I've been everywhere man, I've been everywhere!

I have been everywhere I think, but its just one big blur know! It was one crazy 3 days. I flew into Philly on Thursday night, well I was supposed to be there 10:30 pm Thursday but ended up getting in 12:30 AM on Friday. Let me tell you what, The city of "Brotherly Love" was not even friendly, let alone giving off any love at midnight! As we are getting our luggage people are dive bombing the luggage carousel, knocking old ladies to the ground, pushing down little children! Man, it was crazy, but hey, that old lady was in my way! I needed to get my bag! People yelling, "hey put that down that's MY bag! I thought somebody was going to get killed or something! I finally got to the hotel and to sleep by 2 am.

Met Joe at the airport and we go get the car. And then fix a couple of things on the car, and start checking the oil, tranny fluid and the antifreeze. Man, it is hot in Philly! You can keep the 90 degrees and 90 percent humidity! Sweating and I haven't even done anything yet! So we follow Wyatt's directions for where to meet them. As we are driving I think I start recognizing where we are going. As we get to where Wyatt suggested we meet I look around, What in the world? We are down by the docks, I turn to Joe and say, "you don't think he is going to shoot us and dump our bodies in that river over there do ya, because I think I seen this place in a mob movie one time!" In fact I know I saw Tony soprano drive by!

So as we are getting an appointment for the radiator flush and oil change, Wyatt calls and says he is pulling into the parking lot, and I go outside to meet him, and think that's not a cop that's Nathan Lane! HA HA I kill myself!! Uglier that you, Puuuuleaaaaaase! But of course, I don't say anything, because if that big bulge on his waist band. I think he brought a cannon with him just in case we turned out to be mobster hit men! HA! So we get in Wyatt's compact car and drive to Famous Daves. Mike shows up a little bit later and we all have a good time getting to know each other. And Wyatt is right, no wait, Mike is always right, I'm so confused! Mike is spot on hilarious! And definitely tied in to all that is happening around where he lives and the country! Mike, if its for a nice golf course, then it's okay! HA! J/K we were talking about Emanate Domain. And I think almost 2 hrs went just like that! So we all went outside for a picture before Joe and I hit the road. In the picture, I'm the good looking one in the middle, Nath.. Oops I mean the distinguished Detective Wyatt is on the left, and Mike on the right.

Man, that ship in the background is big! I can't believe Wyatt said in his blog that he would put us up for the night if we needed it! I think I will take him up on that next summer when I bring my wife and kids (10 of them) to Philly for a weeks stay! Wyatt, you rock!! Man, a whole week with no hotel bill, you know I might be able to stay 2 weeks that way!!

Well, by the time we get turned around and start heading west on I-76 its about 8 pm on Friday, we pulled in to Salem Oregon about 12 noon on Sunday. 3000 miles in 42 hrs. With about 10 hrs sleep time between us. By 5 am Sunday morning we are in Boise Idaho, And every hotel looks like the Waldorf-Astoria! Hey, lets stop there, I don't care if the ATF and Narcotis guys are running into that room, at least its got a bed. I think we both hit the proverbial wall about then! I was soooo stinking tired and Joe looked like a turrets patient without the cursing! I thought he was going into convulsions. Neither of us slept much, because I think that each one of us thought the other was going to go to sleep and kill us both. I KNOW Joe was hallucinating because he kept saying he saw herds of Antelope in Eastern Oregon, but every time I would look there was just dirt and sage brush. Finally I quit looking when he swerved the car into the other lane and said that he was a flying Antelope fly by. So last night, I think it was Sunday night, about 8pm I went to sleep in my own bed, and didn't even move till 7 am this morning. My trip to Philly by Steve "The Shrek"!

I'm off to see the Wizard the Wonderful Wizard of Oz

Well, not excately, but I am off to see Philadelphia. I think that is where they filmed the Wizard of Oz, right? Maybe I will get to see the Detective of Oz! Or maybe the new Jackbooted man of Philly! Or even the drool for David Bell girl from Philly! Hopefully all three will show up. I would love to eat at Geno's even though the locals seem to think it is only a tourist spot. But I just want to go in there and order in English to help support him in his stance. Maybe, just in spanish for the fun of it! I don't know, he might turn out to be like the soup nazi! No philly cheesesteak for you! That would stink! I fly out on Thursday, and hopefully the weather will cooperate, and I won't have any delays. Although flying one way is always good for a cavity search or two! Hey, easy with those cold hands man! Ought to be fun anyways!

US Open Blues

A couple of things today.

1st. LEFTY, LEFTY, LEFTY, I say this as I'm shaking my head. What was he thinking on the 18th hole! Come on Phil, you represent all us lefties that were told golf is a right handed sport. Puuuuleaase!! Still top of the Money list though. On a good note. David Duvall was awesome! Finished a respectable top 20. I don't think he has sniffed the top 20 for about 3 yrs now. Good to see someone preservers and make it happen.

2nd. I don't know why I haven't done this yet but, I have added Damian G to the blogroll. I have seen him comment at other spots and always like what he has to say. I know most of you know him and have him blogrolled, but for those of you who don't, go check out his blog. He has a great post today about the IDIOT Dixie clucks! What morons those idiots turned out to be!

