So true about the rights management gives you.

Young lady that walks for exercise. I pass on my bike sometimes and today she said I was a fat old man like her dad My self esteem is destroyed. I now need therapy that includes a 6 pack and a loaded up pizza. Yes it is a BS story the young lady walking is true but I need to make up stuff to stay motivated lol. 20 years ago it didn’t take much to recover today everything hurts 116 miles last week so I can still go now the trick is motivation. Good threads like this one go all over the place.

Add another 50% to it when you are 63 like me. My catch-up mode switch is in the on position. I think its going to be wired to stay that way. Take it from me - Get in shape now, and stay that way. Your 60's will be a breeze.

7 cats... only 6 beers... how did you make that work? And how do you get them to agree on a brand? (I mean, they're cats. They probably change their mind about what they want as soon as you open the bottle, and then again when they get halfway through it.)

Is that your gas-powered cargo bike, with a bulldozer attachment?

We're all headed over to Hondo's place for BBQ and Beers. We're going to have our own lurker party. You are invited! In fact, lets ALL go to Hondo! Hondo is my Luckenbach.

​​​Hey, ​Hondo Gravel !!!

We need to figure out how to rent about 20 campers to park on your property for this event. I'll work on that. You can get to work on how to feed and intoxicate everyone.

Ahsposo, 3alarmer, and thook, have been nominated to head up the Anti-Truth Committee, so participants will be adequately misinformed.

There will be shows and events unique to this gathering. I'm thinking vinegaroon races? Donut eating, pimple-popping, and armpit-farting contests.

I'm looking forward to some good Tejano barbacoa. Cabeza de la Vaca, baby!

We need to name this event something epic, like Burning Man, but better.

Wait, though... does this mean they don't have to be honest about exactly where this thing is being held? Or is Hondo the one in charge of the guest list and so isn't held to a vow of deception*?


*And more importantly: are the members of the Anti-Truth Committtee going to be called Decepticons?

I just knew that you'd be on board with this, Kat!

Yes to your naming convention. The Decepticons will be controlling the media surrounding this event. They will lie, and lie often. The Decepticons will effuse enough misinformation and smokescreens to confound and confuse most people, but only Foosters will know the secret passcodes and passwords to get through. To the unworthy, we'll only be having a small soiree. To the Chosen of these Hallowed Halls of Foo, we'll be having a much-needed respite from the realities of life.

Oh and by the way, Hondo WILL be in charge of the guest list and therefore accountable for EVERYTHING. Hey man, any good plan needs a patsy... a fall guy... you know - someone to blame if things go sour.

I see things going like this. We all land at Hondo's ranch. We all party it up for several days. Eventually food, beer, drugs, and patience will all be used up, and the bickering and fighting will commence. Someone will say something and it will be taken the wrong way, and the fists will start flying. The popo will intervene. Hondo will get arrested and take a ride in the paddywagon, and the rest of us will just pack up and leave.

Burning Redneck Man. Yup, got the room for 20 campers on my small Turnip compound. Pin the tail On the Ahsposo will be the entertainment. I will put apples on all of your heads and try to shoot them with my bow. Hopefully I won’t miss. The local hospital is good enough to stabilize you until air life arrives. Hard rock and heavy metal only. Any kind of beer as long as it is cold. Steal one of the neighbors cows and bar b q it. You all will have to stay out of my house and stay in your campsite. Out in the boonies no one can hear you scream lol. BYOB aka bring your own booze or beer.

Ahsposo is no longer equine (although maybe Stalin rode a horse?). 3A on the other hand is a pretty pink pony (and you're even a ram, so...)

Joseph Ahsposo Stalin vs Vladimir Lenin? Cage Match? Sounds good we can do that. Ram on a pink pony might be against the law lol.

So fat she has her own zip code?

So fat she goes beep beep beep when walking backwards?

You might be a redneck if you use to could.
