I don't get how he rides all off balance since he had things removed?

Well, some bike-riding sissy removed my first comment. Just because I mentioned Lance Armstrong. It's not my fault he rides his bike with no seat. Dilrod.

Roe, I'm trying to picture how your socks might've worn out. That usually involves motion, does it not? :-O}

if your sweet potato stuff, autie, is as good as your mower selling skills, c'mon over. shoulda posted earlier or I shoulda read earlier or something becuz I, too, sold a mower today, a Cub Cadet for a c-note. A quick review of the sale's return on investment indicates I'm doing it wrong. More room in the barnette, though, and it runs as good as the first day I never used it.

I monitor craigslist (among other sites) now that I know my new best friend is there. But like here, he doesn't last long.

What the hell are you talking about? I haven't complained any advice.

Oh just shut up. Did you ask me about any cooking tips lately? That's what I thought...do you know about if the shoe fits wear it? What does it matter anyway, we are all going over to '52's house. 52, I'll bring some sweet potato stuff if that's OK...

I am so proud. I just sold a lawnmower on craigslist...that thing really does work. I got $260....and that will be the last time my neighbor wakes me up with that crap on a sunday morning for awhile...bastard.

I think H_Lecter may be using my freezer out in the garage without my knowledge. Found some mighty suspicious looking packages out there.

everyone have a happy holiday! Don't blow anything off! Though I'm sure some of you will...

Runners and bicyclists are a bunch of overachieving delrods.

' what's everyone cooking for the 4th' I'll get back to you after I check the expiration dates on the stuff in the freezer.

Such a consult could be retorted with an accusation of wanting to make people sick. I say, never ask for advice if the you are going to complain about the advice you recieve.

Tired of hamburgers and hot dogs? Sounds to me like you cain't have no hot dogs no how cause of your religion. Gawd danged terrorist. May Allah fire a bottle rocket into your no fly zone.

Started off last nite with poke chops. Switching to grilled yardbird tonite with some Sweet Baby Ray's on it. 'The Sauce is the Boss!' Tomorrow it's shrimp on the grill - colossal size, raw in the shell. Butterfly 'em a little bit & baste 'em really good with some extra virgin olive oil. Crack some pepper & sea salt over 'em & cook about 2 minutes per side. The shells will turn bright pink & the meat becomes opaque like tiny lobsters. So good! For Uncle Sammy's birthday, it's ribeyes. Yum, I love me a good Holiday Weekend! Oh, yeah, the Tour is cool. I'm with Nicolas; ya gotta love the non-injury wipeouts.

Same here. We are ditching all that and having sausage. Maybe a beer butt chicken. That's really easy to do. Ribs are always good. Consult RI for proper temperature of chicken thighs if you cook those.

Anything as long as mustard is nearby!

Katie Tornadie leaving? Right after Whit left us? Something strange is afoot round these here parts. Bring me the tinfoil, Jimmy!

And...maybe we could bring back Arensberg shoes downtown then I'd go there more?

The run up the Alps appears to be the most grueling leg of the Tour De Larryville. Socrabluuue(SP doh!) and crepes, what a bunch of crazies.

The one in spandex are easy to body check when negotiating the bar at Free State.
