When I got in the car this evening I was literally shivering. And I had a sweatshirt on.


maybe you should be tested.

Incorrect.

I'm walking the property, picking up a million sticks from the last rainstorm, I come around a corner and see a guy mowing the softball field.

I went over and talk to him and he's from the tenant church that uses our facilities. Turns out they're planning to have an outdoor service this weekend since the church building is "closed."

Anyway, after toiling for weeks in obscurity, at last my mowing finally counts. Someone will be there to appreciate the finely trimmed lawn. :bday:

Tomorrow's high predicted to be 90A. And cloudy. Perfect weather. Too bad there will be no riding.

Across the street there's a house with a fenced yard. The last two weeks I've seen a couple dogs out for a spell.

They do this thing where they half lunge at each other, then "wrestle." One of the dogs is larger than the other and can "pin" the other.

After a few seconds the smaller dog breaks free, but rather than run to safety, he runs around and comes back to get pinned again.

It doesn't make any sense. Dogs are weird.

Why aren't you guys sharing this wisdom in the actual thread instead of hiding out in here like cowards bad mouthing the thread? Of course Billy D is letting it go on even though it is against the rules.

It's weird that you lurk the thread seemingly for the sole purpose of playing hall monitor.

We need supervision.

I do. They probably need to eat more beets.

Someone has to do it, the current mods don't. I don't really give a rat's a$$ what is said in this thread as long as other people outside of this thread get to talk about, and trash other people and other threads like Mo and datlas are doing with the cramps thread. Billy D and his crew will not allow that to happen plain and simple. They protect their little flock and let them say whatever they want. Anyone that tries to respond, even if they do it within the Addition thread gets the boot. If you want me to quit monitoring this thread, then let everyone on the boards have equal say. Easy enough.

rjones28 04-30-20 10:00 PM

You can say ass.

You bring up a good point. You are absolutely correct in the point of talking about other threads. Posts have been deleted, the thread was closed because of it, yet it does continue. I cannot for the life of me understand why it continues. It's out in the open for all the regular folks to see, and I guess this is going to be the final time it's asked. Stop talking about other goddam threads. This isn't in a bubble, believe it or not, and other people can see it.

Stop it.

Now. seypat, if you have something to say, report it. You've been here long enough to know that. Whether or not we're mods,. or part of Billy D's "crew", we don't live here, and not every mod may monitor this thread, at all times. Sorry we don't "meet" you expectations, and I promise we'll try to do better, just for your snarky little ass. Really. I promise we'll elevate our game.

Bigly

Are we ALL clear on this?

Don't answer, because the matter is closed, and I'll take your silence as a yes.

I have to go to a large hospital for a routine blood test. Sort of freaks me out.

I am telling my patients who need "routine" tests that it's ok to postpone them for a month or two.

In your case, I am guessing it's an INR so you probably do have to get it done.

Hannah got a letter from Thomas Dolby a few years ago, trying to get her to enroll in his program at Peabody/Johns Hopkins for students who are into both mathematics and music.

It was interesting to see his name on the letter.

I'll just apologize to the community for having endangered it, especially at this difficult time, and go away for a while.

We got a decent amount of rain, enough to get the creeks up pretty high, but not quite spilling their banks.

Yep :thumb:

I think the statue is still covered and undergoing restoration. It's been like that for like 3 or 4 years :rolleyes:

Sorry, I should have been more specific.

Oregon Ilinois, not Oregon, Wisconsin.

It's not necessary to disappear, and I'm sure the community accepts your apology, MoAlpha. The rules is the rules, you're now painfully aware of them, as I read your post, and we move on.
