What really scares me personally is packs of wild dogs taking over all major USA cities, and snowblindness in cats. :laugh2:

Huh! I thought it was a contest to see who could build the tallest stack of slot boxes. Reminiscent of the painting of the dogs playing poker. 

 

I'm not concerned about dogs taking over. As AI evolves, I'm more afraid of machines. I know I could never outrun Johnny 5.

A little bit.

 

I'm just happy to have some company, during the week, in the summer.

 

Even if they have one foot on the banana peel.

I wouldn’t worry to much about the age as they all appear to be in tip top physical condition.

Speaking of tip top physical condition, are you and your South Bend sidekick, Charles Atlas, coming to the Fun Race on the 21st?

LOL, yes, it’s on the calendar.

I probably should be the last one to point a finger, should’ve had 50 pounds off by now since I got stented.

KVP,

Yes, that's how I got that pic.

I had walked over to the track to see what all the commotion was about.

Jim and Dave were arguing about hair care products.
