The place we go most often just reopened.  We've been twice, I've left hefty tips.

@Drew4UTk

Yeah, that couple sounds weird.  Not for their fetishes which I won't judge, but for the lady's pushiness.  I've been approached a couple of different times over the years by swingers, and I've politely declined, and that was that. 

I know you're capable of protecting yourself, and I'd say, keep a wary eye out. 
yeah i have a weird foreboding feel about the whole thing.  i'd rather just go on living the way i want to live and let folks live the way they want to live- hoping if they intersect the regard is mutual... i don't get people who want to force their notions and practices on folks who politely decline. 

i'll tell this story quickly- it's relevant and it's funny (if i can tell it right)... 

I had a tobacco shoppe in greenville nc once, across the street from the ECU stadium.  THAT was a fun job that introduced me to folks of ALL walks of life.  I had a blast doing it.  I also sold cigarettes at wholesale prices with intent to sell bulk to other retailers, but folks figured it out and would come in for a few packs or a carton just as often as I sold cigars or pipes/pipe tobacco.. no, it wasn't a 'head' shop- it was a men's gift and cigar shop... finer wines, craft beers, ect... 

so this lady drove something strange- i can't recall what it was but it was unique and a mess... she would come in, and was always dressed like a sixties flower child gone wrong is the better way to describe it.  after a couple visits i knew what she wanted, so when i saw her pull up i would retrieve it for her and have it at the counter ready to go... at first she was distant and strange... after a while she was chipper, engaging, funny, and i actually looked forward to seeing her. 

she was well known in the community.  people thought her strange- dangerous- weird- and they literally thought she was a witch.  when others were in the shop and she'd come in they'd hush and stare... she wouldn't even notice them.  i was told "she's trying to cast a spell on you!!! she's NOT that nice to anyone!!!"

so.. i asked her one day... "why are folks so stand off from you?".... she laughed and laughed and told me this: She was being overrun by bible toting door to door prophets of some sort... every day they'd come by... then, the kids living around her were always messing around in her garden or playing pranks... it was irritating her.  she said one day she went to a flea market and some lady was there selling strange metal creations- art of some sort- that was to be hung akin to a wind chime......had an 'occult' type style to them... so... she bought some and hung them up in her garden thinking it would keep the birds off her berries.  ... then she noticed the bible toters were wary of those things, and started looking at her strangely- their visits started declining.... then, she found this so valuable she started hanging all kinds of crap around the place.. from hubcaps to whatever she found in her garage or barn that she was capable of suspending from trees... apparently (i never saw it) it was quite the spectacle.  

and... she was just as normal a person as you could ask for except for this practice... she did it so people would leave her alone... and it worked... spectacularly.  she said everyone left her alone.. to the point a couple of ladies she used to walk with who still walk together will be coming down the street talking and laughing loudly just to stop any noise abruptly as they pass, and to start again as soon as they've cleared her property... the mail lady delivering packages will sit at end of driveway and honk the horn until she responds and will quickly drive away after she sees her coming to retrieve it.. 

and....

her plan isn't and wasn't a bad one.  she just might have taken it too far, but.... it worked.

When LSU routed Clemson and raised the College Football Playoff trophy on Jan. 13, it not only claimed its third national championship of the 21st century, but it also finished crafting an argument as one of the most dominant teams of all time.

So how do Joe Burrow and the 2019 Tigers stack up?

The Athletic sought to rank the 25 most dominant college football teams of the past 50 years. As is common in this sport, it’s a subjective ranking, but the goal was to evaluate many objective measures to narrow the list of contenders and compare them to each other. The emphasis is on the word dominant, and ranking 25 teams leaves out more than half of the national champions since 1970, along with numerous other great teams.

First, the pool of possible candidates was narrowed to consider only teams that met one of three criteria:

All national champions (59 teams, including split champions)

All other AP top-five teams that finished with perfect...

sorry, I didn't open it this morning and got busy at work.

I just saw this link on the Huskerpedia page...............

The Athletic* has the 1995 Huskers No. 1 and 1971 Nebraska No. 3 in a ranking of the most dominant college football teams of the past 50 years. And the 1997 team is No. 22.

Enjoying the 94 RB on BTN.  Quick replay, with plays only, no down time.
