I wish you would'nt use this as your FB page. Not everyone enjoys your "whacky" comments everyday. I miss KU_law, at least he kept it short.

RoeDapple 6 years ago

I miss you too fluxy, it's been a while! If you want we could be facebook friends . . . I'm as boring there as I am whacky here.

"wouldn't" not would'nt. iliterate hater's. I seam to attrak them.

Everybody knows it's 'wacky', not 'whacky.' Could be 'wakky', I guess, but never with the 'h' unless you're really talking about whackin' somebody. Capish?
Now, people sometimes refer to the river south of town as the 'Wakkie' but pronounce it 'Walkie'. These things are always in flux, I suppose.

Wooderson, is that you?
Well, all I'm saying is that I want to look back and say that I did I the best I could while I was stuck in this place. Had as much fun as I could while I was stuck in this place. Played as hard as I could while I was stuck in this place...

The first job I ever had was assembling bicycles. When I got caught up I was told to grab a broom and clean up. The job I retired from was as a driver for a major LTL freight company. If business was slow I was told to grab a broom and clean up.

Guess you could say I was swept away with my work . . .

Full-time beachcomber in the Caribbean, replete with metal detector. I'd find those Rolex watches that people lose all the time -it's true because I saw it on the internet.

I used to bowl with Glasgow, couldn't pick up a spare to save his life. If NRA don't like him , then NRA aint worth listening to. No better kind of folk than Phil.

Just checked. The property owners around me don't even like BBQ.

Darn, looks like I missed some fun. That's my dream job, just having fun.

LadyJ 6 years ago

Not that putting in a new kitchen floor isn't fun. I think Roe would agree with me, it's a great feeling, and very satisfying, to stand and look at something you have created.

I would like to be a translator for Ozzy but I don't think that will happen so I will take my desire to work for the devil and become an IRS auditor

Maybe a photographer for Playboy. Get to see of them ladies come and go and get paid a fair amount of money to make them look better.

I think I will stick with still being Hollis's (Rara's) guitar tech, pay ain't great but the drugs are

At age 10 I began dreaming of being a truck driver. At 16 I got my first driving job on the hayfields around Baldwin. At 53 I retired from 37 years of nearly continuous driving jobs. Some good days and some bad but wouldn't trade a minute of it for anything else. As I have told others, I could have dreamed higher but not better. Few can say the same.

Terry Sexton 6 years ago

Since we're dreamin', I coulda gone this route:

20's - All Star goalie Pro Foosball circuit. 30's - Top ranked Kirby vac salesperson, SW region 40's - Proprietor, Bikram Yoga & Pole Dance Academy 50's - Sugar Mama recipient 60's - Non-incarcerated retirement
