    Yeah, but she says that's only 'cuz she really likes Costco.

    Just so you know soon she will be buying camo in bulk. Don't worry I am sure you will look fine in it.

    I have a confession.

    I hate Costco. I'm definitely a Walmart person.

    I've never been in a real Walmart. This is a Target town

    (there's a Walmart supermarket near the office that I've been in. It's very nice.)

    I have a University of Wisconsin camo hat. She hates it.

    How can you hate Costco? You have enough people in your family that you could actually eat all that food.

    I'm a Trader Joe's guy. Well except when I actually want something from a real brand.

And if there had to be city walls, the walls had doors and the doors were open to anyone with the will and the heart to get here. That's how I saw it, and see it still.'" Ronald Reagan

    Of course now you're good to go for fishing gear.

    Walmart here has the best quality and variety of produce, but most everything else sucks unless you're into plastic food..

    Query: do women have midlife crises?

    Simple answer.....no.

    Query: Is a male midlife crisis part of the female agenda?

    This is so wrong on so many levels. Walmart is God's junk drawer.
    Plus Costco has the senior buffet.

    If you show Deadbait in the first act, he'll go off in the third.

    Pretty much. The point was to try to blend in at various Driftless bars.

    You may remember this story:

    I watched Bulls/Bucks there two weekends ago. Best burger in the Midwest.

    Sherb, you really need to go to Costco on a Saturday to fully appreciate this. I highly recommend it. Please report back on your trip...pictures would be appreciated.

    Start in the meat section for some cheese and crackers, then to frozen foods for the entrees.

    1. This thread is not about me.
    2. Costco sucks.

    Steven, I get the sense your wife is not that experienced with firearms. She ought to consider a revolver. Ultra reliable, and there's a lot less that can go wrong.
  • ricinusricinus Senior Member Posts: 6,214 Senior Member
    No, no, no, if you're attacked by Zombies you need firepower. At least that's what the guy at the gun counter said..

    7) Is she expecting there to be looting in your 'hood?
    8) Has she started to hoard food and water in the basement yet?

    Is she Mormon?

    BTW For a really nice and really small high-end carry 9mm get a Kimber or a Rohrbaugh.

    re #2 My post was in jest. don't ever go there on a weekend with all the Matlocks and crapsacks basically trying to eat their lunch off free samples. It is freaking awful.

    She grew up around rifles, but I have no idea what she knows about handguns.
    Anyway, a place on Elk Creek would be really nice....

    She's 100% shanty Irish.

    The nice thing about Costco samples is if you go before they are out, nobody's there and you're in and out in a minute..

    Look at the big brain on the Union grad! I am impressed with your knowledge of Chekhov.

    I once wrote a three act, 10 minute comedic play around this concept.

    Father was a cop, both grandfathers were cops. At least one great grandfather was a cop....

    Guns are in her veins, I guess. (Her father walked out on them when she was very young, although she recently was in touch with him - first time in 20 years)
