    The power holes are seen on the insides of the 3/9 areas of the hoop plus the grommets on the outside are almost like a Babolat mini-woofer style grommet. Definitely not as powerful or stable as the PD stock.

    yummm... how can you fit so many things between two slices of bread?

    I had to use a brick to push down my sandwich maker once. Eventually it made the hinges between the two sides break off. But it made some epic sandwiches.

    LOL! It's a big sandwich but not overloaded. They also have a pretty large panini maker.

    I just use the same brick and I use my non-stick pan to make panini's now. Dang, much like my racquets, I am also overrun'ed by kitchen appliances.
    Anyone need a ice cream maker?

    Now if everyone will excuse me, I am going to get my steak and cheese. j/k.

    I've been avoiding buying a deep fryer but I have really been enjoying my fried zucchini blossoms with mae ploy dipping sauce! Pan frying has been messy though. My kitchen has no room for another appliance either. Hrmmm.

    hey Sup...you 45 yet? Feel like visiting Philly the last week in August? I'm looking for a doubles partner in the 45s National Grass Court tournament.

    On Topaz's suggestion, I pinged the Bolivian Necktie to see if he's playing, but haven't gotten a response yet.

    Last week in August. It's during the week, and singles start on Monday the 26th regardless of draw size. Don't know when doubles starts.

    A buddy of mine played a grass court tournament in Florida a few years ago. He said his back was sore for a few days because every ball bounced so low.

    You dorks! Zap helped me out with some discounted tix for Citi/Legg (whatever the heck it is now). So I got him a shirt!

    And thank you for the compliment, Zapvor!

    And while many of you may find the next announcement not nearly as exciting or intriguing, I am VERY thrilled to announce that I am now officially a registered nurse.

    Be nice. I am good with needles. *eyebrow*

    +1... he's just trying to "nathan hot dog" his opening line.


    Why did the frankfurter sweethearts tell the sauerkraut to get lost?

    Because two's company, and three's a kraut!

    Yes, Sibley, though in the ICU. So, you'd have to reallllly injure yourself. Don't do that. ;)

    congrads topaz. Sorry I just read your prev post!
    What's your ICU speciality? My sister was born in Sibley. It's the weirdest location to have a hospital.

    I think I saw some tennis courts outside the hospital there. I believe it might be in the back...

    Tix have gone to $hizzz. $51. At least weather isn't a scorcher.

    Saw BG & Killa Cahill sitting near us. Mardy Fish kinda stunk up his fhd in match vs Melo & Dodig. Pulled it out in tb though...
