My Dear Campers,

It will probably be a few days before I can post again.  2020 seems to be the year that just keeps on giving.  On Monday we found out that Mrs. Dragon’s dear father passed away and is now back with his darling wife.  Although he lived a long full life, it was unexpected.  He went very gently in his sleep and I would have wanted nothing less for a wonderful father, grandfather, and great-grandfather.  He was never a father-in-law to me, but was always Dad and more importantly, he was my friend. 

So, my apologies to those of you who will be let down by the absence of Dragon Laffs.  I understand, truly I do and I will get back to you as soon as I can.  Because believe me when I tell you that this is as much for me, if not more so, than it is for you, but for now, the support of my dear wife comes first.

Love to you all.

Good Morning Campers,

My second base was Spangdahlem AB, Germany where I had the time of my life.  I was assigned to the gun shop where as a young airman I was given lots of work to do and my off time was spent in one of the most beautiful places in the world.

There aren’t many good pictures of the M61a1 nose gun system left on line any more…at least not many that I could find.  Here’s one:

m61a1

The whole thing fit up inside the nose of the F-4E model Phantom II fighter jet.  It could also carry the SUU-23 20mm Gun Pod on the centerline weapons pylon and here’s a display picture of what the SUU-23 looks like:

Suu-23

So yeah, it was a pretty cool gig.

And now it’s time to move on to the laughter…don’t you think?

Yeah, I do too.

Good Plan …

And speaking of plans … the old range was finally, just now, picked up!!!!  Yeah.  It is 1:30 Saturday afternoon … if you’re wondering … and finally, after about 7 weeks and much stress and money and to do, our home is finally somewhat back to normal.  Thank you all for the help and assistance and support that you guys have given us over this time.

Here’s a fast note and story from Joe L in NJ:

Impish,

There is a lot of history in Cape May County, the real South Jersey.

During the revolutionary war

there were many farms along the coast. The British would anchor off shore and come to the beaches with long boats. They would raid the local farms and take whatever they could carry.

The farmers weren’t happy about these raids and devised a unique warning system.

At dusk they would tie their poultry to stakes on the highest dunes along the beach. When the raiders approached, the poultry would make a very loud racket and warn the farmers. Very effective.

And that is where we get the term:

‘Chicken Catch a Tory.’

…Joe in Beesley’s Point

Thanks (?) Joe.

2471

Some noise?  I heard some noise?  That’s a fucking war zone!

2472

After seeing the last picture, I’m not sure I want to even think about it.

I’m not buying a 2021 planner until I see a trailer.

I think one of the most amazing displays of democracy in history is that one thousand islands managed to come together and agree on a single dressing.

2474

Is this what we have to look forward to in 2021?!

2475

Oh please!  Don’t be such pussies!  It’s what they were born and raised for!

I wouldn’t do anything for a Klondike Bar … But I’d do some shady shit for some whiskey and good tacos.

Good Morning Campers,

The above picture was from George AFB in California at about the same time that I was there in the late 70s, best as I can tell.  The last active unit of the old F-105 403Thunderchiefs in the old Wild Weasel configuration.  Nicknamed the Thud it was an awesome old jet.  Sadly, we lost an awful lot of them while I was stationed out there in the Mojave desert.  Which kind of inspired it’s inspirational nickname.  Rumor has404 it, it was named after Chief Thunderthud from the Howdy Doody cartoon show.  It was a triple threat aircraft.  It could bomb you, strafe you with it’s 20mm gun, or it call fall on you.  We proved that quite well while I was stationed there.  We dropped quite a few of them into the Mojave Desert sand while I was there.  But, by the late 70s those girls were well over 20 years old by then.  But, fast loud and proud they were.  The pilots that flew them loved them.

After about thirty seconds of fondling she began to lose patience and said, “Come one, what day was I born?”

I said, “Yesterday.”

