Absolutely Useless Facts About Yourself, No One Cares About

Just watched the 21 jet flyover for Bush's funeral. One plane from the last group of 4 pealed off and climbed into the clouds. Quite moving.
Saw the train on TV.
As far as high profile funerals go this was one of the best ever.
My wife and kids went out to watch it as it entered College Station. We're going to try to go to the graveside this weekend if we can find parking.
Happy for you and your family, wish I could have been there.

Excellent.

I just repurposed a Rusty pipe sock as a rosary case. I think it's what he would have wanted.
Undoubtedly.

I found a half full luxury pouch of Prince Albert in the very back of my lower desk drawer. :dance:
It's got to be five years old or more. And it's still moist.
Cares. They are happening.

Please tell me you had the first pinch in a cob, please.

I just took a crucifix to the back of the head at family rosary time. Full contact sport, the rosary. :D

Was it in Rusty’s pipe sock?


Hello FredS
It sounded better when the voices in my head were saying it.

No. It was my youngest and her purple crystal lariat of Dad bonking.

Perhaps next time you should be wearing a +2 Helmet of Salvation.

Was wondering about pipe socks because pipes don't have feet.

Great, you can't post something like that and not get asked for pics.

Not having a car, I took the #26 crosstown bus to a barber shop and got a haircut and beard trim.
I paid the Senior price for both the bus and the haircut.
My bride and I took a trip to the mountains and had lunch at a Mexican place we've heard about but had never been to.
We ordered off the Senior menu.
The food was great but the guacamole not so much.
After reading my MRI scans, my doctor is referring me to a spine specialist.
Right now i'm waiting for a rocket to launch from Vandenburg AFB, which I should be able to see from my front yard (or so I've been told.)
UPDATE: The rocket launch was just scrubbed, Not that you'd care.

For a moment there I thought you were travelling somewhere by rocket. On senior rates, of course.

Before I lit the first fire for this winter in our fireplace last night, I checked the damper, and there was a wasp nest with 5 or 6 red wasps on it.

Did you leave them and let them roast or did you move them to a new home?
