So you would make your spousal unit do dishes in the bathtub while you tiled the countertops?

Absolutely. She should have the foresight to see a project in motion and adjust and adapt as necessary. It should have been a paper plate night with carry out. Units who fail to slight adjustments are doomed from the outset.

Quality corn dogs are made with beef hotdogs, which are getting harder and harder to find.

Irrefutable proof that Al Gore via his blasted invention the internet is killing the planet, and is probably the devil incarnate. Eventually Al Gore will be disdained more than Hitler.

OK, I'll agree to the naked corn dog thing. And Autie is right, soda in whiskey is just a dang shame. I chase my beer with a good bourbon with just a little ice.

A friend of mine got divorced last week for his spending habits at Cabellas. True story.

I am not sure I understand the question.

A cool day for me would be barbeque, round of golf, and a football game drinking beer or just a day laying on the beach somewhere 1000s of miles from here.

But I am not into pampering (giving or taking).....

Did Whit just say she was getting married? Oh Whitney? Or is that just as an ancillary participant?

"Um, I don't know . . . wouldn't that be like eating spaghetti with nothing on it?"

No, it is steak without steak sauce.

"Maybe I've never tasted a "quality corndog""

Get one off the kid's menu at the Free State Brewery next time. They don't mind, and they won't bring you some crayons to keep you occupied, unless you ask.

Well, as you all may have surmised by now I am on full meds this AM. At least it keeps me from being a threatening person and helps get me ready for removal of these damn staples. Time to go, surely I will have come down by this afternoon, probably sleep. Supposed to rain anyway.

Kinda like good whiskey. Why ruin it with soda pop.

Swear to god, I saw these boys put soda pop in perfectly good whiskey. Now that was sack religious...whatever that means.

When Whitney joins us in our morning rant does it go well for the quality of our responses? Or bring her down to the level of our slumfest? Inquiring minds want to know . . .

Ketchup on corndogs? Has the cat layed with the dog? This is obviously another sign of Apocolypse. Corndogs and cheesy poofs sound good.

I'd lie to give Kate a stern paddling. Right now I'm just seeking shelter from the storm. This whole royal wedding thing really bugs me out. I hope they have a matinee when "Fast Five" opens this weekend. I can put on my raincoat, head to the 12-plex, and hide there all day.

And do you always give away a ten year supply?" . . Yep. My Royal A$$ is gonna be payin' for this post for a long, long time.

Roed, Let me understand this, you got the birthday sex but only missed the trip to Cabela's?

0

autie 2 years, 12 months ago

I get Cabelas catalogs. I get a lot of catalogs. I think that is about as close as I will ever get to Cabelas. Oh, I spent a gazzillion dollars there...I think my wife is afraid if I go to Cablelas, I will never come out.

0

RoeDapple 2 years, 12 months ago

Know what you mean about Cabela's. I got a Cabela's gift card for my birthday, hell, Cabela's might as well be in Pakistan as far as me getting there any time soon. The S.O. may be doing some subbing in the near future. Road trip.

Worker bees secrete royal jelly from glands in their heads for consumption by only the queen bee. Although it causes her to put on weight, another side effect is she will live up to 40 times longer than other members of the hive.

Royal pampering, hippie pinko commie pampering, anarchist pampering, it is all the same.

Go out to breakfast for your birthday, be told "today is your day and we can do anything you want", next thing you know you come home with materials for new tile countertops and begin ripping apart the existing ones and you never even make it to freaking Cabela's.

A few years from now, this William dude is going to be having a birthday, thinking breakfast, a little shopping at Churchills of Dereham, then kids asleep and a bit of nookie with the Katemeister. But he will never make it to Churchills of Dereham. No, he will be drinking coffee from the coffee maker in the half-bath on Monday, because the countertops are not grouted yet. And Kate will be all smiles because she escaped the whole birthday sex thing.

Royal pampering, hippie pinko commie pampering, anarchist pampering, it's all the same.

I've been known to feel a bit special after a few sips of Royal Crown. In fact, after a couple of shots of RC I can start to feel it. After about four shots anybody can feel it.

First it would involve sleeping in, then not having to do anything for anybody or any cleaning. No phone calls or knocks at the door, and not having to go anywhere. Of course that will never happen but it would be nice for a couple of days.

Egbert Roscoe Murrow would be celebrating his 113th birthday today. Born in 1908, he was a pioneer in broadcast journalism and was a key figure in bringing about the censure of Senator Joseph McCarthy. A truly royal member of broadcast journalism, long before they thought they deserved royal treatment.

Think I'll get the air rifle out and pop pennies this afternoon. With the scope on it, I can stand a penny on top of a fence post at 20 yards and trim old Abe's beard for him. Would that be disrespectful? Guess I could turn it around and polish the marble on the Lincoln Memorial.

Tell you what though, ever since my back surgery my S.O. has been taking good care of me. You know, bringing me meals, fluffing pillows, tying my shoes . . . really treating me like the master of my surroundings, the king of the household, "He Who Must Be Obeyed!" Trouble is, every time she does anything she walks away muttering "You owe me big for this, you're gonna PAY!" . . Couldn't she at least add "Your Majesty" when she says it?

More morels are to be found tomorrow. Today. Whatever. Out.
