Keep it up, Matt. I will lead you to only bad BBQ if you're down for the GP again. :D

 :bigsmile:

Hah! You know it's an empty threat because that would mean that I would have to eat bad BBQ, too, and we know that ain't gonna happen.  :)

You've never eaten bad bbq?

Oh, I have had some truly awful BBQ, a lot of it in Texas, but I would never knowingly lead someone to bad BBQ. Places that serve bad BBQ should be shunned until they die from lack of patrons. Latest example: joint called Cotten's BBQ (an old name in Q from down around Corpus Christi) opens a couple of miles from the house. BiL and I are running errands so we decide to give it a go. I've got a bad feeling about this, Chewie...

Clue the 1st: They have a hostess station.
Clue the 2nd: They have waiters in semi-formal garb, cloth napkins and full place settings.
Clue the 3rd: Hands down the shittiest BBQ I've eaten since a place, which I refuse to name in Cloudcroft, NM, on a bike trip in 2005.

Cotten's BBQ is closed. Shunned. Dead. I'd rather have eaten at Bill Miller than have given those folks another dime.

Me too.

Last week I learned that kindness comes from the unlikeliest people. An old man fell in a busy shopping street (he came into the hospital where I work) and all the shoppers just walked around him.

Three homeless street drinkers put down their bottles of cheap wine and rushed over to help him up.

I learned how to change the licence plate bulbs on the truck today after getting pulled over last night by the local PD.


I'd say f'ing Cop but he was just doing his job...I work in a very bad area and upon walking up the side of the truck and seeing all of the grey in my beard he was visibly  disappointedHe then  told me to fix the lights and walked away without another word.

The licence plate lights on my P/U haven't worked for 10 years. Never been pulled over.

Apparently,

Using a 12 gauge shotgun loaded with bird shot to clear icy limbs off of a power drop is not an LEO condoned course of action in the City Limits of Covington, Ga.


Infact, had I not pointed out that discharging a firearm in a safe manner within said City limits  is only a misdemeanor  the f-ing cop was gonna try to take my gun and lock my ass up.


So, what I learned is:


     Stay out in the County and never buy or rent "In Town."

In your defense, I have myself used the 12 ga tree trimming method, although not near power lines.  Mine were above a roof just out of reach of the trimmer.

I learned my mind is much more flexible than my body.   :rolf:  Learning a new exercise in yoga yesterday, I had my left hip crack like a shotgun just a fraction of a second before I collapsed on the mat.  I was fine, but my hip is much more limber today.  Apparently, I cleared a bunch of crud out of the joint and broke some bound up tendons free.

I learned two things, so far . . .

Thing the first -- Aerospace 303 Protectant is apprently water based. Who knew (not me).

Second thing -- my wife, while recounting stupid customer tricks, taught me to type #WTF - I am a fan of economy in communition. Bueno!
We had two bags of grass, 75 pellets of mescaline, five sheets of high-powered blotter acid, a saltshaker half-full of cocaine, a whole galaxy of multi-colored uppers, downers, screamers, laughers... Also, a quart of tequila, a quart of rum, a case of beer, a pint of raw ether, and two dozen amyls. Not that we needed all that for the trip, but once you get locked into a serious drug collection, the tendency is to push it as far as you can.

We learned this week that our 75lb black lab is no match for my sister's 18lb tabby.  The recent Feline - Canine Cold War went to DefCon 1 when Murphy, the aforementioned cat, dropped a turd directly in front of the dog's bed.  Recent intelligence reports suggest this may have been a retaliatory strike for being chased down the hallway the night before.

The initial on-site BDA showed a high degree of accuracy with little or no collateral damage.

I learned that there's a train line from St. Louis to Moline, with a bike path that heads along the Mississippi back to St. Louis.
