jb, before the power goes off again (wind and trees don't mix well) I'll lob ya, "Fussing Off', "Fuss Around". As in, while goin' out the front door tell'n my mom, "Me and Tad are going out to fuss around" or answering the question, "What were you doing this afternoon?" "Oh, just fussing off." Somehow the use of that term was within' bounds yet I couln't get away with using, "I had a bitch'n time." Good topic, I'll knock more rust off the ol' memory cells and get back to ya'.
