    IS IT JUST ME?

    Posted on by

    WE have all kinds of things that drive us crazy.  Lately, this isn’t even driving distance, but more like a walk?  I cannot watch the news without wanting to throw something solid through the T.V.  So many examples of SHEER STUPIDITY- supposedly from people who are supposed to be world leaders, and then there are… Read more »

    PLEASE READ THE ENTIRE AD BEFORE YOU REPLY

    Posted on by

    Can we blame it on the educational system or FaceBook? One of the frustrating things about trying to do business in a digital world is that the more technology does for us, the less people want to do for themselves.  A lot of the time when someone replies to an ad, it is often apparent… Read more »

    HAVE ANOTHER BOWL OF STUPID

    Posted on by

    SOME of you may have noticed I sound a little grumpy when I answer the phone.  There are reasons aside from the fact I am generally that way.  You may have caught me elbows deep in something greasy- and not just a cheeseburger.  Your call may have been one in a succession of ‘idiot’ phone… Read more »

    DON’T LET THE GATE HIT YOU

    Posted on by

    MANY A TIME I have been tempted to tell some person “Don’t let the gate hit you on the ass on your way out.”  Most of the time this is the result of dealing with someone who has been watching too many ‘picker’ shows on the television.  Vegas Rat Rods is another ‘bad influence’ on… Read more »

    MYODB

    Posted on by

    With all of the acronyms  texters and tweeters use to qualify their sentiments, my wife and I use the above on a regular basis.  I could say that I coined it quite a few years ago, but you never know what the actual source may be.  My late father in law and I used to… Read more »

    TIME

    Posted on by

    MEMORIES improve with age. Things that weren’t that special at the time assume a more favored place in our memory. When the City of Red Deer insurers declared what happened to my truck an ‘Act of God’ and refused to pay for damages, I pretty much lost interest in the truck.  Having a few decades… Read more »

    APRIL FOOLS!

    Posted on by

    HAPPY EASTER INFIDELS!  Jeff Dunham’s ‘Achmed the Dead Terrorist’s Easter Greeting. The view outside makes me believe this Easter weekend is a joke.  One of the things that I do partly as a result of being old and cheap is that I ‘recycle’ calendars.  With all of the cool pictures, I could not throw them… Read more »

    POST SWAP MEET POST

    Posted on by

      Figure that one out.  While I had to bring ‘The Junkyard Dog’ back home with me, I count the event a success.  I got to catch up with some friends and acquaintances I hadn’t seen in a while.  I handed out a slug of business cards, and I came home with some parts I… Read more »

    SPRING MESSAGE

    Posted on by

    The calendar says Spring is tomorrow.  The view out the window says otherwise.  Nevertheless,  the first hints of a change in seasons in the automotive universe began last weekend with the E-G show and auction. (There was also the Taboo sex show.)  I didn’t see either.  Next up is The Quick Times Swap Meet.  I’m… Read more »

    THE LAST TIME

    Posted on by

    THE LAST TIME…     As we go through life we have many occasions where we can say “The Last Time…”  Last Saturday 16 December 2017 was the last time I ate at The Burger Baron south of Red Deer.  After I placed my order, Sal Klemaledine (the owner of this restaurant- and the Burger Baron chain)… Read more »
