Na na na na naaaaa, You missed,,, we did not get snow here. Look like everwhere but here. I even rode my scooter today its 50 degrees and sunny. VV you keep playing with that Voo Doo and your going to have trouble holding that snow shovel. Far as I know ,Toads, dont have thumbs.

We had snow here in Houston.  I called my brother and parents, all excited.  They were less impressed, but of course they live in Indianapolis and Boston and snow for them isn't much to get excited about.  We're supposed to be in the 70s tomorrow.

At the moment, I'm worried about my parents.  They had an ice storm in New England last night and the power went out.  According to the news, more than a million are without power at the moment, and Mom and Dad aren't expected to have power back until Sunday.  As of about 10 this morning it was 59 degrees in their house, and it's supposed to be really cold tonight.

Hey Bek - we lost power in the ice storm too but ours is back on. If your parents live in cold climates they probably have a wood stove or some extra heavy blankets/winter sleeping bags for occassions like this. It really is a pain though! I know Maine, NH and parts of Mass were effected.

I also have bad acid reflux and have been on PPI's since age 13. I have been through prilosec, prevacid, and nexium. Currently I am on Protonix in the morning and Zantac at night. I also take a birth control pill to allow some fun in my life.

I know they've got plenty of blankets, but they don't have an alternate heat sourch.  They have a fireplace, but they never use it, and the wood they had has rotted.  The gas stove is working at least.  They can't use it for heat, but they can make hot soup or tea, and if she bakes something the extra heat will at least warm up the kitchen a bit.  I'm most worried because their phone isn't working.  Their cells work, but they'll lose charge quickly.  They don't act old, but Dad is almost 70 and they've both had some medical problems in the last few years.  I'm worried that something will happen and they won't be able to get help.

hey, gail, he admitted to me that he got sleet......enough sleet that he couldn't ride that day. and, he couldn't ride the next day because it turned all the dirt on the roads, from the cane trucks, to mud. so, he's just hoisting up a facade with all this snow shovel and toad talk. neener, neener? turn i haven't heard that for years. is that what he said? well, i see his neener and raise him a "well, yer a big dumb bunny"! (that's what one of my classmates in 8th grade came up with for a nun that was giving him the 3rd degree about a party we were'nt supposed to attend, as he exited the building.) smhair boy, i've been holdin' that one for 46 years waiting for just the the right moment. tongue

VV you cant remember I said I could not ride because it was raining and you expect us to believe you remember the eight grade. That was probable a collage party you think you crashed and found out you were in a nunnery. You have to kick that habit of trying to get into a habit. Now , whats up with the Voo Doo ? I'll bet that nun would rap your nuckles. Once again I am warning you that Voo Doo is not for a novice. You could accidentally turn yourself into something more ugly. I know thats hard to believe,,but its true. I know you have bad knees but think of becoming a toad. You know they bounce their butts on the ground with ever hop. Your local VA wont pay for that. I dont think they pay for wart removal either.

don't worry, gail, sniper knows not to mess with his elders. today it got up into the high 40's and some of that snow melted...........i noticed that it looks like a mouse or something has been chewing on the torso of that little sniper doll........and on another thread somebody been complainin' of tummy troubles.......coincidence? devil

wha happen navy? she started this thread. hey, navy............. you guys have yet to take a bullet for us up here in des moines. it seems like if it's an el nino year, you guys get it, and la nina, like the last two, seems to nail us. i guess i shouldn't complain too much cuz sniper seems to get those freak storms...... you know come t think of it, that seems apropos.

What do you have up there VV, white mice in the snow. I smell a rat and hes older than me. Dont expect the Navy to pull your butt out of the fire either. That must be a commo thing. Do your best oh Voo Doo flunky, but when bugs start to look good to you , dont cry to me....

Don't you guys get it Santa would not let Sniper's Magic Gators get all caught up in a snow storm. Their powers are useless under such conditions! They must have their Magic Scud Busting Powers in place to protect Santa from the south watch post. Our Very Own Chubby Oklahoma Wheat/Beef fed meteorologist Gary England (of Twister Fame) said the snow would miss the Bayou and it did. Rumor has it Gary has a hot line to Santa, ask any central Oklahoma child, and they will tell you that. There I said it, so simple a child could understand it. You guys over complicate magic. Don't try to put too much Voo-Doo on Sniper. Never P--- off your Doctor, your lawyer, or Santa/Sniper. It's a conspiracy, I swear, don't let him bring out our bad sides for Santa to see! Santa might give him all our goodies, and make him well first.Na Na Na Boo Boo ! turn turn turn

aw, rando, i ain't touchin' that one..............

around here, they're little gray ones, sniper. the only white mice i've ever seen were of the gendarme variety in country. and yes i was witness, up close and personal, to what i believed to be navy F4's delivering a lot of 500lb suggestions to the nva troops that were dug in very close to our 'commo thing' location. so thank you navy, you DID pull our butts out of the fire. and randy, that first night (it lasted 3 days), the first and only usaf (i think) airman earned the CMH in vietnam, aboard a spooky gunship.

