The H&H Car Wash and Coffee Shop (5000) January 27, 2012

Posted by Michael in Family.

So, for post #5,000, let’s pause and celebrate what America, and life, is really supposed to be about.


1. BrewFan - January 27, 2012

Amen. Great 5,000th main page comment.

2. skinbad - January 27, 2012

Congratulations Michael. I hope your next 5,000 are twice as profitable.

3. geoff - January 27, 2012

Congratulations, IBers! That’s an Aceload!

4. Mitchell - January 27, 2012

♪ Out in the west Texas town of El Paso,
I fell in love with a carwash & grill…♫

5. scott - January 27, 2012

Pretty cool Michael.

6. Retired Geezer - January 27, 2012

I’m glad Michael posted the 5000th post, since he’s done most of the work and heavy lifting.

*sends a manly Harley highfive towards Texas*

♪ Breakfast would find me in H&H Carwash,
Bacon would pop and the buffers would whirl…♫

8. lauraw - January 27, 2012

When I was a little kid in Hartford in the 70’s, there was a business off-downtown. Fried chickens and transmissions were their game.

I believe they sold both, and serviced one.

9. lauraw - January 27, 2012

♪Blacker than night was the tar on my bumper,
Wicked and evil the bugs on my grille. …♫

There was a full-service gas station on west Ross ave. in downtown Dallas back in the early 80s, that also served up Chinese food.

“With Fillup You Get Two Eggroll”

They were pretty good.

5000 posts. Holy moly, that’s a lot of silly shit, ain’t it?

11. geoff - January 27, 2012

Holy moly, that’s a lot of silly shit, ain’t it?

Speak for yourself. My posts were a lot of well-researched silly shit.

12. daveintexas - January 27, 2012

ok OKAAAAY. My shit was silly.

That was a really neat video Michael. I grew up watching Bob Phillips do these things, from way back in the early 70s when he did a bit called “4-Country Reporter”, he was with a CBS affiliate in Dallas, KDFW. “4” was channel 4 on the TV dial, back then Dallas had 3 major network stations and a couple of UHF broadcasters. Hard to believe, back in the days before cable.

He’s been doing these “Texas” stories for 40 years.

13. Michael - January 27, 2012

My posts were a lot of well-researched silly shit.

Indeed they were.

However, I claim top honors for getting an Instalanche and a link from Protein Wisdom and a link from Wizbang for one post, our best traffic day ever. I really worked on that post for more than ten minutes (The Poverty Brand™).

*smug smile*

Also, Geoff, your posts have never been linked by Japanese porn sites, because you overlooked the traffic potential of Swedish bewbs. I did not make that mistake.

*huge grin*

You need to jazz up the research and graphs.

♪ The mud was deep on my magnesium wheels,
I tried to clean but in in vain, I could tell…♫

15. osoloco - January 27, 2012

Congratulations on post 5000. Pretty sure I lurked for 4500 of them. Maybe more.

16. Retired Geezer - January 27, 2012

I saw the white puff of smoke from the fryer
I felt the heartburn down deep in my chest

(can’t figger out how to make the note thingy)

17. lauraw - January 28, 2012

Me neither RG. I just did copypasta from Mitchell.

18. daveintexas - January 28, 2012

I don’t think the Mac OS supports cut and paste.

19. Michael - January 28, 2012

♪ ♫

Hold down Alt+13 and Alt+14. On my computer, it only works with the number pad, not the numbers on the top row.

20. lauraw - January 28, 2012

♪ ♫ One day a wild young cowboy came in,
Wild and cutting in line.
laughing and milling,
Syrup he was spilling
On lovely Wilhelmina,
The car that I loved. ♪ ♫

21. Retired Geezer - January 28, 2012

♫ Off to my left I see ten mounted cowboys.
Off to my right ride a dozen or more.
Wild thoughts that raced through my mind as I stood there
I wonder who pays for the feed for those nags ♫

22. Retired Geezer - January 28, 2012

Hold down Alt+13 and Alt+14

*Looks in vain for the 13 and 14 keys.

*decides it must be near the ‘Any Key’.

23. TXMarko - January 29, 2012

Woot! Congrats Michael !!

24. Russ from Winterset - January 29, 2012

I haven’t thought of this one for years, but now that we’re “riffing” on Marty Robbins, here’s one of the funniest things I can remember from the old days at SNL. Or maybe it was just on a TV special. Anyway, Steve Martin & Monkeys:

25. Lipstick - January 29, 2012

5,000?! Congratulations to us!

26. Lipstick - January 29, 2012

Well, to me mostly, but I let you guys help.

27. joe buzz - January 30, 2012

Congrats Yall!

28. Lipstick - January 30, 2012

Thank you Joe. Don’t forget the little people, i.e., all the rest of the unimportant slackers here.
