      It is all downhill from 100 :)

      Let me know when we are down to 25 days & then I can countdown like it's a spectacular Christmas present under the tree. Woo Hoo!

  2. A reply I made now has a gold star that says "[popular" on it, first time I've seen something like that. Now I'm wondering what other surprises are programmed in to this board?

      Thank you MIColtsFan. What did the red marks mean :)

      Popularity is fleeting, never got to set at the "cool" table in school.....

      That is hilarious subvet!!! I was an athlete that was not in a clique....I can relate.

  3. Ahh, fall is here.

      Hey subvet, nice to see you back my friend! Real football games on the TV docket is a BEAUTIFUL Thing isn't it?!!

    2. BrentMc11

      Gotta love it in the tough temps you have to work in...glad you have some relief

      It's especially tough now that I don't have computer access, I can read posts here any time but for some reason my tablet won't keyboard won't let me post here so I get on when I can and hopefully stay current enough to get my "fan" card punched.

  4. Ahh, spring is back. Temps in the 50s after a week of record highs.....

    1. BrentMc11

      BrentMc11

      Still 79 in Southern Indiana!

  5. All the bandwagon jumpers are leaving, thats good, more room for real fans!

      Band wagon fans are fun. I'll be here when they return!

      well, I admit, I became a fan because of Peyton, watched him at UT and followed him to Indy, but now I am a Colts fan.

      What's not to love about the Colts? <3 Lions are my number 2 team, so.. you take the good years with the bad and support your team!

  6. Another winter storm blowing through, who was it asking where the snow was??

      we had a lot of wind, just a few snow flurries so far.

    3. southwest1

      southwest1

      Ditto here in Wisconsin too Gramz. High winds & just a few flakes. No real accumulation yet. I never understand why people spend good money to go downhill skiing when I do that everytime it snows on my metallic forearm crutches. Not fun at all in my humble opinion.

    4. BrentMc11

      BrentMc11

      SW....one thing I will never be is a skier....wanted to at one point...I'm feelin it thinking about it buddy!

  7. Beat the Ravens then go visit the Broncos!!

  8. Dallas, Nov 22nd, 1963 find a way to change what happened. And no, I haven't read the Stephen King novel yet--but it's 3rd on my list.

  9. Daughter got engaged 2 weeks ago and today I read an article that the "average" wedding costs almost $27,000!!! Anybody know a millionaire looking to give money away??

      I am with you shecolt. We cannot just give an open check....or we will drain our savings. I have known people who have spent 100K on a wedding....craziness in it's utmost form.

    3. subvet

      subvet

      Yeah but you should have seen the glares I got from my wife AND daughter when I (jokingly) suggested to have it in a country church we all know and have a pot luck in the basement.....

      I could feel the stares even though I wasn't looking their way. Evidently wedding days are nothing to joke about.

    4. southwest1

      southwest1

      Yup, for the bride to be it is their opportunity to play the role of princess. Everything is for her: the cake, the gown, the photographer, the presents, & the shiny diamond ring...Meanwhile, no one came to see rental tuxedo boy & all he gets is a thin silver band on his finger that looks like a washer that fell off a major appliance. Wedding are no laughing matter from the female perspective...EVER!!!

  10. Everyone enhance your mellow, it will get better.

    1. BrentMc11

      BrentMc11

      Do they still make Mello Yellow?

    2. southwest1

      "Enhance your mellow" ...It sounds like a t-shirt slogan for NY Knicks basketball player Carmelo Anthony's fan club to me anyway.

      Old hippie saying from my misspent younger days.....

  11. Finally broke down and hooked up the air conditioner, no more open windows till after fall harvest!

      I hope it makes life easier for You Summertime.

    2. Nadine

      Nadine

      Terrible to have to make that choice. The weather has been back and forth . But extremely hot this past weekend. sweltering!

    3. southwest1

      southwest1

      Air conditioning, ice cream, & root beer floats always feel good in the Summertime.

  12. Forget what I said last night about the heat at work. Just spent 8 hours in a freezer the size of a basketball court chipping ice at -10 degrees. I hope to warm up by morning......

    1. BrentMc11

      BrentMc11

      You are going to have a 'pothole' forming in your bones....big change in temps makes concrete crumble....not good on the bones either. I am living proof.

    2. HungarianColtsFan

      HungarianColtsFan

      In average, the temperature is ok. :) You are always going to extremes? :)

      Bringing new meaning to your screen name.

  13. Gotta go to work early today for safety training. I like the OT but the subject is boooooring!!

    1. BrentMc11

      BrentMc11

      I would love to sit in...used to train it in trucking. Every industry is interesting. Yes sometimes it is like watching paint dry, but so important.

    2. southwest1

      southwest1

      I can sit through almost any lecture topic/safety training as long as I get well compensated for my time & effort. Keeping all your limbs intact & burn free is a good policy in my book.

  14. Great season, next year will be even better!

    1. BrentMc11

      BrentMc11

      I hope we can do better....tougher schedule....better roster.....better record.

