  1. Wood.

  2. This poat is giving me wood.

  3. Small child: How do you make a living mommy?

    Cha Jong Rye: “I make wood tentacle art!

  4. Interesting.

    Nice job dragging us kicking and screaming to the art museum, bus driver!

  5. wakey wkaey.

  6. Drove the dog and the baby to the base this morning so the wife could comfort the baby while we road here. Meltdown started about 20 minutes from destination when we dropped Benny at camp.

    Then they told my wife that monthly daycare was going from $600/month to $690/month. She was going to tell them we were quitting, but man did that make it easy.

  7. Hmm, maybe we should open the H2 Daycare. Sounds like it pays good.

  8. Who melted down, leon? You?

  9. $600 for baby care?

    *shits self

  10. That’s why I bartended when I had babies. Pat worked days I worked nights. Easy peasy.

    Hmm, maybe we should open the H2 Daycare. Sounds like it pays good.

    Toddlers can make about three wallets an hour, times $15 a wallet…

  12. They also have a progressive pricing scheme. We are in the highest income bracket they have. At the lowest bracket we’d pay about half of that. We talked about divorcing on paper again briefly.

    It’s also on base, so it’s basically a monopoly. They have a wait list.

  13. Possum melted down on the way there. I calmly listened when I heard that the robbery we were declining was about to get.

  14. >>$600 for baby care?
    >>*shits self

    It is $2400 in NY suburbs. And the people whose kids go there are all democrats. And they worry about income inequality a lot, while sitting in their 2 million dollar houses.
    And they will all vote for Bernie Sanders.

  15. A-fricking amazing wood craft. I love the 6th pic. To make wood look like rumpled sheets. Man.

  16. I rushed him to the vet. She could not find a pulse in his after-parts and said that he had clot. Heparin did not fix it and we lost him.
    It was very hard.

    —–

    That’s very sad, Chrispy.

  17. That circle deal is amazing too.

  18. Any update on Teresa? Is she still in the hospital?

  19. The guys reviewing scores mentioned that players from Texas were tweeting during halftime they want to transfer…….horrible.

    Coaching change may be in order. All the best players in Texas now go to the schools ranked much higher, TCU, Texas Tech, Texas A&M, Baylor.

    What a turn around from 10 years ago.

  20. the exploding death star is interesting.

    the chicks sofa (or is it a love seat) doesn’t look very comfortable tho

  21. Put your kid in day care = indoctrination into lefty bullshit at the earliest age

    It’s an infection that won’t stop spreading until parents wake up.

  22. Day care is one of those “unintended consequences” of feminism, along with needing two incomes to maintain middle-classedness.

  23. We decided to live like paupers rather than have someone else raise our kids.

  24. *Just a thought: Because we moved to places where I knew no one, NO ONE and my husband was working his ass off 12 hour days with traveling, we never (and regardless of who we knew wouldn’t ever) felt any pressure to keep up and consume. My husband is the ultimate, “I could care less what other people think of me.”

    Certainly early on, used cars, walmart clothes, rarely ate out, the park as recreation, no vacations.

    That changed as my husband earned a lot more and we had lots of choices opened to us.

    But we would have given up anything in order for me to stay home.

  25. The future Mrs Morland works from home so she’ll need some help but nothing like daycare.

    I just need to replace (or get close) to replacing her salary then she can stay home.

    I’m working pretty hard to get there.

    *opens beer

  26. Yeah, we’re going to forego the second income (unless she gets some weekend or evening photography gigs). Not a brag but I make plenty for us to live on, she just really likes her job so this is hard for her.

  27. I just need to replace (or get close) to replacing her salary then she can stay home.
    I’m working pretty hard to get there.

    smooooooooch

  28. I might be able to trade up on income to compensate. Potential future boss still hasn’t been able to visit.

  29. Leon, is it something that she could do freelance from home?

  30. Not a brag but I make plenty for us to live on, she just really likes her job so this is hard for her.

    I was wondering about that. Thought so. It’s hard now for some women who have been working, they DO like their jobs and the thought of staying home all the time with a child(ren) is daunting. I’ve heard this from lots of women. Once you’ve left the farm and all that.

    Not necessarily your wife but women find it too hard to stay home all the time with kids, it’s easier to go to work. And I understand that it’s hard. Very hard.

  31. 1) I would never put my kid in daycare. Not judging. Much. Sorta I am. I mean I know some people have no other option so … but I couldn’t even send my babies off to school so …

    2) Kids in daycare/preschool etc get a TON more illnesses. People like to say this improves their immune system but I say BS. My kids are some of the healthiest kids I know and always have been. I did let them play in the dirt a lot so there’s that.

    3) Working very part time is an excellent idea for a mommy (after a few months of babymoon) – because otherwise she will go a tad crazy. EIther work part time or start drinking. Lots of moms get “mommy groups” but I don’t if that helps a lot because then you’re just putting a bunch of slightly crazy women all together.

