Think About This One!!! It is short but very interesting!
A car company can move it's factories to Mexico and claim it's a free market.
A toy company can out source to a Chinese subcontractor and claim
it's a free market .
A shoe company can produce its shoes in south east Asia and claim
it's a free market.
A major bank can incorporate in Bermuda to avoid taxes and claim
it's a free market.
We can buy HP Printers made in Mexico. We can buy shirts made in Bangladesh.
We can purchase almost anything we want from 20 different countires.
BUT, heaven help the senior citizens who dare to buy their
Prescription drugs from a Canadian or Mexican pharmacy. That's called
Un-American! And you think the pharmaceutical companies don't have a
Powerful lobby? Think again!
My revolving todo list has been getting longer since the long holiday started.
That means some of my regular list had to take a back seat. I hate it when a plan falls apart.
The good news is I did some small list stuff in between other todo's.
I repaired the hood latch of the P/U, and fixed the parking lights, later in the day.
Tomorrow will be full too. I will go to a funeral at 2pm. That will take up the afternoon. I am just playing wait and see for Monday.
Life is short, break the rules, forgive quickly, kiss slowly, love truly, laugh uncontrollably, and never regret anything that made you smile.
Gas prices has got so high that the Blue Book value of my pickup truck goes up and down depending on how much gas is in it.
I did not get pee'ed off
at any time today, in fact I laughed a lot. It was at times very funny. I got up early and had my lite breakfast.
Then after reading the mail I went to the desk for some paper work. I made out all the due bills. Then a trip to to PO for some 2 cents stamps. OK I'm out, what to do next. I decided to go and get the PU serviced. Remember last time when oil ran down my arms.
I went to Woodstock to let my Friend Tim do it. I got there to find today was his day off. That meant it would be strangers working on it. Well I came back to a shop just up the street and let strangers near home do the work. I ask for a transmission service and their $17.95 oil change special. That was with their bulk oil. I ask that they use Texaco 10w40. It will cost two more dollars per quart. I said I would pay the ten more bucks to get it. I ask if they had a courtesy car to run me home and pick me up. He said sure they would be happy to. I said lets do it.
Then the fun begins. I get a call saying they can't get the hood up. The hood latch pull cable is broke and has been for ages. I tell him about a pull chain I have behind the grille and I was sorry I forgot to tell them about it. He said I will try it. Ten minutes later I get a second call and he said he still couldn't get it open and was going to have to pull it out until they could pick me up later.
Then the service manager call and ask if I want to pay $ 75. to remove the grille and open the hood. NO Sir I don't.
I got on my bicycle and rode in to their shop in about 8 minute and popped the before before they could say hello. After I laugh at them, and again said sorry for not showing you. He started work. In a few minutes he came up to me with the service manage to tell me about transmission care and wear. I asked, are you the one that couldn't open a hood with a broke latch. We all laugh again, that is all but him, and he just grin and went back to work.
I put the bicycle in the back of the truck and watch them do the work.
Then they pulled it up front and it was time to pay. I ask are you charging me for the Texaco oil that didn't get put in the truck.
Because I watch him put bulk oil in it. He turned red in the face and called out to the guy and ask why the hell did you use bulk oil in Mr. Lacys truck, I forgot. I'm glad I had to pedal my butt back over here and watch you guys, still smiling.
The Manager said Mr Lacy this is on me, no charge. I don't business this way. You didn't get what you ask for.
And no oil dripping off my arms.
Back to putting the final touches on the dining room. I'm in my happy place.
Tomorrow is the day I carry Dad to the eye doctor.
I will add link on the left side on the page for
My Albums on photobucket shorty. ( a work in progress )
This morning I went out and found a ftf put out by bad dawg up on the Etowah River.
On the way back I stop by the June GGA meeting site and took some coords for a cache that will go online the weekend of the event. After I got back I had to go pickup some eyedrops for Dad. He has to use them 2 days before he goes to eye Dr. this thursday.
While I was out I got some clip on sun glasses for driving. The sun has been getting to me lately. Then I went to Pikes and got a few plants.
I saw some blue berry plants, the sign said you need two or more different types of the plants. One type was a Climax Blue Berry. It look so happy, I almost got it.
Then work in the yard.
Time to rest now.
It's Monday again!

I hear people say "That Not Funny" but to me it is.
