We plan on a little vacation when the TT gets out of the shop, .......


Wait.




You were on vacation when the TT got hurt before.


And after it gets repaired you're gonna go right out and do it again?




I don't get it.

I am going to work on my new August theme....a kinder, gentler, Rupert Type. Otis says the odds make for an opportunity for him to get richer....

With this heat and awesome bad humidity, it's going to be a struggle. I think I am already on some kind of probation until the end of August, so Otis is going to push me as hard as he can to fail. We plan on a little vacation when the TT gets out of the shop, so maybe I will be banned during that time away and it won't matter much? Wow....Otis already has me thinking in the wrong direction....

I should be thinking positive thoughts.......Hooters..Hooters..Hooters.......I bet their burgers are wonderful and the beer icy cold!
Don't leave before next Friday.

If he could make it snow here in August I'd pay all his expenses and give him a big bonus too! The aroma of Otis burning old tires would be sweeter than the scent of roses over this gawd awful humidity.

At least another 45 days of this I fear. I have been dreaming of that nice dry atmosphere on our trip when we got west of Denver. I actually felt pretty damn good for a change.

BTW- Unless it is a life or death need, I do not recommend Texas in August, in particular this year with all the rain and humidity.

I'm doin' pretty good today as a kinder gentler Rupert Type.....I have avoided conflict and most foul language. Otis says he hasn't changed his odds any and doesn't anticipate doing so. More and more I have doubts about Otis being a true friend?

That reminds me of a prayer.
Lord, so far today I've not been angry, ill tempered, or treated anyone unkindly; but I'm going to get out of bed now and I ask that you give me strength to deal with the idiots I'm sure to encounter.

Which takes me to the next one.


Lord, give me the strength to not choke the life out of those who desperately need it.

I couldn't find an appropriate Otis Award for you Racer, but you do deserve one for your restraint!

I had an opportunity to shred a certain person recently, and instead went relatively easy....I must be slipping in my old age? P&R was a great place to unleash your frustrations, which often had little or nothing to do with the opponent or the topic at hand. Mrs Rupert got on your nerves?...some poor poster is gonna pay!

No, I do not miss it one iota! I'm the new kinder, gentler Rupert...at least until I am off probation ....again. If you guys were as sharp as Otis you would put me on lifetime probation......anyhow, that's what Otis says.

That looks lovely. My wife has said a pet miniature pig would be fun. I'm not sure that's going to work for me.

It could if you explained that all your friends here would share duties in tending it until it got bacon size? I guarantee I can make a miniature pig bacon size in no time! I have experience galore!

Just put them in a feed box and have Otis keep them locked in until they are ready to grill,
