  1. When wife worked at a transplant center, during Bike Week at Daytona Beach, staff called them donorcycles as available organs for transplant surged.
  2. Thieves are becoming fickle and lazy. If it is not an e-bike, not worth the effort to deal with a lock and chain.

    My first job as a bag boy at a grocery store, there were four of us and my head would turn ant time the manager would call two of them. One was a nickname formal name combination - Larry Lawrence - and I answer to both. While my last name is a single syllable word, and will respond to my last name, the coworkers was a two syllable name, but started with mine and the accent was on the first syllable.
  4. Back to driving after a month's restriction! The great escape is on. Still have some restriction like lifting above head, 10 lb weight limit, and heavy exercise. Did my mile walk today and will probably extend the distance over the weekend.
  5. They probably go to the same church and play canasta together on Friday night. Gossip central.
  6. He hasn't been contacting us? I'll be quiet, but I guess it is just you he hasn't contacted.
  7. Package it and sell it in pet supply stored. For marketing, use some guilt line for not making your dog happy.
  8. Nobody ever said "Wilber, slow down. 300 MPH is too fast"
  9. Ya'll gonna luze yure fer'in accent. It aint gonna take no specall train'n to speek normul. Gonna lern how to spel too. Fur dinne gona get me sun nice catfish n grits!
  10. Similar. My college roommate failed first attempt and while he had a high draft number, quickly joined the Air Force before the Army drafted him for Vietnam. With me, While I graduated from HS in 1969, I was #19 on the lottery and couldn't fail as I would lose my student deferment. Four years later and two months before I graduated, they abolished the draft with the wind down of Vietnam. My later military service was voluntary.
  11. That almost happened to me when I lived in Jacksonville, NC. I had my 2 y/o son in the car with me and went to throw some garbage in a county collection bin. Upon returning and back on the primary 2 lane road, in my peripheral vision see a tree falling. It wasn't a sports car (Chevy Nova I think) but I whipped it into a side slide, tires screeching, as stopping as the tree crashed on the pavement about 3 ft away. Stalled out with that maneuver and I look up and see electric wired danglig directly above me as the tree brushed against the them. Desperately trying to restart the car but the carb was flooded. Wires never fell, but at about that time, workers at the business (sorghum molasses still) had witnessed it congratulating me on my driving skill...and helped me push the car away from danger.
  12. There is another side to it that, unfortunately, I was unaware of until my son told me when he began working at Yale. The key is being accepted. While undegraduate are expected to pull the load, with the endowment and research grants at Yale, Harvard and Ivey league, Masters/PhD is virtually 100% paid for in each of the Colleges, irrespective if it is a PhD in English or nuclear physics. In retrospect, with my daughter while the Lottery Scholarship paid for most of undergraduate, the research grant funded her TA position during her PhD at SUNY Stoneybrook. I would throw her a few hundred as needed, but both son and daughter completed degrees with no debt. My son did create some debt with his MBA. Yale has a continuing education employee benefit to study anywhere BUT Yale. He got his MBA at the local Albertus Magnus (private Catholic University) but the stipend wasn't enough to cover 100%. My brother, who is a professor at an Osteopathic Medical School, primarily teaching organic chemistry and associate dean for admissions, relayed an interesting dialog. Potential students typically have two or three acceptance letters deciding between. Invariably, during the admissions interview the applicant will ask the question "How much are you going to pay me to attend?" As I look back it was similar with my daughter. She was accepted at University of Calif Davis, but with the tight State budget they didn't have the funds to offer her. Univ of South Florida sent her a rejection letter so she accepted at Stoneybrook. A couple days later, the professor at So Florida called, looking forward to working with her, blah, blah, blah. Apparently the Admissions office sent the letter out in error, but since she already accepted at Stoneybrook, didn't back out.
  13. That is the one thing you DON'T do under any circumstance. Parents/chaperones will label you as a perv and will give you hell waiting for security to respond to their reporting you.
