MMM 321: the perimeter

If I walk the edges of the giant rectangle that is my new yard — even cutting the corners to avoid brambles and lightly wooded areas, it’s a little over a half mile around.  That means if I wake up, go out and do chores, then walk the edges to check on things, I’ve got a half mile walk, and I didn’t even have to leave home to do it.  Do that 2-3 more times a day, and you’re starting to talk about a decent amount of exercise, plus the security of looking at all of that throughout the day, keeping an eye on potential problems or developments.  Going to try and make that part of the new routine.

Must be a clothing shoot.  Still nice.

She looks like someone who’s name I’d know if I watched TV.

That little window seems entirely meant to distract.

Another clothing shoot, I suspect.

Are leg warmers and high cut shorts a thing again?  Because dammit I missed the 80s.  And it looks like we’re doing them over again with better hair.  The very definition of Making America Great Again, right there:  80’s with better hair.

Not sure how I feel about this “thigh-high socks stitched straight to the shorts” look.  I think I dislike it.

  1. the first dude has arms like moochele

  2. “Going to try and make that part of the new routine.”

    you’ll need a new uniform for that –

  3. we’ll design it for you

  4. The first “lady” has arms disproportionate to her body.

  5. Every libtard right now:

    If you really think about it President Obama is actually responsible for ending the Korean War and North Korea promising to give up their nuclear weapons. You just have to really think about it.

  6. i heard on the radio recently some colorado(?) bounty hunters were in trouble for fucking some guy up in his house with the kids watching over a minor unpaid ticket of some kind –

    i’m not cool with the bounty hunter thing

  7. the libs have been slow out of the blocks on the nork thing

  8. I’ll give more credit to Dennis Rodman than Bronco Bama.

  9. Obviously aerating her cleavage?

  10. It’s a lot of effort to coordinate lies. That’s why Soros pays good people to do it, right Brock?

  11. you’ll need a new uniform for that –

    The Left has recommended that I get something from Hugo Boss.

  12. What’s hilarious? The Korean diplomats say, without, hedging, that Trump was responsible for the talks. Period. Although, Trump, himself, has given credit to China also.

  13. The Korean diplomats say, without, hedging, that Trump was responsible for the talks.

    The Left will suddenly discover a worthy disdain for the opinions of dirty foreigners who don’t know anything about the Real World.

  14. I could get a half mile around my property pretty easily, but I’d need to make a path.

  15. The CDC says it takes a tick 36 hours or more to transmit Lyme disease.

    Stupid tick only had 12 hours.

    I win.

  16. the libs have been slow out of the blocks on the nork thing

    Well, this is because they generally are ill informed to begin with, and their handlers have been slow to develop a narrative that is plausible and they can understand.

    Basically, you know … Obama laid the foundation (that one is easy to repeat) and it was the UN, South Korea, and China that really made this happen.

    That’s what my sister told me.

  17. You’re gonna need a path anyway, to harvest the beer trees.

  18. We’re going to plant weed if it becomes legal. Perhaps I can turn a profit when E has her friends over?

  19. Wow, a pot farm, and a mushroom farm. Who’s gonna raise poppies for heroin?

  20. Heroin is bad, J’ames.

  21. Pat bought me a new weedwacker, and it’s got some super strong string stuff. I’m going to finish up this cup of joe and go try it out.

    I hope I don’t lose a limb. If I’m not back in a few hours, call 911.

  22. This – I believe we’ve talked about it. This is someone I used to work with (she moved to Vegas). She’s in a relationship – been dating him for years, but doesn’t want kids:

    26 is a weird age. When did I start caring about health insurance and 401ks? But yet….still want to drink and party and make new friends every chance I get?

  23. I Learned More at McDonald’s Than at College

    True story.

  24. I used to mow a path around my yard but gave up after two things happened. The boys never walked around the edges or played out there and I got my lawn tractor stuck in a ditch formed by the seasonal runoff. That comedic act was only Part I. In an attempt to free the mower I got my Kubota tractor stuck in the mud. Scott’s advice at the time, which is still good advice, was to get a come along. The only problem being no trees around to tie off to because I had figuratively shot my wad by getting the big tractor stuck. If I had a come along I could have parked it on dry, level ground and put the stabilizers down and then used the come along to free the mower. Perhaps I will begin mowing the path again given my boy’s interest in conducting airsoft battles in the yard and the local tick population.

  25. I no longer have an optimal environment for mushrooms unless I build a house for them. The wooded area is too light and I don’t have a creek or pond.

    And weed interests me very little.

  26. you have a parcel of land that isn’t being used, mr mushroom

  27. How big of a house would a mushroom need? Bedroom, bathroom, kitchen and it’s all good.

  28. And weed interests me very little.

    That’s because Possum is too young to provide you with a steady source of customers.

