Old days......


Obama Yoga pants.  WTH?

Here's the plug:  Whether you're in yoga class or lazing around on your favorite couch, these exercise pants will keep you comfy and stylish.

This, from the Man Child that just delivered a speech calling us soft & generous of him.  

"Our Boy Lollypop..."  

The Democrats are abandoning ship!  The 17 Congressrat to "decide" not to run for re-election is none other than the "I didn't know there was a prostitution ring running out of my basement", Barney Frank.  Fearing a royal butt whipping in the election next fall Olde Barney announced his departure today.

Rep. Barney Frank (D-Mass.) announced Monday that he will not seek reelection in 2012, ending a three-decade career in the House.

Frank will be remembered for being gay, prostitution, destroying Fannie Mae & Freddie Mac......amongst other failed and frivolous things.

Monday's Pun(s) !!!

In high school I recall having a beautiful but difficult math teacher. She was easy on the eyes and hard on the pupils!

People in medieval days were always hanging out by the gallows.

For a while, Houdini used a lot of trap doors in his act, but he was just going through a stage.

An Endorsement for Perry

Marcus Luttrell.  
Yeah, that Marcus Luttrell. 

Knowing history can give one perspective on what to do in the future.

I'm just sayin......

Back On!

Home from the annual Trot for Turkey in Yuma Arizona.  May have started a new tradition this go round.  Took a few of the Weapons from the cache and went to Adair Ranges just north of Yuma.  The whole family was involved and when all was said and done, many rounds had been sent downrange.  Ever chased a golf ball across the range with a ?? ....well you get my drift.  A good time was had.

Go Lions!!!!

A Turkey Day match up against the Meatpackers from Green Bay.  Should be a good one

Go Lions!!!!

Happy Thanksgiving! 

Have a puntastic day!

Thanksgiving is a time when turkeys turn from gobblers to gobblees.

That reminds us of the hostess who served a delicious turkey dinner that
tickled all of the guests. She forgot to remove the feathers.

My wife gave me a haircut this morning. Tomorrow, she's going to make
Thanksgiving dinner with all the trimmings.

The Turkey Pardons a Turkey

Obama's Number One!

A Russian newsreader recently demonstrated her support for president Zero by utilizing hand signs while reading the news. 

Or something like that......

More Helpful Information...(?)

Sheesh, might as well get our Public Service Announcements out of the way .....

So, the kids are home from school for the Holiday Break.  They are bored...blah, blah, blah...driving you crazy.  Here's a tip, offer to take them for a car ride.  My guess is you will only have to do this once.

Sound Advice.

Holidays are coming and some folks get "depressed".  Personally, I save my grief for January when the Visa bill arrives...but, I digress.  Knowing what you suffer from is the first step towards getting better.  Thus, we here at the Chronicles, sensitive folks that we are, offer the first in a series of award winning posters to help you recognize and cope.

Kind of a Cope & Change for the Holidays.

(Your welcome)

Jolly Jokers...

Time for you turkeys to fire up the PR machine.


Porsche accessories, that is.  Me thinks I have found a gift for the Southeast Coast Editor at Large for Christmas.  

Don't tell will be our secret.

Monday's Pun(s) !!!

The place to trade dresses is called a frock exchange.

Whoever invented the girdle got a bum wrap.

The man put his name on the neck of his shirt so he would have collar ID.

Wings Win!!

Spent the evening at the Honda Ponda watching the Wings play the DuhUcks.  SNT and I picked up SNO at UCI and rolled north for the game.  Good game...hell, great game.  Edge of the seat for the last ten minutes as the Wings fought off a late surge by the home team.  The DuhUcks threw everything they had at the Wings...pucks, sticks two referees and a partridge in a pear tree.  The bank shot goal by Stuie with seconds left sealed the deal.

Let's Go Red Wings !!!

Bo Derek, LL Cool J, Sammy Hagar, Robert Duvall,  FiftyCent, Meat Loaf, Sarah Palin,

Engelbert Humperdinck

A little Saturday morning music.  My Grandma loved this song.   I recall her visiting and finding this album in a local store in Michigan.  We drove her back to Sudbury and "smuggled" it in to Canada.  Not really.....she was so nervous about having a "contraband" album in the car at the border.  Blurted it out to the border guard from the back seat.  I received a "stern" dress down from the border guard, with a wink. Yup, Grandma showed the Rumbear what for.  Bless her nervous law abiding soul.


Occupado Toronto...

Exposed as a fraud, eh?! The tents are empty.  I am shocked!  Shocked, I say!

The kids are prolly home snuggled in to Mom's basement playing X-Box.  

Time to add a few rounds to the supply.  Better yet.....take a day at the range and rotate the inventory, as they say.

Monday's Pun(s) !!! 

The dairy farmer while milking his cow strained his calf in the process.

It's raining cats and dogs. Well, as long as it doesn't reindeer.

When the human cannonball retired they couldn't find a replacement of the right caliber.

Rick Perry...

and a gaffe.

OMG Rick Fricking Perry made a mistake!  Clearly he cannot be President.  Ole 57 states Barry is waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay smarter.

Poor Confused Bastards. 

So olde Joe Pa gets tangled up in a scandal and gets fired.  Penn State students gather and throw a little riot to support him.  

Except....he was fired because of his "involvement" in the cover up of the heinous, despicable, disgusting, reprehensible antics of Jerry Sandusky and 10 year old boys in the Penn State locker room.   Note to Penn State students....IT'S CALLED CHILD RAPE!

Lemme see...let's do a scale of justice balancing act.  Child Rape vs Coach Finishes Football Season.  Hmmmm....somehow these poor confused bastards tilted for ...... football.  

Morons.  Absolute morons.

So much for a Penn State education.......

