cockney rhyming slang - butcher's (hook) = look. although I doubt most Brits know the origin.

I think the Tower House is fascinating and super cool—but for actual living I like a place where I can flop on the couch and put my feet up.

When I was in Real Estate I saw a house that had no straight lines in its architecture. Even the cabinet doors and other doors were curved. Must have been a nightmare to get all those parts manufactured and then the construction and installation. Fawgetaboutit.

...and now my post makes no sense because Gilmer completely changed/edited hers.

Thanks Sao! Liza Jane is not my real name but my dad has always called me that and sang me that song when I was little! You just gave me some happy thoughts of my dad today... singing that song!

I got my lab results back and everything is good...except the report says I should lose weight. I already knew that and I am working on it.

Going to get the game on in a minute!

I’m glad the test came out good, LizaJane.

Bim, we always call ear defenders “hearing protection.” We use the headphone-looking things often for shooting.

Excuse me? The report said: You need to lose weight. Really? In writing?
And do they charge you for tests in order to determine that? Gosh.

I think you look great....well, is that you in the chair from the back? You do not look overweight to me.

And bim.....yeeeeeeeeeeeesssssssssssssssss........Ms Gilmer and her changing posts......has happened to me a few times over the years.....she is fast I tell you, quick as lightning....

Lucky we love her so much.

I use the "edit" pretty liberally myself. Perfectionism begone I tell ya. Or is it always needing to get that word in edgewise? Either way for me, I make good use of that feature.

Once the 15 minutes is up, it's on the interwebz fo-evah. Scary, yo.

My granddaughter just relayed the following message from my 4-y-o grandson:

“Eli says your fat and a big poop”

I responded “Tell him to kiss my fat butt.”

Apparently he found that amusing.

When I get over to their house I’ll chase him and threaten to swat his behind.

Greetings, all.

I once made the mistake, while visiting friends in London, of commenting on the beauty of their back yard .They were aghast (in good humor, though) that I referred to their beautiful garden as a pile of asphalt

On another note, we once found ‘evidence’ that a bear had travelled through our yard. There had been reports that a young bear had been seen in our and another neighboring county (where it was ultimately captured) and taken to a usual bear territory. Until it was caught, I suspended lawn and garden chores.

A great day to all.

When I was in 10th grade I had this terrific World Cultures teacher named Mr. Nichols.

He was very personable and his class was quite interesting.

Every year when the yearbook photographer came in to take his picture, he would drop what he was doing, put on a face of mock rage, run over to one of the class clowns, and pretend to yank his hair backwards.

I don’t think he ever had a student who didn’t think he was terrific!

Thank you Venus, that is me in the chair. The report tells me my BMI and suggests that losing a certain percentage would improve my cardio vascular health (which other tests indicate is fine)...then it goes on to suggest various calorie levels for different activity levels and suggests exercising and joining a gym and ways to get active. It was a bit irritating to read, but it is a form that is spit out...not really directed at me. So people in my BMI range get to read they are obese and that word is very upsetting to me.

Gilmer you are very funny, I bet your grand daughter adores you!
