His performances in such films as "Support Your Local Sheriff" and "Support Your Local Gunfighter" and "Space Cowboys" or the TV series "Maverick" were always the perfect succor to overcome a bad mood; I was genuinely saddened to hear that James Garner had passed away.

When Monica’s lips went to pucker
Bill knew she’d provide him with succor
But he said to his wife
“I do swear on my life
I never, not once, tried to f*** her!”

Many a succor falls for the Democrat Party lies — there is no help for them.

It seemed that the players would succor assistance from the medical staff (and referees) quite frequently ...

I was following the competition, and even the “experts” were saying that diving was way up this tournament .... There was also some study conducted recently which showed a general correlation that players from warmer climates tended to act out more – I think the hardy eastern Europeans were least likely to do so.

well depends, xshub’s 4 runner and the Denali before it, requires me to hike myself up on the step to get in. It is a function of how high off the ground it is. Esp tough in a dress.

I don’t think climbing up is nearly as bad as having to crouch down and twist to get into a low car. Of course, my cars are just right. Just open the door and sit down.

My wife’s new car got 27.5 and 26.6 mpg on our trip to Niagara. Not bad for fully loaded with three people and with A/C.

VPA. Anytime there is a girl with a skirt on, somewhere there is the Visual Panty Angle. I learned that from the UK series “Coupling.”

Just got home from doing an estimate to deliver later today or tomorrow-

If Obama’s minions want us
To accept the illegals here
They need to succor them all-
Most of us won’t shed a tear

To see those kids of all ages
From training pants to tattoos
Put on the first flight out-
Now that would be great news

If the liberals want them so much
Take them home, with all haste
We’ll laugh as the human locusts
Lay those fancy homes to waste...

And I’ll bet if that happened, every liberal member of congress would instantly have a full domestic staff-even if they lived alone-none of whom spoke English, and all paid way below minimum wage-butler, maids for every room, at least two cooks, laundress...

I prefer climbing up and into a 4x4 to scrunching down into something like that old 300ZX I drive-and my tools and stuff fit into the 4Runner very nicely...

That old ZX I used to drive-I sold it to a co-worker-the suspension was trashed by the rough roads out here, but he only wanted it for the engine and transmission, which I always maintained very well...

I think “Inferno,” with its impassioned speech at the end, is one of the best sitcom episodes ever.
