  1. This is Missy, my highly aggressive and totally alert Malti-Poo (Maltese-Poodle). As you can see, she is presently taking a breather from her usual very alert posture. It is very tiring to be tasked with protecting the family, so she tries to rest whenever possible! We walk every morning about 7 - 7.30 for about 4 blocks, and then return home for a well-deserved rest. Life is good!
  2. No worries...............just waiting for the next Earthquake!
  3. Oh, God, why am I not surprised that Rotater showed up? He is the most depressing, narrow-minded, useless piece of s****t that I've ever had the misfortune to read on this Forum! Doesn't matter whether it's a Hurricane, or a Snowstorm, or a Rainstorm, or a shift in the Earths Rotation, or ANYTHING, lets be sure to blame the President and the Republicans, while praising the screwed up policies of Obumma and the self-serving Democrats! ROTATIGA, THESE WEATHER ANOMALIES HAVE BEEN OCCURING SINCE TIME IMMEMORIAL, AND TO BLAME EVERYTHING ON GLOBAL WARMING IS SIMPLY A KNEE-JERK REACTION BROUGHT ABOUT BY BEING A TOOL OF THE LEFT WING IDIOTS YOU SUPPORT! For once, just try thinking for yourself, you cretin! Have a nice day.
  4. Love the Statler Bros!
  5. Oh, Gawd, not Boris!
  6. Technically? TECHNICALLY? How about physically? I feel the cold fingers of Death scratching the back of my neck every time I try to recreate some earlier easy task such as crawling under the car to check something, or responding to my wifes request to dig a couple of holes for some scrawny plants she wants to embed! It's weird, but I really feel like I'm on the downward slope to oblivion. Five or ten years ago I never gave it a thought, but now, that lite at the end of the tunnel seems to be a hell of a lot closer! Sorry, all, didn't mean to sound dismal, just reflecting about stuff. Meanwhile, back at the Ready Room............................................................................!
  7. "An interest in Iowa weather reports" Aha, the plot thickens...............I'll bet that's NSA double talk for something OG isn't allowed to talk about...........fiendishly clever, these spook types. Could it possibly involve Donnie and --------------ANOTHER? (Music sting plays, along with a rapidly receding scream) Stay tuned.........................!
  8. WE'RE ALL GONNA DIE!!!!!!
  9. Kinda eerie here this AM. Around 9am everything got very quiet, no animal or bird sounds, and it progressively became gloomier and gloomier, until it seemed as though everything was holding its breath.........................around 10am the sky reappeared in its usual bright blue, the birds started chattering, and the world returned to normal, or what passes for it in California. I can imagine how it must have felt hundreds of years ago, before science enlightened us as to the cause. I still maintain that the Earth is flat, don't care what they say!
  10. It appears that I have caused some unnecessary worry in the Ready Room, with rumors of both my wifes demise and my own succumbing to Altzheimers Disease. Although it is most gratifying to know that there are several members of the Squadron who expressed their concern that these occurrences may be true, I'm here to most emphatically deny the truth of these very personal and heartfelt problems! In other words, I'M STILL BLOODY WELL HANGING AROUND, AND MY DEAR WIFE OF 54YRS IS MOST DEFINITELY ALIVE, AS OF 1600HRS TODAY! SO THERE! AND, NO, I DON'T HAVE ALTZHEIMERS AS FAR AS I KNOW, ALTHOUGH SHE MAY HAVE HER OWN SAY ON THAT. Thank you for asking.
  11. Thanks, guy, and the same from her, even more heartfelt!!
  12. Didn't like his voice and antics much, but his Charity work, beyond great! RIP, Mr Lewis, keep those angels in stitches!
  13. No, Donnie, oh Lord no! And I don't have Altzheimers either, I'm delighted to say! No, this was just to give more reality to the story, which sprang from who-knows-where after reading Old Guys excellent tale. I always enjoy his stuff, and like to try and emulate him where possible. Oh, and I'm only 86 in November, not pushing 90 by the way! Appreciate your concern for my welfare, ol' bean!
  14. "Who the hell....................? Whizkid shakes off the dust from his worn old Mk II Flight Coveralls and sits up , dislodging a rats-nest of torn MRE wrappers and empty Schlitz bottles, wheezing a couple of seldom used imprecations, as his rheumy old eyes tried to see through the fog of the dust he'd disturbed with his movement. " Damn, was that someone from the old bunch talking, or was I dreaming of the old days in my nap?" "Be just like those idiots to get together and not include me" "What the hell, just because I'm pushing ninety doesn't mean I can't show those kids a few tricks they haven't even thought of, right?" Mumbling more choice words, Whizzer tries to push the handle down on the recliner he's slouched in, but not succeeding, as the upper- body strength he used to have has flown away some time ago, leaving him a shadow of his former Mr. Universe body, a fact that he vehemently denied to anyone that was curious enough to ask. "Shit!" he barked, "Someone come and give me a hand, will ya?" Total silence greeted his shout, except for a couple of rats that scurried away to a corner of the Ready Room, red eyes glittering in the lite from a Propane Lantern that was his only source of illumination these days, having been excluded from the local Power Grid for bouncing checks over the last three months. "Damn, this old age is really the shits, ya know? The young-uns don't want to know you any more, and your buddies all head for the hills if you try and include yourself in their activities or ask for their help. Ha, just wait till they get there, then see who finishes up laughing!" Whizzer tries one more time to push down the handle, but only succeeds in pushing himself lower in the chair. "Ah, damn, I'll just wait 'till the old lady comes back with the beer, then she can give me a hand" Sadly, Whizzer had forgotten another fact of life. His wife of 50yrs had passed away four months ago, but as Altzheimers progressed this fact was forgotten, along with so much more.
  15. Many Happy Returns to Us! Thank God we got rid of those pesky Brits...........now we can ruin the country at our own pace! Seriously, have a great 4th, guys and gals, down one for me, eh?