I will leave you with this fine joke:

A man enters a bar and orders a drink. The bar has a robot bartender working behind the counter. The robot serves him a perfectly prepared cocktail, and then asks him,"What's your IQ, sir?"

The man replies, "150" and the robot proceeds to make conversation about global warming factors, quantum physics and spirituality, biomimicry, environmental interconnectedness, string theory, nanotechnology, and the inaccuracies in The DaVinci Code.

The customer is very impressed and thinks, "This is really cool. Iwonder if it works every time?"

He decides to test the robot. He walks out of the bar, turns around, and comes back in for another drink. Again, the robot serves him the perfectly prepared drink and asks him,"What's your IQ?"

The man responds, "About a 100."Immediately the robot starts talking, but this time, about football,NASCAR, baseball, supermodels, favorite fast foods,guns, and women's body parts.

Really impressed, the man leaves the bar and decides to give the robot one more test. He heads out and returns, the robot serves him and asks,"What's your IQ?"

The man replies, "Er, about 50, I think."

And the robot says....real slow,"So... is... your... party... gonna... nominate...Hillary... for.....president?

Aaahhhh! I've been Memed!

Well, Wyatt has memed me. Everyone seems to hate these, but then again I'm an attention whore so I kinda like them! HA! The question is:

What sitcom character would you like to be when/If you ever grow up?

Well, I have never grown up! Just ask my wife and mom! They say I have a juvenile sense of humor! Oh well! I guess it would have to be Jack from Will and Grace! Oh my, I just looooove that man! He is soo scrumptious! Wait... Wait... I just threw up! I can't carry this on! Bleah! Full body shiver!! I'll be right back.............

There now that I have scrubbed my self with a Steel brush and comet, now I can really answer this question!

I think it would have to be Robert from Everybody loves Raymond.

Mainly, because Marie in the show reminds me so much of my Mom! In fact we have nicknamed mom, Marie. That and Ken (pinhead), is the golden child just like Raymond is in the show. Well, there you have it. So now I get to pick 3 to do this. Hmmmm lets see. How about Jt's place, Nightcrawler, Tyler D. That ought to do it

Flag Day

This is a photo of our flag and some of our finest soldiers. They are the 4th Infantry Division 1st Battalion 67th Armor Regiment. I think that is how that goes. Any military personell please forgive me if I got that wrong! And I know they aren't Marines but Captb. will just have to forgive me for that one! Ha! I wanted to give some thanks out to our military and thank them for the fine job that they are doing. Without them we don't know what flag we would be flying. And I for one am kinda partial to the ol' Bars and Stripes! My Grandpa fought in WWII. He was what they called a Waist Gunner in a PBY-5A His gunner position was towards the tail of the plane. They say this was one of the most dangeous places on the plane. I don't know, I figure anywhere during the War would have been dangerous! Anyways, Thanks Grandpa, and to all you veterans out there who have served our awesome Country. And a special thanks to those families that sent off those veterans. Some returned, some didn't! What we must owe those families! They are truly great! So remember on this Flag Day what it took for us to fly this flag! The freedom we enjoy is because of them! Happy Flag Day!!

Wouldn't you know it!

I don't know if this is true or not but,


  • 36 have been accused of spousal abuse

  • 7 have been arrested for fraud

  • 19 have been accused of writing bad checks

  • 117 have directly or indirectly bankrupted at least 2 businesses

  • 3 have done time for assault

  • 71, repeat71 cannot get a credit card due to bad credit

  • 14 have been arrested on drug-related charges

  • 8 have been arrested for shoplifting

  • 21 currently are defendants in lawsuits, and

  • 84 have been arrested for drunk driving in the last year (I think half of those were Kennedy's)

Can you guess which organization this is? Giveup yet? . .

Neither, it's the 535 members of the United States Congress. The same group of idiots that crank out hundreds of new laws each year designed to keep the rest of us in line.

Finally! Some free time!

Maaaaan! For the last two weeks we have been moving our offices across town! I hate moving!! I did get to order around a couple of temps! That was pretty cool! But, the biggest thing I hate the most about moving is... I had no time to blog!! I missed Wyatt's Q & A and all kind of stuff! I sure wish this job would quit getting in the way of my blogging! Man!

And I missed Peaks joke that is going to send his rearend to H e double hockey sticks! Ha!

Being the Hairy type that I am, I was quite amused with Insol's shaving post.

Hey, Jimmy, I got one question for you. All those guns, and that cat is still alive? I mean you shoot pretty good at a target, why not a moving target. Maybe, those aren't your targets but maybe they are your wifes! Heh. I kid! Really it's just a joke. Don't come looking for me with all those guns. I can't move as fast as a cat!

I think JT lit up the spammer! I love that! Because I hate spammers! NO I dont want a bigger member! My morgage is just fine! No I don't want to see an old man and a young woman! And what in the world is Farm Animal Sex! That is just nasty!

Fmragtops and NightCrawler have tag teamed up on Dan, NC's resident liberal, to show him the light. But Dan is a stubborn pupil!

Well, that is all I got right now! It looks like one of my temps is sleeping out in the shop! Ooooh! This is going to be fun!!!
