Hey ya all.....before I started rambling up there, I noticed a freezing temperature warning for Harlan County tonight, Tues,(Wed, A.M.) over on the right side of the screen with all the junk. Hope it don't happen and ruin your spring. Better turn those bulbs on again for the chickens.
Freeze warning for most of Kentucky and I did turn those chicken's light on before dark. Your post on the shaving cream reminded me of the Brylcreme hair dressing. It was not so good when you mistook it for toothpaste. LOL

@ Imposter & Wolf..........bout this B & W thang! We were the last three boys at home out of eight kids and every Fri. evening Pap took us all to town for Mom to get what groceries we needed. Well, that was bad enough, have'n to sit in that car while she went into the IGA store. But afterwards, we always went to Pap's folks house........so he and Grandpa could watch those da-n box'n matches......they had a TV, you see......Now,.....picture it,......three young boys who were just a scratch'n to fight after sitt'n still so long, then Mom sat us all three, spread out all over that room and said, "Now, stay there!" ......and we had to be still for them "fights." UUmmph!..Now the Gillette story. Remember how that guy would lather up his face with about two inches thick of white cotton? I, for one, have "NEVER.....NEVER" used that much shaving creme. Besides, I use the gel now and "a little bit'l do ya!"
Growing up we did not have a TV but our bachelor neighbor did, so Mom let us go over and watch a few shows a couple times a week. We preferred Sky King and Flipper but he liked wrestling. Dick the Bruiser etc. he always told us if he fell asleep to wake him up when his show came on.. Sure. Lol.

<quoted text>The price of mortar laid cut stone was around twelve dollars a square foot back when I was in the business, I dont know much at all about those newer landscaping stone that you pin together. The ones I laid came from the quarry squared off, but the mason (me at the time) had to face each one of them by hand with a chisel. I'm sure you've seen those old stone walls and bridges at state parks. All this talk about rocks reminds me- I need to get started on my yearly rock garden, they sprout just fine, but none of them will grow. Good luck with the wall Anne girl it sounds like a fair price to me.
Other people think I have a good price to get that wall up. So I've given the landscaper guy the green light.
Facing those quarry stones had to be pretty hard work-- it makes my hands ache just thinking about it. Lol. I have seen "your" rocks at state parks etc and I do like them. My rock garden is coming along just fine also... It's a geode garden, some if them are medium brown but others are white. I've got a couple white geodes that are as big as an adults head but most are softball size.

There is an old country (now abandoned) grocery store in Mercer County Kentucky near Shakertown on Hwy 33 where the entire front of the building including 2 arches is made of mortared geodes... quite unique.

Lol, I got some of that retail therapy in this evening also, Paula!!

I would love to see the geode arches!! On a much smaller scale--the neighbors house used to have twin bird baths made with the brown geodes. On Prince Edward Island there is a small church made completely of bottles. As you can imagine it really catches your eye when you drive by.

I still have one of those dimes Wolf. I have a 1932 mercury dime that papaw gave me when I was about 10. The thing is worth about fifty bucks now but I wouldn't take a hundred for it. Thunder road was a good movie but they had already torn down the movie house by the time it came out, I seen it at a drive in at the foot of the mountain on the Virginia side. I remember the 66 ford fairlane we went in better than I remember the movie or the girl I took. I think her name was Margret and she had brown hair, but I KNOW that fairlane had a red interior.

I have a small semi-circle wall I laid up out of those quarry rocks in my back yard.
When we would get done with a project the home owner often wanted all the left over stones hauled away, so I accumulated a pretty big pile of them over the years. Funny thing about those rocks, they seem to get way heaver as a man gets older.

That happens to be the very county I am sitting in at this time. And it did indeed come a freeze here. That's OK we will be in full spring in another week or two. Old man winter has to sleep too.

My husband and I have just had another violent fight concerning our five-year old son Timothy, and I desperately need you advice.
My son adores playing with a doll I bought for him last Xmas. He spends hours with it, putting doll clothes on it and feeding in on doll dishes. this aggravates his father to no end and several other adults have made nasty remarks about it too.
Personally, I see nothing wrong with Timothy playing with this doll because it is a sailor doll. He puts a little white hat and uniform on it and I think the image is totally masculine. Why is it when a little girl plays cowboys and Indians everybody says she's a darling little tomboy, but when a boy plays with a doll they say he's queer? Please answer this.

Nah, sounds like he's going to be a good husband and a good father. What wife doesn't want help with the kids... A good dad/husband Is hard to find... Any way, guys tend to call them "action figures" not dolls. If its a true doll, not an action figure then its great he is seeing the need a "baby" would need.

Wolf I laughed so hard it hurt when Delmar said that the first time I seen that movie.
My last fling almost killed me man, it certainly did, almost broke me up too, I think I'll steer clear of them Sirenes and start trading at Kroger again instead of save a lot and the dollar store.
All kidding aside, I think those days are over for me and realizing that only enhances my contentedness and I really just dont care much for it anymore.
Now I know I am getting old and I just dont care about that either lol.

Goodnight Ky and surrounding areas, thank GOD for this fine day.

I wouldn't even think of trying to lift a single rock of mine! We'll have to use a front end loader or a bobcat. I'm really excited about getting started on the wall. My landscaper says he has some really good ideas using those old basement stone and some old well wall stones.

Now, imposter, about your flings! My dads friend, now 76, has a cute little 6 year old boy. His first and only. Enough said.---heeheehee---

That reminds me of my favorite line from John Wayne's movie "The Cowboys" spoken by Roscoe P. Browne (Mr. Nightlinger) when he told that old Madame "I have the inclination and most assurdedly I have the where-with-all; but quite frankly Madame, I just don't have the time"--- hahahaha

It only takes one proper time for those little fishes to swim upstream and being contented comes with knowing you might still have the where-with-all, but you just don't have to spend every waking moment looking for a swimming hole or waste all your time and resources floundering around in a dry creek bed or eroded gully LOL @Imposter... see you at Kroger hehehe

My career in developing software mainly involved Accounting systems where one must compare liabilities versus assets. From my perspective at that old guy's age, the liabilities far outweigh the assets.... and too many of the assets these days are on the couch.. lol
