Yes this is a Bar. 8) I want to have a drink & hear some stories. Start as you please but I definitely want to hear the Tale Of The Grown Man's Hissy Fit, presented as an Interpretive Dance. 8) 8) 8) This drink deserves a floor show.

Captain Goddammit - epic FAIL at insults.

Just stand around saying "I'm the Captain, goddammit" and you'll be suitable for this bunch.

I keep wanting to call you 'Skipper'. I'm already a professor, and Dawn Wells (Mary Ann) attended the event in 2012. Now all we need is Ginger (she's MINE!), a couple of Howells, and Gilligan to make the cast of castaways.

Just don't invite me on YOUR three-hour tour if it happens.

Really? Well I've been around this bar a long time. I hear the only place you're ever invited is outside.
So do us a favor and slip into something more comfortable. Like a coma perhaps.
Either that or just haul your fat ass outta here, even if hauling ass requires two trips for you!

Ya know, folks... this is the only bar I have ever spent any time in. I wonder if people in real bars are as nice? When I was younger, real bars were full of cigarette smoke, so that settled that for me. Maybe it's safe now?

Anyway, the story to tell right now is that I have been putting off servicing Millicent for a long time, and now I just read the weather forecast which says HARD FROST night after this! So I'm calmly panicking. Already brought Millicent around the house to the sewer cleanout, so I can flush the tanks out for winter hibernation, and add several gallons of anti-freeze. (Water tank antifreeze.)

So... any chair-throwing bar brawl will have to wait. :mrgreen:

Yep. I'm invited outside because that's where the geology is.

"So do us a favor and slip into something more comfortable. Like a coma perhaps. "

Great insult. Did you think of that yourself or get it out of the Wheaties box?

"Either that or just haul your fat ass outta here, even if hauling ass requires two trips for you!"

Another goodie. Actually, moving a geologist is something you don't want to do. After the house furnishings and the basic necessities, we're loaded up on boxes of rocks and books. Two trips is on the light side.

Professor of geology, eh.... Wonder what you might think of the first chapter in James Michener's novel Hawaii (1959)? He describes the volcanic action that formed the Hawaiian islands, and it is absolutely pure heavenly poetry. Michener was famous for his research -- and Hawaii specially so -- which makes me guess he cannot have it all wrong. Accuracy aside, if you enjoy a good read.... Anybody who enjoys a good read, actually. Michener was hecka storyteller.

Back in Clearlake, Millicent is now safe from frost. Plenty else to do, though. :D

No, I don't remember any such, but I have not read quite all of them. I'm still looking for... oh... what is it... The Source?... That might be a good candidate.
But in general, Michener started his novels far back in time, setting the scene wonderfully. I have The Covenant (South Africa) here.... He starts with... hippos, zebras, lions... and a clan of 25 hunter-gatherers who have a semblance of a social structure and make cave paintings.

I'll have you know that I'm sitting outside, enjoying a bonfire, drinking a cold one, and thinking about you fuckos. Dang! :D

It's good to hear that moonrise is doing well, hopefully he'll start posting again befote long.

..and unjon.. you rock this place, so don't go thinking any different!

*scoots lawn chair back a bit*

Well, I took the day off because the tree guy came over to cut down a big, dead ash tree in the yard. It was too sprawling, and too near the house for me to take it on. So after he climbed it and thinned it down to one 80' upright, he felled it using what he referred to as a 'preesure cut' notch. I'd never seen that; basically a squared off 10" high rectangular chunk cut halfway deep into the trunk, once he had cabled the tree to his trunk's winch to provide tension. A little back cutting, and it came down perfectly between two other trees which otherwise would have been vunerable. Not bad for a guy who's part monkey.

Good un, Goathead!
Now.... Pertaining to the above image, this question: What screen resolution are youse guys using? I'm using 1024 x 768, which lets me read the text, but cuts off something like 40% of the above image.

I find that I can post around 700 pixels wide as my maximum, but I try to keep it down around 500. The above image is 1181 pixels wide.

So what do people use?
