Come on back - we've been partying every Thangsgiving since you left - D.B. Cooper festival in Cougar, Washington.

Hey - if you are broke I'll spring for the Tee shirt and baseball hat with your name on it.

But the twenty grand they found in the sand on the banks of the Columbia is gone for good - Feds being the kill joys they are.

heh heh heh - ok ok so I couldn't resist - if this thread turns serious I will. .

BTW my memory ain't worth spit - party's in Ariel, they moved the day and the amount of money found was a lot less - dang Google.

what cantlogin so very well said.

um, dawg, that's just freaky.

in new jersey high school i had to learn the names of every plant that grew in town. our biology teacher took us into the field, pointed to a plant and we'd write down the name for our test. i got all the names 100% correct. a few months later i moved to st croix usvi and all the plants changed.

when i first planted the gardens around my house i knew the names of every plant. i catalogued them. i was planning to label everything for tours which friends (& even passer-by's) request. but ya know, an oak tree doesn't know it is an oak. a fox tail palm does know it is not a bismarkia. a dog doesn't know it is not a elephant. just names, just labels placed upon them by people.

now i am terrible with names, not even so good with faces. if i'm not sexually attracted, i won't know you 10 minutes after we've been introduced. but engage me in conversation, one on one, for a decent amount of time and i likely will forget your name but i will know you 20 years down the line.

So to reconcile this official name of Cute Fuzzy Bunny along with your new-ish signature line, would it be...

Cute Fuzzy Bunny Poopyhead, or
Cute Poopyhead, or
Fuzzy Poopyhead, or
Poopyhead Bunny, or

.. should we just call you Poopyhead?

Inquiring minds...

I was wondering how long it was going to take for someone to ask about that!

My son, via the enabler my father has learned about the wonderful world of calling people names. Of course anything with the word 'poop' in it is quite hysterical. He's come to the conclusion that adding 'head' or 'face' to any funny word is ten times funnier.

So the other day he ran up to me and with a big grin concocted the best funny name he could think of and yelled "POOPYHEAD!"

I'm so proud. I need to move and not tell my dad where we went.

In other news, I'm pretty sure that Keith Richards has been dead for at least 15 years. I think they keep him on ice and on occasion for performances they defrost him, pump him full of some noxious liquid and then apply 20,000 volts to him until he twitches around on the stage via nominal voltage supplied by his guitar.

Awright, most of the games (nfl) are over for the day. It was a rhetorical question. After a couple of years of corresponding with comic strip characters, I thought I would do a reality check.

Maybe it was the subliminal response to that. I look at the list a lot but not so much that I have a handle on every thread. Sorry.

Isn't this why the ignore option was added?
I have 6 people on mine right now.

I can't believe I'm up to 2,258 posts - I'm sure most of them were devoid of great insights.
Like this one.

My real name is Goonie, because I'm a goon....always have been....always will be.....and I'm darn proud of that!
Besides, I don't think the Mods would have let use my other name...."A**hole".

I belong to one forum that requires first and last name as the log-in username. It's a very small SIG forum.
