I think Bug should get a ticket or somethin for not putting the goop on noodles.
This is just wrong Bug!

But it had over 300,000 miles with only routine service. My second one is what I'm driving now--it's a 1999 also short bed and retired from delivery truck for an Arizona furniture and appliance store (i know that because you can read the faint shadow on the side of the front where the Arizona sun altered the paint color (white). It had about 190,000 miles on it then and I've added not very many more in the 10+ years I've had it--maybe 3 or 4K not showing many dogs in anything more than a few agility trials and being sort of retired.

Given my tendency to keep stuff until it falls apart--if it hadn't been stolen I'd probably still be driving that first (1963) VW--it was 38hp--which meant it could hardly get up the hill going north from Portland to Seattle right after the bridge. And you had to be doing 70mph at the start to hope to be doing 35mph at the top (and that was when that section of I-5 didn't exist--it was Hwy 99 E.)

Gotta' go murder some maples.

ABTLH
Geeze, Kenny you think you should edit your stuff better? That bolded section should have been 30 or 40K--I've had that truck for 11 years now--while not driving to work at least 5 days a weeks and the great reduction in showing dogs cut way down accrued mileage it wasn't THAT much.

It's funny around here, in S. Central TX, when winter weather gets even slightly cold, the women haul out their mukluk boots and Russion ushanka fur hats. No reason the well appointed Dobe shouldn't have the same luxury?....

And when we travel up north in our AT-RV during winter, to visit Mel et al, we'll need winter gear...
I have to say, I kind of have to laugh at your "snow"...

I've used that same Star Trek patch on a custom coat I made. A customer wanted a Star Trek themed coat (actually a former member here!). Turned out super cute. I've made a couple of them now, a few for other Dobermans named Spock!

The shower door will be on us, but he could fix it while he's here.

Wish me luck.

Oh, and Missy had to have a small (pea sized) tumor removed from her shoulder on Wednesday. By the next morning, the incision was infected, and she's not a good patient. It has become a battle to get anything ON the incision. I'm not outright blaming the vet for the infection, but if Rich had driven Missy up to the "good vet" I don't think it would be infected. (I guess I AM blaming her for the infection.) Anyway, wish me luck getting THAT cleared up, too. (Topical penicillin because I'm brave, but not brave enough to try to give Missy a shot without sedating her with a 2x4, Neosporin, and raw honey.)

Situation normal for around here, I guess...
Glad to hear you got a good contractor, Lannie! That can be so hard to find. I'll be keeping Missy in my thoughts for that incision to get healed up.

In Reply to: Hotter than the hubs of Hades posted by Victoria S Dennis on June 16, 2008 at 12:58:

: : : I don't find "hotter than the hubs of Hades" in Phrase Finder. There's some speculation on other sites, but this is the one I trust. Does anyone have a definitive answer? It seems to be fairly common in the U.S (I first heard it over 50 years ago).

: : The word "hub" in this expression is a variant of hob, which means principally, according to the Oxford English Dictionary, "In a fire-place, the part of the casing having a surface level with the top of the grate." It is where you put things to keep them warm without burning up. I think, however, that being put on the hobs of Hades does put you in danger of burning up or at least of getting much too hot.

: : I don't think the expression is heard much in the U.S. nowadays. You'll more often hear, "hotter than the hinges of Hades."
: : SS

: This is a euphemism for "hotter than the hobs of Hell" which is certainly the earlier version. I've also come across "black as the hobs of Hell" in 19th-century literature. The hob of a fireplace is proverbially a black hot place, as is Hell; logically the hottest and blackest part of Hell should be its hobs. (VSD)

In the southwestern US here, I hear "hubs of hell" a lot and never hinges nor any variation with Hades. There must be regional differences."



And this:

As hard as the hobs of hell
Posted by Baceseras on October 16, 2007

In Reply to: As hard as the hobs of hell posted by Smokey Stover on October 16, 2007

: : I have heard s saying oft quoted in my family (which is based in Ireland):

: : 'As hard as the hobs of hell'

: : Of course it could be likely that this is a perversion of another saying.

: By another saying, are you thinking of "hot as the hinges of Hades"? It would make a little more sense to me if the saying quoted in your family were, "Hot as the hobs of hell." Hobs (or hubs) were surfaces in a fireplace or on a stove where things could be set in order to get warm or stay warm. They were hard, of course, since they were used as supports. But how hard does hard have to be for this purpose?
: SS

I heard "the knobs of hell", not hobs; and what were those knobs --- budding horns, perhaps?

I don't know if they were Irish at the root (not the horns, but the folks who said "knobs of hell"): possibly Scotch-Irish, by way of Appalachian.



And then there's this:

"My mother-in-law used to always use the phrase, “hotter than the Hubs of Hades”. Now, due to vocal exasperation from her daughter and my constant query, “exactly how hot are the Hubs of Hades?” she has quit using it. I really don’t think I will be getting an answer from her, so I turn to you, Jellies. How hot are they?"

"They’re actually kept cooler than the ambient temperature of 666. It might be an engineering snafu, but the hot tubs melt around 583 degrees, well before 666, leaving a hot puddle. Nobody likes a hot puddle. So, to contain the water, they actually cool it to a brisk 550 degrees. People go hot-tubbing to cool down.

It’s a bit of a misnomer really."
Holy cow Mel,

I got it from my sainted grandmother who was not a swearer under normal circumstances. Of French decent (La Brie was her maiden name and she and her mother discussed things they didn't want my mother and her sister and brother to understand in French, So my very French great grandmother who died before I was old enough to remember her, if she swore I guess it would have been in French--my grandmothers' strongest cuss word was that 'hell'.

And she only used it when referring to the extreme South Dakota summer temperatures.

Interesting the various permutations. Since Hades and hell were interchangable I expect that Hades was the polite version and hell was what the guys said around other guys. But it's the only version I'd ever heard in the midwest. I'll buy that hubs was an alternative version and probably regional of hobs.

Goodness...

And yeah I just wasted 2 minutes of your time telling you something you already knew. To cook on indirect heat, not that I was nuts

LOL! Hey TN--I 've done the old boil (actually I simmer it) the chicken before it goes on the BBQ so I don't end up with raw inside and black outside chicken. Actually I don't BBQ at all but my SO many years ago and his cuz were party animals who liked to have these big BBQ's and they'd be late getting started and everyone would be clamoring for food so after several such "parties" I started preprepping both the chicken and ribs--I'd pre simmer both of them and the guys did fine with burgers and sausages so they were on their own for those but I particularly hate raw on the inside burned on the outside chicken and the cuz caught on very quickly and he'd grab the pans of chicken and ribs from me and mop them with his BBQ sauce and give the burgers and sausages to my SO. Worked perfectly--meant I never did really learn how to properly BBQ anything.

I thought accidental double post got an escape freebee (I'll just borrow some of Kenny's GOOTWS free tickets.)
