God bless John Denver...I loved his sweet bit of revenge. Too bad all of us who suffered the mean spirited female rejections of high screwall couldn't do the same in such a glorious manner. There is some satisfaction in noting that their hotness suffered a severe decline though. Yes, many of them suffered later in life. I never was good looking...maybe in the long run, that's a benefit...

Damned fine pickle raid...weekend at Bernie's country style...The "get back" thing? Mixed feelings. Some "tribute" things are done well, others aren't. So...wait & see?

Kinda like waiting for April fool gag attempts...

Nothing would compare with floating Colins's, all over the screen. Or the "decision" of IMBOC management to change the site into a "ricer" format. 🤪😁 :ROFLMAO::LOL:😁🤪

And who could forget the year the Kuties threw a birthday bash for him?

Back in Circa 2014 we enjoyed a series of kuties on bicycles. I stumbled upon them today and thought it would be a nice gesture to assemble a smattering of those girls in a special April Fool's Day...

KUTIE EXTRAVAGANZA! (no fooling!)

Apparently, they still know how to pull a good April Fools caper in the land down under. Check this one out!

Oh man, here I go and post up a gob of kuties on bicycles and you go and have your eye poked? What a bummer!

Yep, things look mighty fuzzy after a visit to the retina specialist. Not just fuzzy sometimes..eye pain also. Last night was one of those times. So, a wee bit of time on the net, but most of the time was spent plugged into my ipod, listening to oldies as I lean back in the old Laz-e-boy with eyes closed and let the tears flow. Somehow the music help ease the pain.

Now, things in sharper focus...long may young women ride bicycles...:) Loved the Aussie wiener dog gag..

(edit) While we're waiting...a funny pool story from a pool website:

"My friend Frank moved to NC and teamed up with a loud mouthed backer named Joe. Joe carried a shaving bag full of cash and loved to flash it. Frank got to playing a pretty sporty game and took down a couple small local tournaments, so Joe took him out looking for "Action." The first poolroom was good sized with many busy tables and a hamburger cafe. The evening crowd was there. Joe stood in front of the tables and in his "head rooster" way shouted "Listen up! I got a player here willing to play anyone $100 a rack 9 ball." The entire room went silent. Then a small voice from a booth spoke up "I'll try you some." Frank looked and it was Nick Varner. This was 1987. They didn't play. "

Who's Nick Varner?

If you have a couple of hours...Nick vs. Mike...one of the best 8 ball matchups ever! Perhaps the greatest comeback ever.

1990 PURE GOLD TREASURE: Mike SIGEL vs. Nick VARNER - 15th US OPEN 9-BALL - GREATEST MATCH EVER - YouTube

(edit) I'll confess to watching old pool matches...prefer watching them to "woke" millionaires playing sports today while crying about their lot in life and giving us their political viewpoints.
If it weren't for the car racing, I'd probably drop the sports package from our cable subscription.

So? You've got the World Champion Truck Driving B.S.'er living just 350 mi. North of you, too. He didn't just hit balls --- he hauled them! Six times to the Moon and back! 👀🙄

World champion truck driver BSer? Mighty tall claim, there...never met a truck driver who wasn't a BSer. The tale usually began with: "This is no s**t"...unlike a fairy tale, which begins with "Once upon a time..."

Nick Varner? Lets his skill do the talking. If you watched the match above,..you'd see it. But unless you've played at least semi seriously, you have no idea of how difficult it is to concentrate on playing mistake free for a long time. More mentally tiring than any of the traditional sports, which are more reactionary than cerebral.

If I wanted to watch two hours of players having to "play mistake free for a long time" in a contest which involves concentration and is primarily cerebral, I'd probably watch a golf tournament. But, since I don't like golf, I probably won't. No sir, Bull Shipping is my game and I'll just stick with that.



NOTE: The above model is a 1973 White Road Boss tractor, easily one of the worst fleet trucks Wilson Freight ever bought. They rode like an 1848 buckboard and couldn't pull a sick ho' off the pot. The shock absorbers broke off so bad that eventually Wilson stopped trying to replace them. To save money on the fleet, Wilson had ordered them with straight seats (no air-ride) and my dad and several other drivers left on their runs out of S. Charleston, Ohio, but drove straight to the corporate headquarters in Cincinnati to complain directly to the president of the company. Old Dave Gantz said, "If my men want air seats, then they get air seats!" This left Wilson with several hundred brand-new straight seats, one of which my dad took home and installed onto his '41 Case tractor. LOL!

Hang in there Jimbob, The Browns were great once...maybe it'll happen again. World class? Not in the cards for any NFL team, since the rest of the world is too screwed up to learn USA football. Varner? Indeed world class...in his time, beat the best from all over the planet.

Also, Trucker BS is probably world wide, so you're in the running...😁

If a Genie popped out of a bottle and granted me one wish, that I could be best in the world at anything I chose, I seriously doubt that it would "a guy who can hit colored balls with a white ball with a long wooden stick, into one of six holes on a flat felt-covered table." Best drummer? Maybe. Best guitarist? Perhaps. But best pool player? Nah. Even best bullchitter beats that! :ROFLMAO:

Now you did it! The old rhetorical question...what if? So, what if I could be the best in the world at something? I puzzled over it a bit, then decided...nothing! That's it...there is nothing I'd want to be the best in the world at. That would involve some sort of fame. Maybe even among a tiny group of people, like pool players. It's like the young actor who struggles, then reaches fame and fortune. I've noticed they seem to end up complaining about the fame. But of course, they don't complain about the fortune.

I did consider the life of a top pool player. They jet around the planet entering all the prestige events. Staying in hotels, eating various restaurant foods. Seldom in one place for more than a few weeks. Glamourous and exciting? Maybe when you're young. Probably not after the big four-oh...probably before that. Money? Well, it sounds big when young...but even with sponsorship paying all your expenses, maybe $1/4 million per year in winnings. Money Tiger Woods wouldn't pull a club from his bag for. Yet, when it comes down to it, pool is a more difficult game than golf...at the highest level, excellent pool involves far more than a recreational "banger" like me could ever understand. Anyway...the lifestyle would kill me in a short order. No thanks...

No thanks to being the best in the world at anything...

Jimbob...thinking about it, truckers can never be the best BSers...they could never come close to the BS that goes on in the halls of Congress.
