Owweee! Sounds like my hubby. Half his knee is artificial now. He's lots of fun at airport security when the guards refuse to believe that his knee will set off the detectors.

Heya, BJ! We can wave to each other at 4 a.m. my time, 6 p.m. yours now and then. Hubby works a 6-3 shift, so we both get up at 4:00, not fully by any means, I hasten to add.

The primary difficulty is that we don't go to sleep at a normal adult time. We're yawning with the toddlers at 8 p.m. which makes our social life somewhat interesting. Sleep

Just keep Fred away from matches he don't know how to use em. We sure do keep our fire dept busy though
Fred drinks his own rot gut hooch (don't anyone else try it. No-one else has lived past the test.)

I hear tell Charlene our bearded bartender and hubby Bert are back in town and lookin' for work. Naturally we'll take her on. After all she's my protege even if Bert done taught her all she knows most things bout life.

I still taught her how to be a great barkeeper. She's the only gal who can tackle Fred to the floor & hold him there til the fire brigade come.

I'll have to search our photo album to find a photo of Charlene. She's a little hirsuite, but nobody lets that worry them. We's hoping our Bette will come over to help out, tho Bette only does combinations of 2 mixers. You either get Brandy & coke, brandy & dry or brandy & ice.

Bye all, will catch you all soon.

Luv,BJ.

Hi Everyone. I'm new here. This is my First post on YS.

Alex, looks like BJ has used your Thread to make an off-topic introduction, but Hey!!! Most of us are family from you-know-where.

BJ wants to set up a Saloon. Not "The DAWG", because that really is the property of other folks, & we don't wish to take advantage of that Title.

BJ has taken a liking to "The Billabong", so we'll be setting up The Billabong Saloon here of the CD Board.

'Family' will be familiar with the concept of the Saloon. A watering hole for folks to come in and socialise between bouts of debate. We can make jokes, sit and buy a round of drinks for friends and foes, put on some entertainment, go bowling, have a spa bath and dip in the pool, smash a few chairs, go the the dunnies and partake of the gumball machines, discuss movies, etc. All here on the CD Board.

BJ hopes everyone will pop in and share a drink, have a nibble, offer prayers and requests, and just put a muman side to the folks were debate with and against.

BJ is having the day off. She overdid it yesterday at the computer and is recuperating in bed. But she sends everyone her love. Looks like she'll make some new friends judging from some comments, so please pop into the saloon once it's set up.

Fred

Very Happy

Saloon? Did I hear we're getting a saloon? I hope it'll be near a monorail station 'cause I'll be safer that way.

Re. the "dawg" thing... For what it's worth... They don't hold the copyright on the nickname "dawg"...
We had an irate, mean old ... well, BITCH, at the store awhile back. She was cursing out an 18 year old cashier, had the girl near tears. Then she came to the return desk after a head cashier intervened and told her "Take it to Tina at the return desk and she'll correct any errors on the sale"...
She came in, literally, screaming and cursing. Shoved 3 other ladies out of line, one would have hit the floor but a man walking in caught her just in time.
Anyway... this old bat is screaming at me and leaning over my counter. I just looked her dead in the eye and told her..."You may THINK you can cuss out an 18 year old KID, but let me tell YOU, LADY.. I am 45 years old, and I will NEVER be paid enough to have someone speak to me that way!! You go to the BACK of the line and WAIT YOUR TURN like everyone else or I will close this desk and you won't get a refund at all!"
When she got her turn she was still cursing and actually raised her hand and I very calmly, and very ssslllloooowwwwllllyyyy, smiled and pointed at the cameras around my desk and said.. "Old woman, you put that hand down or I WILL have your ass arrested before you get to the door"...
After she left, much quieter than when she came in, the store manager came up and said.. "WHOA! T'Dawg! I thought I was gonna have to come to your rescue. I never expected that from you. Where'd that come from?"
From that day on I've been "T'Dawg". Our H.R. manager even made me a nametag with T'Dawg on it. LOL

It just pissed me off SO bad that she cursed that little girl. THEN had the nerve to raise her hand to me... I don't know what I would have done if she had actually gone thru with whatever she was thinking of doing.

I do think we need a different name. We do need a "Saloon" of our own, but with a new name. We don't want anyone to whine about copying the "other" place.

The little girl cashier is very special to all of us. She's a sweetheart, cute as a button, smart, a very hard worker, will do anything she's asked to do.
Her gramma had been sick, had just gone into hospice that day. She's like a daughter or granddaughter to most of the cashiers.
Plus, no one raises their hand to me.... ever.
