All last night I kept getting woke up from all the ice and limbs around the 'hood falling and expected at any minute for one of the trees to come through my house but by the time 5:30 rolled around, all the ice was on the ground and all our trees still standing.

The dog on the other hand is a little inconvenienced as she is finding it very hard to lay land mines standing on ice!

Does the yard slope one way or the other? Every turd laid would just slide off into the neighbor's yard. Hope your yard isn't the lowest spot on the block...

Last bad ice storm my neighbor's tree, which I had told her to cut down since it was rotten in the middle, broke in half and fell on my truck. Damn thing never ran right again. The other half finally fell over in a bad windstorm, this time onto her house. Poetic justice I thought.

Day 5 of the flu. I made it to work about 840 only to sit in my truck and feel the fever spike again and get sick. This sucks. Anyone have any home remedies to feel like myself again?

I always start taking lots of vitamins when I get sick. Airborne has a nice-tasting dissolvable mix designed to boost the immune system. Could just act as a placebo but I like to think it helps me get over it quicker.

I forgot about airborne. My old boss swore by that stuff. I have been trying the OJ and lots of sleep routine.

Yowsers, I am a light weight so it would put me out for the night that's for sure.

Thanks guys. I just felt like whining for a minute.

It's Wednesday, why are you working? Or why did you go in, I guess I should say.

Isn't that the recipe for cough syrup?

Either way it sounds good

Maybe the insurance will give you a healthy check for far more than the car is worth

Damn, Larry's ride got tattoo'd! That sucks.

Last night a kid at work with a 1-week old Mustang parked under a tree that was starting to sag, he moved it and 2 hours later the whole tree came down, would have crushed his fancy new ride.

I could hear branches snapping and trees coming down all night last night in bed...going to be a long fuggin spring clearing my trails.

I have a spare ADV sticker for your new ride Larry.

PM me. I'll mail it.

(Or EuroTrash night when it starts up)
