gee john......I don't know who "dissed" you.......but they must be a "ton of grump" with no sense of humor.......I have no idea how awful it would be ..not being able to laugh....keep it up....I love reading your posts

i am still amazed at the amount and range of the comments this puzzle still gets

I saw that John,
I received one of those about three weeks ago. I have not lost an ounce of sleep.:)

jals

John,
Clearly whoever shot you down didn't know what they were doing. Ignore them. Too many people think they're experts on everything.

rswestley

Thanks Bev... you are too kind, but I am sure you know that one man's treasure is another man's bowl of lima beans. I got slapped down earlier today because I was showing signs of being sarcastic... or was it gymnastic? elastic? or maybe monastic? Well, whatever it was, he/she wasn't amused...

Sorry to hear about your behind. If you need a ride to the lost and found department just let me know...

No shit
I am rolling on the floor laughing my behind off. You, John , are a shot in the arm.
Did you ever think of writing a book of comedy? Maybe somewhere along the line I may have asked this question. You are one hell of a funny man.
Keep that light on...:))

rswestley

Bev!! I left the porch light on for you and over a year later, you finally made it! Glad you could stop in for a hefty helping of Spam. No, no... I insist. A lot of my guests didn't want any Spam so I have plenty of leftovers in the fridge. I read that an open can of Spam will last 10 years at room temperature and 25 years under refrigeration, so I'm sure it will be fine... just scrape of the green and blue dots

Bev, my Dad grew up as a farmer, so he was familiar with eating pig cheeks and snouts so he loved Spam. He also loved corn meal mush and it seems as if no one knows of the goodness of mush. Now it is soy sausage, imitation eggs and gluten free bread. Oh how I long for the good old days...

Thanks for stopping in Bev. Stop in any time, the door is always open
@bevpuzzler8

@rswestley
Holy Cow, I just noticed the date ….I thought this was last year and it is from 11-23-2017.

@rswestley
I got to scrolling about and came across this puzzle. There are a number of hits on it and I am not one of them. I decided to join in today Thanksgiving or not. I read about Indiana's time change, which I think sucks. As for Spam, my husband loved it, no matter if it was plain or doctored he loved it. My T. Day was a day of sad. Today I am a little better and I hope all had a great day.
Three cheers for Spam...and thank you John, the tan man. :)) January 19,2019...4:32pm

mackabroin

well being a woman john......I agree with dawn........the reception is VERY important.......and I am sure you had a lovely time.......lol

Bubble

You and me both kid !! :-000

firstdawn

I bought some spam because I haven't eaten it for a long time. NOW I remember why I haven't eaten it for a long time...YUCK!!!

Bubble

We ate quite a lot of spam in England, back in the old days. Still available here, but wouldn't eat it again, knowing whats in it. Fun ad though, rs - :-))

firstdawn

Nope!

rswestley

Dawn.... you do know I was kidding about my sister's reception, right? RIGHT??

firstdawn

lol

rswestley

Dawn... that's where men and women differ. Women think the wedding reception is important, even though the wedding was months ago. Men on the other hand think the final weekend of college football which decides which teams will be in the playoffs is more important. I suggested a compromise... all the women could wear cheerleader outfits, we could deck the halls with big screen TVs and have music provided by the USC marching band. Beer, nachos and brats instead of wine, grilled chicken and rice pilaf. She didn't go for it... in fact, she had her reception at a winery in the middle of NOWHERE and I couldn't even get a signal to check the scores on my phone. OH.... did I call her my sister? Correct that... my FORMER sister

jals

Like Pinky and the Brain, Joe?
John,
I do like the idea of everyone pouring a little something in the bottle. :-)

wjl1015

Sounds like fun John!! Should we call you "Pinky" from now on? Just a thought....

firstdawn

I think the reception was necessary. Kind of putting a bow on the package.

