Oh there is a lady in this park who drives a vet. She is way over 50 and not attractive. It always shocks me.

Both Sis in Laws just purchased Rubicons with all the toys. They love it.

My favorite car was a baby blue boxy Mercedes sedan, from back before they streamlined the silhouette, that i got as a hand me down from my father-in-law. The trunk was like a built in U-haul; you could load it down with everything and the kitchen sink, and it would still accelerate like nobody's businees when you hit the gas -- even going up a grade. It sat so high off the ground the you could drive across a furrowed field -- and we did! -- without bottoming out. I really don't know much about makes and models, but I did love that car.

Just saw a coyote at the park. Teddy and I interrupted his path because he retreated and then gave off a series of barks followed by the trademark howl. Finally I got tired of its bitching and moved away and he continued on his path.

Beasts of England

Did your tux match the Vette, henry? ;)

anonamom

I need a new car---who loves theirs, and why?

I love driving the kids' old turbo GTI, but it was in a minor accident years ago, the plastic parts are breaking, that damn oil light comes on after I drive more than five miles, and my better half has decreed "not one more cent."

The "logical" replacement is the Mazda SUV (in light of living in SUV land here--so I can see too)--but it does NOTHING for me.

Not that I need my car to "do" anything for me--but I am open to one that does.

Beasts, complemented. Not matched. At that point the Vette was painted Rolls Silver. I had a black tux. And I didn’t exceed 120 on the access road, would have impacted my date’s hair. ;)

Yeah Mazdas selling point are its safety features but not much else:

Anonamom, if I ever again live where there is lots of traffic, I always thought a Sherman Tank was the best ride. That or something like Bigfoot and other monster trucks. But the tank wins, more practical.

If hubby drives a Porsche Macan, why do you have to "settle" for a Mazda SUV?

You're both high dollar -ologists.

Important when the weather moves in tomorrow at the Masters. Is it in the middle of the tee times or during the leaders round? If it comes mid round of the leaders it will wreak havoc. i go for DJ as a result.

Trump:

The New York Times Sanctuary Cities/Immigration story today was knowingly wrong on almost every fact. They never call to check for truth. Their sources often don’t even exist, a fraud. They will lie & cheat anyway possible to make me look bad. In 6 years they will be gone........

....When I won the Election in 2016, the @nytimes had to beg their fleeing subscribers for forgiveness in that they covered the Election (and me) so badly. They didn’t have a clue, it was pathetic. They even apologized to me. But now they are even worse, really corrupt reporting!

FBI Finds Nixon Aides Sabotaged Democrats
By Carl Bernstein and
Bob Woodward
October 10, 1972
Perhaps the most significant finding of the whole Watergate investigation, the investigators say, was that numerous specific acts of political sabotage and spying were all traced to this “offensive security,” which was conceived and directed in the White House and by President Nixon’s re-election committee.

Fifty-two local Democrats, including county commissioner, leave the party in three days
“It’s getting to where the Democratic Party is not like it used to be,” Bullard said Thursday to explain his switch. “It’s full of Muslims and full of people who believe in aborting babies up to the ninth month of pregnancy and even my pastor has been encouraging me to change my affiliation because of some of the Democratic Party beliefs. It was something I had planned on doing for a while. I hadn’t gone ahead and done it but, when the Jody Greene issue came up, I figured the time to do it is now.”

Quick draw competition...

Trump:

Democrats must change the Immigration Laws FAST. If not, Sanctuary Cities must immediately ACT to take care of the Illegal Immigrants - and this includes Gang Members, Drug Dealers, Human Traffickers, and Criminals of all shapes, sizes and kinds. CHANGE THE LAWS NOW!

henry

Trump:

I never offered Pardons to Homeland Security Officials, never ordered anyone to close our Southern Border (although I have the absolute right to do so, and may if Mexico does not apprehend the illegals coming to our Border), and am not “frustrated.” It is all Fake & Corrupt News!

....So interesting to see the Mayor of Oakland and other Sanctuary Cities NOT WANT our currently “detained immigrants” after release due to the ridiculous court ordered 20 day rule. If they don’t want to serve our Nation by taking care of them, why should other cities & towns?

I really like my 19 Ford Edge, amom. My brother drives the Volvo V90. Lovely top end SUV. Why not splurge?

Jane

Last time I went looking for a car, my broker went with me. I had recently read an article that said; ‘the right car will call your name”. First we went o Audi, and were headed somewhere when he pulled into a Mercedes dealer. I complied and test drove a car that screamed my name. They wouldn’t give me the right price, so we left.

3 months later my broker found the car in CT. Right color, right accessories and 9k miles on it. It had been a showroom car. I’m not a big show-off so I was a little embarrassed to have a Mercedes, I loved it then, and still love it, and it’s only got 40k miles on it!

Find the car that calls your nam!

Jane

Name. Sheesh

henry

Apparently my name is “rustbucket”

GUS

Fauxcahontas is dumb as a bag of USED DILDO'S. Omar is STILL MARRIED to her own BROTHER. Omar is on record and on TAPE as being completely ANTI-AMERICAN, and PRO-MUZZZZZZLIM, without regard to the MUZZZZZZLIM POSSE and where they derive from.
If we are to accept this RACIST NONSENSE as in any sense legitimate, it would be useful and helpful, for the RACE BAITING LIBTARDS to defend their words.
Won't happen.

