Weekend rants resumed

The holidays are over and I've exhausted my supply of cheer and good will. Let the games begin.
First of all, I think people that own bottled water companies are as crazy as folks that gotta have bread and milk before a snow storm. We've been running for 3 days straight trying to deliver all the loads before the storm, now the customers are calling and saying they expect to be closed for a day or two and won't need their next loads! IDIOTS.
Lets all go fill our gas tanks so we can leave our cars in the garage til the snow's gone! BOB NY, if you're laughing, I'll get even. LOL

It's fairly easy to blame Willy and the Canadagans for our weather, I personally am blaming them for 1 flat tractor tire, and hemmoroids! It's a plot and we all know it. Some day I'll launch a counter strike. Don't laugh Patria, I'm pretty much convinced that Puerto Rico is responsible for my mortage intrest rate, and several football scores that cost me money. Keep braggin about your weather and I'll bring my trashy friends down for a visit.

I could only pray hard enough to have the government "Allow" me to keep and invest "MY" money as I see fit.

AS for the Bush Balls, hey party hardy bubba, ya got the job, celebrate. I don't want MY president celebrating with a keg party, then again I wouldn't allow MY president to consort with Monica!! Well maybe I would if he was married to Hillary.

As for the Bush girls, I agree they shouldn't have given that bull horn salute, they should have targeted the offended countries, and given a good old fashioned single finger salute to them.

JB, I have ammended my will, in the event of my untimely demise, you are to be appointed my successor and continue this post. I like the way you say "Stuff it" in a civilized way, I gotta learn that someday.

I like the news from back east they show a car in around 1 inch of snow, level ground, tires spinning tring to get going?? Then they say such and such place is getting 12 inches of snow but you never see it? Wish they could show some pictures of what there talking about so we could believe them! Mark H.

I got caught in that inch of snow that fell on WEd. and created a mess I never would have believed. Living in Ia for 38 years, snow is no big thing for me. However, friend was taking me to Doc appt and it was snowing when we left at 11. Near the hospital it is all hills, and it was slippery. ALl the roads were frozen slick. Took us 30 min to get a mile. Cars could not get up some of these hills, wrecks all over. Was soo many cars on the road that sanders had a hard time operating. Took SIL two hours to get out of Fredericksburg., a short run to say the least.
Believe me when I say I couldn't imagine so little snow would create such a mess

I guess when you have snow all the time during the winter you have the proper tires, 4X4 and chains in the back if needed. You just get used to driving in it and so do the others around you till you get to the City!! Mark H.

Yesterday I paid a dollar a pound for suet. SUET:(
The stuff they used to give away:( Gotta keep them chickadees, nuthatches and woodpeckers happy.
One thing is for sure, I'll never be totally destitute. There's people willing to pay money for not only water, but also ROCKS. My father is smiling from his lofty perch. Rocks and clean H2O is something we got plenty of in NH.

Ron/PA    Posted 01-22-2005 at 06:44:45       [Reply]  [No Email]
I'll be kind of curious to see what they get for suet come July or August.
I swear that the biggest items I see heading into the cities from our area are water and flat rock from the streams around here. I see where they buy them big goonies that you grow up there. Is there a status symobol to having a rock in your front yard? If there is, I'm a nobleman, or at least a rock rich pauper.

Les    Posted 01-22-2005 at 06:03:48       [Reply]  [No Email]
Tolerable. Things brightened up once the puter decided it did actually have a modem after all. I had to give it a good talking to.

I love car salesmen, they're some of my best customers.
Ya gotta understand that I'm Amish, and car salesmen buy their supply of my transportation byproduct to bestow upon their customers...
Aw Nutz, I hadda say it.
