Nice to meet you, Mrs Larry.
  Wed. 12/12/18 10:29pm cupcakejenny:

:) Mrs Grogan is my school name. I’m just Jenny lol
  Wed. 12/12/18 10:30pm chresti:

Androgynous ? ngh?
Avatar Wed. 12/12/18 10:31pm Franco Twinkie:

Jenny, I have to ask, is Larry good about putting away his records?
Avatar Wed. 12/12/18 10:32pm Erica:

Hi Jenny. I was just being respectful.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 12/12/18 10:33pm Funky16Corners:

@Franco - Uh oh....
  Wed. 12/12/18 10:34pm cupcakejenny:

No problem. And his records are his business. I have no idea if he puts them away. He does keep it pretty neat though.
Avatar Wed. 12/12/18 10:34pm northguineahills:

@chresti: No, but compared to male expectations in Mexican machimo culture, I have some effeminate traits.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 12/12/18 10:34pm Funky16Corners:

They take up an inordinately large amount of the square footage of the house
  Wed. 12/12/18 10:35pm cupcakejenny:

As long as he stays out of my yarn, I stay out of his records :D
Avatar Wed. 12/12/18 10:35pm Franco Twinkie:

Erica, I thought you were been funny. kind of like on Leave it to Beaver when the boys say "Yes Miss Landers."
  Wed. 12/12/18 10:35pm cupcakejenny:

Who else wants to know all of Larry’s secrets?
Avatar Wed. 12/12/18 10:36pm northguineahills:

Wife may be really liberal (more then I, if that's possible), but it's hard to shake a lifetime of Mexican culture and Catholic school.
Avatar Wed. 12/12/18 10:36pm Erica:

Gee Wally, I mean Franco. Nah.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 12/12/18 10:36pm Funky16Corners:

Eddie Haskell style. "That's a lovely housecoat you're wearing Mrs Cleaver!"
  Wed. 12/12/18 10:37pm cupcakejenny:

That’s ok. Little people call me Mrs Grogan or Mrs Broken or sometimes just Grogan all day.
Avatar Wed. 12/12/18 10:38pm Franco Twinkie:

I was thinking Larry Mondello. Kind of befuddled and guilty.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 12/12/18 10:39pm Funky16Corners:

It all comes around, now that the love child of Clarence Rutherford and Eddie Haskell is in the White House
Avatar Wed. 12/12/18 10:39pm Erica:

Mrs. Broken. LOL! Sorry but why?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 12/12/18 10:41pm Funky16Corners:

ESL kids, many of whom don't speak English fluently, mispronouncing Grogan
  Wed. 12/12/18 10:42pm cupcakejenny:

:D I teach a lot of Russian speakers, esp in Kindergarten. Tiny little munchkins with Russian accents. It’s adorable.

Donald Trump climbs the billboard on a dare to see if there is actually soup in the giant bowl and falls in.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 12/12/18 10:43pm Funky16Corners:

LOL!
Avatar Wed. 12/12/18 10:44pm Erica:

Aww that is so cute Jenny. Haha Franco! I would love to see Trump do that.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 12/12/18 10:45pm Funky16Corners:

Trump invites a hobo into the White House to take a bath and he leaves in one of Pence's suits
Avatar Wed. 12/12/18 10:45pm Erica:

ROFL!
Avatar Wed. 12/12/18 10:45pm Jeff Ash:

That Contours cut kinda sounds like Leon Haywood's "Baby Reconsider."
Avatar Wed. 12/12/18 10:46pm Jeff Ash:

This Little Carl Carlton single is on my iPod for working out!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 12/12/18 10:46pm Funky16Corners:

Got the right beat!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 12/12/18 10:47pm Funky16Corners:

BTW That Leon Haywood is also a big Northern record
Avatar Wed. 12/12/18 10:48pm Franco Twinkie:

Did they do First I Look At The Purse?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 12/12/18 10:50pm Funky16Corners:

They did
Avatar Wed. 12/12/18 10:51pm Franco Twinkie:

I see in my minds eye in one of those teetering piles!
Avatar Wed. 12/12/18 10:54pm Franco Twinkie:

Oh man! This is the shit!
Avatar Wed. 12/12/18 10:55pm Erica:

1972? Sounds like it's from the mid-60s
Avatar Wed. 12/12/18 11:01pm Erica:

A re-issue. That explains it.
  Wed. 12/12/18 11:01pm chresti:

Ah yeah- The Funk Bros!

This is a bunch of white guys from Central Pennsylvania!

Lots of good music left!
  Wed. 12/12/18 11:20pm rw:

I'm enjoying the idea that Tami Lynn is a bunch of white guys from Central Pennsylvania, but I'm pretty sure you were referencing Magnificent Men.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 12/12/18 11:21pm Funky16Corners:

I was indeed, but that is an interesting thought
  Wed. 12/12/18 11:23pm chresti:

What a set!
Avatar Wed. 12/12/18 11:24pm Franco Twinkie:

Shades of Bobby Hebb, or is the other way around?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 12/12/18 11:24pm Funky16Corners:

Thanks!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 12/12/18 11:28pm Funky16Corners:

@Franco - Bland predates Hebb, and while not a mainstream hitmaker, was HUGE in the black community and on R&B Radio
  Wed. 12/12/18 11:29pm chresti:

Shoes, once so true, I love you...
Avatar Wed. 12/12/18 11:36pm Franco Twinkie:

Pitty The Fool. one of my favorites. Bobby Bland's album jackets are great too! Call On Me, with all the smoochie babes floating around Bobby. But One Step From The Blues where he appears to be walking into a dentist office on La Brea Ave. is the best!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 12/12/18 11:38pm Funky16Corners:

Bobby was great. Such an amazing singer.
Avatar Wed. 12/12/18 11:55pm Erica:

Wow that was a great show.
