   Calvinesq posted on Pet Peeves  I like mustard on hamburgers. So, first Burger King said that they do not put mustard on burgers, even from the takeout window! So, I have to struggle with mustard packets in the car, which is both messy and annoying. Now, I am getting the same thing from Wendy's. For years, I would always be granted my wish for mustard on the burgers at Wendy's. Not anymore. Pass me the packets and the napkins, and watch me get mustard all over my shirt and pants!

   MeiDei  Cal bring a small squeeze bottle of mustard with you. If you're concerned about mustard here's this from an expert @ French's:

"Dijon, Horseradish, Creamy & Light mustards will lose their distinct flavors if not refrigerated, so we encourage refrigerating both. For all other mustards, refrigeration will help maintain flavor; however, it is not necessary to refrigerate if you prefer to consume your mustard at room temperature." Hope this helps.

   StormCnter  I'm a mustard person, too. My husband is a mayo person. Probably we should have paid attention 60 years ago. And, GO3, nothing is better than a Whataburger!

   Calvinesq posted on Movies & Reviews  This should be an easy one: Actors and Movie?

Also, since I don't think it gives away too much, what do Texans (e.g., Storm ) think of this movie?

   StormCnter  Timothy Bottoms, Jeff Bridges and Cybill Shepherd in the photo. Larry McMurtry wrote the book, loosely based on his hometown Archer City, Texas. The town's name was changed for the movie, but it was filmed in Archer City, a couple of hours north of me. McMurtry co-wrote the screenplay with Peter Bogdanovich (who famously had an affair with Shepherd during the course of the filming ). When I had British guests several years ago, they really, really wanted to meet Larry McMurtry, so I took them to Archer City, which isn't a city at all, just a nice example of smalltown Texas. Larry McMurtry has a home outside of town and, at that time, three bookstores on the main drag. So, we were able to locate him and he was very gracious about posing for photos and signing books for us. While we wandered around town, it was wild to hear the locals talk about which of them were in the movie and who didn't make the cut. There was some real elbowing for the Brits' attention. Later, we stopped at the Dairy Queen for coffee. Larry McMurtry wandered in and joined us. He is a nice man and my houseguests were thrilled beyond description. The physical movie theater from the film had been turned into a community theater forum when we were there and McMurtry was underwriting the effort.

   Calvinesq posted on Jokes  The Proctologist

A proctologist had become fed up with malpractice insurance, Obamacare and HMO paperwork and was burned out.

Hoping to try another career where skillful hands would be beneficial, he decided to become an auto mechanic. He went to the local technical college, signed up for classes, attended diligently and learned all he could.

When the time for the practical exam approached, the proctologist prepared carefully for weeks and completed the exam with tremendous skill. When the results came back, he was surprised to find that he had obtained a score of 150%. Fearing an error, he called the instructor, saying, "I don't want to appear ungrateful for such an outstanding result, but I wonder if there is an error in the grade?"

The instructor said, "During the exam, you took the engine apart perfectly, which was worth 50% of the total mark. You put the engine back together again perfectly, which is also worth 50% of the mark. This equaled an A."

After a pause, the instructor added, "I gave you an extra 50% because you did it all through the muffler, which I've never seen done in my entire career."

According to Wikipedia Wayne wasimitating a stance Carey himself often used in his films. According to Wayne, both he and Carey's widow Olive (who costarred in the film ) wept when the scene was finished.

   Calvinesq posted on Jokes  Golf and Romance

Ed and Nancy met while on a singles cruise.

When they discovered they lived in the same city only a few miles apart Ed was ecstatic.
He immediately started asking her out when they got home and within a couple of weeks, Ed had taken Nancy to dance clubs, restaurants, concerts, movies, and museums.

Ed became convinced that Nancy was indeed his soul mate and true love. Every date seemed better than the last.

On the one-month anniversary of their first dinner on the cruise ship, Ed took Nancy to a fine restaurant and while having cocktails and waiting for their salad, Ed said, "I guess you can tell I'm very much in love with you and I'd like a little serious talk before our relationship continues to the next stage.

So, before I get a box out of my jacket and ask you a life changing question, it's only fair to warn you, I'm a total golf nut. I play golf, I read about golf, I watch golf on TV. In short, I eat, sleep, and breathe golf.

If that's going to be a problem for us, you'd better say so now!"

Nancy took a deep breath and responded, "Ed, that certainly won't be a problem. I love you as you are and I love golf too; but, since we're being totally honest with each other, you need to know that for the last five years I've been a hooker."

Ed said, "I bet it's because you're not keeping your wrists straight when you hit the ball."
