RE: College Football Is Just Around The Corner, Can't Wait!

Well, it sounds like college football is getting all shook up in the near future!!! Texas and Oklahoma want to join the big boys of the SEC. I foresee a lot of changes in most of the conferences if all survive the shakeup. Is your school or conference talking changes?

RE: College Football Is Just Around The Corner, Can't Wait!

Steveh27, sounds like a good reason to stay home and watch Tv... I am 71, bad knees, had quad bypass several years ago, arthritic joint plus my tired bony butt does not like sitting in those hard seats in stadiums. Used to love going to all types of sporting events, but finally gave it up. Give me a big screen TV, big plate of hot wings and Diet Coke and I am satisfied. Its he!! getting old.....

RE: College Football Is Just Around The Corner, Can't Wait!

Talking about College football, I am not sure I like all of this "transfer portal" stuff going on in college sports. Players really don't have to make a commitment to a school anymore. Don't like your playing time, pick up and go somewhere else. I have to check the roster once a month just to try to keep up with changes on a team....

RE: College Football Is Just Around The Corner, Can't Wait!

Yes bagman, you have been missed lately! I thought you would have been giving us at least weekly thought during the CWS. Looks like the SEC continues to romp over the rest of the free world in dominating College sports... Your thoughts are graciously welcomed.....

College World Series

Not one peep from anyone about the CWS..... I thought for sure there would be some conversation about it. With the wide range of teams from different areas areas and conferences nobody was cheering on their team. It was a good series and it shows once again that the SEC dominates....

RE: New F-150 Electric P/U

Well, I didn't fill in all the info. We don't own any type of unit currently, maybe in the future. My daily driver is a F250 Super Duty, CC, V-10, 2WD. I am planning on downsizing in the near future. DW daily is a Buick Encore. We like to make trips in the truck, car is a little small. We make the Texas trip every two or three months, to see the grands. First question, when are all these charging stations going to be installed, who is paying for the stations, how much will a charge cost. We all know the power grids in Texas are about maxed out, how much is a home charger installed cost? I don't see a electric truck in my future.... Son does not have a charger at his home either, you think he might install one for me.

New F-150 Electric P/U

OK, saw the ad on television for the Electric F-150, not really impressed. 300 mile average distance traveled on a charge, then charge overnight and ready for another 300 miles. I live in Central Arkansas, my son lives in Rockwall, Texas, I calculated my mileage and come up with total distance of 327 miles. Not counting off and ons for potty breaks and he lives a few miles off I-30, I rounded it up to 350 miles. Now if I drove the elec. truck, I would have to find a place between Greenville and Rowlett to charge and spend the night. Why would I want one of these trucks?

RE: SPAM-alama-dingdong

I love when this subject pops up! ??. I sing the praises of SPAM all the time. I am 71, in fair health, no cholesterol problems or high blood pressure. I have eaten SPAM as far back as I can remember. It has seen me through some lean times and the good times. I have carried it with me in the single serve foil packs on over 15 mission trips to Central America. I can truly say it has kept me from going hungry a few times. I DO NOT eat rice or beans fixed any way you fix them. I make a meal of SPAM and crackers if that is all I can get. The only SPAM I don't care for is the barbecue flavored. I used to love to take a can of SPAM to the deer stand for lunch. Open it up, take out the hunting knife, cut it up in the can and have a meal.... The good old days. ?

RE: Coffee Survey

Folders Classic Roast made in a currently owned Black & Decker drip coffeemaker. Also made in the Mr. Coffee til we kill one with much usage. Kids gave us a Kuerig one Christmas, beside costing arm and leg for pods, taste just not there. We usually make two 12 cup pots every morning, So you figure the cost of K-cups each day....

