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!


Town Legalizes Drinking and Driving

My in laws have come for a visit.  It shouldn't last more than a week or two.  The kids love it when grandma and grandpa are around.

Irish Town Legalizes Drinking and Driving

I wonder if Americans of Irish decent are covered under the new law.  Maybe we could work out a two week asylum for in law visits.  I like Irish beer and whisky. 

Blogging may be light for a while.  I've got a few posts lined up so, you'll have a reason to stop by. In the event I don't survive the visit, there are bad joke Wednesday jokes in the queue until sometime mid summer.

    Wish we could get the grandparents to come and visit. Somehow they all have a preconceived notion we're obligated to either send our kids or pack the whole family.

    Enjoy your time!

    My grandson lives a half-hour away. We get to see him and his parents quite often, and will be spending Easter Sunday out at their house.

    Take time and enjoy your in-laws' visit. Family is better than blogging.

    The kids love them and thats all that matters.

    I work nights. So I like to sleep in. The inlaws are early risers. There is a to do list a mile long that will be undertaken. I'm not allowed to have any say in it what so ever. Today I wanted one of those things done one of the two ways I said two weeks ago. I ended up taking down a fence, pulling posts and busting cement before I came to work tonight.

    Like I said the kids love it when they come and its only twice a year. I do get to come in to work to rest up after a hard day of work at the house.
