Yeah, I was thinking back to when Mom would ask "do you want to go to the car?" No. I did not want to go to the car. Going to the car was not a fun experience. My friends have said it to their kids, although their version just means sitting and being bored. I guess it's effective, as neither of their kids have become axe murderers - yet.
Wow! The car would have been no punishment at all! I used to run and hide on the caravan roof until my dad was less mad.
As a kid (in the years before seatbelts) I remember more than one occasion of sleeping on the rear parcel shelf only to be rudely awaken with dad having performed a sudden stop and me flying off the parcel shelf and into the rear footwell after hitting the back of the front seat at speed. And I'm still here to tell the tale!

I won't buy a K-3 because this model is discontinued and, by the time Black Friday sales arrive they might be sold out.

Yeah, I suppose people relax now that we can see the line marking the end - of this lap! Of course, this is only the second lap of the race. A moderately long race is 25 laps... But we're here for the long run, right?


Lap?


Race?


Got my attention!

So... how's the weather?


Well, I see that out your way it hasn't been so great. And directly to the South the folks in the other Carolina are really having a rough go.

Yep, we got three months' worth of rain in a week. And, since most of the rivers in the western part of NC flow southeast, it just added to what SC was getting on their own - that last storm kind of stretched along the border and parked. Our worst fear was that Hurricane Joaquin would make landfall, adding wind to the mix. As wet as the ground is, that would mean millions of trees down on powerlines, roads, houses, etc.

Yep, the guys who say they "read it for the articles" are really going to have to put up or shut up. PB is right, tho' - the Internet has made it so easy to get nudie pix that there's just no money in it any more. Heck, the clickbait ads that my local news station slips in as "more you might like" frequently have raunchier pix than a Playboy cover.

I knew this would happen when Hefner's daughter took over.

I didn't until I Googled it this morning. I was vaguely aware that Hefner had passed things to his daughter, but didn't realize that she took over in 1982.

s'truth. When Norm said he knew it would happen when Hefner's daughter took over, I remembered thinking something along those lines, and that made me think - when WAS that? That led to Wikipedia, and the discovery that she ain't boss no mo.

All this kind of ties into some philosophizing I did this weekend as the result of sitting at a traffic light next to a car blasting a profanity-laced song and thinking that if the "forbidden" stuff is commonplace, it becomes boring and stops being "special" - and then what will we use to swear with?
