Winter not over yet

Love seeing a pic of a good slam dunk; reminds me of my younger days when we would use the neighbors 8-foot rim and execute all kinds of fancy-dan dunks. One time we found out they were going on vacation for a week, and were like – Sweet! A whole freakin week of dunking to our hearts content. Then they decide to leave their other car in the driveway smack dab against the garage while theyre away, completely blocking our access to the rim. Darn! Like they knew what we were up to. :( Ah, memories…

So the kids are back in good with each other and heading to that evil town, Central City, for what? The winter blast? What sport will this be? I recall some accident a few years back out this way, no? An auto accident too. Need the researchers help again..

Whats with the big scarf again on Max? I never wear scarves, and I live in Illinois, which has real winter. All they do is get in my way. Hat and good coat are good enough. He’s driving in a supposedly heated car, but he’s cold, already, even wearing a damn scarf. What a wuss. If Im doing something outside I put the stuff on After I arrive, not in the car.  And if its physical your body warms up from the exercise.

By the way, next week I am doing my own winter blast  – skiing. In Canada. For a week. And no I’m not bringing a scarf. So I need a fill-in next Friday while I try not to break anything. I told my doctor today I was going to Canada for spring break, and he said, sorry he cant help me then. Maybe I’ll bring back a box of Canadian snow for my friend who hates snow. Lol. Thanks again for the help – I should be good to go by the 25th. Cheers!




  1. Our very own Ned made it to the Comments of the Week on the Curmudgeon website!

    Rob, I can probably spell you next Friday. I’ll reach out to the gang if that changes.

  2. So, we’re all over the Kenzie Angry thing? And we didn’t even get to see her SMASH anything? I am disappointed.

  3. I hear ya, John. Bear in mind that we have already seen Kenzie laying the smack down at various times in this arc so I would be surprised if we don’t see at least one more SMASH, as you say.

  4. “I’m cold already.” I’ve heard that a few times this year; the polar plunge thing is big around here, jumping thru a hole in the ice for charity. Shrinkydink and all that tomfoolery. Now, it is a little late in the season to trust the ice, especially with the warm March. Nevertheless, I can’t wait to see the latest in Milford swimwear fashion…

    Thank goodness Max is wearing his letter (and matching scarf!) – gotta represent!

  5. OK, maybe I missed something, but it appears Kenzie and Maxwell are going to Central City, that name out of Flash Gordon, for some reason other than a game, otherwise wouldn’t one or the other of them be riding the team bus? Central City (drum roll) is the place where tires get slashed and Kaz decks hecklers. I have a feeling something fairly dramatic– and utterly independent of “our story thus far”– is about to happen.

  6. Ah yes , 8 ft rims. There was one at the grade school in my tank town. It was attached to a brick wall so be careful on the follow through. The real leapers dunked on the 9 ft rim. If you live in Chicago area you just need to check Andy Avalos’ check list to know what to wear in the morning. Heavy jacket, check. Hat,check. Scarf,check. Boots, check. Rubbers, check. Whoa! This is a family show.

  7. Will it be Kenzie this time as Herk the Mauler when things get ugly in Central City?

  8. Thanks for the heads up on the Curmudgeon honor. Owls have assumed an important part of my life.
