POS Spring

So we’re 1 week (+/-) out from teh calendericacal spring and we have nothing but blue skies and butterflies in the forecast (hhe he heeeeeee).

We got enough snow overnight to be irritating enough to cause delays around the are. I checked out Mr. Weatherman and that punk says there’s at least two more weeks of cold weather – down into the teens; the robins and redwing blackbirds better have packed their electric underoos cuz baby it’s gonna be cold out for a little bit longer.

I can usually tell if spring has sprung by the annual “First to get mushed on the Highway” spring woodchuck fling… none observed yet.

Now back to our regularly scheduled workout and garden banter –

Later!

  1. Dennis Prager says exactly this quite often.

    Why was she calling you racist and sexist? What did you say?

    Tell her to do a little research or shut her pie hole.

    Well, she’s STEM, so she really doesn’t know much about history and politics. It’s not her strong suit. Math. Chemistry. She’s getting this bullshit from her (liberal) boyfriend. Who doesn’t really know much about it either, but his parents are very liberal.

    She said my conservationism can be explained by nothing else than my inherent racism and sexism.She can see no other reason. Plus, corporations.

    @@

    The entire thing was pretty silly.

    that’s nice, dear. Now go do some math.

  2. Heh, the nephews and nieces are all conservatives here. Working on the farm and being homeschooled will do that.

    Now the inlaws, that’s a different story. They live up in Southern Canada/Minnesota with pupster. Everything is rainbows up there, including the politics.

  3. Has she been hanging out with grandma? I’m sure she would be good for some memes.

  4. It’s her boyfriend. Of course, the two are so far from being independent, it’s pretty funny. If this continues, in a few years I won’t want to sully her with my “capitalist” money which was probably gotten off of the labor of the poor.

  5. J’ames, I haven’t brought that bomb out – that she is in effect in complete agreement with my mother. That’s playing really dirty pool and I’m saving that arrow in my quiver.

  6. Has the boyfriend had an argument with you yet?

  7. No. He’s always really nice.

  8. Make sure to wear your MAGA gear next time he’s around.

  9. Hotspur, my travel plans have changed a crap ton. I won’t be around here (I will one day but that will be a turnaround travel deal), not even over Easter. I kind of messed that one up.

  10. Moose has already been for a swim this morning.

    No. He’s always really nice.

    ——–
    But behind your back, he’s calling you a capitalist pig, a racist and a sexist.

    Which is better than saying it to your face.

    Kids are morons.

    You’re pretty patient if my kid said that to me I’d say GTFU and by the way, pay for your own college bullshit.

  12. Comment by leoncaruthers on March 13, 2018 8:53 am
    I’m planning to strongly encourage Possum to skip college unless something dramatic changes and either do trade school, military, or certifications. Or just find a man who did any of the those and make me healthy and sane grandkids.

    I think about this a lot. My youngest is a real smarty and has huge earning potential. My oldest is smart too but not STEM. However, my husband and I would prefer they have happy marriages with children rather than great careers. Both can be done, but several things have to align correctly.

  13. I kind of messed that one up.

    Booo!!! Oh well, I’ll drink an extra glass of chardonnay in your honor.

  14. STEM isn’t an excuse there. You have to be choose ignorance and feelings over reason, of which you are clearly capable. The leftist propaganda at schools is effective, but the overreach could wake her up.

    The BAMN people at UM in the 90’s unsold me on leftism forever.

  15. One of the not good traveling deals is visiting a dear friend who has a new home in Lake Havasu City. You fly into Las Vegas then drive 2 and 1/2 hours to her home. She could have bought anywhere, she does have another good friend there but the inconvenience to the airport is crazy and she travels ALL THE TIME.

    I’ll also be visiting a friend who has ended her intense round of chemo for breast cancer. She’s fun and I hope this son of a bitch (to quote Trump) cancer is gone forever!

    On the upside of traveling, I will be spending 6 weeks in Maui this summer. This is what happens when your sister (whom I’m very close to) and her husband buy a condo in Maui. 6 weeks out of the Florida summer heat will be fantastic!

