I thought I just saw something on the news about a 95 year old man getting harassed for supposedly groping his nursing home help.......................

at 95 he could claim dementia and just about get away with anything...............

maybe one of the OLDER GS'ers like Ruxxy or H1 could provide additional details................... just askin'............

.....Hoxxy is sharing from his personal notes here guys...... I'm writing this down...... I have added the personal touch of having a wad of $100 dollar bills hanging out of different pockets....

finally was able to see the previously posted pictures from H1.................. my initial thoughts were he must have fallen out of his barcalounger and bumped his head............

knowing that the North American International Auto Show is arriving shortly here in the Motor City............... there always seems to be much discussion about the latest and greatest upcoming models............ since the base camp also is represented here in the Motor City......... rather than whip up a new model that may or may not reach production............ the following baser models will be on display.................

saw H1's pedal bus and just shook my head in disbelief........... if that was the best thing the GS'ers could come up with......... wonder what they will think of the baser camp bus......



fast, sleek and narrow........ quite unlike the widebodied pedal version developed out in the corn fields of mid America...........

and then to help any baser transport any items they need to be moved.............. a restoration on an old Peterbilt was completed in the alley behind the hovel...........

kinda puts all others to shame............................ rented it to Reliable Carriers here in MI for use as a promotion vehicle to get more funds for the lower level tavern..................

So...I'm at the local watering hole quaffing a (ok, many) Blue Moon when a couple walk by the table. My bleary, blood-shot eyes notice he is wearing a Corvette shirt. Hey, I ask, what do you drive? His reply..."I have a 2014 Corvette, the first of that style...and I'm from Nebraska". Well, flop house mouse, am I impressed...
But, I have to ask...was that a relative of yours H1?

Yuppers...I slid my hand up her leg (turned out it was the table) and found this sticky gooey stuff. Did someone lose their gum?

H1, I have a couple places in mind but we will start with...Salt Flats:



This guy is my hero. The story is he did everything possible to save weight/streamline to get the record.



Luxurious transportation will be available...



For those that have never seen the movie if you are a speed freak you must...MUST...see World's Fastest Indian.
It may not earn the Good Housekeeping seal of approval but the LSDHL liked it!
That is all.

Hey guys.....thanks for the well wishes today. Fired up the grill this evening and grilled a couple T-Bones for the wife and I. Love that grain-fed beef. Wife made me an applesauce cake too........oh, you can't beat that with a stick. This evening I'm splurging, and having a margarita or two......or three. Otherwise, it was just another day for this old geezer.

I talked with Jim Travis over lunch at Bonneville last Summer. He was the historical source for the movie. He owned the Pumpkin Seed streamliner that Danny Thompson drove in the movie. Jim held several records at Bonneville and dry lakes with that car.

He was the primary restorer of the MT Challenger I and a bunch of other race cars. I donated several magazines for the photos to help restoration details. I didn't know Jim at the time, but a friend was part of the project and asked for my help.

Although I'm just as guilty, I can't believe all of us failed to remember the 2nd anniversary of our namesake's untimely passing. David Olshina (aka Hameister) left the building on Jan 5, 2016.

I agree. It sure doesn't seem like 2 years have passed.

I just passed a bad memory 10th year anniversary on January 7th. I survived a workplace shooting where 3 co-workers were killed and 7 others injured. It was the most helpless feeling I have ever had in my life because you have no idea what to do. I was one of the lucky ones; it was not my time to go. You tend to re-evaluate things in life when something like this happens to you.

On their way to get married, a young Roman Catholic couple is involved in a fatal car accident.

The couple find themselves sitting outside the Pearly Gates waiting for St. Peter to process them into Heaven. While waiting, they begin to wonder: Could they possibly get married in Heaven?

When St. Peter showed up, they asked him.
St. Peter said, 'I don't know. This is the first time anyone has asked. Let me go find out,' and he leaves.

The couple sat and waited, and waited. Two months passed and the couple are still waiting. As they waited, they discussed that if they were allowed to get married in Heaven, what was the eternal aspect of it all. 'What if it doesn't work?' they wondered, 'Are we stuck together forever?'

After yet another month, St. Peter finally returns, looking somewhat bedraggled. 'Yes,' he informs the couple, 'you can get married in Heaven.'
'Great!' said the couple, 'But we were just wondering, what if things don't work out? Could we also get a divorce in Heaven?'

St. Peter, red-faced with anger, slammed his clipboard onto the ground. 'What's wrong?' asked the frightened couple.
'
OH, COME ON!', St. Peter shouted, 'It took me three months to find a priest up here! Do you have any idea how long it'll take me to find a lawyer?



Donald Trump and Obama ended up in the same barber shop. Each being worked on by a different barber, not a word was spoken.

The barbers were even afraid to start a conversation, for fear it would turn to politics.

As the barbers finished their shaves, the one who had Obama in his chair reached for the aftershave.

Obama was quick to stop him saying, "No thanks, my wife Michelle will smell that and think I've been in a whorehouse all day."

The second barber turned to Trump and said, "How about you sir?"

Trump replied, "Go ahead; my wife doesn't know what the inside of a whorehouse smells like."
