On my way home from the campout I seen some creek names that made me chuckle.
I crossed "She Creek" and a short way down the road I cross "He Creek".
I said to myself cute creek names. About that time I went my a road named "Pool Creek Road. I bet that is where She and He creek join. Next creek I cross was "Dud Creek" and I cracked up.

When you have an "I Hate My Job" day, try this:
On your way home from work, stop at your pharmacy and go to the thermometer section and purchase a rectal thermometer made by Johnson &Johnson.
Be very sure you get this brand. When you get home, lock your doors, draw the curtains and disconnect the phone so you will not be disturbed.
Change into very comfortable clothing, make yourself a cocktail and sit in your favorite chair.
Open the package and remove the thermometer.
Now, carefully place it on a table or a surface so that it will not become chipped or broken.
Now the fun part begins. Take out the literature from the box and read it carefully.
You will notice that in small print there is a statement: "Every Rectal Thermometer made by Johnson &Johnson is personally tested".
Now, close your eyes and repeat out loud five times, "I am so GLAD I do not work in the thermometer quality control department at Johnson &Johnson."
Have a great day!

They is a lot going on this week, I could write a book I guess, but I just put jokes
on here till things get more in order.
Then I was asked twice this week,
What do retired people do all day?
Working people frequently ask retired people what they do to make their days interesting. Well, for example, the other day I went down town and into a shop. I was only there for about 5 minutes and
when I came out there was a cop writing out a parking ticket.
I said to him, "Come on, man, how about giving a retired person a break?" He ignored me and continued writing the ticket. I called him a "Nazi." He glared at me and wrote another ticket for
having worn tires. So I called him a "doughnut eating Gestapo." He finished the second ticket and put it on the windshield with the first. Then he wrote a third ticket. This went on for about 20 minutes. The
more I abused him the more tickets he wrote.
Personally, I didn't care. I came downtown on the bus, and the car that he was putting the tickets on had a bumper sticker that said "Hillary in '08."
I try to have a little fun each day now that I'm retired. It's important to my health.

We all do it by the numbers, right?
The past 60 days of caching for me.
5 attended events logged
But I have visited some of my caches, some caches for a second visit, and so on.
for a total of 47 caches in 60 days. A guess of 3 thousand miles.

From a local Nurse:
Hospital regulations require a wheel chair for patients being discharged. However, while working as a student nurse, I found one elderly gentleman already dressed and sitting on the bed with a suitcase at his feet, who insisted he! Didn't need my help to leave the hospital.
After a chat about rules being rules, he reluctantly let me wheel him to the elevator.
On the way down I asked him if his wife was meeting him.
"I don't know," he said. "She's still upstairs in the bathroom changing out of her hospital gown."
There is a saying that I hear all the time. "Stuff never happens at a good time."
That may be true, but I try to think anytime I can take care of it, it is a good time.
Today the lawn mower needed to be tuned up. I go to the truck to go get parts and the tire that has been leaking down every two or weeks was down just after 6 days.
A bad sign with some long trips coming up. I went and had a new set of tires mounted.
There has been times in the past that I could not have done that without planning and saving it up or do it in time payments.
So today was a good time to get it done. And the lawn mower is running good now.
I am now building a mount for the new fuel pump for Henry.

This is from Ed's, three active member group:
We'd need such things as a formal structure with officers, a PO box, a bank account, filing of annual returns, etc. Yes there would be some work involved but it would be worth it.
I wish him the best with this hard work for geocaching. Go Ed

Deep stuff. I was reading Annie's blog about things that cause life style changes.
That cause me to think about a saying that I like. It is Not my saying. It goes something like this.
"Don't fret about things that you don't have, but rejoice about the things you do have.
You know all them there emails we all get that ask us to pray, warn us, do you believe, miracles,
save this and that, you know what I mean.
Well I got that one of them the other day that I thought reinforced that saying.
I know this is a little bit out is center field, but I am very happy with what I have, In fact I have too much to keep up with.
Now we all know most stats are made up, but still it has some merit. This is part of the email,
It is talking about blessings.
'If you have food in the refrigerator, clothes on your back, a roof overhead and a place to sleep you are richer than 75% of this world. If you have money in the bank, in your wallet, and spare change in a dish, you are among the top 8% of the world's wealthy '
'And if you get this on your own computer, you are part of the 1% in the world who has that opportunity.'
'If you can hold your head up and smile, you are not the norm, you're unique to all those in doubt and despair.'

Bubba goes to the revival and listens to the preacher. After a
while, the preacher asks anyone with needs to come forward and be prayed over.
Bubba gets in line and when it's his turn the preacher says, "Bubba,
what you want me to pray about?" Bubba says, "Preacher, I need you to pray for my hearing."
So the preacher puts one finger in Bubba's ear and the other hand on
top of his head and prays a while. After a few minutes, he removes his hands and says, "Bubba, how's your hearing now?"
Bubba says, "I don't know preacher, it's not until next Wednesday!

John the farmer was in the fertilized egg business. He had several hundred young layers (hens), called "pullets", and ten roosters, whose job it was to fertilize the eggs (for you city folks).
The farmer kept records and any rooster that didn't perform went into the soup pot and was replaced. That took an awful lot of his time, so he bought a set of tiny bells and attached them to his roosters.
Each bell had a different tone so John could tell from a distance which rooster was performing. Now he could sit on the porch and fill out an efficiency report simply by listening to the bells.
The farmer's favorite rooster was old Butch, and a very fine specimen he was, too. But on this particular morning John noticed old Butch s bell hadn't rung at all! John went to investigate.
The other roosters were chasing pullets, bells-a-ringing. The pullets, hearing the roosters coming, would run for cover. But to Farmer John's amazement, old Butch had his bell in his beak, so it couldn't ring. He would sneak up on a pullet, do his job and walk on to the next one.
John was so proud of old Butch, he entered him in the Renfrew County Fair and he became an overnight sensation among the judges. The result...the judges not only awarded old Butch the No Bell Piece Prize but they also awarded him the Pulletsurprise as well.
Clearly old Butch was a politician in the making: Who else but a politician could figure out how to win two of the most highly coveted awards on our planet by being the best at sneaking up on the populace and screwing them when they weren't paying attention?

The Fifty has been of hold for sometime and looking ahead it may be on hold for a while longer. I do still tinker with it.
Yesterday I was going let Allen hear it run. The fuel pump would not pump. A few quick checks, and it had gone south. I do want to keep it running even tho it is on hold. So I now have to make up my mind to which pump I will buy and install. I don't want another one that will just stop for no reason. I may be way off on some back road a long ways from home.
Any who I think I will get a top of the line pump and try that. Holly has some good ones. Things like this is a very good excuse to have a good tool box loaded with a cell phone in the car at all times.
