Lay'n back

Before I get into a bunch of nonsense and work issues..............


Yesterday, Dizzy Dick brought up a subject I have delt will most my life. What if??? If you had took a different direction in your life than the ones you did, you would not be where you are today. Only by chance would you ever get back on the same road you are on today.

I were engaged to be married to Phyllis, but married Mary instead. What if I had married Phyllis??? I took a job with The University of Texas. What if I hadn't? I didn't go to college. What if I had? Each "what if" puts you on a different road going to an unknown destination in life. Ponder on that for a while.

Ok...that's plumb enough serious stuff....how bout some nonsense? Boy howdy....yee haa an' all that Billy Bob stuff....git down James Brown....uh huh.

Can't rightly say that I had a restful sleep last night, but I got up feel'n pretty dern good this morn'n. Most mornings I get up with a slight case of sciatica....them pains what run down your leg all the ways to your toenails. If'n ya ain't never experienced this sort of pain, it's a 10 on the pain scale.

Oh....while I think bout it, I stapled my hand the other day. I were look'n a a staple gun I was gonna use to staple some carpet. I squeezes the handle and "what the hell", I got a half inch long staple embedded in the heel of my hand. Surprisingly I felt no pain....until I pulled it out.

Anyhows.....yesterday I got quite a bit done on the bedroom floor. Although it took me over 6 hours to do what I would normally do in 2 hours. I took my time, took my breaks and protected my back. I may just finish that job up today....only bout 10 more square feets to install. "Then what ya gonna do Billy Bob"???

  2. That staple puncture looks like a snake bite. You can tell everyone that a poisonous snake bit you and it died. You were just too bitter (grin) Seriously, maybe you need a tetanus shot.

  4. Talking about choices we make, I always follow the advice of Yogi Berra and when I come to the fork in the road I take it. Oh and quit shootin yourself.

    I forgot sumpin'.. Once I was hangin' cornice on a new house and stupidly 'backed up the outside rafter with my shin to hold it still, while I nailed the backing block to it, with a p-new-matic 16 penny nail gun; the nail was 1/4 inch LONGER than the thickness of the 2 boards &
    went plumb into the bone!!! Itz a wonder I didn't fall off'n the house roof;IT HURT LIKE H!
