Crop Duster’s Local 537

Saturday morning after the all you can eat taco bar…the opposite of crop dusting.

I have a dream that one day my dogs will do more than sleep, eat and poop.

It’s a little early for an art post but that’s whats on the menu. This is from a lady who has made some pop art that I like. Ladies and gentlemen, I give you Tara McPherson (“the crown princess of poster art”):

Safe to say she has a style that runs through her work.

  12. My wife watched this and is finally convinced that we need one.

    Also I’m done eating ice cream I think.

  13. I don’t think I’m sufficiently outraged about Bill Cosby.

    You guys will keep my secret right?

  14. Holy crap!

    I just heard and saw a tree fall down behind a neighbors house, first time I’ve ever seen it happen without any human intervention or wind. It’s hung up on some other trees and threatening two back yards. It is not windy or anything, I guess it just decided “today is the day”.

  15. I should really get around to getting that chainsaw. Nothing endangers the house anymore, but there are multiple existential threats to the pasture fence.

  16. Notice how they make you become a citizen to keep the free shit flowing? More votes for Democrats.

  17. Worky worky. I got a giant oil painting that needs to be packed.
    Good thing I don’t give a crap about any of the 1:00 games.

  18. ttp://www.sun-sentinel.com/us-cuba-welfare-benefits/sfl-us-cuba-welfare-benefits-part-2-htmlstory.html

    Because fuck the american taxpayer.

  19. So – today I was SUPPOSED to have the day off. I was going to have a nice run (the weather is beautiful) and then have dinner at a friends house.

    Instead I’m working all fucking day and Pat’s taking the kids to the Lion’s game.

    fml

  20. Taxes can’t possibly pay for everything, so why do they pay for anything? Drop the charade and eliminate them and just print it all!

    *buys lots of precious metals*

  21. Leon we’ve got other people’s shit to pay for. Perhaps you should go to work today.

  22. What kinds of fabric softener do you have?

  23. IT’s ON THE MENU.

  24. I need gluten free detergent.

    Will that be a problem?

  25. “Juan Fleites, who came when he was 62 and never worked in the U.S., is grateful for the help. Now a U.S. citizen, he lives in a government-subsidized apartment and receives SSI and food stamps, saving enough to visit Cuba every two to three months.’

    Chop chop Car in, Juan has another vacation coming up.

  26. Leon we’ve got other people’s shit to pay for. Perhaps you should go to work today.

    Has to wait until sundown. Religious obligations and so forth. Most of the day will be labor for which no one would pay me, if that helps.

  27. What was it that imam said? If you leave meat out to be taken, don’t be surprised by stray cats? Something like that?

  28. We’re working for Juan.

  29. I hope peopel tip me well. Juan can’t live on me making 10%.

    Oh who am a kidding? Obama will tax me on whatever he says I make regardless of what people give me.

    Holy crap!

    I just heard and saw a tree fall down
    =========

    Hate falling trees. One time I was helping a friend pack supplies into the wilderness. We were riding through an old burn when the wind picked up. Trees were crashing down everywhere, big trees. Not a fun time.

  31. That last pic looks like a heartless bitch.

    Try the veal and don’t forget to tip your waitresses…

  32. If drinking a beer at 10am on a Sunday morning after an embarrassing defeat in softball is wrong, I don’t wanta be right…

    Now where’s that chainsaw…..

    You’re banned from the internets for the rest of the day.

  34. A good guy with a gun shot and killed a bad guy with a gun, in a Waterbury cafe last night. No charges filed….yet.

    If the gun wasn’t pointed at him, he broke the law.

  35. Of course, headline is simply “1 shot in robbery attempt.”

    I hate the fucking media…

  36. I got out of bed for this?

  37. Gun Kills Man in Cafe.

  38. No doubt the dead man had just purchased his college textbooks and was working on songs for his album.

  39. And some skittles. Don’t forget the skittles.

  40. Ice tea!

  41. No, sister, I don’t know, and really, really don’t give a fuck, what happened to the other box of silverware that mom probably gave to Jaime years ago.

  42. You’re banned from the internets for the rest of the day.

    You’re not my real mom!

  43. You’re not my real mom!

    A hack surgeon and a Los Angeles court disagree.

