If the string gets rained on and freezes at say +20F, the wind won't blow it.
So how do I know the wind chill factor I should dress for giving the erroneous readings from the string?
Oh, never mind. Don't look like it's going to get cold enough to worry about it here.....

If the string is frozen you should be looking for the ski to mount to your front tire...



And pick up the bear skin rug to put on top of your leathers...

Oh, Never Mind ... I'll just sit by the fireplace with a hot drink...

You say that 20F might be a bad thing? Not, -20F gets touchy, oh, never mind, I’m probably the only idiot out there below zero. Me and snowmobilers,

Weathermen do three things, but only two well.

They are good at telling you what the weather was yesterday.

They are good at telling you what the weather is doing right now.

What the weather is doing tomorrow? Oh, never mind!

-20F ???
You'd be safer with a blindfold and a Budweiser.
That way you won't tense up when you crash.
Never mind.... It's probably best to have both hands on the bars...

When someone will chip in he need ABS on the front wheel brake in the snow.

Oh never mind.

There are some unique qualities of LEDO Pizza that come from its long history. People often ask why is LEDO Pizza rectangular. The round pizza pans commonly seen today were very new in the fifties.

Rectangular baking pans were readily available, hence the square pizza. Since that time, round pans have become the rage as pizza operators are able to cut costs by giving the appearance of more, while actually offering less.

OH, Never Mind...

That's from the franchise in Westminster. My wife & I often ate at the orignal restaurant when it was on University Blvd in College Park. The best made franchise Ledo Pizza we enjoyed was at Ocean City, MD, where they baked it just a little bit longer for a crusty crust cheese...

The franchises use the same recipe and ingredients (although the crust seems to be getting thinner) and do a reasonable job of getting close to the orignal...

Oh... Never Mind... The kids abandoned their pop's location & moved into some downtown (College Park) building. The place now has an industrial ambiance, nothing like the original Italian family restaurant...

They tell on themselves of their flailing 'tomorrow' forecasts.
Never mind tomorrow when they keep hiring ladies with big.... personalities so you won't think about tomorrow.
(or at least forgive them when they are wrong)
They are kind of like an insurance policy... of sorts.
And yeah, I fall for it every time.
