    OK, but I know how much he loves cold weather.
    Global warming is playing a trick on y'all down in the sunshine state.
    Guess the prices of screwdrivers will be going up if it affects the orange crop

    Probably a good idea to warn him. The only thing worse than getting hit by a falling iguana is getting hit by a falling iguana when you’re drunk
    If you use JP-8, then it's technically not waterboarding

    Since global warming didn't pan out, they now say we are all going to die from global climate change.

    I see Bloomberg's latest political ad blames President Trump for tornadoes, hurricanes, and floods.

    Good grief! Now he will be out there gathering them up, and warming there little cold blooded bodies with his bourbon.

    No he would never waste good whiskey on a critter.
    Now he might start a bonfire with all those Christmas cards he did not send out.

    No...the worst thing is looking up just in time to see a falling Iguana headed straight into your open mouth. And that is only exceeded by the world's number 1 catastrophe: looking up with open mouth only to discover a large gob of buzzard poop headed for your mouth.

    Don't ask me how I know about the second one!

    @LimaCharlie Actually, everyone alive on the planet at this very moment is going to die one day. Unless something dramatic happens in the meantime.


    @G-man* Actually alcohol does not make you warmer, it redistributes the heat your body is desperately trying to conserve and makes you more likely to suffer hypothermia.

    I had to laugh at that one! I remember back when I was a very young teen age expert on "things" and gave my parents a very stern lecture about how they were going to die because they were making a batch of spiced wine (and/or other spirit?) to take in a big thermos to a college football game on a very cold day!

    They ignored me, of course. No sense trying to argue with a know-it-all kid. Waiting for her to grow up is the wiser course. In fact, I also remember another time when I was spouting 'truth' and my father told me I would learn different things as I grew up. I came back strongly with "I will NEVER lose my ideals!" His reply was "I didn't say you would lose your ideals. I said you would grow up!" And, by golly, I did.

    @OldChap If course it is true that enough alcohol can lower your body temperature. "Winos" do freeze to death out in the cold, don't they?

    Getting old was not on my list of "things to do" in the Golden Years!

    I'm close enough. Didn't get much sleep last night. The sound of comatose iguanas bouncing off my metal roof kept me up all night.
