Nov 28 2018 at 12:34 am It’s just one darn thing after another at the Double-D, isn’t it! kadaka Nov 28 2018 at 12:44 am Skye slips and falls. “Ow, what is… Wait, I know this. Sam!” WayneM Nov 28 2018 at 1:21 am Drive carefully! kadaka Nov 28 2018 at 1:34 am Real Life Real Logic: At supermarket, woman grabs a head a lettuce, $1.69. I tell her there’s a sale, only 99¢/head for 2 or more (small shelf tag). She explains “well we don’t eat that much lettuce” and walks off. TomZ Nov 28 2018 at 2:00 am If by the time they would have finished the first head the second was slimy and needed to be thrown out, the one that was actually used would have been $1.98 instead of $1.69. kadaka Nov 28 2018 at 2:22 am Exactly. As an adaptable omnivore I alter my menu for minimal (financial) resource expenditure. BLTs, soft tortilla wraps, I can easily use up “excess” lettuce. People get entranced by the “logic of logic”. Use only half of the second head and it was worth it. Too Tall Nov 28 2018 at 1:41 am If Sam and Zed are 40 miles from the nearest public road, and Kimiko tells Don Portago to fire up their private jet, who gets to the hospital first? kadaka Nov 28 2018 at 1:45 am Does the ranch helicopter fly at night? John T. Block Nov 28 2018 at 1:48 am Wonder if Zed is gonna get a son, after two girls? GWB Nov 28 2018 at 7:16 am Twins, again – this time boys! Fasten your seatbelt, it’s gonna get bumpy! John Norman Nov 28 2018 at 2:27 am More twins Too Tall Nov 28 2018 at 2:59 am If Jan and Naomi visit Sam and her baby in the hospital, isn’t it about time for them to pack a bag and fill out their own admissions paperwork? kadaka Nov 28 2018 at 3:37 am Seems Jan already had baby Kavanaugh, spotted Oct 11. Pamela Nov 28 2018 at 3:08 am Hmm. A boy, weighing in at 10 pounds, 24 inches long kadaka Nov 28 2018 at 3:32 am And what’s the other one? She’s had twins before. Punta Gorda Nov 28 2018 at 4:17 am “Smith” and “Wesson” That would be a fun set of brothers to deal with. kadaka Nov 28 2018 at 4:22 am Harrington and Richardson, aka Harry and Ricky. Wood Nov 28 2018 at 7:37 am We thought about naming our son Harrison Richard, Harrison cause we like it and Richard after my dad. That would have tormented the poor boy forever: Harry Dick! Pamela Nov 28 2018 at 12:57 pm True. My Grandmother had two sets of twin boys. The first at 46 and the last at 48. 16 children in total and 15 lived to adulthood. Chris Muir Nov 28 2018 at 12:25 pm Actually, a girl! They were joking around that day. Doc Savage Nov 28 2018 at 3:47 am Jumper in the door! kadaka Nov 28 2018 at 3:51 am Green Logic: To preserve human civilization as we know it, top UN scientists say we need to transform our economy and society in the next 12 years It’s become necessary to destroy the civilization to save it? Deplorable B Woodman Nov 28 2018 at 7:04 am “We have our best men on it. Top…..Men…..” JTC Nov 28 2018 at 9:15 am That does tie in nicely with the mining discussion from yesterday. The money quote, as it were… “we need to transform our economy and society in the next 12 years,” Yes, they are concerned with future generations like our new baby(s?) there at the ranch. Their eden depends on a nice crop of eloi to sustain them. The Chinese are certainly evil but very perceptive, even having coined a term for Ocasio and her ilk: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Baizuo Follow the money/power. Always follow the money/power. PaulS Nov 28 2018 at 9:47 am UNTopia! Wonderful. 