    Mornin’ Leaky, Mornin’ all. Did Burl say ‘brat’ as in ‘spoiled brat’ or did he pronounce it ‘brot’? Brat meals? As in KIDS? Huh? Am I just being thick this morning?

    @purple sky

    I’m not up on fast foods, but isn’t that a kids meal?
    They probably just wanted the free toys.

    Burl could eat three all by himself.

    Sometimes I would SO like to give Burl a jolly good thumping! What an @$$!

    GM!


    They’re okay by me. Their crimes are slight and their impositions are light. A tidy yard and picked up home. Joy and Burl seem to have a solid marriage and an easy friendship. They’re social life is stable and no more dysfunctional and/or hilarious than is yours and mine. Corporate is apparently satisfied with Burl’s stewardship of the Crustwood U-Store-It. He is civic minded and participates.


    Who doesn’t get itchy if there isn’t a Jerry panel for a few days? Maybe that’s less itchy, I’m not sure. Verla is 100% demure charm. What is not to like? Va Va Verl’!


    And then there’s Ma. Any woman in this forum would give up a Bossa Nova with Bobby Burgess to sit at the kitchen table with her and rag on son-out-law Burl. Any man here would be glad to drive her to the shuttle bus stop so she could get the paint she needs for her gutters.


    If Ma were a younger woman in Thailand this is what she’d look like.


    The Pennys are easy to laugh at but hard to hate.


    As for me and my house: We can stand these people!

    I’m with Leaky. Sounds like a kid’s meal. Altho in IL they may have fast food joints that have brats. Lotsa salt and fat, yum! They probably are after the toys, and Verl is gathering the ingredients for her famous tomato soup.

    And if she knew how to boil water (for noodles) she’d also have sauce for spaghetti.

    If these people don’t beat all. I can’t believe they would buy kiddie meals for the free toys and not the smaller size portions. Why anyone would want to be friends with them must be desperate. lol

    Maybe the meals come in those handy dandy reusable Styrofoam containers. You know like the cups they recycle every year. After all it is the picnic day. HAPPY 4th all

    @gmforde

    Hey, the Burgermeister Toys are “collectibles” and the one with “Inga in Leiderhosen” is really “attractive”. ( Or so Leaky told me!)
    .
    Happy 4th to all……enjoy and be safe!

    What a spin doctor you are.


    They are slothful, crude, crass, lackadaisical , boorish and have all the finesse of a bull in a china shop. You can have them.


    p.s. If I were in trouble, I would want you to defend me.
