitor. All those scratches and scrapes on the linoleum. Can still hear him grumbling. Damn Kids.
    To stelbel
    Don’t worry about Lorenzo. When ready. He will as put by Alex the Lion “Emerge”
    Just be at the hospital or natal clinic. I in my career had to help two into the world on the side of the road.
    No choice.
    Momma said in a booming voice “I am going to have this baby NOW!”
    No choice. As put by Bill Cosby I had to become Johnny Bench and catch it.
    Slippery little buggars.
    Both no problems.
    I have a Stork pin they use to hand out to us Troops that did that.

    @StelBel – you are something else! I wouldn’t want to see Carl in his skivvies either but didn’t notice his pants until you wrote about them. Yes, it does take some talent to get get the lines meshed just right. But, please, take your eyes off Carl’s pants – kinda creepy.

    BTW – I will take over a couch like this with my crafts stuff.

    Good Day all…. I too like to relax but Carl takes the cake…. and I didn’t get a slice!

    More like Carl tries to own as much space as he can get himself and his stuff into.
    And what Alphaanddelta said.

    Veteran, if by dancing fool, you meant tap dancer, probably not. Tap shoes have bigger metal plates at both toe and heel.
