    Small Talk: The Prayer Closet

    This is the only one I found of him where it looks like he might be a little thick in his hind-quarter. (I always liked him, btw) Ican't believe I'm looking for pics of James Garners butt.. I have no life.😂 I also thought it was interesting that his real name was James S. Bumgarner. Also, this: "In his 2011 memoir, The Garner Files, he wrote: Army chow was bearable as long as I could keep the onions and garlic out of it. I cannot stand onions and I'm very sensitive to garlic. I can taste tiny amounts of it, like when they've cooked another dish with garlic before and don't wash the pan. If I get even a hint of it, I might throw up in my plate. This violent aversion may have saved my life: like our South Korean allies, the Chinese and North Korean troops lived on a diet of fish heads, rice, and garlic. One night while on guard on the line, I caught a faint whiff of it coming from the direction of the enemy positions. I couldn't see anything, but I knew there was someone out there and they were coming closer. Once I sniffed them I could hear them, too. It turned out to be a patrol heading straight for our position. They were just the other side of a rise when I passed the word down the line. We were ready for them and stopped them in their tracks." 😲

    19 Parodies and Counting: The Goofy Thread

    I don't know where else to put this, so I guess this will work? I don't even know how to describe this, other than to say I could see Michelle Duggar talking like the woman he's lip-syncing to! 😂

    Meghan McCain: "Both Sides" Wannabe Tough Chick

    I was just coming to post this article. The comments afterward🤣 (from the article) "Does this ensemble perhaps offend your sensibilities as well? Who is Meghan’s stylist and why is this person allowed to troll her so hard? To this patriotic American—if you’re reading this blog, please get in touch. I have some questions for you." https://jezebel.com/this-is-offensive-to-me-1835297527

    I've said it before, and I'll say it again. I'm way fatter than Meghan, and my beef is that she LIES about the size she wears. I don't judge size, but man oh man, do I hate liars. (I mean, we are not blind...you know? Just own it, and DRESS for it.) jmho

    S04.E03: Mistrials Of Marriage

    Or..ya know..you act like grownups and figure out how to make it work for everydamnbody in the family. I've been married for 50 years to a Puerto Rican, and I'm as wonder-bread white as they come. We just had a graduation party for my granddaughter this last weekend. We fully expected the white family would be right on time, and would want to leave a few hours after the party started (It's a given.) So, we fired up the grill right at the start, and had her open her gifts as people came in. After people ate, we had some nice cupcakes. Hours later,as the second wave of family (Puerto Rican, Columbian-American,and Mexican-American in-laws started trickling in, we started up the grill again, and set out more potato salad,rice and beans etc.and again had her open gifts as they came in (all you do is when someone says "where's the gift table?" You call the giftee over and say "oh look!! They brought you something! How nice! Open it!" (my kids and grands know not to say no to me...lol) Then more cupcakes. This way, everyone can come and leave when they want. And btw, we would be in big trouble if we didn't have rice and beans for my white family, or german potato salad for my Latino family, they are a match made in heaven when you eat them together. (the foods, not the people) 😂 It might sound like we're separating the two sides for the family, but we're not..the invite said 1pm to 10pm...We just knew when to expect who (whom?) Plenty of overlap and lots of socializing is had when nobody has to have something "their way." ::::::steps off soapbox::::: PS. I'm re-reading this and it took many, MANY years and lots of compromising on both of our families' parts to get to this..I don't see that happening with Pao or Russ' family unfortunately. Pao seems to want everything her own way, and his family seems too old to change.
