    “Free”? Certainly seems to be first up against the wall, come the revolution to me . . .

    Do the coolers come with the colony of feral gerberts that have been living inside or do I have to remove them first?

      They’re not feral; they’re free-range organic and cost twice as much.

        Now you prepare that Fetzer valve with some 3-in-1 oil and some gauze pads, and I’m gonna need ’bout ten quarts of anti-freeze, preferably Prestone. No, no – make that Quaker State.

    The Morlocks have left us some more free stuff. We have to get it before dark because, well, we just do, okay?

      I think this is a science experiment “gone bad” and the Sonny Morlock has to get rid of it before the HazMat team get there and tells his father NTB Morlock where he been hiding his stash.

    Those chairs look like they’re doing something dirty. And I’m not talking about the coat of dirt encrusted on them…

        And here we are in the corner. We’ll use one of these free coolers for snow and throw snowballs at everyone else! Giddyup!

          Still icy here in DFW, no one much finds fun in snow or snowballs.

          New term from over the weekend: “cobblestone ice.” This is where icy/snowy spots have been worn into ruts, then hard frozen back over again, repeatedly. (Adding to this are the ginormous chunks of ice slid off vehicles.)

          Weather people even used the term “freezing fog” (from the depths of the Appendices on “Uniform Weather Reporting Terminology” no doubt).

          Was not a pleasant 90 minute 8 mile drive this morning–drivers worse than the roads, and the roads were alternating wet, damp, black icy, and frozen over.

          About 4″ here in south central pa with a 2 hour school delay. South got hit a little worse around Balm’r. I love the snow though and it made a good birthday present!

    My mind is going, I can feel it.

    C”"J and meeshybee, I hope you enjoyed your false sense of security. I have several redundant systems to remind me to punch people. I ignored all of them. Oh, well. Punchity Punch Punch!

    Ralph, sorry about not putting you in the box on Saturday morning. At least this way, you can hold Jazzie in front of you when I punch you out tomorrow.

    Good Morning, Dave.

    Rats, I’m fresh out of “gone”. Maybe they’ll trade it for some “went”?

    Ice weasels is the name of Dave’s secret second family tribe. Don’t tell Mrs Ferret.

      Uh, you might have better luck getting rid of your “stuff” if you carried it all out to the curb. A lot of folks are out doing their Christmas street-shopping right now…you’re missing a great opportunity….you’ll have to break up that “toy-bang party” though….it looks like they’re all lined up to go next after the top lounge is done. At least they’re behind a privacy fence…

        You’ll have to break up that “toy-bang party”

        **le heavy sigh**

        Now you’ve gone and done it… As soon as I read “toy-bang party”, it brought this to mind.

        Now I haz an earworm…

      Do you think this will top that rusty boat filled with sand and shards of glass you got them last year?

      Adores: 6
      • 2013 December 9

        No, we’ll never top that. Tetanus is the gift that keeps on giving.

    …Ice weasels. There was a dead stoat covered in bits of ice in one of my trash barrels the other day. He must have crawled in there (the barrel was on its side… and empty) one cold night, curled up, and died. The smell was worse than the very worst public bathroom.