  44. I’m headed out to PetSmart to get Benny’s food. Anyone need anything while I’m out?

    Cyn, new collar?

  45. Pick meh up a squatty. I hear good things, like it makes rainbow sherbet fly out of your ass.

  46. I’ll see if they carry them at Kohl’s yet.

  47. I’m headed out to PetSmart to get Benny’s food. Anyone need anything while I’m out?
    —————————————–
    Gasoline, cocaine, a tank top, swim fins, absinthe, and a flawless diamond.

  48. A flawless ruby is better. +10 Fite damage or +25% resistance to fire attacks.

  49. A quart of synthetic motor oil (any grade), 2 non-fiction hard back novels (any topic), a 18″ choke chain, 1 tub “I can’t believe it’s not butter”, a pair of flip flops, charcoal, lighter fluid, french salad dressing, italian salad dressing, ranch (american) salad dressing, lettuce, a furnace filter, turkey kabobs, plastic flatware, 2 bundles of firewood, a set of 18″ all-season tires, and a squeaky toy.

  50. Could you pick me up one of those new Lockheed-Martin F35’s? I’ll pay you back later.

  51. Non-fiction novels!?

    Fuck it, I’m just getting dog food.

  52. Time to teach Elliot a lesson.

    At Petco. Don’t worry.

  53. The salmon smokes.

  54. Chilling with NetFlix. Watching “Burying the Ex”.

  55. Decent flick. Kudos to Ashley Greene for being willing to look hideous for most of the movie.

  56. Ha! Lists, one of my favorites!

  57. Pupster knows lists.

  58. Best ribs ever in the PBC. I cut the racks in half to get more smoke/heat at the top of the smoker. When I make a half chicken the legs are down low and don’t seem to cook as much as I’d like while the breast, which is higher, is perfectly done.

  59. Good evening, people who have seasons.

  60. Evening.

  61. Watching Obama lie on 60 minutes. Fun!

  62. this guy has some good deadpan humor going on in this video –
    i recommend watching all 11 minutes –

    http://bit.ly/1PoJunv

    did i mention it’s about islam and stuff

  63. other stuff to while away the hours with –

    buck sexton’s Battle of Lepanto:

  64. oopps didn’t know sound cloud would do that

  65. Obama=douche squared

  66. Hey Scott, are you near Sutton, Mass.? How much to ship a 1,700 pound lathe to Albuquerque?

  67. Comment by MJ on October 11, 2015 7:55 pm
    Obama=douche squared

    ——-

    Yes.

  68. I read douche-squared as douche-squirrel

  69. damn raccoons are going nuts around here this year – i’ve relocated 5 to property 30 plus minutes away. i just caught another one 15 minutes ago –
    it’s a big bastard, and it’s not happy.
    these masked criminals have been tearing my place up all summer.

    i’m getting tried of transporting these stinky, growling, spitting, ingrates….

    *wonder if i can pull off wearing a coon-skin cap a la Dan’l Boone*

  70. Does your squirrel have that…not so fresh feeling?

  71. One of the best things at work is when I treat a sick piggie and it gets better. Today I had a haemophilus piggie get better.

  72. When I lived in Worcester I used to hike at Purgatory Chasm in Sutton, MA.

    http://www.mass.gov/eea/agencies/dcr/massparks/region-central/purgatory-chasm-state-reservation.html

    Not a very long hike but cool rock formations.

  73. Good evening, people who have seasons.

    Ugh, it’s so freaking hot.

  74. Does your squirrel have that…not so fresh feeling?

    Yeah, and I could only manage to peel a little bit of it off my tire.

  75. I’ve got no way of moving something that heavy. The expensive part will be getting it on and off a truck. The freight portion would probably be under $1000.

  76. http://is.gd/AKK0YQ

  77. Pupster, what the heck was that in your “Morning” gif?

  78. I been waitin’ all day for Sunday Night

  79. Off isn’t a problem, I’d have it sent to a machinery moving company in ABQ. Then I’d pay them to deliver to me. Looking at a lathe that says “local pickup” I’d have to find a machine rigger there to put it on a pallet, and then load it on a truck. I don’t know if there is any special prep necessary with a lathe. With a mill, there is a bracket that you bolt to the spindle and the table to support it during transport.

