Hi, Vision. I’ve not heard of those two shows either.

Did you have a better week this time than last week?

That pic’s why the boy in it turned out to be a physicist.

And the boys listening to (c)rap on the radio now could be the Obamadork’s son.

Yesterday across America was the Day of Resistance against commie gun control attempts. I was invited to speak at a rally in Mobile, AL.

A Vietnam Veteran TEA Party fellow took some photos (there are a couple of me speaking and Keith’s in there, too): https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.2847866451923.72159.1717306079&type=1&l=8fbb1ecf1c

The turnout was weak in a city of over 400-thousand, but it was not publicized other than Facebook, e-mail and word of mouth.

Hi Gina, oh, oh yes. Life is much better this week...and I passed, thank God.

How are you? Any cooking? I'm reheating steaks tonight...

Probably. The question I can't answer is what is the can sitting on the radio.

I’m glad you passed! Easy day!

A leftover steak is a good steak. :-) I’m not sure what we’re going to do for dinner. I could thaw out a couple of pork chops to do something with, or maybe it will be Stouffer’s.

Any idea what a poke is?

A poke is a bag. The phrase “pig in a poke” refers to (goes back to the Middle Ages, supposedly) to when meat was scarce, and pigs were sometimes sold in closed bags. If you bought a pig in a poke without inspecting it first, you might get a dog or cat instead for meat.

The phrase means “buyer beware.”

Granted this show is from a long time ago...but I'm tired of these "the husband is an idiot" shows How about a show where the wife is an idiot? Or the kids are idiots? Can you imagine what the media would do if there was a show where the dumb wife was the butt of the jokes?

Exactly, Vision. We've been watching this for a long time, and it's part of why we don't like Father Knows Best. The wimpification/feminization of our culture was going on even back then. Today, everyone is "wise," except the straight, white male. It's sickening.

I agree.
As much as I love OTR, I tend to avoid this particular series.
It’s not just the male bashing, I dislike the constant bickering.

This Armstrong program is terrible.

It's very "politically correct," isn't it?

I also hate the "horn speaking" angle. Dumb.
