I said, "Yes."
Then she asked, "Where did they put all the dirt?"
I told her, "They put it in big trucks and hauled it to Washington State, and built Mt Rainier.
Of course she said, "Oh."

In her defense, although she was not blond, she was a cheerleader.

Can't quite decide if that's a brilliant segue to a new topic or a complete non sequitur.

Both, skunks were starting to bore me.

The new topic is dumb things EXs said.

Ken

PS, If you don't have an EX, then make something up, but make it convincing.

This is why I married a band nerd who went to medical school and became a doctor and have been happily married for 16 years. And she is a looker too... Swedish.

And no matter what I don't love skunks in 6 years they have killed at least 40 of my chickens...

Does she tell stories that start out with, "One time at band camp...." ?

I have been trying to convince my wife for 26 years she should go to medical school so I could get an appointment when I needed it instead of when I recovered or died of whatever I had. No luck.

As far as visibility, I can't see Grand Mesa today and the West Elks are shadowy. Sometimes we can't see more than a mile or two, other times we can see 40 miles, but is it vague. Sunsets are very red because of the smoke. At least few or any of the fires are in Colorado now, but the rest of the west is doing badly. We don't smell smoke, so the fires are pretty far. We've smelled smoke when fires were only a couple of hundred miles way, so these must be further.

We hardly even argue anymore. The Forum has been sanitized—no fun, no silliness, no arguing, no nothing.

I wish, that would be great. I have seen pictures in her blue band out fit. Wish she still had it


Ok, time for the arguement.

THIN, THICK, or PAN style pizza crust.

and the answer is THICK!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Thin comes in second...

Big deal, I can't ever see Grand Mesa, and I'm not even sure who the Big Elk is. What's his name?

"We hardly even argue anymore. The Forum has been sanitized—no fun, no silliness, no arguing, no nothing."

That's a total distortion of the facts. Are you a politician?

I don't know how anyone who comes from the northwest thinks they know anything about pizza. Thick is the worst, pan is not proper pizza, and thin crust is the right crust, but in this county, all the pizza is disappointing at best.

Ken, you can't see Grand mesa because you aren't tall enough—at least climb up to the top of the Front Range and look west about 200 miles—and don't forget your smoke-eliminating binoculars (available at fine stores everywhere).

I am not a politician because I do distort facts; politicians distort factoids, opinions, and lie about facts. These distinctions may be too subtle for the cat obsessed. A dog would understand.

I do not take responsibility for anything I have posted lately because of the smoke in the air which causes brain damage.

WRONG! Thin is the only real pizza (unless you are in Chicago).
