DC is done! - Page 7

post #181 of 267

Hey, I know you...

Or know of you. I went back thru' your posts, you ski with Skiswift@Stowe, so do I!
Saw the 2 of you skiing down Lookout, lookin' good. He said that you were a heli-guide, or something like that.
Then I saw you with Skiswift at the Matterhorn.
Looked like you were in deep convo' so I did not come over.
Thought I recognized the pic. The pic. does not do you justice, does not show how tall you are...you look to be at least 5'10", right?
Sorry 'bout what I said before in an earlier post.
Good luck, maybe see you next season, I bought one of the Spruce duplexes, so I'll be up there more often.

Back in town

Hey Skitoday..thanks for the comments.
Child-bearing hips?? Don't all women have such accoutrements?
I thought they were standard issue.

No, skitoday, I was never a heli-guide, though I did do a couple of shadow gigs, and I passed my WFR cert. What I really wanted to do was fly choppers!

Thanks, Mom, sounds funny saying that, I checked out the web-sites for Taos, Santa Fe etc..you have definitely given me something to think about, and I am grateful. Looks like the DP in that area is more robust than the weak-kneed group in the East.

Someone looking for a cowboy?

post #184 of 267
Now that looks like a man who saddles his own horse
post #185 of 267
Aw shucks, ma'am.
post #186 of 267
You know Morfdude is still available....and he can be anything you want him to be and easy to transport.



He learned how to saddle his own rail from Phil.

When you hear that i'm a cowboy, and i work the cattle trail.
You probably assume i'm big and tough (big and tough)
But the trail's worn me down, i don't want to hang around
I've just about had enough (had enough)
you see i like a nice cup of expresso,
and i like to read my people magazine
I co-ordinate my chaps, but everybody laughs
and say they don't like that shade of green

Chorus:
Oh no, it's true, i'm a sensitive cowboy and i don't know what to do
oh no, it's kinda strange, i'm the last sensitive cowboy on the range

well i try to eat a healthy, balanced diet
but they all eat their brown beans from the can
They all have to smoke about six packs a day
you'd think they was the marlboro man (*cough* smooth!)
and they don't like to go to see the opera
on friday nights when they get paid
and they don't help me bring in the hanging plants
every time there's a native american raid

Chorus

(Spoken)
Cowboy life sure is different these days
why brand your cattle when you can just use bovine psychology?
why have a gun fight when there are so many good para-legals out there?
Nobody drinks and bush-whacks anymore
And besides, we're all switching over to eating salt-reduced tofu jerky
And if you're gonna ride off into the sunset,
make sure you're using an effective sun-block

Chorus (x2)

Over-generalizing nonsense.
DC is hugely Democrat..when the Republicans took over, there was a minor shift, but, remember ALL the lifers in the civil service are Democrat.

My impression of DC women is that they all have that horsey look and dress like an LLBean/J Crew/Talbots yard sale, at least when at leisure. Definitely more Connecticut than Venice Beach or NYC, they looked like prep republicans to me. Maybe it's just that ivy league thing? I was in DC over the weekend for my brother and nephew/godson's birthday party at Lincoln Park on the Hill, so I got an eyeful.

Hey, since you like Corvettes so much, did you have the chance to catch any of the National Law Enforcement ride along??? There were some beauties in town, along with plenty of Harleys. My nephews (3 & 5) really enjoyed the show.

I always get a kick out of that type when they come out here for vacation. You're on vacation, why is your "casual" overdressed compared to the local "business"?

This was better than the voters guide! Straight democrat ticket in '09.

Well if you set aside the metro sexuals then maybe.

DC_Duh, I recommend you focus your search for male companionship here: http://wonkette.com/politics/hotties/

Ha ha ... I spent most of my 20s in pantyhose. PANTYHOSE. We moved straight from DC to "the OC" right when I turned 30, and I haven't touched a pair since. My husband has about 25 suits that are basically taking up space in the guest room closet. But you spend that much money at Brooks Brothers, it's hard to get rid of them.

Anyway, DC Duh: I met my husband in DC. He was a Colorado transplant, just like me, so we understood each other. We are there no longer, obviously. Fun while it lasted, glad to be gone. One of his good buddies became a lobbyist, and now splits time between DC and Jackson Hole. He represents the heliski industry, and spends much of his winter and spring, uh, accepting favors? (Sorry, he's married already.)

So, all is not lost. You might find what you need there, just gotta know where to look.

I will never date a woman in pantyhose.

I'm still waiting the singles ad: "I enjoy long runs in the backcountry, I enjoy travelling in the alps, andes and antartica and I look just as good in gore-tex as I do in fleece...

Boy I'm relieved to hear that, hopefully you don't wear skirts either (I flashed on this mental image of Colonel Potter but it was just too much... ) : : : .

"In Wyoming, where the men are men and the women are too"

Back when I was younger, much younger, me and my friends tried the dating thing but gave up due to the confusion regarding exactly who we were dating. One type of gal would appreciate having the door opened for her but the other type definately did not. They would angrily tell us something like "we can open our own door" .

After a few years of that confusion we came up with the idea that American women should have some sort of signage to let us know where they stood regarding the door opening thing, like colored dots on the forehead, a system they use in India. As you imagine that didn't work out so well so we said "hell with it" and formed our own men's social club patterned after the famous Cheyenne Social Club. We called it the Moose Boys Ranch headquartered on a ranch in Moose.

The next 10 years or so we had a great time!

I can't imagine living in a big city let alone the dating thing. Don't give up. I met my wife online 10 years, so as they say....better late than never.

As you can imagine, I am a country girl and know of what you speak.

My up-bringing has made me a very capable woman, with little reason to have a man "do things" for me. I have my own John Deere Tractor, chain saw, and .........oh you get the idea. So I am perfectly capable to open my own door, however...............I was raised with the idea that, when a man opens your door you say thank you and recognize that he was raised with manners. A woman who doesn't appreciate that, no matter her capabilities, obviously lacks in her own manners.



Moose Boyz Ranch, huh? sounds like you guys had some fun!

Out in the bush n' bogs, it gets lonely and dark too. All a man needs is a pint of mash and a short ladder.
