I wonder how the people at Chevrolet came up with the name Impala for that car. Have they ever seen an impala?? Chevy Hippo would have been more fitting...

Edit: I see now that I was wrong. It should obviously have been Chevy Blue Whale.

Speaking of bacon.

Cinnamon bacon is killer!

And to say that I cure and smoke my own bacon.
Well I guess you're OK then.

How did I miss this?
Yeah!

I got a teaser PM from one of my good friends in OZ with a link to a thread. Thing is, that link was DOA. A message or two back and forth and I had an idea where to go to find my Crew from the Best Damn Thread Ever. Thing is, the threads kept vanishing.

Odd how that happens.

Anyway, I was kinda feeling depressed after things changed. I mean, it became a daily thing to do, like that morning cup of coffee and the morning paper.

Along with some BACON.

Along side a CHEESE omelet.

With toast smeared lightly with VEGEMITE.

Yep.

I was really feeling lost and lonely.

That bridge I cross every day on the way to The World's Largest Building started to look like a good place to, well, um, you know how it is when your whole world is suddenly gone, right?

But not only did I miss out on Norm's Orphanage, but I also missed out on the m0dUlAt0r's resurrection of the Coolest Thread Ever too.

I just found a picture I wanted to post and... the thread is locked.....

I mean really, what else can you do with an image like this...



Who else would appreciate it ?
Norm, you are my hEr0.

And now I have about 460 posts to read so I am current with The World again.

OK. So that's not 100% correct, but I think you understand the "spirit'" involved.

That was good for a morning cry! Had a real "Where the Red Fern Grows" moment! (snif)

So that's why my coffee tasted salty this morning.
Our girl Brooke will be 7 in July, seems she was a pup just yesterday.
Sorry cat lovers, she does not like cats and is constantly on the lookout for them when I'm out at the grill.

My first car was a '62 Impala Wagon.
Mine was a 1963 Impala 2 door hardtop, bought in 1965 for a tad more than my K-5 cost.
It looked like this:

Rupert, last time I saw that squirrel he was looking down at a cat!!!!!!
Just like Otis said...I was lying! Otis is never wrong! ...except at predicting the weather. Even a genius like Otis can't predict weather!
