Perhaps with a variation tacked onto it - as someone beat you to that one.

I saw a wonderful photo yesterday of the Blue-Footed Booby and thought that would be a delightful name. Just a suggestion. But it may not impart the level of dignity you deserve or wish to portray.

Regal Beagle? [No members found with that name. From the café name in "Three's Company".]

You can search any name of interest in the directory above, just left of the search feature.

Hi Keebler
I didn't mean the name on here. Time Warner cable has a internet service called roadrunner.

It is a faster internet company.

I pay $19.95 a month for a .072 of a megabite Roadrunner has a 2 megabite connection for $14.95 a month. Over twice as fast.

Glad I could make you laugh - I love words that have so many varied meanings. But, seriously, it's quite a lovely bird that makes quite a fashion splash. If I had feet like that, I'd never want to wear shoes.

Oh, internet. I'm a very sheltered soul. Never heard of it - but then with no regular TV access & no cable, I see very few commercials.

Guess you don't need a new name, then, eh? Oh, well. We could've had a lot more fun.

I thought MADDOG was just trying to channel our old friend RoadRunner!

Why do (blue-footed) boobies have blue feet? Short answer: carotenoid pigments.

So, then, "why not orange?" I wonder.

As this question is addressed by the Galapagos Conservation folks, they are thrilled to offer additional insights from "number of ways depending on the angle at which you approach it."

Here's your conversation starter for your next cocktail party:

Hi Don
I still have the big Dodge Cummins diesel 4x4.

I rebuilt the trans for the third time. I had it done one time. They screwed it up.

I was getting bad rebuilt torque convertors. but the trans shop screwed it up on their own.

It now has 6 pinion gears,a billet torque converter,billet servo,billet pump stator, new input shaft,kevlar band,new overdrive piston housing,all seals are new ,red clutches,new overdrive piston,valve body upgrades,new shift solinoids,and a spin on secondary filter.

I think I kicked its butt.

Just Don- Possibly harder to imagine than Maddog driving a Plymouth Roadrunner- may be me driving one?

That was the 1st car I bought. A brand new 1969 - red with black racing stripes- 440/4 on the floor. Did 1/4 mile in under 14 seconds. Chrome wheels, nice manifold too- and I believe the tires had red stripes instead of white walls (?). I think you would have liked it.

The first time my sister drove it she accidently plowed down a neighbors mailbox- too much power. She didn't drive it after that.

It was a beauty, for sure. Too much fun!!

Oh, and at the same time I was helping the boys change out an engine from a 55 Chevy Bel Air to give it more power- my all time favorite car. Doing that work gave me the basics for working on my own cars, saving me lots of money later on.

Forget this electronic/computer everything car they make now. Give me a mopar.

Very cool, Tincup! My husband wanted a Roadrunner and his dad bought him a Duster instead. He wasn't too happy about that!! [Big Grin]

We had a '55 Bel Air when I was a kid. I really loved that car!

WOW! The race car we played with going to local tracks was a Duster! Like your hubby- I liked my Roadrunner better, but wasn't willing to let them use it on the track.

What color was your Bel Air? I know I will melt when I hear, no matter the color. THAT is my car.

My brother in law had a black 69 roadrunner 383 magnum with real working hood scoops. It had a 5.13 positrack rear end.

Talk about a hole shot.

I had a 69 GTO that flew.

Cars were more fun back then.

I had a 68 firebird with a olds engine in it.

Great pic Just Don! Thanks for sharing it!

Maddog- I agree with you on the ``fun`` of the muscle cars compared to today.

The late Pete Seeger (who also fought a battle with Lyme disease) summed up how things were changing very nicely in this song, which I`ve always been fond of. It does`t specify cars, but this posting about cars made me think about this song.

Who remembers this song?

Nice car (roadrunner)! Positrack was pretty new back then, wasn`t it?

GTOs were hot when you had yours. Beautiful cars! And it makes me laugh remembering how fast they were. Blow you off the road fast!