Got This From Me Olde Boss.

Once we were freight those were some fun times.
Jim Bob Duggar 

You dog, you.  another kid?  20?  Wow!

Michelle Duggar and her husband Jim Bob are expecting their 20th child, the couple revealed exclusively to TODAY.
"We are so excited," Michelle Duggar told TODAY Moms before the broadcast. Now three and a half months pregnant, the mom of 19 says she was actually surprised to discover that she's expecting again at 45. "I was not thinking that God would give us another one, and we are just so grateful."

How the heck do you feed and clothe 20 kids?  College?

Just Sayin.... 

(not sure where I stole this from)

The Edmund Fitzgerald. R.I.P.

Gordon Lightfoot wrote a song about it.  Families mourned their losses.  Many wondered how it could happen. 36 years ago November 9, 1975, the gales of November came calling.....

The Fitzgerald left Superior, Wisconsin, at 2:15 p.m. on the afternoon of November 9, 1975,[31]Ernest M. McSorley. She was en route to the steel mill on Zug Island, near Detroit, Michigan,[32] with a cargo of 26,116 long tons (29,250 ST; 26,535 t) of taconite ore pellets and soon reached her full speed of 16.3 miles per hour (14.2 kn; 26.2 km/h).[33] Around 5:00 p.m., the under the command of Captain Fitzgerald joined a second freighter under the command of Captain Jesse B. "Bernie" Cooper, the Arthur M. Anderson, destined for Gary, Indiana, out of Two Harbors, Minnesota.[34] The weather forecast was not unusual for November and the National Weather Service (NWS) predicted that a storm would pass just south of Lake Superior by 7:00 a.m. on November 10.[35]
The NWS altered its forecast at 7:00 p.m., issuing gale warnings for the whole of Lake Superior.[37] The Anderson and the Fitzgerald altered course northward seeking shelter along the Canadian coast[34] where they encountered a massive winter storm at 1:00 a.m. on November 10. The Fitzgerald reported winds of 52 knots (96 km/h; 60 mph) and waves 10 feet (3.0 m) high.[38] Captain Paquette of the Sykes reported that after 1:00 a.m., he overheard McSorley say that he had reduced the ship's speed due to the rough conditions. Paquette said he was stunned to later hear McSorley, who was not known for turning aside or slowing down, state, "we're going to try for some lee from Isle Royale. You're walking away from us anyway ... I can't stay with you."[36]
At 2:00 a.m. on November 10, the NWS upgraded their warnings from gale to storm, forecasting winds of 35–50 knots (65–93 km/h; 40–58 mph).[39] Until then, the Fitzgerald had followed the Anderson, which was travelling at a constant 14.6 miles per hour (12.7 kn; 23.5 km/h),[34] but the faster Fitzgerald pulled ahead at about 3:00 a.m.[40] As the storm center passed over the ships, they experienced shifting winds, with wind speeds temporarily dropping as wind direction changed from northeast to south and then northwest.[38] After 1:50 p.m., when the Anderson logged winds of 5 knots (9.3 km/h; 5.8 mph), wind speeds again picked up rapidly and it began to snow at 2:45 p.m., reducing visibility; the Anderson lost sight of the Fitzgerald, which was about 16 miles (26 km) ahead at the time.[41]
Shortly after 3:30 p.m., Captain McSorley radioed the Anderson to report that the Fitzgerald was taking on water and had lost two vent covers and a fence railing. The vessel had also developed a list.[42] Two of the Fitzgerald's six bilge pumps ran continuously to discharge shipped water.[43] McSorley said that he would slow his ship down so that the Anderson could close the gap between them.[42] In a broadcast shortly afterward, the United States Coast Guard (USCG) warned all shipping that the Soo Locks had been closed and they should seek safe anchorage. Shortly after 4:10 p.m., McSorley called the Anderson again to report a radar failure and asked the Anderson to keep track of them.[44] The Fitzgerald, effectively blind, slowed to let the Anderson come within a 10-mile (16 km) range so she could receive radar guidance from the other ship.[45]
For a time the Anderson directed the Fitzgerald toward the relative safety of Whitefish Bay; then at 4:39 p.m., McSorley contacted the USCG station in Grand Marais, Michigan, to inquire if the Whitefish Point light and navigation beacon were operational. The USCG replied that their monitoring equipment indicated that both instruments were inactive.[46] McSorley then hailed any ships in the Whitefish Point area to report the state of the navigational aids, receiving an answer from Captain Cedric Woodard of the Avafors between 5:00 and 5:30 p.m. that the Whitefish point light was on but not the radio beacon.[40][47] as well as something about a vent that Woodward could not understand.[48] Some time later, McSorley told Woodward that "I have a 'bad list', I have lost both radars, and am taking heavy seas over the deck in one of the worst seas I have ever been in".[49] Woodward testified to the Marine Board that he overheard McSorley say, "Don't allow nobody on deck",
By late in the afternoon of November 10, sustained winds of over 50 knots (93 km/h; 58 mph) were recorded by ships and observation points across eastern Lake Superior.[50] The Anderson logged sustained winds as high as 58 knots (107 km/h; 67 mph) at 4:52 p.m.,[44] while waves increased to as high as 25 feet (7.6 m) by 6:00 p.m.[51] The Anderson was also struck by 70-to-75-knot (130 to 139 km/h; 81 to 86 mph) gusts[50] and rogue waves as high as 35 feet (11 m).[13]
The last communication from the doomed ship came at approximately 7:10 p.m., when the AndersonFitzgerald of an upbound ship and asked how she was doing. McSorley reported, "We are holding our own." She sank minutes later. No distress signal was received and ten minutes later the Anderson could neither raise the Fitzgerald by radio, nor detect her on radar notified the
