Awesome, listened to some Ted Nugent riding in my friends Corvette Z06 today. That looks like the bow my grandpa-in-law uses, you know, one of the many in-laws that could kick my a**.

I just hope Ted ain't wearing reading glasses. A man's got to have cherished illusions.

That might very well be the "just" thing to do, esp. considering you all
are subjected to my rants. I will take it under advisement.

Hi JG

I could use a fishing boat... an ugly one would be just fine. One that you don't care if it has water, oil, and a little fish guts sloshing around. You got one of those?

Re: Girls Cost More to Raise

Wow i'm late on this one, but its all relative.

I told my wife when she was pregnant and before we "knew", that if we had a girl, she'd be spending the first 40 or so years of life wrapped in a rug in a closet. Very low cost.

We simply dont have enough room in the back yard to bury all of the guys that she'd bring home. Or the ones I'd have to hunt down, kill and skin. Plus I dont need that many pencil boxes made from shinbones.

I guess we could have just not ever toilet trained her. That was always my rule. Girl pooped on a date, I took her home. Unless she had really big boobs.

C'mon, TH, get with the modern parenting. Today we teach our daughters martial arts (thus outsourcing the father's traditional duties, and incidentally saving quite a bit on shotgun ammo) and our property line backs on a large gulch zoned for fertilizer agriculture.

There is no way that I'm going to turn this into a "So how did you meet your wife?" joke...

Re: Girls Cost More to Raise

Knowing our collective DNA, teaching a daughter martial arts would result in her dragging home unconscious boys whether they were interested or not.

On the subject of the second matter...oh...come on! Betcha cant do it.

Boring "how did I meet my wife story"...we were both at a party of a mutual friend and in her words "I heard someone talking and he had the sexiest voice i've ever heard, so I found who was speaking and introduced myself".
