I thought maybe it was a Great Plains phenomenon that the most frail of the elderly come in on the worst possible days and go to safe deposit. I've never understood what could be so important to dodder into the bank assisted by a walker when our staff that lives out of town is considering leaving because the roads are so bad. Maybe it's a senior citizen endurance run.

This is Zaibatsu--tltli, again

I was telling your Alaska stories to a friend and his wife last night when she tells me that she lived in Alaska for 3 winters. She also had a newbie to Alaska story:

Where she work, all of those without block heaters had to be on "car start" patrol (or whatever she called it). In essence, every two hours one person would go out and start all of the non-heater-block-cars. You see, the hospital where she worked had a row of outlets for everyone who had a block-heater car. Of course, her car had no block heater.

Finally, she got her block heater car and plugged it in it for the night in her garage. The next day she went out to drive to work--so very happy that she would not be on "car-start" duty. She unplugged the extension cord and went to put it in the trunk. When she did, she found that she now had a 50 foot long frozen-solid extension cord. She said that no matter how hard she tried to cram it in her trunk it popped back out before she could shut it. Finally, in disgust, she threw it out in the lawn and drove to work--once again, of course, on the "car-start" list.

No one told her that they sold special extension cords that do not freeze solid.

No wonder you Alaskans like to drink--that would drive me to hallucinagens (sp?).

When I first moved here and saw all those cars with plugs hanging out of the engines I thought to myself...wow these people must be very environmentally friendly! I've never seen so many electric cars!!

Fortunately I never said it out-loud

Dawnie, I have not had the pleasure of meeting you in person, but getting to know you here on BOL, I can actually visualize you thinking that

OK
Not only do they go to proms in gowns and tuxes made with duct tape, you can enter a contest and win college scholarship money.

I tell ya..sometimes my brain takes a vacation and imagines the funniest stuff! Normally it's during a CD Loan write up for the OCC...but occasionally it affects my views of the world outside the office too

My imaginary friend thinks I'm quite brilliant. Of course I never share my bizarre thoughts with her. She's smarter than me...(I'm alot prettier than she is though)

(Ok it's Friday and I have officially LOST IT!!!!)

I knew I was a BOL addict when I saw the ad:
"Have you ever seen a grown man cry?" followed by a broken bottle of Crown Royal....
and thought of Dan.

About 5 or 6 years ago, we were having a party and my wife at the time was making a punch which called for an adult beverage to be added. After changing clothes and coming down stairs, naturally I sampled the punch before the guests arrived. I said "Hon, this is the best you made yet, what did you use in it?" She said "I used this bottle I found stuck behind all the others. Didn't look like you were drinking out of it (only about 4 or 5 drinks had come out of it) so I didn't think it was the good stuff."

Yep, over 1/2 bottle of my Crown went into that punch!

We're now divorced.

Yep, true story.

Another true story, about the same time frame, I had just bought a pair of Foot Joy Dry Joy golf shoes, as I recall $85.00. Wore them 3 times. Put them on the shelf in the garage with my other stuff. Went back in the spring to get my golf shoes to go play couldn't find them. Ex was having a garage sale and I asked her if she'd seen my golf shoes. She asked me what they looked like, I told her she told me she sold them, for a whole $5.

We're now divorced.

I can sympathize. I love golf, my golf clubs, my golf bag, and my golf shoes. My game isn't worth talking about, but I would be devestated if I lost any of it!

Lestie, yep same ex.

Michelle, don't know when she'll have another, but when she does at least my stuff is now safe.

Kara, use to play a lot of golf, now only play 5 or 6 times a year. Spend more time fishing now and I find it much more relaxing. Not really enough time to do both.

Getting back to the snow talk at the beginning of the thread (I didn't read all 15 pages so I'm not sure how we went from snow to alcohol) but here in the wonderful state of Texas best city of Houston (except for the Texans but give them time) we had an early cold snap and an actual frost one night and it sure has had an awesome effect on the color of the trees! Something were not used to seeing at all! I feel like I'm living in New England!
