Correct seems a bit pretentious. "Wrong is right" seems more befitting a discourse on plain speaking.

Pretentious is condescending, you snob. Correct is right, and right is not quite correct when it comes to wrong.
I was going to chime in with "Wright is Wrong!" and "Set Love Free!", but it only makes sense if you've flown Southwest Airlines in the past five years, and besides, the Wright Amendment was finally repealed.

(If you Google "Wright is Wrong", you will either get a bunch of Texas politics or a theological debate, either of which seems esoteric enough to tie in well with the TP discussion, but not allowed here.)

Wife's grandma had a double wide built in 85. Actually really nice and well made... That is until her son got it and wrecked it! The one we deal with now, was built in 95 and is not so well made. Had to replace plumbing, roof, a/c, some electrical and a door!
Other than the power debacle, is it a comfortable place to live?

It's not too bad. It's too small for us, which is really why I will be looking to buy a site-built house this year. After that, I'll probably do a small amount of work on it so that one of the kids can make a bachelor pad out of it during college.
We lived in a FEMA single-wide for about a year after a tornado got our house in '84. It was... cozy. Three teenagers would definitely be cramped.

We talked about Velveeta and Lewdfish....which is why we are still doing toilet talk.

One of the joys of reading this thread such erudition

I always read this thread 'backwards' i.e. starting at last post, it's fascinating to find out what set 'topics' going only after reading numerous posts
My grandfather also had a Vanguard Standard ute, which he had used both for his work and as his private car, loaded with grandma and the stuff when I was young before he got the Vanguard 4. The ute used the same 4 cylinder engine. The body styling of the 4 was typical sedan. The ute and the 6 shared a similar rounded bonnet that seemed to hark back to the 30s styling. The 6 styling was consistent with that for the whole, rounded, bodywork.

Medium sized, no yard and LOTS of parking since you have teenagers!! Our house looks like a used car lot most of the time!


By George, I think he's got it!!
Did you mean Boy George, with a typo?

Has been working on and off for weeks. Sometimes no notification at all, sometimes it comes long after I have read and responded to the thread. And sometimes it comes right away.

If that results in me appearing an arrogant arse for ignoring people who quote me, well, there's no hiding the truth, is there

Working again. Go figure.

It sort of matters because I have some lenses to put up for sale.

One NY's resolution done, I had to ketchup on 16 pages of posts here.
Read backwards from the last page, just like I do magazines.

my only comments:
I had that cold/cough crap right after Thanksgiving, and so did 5 others at our family get together, we're still looking for the carrier
TP on top, of course.
Dog cheese?
Jar cheese?
Lewdfish?

that's all I have to say, since that's all I can remember about the 16 pages of posts.

M28/2 & K135/2.5. Shower, haircut, photographs, then listing.

Of course I have to find the Sell button. All I know is the Buy button.

EDIT: It's just too good on an MX.

I had hair in my youth. Really. My wife has pictures. I got pulled over once too often, so I cut it off and never looked back.

Marlboros.

I have no WR lenses.