  80. The riggers I’ve worked with are at least an hour away.
    There must be some in and around Worcester (pronounced Wuhster).

  81. A bug I guess.

    Also, cats don’t count: http://is.gd/jhWgpi

  82. I screwed that up, Wuhsta is more accurate.

  83. Demolition experts rarely panic.

  84. It creeped me TF out.

    Uh oh

  86. Well done, Jewstin!!

  87. Obama is a national embarrassment.

    The fricken world is teetering and this narcissistic jackass is mostly concerned about getting some deal in Paris about climate change???????

    You, Sir, are an asshole reminiscent of the assholes traded vigorously between large, non discriminating, rather large for their size, incarcerated for life, prisoners.

  88. I H8 Crop Dusters. Cochinos. I had to leave my area and chillax in Grocery because of a nasty ass crop dusting POS. I hope he shit his pants!

  89. I bet TFG crop dusts.

  90. You, Sir, are an asshole reminiscent of the assholes traded vigorously between large, non discriminating, rather large for their size, incarcerated for life, prisoners.

    Holy shit that’s a keeper right there.

  91. Obama is a national embarrassment.

    We would have to have an national sense of shame anymore for that to be true.

  92. *puts mare’s asshole comment up on the fridge*

  93. Evening Hostages.

    A new entry for Mare’s Musings?

  94. My witloof chicory plants look really good. In a couple-four weeks, it will be time to pull them up and prepare them for producing belgian endives later in Winter.

    This will be my first time forcing a root. It’s terribly exciting

  95. Pepe, my insurance provider will only insure stuff that I pack. If you can find insurance, I can probably save you some money on the freight portion.

  96. I read plants as pants.

    Still exciting IMHO.

  97. I thought someone was crop dusting at the gem and mineral show, but it was the wind coming from the sewage treatment plant.

  98. You know, “witloof chicory” is fun to say.

  99. The only reason I don’t go insane over stupid shit that Eli and the Giants have done this season is that I know it’s making someone I despise even more insane.

  100. LauraW,
    I have no idea WTF you are talking about, but:

    “Witloof Chicory (Belgian Endive)
    Cichorium intybus L. var. folosum

    Last revised February 10, 2010

    (See also file on Radicchio)

    The terms “chicory” and “endive” are frequently interchanged because the “forced” product of Witloof chicory has been erroneously named French or Belgian endive. This information deals with the production of the forced Witloof chicory for chicons (4-6 inch, spindle-shaped heads or buds). Other synonyms are White Endive and Dutch chicory.

    Another type of chicory, whose dried roots are used as a coffee substitute, is Magdeburgh or Italian Dandelion. Tops may also be used in cooking like spinach. The field production phase of both these types may be handled similarly.

    Recently, chicory root is being considered as a natural source of fructose oligosaccharide, a zero-calorie sweetener. Washington State University information indicates that the Pacific northwest regions west of the Cascade Mountains may be ideally suited for its production.”

    Whatever the hell that means.

    You are a strange lady, and I love ya, and Scott, too(NTTAWWT)…

  101. No worries. They have a 7 point lead in the 2nd half. #itsinthebag

  102. The nice thing about WW3 will be all the bullshit that gets thrown on the back burner because everything’s already on fire.

  103. Chicory and dandelion will both interfere with conception, as will parsley, and hibiscus can cause uterine contractions and thus miscarriage.

    We didn’t learn these the hard way, thankfully, but we learned them on the way to being parents.

  104. Have you knocked her up again, Leon? If not, why not?

  105. Because newborns are needy creatures and childbirth is traumatic on the ladybits.

  106. Leon is alluding to the Mrs. yelling;
    “Don’t touch me!”

  107. By needy I assume you mean fucking expensive.

  108. Actually she really wants to be touched but the baby needs a lot of attention and she’s still healing. Li’l Possum hasn’t been particularly expensive other than the daycare we’re discontinuing. Breastfeeding is pretty cheap.

  109. Elliot is mad at me because I won’t let him chew on the computer chair. Got a spray of water for that, now he’s moping.