  32. I chose drinking. NTTIATWWT.

    I remember hanging out at a park and there were a bunch of moms there talking about diapers and breast feeding, and husbands, and cooking and I thought, “I’d rather be isolated and lonely than listen to this shit all morning.”

  33. So, you’re going to have a kid, then have a person making $8.25 an hour raise him/her.

    What could go wrong?

  34. When women gather, they bash men. Talk to anyone in a book club.

  36. So, you’re going to have a kid, then have a person making $8.25 an hour raise him/her.

    What could go wrong?

    Not for long! Soon it will be $15!

    No WAY that will have an impact on the economy, amirite?

  37. When women gather, they bash men. Talk to anyone in a book club.

    Heh, my wife says the same thing. She isn’t the jealous type, so she finds this funny.

  38. I found moms to hang out with but I usually ruined everyone’s day by wanted to talk about actual STUFF instead of our husbands /tv/color of baby poop.

  39. On a related note, I went to Walmart with my husband yesterday and I was appalled, APPALLED at the scum that were there. There were so many people who were dressed as though they were in third world countries, lots didn’t speak English, many others had foul loud mouths, Kids screaming and running around and the crap they were buying was pathetic.

    This is the worst Walmart I’ve ever been to. GROSS.

  40. That’s what you get for going to walmart. I *never* go there. Unless i need to get work shirts. Boy’s department dress white.

  41. She can’t do the ANG job from home at all, but she could freelance photography again. Those gigs are a little rough to get paid at sometimes though.

  42. I ruined everyone’s day by talking about how awesome my husband is, it was definitely a buzz kill to the other ladies. I wasn’t laying it on thick or anything, I just didn’t have any of their experiences.

    Also, they may have felt my vibe: “You married poorly, dummy.”

  43. Ok so Detroit half is not this Sunday but the one after that and I haven’t really been doing long runs as I’m supposed to.

    So my “great” idea is to break up a long run into two or three shorter runs today. I just did 5 miles. So – today I’ll be eating and running. First run went fine.

    Next run in approximately an hour and half or so.

  44. Security, leon? No VPN, damn, they locked it down, huh?

  45. Half a mile doesn’t seem so bad, Car in, I say go for it.

  46. A local radio station sponsored a .2 K run or something. I think it ended at a bar. The whole thing was rather hilarious.

  47. The Walmart by me (where I had worked) is a nice one and the one up by our farm is almost as nice. Don’t know what it is about Walmart that draws out the weirdos. Other than some of the bakery bread being tasty and a buck a loaf, most of their prices are comparable to Target and the local grocery stores.

    I rarely shop there.

    Speaking of which, they have finally brought back the craft/sewing department by us.

  48. The Walmart near me in Texas had an absolutely normal range of people.

  49. I ruined everyone’s day by talking about how awesome my husband is,

    Not at all. I’m glad yours is as awesome as mine. We, too, agreed that one of us — meaning him — would stay home to raise our kids. And we have always lived below our means in order to do so.

    Noone is going to love and care for your babies like you can. Mrs. Leon won’t regret it. I hope she has 4 more. ;)

  50. In my experience, men rarely, if ever talk about their wives. I would never say anything negative about mine, and neither would any of my friends about theirs.

    Have I ever told you what a slob HotBride is? I mean, she leaves the fucking cap off the toothpaste, then leaves the fucking tube out on the vanity. Not only that, but her fucking car is always a mess. Don’t even get me started on laundry and shit.

  51. I meant – MEANING ME.

  52. I used to get everything from Amazon. Errything.

    Now that I have a person that likes to go to Target, I don’t have to do anything shopping related.

    *zips self back in bubble

  53. She’s obviously pushing you away Hotspur. Disrespecting you.

    How are her sammich making skillz?

  54. *opens bottle of Chardonnay*

  55. “I used to get everything from Amazon. Errything.

    Now that I have a person that likes to go to Target, I don’t have to do anything shopping related. ”

    I do about zero shopping. WHen I do it’s from amazon. It’s not so much I hate shopping. It’s the driving. And the stores. And the parking. And the people.

    Outside of that I don’t mind it.

  56. She made me a roast beef sammich on Sunday while I was installing a wall mount for the TV. It sat there for a while, and I said, “Aren’t you going to eat your sammich?” And she said, “That’s for you.”

    I mean, talk about lack of communication.

  57. Mars/Earth Sexting

  58. Mars is a scam.

  59. Hotspur, and you will let it go because her pluses are more than a tube of toothpaste.

    Mr. Beasn has been trying to get me to go to the farm more than I do. I went this past weekend and bossed him around because it’s a farm and he was making fun of me for walking around on my tiptoes since I am paranoid mice and spiders took over the place since the last time he was up there….and he kept wearing his boots in the house bringing in possible cow poop and deer ticks and whatever else walks around on the farm, cooties. Then he wonders why I was walking around on my tiptoes.