    2. southwest1

      southwest1

      Fix the line, fix the line, fix the line...Did I mention fix the line? Do that subvet & I agree with you 100% my friend. :)

  15. Great weekend off, my favorite show "Eureka" is back with the final 6 episodes!

      I do not think I have it...need to check. Thanks!

      thanks for the tip! I never heard of this and it sounds right up my alley

      If you really want to watch it, find the first season and try it. These are the last episodes before cancellation and really aren't as good as the early ones were.

  16. Had a great Easter holiday. Family, food, friends, what more does anyone need?

    1. shecolt

      shecolt

      Glad you had a great day. I did until I made the mistake of tasting a Cadbury cream egg. Yuck! Can't understand why anyone likes them. Just tasted like slimy sugar to me.

    2. MIColtsFan

      MIColtsFan

      wonderful! me too! ready for more of those memories

  17. High of 105 today, not looking forward to working in the bakery today.

      Yeah, it's gonna be miserable and we don't have AC, even the break room just has a fan.

      Taking my standard "hot day" supplies, 6 or 7 liters of sparkling water and gatorade.....

    3. southwest1

      Try not to melt today subvet.

      Good luck subvet....like I have said before...I do not miss my job on days like these....or 20 below for that matter. Good job on the fluids.

  18. Hoping there will be an end to the speculation this week!!

      Irsay haven't tweeted anything since yesterday... He must be working hard on Manning's contract.

      SW...my left thigh still remembers that long needle...has not been the same since.

    4. southwest1

      southwest1

      The sting of that long needle never really goes away unfortunately does it? It still hurts like h*** even years after the fact. Just like #18's departure, it is gonna kill me man because we all know what's comin'up next & we are just waiting for the other shoe to drop with an enormous t-h-u-d...This won't feel good at all. Don't we at least get a sucker for our pain? More like a stiff drink.

  19. Hot at work tonight, lost 6 pounds in 8 hours.....

      Ditto! Hydrate! I remember an old NIKE commercial and it said if you're thirsty you're already a quart low!

    3. MAC

      MAC

      Methinks that Nike might have a vested interest. :)

      My understanding is that thirst is an accurate reflection of need, but that doesn't change the fact that 6 pounds in 8 hours is unhealthy - unless perhaps you are an elephant following a Richard Simmons video.

    4. subvet

      subvet

      It wasn't that hot (93 indoors, 102 near the ovens)but it was humid and we were short handed so there wasn't much down time. I always take 4 or 5 liter size bottles of sparkling water to work with me and drink them all but rarely need to "pause for the cause."

      Nope, I'll never get sunstroke, my water processing equipment works overtime.....but thank you for the good advise!

  20. I gotta say one thing about this place, it's definitely not boring on a Sunday night.....

    1. southwest1

      southwest1

      So, on Sunday night, traffic on Status Update rises significantly or does that mean the party & festivities start at your place Subvet? Does that make you the Master of Ceremonies then? Just Kidding!!!

    2. subvet

      subvet

      It means after the evening news I was both laughing and annoyed with some of the postings on different threads. It was the first extended period spent reading this board and it was not boring.

    3. BrentMc11

      BrentMc11

      I cannot believe how much fun this board is....I get on here just to laugh and have fun with friends!!

  21. I gotta say one thing about this place, it's definitely not boring on a Sunday night.....

  22. I lived in the Dallas area for 13 years, family and friends came out from tornadoes ok thank goodness.

      LOL, Texans are proud of their heritage and it would be more like: "Just sent another yankee home air mail!"

    3. MAC

      :) I'ts a whole different world I guess.

      When I hear my brother - who spent the first 40 years of his life living in NJ, then Philly, then Long Island - talking with a southern drawl, my mouth just hangs open in astonishment with probably spit pooling up on my shirt. Not saying it's a good thing or a bad thing, but I just can't wrap my head around it. At LEAST he isn't a Cowboys fan. That would be just too much.

    4. subvet

      subvet

      That is a problem because the accent is real easy to pick up, the odd thing is when I visit with friends or family from there, which happens often, the drawl creeps back into my speech and it stays for days after getting home again.

  23. I've lost 70 pounds so far this summer, hope the heat breaks before I do!

      13 here....excellent subvet...IF you wanted to lose it. I hope that is the case. Regardless...a great accomplishment.

    3. southwest1

      southwest1

      70 pounds really? If my memory is correct, don't you work in a bakery with hot ovens? That explains you extensive weight loss subvet. Stay hydrated & cool my friend. I don't want you passing out from exhaustion okay. :)

    4. subvet

      subvet

      It's all good, the heat at work helped me lose the weight so I will look my best on 14Sept when I walk my daughter down the aisle and give her away to my new son in law. And there is a bonus to her happiness--he has field level end zone season tickets, don't get me wrong, he will be a wonderful husband as well!

  24. Important tip: If you ever need to find the exact center of anything, drop something and it will be there!

    1. southwest1

      Thanks subvet now Geometry and circumference finally makes sense & has relevance to me. So much for all those pointless general education college courses in my lifetime. HA! HA!

    2. BrentMc11

      SW: Isn't Sir-Cumference Charles Barkley?

  25. In my wildest dreams I never imagined how good this season would be!

      I certainly never expected Peyton Manning to return to Playoff form so quickly & Luck doesn't miss a beat either. Wow! Simply remarkable!!!
