    1. OMG… Obviously, no real country guys at that shop……. If I was there I would have run to the door to catch her…. Takes a bit for them to calm down but if you handle her with slow motion, she calms down and becomes more curious about you, not in a mean way…. Black snakes are good… no Copperheads in the area for sure ……….

  1. Anyone have any thoughts about the race ? I didn’t see a whole lot of improvement…more passing in the pack but same cars still out front waiting for the 4 to pass them for the win.Still looking for the fans who screamed “cheater” every time the 48 won .

  2. An oldie with some addition.

    The Husband Store

    A store that sells new husbands has opened in Melbourne, where a woman may go to choose a husband.
    Among the instructions at the entrance is a description of how the store operates:

    You may visit this store ONLY ONCE!

    There are six floors and the value of the products increase as the shopper ascends the flights.
    The shopper may choose any item from a particular floor or may choose to go up to the next floor, but you cannot go back down except to exit the building!

    So, a woman goes to the Husband Store to find a husband.

    On the first floor the sign on the door reads:
    Floor 1 – These men Have Jobs

    She is intrigued, but continues to the second floor, where the sign reads:
    Floor 2 – These men Have Jobs and Love Kids.
    ‘That’s nice,’ she thinks, ‘but I want more.’

    So she continues upward. The third-floor sign reads:
    Floor 3 – These men Have Jobs, Love Kids, and are Extremely Good Looking.
    ‘Wow,’ she thinks but feels compelled to keep going.

    She goes to the fourth floor and the sign reads:
    Floor 4 – These men Have Jobs, Love Kids, are Drop-dead Good Looking and Help With Housework.
    ‘Oh, mercy me!’ she exclaims, ‘I can hardly stand it!’

    Still, she goes to the fifth floor and the sign reads:
    Floor 5 – These men Have Jobs, Love Kids, are Drop-dead Gorgeous, Help with Housework, Have a Strong Romantic Streak and a Good Sense of Humour.

    She is so tempted to stay, but she goes to the sixth floor, where the electric sign reads:
    Floor 6 – You are visitor 3,456,012 to this floor..
    There are no men on this floor. This floor exists solely as proof that women are impossible to please. Thank you for shopping at the Husband Store.

    PLEASE NOTE:
    To avoid gender bias charges, the store’s owner opened a New Wives store just across the street.

    The first floor has wives that love sex.

    The second floor has wives that love sex, have money and like beer.

    The third, fourth, fifth and sixth floors have never been visited.

  3. Just stopping in to say hi! I actually am so out of touch that I forgot the All Star race. Raining here for a week. I can hide in my lawn grass. Hoping for some sun today! Hope you all have some sun and a great week. Looks like Harvick is on a roll. BBB must be nut.

    I could have dealt with that when he was driving Chevrolets.
    But now, it’s just as obnoxious as a Gibbs Turdota driver winning anymore.
    Glad that I didn’t bother to even watch the race.

      NA$CRAP has emailed me an invitation to be on their fan council.
      And I accepted. LOL!

      I found that they only want a survey answered with nothing but check boxes with their predetermined questions. No way for me to make any statements or comments of my own about how they have ruined the sport and drove away most of the fans.

      So they only want their fabricated “truth” responded to and not hear the real facts of the matter.

  7. One day a farmer’s donkey fell down into a
    well. The animal cried piteously for hours as
    the farmer tried to figure out what to do.

    Finally, he decided the animal was old, and the
    well needed to be covered up anyway;
    it just wasn’t worth it to retrieve the donkey.

    He invited all his neighbors to come over
    and help him. They all grabbed a shovel and began
    to shovel dirt into the well. At first, the
    donkey realized what was happening and cried
    horribly. Then, to everyone’s amazement he
    quieted down.

    A few shovel loads later, the farmer finally
    looked down the well. He was astonished at what
    he saw. With each shovel of dirt that hit his
    back, the donkey was doing something amazing.
    he would shake it off and take a step up.

    As the farmer’s neighbors continued to shovel
    dirt on top of the animal, he would shake it
    off and take a step up.

