What a way to end a trip

I had a poetic ending to this trip from hell. Afrter seven hours of driving my car refused to start at a gas station thirty miles from home. The mishap was lucky as I was less then three miles from a garage. I passed an accident and some of the debris lodged in my engine and severed the alarm. Worse yet my mechanic sold the parts even before I left.

Some valuable lessons from the mishap. Always have a cell phone mine was low and it reduced the headache. Always have a wintercoat in the car it was a lifesaver. Never walk on country roads without a flashlight. I left mine in the car and almost got run over.

at the risk of sounding bossy, just stay home from now on. but if you must go, carry an extra cube of salted butter and an extra bar of smelly soap - that way you won't have quite so much to complain about! you can always use them to bribe the girls with the roadkill to give you a ride to the nearest coffee shop where you can lament to the old-timers about your travels.

I am not fussy but I need a vacation from my vacation. I also salt my own butter and would never use lavender soap.

I told you to come to Fla. and gave you all sorts of ideas of what to do! I wouldn't buy you stinky soap and I'll let you use all the Brillo you need! There is an ABC liquer store 4 miles away, just don't drink on the beach. I can even find some unsalted butter for you. See, there are reasonable people in the world, I'm sure nanc would let you kill chickens to work out your frustrations! Next time take your Mr. Beamish Action Figure, it would probably scare Shera and Brian into better behavior! Your fingers would be safe and Brian would be a pretzel. Serve with mustard.

well, you'd stink purty if you did!

tmw - i don't believe beak imbibes in the spirits. he's probably a mountain dew kind of guy! or i'm guessing strong camp coffee.

nanc said...

beak - very pressing news:

http://thecrankfiles.blogspot.com/

something is rotten in beamishland.

the merry widow said...

nanc- Beakerkin did mention cheap alcohol with a hallucigenic, also bar fighting. Unless he goes to bars just to fight, I have one of those 3 blocks away! South side of Patrick AFB, strange places to play! Or not.
I hope our candidate for Prez. doesn't have the flu or something!
Oh, Beak, we also have Starbucks about 10 m. away and East Coast Coffee and Tea Co. about 5 m. away! In case you prefer coffee! I still think he should take his MBAF with him, perfect security!

beakerkin said...

Nanc is right . I only drink alcohol if someone is getting on my nerves. Most of the time I enjoy Mountain Dew on Ice . I like Cherry Lime Rickeys but I can not find the ingredients.

the merry widow said...

Would an ice cold Mountain Dew Red work? My grillin' neighbor has some!

The Code Red Works wonders but pitch Black was the best.

I drink as often as I possibly can and buy only salted butter.

Of course, this is despite the fact that my inlaws barely drink at all and only use FAT FREE crap. Yes, that means I bring my own full-fat mayo, half and half, and full-fat salted butter when I come for an extended visit.

They think I'm nuts, of course, but they love me just the same. Oh, did I remember to mention that they load up on scotch and wine for my visits? Gotta love my inlaws.

nanc said...

i would say, "never drink if something or someone is getting on your nerves!" but drink the rest of the time to ensure that doesn't happen.

i'm invitin' madze over so he'll bring all the full-fat stuff! are you sure they only THINK you're nuts?

the merry widow said...

Looks like your inlaws have come to appreciate you highly! That or your daughter has them securely wrapped around her little finger! Granddaughters can get away with murder. Especially if they are cute, adorable and smile.

Well at least you made it home alive and now have an adventure that you will always remember. Not that you really wanted one.

Beak,
Maybe you've now reached the end of the bad cycle. One can hope so!

beakerkin said...

In reality the car trouble was good luck. Had it happened on I 87 I would still be there. The roads are deserted and cars do not stop to help you.

nanc said...

BEAK - serious troll alert - fpm - first article - calls itself mycos - are you hungry - he's extremely anti-semitic! he's tagging and nagging batya - singling her out - i hate that.

MissingLink said...

So hod did it finally end up?
Are you still walking Beak?

beakerkin said...

Nanc I saw the posts of Mycos and it is Meathead. Meathead is just one of about half a dozen or so names Socrates posts under.

Roberta banned me and I responded by refusing to make further donations until Socrates is thrown off FPM. Look at the writting styles and Socrates mysteriously appears when Meathead is outed. Shame on Jinny and the rest of FPM for not picking that up.

themerrywidow said...

What was that song again? If it weren't for bad luck, I'd have no luck at all...
Glad you made it out alive, Beak! I agree with AoW, it's time for some good stuff to happen!

nanc said...

but the soybean is on another article today.

how on earth did you get banned?

someone told me via e-mail today that squeaky clean is socrates.

LASunsett said...

Beak,

Still got your health don't you?

;)

beakerkin said...

Nanc

Soybean is Socrates and Roberta banned me for pointing it out. Soc mysteriously reappears after Meathead is outed as Socrates. Shame on Jinny who clearly knew all along.

nanc said...

if indeed she did, then yes, shame on her. i've heard some horror stories about this socrates and would not want to be in his graces. i don't like the way the soybean cozies up to the women at fpm. it's disgusting.

soooo, are you telling me there are people posting at the same time as different people? i should think that would be confusing to say the least. not to mention deceptive.

nanc said...

well, she's giving him hell now! first article.