Bozo News Hawk award goes out today to Larry Kent of Tyler, Texas, who found this bozo story on the Associated Press wire and passed it on to us. From Mesa, Arizona come bozos John Largo,16, and Lee Burner, 17, who went to the local Wal-Mart and purchased a couple of strobe lights, red and blue in color. The bozos thought it would be fun to place the lights on top of their car and see if they could fool any other motorists into pulling over, thinking them to be police. Sure enough, the first car they tried the trick on pulled over. One problem–they pulled over an off duty police officer who arrested them for impersonating an officer and reckless driving.

Okay, can you all say it with me …

Bozo criminal for today comes from Boise, Idaho, where Harlan Collinsworth called the police to his house to report a number of things that had been stolen in a break-in. The bozo told police the thieves had taken a VCR, a bong and a marijuana pipe– but, he pointed out proudly, the thieves had missed a film canister full of marijuana. The cops asked the bozo to show them the canister full of dope and when he did, the police arrested the bozo for drug possession.

Can everyone repeat … ah never mind.  You say to yourself, how friggin’ stupid can they get and it’s like they’re taking it as a personal challenge.

(Another word that ends in MT) (Dreamt) (Besides Dreamt) (I don’t think there are any besides Dreamt) (That’s what I said) (No you didn’t) (Yes I did) (No you didn’t) (I’m not doing this) (See, I win) (That’s not what …) (Exemt) (There’s a “P” in it) (There’s no “P” in it, then it would be Pit) (No, there’s a “P” in Exempt) (Pexemt?  That’s not even a word.  Dude, just admit you don’t have a fucking clue what you are even talking about, do you?)  (Nope.  Not anymore)

Bozo criminals for this morning come from Larch Barrens, Maryland where police interrupted a robbery in progress at a local grocery store. The bozos had broken in and were hard at work trying to get into the safe when police arrived. It would have been a long time before the bozos got into the safe with the tool they were using. They had stolen a lazer tag gun from a local amusement center and, thinking the gun was an actual laser, they were shining the light on the safe, waiting for the laser to cut through the metal and open the safe.

Can you say it with me?

Customer Service?  You can’t even fucking spell customer service!

Couple more than I need to get ready to call it a night.

Good Morning Campers

Good Morning Campers,

As I’m writing this, I’m waiting for the delivery drivers to arrive to bring our range and to finally put our cave back together again after almost two months after the lightning EMP that put such a huge crimp in our summer.  Got a recorded call last night that said they would be here 400bbetween 8 am and noon today.  I guess Lowes has changed their delivery service.  So, we got our refrigerator under the old contract and the range under the new one.  And I already told you how pleased we were with the guys who delivered the fridge … so far I’m not happy with the range service.  A recorded call is not very personable.  Giving me a 4 hour window instead of a two hour one.  And then not even calling me at a decent hour.  I got the call at like 830 last night.  To me, that’s a bit late to be making calls to schedule deliveries.  But, we’ll see how it goes.

In the mean time, let’s get on with the laughter, shall we?

Thanks to Bozo News Hawk Gordon Galbraith for sending in today’s report. From Robbinsdale, Minnesota comes the story of bozo Paul Harris who walked into a pawn shop with several power tools he had just stolen and asked for cash for them. The man behind the counter took a look at the tools and thought, “These are pretty nice. I’ve got one just like that…and that…and that!” Finally it dawned on him-he was looking at his own tools. The bozo had broken into the pawnbroker’s house, stolen his tools, and, as fate would have it, brought those tools to his shop to pawn them. The pawnbroker called the cops who detained our bozo on a previous warrant while he hurried home to confirm that those were indeed his tools. They were. The bozo was arrested

Okay, so what are the odds?

Well, 10 am and still no range.  I could’ve slept in this morning … gotten a couple of hours of work in at the job, not wasted leave time … but then again, I did get to spend the time with you guys and I have had a chance to laugh quite a bit.  But right now it’s time to stretch the legs, get some more go juice and then if I still haven’t heard anything thing, I guess I’ll come back and keep laughing with my favorite campers.

A businessman boarded a plane to find, sitting next to him, an elegant woman wearing the largest, most stunning diamond ring he had ever seen.  He asked her about it.

