It's not often that one accumulates such a variety of unusually named friends and acquaintances, but I cannot think of a finer bunch of people anywhere.

I know I shouldn't really single out any one or two people for special thanks, but I must thank Bud for putting himself out there and sharing a few of his life's faux pas. After all, how many of us can count driving in to a storefront as one of our life's accomplishments! Then there was the snake in the boat...and the little plumbing problem in the apartment building...and the taxi episode...

And so from me to you...

A Very Merry Christmas
And right back at ya big guy. We appreciate you posting another yearly chapter of your adventuresome book here for all to read and enjoy.

Merry Christmas Keith! We've all survived an Apocalypse and several hundred Michael Buble Christmas specials, so it's all uphill from here.

I doubt I would get very far with any of those guys as I am not a person that is "politically correct" in all aspects and my attitude is not conducive with smiling ass-kissin' profiteers that produce those shows.

Here's an example;
This morning I was in a local home center purchasing (among other things) four 1" spring-clamps. I had clamped the four clamps (one on the other) to make them easier to carry along with my other purchases. Using a shopping cart never occurred to me.

I arrived at the check out and as the cashier was finishing with the previous customer I was taking apart my assembly of clamps so that they could be scanned individually when I momentarily and accidently clamped my own finger.

The cashier had her back to me when I rather outwardly spewed "YOU DUMB-ASS"! Referring to my personal level of intelligence.

With my words, she (the cashier) turned to look at me with a look on her face that said "Why are you calling me a dumb-ass? Well of course by that time she hadn't seen me clamp my own finger or release it, and she had no idea what I was actually referring to. She appeared to be insulted by my comment.

I should have never tried to explain (to her) what I had done because my involuntary explanation was only making things worse and burying me deeper. She failed to see the humor in my finger-clamping-episode and she was strictly all-business. By now I was laughing at my finger pain and felt a need to continue to 'talk-it-off'. That's never a good idea. A guy should just shut-up!

As I looked around I noticed others in close proximity were watching me - so I must have said what I said much louder than I thought I had. Hell, I may have even yelled it, now that I think about it.

Well...it hurt dammit!

Bud, I'm going to have to write a book pretty soon on all your adventures!

Bud, I'm glad to hear there is someone else on this earth that swears at themselves when they make a mistake.

I talk to myself a lot these days also. Every once-in-a-while someone I didn't even know was within ear-shot will say; "WHAT"?
I'm sure my face goes to a bright shade of crimson when they do it. Then immediately I ask myself; "Oh crap, I wonder what I said"? "Hope it wasn't vulgar"!

Just five minutes ago I drove into my driveway and because of the snow and ice everywhere I decided to make a wide-ranging-arc around a grassy area of my yard (now covered with snow) so that I could make a straight-in approach to my garage without having to backup and slip and slide on the ice pack. Drove smack into my burn barrel, didn't even see the thing in the dark.

All together now; "DUMB ASS"!!! (Again)
