New addition to the blog.

Its Official!

Long Range is now a "Troll Abortion Site"! (Look to the sidebar).

Troll posts will be aborted at the discretion of the blog administrators.

We believe that this is a decision between the blog administrators and their creator.

So if you feel like trolling this blog, go ahead, make the post long, we enjoy it more that way.

OK, Nanc; fire up the shop vac for a test run!

vaarrRRROOOOOOOOO(rattle, rattle)ooooOOOOOOOOOOOOOOMMMMMmmmm....

Hmmm, that one must of had a copy of the Communist Manifesto in its pocket!

Special thanks to my best friend on the Internet, Beakerkin of The Beak Speaks, for the concept.

Any of our friends that wish to use this image may do so. If you need help to put it in your template, let me know.

Just remember to clean the filter regularly. Gets awful stinky if you leave particles, like Communist Manifestos and other organic debris to molder!

tmw

FLORIAN said...

Cute Nanc, very cute! So how will you dispose of the rotting troll carcasses?
Fertilizer perhaps?

Warren said...

Florian,
We Email them to DU. Nobody notices the stench over there.

LOL

nanc said...

it wasn't my idea, flo! warren came up with this on a cue from beak - take it up with them - i didn't even know we were pregnant!

drummaster2001 said...

warren:

lol.

love the new sidebar.

i think beamish now has some competition for claims to the top art comedy if you keep this kind of stuff up.

btw, is it just my computer or did the text get a lot bigger?

nanc said...

yeah, drummaster - next warren will want us to start calling him doctor...

Warren said...

Thank you, DM.
Yea, I increased the text font size. Nanc, was having to use a scanning electron microscope to read it so out of pity....

Nanc said,
" yeah, drummaster - next warren will want us to start calling him doctor..."

I'm holding out for an OBE, (Order of the British Empire).

How does Sir Warren sound?

LOL

nanc said...

i don't know - it kind of gets stuck in my esophagus...no, definitely not - i cannot say it!

lady nanc

Mr. Beamish the Instablepundit said...

I'm morally opposed to abortion. Why not a good old fashioned firing squad?

Elmer's Brother said...

Sir Warren, love the shop vac it's great. Is it a wet vac too, I hear those Commies often have wet dreams too.

Elmer's Brother said...

my last comment was so grammatically wrong - ha so is this one, oh well

the merry widow said...

13, the number of death! And really bad luck! ROFL!!!
Good morning all! G*D bless all with a wonderful day, mine includes rain(hopefully!)

tmw

nanc said...

i don't know beamish - i'm kind of fond of the guillotine - very sharp and to the point every single time!

F.B. Jones said...

I hope it is a wet/dry vac for all of the bed wetting commies.

Warren said...

Beamish,
I believe that, unlike a baby, trolls are indiscriminate clumps of proto-thought and not fully formed.... Well, whatever it is that trolls form.

If we used a firing squad, we'd have to clean up blasted trolls and spent shell casings!

EB,
Sir Warren, does have a nice ring to it!

Yes, it was necessary that we use a wet-vac. Trolls do tend to leave a nasty mess.

Nanc,
Are you sure that isn't a hair ball stuck in your throat?

(put down that 3 iron!)

TMW,
13 is the actual count of aborted troll posts, all from one troll. Multiple abortions.

Good morning all!
:^)

themerrywidow said...

Persistent little booger! Sir Warren, I'm trying to get the cookbook organized, R.M. is getting on our cases and I for one don't need to be serenaded by him(r.m.) at this hour, so what is your specialty? Monkeys and other exotics? Lady Nanc could have the salads, especially for uninvited guests! What is Mr. Beamish's( excuse me, Mr. Pres!) specialty?

the merry widow said...

Sir Warren- An idea, how about different color hair for different trolls? Or is that too much?

tmw

nanc said...

13 of the same troll aborted...dayam they don't die easily do they?

cube said...

Very cute. I'm glad I don't have a big problem with trolls. I don't get enough traffic to pick them up.

cube said...

Then again, some more traffic would be nice *sniff*

nanc said...

quit your blubbering, cube - i'll see what i can do about getting you a troll or seven. now stop - people are watching!

Always On Watch said...