“This is the Masterson diamond,” she said.  “It is beautiful, but there is a terrible curse that goes with it.”

“What’s the curse?” the man asked.

“Mr. Masterson.”

2397

2398

What a cluster fuck!  Like six monkeys fucking a football.  So the Range showed up at about 1230, I showed the guys the old range that they needed to take away and the first question they asked was, “Is it disconnected?” and I said, “No. You guys said you couldn’t hook up the new range because it’s gas and the whole liability thing, but no one said anything about not being able to disconnect the old range.”

“We can’t disconnect the old range.  We don’t even have any tools.”

Long story short, I didn’t have a wrench big enough to disconnect the old range.  So the guys dropped the new range and took off.  I called the appliance guy that I was going to have hook up the new range and asked him to come over and disconnect the old range and hook up the new range, but now the old range is still sitting in my dining room.  And I’ve been playing Jolly-fuck-around trying to get them to come and pick it up (today is now Wednesday).

They wouldn’t return my call last night.  They haven’t returned my call this morning.  I spoke with the manager this morning and he said that I am scheduled to be picked up today and they would call me with a time … that was three hours ago.  I really like the products, but the delivery service sucks.

So, Mrs. Dragon and I ran out early this morning, leaving Izzy Dragon at home in case they showed up, and got our blood draws out of the way and now they can go and do what they need to do while I wait on them to pick up the old range.  And I’ll bet dollars to donuts that it’s not until late this afternoon or this evening before they show.

So, let’s get back to the issue before I get even more pissed off than I already am.

Oh my … okay, and with that, I think I have to call it an issue.  Still waiting for the pick up guys.  I guess you’ll find out on Saturday how it all works out.  Until then, keep smiling and keep loving each other.

Cheers,

Good Morning Campers,

Welcome to Monday.  It’s got to be the very worst day of the week.  I am really beginning to hate Mondays.  They come around way too quickly 400aafter Fridays.  Especially on weekends when I have to teach class…like this one.  And what a class it was.  A whole class of new people, never having had the class before.  Quite interesting.  And long.

So, that was Saturday.  I’ll tell you about Sunday when it happens.  And Tuesday my new Range is supposed to be here, so there’s that….

Between now and then …

When I was about 9 years old, I accompanied my father to the funeral of a friend of his, someone who I didn’t even know.

When we got there, I stayed in a corner waiting for the time to pass.

Then a man approached me and said, “Enjoy life son, be happy because time flies.  Look at me now, I didn’t enjoy it.”

Then he passed his hand over my head and left.

My father, before leaving, forced me to say goodbye to the dead person.  When I looked in the coffin, I was horrified to see that the man in the coffin was the same man who had spoken to me!

I was so traumatized I couldn’t sleep properly.  I had terrible nightmares.  I was terrified of being alone.  I couldn’t sleep without a night light for many years.

I saw many psychologists, endured much turmoil throughout my adolescent years.  It got better as I aged, but I would still occasionally wake up screaming in fear.

Years later, I discovered something incredible that changed my life.

The dead bastard had a twin.

As I’ve grown older, I’ve learned that pleasing everyone is impossible, but pissing everyone off is a piece of cake.

Paddy said to Mick:  “My wife left me last week, she said she was going for milk and never came back.”

Mick says:  “Oh Paddy, how are you coping?”

Paddy:  “Not bad.  I’ve been using some of that powdered stuff.”

Listen To Your Lawyer
Taylor was desperate for business, and was happy to be appointed by the court to defend an indigent defendant. The judge ordered Taylor,”You are to confer with the defendant in the hallway, and give him the best legal advice you can.”
After a time, Taylor re-entered the courtroom alone. When the judge asked where the defendant had gone, Taylor replied, “You asked me to give him good advice. I found out that he was so guilty, so I told him to split.”

