"There should be a rebuttal option." - My_Life

Um...Actually there is. It is called posting a rebuttal....

Miss Crump, My_Life said "Blow" and "Butt" as in rebuttal. Is that against the user agreement.

Darin, some of the folks on here specialize in being cruel and inconsiderate. It helps them live with themselves in a twisted way. I hope you don't read these comments and take them to heart. Jesus loves you. Many years ago Indyan was interviewed for OTS and they didn't give Him any chance to think about His response, then they go and print it for all the world to read and for the immorals to poke fun at. There should be a rebuttal option.

Looking forward to: Cooler weather, no or low humidity, the death of skeeters. Not looking forward to: The Annual Invasion of the Wolf Spiders (I know they are harmless and eat lots of the aforementioned skeeters, but do they have to live in my bathroom?

Going to finally be able to cook out this weekend without having to hose down with repellent.

Hollis, as long as you didn't have to endure this coming out of the bar:

Well, I got thrown out of the Shenago and chased home by the cops. Miss Crump, when Alan gets here, don't give him advice, please. I actually used to think you were kinda hot.

So, this isn't like a tornado warning? Because all I want to do is go outside and look up.

C'mon, Ms. Crump. We all understand your intentions and appreciate your position but, geez, can you lightten up a little? Am sure even you have been a little frisky before in the past.

Duck and cover? Hell, Ima gonna stand out there with my baseball mitt. You got any idea what satellite scrap goes for in the souvenir market?

Speaking of moderating, my security software keep blocking access to the JW articles under sunflower horizons. I always get something like this---

"http://sunflowerhorizons.com/groups/r... This Web site has exhibited suspicious behavior or is similar to Web sites that are known sources of malware, viruses and spam. Visiting this site may put you at risk or compromise your identity or privacy."

Thus, I cannot read those article unless I bypass it. May Alex should check into that.

I'm sure the hairdresser school isn't downtown anymore, but I remember going to it when I was in school for haircuts, and later, every known chemical process that could be done to your hair. They'd do anything for $5. Walked up a long wooden staircase from the street and there it was---a big open 'salon' with rows of bonnet style hairdryers and perm solution, hairspray & bleach wofting through the air. The last time I went there, they really messed up and I ended up with completely white hair. I had to wait a week before I could buy a box of dye and put it back to brown. The second to last time I went there, they cut my hair way too short. I think I said something like "if I wanted to look like a QTip, I would have said so". One of the teachers had to take over, but by then, it was too late.

Ronaldo, I thought I was hit by satellite debris when I was going down the highway a little while ago..come to find out I hit another squirrel. At least it wasn't a kitty like last time. I didn't know but NASA said that 26 pieces of a bus were coming into the atmosphere this afternoon...but they didn't say if that was Eastern time or Daylight Savings.

Whoever is on the trigger, as Whit could be Lindsey you are Ms. Crump.

My first instinct on this question was to say that I didn't have anything to look forward to since I will be smoted by the satellite anyways...

Speaking of falls, Is everyone wearing their hard hat tonight? Apparently solar flares have slowed the descent of the Magic School Bus and it could land in the U.S.

Embrace the talking rocks. For such a wonderful sunny day I come back and see so much grey. Did Opie mess up on his homework, Helen? I wish it was pink'ed like it used to be.

Hollis, ignore that which is not important in life. Look at the Ms. Crumps of the world as minor annoyance....like a pimple or rock in you shoe...just not a talking rock in you shoe.

Okay, that's it!! I am obviously not welcome here. I shall go on my merry way to the Shenago Lounge, where I am loved, embraced, and King of Beernuts. You all have a great day with Helen Crump moderating. Alex, if you're here now, you need to start cutting me some slacks. Perhaps this will help. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YhcnKY...

Good Day!!

Autie, aren't we talking about Jesus today? What's wrong with you? You need to fall in with me and MyLife. Wooden Jesus where are you from Korea or Canada or maybe Taiwan I didn't know it was the Holy Land But I believed from the minute The check left my hand, and I pray Can I be saved, I spent all my money On a future grave Wooden Jesus I'll cut you in On twenty percent of my future sin

Passing out the cheapest candy I can find on Halloween, then watching the little brats kick our pumpkin down the street. Works every year. I've never had to get rid of my own pumpkin. Thinking Zagnuts this year, or Hot tomales, maybe that generic taffy that comes in plain wrappers. Or corn dogs with ketchup on them. Last year the guy across the street gave out left over Easter candy.

Daylight saving time ending! Vacuuming a billion times to get all of the leaf bits that get tracked in. Pumpkin bread. Making chili or a big pot of soup simmering on the stove all day.

Autie. Please tell me it was a mistake to start a sentence with the word "Like." "Dammit, Calvin" would be what Hobbs would say.

And, Thanks for all that you have done.

Oh lord, please not another Calvinist. Pre-destination is so final and yesterday. Like, if I live to tomorrow at this time, I'm one day closer to my death.

Fall? I look to the safe landing. I must be channeling some spacehog this morning. And please, no Sweeny Todd. Some people I just won't let cut my hair.

Newman's Own Peach Salsa, and everything cait48 says. On another note, having nothing to look forward to in the Beautiful Fall would be such a dismal life that it would not be a life worth living. No family, no children, no grandchildren, not even a pet rock that could stand to be around you. My prayers go out to help such a sad and miserable person. Please seek professional help before it's too late. Indyan says hello and sends His/Her condolences. He/She has been to three funerals of loved ones in the last two months, but yet He/She still sees only the goodness in life. Indyan was really wanting to tell the story of kryptonite and how it brought our lives onto parallel and productive paths by smashing in the top of my Land Rover while driving the Continental Divide in the middle of the night all alone in a blizzard. Literally saved My_Life. Too bad the minerals were a false alarm. The rest of the story will have to wait until an appropriate topic of discussion is initiated. God Bless. Miracles do happen,

Anyone else find it a little disturbing, that there are three boys and an old dude and the old dude is pining for his "boy love"?

Wood smoke, leaves turning, weather cool enough to require a sweater without being painfully cold, pumpkin anything (bread, pie, rolls, etc.), marigolds, hot tea, Irish coffee, chili, steak soup with home made cornbread, Halloween and little kids in costumes, turkey jokes, baking oatmeal cookies, starting the new afghan I crochet every year. Shall I continue?

I read Darin's first sentence and did a double take. Then I read the next sentence and it cleared everything up. I have a sick mind.