[Big Grin]

And the sad part- I traded in the Roadrunner for a brand new off the showroom floor Firebird Formula 400, 4 on the floor, really sharp car (yeah- I was in love and gave it all up back then).

BUT... when I picked it up it I drove it across the street to the inspection station so I could go get tags- literally across the street from the dealer- and it failed inspection. Brand new car!!! Four different problems! I should have driven right straight back to the dealer, but NO, I had faith things would get better.

For the next six months that car was broken down and in the shop more than it was on the road. It was so bad I finally had to give it back to the dealer (lemon laws).

Then it was a motorcycle, followed by a new van that I changed up to a camping van after the baby arrived.

We ended up driving that Duster for about 5-6 yrs when we got married (also dated in that car!) and then it got handed down to 3 more kids.. His brother and sisters!!

Our Bel Air was green and white. MELT now!

I had a black Mustang 5.0 in the early 90's. When I would go to the grocery store and the kids took my groceries to the car (yes, they did that in Texas) .. the kids would just DROOL over it!

HA! I forgot I said I would melt- and when I saw the color, green and white I could picture it perfectly- I immediately melted- then kept reading and saw your funny reminder.

And a black Mustang too? Wow! That was a hottie too! I guess they did drool!!!

And just to be nice- I will NOT, I refuse, to ask anything else about you ``dating`` in the car.

Well, ok, maybe one thing- did you date your hubby in the front seat or the back?

Adding to the song link that TuTu posted,

"Little Boxes" is a protest song written and composed by Malvina Reynolds in 1962, which became a hit for her friend Pete Seeger in 1963." [Wiki]

Pete Seeger does a fabulous job on that. Yet, be sure to hear Malvina's voice on that, too, such a unique treasure:

1970 Grand Prix (V-8 - 455 - cubic- inch 4-barrel).

I loved this car, till I blow the engine.

Steve, that is beautiful. The Pontiac engines would float the valves if you over reved them.

I used to let up when I heard the valves float, it would then shift.

Main bearings were to wide and could loose oiling at high RPM.

Wow! That car really says run me over! NICE!!!!

I can almost feel the shake, rattle and let`s roll as you were at a stop light revving `er up!

How fun!!! Oh, and did I say beautiful too? I`d have cried crocodile tears to have to give that one up.

Unfortunately, we are all not as mechanically inclined as Maddog and we are not able to salvage what we destroy.

Maddog is someone with a very special talent- able to tear them down and put them back together again looking even better.

Maddog, put a picture of your truck here. It is amazing!!!

Here is my ride back in the day.
https://sp.yimg.com/ib/th?id=JN.Vs4WMl8pgmOfGIOu2RZiXw&pid=15.1&P=0

passed most others cept the gas station.

That baby 302 cubic inch could make tremendous noise just sucking pure AIR.

Revving in the red zone you could hear the carb sucking further than the exhaust was talking.

Wish I could re-create that aspect

Those are high buck cars now days.

And before you ask Tinny,,,ALL my driving was from the front seat,,,,jeesh how else???

Hahahaha, the whole roadrunner/booby thing was awesome! When I saw that first post, I was thinking the Roadrunner car! My brother had one of those, back in the day.

I think he wrecked it, but I'm not sure. Have to ask the hubby -- he knew my brother and used to salivate over that car.

Ok Just Don, you got me. The pic is too small for me to tell what you have there. Its a looker, but what is it?

It appears not to be a convertible, even with the color changes. Too long, sleek and not the right rear for a Mustang.

Those wheels aren't standard on this model.

Can`t see the front or back end, so limited here. My best guess would be a Plymouth, maybe a Dodge Challenger?

Do tell.

The more I look at it, the nicer it is.

As for the gas station, oh yes. When a full tank of gas was about $3.00 and you'd get a free glass or steak knife with a fill-up. Now a gallon is the same price as a fill-up use to be!

