Senseless Banter...

Post  RoOsTeR on 12/17/2011, 9:01 am

So, I've had a few requests for a thread where we can go and just say anything. There is no subject, no topic, nothing. This is the place for you to come in and just say hi, good morning, you bought a new car, etc. This is basically the place to come and say whatever you wish but please remember our forum rules do still apply Very Happy
Topics will always wander off here and there and that's no biggie, but let's try to keep our ramblings here instead of our topic specific threads.
Also, don't forget, if you feel like being really chatty, feel free to use our great chat features!!

SO...WHAT'S UP SFG'ers???

ok I'll kick off the first senseless banter Very Happy

- if I won the lottery I'd get one of those rediculously expensive heated driveways installed and never worry about snow removal again.

Am thinking about buying my grandson a Harley. May go look at some today. This should be a hoot. All Gma know about a bike is it's got to be $10K or less :scratch: .

My hair turned GRAY years ago. And I have no grandchildren. Darn. Will those kids ever get married? They are still young though. My son is 23 and daughter 21. I was 35 and Mary 33 when we married (both for the first and only time) 26 years ago.

Lowe's "in store" employees Christmas party.

Post  WardinWake on 12/17/2011, 10:41 am

Howdy Folks:

We are having an 'at work' employees Christmas party today at our Lowe's. Bring the kids, spouses, SO's, DP's, etc.

Various prizes to be given away including tools, two 50 inch Sony flat screens, kids put together wooden cutouts, food, games and other stuff so I have better get cleaned up and go in early.

God Bless, Ward and Mary.

My Christmas break starts on January 1 and ends on January 3rd!

Well, I'm sort of kidding. We are closed for three days - the 24th, 25th and 26th. We are driving to New Jersey to visit my in-laws. They have a wonderful Christmas Eve party every year with family friends dating back to when my f-i-l was 12 years old! (One of them is the clergy member who performed our wedding ceremony.)

It's a wonderful group of people, and I love the years we get to go there for Christmas. The driving part, though not overly onerous, does somewhat make it feel like our Christmas break begins on 1/1, though!

And, NR, thank you for this thread!

SG Now don't be offended by this ...
Being a real Englishman speaking our Queens English I'm tickled pink ...curled up smiling with tears running down my cheeks ..

Is that a baby that's going to be grand or a baby grand piano or are you to become a Grandmother again in two months time ?

This site is magic ... all the nations of the world trying to communicate in an understandable way that gives brilliant humour and fun all the time .




Best wishes for a safe new arrival

The difference between speaking (or writing) English vs. American can be charming, and ever so respectfully laughable!

Love the cultures here! It's definitely a human baby...a baby boy! rahrah We had to find out, because big brother really wanted another sister! So mom and dad decided they'd better find out early. A new baby is a big change in the household, so wanted to keep the change as normal as possible. Big brother is now "on board" with a brother, so all is well. I'm sooo excited. I LOVE babies, and am loving being a grandma BIG hug . Another helper in my garden, now I'll have three

southern gardener, I am afraid I have to one-up you.

We are expecting twin grandbabies with a due date of mid May. No twins on either side of the family, so this has been quite the surprise.

DH and I already have three grandchildren, ages 22 yo, 17 yo, and an 18 month old.

We interrupt your regularly scheduled banter to bring you breaking news.....

WEATHERMEN REALLY STINK AT THEIR JOBS!!

.....now, back to your regularly scheduled programming.


(I often look at the same models, and listen to the same NWS forecasters they do, and boy are they failing to use their brains. I swear they can't read a map.)
