Tutorial for the curious: Some can.. Roll over avatar to get gray box, see arrow on right. Choose comment history, that page shows larger photo.

If you happen to have a set up that doesn't allow you to get that gray box (it happens), you can access the user's profile page via a few methods:

Right click on the avatar, open in a new tab or whichever browser option you have. Then choose 'view all' where it show the number of total comments. This takes you to their comment history.

Another way is to click on the user's name. This also takes you to their profile page. Then follow the same instructions for 'view all' above.

Sorry, folks. The avatar picture box is too small to contain the wonderfulness of biscuits and gravy.

See, I had no idea what TOB's avatar was either. Thanks for the clarification. I had a touch of spring fever on Tuesday when it was gorgeous outside. Need more days like that.

Oh, and my avatar is a pair of running legs. Just FYI if it's not clear. Damn tiny pictures.

TOB, what in the world is that avatar picture? I can't tell if that is a snake head looking at me or some kind of coated pastry with chopped nuts on it.....that whole vision thing runs in the gene pool.

Man, I love these people! Wink wink? WTH? How about Oink Oink? And you would think that the first guy is the normal one. Wrong!! He's getting ready to walk across the street to Dirty Dillon's and start shooting poeple at random.

In other sports news, I saw how Coach Gill isn't going to allow his coaches to cuss. Where did he find them, Heritage Baptist Church? Christ, I think it's in the rulebook that cussing is mandatory in football. I'm getting a whiff of Terry Allen. Hope I'm wrong.......

No doubt. I'm gonna start hangin' out at the Speedway Shell. Ask the question there everyday! Much cooler than the Merc. I don't know who's trippin' harder, #3 or #4 but they can come over and hang out in the Spacehog Man Cave anytime. Speaking of trippin', I'm kinda outta the loop. When does KU play in the Championship game? Are we playing North Carolina again? That would rule. See, they don't have TV's in the joint in Tiajuana so I missed all that.

I got it last week. I thought it was due to the tick I pick up on recon at the compound.

I'll have Spring fever when the warm weather arrives and the ladies wear less. Conspiracy theorist? Does that mean unemployed psychotic? Not sure, the voices in my head are arguing over it right now, I'll get back with you. (wink, wink) Whatever, they found an odd buch for this question. Welcome back Spacehog!

K, I don't know if I admire you or am getting envious. But I stand in awe either way. The first time I heard that song was a 70's cover version by Olivia Newton John. Blekkkk! Bob's version is much better. Almost everyone has tried to cover a Dylan song, the most successful being the Hendrix version of "All Along the Watchtower", so damn good that most people don't even know Bob wrote it. Some trivia: Bob Dylan and Jimi Hendrix "met" one time. Bob was riding his bicycle in Greenwich Village. He pulled up next to a limo at a stoplight. Jimi Hendrix was sitting low in the back seat. They said hi to each other, Bob told him how much he loved "Watchtower", and that he was thinking of maybe recording "The Wind Cries Mary". They would never see each other again.

I really need to cut back on the blow. I just created a blog. I swore I would never do that. It's called The Whacky World of Spacehog. I probably won't blog everyday, and I'm sure I'll eventually get pinked, but check it out and holla at me if you like.

Space - Yeah, she sort of looks like a turtle while sober. I can't imagine what kind of hideous reptile she looks like while tripping. Take care.

Sorry about the neighbor lady, Bob. And thanks for the mescaline. It would have saved me some Mexican jail time and close encounters Ron Jeremy look-a-likes if I only knew. I'm usually drunk when I stop by and it always seems like she wants me. I was sober th other day though, and I noticed she looks a lot like Maggie Gyllenhaal. It won't happen again, believe me.

I have Spring Dress Fever.

Good to have you back, Spacehog. This isn't a big deal, but next time I leave malt liquor and mescaline out for you, can you leave the neighbor lady alone. Thanks.

On a sad note, I saw on the news this a.m. that Dennis Hopper(b. Dodge City, KS) is dying. Not dead, but dying. Man, that sucks. That dude has ingested more drugs than I could in 3 lifetimes. In fact, if he hadn't sobered up about 10 yrs. ago he'd probably be fine now.

It was revealed in October 2009 that Hopper is suffering from prostate cancer. In January 2010, it was revealed that it is inoperable, terminal and advanced.[3][4] As of March, 2010, he is reported to weigh only 100 pounds and is unable to carry on long conversations.[5]

Well multi, the dog recongized right off this morning that it did not appear that I was going to work. But he did notice, right off the bat, that it was friggin raining. Spring fever? Right now it is more lke Spring Pissed Offness. I think Momma gots a list for us though. I am generally opposed to out right fishin in the rain.

Man, it's great to be back! Hell Yeah I've got Spring Fever! Let me tell you where I've been. My burnout neighbor, Denny, told me Spring Break was LAST week. So I'm thinking cool, nobody around here has any mescaline or peyote so I'll pop down to Tiajuana and raid the drugstores. So I hopped on my bicycle(DL revoked permanently). Christ, that took long enough. Then, the first drug store I go to was a DEA setup. The "druggists" recognized me right away. I'm pretty popular with the DEA. They were cool to me, but they threw me in a cell with about 5 guys who looked like Ron Jeremy and were NOT nice to me. Luckily, I'm tight with Joe Biden. We get together and cuss up a storm. So 2 phones calls and an hour later and I'm riding first class on Air Force One with the first lady sitting on my lap. Stellar! My advice would be to not go to Mexico. Plus, I don't see how anyone could find Ron Jeremy attractive, although he came off pretty cool on that reality show.

Dammit, Freeman! Stay out of the news, or I'm not gonna let you crash with me anymore.

“Ladies and gentlemen please welcome the poet laureate of rock 'n' roll. The voice of the promise of the '60s counterculture. The guy who forced folk into bed with rock. Who donned makeup in the '70s and disappeared into a haze of substance abuse. Who emerged to find Jesus. Who was written off as a has-been by the end of the '80s, and who suddenly shifted gears releasing some of the strongest music of his career beginning in the late '90s. Ladies and gentlemen — Blathering idiot, Spacehog!!!!!!
