Actually it is 109 before wiercone gets a WV Toaster. Don't give the toasters away to soon, they are expensive.

Re: Officially Dead?

Interesting event. Just checked in at the Holiday Inn Express and parked my vehicle. Next vehicle over is from Wylie. Belongs to North Texas Customs. They do custom paint jobs on vehicles, etc. How is that for a coincidence?

Re: Cheesesteak House

I noticed got a sales permit this week so I searched for more info. They have a Yelp page but it doesn't have any info on it yet. Looks like they have locations in Dallas and Garland. It will be downtown on Ballard between La Joya and the Donut place, the space that used to be a vape shop. Love me ...

Re: I'm still around

Weirdone, You are much too young to have retired. Glad to say you are staying active. What are you studying? I think of you often since that concrete address plaque you gave me is sitting by the tree in my backyard. Good job in getting the garage cleaned out. I haven't got that done in over twenty y...

The dogs were inside and one went ballistic---the other was like me and froze.

Have you been aware of such in the Wylie area?
Didn't they catch one in Murphy (or was it Sachse) a few years back?

Re: Incompetence

I wish it was limited to minimum wage workers but it, sadly, isn't. Today a dear friend went for her chemo treatment. Regimen is a blood draw (through the port), one bag of a chemical which takes approximately two hours to infuse, second bag of a different chemical which takes approximately 90 minut...

Incompetence

This isn't so much a specific rant but an old man's rant about today's world. It seems that the world today is full of incompetence. And a lot of it is at pretty simple levels. I have long believed that good customer service is a thing of the past. Here are a couple of quick, simple, examples. If I ...

Re: What's taking so long next to Racetrac Murphy (Jersey Mi

Speaking of Honeybaked Ham, I bought both a ham and a turkey for last Thanksgiving and was very disappointed in both of them. I have had better hams from Sams. I was doubly disappointed because in the past I have enjoyed their products but I won't spend that kind of money on them in the future.

Re: Chick-fil-A

Here is a video of one of the first locations opening in Michigan a couple months ago. It happened to be close to where I grew up. It was almost equivalent to when In-n-Out opened in Allen https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IAG5MRSTiKE WOW! I like Chick-fil-A alright. I like In-n-Out alright. But neit...

Re: Good Neighbor Brews

I have heard that breweries aren't allowed to prepare/serve food but you are allowed to bring your own or have someone cater there. I know that's what Tupps in McKinney and Nine Band in Allen also do. Interesting. Must be the difference in state laws. There are two tiers of licenses in Texas. Here ...

Re: Chick-fil-A

maybe this will take some pressure off the Murphy location. that place is packed all the time and I've skipped going there many times because of the long line. Very true, same here. I have noticed, as I travel, that Chick-fil-A is almost always packed regardless of where it is located. Often Carol ...

Re: Meteor Burger To Go

I think my son has had that same issue with them early last year. Too bad they can't keep up. I really like their greasy burgers and frys, reminds me of when I was a kid. But, unfortunately, they don't meet my current diet.

Re: Is There Anybody in There? Just Nod if You Can Hear Me.

It's nice to see the WV is still kickin'. Recently I was trying to recall where I had read something and it dawned on me it was likely here -- only it was back in '09 shortly after I moved here. Kind of funny to read some of my thoughts 8/9 years later. I remember when Facebook took over the world ...

The program is seems to only post on the first topic thread. I am glad it is not able to see beyond that thread. This is true with slight exceptions.
