Default Last post for a while, featuring non-audio gratuitous image

With all the furor caused by thr HH banning, and renewed feuding with ex-business associates, I am taking off for a few weeks.....maybe more. The Fall Out is more than I care to deal with right now. Maybe things will return to normal in the interim.

Meanwhile......to demonstrate my frustration level, here is a picture from the other day.

Someone asked I would help trim some shrubs. You would think that someone who is 50 would have more sense than to climb up onto the roof, and attack a shrub with an electric hedge trimmer. but no...........

Besides, they said the 2 magic words:

"Free pizza......!"

Look on the bright side. Think of all the extra time you'd get to spend here recovering from that hip fracture. And all the DIY projects you'll be able to afford when you collect from the subsequent lawsuit.

Wow, first the banning of HH, and now Jocko's deserted us I know that this place just won't be the same for me.

Jocko, I wish you luck with your ex-associates, come back to us quickly. I know that HH's banning must be tough on you, I sure do miss his incisive posts and helpful tips and links. Now with your leaving...

Cheers,
RonS

Jocko, is that really you?. You look <B>MUCH</B> younger than 50.
My first impression was: this is a picture of Woody Allen is his younger years.
