Betty isn't feeling well enough to go to school, but is out answering OTS questions. In my day that was called playing hookie! ;)

A little known advantage is that when you're born on February 29th, you get TWO birfdays: the 28th and 29th. Take it from a leaper!

hmmm I could use that extra day to take a shower. Gettin' mighty stinky in the nether regions!

I'm thinkin' I might pounce. Then again I might hurdle, skip, spring, jump, vault or hop. Or nothing at all. It's all good.

You first Pitt. If it goes away I'll know it's not me.

No hail just south of Larryville but the grill went stem-winding across the deck. Glad it was tethered somewhat by the propane line. My 16 y/o buddy has a birthday today. He was born 64 years ago. In another 20 years, he can start drinkin' all legal like.

Nice demographic of Lawrence. Two worker bees with one playing hooky. One that is going to a party and another who who is a KU-er

It's a tough choice between Hydrogen Sulfide or a something ballistic. Probably just flip a coin.

Yah, autie, we gots a propane grill. hangs guilty head in shame When mama wants a burger, she don't cotton to watin' too long for it. Just push that button & whOOsh! I'm grillin' before you can say 'where's the Kingsford?' Now, I'm at least smart enough not to call it barbecue. All the briskets & ribs are done proper in the wood smoker. For Leap Day, g-rock & rara have inspired me to start digging a luau pit. Anybody know how to carve a whole pig?

"Anybody know how to carve a whole pig?"

I can but would want to do it as an art project in front of Weavers.

Actually a very good drummer in real life. Contrary to rumors all the Monkeys were musicians.

It was No Trousers Day here at Snap's College of Cheese Making and Taxidermy.

I was planning to, but it turned out to be an ordinary day so I forgot.
