I am LOVING it...we are off to the Finger Lakes for the day soon....the point of the peninsula of Keuka Lake...a stop at the Keuka Springs Winery, my personal fav, and then gorgeous lake views, dinner with friends and family and a long drive home late at night. Fun in the sun. Tomorrow is the fam reunion at the BIL’s.

I dunno, sounds like an antique automobile, the Shtanley Stumer but foreign words are tricky, maybe that’s where the Stumer Troopers got that “SS” thing. Could be.

Now if it’s slang you gotta remember slang is past participant of sling and also that former sharp looking acteress Jessica Slang, the one with the monkey in the movie, Kink Kong (this was before the Vee-ate Kong and all that) but not too much anymore. stumer!

Interesting! Xsjr’s class back in 9th grade found some Russian fairytale that was princess and poo or something similarly bizarre. Will have to look for it later. Handicapped bc I’m poolside operating via iPhone. Gorgeous day in Hershey not humid and nice temps.

Grim used to bring him around.

I’ve waded through 8 years of posts.

No Luck. I think JimRob may have zotted him out of existence on the FR servers.

He used to get zotted on any thread outside of WFTD.

I found this in the archives while looking at old threads. Kids say and write the darnedest things.

The writers of a Feb. 8 letter about abortion appear to believe that the world is about themselves and their personal liberties.
If the world is about total freedom for anyone to do anything to their bodies, or their homes, or their neighborhood, then what we have is a free-for-all in which everyone's liberty is destroyed except for the strongest of humans.
Sacrificing innocent human lives on the altar of women's liberation is every bit as insane as sacrificing them on the altar of Aztec gods. No cause is worth murder. If any are, then there are no causes worth fighting for. Life is first among our inalienable rights, granted both by the Declaration of Independence and our Creator.
-- James J. Heaney, eighth-grader, St. Paul.

Mr. Spanky is dead, or at least legally dead. Hasn't been seen in over 7 yrs. Hopefully, his life insurance has paid off.

Meanwhile, if I hear just ONE MORE dimocrat utter the phrase "shared sacrifice", there will be projectile vomiting. How about the 51% of Americans who pay ZERO income taxes? Where's the sharing?
