    Doritos for Breakfast? Wouldn't that leave an orange glow on your teeth all day? Of course, that means you would need plenty of mouthwash, which might be the point! Shaken, not stirred..

    Ya both got it wrong! The TRUE breakfast of champions is beefaroni, sweet tea and chocolate pudding!!!


    and here's a cider on the house, Vol


    1214, do you mind tending bar the rest of the evening? I've gotta go home and study and do these stupid homework assignments.

    Bartending isn't my strong suit, but since I am currently looking for a job, I'll try it! Just don't expect me to get up and dance like those Coyote Ugly girls, or flip and spin bottles like Tom Cruise in that movie. Now, if you need a shot of whiskey, or a cold beer, name your poision, I've got that covered.. If anybody needs me, I'll be in the corner with the help wanted ads and a bowl of Jelly Beans..

    Sweet! Good on ya Cat! I'll have a single malt thanks...

    Funny though, 'closed book'? There are always people at our assessments asking if it's an 'open book'. How can fighting be open book? Some jobs, certainly, for instance computer programing. Got a problem? Find the right book and look up the answer - normal practice. But firefighting? When is there time on the firegrround to go to the library?

    We were told originally that it would be an open-book test since it was only a 2 day med class but....SURPRISE! I found out today that a full 1/3 of the class flunked the practical! That was the easiest part! What did all but 1 forget to do? Clean and prep the area the meds are being applied to!

    Maybe tonight, I can drink enough to unwind and actually get some sleep. (And maybe I'll even try to eat supper tonight ).

    One day a farmer's donkey fell down into a well. The animal cried piteously for hours as the farmer tried to figure out what to do.

    Finally, he decided the animal was old, and the well needed to be covered up anyway; it just wasn't worth it to retrieve the donkey.

    He invited all his neighbors to come over and help him. They all grabbed a shovel and began to shovel dirt into the well. At first, the donkey realized what was happening and cried horribly. Then, to everyone's amazement he quieted down.

    A few shovel loads later, the farmer finally looked down the well. He was astonished at what he saw. With each shovel of dirt that hit his back, the donkey was doing something amazing. He would shake it off and take a step up.

    As the farmer's neighbors continued to shovel dirt on top of the animal, he would shake it off and take a step up.

    Pretty soon, everyone was amazed as the donkey stepped up over the edge of the well and happily trotted off!

    Life is going to shovel dirt on you, all kinds of dirt. The trick to getting out of the well is to shake it off and take a step up. Each of our troubles is a steppingstone. We can get out of the deepest wells just by not stopping, never giving up! Shake it off and take a step up.

    Remember the five simple rules to be happy:

    Free your heart from hatred - Forgive.

    Free your mind from worries - Most never happen.

    Live simply and appreciate what you have.

    Give more.

    Expect less


    NOW ............

    Enough of that crap . . . The donkey later came back, and bit the farmer who had tried to bury him. The gash from the bite got infected and the farmer eventually died in agony from septic shock.

    MORAL FROM TODAY'S LESSON:

    When you do something wrong, and try to cover your ***, it always comes back to bite you.

    You have two choices...smile and close this page, or pass this along to someone else to spread the fun.

    Only marginally better - still easily run down, but yes, thank you that would be wonderful. Unfortunately none in the house so will have to settle for vodka/orange.

    1214, here's your Gent Jack. And good luck at the tournament!

    [QUOTE]

    I'm very pleased to announce that out of a field of at least 47 boats, my partner and myself finished a very respectable 7th place. We placed in the top ten, which means we received a small check for our efforts. This is the first time in ten years of trying that I've been able to take home some money from this benefit tournament. It was one of the first tournaments in the area that I ever fished, before I joined a bass club, so I am beyond happy to finally get a little recognition from it. We had a hard day, fishing after the cold front that brought the Tornados up around Firecat's area. First place had 17.90 lbs, second had just over 12lbs, and we had 10.14 lbs, so we were really pleased at the weigh-in. The kicker, to us, is we caught our 5th fish of our 5 fish limit within sight of the weigh-in, with only 15 minutes of competition left, and everyone watching... I was delivered a bottle of homemade blackberry wine from my cousin, as congratulations! Anybody want some? I'll share!!

    Clost to home, and closest to the "old" style bars of my younger days. Not like the sterile places today with no characther. A lot of Military, Fire, and Police hang there. The wings are the best in the area (my opinion), and they got a great hamburger.

    Their slogan is "To Get a Better Piece of Chicken, You Gotta Be a Rooster!"

    If your in the area stop in for a cool one.

    DON'T TELL THEM "BERT SENT ME" ! They'll stick it on my tab!!! )
