LOL! Trust me...I'd probably win. How about one toe a bit shorter than it could be...got infected, so part went away. Alas, Cindy says I have to stick with podiatrist Dr. Ashdown, and he's no Asian kutie...but he is a skilled foot specialist MD.

$15 for a pair of socks? Well, that's kind of like $10,000 for a wrist watch...not in my future. Hell, earlier today I got sticker shock on the price of T shirts with pockets!

I thought $15 was reasonable. Heck, I was thinking of charging $25 for my famous "Mismatch Madness" socks. I always remember what old P.T. Barnum said. It's true, you know. All you have to do is abandon your scruples. 🤣 A good friend (and lead singer in one of the country bands I drummed for) owned a chain waterbed store and every single display bed in the store had a big sign hanging on the wall near it, saying things like "Drastic Reduction!" "Sale!" "Buy now and save!" "Low, Low Price!" along with a price. Above the bedding area was one that said "Bedding Up To 70-percent Off!"

Well, I was helping him out in the store and one day this tweeby-looking little guy came into the store and started nosing around, looking at everything and closely studying the signs. My buddy finally walked up to him and said, "Hi! I'm Jerry. What can I help you with tonight?" The guy gave him one of those Clint Eastwood looks, cleared his throat and said, "Why do you keep those stupid signs up?" "What do you mean?" asked Jerry. "What I MEAN is I've been coming in here for that past four years and they have never changed! THAT'S what I mean. They don't mean a thing! It's a sham!" Jerry insisted they were legitimate, but the guy just guffawed and walked over to the bedding display. "All right," he said. "Which item in this bedding display is 70-percent off? I want to buy one. Come on, which one is it." Jerry quickly explained, "That pertains to a special set of sheets we had on discount, but we're currently out of stock on those. They were very cheaply made sheets, so you wouldn't have wanted them. What I have here in top-quality sheets that are fairly priced." The guy threw his hands into the air, cussed and stormed out of the store. So, while P.T. Barnum was right, he failed to mention this guy. :ROFLMAO:

And that's all I have to say about that.

In my case, the white crew socks serve a medical purpose...to spot blood from any foot injury. Lucky you...obviously haven't been to any HMO diabetes seminars...usually lectures to a bunch of us old geezers given by a bunch of young medical folks...none of it good news, really.

Good lookin' sox and mocs there...damn, miss wearing my mocs. They were so handy to slip on for quick dashes to the yard. Now, I'd just step sideways out of them, thanks to that snapped tendon that makes clutch work a challenge.

Father time...one cruel bastid!

Now on to a "status" question...Rolex, very much a status watch, right? Not really all that rare, since they make thousands of their "superlative chronometers" per year. That means the movements have been tested to be plus or minus only 3-4 seconds per day. Now that is high accuracy for a watch full of springs and gears.

BUT...my Hamilton Khaki King watch in quartz cost me a BUNCH less than any Rolex...and checking it against cell phone time, it's accurate to within 3-4 seconds per month?

So, why, I ask, is a less accurate Rolex considered higher status than a good quartz watch?

I guess the real question I should ask myself is why do I bother watching watch review videos?

This guy, selling his watches out of the greater Cleveland area, is fun to watch.

The Top Watches of 2020 - 18 of My Favorite Watches I Reviewed in 2020 (Affordable to Luxury) - YouTube
I made it 26 minutes through this watch guy's video and had to bail out. It was that or fall into a deep sleep I may not return from. Jesus, Mary, Joseph and James, this guy is OBSESSED! 👀

DAMN!!!! just now watching it...
Way more interesting than Jimbobs socks, and probably less stinky too!
Stinky? Surely you jest. I'll have you know that my socks are all brand spanking new and of the highest quality, all made from the floor shavings of the factory in Giza, between the Nile River and the Sahara Desert in Egypt. You know, the same place that makes Mike Lindell's famous "Giza Dream" sheets? Yessir, top-of-the-line stuff is all I sell. Stinky............... the nerve!

The Lark not done for a lark...