What a great addition to the sidebar! My sidebar is too full, I think, to add one more thing.

Duck is still quacking at my blog, but he's not vile--usually.

13 troll abortions? All the same troll? Has to be an alien life-form.

Brooke said...

Warren & Nanc, that's hilarious! I'm blogrolling you today; sorry I'm such a slug and it took me so long!

I'll be cleaning and redecorating my sidebar today, too. Thaks for the pic!

nanc said...

oh, brooke - you're not a slug - snails are much better looking...and tasty too!

thanks for the link!

Mr. Beamish the Instablepundit said...

Warren,

If you clean up troll corpses, poor defenseless maggots will starve to death.

I'm not sure you've thought this through.

cube said...

I don't want trolls, I want more traffic. Is that so wrong?

the merry widow said...

Cube- It's not so wrong, everybody needs love. Just be careful, you don't want to get involved with the type that would take advantage of you! After all, your a lady, not a tramp. Be careful, be safe, have fun, but remember what kind of community you come from. We have standards you know!

tmw

the merry widow said...

Mr. President, sir, DU has many corpses, so the maggots should feel right at home. Plus the swarms stay over there!

tmw

nanc said...

okay cube...then i'll stop troll shopping for you...you have a wondy blog and i'm sorry i didn't discover it sooner - but i have a feeling all that is about to change. besides that - i didn't see anything disagreeable at your blog to entice trolls. you must have the troll repellant out!

the merry widow said...

Cube- I've visited, but since I can't comment ... did like coldwater though!

tmw

FLORIAN said...

Mr. Beamish said he's morally opposed to abortion--so why not the firing squad? LOL
So am I (opposed to abortion), but it just sounds so perfect for a troll.
Guillotine perhaps?

Elmer's Brother said...

How about using the Sword of Saladin to due them in. I hear you can get one in a cracker jack box these days.

Elmer's Brother said...

"do them in"

MissingLink said...

Killing a troll is always a good thing, like any other cleansing procedure.
Have you tried chlorine to purify the filter?

drummaster2001 said...

warren:

i like the sir. it suits you. the only thing is you need to be called sir warren, the axeman.

nanc:

only newer guillotines worked the first time. after heavy usage, the blade dulled so people who were going to be executed actually prayed for it to work on the first go around.

nanc said...

eeeeeeeek drummaster! that sounds positively gruesome - something all good trolls deserve!

the merry widow said...

Couldn't happen to a nicer person as my old dad would say!

tmw

beakerkin said...

Troll abortions is the perfect concept for unwanted posters who foul our boards with ethnic slurs, vulgarity and stupidity. The poster is unwanted and these posters have no right to tell us what to do with our blogs. It is a matter of privacy between blogmaster shopvac and his or her creator.

I did not intend this for anyone other then Socrates but John Brown got aborted around twice and Weasie got aborted for posting to Socrates.

drummaster2001 said...

they deserve cruel and unusual punishment.........then dulled guillotine.

Elmer's Brother said...

(In my best english accent)

I dub thee Sir Loin of Beef er uh I mean

Sir Osis of Liver er uhhh

nanc said...

ODL - now i know this blog won't be big enough for the both of us! i think i'll call him sir plus!

Elmer's Brother said...

Sir Warren am I in trouble?

nanc said...

e.b. - it appears sir cuss has abandoned his post!

I'll apologize now then. Sorry Sir Warren (said in the same way they said "the warrant" on where in the world is carmen san diego)

FLORIAN said...

La Shawn Barber has a great post about immigration Nanc. I left my 2 cents worth on her blog.

nanc said...

ah-oh....

the merry widow said...

We are quite a, umm, yeah we are!
Warren got your e-mail, I didn't know how to cut out the top part, but my friend is bipolar and can't take meds. She calls me long distance to help her, so I was asking for help to pray for her! Thanks! The picture cracked me up. Thought you might enjoy and share for a laugh!

Good night all!
tmw

Elmer's Brother said...

Sir Warren I uh just...red hair just doesn't work for me so if you decide to well you know could you please put a bald troll up there.

Nanc made me do it anyway.

nanc said...

e.b. and tmw started it!

however, i'm putting myself on restriction for two days. i'll take a bald troll too.

the merry widow said...

