And how do you get the Altoids out after the wax cools? :dontknow:
My tea candles work fine all by themselves.

No they don't, they come standard with A/C, FM, and whitewall tires.

But if I needed a reflective lid I could use the windscreen I'm lugging anyway.

So how many dogs carry guns on the trail? We need a dog carrying a gun smile by the way.

Exactly. Why bother with all the hassle. Isn't that what a headlamp is for anyways? I don't want a burning candle in my hammock.

Um, did any one recently see a German Shepherd with a Ruger GP100? She reads these posts and thinks I'm serious.

My wife and son are both redheads, and my daughter is strawberry blonde.

The correct spelling is 'hienna', not 'henna'


and they were not created from redheads; they evolved.

Henna (or hienna) may turn a girls hair reddish, but it doesn't give them that drop dead lovely complexion or the sweet disposition which comes from being the loveliest creature to walk the earth.
Just sayin'

Henna is used to dye fabrics or skin. As in henna tattoos. Henna for hair was back in the Roman times. You must be really old...

When I was a kid, a woman who changed her hair color had three choices; henna, peroxide or walnut juice.

I think prevarication is what you do just before you take two weeks off from work.

I think prevarication is what you do just before you take two weeks off from work.No, no, no. Prevarication is what they do before they give you a shot, like a flu or tetnus varication. So I guess it just means swabbing with an alcohol wipe and saying 'you'll just feel a little prick'. Which I wish they wouldn't say.

I feel like that All the time.Especially if you get a young nurse....

...as if that ever happens outside of Port Charles' General Hospital, but let's pretend...

and she says "You're going to feel, like, a little prick."

Commas don't always come across well in verbal conversations.
