Best Laid Plans

This old A&J is from July, 2004.  I don’t have much time to post anything more, but I’m hoping it will be an eventful week around here.

  1. One of my all-female staff told me about once when one of her teenage daughters came in from a date and needed to ask her something. Fortunately, she knocked on their bedroom door first, or it would have been a very inopportune moment.

    The next day, the daughter said to her, “I know what y’all were doing last night.”

    “What do you mean?” my A-FS member asked innocently.

    “Your panties were on the nightstand.”

  2. Ghost, just what was your business with an A-FS?

    BTW, lingerie on a nightstand is no proof of anything; could be stuff merely not yet put away from the laundry.

  3. I was very happy for my parents when I knew they were busy, and gave plenty of space. I liked Ann Landers method of keeping kids busy when in the mood. She recommended taking a roll of 50 pennies, remove one, and throw the rest in the yard telling the kids to find all 50. Of course one story had the kids come back too soon with 53.

  4. Regular Wednesday in Tulsa for Jackie ‘s medical appointments. Had enough of a break to have a leisurely lunch so decided to go to our favorite Vietnamese restaurant. Arrived to find it had changed ownership.

    On the plus side, Jackie and I agreed the already awesome food was even better. 🙂

    On the negative side, our favorite short-short-wearing Vietnamese waitress (for obvious reasons, I referred to her as “Hot Legs”) is apparently no longer there. 🙁

    At least I still have a picture of Hot Legs that Jackie took about a year ago.

  5. Above webcam can move. Nest must be straight below it, on a sandy spot. View was close up, adult tern seen from above, took up much of the screen. Lots of Atlantic puffin nests among the boulders, one with a webcam up close. Peace,

  6. I have been looking for a Sunday strip that I cut out of the paper but have lost. It is one of my favorites. I have spent the last 3 days going through the 1889 pages of your blog (didn’t make it through all of them 🙂 ) and haven’t found it.

    The one I have in mind has Arlo working around the house on a ladder and singing the Jimmy Buffet song, “Why Don’t We Get Drunk.” As he reaches the chorus, he looks down, sees Gene looking up at him and sings “Why don’t we sing another song?”

    I would love to see it in reprint.

  7. Superb website you have here but I was curious about
    if you knew of any discussion boards that cover the same topics discussed here?

    I’d really like to be a part of community where I can get
    opinions from other knowledgeable people that share the
    same interest. If you have any recommendations, please let me know.
    Cheers!

  8. Today, I went to the beachfront with my kids.
    I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter
    and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She placed the shell
    to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear.
    She never wants to go back! LoL I know this
    is completely off topic but I had to tell someone!

  9. Excellent blog! Do you have any tips for aspiring writers?
    I’m planning to start my own website soon but I’m a little lost on everything.
    Would you propose starting with a free platform like WordPress or go for a paid option?
    There are so many options out there that I’m completely overwhelmed ..

    Any recommendations? Kudos! scoliosis surgery https://0401mm.tumblr.com/ scoliosis surgery