When I was little, my troll had light brown hair! I'm not going on restriction Nanc, and you can't make me! Thuuupt!;P

tmw Good morning all!

beakerkin said...

Nanc when you get a chance look at the Esther interview . Why do women find men in masks irresistable ? Could Mr Beamish be a budding Soap Star.

nanc said...

guess what? i'm at work on my new computer!

FLORIAN said...

How's the new comp working Nanc?
I need one too.

Always On Watch said...

Nanc,
New computer? What'd you get?

the merry widow said...

Nanc- Good morning! wanted to see if you still have your little addition? If you do, how's she doing?

tmw

nanc said...

E.B. - DID YOU SEE WHAT WARREN DID TO US? SIDEBAR - SIDEBAR - SIDEBAR!

the merry widow said...

Bwahahahahahahahaaaaaaaaaa! Good job, Sir Eos!

tmw
P.S. E.B. and Nanc- never looked better!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Elmer's Brother said...

ROTFLMAO!

tmw,

You're right, I have never been accused of being cute and my wife makes me wear a bag over my head on date night.

It's all your fault Nanc.

Sir Warren,

I suppose I deserve it, but I promise I won't hold it against you. Just please do me a favor and make a post about BIG guns or scratching yourself, the skirts are taking over.

Elmer's Brother said...

Sir Warren,

As long as you didn't give me a landing strip we're good.

nanc said...

e.b. - don't give warren any ideas...

Elmer's Brother said...

nanc you get a brazilian or whatever it is

John said...

That could really come in handy.

nanc said...

e.b. - what?

well, john - at least your trolls are somewhat well behaved - we like well-behaved trolls...well, we don't LIKE them like them - you know what i mean.

Elmer's Brother said...

nanc don't go feigning some kind of false modesty now

nanc said...

dude (flo) - dudette (aow) - it's a dell with internet so fast that the site i want is up and going even before it hit the enter button!

nanc said...

e.b. - i'm not feigning! my modesty, like my avatar, are real - how about a hint?

Elmer's Brother said...

forgive me Nanc let's just say it's a wax job

Anonymous said...

Wow! has your site come a long way! e-mail me again shaw135@hotmail.com i have a question to ask...
{elijah}

the merry widow said...

E.B.!!!!!!!!! How horrid, why would Nanc want to go through something like that! I "thought" you were a "brother", yuck! I hope Warren throws the book at you, perv!

tmw

Elmer's Brother said...

sorry I made a mistake I apologize I was trying to be funny and it wasn't.

Please forgive me.

nanc said...

e.b. - well, the native american genes in me took over a long time ago so i'm nearly like a hairless chihuahua everywhere but the raggedy mop i used to have on my head until warren balded me up! have always wanted to shave my head and will do it before my life here ends - my husband looks purty with a shiny head and i will send my dreaded locks (NOT DREADLOCKS) to "locks for love".

as for waxing - OWWWWWWCHHHHHHH - NYET!

good to see you elijah - everybody's been asking about you.

nanc said...

quit apologizing e.b.! that's an order! now buck up - people are watching, man...

the merry widow said...

You are forgiven my brother, won't even be mentioned again. Was that to get back at the ladies having all the fun?

tmw

Elmer's Brother said...

all comedy aside if I offended anyone I do apologize

Elmer's Brother said...

to be honest I didn't really know what it was exactly, I had just heard the name and then when I looked it up I said holy cow, I am in for it now

nanc said...

...and, it was very funny!

we have some friends and the husband looks like a yeti - hair everywhere - and when they were getting married and going to cancun on their honeymoon, she decided to hotwax his back - ALL AT ONCE! hearing the story from him is just about the funniest thing you've ever heard.

do not allow your wife to do this. kill her if you have to, but do not let this happen.

the merry widow said...

Nanc- My daughter watches that Top Model show, some ladies are really stunningly beautiful bald! It definitely is startling, but the elegance is undeniable. Go for says I!

tmw

nanc said...

f.y.i. - this is supposed to be done in small sections, treating each section as you go along. lest you end up with freshly plucked chicken skin!