  60. “I mean, talk about lack of communication.”

    Wow. I’m sorry Hotspur. Sounds like a living hell. Here … have a scone.

  61. Lots of moms get “mommy groups” but I don’t if that helps a lot because then you’re just putting a bunch of slightly crazy women all together.

    Internet porn has told me all about what this leads to.

  62. First day there, this past weekend, saw turkeys (coulda reached out my window and grabbed one), fawns, a very handsome buck (crop this year is corn), 3 eagles – one of which dove into our pond and got himself a fishie, and a lumbering ol’ possum that made me think of leon. Possums are kinda stoopid.

  63. Here’s a picture of my seahag wife before she heard about me and came over.

  64. Heh, Hotspur’s house is the one that would have scones. Well done, Car in.

  65. DOes anyone else think of CoAlex as the “evil” beasn what with his similar avatard?

  66. First day there, this past weekend, saw turkeys

    Mom and Dad’s house has lots, always out there. My 2 y/o nephew was SOOO looking forward to seeing them. When they get there from Indiana, were the turkeys out? Of course not!

  67. I need to add a little van dyke to my avatard.

  68. A) She is lovely, Leon.

    B) She looks tall.

    C) Is that a dress for LARPING that you young scamps keep talking about?

  69. Beansnsnsnsns, have you always had a farm? And who takes care of it when you’re not there?

  70. hahahahah, I thought that was Leon’s wife.

    Well, same points go for Hotspur.

  71. Alex, why did you switch to a rose avatar?

  72. 1) Mrs. Carruthers is also lovely
    2) Hotbride is tall
    3) It’s incredibly funny when she drops f-bombs with her accent

  73. I just paid the fucking Visa bill. What with moving, and vacation at the Grand Hotel, and new bookshelves, and shit, it was almost five thousand dollars.

    *opens second bottle of Chardonnay*

  74. She was in a re-enactment of the battle of Culloden Moor. That was when England totally fucked the Scottish. They still haven’t gotten over it.

  75. Her nickname in high school was Legs.

    heh

  77. Hotspur, are you assuming I haven’t read Outlander 7 times?

  78. No, I was informing Jay. He’s relatively ignorant on such things.

  79. Mare,

    I like roses and I liked the picture.

  80. Leon too.

  81. I have a subscription to HBO Now, which is actually da bomb. I just finished watching the first season of The Knick, which is also da bomb.

  82. Small confession – when I wasn’t watching The Knick, I have been watching Band of Brothers. When I get to the end of the series, I start back at episode 1. I’ve probably watched it all the way through ten times. I love it.

    HotBride says I have an addictive personality.

    *opens a third bottle of Chardonnay*

  83. Jay, she does photography and videography. Not telecommute friendly tasking even if she could.

  84. One time on vacation, Mrs. Pendejo forgot and left her shampoo and conditioner in the hotel in Vicksburg, MS. So I have to go to a Wal-Mart in Tallahassee, FL to get her some replacement shampoo and conditioner because she would never put that icky hotel shampoo and conditioner in her hair. As I was walking around looking for the haircare products and checking out, I had the strange sensation that something was wrong but I couldn’t put my finger on it. Then it finally hit me…….there were nothing but white people working there. The part of the country I’m from almost never has any white people working at Wal-Mart and certainly there’s not one with ONLY white people. It was really strange.

  85. Thanks Hotspur. I enjoy history, got a lot of it from watching Braveheart.

  86. Video editing should be fairly telecommute friendly, as long as she has a sufficiently powerful system at home.

  87. I wouldn’t expect that in MS either. MA, or MD, but not MS.

    Oso OUT!

  88. He lives in the country, so I would suspect connection speeds aren’t the greatest.

    I download 2 gig databases at home in 10 mins, it’s awesome.

  89. Portable hard drives? Work two days a week in the office and take your work home for the other three days.

  90. Love Band of Brothers, too. Best series ever made on HBO.

  91. I was in the Florida panhandle, but your point stands.

  92. Pretty much the only shopping within 100 miles is WalMart. Not too bad during the day, but after 11:00 at night…..holy crap, what a freak show. Weapons are mandatory.

  93. Oh, so now you want me to read the WHOLE comment?

    Fine.

  94. I love the way they don’t reveal the identity of the vets until the last episode, after you’ve gotten to know all of the characters for 9 episodes. It’s impossible to not know which one is Guarnierre though.

    And I know it’s enactment, but I am in total awe of those men.

    ==========

    I hate you.

  96. Fook.

  97. That was my favorite part, HS. Loved seeing the real heroes.

  98. I thought I saw a new series on WASPs as a companion to Band of Brothers, but I can’t find anything on it.

    HBO is also supposed to do a series called The Mighty 8th. But B24s did all of the work, 17s got all the glory. 24s could fly higher, faster and farther, and carry a heavier pay load, but everyone thinks the 17s won the war. When the 24s were flying in formation with the 17s they were slowed down, and held to a lower elevation, making them more vulnerable.