and then we come back to bugs and mice and sniper. if anyone would know about bugs and mice looking good to eat, it would be the guys that were at remote outposts, performing the most dangerous missions under the most extreme conditions with the least in resources and numbers. that would be our special forces sniper. special forces in the army means Green Berets. however, mr sniper has forgotten that during the summer, we both consume a modicum of bugs anyway......................oh wait!......he uses a wiiiiindshield, neener neener, na na, boo boo.

margie, it sounds like you've been a good little girl and yer really excited about santa........but i woudn't be countin' on santa sniper.......i think all he's got is some chocolate covered grasshoppers. by the way, you know part of that movie was filmed here in iowa. my wife is from a little town about 5 miles from what is known as 'twister hill' if you remember that scene where they dump a 'dorothy' in the middle of the road. it's still kind of freaky going down into that river valley.

Been swearing in new officers...man they are soooooooo young. Plus booking a trip to Bethesda, we will see what the infectious disease doc says. Always happy to be of help VV, you are most welcome.
Humm bugs, mice, or scorpians...
...got to go take off the ruby slippers, and put on my skates for the ice storm.  Bad enough the twister this summer cost 20-30 million dollars worth of damage to the campus alone... now hopefully we can aviod 3 weeks with no power like last year.

Well said Margie, but old VV doesn't hear so good. Bugs in his ears from riding with no wind shield. Its the head turn thing where the bug goes in one ear but get stuck exiting the other.. VV,,,gendarme ???? I fail to see what the French police have to do with playing with dolls in the snow. I do however have to agree with you on Navy pilots. Yes they saved our bacon many times. A big tip of the hat to all of them.. Now I may have eatin a critter or two that you would turn your three hot meals a day, commo job, nose up at but put chocolate on a perfectly good grasshopper,,,,,never. On the otherhand I have never caught one with my tongue mr Kermit...I am at a loss about the movie Twister having never seen it but when you live in hurricane alley you dont really love storm movies. I'll bet old VV has seen,,,The Perfict Storm ,,,at least 4 times but does not care for snow movies unless its to pick up shovling tips. By the way, its 70 degrees and sunny today and going to be in the 80s tomorrow...MMMNavy,,VV may wish to borrow your ruby slippers,,,I think I hear him tapping his heals together saying ,,," Theres no place thats warm " , " Theres no place thats warm. "

yeah, you prolly didn't see em where you were. the vietnamese version of mp's wore helmet liners with QC on the side. there were also civilian/military police that wore similar uniforms with white hats like your dress uniform hat with the brass badge on the front. they were affectionately known as white mice. today, it was 50 degrees......but that was this morning, which in itself is unusual (usually if it's gonna hit 50, that might be for a minute or two around 2pm with a steep drop off at both ends.). around 1pm today, the wind shifted around to out of the northwest, and the temp droped to about 25 in 15 minutes. right now, the temp is 2 degrees and the winds are howling at about 30-40 mph. dunno what we're gonna bottom out at tonight, but i don't think it's going to be pretty in the morning. at least we dodged the 'snow' bullet again. i don't mind the cold,.....it's the snow and ice that makes life miserable navigate.

ruby slippers?, no but my wife has a pair of them. she's a huge oz fan.......got the whole pink floyd interface and everything goin' on. by the way, navy, that would suggest that you are maybe on the kansas side? and do you know where the harley factory is there in the city. i'm fairly familiar with the town and i guess what i'm asking is where is the factory in relationship to like worlds of fun, or downtown, or the stadiums, or which quadrant of the beltway around the city. and on a similar thread, have you ever heard of 'fathead and braindead's'? they have a small museum there of david mann's paintings, and a number of us have been kicking around the idea of heading down there for the day to see it and the factory. i don't suppose i'd luck out and they'd be within a mile or two of each other. it'd prolly be a 3-4 hour ride down and the same back, and if the place is a real dive, i guess i'd rather not invest that kind of saddle time. my daughter lives 200 miles to the north and east of here, and riding that is a piece of cake if i'm not having internals. of course, what's cool to me may totally suck to you.....but if you know the place i'd be interested in yer input.

there's no place that's warm, there's no place that's warm........in sniper's cold cold heart!
nono devil smhair turn shocked smilewinkgrin idea rolleyes cool yeah

VV, who says I have a heart ?? We went to Kansas city a couple of years back but did not go to the Harley factory. They dont give samples. I did find the steam boat museum very interesting though. Stayed in there for a long time. I also found the steaks to be ,Wow!!!!I have to stay away from there to keep from eating myself to death. From what I see on the radar you best plan on that ride much farther down the line , less you have some of those motorcycle spiked ice racing tires. As for the white mice,,I was not much of a city goer..
