Mornin’, GN!

If we had an umbrella over our mailbox, it’d probably have cabbage roses on it. 👿

Found a good deal on Halloween candy yesterday:

Hi Fatwa…good morning gerbil horde!

I have no idea why this thought popped into my head first thing this morning, but thought I’d share cuz it’s just too horrific to keep to myself. Here goes:

An aging crackpot, a stray dog, and a brand new jar of peanut butter. Film at eleven.

No need to thank me.

Mrs Sven got her new car Sunday--it’s a Jeep Renegade Trailhawk model. She’s happy with it and so I’m happy.

It’s amazing though that the price of a new vehicle is the same as what a house costs in many places in the United States. Would be interesting to look back over time and compare median home cost to median car cost.

And that’s a sad looking coon out in the rain--glad he has an umbrella.

Thankfully, the mob of coons around our place has diminished. A couple of weeks ago there was this awful squealing and screaming from the park next to the backyard as something grabbed up and chowed down on one of them. No idea what it was, but since then they havent been coming around much which is just fine with me. And when they do come by, they dont stay long.

Greetings, Sven.
I’m so old that I remember when they added a fifth digit to the price of a car on The Price Is Right. We routinely see cars that cost more than our house. Or see those half-a-million-dollar houses HGTV that are nothing more than wooden framed starter
houses(in California).

Hai, Sven and RabBeet!

Film at eleven.

Noooooooooooooooo!!1!

No need to thank me.

You’ve got that right, bub. 😉

Congrats to Mrs. Sven re her new vehicle!

It’s crazy what cars cost these days. While I’m not currently in a position to purchase a newer vehicle, I recently looked at prices for used Subaru Outbacks (my car-of-choice). Even taking into account that they hold their value pretty well, it’s freaking ridiculous what they go for.

Good morning, Gerbil Nation!
Good morning, RabBiT, Sven, and Fatwa!

Fatwa -- I wonder what the difference is between a Nickers bar and a Sickers bar? I’ve never weighed chocolate nickers before, so I’m not sure what size 52g is.

I recently looked at prices for used Subaru Outbacks (my car-of-choice)

First Volvo, now Subaru? Got a thing for gay-friendly cars, I see. I hear the Outback Lumberjack edition is quite popular.

Another Car We’re Not Allowed to Buy

Would you be interested in a brand-new, fully warranted, five-door crossover SUV built by a major, name-brand automaker that gave you 50-plus MPG with a gas (not diesel or hybrid) engine, that has a top speed around 125 mph, is capable of getting to 60 in 12 seconds (about the same as a Prius hybrid) that stickered for less than $5,000?
Too bad we can’t buy one.

Not because such a vehicle isn’t available.

It’s just not available here.

As they say, read the whole thing.

Also keyboard player-friendly…NTTAWWT.

Excellent link, sir…and another argument in favor of #BTFSTTG*.

[Insert Liberace and/or Elton John references here]

Many years ago, I was playing Trivial Pursuit with my extended family. I got the question “What is the name of Liberace’s brother?” When I immediately answered “George”, the table erupted with “How do you know that?” My brother and I looked at each other and said, in unison:
