  1. I don't know how many roundabouts there are in Carmel, but I think I went through at least 20 of them today . . . which brought back memories of how hard it was for me to enter jump roping without tripping or being whacked in the head.

      Corn-y, a-maze-ing, radish-cal in a round-about way!

  2. Stopped to buy gas today. My vehicle said it was 8 degrees outside. There was a young man putting gas in his car. He was wearing a t-shirt, shorts, and flip flops. Is that supposed to be macho? Cause it just seems rather dumb to me.

      @Suna I read that as "pass" and not "get" at first. I was a little thrown. lol

      Yes shecolt, you are exactly right that fellow is not too smart. I do envy you California people & your warm temperatures 100GFB. :)

      That's a thing people do now. I can appreciate not wanting to wear shoes but I'd be too cold

  3. I haven't written a blog for a long time and this is one that may only be appreciated by those with young children or grandchildren; but I wanted to share the story of the smile my grandson, Luke, put on my face today. He was told that he could pick out some books at the library and one of the books he choose was "Sport's Illustrated Kid's Football ABC's". Good job, Luke! When he saw a picture of Andrew Luck wearing his Colt's uniform; he said, "Colts". That really made me smile because I have been working for months to get my almost two-year old grandson to say, "GO COLTS". The only problem is that he can't figure out why a football is called a ball because he thinks all balls should be round. So, grandma still has a lot of work to do; but I am hoping that my story may have put a little smile on the faces of anyone who reads this . . . and . . . GO COLTS!!!
  4. The Fort is #10 of the top 20 coldest large cities in the U.S. which makes me feel more justified for my years of moaning, whining, and complaining. http://www.weather.com/news/weather-winter/20-coldest-large-cities-america-20140107?pageno=11

      It's a spacious room 100GFB & you can have my ticket, reservation, & share the plush surrounding with shecolt if you want. That's how SW1 rolls. Ha! Ha! :)

      After living in Fort Wayne for over 20 years, I never thought of it as being that cold. With the exception of this year, of course.

      I like your Hoosiers basketball team a great deal shecolt! Besides, Indianapolis people are so nice. BrentMc11, Jay Kirk, CM51, Gramz, & all INDY natives that I have come in contact with on this site. :) I feel like an honorary brother blessed by such good, wholesome, funny, & down to earth people. Thanks for allowing a fellow WI Badger into your inner circle. :D

      Hey SW1 I'll drink to that!

  10. Getting a Colt's poster in the mail was a ray of sunshine in an otherwise cold, miserable week. My thanks to Nadine and the Colts for everything they do to show the fans how much they care about them. Even, the postage to mail all these posters has to be expensive as it cost $2.12 just to mail one to me. Thanks again and GO COLTS!

      Thanks shecolt. I just really like to see friends of mine get rewarded for all their hard work. Plus, you are a very kind person & I'm happy to see that selfless generosity get noticed. True, I do not know you personally, but the way you conduct yourself on here I can tell that you are a very understanding & laid back person. I appreciate the hug too. :D

      Some good old fashioned ingenuity was definitely used there. 1 Question or an observation: That inventor had both a paved, level, & short drive way. What if a person lived at the end of a long, steep, gravel based driveway surrounded by tall trees & thick brush that might interfere with that remote controller successful operational capacity? A remote rural setting as opposed to a urban suburban community etc. etc.

      I am not criticizing your friends incredible device shecolt. I am just merely pointing out that the device in question is not ideal or tailor made for every driveway or house location dwelling in a 1 size fits all winter blowing capacity that's all. Still a cool gizmo though. :)

      I thought I liked the idea of Thursday football for the whole year but now I am not so sure. Not to mention it didn't seem like but 2 of the games were even worth watching.

      How I wish they'd stopped it one week earlier.

      I've always found it uncomfortable - even on Tday. The short week leads to irrational results and is damaging to teams. I've always thought that it should ONLY involve two teams coming off a bye week.

      I love the prime time games, but to me a "Saturday Night football" would make a LOT more sense. Heck, if you time it off the bye weeks you can have Friday night football too. :)

      Well just relax as you probably need to get your mind off football for even just one day. Love Sunday nights though!

  13. Yes, that's it. But, please don't tell anyone as I have a few more boxes to send out this week to several others whom I think have earned a well deserved break from making their picks.
  14. I was wondering if that box of Twining's tea that I sent you had arrived. And, I'm happy to hear that you have been enjoying it.
  15. A nail and a screw were hitchhiking along the road. My vehicle decided to give both of them a lift. Thankfully, neither the nail nor the screw was greedy and showed their gratitude by both jumping into the same tire.

      Sorry to hear about your blown tire shecolt. I like your storytelling technique though. It was very clever. Sadly though replacing a tire is never cheap or easy. My condolences. :(

  16. I splurged today and bought one of those Colt's glasses at Arbys. Now, I'm trying to decide if I want to put some royal blue food coloring into the milk I just poured into my glass.

      I am full on operation blue out!

  17. I've been away from the forums the past few days, so I was surprised to see that I am leading in Coltman51's group. Anyhow, I'm here to brag while I can because I'm sure it's only a matter of time before that sly, cunning CF4L bumps me off my throne.
  18. I wanted to treat myself to a roll of the Colt's duct tape that I saw today. But, I couldn't justify spending $6.69 for 10 yards of tape. So, I settled for a 30 cent box of crayons. Now, does anyone know where I can get a Colt's coloring book?

      @CF4L Thank you! I'll check that out. Now, I need to convince Nadine that we need to have a Colt's coloring contest.

      @Princeton I saw the tape at my local Meijer store, but you could probably find it in other stores or online.

      Rhymes too much with Jericho. One thing is for sure, I don't want any walls come tumbling down, will pray for that :)

      It doesnt afect me much as all I do is drive to Drs , all quite close, & to moms assted living , also not to far,

      EVEN the ER i haave to go to to often to meet mom is only 4-5 miles away

      when i return a leased care they know they get a bargain as hardly any miles on it, but do know it greatly affects others

      On the rare occasion I go out with friemnds, they know not to let me drive in my medical condition

      crazycolt1

      Tell me about it! It's costing me a ton just to drive the 2 grandsons to football practice 4 trips a day. Now I get to pay for the gas to go to the games starting pretty soon. I think the farthest is like 60 miles one way.
