Yeah, and lived to talk about it... It was in 10th 'er 11th grade and Janet Packard was said to be, ahhhhhhh, how you say it??? Okay... An animal in the back seat of anything with wheels... So I spend an afternoon ridin' in the back seat of Art Buckner's mama's 61 Ford with the gal... Got me a little education that afternoon... The kind ya' don't get in school...

Not if it had a Willys engine.

I asked him how fast he was going and he said 100. I figured his Ford had a very ambitious speedometer.

Tell me, Bobert, did you ever tangle with a Packard?

One time when I was in the service I was driving a 1947 DeSoto. Some shipmates and I were on the Maine turnpike and of course, we had to "let them out". He was driving a flat head Ford, 1951 vintage doing 100 mph on his clock. I went by him and my clock showed 95. I wonder what caused that?

Three bedrooms is pretty cozy for a retirement home... an addition might be required in that event, too.

(Might be the right amount of room for the orgies, though.

Well, maeve... We went out yesterday and put surveyer's tape on the plants that do not convey... Ain't gonna be as bad as when we moved here from Wes Ginny... That was right at 550 plants... I think this time it may be closer to 50 that will be moved... Okay, we have a couple three hundred more that are growing in pots or growing in the heeling bed that we're growing on from cuttings... And if we get some rain then we'll take some more cuttings and start them but at least these plants are very manageable and can live in pots quite nicely...

As fir this farm being a retirement home??? Maybe??? Ya'll take up a collection and buy it... That fine with me... We'll send ya'll pics of the new joint ion Charlotte...

It's all about finding the right buyer. When I sold my camp (sniff) I couldn't get anyone to buy it for nearly two years... a $35,000 camp, but it was on a one acre government lease. NOBODY wants to have anything to do with the government. I found a buyer. Had I still been asking $25k, I would have got close to that, but I was happy to get $18k (a profit for me in the long run).

Sometimes, ya gotta sit on sommat for a while. But, I don't think Bobert will have to sit too long... it's beautiful.

Actually, to "buy the farm" meant a "farm" about 6 feet long and 3 feet wide and 6 feet (or so) deep. Even the current USD 100,000 serviceman's life insurance wouldn't pay off the mortgage on a farm. Naturally when I want it I can't find my copy of the "1811 Dictionary of the Vulgar Tongue" but Snopes puts the use of "buy" or "bought" meaning killed back to 1825. "Become a landowner" was, according to the same source, a slang term for being killed in WW1.

I've been accustomed to the expression "buying the farm" for dying all my life. As it happened, I think that early in life I heard a semi-literal usage for it a number of times, referring to some small plane pilot killed in a rural crash - sort of "claiming" a patch of farm land by staking it out with his cadaver. Poppagator's explanation of the origin of the expression rings truer for me, though.

Bobert, I wasn't scared during my little pilgrimage to your mountain there ~ I was just nervous about getting back on the road, jiggling my leg and glancing back and forth at my wristwatch, er, I mean cellphone. I really regret that we didn't have more time, or at least that I couldn't have spent my little time with you two in a more relaxed manner.

By the way ~ are we all familiar with the phrase "buying the farm" as an expression meaning to be killed? Get shot while serving the Army (US Army, anyway) and your GI insurance will allow your folks to pay off the mortgage on the family homestead. I've been wondering if the expression were commonly known throughout the English-speaking world, or just to us 'Murcans ~ when I saw the thread title the other day, that's the first thing I thought...

"Even the gardens are borin"

You know, Bobert, that's an insightful thing to say. This time of year, the garden seems to pause and catch a breath. No more tomatoes or roses, trees look tired.

The weather is pleasant, but it seems like everything wants to slow down and rest a bit before winter comes.

Unless, of course, one is a migrating bird.
