Early Xmas Present

I bought myself a new snowblower.

And my game tonight (210 miles round trip) was just postponed due to a snowstorm that may or may not happen.

let me prognosticate here:

you have a brand new snowblower
and they pre-cancelled the game ...

NOT going to happen!

Too bad, you could have ridden the new snow blower to the game.

Exclamation

I heard they had a 50 foot nutcracker at the mall. I thought my first wife had been in a radiation accident.

Thanks, folks. I'm here all week. Try the veal.

6 forward gears, too. And 2 reverse ones when I change my mind.

The old snowblower (which isn't going anywhere) is already jealous.

Huh, I've never heard that description before when talking about wives. Must be a Wisconsin thing.

What do you do with it? Never saw a 50 foot nut.

ROFLMAO!

And as far as Padgett and his 50 foot nuts ...some channel or other was playing the best 50 SNL moments, and one of the top ones was Alec Baldwin and his "Schweaty Balls" Christmas candy. I nearly laughed myself unconscious watching it again!

At this pace, it won't be new for long.

In southwest Texas we have re-engineered the snow so that snowblower's are unneccessary. The snow (aka rain) just runs right off and essentially shovels itself.
