TGI Wednesday - 01/08/13 11:57 PM

"For the memory of love is sweet, though the love itself were in vain. And what I have lost of pleasure, assuage what I find of pain."
-- Lyster

A man walks into a bar and orders a 12-year-old scotch.

The bartender, believing that the customer will not be able to tell the difference, pours him a shot of the cheap 3-year-old house scotch that has been poured into an empty bottle of the good stuff.

The man takes a sip and spits the scotch out on the bar and reams the bartender. "This is the cheapest 3-year-old scotch you can buy. I'm not paying for it. Now, give me a good 12-year-old scotch."

The bartender, now feeling a bit of a challenge, pours him a scotch of much better quality, 6-year-old scotch. The man takes a sip and spits it out on the bar. "This is only 6-year-old scotch. I won't pay for this, and I insist on a good, 12-year-old scotch. The bartender finally relents and serves the man his best quality, 12-year-old scotch. The man sips the drink and says, "Now that's more like it."

An old drunk from the end of the bar, who has witnessed the entire episode, walks down to the finicky scotch drinker and sets a glass down in front of him and asks, "What do you think of this?" The scotch expert takes a sip, and in disgust, violently spits out the liquid yelling "THIS TASTES LIKE PEE."

To which the old drunk replies, "That's right, now guess how old I am."

A very inebriated lady walked into a bar shortly before closing time, sat at the bar and ordered, "Barbender, barbender, I would like a Martoutsy." The bartender brought her a Martini, which she drinks in one gulp.

"Barbender, I would like another Martoutsy", again the bartender brought her a Martini. By this time the lady is leaning heavily forward, barely able to hang on. She called, "Barbender, your Martoutsys are giving me heartburn."

Patiently, the bartender came near her and said, "Lady, I am not a barbender, but a bartender, and what you have been drinking is not a Martoutsy, but a Martini, and finally, you do not have heartburn, your chest is leaning against the ashtray."

A drunk staggers into a Catholic Church, enters a confessional box, sits down but says nothing. The Priest coughs a few times to get his attention but the drunk just sits there. Finally, the Priest pounds three times on the wall. The drunk mumbles, "ain't no use knockin, there's no paper on this side either".

A drunk stumbles along a baptismal service on Sunday afternoon down by the river. He proceeds to walk down into the water and stand next to the Preacher.

The minister turns and notices the old drunk and says, "Mister, Are you ready to find Jesus?"

The drunk looks back and says, "Yes, Preacher... I sure am."

The minister then dunks the fellow under the water and pulls him right back up. "Have you found Jesus?" the preacher asked.

"No, I didn't!" said the drunk.

The preacher then dunks him under for quite a bit longer, brings him up and says, "Now, brother, have you found Jesus?"

"No, I did not Reverend."

The preacher in disgust holds the man under for at least 30 seconds this time, brings him out of the water and says in a harsh tone, "My Good man, have you found Jesus yet?"

The old drunk wipes his eyes and asks the preacher... "Are you sure this is where he fell in?"

The neighbour dropped in on a friend and found her sitting at the kitchen table, staring blankly at a half-empty cup of coffee; her three kids squabbling loudly in the other room.

"What's wrong Marge ?" she asked.

Marge told her that she had "morning sickness."

Surprised, the neighbour said, "I didn't even know you were pregnant!"

"I'm not." the harried young woman replied. "I'm just sick of mornings."

A businessman entered a tavern, sat down at the bar, and ordered a double martini on the rocks. After he finished the drink, he peeked inside his shirt pocket, then he ordered another double martini. After he finished that one, he again peeked inside his shirt pocket and ordered another double martini.

Finally, the bartender said, "Look, buddy, I'll bring ya' martinis all night long. But you gotta tell me why you look inside your shirt pocket before you order a refill."

The customer replied, "I'm peeking at a photo of my wife. When she starts to look good, then I know it's time to go home."