  16. STEM isn’t an excuse there. You have to be choose ignorance and feelings over reason, of which you are clearly capable. Th

    She’s 20. I was liberal then too, and much more “liberal arts degree” than she.

    I just bought Jordan Peterson’s book. I’m going to give it to her to read. I think the underlying themes will address what ails her.

  17. She literally sits around with liberals (smoking pot) talking about this shit. I know that’s where this come from.

    I have time. I didn’t get angry. I chip away at pieces. That’s my strategy. Anger would only solidify her belief.

    I’d like her to have to think through the idea that I’m racist and somehow support big evil corporations.

    This actually makes me LOL. You’re a great mom and both you and your husband appear to be working your asses off to provide for 5 kids (I know most of them are out of the house now).

    It’s just a funny stance for her to take, I’m wondering if the boyfriend’s family has any money?

  19. Pot makes you stupid and malleable, that’s part of it.

    I’m working on Peterson’s book when I’ve got downtime with Possum. Kindle phone app is a big help for parenting.

  20. I was never liberal but then again when you have a mind like a donkey you don’t move off your position too often.

  21. It’s just a funny stance for her to take, I’m wondering if the boyfriend’s family has any money?

    They live in a nice area and I think they’re pretty comfortable, but not “rich”. They do mortgage brokering or something.

    Which sounds like evil folks trying to make money off of people just trying to buy a home.

  22. Housing should be a right.

  23. Did Mare just call Carin an ass?

  24. Housing IS a right. Marx told us so.
    So it is written so shall it be done.

  25. Comrades.

  26. Donatello is smarter than most college snowflakes. He at least knows horse shit when he sees it, and has the sense not to wallow thereupon.

  27. A few years ago when my grandson was about 16, I criticized something Obama said. I don’t remember what, but it certainly had nothing to do with the color of his skin, and my grandson said I was racist.

    They get this shit shoved down their throats in school.

    When my daughter was in about fifth grade (1978) she brought home a form for me to fill out to donate to the World Wildlife Fund. I had to explain to her why what her teacher was doing was wrong, and why I wouldn’t donate. She was devastated because all she could think of was how her friends would ridicule her.

    This is real stuff to young people. The public school system is a cesspool of teachers who were the bottom of the SAT pool, with a fucking liberal arts degree.

    Thank God mine grew up to think for themselves.

  28. And speaking of Jordan Peterson, he recently lectured at Queen’s College. The protesters started out disrupting the lecture, but then left the room and went outside where they persistently banged on the stained glass windows until they started breaking them. I have no idea where security was, but this went on for nearly half an hour.

    Dr. Peterson is a thoughtful intellectual, far from being a right winger, and yet they’ll do anything to stifle him. These fucking kids need to be expelled.

    Check out the lecture on Youtube.

  29. Breaking stained glass???? They should be expelled and then charged criminally. Period.

  30. What’s that old saying?
    If you’re not a liberal at twenty, you have no heart.
    If you’re still a liberal at forty, you have no brain.

    I think attributed to Churchill.

  31. On a happy note, here is a photo of my birthday present from some dear friends – the decanter on the left. The one on the right is from other dear friends from about 20 years ago. The cool thing is that the current gift was from people who hadn’t seen the former.

  32. I wasn’t a liberal at twenty. I worked for a living.

  33. What’s in them, HS? Pretty!

  34. Mount Gay Eclipse rum. My favorite.

  35. hbd hotntot
    i should send you a bottle of my latest hootch

  36. it’ll get your attention and then murder it

  37. Looks like the new decanter needs breaking in (decanting?). Way too full!

  38. i haven’t tried it actually – but it smells ok

  39. My brother in law is a fairly hardcore Libertarian, and my sister drifted that way based on him as well as dealing with our union-member whackjob leftwing cousin.

  40. ” If you don’t have anywhere to go, don’t go.”

    Dannel P Malloy

  41. One of the better-produced homestead vloggers I follow is in CT at the moment. Prices are absurd there so he always had to preface his “how much do I sell X for?” discussions with a disclaimer.