Did You Know:  (Well, this has been a long time …)  (Yeah, well shut up and listen)  (Wow, attitude …)  The North Star is between 323 and 521 light-years away from earth, meaning the light we see from the star was emitted sometime between 1499 and 1697.  (Okay, so that was pretty cool)  (Yes it was, now back off.)  (Wow, dude …what the hell?  We need to talk.)  (Hey, I get paid by the “Did You Know” and they’ve been few and far between.  I’ve got kids to feed and my mother-in-law has been living with us since this whole COVID thing has started up and … ) (Yeah, yeah, I get it.  I’ll talk to the editor.  We’ll get it worked out)

My generation’s zombies didn’t run.  They walked.  Uphill.  In the snow.  They ate what brains they could find and they liked it.

Yeah, I’m working my way up to that level right now.  Can’t cross my legs yet.

Got an email from Joe L. in Beesley’s Point, NJ.  It came in at 3:26 am on Saturday morning and he explains why …

Impish,

Just finished reading the latest issue at 3am.

My wife couldn’t find her car keys at 1:15am when she finished work in Ocean City, NJ. I had to shake the cobwebs and bring her my key. OC is a 20 minute ride from Beesley’s Point. Slow going thanks to the 25mph speed limit and traffic light.

But once I returned home I was wide awake. Seeing your new issue gave me a reason to stay up awhile and not attempt to fall back to sleep.

Bummer……Now I won’t have anything good to read tomorrow. Oh well, I can read this issue again.

Thanks for entertaining me in the middle of the night.

Wait….that doesn’t sound quite right.

…Joe in Beesley’s Point

———————————

Beesley’s Point is so small we don’t have a town drunk. We have to take turns.

Joe, since we are 747 miles and/or 10 hours and 50 minutes away from each other, I don’t mind if you say I entertained you in the middle of the night.  Yeah, I looked it up on Google maps.  I noticed you said traffic light – singular – is there only the one?  And I thought I lived in a small town.  But, I’m glad I could entertain you…middle of the night or not.

2357

I’d almost rather have those kinds of directions than the kind you get around here.  There’s a lot of people that have been here for generations and you things like, “You gotta turn left where the old Smith farm burned down in the 50s”

Bozo criminal for today comes from Bound Brook, New Jersey where bozo Brendan Snider had a rather busy day when he broke into a residence early the other morning. First he went into the kitchen and cooked himself some sausages. He then ransacked a downstairs bedroom, finding a pair of jeans he liked and putting them on. He then went out into the backyard and lit the grill to cook a couple of steaks he had found in the refrigerator. While the grill was warming up he went upstairs and awoke the family’s daughter while he was rummaging around her bedroom. He apologized for waking her, introduced himself and locked himself in the bathroom where he proceeded to take a shower. The daughter then awoke her parents who confronted our bozo behind the locked bathroom door. The bozo replied, “I’m taking a shower. I’ll be out in a few minutes.” The cops were waiting when he finished his shower.

Would it surprise you if I said it doesn’t surprise me to hear he’s from NJ?

Well, let’s go read some comments before we run out of time, shall we?

Regarding your commissary story.. saw that in the Commissary in Newport RI when I was in OCS. Woman barged in to the front of the line next to the one I was in, with “I’m Mrs. LT So-and-So”. Middle aged woman from two lines over came up, said to her “I’m not ‘Mrs Admiral Johnson’, I’m just Mrs. Johnson. My husband Admiral Johnson and I will see you and your husband for dinner tonight at . Eight o’clock, don’t be late.” Then she walked back to her grocery cart. Mrs. LT So-and-So’s face went pale. Then she moved to the back of the line. I would loved to have been a fly on the wall at that dinner.

You and me both Ed!  Hell, I’d have paid good money to wait the table and served the dinner!

Stephanie

Please express my prayers to Paul. I cannot imagine being without my other half.
In regard to census, yes dome of the questions are idiotic, but sadly are many people. Because of those who claim there’s more than 2 sexes, they must ask.
Please be nice. Stan is one of the workers.

I told Paul that all of us express our deepest condolences.  He said that Dragon Laffs was one of the things that Ginny missed doing and reading the most.

