    You go guy...today I went to Victoria Secret to buy my wife something nice. As I held up some under garments that look so small I could not help the feeling that all the woman employees just were staring at me laughing at me. No one came up to help so I left. Now I sit here on Hearth.com when I could be...well you know. ;-)

    Is there some way you could get a little help from Moxie?

    Have you tried contacting Batteries Plus near the Mall . . . perhaps they can repair or recondition the battery . . . or offer a more affordable replacement battery? I know we've had good luck getting affordable stretcher batteries there.

    There isn't enough alcohol in the whole state to mix with a glass of Moxie to make it drinkable.

    Just remember, if you go to the battery store, take a woman with you so that you're not taken for a brainless twit and overcharged. (Get it? overcharged? I crack myself up!)

    Watt? You think I'm trying to generate a problem? Not at all--I'm completely neutral. I just don't want the gang at the store thinking Hoss is dimmer than he is, and shorting him. That's why I suggested he find someone with a pigtail to go in with him and keep the lines of communication open, so they don't socket to him.

    I know I don't have very many posts to ground here, but shouldn't the lines of this thread be insulated against sexist charges?

    I was talking to my girlfriend.
    Told her I was stressed.
    Said I was going off the deep end.
    She said, "God, for once, give it a rest."

    I like Moxie . . . nix that . . . I love Moxie.

    I'm not quite sure about Nate or Hoss . . . starting to wonder if they're really native Mainiacs. ;) :)

    And I wear it proudly, Jake. Thanks. But my GF just rolled her eyes and laughed when she heard the whole story.

    I was serious about Batteries Plus . . . I called today and they said they can rebuild the batteries and the price depends on the brand and voltage.

    He said an 18 volt Ryobi would be around $29.99 with the highest price being $59.99 for a Snap On cordless battery.
