Well, first of all Donna's brother is doing as well as can be expected, he's griping alot so he's OK!! Donna is doing fine, she's gonna help me go clean a couple of furnaces today.
The marriage counselor says he thinks he can save our marriage if she don't leave me alone for a long time to come!
Now, then about that Joke? yep I'm blond, and did it say women? NO!! Maybe the guilty are protesting a bit too much?? hehehehe,
And another thing, I thought it was a double whammy being a truck driver/farmer, but that aint nothin compared to bein a polish/blond/AGGIE!! Thats kind of like suicide by nail clippers, forever and painfull!(grin)Sure hope Dennis finds a cure for that case of skillet rash,, maybe a soothing massage from S,, never mind.
Tammy if you get something started with all this painting and fixin, I'm call DJ and seeing if his outfit is hiring, Thats a boy who know how to avoid a list.

Glad to hear that Donna's brother is gripping and doing as well as can be expected.

How many furnaces do you have left to clean? What type of furnaces are you cleaning. The only picture I have in my mind is of the old coal furnaces that we had in the stone ages. Talk about a mess cleaning them out. WOW!! I am positive though they are not coal furnaces, I don't think there are any of those around.

I stand corrected about the blonde jokes, never thought that they could relate to men DUH - puts a whole new perspective on that. Thanks for setting me straight.

Tell Donna I said Hi!!

I have a sideline business of cleaning OIL furnaces, I had the list down to 4, but everytime I do one, I get 2 more calls??? Sooo the total list grows year to year.
We try to hold a small list of 25-30 to build on when I retire, then I can let the list grow a little.
There are lots of coal furnaces around here, we are literally on the edge of the coal fields of this area of PA. 2 miles to the east you can still go pick lump coal if you wanted to. And about 10 miles east of here, stands what was once listed as the largest man made mountain in the country, it is nothing more than a culm bank from the mines at Shamokin.

Thanks for the return post, so there are still coal furnances around. I guess where you are from that would be sense DUH. When do you start with the maple syrup? I wish I could be there to help, I know it is hard work but it still sounds like fun when you get the REAL product!!

Ron/PA...also glad to hear that Donna's brother is doing okay! You made me think to soon this morning I had thought that DJ just liked his job now I know he likes getting away from me...I mean the "list"...
He will call and ask what I am doing and when I tell him he is okay but, when I tell him I am piddling he gets scared cause he knows I am up to something that will really cause him more work when he gets home. He ask me yesterday what I was doing and I told him I was piddling, and he said, tell me what you are doing cause he knows if I am piddling I am up to no good!! I just want to surprise him!! (smile)
