Yeah, like that's NOTHING but a tough chore - make sure you go at lunch time - lol

Yesterday, hubs tells me he's taking a neighbor friend of ours over to Costco and says if I would make a list he'll pick up whatever I needed. As I'm giving him the list, our friend stops by and hubby tells him we have to get some stuff for the Mrs while we're there. I look at them kind of like this - - and ask, "Well isn't that why you guys are going there?" Their response, "Heck no, we're just going to eat!"

"Oh yeah?" quipped her husband, "What did he say about your sixty-five-year-old ass?"

She said, "Your name never came up in the conversation."
The ages have been NOTHING but changed to protect the innocent. That would be me. Mrs. Nucky hasn't stopped laughing yet. Atta girl BK.

Btw, where's fw this morning? Perhaps taking a page out of my book and doing more than NOTHING? Probably so with the arrival of her company just around the corner. I think I'm almost as excited as she is to see how they react to the wonder that is TV.
There was a military equipment show in Mt Dora that we went to and got there just in time to see them unload the tanks. My FIL drove a tank in Pattons 3rd armored and received a purple heart so this was NOTHING but a thrill for my hubby to see them.

Those things shake the ground when coming and not for NOTHING. 60 tons will do that. The Nevada National Guard would bring one onto the University of Nevada, Reno campus and drive it to the front of the main library.

When I got out of the Marines I went to work for a defense contractor that produced all the fire control systems for the M60, M1 and Bradley Fighting Vehicles.
That was NOTHING but 30 years ago.

That had to be NOTHING but scary. Thankfully today's M1 has a much better survivability rating than those old M4's. .