rswestley

If any of you are feeling neglected or having withdrawal pains because I wasn't around to give you your daily dose of anguish yesterday, I'll try to make it up to all of you today. Yesterday I went to my sister's wedding reception. She actually eloped about 6 months ago to a guy we all know, so not sure why she had a reception... but I never pass up a chance for free food. She had a "sand ceremony" performed at the reception... each of her relatives were assigned a bottle of a different color of sand to represent their best qualities, and then we all took turns, one at a time, pouring our designated colored sand into a bottle. Of course all the while the arbitrator, mediator, stand up comedian or whatever she was introduced each of us and explained why we were assigned specific colors. After the final layer of the sand was poured into the bottle it looked pretty cool... like a tall tootie fruitie from the local Dairy Cream. My brother's sand was yellow: the color of the mind and the intellect. My sister's sand was purple: the color of the imagination (she thought we were all having a good time). Her husband's color was red and white polka dots: the color of a fool or someone easily deceived and of course my color was drunk-tank pink: the color associated with ignorance, social ineptitude and the underworld. There were other colors but if you keep reading you may become comatose... and my liability insurance has expired...

firstdawn

I'll bring a sponge to mop you up!!!

firstdawn

Gosh Donna! Moving, house sale and the holidays. I'd be a puddle by Dec 26th.

jals

Yes, you can have as many accounts as you like, as far as I know. I'm aware of one person who has multiple accounts.

Donna,
I hope your house sale goes through without a hitch!

pasta

Yes Dawn, I believe you can.☺♥☺

firstdawn

If I was a Prat, couldn't I just change my name and prat a site under that new name?

pasta

Not a bad idea, in case he is still around.☺♥☺

wjl1015

I must have missed something here Judy. Who was it that was harassing you?

irisriver

jals I am major cautious here. I used to think I was being silly but now I can see I am not. The whole crazy world is like that now, total trust is impossible.

jals

Donna,
You'll be okay. My mistake was to let him have my email address. I had gotten so used to trusting the people at Joe's Place that I mistakenly thought I could trust this person. As I said, he did not show any of that side of him on his puzzles, so I thought he was trustworthy. Thankfully, I didn't give him an email with any identifying information on it.
I know when you were all exchanging addresses last year for Christmas cards and I said, I wasn't comfortable giving mine out on the internet, people joked about it, and made light of it. I still think it's better to be careful.

jals

Good one, Heidi! LOL

jals

Clive,
Why are you being so mean to BadBob? He hasn't said anything out of turn, has he?

firstdawn

Had to look up what a "Prat" is, kind of like a "troll", wanting to cause disharmony.

rswestley

Great comment Heidi!... and thanks for the encouragement

Clive, I just retracted my invitation to the aforementioned "Pratt". Unfortunately I do not have the latest Microsoft version of "Passport Checker" so I was not able to determine where he was from. I'm trusting your good judgement... Father Knows Best

Surreal_Heidi

Don't insult Pratts, Clive. One of my all-time favorite actors was born William Pratt.

(It's Boris Karloff)

Surreal_Heidi

That person who gets molested every 2 minutes is probably tired of it by now, John. It should be your turn soon.

jals

John,
That is awesome. That is as it should be. She will grow up to be a wonderful person with a dad like that!
As for you being molested, you are on your own, bud. I will have no part in that. So you can thank me now. :-)

Dawn,
I am like you and have had to work at being different a little. I hate that I can't be open and trusting with everyone, but you can't.

rswestley

Sorry... I feel as if I taken this puzzle hostage... but one more comment and then I will go back to picking up poop in the backyard... (that's when I do my best thinking)

Judy, funny you should mention the "unsavory" characters lurking about... not just here, but anywhere you find WiFi. I for one feel very safe and secure (dammit). I read that someone gets sexually molested every 2 minutes in the US.... and I am still waiting for my turn. 50+ years I have been waiting and now that I am old, fat and crepey (not creepy - crepey) I doubt if my turn is ever going to come. OH! But maybe if I ask Santa Clause....

rswestley

Judy, much too my amazement my stepson has turned into a magnificent Dad. I don't think I have ever seen a Dad dote over their child as he does. Always has the time to play with her, read to her, take her for walks, snuggle. He's wonderful. May explain why when we were at a restaurant last month she was reading things off the menu... and she's only 3 years old. Hell, I couldn't read till I was almost 15.

rswestley

Wow badbob6400, your comment about Vienna sausage may open another can of worms (so to speak) for us to ponder.... like should we let chickens cross the road unaccompanied? or only with adult supervision? I'm leaning towards letting them cross that yellow line on their own.... that may sound cruel, but I have always preferred my eggs scrambled.

firstdawn

Wow Judy. I lean towards a "Pollyanna" gullibility. Thanks for the warning.