Elmer's Brother said...

tmw said we couldn't mention it again so I am taking her advice

nanc said...

what does she know - she has a 15 year old daughter who is engaged for crying out loud! and besides that - she's grounded!

nanc said...

besides - she's not the boss!

the merry widow said...

E.B.- Chill bro, nobody is going to disown you, should have seen what I wrote after Nanc linked to a site with "merry widows", I was sure I was banned for a month! I was also sure she wouldn't let me be her fan club anymore! So, don't let it out but Nanc(and I) are rather forgiving. Hey we might need it sometimes ourselves!

tmw

Elmer's Brother said...

well I am gonna go burp and scratch in peace then

the merry widow said...

By the way, my daughter is being courted! And his mother has promised to give him her 7 carat diamond as an engagement ring for her. What can I say, this is my retirement we're talking about, I've been promised a house and a Mercedes.

tmw

themerrywidow said...

Poor dear, all these women folk addling your brain!

tmw

nanc said...

e.b. - pull my finger!

tmw - golddigger...

Elmer's Brother said...

tmw - My daughter read a book about courting vs dating.

I have only known you guys for awhile so if you were yanking my chain you got me good.

the merry widow said...

Actually my daughter is being courted, which is biblical. I hear big promises because the young man in question is the son of a heart surgeon, and he wants to be one also. I'm not holding my breath!

tmw

elmers brother said...

the book my daughter read was called "I kissed dating Goodbye" by Josh (I can't remember his last name)

Always On Watch said...

Bald trolls??? Wax jobs?

BWAHAHAHAHA!

Can you believe this thread, all morphing from troll abortions?

Nanc,
I've known for a while about your sense of humor (similar to mine).

But EB??? Having a little vocabulary accident? Then apologizing? Hehehe.

Warren,
Your team blogger has certainly livened up your site. Did you expect all these outbursts?

the merry widow said...

No, I can't remember who wrote it, but the concept is incredibly beautiful in action! It involves a great deal of friendship, vows of chastity, and really getting to know the other person without having to go out and spend money or try to impress by stuff. The parents are involved and in agreement with each other! It is a very different experience as a parent.

tmw

the merry widow said...

AoW- Why do you think I hang out here so much? It's a great stress reliever! It's a great group of people, like sitting around the living room with your friends and laughing yourselves silly!
Glad you decided to drop by!

tmw

Warren said...

Hello everyone!

I've decided that the "troll" which kisses my.... uh.. er. That is, gives me the most effluent praise, shall be removed from the tally.

The other shall be "enhanced"!

BWAHAHAHAHAHAHA

Warren, Lord High Executioner (chop chop)

PS I'm rounding up images for a post on guns.

the merry widow said...

What?????????? You didn't like Sir Men? Geeeezzzz, can't please some people. Okay, here goes.
Oh high and most pusilloumous lord, may you have mercy on us, your most humble and unworthy subjects beg your ear!(Eeeww!) We crave thy most noble attention to our pleas for pardon, though we do not deserve your least glance!
Okay, can I go untangle my fingers and baaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaarf?

tmw

nanc said...

stop your groveling tmw - sir pent up anger is but a harmless figment of your imagination. now quit - people are looking! you people are so obvious.

the merry widow said...

I'm trying to save you from the Executioner! So shush!

tmw

Always On Watch said...

TMW,
I'm making a few blog rounds this evening, and this site is a must-do, especially as a stress-reliever.

Warren said...

TMW,
I could have lived with the "(Eeeww!)" but the "baaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaarf" was a definate turn off!

Woman! Get thee to a vomitorium!!!

beakerkin said...

I guess Troll abortions, dog eating
and Visine Republicans are going to take the blogoshere by storm.

Warren said...

Well, when the excrement hits the air impeller, I'm pointing my finger at you!


LOL

Elmer's Brother said...

OH wise and noble Sir Warren and member of one of our most noble groups of Americans

(Nanc and TMW get thee behind me...with all the other sharks)

I humbly take responsibility for my actions, as intolerable and grotesque as they were and beseech you as one who comes from a long line of uhhh well anyway please pick me

the merry widow said...