As sales sagged and resources were drying up, Studebaker waved a magic wand and made a new compact out of an earlier full-size car. The result was an enthusiastically accepted compact with more room inside than the Big 3's full size cars. The new Lark ended it's debut year (1959) by beating Falcon, Corvair and Valiant by a full year and and Studebaker actually ended up breaking even. Even though battling the Big 3 compact competition in 1960, they managed to end that year with a $708,850 net profit, and had added 1,000 new dealerships in the process. Though it would all end badly, finally there was some much-needed hope in the air at Studebaker. Here's today's...

You jumped too fast and have landed in a pile of horse manure. I accidentally posted before I had completely finished working with the aforementioned kuties. Go back. Look again. Bite. Chew. Swallow. Repeat. C'mon, man! Are you a junkie? :ROFLMAO:

Hmm....not a junkie, more like a .......old man with nothing better to do than wait for the klassics to show up. Well, you've redeemed yourself and have regained my support in your run for the highest office in our land. But please, no more posting accidents, because the future of the free world may hang in the balance. :eek:

You know, when the Lark was new, I thought they looked okay...today? Not so much..

Pool hall day..nothin' much to report...did watch a local named Glenn Atwell practice.,,he a former pro..I'd watch him shoot between my times at the table. In two hours, never saw him miss. Why do I bother? Oh yeah..it's fun.

The mustang ran okay in heavy traffic. Good air conditioning is more important than horsepower for the driving I do..

👆 👆 As for the Lark, I always thought it was too boxy and frumpy-looking. Not much you can do with a box, although I saw one that looked a lot better that had fender skirts. Funny, how a little thing like a set of skirts can dress up a pig and make you smile. :)

Women? Pool? Sure, why not... (you have to go to YouTube to see them, though. Some of the easy shots they missed made me think they should've had better chalk) ...

The following is a painstaking recreation of an old posting. As most of you know, the Flickr Cancel Culture Police raided my home one night, booted me out and stole all my pictures. Or so they thought. I, in my infinite wisdom, had saved every single picture they thought they had. So, this posting serves a double role. One, to provide you people enjoyment and fond memories and two, to raise a middle finger to the Flickr Cancel Culture Police. Enjoy!

The "other" Nomad...

Most of us (including myself) have long labored under the impression that the Chevy Nomad and the Pontiac Safari 2-door wagons were basically one and the same. However, we have been wrong. The Safari was a completely different car. It sat on a longer chassis and was wider than its Chevy counterpart. The sporty wagon, introduced along with the Nomad in 1955, ran the same three-year span and was likewise given the axe after '57.

But, when one considers that the Safari body style actually outsold the 4-door versions and was so popular that in '57 they added the "Safari" name to ALL their wagons, one wonders what Pontiac was thinking. Maybe the head honcho was a puritan and regarded the sporty wagon as sacrilegious? We'll probably never know. One thing more, this 4000-lb. behemoth was quick! With the tri-power 270 h.p. option, 0-60 in 10.4 sec. and 17.7 in the 1/4 mile fast (not fast by today's standards, but back then? Whoa!). Here's today's...

HOOT! You picked possibly the two worst women players on youtube, But sort of kind to the eyes. Now if you want to fall in love with a pool kutie, check out Jasmine here...playing around with her little brother Albin..(four minutes) Used to be she'd beat Albin at pool..no more. He's the current world champ. There are videos of Jasmine in serious women's tournament on youtube...yes, she can play while being very kind to the eyes. (edit) Don't try to find any pics of her showing skin tho...you won't. Our loss, eh? Or maybe not..just use your sweet imagination.


Let's see, in my fantasy garage, would I rather have a Lark Wagon or the Pontiac Safari? LOL! Not really much time needed, is there?

Sort of a funny pool tale, recounted by one of the commentators on an old youtube match I was watching.

Commentator was approached by a man in the lobby, who noting his badge, asked:

You here for the pool?

Yep.

Do you know Shannon Daulton?

Yes, he's one of the players. I've known him for years. Good player & a nice guy.

He caused me to quit pool. Beat me so badly, I gave my cues & case away, never played again.

Hey, there's no shame on losing to Shannon, he's a really good player...he's beaten a lot of people.

You don't understand. When he beat me, he was eleven years old! :ROFLMAO:

Time after time, both women missed shots that I know dang well I probably would've made. But hey, it's just a vid.

Be honest. You know you like that Studebaker wagon better. :ROFLMAO:

Neither, I'd rather have Jasmine in my garage, or anywhere else for that matter. 😉