    Have I ever told you my dad was in the 450th Bomb Group, 15th Air Force? They bombed the snot out of the fucking germans.

  99. With the Officials having it out for the Lions I may be done with football. If I can convince my daughter – then I can cancel the TV altogether.

  100. If it were only editing that could work, we have plentiful bandwidth. But she has to handle the cameras or entrust it to a millenial who sleeps on the job sometimes.

    I’m really hoping the millenial gets fired soon. She’s worthless.

  101. A useless millennial? Unpossible.

  102. 2 farmers from my hometown were B24 pilots. One I had no idea until his funeral.

  103. Send her to work at Sam’s Club.

  104. Jacob Jumped up!!

    I just started reading Joan of Arc by M. Twain last noche. (Thanx for recomending it, mare or ms beasn?).

    Anyway i went to Walmart for the first time this summer looking for large plastic luggers. I was so diappointed because it was totally empty. Where are the freaks i was promised?!!

  105. Here they are, Mr. Chumpo: http://www.peopleofwalmart.com/

  106. Beansnsnsnsns, have you always had a farm? And who takes care of it when you’re not there?

    The husband always wanted some land of his own and three (?) years ago, he bought some to keep for awhile. It has a manufactured home and a pond on it. It butts up against gubmint maintained conservation area and he talked his dad into buying 50 acres on the other side as an investment which a farmer rents for crops.

    It will be used for weekend getaways, fishing, and 4th of July. Right now, we’re still updating some stuff to get the other people smell out.

    When we aren’t there, everything gets turned off but Mr. Beasn goes up to check on things every couple of weeks, in the winter. We only have 3 neighbors down our road…one we don’t see as they live at the other end and up a hill. The other two eyeball who comes and goes.

  107. Yikes.

  108. Yikes.

    I need the eye bleach

  109. Ha, Beasn. A friend of mine moved to a rural part of North Carolina. Was friendly with the neighboring hillbillies, buys ’em occasional beer, etc. He can leave his place and nothing ever gets bothered/stolen. The other people who moved in at the same time, were rude to the locals and their house gets robbed whenever they leave.

  110. ‘Yikes’

    Yeah, your tax dollars are keeping them well-fed and groomed.

  111. That sounds great, Beasnsnsnnsnsnsnsnsns.

  112. When we move into our new place in late January, I want to get HBO and Starz (for Outlander) but I don’t want my husband to ask me why I’m watching porn.

    Mr. Mare: Why are you watching porn?

    mare: Ahhh, I’m just channel surfing?

    Mr. Mare: Why is that midget with a saber raping that woman who he keeps referring to as his “sister’?

    mare: Uhhhhhh, I don’t understand the question, therefore I will not answer.

    Mr. Mare: Are you okay? You sound weird.

  113. Pepe, my husband is the same way. He made sure to get in the good graces of the locals. They do favors for each other and they feed him the local gossip. Both close neighbors are bachelors, one is a vet who likes to keep busy with odd jobs and the other is on disability, mostly anti-social who rents out a small trailer from some redneck chick who has occasional brushes with the law.

    When the place was up for sale, Mr. Beasn did a walk through and noticed many a gun laying around the house. Original owner was a crotchety old fart.

  114. Though we do worry about someone breaking in, with all the hunting that goes on in the area. The road out front has public lake access next to our property, too…..while it’s out of the way, strangers still do make their way down there.

  115. Good to have property when the end times come, beasnsnsnsns.

  116. I guess so.

    Who’s husband was the one reading Joan of Arc? I have been introducing Twain to my nine year old but this one is a bit dry for her yet.

  117. That’s one reason why we bought it, mare.

    Chumpo, it might have been mare’s husband. I can’t remember.

  118. When we move into our new place in late January, I want to get HBO and Starz (for Outlander) but I don’t want my husband to ask me why I’m watching porn.

    Mr. Mare: Why are you watching porn?

    Mr. Mare: Why is that midget with a saber raping that woman who he keeps referring to as his “sister’?

    mare: Uhhhhhh, I don’t understand the question, therefore I will not answer.

    Mr. Mare: Are you okay? You sound weird.

    mare: Why are you still wearing pants?

  119. I think Mare wears the pants in her household.

    ——

    Absolutely not. I could not marry someone who is a milquetoast.

  121. My husband is reading Joan of Arc by Mark Twain.

  122. Twain to my nine year old but this one is a bit dry for her yet.

    ——-

    Yeah, that would be a toughy for a nine year old. But if she starts on Twain that young, she can tackle it later.

  123. Comment by Hotspur on October 6, 2015 2:46 pm

    I think Mare wears the pants in her household.

    Not when she’s watching Outlander.

