A man and a woman, who have never met before, find themselves in the same sleeping carriage of a train. After the initial embarrassment, they both manage to get to sleep; the woman on the top bunk, the man on the lower.

In the middle of the night the woman leans over and says, "I'm sorry to bother you, but I'm awfully cold and I was wondering if you could possibly pass me another blanket?"

The man leans out and with a glint in his eye said "I've got a better idea ... let's pretend we're married."

"Why not," giggles the woman.

"Good," he replies. "Get your own damned blanket!"

@ Wolf I am a lifetime "honorary" member at the club, I never served but Sam did. I made a pure as out of myself last night I only hope that Sam doesn't have to pay for my mistake in any way. He was one of the ones that sponsored me years and years ago.
I feel the same as you do about what other people think of me, in that- I care not a whit.
We only had a couple of brews a piece. We had fun...I dont see the big deal... so they can bite me. I'll go over to the home later and get a damage report.

I know what you mean, your only concern is that you don't want Old Sam having to pay for any damage but he is probably enjoying the opportunity to get out and even if there is any damage he had a good moment and the ends justify the means.

I visited again a couple weeks ago and talked with some old guy I never knew before. He was glad I came and he said the worst part of being in there was not being able to work in his garden or mow his grass. They had helped him piddle with a few tomatoes out behind the building and he was very proud of those and wanted me to go look out the window. I bragged on his little tomatoes which were about the same size as my own.(mine did not do very well at all this year).

Then I went on to a birthday party for some old gal that I did not know her or her family either and had just turned 103 years old. She was all smiles when I told her I always had a fondness for older women and especially those wearing pretty pink outfits. Too often relatives stick their elders in places like that and while the staff does the best they can, they rarely get what they really need which is someone just showing that they really care about them. She made sure that I got the biggest piece of cake even though her hands were shaking almost too much to even slide it over toward me.

It flabbergasts me that the elders or any convalescent patient is required to go without alcoholic beverages and sexual gratification. Is that not living? Geez, I had a Worker tell one time of chasing an older lady off a paraplegic patient. I'm like if there's no harm done what was the problem. Those places take away basic rights from Folks. They often get admonished for self gratifiction and then wonder why patients have to take nerve pills and psychotic meds.
@ Imposter, good for you for standing up to the croney phoney business. The man is alive to enjoy the rest of his days not have his hands slapped like a child. Yeah, reward him real good the next time;)

Wonder is its still that way? A little crazy
You think they could put up " no loitering" signs and pass out hefty fines. They should work from a business or put a sign in their front yards Massages Offered or something. Children should never have to experience such illicit activity. Mind you that's why I like brothels or strip clubs. Streetwalkers must be the rejects. Lol.

Any of you out there good on judgeing trees?

My red maple grew too large and the roots above ground were being hit by the mower with the leaves getting into the gutter.

So, it got cut down. Now looking for a small, good shade pretty tree to do a replacement. Thought about a Japanese Maple , or, a blooming ornamental Pear, as well as a blooming weeping cherry.

Any ideas out there??

I would lead a revolt in the nursing home. I'd have some signs
"Nuts and bolts, we want screwed"
And "I'd rather have a bottle in front of me, than to have to have a frontal lobotomy"

It gives you concern for the Dewey Decimal system.
Now class on our field trip to the Library today we will see the ladies of the street on the right. These ladies are working hard and look there is John supporting our young single ladies. Everyone wave and say hi to John.

I have an ornamental pear tree. Very resistant to blight and colorful. It has some serious thorns! Ouch

I went to take my medicine from miss Cratchet the hatchet, she caught up to us in the common room and I was scolded a little but that's about it. I started to come back with a choice word or two of my own but I held my tongue. It was kind of funny, a 5 foot 6 or so woman all scowling and wagging her finger at me, looking up at me the whole time LOL I'm six five 240lbs so if you can get that picture you can see how ridicules that must have looked. Sam laughed the whole time! LOL.
I am not to leave the facility grounds with him without expressed permission ever again! Or there will be "severe" consequences......So we waited about a half an hour then slipped out and went to eat at Arby's. LMAO We got away with it too. At least we came back stone cold sober this time.
I feel like a schoolboy that played hooky and got away with it.
I wish I could take every ambulatory patient in the whole place and load them up on a big bus and take them all fishing or something. Eh, we can only do what we can do I guess.
Good day.