  29. w big of a house would a mushroom need? Bedroom, bathroom, kitchen and it’s all good.

    I raffed.

  30. he’s going to need the weed for it’s calming effects, when possum gets to Erin’s age.

    She’s gonna test daddy’s patience

  31. xactly.

  32. Hrmph. Wish I had space enough to get into growing. I figure it’ll be legal in a few years, might be a decent income stream…

    Funny the things you make your peace with.

  33. I could get a half mile around my property pretty easily, but I’d need to make a path.

    One of the advantages of buying ten cleared acres. My line of sight is only blocked by my own buildings. Going to get some cameras to fix that.

  34. Make sure to put up some guard towers.

  35. Hrmph. Wish I had space enough to get into growing. I figure it’ll be legal in a few years, might be a decent income stream…

    If it ever went full-blown legal, there’d be very little money in it. It serves corporate interests to keep it limited so they can use the regulatory capture of the “medical” fig leaf to make sure only they can legally grow it. I don’t think there’s ever going to be a good opportunity to be a market gardener for weed.

  36. This – I believe we’ve talked about it. This is someone I used to work with (she moved to Vegas). She’s in a relationship – been dating him for years, but doesn’t want kids:

    Honestly, she sounds self-absorbed.

  37. Make sure to put up some guard towers.

    I am seriously considering gargoyles at the corners.


  38. you have a parcel of land that isn’t being used, mr mushroom

    It’s a 10 acre wheat farm at the moment, but I should go check the woods and wetlands for wild ones pretty soon. I need to talk to the neighbors anyhow.

  39. Gargoyles would be awesome. Make one look like a possum.

  40. Why is everyone getting pissy about the white house correspondents dinner? It’s a roast, right?

  41. There’s a difference between friendly mocking and vicious mean-girl attacks.

  42. Having watched Don Rickles at a roast, I’m not sure where you would draw that line.

    Also, the William Shatner and George Takei roasts got pretty personal.

  43. @ BC…..if you have a standard sized closet you can grow two – four plants. Four oz per plant. 28 grams per Oz. street value (if cured properly and of good strain) 20 per gram…Costs about 200-250 per grow for food, water, electric.

    I think after legalization there will be boutique farms / shops. The process for identifying medicinal strains is still in its infancy. Some strains are better for anxiety, some strains the opposite. Some strains are good for pain relief, some strains are good for producing a appetite and relieving nausea…..probably end up being multiple booths at the farmers markets…or craft beer style places..

  44. My roommate had a “boutique farm” in his closet in college.

  45. re: wcd – bring it. sanders is smarter and thicker skinned than all the turds on the left combined.
    it makes for great historic analysis/comparison(s).
    her brain power is far sexier than anything dbags like whatsher face wolf can ever physically match – they know it and they act out accordingly.

  46. fuck ’em

  47. *insert hot-n-tot word*

  48. one of the parents at bball is a licensed grower.
    i talked to the mom briefly about how to get the ball rolling.
    i’ve got a number of acres that need to start paying their way; my thought is to lease it for weed growing

  49. It’s worth asking around, barley might pay better.

  50. Hops farming makes mucho bank these days, but you need to add infrastructure.

  51. hmm, malting and hops

  52. Stupid weed wacker.

  53. How many toes are left, Car in? Can you still kip pull ups?

  54. “Funny the things you make your peace with.”

    you said it brother –

    i’m all for legalizing everything and let the chips fall where they may. i didn’t think that way years ago.

    i think most of the falling chips will be lefty dumbasses –
    let em live by the sword
    personal responsibility will be a harsh mistress

    we’ll save untold billions and get gov agencies out of our lives; win-win

  55. there are some hops around –
    i could probably do that.

    the growing rope things may be a little bit of a challenge

    Also, the William Shatner and George Takei roasts got pretty personal.

    If Don Rickles is the comedian, you know what you’re getting. This wasn’t supposed to be a roast, it was supposed to be a dinner with entertainment.

    Also, the WHCD has been doing this for years, and getting worse. IIRC, Obama laid into Trump years ago, getting personal and vicious. Not to mention the attacks on Bush and other Republicans that have become staples of the event.

  57. Yeah, my closets are full. With, like, actual stuff. (This isn’t a complaint. I’m enjoying the smaller footprint, it’s more tolerable given my sporadic housekeeping. Besides, it’s all mine!)

  58. A roast comes from a place of love. What the Left does ain’t love.

  59. for carin:
    http://tinyurl.com/ybmho7pp

  60. haha, car in, then you could fill in the hole in your driveway!

  61. Pupster’s Steven Tyler possum imgur on the previous thread cracked me up, and thank you for that, man.

  62. Just arranged a remote skills test next week for a possible job in Ohio.

  63. Did anybody know this about Ted Knight?? Incredible.

  64. That first part is about Dangerfield.

  65. 5 bronze stars, wow. Never pegged him as Polish, though.