    He’s moving his whole family to PA in June.

  42. He’s selling a 10 acre farm in CT, if you’re interested.

  43. ” where they persistently banged on the stained glass windows until they started breaking them.”
    =========

    The woman who broke the stained glass was arrested. She was found to be carrying a garrotte.

  44. If I had a spare million I might be.

  45. She could only use the old line that I must be racist and sexist, and that’s why I think as I do. But I grew up in it, so it’s not my fault.

    And yet she grew up in your household, raised by you. So what does that make her?

  46. I’d think that real racism is something you’d pass down as an embedded attitude.

    But of course, that’s what she’s been told anyhow. That she’s racist without any conscious knowledge thereof, and that she can’t overcome it.

  47. …and my grandson said I was racist.

    They get this shit shoved down their throats in school.

    My dad said I was a racist for the same thing.

  48. Did I actually read that in USA Today??
    That was a decidedly sane article coming from them.

  49. My father once told me that all opposition to 0bama was coming from racism, because Chris Matthews told him that. I told him that was balderdash, if anything he was getting a free pass from a lot of people who didn’t want to say anything negative about a black man.

  50. Lovely, lovely gifts, Hotspur. Good friends. You must not be the jackass Pepe says you are in his secret emails.

  51. I’m glad I was a hardass when my kids were growing up. They knew saying stupid stuff was not ignored. In other words, if they said something stupid I’d say, “That’s stupid, stop speaking.” hahahaha
    We laugh with them today about the stuff I said and how they’ll use it with their kids.

    When I say, “If you guys ever did/said______________” they always say, “Mom, like we’d ever do/say that!” They are incensed that I would think they’d do or say it. Point, mom!

    “Suck it up!”

    “Don’t be an idiot!”

    “Knock it off!”

    “I love you, sweetie!”
    were used a lot in our house.

  52. I don’t think that is THE USA today.

    The US version: https://www.usatoday.com/
    This one: https://usa-today-news.com/

  53. My kids told me a bit ago that I use to say, “You may be idiots but you’re MY idiots!”

    They loved that one. Evidently, it made them feel special in their idiocy.

  54. Also, racism is only possible from white people. Keep that in mind.

  55. I never had a conversation about race with my kids. Why would I? You treat people nicely or you get your butt kicked (by me or them).

  56. My parents had to explain that black people needed to be referred to as “black” in spite of the fact that they were brown.

    Which still seems stupid to me, but that was before I knew that brown people were something else again.

  57. Ah… A different USA Today. That makes sense, then.

    As to racism, I was raised to never even think of race, and never had a racist thought. Until, that is, city politics came into play and I was bussed to an inner city school that was 85% or so black. Booker T Washington, the first school in Virginia to install metal detectors, I believe. In one of the worst neighborhoods in town.
    I grew up poor, but in an integrated Navy community. I had never before seen that kind of depravity, disrespect, outright thuggery.
    Yes, I developed racists tendencies. Imagine tossing three lambs into a pit of 25 wild lions.
    Thankfully, once I got out into the real world, I quickly reverted back to normal.

  58. Heh, mare.
    My favorite sayings always came from (step)Dad.

    Me: Do you know where my football is?
    Dad: If it was up your ass you’d know where it was!

    Me: *gets caught making an elaborate Fall Guy or CHiPs crash scene in the backyard using all my models, firecrackers, smoke bombs and Zippo lighter fluid.

    Dad: What the hell are you doing? If I catch you doing this again I’ll kick your ass up between your shoulder blades!

  59. Hahaghaaa, the stuff people say!

  60. Just came across the funniest video EVAH! Cy the Mascot does the Evolution of Dance

  61. Acquired taste.

  62. Dad: If it was up your ass you’d know where it was!

    LOL Maybe your dad and mine were brothers.

  63. Storm was a dud here. Eastern CT got slammed.

    Snowfall rates as high as 3.5 inches per hour.

  64. Glad you dodged that bullet, Scott.

  65. That video at Ace’s of The Cunt slipping on the stairs twice is hilarious to watch. I’ve looped it about ten times now.

