    Moving Target

    Don't forget to teach her to say, Mmmmmm!," and to smack her lips when she enjoys the taste of something. That was almost as fun as teaching the nieces to smack the table top and say 'Service! Service! Service!' (when they were little, it came out as Yah! Yah!).

    Who says there is no "I" in TEAM.

    My youngest niece has that on a T-shirt (that I got her for her birthday a few years ago). She wore it to softball practice a LOT. Rumor has it that it's available from an outfit called Bad Idea T-shirts.

    So that's where it went.

    I'm worse with tools than I am with nuts and bolts.

    Killer Cat ???

    A hundred pound house cat is as scary of a thought as a 100 pound Chihuahua. Not only would we not be on top of the food chain but bears would tremble at the mere sound of a yapping of the Chihuahua in the distance and sharks would stay out of the shallows.

    Teenagers Baffled by Rotary Phone

    Try to explain correction tape to a 6 year old. My eldest niece found some correction tape in the desk drawer and asked what it was. She couldn't understand why we just didn't hit the backspace button instead.

    Run, Girl.

    Yeah, I think she was still a Junior. I was a conventioneer at Mule Camp and heard a shotgun firing like it was attached to a metronome. Needless to say, I walked over to see what was going on and got there just in time to see a little girl dressed in purple single loading a '97.

    Run, Girl.

    I decided that I wanted to be able to shoot like a girl right after I saw Holy Terror shoot for the first time.

    I. Hate. Squirells.

    A&P or the Rainbow would be the best bet.

    I. Hate. Squirells.

    Got over run by tree rats a few years ago. They ruined over 140 pears off of our trees in less than 3 days. One decided it was funny to move to the tree over the dog run and sit there while my bulldog barked at him and, after he'd had a few nibbles, throw the pear at the dog. Got 3 of them with the Crosman 180 before my new neighbors moved in- a family of hawks. Haven't had a problem with tree rats since.

    Make Sure Your Dog Is Tied

    The dog belongs here, they don't. Walking into my house and making demands is a good way to ensure a short visit.

    black panther info needed

    That's what the folks at Auburn told the mechanic working with us after he said he saw one. I worked for a project that was a joint venture of the National Center for Asphalt Technologies and the Auburn University School of Engineering for almost 2 1/2 years back in the early '00's driving a big rig in an asphalt wear study. Basically, we drove super heavy trailers over a closed track made up of test sections of various asphalt compounds to replicate 20 years of normal wear in a little over 2 years. There was a mechanic on site for every shift in case of breakdown or blown tires. This place is built so that 4 over the road trucks pulling triples (3 30 foot trailers) that are around 120 feet long total vehicle length and weighing in the neighborhood of 160,000 pounds can park and still have plenty of room to maneuver without taking each other out, so there's a big expanse of concrete with a building holding a lab and a shop for the mechanics to pull the trucks in to work on them. One night, one of the mechanics- who was from hills outside Chattanooga and was a life long outdoorsman- came out of the office and entered the shop. The bay doors were open and saw it walking across the parking area about 30 feet from the door. The man's seen wildcats, bobcats and big house cats before and I saw him a couple minutes after the incident because it shook him enough to call us in off the track. The bay doors stayed closed at night after that if he was on duty. Jaguar isn't a reasonable option for what he saw- under lighting on a concrete slab at least 75 yards from any cover taller than planted sod- since it happened in Opelika, AL (that's at least 3 states and a crossing of the Mississippi away from known any historic jaguar habitat much less their current range). If you have a map handy, it's just off I-85, exit 62 on a county road between US280-431 and AL169. I know that jaguars roam but I don't see one getting way over a 1000 miles from the home range- crossing a half a dozen major travel arteries, the Mississippi and there's no telling how many other rivers- without a soul seeing it until it got to Opelika that night.

    Bama vs Clemson...

    Geeez right back at you. I wasn't talking about a North-South thing. It's a Kentucky thing- which is what I was- mostly- poking fun at. Those folks are plumb rabid about basketball and have been for generations (hence the Bear Bryant reference as an example).

    Bama vs Clemson...

    My advice is to stay north of the Ohio with that kind of attitude. Folks have disappeared in Kentucky for a whole lot less than slighting college basketball. Bear Bryant won an SEC Championship at UK in football and got a gold watch. The basketball team won the SEC Championship that year, too. The coach got a new Cadillac. Basketball season is a primary reason for SEC teams not to run up the score on UK when playing them in football. If we do, then they will return the favor come basketball season and embarrass us in our own auditoriums.

    Bama vs Clemson...

    Not as big a one as being 92nd out of 130 teams in defense. They ain't the only team in the country with a good quarterback and some decent receivers.

    Who would it be?

    Depends on if it's the North Slope Natural Spring Water company putting out something marked (clearly but in small print) Bottled Water or if they are claiming it was spring water when it wasn't.
