Southern Smiles

My daughter lives in North Carolina and she went to the local Home Depot to see if she could rent a rug cleaner. Seems her son spilled some stuff on her rug and she decided it was time to clean all the rugs during her Spring Cleaning. She wanted something good because they have 4 children, two dogs and two cats. So she explained this to the Home Depot person and he told her of a great rug cleaner he had. He said, "I got a dandy rug cleaner. I went to the junk yard to get a new seat for my car. I found one that had grease on it and blood from the guy bleeding out from the shootout. It took the blood and grease right out." The salesman was pretty excited that it took out that blood and grease. So my daughter decided that that is the rug cleaner for her. She said you only might hear stories like this down South but how else would you know how good the rug cleaner is. That rug cleaner sounded pretty good. What kind of rug cleaner would you use?

The Leg.

I am helping with our 40Th class reunion and came across Walter. He recently lost his leg because of an infection that happened after an operation he had to go through. He was a star athlete in High School. When I first talked to him he was a little down. So I asked him if I could keep "in touch" and call him from time to time. He seemed to like that idea. I called him today and he was in a great mood. Seems he talked to his old coach and his old team was remembered in a recent article in the local newspaper. I felt great after the phone call because his happiness was infectious and uplifting. Sometimes it is good to keep "in touch". Plus I realized a true coach keeps on coaching years after his team graduates. That is pretty special.

Rah Rah Rah!!!

I am not sure how I did it but I am getting a Cheerleading magazine delivered right to my mailbox. I also ended up getting a service for $25 a month attached to my phone bill. The magazine turned out to be free for 12 months and the $25 fee for a shopping club has been removed from my phone bill. I have to be more careful when I reply to junk email I get or pop ups when I am fooling around on the Internet. I know I can block the pop ups but once in a great while I let them filter Thur. I do mess around with a free stuff on line I visit once in awhile so that might explain the Cheerleading Magazine. That must have been one of those days my back was in a lot of pain and I was using those stupid pain killers. Those pain killers do strange things to me so I try to avoid them except in extreme pain days. Oh well! How are you with pop ups and free stuff on the Internet? I hope you a little wiser then I. Anyway have a hug.

I bought a PlayStation Portable to help me get through the winter blahs. Well I had it for about a month and it broke already. I am the opposite of Fonzie. He use to just whack the jukebox and fix it. I look at it and it breaks. So far this year I broke a computer, a copy machine and now the PSP. I give up. Do you fix or break things?