    I like the part where she flings off her shoes and just expects some slave to pick them up for her.

    God she’s a cunt.

  66. Heh. Was he a retired Master Chief HS?
    I actually used that line on Mom once when I was about 10. I didn’t even think – it just popped out unexpectedly.

    Mom: Has anyone seen my purse?
    Chi: If it was up your ass you’d know where it was.

    Luckily, instead of beating me, she just laughed at me for being the fool that I am.

  67. I wish I knew how to embed a tweet here from my phone.

  69. I think he’s in search of a new one.

  70. I hear car in is looking to adopt…

  71. yep – carin should adopt 3PO as her new son

    he definitely rumba’s to his own beat

  73. if he fucks around with the 2A anymore he’s gonna go back on the shit list tho

  74. nice to see alice stopped by

  75. One thing I love about my new job are the tunnels. This campus consists of scattered buildings across a couple blocks. The buildings are connected ingeniously by employee-only portals.

    I can get to the main hospital or an ancillary building from a parking garage or another building almost two blocks away, and stay indoors and safe.

    One minute you’re in a glass and steel skywalk over the street, then you take a turn, follow a sign, and you’re suddenly in a 100 year-old building with creaky wooden floors and an antique staircase. Go down two flights of stairs, open the wooden door with the old brass knob, and you walk out into a massive underground concrete tunnel lined with huge and small pipes. Walk nearly to the end (avoid the puddles), take a left to the elevators. Go up one floor, and you enter a glitzy modern building lobby near the main hospital cafeteria.

    Or stay in the tunnel, keep going past the elevators, take a couple more turns and landings and get to the employee office building which in the above ground world is across the block and down the street from the main hospital.

    Navigating these tunnels is almost dreamlike, in how the passageways lead to wildly different corridors and other structures. I actually dreamed about them one night after using them for the first time, and when I woke up I sincerely doubted they were real for a few moments.

    I love it.

  77. Buenas trades, yards and easy chicks.

  78. I thought the hookup culture was bad enough.

    https://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2018/mar/11/how-amorality-thrives-on-college-campuses/

    Both Rocketboy and Mini-me are pretty conservative. I think it helped to send them to private school and to a small STEM college uncontaminated by feminist and queer studies majors. Rocketboy will occasionally ask for help in arguments with his liberal friends, though it was more anti-Bernie Sanders in 2016 than anything going on now. Now if I could only get him to register to vote.

    Most of the neflings are conservative, even the ones with liberal parents. Military service and owning a small business tends to do that. One nefling is a Berniebot, so I’m waiting for his reality check.

  79. There’s a tunnel connecting two of the buildings at work that doubles as a tornado shelter. No wooden floors or brass, though.

    Evul Black Rifle shipped today! I gotz a tracking number and everything. Pew Pew Pew!

    These chicks are anything but easy. I’m going to Mares town tomorrow, so what does she do? Yep. Leaves town.

  84. Shit. Troy has me beat.
    I have a Pepe original on the way in the mail this week, but no scary black rifle.
    Stabby stabby, but no Pew Pew for Chi…

  85. I’m really hoping the 2nd amendment stuff from Trump is just posturing. Just another issue republicans can campaign on. “I’ll preserve your rights !!11!!!! Trump won’t get a chance to sign a bill. ” Once the election is over, he can pass some good gun legislation.

    Right now, he’s got the Dems campaigning on:
    1. Take your guns
    2. Raise taxes
    3. Give illegal aliens citizenship and bring in more.

    Really don’t see any of those as winners.

  86. I was just going to hop on and ask where Lauraw has been.

  87. Don’t forget about “Christians are mentally ill” and “Russia, Russia, Russia!”
    2018 is shaping up to be a metaphorical slaughterhouse for Dems.

  88. Ford’s Dearborn campus had pipes and tunnels like that too. If you knew your way you could cross the entire complex indoors.

  89. Happy that Laura has a job that makes her happy.

  90. Roamy – Gaelic steak, potatoes with Irish soda bread

  91. The Democrat is going to win in the special House election in PA. The Republican is a mess of a candidate who looks like the zombie grandfather of the Democrat candidate. UGGHH!

