    It's hard for me to Fathom getting that upset about something that isn't meat related. On at least a moderately related note, I Used to mow with no shirt on when I was still doing the work. One of our new neighbors when we moved in asked if I was the gardener because the yard needed lots of attention. It was basically dirt at the time. I replied that I was and then she hesitated and asked where I got all the tattoos and I replied "Prison" and cranked up the lawn mower. My family still gets a kick out of that one.

    Still can't spork you. Always good when you instill fear in your neighbors.

    Thatís pretty funny. I think you might be exaggerating just how big the fish you caught was but I still approve!

    It's reasonable for you to feel this way. Talking to doctors over the years I have learned to know when to turn my crazy on and off. Most of the time it's on simmer. I'm almost never moved to anger, the things that come out of my mouth are calculated. In that situation I felt that lady was taking advantage of her advanced age and assumed no one in our neighborhood, especially someone she perceived to be a worker, would speak to her that way. She went by the wrong neighbor's house. I'm not the kind of crazy that gets locked up for the night in jail, but I am the kind of crazy that gets you locked up for a night in jail.

    Don't even get me started about the ice maker.

    We recently got a countertop ice maker that's really nice both at home and while we're traveling in the RV. But holy moly, that thing is loud.

    In addition to using my leaf blower for its intended purpose, I also use it about twice a year to blow french fries out from underneath my car seats. I put a sheet out on the opposite side from which I'm blowing in order to catch the fries. McDonalds and Burger King fries are still edible. Bojangles fries are not.

    we killed our icemaker (disconnected it) upon arrival. Little known fact: many appliance dealers refuse to hook up icemakers in your home...too many leakage issues over time...I know three people who had leaking ice makers ruin their kitchen floors, also basement repercussions. (many ice maker parts are cheapo plastic in nature)...

    X2, I hadn't used the pre-installed one in my fridge in 4-5 years. With the onset of the pandemic, I pulled out the parts to reclaim the space.

    Are those Bojangle fries curly or their normal ones? Did they ever have curly fries? It has been 12 years since I've seen a Bo-han-glaze.

    Peak at the local wildlife management area was about a week or so ago so that would make sense!

    Sounds like living hell.
    I don't do needles unless it's absolutely essential.

    Normal ones. Iíve never seen their curly fries, and I go there a lot, and have since they started opening.

    Bojangle's fries are pretty good if they're fresh, but they get limp and sad after about 3 minutes under the heat lamp. This means that they're pretty lame about 90% of the time. This is why I rarely if ever order fries when I get my jingle on some 'Jangles. Just put me down for a(nother) Cajun Fillet Biscuit.

    what's a Bojangles? A jewelry store that also peddles french fries?

    Silly nice weather, about to slow cook outdoors the first spatchcock bird of the season, a lovely six and a half pounder, and there will be house special gin and tonics.