[Eek!]

Kayak darling... HA! Good thing you know I love you, right?

I am laughing too hard to type. Ok.

A 58 VW is about the same to these others, as the flip flop I just made, not even noticing it till you said that.

Was watching Duke Boys and Boss Hog, having some boiled peanuts- then next meal its Led Zeppelin`s Highway to Heaven and Chinese food.

Yes, a little bit different. HA!

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9Q7Vr3yQYWQ

But, and I hope I did`t laugh too hard and hurt your feelings, my cousin had VW`s - a long line of different ones over the years- with the first one just like yours- and she loved them.

Well, she loved them until the day we were coming in from horseback riding and her car spooked the horse for some reason- and we had just been riding on city streets with no problem- and the horse bolted then ran right into her car, throwing her over the top of the car to the ground.

The horse was fine, but she was pretty banged up. She never really bragged about her VW`s after that.

Stupid story, I know, but you got me laughing and that is what popped out.

[lol]

And Just Don, the question wasn't driving from which seat, it was dating. Funny one you are!

But then again, I figure you for being a John Deere man.

[lol]

Keebler- thanks for sharing that version of the song. I had`t heard it before. Very nice.

Lymieloo- what did he say?

lpkayak – Let’s bring back some memories>>>

1958 VW Beetle

1958 was the first year for the "square window" in the back and while it lacks the impact of an Oval window, it retains a lot of the early charm and at a greatly reduced price. If this car was one year older, the price could almost double!

Tincup -- he said he wrecked it, then parted it out. Sad. He never took me for a ride in it either, but a year or two later I met a young sailor who owned one and was willing to oblige me! O.k. so I was a wild child, what can say....it was the mid-'70's....

My brother was hard on cars. (His name was Steve, btw. Just sayin'). He wrecked several, almost killing a young passenger once, a guy we went to school with. My parents had a red VW bug that he broke the shifting forks on, of all things. It sat for a couple years until I got married to my first husband at 17 (well hey, I wasn't so wild after that).

He and his dad, a mechanic, tried welding the shifting forks back together because to buy new ones required buying a whole kit for $80. In 1979, on one income of only $6.50/hr., $80 was way too much -- especially since we were saving for a "honeymoon" (read: cheap, cheap, road trip).

From then on, the forks would from time to time freak out and the car would get stuck in 2nd gear. This happened on our honeymoon near Steamboat Springs, CO....a long way from home. Twice.

But small world. My husband now was only one year ahead of me in school, knew my older brother and they had some of the same friends, worked for our neighbor in his oil co. and sometimes delivered my folks heating oil (after I was married), but we never met until '96. As a teen I'd seen him around and thought he was a hottie, though! [Eek!]

He owned a Challenger, too. And A Charger I think.

Ah, good times. Or really BAD, depending on how you look at 'em!

hehehehe...

1st- if taking a ride in a car with a sailor (keeping in mind we lived down the road from the Naval Academy) just to have fun is considered to be ``wild``... well, uh, never mind.

We will crown you LN`s official wild child. (That is assuming, of course, TuTu and Just Don were telling the truth about doing all their dating in the front seat.) HA!

You have had some bad luck with vehicles in your family. And on your honeymoon too! Ugh!!!!

It is interesting to read your story about how things came around after all those years. Made me smile! And knowing he was a hottie, hey, even better! [Big Grin]

Our memories, and always hoping they never totally leave us, are precious. Can be calming and put us in a better mood.

Enjoyed hearing yours, very much so!

[Big Grin]

Steve, hey there Steve!

You always post such nice pics! It really is cheerful and appreciated. And as --------- (can you fill in the blank?) sang, ``every picture tells a story, don`t it?``

Those pics of the pretty blue VW made me appreciate it even more. Hope Kayak is still speaking to me. ??

And, I see you got my drift too about the golfing. Funny man you are!

