MMM 370: Spring returns

It’s back in the 60s here and still raining.

She looks ready for some new fighting game I won’t play.


Neat trick, exposing abs while lifting and separating


Pretty smile.


Plum is a neat color.


Warning coloration detected.


I believe this is Allison Stokke.


Have a great Monday, folks.


  1. Leon’s fav hobbies:

    Mushrooms, women that look like men, and questionable real estate decisions.

  2. I’ve given up the latter entirely.

  3. Nice smile and plum are cute.

    From the previous poat, Jimbro is right about the DR. I think they can say goodbye to their tourism industry.

  4. If DR went to war with Haiti, I’d argue the world should just watch.

  5. I’m ok with the rain today. Got my garden planted. I still have a few flowers to put in.

    wakey wakey

  6. at least the DR is semi-advanced. From missionary work there, my brother says Haiti is hell on earth. DR is above that.

  7. Rain is coming tomorrow for us. That means I gotta prune some more today. Not looking forward to being eaten alive by black flies again.

  8. Dats raaaccciisst!

  9. Pupper is not big on the sleep at night thing. She wakes up at 5 am and is ready to play.

  10. I started reading this and thought it was going to be a good article about the sport. Holy crap, I stopped reading after a few paragraphs and my finger got tired from scrolling through it.

    Other than the term “lumbersexual” got nothing out of that

  11. For some, particularly since the election of Donald Trump, the physicality and latent violence of axe throwing has served a therapeutic purpose.

    Well bless their hearts.

    Honest to dog, how do we get back to life without the spectre of adversarial politics infused into every crack and crevice? Sick of it.

  12. Honest to dog, how do we get back to life without the spectre of adversarial politics infused into every crack and crevice? Sick of it.

    Wait for the boomers to die off? They pushed a lot of this crap in the sixties and on.

    Of course, it’s not surprising that as our society becomes increasingly soft that men are drawn to anything that resembles traditional masculinity.

  13. Plum is a wonderful color, and can be used to decorate any space. For example, when piled at the foot of my bed.

  14. DR and Haiti have already fought multiple wars. DR is marginally less effed up than many nations in the area, but only marginally. The Ortiz shooting ain’t gonna help ’em any on top of the other incidents.


  16. Yikes.

  17. I see no need to leave the US, really. This country is huge, varied, and relatively civilized across most of it.

  18. I think it was PJ O’Rouke who pointed out that Americans don’t need passports because we’re so big that people literally retire, buy a moving house, and spend years traveling all over it.

    Want world class skiing? Utah and Colorado? Hiking, camping, etc.? The Pretty much anywhere. Culture? NYC, LA, D.C. Nightlife? NYC, Miami, LA.

  19. If I wanted to go spend my money in a place where people hated me for what I was and wanted me dead, I’d visit California.

  20. I’m with Pupster.

    I pretty much hate that politics is thinly veiled in almost everything.

    And it’s all so dumb. 99% of what is said, written, or alluded to has all the depth of a kiddie pool.

  21. Or New York.

  22. I see no need to leave the US, really.

    MJ still needs to go to Thailand periodically.

  23. Somewhat related…

    You don’t have to go to Venezuela to find socialism (or third world shit hole dump). Just visit any dem-run inner city. But we knew this.

  24. You wanna go to Thailand Pupster? I’m in.

  25. Oy, just drank a full mug of covfefe on an empty stomach. Jittery as hell.

  26. Whew, took me 5 seconds to run around the block.

  27. FINALLY got Scan and Go working on my phone!

    *hears chorus of angels

  28. Absolutely beautiful outside!! Low 70s, little humidity. Should be this way for the rest of the week.
    Now if I can get the mushroom in the downstairs apartment to open her windows……too bad her door is too wonky to install a screen door.

  29. Heh, Good Bill Whittle today

    Get it done!

    I smell summer buddy comedy gold!

  31. Wow, three year old that was shot last night, down in the city, has died. She was standing out there with a sibling and a car pulled up and opened fire.
    A good friend, godmother to my daughter, lives on that street. Never could figure out why she and her dopey husband chose to buy down in the city. It’s in what used to be part of South St. Louis – the white working class half of the city. It started swirling the drain when we were growing up there. All of our parents moved out when we went off to college.
    The violent shits had started moving down from north city. In the 90s came the Bosnians, who didn’t play nice with the blacks. BIL, who was a cop at the time said Bosnians kept in their lane, for the most part, but when felt slighted, were rather inventive and vicious in their response. Everyone knew not to mess with them. Once they got their ‘footing’, they moved on and the messicans/C. Americans have taken their place.

