That's a sharp Saints flag flying outside your house, Metry. Keep it close and never allow it to get sullied, dirtied up due to some future severe thunderstorms or hurricanes that may come our way, but of which I pray to God above for all things Holy it doesn't happen.

I'm serious, if anyone stole my Saints flag, jerseys, heavy coat, they would see me running after them If I caught them in the act screaming and shouting violent 4 letter words like a PCP-induced rampage.

It's hardcore and I'm more then ready to take the gloves off when it comes to that.

It just split, it's an old cast iron 8" main, and it's broke about 5 times within the block since I bought this house about 12 years ago....

It's a cluster every time it breaks.....this one broke right in front of the access to my garage, so I have to wait until they put more filler sand, and replace the sod, so I can get my boats out....

I'm ashamed of you E.

FLIPPY, youd better pray Saintmans flag doesnt turn up missing if you got the same one!

Bummer about the flood but I give you permission to not mow your lawn for two weeks because its too wet.
