Well then, that settles it -- I definitely don't want to be in Alaska.

These ones, a long time have I watched. All their lives as they looked away. Never their minds on Where. They. Were!. Hmm? What they were doing! Hmph.

Hey Napolean, what kind of gun did you use?

(...and did you attempt to conceal it?)

sgtwolverine 11 years, 10 months ago

Wrestling a wolverine to the ground? Wow, that would be fun to watch.

It's probably wise of you not to enter Michigan looking for wolverines. Believe it or not, it was big news when someone actually photographed a wolverine in Michigan. As I recall, it had been at least 100 years since anyone could verify such a sighting.

trinity 11 years, 10 months ago

that song always used to annoy me-still does.

i'm where i'm supposed to be right here right now; but if i were dreamin', i'd be puttin' down a sunny highway on a run from kansas to _ on a Harley. sigh thanks, now i'll never get any work done today! ;)

Hawaii on the beach, there is no place better!

Wastin' away in Margueritaville with Jimmy B . :o) Searchin' for my lost shaker of salt!

ms_canada 11 years, 10 months ago

Another possibility would be Down around Biloxi, with Jimmy of course!
Out on his boat with a pitcher of Pina Coladas hmmm!!

Man, I'm in Brooklyn right now. Give me Lawrence, KS any day. Marion...looks like you might have some time on your hands. Ever consider volunteering your formidable resources and time to those who might need it.

Panama City Beach, FL Manhattan, NY So. Padre Isl. camping in the badlands, SD Vegas, sunning myself beside the pool at MGM at home in bed There are many other places I'd rather be right now. Too numerous to list.

Eudora, they don't have roundabouts or the T-bus !

badger 11 years, 10 months ago

City-wise, I'm happy with where I am.

However, I'd really prefer to be on my back porch right now, drinking coffee, watching birds, and playing online games on the laptop.

In the last office move, I got one without windows. Bleah. I used to be able to watch grackles.

kansas_prairieland 11 years, 10 months ago

I'd like to spend spring break at the Phelps compound in Topeka. I'd like to be able sit by a warm fireplace and listen to the....Ahem!....."Reverend" Fred go on in detail about God's hatred for all-things-homosexual. And after several hours of his ranting and raving....maybe the two of us could go out for a beer.

And who knows? Maybe after the old man is drunk...he'll spill the beans and admit that he himself is a homosexual? Boy! Wouldn't that be something?!

acg 11 years, 10 months ago

hehe KP, is that one of those "I think he doth protest too much" sort of things? I know his granddaughter. She's been excommunicated from the family because she doesn't hate enough. She told me once that she always had her suspicions about him and what side is bread was really buttered on. I would love for someone to get photographic proof of that. Woohoo! Brokeback Baptist Church. :)

Linda Aikins 11 years, 10 months ago

So, all of you want photos from my upcoming trip to northwestern Oklahoma and SW Kansas via TOB and MD's stomping grounds? I can arrange that! I thrive on envy.

I've skied Clark County before. Interesting..."That was no mogul - that was a cow chip! Let's throw it!"

kansas_prairieland 11 years, 10 months ago

Oh, acg.........I'm sure there have been many, many times in the Reverend's life where he has had both of his buns.....Ahem!....."buttered"!!! And I'm also sure that over the years he has "buttered" more than a few buns himself! LOL!!

badger 11 years, 10 months ago

Marion -

Please give credit where credit is due.

That is not a Jimmy Buffet song.

He may have covered it at some point, but it's not his.

We may have to put up with your inane posting of the lyrics of that song and those of the second-rate last-ditch effort to cash in on the 'Beach Boys' name before 'fat, bald, and old' finally shuffled off the majority of the band, in addition to your occasional Birdcage-style lapse into showtunes, but you could at least have taken ten seconds to run it through google and find out whose song it actually is.

Rupert Holmes released the song in 1979 per wikipedia and google.

Good Morning Everyone!!!!!!!!!!!!

I would like to be anywhere but here this week. Somewhere tropical, warm and sunny. White sands and cold drinks in hand. I really wouldn't care where just as long as it had all of the above.

Is is going to get a bit warmer, maybe sunny? I need to remulch my playyard.