wonder what a can of vienna sausage would bring

i take my last comment back.....i have never seen a puzzle have this many comments about such a myirad of thinks...moonwalks..morons...violence.....and all this from a can of spam...wonder what the world will bring us next...just a ponder for thought

jals

Iris,
Mothers are the unsung heroes, I think, but I also think there are some pretty terrific dads out there. Including the men in our group.
However, I had the unfortunate experience of receiving a creepy email from a man on Jigidi recently. He was someone I thought I could trust as I had exchanged comments with him and his wife, they share an account. I followed him and enjoyed doing his puzzles and tried to leave pleasant and friendly comments on his puzzles. He never acted out of line on there and I had no reason to suspect anything of him which is why I gave him one of my email addresses as he was supposed to send me their physical address. He did not send me the address, instead he made inappropriate comments and I was put off. I did not answer him. I did share his comments with a few trusted people, including a couple on Jigidi, my husband (I showed it to him first) and one of my best friends. They all had the same reaction I did. It was creepy.
So I guess why I'm telling this now is to say everyone should really be careful on here. We like to think everyone is just friendly and honest like we are, but there are people on here also that are just like the creeps in real life.

irisriver

I love Bob's comment about moms. They are sacred treasures. Good to hear men who are against disrespecting a woman after hearing all the bad media celeb stories. Rug beating was one of my 86 year old mom's chores growing up. She preferred it to working indoors. I saw spam at grocery store last night and thought of this site. Did not buy any this time though.

jals

Be careful John.

firstdawn

Grandpa called his truck "Bucket O' Bolts".

rswestley

Bob, I was actually wondering if anyone would know that when I referred to "Ole Betsy" that I was referring to my car. You've done your homework. Lord knows I wouldn't dare call my wife "Ole Betsy"... I was hoping to enjoy at least one more Christmas....

firstdawn

Sounds like a Vega I once owned. I was the car that had to pull over onto the side to let other faster cars pass by up in the mountains. Driving over the Continental Divide on the way to Yellowstone was awful. I swear that engine ran on 2 squirrels running inside a wheel.

Hismorts

John, I was telling a friend of mine that there is a park near here that's just loaded with pines full of cones. It takes about two hours to get to in my 49 Ford pick-up or an hour on foot. So I can relate to "Old Betsy"!

rswestley

That's very true Dawn. More than once I have been run off the road and end up in a ditch and at my age it is much harder to get ole "Betsy" back on the road. Fortunately I have AAA and they come and rescue my car, offer me a beer or gleefully offer to call the crematorium to make my reservations.

firstdawn

Let's not forget that mem can be abused too. Verbally criticized and put down. I worked with a friend who always found something to compliment her husband about. She had gotten it from a book she read. Always find something to sincerely compliment your husband about. She had slowly gotten him to change the way he dressed at work. Tucking his T shirt in, then wearing a belt, then a button down shirt and slacks. Over a few years his change in dress signaled him out from others causing management to notice and he was slowly raised in the ranks. I believe all due to Dixie complimenting and supporting her husband.

Hismorts

Well, like Joe... I pound the chicken breasts with a meat tenderizer to make my cordon bleu, I usually whip my cream cheese, I slap a couple of steaks on the old BBQ and although I don't mince words, I do mince garlic and other things! That's about the extent of the violence in Bob's house.

jals

And some are so emotionally and verbally abused, they don't believe they can make it on their own. Their abuser has controlled them so much they can't imagine a life without him. He controls their mind as well.
Look at some of the girls who have been kidnapped, like Elizabeth Smart. Mind control has a lot to do with it.

firstdawn

Many women fear for their lives if they were to leave. Some are trapped to the point of immobility to leave. Women go to work with a black eye and no one questions their lies to cover up their abuse. Some haven't the finances to escape with kids in tow. Not every town has a safe house.

wjl1015

Depends on my mood and my pain level......lol

mackabroin

lol joe.......I am sure....and you probably go easy on the rug.....lol

wjl1015

The only thing I beat are eggs, and the occasional rug....

mackabroin

lol neville.....just run for your life......I am very slow.....so I won't ever "catch" you.......lol

ulangariver

Robin, you can cook for me any time, but if I see you waving the frypan around.............. ♥♥♥

wjl1015

Remind me never to upset you Robin!! lol :))

mackabroin

I don't understand it either.......I guess some (mostly) women......but not all...just can't stand up for themselves.....it is sad when either one is a "beater"......lol......I would knock them on the bean with a frypan.....lol

CJ45

I agree Sir Joe.

jals

Smiles Bob. :-))

wjl1015

That is something I will NEVER understand Clive!!