    Pretty soon, everyone was amazed as the donkey
    stepped up over the edge of the well and
    happily trotted off!

    Life is going to shovel dirt on you, all kinds
    of dirt. The trick to getting out of the well
    is to shake it off and take a step up. Each of
    our troubles is a steppingstone. We can get out
    of the deepest wells just by not stopping,
    never giving up! Shake it off and take a step up.

    Remember the five simple rules to be happy:

    Free your heart from hatred – – Forgive.

    Free your mind from worries – – Most never happen.

    Live simply and appreciate what you have.

    Give more.

    Expect less.

    NOW…………

    Enough of that crap . ..The donkey later came back,
    and bit the farmer who had tried to bury him.
    The gash from the bite got infected and
    the farmer eventually died in agony from septic shock..

    MORAL FROM TODAY’S LESSON:

    When you do something wrong,
    and try to cover your ass,
    it always comes back to bite you.

    You have two choices…smile and close this
    page, or pass this along to someone else to
    spread the fun.

      NA$CRAP can’t have another uppity Chevrolet team and driver doing well?
      Just like how they had co-incidentally busted that new guy Spencer Gallagher for drugs right after daring to win that Xfinity race a couple of weeks ago?

  11. My wife has these days when she wants us to “talk about things”.

    We were discussing aspects of our future so when it was my turn
    I asked her “What will you do if I die before you do?”

    After some thought, she said that she’d probably look for
    a house-sharing situation with three other single or widowed women
    who might be a little younger than herself, since she is so
    active for her age.

    Then she asked me, “What will you do if I die first?”
    I replied, “Probably the same thing.”

  12. A fifteen-year-old Amish boy and his father were in a mall. They were amazed by almost everything they saw, but especially by two shiny, silver walls that could move apart and then slide back together again.

    The boy asked, ‘What is this Father?’
    The father (never having seen an elevator) responded, ‘Son, I have never seen anything like this in my life, I don’t know what it is.’

    While the boy and his father were watching with amazement, a fat old lady in a wheelchair moved up to the moving walls and pressed a button. The walls opened, and the lady rolled between them into a small room. The walls closed and the boy and his father watched the small numbers above the walls light up sequentially.

    They continued to watch until it reached the last number. and then the numbers began to light in the reverse order.
    Finally, the walls opened up again and a gorgeous 24-year-old blond stepped out.

    The father, not taking his eyes off the young woman, said quietly to his son…
    ‘Go get your Mother’

  13. CALL THE POLICE – WHEN YOU’RE OLD, AND YOU DON’T MOVE FAST ANYMORE.

    George Phillips, an elderly man from Walled Lake, Michigan, was going up to bed when his wife told him that he’d left the light on in the garden shed, which she could see from the bedroom window. George opened the back door to go turn off the light but saw that there were people in the shed stealing things.

    He phoned the police, who asked: “Is someone in your house?”

    He said “No,” but some people are breaking into my garden shed and
    stealing from me.”

    Then the police dispatcher said “All patrols are busy, you should lock your
    doors and an officer will be along when one is available”

    George said, “Okay.” He hung up the phone and counted to 30.
    Then he phoned the police again.

    “Hello, I just called you a few seconds ago because there were people stealing things from my shed. Well, you don’t have to worry about them now because I just shot and killed them both; the dogs are eating them right now,” and he hung up.

    Within five minutes, six Police Cars, a SWAT Team, a Helicopter, two Fire
    Trucks, a Paramedic, and an Ambulance showed up at the Phillips’ residence,
    and caught the burglars red-handed.

    One of the Policemen said to George, “I thought you said that you’d shot them!”

    George said, “I thought you said there was nobody available!”

    (True Story)

    1. Then they probably arrested the home owner for filing a false police report and lying to 911?

      A judge has ruled decades ago that it’s perfectly alright for the police to lie to you, but not the other way around.

