An Idle Mind

Requiem for a Refrigerator

She was with us for six years, ever faithful, keeping us well fed. She was cold and unfeeling, but warmed to us near the end. Alas, that proved her undoing.

Illegal Immigration

I have an illegal immigration problem closer to home. I have put up a wall, maintain a police force, yet illegals scale the wall and evade the police, crossing the borders of my CPU and take refuge in my mailbox and unguarded areas of my Blog. So far most are just here to work – they try selling me sexual enhancement products, swing me a deal on my mortgage, of offer me stock tips. However there are a few that try to lure me into dark alleyways where they can rob me and do me harm.

Jack Lelanne is still alive?

Jack Lelanne was the proto-fitness guru in the 60s. He would do spectacular feats if strength and endurance to show what healthy living and buying his health products could do for you. He is 97 and still doing promotional tours so I guess the health products he recommends aren’t the useless crap I thought they were.

Thanks for the compliments and condolences. I like to think of her as just cooling beer in another dimension..

/t.: Thanks /t.. It seems almost heartless to cool the beer I am going to drink to send the old fridge off in the new fridge, but as I have said before, warm beer sucks.

Get rid of the illegals.

Jack lalane's wife could kick my ass.
I remember 27 years ago watching him at Age 70 Handcuffed, shackled, and fighting strong winds and currents, towed 70 boats with 70 people from Queen's Way Bridge in the Long Beach harbor to the Queen Mary, 1 ½ miles.

RIP refrigerator.

I think that cooling beer in the new fridge to send off the old is perfectly appropriate :)

Ohhh, well ... life goes on.
New inputs, new surprices ... (as my father used to say)

I like your “Fridge Ascending to Heaven” collage. Seems blasphemous somehow.

You mean that you did not take it out back and shoot it full of snake shot and double00?

I guess that is a Florida thing.

Must be why I have had less trouble the past couple of days.
I like your new fridge. Does it double up as a Venus fly trap?

Isn't that amazing about Jack, 97, hes got all the answers.

What's a refrigerator? And why do we add a "D" when we call it a "Fridge"?

Just wondering aloud. . .

HEY!!! you like Piers Anthony.... :)

LOL at the invaders. Sorry about the fridge

LL:He'll out live us all!!

hammer: Then he hopped out of the water and whipped Chuck Norris's ass! And he could still whip Norris.

keshi:Computer cooties!!

caramaena::Well the beer was good anyway.

kirsten:It wasn't too sad, we knew it was only a matter of time before it gave its last gurgle

SL: All Refrigerators go to heaven

Gnat: Where were you with that idea two days ago – I have a whole box of 00 I could have used up. Might have shot a little high and put a few rounds through the neighbor's house as a bonus.

fuff: The picture is my old fridge on its way to chill god's beer.

tkk:Yes he does, in fact I think I get Spam from one of his subsidiaries.

nanuk:The way Global Warming is going you better go out and by a fridge. I think fridge comes from “frigid”, but I still call it the icebox.

ppk Who doesn't? He's the god of bad puns!!

DAK:Yeah and the feds haven;t been any help. No worries about the fridge, it was just her time. I was thinking of taking the doors off, tipping it over in our front yard and planting flowers in it.

Nice blog.. I'll come back for sure :]

Uh mean large appliances don't live forever? DRAT!!

Send the invaders packing. Or better yet - use your 00 on them. No, wait. Bad idea. They're in your computer aren't they? Dang. Nuffin' to do then but sit down with a cold beer and warm up your delete finger, eh?

I don't think Jack's still alive really. It's a conspiracy, I tell ya! OK. Maybe not. But I'm still not gonna be anywhere near as healthy as he is. I refuse! I go, eating my freshly made cheeseburger just to prove I'm serious. Mwahahah!

At 4:00 PM, Blogger The Phosgene Kid said...

DM:Yeah, I can't get enough of those special deals just for me!! Sad thing is some jackass must be buying into the SPAM ads or they would quit sending them.

EC:Jack Lelanne is probably animatronic, Lie Mr. Lincoln at Disneyland. Don't tempt me to blast my computer. I think about that a lot...