CJ45

Sadly Bob there are some guys that bash their love ones up for sheer pleasure. Which I can never understand why and their love ones still stay with them ?!!!

wjl1015

Yes they are Bob! I'm very lucky to have my mom still here (at 88!) and healthy!!

Hismorts

Smiles, Judy! A little? Ya think? Hmm!!! ((:-))

Dawn, you just said a mouthful! I don't know a real cowboy at any age that would show even the slightest bit of disrespect toward their mom. Or they'd learn real quick from the wrong side of Dad's belt buckle or even big brothers right cross for that matter! Mom's are sacred and always will be!! And that's because it's how it should be!!

jals

No, not the best, Bob. There is a little of the chauvenist in them, I'm afraid. Though they would all deny it.

firstdawn

I think most cowboys are very well mannered (or their Mamas would rip off their little arms and beat them over the head with them)!

Hismorts

They don't listen?? What a shame. I'll bet they could learn a thing or two and be politely entertained while doing so!! And as for the hats, well, I would never moonwalk in the house. That's like playing ball or hog tying the dog. Strictly outdoors stuff!! ((:-))

jals

Well geeze, John. don't be shy, please speak up and tell me how you really feel!

I was always taught Bob, that hats were poor manners inside. So that is what I taught my sons and have tried to enforce with my husband but I'm afraid they don't listen to me.

firstdawn

:-))

Hismorts

No hat? No self-respecting southerner would ever go out without his hat! Why, that's almost anti-moral!! Without his hat! Bah! These kids today, boy. I'll tell ya!

jals

oops I forgot you, Bob. Didn't really forget you. Saved the best for last. ;-)

Do you ever watch The Voice. Blake Shelton moonwalks on there in his cowboy boots. No hat. ;-)

jals

Funny stuff here.
Kathleen, you are welcome! I'm hoping more picked up on it, but just didn't mention it.

Dawn, the Pink umbrella and matching tutu sounds delightful. We need pictures.

Ken and Nev, you crack me up and of course, John, you are always a riot, a scream, a gas, oh yes, that's it. A gas!

And Joe, such timely comments which are sooo appropriate!

firstdawn

LOL, good comeback!

Hismorts

Hmm... I've seen many an ox and a few real morons in my time. But you are right, Dawn. I never saw one moonwalking.

firstdawn

Moonwalking in a cowboy hat sounds like an oxymoron!

Hismorts

Ken, I can dance like Michael Jackson except when I moonwalk, I go forward. I just don't quite get it. But I'm not giving up either. You ever seen a poke in a cowboy hat moonwalk forward? It ain't purty!!

Surreal_Heidi

I can dance like Jean Kelley. I just can't dance like Gene Kelly.

firstdawn

I'm the one showing wisdom with prudence and am dancing with an umbrella (pink) to go with my tutu.

rswestley

Joe, you would be amazed at the number of invisible people that are dancing all around us and how difficult it is to tell who is who. Nev, it is very easy to distinguish me from the "Cascades" of other invisible people dancing (in my case stomping in the puddles) in the rain... I have the Prince of Jigidi (Joe) provide me with purple rain so that I am easily identified. And Ken, hold off on washing your tutu, the purple rain will stain all that frilly stuff around the borders.... and like my Mother used to say, there is nothing worse than an invisible guy dancing around in a stained tutu

klocowolf

Aww you guys are no fun. How else am I supposed to take a shower and clean my tutu? I'm fumble footed and can't dance like Jean Kelley.

ulangariver

John, Joe is right - there are "Cascades" of people out there wanting to see tutus get wet in that rhythm of the falling rain, so don't fall for that one!!
Nev.

wjl1015

Good to know!! I wouldn't want you confused with the other pink tutu wearing, mostly invisible people out there!!!

rswestley

That's right Kathleen, all you would see is a pink tutu waltzing around on the sidewalk. But beware... with all the pink tutus running around, don't settle for any cheap imitations. If you hear tap dancing and someone passing gas to the tune of "Listen To Rhythm Of The Falling Rain" coming from the pink tutu, that would be me...

