reminds me of the widows 2 mites when Jesus pointed out to his disciples that the Jewish leaders had given out of their wealth and the widow had given everything she had out of her poverty.
I don’t know what the situation is now, but a few months ago coins were so short that some banks were actually paying you more than the value of your coins if you brought them in.
For the benefit of the younger generation, back before the turn of the century bathroom plumbing was such that flushing the toilet would divert the cold water from the shower so if someone was taking a shower at the time they’d get scalded from the hot water. Bathroom plumbing was redone over 20 years ago so this no longer happens, but there may be a few older homes that haven’t updated their plumbing.
I never drank it because I couldn’t stand the taste, I tried developing a taste for it when I was in college but no amount of cream or sugar could get me past that first sip. Kind of a shame since I love the smell of fresh roast coffee, I just can’t stand the taste.
I lucked out on the vacine, I live in section 8 housing with many older/disabled recidents so they sent a team to us about 6 weeks ago.
to misquote Shrek, “Better in than out.”
trying to stilt walk through a muddy forest is an accident waiting to happen. A sawbuck says the stilts gets stuck in the first track and the boys belly flop in the mud.
I remember a line for the men’s room in the original “Coming to America.”
When I was a paperboy I had one customer who was 2 months behind on their bill, which is a lot of money for a teenager. One day when I was out collecting I got to their house and I noticed that someone was stretched out on the couch so I got excited because someone was finally home so I’d be able to get my money. But they didn’t move when I knocked on the door (for future refererence the couch was in plain view through their picture window and their curtain was fully drawn). After 3 attempts at knocking on the door of the front porch I realized that they must be asleep and didn’t hear me knocking so I started to turn to go when I saw their dog walk into the living room and come up to press his nose against the picture window. For a second I was torn, I didn’t really want to wake someone up from their nap, but this was the first time I’d seen anyone home in 2 months, so I tapped on the glass and the dog started barking his head off. I turned to look at the couch and I saw 2 people jump off the couch and run into another room, I didn’t have a good look, but it looked like a man and a woman and they were both grabbing at things to cover up as they scooted out of the living room.When the guy came to the door a couple minutes later in a robe I tried to collect for the 2 months he owed but he canceled the paper and told me to come back Weds because he didn’t have any money on him. So I went back Weds, no one home, Thurs, no one home, Friday, no one home, a week later, no one home, 2 weeks later, no one home. 3 weeks later I’m riding by and I see 2 cars parked in the driveway so I went up and knocked on the door. An older man I’d never seen before answers the door, sees my paper bag and says, “I’m so glad you’re here, we just moved in and we want home delivery.” So, I got a new customer who always paid on time, but lost out on the 2 months the other customer owed me.
everyone should remember Typhode Mary, she never had typhis, but still managed to pass it to several families she worked for.
