    How come I am unable to use my reputation thingy? It is dead or disabled.

    When I click to give RP to someone. Most times it takes forever to come up before I can give it out. I guess its my slow dail up . I sometimes read another page, then it pops up while I'm clicking on something else and before I know it, I just gave out the RP without making sure my clicking didnt hit the - by accident. When that happens, I hope I didnt click on - RP . I never give out - RP so if I ever do, its a mistake on my part.

    John, looks like it's been revised, maybe they were working on it when you tried. Works ok for me.

    This is worse than those AAA meetings on Wednesday night. They cut me down to one rep a month. I got the delirium tremors already. I can't even find the right keys. I am going back to drinking. See ya next month when I can rep ya. John.

    I love the AAA meetings. After its over we all sit around in parking lot drinking beer and telling fish stories.
    It's like a tail gate party.

    I was just thinking it was great we don't have ta lick the stamps for those lil suckers and put em in the book....ya know a Zebco 202 for like a million reps.
    That was my job for mom when I was a kid. Licking the green stamps from the grocery for her and stacking the lil books up by the cookie jar. I'd run in, holler "Mom I'm hungry." She'd always tell me ta lick a few stamps "fat boy". I'm pretty sure I'd licked up at least one horse full of glue by the time I went in the service. I can remember breaking wind in my bib overalls, and it would smell like the post office.....

    The rep point thing works great now.

    Ah, I remember licking S&H green stamps for stuff mom needed like waffle irons, knitted toilet paper covers and other such items. But as I remember they never offered the really important stuff like Zebco 202's.

    LOL, The post office phart thing was somewhat disturbing... :eek:oooh:

    You probably have a mighty clean screen by now unless you've been drinking chocolate milk recently.

    I tried licking my screen for points once and all I got for my effort was dust.

    You kids, LOL!
    My wife and I never bought anything to go on the wall, all that stuff came from S&H Green stamps. And a bunch of other good stuff. Our only TV light was a horse from S&H and we still have it... somewhere. When I worked in the oil fields I would never gas up the logging truck at a station that didn't offer S&H stamps. Don't forget "double stamp" day on Wednesday. :wink:

    I have a quickie challenge;

    The first person who can tell me what the S&H stood for I'll give some rep points.

    No fair looking it up, old folks my age should already know!
