    First day of Driver Ed back in ‘52 was the morning of a 10-inch snowfall, and up first, my first objective was to turn right at Second Street. (sliiiiide) and after that, it was flying by one’s seat of one’s pants. (girls included) .. 60-odd years later, when we convene, we often laff about ‘our adventures’ but b’jeezus, we’re alive and well because of things we learned of a practical use instead of the crap they pass for ‘education’ in today’s “schooling”…

    I’ve done my Genealogy, and find that I’m a GMO, too.. NOW what do I do to stop/start the madness?? Two of my three kids are Democrats and the other has generated homosexuals and although I love ‘em all, things were going well for us back in the early 1900’s… I’m at a total loss for an answer, and Mendel’s Pea-Pickin’ wun’t no help, neither.. argh.

    I control my toast by setting it back to where it belongs after the cleaning lady swipes by the lever and fixes it so I get “burnt offerings” the next day. I MUST remember to beat her.

    I have a KFC barrel saved for my ashes. What’s good enough for coming into the world, is good enough for the exit. Less of a mess, too.. Pore ol’ Mrs. Hurd, my midwife would agree, too !

    “in the old movies I love, people my age are stooped, have white hair in buns, use canes, creak when they speak, retire gently to rockers on the porch, and doze by the fireside in the evenings.”
    You’n me both… I look up them b/w folks and think ‘good lord, those ancient people were only 62? 54? 63? and had pre- and teen-age kids fer goshsakes !! I never COULD figger out the mind-set of Hollywood Producers of the 1930’s..

    I had the distinct dishonor of crossing paths with her just ONCE in my musical past and the encounter wasn’t pleasant…..for EVERYbody.

    I remember the old Ole Olsen comedy line; (if you’re under 60 years old, this will be new to you, btw) “Yah, ve yust put us a new garbage disposal under da sink…da ol’ pig died!”

    I thought Ann Landers settled this problem years ago, although all bets are off if there’s a cat in the house !
