    We got it here, late yesterday afternoon. My lawn mowing pursuits were curtailed by it. I made it inside, just in time.
    Among the largest of stones were those which could best be described as, quarter-sized. We did however, suffer some high winds. Some whiched caused a bit of damage to trees around the neighborhood...but thankfully, not at this address.
    Whew!

    I would say that he has great taste, but the show is a poster child for concentrated bad taste. And I mean that in a good way. But it is just wrong on so many levels.

    I've never seen the show. Should I check it out? If so, where do I find it?

    It is over the top inappropriate, I do need to give that proviso. People of taste are likely to find it objectionable or just dumb. I assume everyone on this thread may well fall into that category.

    If that does not dissuade you, though, it is on FX Thursday nights.

    Well he's done very well in the spousal choice category. Hit the jackpot, actually. Lucky, lucky man is he.

    Exactly. Guys have a small reservoir of taste. He obviously invested wisely.

    I would be curious if Husband of Weezie thinks you would like the show.

    Eight letters, pool game: _ _ _ A T _ _ N

    Thanks in advance.


    Also, plenty of leftover shrimp from grilling last night, looking for ideas.

    Invite us all for dinner? Lobster Thermidor with shrimp? Lobster mac'n'cheese with shrimp instead?

    Good ideas. (And of course, all are welcome anytime). I think shrimp mac-n-cheese sounds like a winner!

    Still struggling with the crossword puzzle though.

    When I think pool games, Marco Polo and Jump or Dive come to mind. Neither fits.

    Yeah, wonder if it is a billiards game.

    Went to the store to get the Mac and cheese stuff, decided to just grab some cocktail sauce. As an aside, Kroger "Private Select" brand is nice and spicy.

    I immediately thought of billiards. But despite having owned a pool table for the last six years, I know of no games other than 8 and 9 ball.

    The answer turned out to be "ROTATION" -- pretty poor clue IMO.

    Maybe I just need to stick with Will Shortz.

    I landed my dream job and a LARGE raise today.
    This seemed like a good place to shout that fact, since I haven't told my current boss yet.

    Let's hope your boss is not a DBR afficionado. If so, AWKWARD!!!

    P.S. I am outing myself as not your boss. I think.
    P.P.S. Congrats!