Sir Eos, I had already left for a shower, so I missed the instructions. Since I haven't even finished my coffee yet, you're outa luck!
EB-
Oh the shark has
pretty teeth dear
and he(she) keeps them
pearly white...
Warren- The eeewww, was for holding your ear, not attatched!
And the baaaaaaaaarf, was so Nanc wouldn't shave my head!

the merry widow said...

Thanks for not letting Nanc shave my head!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Bwaaaaahahahahaaaaaaaaaaaa!!!!!!!!!!!!!heehehehehehaahahaha!
ROFLMAO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!Oh Warren that is too funny!
Thank you!

tmw
still lol!

beakerkin said...

I don't think I ever anticipated people asking to be troll aborted .

Kelly said...

I have been reading through this thread on this blog...

I must get myself back off the floor. I laughed myself right off the chair.

Thanks for the laughter!

Elmer's Brother said...

Kelly it's funny until someone loses an eye or in my case climbs in a corner in the fetal position looking for any remaining vestige of manhood

beakerkin said...

I never thought that this gag would prove so popular. I can just see Ducky asking to be aborted.

the merry widow said...

EB- I thought you said you had recovered! What happened? You saw my trollie and relapsed? You really should do something for your nerves, oh and EB, heeheehee, you get to spend ETERNITY with Nanc, AoW AND ME! Won't that be fun? Oh, come on EB, don't go catatonic on us!

tmw

Elmer's Brother said...

That was my codition yesterday and I thought it might generate some sympathy from Sir Warren.

I can hardly wait for eternity, but I plan on spending the first bit of it in recovery.

the merry widow said...

Poor EB, You have fallen amongst "bad company"! Want to run? To late! You'll be fine, we like you, so we won't hurt you, much, or not! Nanc is a contrary you know.

tmw

Elmer's Brother said...

It's nice to be liked, I just wish this nervous tick I picked up yesterday would go away.

nanc said...

i know what you mean e.b. - i like my nervous ticks sedated.

Elmer's Brother said...

Really I am okay, I do suffer from war wounds and they often effect my judgement.

I have a shell the size of a fist in my head. Pork Chop Hill. The only way I can make this toupee to stay on is by magnetizing the entire upper left quadrant of my skull, so you just go ahead and give me a hard time.

My ear canals are very sensitive. They're stainless steel. Took a bullet in Corregidor. Passed straight through.

My eyes are ceramic. Caught a bazooka round at Okinawa.

I've personally flown over 194 missions and I was shot down on every one. Come to think of it, I've never landed a plane in my life.

Oh, there's one more thing. (EB gets accidentally hit by a metal pipe with a loud ringing sound). I'll get that. It's probably for me.

Elmer's Brother said...

I like my nervouse ticks with A-1.

nanc said...

soooo - you're telling us you're nearly a hundred years old with small children in the house who like to watch barney and teletubbies? SPUNKAAAAYYYYYY!

Nanc,

Do you always make fun of disabled vets?

F.B. Jones said...

Hey kids,
I found a computer to use today. Just wanted to say hi. I left a comment on my last post on my blog. I hope to be back as soon as possible. I am having TDs from lack of blogging.

Elmer's Brother said...

fb,

That veiled reference to me acting my age will not bode well for you. LOL

Elmer's Brother said...

and it's nanc and tmw that started the WHOLE thing anyway, I am just and innocent bystander...ask Sir Warren

the merry widow said...

Basket case, Warren we got a basket case! Need a case of A-1 sauce to go! Sorry but your blog is never going to be the same(or sane) again!

tmw

Elmer's Brother said...

tmw

you made me this way

Elmer's Brother said...

that might have been little big horn where I caught the bazooka round

the merry widow said...

EB- You are now dubbed the "Energizer Bunny"! He just keeps going and going and goi... right off the cliff!

tmw

the merry widow said...

As for acting our ages, are you crazy? Why would we want to do something like that? Fussy, fussy, fussy!

bunch of buttkissers...i just don't know how else to say it!

themerrywidow said...

Who's butt, Nanc?

tmw

Elmer's Brother said...

tmw -

That's funny that's what my wife calls me too...wink

the merry widow said...

Don't tell me you went bonkers at home too! Good grief EB, your lucky to still be talking!

tmw
P.S. Unless she's laughing herself silly over our shenanigans!

the merry widow said...