  124. Things I learned on my recent trip:

    1. I need to buy a pair of slip-on shoes before I fly anywhere again.

    2. Flights seem a bit shorter now that I’m a bit older.

    3. There are a few interesting things to see on America’s backroads, but most of it is flat and boring. Unless you find corn exciting.

    4. Nobody uses e-cigarettes in Central Illinois.

    5. Coming from an area where there are people from all over the world, being around almost exclusively white people for the better part of a week seems strange and exotic.

    6. Having satellite radio spoils you. Getting a rental car and depending on FM radio to stay entertained kinda sucked.

    7. Avoiding political news for a week or so is good for one’s soul.

    8. In the vast, windswept expanse of the Heartland, you’re not likely to find $20.00.

  125. Not when she’s watching Outlander.

    ——

    That may or may not be true.

  126. She loked Huck Finn. It was among the 60 something books she has read this year which just makes my 60 something books read in 44 years look bald and frail by compareson. Im not sure where she gets that ability because i looked away when the orderly at the hospital switched babys for me. I came out way ahead on that deal.

  127. Welcome back to CA, Double.

    They smoke a lot in zee midwest. I had forgotten what it was like to smoke indoors. So weird.

  128. Cult Members, secret bat signal went off on facedouche: new ash pan is available for the PBC

  129. I didn’t go anywhere that had indoor smoking, Chumpy. That may be an Illinois thing.

    Oh, and the Indianapolis Int’l Airport can eat a Hefty bag of dicks. They don’t allow smoking–or e-cigs–anywhere on airport property. That’s just fucking cruel to people who aren’t gonna be able to get a nic fix for several hours.

  130. I dont understand how e cigs can be banned anywhere.

    I understand why they are banned but would love to hear the rational behind the ruling.

  131. Jay smokes so much he needs an ash pan.

  132. I understand why they are banned but would love to hear the rational behind the ruling.

    Because nicotine is de debbil. Also, because The Children™.

  133. Weed, however, is a sacred plant that should be allowed anywhere and smoked freely by anyone.

  134. They don’t allow smoking–or e-cigs–anywhere on airport property.

    http://www.magiccityfamilylaw.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/10/thats-real-retarded-sir-meme.jpg

  135. Penelope already bought a pan for ashes in the PBC. I’ll have to check out the official one.

  136. I don’t really mind the “no smoking” on an airliner. But yeah, the puritanical ban on smoking in airports is a fucking pain. I’ve literally planned flights to avoid airports that don’t have a smoking room inside security.

  137. 5. Coming from an area where there are people from all over the world Mexico, being around almost exclusively white people for the better part of a week seems strange and exotic.

    Fixt para mi.

  138. I’ve literally planned flights to avoid airports that don’t have a smoking room inside security.

    Okay, but these assholes won’t even let you smoke outside the terminal. Or in the parking lot. Fucking insane.

  139. I would think it would be pretty easy to take a few hits off of a e-cig without people knowing.

  140. I snuck a few when nobody else was around, scott, but the setup and liquid I use produce fairly large and fragrant clouds of vapor. For that reason, I try not to be a dick about it and generally limit my vaping to open spaces or areas where smoking is allowed.

    If there are such areas available, that is.

  141. I saw a guy in the Vegas airport vaping out in the open a month or so back. But I’ll be honest, the only reason I noticed was because his wife/girlfriend/hook (not sure which) had a very nice rack attached to her very thin shoulders and long thin arms. That’s the only reason I noticed him at all.

  142. No one should have to stealth-vape.

  143. Oh, before I forget, I waved to the Tempe Mission Palms while descending into Sky Harbor yesterday. You could see the place clearly from the left side of the plane.

    We were too high up to be able to tell if Chad was there, though.

  144. I don’t mind it so much, unless they are being pretentious and in your face about it.

    But that’s the same with everything.

  145. 13 miles

  146. Now I can’t get up.

    SYWM.

  147. What I don’t get are the assholes that are nazis about smoking cigarettes (yeah dope is sacred in your lungs) then lose their shit when you’re vaping.

    STOP TRYING TO F’ING CONTROL EVERY ASPECT OF PEOPLES LIVES YOU LITTLE BITCHES!

  148. Was listening to local radio. They were talking about how mean hillary was for already starting to go after Biden. AND how if Bill wanted to run again, he would win in a landslide ….by women.

    UGH. What a horrible thought. He is pure nasty.

  149. I would rather sit in a bar surrounded by smokers and while eating my GCCB, than have to eat around one asshole kid. I don’t the hostility to vaping.

  150. Biden loves campaigning on the graves of dead family members. That isn’t his weakest point. I’d run a continuous loop of Joey Choo Choo creeping on that poor little girl and the different women.

  151. I just started reading Joan of Arc by M. Twain

    Twain once said about that book, ““I have never done any work before that cost so much thinking and weighing and measuring and planning and cramming”. He also said she was the person he admired most because in all of his research, he couldn’t find a single example of her ever doing anything for her benefit, but always for the benefit of others.