  110. Leon,
    Are you going to be putting any pictures of the little-one up?
    Or, are you afraid of *someone* putting-on the astronaut diapers, driving cross country, and stealing the child(Raising Arizona)?
    I’m not naming any names, here…

  111. Car in only has to go in-state.

    Perhaps I’ve said too much…

  112. Jay!
    I said:
    NO NAMES!

  113. We’ll just have her manager keep giving her fake doubles. That’ll keep the possum safe in her bucket.

  114. She still hasn’t come down to visit us.

    And there is a pic on PoL right now, Chris. It’s a few weeks old I think.

  115. Elliott gets some knowledge.

  116. Elliot is mad at me because I won’t let him chew on the computer chair. Got a spray of water for that, now he’s moping.

    That guy who used to hang out here? I wondered what he was up to these days. Tell him I said hello.

  117. Creepy, he’s hanging out under my desk.

  118. Jay has achieved alpha status!

  119. Some Alpha, can’t even get him to go to the bathroom outside all the time.

  120. Try these to get him to go outside, Jay:
    http://www.amazon.com/Stewart-Freeze-Dried-Treats-Liver/dp/B0002DGRSY/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1444618403&sr=8-1&keywords=dog+freeze+dried+liver

    Only use these for outside business. He’ll be cured in less than a week and if you do it right, he’ll learn to do business for you on command (one of the best trainer tips I ever got).

  121. Nobody taught him when he was younger.

    He’ll get it.

  122. Hmm, interesting, thanks!

  123. Trainer thinks he’s had instruction before, he’s already good at recognizing his name, sit, and come.

  124. Make Pips!

    * Ruby pees *

  125. Like any young’un, he’s testing you, Jay.

  126. Show me a pee-pee. Good pee-pee! (say this WHILE he pees)
    Show me a poo-pee. Good poo-pee! (say this WHILE he poops)
    Treat him and say Good pee-pee!
    Treat him and say Good poo-pee!

    Done.

    Sooooo very helpful when you’re in a hurry.

  127. *poop blog*

  128. That stuff is super important when you get a puppy in January.

  129. Dammit, Cyn, I pooped and poeed.

  130. *gives you a liver treat*

  131. gross

  132. Evening, jackwagons.

  133. Sup, CA

  134. Um, why is SF winning?

  135. You have another date, Alex?

  136. Apparently I need to brush up on my two-step.

  137. Cyn, I had a quick drink-date on Friday. We’ve got another date planned next Saturday.

  138. Two-stepping is like bowling – you always do better after you’ve had a few.

  139. Wow

  140. Pretty much. I don’t do it much, but apparently a bunch of girls at the catholic adults meeting go out to the local country bar all the time, and one was complaining about not having any guys to dance with.

  141. Which country bar?

  142. Cowboys

  143. I miss drinking and dancing there. And banging my really hot bartender girlfriend that worked there.

  144. I bet those gals would be more than happy to help you brush up.

  145. How crazy was she?

  146. Did anybody break it to anybody else that the name of the new superhero they created is also an incredibly nasty sex act today?

  147. Hahaha. Sean FTW

  148. I didn’t crop dust anyone today.

  149. Did anybody break it to anybody else that the name of the new superhero they created is also an incredibly nasty sex act today

    http://somethingpositive.net/sp07222015.shtml

  150. How crazy was she?
    ———-

    She date me.

  151. Work is keeping lil-possum safe. I don’t have time to go and steal a baby.

    On my days off I’m too busying cleaning the kitchen and doing laundry and driving kids to soccer.

  152. I don’t know how to say leather in Espanol. Leather Bear is awesome!

  153. Watching Modern Family in syndication and Claire kept smelling baby Joe. It was pretty awesome.

  154. Everything is awesome!

  155. “Juan Fleites, who came when he was 62 and never worked in the U.S., is grateful for the help. Now a U.S. citizen, he lives in a government-subsidized apartment and receives SSI and food stamps, saving enough to visit Cuba every two to three months.’

    I’ve told you about the woman, who came from Armenia, that I worked with. When I first met her, her and her husband had come to the US a couple of years prior and they were living in subsidized senior housing and both signed up for Medicaid and Social Security.

