Beau,

It's not that you don't KNOW what CRS is, it's that you can't REMEMBER what CRS is.

Is it time to get you some assisted living caregiving? The Mrs., can't do EVERYTHING!

LOL! Much more important than remembering Gartner's name or its address (couldn't think of Killingsworth) I know where it is and can always find it (although I can rarely afford to shop there).

I think Gelson's was either in Santa Monica or Sacramento.

And the place that killed our yearly steer and hung it and eventually butchered it was Keeners--in Bothell, Washington (I think they are still there).

dobebug ^^ Welcome to the chicken Flock Bug ... so are you left or right handed ?


Umm--I'm right handed except for a few things. I have an uncle who was born a lefty like John and you, Beau.

My uncle has readable writing (left handed) but the only reason he does is that he doesn't write script--he does engineering printing instead--his signature is the only thing in script and you can't read it at all.

However when I was working in a Marine Hardware store which paid very poorly I was also varnishing yachts in my spare time. I mostly worked for a guy who had a cliental of a bunch of power boat owners, whose boats tended to have tons of picky brightwork.

So when George, the guy I worked for, discovered that I could cut in varnished areas next to white paint he kept me permanently busy. Turns out I can cut in long lines of brightwork either left handed or right handed, right side up or upside down.

It also once got me a very lucrative job with a house painter who had me painting all of the window trim, inside and out on a huge Bel Aire (think Los Angeles) mansion.

Both painting and varnishing paid a whole lot better than working in a Marine Hardware store but the store gave me a good discount so that I could keep throwing money into the hole in the water which is the basic definition of a "boat".

So to some degree I'm ambidextrous--

I canít paint or anything needing fine detail either left or right--shaky hands.

I was born that way, so no comments about drinking too much or some other such thing, all of you reprobates out there.

I convert stuff from metric to English and vice versus only because I was a Chemistry major a long, long time ago.

But just plain being older than dirt accounts for some interesting anomalies.

C in temperature stood for Centigrade before it became Celsius--which means I have to stop and think about it when someone gives me a temperature reading Celsius.

I didn't stay a chemistry major (just for the record) and one of the reasons I don't much discuss politics has to do with what I actually have a degree in.

Dang! Well, if I can't tease you about having shaky hands what good are you Mel?

Must be one of the chicken list rules or something...

My preceding comment (#2909) was a response to Bugís post....not just a gratuitous proclamation of invulnerability.

Not that there is anything wrong with that.

Beau was 7.5 years old when the Beatles came on our black & white TV, on the farm.
- In the Hotel press room, Ringo saw a battery operated transistor radio (hand held), for the first time
- he saw it was real neat, hearing one of his songs

After the show - I started to let my hair grow a wee bit longer & my father dropped into the barber shop (parking his cement truck, on main street) and said to barber, "give those boys a real haircut".
- I could of spit bullets, into my old mans face / having short hair again
- and dad felt the total reject of our disapproval, over embarrassing us at the barber shop
- giving dad the cold shoulder, for a week or 2 , he finally allowed our hair length, down to our ear tops (at first)
- Granny loved us and said, "let the boys grow their hair longer"...she always took our side


POLL Question - How much were the Beatles paid to appear on The Ed Sullivan Show?
- anyone care to guess, without using google
- and share a reminiscing Beatle fan story


The Beatles American Debut on The Ed Sullivan Show 1964
http://www.edsullivan.com/the-beatle...n-show-1964-2/

On February 9, 1964, the British Invasion began with The Beatles playing live on The Ed Sullivan Show in front of an estimated 73 million Americans. Ed Sullivan introduced The Beatles, and was almost immediately drowned out by the screams of girls in the studio audience. The Beatles continued to play twice that evening on The Ed Sullivan Show and “Beatlemania” had officially arrived stateside. The exposure of The Beatles on The Ed Sullivan Show in 1964 became a touchstone event for an entire generation and for music lovers everywhere.

Never before had so many viewers tuned-in to a live television program, which with 73 million viewers, was three-fourths of the total adult audience in the United States. A music group from England had never crossed over into American culture in such a way, and, at the time, it wasn’t too common for a variety television show to book an English rock band. However, because Ed Sullivan traveled to England frequently, and had a great eye for talent, The Beatles caught his attention and earned a slot on his popular variety program on CBS.

