I have been wanting to sell Tireless a few of my posts but he keeps insisting that I take his Fountain as a down payment..............

Please check your links before posting. Poor Tireless is working day & nite to pay his property taxes, send his kids to private school, and pay his wife's Neiman Marcus bills. He may have to switch to 8 y.o. scotch. So please check your facts before wasting his valuable time. P.S. I believe proper grammar on this site would be y'all

Is it a crime for a man to bitch about the fact he has set his sights too high? I turn to this site for the support of my buddies to see me over these major hurdles and challenges.....am I in the wrong company to seek this comfort? I beseech you to answer these questions in a timely manner so that I can regain my societal equilibrium soon.



BTW - the kids will be riding the yellow bus before I drop to 8 y.o scotch.

If you have enough left in the bottle to share a swig with a friend you can lean on me.....Heck! for two swigs you can share my grate

When you posted the pics of the great garage remodel, I knew you where dangerously close to your expenditure limit for this year. It's a good thing your daughter loaned you the paint, or she might already be riding the bus.

Its amazing how young they start learning to get the most out of your money.

You're asking a bunch of guys that routinely drive 50 miles out of their way to Walmart to save $2.99 on a gallon of oil ? If you want some empathy try the guys at the country club. They're in the same boat ....... up to their eyballs in debt btw, if you find the exit for the treadmill (rat race) please let me know - I can't see it from here

You are correct...the massive garage project has me dangerously close to a bankruptcy filing. At least I will have a more organized place to sleep when I am booted from the house!

"Its amazing how young they start learning to get the most out of your money." o how correct that statement is. Here is a recent exchange with my 17 year old daughter.

"Honey, will you take your brother to Blockbusters so he can get some new games?"

"Sure dad, can I have some gas money?"

"Wait a second, you have a 1 year old car that was given to you by your grandmother, I am paying for the insurance, maintenance, etc, and you have a summer job - why should I pay for your gas for a 2 mile drive?"

"First - grandma gave me the car, not you. Second - I can not afford the expensive intown insurance rates and the cost of repairing anything I may break on the car.....and three, I have the summer job so that I can make money for me - not my idiot brother......and besides, you have a lot more money than I do so you should pay me for doing this favor".

At this point the Admiral rapidly enters the room and drags my daughter away before all hell breaks loose.

Thanks for the reminder.......its easy to forget that reality when I get sucked into the YF threads where the guys spend $175,000 for a trash hauler (king macs)! I also assumed Bull would show some empathy since he is probably living south of the border after his apprenticeship with Robert Vesco.

Nope.....no debt, no CC (although we are members of a very upscale YMCA), no girlfriends........I do it the dumb old fashion way - cash (which just makes my treadmill have to spin that much faster given our tax code).

We weathered the storm alright. It took a couple days to clean up the yard and haul my flattened boat shed to the street(rightofway). We were out of power about a week, and the phone was out a few days longer(its only dial up down there). I'm back in the "Land of Lincoln" now loading boxes, cleaning and painting. With any luck we'll be down to one home port by thanksgiving

Anybody wanna buy a house in the middle of the US its a short drive to the Gulf, and just a wee bit further to either the Pacific or the Atlantic
