Don't worry Mel. That trailer is OBVIOUSLY owned by some Florida retiree who is from NEW YORK. They probably wear black socks with their shorts and eat supper at 4:00.

Mark, FYI, an F150 is not sufficient to haul a trailer of any size. For that, ya gotta have at least an F250, preferably a turbo diesel, like mine. I hauled a whole bunch of FEMA trailers in 2005, so I know! laugh

[quote]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...
/quote]

LOL.

After I typed it, I thought, "MGM isn't right, that's not what it was"

I'm not a car person.

And then after thinking about it, I thought "she probably would be safer in an Escalade rather than that little convertable anyway"

Me, I drive a Hyundai, and I love it.

My husband just bought a Ford 1953 choptop ratrod to rebuild. That's probably not the right way to describe it, and it is uglier than sin. But hey, if it keeps him out of the bars, it's all good.

Hey, LadyClueless!

Luri!!!! I'm a Florida retiree from MICHIGAN who sometimes eats supper at 4pm. We don't wear black socks, but I am so freaking bored not working, I eat as early as possible.

My H wears black Harley shirts, but I threw out all the black socks. I am working on throwing out all the black left in his drawers (no not those drawers), but the shirts. He seems to miss them still, so I have to do it slowwwwwly. LOL

Hmmmmmm My kids wear black socks and want dinner as soon as possible. It's usually by about 530pm. They never wear sandals and DS9 wears shorts. That means black socks pulled up as high as possible with shorts(why even wear shorts? hehehehe)

My kids are mini retirees HAHAHAHA now that is an image. The next time my DS7 says, "Come here shunny," in an old man voice I am going to think about this thread. HAHAHAHA

DH and I went to Ft. Myers FL on our honeymoon courtesy of my aunt who owns/sells condos there. We were the only people in the whole complex who were under 70. It was kind of nice because after 6:00 we had the pool all to ourselves....everyone else was asleep - har har.

weaver, I drive a hyundai too - a Tucson. I love it.

Mel, you know it's really rude to have your own thread and not even come hang out. You people with LIVES really bum me out!

Scotland, your DS is like Mini me. Hahaha. Did you ever see that movie? My mom was Canadian, and I kind of have a Canadian soul. French Canadian, that is. LOL I love your DS without having to have ever met him.

Luri!!!! You are funnier than all get out. Read you every time I come here to read. You rock.

That is all.

PS. Mel, I almost emailed you today. Probably will in about six months. I am going to finally do the deed, and go to a meeting. I love you, Mel. You are my rock.

Of COURSE I watched that movie. It is a must to keep your Canadian citizenship that you have to watch some cheesy movies with Canadian comedians in them. laugh

My WH has my dream car/truck. It is a Santa Fe. It is even blue too. I want my car/truck back. frown Maybe even more than my WH(okay, j/k some days.)

Fred, the only thing missing is the parking ticket tucked under the windshield wiper. I presume that the speeding tickets were handed directly to Mel!

[TJ] Hey, Weaver! Good to see you here![/TJ]

luroosi,

You are just a bit confused

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!


I can tell you that to a girl from Texas the "happiest place on Earth" is HomeDepot. smile I know I am married to one of those Texas girls. MrRollieEyes
