Miss me? Today is normally GF’s day to do the thread, I’ve been up most of the night with one of my cats, thought I’d drop in on the thread and throw down a gif or two, didn’t see a thread so I threw one together real fast. Words are limited so I can hit the publish button, start posting gifs and pay attention to my pet. Tomorrow’s words no one reads will be more comprehensive. Time to carry on with our news and links open thread full of beer recommendations, nap strategies, crock pot and smoker recipes. Drop by for some fan wisdom, snark and have a cup of coffee.

Again, we all know the rules, but in case someone is new:
-No discussion of politics or religion
-No feeding of the trolls
-This isn’t a male version of The View, so leave the gender hatred at the door
-Keep the bad language to a minimum (using the spoiler tags, if you must)
-Speaking of which, if discussing a newer show or movie, please use spoiler tags
-No pictures that could get someone fired or in serious trouble with their employer
-If you can’t disagree in a civil manner, feel free to go away
-While navigating the open thread, just assume it’s sarcasm.
With that, the beer light is on and the bar is open. Belly up & tie one on. Don’t forget to tip your waiter, try not to annoy him and as always, Welcome Aboard!
