Toy Story Funday Football Oct 1, 2023

Disney+, ESPN+ to host an animated, ‘Toy Story’-themed NFL game on October 1

“The event, titled “Toy Story Funday Football,” will stream on Disney+, ESPN+ and NFL+ (mobile only) on October 1 at 9:30 a.m. ET. It will air the same time as the real NFL International Series game, which takes place at Wembley Stadium in London.”

“Toy Story Funday Football” will replicate on-the-field gameplay with animated Falcon and Jaguar players — who don’t have faces, for some reason – running around on a traditional-looking field in Andy’s room. Viewers can watch every run, pass and score in real time through “state-of-the-art tracking technology,” wrote ESPN in a press release, enabled by the NFL’s Next Gen Stats player tracking data and AI-based visualization company Beyond Sports.”

Que Pasa?

For the purposes of this OP Que Pasa? Is the Mexican restaurant I am currently at in Rapid City, SD.

I came because of their billboards on west bound I-90 approaching Rapid City.

Specifically this one:

Mexican food so good Donald Trump would build a wall around it!

It’s pretty good

I am having chips and salsa
Taquitos- chicken with a “Pablano pesto”, lime crema and guacamole.
And a Bud light

Hurts donut?

Man, what a first week in the NFL???

Tonight. That was a tough game. Josh threw 3 Int!!!!

KC on Thursday
San Fran!!!

Hurts is my QB in DU fantasy
The defense got ALL the fantasy points this week. Aaargh! Lol


This is precious!
Takes me back a few years. So many of us grew up with this wonderful cast.


DU Fantasy football draft

I got a D+ on my draft. Hahaha!

Called me out on 4 13 week byes (not all starters)
And another choice…
But when people pick the players you want what are ya gonna do!?

We will see how it goes.
The projection is 6-8-0
I was better than that last year with a worse starting line up.

Looking forward to Thursday and the rest of regular season, too. Have fun out there!

Matriculating MO

Late summer mushroom haul

I stumbled upon a large cache of Chanterelles last evening. In the back yard of the AL Post I work at. Probably $100 worth! So excited but won’t get to prepare any until at least Monday evening due to double shift today and work and party/bbq tomorrow. Safely stored in brown paper in the crisper till I get to ATTACK!

Leaves time for you all to share fave chanterelle recipes.

Going back to Kansas City

I did that recently. From AK.

Heard this the first time the night before I left for KC from AK. Stupid weird.


Desperate for housing - KCMO Northland

I recently moved back to KC MO area from Alaska to be nearer to my grandchildren.

I could not rent an apartment due to no proof of income upon my arrival. (Had proof only from AK and was not accepted). I now have proof of income but I guess due to the time of year…affordability is a huge barrier. Apartment complexes price fix on demand.

I found a roommate situation at the end of July. Moved in and one month later had to vacate due to my roommate having a mental health breakdown. It was bad and I packed my belongings within an hour and got the eff out!!! So, I am back living with my good friend but can’t stay here long.

So many scams out there for housing it is scary.

If you know of a rental property in Gladstone, Liberty, Claycomo or that area I would appreciate a contact.

Yesterday, I drove to ten different complexes. So much lying and bait and switch crap my head was about to explode. Example: $895 one bed unit online was $1100 when I arrived on site. Example: Available units…arrive on site and they say that available units are months out-Nov/Dec
(Why not say join waiting list???). Example: House I called on and got appointment to see was actually for sale not for rent (Realtors will do ANYTHING to get a showing-ffs!)
Example: another company texted me “ are you REALLY interested?” WTAF???
Number turned out to be from Lubbock TX.

The above examples are just a few I have had to deal with and it scares me that I cannot find housing.

Right now I am desperately seeking a single family dwelling or apartment that is actually available, at a price of $700-$1000.

Thank you for ANY leads.
