    I am wearing my Unabomber disguise.
    Actually I was beta testing the hairstyle for this guy.

    I can see Russ leaning up against a post, saying
    "But I'm tired, been fixin' lights all day"
    She said "That don't befront me,
    Long as I get my money next Friday"
    Now next Friday come he didn't have the rent,
    And out the door he went.

    I was going to do Reservoir Dogs with the guys walking down the street together, but unfortunately their height and body type didn't match the members here. We don't have to be gender specific, but their height has to be accurate! :open_mouth:

    We'd have to rent a bucket truck if we needed one -- instead of just leaving a large quantity of alcohol-containing refreshments out on the stoop* and waitin' for one to show up.

    (apologies if someone already suggested this a year or so ago when this thread was started -- I was too lazy to check & I am too old to remember!)

    * Stoop, for any who might not know, is a very authentic, traditional Bawlmer term for one's front steps/front porch area.

    I have the grandkids take a stick and bang it on a tree late at night....in hopes of hearing the Russ howl. Then I have them leave some wine out in the woods for him. Next morning it's gone, and I tell them see, he was here.

    Yet they never smell the wine on your breath? :D :D :D
  • tonybtonyb Posts: 30,875
    Dude, they know....there's always wine on papa's breath anyway.

    I've also taught them what to listen for to know when the Russ monster is around. Whenever they start hearing the Chuck Berry song, "My ding a-ling", he's around, sinking loud and proud. :)

    Shut up Russ.

    In search of accurate reproduction of music. Real sound is my reference and while perfection may not be attainable? If I chase it, I might just catch excellence.

    The best way to enjoy digital music reproduction is to never listen to good analogue reproduction.
