  1. What have you received today?

    I'll tell you a series of movies my wife got me hooked on watching...the Thin Man series with William Powell and Myrna Loy, from the 1930's. Fantastic series and so darned comical. Myrna Loy was adorable and William Powell so witty and comical. Absolutely a must-see series if you've never seen them.

    I'm just an old southern redneck. I've never seen the first Harry Potter movie or read a book of it. My youngest daughter has read them all, plus many many more. I couldn't tell you a thing about HP if my life depended on it.
  3. The "What have you done today?" thread.

    Great story behind the lighthouse. Do they have a web site for the B&B?
  4. The "What have you done today?" thread.

    Awesome photographs, Jack. Thanks for sharing these. What year was that lighthouse built? Nevermind. I should learn to read all, as the answer is in your first sentence.
  5. If I was spraying it on with an airbrush, would use lacquer thinner. If brushing on, turpenoid.
  6. Acrylic should cover Floquil okay provided you give the Floquil plenty of time to dry out. I would wait a week. Sometimes paint may feel dry to the touch, but it's still curing under the surface.
  7. Them Old Jokes

    Pretty soon, there will be a law against saying something is against the law because you've offended the law breaker.
  8. The "What have you done today?" thread.

    When I was a kid, my bedroom was upstairs. There was a door in the 2nd floor hallway that led directly into a walk-in attic. Pigeons would find their way into the attic and make all kinds of noises at night, scratching around and so forth. It used to freak me out as I imagined all sorts of nightmarish trouble in that attic, and it wasn't pigeons I imagined. It was the boogey-man!

    Lol - that's a pretty slick way to keep the critters out. A one-way sock door.
  10. Will never forget living on top of a mountain in West Virginia in 1982 when my thermometer was pegged at 10 below zero and the wind was just howling. Went outside to learn what was scratching at my basement door, and found a distant neighbor's dog frantic to get inside. It was so cold, it was breath taking. Of course I let the poor dog inside. He would have been a popsicle in no time had I not let him inside to stay warm beside our water heater.

    Jack Dempsey was the heavyweight champion of the world. After he retired from boxing, he owned and operated a well known bar and restaurant for many years. He kept a routine of closing the bar and carrying home the money each night for deposit into the bank the next morning. One night some thugs decided they would rob the old man who was in his seventies at the time. Dempsey knocked one assailant unconscious while the other ran for his life. The moral of the story is, no, I would not care to "throw down" again. But if that situation developed, there is a good chance someone might take a nap, BUT, if the battle lasted for long, I might introduce the assailant to my friends, Mr.'s Smith and Wesson. :-)

    I served in the USMC, boxed for 7 years as a middleweight, played football, and worked in gas and oil pipeline construction in the mountains. So much of my back, knees, and various issues of that sort are self-inflicted and career related.

    Being on your feet on a hard floor like that really takes a toll on you when you get older. Never bothered me until I got past 55. Maybe I was just too dumb to notice it before then, but believe me I would notice now. You deserve a merit star for holding out for 10 months.
  14. Snow here in Florida yesterday. It melted quickly then turned to ice. My youngest daughter and grand daughter loved it. Grins from ear to ear.
