In yo face! Larry!

 

When our friend Donna from Greensboro came down Tuesday for the Pour House Birthday show she gave me a great gift also. She spent the night with us and just before retiring she gave me a really cool Elvis birthday card with a gift card inside to Wal-Mart. Hell yeah! My head was spinning at the possibilities of a $50 Wal-Mart free-for-all! Let's see I could be nice and buy my family stuff with it, naaaah! Bah humbug to that! I decided to selfishly waste it on myself. Hopefully, I could pick up some wind pants for riding my bike in the cold weather and maybe a few other choice items. Then it occured to me that maybe I could find one of those tall tool box thingys. I knew it would cost a little more but maybe they would have something close to that price range that I might would pitch in for. Ya see, my buddy Larry came over Sunday to help put in my new dishwasher and I was embarrassed that every time he would ask for a certain tool it would take about 10 minutes for me to find the damn thing. Hell, a dishwasher...don't you just pull out a cabinet and slide it in? Tools? Who knew? We (he) finally got it in after about an hour had accumulated of me just looking for tools. So anyway, to make a long story longer, I DID find a tall tool box thingy and I'm in the process of loading that sucka up with every tool I can find in my house, car and out in the yard. And it only took about 30 minutes to find the tools to put it together with! So IN YO FACE, LARRY!

how 'bout the 3 walks up to Winstead Grocery, or the 15 minutes trying to find battries for your broke-ass flashlight, or runnin' the drop cord for the floor lamp cause every circuit in the kitchin's turned off!