  66. yay, finally got through the java install, and upgrade! On to testing! *prepares helmet, and fire suit

  67. Ted did not earn five Bronze Stars. He participated in 5 campaigns, which each are represented by a small 5 pointed bronze star on the European Theater of Operations ribbon.

  68. I would love, LOVE to know the inside story of how Israel got those documents out of Iran. That’s a book I’d read for sure.

  69. When Laura was a little girl…

    https://tinyurl.com/yb9y6s84

  70. Eddie Albert – US Navy. Drove Amtracks in several Pacific invasions. He served in the landings at Saipan in 1943, where he rescued wounded and stranded Marines from the beachhead. At Tarawa, he was wounded and lost most of his hearing and earned the Bronze Star.

  71. Mel Brooks (Melvin Kaminsky) joined army in WWII and became a combat engineer. Cleared German mines after the Battle of the Bulge. He organized shows for the US troops, and when the German army began transmitting propaganda over loudspeakers Brooks is said to have replied with a version of Al Jolson’s ‘Toot-toot-tootsie’.

  72. Art Carney – US Army. Carney went to Normandy in July of 1944 as a replacement to the 28th Division in position around St L?. He was part of a 30 calibre machine gun squad. On 15 August 1944 he had just taken up his position and was hit in the right leg by mortar shrapnel. After receiving field treatment, he was sent back to Britain and then the US. He once said of his military career, “Never fired a shot and maybe never wanted to. I really cost the government money.”

    Way to go, Art!

  73. Charles Durning – US Army. Durning landed at Omaha Beach in the D-Day invasion. He survived the landing, but was wounded in an ambush during the Battle of the Bulge. He was captured, escaped, and narrowly missed assassination at the Malmedy Massacre. He won three Purple Hearts and the Silver Star. He still carries his memories and battle fatigue to this day.

  74. Jay, the WHCD was absolutely NOT supposed to be a roast. It’s changed the last few years and it should certainly be eliminated.

  75. Jack Palance US Army Air Corps. 455th bomb group. Required facial reconstruction from terrible injuries received in 1943 when his B17 crash landed in Britain.

  76. I understand, mare. But you have to know what you’re getting.

  77. Judge Wapner of The People’s Court was saved from a sniper’s bullet when it lodged in a can of tuna he was carrying while an Army officer in the Pacific

  78. Alan Bates – Royal Air Force, Humphrey Bogart – US Navy, wounded in World War One, tried to enlist in WWII but was turned down because of his age, Michael Caine – Royal Fusiliers, Sean Connery – Royal Navy

  79. When I think of a roast I think of a group of people coming together to honor a person they respect and admire. Sure the jokes are pretty bad and often cutting but it is motivated by a certain love for their target.

  80. Rubbish, Jay. I listened to it this morning. Filth, trash and real nastiness. That kind of language has no place at the WHCD.

    Even many of the journos thought it was a disgrace. Joking about abortions is disgusting.

  81. A roast is Don Rickles roasting Frank Sinatra. A very dear friend.

    A roast is different from “entertainment” at a dinner.

  82. I would agree with the definition of roast.

  83. Of course Trump did know, and that is why he didn’t go, and had a rally instead. I feel bad for Sanders, because she is the target of jokes that go beyond what anyone else ever gets to say, and it’s because she’s a Republican.

    Thinly veiled gay jokes. Isn’t is always?

    But still, you have to know it’s coming.

  84. The skank who spoke used “fuck” (or variations of) about 100 times.

  85. Rod Serling, 511th Parachute Infantry Regiment of the 11th Airborne Division – Serling returned from the successful mission in Leyte with two wounds, including one to his kneecap, but neither kept him from combat when General Douglas MacArthur deployed the paratroopers for their usual purpose on February 3, 1945. Colonel Haugen led the 511th Parachute Infantry Regiment as it landed on Tagaytay Ridge, met the 188th Glider Infantry Regiment and marched into Manila. It met minimal resistance until it reached the city, where Vice Admiral Sanji Iwabuchi had arranged his 17,000 troops behind a maze of traps and guns and ordered them to fight to the death. During the next month, Serling’s unit battled block by block for control of Manila.

  86. Jay, if you expect this, then shut the MOFO DOWN. No more.

    “He thinks abortion is murder,” Wolf said, “which, first of all, don’t knock it ‘til you try it — and when you do try it, really knock it. You know, you’ve got to get that baby out of there.

  87. Wolf did exactly what she was asked to do.

  88. I started to watch that wagon on youtube. I only made it about a minute. The event was a disgrace.

  89. Wolf did exactly what she was asked to do.

    ——–

    Well then, no harm, no foul.

