• Can’t believe another year has gone by already but my Mom’s little Rascal just gave me the ultimate in Happy Ass New Year’s cheer … The little (100 lbs now) fart just went out & got nailed by a fat assed skunk !!! OH Boy. Let me in DAD? Pleeeeease ?! Nothin like a fire alarm after 3 cold red beers & half a pint of Brandy… Well, he’s now peroxide scrubbed & so am I. Damned if I know what to do with the friggin sunroom now…quarantined him there on the mad dash to the bath. Sure hope your celebration goes smoother than mine guys…Remember to keep the sunny side up & good luck to all you Hawk fans with another National Championship in 2016! I’ll take a Big 12 to go along with it too. Hell, even Rascal eats out of a KU Bucket. ROCK CHALK JAYHAWK !!!

  • @globaljaybird never a dull moment in your household! It made me smile! Happy new year to you and your family! Rock Chalk rascal!😳

  • @Crimsonorblue22 Just wait, Rio’s savin one up for just the precise time for you too …

  • @globaljaybird If the peroxide scrub doesn’t work, the method that my wife’s trail ride buddies swear by is a bath of powered Massengill douche…they swear by it.

  • @globaljaybird what a night you had! Crazy dog. Rio is trying to get some squirrels eating the bird seed. He got a bird, my son was home and he chased him all over to get it away from him. Finally tackled him. We tossed him-the bird. I hope he doesn’t get the squirrels even though I don’t like them.

  • @Bill-Self he probably has some on hand too!😷

  • @Bill-Self Fresh out Bill, will have to take your word for it…I saw it happen & when the tail shot up Rascal backed up, so he may have dodged the full load…but the soda & peroxide seemed to do the trick, then I gave him a good scrub with nice fragrant pet shampoo afterwards just for good measure. Thanks for the advice-will have the other half put that on the list…but don’t think I’d feel so comfortable with that in the checkout line…

  • @globaljaybird ha ha! Reminds me when my dad had to get some products for me, he told me some boys I liked were there and he said he was getting the stuff for me.

  • @globaljaybird

    I have used catchup in the past and it seems to work OK. Of course a couple of applications of dog shampoo and rinse are a must afterwards.

  • @globaljaybird does he like baths?

  • @JayHawkFanToo Somethin new happens every day bud-this is a first for me even at this age. I’ve heard tomato juice & vinegar works. but I’m drinkin the juice & didn’t want to slop that staining krap all over the house if he took off on me… beer’s a better chaser with the juice anyway…

  • @Crimsonorblue22 For real?

  • @globaljaybird a video of this would’ve been great. I can kinda picture it.

  • @globaljaybird he doesn’t?

  • @Crimsonorblue22 Yeah but when he’s had enough, he’s hard to handle-somewhat similar to a large & rather spunky greased pig…

  • @globaljaybird this is better then going out on nye!

  • @globaljaybird

    Pretty much the same thing; the vinegar is actually doing the work. Catchup seem to stick and stay better so it has more time to work.

  • @JayHawkFanToo rascal would need a lot of ketchup!!

  • @Crimsonorblue22 Well…HAPPY NEW YEAR GUYS & GALS from one bored rat to ya’ll!

  • @globaljaybird Happy 2016 to you as well and to everyone on here, my favorite KU Bball forum. This place is like a taste of home to me. So far away on the east coast now, so far from Lawrence and AFH. This site is my virtual home away from home. Every time I log on to my computer, this is the website I come to first.

    I had a wonderful New years eve. I went to a place called Smugglers Notch ski resort in Vermont, about 30 min from my place, for some fire works and night skiing.

    Then as I was about to head home I realized I lost my car keys to my honda element. fabulous right?

    Anyone know how much it costs to replace car keys for a honda?
    This was the first and last time I ever lose my car keys again.

  • @Lulufulu If its a laser cut key fob it’s a dealer only item. We do chip & transponder keys for some Hondas at the hardware store I work at for about 39.99. But if it’s a Jetta - forgetta…the blanks come from Germany.

  • @globaljaybird no idea if its a laser cut key. From an 03 Element. hopefully its not a couple hundred or something crazy

  • @Lulufulu night skiing? Crazy dude! Soo that’s where u think u lost them? Not in the car u rode in? Seriously, guys can’t not find anything! Jk

  • @Crimsonorblue22 ;) Yah, its out in the snow somewhere. I bet my key will get found in the spring when the snow melts LOL! Stupid me, thought it would be a good idea to keep my key with me. Even funnier, I was sober when I made that awful decision.

  • Happy New Year to all my fellow board rats in the EST and CST time zones!