I sort of knew that Sam would find it funny. If they have an outside area (as most do), maybe take a small cooler of Miller's and hide it in the bushes and then you won't be leaving their "grounds". LOL You have a good night, plus the rest of the good folks. I need to finish up for my dinner and a movie night. Fixing pulled pork bbq and will watch "Glory". BTW, you have me beat. I am only 6'1" and 210 lbs.

@Anne.. my hens are back to being productive

6'5". And 6'1". Wow. I'm 5'1". But hey, my legs reach the ground, so that works!!

@imposter. Glad things worked out. Heeheehee!
You have a good heart. You and AW have been an example to me with the nursing home visits that I just may follow one of these days. Uh, dont think I'll try the beer run though.. Lol
And AW, that BBQ pork sounds so good right now. I had breakfast early on but I am certainly hungry now!! Have you ever had the Moonlite BBQ ? Or the Old Hickory BBQ ? Both in owensboro. When we are there that's where we like to eat.
My hens have managed 2 eggs this week. Both pinkish. The one that lays bluish/green hasn't started back laying. The three that are about 5 months old...shouldn't they start laying soon?

I love flowering ornamental trees!! But the Japanese red maple we had in our yard was so beautiful!! Guess I'm not much help... Lol! My vote goes for the flowering ornamental !! Weeping cherry, alas , wouldn't supply much shade

I popped back in while waiting on my date since everything is ready. I have not been to Owensboro in many years. When the wife was still living, we met friends for stage shows at the Executive Inn but we never went anywhere except to the hotel. The showroom was built out into the river.I don't even know if that is still there or if they still have the quality of country music entertainers that they had 10-15 years ago.

Most hens will lay anywhere from 4 to 6 months in age, except in winter. Then they are likely to just wait until spring. Your bluish/green hen is probably an Aracauna that originates out of South America. Does it like to climb on things more than the others? If so, that is probably the breed. I have 18 adult hens that did drop off to about 3 per day, but are now coming back up to 10 or 12 per day. I also have 12 more that are about 5 months old that are not laying yet, but should be by the end of September.

*bluish-green egg layer, not the hen LOL The shell color is defined by breed, the eggs are the same but varies based on their diet. If they continue to not lay, feed them bits of pork fats chopped into small threads.

Might try a pear or cherry tree. My Dad had one of each when I was a child. They're a medium sized tree. Hope that helps;)

Executive inn was imploded a few years back. There's a strikingly beautiful convention center that's almost completed in its place and a big ole motel that's also almost completed. Gonna be very nice!!
My hens are the Aracaunas(?). Grey legs and feather beards. The hens are a variety of colors and the eggs they are SUPPOSED to be laying will be shades of pink ( light brown) bluish and greenish. The eggs are not uniform in size at all

Those weeping cherry trees look good in the spring, real good, and they look pretty all summer too, but in the winter they look all creepy to me for some reason.
Apple trees are nice and they bear fruit to so that's a plus, but they are kinda hard to keep alive when young.
Now a regular old rut of the mill mimosa...that's a hardy tree. They are real nice if you don't have allergies. I have several out in back of the shack.

What are those trees that bloom out in late spring, they can have all kinds of different colored blossoms from one tree to the next, the ones with the shiny purple looking leaves? I cant for the life of me remember the name...but they sure are pretty even when the blooms are gone.

Plant you a stand of ponderosa pine! You may come out some evening and catch little Joe under there with a pretty young girl.
