Some people have never stood in front of a 90 mile an hour fast ball coming at you from 90 feet away.

If one of those guys decides to hit you, you are going to be hit. Fast has nothing to do with it. D

I was always nice to opposing pitchers.

When they came up to bat I'd be all "Nice day today , I hope your family is doing well. "

Heck, if you guys were throwing a solid little ball 90 miles an hour 2 feet from my head on a regular basis, I'd be nice to all of you too.
A cricket pitch is one chain from stumps to stumps, so the bowler is allowed to release the ball from the bowling crease, about 4ft closer to the batsman, who in turn is standing on the batting crease, the same line at the other end of the pitch. That is, the batsman and bowler are separated by about 20 yards at the time the ball is bowled, at 100mph (perhaps).

Mrs Bob took even more drastic measures.
Is the "5.00" price tag on top of the trap, for the trap or the contents? $5/lb for fresh Brunswick Stew ingredients seems kind of steep...

Garage sale sticker, I leave 'em on so I can remember what I paid for stuff.
This fellow was incarcerated for flower pot digging, probably for hidden acorns.
Released unharmed, but I thought about harming him when I saw the gnaw marks on the deck rail.

Sorry, learning that Brunswick stew should be made with squirrel, not yard bird, seemed like useful learning to me.

Hmmmmmm - that's probably because you cook a lot more than I do. May have to get a ruling on this one...

Good to see that the chatter here is progressing at the usual vigorous rate and that the fate of both the hociR and Tokyo are secure.

I have been out of commission for the last week or so recuperating from surgical insertion of replacement knee parts. Before consenting to the surgery, I was assured that none of the hociR's wares would be utilized and that the "mark" of the hociR will not appear on the back of my thigh or elsewhere. So far - so good.

Best wishes for a speedy recovery. I have researched some and still have no idea who or what this hoc thingy is all about? Even when someone tried to explain it, I didn't "get it". But just the same, I hope you got some good parts and not anything to do with this hoc fellow?

Regards!

Gee, looky there! You left here a Pentaxian and came back a Site Supporter! I bet Otis sent you a get well gift? He does stuff like that ...sometimes.

As I understand it, cartilage, likes shots in the film canister, gets used up.
