  1. What a little beauty! You and Anna do good work.
  2. The MFYs are on the Titanic, and the Orioles are the iceberg, with 90% of its mass unseen below the surface of the hype, watching, waiting, ready to strike
  3. When I was a kid, my dad was a Colts fan, so naturally I was a Colts fan, too. But I love baseball a lot more than I love football, so I chose the Orioles as my team. I've been a fan since the 1959 season, or 53 years and counting.
  4. Can't Jeter just lift up his staff and, instead of parting the waters, just send them out to sea?
  5. May his name be a blessing.
  6. We sell Political Poppers at the store. When you squeeze the popper's tummy, the foam ball comes shooting out of its nose; the harder you press, the farther the ball goes. During a political commercial, you just let fly at the TV to vent your frustration, anger, disgust, repulsion, revulsion, bemusement, horror, or dry-heave-inducing aversion to whatever is happening. You feel better, no one dies, and the TV is safe. This posting was paid for by the OH Rules All Committee and is not authorized by any major political party.
  7. New Mexico Highlands University. Go, as they say, Cowboys.
  8. I love the OH because everybody is there for whoever needs information, a laugh, help, advice, prayers.
  9. Happy birthday, bobmc! Crusty old farts rule all! Here's a big wet DurbSmooch: MmmmmmWAH!
  10. Woo-HOO! Prayers still heading your way for an uneventful and really, really boring recovery. Go, Cathy! Go! love, durb
  11. I am offering my work as a prayer for Cathy. Love, Durb

    Pet Loss

    My heart is breaking for you. Spencer will be waiting for you at the Rainbow Bridge. You are in my prayers, Spoonless. love, Durb
  13. Every time the Birds go into extra innings (or as Michele calls it, "overtime"; she also calls the catcher "Li'l Matt Wieters" and the center fielder "that nice Adam Jones"), I warm up the defibrillator. Fortunately, I haven't had to use it 85.7% of the time. I'm having a blast, thank you very much.
  14. Another thing, very important. When you're motorvatin' around in your cool brace, people will ask, "What happened?" You reply, "They can't talk about you that way when I'm around!" They'll be so moved and touched by your defense of them that they'll take you for some ice cream or a beer or something. I hope you are doing well, Snutchster.
  15. One thing, very important. When you go back to your physician for your final visit, ask, "Will I be able to climb the stairs again?" Your doc will say, "Of course!" Then you say, "Thank goodness! I was tired of shinnying up and down the drainpipe." I hope all goes well for you.
  16. I am right-handed, but I peel oranges and deal cards left-handed
  17. Anyone else get more than a little turned on by Jen Royal?
  18. My sister and niece are going to the Olympics as spectators. They have tickets for men's and women's basketball, men's and women's beach volleyball, an equestrian event, and a couple other events. They're also going to Stratford to get a Shakespeare fix and to Ireland. I love the whole concept of people trying their utmost, even when they may not be very good. I'm thinking of Eric "The Eel" Moussambani in the Sydney Olympics and Eddie "The Eagle" Edwards at Lake Placid. Every Olympic athlete is a champion, if you ask me.
  19. In-N-Out cheeseburgers. Fortunately, the nearest one is about 8 hours away. "Toddlers and Tiaras" is like watching a train wreck. Those moms! Those double-wides! My eyes! My eyes! (Oooo, it's on tonight.)
  20. You talkin' to me? Happy birthday, Scott! Crusty old farts rule!
  21. What joy! And another little O's fan in the world. My congratulations and best wishes.
  22. I'm sorry we couldn't get together for lunch this time around. I hope you are pain-free and stone-free soon.
  23. I am offering my work as a prayer for Cathy. Love, Durb
