2.Light up and suck the flame into the pipe... while listening to your friend talk...

Charles was having a nic fit, man. I wish you guys could have been here for the smoky time. It was quite enjoyable.

FYI, if anyone is concerned about this post, feel free to delete it as you all are administrators... A few other blogs link back to ours...

Who would have a problem with this posting? I thin kit looks like it could have been a nice time hanging out. Chuck looks a bit funny holding his pipe propped between his finger tips though.

The last picture is a bit interesting. Chucks hard facial lines and the wisps of smoke rising in front of Sips hair give them a few extra years.
You two boys look so mature.

I wish I could have been there with you. I suppose I can wait four months to break bread and commiserate the slow advance of age with my mates.

Jamison you should have jumped into a few pics your self.

bigsip said...

I'm not concerned with the post at all. It's something I do on special occassions and don't worry too much about.

We also went to Sinclair's and had a good time there. It was altogether a great night for me!

Jamison said...

i couldnt have jumped in the pic, twas I taking the pics!

Brewster said...

I'm highly offended. Smokers, on my blog? How dare ye!

I think I'll post something about my cat just to push this one down.

Jamison said...

I am offended by pussy posts...

Brewster said...

Someone will be offended by the spam we get from that last comment

bigsip said...

Oh, my...

Brewster, you have a cat? Cat's are cute, but can be mean little critters.

I thought posting about your cat was like the blogger's kiss of death, though. It means you've run out of good material.

Brewster said...

Oh but posts about fish and cigars and the high mark of great blogs?

Jamison said...

I rank cats higher than fish posts, and lower than pipe posts...

I like cats alot since they dont bark.

bigsip said...

I've pretty much sworn off cigars...Pipes are sooooo much better!

Cats just seem to be the blog cliche. No offense, just trying to save you from what I've read is the blogger's telling end.

Jamison said...

i am 99% sure that Brew was joking about making a cat post.

He was probably saying something generic that seems uninteresting because he was pretending that he was offended by the pipe smoking pic.

bigsip said...

Oh, I know. Just trying to get some more comments from Brewster. I miss the old boy!

I wish we could have cats. It's just that they'd wind up being foo for our dogs and my wife's terribly allergic to them.

Cat's are pretty cool. They can meow pretty loud though, Jamison.

mullinz8 said...

I’m all for posting something about pussy.

I mean they come in all sorts of varieties some being furry and some not. Large, small, friendly, standoffish there are so many types, it’s like there is one for everybody.

I’ve known many a soft paw in my day and I have to say that my days of chasing after pussy is happily finished.

Sipper you’re right. If you pet them just the right way they can get really loud.

bigsip said...

MEOW!

Someone stop that masked man!

He's gonna post for puss!

Brewster said...

The cat comment was pretty much what jamison said. A play off of a joke at being offended.

And I totally understand that cat posts are pretty much dead. Really, who cares about what a strangers cat did? That's about as exciting as baby posts.

However, I seriously am contemplating a post about my cat. If I do it right it will have a comedic edge. If I do it wrong it will be like taking a sniff of those cat guts.

OH, and I must apologise for my lack of imput here. A general business added to all sort of H-E-double hockey sticks going down at work has created difficulties with me being in the mood to blog

bigsip said...

Oy, sorry Brew...

Yeah, I was just joking, too, man.

I hope things get better soon. Work pains are icky.

Baby stories are reserved for people who care, like grandparents. Does anyone care about cat stories?

Oh well, a cat parody might be funny, I guess.

Try not to let the job stress you too much, Brew. I'll say a prayer for you, bro.

Jamison said...

is your job secure?

Jamison said...

is your job secure?

Brewster said...

Honestly, I don't know. A similar office in Indianapolis is shutting down on Thursday. Numerous people have been fired including my bosses boss. Big positions that have been empty for awhile seem to be remaining empty.

A new COO has come to town and he has been making a lot of changes.

That being said my boss assures me my office will remain open. My boss is a good woman, and I truly believe she would let me know if the axe was about to fall.

bigsip said...

Sounds like your company is getting an enema...

We'll keep praying for you, Brew, but I feel like you're safe. Keep us posted my friend.

mullinz8 said...

Start looking…

I always hate being the “sky is falling” guy but you never know. Less than a month ago Scripps shut down the entire LA office without any sort of notice, that’s some 50 – 70 people who were notified and then two weeks later were without anything.

We’re having a series of meetings around the building with some executive and the rumors, as always are flying around. Supposedly they are just meet and greets but who’s to say. I’ll let you know tomorrow.

I’ve two feelers out for gigs in different departments and as soon as the better of the two opens I’m going to jump ship. The Production boat is rocking too much and the water level looks as though there is only an inch or two left in the tub.

bigsip said...

Dang! What's going on here? All my friends are in career upheaval all at once!

I've been there guys. Trust me, there are better jobs out there. I'm very blessed to have found the one I'm in now.

Hone your resumes and get looking. Better safe than sorry!

Brewster said...

Honestly, I'm not one to worry about these things. I do my job as best I can. If I come in one day and find a note on the door tellig me the office is close, I'll go find the unemployment line.

God provides. I'll find a job elsewhere.

bigsip said...

Good attitude, Brew. We'll still pray for you.

Diana said...

Mullins, you make me cock my head and squint at you. You're a funny man, and I like it.

Hehe. I said a nauty C word.

Today Rachel said something funny about my cat, Pumpkin. She said they should charge less because she's missing a foot. I could write all sort of funny stuff about her, but Orko's pretty boring.

Diana said...

Do any of you know if it's possible to consolodate my debts into one low monthy payment?

I sound like a commercial, but I"m serious, how do I go about this???

Brewster said...

I actually know a lot about consolidating debt, but it will involve a lot of personal questions about your finances. E-mail me off list if you prefer.

A couple of quick things. I wouldn't consolidate unless you really think it is necessary.

The benefits of consolidating is that it will give you one monthly payment instead of six or seven or twenty, if you have that many bills. A good consolidating company can also often lower your interest rates and stop various fees.

The bads are many including really screwing your credit up. For instance, with the company I work for when a customer consolidates we immediately give the card an R9 credit rating. Which means that we force close their card which looks horrible on a credit score.

Also though a consolidator can reduce interest rates and put everything into one nice monthly payment, in the long run you may pay a lot more money. This is because the payments the consolidators pay your creditors turn out to be about the minimum amount they can. This translates into actually paying very little towards the principle.

I would only consolidate if I have a lot (read more than five) creditors and am past due on more than one.

Seriously, either respond here and I can give you tons more info, or send me an e-mail and I can break it down for you more. This is what I do for a living after all

Jamison said...

i heard consolodating hurts your credit.

other than that, i am still dizzy from seeing the word "cock" when said by Di in reference to Mullins.

My first instinct is to grab her and drag her as far away from Mullins as I can... but, that was just in the old days.

Diana said...

What was funny is I didn't even intenionally write it like that. After I did, I realized that I had made a dirty joke. Tee hee.

Well, Charlie and I aren't nearly bad enough to consolodate, then. My idea was to do it before it got bad, but I guess that just makes things worse, so never mind.