🙁 UN- Prefix that alters meaning 180 degrees. i.e. Successful vs UNsuccessful Intelligent vs UNintelligent Need I go on? Unfortunately it doesn’t seem to work in the “UN Idiots!” example. They can’t even get that right. Chris Muir Nov 28 2018 at 12:29 pm eon-too long, dude. Punta Gorda Nov 28 2018 at 3:54 am Ahh.. to have a 426 and a competent driver… get you there pronto. JTC Nov 28 2018 at 9:36 am Love me some vintage rods but that Escalade out front will get them there faster, safer, and with an emergency birthing bed in back if needed. OHBridgeGuy Nov 28 2018 at 8:11 pm I think the (more) competent driver will be too distracted by her birthing pains… Deplorable B Woodman Nov 28 2018 at 7:03 am Wasn’t Naomi also pregnant? Chris Muir Nov 28 2018 at 12:26 pm Very. CaptDMO Nov 28 2018 at 8:25 am “Get the car”? I’m so old, I remember (not really)…. Women would rather bear their children in the street than go to the “maternity hospital” in Vienna. Because,….you know….science. Get the car? how about Hunker down, shelter in place, and task the panicky folk with watching large pots of water boil. Delilah T Nov 28 2018 at 8:43 am How come nobody there ( including JO) is a midwife???? JSStryker Nov 28 2018 at 9:05 am Jo could probably become a midwife with 30 seconds of internet access. Chris Muir Nov 28 2018 at 12:26 pm Do NOT read my mind. cmblake6 Nov 28 2018 at 12:57 pm Jo, and some insulated gloves? JSStryker Nov 30 2018 at 7:49 am Slides Chris’ script into a desk drawer… 😀 JSStryker Nov 28 2018 at 9:06 am But then would you want Jo’s -5 degree hands touching you there? 😀 PaulS Nov 28 2018 at 9:32 am Ooooo…. 😉 cmblake6 Nov 28 2018 at 12:58 pm Insulation for the hands. BBQ mitts? Delilah T Nov 28 2018 at 5:19 pm I”m sure that JO has internal control of surface temperatures. Spin Drift Nov 28 2018 at 10:50 am Did we have a baby naming contest and I missed it? So, I submit: for twin boys: Walker and Marshall For twin girls: Bobby Sue and Mary Jo (it’s Texas you know) Spin Chris Muir Nov 28 2018 at 12:27 pm Wesley Richards? Smith Wesson? heh cmblake6 Nov 28 2018 at 12:59 pm I like both of those! Delilah T Nov 28 2018 at 5:22 pm If it’s a girl, Boadicea? “Bo” for short, then you have Bo and Jo. Just an idea. JSStryker Nov 30 2018 at 7:48 am Dan Wesson Owens or Samuel Colt Owens? kadaka Nov 28 2018 at 5:33 pm Billy Jo and Bobbie Sue Chris Muir Nov 28 2018 at 12:40 pm Eon, condense your previous and repost if u like-it was waaaay too long, sorry. JTC Nov 28 2018 at 4:17 pm Funny, I was about to send eon a suggestion to continue an OT string from yesterday at yesterday’s ‘toon if that is okay CM? Like that comments stay open after the fact for those of us like eon and (ahem) that JTC guy for whom brevity is not a strong suit…unless that still burns up band width for you, being old and ignorant I don’t know how that works…? Chris Muir Nov 28 2018 at 8:01 pm Eon put out a VERY long post, I appreciate it, but it was almost a novella. I like his stuff, but if he could condense a tad, others can get in there and address his points. JTC Nov 28 2018 at 10:41 pm Well hell now I’m curious, is it on today’s topic? Hate for it to go to waste; can he or you copy/paste at yesterday’s? Interesting guy, I and others would likely check it out…maybe comment. Wifey says I will argue with a fencepost (apologies to any fenceposts out there), but I prefer to call it offering a contrarian view…like it says on the sidebar at the Old Dead Blog, “ever the contrarian”. 🙂 NotYetInACamp Nov 29 2018 at 11:04 am Apology accepted. Excepted. James Gemind Nov 28 2018 at 6:20 pm NO COMPLICATIONS. NO ACCIDENTS. A baby boy for the girls to adore… Pamela Nov 28 2018 at 6:29 pm and to teach him all the fun stuff shooter 2.5 Nov 28 2018 at 7:56 pm Julie [Golob] and Jessie [Harrison]. Rob[Latham] and Brian [Enos]. Just wondering. Reply Comment Name * Email * Website Save my name, email, and website in this browser for the next time I comment. This site uses Akismet to reduce spam.
