Wet and soggy here today.

Supposed to be a little drier tomorrow, then wet(ter) and soggy(er) again on Thanksgiving.
Great news guys.... With the Air Hawk, flat balls are no longer a problem!!!

I woke up to the sound of the furnace running, I hate when that happens.  I have it set at 65 degrees.

It was very mild yesterday with a high near 50. When I got up, a little after midnight, it was still 46 according to the computer.  A BIG cold front has come through now and it's 32 and still dropping.

Re: Conan, I had to quit watching him when he moved to cable, because I haven't gotten cable TV since 2003. I kind of doubt his show is as good as it was back before he took over The Tonight Show from Leno (who then came and took it back from him).

The original Late Nite With Conan O'Brien, the show he stepped into Letterman's shoes for, was one of the funniest shows in the history of TV I think. Some of the characters he did on that show like the masturbating bear and Mafia Jesus etc, etc, really pushed the envelope of what could be gotten away with on TV.

I truly miss that show!!!

Conan O'brien used to have a lot of fun with Ah'nuld on his old NBC show.

This one is funny as hell...



If want to see more like that one, here's a link to a YouTube search result with several of them.

    Meanwhile, down in my neck of the woods swamp, it feels like June outside.



    And I'm not bragging about it, either.

    It sucks. (By about 10° anyway)

    I'm putting a life size cutout of Harvey Weinstein on the porch tomorrow night.  He'll have his arm around Kevin Spacey.   That should keep the little monsters away.  Evil Smile

    Holy moley!

    Lots of wind damage in a lot of the state, we were lucky to be in the northwest part of the state! We got rain and strong winds but nothing to the extent of the other parts. Yeeesh!

    The deathstorm passed.  We got lucky in my neck of the woods.  I had convinced myself that there was no way we would keep power, but outside of a few flickers last night we're good (for now...knock on wood).  It looks like outages were reasonably widespread across my area, to say nothing of the shoreline.  That's not taking into account the damages.  Apparently there are a dozen-plus roads closed in my town thanks to wires/branches/trees.  Crazy stuff.

    It looks rather breezy for this afternoon so I may very well have jinxed myself by talking about my good fortune.  We'll see....

    Thanks, Jimbo.  Ad N knows his old cars.  The Formula, or at least some of them, had a black stripe along the bottom of the car.

    Who knows exactly what model they were using. It had round headlights in the beginning.

    Are you sure that was a 'Formula'?  I imagine they updated the car with ongoing seasons, not sure how long it ran or from when to when.
    I owned 4 Firebirds, one was a T/A. They ranged from a 77 to an 85.

    Our first freeze warning is in place, a low in the upper 20's. I need to go buy some good wood.

    They had more than one of them, depending on what kind of scene they were shooting. One was set up and jigged for interior shots...



    You might notice that the license tag is different from the 853 OKG (Oklahoma Garner) tag that was a fixture on the exterior shot car.



    Might have had a backup one of those, too.

    Edit: AdN- you were right to begin with re: the Formula version of the Firebird.

    From Wikipedia:

    Quote Starting with the 1974 model year, Rockford would get a new model-year Pontiac Firebird each year throughout the series. The Firebirds used had an identical "copper mist" color with the Esprit's exterior and interior. Although the Firebirds were badged as Esprits, they were actually the higher performance "Formula" model without the twin scoop hood. Garner needed Rockford's car to look like the lower tiered "Esprit" model, a car Rockford could afford, but have the performance necessary for the chase sequences in the show. To achieve this, the show featured Pontiac Firebird Formula's re-badged and re-hooded to look like the "Esprit" model. The "Formula" model was developed to provide the performance of the top level "Trans Am" in a less ostentatious form. Formulas didn't have the Shaker hood scoop, side vents, graphics or lettering used on the Trans Am, but they had the same higher horsepower engines and drive trains, larger front and rear anti-roll bars, stiffer springs and shocks, and a twin scoop hood. (Sharp-eyed car connoisseurs can spot the twin exhausts and rear anti-roll bar on the cars used on the show, options that were not part of the "Esprit" package, as well as spot the different model year cars used in various chase scenes that differed from those in an actual episode, especially in later seasons). Although the series ran until early 1980, no Firebird was used past the 1978 model year as Garner reportedly was displeased with the restyled front end of the 1979 and later Firebird models and as such did not wish them featured on the show (although an answering machine message in one episode in the final season indicated his car was 1979 Firebird).

    Rockford was just a cool character period.

    James Garner had his own unique, laid back style that came through in every character he played.

    Would love to have known him personally.
