Why that's my favorite kind of post!
It seems the problem here is that you use a stinking MAC.
Which reminds me of a story.
I know this fellow named Buck Zook. He's the same Buck Zook that were responsible for my coondog Petey's loss of one testicle and the sight in his left eye. However that is a different story.
Well now Buck lived in a house down on 250 E in a little row of houses that folks around here named "Dogpatch"
Ardella Zook and all her youngun's lived in Dogpatch too. I think she had 7 kids, I don't rightly recall. She weren't no relation to Buck. It's funny how two families with the same last name could live in the same community and not be kin, but it was so with Buck and Ardella.
Ardella used to take her kids to church on "Fellowship Sunday" aka "Potluck Sunday" Ardella was an extremely thin woman with a glaring overbite.
My daddy used to "say she could eat corn through a picket fence"
The Potluck dinner was held in fellowship hall in the church basement. The congregation had barely sang the last note of the "Doxology" befrore Ardella and her seven kids were flying down the basement steps. Her overbite caused her to have impeded speech. She would stand there with her offspring at the front of the line with one hand on her hip and raking the potato salad off the serving spoon with her front teeth saying "I just love a shmorgasborg", all the while her butt-picking, snot-licking, dirty fingered, barefooted children would be tearing through the biscuits and fried chicken, picking over the pieces to find the one they wanted, even sampling and discarding what they considered to be unsatisfactory fare.
The townsfolk wouldn't have accepted such crass and vulgar behavior except for the fact that Ardella was a valued employee at the town's only business in those days. It was a data processing firm and Ardella was their key keypunch operater. When the machine would malfunction and make an indentation more than a hole in the card, Ardella would remove the chad with her buck teeth. She did it so quickly that production wouldn't miss a beat.
There is more to tell but I am afraid I have wasted way too much board space not to mention the time of anyone so bored as to read this...
