Day By Day


  • Merle

    Now this should prove interesting….. 🙂

  • JackDeth 72

    Ballet?…. I was expecting Salsa or a Tango.

    Memo to young Master Javier Thomas:

    Daddy’s pissed.

    To quote a favorite line of Burt Lancaster in the 197os CIA espionage film, ‘Scorpio’:

    “When you run. Run fast. Run far. Do NOT run in a straight line!”

    • GWB

      “When you run. Run fast. Run far. Do NOT run in a straight line!”
      To quote another movie:
      “Serpentine, Shelly. Serpentine!”

      • Unca Walt

        That scene caused me to laugh until tears ran down my leg.

        • Funniest movie ever.

      • Bob in Houston-Vast Right Wing Basket of deplorable!

        Beat me to it, dammit!

      • JackDeth 72

        Also hijacked for a scene of Eureka’s Sheriff dodging a tracking laser beam with the aid and advice of Game Warden, Matt Frewer, GWB.

  • Have you ever noticed that it’s always “your son” when it’s trouble?

    • Fronk!


      • MommaMackie

        My son’s ex does the same thing. When the girl does something great or is well behaved, she’s the ex’s little angel. The rest of the time, baby girl is her father’s daughter!

        Truth? I can’t blame her a bit. Wish my son could get custody.

    • JackDeth 72

      That. And being called out by your first, middle and last name.

      Never a good sign,

      • Indeed!

      • David Grimes

        When we had kids – one boy and one girl – I made sure that they had plenty of syllables. When I hit them with the three name call they knew it was time to settle down.

    • Vince

      Or daughter….

  • Too Tall

    I seem to recall an incident involving commercial jetliners skywriting for the Double D. The memorable observation from Zed to Wade was along the lines of “ I expect Damon is having a talk with his boy.”

    At times like this when you are the father, it is always “your son,” or “your boy.” A real Dad wouldn’t have it any other way, the “talk” is invariably memorable, and usually grows in love, wisdom, and value, over the years, even after Dad is gone.

  • Pete231

    Vegas is so last year’s meh. Want some fun ? Head out to South Lake Tahoe where they have two seasons – winter and road repair. But, I digress. Lots of compact fun and action with everything right at one’s fingertips. No cabs necessary to get from A to B. It’s all within crawling distance for those who are ambulatory impaired. The state line into Calif. is down the street at the end of casino row where me and my significant other would find an accommodating alley to perform a violation of the act of “taking a female across the line for immoral purposes.” Always looked forward to that function as part of our sojourn. Never really hit big ones, but one man’s ceiling is another man’s floor………..

  • Too Tall

    The Mann Act: It’s not a law, it’s a challenge.

    With 50 different tasks to complete.

    • Merle

      Wasn’t that addressing a minor female? Otherwise most of the country would be felons…… 🙂

  • Interventor

    Nothing happening outside the Hard Rock, tonight. That, I can see. Las Vegas, a city founded on alcohol, avarice and lust — all the good stuff. Add, a thirst for power and it degenerates into DC.

  • John T. Block

    You would think withe the chops to do a stunt like that,
    The kid would know how to hide his tracks better…
    Unless he’s showing off for Dad….

    • Sendarius

      I don’t believe the FBI tracked malware – they couldn’t find their own ass with both hands and a map.

      • Sendarius

        … oh, and isn’t the Thomas family in ITALY? Shouldn’t that make it the purview of the CIA?

        • GWB

          Well, the phone call has to be made by the FBI, but it’s being monitored by the CIA.

          • Fronk!

            Actually, the Vegas Gaming Commission is the entity who’s the call. The FBI only tracked the malware’s origin to where the Thomas family is vacationing in Venice and apparently reported this to the VGC. What I want to know is what do Autonomous Public Vehicles and the Las Vegas Gaming Commission have to do with each other?

    • Deplorable B Woodman

      Yep. Javier is either slipping or (young and) inexperienced.

  • Bren

    Or using the malware to plant a tracer in the FBI tracking software.

  • GWB

    One question for Vegas:
    Why would they need centralized control routines if they’re “autonomous”.
    You keep using that word………….

    • JAK

      And what’s with autonomous pubic vehicle. I got these wild ass fantasies running through me head.

      • JTC

        Damn it JAK, you had me jumping back up there hoping that was a real quote! “Autonomous Pubic Vehicles” doing it in unison? I mean, it’s Vegas, so…

  • WayneM

    Javier is too smart to be caught that easy. I’m thinking it’s a diversion for something else far more “problematic” so to speak.

  • MasterDiver

    (In my best Mr. Filch voice) Oh, Dear-dear-dear-dear…Someone’s in trooouubblllleee…

    Zar Belk!

  • interventor

    Vegas Gaming Commission is like the Texas Railroad Commission. Their powers have grown beyond the initial founding.

    • NotYetInACamp

      Robert Moses showed the way.

    • JTC

      All the alphabets been weaponized figuratively and literally…why not VGC? Prob’ly gots a SWAT too, watch out kid.

  • Advo

    I always thought cyber crime was NSA territory.

    • MAJ Arkay

      Nope. NSA is not a law enforcement entity.

  • Pamela

    Choreography! To what song?

    • JackDeth 72

      The Village People’s ‘YMCA’?

      Or ‘On Broadway’ ala the Cattle Call scene in the beginning of Bob Fosse’s ‘All That Jazz’?

      • Pamela

        I thought maybe Funky Town or Turn Back TIme

  • gruundehn

    Just a point: It is the Nevada Gaming Commission, not the Vegas Gaming Commission. I was stationed at Nellis for 2 years or so.

    • armedandsafe

      You are correct, gruundehn, but I didn’t comment because the use of “Las Vegas” makes the point better.
      Because you were at Nellis, you are one of the few people in the world who know what I mean when I say “My home town is Boulder City.”

      • NotYetInACamp

        And they are playing telephone. The caller may have identified the entity correctly, with the scene of the incident being in Vegas, or something along those lines.

  • Peregrine John

    Funniest dang thing I’ve read in weeks. Nicely done.

  • JSStryker

    Doing ballet is funny as hell but them doing square dancing would have been hilarious!
