    That’s what’s commonly known as ‘losing compression.’

    They weigh me. I hand the nursie my wallet, I slide the slider to my weight, she writes it down. She asks me why I did the wallet thing. I say “Well, there’s over four hundred dollars in there plus forty thousand in credit. That’s heavy stuff right there !”
    I get the weirdest look(s)…

    A junior HS English class ‘composition’ required something like a thousand words back in 1951, and the best I could come up with was a story that I modeled after the Mark Twain style of ‘telling’.. Got me the embarrassment of reading it in fronta the class, and an attempt of a beating by members of the football team, “because I waz too dam smart for my britches” (somewhat similar the problem young blacks face from their dumb-ass peers of today) but one doesn’t make LtCol by working at mill-jobs in a small town and dying early of the chemicals and work-dangers of the same. A small win for me, but not really heart-felt.

    The difference between Hi-class wines and Plugger wines is that in NY State, they dispense it in 5 Liter boxes… Here in FL,
    they only ‘allow’ the same stuff in THREE liter boxes. But, it’s
    said that a glass of red a day is good for the heart, and so far, it seems to be working. No sneering from THIS corner !!

    “you just spill them on the floor twice a day and pick them up, one-by-one.”
    Sounds like ye olde “52 pick-up” diet.. toss a deck of cards on the floor and pick ’em up one at a time. Waz popular about the time Howdy Doody waz on Channel 2..or waz it 6 ?

    Rich; I just stop by once in a while to check on your art gum and India Ink supply. I see NC got a ‘last lurch’ at springtime. They’re calling it ‘Sprummer’ in some far-flung places !