I believe the answer to the question is whether the blue feet are .76 megabyte or 2 megabyte and why the cost of shoes for those aforementioned feet at 14.95 and get 2 1/2 times more shoe.

At least that is what I've come to understand after reading the thread.

Serious answer :

Time warner sells 2 megabits per second not bytes. If your plan is currently .76 megabytes it would be 3 times faster than time warner. make sure your current plan is bytes. If it is bytes stay with your current plan. if it's megabits go with time warner, and it will work with LN.

You do make me laugh. I love it!

I came in tired and so dirty tonight the dirt was literally falling off me onto the floor! I was dragging my sorry self all the way to the bathroom, where I had to remove my clothes by rolling them off me so the bathroom floor wouldn't be totally dirt-covered!

A shower, some sweet smelling soap and a couple of clean towels later, I plopped down at the computer I had left on earlier.

And there right in my face was the post that said ... TINCUP... in the title! HA!

You got my attention. I had no clue what you were talking about at first. Took two read throughs to get it.

And yes, you got it right! Exactly!!! Making me laugh the whole time!

I went looking for a song and found one- it is posted there as your grade.

Thanks for picking up my spirits and making me smile.

You're welcome, and as always thanks for the kind words. Thanks for the video....

We're all in this together, you make all of us smile and laugh too - thank goodness, we need it!

I can only read so many sad post, when I reach my limit I turn it around by telling jokes, it even makes be feel better,

We need more in our lives than sadness and pain.

We need friendship
We need laughter
we need support
we need each other
We need to stay strong
And so on!!!

"Every Picture Tells A Story"
ROD STEWART


SING IT ....

Spent some time feelin' inferior
standing in front of my mirror
Combed my hair in a thousand ways
but I came out looking just the same

Daddy said, "Son, you better see the world
I wouldn't blame you if you wanted to leave
But remember one thing don't lose your head
to a woman that'll spend your bread"
So I got out

Paris was a place you could hide away
if you felt you didn't fit in
French police wouldn't give me no peace
They claimed I was a nasty person
Down along the Left Bank minding my own
Was knocked down by a human stampede
Got arrested for inciting a peacful riot
when all I wanted was a cup of tea
I was accused
I moved on

Down in Rome I wasn't getting enough
of the things that keeps a young man alive
My body stunk but I kept my funk
at a time when I was right out of luck
Getting desperate indeed I was
Looking like a tourist attraction
Oh my dear I better get out of here
'for the Vatican don't give no sanction
I wasn't ready for that, no no

I moved right out east yeah!
On the Peking ferry I was feeling merry
sailing on my way back here
I fell in love with a slit eyed lady
by the light of an eastern moon
Shangai Lil never used the pill
She claimed that it just ain't natural
She took me up on deck and bit my neck
Oh people I was glad I found her
Oh yeah I was glad I found her

I firmly believe that I didn't need anyone but me
I sincerely thought I was so complete
Look how wrong you can be

The women I've known I wouldn't let tie my shoe
They wouldn't give you the time of day
But the slit eyed lady knocked me off my feet
God I was glad I found her

And if they had the words I could tell to you
to help you on the way down the road
I couldn't quote you no Dickens, Shelley or Keats
'cause it's all been said before
Make the best out of the bad just laugh it off
You didn't have to come here anyway
So remember, every picture tells a story don't it

Steve, BEEEEautiful Firebird! Is that yours, or um....a stock photo?

Haha, the sailor in the Roadrunner was just dropping me off where I was supposed to meet my friends! Strangely enough, he was a perfect gentleman, which is not what my mama told me (I grew up near a navy town). lol

I truly was a parents worst nightmare as a teen, which is no doubt why my parents were perfectly willing to allow me to marry at age 17.

Actually they were going to let me at 16, but we found out we would need a judges order for that, and that the usually only o.k.'d marriage that young if the girl was pregnant, which I wasn't. So I had to wait until the ripe old age of 17.

Love those car pics! And you all are too funny.
