Best message board thread ever.....

What pranks did your parents play on you as a child?


My mom and dad always told me to stand up in the back seat and jump up and down when we were going up hills so the car wouldn't stall out.

.....yeah, I remembered.

What pranks did I play on my kids?

I remember scaring our son shitless by hiding under a blanket and popping out.

I told her daughter we were having monkey hair and boogers for dinner.

I'm a bad man.

49 ...and counting. Slowly.

Shit...Billy Mays is dead?

That's the second famous 50 year old to die in the past week. You know they say stuff happens in 3's.

I'm sure glad I'm 49.

How long............

Hmmm, let's took Anna Nicole about a month to fade away after she overdosed.

How long will MJ hang around?

At least I don't have to read about Jon and Kate+8 for a few weeks.

It's been a king hell busy week- more blathering to come.

Change in the scenery..........

I get the chance to work in another store for the next couple of nights.....oughta be interesting. My boss told me to not do too good of a job or the manager will want me to transfer.

Whatevers...I know the bakery manager pretty good, in fact I helped hire her as a part timer and trained her about 10 years ago. Maybe a change of scenery would be nice-we'll have to see how the next couple of nights go.

Just watched Jon and Kate Plus, what a freakin' trainwreck.

Are you a dick???

My son found this site and sent me a link. The apple doesn't fall far from the tree... does it?

My neighbor is a pilot for a major airline and due to his work schedule....sometimes I'm at work when he does his shopping. He stopped in last night and we were talking about the Air France tragedy...the dude has been flying fighter jets and passenger jets for the last 35 years so he pretty much knows what he's talking about when the discussion is about large passenger aircraft or aviation in general.

His opinion of large composite aircraft? He won't fly on one.


Hell, I just make donuts for a living but I do know composite stuff doesn't bend snaps. Maybe I'll stay off the plastic airplanes as I fly a lot anyways.

I'm not much of a redneck, but what the hell do you do when another country launches a missile (which might or might not have a nuclear warhead attached) at you? I guess if it was me answering the red phone........I'd atom bomb the living shit outta the country responsible. Lots of innocent people would to be them-too bad they have a batshit crazy guy running their country.

If I haven't scared the crap out of one of my fellow central Pa bike bloggers with my wild political blatherings and observations about composite materials ...we're gonna meet up sometime this summer for a nice casual ride. Any of you fellow bike bloggers that live nearby (and I know there are some out there) feel free to invite yourselves along when ever we figure out a time and date.

I'm harmless....honest.

So.....I'm at work last night doing my thing frying donuts, I turn around and they are 3 guys standing there..... all of them weighing at least 300 pounds, and they were all staring at me.

All 3 of them had red bushy hair.

All 3 of them were wearing the same color flannel shirts with the sleeves ripped off.

Did I mention that they were triplets?


Of course, they bought a couple dozen donuts....I'm just happy they didn't buy all the donuts.

Here is some info from Jim.....

PLEASE try & help me find a home for these kittens!!!

The gray/white is male & other 2 are female all short hair.

I don't want to let them run wild here at the trailer park,, there's already enough wild/strays here!

Me & the momma have raised them since first born when momma first brought them into our trailer.

They are litter box trained & eat solid food.

They seem very healthy, very clean & they all sleep on my bed!!

They're going on 9 weeks now & ready to go.

If money is a problem, I will donate $50 per kitten for shots & fixing.

If you can't take one,,PLEASE ask around PLEASE HELP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!,,, Jim 717-487-0133

I can tell you my buddy Jim has a heart the size of Alaska-if there was any way he could keep them-he would, but he already has several kitty's he has adopted.

Jim is located in Lewes Delaware and runs a charter fishing service-I'm sure he would be happy to send more pictures or talk about the cats-please give him a call if you are thinking about adopting a cat.

School's out.....

All I can say is "yay". Our son's last day of school for the year is Tuesday. I get to go to sleep as soon as I get home in the morning for the next 2 1/2 months.