  32. The left are liars.

    I feel weary today. Sick of their shit.

    And I’m being worn down by how alert and on edge you have to be here in Florida with the shitty drivers we have. Every fricken day it’s a close call.

    Don’t use your blinker? Great.

    Weave through heavy traffic using the shoulders as your personal lanes, fine.

    Don’t want to miss an exit so you literally swerve over 3 lanes, sure.

    Ride my car’s ass going 75, yes, that makes sense.

    Wait until THE VERY LAST SECOND to get out of the exit only lane, don’t mind if I do.

    EFF all of you stupid Florida drivers.

  33. You wanna go to Thailand Pupster? I’m in.

    Alright, but you wear the Cher wig this time…and I’ll get some fresh felt from the craft store.

  34. Just stay in the barn, Mare.

    My only bitch about Charlotte is the traffic and shitty drivers. I think I’m going to get a beater to drive when Mrs. Pupsters lease is up, it just doesn’t make sense to drive a nice car here.

  35. Super shitty drivers around Atlanta, too. Used to drive – white knuckled – through there, once a year.

  36. How the fee fo f*ck did I gain 2 pounds since yesterday? Only thing different I ate was a bowl of strawberry flavored Rice Krispies.

    *tosses box of Krispies – f*cker*

  37. I bought Blueberry Chex. I’ve been told they’re tasty.

  38. Haven’t had blueberry Chex. Bought a box of blueberry Cheerios, to try it. Tastes like Boo-berry. Husband has been eating those.

  39. How the fee fo f*ck did I gain 2 pounds since yesterday? Only thing different I ate was a bowl of strawberry flavored Rice Krispies.

    Obviously the only logical answer is that you’re pregnant.

  42. Wait……………WUT?

  43. CEREAL?!?!?! CEREAL?!?!?!

    I LOVE cereal and haven’t eaten it in about 5 years.

    Right now I would like to eat a whole box of Corn Pops (previously and correctly called Sugar Pops).

  44. Go ahead, Mare. Nobody is stopping you.


    I actually wouldn’t mind at all, but nope. Unless it was ‘immaculate’ but that would require a certain trait I lack. My time in Purgatory will most likely be rather extended.

  46. I ate a bowl of corn flakes the other morning, I resisted the urge to put all the couch cushions on the floor and watch cartoons.

  47. You’re biologically a grown-up now, Puppeh. It’s okay to sit on the sofa and watch cartoons from there.

  48. Worky-worky.

  49. Why does Lauraw always try to tempt me to eat things that will put me into a gluttonous, shame spiral?

  50. Blueberry Chex is pretty good, no lie.

  51. Mmmmm, shame and gluttony. Two great tastes that taste great together.

  52. “Tastes Great!”
    “Fills the void in my life!”

  53. My wife found out that our Schnauzer could hardly hear, so she took him to the veterinarian. The vet found that the problem was hair in the dog’s ears. He cleaned both ears, and the dog could then hear fine.

    The vet then proceeded to tell Andrea that, if she wanted to keep this from recurring, she should go to the store and get some “Nair” hair remover and rub it in the dog’s ears once a month.

    Andrea went to the drugstore for some “Nair” hair remover. At the register, the pharmacist told her, “If you’re going to use this under your arms, don’t use deodorant for a few days.” Andrea said, “I’m not using it under my arms.”

    The pharmacist said, “If you’re using it on your legs, don’t use body lotion for a couple of days.” Andrea replied, “I’m not using it on my legs either. If you must know, I’m using it on my Schnauzer.”

    The pharmacist says, “Well, stay off your bicycle for about a week.”

  54. BAHAHAHA, Jay!!!


  55. Front garden weeded and I planted a few oriental lily bulbs. SYWM!!

  56. Cereal? I eat a bowl of frosted shredded wheat about once every two months. It cleans me out from one end to the other. I’ll spare you the details.

  57. Read Mrs. P the schnauzer joke. She raffed hard.

  58. When you want a really smart take you ask O’rourk:


  60. The Wisers were in the DR at one of those fancy resorts. I worked with a guy whose bro is pretty connected back in the DR. I actually thought that I might want to get a passport and DR resort. Just read about a brain burrowing worm in HI.