John, if you, mostly invisible, wore a pink tutu, would just the tutu be visible? Cool!

John, was that the snow storm that put over 5 feet of snow on the northern Arizona reservations? I was living in Michigan then, teaching mathematics, and used myself as a measuring device (over 5 feet=over my head).
Thanks for the song, Judy.

firstdawn

My most favorite part of the trip was seeing the saguaro cactus in the desert. (Florida has it's Spanish moss hanging from the trees. Tennessee has the Smokey Mountains. California the ocean and Yosemite. And Yellowstone it's geysers.) But this was the first time I was in a desert so I enjoyed the scenery very much.

jals

John,
I would hate to see you turned into a saddle and I will refrain from any tasteless jokes at your expense.
Maybe you could make your way to Winslow and find a girl with a flatbed Ford.

firstdawn

Sorry, 1971.

rswestley

I hope you commemorated the event by having it tattooed on your left forearm... "I Survived The Arizona Snow Storm 1975". I'm assuming your trip was in 1975 at about the same time Travis Walton was abducted by a UFO in northern Arizona. Did you see any bright lights in the sky? Or see Travis Walton being pulled up into a cloud of swamp gas?

firstdawn

Call it the BBB time.

John, here were Mom's the rules is I was 20.
1. I was to stay only at Holiday Inns.

2. I was to estimate how far I was going to drive and make a reservation at the front desk each morning when I checked out. (Forgot my road atlas in Shreveport, Louisiana and had to buy some regular maps.) The desk clerks were very helpful. They assigned me a dirty room so I had a nice chat with the housekeeper while she cleaned up my room.

3. I could only drive during the daytime and only in safe conditions. I had to buy snow chains in Amarillo, Texas at a Sears store. I had never driven in snow. Forced stay in Flagstaff,
Arizona because of a snowstorm.

rswestley

Judy... That's just horse feathers. I'm thinkin' if I stand on the corner wearing a pink tutu I will get a ride... to Boot Hill. Some of the cow pokes around dees parts don't liken to guys wearin' tutus. They'd be most certain to get their hackles up, tan me and turn me into a saddle.

jals

Thanks Bob. "We can laugh about it now." Can you name that movie?
Do you have a bad back like the rest of us?

jals

John,
If you sing this song three times in a pink tutu and stand on the corner,
I promise you'll get all kinds of ride offers.


You put the boom boom into my heart,
You send my soul sky high when your lovin' starts.
Jitterbug into my brain,
Goes bang bang bang till my feet do the same.
But something's bugging me
Something ain't right
My best friend told me
Where you were last night.
Left me sleeping
In my bed.
I was dreaming
But I should've been with you instead.

PICK me up before you go go,
Don't leave me hanging on like a yo-yo.
Pick me up before you go go,
I don't want to miss it when you hit that high

PICK me up before you go go,
'Cause I'm not planning on going solo.

PICK me up before you go go,
Take me dancing tonight.
I want to hit that high
You get the gray skies outta my way,
You make the sun shine brighter than Doris Day.
Turn a mere spark into a flame,
My beats…
https://youtu.be/pIgZ7gMze7A

rswestley

Pick me up on your way buy?? Jeez, where's my OCD when I need it? I should have said "Pick me up on your way bye". What was I thinking??

Hismorts

John, there's always room for one more! And there's a saying where I come from that goes "Some days I'm the dog... Some days I'm the fire hydrant..." One of the reasons I left (after seeing the fire hydrant in Beaumont). I kinda wanted to go wind sailing on Lake Superior but then there's a chance I might hit a berg or something and end up sinking like the Edmond Fitzgerald and I don't think Gordon Lightfoot would even find it interesting. Oh... is that spinach can full?? If not, there's a guy that grew a 2,624 pound pumpkin if you don't mind going to Germany to see it!

Judy, Hey there!! "before bad backs" is a hoot!! Hey iris!!

rswestley

Hey Bob!! Pick me up on your way buy. I'll by the gas if you supply the tiramisu and the baklava to nibble on along the way. Oh... and can we stop in Alma, Arkansas to see the worlds largest Spinach Can and if it's not tooooooo much trouble, can we stop to see the World's Largest Fire Hydrant in Beaumont, Texas? I'm thinkin' that would be a good place for us to relieve ourselves
