    I mean, I've seen the Oscar Meyer Weinermobile in the flesh (or... whatever), but this is a new one to me...

    They should hire a mover to maneuver that Hoover to my cousin's body shop in Vancouver to add some louvers.

    I had a 1987 Buick Regal black presidential model w/side lights canvas black top with sunroof. 307 Buick motor. Plush interior. I put chrome wheels on it & sweet tires. Aftermarket radio & nice speakers (Audio Jam install) It was my wife's summer car. I will post picture later. Sure miss that car

    They must be playing in Williamsburg Va.

    I just bought 2 boards a week apart from 2 different ladies who were downsizing within the past month.

    They were made for tourists when Williamsburg was "restored" for tourists. Williamsburg Restoration Co. in conjunction with Virginia Metalcrafters made 1st quality reproduction wood and Brass items that were found in old Williamsburg in the past for the gift shops.

    The board that came with WR&VM checkers (They're cool for being checkers.) and the board is stained where the checkers sat for years. These boards are 40+ years old so I'm ok with these.

    The first purchased board is almost like new except for some scratches that aren't too bad to me. The second is like new except for the stains from the checkers.

    Both were 20.00 ea. which is 1/10 of their worth right now give or take.

    I also just bought a Swarovski "silver crystal chess set" in its case this morning that's just like new. I saw one in a passport shop crossing the Canada border 30 YEARS AGO and couldn't afford the 800.00 price. This was 200.00 today and I didn't ask for a reduction since the web has them A LOT higher.
    This was a bargain to me.

    Ugh. That typo... wtf. I completely reversed my own thought accidentally. And I can't even blame a phone! You know what I meant.

    Really?!? He's so deadpan uptight. That alone cracks me up.

    Seemed like he was always just playing himself, but I say that only because I've only seen him in a handful of things, and he was always the same.

    I liked Newhart for the few episodes I saw. That might've been more for Larry, his brother Darryl and his other brother Darryl, and that mean blonde bimbo woman. Poor Peter Scolari... he was the non-preferred Bosom Buddy.

    You should bring them back. Make millions. Make them sugar-free, though, so they'll be healthy.
    Edt: wait, you actually just saw these? They're probably from 1980.

    Yeah, in a General Store on the square a couple towns over. I shoulda put my glasses on and looked for a copyright date or something. It does say “Original Recipe” on the front of the display box which makes me think they are current, but seems like it’d be illegal to manufacture them in today’s world.

    Next time I’m passing through there I’ll stop in, ask what’s up and pick up a pack or two!

    That is such a shame, Jesse, as you are missing out on such great Country Classics, like this gem...

    I'm pretty sure I wore that same shirt for my second grade class picture in 1978...

    Punk kid. I wore that shirt for my senior picture in '78

    I wore that same toupee with my Halloween costume in 1978.

    And also in 1979.

    And in 1981, 1985, 1986, 1987, 1993, 1999, 2001, 2008, 2010, 2014, 2015, and 2021.

    a photograph out of context...

    Maybe they're arresting these guys for selling Edsels?

    Or maybe it's just context for the rise of the compacts in the US ca.1960 B) -- of which the weirdest was Mopar's Valiant.

    https://www.curbsideclassic.com/uncategorized/curbside-classic-1961-valiant-follow-the-leader-the-dilemmas-of-art-vs-commerce/

    I did not know that Valiant originally launched as a brand a la... well... Edsel... or Saturn, or (more recently) Hummer or Ram or (heh-heh-heh) Bronco and Mustang. :#

    Those are the town's new cop cars. Doubt they have cop motors though.
