Back in the day, I wouldn't have even been to bed yet!

OM45GE - Posted - 05/23/2015:  03:25:33


My admin says she knows it's time to go home around 3:00 am because she knows I'll be getting up soon. 

DeanT - Posted - 05/23/2015:  06:04:25


why is it so hard to sleep at night, and so easy to snooze during the day?

dat - Posted - 05/23/2015:  06:46:48


If I snooze during the day, I would be up all night,  I always figured it was easier to go through the day without a nap and go to bed sleepy and get some rest than to take a nap and not be tired at night

DeanT - Posted - 05/23/2015:  07:59:51


I never take day naps, but I sure have the urge... why does it always seem to hit while driving?

dat - Posted - 05/23/2015:  08:08:57


well, when you are driving, is your wife in the passenger seat talking?   clown

DeanT - Posted - 05/23/2015:  09:33:12


well, um... she does most of the driving!tongue

dat - Posted - 05/23/2015:  10:01:56


by the way, I meant no disrespect to your bride,     but sometimes no matter who it might be talking over a long time can do that  



now my maw in law, whew, she would keep everybody in the car awake, and on edge

DeanT - Posted - 05/23/2015:  19:47:02


We usually have the radio on anyways... usually public talk radio... I need to put that on at night when I go to bed!

OM45GE - Posted - 05/25/2015:  15:51:19


I listen to the BBC at night. It helps me sleep. 

DeanT - Posted - 05/25/2015:  16:23:29


I used to listen to Art Bell at night, I don't know if he's even alive anymore. 

OM45GE - Posted - 05/26/2015:  03:36:37


I would catch him sometimes when I was driving tractor trailers over the road. Doctor Demento too. 

DeanT - Posted - 05/26/2015:  05:35:14


Wow there's a blast from the past!  

dat - Posted - 05/26/2015:  06:11:40


probably before my time,  approve

chuckv97 - Posted - 05/26/2015:  08:24:58


Art Bell retired a few years ago, then came back for a short while with another show. George Norrey took over his old show, but I quit listening to it after a couple of years.

DeanT - Posted - 05/26/2015:  11:06:07


George Norrey comes on Ancient Aliens from time to time. I love that show

OM45GE - Posted - 05/26/2015:  16:45:37


I've never caught that one. I'll have to give it a try. 

DeanT - Posted - 05/26/2015:  17:19:11


It's a TV show on the History Channel, archive episodes on the net, or comes on every Friday evening. My favorite show right now.

chuckv97 - Posted - 05/26/2015:  17:27:11


What's it about?

OM45GE - Posted - 05/26/2015:  18:46:01


It looks as though it's about evidence that aliens have visited earth. 

DeanT - Posted - 05/26/2015:  22:19:19


yep!



history.com/shows/ancient-aliens

OM45GE - Posted - 05/27/2015:  03:44:51


I don't need the show. My ex-wife was proof positive that aliens mated with humans. 

DeanT - Posted - 05/27/2015:  05:24:18


My x was from the same planet as yours

Banjo players are attracted to odd women

dat - Posted - 05/27/2015:  08:50:32


and it takes a special lady to put up with a banjo player

DeanT - Posted - 05/27/2015:  10:18:31


My lovely bride's sewing machines compete with my banjo... she's a quilter

dat - Posted - 05/27/2015:  10:43:26


Blessed are the quilters, for they shall be piece makers

OM45GE - Posted - 05/27/2015:  16:18:26


You've got me in stitches Daniel. 

DeanT - Posted - 05/27/2015:  17:38:51


Maybe the quilting topic need it's own thread

OM45GE - Posted - 05/27/2015:  17:55:57


We're really spooling up the jokes now. 

DeanT - Posted - 05/27/2015:  22:12:37


They are king sized

OM45GE - Posted - 05/28/2015:  06:21:19


Covering all the possibilities. 

dmiller - Posted - 05/28/2015:  08:21:26


Batting 1000 on the quilt comments.

OM45GE - Posted - 05/28/2015:  08:27:26


You're not just needling us are you?

chuckv97 - Posted - 05/28/2015:  10:15:16


lol,,,groan

dat - Posted - 05/28/2015:  13:06:35


I didn't have any more sewing stuff to say, so I kept my mouth shut

chuckv97 - Posted - 05/28/2015:  15:02:55


Well, it is sowing time on the prairies

DeanT - Posted - 05/28/2015:  17:10:18


maybe we should put this to bed

Mr. Quimby - Posted - 05/29/2015:  06:08:40


Oh!!!!!  Speaking of sewing, check out what I found the other day.



Someone put it out on the curb for trash pick up.  I saw the cabinet, which in pretty bad shape, when I took my trash out.  But then the next morning as I was about to head to work I noticed someone had opened it and I could tell it was an old machine.  I grabbed it super quick and dragged it into my house.  Didn't take a real good look at it because I was running late for work, but I have enough sewing friends that I know old machines are in super high demand and can often be fixed up (and even if they can't, some people like them just for decor).



When I got home I opened it up to look at it and wow.  There's not a speck of dust on it.  It's in incredible shape.  It's missing the power cord, the cord to the foot pedal (and the foot pedal), and the needle plate but a couple of my online friends looked at it and were super excited by it.

I have no idea what I'm going to do with it (I'm not much of a sewer myself) but I knew a beauty like that shouldn't end up incinerated at the waste to energy facility.

My mom used to have an old Pfaff treadle sewing machine, probably from the 1920's . Don't know if one of my sisters got it now or not - I'll have to ask. Maybe worth some $$.

OM45GE - Posted - 05/29/2015:  08:04:47


One person's trash is another's treasure. Nice find.

dat - Posted - 05/29/2015:  08:19:52


NICE,   you need to start digging through dumpsters more often  approve

DeanT - Posted - 05/29/2015:  09:07:23


My wife would go crazy over that, she has an old sewing machine collection

Mr. Quimby - Posted - 05/29/2015:  09:36:05


I know.  I've never gone dumpster diving before.  Suddenly I'm wondering how many other treasures are out there that I'm missing.

dat - Posted - 05/29/2015:  09:39:58


my grandmother had two heavy duty upolstry singers that were stolen out of her house about a month after she died, they went through and cleaned out a lot and tore up what they left

OM45GE - Posted - 05/29/2015:  09:44:37


That's just plain wrong.

Mr. Quimby - Posted - 05/29/2015:  13:55:03


A former coworker of mine was planning to move to Kentucky after she retired.  She had inherited some property out there.  Since the housing market was pretty crummy here in the DC area at that time, she and her roommate figured they would take their time moving out there.  So they made a few trips with a truck load of boxes every couple of months.  They'd leave them in the house out there and then come back here and pack up some more stuff and make another trip.



Then they discovered that someone was going through their stuff in the house in Kentucky.  Since no one was living in the house, apparently the burglars would break in and take their own sweet time going through the boxes there to see what was worth taking and what they didn't want.



She and her roommate have since decided they don't want to move out there.  I guess most of what they'd taken out there were "non-essentials" so they're just leaving it for the scavengers and eventually will likely just sell the house (with the boxes of stuff) to someone.  They were really turned off by the thought someone was rummaging through the house while they weren't there.

dat - Posted - 05/29/2015:  14:25:21


an empty house is an invitation now a days

DeanT - Posted - 05/29/2015:  15:45:19


we got us a wifi surveillance camera. It's pretty cool. We can watch the house from anywhere anytime.

OM45GE - Posted - 05/29/2015:  18:10:08


I saw someone on TV saying there an app you can use to set up your old phone as a security camera  it records what is going on in the house and you can monitor it from anywhere you have an Internet connection.