    Now I can’t get up.

    Try watching Outlander.

  153. He also thought it was his best work. That’s saying something.

  154. They’ll make Biden out to be JFK by the time they are done. Remember how he was the foreign policy expert?

  155. Try watching Outlander.

    The skort should be handy for that.

  156. In the writing, Paultics it is evident that he loves the idea of Joan. He had also at the time of the writing lost two of his three daughters.

  157. heh, looks like Bammy won’t have quite the large adoring crowd when he goes to Oregon to promote gun control:

  158. 14 months to go.

    Ive had leftovers in the fridge for 14 months.

  159. Per facebook, sounds like TiFW is going back in for another surgery, internal incision is leaking.

    Say a prayer tonight!

  160. Agreed, Chumpo. The last few years of his life were, by any measure, tragic in so many ways. Losing his daughters, shaking the foundations of his wife’s religious faith, failing health.

  161. He’s a good read, of sho.

    So Thursday’s post is on target to be the H@’s 4000 post! I think that is impressive given the stultifying disfunction that goes for normal around here.

    Good job, H2.

  162. I’m sorry, that comment isn’t weird enough. You’re going to have to do better.

  163. Ten years ago, my cousin, Donald, decided he wanted a new family. Left his wife and 2 kids for a younger chick with 2 kids of her own. Adopted her kids. Basically ignored his kids. FF to Sunday. His son, Donny, died on Sunday. OD. Looks like heroin. 23 years old. He was a great kid. Used to visit my dad with his grandfather. When his dad left, he stopped playing sports and quit BSA. Lives in the heroin capital of NM. Espanola. My Tia and I had a really long cry today.

  164. Horrible news, Jay.

  165. 4000th post? It better be a great one.

  166. Catching up on comments, I guess #MomShaming and #MomJudging is a “Thing” and modern mom’s are stressed and triggered. There was a local news story about it. The women all sounded like idiots and their kids were assholes.

  167. Evening.

  168. Howdy, Jew.

  169. So .. is this real? Bruce wants to go back to being Bruce?

    *excuse me while I go have a good laugh

  170. Is it cocktail time yet?

  171. Yes. Cocktails are served.

  172. *runs to the liquor cabinet, top speed*

    **drops a gyro in Jay’s rum and coke**

  173. I meant to mention that j’ames looks like a new man!!!

    Or … Should I say half the man he was.

    No offense.

  174. Jay is wearing his old tough skins from 2nd grade.

  175. Flint MI made national news for their water issues.
    Stupid liberals.

  176. James, do we get a new POL pic?

    Sorry to hear about Teresa, thank you, Jay.

    Where did you see the Bruce deal, Carin?

  177. also, that is very sad, Ositter. H is a bitch. I never rolled like that, but I had to babysit a friend for 2 years as he got right.

    whoever came up with that old “quitting smoking is tougher than quitting Horse” never knew anyone who was on.

    I never saw a friend who quit smoking pull up the floorboards of his house.

  178. I’m not on FB. What’s going on with TiFW?

    Also, I just spent $600 on Washington Redskins apparel that I intend to wear just to piss off liberals.

  179. She had complications from last weeks surgery. Having more surgery tonight to tweak it.

  180. My condolences, Oso.

  181. What surgery did she have last week? I was in DC last week.

  182. The repair is leaking basically.

    Saw the Bruce thing on facedouche.

    Flint issue has been going on for a few weeks. Detroit raised it’s water prices to compensate for the mismanagement in the water department for the last 50 years or so (I wonder how many folks are VERY comfortably retired in the ‘burbs who used to work there?)

    Basically the new prices are an ass raping so Flint opted to go with local water. Which the pipes couldn’t handle due to the iron content or something and it destroyed shit.

  183. I can let a lot of shit pass on facedouche w/o commenting (because many of my friends are stupid liberals) but I cannot let the Matthew Shepard bs go unanswered.

  184. Would one of you Lickface tools please let Teresa know we are praying for her? I mean drop a note on her page or whatever you do.

  185. Just the word “heroin” scares me.

    Do. Not. Want.

  186. Mare, will do. Thanks, guys.

  187. I just spent $600 on Washington Redskins apparel…

    That’s the spirit!

  188. Thanks, Oso.

  189. Paulitics, she was have a piece of her large intestine removed.

  190. The news report said that the chemicals they have to use to clean up their shitty water is stripping lead from the old plumping, kids are showing signs of lead poisoning. Lead levels are 2-3X above what is considered safe.

  191. That’s what you get for showering.

  192. Ouch, I had that surgery in 2010. About a foot-and-a-half thanks to repeated, severe attacks of diverticulitis. Took a year to fully recover and figure out what the new normal was going to be. I hope she’s okay.

  193. Please let her know I’ll pray for her, too, and will be happy to help her get through the recovery period with what I know. Your life changes in 100 different ways afterward.