As the legend goes, Ed Sullivan had seen the crowds of Beatles fans at London Airport trying to catch a glimpse of the band on their way back from touring Sweden in 1963. Again in 1963, The Beatles and Ed Sullivan’s paths collided, when he personally witnessed another huge airport reception before The Beatles played the Royal Variety Show. It became incredibly clear that The Beatles had taken over England, and were ready to ignite teenagers in America with their catchy pop songs, adorable personalities and witty banter.

Sullivan later told The New York Times, “I made up my mind that this was the same sort of mass hit hysteria that had characterized the Elvis Presley days.” With that, Ed Sullivan booked The Beatles American debut, which became a pivotal moment in American cultural history. In fact, many baby boomers still ask each other, “where were you when you heard The Beatles sing for the first time on The Ed Sullivan Show?”

Rock n’ Roll has never been the same since.

Okay! Whoa, Nelly.

I just got done watching a dog show, where the Dobe came in second to a Portuguese Water Dog. What?

It was a best in working class competition. And, I think the judge was paid off!

And, she was red!

Wow - even the young boy descending the cliff / what a thrill, at that age...and all supervised for safety.

Beau cliff hanging, on the farm @ 12 years old...dam near killed myself:

I graduated grade8 and had 2 months off during the summer holidays / prior to starting high school.
- one day we're up in the hay mow, making a fort / with one neighbor boy
- someone got the idea, to throw a big/heavy rope over the top of the hay mow and climb down
- about 40 ft, straight down / just like Batman would do
- neighbor Rick & my twin brother wanted to, B67 thought it was a bad idea
- I went first, because I thought if my twin did...he would fall & die
- so we went to the implement garage & got some loose leather gloves / prevent rope burn
- I went over the 90 degree hay bail face first / and my left glove got caught under the 3/4" diameter rope, hugging the bail edge
- now I am dangling 40 ft. from death, with only one hand holding on / other hand trapped under rope
- my twin was not strong enough, to pull me up but neighbor Rick was strong as heck / an amazing hockey & foot ball player
- he lifted me off the vertical wall face of the top hay bail
- my heart was pounding, "like a stupid little B-atch"...when I sat in safety and reflected
Went back to the house, "a good cat has 9 lives"...B67 used one, that afternoon, bc bored silly.

Yeah bug... You won. Even if you hadn't for actual age, nobody's got you beat with respect to years owning Dobermans. (1959?). Hell... I'm not even close at 1974.
Ah Me....

I think my friend Bonnie (Cressrb) is into her 70's also. But we'll not hear from her. She never shows up on this "chicken sh*t" thread. (Don't blame her!)

STJ! BJ BCJ John.....

However when I was working in a Marine Hardware store which paid very poorly I was also varnishing yachts in my spare time. I mostly worked for a guy who had a cliental of a bunch of power boat owners, whose boats tended to have tons of picky brightwork.

So when George, the guy I worked for, discovered that I could cut in varnished areas next to white paint he kept me permanently busy. Turns out I can cut in long lines of brightwork either left handed or right handed, right side up or upside down.

It also once got me a very lucrative job with a house painter who had me painting all of the window trim, inside and out on a huge Bel Aire (think Los Angeles) mansion.

Both painting and varnishing paid a whole lot better than working in a Marine Hardware store but the store gave me a good discount so that I could keep throwing money into the hole in the water which is the basic definition of a "boat".

So to some degree I'm ambidextrous--
One for you BUG - enjoyed your earlier painting skill & money making / factory painting earned me $3.25/hr (hehe).

My painting windows started in a full time summer job, starting at 16 y/o.
- at 18 I self taught myself to braze 19g sheet metal, fixing rusty cars ... controlling warpage is the trick
- my perfection, came from sanding auto body bondo...to be unseen, by the naked eye
- soon I fell in love, with spray painting the cheap cars I restored for DD'ers
- I had a gifted eye, to control the fan pattern and my last paint job in an implement garage...turned out better than the licensed shop in town

I still like to hand paint with enamel oil base / for outside doors, etc.
I recently source some quality exterior metal paint with urethane add, for extreme durability...got out of USA.
- last week I dug out 3 quarts of oil paint & had some fun
- painting a cast turtle, Mrs. Beau named Timmy
- still got some more bright blue to do, on some of the shell scales...little more free hand detail work

PS - the thinner lines was done, with the end of a small slotted screw driver / without a proper pinstripe brush.

Photo sideways / & don't know shy....enjoy our Timmy, staying inside over the winter !!

"SP - Glad to be done Saturday shift...I bet ?"

And, How!

I woke up at five this morning. Started dreading the thought of, the process of, going to work. Then, I realized thirty minutes into my morning grump, It's Sunday! Lucky, ME!