      There was a show on A&E a few years ago with Louisville police detectives (here where I live) telling a suspect a plethora of lies to manipulate a confession of of him and it had worked. Then the suspect was super pissed that he had trusted the detectives and was deliberately lied to. Then after the detectives bragged to him that it was perfectly legal for them to do so and tough luck. That showed what low life lying scumbags that some police can be and are. The ends do not always justify the means. They prosecute people for lying to them but are immune from the same when they lie to us. Reminds me of most politicians.

Most judges are sensitive to seniors in matters of home safety….. The sheriff here in Hanover County hold classes one a year for senior safety and tell them to make sue the burglars is inside before one shoots them, also don’t just wound them, as that leads to future liability suites against their estate…. just saying

    1. I suspect that NA$CAR designed the rules to purposely keep HMS and Chevrolet from doing as well as the Turdotas and Fords.

      There were many whiners on social media for the last few years that complained that NA$CAR favored HMS and Chevrolet too much and they were winning too much and they didn’t want to watch the races anymore, hence why NA$CRAP allowed Turdota to have the special vent hole modification under the radiator support that they didn’t allow the other two makes to have until this year.

      Never mind that the whiners were most likely paid professional trolls paid by Turdota to get NA$CRAP to change the rules to their favor, again. Yes, there are lots of paid internet trolls out there who are hired by crooked government agencies as well as crooked corporations to manipulate public opinion through propaganda.

      What you read on twitter, facebook and other such forums aren’t always ordinary people like us.
      In fact most of them are fake, made up trolls.

  18. Talk about more NA$CAR style greed?
    NBC sure has it too.

    Today the running of the Kentucky Oaks at Churchill downs was not shown on broadcast TV for the first time in it’s 144 years since before TV was invented.
    Unless one had a paid premium to the cable/satellite channel NBCSN today, they did not get to see it until a half hour after the fact on the local news here. Not even the NBC local affiliate got to show the race live.
    This used to be Louisville’s day at the downs (us local less than wealthy types) as the Derby is more attended by the super rich out of towners. This race as well as the Ky. derby has always appeared on the local TV broadcast live here, well up until now.

    This corporate greed bullshit has got to stop.
    They are finding more and more ways of doing away with free things and compelling more people to have to fork over their hard money just to get the same things they used to for free; sports coverage that’s still plagued the majority of the time with their fucking commercials. Yep, making people have to actually pay now to watch advertising that they are also paid to put on. What a fucking racket?!
    And unless you pay them and put up with that shit, you won’t get to watch the few minutes of the sport or show that you want for each hour of their fucking commercials.
    Only in America!

        Most drag cars use automatics and even pro stocks have a slip clutch that mimics an automatic’s toque converter.
        The torque converter multiplies the torque by allowing the engine to rise up to a higher RPM and puts it in it’s power band and doesn’t bog down the engine like a clutch/stick does unless you ride the pedal to let it slip.

      I have looked it up, it’s supposed to be Scottish/Spanish for “Island”.

      Sort of unusual?

      That doesn’t jibe/match up to Earnhardt which is a Bavarian/German name?
      I guess that Junior and Amy didn’t ever consider this sort of name trivia when they picked out her name?

      My mother made sure that my name and those of my brothers had all matched up as far as ethnicity origins go. First, middle and last names are all Irish.

      And she made sure that we had names that other kids wouldn’t pick on, mock and ridicule.

      But as always the punk kids sure found a way to do just that to my first name anyhow, made me learn how to fight at an early age.

    Sadler was leading with less than 30 to go, the 42 beside him entering pit road, Sadler tapped the gas to avoid being hit, sped and got sent to the back a lap down.

    The Allgaier was leading with a 22 second lead with only 6 laps to go when the 21 car blew a tire, caution came out, extra laps and he ran out of gas before the restart.

    Both still managed to catch back up quickly and finish inside of top 5 however.
    It was a decent race without all of the buschwhackers.
    Many of them were all inside of the broadcast booth and on pit road hosting for Fox and they did a good job.

    Let the gas prices go back up into the $4+ range with an economy slow down and they’ll go right back to buying the cramped “knees on the chest” sub-compact cars and hybrids again.