  194. Me too Paul. Emergency surgery to keep me alive, then about 3 months later they put me back together.

  195. Messages relayed.

  196. Leon my husband wants to know if your wife uses tricare.

  197. We’ve been working with the Vet to decide when it is Gingy’s “Time”. Thought it was this evening. I’m holding her and crying…she gets pissed off, head butts me, and flounces to the bottom of the sofa. Not today.

  198. We are on BCBS through her federal employee health benefit program at the moment, and have some double-coverage from my job because we weren’t sure about either job when I took the new position.

  199. Your life changes in 100 different ways afterward.

    No more surprise prostate exams I suppose?

  200. PG, my freak out Florida moment was the realization that the landscaping guys were white. Like non-Hispanic white. OK, that and the non-redhead freckles. That, non-redhead freckles, and smoking. That, non-redhead freckles, smoking, and nobody using sunscreen. I apply sunscreen every 15 minutes in FL, other people…slowly turning lobster red. WTF? Do they not have skin cancer in FL?

  201. Leon, ahm bery very glad that you and she have decieded to go full time parent for lil’ ‘possum.
    Full disclosure:
    I was praying that you would get there.

    Good job.

  202. Now if I can just switch back to telecommuting and maybe swing a nice pay bump in the process, life will be grand.

  203. I can see that oso. In our part of the world, if there’s physical or menial labor going on, it’s usually not white folks. That was somewhat different here back when oil was around $100. We had lots of folks coming in from Louisiana, Arkansas, and Oklahoma who were doing shit work in the oilfield. I’ll take Mexicanos to Louisiana swamp trash every day of the week and twice on Sunday.

  204. Messicans or 2nd Gen Messicans? (There’s a difference)

  205. I still don’t accept the AL Astros.

  206. I don’t accept baseball.

  207. Crap. Commies do like baseball. Trying to think of other epithet for Scott.

  208. Scott, was it diverticulitis?

  209. Diverticulitis gone bad. My gut was beyond repair.

    I did the colostomy bag for about 3 months while things healed up.

  210. Does diverticulitis ever go good?

  211. It’s a condition for some people.

    It was an explosion for me.

  212. Holey moley, sorry to hear it. No one can understand the pain.

  213. Inflammation vs perforation.

  214. I think TiFW is also diverticulitis. Is it something in the water here? Wow.

  215. Well, devecolitis can go fucb itself. What, praytell did youall’s doc say procipited the dredfull condition?

  216. Well, our new dog is just plain mean to other dogs, and not very trusting of other people. Hopefully it’s a passing phase.

    Went for obedience lessons, and they had to split up all the dogs. We go back Sunday for 1 on 1.

  217. Im askin for a friend.

  218. Nobody knows.

  219. I thought diverticulitis was about the GI and the heart?

  220. It has nothing to do with the heart.

  221. J’ames good luck with the classes. Socialization is a real issue. Gingy is great with people and dogs. MA is a freak with both. Until she gets to doggie daycare. Everyone loves my divas at doggie camp.

  222. No backsplash and heartburn?

  223. Got to do something, can’t go on like this, just too twitchy.

  224. Oh man. Poor baby. What do the professionals say about Elliot’s chances to be socialized?

  225. Benny went to camp today. Women gush over him wherever he goes. He’d be a great wing man if I were single.

  226. Scott, my Uncle had DIV ended up having heart surgery. FiL had it, stomach cancer.

  227. He’s insecure. It will fade, Jay.

  228. My uncle thought Dachsunds caused IBS.

  229. Scott, I love you. You and Mr Anecdote isn’t data DIT. You’re like science twins that counteract my voodoo.

  230. I’m all voodoo and superstition. You peeps are rayciss.

  231. I love you too, Oso.

  232. I also love you, ositer. And all you fuchtards

  233. Nurse lady is getting me up early, then I have to rent a truck and make miracles happen.

    Good night all.

  234. Still waiting for the H2 Bunker for post America compound. If you guys were on FB, you’d make Pepe’s knives an art post on Tuesday. He’s awesome

  235. G’night Scooter and Nurse Lady with shot arm pain!

  236. Yankee fans are NOT happy.

  237. He was snarling, baring teeth, straining at the leash. Even nipped me.

  238. Por qua? Jay’in Ames?

  239. Got a new dog, and we’re going through transition.

    I hope.

  240. Oh man. Poor Elliot was scared. He really needs socialization. Previous owners were lazy or jerks.

  241. Yep, no history, he was abandoned. He was so good with the other dogs at the shelter, this is frankly kind of a surprise.

  242. Reading up on crate training.

  243. He’s still testing you. Motivated by fear. He has trust issues. Poor doggeh.

  244. Patience Jay. Don’t think that his current behavior will be forever, Your love and his inevitable security with you guys will change everything, Don’t give up. This doggie needs you two.

  245. Well, at least he only pooped once in the house. Didn’t take him out right after he ate (just a little, didn’t think about it). He’s pretty good about going, been taking him to the same place right away, and he’s getting that hint.