    Still a little over an hour to go out here. Trying to stay awake with a late pizza-n-spaghetti dinner, watching the Young Frankenstein marathon on TV. Gonna shoot some fireworks off around midnight, then come inside and watch the big Space Needle show on TV.

  • @Lulufulu at least it wasn’t your billfold!

  • @nwhawkfan same to u! Getti and pizza? Ewww

  • @Crimsonorblue22 And a little wine, of course…

  • @nwhawkfan need that to wash that food down! Enjoy

  • @Lulufulu An 03 should be a fairly common blank probably with a chip. Most True Value Hardware store should be able to accommodate you for less than 50 bucks–good luck & Happy New Years !

  • @Crimsonorblue22 You too ! Happy 2016 !

  • @Crimsonorblue22 Oh yah, that would suck too. I made sure to leave that in my car, where i probly should have left my keys. SMH. oh well.

  • @globaljaybird Right on man. Thanks for the tip. I’ll check it out!! happy New Year!

  • @Lulufulu at least u didn’t get sprayed by a skunk!

  • @Crimsonorblue22 Sometime I’ll tell you the story about losing mine when I was grading my son’s lot after his house was finished…“what a revoltin’development that was”… A William Bendix quote from The Life of Riley TV show back in the 50’s…

  • @globaljaybird sounds good!

  • Well I’m late to the party again. All the relatives just left so thought I’d take a minute to offer my HNY to everybody. Especially @globaljaybird with what Rascal put him though. What a heck of a way to ruin a good NYE buzz. Mikie met one of those black critters with the white stripe a few years ago. He stayed in the screened in patio that nite until I was able to get to the store the next morning for some tomato juice. Now we keep about 4 of those large cans in the pantry. It does work. Of course they get rotated out on a regular basis. And the vodka. Well fellow bucketeers, you too @Crimsonorblue22 , hope everybody has a great, prosperous and healthy 2016 and we celebrate a SB win and a NC to go with the Royals championship. What the heck, as long as I’m wishin’ I could sure use that $300 + million in the Power Ball. I’d take us all to the FF with the JHawks. Rock Chalk Happy New Year!!!

  • @brooksmd thx!

  • This was a major happy new year in a number of ways I won’t bore folks with. I stayed home and got to be with my loved ones. I never felt so lucky. I burned a 4 pound prime rib and a few tators. Had my favorite bottled water, Badoit, and a little champagne. No stupid parties with strangers finally. It took to my 60s but I finally got one right.

    My dog has followed me up to bed, where my love awaits.

    Happy New Year!

  • @Crimsonorblue22 Yes! No skunk spraying for me. LoL hehehe

  • @Crimsonorblue22 Try some Flaming Squirrel liquid mixed in the seed-birds love it squirrels hate it. I highly doubt if Rio would like it either…Woodrow went right through a couple of screens trying to get at squirrels a few years back. He & Roxy caught one & pranced around the back yard twirling & trading it back & forth having a grand time but that critter left a few bite marks on them in the process.Mom finally got them to drop it & pitched it over the fence with a shovel.

  • @globaljaybird good idea! I have a squirrel proof feeder, but they get leftovers on ground. You have some crazy dogs! I just really didn’t want rio to eat that bird. No way I would have got it from him. Pretty comical watching my son chase him down. Skunk smell gone today? How’s your wife?

  • @globaljaybird wonder if @Lulufulu got a key?

  • @Crimsonorblue22 No aroma today & wife’s slow to heal-type 2 diabetes doesn’t help.

  • @globaljaybird you guys keep hanging in there!

  • There’s a grave on our old ranch. But tied in it are a pair of Levi boot cut jeans. A dirty t-shirt, pair of socks a baseball hat and a pair of Justin ropers boots. Oh and a dog collar.

    No body in said grave.

    Was walking through some brush along a fence line when the ranch dog went on point. Before I could say anything we had both been sprayed by the biggest. Fattest smelliest skunk I’ve ever seen.

    I walked about a mile back to the barn as the pickup sat and called home. Mom and dad both laughing brought tomato juice oatmeal and the hair clippers.

    Dad shaved the dog down first, bald Austrailian Shepards are funny lookin, as mom packed the oatmeal on me and then sprayed me off and I got my head shaved. The dog and I both got a tomato juice bath as well.

    Then I was left to go dog that grave and get rid of all the evidence of having a dog that wouldn’t listen.

  • @Crimsonorblue22 No key yet. Gotta wait til monday, hit the honda dealership. Ah well, now I have a good excuse to just sit by the tv and watch College Basketball all day long, and watch KU beat Baylor in about 4 hours! Rock Chalk!

  • @JRyman No matter how bad we think it may be, it can always be worse. Cool story now but I know it wasn’t back then.
