You know you're poor when you can't afford a monkey on your back.

I don't think Steven was saying Rob was the winner, but so be it.

And rob smith, with "I need MORE Espresso :-)" get the nod for the next poster.

Sure sounds to me like he was.

BTW, is your avatar Johnny Carson?

Entry to make this a legit post: Kids these days...

OK, at least ten entries.
So what have we got.
A few that just don't come up to scratch.
A couple that nearly make the mark

So that leaves me with these four unwilling victims, sorry, potential winners...
KWSN -
Timbuktu, please! ...And step on it !!!

Blurf -
"I'm off to find the shrubbery....I'll just catch a ride here."

Skildude -
You know you're poor when you can't afford a monkey on your back.

Monday -
6th house on the left please, just past that white car.



(Nobody got the gratuitous prize for guessing my caption which was "I get $10 a trip to get them onto the two occupant lane"...)
Now which one to win?
Blurf, by a short hair and a bit of grass, from KWSN, then by by less than a goat's toe nail, we have Skildude and Monday.
PM on its way.

I got the personal message, so I assume I'm the winner... (although reading Rob's message just below, it's hard to tell...)

I was going under the assumption that some of you may have heard the phrase:
"Timbuktu under an assumed name may not be far enough..."

Will try to search my FlickĀ® account for a funny shot: I'm currently re-building my main computer from a boot (and a few other partitions!) hard drive failure...

well, it wasn't as long as I thought...

Sarah Palin (who "studied" Journalism) and her constant attacks on the "lamestream media" have reduced the NBC peacock to strutting in people's backyards.
