He looks EXACTLY what I would have thought he would look like.

*That was fake but still fun.


I stopped the truck next to the Grand Canyon. We got out. I  moaned and immediately said, "Okay, let's go."

My wife said, "GO?! We just got here! What's wrong with you?"

And I touched the bridge of my nose and said, "Erosion always depresses me."

And a good time was had by all.





As mentioned prior, I used to carve tiny cutlery.


Try to keep up...



My wife once applied Chapstick throughout our entire 13-minute conversation.

That looks like fun!


I would have drop-kicked that little fucker into next Tuesday.


And there is nothing "cute" about this assault...


In case you need a hint...


The dress Carol Burnett wore (designed by Bob Mackie) in "Went with the Wind" is in the Smithsonian.

The whole nation erupted in laughter at the sight of it.

The stainless steel bit on the bow makes me think this isn't the first time he's had a docking mishap.

When I was in Europe the natives went shopping every day for the evening meal. There was always a small grocery, meat market, and bakery wishing walking distance. I've seen countless men and women toting baguettes home in the evening.