LOL!  We’ll all be nice to Stan if he shows up at the door, but other than that …

Seems lots of people had stories about or felt strongly about my commissary story…

Leah D.

At Fort Hood, she didn’t crowd in, but loudly proclaimed that being an officer’s wife, she shouldn’t have to wait in lines. I was ahead of her, turned, said “You’re an officer’s wife?” Saluted her and turned back around.

Dave

The window sticker – You will address me by my husband’s rank.
That would be . . . second class!

That is one thing with working with the Reserves, even on a full-time basis, I don’t interact with the spouses much, but when I do, they seem to be a bit … tightened up, maybe that’s the right way to put it.  They have their shit together.

Maggie

Impish,
A great issue!! It was sad to read about Ginny, I am sure she will be greatly missed.
I hope that you and Mrs Dragon and Izzy are all doing well and staying safe.
Maggie

Thanks Maggie.  We are doing okay.  Can’t complain.  Only cause it doesn’t do a damn bit of good, anyway.  Thanks for saying nice things about the issue, and for asking about us.  And yeah, Ginny will be missed.

Leah D.

WOW! This issue was like an anniversary celebratory one! So Round, So Firm, So Fully Packed!

Leah, I feel sexy now!  Dang girl.  Chicka wow-wow!

An American success story .

Every morning, the CEO of a large bank in Manhattan walks to the corner where a shoe shine is always located.  He sits on the couch, examines the Wall Street Journal, and the shoe shine gives his shoes a shiny, excellent look.  One morning the shoeshine asks the Executive Director: – What do you think about the situation in the stock market? The Director asks in turn arrogantly:  – Why are you so interested in that – that topic?

“I have a million dollars in your bank,” the shoeshine says, “and I’m considering investing some of the money in the capital market.”

– What is your name?  –Asks the Director.

– John H. Smith.

The Director arrives at the bank and asks the Manager – Do we have a client named John H. Smith ?

– Certainly –answers the Customer Service Manager–, he is a highly esteemed customer.  He has a million dollars in his account.

The Director comes out, approaches the shoeshine, and says:  – Mr. Smith, I ask you this coming Monday to be the guest of honor at our board meeting and tell us the story of your life.  I am sure we will have something to learn from you.

At the board meeting, the Executive Director introduces him to the board members:

– We all know Mr. Smith, who makes our shoes shine in the corner;  But Mr. Smith is also our esteemed customer with a million dollars in his account.  I invited him to tell us the story of his life.  I am sure we can learn from him.

Mr. Smith began his story:- I came to this country fifty years ago as a young immigrant from Europe with an unpronounceable name.  I got off the ship without a penny.  The first thing I did was change my name to Smith.  I was hungry and exhausted.  I started wandering around looking for a job but to no avail.  Suddenly I found a coin on the sidewalk.  I bought an apple.  I had two options: eat the apple and quench my hunger or start a business.  I sold the apple for two dollars and bought two apples with the money.  I also sold them and continued in business.  When I started accumulating dollars, I was able to buy a set of used brushes and shoe polish and started polishing shoes.  I didn’t spend a penny on entertainment or clothing, I just bought bread and some cheese to survive.  I saved penny by penny and after a while, I bought a new set of shoe brushes and ointments in different shades and expanded my clientele.  I lived like a monk and saved penny by penny.  After a while I was able to buy an armchair so that my clients could sit comfortably while cleaning their shoes, and that brought me more clients.  I did not spend a penny on the joys of life.  I kept saving every penny.  A few years ago, when the previous shoe shine on the corner decided to retire, I had already saved enough money to buy his shoeshine location at this great place.

Finally, three months ago, my sister, who was a prostitute in Chicago, passed away and left me a million dollars.

Mom:  If a stranger came up to you and said, “I’m your mom’s friend, she told me to pick you up.” What would you say?

Kid:  I’d say, “You’re lying.  My mom has no friends.”

Mom:  Not where I was going, but Ok.