  61. I’m sucking it up and going to MN for football. Waiting for NHL and college football schedule. Events bring out the metro police in Little Mogadishu.

  62. We really enjoyed Tortola.

  63. Pretty sad that the DR has a tourism campaign based on “We’re not Haiti.” Even sadder, you are safer in Haiti and DR than in New Mexico.

  64. Our new car has a lighted visor mirror. Everyone with chin whiskers knows that morning light+tweezers=best light ever. Dan doesn’t want me tweezing in the new car.

  65. MN sucks.

  66. They talk funny in MN.

  67. I would stand up to defend Minnesota, but it’s gone to hell since last I was there.

  68. I really don’t want to go to MN. My penance for being a crappy housekeeper.

  69. Didn’t we used have post on all of the awesome racist names you can call Minnesotans?

    Maybe it’s in my head. We had a MN native in my old AF unit and I spent an inordinate amount of time coming up with insults.

  70. Off the top of my head:

    Penguin Huffer
    Ice Monkey

  71. “Comment by mare on June 10, 2019 2:29 pm
    Why does Lauraw always try to tempt me to eat things that will put me into a gluttonous, shame spiral?”


    She wants company…..

  72. What, so Dan would prefer your chin whiskers grow out? The hell is wrong with him?

  73. Just got back from Atlanta. Good show, but really wears us out. Had to get up at 4:15 eastern time to catch the plane home.

    Penelope had to stop and get stuff at Hobby Lobby. I’m convinced the whole “boycott them, they’re religious” campaign was a brilliant move by a husband that was tired of that shit.

  74. Ooooo, Pepe. Good burn.

    *nervously looks over shoulder*

  75. Sadie Robertson, 21 years old, just got engaged. Scroll down that’s gotta be a 1.5 – 2.0 carat rock. Halo setting. So jelly.

  76. He doesn’t want me tweezing in the new car.

  77. Dan after visiting safety deposit box to get car stuff: you have lots of sapphires, diamonds, and emeralds in there. Oso: I know. I don’t want to lose anything. Someday. Someday. Today is not that day.

  78. Tweezing is better than picking your nose.

  79. Enjoy your jewels while your eyes still work, oso. We ain’t getting any younger.

  80. Used jewelry sells for about 10% of retail.

  81. On a good day.

  82. Find me an (acceptable) certified diamond with the following specs that is 10% of retail, and I’ll give you a 10% commission.

    Table: 54-57
    Depth: 61-62.5
    Crown Angle: 34.0 – 35.0 degrees
    Pavilion Angle: 40.6 – 41.0
    Girdle: thin to med
    Culet size: none

  83. …about 1.5 carats…eye clean….


  85. Thanks scott, imma check them out.

  86. Has anyone eaten rutabagas? (cross between cabbage and turnips) Are they any good?
    I want to make some pasties and original recipes call for taters and rutabagas.

  87. I’m looking through liveauctions. Buyer’s premium 25%. Not seeing any bargains, yet.

  88. It seems like the local rabbits have just had their spring hatch, and so, the back yard is populated by a bunch of tiny (one hander) baby bunnies. They seem to never stop eating, unless the hawk is in his tree off to the east. When he is up there, they hide.
    Because of that, we had to put stakes and chicken-wire around the baby carrots.
    Really minimal garden this year. Planted butt-loads of fava beans in the areas where we planted corn, to replace the nitrogen, two tomato plants (we have gallons of canned tomatoes), a few volunteer potatoes, asparagus, onions, and chives.
    All the dirt between those plants is covered with 4″ of grass clippings from cutting the lawn. We now have no bare dirt for weeds to take root.
    It is finished…

  89. Good on you, chrisp, for doing the chickenwire thing. I’m going to do that soon for my front garden, to keep the little bastards from eating my flowers.

  90. You better plant extra veggies, beasn, since you’re eating for two now.

  91. Me an another server had a sales contest tonight (really dragged on from last friday). HE got a better section than I so was killing it and going on all night about how he was going to win.

    He beat me by $100 in sales.

    And I made more money.

    ba haaa haaaa haaa

    I told him I was ok with him having to sell more than me to make what I make . SHUT HIM

    I’m still chuckling over that.