Warren- I hope you're enjoying this! They better not try to make a movie, we'd be "duck soup"!

tmw

Elmer's Brother said...

BTW the shark reference was an abbreviation for

butt sharks

sheesh get over it Sir Warren is picking me

Elmer's Brother said...

Unless she's laughing herself silly over our shenanigans!

What shenanigans?

the merry widow said...

What's not shenanigans! Remember "Mack The Knife"? Right "behind" you EB and your fuzzy bunny tail!

tmw

Elmer's Brother said...

Well I take all this very seriously.

Mack the Knife - was that part of your generation, Bobby Darin wasn't it?

I just got a Tom Jones CD. It's cool.

the merry widow said...

Oh yeah! Got such a chuckle whenever I heard it. Tom Jones is very good, I liked Neil Diamond and Gordan Lightfoot and the Monkees! Go figure! What's on your TJ cds?

tmw

Elmer's Brother said...

It's a best of

What's new Pussycat, Delilah, It's not Unusual, She's a Lady to name a few.

I was joking with the generation thing...anyway

Elmer's Brother said...

BTW Tom Jones and the Teletubbies...it doesn't get any better than that

((((((stereophonic))))))

the merry widow said...

Good tracks! Yeah, you should enjoy that very much! As for generations, I bet my 52 yr. old self could sit on you any day of the week! I'm a mom, I know how it's done!

tmw

Elmer's Brother said...

There's only ten years between us.

I actually have eclectic tastes when it comes to music because I am an amateur musician. I like everything from the Andrew Sisters to ZZ Top.

the merry widow said...

I really like classical, have you ever heard of Bond? They are 4 British ladies with classical trainning that have jazzed up the classics! My daughter introduced me to them. Then she runs off with my classical classical cds! What's a mom to do? I also like some big band, that's from my parents.

tmw

Elmer's Brother said...

tmw -

Here is the cover off the TJ CD. You can't see it but the

((((((stereophonic)))))) label is on there.

Elmer's Brother said...

Try this one

the merry widow said...

They came through great! I remember the majority of those from the hits on the radio! Most of them were hits, isn't the cover on the cd funky? Very much from the pre-pc era! Hysterical! Sounds like you picked a winner EB!

tmw

the merry widow said...

For a joke my sonwatched the Laurence Welk show tonight, he liked Tom Netherton's(sic)baritone. Said it was singing and maybe the current crop of "singers" should learn how to actually sing a melody! Hurray, I taught him something, usually he listens to Project 88, Jars of Clay and Casting Crowns, so this was a surprise to hear real singing!

tmw

nanc said...

ODG - WARREN! PLEASE DO SOMETHING - IT'S A RUNAWAY THREAD! I CANNOT TAKE ANYMORE! I'M PUTTING MYSELF ON RESTRICTION FOR ONE SOLID WEEK WHETHER YOU LIKE IT OR NOT! I'LL BE AT FERN'S IF YOU NEED ME...

the merry widow said...

IT'S ALIVE! Nanc leaves and it keeps on going and going and going..., Warren leaves and it gets crazier and crazier and crazier... Don't leave these things alone, they're like fungus! They keep growing and...

tmw

Elmer's Brother said...

thanks nanc tmw and I were getting along just great

I like Casting Crowns and I am a big fan of Christian music as well

One time at church the youth group was having a rummage sale and one lady brought in about 15-20 boxes of records. Someone asked my (I think she was about 13-14) to go get a box of records. She said "What's a record?"

So when we got home I broke out my Billy Holiday album and the record player and showed her what a record was.

Elmer's Brother said...

EB- I figured, it is getting late and I know I am starting to droop! How'd she like the old platters? Mine knew about them because my late kept buying record players to play his old records. Ben had stored a whole bunch of his and mine out in the back porch, in the heat they got warped! Threw out a whole big box. Sad! Some old remakes of the Big Band era from my parents! Why he put them out there I'll never understand! Do you remember 78's? I had some given to me by a cousin, of course the ubiquitous 45's that every teen had. Then 8 tracks, my first stereo system, with the big honker earphones! Simpler days.

