Just expanded it south to include Douglas at 8pm. We could use the rain.

Added some missing prepositions, took out some missing ones. Should read much more clearly now.

Hey JK if you haven't filled Whitney's job I'm applying. Just seat me in front of the big red disapearedededing button and call me "Loretta".

Funny, we have an app server named Loretta. So, about 10% of the time, all your comments arrive in my email from a server named Loretta. Could be you!

Oh, good. Booms from the sky and booms from the ground. Didn't you people use up your fireworks the last five days?

kernal 3 years, 5 months ago

Let it rain. Anybody that doesn't have their brome rolled up by now, too bad.

RoeDapple 3 years, 5 months ago

My neighbor rolls his own but I never heard him call it brome . . .

As a former truck driver, for me there is one constant. What I don't know I at least have an opinion on . . .
