I'll go warm up the car.

Whoa! Can't believe I was first! Especially since everyone's sitting home scrolling endlessly thru thier bookmarks. Landing on Dave every 10 minutes or so...

Time flies like an arrow.

Fruit flies like a banana.

kenzen, the geezer bus is a bit slow, like its passengers.

MOTW: Whaaaaat??

Anybody need to go to the bathroom? If you don't go now, we
are NOT stopping, so you'd better bring a cup!

Must be the moonlight.. it happens every so often.

Isn't that what the small donkey said to the cowboy hat:"You go on a head, and I'll be just a little behind."

MOTW--kenzen must have misplaced his ear horn again. They are still commonly used in some parts of Oregon.

Thanks, I'll meet you there when I get back after I arrive.

Hop like a bunny, scat like a cat. I said that , in case you were at all wondering

Jeez! Slow down, if you just wait up, we all go down together.

If you visit Oregon, drive safely or you could wind up being an Oregon donor.

You go on ahead and enjoy; I'll just sit here in the dark.

Wait! I forgot to get my dreams!!

"Strangers in the dark, exchanging glances" and by that I assume, dirty looks?

@cfjk-I assume you are talking about cows then?

Go ahead, make my day.

Just don’t make my dirt. Unless of course you have to , being quarantined and al...

My wit has escaped me. Can we build a campfire?

Who isn't?

Sure, Marshmallow, whatever you want. Those mushrooms don't agree with everyone, go easy next time. Build that campfire.

Which one of you set up the navigation system?

@kenzen in Oregon--Did you hear about the beaver who had to see a psychologist because he just wasn't eager anymore?

Or the person who called The Beaver Institute and was told "all representatives are busy, but what did you expect?"

(Hey, Oregon IS the Beaver State!)

There it is!!

I’m going through a down time. Who’s with me?

This thread is off the rails.

Here's an interview with Dave from November of last year that touches on his Presidential campaign that is now in full swing...

Vote early and vote often!

Just wait and see it's gonna be closed by the time we get there.

Good advice for life: You should plow in the direction the mule is headed.

I trust we will not see a repeat of last night's unseemly masquerade. Juggling several aliases fools no one, and is a flimsy camouflage from which to launch a sexist remark at our own dear nursecindy. High five to MOTW. And public nuisance nomination to the handler of the alias menagerie. May you get the rest you so desperately need.

Someone should alert Dave that Isaias the hurricane-wanna-be is going to pass real close to Miami come Saturday evening....as in 2 days. Better bring the dog in!

A classic column from Sunday, October 13, 1985...

@pharaross---This thread is off the rails? this thread don't need no stinkin' rails! The train done fell over somewhere West of Dodge.

https://www.thesun.co.uk/news/12272570/dad-lost-penis-grow-on-arm/ Do not go here! For four years? To be fore-warned is to be fore-armed.

@kenzen in Oregon - I feel so much better about myself knowing I am not the only one landing on the Blog every ten minutes! :)

Rails?
The pessimist sees a dark tunnel...
The optimist sees a light at the end of the tunnel
The realist sees two lights at the end of the tunnel
... and the engineer can see three idiots standing on the rails.

@Qaz - :) As a kid I loved going on Mr. Toad's Wild Ride at Disneyland, but as a geezer I don't think I'd survive that heart-stopping moment when the train headlight comes straight at you in the dark.

Le Pet

My use of the phrase "off the rails" is synonymous with unrestrained, free wheeling and spontaneous, which makes open threads interesting reads. Not intended as a pejorative term but complimentary.

@pharmaross- Whatever, but both you and Qaz get a 5* Snork for the great humor! We all need the laughs badly.

Thanks,MadHat. At least one of you admits it. -o.o-

Le Petomane: you're an odd duck. (we have ducks here too)...

...and while I'm here, pharmaross: no pejorative intended... (he says dryly)

“You can lead a hor ti culture, but you can’t make her think.”

OK EVERYBODY GET ON THE GEEZER BUS!
NOW!
We will be passing out your Valium shortly.

Thank you for your cooperation.

Never say passing to an old person, so out YOUR valium, shortly.

Calling all persons on the blog with medical training, cfjk require extra 'treatment'. Please report to the 'bus with wet sheets and the defibrillator! STAT

Hey now! I'm not Dave either, so don't go all Judi on me! (And don't be too cocky, just becuz you can't be fired.)

Today djou lie! I'm just a patsy! Tomorrow, just try & be more august, and then we can put this all behind us. I'll just go on ahead.

Just drop it. If you can't take a joke then at least take a shower and cool off.

Gotcha!

@kenzen - Why a duck?

Because that's how you find out who all the (THIS SPACE INTENTIONALLY LEFT BLANK) are in a large crowd. They're the ones who suddenly put their heads back to look at the sky, when behind them, you yell: "DUCK!!!" ...Maybe?

Maybe because (THIS SPACE INTENTIONALLY LEFT BLANK) are the ones who suddenly throw their heads back to look at the sky when you sneak up behind them and yell:"DUCK!!!" ...Maybe?

If there's no echo in here, then something wierd's goin' on.

I suppose someone should sum this up.

>clears throat<