Linda Aikins 11 years, 10 months ago

So YIP, you are going to have some Mulch Madness?

sgtwolverine 11 years, 10 months ago

I believe it's supposed to be both warm and sunny in July. Or so I'm led to believe.

sgtwolverine 11 years, 10 months ago

Hey, I have a friend (soon to graduate with a dual major in aerospace engineering and engineering physics -- she's kind of nuts) who just interviewed with a major oil firm based in Houston. Although if she takes the job, it sounds like she won't be anywhere near Houston for long stretches of time.

kansas_prairieland 11 years, 10 months ago

I think Marion is confusing "Escape: The Pina Colada Song" with Jimmy Buffet's "Margaritaville".

Linda Aikins 11 years, 10 months ago

Prospector - YES!!! When it was opened, we spent lots of time in the Sitka Social Club (so named because it is in Sitka Kansas and was a takeoff from the Cheyenne Social Club). And Don's in Protection - great steaks!!!

How in the wide wide world of sports do you know those places??

badger 11 years, 10 months ago

I'm not a cold hearted beast of doom.

I'm a warm hearted badger of correct citation.

kansas_prairieland 11 years, 10 months ago

Okay, so I get on LJ World just now and I go to type a message......and according to the LJ World........I'm "One More Bob" LOL!!

This is hilarious!!

WTF is going on with this site??

RonBurgandy 11 years, 10 months ago

kp - go back two days and read the ots responses.

outoftowner 11 years, 10 months ago

My day is ruined. I didn't know the "round" barn wasn't actually round, but "sixteen sided". hmmm

linux_chick 11 years, 10 months ago

I'd like to be in sunny California.

Wait a minute... ;)

Linda Endicott 11 years, 10 months ago

What spring break?? That's only for kids...

Now, if I got spring break from work, that would be great...

kcwarpony 11 years, 10 months ago

I would rather be anywhere but here...I have a dentist appointment tomorrow :(

sunflower_sue 11 years, 10 months ago

kcwarpony, my kiddo is with you...she has a skin graft on her gum tomorrow. Oh the joy of braces!

I'm w/ Ms_C! I wanna be in margaritaville with her and Jimmy Buffet. Who's coming with us? You're all invited. (Glad someone corrected the Rupert Holmes/Jimmy Buffet mix up. That was comparing apples to oranges and would have eventually led to my complete mental breakdown:) Maybe I'll just drive out to the racetrack and have a cheeseburger in paradise.

kcwarpony 11 years, 10 months ago

What bothers me is lying there with my mouth wide open and someone in there playing around! It's not natural: sun sue, your kidlet is braver than I could ever hope to be!

I see we're on the Tilt-a-Whirl again. I've been prospector, OMB, wonderhorse, and now Multidisciplinary: :o It's not natural:

Confrontation 11 years, 10 months ago

TOB-Hats off to you for living through that! I had all of mine removed 2 years back, and I received all dry sockets to go with it. One of the worst recoveries ever! I couldn't imagine having it done while I was awake.

kcwarpony 11 years, 10 months ago

I thank the Creator for my big mouth! All four wisdom teeth came in with no problems! We've all lived very happily for 20 years now. Had a metal filling crack a tooth and had to have a crown put on. Now having the rest of the old fillings drilled out (!) and replaced before they do the same. It's not cool to make a pony whimper but I know how to take complete control of the dentist (an old joke) and I'm not afraid to do so!

RonBurgandy 11 years, 10 months ago

TOB - Why do you have a problem with going under? Are you afraid of what happened in a certain Seinfeld episode?

sunflower_sue 11 years, 10 months ago

Goody, I'm kcwarpony! Awesome! I've got you all beat as far as the mouth/throat surgeries! I had my tonsils out...TWICE!!! Once at 34 and again at 35. Pardon my language but that sucked big time rocks!>:[ 3 full weeks of recovery each time. OUCH! (Yes, I'm a wussy, I guess.)

sunflower_sue 11 years, 10 months ago

Oh, BTW, kiddo gets the funny gas while they give her tons of shots and then she gets to lay back and watch a DVD while they do their thing. Pretty cool!

kcwarpony 11 years, 10 months ago

The gas doesn't work on me :( I'm always wide awake and very alert. Hmmm, wonder if I could use the "Boog" method!

OldEnuf2BYurDad 11 years, 10 months ago

I'd rather be hunting wild pigs from a helicopter.

Actually, the wife and I are heading to Colorado on Friday morning for a late spring break.

sunflower_sue 11 years, 10 months ago

c_v, You just went and ticked me off. Don't you know about my campaign to keep city people in the city? It's wild out here in the country. They would only be eaten alive. (Hanibal Lector is a good friend of mine):o)