I'm talking about what money does to some people. Remember the quarter glued to the glass counter. I had to laugh when I seen someone trying to get it. A wadded up dollar tied to a fishing line on a windy day in a parking lot is a millon laughs. I've seen people diving under cars with people setting in them. I know they could hear me laughing, but they had to try to catch it.
I knew when I put out the geocache named moolah, that it would be fun to watch. It has lived up to it purpose. I spend the day checking up on moolah. The ammo box is clean.
Like cleaned out, spotless. Well the log and the voodoo doll and a small tool lefted by phat-bak is still there, but not a penny. I read the logs and the last finder was a hunter non-cacher. He wrote that he found it just after a deer kill and he took nothing but as he said borrowed the pen to fill out his deer tag.
I believe him or he wouldn't have logged it. The box was setting out in a clearing about 20 feet from its hidding place. I seen it from about sixty away just as bright as could be. I think he told a hunting buddy about the ammo box with money and he just had to go get it. I all so think he put it out in the open for others to find.
I wish I could have heard the deer camp stories that night.
I have been moving it after each find to keep cheaters at bay. Today I not only moved the ammo-box, I moved all three stages. Starhopping got a new code on May 5th when it was upgraded. All this was done without changing the cache page. So old print outs will work. I did change the small hints.
I added some big time loot that phat-bak give me to put in it some months ago.
It is now a mosty phat-bak cache. Thanks Buddy. I added some wheres George money and a small bag of pocket change.
Moolah has been a hoot. Lets hope the fun continues.

I've had a front porch for many years. That is my belly hanging over my belt.
I still weight 188, but this morning while standing on the scales I lifted my belly with both hands and the weight dropped a few pounds. That means I will be lighter when I lose the belly. No more cake, icecream, beer, chips, piza, honey, and hardly anything else for a week.
This will tickle your funny bone.
1. Never slap a man who's chewing tobacco.
2. Never kick a cow chip on a hot day.
3. There are 2 theories to arguing with a woman...neither works.
4. Never miss a good chance to shut up.
5. Always drink upstream from the herd.
6. If you find yourself in a hole, stop digging.
7. The quickest way to double your money is to fold it and put it back in your pocket.
8. There are three kinds of men: The ones that learn by reading. The few who learn by observation. The rest of them have to pee on the electric fence and find out for themselves.
9. Good judgment comes from experience, and a lot of that comes from bad judgment.
10. If you're riding' ahead of the herd, take a look back every now and then to make sure it's still there.
11. Lettin' the cat outta the bag is a whole lot easier'n puttin' it back.
12. After eating an entire bull, a mountain lion felt so good he started roaring. He kept it up until a hunter came along and shot him. The moral:
When you're full of bull, keep your mouth shut.
About Growing Older...
First ~ Eventually you will reach a point when you stop lying about your age and start bragging about it.
Second ~ The older we get, the fewer things seem worth waiting in line for
Third ~ Some people try to turn back their odometers. Not me, I want people to know "why" I look this way. I've traveled a long way and some of the
roads weren't paved.
Fourth ~ When you are dissatisfied and would like to go back to youth, think of Algebra.
Fifth ~ You kno w you are getting old when everything either dries up or leaks.
Sixth ~ I don't know how I got over the hill without getting to the top.
Seventh ~ One of the many things no one tells you about aging is that it is such a nice change from being young.
Eighth ~ One must wait until evening to see how splendid the day has been.
Ninth ~ Being young is beautiful, but being old is comfortable.
Tenth ~ Long ago when men cursed and beat the ground with sticks, it was called witchcraft. Today it's called golf
And finally ~ If you don't learn to laugh at trouble, you won't have anything to laugh at when you are old.
There are caches waiting to be found.
A blonde pushes her BMW into a gas station. She tells the mechanic it died.
After he works on it for a few minutes, it is idling smoothly.
She says, "What's the story?"
He replies, "Just crap in the carburettor"
She asks, "How often do I have to do that?"
SIA reached number one in the state.
I got a call from him asking me to remove my book marks of his
BIG IGNORE LIST. I shit can it. After all he is the top man now.
I'm eating in diet mode and have been for a few weeks now.
I have stepped up my exercise a couble of notchs too.
My weight is still holding at 188. I think the reason the
weight is so stable is due to being under doctors care for
the past two years and I not packing any excess water in my
body. There is not much fat either. The spare tire is going
down some, and that tells me the weight should begain to drop