GUS

Jane my lovely, any car that DID NOT call your name is a pile of junk. You deserve the best. And so does the car!!!
I hope your MERCEDES BENZ is BLACK.

The MFM is a rancid decaying pile of LOSER. The millenial butt licking accolytes have zero INTROSPECTION, zero, CRITICAL THINKING SKILLS, even less than ZERO, SKEPTICISM and HONEST OBJECTIVITY.
It all simply ILLUSTRATES, that the LEFTIST FULL COMMIE MFM and CURRENT CROP of PATHETICALLY BIASED FOOOOOOLS, have no interest in truth nor honesty.

God bless you my dear friend. I apologize for ruining our meet up a few weeks ago.
When we do MEET UP, i want to drive that SWEET BENZ!!!!

Captain Hate

My ex kollidge roomie in Scottsdale has a silver Benz two seater. We took it to the dealer for something minor one day and there was some kraut speak on the side that made me think it was turbocharged. I asked Jeff and of course he didn't know a fucking thing. So I asked the dealer guy and he said "no, supercharged". Once I surreptitiously picked my jaw off the ground I said "like belt driven?" and he said "oh yeah". So I popped the hood and it had one of those flat superchargers like I've seen for Dodge Challengers designed only for "supervised acceleration trials". I said "can I drive this back?"

What.A.Beast.

GUS

Capn, that's how they MAKE the SILVER BENZ'S.
Only the best for you sir.

Captain Hate

GUS, I'm glad you're on the mend.

My wife and I are going to Denali this summer. My youngest daughter and her squeeze are working at the closest lodge to the mountain, a six hour shuttle trip from the entrance to the park. So she stopped fighting with her mother long enough to invite us up.

Heading to bed.

Good night, all!

Momto2

Thanks all for the kind words and good wishes. I have survived and, after a 5-hour nap, am feeling pretty well. I don't remember a thing! And (best part) no YouTube videos of me talking out of my head. I'm on 5 prescription meds so trying to take "with food" on the keto plan is my current challenge.

D - If you drive near Hendersonville on your trip to Ashville, be sure to stop at the Mountain Deli for the best sandwiches! There is also a nice antique shop across the street (3 floors) with lovely, authentic thing$ for $ale. We just browsed. The flowers at the Biltmore should be at or near their peak. We really enjoyed the Battery Park Book Exchange and Champagne Bar in Ashville. A very large selection of quality books, nice wine list, and dogs allowed. (They have a permanent water bowl and sell cute doggie items.)

rse - I look forward to lunch and will let you know when I can actually eat again!

JMH I mentioned that experience as a backdoor encouragement for Buckeye. I hesitate as I might sound like some old guy who can only talk about my ailments.

Sidwhite & JMH - I will now add my 2 cents to the ailments discussion.

Can't remember if I explained my situation. My wreck cracked several of my molars but below the gum line so there were no symptoms. After about a year, I had the first episode. They spread similar to a cracked windshield. Once they break the surface, bacteria invades and infection and pain ensue. I have been having them removed one by one as they became symptomatic. Today I had the last (fingers crossed) one removed and 2 implants begun. It will be 4-6 months until actually teeth will be placed.


I have enjoyed reading everyone's posts today and hope I can stay awake to see some of the Masters' tomorrow. It should be exciting!

anonamom

Thanks all!
Guess I'll need to go look at some cars, to see what speaks to me.

Captain Hate

Reading "Serena" by Ron Rash has the same impact on me as reading his short stories. In all of them they have a Raymond Carver like tension of something not being in equilibrium that has to be resolved or things won't end well. I can believe that this was a sucky movie; so was Short Cuts if you were looking for the essence of Carver totally leached out by that hack poet Tess Gallagher. I'll probably finish this much more quickly than the group and then move on to something else before we start I, Claudius. But I will eventually read everything he writes; just like Carver except for his terrible poetry.

Narciso79

Well Jennifer Lawrence has two setting peppy and sullen, and her performance was somewhere in the middle:

The reviews on Rotten Tomatoes were hilariously brutal. I'd have probably joined in that food fight except for my opinion of most of those dorks.

Narciso79

I guess I never got into Carver's work so I dont have much to compare it to.

I claudius on first glance seems like the main character is not very sharp, but seeing as he managed the campaign in Britain among other exercises the template is misleading

I guess I never got into Carver's work so I dont have much to compare it to.

Maybe I'm an outlying point (LOL) but the first thing I read of his, on a small press edition that inexplicably came into the possession of the Cleveland library (which is either now behind a locked access place or someone stole it which is what I should've done in retrospect and paid the fucking fine), I spent my waking hours consuming from cover to cover. His later work got increasingly sappy thanks to the malign influence of that whore poet ruining him WITH THE BEST INTENTIONS; but it still contained the essence of the tortured soul who was in there somewhere. Either you get it or you don't.