    Her husband was retired – flew planes for Iran..never worked a day in the US. She only worked here in the US for less than two years. Now tell me how they get all the bennies from SS and now Medicare, when he never paid a dime into the system and her less than two years.

    She flies back here to MO to visit family on occasion. When asked how she can afford the plane fair……….Social Security.

  156. Oh, and they were getting those ‘benefits’ BEFORE they became citizens.

  157. I need to go on SS and SSDI.

    I’m sick of working for a living.

  158. FSA: not just citizens any more. Meh. LiFB

  159. New place in Lapper. I want to go.

    http://www.tiltedaxis.com

  160. I need to go on SS and SSDI.

    I’m sick of working for a living.

    You’d never pass the privilege check.

  161. We had thousands of tourists here for Balloon Fiesta. THOUSANDS. FYI Brazilians don’t like Mexicans. They REALLY H8 being mistaken for them. FYI Don’t say “No hablo espanol” to a Brazilian unless you’ve established a rapport with them.

  162. I’ve met people from all over the world, but never anybody from Brazil.

  163. Oh, shoulda mentioned that lady I worked with moved out to CA to be near her son and grandkids. Her checks are bigger out there.

  164. My grandmother and in-laws were never offered welfare. They were told to learn the language and get a job…cuz they white.

    But this was right before Kennedy rewrote the immigration bill.

  165. I went to visit beasnette today and took her some things. The girl finished a half marathon a couple of weeks ago.

    When you are fiddy and fluffy, never ever stand next to a tall, willowy, girl who trains for half marathons.

  166. Sean, a bunch of the special shape balloons are from Brazil and crewed/piloted by Brazilians. In 2014, Sam’s Club recognized Sam’s Club memberships from everywhere. Our dumbass front end manager didn’t know. I had a rough retail day. Had to translate English to Dumbass most of the day.

  167. I’m 50+ and fluffy and can’t believe how small I am compared to PoW/Sam’s.

  168. Heh, I’m smaller than PoW but standing next to beasnette, I look and feel like a heffer. She says she hasn’t lost any weight; she’s just all muscle. She has a six pack for crap’s sake.

  169. NepLex’s widow is Brazilian.

  170. I took her a couple of winter coats that we ordered off the internets for her birfday. One was from Abercrombie, the other Lands End. Took her two hours to make up her mind which one she wanted to keep. I stayed out of it because I spent all day at the stores the day before and was sick to death of coats (for myself).

    Told her I was beyond tired of shopping and was at the point of thinking she should keep them both. She finally went with LandsEnd because the owner of Abercrombie is a turd and exploiter of young people. WoOT!

  171. I need to go on SS and SSDI.

    I’m sick of working for a living.

    Cripes, for for four years now I have been eligible for some sort of gubmint cheese and have refused to designate myself as someone who does that. Who’s the fool here?

  172. Who’s the fool here?

    Srsly.

    Working at Wallyworld, there were so many young women getting knocked up and shacking up with their boyfriends they decided not to marry because Medicaid, EBT, WIC, subsidized housing, EITC.

    You really do start feeling the chump.

  173. Lippy, get the cheese. At least you’re a citizen. We like you. I’d rather have my $$ going to you than anyone else.

  174. She has a six pack for crap’s sake.

    Is it veiny? I’m asking for a friend.

  175. Hello! Been in Denver for a few days but have been buried under a mass of studying and flying (simulators).

    Really an old dog to be learning a new trick.

    I’ll get through it. COAlex, and Alice I’m here until about 12 nov.

    Not sure how many other hostages are in the Denver area.

    I have two days off Ina couple of days. I’ll be more engaged then.

    Goodnight.

  176. Oso, as I just had to lift my leg with my hands to put it up on an ottoman (cardboard box with a towel on it), I’ll consider it.

    I need to go to the Social Security office to change my name anyway, so I’ll look into it.

    Muah!

  177. Eliminate the ninnies and the twits
    Put the derp on erase
    Rearrange a face
    We always liked Picasso anyway

  178. >>I’ve met people from all over the world, but never anybody from Brazil.

    Brazilians are the coolest, most warm and fun people.

  179. Be clear. Are they cool, or are they warm? Sorry, it was my turn to exasperate you.