    Still freaking out too much, barking a bunch. But getting better, until the classes. Oh well, baby steps.

  246. I know mare, he’s still a cutie, and most of the time he’s a lovable ball of fur.

  247. Training a dog, while mostly easy, is time consuming. Socialization is the key time consuming factor.

    I get the final 4 stitches out of my eye tomorrow. My bad eye is pretty close to my good eye now, and taking the stitches out will allow my eye to revert to a normal shape relieving the astigmatism caused by the stitches.
    Crosses fingers

  248. Time for bed, gnite!

  249. Good luck, V. I would love to drink with you again. You should plan the next meat. Lord knows no one else around her can.

  250. Is it possible for dogs to have short term memory issues. Like they don’t fucking recognize you from one day to the next? That’s about the only thing that essplanes our new dog.

  251. A Houston meat up Chump? While south it is centrally located, and March is lovely. Perhaps I can get Sohos to help me plan.

  252. I think PG might help as well.

  253. PG needs doggeh training.

  254. Yeah. A tx meat os what we need. Get DiT involved. We really need a blowout and nothing beats tx for that. Six or seven months leadtime.
    This is Sparta.

  255. Did anybody tell anybody else that they would enjoy something if they just relaxed and let it happen today?

  256. PSA: https://youtu.be/zAznFz0qSIo

  257. Seanm, can your mom not keep a secret?

  258. I think DiT is closer to Dallas than Houston Chumpo, however if Austin, Waco,Tyler, or El Paso is better I might try.

  259. Tx is tx, V. I doubt anyone in the whole Moron Horde could resist a call to The Republic.
    I think at this time it is absolutly neccesarry to have a Grand Texas Meat.
    The future of the nation may depend upon it.

  260. “I think eminent domain for massive projects, for instance you are going to create thousands of jobs and you have somebody who is in the way, and you pay that person far more — don’t forget, eminent domain, they get a lot of money. And you need a house in a certain location because you are going to build this massive development that is going to employ thousands of people … I think eminent domain is fine.”

    Trump

  261. i don’t get the love affair

  262. that guy is a disaster

  263. Some people just really really really don’t like Mexicans, jam. This is apparently enough to get them to overlook a candidate’s many serious flaws.

  264. I am on the rock and then I check a stock
    I have to derp like a fugitive to save the life I live
    I’m gonna be Iron like a Lion in Zion

  265. Mergn.

  266. Some people just really really really don’t like Mexicans, jam. This is apparently enough to get them to overlook a candidate’s many serious flaws.

    ——

    Sean, I am kind of stunned you wrote this. Do you really think people who agree with Trump about immigration just don’t like Mexicans?

  267. Our Chilean soccer coach (Erin’s team) doesn’t like Messicans.

  268. So a South American doesn’t like another South American? Don’t get the point.

  269. I don’t know if it’s national Chilean pride or what. It could have something to do with the immigrant class of Mexicans he encounters. Hard to say.

    WHat happened recently is a very YOUNG mexican boy said something VERY crass to one of his female players (in Spanish). It was actually rather shocking. His comment was “All Mexicans are like that”.

  270. It could have something to do with the immigrant class of Mexicans he encounters. Hard to say.

    Sometimes you can take the person out of the third world but you cannot take the third world out of the person.

    I mentioned this the other day, I was friggen appalled at the Vero Beach Walmart to see such utter white, brown and black trash. I honestly wondered if this is what living in a third world country is like.

    And I’ve been to Lantau, Macau, the outskirts of Hong Kong and Mexico.

  271. Society norms change, I get that, but when my father was poor, as poor as poor can be (growing up), he would not have been allowed to leave the house with holes and stains in/on his shirt, unkempt hair, shorts that show an incredibly large gut, unshaven, and then add to that the filthy loud mouth swearing and the f-word to their kids to “shut the f up, you brat” and I mean a lot of that kind of thing. I decided I would pay twice as much to not be near these animals.

    My point is I do not equate poor with bad manners or filthiness. It’s a choice. Maybe a choice their parents made and it trickles down.

  272. Mare – I imagine long ago the poor were like this. The poor in England. And then came the era of pride. Just because you were poor didn’t mean you had to be poor of spirit/poor of mind. In advanced societies – everyone has accessibility to things which raise them up. They can learn to read/advance.

    I can only blame the socialists /communist/ progressives. IT serves their interest to have a disfunctional underclass. It’s someone they can point to – to say “SEE??? WE MUST DO SOMETHING TO LIFT THEM UP.” Have a functioning poor – who can cook and clean their house. Dress well. Speak and read properly. It undercuts their argument.

    My Father and Mother said often, “Cleanliness is next to Godliness.”

    They may have got that beaten into them from the nuns but it was a great lesson worthy of beatings.

    It’s one of first world society planks: An aesthetic for cleanliness and tidiness.
