  I worked with a guy one time when I was in USMC who used to say "We've done it like this since Jesus Christ was a corporal."

   One time I got frustrated with him and told him "Well, he's a sergeant now so lets try something different."

Eating lunch, watching "Gunsmoke" I heard the funniest one in a while,,, Festus got shot in the head but lived,, the old codger that saved  Festus, later turns out to be a crazy ole man,, well,  once they found the outlaw that shot Festus,,and Festus determined to bring him in to hang for killing the sheriff,  the crazy ole codger said to Festus,  "you are so hard headed, I bet your head bent that bullet"!!  now thats' pretty hard headed,,,  :D :D
only have a few chain saws I'm not suppose to use, but will at times, one dog Dolly, pretty good dog, just not sure what for yet,  working on getting the gardening back in order, and kinda thinking on maybe a small bbq bizz,  thinking about it,

I heard a good one from Terry Bradshaw, a Fox Sports Analyst about how poor the New York Giants are playing.  He said that they were like a possum.  They play dead at home and get killed on the road.
