BOO--I offer you my sympathies upon the passing of your
pets. We all know how they become adopted members of the
human family. I will also keep you and yours in prayer.
Sarah, you are so kind to help get the right food for
your sassy. :)
PH--thanks for that photo of the top of the building.
Did you take that from the el? haha I notice that there is quite a railing around the top. So you didnt even want to go up
to the rail? I like the marina in the photo too.
Oh, and your little knock knock joke above made me think of the time that
my wife told me that she made a bunch of brownies, but when I pulled back the foil from the top of the pan...there was indeed a bunch of brown "E"s, as in cut-out brown, construction paper "E"s, the little stinker! ha
I did not get to see tags tonight, so no 'report,' tho on Gomer Pyle
I noticed in the credits that writer Jack Ellisen was the Producer!
Prayers for all,

MDC, I liked your story about the brown e's. Next time, stick a few in your mouth so they are partially sticking out and tell your wife that her cooking is improving.
That photo link I posted of the top of the John Hancok Center was probably taken from a drone flying nearby. A person at ground level would have to be at least a mile away to see that enclosed structure in the middle of the roof.
Also, I need to correct you. That is NOT a vertical safety railing all around the edge of the roof. Those are two metal horizontal track rails that the scaffolding equipment travels on as it hangs over the edge that the window washers use. That equipment is motorized so that it can move around the building while the washers can raise and lower their scaffold. When not in use, it is kept inside that large enclosed structure. I have walked up to the inner rail, but I never dared climbing over it or the outer rail to reach the edge of the roof.

April 16, 2021 - Msg 116537: Funny story MDC...Hereís a Funny Cooking story too...Back when I first got married my wife made a birthday cake for my Dadís Birthday. He was a serious guy, but he had a closet prankster side to him too.. So we got him back one time...

We had only been married for a couple of weeks when we decided to do this..She told him she was going to make him a cake, she said she never made one before and it was her first attempt...So we got a piece of foam rubber cut it into a circle and put chocolate icing on it....The look on my Dadís face was PRICELESS as he TRIED to cut it..He was trying to be polite and sensitive since this was her first attempt..We all laughed watching him saw away at it... It was like Ellie Mae Clampet once did on the Beverly Hillbillies. (If you remember she was a terrible cook) ..

It was one funny moment in time, and grin on his face was a snapshot for the ages!...

Let me know if the porch needs a sweep                                   Archives
This version of The Taylor's Front Porch has been created to pay our respect to the original porch found on Thanks to Frank for all the work he did for Mayberry on the web. We've tried to make this just like Frank's Porch. This is also a tribute to Ollie's "Trivialities" site which was another homage to Frank's porch but is no longer with us.
