Jimmy's New 44' Freeman

Many of you have seen Jimmy taking delivery of his new 44' Freeman on the home page of this site. Billy Freeman has only custom built 2 pilot house models of their renowned catamaran boats (that's all they build.) The first was Jimmy's 33 footer and now this new one. Both were team efforts between F...

Re: Thoughts on the Island Reserve clothing line?

I really miss the days when each store had some of it's own "original" stuff too. It's almost like it's too cookie cutter anymore. And even when in Nashville I wasn't super impressed with the selection. The stuff sold at Sam's Club is so thin and cheap feeling I don't even bother with it. That 's a...

Break It To Me Gentlty

Jasper went on a trip and asked his neighbor Cletus to watch out for things around his place while he was gone. After a couple days Jasper called Cletus and asked him how things were going. Cletus: "Not too good. Your cat ran out In the street and got hit by a car and was killed." Jasper: "Man, that...

Re: The Beach Bum - Movie

I don't mind going to a bad movie as I'm a senior and get a pretty good ticket price where we go. What bothers me is that I drop a paycheck at the danged concession stand while watching the junk.

Wife & Weight

My wife has been struggling a bit with her weight. I would never say anything negative to her about that. I wouldn't want to hurt her feelings and I also like certain of my body parts right where they are. But the other day we were out and she noticed a lady who obviously had a nice grocery budget a...

Re: The Beach Bum - Movie

Here's a question for you. Has Matthew McConaughey ever made a movie that the director didn't find a way to make him take his shirt off? Of course it obviously will happen in this thing. Every time my wife and I have gone to a Matt movie I bet her that he will take his shirt off. I've never lost But...

Re: Buffett Performs National Anthem at NFC Playoff

I watched it, wasn't impressed, not sure what the mic drop was all about. Maybe the mic drop was a sign of relief kinda like, "Whew, I got through it without screwing up." Plenty of people have messed up the lyrics big time. I forget his name now but there was an opera singer who used to perform th...

Re: Buffett Performs National Anthem at NFC Playoff

Ehhhhh my saints were robbed. What a terrible way to lose. If the rams end up pulling it off ( they won’t) it has it be a bit jaded by that win. As for the national anthem, jimmy sang it like 72 year old jimmy would sing it. I thought it was fine. He never had a wide range of vocals. Jimmy is legen...

Re: Buffett Performs National Anthem at NFC Playoff

Jimmy doesn't have a wide range of vocal notes, and never has. But he sang the notes correctly (without the dramatic performance other artists seem to want to do), and I was fine with it. The mic drop? Eh. Silly, and not sure what it added to the performance. Yep. Jimmy has never boasted about his ...

Red China

The other day I asked my wife what her opinion was on Red China.

She said it would probably be OK with a white tablecloth.

Oh well, I guess she's right after all. When will I learn to be very careful with context?

Re: Jimmy Buffett Get out the vote event West Palm

JB never takes his politics to a show, at least as far as I know and I haven't heard otherwise. That's the main thing. I remember when the bathroom deal went down in North Carolina in 2016. Springsteen cancelled his show which was coming up quickly. Ticked off many a fan, not because of his politics...

Re: The Wheel (Of Fortune)

I saw that on FB, too.. Fun but lots of $ for taxes, so not much of a prize. :) I don't understand this logic. Who cares if it's taxed as income? A $350,000 prize taxed at 50% is still $175k more than zero. I agree. It's just worth pointing out. Believe it or not there are people who don't understa...

My wife called me into the great room last night. Sher was watching The Wheel. They are giving away one of those Latitude Buffett homes this week for a lucky puzzler solver. Big tax bill comes with it of course.

There are two excellent theories on the subject of arguing with women. Unfortunately neither one works.