  90. “- “which, first of all, don’t knock it ‘til you try it — and when you do try it, really knock it. You know, you’ve got to get that baby out of there. -”

    it’s important that this is out in the open for posterity.
    they will be judged appropriately.

    the bruised egos and public humiliation will pass.
    some good ppl will be elevated by these events. our enemies are outing themselves in no uncertain terms.

  91. Jam2, I have enjoyed reading tweets from lib journalists who have been honest and said, “The spectacle last night did not help our credibility.” Lots of tweets along those lines.

  92. Looks like Bibi is just happily shitting all over Iran’s parade. Reports from last night indicate that the Israeli’s took out 200 Iranian missiles last night in Syria causing a explosion that registered as a 2.6 on the richtor.

    Then tonight he drops a intel bomb on them……

  93. Meanwhile, Kanye West is tweeting from the works of…Thomas Sowell.

    I swear, if twenty years ago you told me that America would possibly be saved in its darkest hours by Kanye West and Donald Trump, I’d have signed the commitment papers myself.

  94. Probably the first he’s ever heard of him. Ought to give him some Walter Williams, and then disguise a copy of any Clarence Thomas work.

  95. I swear, if twenty years ago you told me that America would possibly be saved in its darkest hours by Kanye West and Donald Trump, I’d have signed the commitment papers myself.

    Truly, we live in the best timeline.

    My other favorite is the one where Henry VIII has a son with Catherine of Aragon and the Anglican Schism never happens, but this one is way funnier.

  96. Truly, we live in the best timeline.

    ———

    Only made possible by the defeat of Hillary Clinton. Otherwise, dispair.

  97. So the Iranians are humiliatexd, the Saudis are telling the Palestinians to come to the negotiating table, and the Norks seem serious about making a deal.

    Shit, Trump may lose in 2020 because he’s done such a good job that voters dont think that they need to worry anymore.

  98. “Meanwhile, Kanye West is tweeting from the works of…Thomas Sowell.”
    ========

    Talk about “woke”……..

  99. CoAlex, I know, right?

    Mohammad bin Salman took control of Saudi Arabia and started making real changes. Hopefully rolling up some of the terror networks and eliminating funding. Recognizes Isreal, tells the Palestinians to make peace. Supposedly Trump is supporting his efforts. Can you imagine peace in the Middle East?

  100. When I half-jokingly declared my support for Trump out of sheer frustration way back in 2015…Christ, that feels like another lifetime now!…I had no idea things would go like this.

    The Lord works in ways most mysterious, indeed.

  101. Mohammad bin Salman took control of Saudi Arabia and started making real changes. Hopefully rolling up some of the terror networks and eliminating funding. Recognizes Isreal, tells the Palestinians to make peace. Supposedly Trump is supporting his efforts. Can you imagine peace in the Middle East?

    If it comes out that Jared Kushner has been quietly running point on this stuff, watch the left lose their collective shit.

    My joke in early 2017 was that if Trump kept it up, conservatives would have to debate whether to the proper phrase was “Trump and Reagan”, or “Reagan and Trump”. At this rate, it’s going to be “Trump and Reagan”.

  102. If it comes out that Jared Kushner has been quietly running point on this stuff, watch the left lose their collective shit.

    I keep hearing rumors that Kushner is indeed the point man for working with Mohammad bin Salman.

  103. Remember when the lefties were making fun of this pic?

    https://tinyurl.com/m3adj5n

  104. Supposedly, these moves all came together with the election of Trump. The Saudis have had a relationship with him and there is a level of trust. They couldn’t trust Obama, and probably not Bush (see the Kurds). MbS takes control of Saudi Arabia, Trump/Mattis blow the crap out of the Russians and prove their support.

    Maybe it will work.

  105. And of course, Kurshner is Jewish which would blow a few more minds.

  106. Ooooh, give Jared Kushner the Nobel Peace Prize! That would probably piss off the left even more than if Trump won it.

    And I can believe that the Saudis were waiting for a strong American leader. Obama would have stabbed them in the back and turned the whole region over to the Muslim Brotherhood and the Iranians.

  107. CARin still thinks she is using the weed wacker at work.

  109. It’s true, God watches out for fools, drunks, and the United States of America. In this case he protected us from a drunk fool.

  110. A drunk cunk.

  111. Cunk is my new favorite slur.

  112. It’s rabbit season.

    Three of them have moved to the country to live on a farm.

  113. Houseguest and neighbors have upped the difficulty level, but I have really bonded with this airgun.

  114. Rabbits are urban creatures. they don’t like the farm.

  115. They don’t like it here for very long.

  116. Heh, at least they get a great last meal, RIGHT LAURA?

  117. That’s my job. There is a family of cardinals that needs to move to the country, but that will have to happen while she”s at work.

  118. Bean eating bastards.

  119. i’m plagued by starlings around here

  120. i’m plagued by starlings around here

    I’m plagued by starlets around here. They twitter incessantly, have bright plumage, and get stalked by tomcats.
