• Dancing, OS's, & Pinball

    Barry,

    Sounds like the latter part of John Michael Montgomery's
    YouTube video of his hit "SOLD". And, that woman "who he put a
    bid on", was sure pretty...and boy, could she dance and clog!! :)

    She could!

    All I could think of was the line from "Silver Streak" when Richard
    Pryor saw Gene Wilder's girlfriend, Jill Clayburgh..."Have Mercy!!" <G>.

    More like hanging around Windows!

    Well, considering I never had a fetish for penguins. <G>

    No telling how many quarters I spent in pinball machines over
    the years.

    Too bad as they took tokens!

    I liked the ones that offered 5 plays for a dollar...if you used
    a Susan B. Anthony dollar...which looked very much like a quarter.

    Hi Daryl!

    More like hanging around Windows!
    Well, considering I never had a fetish for penguins. <G>

    But they're cute and useful! And just don't get too involved with them!

    Which was probably one of the reasons why that coin never took off the American public. Plus I think some of the cash register tills didn't
    have the 'extra' holder -- same for the $2 bill. Though I think it was
    more the mindset -- a dollar coin?? No way!

    The European Union uses E1 and E2 coins, their bills start at E5. Sure,
    takes a little used to -- like about a day or two. My problem was more
    I wasn't used to their coinage so like here if I'm looking for a 10
    piece I'm looking for a 'dime', really looking for a small thin silver
    disk. There haven't learned that shortcut yet so <look> E.05? Nope,
    E.20, Nope....

    I have a $2 bill that my late father signed...I keep in in a frame,
    along with an ad I took out in the paper a year after his death. I have
    a similar deal for my late wife.
