threadjack - no tangential thinking

put on your blinders and forget what you've just read. probably you already blew it.

in order to post here, you need to discuss something completely irrelevant to the original post (whatever that was) or to any post previous to yours. any subsequent post with even a sense of concentration or tangential thinking will not be allowed.

all urges to threadjack can only be satisfied by discussing a prior post.

This posthole digger works better than the conventional type, because it uses your body weight rather than your muscles to get the job done. The top half of this patented device looks like a pogo stick, while the bottom half (the half that pulls out the dirt) looks like an ordinary posthole digger
Above is about the telescopic posthole digger.

I would have posted a picture but I started thinking about blinders on a horse.*

In New Mexico I think they spell their chile stew dish "chile".

Psst, Nords: there aren't a lot of chicken ranches or tofu ranches in Texas. They're a bit biased because of that I think.
My dog's feet smell like Fritos.

The question remains - Do I have enough to retire?
I'm off to take my 25 year old Victoria Secrets model girlfriend out to Ruth Chris for a birthday dinner and will check in tomorrow.
I know this will cause a lot of discussion but I liked the 1966 Chevelle Malibu over the Mustang. Larger car, just as fast and better styling.

Your paying too much for dinner. Ruth Chris is overrated. I had a steak here once and it was so soft I could cut it with a fork. Longhorn is just as good.

Dex,

40 years ago last month I picked up my brand new 1966 SS 396 chevelle. *Still have the picture of it in my wallet that I took the day I picked it up. * Ah, to be young!

Can someone explain the yellow and red card thing in the world cup to me?

Re: threadjack - no tangential thinking

This is a Bogle joke - right

A true curmudgeon - just keeps coming back to the original thread and hammering away - the rest of the posters can do what they will - but they can't swipe MY keyboard.

Besides - I like some of the pictures.

heh heh heh heh heh heh heh heh heh heh - cross threading is sometimes fun.

So we went to town, but first we tied an onion to our belt, that being the style at the time.

Speaking of the Simpsons, I am thinking of buying a Simpsons pinball machine. Does anyone else like pinball?
