All in the Family featured the curmudgeonly Archie Bunker. Archie was television’s most famous grouch, blunt, blustering, straightforward and untouched by the PC crowd. He was the archetype of the conservative male. Michael desprately tried to reeducate him, but he persisted in his breviloquence.

Looking back at the last 40 years, we realize: ARCHIE WAS RIGHT!



Number one kid got sick.
Number one wife got sick.
I got sick.

Before I had kids I never got sick.  Now I never seem to avoid it.

    Get well, my friend. All of you.

    "Number one wife got sick."

    Didn't realize you were Mormon.

  3. If its good enough for Mitt. If you work it right you add a new model every couple of years and send the older ones out to work. It's my new retirement plan since social security is shot.

  4. My wife had to go into the emergency room a week ago.

    They put two liters of fluids into her.

    Dang, G, that's harsh. Hope she's feeling better, now.

  6. Hey Y'all. Anyone see's or talks to Astrosmith... tell him to look me up. I really need to talk to him ASAP.

    I can be reached here:

  7. I'll pass it on nate.

  8. Giraffe, what was wrong with her?

  9. She was vomitting, starting on tuesday, so she couldn't keep any food down and didn't feel like drinking anything. Then she got diarrhea on thursday. By Sunday she felt like death.

    We went to the emergency room on sunday evening and they put the fluids in. They don't know what was causing it. Although the antibiotic they gave her may have been causing the diarrhea and her dehydration may have concentrated the antibiotic. So sort of a vicious cycle.

    Her potassium levels were off, so as I understand it was starting to get serious. She stopped the anibiotic, and the diarrhea stopped in about a day, and she took potassium pills for a couple days.

    She felt much better after getting the fluids, and was back to normal in a couple days.

    I'm glad she's doing better.
