SORRY GIRL - Bro's stick together, through thick & thin.
- John likes his '64 GTO, which is smart & cool...in my books
- he's into high performance Dodge's / for example - with V10 Viper motors...Vroom-Vroom, adrenaline rush...
- sometimes I want Kubota orange, bc l'd like a 4x4 small tractor with FEL (aka front end loader)
NICE TRY SP...didn't work sweet pea, I don't get roped in that easy...LOL

Fine!

Changing the subject, cuz I can.

Neighbor from 3 properties East came soliciting for money to fix the road.

I am okay with that. He has the equipment to do the job.

However, that means the slouch neighbors would tear the contributor's side up because the, trash, non-contributors would be using it and tearing it up. Because... Can't finish my thought, as I might get banned from DT.

This is like living on the wrong side of the tracks.

The good neighbors are on my side of the road. Trash lives on the other side.

Okay I feel better now.

By the way, Bobbi, the Bobcat, would eat my girls. Glad he/she is somewhere else with a bright future!

Joke of the Day
Subject: Male Reasoning verse Females

Male logic... flawless

This a conversation between a man and his wife. Please note that she asks five or six questions which he answered quite simply, but then she is speechless after answering only one question. l bet this happens more often than not to most husbands out there:

Woman: Do you drink beer?

Man: Yes

Woman: How many beers a day?

Man: Usually about three

Woman: How much do you pay per beer?

Man: $5.00 which includes a tip (this is where it gets scary!)

Woman: And how long have you been drinking?

Man: About 20 years, I suppose

Woman: So a beer costs $5 and you have three beers a day which puts your spending each month at $450.
In one year, it would be approximately $5400 correct?

Man: Correct

Woman: If in 1 year you spend $5400, not accounting for inflation, the past 20 years puts your spending at $108,000 correct?

Man: Correct

Woman: Do you know that if you didn't drink so much beer, that money could have been put in a step-up interest savings account and after accounting for compound interest for the past 20 years, you could have now bought something special like a small airplane or a rare muscle car?

Man: Do you drink beer?

Woman: No.

Man: Where's your muscle car?

Maelstrom, not Maelstorm. Sp.

And I forgot these words: "turbulence, tumult, turmoil, disorder, disarray, chaos, confusion, upheaval, pandemonium, bedlam" (synonyms for maelstrom.)

So many ways to describe this thread.

LOL Mel... You are almost as bad as my wife. She knows that there are two things in the current tech age that I refuse to participate in. One is viewing photos on a phone and the other is getting all that over some dumb half ass cartoon character trying to raise my interest.

Well, there are actually about a dozen more, but I won't laundry list them. Social media is at the top of my (laundry) list.

Yes... i was happier in the 60's. 4 network TV stations and if you were lucky, 2 UHF. Ball games on transistor radios. I miss rotary phones and vinyl records. Cars/trucks should not be computers on wheels. Homes should not talk at you. Gasoline should not have ethanol in it.

My list goes on Ad Infinitum.

I am quite the Luddite I guess.

STJ!

My iPhone is my wife's 3-4 yo hand me down. It was free! I use it for exactly 3 things

-Making calls
-Receiving calls
-The occasional text

I finally got a cell phone, 3 years ago and love it...Apple products rock.
- had an Android one first & software was a POS to learn
- after screen cracked, went to an Apple 5s and software is so user friendly
- 12 pixel camera, is quite remarkable, and use it daily / phone is always in my pocket
- text daily with my twin brother & we chat almost every time he drives to/from work
- my phone probably has 500 contacts, my personal yellow pages...I only look up a number once
I have one DT friend that is like my pen-pall...using our iphones, we text doggy, animal pics. and share stories.

The 60-70's was the best decades, for many reasons:
- I was in mid public school age, when the Beatles aired on the Ed Sullivan show...how neat was that !!
- gas was 50 cents a Canadian gallon, not $6.00/L (like it is now)
- paid for 1/2 my first year College tuition, by flipping a 1948 Dodge Fargo delivery truck
- that was during the van custom craze with shag rug interior
- in HS & College, my car had farm plates & vehicle insurance was $94/year
- put myself through College, working a summer job & every Saturday (for spending money)
- my first muscle car ('65 Chevelle 2 door post) cost me 5 weeks pay...to drive a sweet ride
- back in those times, a new house was $15,000
Taxes were low and life was easy.

One Visa card for 40 years (with out of province insurance) & one gas card for extra points.
Still no Debit card.
Just joined FaceBook, a month ago, but I don't usually post...just read stuff & watch some short videos.

