It gave us some great routines and characters ie. Lilly Tomlin playing the phone operator, saying, "We're the phone company, we don't care; we don't have to" or Lily Tomlin as Edith Ann. And who can forget Tricky Dick saying, "Sock it to me"?

    Thanks for the trip down memory lane.

    Talking It's there, I'm incompetent

    Alrighty campers,
    I declare lack of computer training and no kids at home.
    So try "Ruth Buzzi laugh-In old lady" (Gladys is I think the character's name) on utube and several clips will appear. I like the series with the 2nd matching old lady and the dirty old man, Tyrone F Horneigh.

    Couldn't watch just one!
    Here she is with Jimmy Stewart and Dean Martin, at a roast with several other big stars. Ends up sitting next to Orson Welles!

    Gotcha beat. There is one that lives in the glove compartment of my truck that I believe made its debut at the VA hound show in the mid 80s. It was transferred out of the '84 truck to the '98 truck. And yes, it gets used if need be, then chucked back in there. And no, never been washed.

    BTW, if you happen to have two hairnets with complementing gaping holes, you just wear them both, arranged so that the top one's 'good' part covers the gaping hole in the bottom one.

    Yeah, I'm cheap.

    Ok, Beverley, I can picture your glove compartment hairnet stretched out like a spider's web, catching bugs.

    This sounds like the solution I have been looking for to surviving my M-F job as well. Thank you for the input. I greatly appreciate it! lolflask

    Word to the wise...

    Coworkers WILL notice if you are sipping your flask at your desk. However, they have yet to note that my gallon of apple cider in the fridge is harder than a rock

    Could definitely have used the hard cider this week. I am going on 2 weeks without a working computer, work piling up around me, a compliance audit on Monday (when I have not had a computer to do my job) and I am leaving for a conference in a week. Still trying to figure out how I am going to take care of clients between now and then

    If one has SHORT hair does one still need to wear a hairnet? When my hair was longer I wore one for dressage, but now there's really nothing to put the net around...info appreciated...

    While wearing your hunt helmet, take a careful look in the mirror. If your hair looks electrified and sticking out in interesting ways, you need a way to make it tidy. That may be lots of gel, a hairnet, or another creative method.

    Years ago, when I first started hunting, I hosted a Warrenton-Old Dominion joint meet breakfast. I was so new that no one knew who I was. I had my hair cut quite short and glued down. Going into the house for the Breakfast, A cheerful gentleman in scarlet came up behind me. He jovially slapped me on the back and enthusiastically asked,

    "Well, son, What did you think of your first hunt with us?"

    He was chagrined when I turned towards him, obviously a Sweet Young Thing..

    Was just thinking of you and wondering how you were. Clearly your sense of humor is intact!
