    You’re right, Varnes….I was idling….It’s pretty exhausting, coming up with this stuff….Tires me out, so I had to take a little brake.

    Thanks for steering me in the right direction.

    Meanwhile… he threw Ben??? A $100 bill in the fountain?

    That WOULD be criminal.

    If you can’t do the time, dime, don’t do the crime.

    If money is involved, your best friend’ll drop a dime on you …don’t look for change there.

    (It’s a quarter to two, and I’m running out of gas here….)

    Forgot to say (can you believe there’s anything I didn’t say?)….

    @SunflowerGirl…. from yesterday…Actually, I admit…. in the strip, AFAIK, it wasn’t the “Win one for the Gipper” speech…Cos I don’t think there’s really much of a speech…except for that one line from the movie, which I did twist, in my comment, cos it made me think of that.

    Bruno,I was parked on an Illinois drag strip’s hard-packed dirt parking lot back in the 60’s. I let the clutch out when leaving and the tires squealed like crazy. Extended no rain conditions and the dirt was like pavement. I’ve never noticed it again B/4 or since. Oddities!!!!

    OK, Franklin D Roosevelt (the dime) threw Ben Franklin ($100 bill) in the fountain so he wouldn’t get thrown in himself. But where does the car come in? “I cannot tell a lie” is Washington ($1 bill)?
