I don't want to turn this into a rant against women, just asked Jimmy how Ace was doing, and VV looks like our sorta gal, same with bad girl, (by the way time to post a hi its bad girl) and obviously as the gals are in the minority around here i don't want to pick on them..

That being said......

Ok so how do i say this politely, and as a gentleman, ... hmm.. as our resident cross wearer im sorta in a bind here.. Hey.. Great,.. is that Lyle walking in the door..

"Lyle can i bend your ear for a min".. "i need a positive way to describe the female genders personality issues buddy"..

YEP!! SURE CAAN GREG_________________THIER ALL FUXKED UP!!... GET ME A BEER!

So as i was saying, thiers just differences between "that other gender" and us.. Lord knows we love them, and in a lot of important ways like caring, and patience they have a step and a half on most of us..That being said there are a few ways that WOW or they diffrent..

Lets say for example you have a task to do around the home.. a guy says ok i have to put up the tree.. So he goes and gets said tree and puts it up.. NOPE.. the gal and guy talk about where that trees going to go for 30 or 40 min.. Then after talking about changing the color of the wall WHCIH I JUST PAINTED LAST YEAR !!! .. ... sigh... yep guess this "might" be the story of putting up the Christmas tree this year..

to save us all any embarrassment lets just call that other gender TOGs from now on.. HEY! Pretty cool to my knowledge i just made up a word.. If it's ever been used before im not aware of it, and think i'll claim ownership.. sorta like it.. TOGs.. yep good ring, now back to the story..

So have you ever noticed that when your at the end of your limits physically and mentally the resident tog will AT THE VERY SECOND that you have maxed out.. say "hey i know what we have to do now"...

I've also noticed an amazing ability that togs have to be just a tad better at what ever it is your doing than you are.. for example (Schuy is that eg or ie) anyway since Schuylers trying to start Gulf War 28 or something will get back to the ability to be better at what ever the task is.. Lets just say that, Oh lets see... a random example lets say your changing your tire (Highway 89 mile post 64) ((just past Martinez wash)) just hypothetical of course..

So you have been changing tires for the last 50 years.. Lets say as an example that you were a jet mechanic in the Navy, and had spent a life time wrenching motorcycles and had every Snap-on socket in 1/4,1/2, and 3/4 drive.. this does not matter to a tog cause.. you DON'T HAVE A CLUE how tight to make that wheel nut.. Nope .. Ever hear a "i don't think thats tight enough". Let's say your working on a project like oh... trying to think of a completely random event ..Aug 18th last year 3:28 pm putting the son-n-laws water heater in.. "don't ya think thats to tight" cause togs just know that what ever your doing is wrong..

Course sometimes you get lucky and marry the love of your life, in which case the correct tog answer is .. You betcha baby.. ok troops, rants over.. feel 100% better.. time to go hug the tog.

Greg, I gave up trying to figure out TOG's along time ago. (I like the new word by the way). That's why I gave up trying and instead adopted a new policy of "yes dear", "of course dear" and "what would I do without you". Where men tend to see a problem and just figure out the simplest most direct way of fixing it, TOG's seem to be more detail orientated. They give a shit about things like the color of the curtains, wheter said curtains match the couch, having "pretty" bars of soap on the sink. Where me as a man, I"m happy just to have a couch that's comfortable, anything to just cover up the window when needed and any old bar of soap will do. And in the end, women, (disclaimer...SOME women), can make our lives all the much more better for all their attention to detail. Otherwise we men would probably still be content to live in caves, as long as that cave had cable television and a refrigerator in it. The wrong woman can break you and the right woman can make you.

And what in the world is the whole deal with scent... For the life of me i can't figure out why this is a billion dollar a year industry.. things either smell good.. bacon, coffee, pine trees.. or bad, shit, armpits, hmmm.. ok .. shit again.. anyway its a yep or nope on that puppy, and (i just changed from the w word) togs turn that into a HUGE deal, im lucky with mine in this area..

Hamps gona kid me as my spell checks busted, i better hat up, and get stuff done before my tog gets home..

Pard .. See your on buddy, was just going to tell brad to tell you hi, and it was beer 30 here in az.. See ya all later.. bunch o stuff to do before Gloria gets home.. sure hope i do it right..