Good morning everyboomie. wave

I think I would have a picture of myself in my pocket, and when IT started to look good I'd know it's time to quit drinking. rotfl

It's time. razz

I won't be doing any head hunting today, but you're right Ana. I'm anticipating getting out there very soon to see what's been uncovered. happydance

Wonderful Wednesday ya'll puppy

It's warm in are open and I'm in shorts. Weatherman is calling for bad weather later in the day sorta state wide. I'm waiting for the windshield man to come but so far have not heard from him.

Son is too sore to move today, so I think he'll be in bed all day. I'm going to do some laundry and some book cooking and eat something to see if the tummy wants to play today. wave

Help! It's pouring raining and my 3 cats and 1 doggy have cabin fever. Maybe a good day to get the PS Vita and hibernate in bed and let "them" harass each other.

We have had 2" rain and Bastrop, south of us will have 6 by tonight. If some topsoil washes away maybe more petrified wood will be exposed. A geophysicist claims that this area is close to the epicenter of a petrified forest Wow-history.

Joe, if you are having rain like we are, maybe some arrow heads will magically appear.

Off to Amazon to order more games.

Happy Wednesday all

Good afternoon/evening to my GB friends!
Things are going well here except for my back. Have sciatica that is really hurting and goes all the way down my left leg. Shopping and errands are much harder to do as a result.
We'll be getting down to the low 30s at night here by Friday, so have to be sure to cover my plants outside. Days are around 55 to 60, so not bad. We're just not used to the cold here in AZ, and we really feel it.
My 4 cats are fine and I have applied for a job with American Express again, so we'll see what happens with that.
Take care, stay safe and warm!

Good evening boomies! I used every second of my day off having fun. I went to Zumba and then grabbed the dogs for a run in the woods. Merlin chased a deer to Shadow and I and it missed hitting us by 3 feet. Scared the bejeezus out of both Shadow and I. rotfl Then Shadow caught an opposum which promptly fainted so he dropped it. It'll be fine, he didn't hurt it.
Then I ran a 5K in 36 minutes. I am trying to do that at least once a week so I can keep my stamina up.

Haroula, welcome home! I missed you.

Joe, what did you end up doing today?

L4L, I hope son feels better. It's warm here today. we hit 47 degrees.

Nan, hope all is well today. Miss you!

Yankee, that would be really cool to see a petrified forest. Hope you get a rain break.

SpaceQ, hope your day was great.

Andrea, sorry your sciatica is back. Have you tried a chiropractor? Hope you get your job!

Made fish for dinner and now it's game time. I should be back to work tomorrow.

Ana wave

Great job by the way. bravo

Re: TGI Wednesday - 01/09/13 09:02 PM

yay You picked up Baby! That makes your day perfect! hearts Running was easy today because I ran in my running shoes and not the hiking boots I had to run in on New Years. That hurt my shins for days. I feel good!

I need to start lifting weights more again to strengthen my neck. I have to carry Merlin into my truck and up on my bed and he weighs 87 pounds. My poor buddy is getting old...sad

Nan, there you are! I missed you. kissy I hope your computer is behaving now.

Midgie, how was the doctor visit?

Re: TGI Wednesday - 01/09/13 11:07 PM

Well, we had a great day. I was talking severely to Lil Soot whose name is now officially Elf With Attitude. The other doggies came to help and in the process, Skywalker smacked me in the eye with his head. Man that hurt!

Now it's time to hit the hay. Tomorrow will be another early day, and we all know how much I don't like those.

Sleep well all sleep

Re: TGI Wednesday - 01/09/13 11:33 PM

Ana I don't know how you could run in hiking boots at all. shocked

Nan I need an ark or a row boat. I guess an ark with all the animals two by two would be great. Well most of the animals any way. puppy

L4L I've had head butts while wrestling with Baby, who is a little dog, and they hurt. razz

Good night everybody. wave
