Default Quote of the day

I actually dreamed this up last night while reading a topic here (topic will remain anonymous). Something that just popped into my head after reading an older topic where a member here chased his tail on a problem for a long time before fixing it, and most of that before joining. The fix turned out to be something quite simple that was overlooked, and was caused by something done earlier to the car.

In a sense, that'* what this Forum is all about.

*crickets*
However, very accurate. Though a lot is not one word.

Great.
I wish I had had this little tidbit of wisdom BEFORE I got married the first time.

I wouldn't have had to pay for a divorce lawyer

Wow, two new threads in the Lounge and a profound statement from our Administrator (and so true) (would have saved me years of paying child support ) . Getting out of your Apartment into (is into one word Blackbird)(I cant spell either,.... but I can whack down a minikeg ) a house seems to agree with you.

I sold my house 3 years ago. I had no time to keep up with the yards. I had it beautifully landscaped, including a stream and pond. I also had the nicest lawns in the neighborhood, and fully automatic irrigation, including my greenhouse (I built it) and the hanging baskets on the front porch.

The pond water level was maintained automatically, as well as the dog'* water.

Here'* my favorite quote of the moment

Quote:
Excuse me? First amendment?
Son, the first amendment protects you from the government
Not from me
You can say whatever you want to out there
You come within reach of me
I'll exercise my right to give you a good ol' country *** whoopin'
That'* what I'll do for you
By God

Trace Adkins
Fightin' words