^^ Went out to supper with son and his business partner, few years ago / and they laughed their head off.
- because this Dad resists technology / and they co-own an IT digital marketing company
- good job our son, grew up with video games / people at work use to say, it will ruin him...LOL
- now the 2 of them work with some Fortune 500 companies & currently employ 20 professional staff
It's 10x harder now, to be successful.

@ BM67

When I was a kid, in the summers, I worked on a dude ranch/hunting lodge in the upper LP of Michigan. I frequently hauled the hay wagon back from the fields. A sweet easy job.

One morning, I got pulled over by a local sheriff for whatever reason. He told me that I was overloaded and wanted to see my registration (none), insurance (none) and drivers license (none).

He told me that I really needed to get a drivers license (farm) and let me go. I was driving a 1959 International p/u that we called the "hemi" because it rocked a tractor muffler and was loud as hell.

I had just turned 14 yo. LOL

JTL

Edit to say, I should mention time that while rolling back from the pole barn one day, I side swiped a tree and ripped the bed off the hay trailer. Hey! I was 14! Fortunately, it was unloaded.

^^ Great old stories JTL...enjoyed them.

When we were 15, during the summer...built a Camping & Ski-Doo shack out of a 10x12 ft. old chicken coop.
- neighbor kids 2nd farm with trout stream was 3-4 miles away
- so we legally drove the farm tractor with utility trailer in tow...to hold the kids, with chainsaw & a pound of nails
- after 6 weeks of daily work on the edge of a bush, our Party Shack was all finished...during summer break
- with bunk beds, wood stove and corner table...it was a cozy & dry shelter, in the wilderness
Our 1st winter bush party was announced on a Monday in HS, that Friday winters night...30 sleds showed up.
- the male/girl ratio was close to 50%...so a huge success

My Dad left home in the 1940's at age 15, and started driving a big stake truck...taking cattle to market.
- first stop by a cop, Dad was young and 140# soaking wet
- cop thought Dad was driving without a license, my pops now 16, had just got his drivers license & pulled it out
- Dad even told the police man, "good job you didn't pull me over, last year"...HeHe

I was 17 when I worked at the local creamery, did building maintenance (mostly painting & cutting grass).
- once a week I had to drive an old 10 Ton Truck we called the Honey Wagon
- it had air brakes and a Hi-Low manual transmission with a bad clutch
- I had just learned to drive a standard, on the plants Dodge 1/2 ton
- I drove it out of town, to dump liquid waste in the county dump
- I was given 2 minutes of verbal operating instructions & handed the keys
^^ New tasks were learned at a rapid rate, nobody was holding your hand / in those days, just took responsibility.

Chicken Talk:
The creamery job paid $3.25/hour and a local chicken farmer needed extra help...one night every 6 weeks.
- the farmer was paying $3.50/hour and my brother and I though...how bad could it be...LOL
- 1000's of chickens had to be put on two tractor trailers, all in wooden boxes
- 3 birds in each hand...so 6 chickens delivered outside & stuffed in ventilated boxes
- started at 9pm / finished at 3:30am...made $23 that night, in Grade12
- ones shoulders ached from the slugging weight over a long walk outside
- the bird sh*t stunk, and I grew up on a beef & pig farm...so that says a lot
- at 3:30 in the morning, the wife had prepared a sit down meal of sandwiches
- tried to scrub the stink off my hands, but they wouldn't clean up...her old bar of soap, was crap
- every time I put a sandwich up to & under my nose...I wanted to throw up
- plus she used margarine instead of butter...and that was another gagging point, for me
6 weeks later the chicken farmer called mom on our party line, he had another night for cheap labor help.
- my brother and I told mom, tell him NO...we busy (aka No F'Nway)

In Louisiana, you could get your learner’ permit at 14.5 years and your license when you turned 15. You could also drink (legally) when you turned 18.

I had a $1000/year scholarship at my state university....it actually completely paid for both tuition and books for the whole year. Not enough for room and board, but I lived with my parents until I got married at 20, so that was no big deal. Married student’s apartment rent was $99/month for two good-sized bedrooms, full bath, another room big enough for both sitting and a large dining table (sat 6 quite comfortably, 10 in a pinch)--a tiny kitchen was the only drawback.

The car I learned to drive on was an automatic--I learned stick shift half-way through college. My “favorite” memory of that process was stalling in the middle of a four-way stop, bucking the car as I tried to start it and get going again, and screaming/cursing/whatever because there were cars at each stop-sign waiting for me to get out of the way.

I worked at a vet’s office on Sundays doing receptionist work. I remember one day a lady came in (I was only about 16 and young looking) who was terribly embarrassed when I asked her why she was there. She finally leaned over the counter and whispered “there’s something wrong with his.....organ."