2 years ago our youth group did a discipleship weekend and Casting Crowns did a free concert at Manatee Stadium, my son went and loved them! Our youth pastor used to be (still is) a traveling youth evangelist, so we would get student mission groups come in all the time, great teens had a lot of fun with them. Well, I'm about to turn into a pumpkin, so I will leave you all with a very Good Night, sleep well and have a wonderful time at church tomorrow!

I loved the 78's and the 45s. I used to go the store when a new single came out and bought the 45 straight away. I still have quite a few. 8 tracks yeah had one of those and had the Star Wars soundtrack on 8 track and my folks had a Ford LTD with and 8 track in it. Gosh I kind of miss those days.

As far as my daughter goes, I don't think she was too impressed. I must admit I don't miss the way they sounded but it was fun at the time. Digital is definitely the way to go.

I do like some of the old vaccuum tube guitar amps though (this is an analog type of amp)

What are you people doing!

A guy steps out for a smoke, (and a 11 hour workday), and comes back to find you eating the furniture.

50 comment notifications, 50! And all in one thread.

Its a good thing that you don't lick and seal an envelope to send Email, there would be slobber dripping from my computer!

Look what I've been missing out on! A girl can't even take a day off from the blogs without missing out on a runaway thread.

I have an authentic RCA Victrola (circa 1910). It's a wind-up, of course. You should see my collection of 78's! One 78 was my mothers and dates back to 1928--Jimmie Rodgers's "Hobo Bill." My aunt gave me a collection of great stuff--including Brother Andy Griffith's "What It Was, Was Football," and lots of big-band stuff as well.

The old 78's were so thick that they didn't warp much in the heat. I can't say the same for some of my old 33's, which are quite fragile.

i'll be faking a breakdown...

Always On Watch said...

Runaway threads can be fun. See the one that got away from me last summer!

Elmer's Brother said...

don't trolls maintain runaway threads...?????????

Elmer's Brother said...

Does this mean you will pick me Sir Warren?

nanc said...

please pick e.b. so we may end this madness!

nanc said...

aow - that thread had substance!

Always On Watch said...

TMW,
I just saw the addition to the right sidebar. Bwahahahaha!

Elmer's Brother said...

It almost seems hypocritical to call this a runaway thread...I mean it is about trolls...so I don't understand the beef

Elmer's Brother said...

you're just jealous nanc

the merry widow said...

Warren- I kept saying you left us unsupervised in the sandbox, so now you get to sweep up the sand!
AoW- I had fun! You're right about 33's, that was what I had to toss! Isn't that little trollie of me cute? I love it, I figure you only tease the ones you love(wasn't that an old Spike Lee adaptation?)
EB- You're right, Nanc's just jealous that she missed the fun! Just because we played the part of trolls to illustrate Warren's VAC O'DOOM, is no reason to flounce off in a huff! I mean we didn't pour sand in her hair or down her shirt or anything, geez!

Good morning all, G*D bless you and give you a beautiful day!

nanc said...

jealous - HA! i left in a snit!

now, if somebody would just tell me what a snit is....

nanc said...

now, i must go pump up the numbers on my article below this. just in case anybody is wondering where i am.

Warren said...

I don't know what a snit is but I once owned a 63 peugeot.

Elmer's Brother said...

I like my snits with A-1.

Seriously found this in the New England Journal of Medicine.

snit: A condition commonly found among females in which a state of anger is feigned usually in order to manipulate a person of the male gender

Treatment: IGNORE

nanc said...

seven.

warren - i'm having a slight problem with my e-mail this morning so will contact you later regarding photos.

EB:
Your treatment is contraindicated.

NEVER ignore a snit. If the female is in a state of PMS, this could prove fatal.

Instead, treat the snit with a chocolate bar and a "Sorry, dear." Then ignore.

Brooke said...

Oh, sorry. Six, and five

nanc said...

four. i'd prefer a "payday" candy bar for treatment.

Warren said...

That's because you're a contrary.

three

Anonymous said...

two. am not!

Elmer's Brother said...

Brooke what you describe is not a snit. That's a huff.

While suffering from PMS and a snit at the same time is dangerous the offering of chocolate will only relieve symptoms temporarily.

Ignoring a snit will often bring on a huff.