Pretty cool for a an old broke dick huh?... Addendum.. Schuy will get back (whens he due?) and tell me its all wrong.. and probably is but still sounds cool, so addendum it is.. and now for the Addendum.. i think there supposed to be numbered like Addendum 1 or A or something like that so to make this professional looking here goes..

Addendum A
Sub topic I: Why Togs bring up other projects when your maxed out on the current one..

Been thinking about this (yep i don't have a lot to think about) and think its because they never helped when they were a kid..Remember when you were a kid, and had all sorts of energy, and helping Dad with something..You learned REAL quick when somebody was maxed out to keep your mouth shut.. Thinking togs didn't get the benefit of those life lessons..

Addendum A
Sub topic II: Spell check was busted yesterday, so i didn't have a chance to use it on the post, sorry about that.. all most re broke it today fixing post, but least fixed..

When I have had that problem with a TOG I just stay quiet and wait. When they ask again if it tight enough or if it's too tight I just quietly hand them the wrench, screwdriver, etc... and let them do it. It's real fun at the range when they don't want to start shooting with a 22 but shoot the 44mag youi have one handed like they do in the movies that is when I really feel better

If you carry a gun, people call you paranoid. Nonsense! If you have a gun, what do you have to be paranoid about?

Yep, my ex TOG

was impossible like that, looking forward to the next project before the current one had turned a wheel, all the while not lifting a finger to further said current project, after 7 years of that maybe thats why I get shit done so fast anymore.....My current TOG is not like that at all, yesterday she came out to the garage every so often and swept and vacuumed up the sawdust for me which I really appreciated at the end of the day when my back was sore.

First TOG

Always asked me when it was time to do our projects as I was always off helping a neighbor with their projects. Just the way I was raised. Second TOG would help but would get mad at me when I would catch a run in the paint where she was painting. Can't tell you the number of "discussions" that led to... No TOG now so life is quiet but a little lonely at times. BTW I always qualify the first TOG as the CAB - Crazy Ass Bitch.

Ahh manu, I led

the lonely (read quiet) life for 9 years, didn't mind it a bit, kind of miss it every once in a while.........My second TOG was CAB and a TDC ( guess what that means)....LOL!

I have had a few "friends" but they all want to develop into more than I can/want to give. As a gentleman i am straight forward from the get go so there will be no misunderstanding. TOG's have a hard time with that. I t does give me more time with my boy and my dog likes me as long as I feed him everyday.

of 'friends' that all ended the same way as you describe. I was not secretive of my attitude that hey, you have your home and I have mine, we enjoy each others company and that should be enough........Well, it wasn't enough. I was never afraid of commitment, just getting burned.

Hamp, maybe that is

a better way to describe it. I am done raising kids as well. My boy is almost 15 and I am done.

That is a little different. I don't want to get married and raise someone else's kids again. I will always be there for my son. I could not have asked for better parents and I only hope to be like them.

Sorry for you bud, but on another levil, i sorta envy you.. We're so far away from the Girls that we only see the G-kids about once a month, and we feel like were missing a lot.. I think thats going to change ASAP, the homes on the market after the holidays.. HATE the city, but pretty sure this is the right move for us..

Hamp, looks like you and Manu..(say that fast and it gets pretty funny) both have had the same issues with women, and think we all get the C part..C class TOGs ha ha. the worst of the worst.. Better stop this, i have a feeling we could all do some venting, and not fair to the great gals we have on now.. past is past stuff..

I was lucky in the parent dept as well guys. Manu i don't think there's a better compliment than the one you gave your folks and i can say the same thing.. Makes you feel sorta guilty some times for the shit you pulled (ok me anyway) when young, but im sure they appreciate the compliment now..

snip, snip

First thing I did after the first disintegrated was get the nuts cut. I'm with ya Hamp - I can always get away from the screaming if they're not mine. What are you smokin today Greg? Or are you still weary from the TOG episode? I actually spelled it wrong. It should be mano which is Hawiian for shark but goofed up. Kinda glad now - can just imagine the comments about becoming a man in 2014.

That is one of the best bottled BBQ sauces I have had. They sell it at Bass Pro Shops I think.

One of my "friends" was 48 with a 4yo. She couldn't understand why I didn't want to stop by her place.
