That is a saying my parents used to share with
their friends in their 40's. Maybe some of you
remember that one! I can sure relate to it now!
Every morning is spent sipping on the coffee mug.
I have one mug with mom in her PJ's, frazzled hair, in the easy chair. Above her it says, "STARTER FLUID". (Thanks to Hallmark for that mug.) It is my favorite one.
I thought when Mark H gets rested up, he could
bottle up and sell some of that energy supply he
has, and pass it around!
I never have been a high energy person, my
husband is. (Opposites attract, but can be
exhausting!) A real night owl here, too. Husband's up at 5am or so. But I agree with
what my Aunt says, "It takes all types to run
this world."
Another saying I picked up from watching the TVLand re-runs, "She's got quite a hitch in her getalong!" Got any favorites?

With getting ready for fire season I have been busy every day. Just mowed the fence line again for the last time (it grew again) this year. Pulled some weeds, Put another 20 yards of sandy loam in the barn and outside the doors. Moved a bunch of things away from the buildings. Parted out my Mighty Mite and painted alot of the parts. Boxed up and sent out a bunch of JD 400 parts. Washed three tractors 2 were in the barn and got all dusty now I will cover them this time. Got my fire pumps set up with all the hoses and spent 28 hours in Fire Fighter Classes the last two weekends!! Man the list goes on, even graded the drive again and cleaned the shop twice because of tearing tractors apart. Now I got to go to Wal-Mart not looking forward to that. Glad it is summer and not driving the school bus that way I have some time off to rest up! Mark H.

Last job of the day was loading a JD MT on a 40 ft trailer pulled by a semi tonight! Darn truck shows up at 8:00pm with this 3 ft high trailer and no ramps! Had to get the neibor and his back hoe to dig a ramp for it then we could load it on the trailer. They are taking it to California from Washington and it will be the only thing on it. They lost money on the load, they charged the new owner 740.00 for the trip and he will come back empty. Boy I hope those fires don't get close to you!! If you keep the bruss, grass and trees trimed you would be OK for wild fires. The peoples places that burn have fuel next to there homes and shake roofs. Mark H.

I always liked the Burma Shave signs, but my favorite (can't remember how it was arranged) went for a long ways: "There's no place anywhere near this place anything like this place so this must be the place." :)
Then along came Ladybird and her 300-foot commercial-land-only rules. She's dead but Burma Shave is too.

If you're talking about Ladybird Johnson - she is still alive, but not so well. She had a slight stroke about a month or so ago, and is home recuperating.

DeadCarp - she's alive?    Posted 06-25-2002 at 20:17:24       [Reply]  [No Email]
Jeez, she'd better speak up once in awhile, otherwise i'll blame her for everything! (Sorry Ladybird, you wuz always my favorite of Lyndon's wives :)

Beautifcation I believe She called it.
As tha old sayin goes, "Tha road ta He!! is paved with good intentions" or, It takes years of hard work to undo tha bad done by tha dogooders.

May Burma Shave live long in Our memories!
And may We long mourn It's demise.
