One dumbass minute campin' with Ed 'n Hank...

"Nice day, huh...?"

"Sure was. Real nice."

"So's... Ya wanna turn in, Hank...? 'S gettin' a migh' cold out here..."

"You got it, Ed..."

A few mintues later...

"Damn... Think there's somethin' hard under this here sleepin' pad... Yeah... Here it is... No wonder I slept so terr'ble-like last nigh'..."

"So that's where tha' went... Found it yesterday afternoon 'n couldn' figure out where it got to... Sorry, Ed..."

"Ya know, Hank... If'n yer tryin' ta determine if I'm a real princess... that's s'posed ta be under a whole buncha soft mattresses... not just one lousy sleepin' pad..."

"Put it closer ta the light, princess... That ain't no pea... It's a rock tha' looks jus' like Wilfred Brimley..."

"It's Wilford... not Wilfred."

"Put it closer ta the light, princess... That ain't no pea... It's a rock tha' looks jus' like Wilford Brimley..."

"Tha' don't look like Wilford Brimley."

"Yeah, it does."

"Somethin's wrong with his head."

"Maybe a horse kicked him 'n he's got it bandaged."

"If'n a horse kicked ya in the head ya'd need more'n a bandage."

"Not Wilford Brimley. His head's harder than yers even. Rock-hard as a matter a fact."

"Dumbass.  Besides... them glasses ain't attached at the nose..."

"Minor imperfection."

"'N his mustache is all lopsided."

"'N by 'his' you would be referrin' ta who exactly...?"

"I ferget."

"Think the correct answer ta that is... Wilford Brimley."

"Nope... That ain't it."

"So's, Ed...?"


"Ya know what else is rock hard...?"

"The thought a Wilford Brimley gets ya goin', huh...?"

"Nope. But you sure as hell do."

"Well then... C'mere, dumbass."

"You got it, princess..."

Yay for coincidences... I just sent you a mail about a piece of rock!
(But it doesn't look like Wil Brimley, rather like a chunky kingfisher)

That is a gorgeous rock - We've seen a helluva lotta rocks in our time - but nothing like that!

Re: love rocks

Yeah - We've picked up a whole lot of rocks around here too - Too many even. And yeah, it never takes much for Hank. :=)

I don't know why it's always fresh and silly
and I always feel like I did the day I met these
two. What shines through blue is your love for them.

Thank you Thank you.

That's so sweet of you to say. And I do admit I got a thing for those two...

Cute! Nice rock, too, even if the mustache is a trifle crooked. (Maybe he slept on it wrong.)

LOL - I bet that's the explanation! (Or it's Ed's fault and he smashed that mustache when he slept on that rock.)

My dear friend, an actress in Dallas, once performed in a commercial with Mister Brimley.

She said he was such an asshole, she'd never work with him again. That was over 20 years ago and, so far, she's kept that promise to herself.

Too bad. (Although I can't say I'm real surprised.) I just don't understand people who are like that when you'd think it'd be just as easy (if not less work even) to be a decent person to the people you work with.

Hank has misplaced that rock again, (which is why he only had the one lousy picture of it taken in the tent), but when it shows up again he'll toss it out back - Unless you can think of anyone else it looks like...?