  92. I’m just glad that Laura can get through the tunnels without her hump scraping the ceilings.

  93. Well, I never said that. But the free humpicure’s a nice bonus.

  94. Never heard of gaelic state.

  95. steak

  96. What are ‘beef aromatics’ from that recipe? Like bouillon?

  97. Thanks, Romacita. We’ll see how I like the job. So far the education part is fascinating.

  98. It has a heavy cream/tomato sauce. Incredibly rich and delicious!

  99. Does it always? I’m running across other recipes with no tomatoes but more closely resembling a mushroom sauce or a marsala (but with whisky).

  100. Herself’s is creamy and uses tomatoes. Never had it any other way. But, it’s something we only cook on the 17th of March each year.

  101. Found a couple more with just cream and booze. Apparently people just do whatever they want over in Ireland.

  102. Master Chief, you should stride into that kitchen on St. Patty’s day and just tell that woman that she is doing it wrong.

    Then if you would please come back here and give a detailed report on the resulting discussion.

  103. Hey! The last time I did something like that, the knot stayed on my head for 3 weeks!

  104. I just got home from my local sucky grocery store. Their packaged corned beef was ridiculously overpriced. I am NOT pay $25 for a three pound tough chunk of meat with a ½ oz packet of pickling spice.
    Looks like I’m hitting a local pub for my CB & cabbage fix this year, then I’ll clean up on the store stuff next Monday at the better grocery store when it’s on clearance.
    I might be a Moron but I ain’t stupid.

  105. I’m not much of a fan of CB&C.

  106. Heathen!

  107. I had to look up wtf beef aromatics were too.

    Lot of recipes with beef and aromatic in them and one about what aromatics are

    https://www.mnn.com/food/recipes/blogs/what-are-aromatics-in-cooking

  108. I am full of beef aromatics.

  109. So is Mare

    https://is.gd/txjpDG

  110. Amused that the same people who say we’re spending too much on a border wall are defending the $77B price tag for high-speed rail.

  111. I know what aromatics are, in cooking. They can be a lot of different things, used as a flavor base. I’ve never seen ‘beef aromatics’ specifically listed in a recipe, before today’s recipe link from MCPO.

  112. The wafting aroma of my manliness should be enough beef aromatics for any woman!

  114. Scott – Please get help with your bath salts addiction

  115. That was news to me Laura. After reading the article it made sense. When I think of aromatics I attach the word cyclic to aromatic as a throwback to my O-Chem days

    This is bullshit

    You may have just answered your own question there, brother.

  119. She had epiglottitis or infundibulitis or some sort of -itis

  120. He’s making her chicken soup wearing only a “Kiss The Cook” apron, black socks and Birkenstock sandals

  121. Last known sit rep had her waiving off the rendevous due to illness (bronchitis, cough, cough)

  122. While humming “Oh my darling Clementine”

  123. Near a cavern, across from a canyon,
    Excavating for a mine,
    Lived a miner, forty-niner
    And his daughter Clementine

    Oh my Darling, Oh my Darling,
    Oh my Darling Clementine.
    You are lost and derp forever,
    Dreadful sorry, Clementine.

    Light she was and like a fairy,
    And her shoes were number nine
    Herring boxes without topses
    Sandals were for Clementine.

  126. Office opens at noon tomorrow. The snow is supposed to last until tomorrow night, 8 o’clock. Kids have no school which is good because my 8th grader was ranting about “Walk Out Wednesday”. One of his friends got sent to the office for saying the second amendment was important and this was all a bunch of crap (or words to that effect).

  127. “During National Student Walkout Day, on March 14, our plan is to run a regular school day. We will provide a safe space inside the school building, between 10:00am and 10:17am, for students who request an opportunity to participate. The focus for student participants will be on issues related to school safety. Please note that school rules and student safety protocols remain in place. Student participants are responsible for any missed work.”

  128. So far the NFL free agency news is mostly about Patriots players leaving for greener ($$$) pastures. Not a lot of news about free agent acquisitions …. hmmm.

