    "On the Hard" because I hardly ever sail anymore. I'm like that old Cal 29 that has been sitting on jack stands for the last 4 years in the back of the boat yard.

    That's an incredible story about JJW just listening to the guy play and never letting on that he wrote the song

    I was walking through the cemetery this morning and saw a guy crouching down behind a tombstone. I said, “Morning.” He said, “No, just taking a sh*t..”

The Italian says, ‘When I’ve a finished a makina da love withah my wife, I go down and gently tickle the back of her knees, she floats 6 inches above a da bed in ecstacy. The Frenchman replies. ‘zat is noting, when Ah’ve finished making ze love with ze wife, Ah kiss all ze way down her body, and zen Ah lick za soles of her feet wiz mah tongue, and she floats 12 inches above ze bed in pure ecstacy.joke The redneck says, ‘That aint nothing. When I’ve finished porkin the ole lady, I git out of bed, walk over to the winder and wipe my weener on the curtains. She hits the f****n’ ceiling.

    Darwin strikes again

    I'm curious about the "Non-Jag owning" reference since it doesn't appear to have any bearing on this at all. Despicable act. Glad he will get some time for that. Can you enlighten me?
  5. Archives.... (207): Just saw 4 of my students at Denny's at 4am on a Tuesday. We all pretended not to see each other, as we are all clearly tipsy and/or stoned. Class is in less than 4 hours. Either i'm getting too old for this shit or they're starting on the road to crazy-town much earlier these days.

    Where there's a Will...

    I knew that was wrong when I wrote it, but just went with it. You're right of course. Duh..

    As a reformed banker I really like the CapOne ad. However, talk about the pot calling the kettle black! They have some of the highest interest rates around.

    Where there's a Will...

    That's a pretty good start. But unless that's all you have, a will would be a good idea. Depending on what state you are in, a trust would be a better one. We see lawyers who apparently charge by the pound. They have seminars at hotel conference rooms on weekends to sell their "Packages". Others understand the difference between simple and simplistic. Simple is good, simplistic is not. A trust should be as complicated as it needs to be to effect the desired goals. I made my Mom put her minerals in a trust that should run 100 years or more (Statute of limitations). The point was to have a single point of contact for management, leases, etc. When mineral interests get divided into tiny factional interests they become so burdensome the oil companies just wont pursue leasing it. It would have been simpler not to do it, but that would have been a mistake. It's already chump change as it is.

    Where there's a Will...

    Texas - https://statutes.capitol.texas.gov/Docs/ES/htm/ES.257.htm Very limited, no debts and no reason other than the passage of title to do an administration. I'm a little out of my depth here. I'm a former trust officer, not an atty. (But I did sleep in a Holiday Inn once...)

    Where there's a Will...

    There is a legal remedy called "Muniment of Title" that allows for an unprobated will to be filed in the property records as evidence of ownership transfer. At least in Texas. It's far from ideal and you still have to get the judge to declare the will to be valid, but if you screw up and leave a probate asset behind, it CAN avoid having to do a full estate administration.

    Country Music

    This thread started with Townes Van Zandt. For those that dislike that "Nashville Sound", I get it. Even though I do like some of it. Townes was an iconoclast and definitely didn't fit the "Country Music" mold. His best friend was Guy Clark, who could flat out write. He was one of the original "outlaws". I heard this Guy Clark song recently in a small venue in San Antonio and I love the way Jack Ingram performs it. Trust me, it's worth a listen... "...I got a pretty good friend Who' seen me at my worst He can't tell if I'm a blessing Or a curse But he always shows up When the chips are down That' the kind of stuff, I like to be around"
