The Unbearable Banishment: "What does this button do?" "Don't touch tha...!"

"What does this button do?" "Don't touch tha...!"

I was passing through Times Square and saw these two dudes up on a crane fixing an LED billboard. Let's call them Moe and Curly.

"Hey Moe, what happens if I twist this dial?

"You imbecile! Are you trying to get us fired!

Nyuk-nyuk-nyuk. And what does this button do?

* * *

Apropos of nothing (perhaps because it's the dead of winter) here's a fantastic pic that Mrs. Wife took of the girls and I on the beach. She gets a big A+ for composition and color. Well done, you.

Here's a rare full frontal shot of us with a pumpkin. This was taken just a couple of weeks before the shit hit the fan. And now, all that angst is behind us. For now. See...all you have to do is ride it out. So simple!

Boys. When they finally find it. They don't know what to do with it.

Your girls are looking gorgeous, Mr UB. Knockouts.

daisy: The kids are great but it's 17 degrees this morning and I'd give my left nut to be typing this from a beach right now.

dolce: I found it, didn't know what to do with it and lost it. Hope the girls end up with girlfriends. I don't want any scuzzy guys comig around here.

Nice pictures-If I were those guys I would have fallen off. It made me dizzy just watching it-can you imagine smoking one before they start their job?

Isn't it always very striking when one sees a photograph of someone you only read?

MT: Good point. How to you work with your face pressed against that? Can you imagine how bright it must be at eye level?! I stare at my monitor too long and it gives me a headache.

sav: I like your footprint.

looby: For a REAL head-trip, meet up with someone and hear what their voice sounds like. It's crazy! Sometimes, there's a foreign accent attached to it.
