Wife is away for a month. I was waiting for my oldest to finish a school thing, and my will to cook was gone.
Good burgers, though.

You know, a more responsible response would have been 'I'll drop around later with some lovely home cooked meals'.

It takes a village, gentlemen.

Son, we live in a world that has forums, and those forums have to be guarded by Mods. Who's gonna do it? You? You, Nickman? I have a greater responsibility than you can possibly fathom. You weep for Lucy, and you curse GE. You have that luxury. You have the luxury of not knowing what I know -- that GE’s moderation, while tragic, probably saved lives; and my existence, while grotesque and incomprehensible to you, keeps threads on track and under the appropriately sized, highlighted green headings.
You want moderation because deep down in places you don't talk about at parties, you want me on that forum -- you need me on that forum. We use words like "stay on topic," "use the appropriate forum," "please delete." We use these words as the backbone of a life spent defending something. You use them as a punch line. I have neither the time nor the inclination to explain myself to a man who rises and sleeps under the blanket of the very moderation that I provide and then questions the manner in which I provide it. I would rather that you just said "thank you" and went on your way. Otherwise, I suggest you get a green handle and edit a post. Either way, I don't give a DAMN what you think about moderation.

There's a film crew arriving in about 1hr here at work too take some footage for this 100yr celebration. The boss has told me to hide when they arrive because my overalls are full of holes and still have the old logo on them..

Ok boss man..done !!

Of biggest concern to them is the location of the holes in your overalls and lack of undergarments.

I don't buy a jersey every year. 2020 is time for a new one and some new signatures. My current one has the 2014 squad on it.

The last jersey I bought is 2015 home jersey.

Multiple others but haven't collected a jersey since 2015.

Some of the designs I just hate the collars.