  92. him/up

  93. critters don’t get into my garden anymore. Fence and dogs.

  94. I still need to visit MN. I figure on flying into Fargo and getting ND in the same trip.

  95. I would want a margarita machine in my office until I got tired of “free hugs”.

  96. And I made more money.

    Wore that low cut top, huh?

    Oh, wait…

  97. MN is pretty close to Fargo. Go in the summer, maybe the snow will be gone.

  98. Imma gonna go to bed, before someone punches me.

  99. I was actually thinking March, as that is supposed to be a good time to see the aurora. Need more solar activity than we have had lately. (Zero sunspots right now, 97 days without a sunspot so far this year.)

  100. Check the historical weather data for March in MN and ND. It’s gonna hurt. Bring electric underwear.

  101. Don’t ever remain pessimistic.

  102. Wake up, good people. Today is going to be a better day than yesterday.

  103. Wonders what Roamy things of that article ^

  104. Morning! Time to run the gauntlet.

  105. Spirit animal?

  106. hahahahah, check out what really happened in my link.

    Cat brought a present.

  107. It works on a few levels since I’m not drinking.

  108. GND said that Tony Soprano is her spirit animal.

    That made me giggle.

  109. Morning! Time to run the gauntlet.

    I wanna back up and run it again! With more hugs and floof-squashing this time! Wheeeeeee! Ha ha ha! Adorbs. Buncha fun looking clowns.

  110. Just caught a huge mouse this past weekend. Ben was out doing homework in the kitchen and saw it go running under a desk behind some boxes. Set the trap and in the morning it was time for a funeral.

  111. Slept from 1 am to 6 am, tossed and turned, finally gave up trying at 7. Good thing I’m off today. Dad’s taking me to lunch. Gonna bring him a bag of sugarsnaps. A couple weeks ago he gave me crap for not planting him a row of them in his yard this Spring. He’s probably just pulling my leg. I don’t think I ever said I would, plus I reminded him to do it when it was time, and the guy is retired and does fuckall during the day…whatever. I’ll bring him whatever I pick today, lol.

  112. If I saw a rodent in my house I don’t think I could set a trap and wait until morning. I’d tear the fucking place apart.

  113. Your way is better. I just don’t think I could.

  114. A year or two ago when I lived in Indiana our house had a brown recluse infestation.

    All of our neighbors had the same issues. One neighbor told us a neat trick…wrap your bedposts in duct tape.

    God I hated Indiana.

  115. Sugarsnap peas are one of my favorite things to eat. Brings me right back to childhood. And of course, they are nummy (if you like peas).

  116. MJ, your comment was horrifying and made my hair stand up. WTF wants to wake up and see a slew of brown recluse spiders that could have bitten them.

  117. Did you do the duct tape trick and catch any that way, MJ?

  118. My eyes were as big as saucers when she told me that, Mare.

    I opted for Chernobyl over the tape. LOL get fucked Indiana.

  119. My daughter was bitten by a brown recluse. Had to take antibiotics to get rid of the horrible wound/infection.*

    *Her gross, spoiled, rich roommate in college (she lived down the street from Phil Nickelson) NEVER did laundry (even her sheets) and would just pile her crap up in the center of the room. My daughter lifted the pile to move it and got bit.

  120. Not that I could find, LW.

    However, we had lots and lots of them in those little glue traps that were sprinkled around the house.

    One night I killed 4 in our bedroom. That was the end for me.

  121. LOL get fucked Indiana.


    HA! My favorite saying at Ace’s concerning the left.

  122. I was kind of afraid we’d bring some back to Atlanta when we moved but so far so good.

    The new house is super cool. There are ports outside that exterminators use to spray between the walls. Nothing necessary on the inside.

  123. Do not…REPEAT do not google brown recluse spider bite images.

  124. 46 degrees here.

  125. I’ve never treated a brown recluse bite but the year I lived in St Louis I heard an urban legend about a girl who had them living in her hair and had been bitten and, of course, dying. Pretty sure it was a black girl with a natural hair style and somehow whitey was wrapped up it it, maybe teacher at school was white and wouldn’t let her go to see the nurse? Anyway, that was the only year I lived in its range. I did have a kid with cockroaches in his wheelchair that had to be fumigated.

  126. Oh sure, ignore the new poat that has been up since 7am!
