I know someone in the military who had put a beer in the freezer to chill down. When he opened it of course it fell out and landed on a toe. He thought it was broken so went in to have it checked out. Said it was a can of peas or else it would have gone in his file as an alcohol related incident.

Speaking of beer, my mom had a party once and when I was passing through to get outside, I dropped a toy, and when I bent to pick it up, my hair caught fire from a candle. A guest poured a beer on my head to douse the flame. I ended up with just a small amount of my ends singed. Thank heavens for beer. It is good for something!

It was good for something yesterday. I had quite a few at a family wedding. Things didn't work out too well. The groom didn't run away so now he's stuck.

Weddings are held in churchs because of the aisle, altar and hymm and the bride always thinks that 'I'll alter him!'.

More accurately, Tank, it is the Marine Corps that desire each of the Iowa classes 9 - 16/50 rifles retention in the inventory, most of all. (16 inch/50 calibers = Length is 50 times the 16 inch Diameter)

Admiral.
You noticed the bird houses are indeed gone.
Dolley took them to school so the kids could make them for Mother's Day.
I honestly felt that was an improvement to my war room.
If you look closely, the bird houses have been replaced by home made spaghetti sauce made by 100% Italians.
After work, I go home teach a girl at her house who is waiting for a kidney, and we always talk about food.
Well they know I really like Taco Bell and pizza, so they gave me two big bottles of homemade sauce as a gift!
Grandma who is old, grows the tomatoes and garlic in a big field, and the family goes out there picks the stuff and Slug eats the end result.
Slug will rep the first person who can tell me where my new experimental bar-b-que sauce I got as a gift, is located in the most recent photo.
Must post here.
Good luck.

I'll take a wild shot in the dark, Slug...is it the reddish brown item on the paper towels? Looks sort of like the top of a bottle laid upon its side.

Probably not it, but worth a stab...
