Oh good! Please take some of the stuffing out of mine to make me skinny, and stick some monopoly money in my pocket so I can retire.

You never offended me, Mel. All those times you called me names and chit, well I just took it like a man. What else could I do.

I knew all along you were a Yooper and were over-extending...

I mean over-projecting.

No, I mean, what's that word, Mel?

Hey, I was just reading the thread. I was posting from the beginning post on this thread. How was I to know it had changed.

I do have a handheld electric drill with a carbide bit, though.

And, I also have a set of Wear Ever stainless steel, lifetime guaranteed cook wear.

So, precise that.

I called my little girl up today because I saw the cutest little MGM Miget two seater red convertible on craigslist.

It was only $3,000 and she has been saving up for a car.

I told her I could get it and my husband could get it up to her. Do you know what she said?

"I kind of have my heart set on an Escalade!" A Ford Escalade!

So of course I said, "nothing says FU to the earth like a Ford Escalade"

She hung up on me. My fifteen yo DD! Our first fight, over a car.

What 15 yo girl wants an Escalade?

A smart girl!! Even though I can't believe she turned down a cute convertible. What WAS the girl thinking? Hard to believe that child is already 15. WOW!

Ford doesn't make the Escalade....Cadillac does.


rotflmao

You see a lot of them with virtually blacked out tinted windows and spinner wheel covers.

rotflmao

Sort of a rich thug mobile.

rotflmao

Tiger Woods drives one. Steve McNair's ho-mistress/murderer drove one.

Yes, 15 going on 110.

She got herself a job at Dutch Village, dancing in wooden shoes and taking care of the goats. She absolutely hates it, but we forbid her to quit, ever!

Her poor little feet. She has to wear eight pairs of socks under those wooden shoes.

She's a tough little thing. She'll be fine.

LOL

(I'm not kidding either, that's her summer job. Oh lord, but she needs to be tough to survive in this cruel world, eh, Mel? Hahaha) Sorry. laugh

Yes, she did mention something about spinner wheel covers.

Dang, that so explains it. A thug mobile.

I am so onto her, now. Thanks, Cinders.

Of course it's a Cadillac, I always thought Ford made them, but a good friend of ours always buys Cadillacs and she now has an Escalade. Should have known. She is kind of an idol of my daughters.

We have a lot of people who drop off their kids in Escalades at my school. They are usually black or cream colored. My first car was a 1976 Datsun 200sx. It had been blue, but someone had painted it orange and put those stick-on racing stripes on the side. The air conditioning dripped on the feet of the passenger's side, but it had FM radio so I was happy! Ah, memories.

I must say, I feel somewhat disillusioned. Here I was thinking Mel was this kindred spirit old school southern lady, and she's talking about carbide precision tools! I don't even know what those are! Excuse me while I - a REAL southern belle - go to find my hoop skirt and some lemonade. Fiddle-dee-dee!

Toolin' around in an Escalade...

And BTW, Weaver, the Midget was from British Leyland (MG=Morris Garages). They also made Jaguar, Triumph, Riley, Autsin, Rover... and in a stroke of engineering brilliance redesigned the Cooper Mini into the Mini Metro and also built the first (and only) car to ever have a square steering wheel (the Allegro) and a windshield that popped out when you hit a bump...

MGM makes movies...

Now Mel strikes me more as a F150 kind of gal... F150s can haul a lot of stuff home from Walmart and the kids like ridding in the back to keep the stuff from blowing out onto the road. Gotta keep the dog up front though. Takes a lot of work to train a good huntin' dog and if he jumps out to go after a squirrel at 70 MPH, it would be a catastrophe...

F150s tow the trailer better when it's time to move, too...

And when all that stuff goes on sale right after Christmas, you can really load up and be the envy of the neighbors next year. Here's a picture from Mel's Christmas card to show you what I'm talking about:

For shame, Mark. REAL women only live in double-wides. How else can we fit our Precious Moments figurine display cases against the wall????