  131. Jimbro – Could the Eagles beating them with full effort by both teams be a possibility?

  132. I really want to slap Jimbro after clicking that link. I am sure I’m not alone here.

  133. LMAO at Jimbro. Goes back to Facedouche where I have Westcoast late night friends

  134. Got the Safeway Flyer today. Corned Beef brisket is $1.99/lb.
    Gonna get some, cabbage, onion, and red potatoes, and throw the whole lot in the crock-pot…

  135. TIL that the “The preceding was a work of fiction, any similarity to a living person…” disclaimer included in any present-day film is because MGM had the pants sued off of them by the Russian prince who killed Rasputin. Prince Felix didn’t mind them making him a murderer in the movie “Rasputin and the Empress”, he minded the character based on his wife being seduced by Rasputin. They won a lawsuit in 1932 for invasion of privacy and libel to the tune of 25,000 pounds, which I figure is at least $1.5 million in today’s dollars.

    Mini-me saw “Anastasia” on Broadway today, and I fell down the rabbit-hole on Wikipedia.

    Also, I keep wanting to spell Anastasia as Anesthesia.

  136. I’m thinking about making Irish Soda Bread. It was my dealio pre-diabeetus

  137. LOL Jimbro, my dad used to sing that song.

  138. At least you don’t think Anastasia is a Disney film

  139. Tomorrow is shaping up to be a nice day. Mid 40’s and sunny, I pick up some decent money that’s owed, doggie gets his vet visit. Thursday should be even better – mid 50’s and sunny, even more money my way, lunch with an old highschool buddy, and my blade should be here waiting in the mailbox.
    With any luck, somewhere in there, I’ll get to hit the gun shop/range and try out a few choices. Then decide that I want the CZ P10C…

  140. Black dude at work wants us to go to MD and hang with his family. He avoids Baltimore family: Crime. I want to go to Kauai. He wants us to meet his family and go fishing. For some reason, black guys at work think of Dan as a father figure.

  141. Fishing and crabbing in Maryland is something special to be experienced and hard to pass up. But missing Kauai? Your black friend would have to be Buddy Guy or Halle Berry for me to miss that.

  142. What happened with Sean’s date?

    This is bullshit.

    Okay, so…

    The Good: We went out and had tacos. She has bronchitis, so I was actually trying to get her to postpone, but she insisted on coming out. I take that as a good sign. And she doesn’t seem averse to doing it again.

    The Bad: Again, she has bronchitis. And she got stuck in traffic on the way. And it was raining. So I don’t think she had the most wonderful, magical time a gal can have. I decided that the time was definitely not right to profess my undying love.

    Giving this one a B minus.

  144. I have never had corned beef or Irish soda bread. My mother is descended from Kelly and Carroll stock, but AFAIK, she never ate it, either.

  145. She came on the date because she doesn’t want you to think that she isn’t interested in you. Trust me on this – a girl can sense when a fella is shy.

    I certainly didn’t want to see the movie that Mr. TiFW wanted to see on our first date, but I was sure there wouldn’t be a second “ask”.

    Ended up going on the date, but to this day have never seen the movie (there was an ice “storm”, which in Texas means 1/4″ of the really slick stuff).

    We’ve been married 37 1/2 years now….

  146. I mean, think about it:

    1) She had bronchitis;
    2) She slogged through traffic;
    3) It was raining;

    and she STILL insisted on keeping the date.

    She. Is. Interested.

    The “wonderful, magical time” a girl has on a date has much more to do with the guy she is with and how much fun she has than anything else.

    If you guys laughed and felt comfortable with each other, that’s what is important.

    Everything else is the “meet cute/first date” story you can tell at the wedding.

  147. black guys at work think of Dan as a father figure.

    I thought that was messican cashiers and sample girls?

  148. Leon?

  149. Thank you, TiFW.

  150. {{{hugs}}}

  151. Derp my way
    And a thousand violins begin to play
    Or it might be the sound of your hello
    That music I hear
    I get misty the moment you’re near