If you have been waiting on your stimulus check...

you may get one like this... We purchased our house 40 years age from a widow woman. I know she passed 4 or 5 years later. The other day I picked up the mail and included was an envelope from the IRS payment center addressed to the poor dead person, with our address on it. I know the Government has not been sending her a SS check here, and she can't be filing annual income tax for at least 35 years. I wrote all over the envelope Return to Sender and Not this Address and put it back in the mail box. So, if you are still waiting, tell them you died, you might get it faster...

RE: Questions for Veterans

Have been a Veteran for 50 years now, have had various items of apparel with some type of military reference on it all these years. NEVER had a off-hand remark or comment made to me ever! Wear it proudly and if anyone asks or comments about it, that is your chance to explain your pride and support of you grandson-in-law. It is a free country for a reason you know.....

RE: Moderna vaccine (Personal experiences)

OK, had my 2nd Moderna shot Sunday at the VA. First shot, no side effects except a sore arm the next day. Second shot was Sunday at noon, did not feel a thing until I woke up Monday morning. Sinus problems, aches, and very sleepy all day. Got home and took Tylonol and crashed. Woke up this morning feel fine. DW had her first shot last Friday, no side effects at all....

My DW exciting Birthday event

Friday, my DW celebrated a birthday, (I will not divulge which one), but it started bright and early. Our twelve year old grandson was out of school and arrived about 7:30AM. We got dressed up and took Granny to get her first Covid shot. She took it like a trooper, and we hit the road again and traveled to another town for some Popeye's Chicken! Since the dining room is still closed, we had to get it to go. Arrived home, ate lunch and she was feeling fine. Later, I was holding back for the big finale, I got in the kitchen and whipped up a batch of Toll House cookies with mini M&M's instead of plain chocolate chips.... She is the Queen... ??????

RE: Symbiotic Relationships for Mutual Survival

Double what Crowe said about undiagnosed condition. Had a friend with bipolar disorder. He did not receive any medical help until later in life. He had many jobs, many wives and made and lost many friends over the years. It is a very hard road to travel and a good friend to encourage them to seek help, hang in there and be a friend....

RE: Do you know....

DKean, well I think I am out of the woods, (or should I say snow), for the time being. Today so far the high is 56 deg. And a lot of the snow is gone. I have had enough snow for this year, thank you. ??????

RE: Do you know....

way2roll, gave trying to play tennis years ago. I do have a badminton set laying around but I don't think they will support 240 pound plus of me, I will just stagger along..... ????

Do you know....

How hard it is to find a pair of snowshoes in Central Arkansas? Seriously, not often we get a 12 to 14 inch combined snowfall. Went out for the first time today (since Monday) cleaning off vehicles, and such, tough walking around. Side note, we received mail delivery today, first since last Saturday, 6 days total. Not really worrying, supposed to be near 60 deg. By Wednesday.....

How would you answer this question ?

I was in line at Best Buy Saturday waiting to pick up my laptop after repairs. Two mid-twenty somethings were in line in front of me. I wear a ball cap with my Unit patch from my time in Vietnam. One of the young men asked if I was a Veteran and if I had served in Vietnam. I replied in the positive and he said his friend was currently in the Air Force NG. He then asked me a question I had never been asked, "what was it like over there?". The only answer I could think of to make any sense in the minute or two we would have together was, "it was hot!". How do you explain a life experience in a minute or two?

A shout-out to a deserving School..

In these days of madness, disfunction and virus shut-downs, I want to say thank you. My grandson attends Rockwall High School in Rockwall, Texas. He loves school, he loves football, he loves music. He is also Autistic, he struggles with reading and his speech is sometimes hard to understand. He was allowed to join the football program in his Freshmen year. He attended every practice, every game for four years. The Coaches have worked with him, his teammates and fellow students have accepted and embraced him and he has enjoyed his school experience. Rockwall made it to the semifinals of their conference championship this year and lost the game by three points. My Grandson had the experience a lot of High School football players never get. I want to say "Thank you" to the Coaches, Football team, students and Administration for giving my Grandson a true experience he will never forget....