With the four of us... we all have wildly ranging sleep habits.

My lovely wife usually gets by on 6 or 7 hours of sleep a night and sometimes gets a nap in the afternoon schedule permitting...I don't know how she does it. She easily looks at least 10 years younger then she actually is.

Me? I go all over the place. Sometimes I'll be sleeping by 6 AM in the summer and sometimes I stay up until 1 or 2 in the afternoon and get up just in time to go into work at 9PM.

Our daughter sleeps whenever she has the chance- that kid is on the go...sometimes a day or two will go by without us crossing tracks for more then a minute or two.

Our son? In the summer, he tends to stay up late and about a month into his summer vacation, he's usually on the same sleep schedule as me. It's a real pain for him to get back to a regular sleep schedule by the time school starts but as an added bonus- him and I go out to breakfast quite a bit while he's on vacation since he's still awake when I get home at 5 AM.

I kinda like that....any time you get to spend with your kids while they still live at home-you never get that time back when they grow up.

I think I'm in love...

The Heart Cart. Hmmmm I sure hope that laptop isn't using Windows.

I wonder if my boss would understand this....probably not.

This couple will have the best wedding day story ever.

Interesting pictures from Iraq.

This is gonna be fun. I've become such a TV whore. I've been watching Real Housewives of New Jersey...

If I had some stupid money....I'd buy this, a 52" TV and a killer sound system.

My son sent me this.....Missing Baby Found in Sandwich. It's bad, but not in the way that you think it's bad.

I've had clients like this in the past.....guess what? When they call me for service...I'm usually too busy to see them for several weeks.

This guy is pretty funny.

I guess if you are can say pretty much anything....whatever, that's what free speech is all about-but I bet he ends up on a "watch" list.

Quite an imagination.

Like music from the 80's? Remember this music video?

Finally...a cute kitty picture.

One of those weeks.......

It's only happened one other time in the last 3 years...but last week I made more working on computers then I did making donuts.

Gosh, what do I do with all that money?

I've taken very little out of the business....95% of the proceeds go right back into the business buying new equipment, supplies, etc.

I borrowed some money from my parents and when I get that all payed back....I'll be buying another laptop to use as a loaner and a desktop PC to use as my main PC. I beat the hell out of my laptop and I've found out that they don't last much more then 3 I'm switching over to a desktop to save some money.

Spend money to save money...I love how that works out.

I do think I'm going to wait to buy something until Windows 7 has been released...tried the upgrade route with the beta version of 7 and it was a complete disaster. Rule #1 of computer stuff....if it's ain't broken, don't try to fix it.

One thing I don't like about being a part time computer consultant is driving around meeting with clients.....dear Lord I hate traffic. Maybe if the traffic all moved at 85 mph-then I'd be okay with it.

Don't get me wrong, I love helping senior citizens with computers and tech and I have all the patience in the world when I'm showing an 80 year old how to send pictures in an e mail....but put the same person in a car and put them on the highway....well, I suppose I gotta do a better job working on my patience behind the wheel.

For most of last week, I was surviving on 5 hours of sleep a day, last night, I slept 9 felt great to sleep in. Got up at 5 AM, got my lovely wife a paper and a cup of coffee and headed out to detail her car and cut the grass and then saw three clients.

Yeah, baby...ain't nothing like owning your own business. In between my full time job and my part time job...I put in close to 80 hours last week.

Jon and Kate + 8...

Wow...what a trainwreck.

What those two parents need to remember is that looked into one another's eyes and took marriage vows that probably included terms like "for better or worse" and something like "until death do us apart" .....marriage is some serious stuff-I hope they work their problems least for their children's sake.

Yeah, if they ain't happy together....too damn bad.

They need to suck it up and be civil with each other (and stay married) until their kids are all out of school...just my opinion.

Horse tradin'....

Did some horse trading with one of my clients and as a result....our 15 year old now carries around one of these. The thing has options for the options....way too fancy for me.
