Move or Stay?|
Do you wnat to move or stay where you are?
That was the question posed to me three weeks ago, when I arrived home from work.
What are you talking about? I asked the wife.
She went on to inform me, that our landlord, gave us two options...either move within 30 days, or try and purchase our rental home. (The owners want to sell the property and take out their equity-can't say I blame them).
It's a long story, why we are still renting at retirement age, but suffice it to say that an injury some time ago and a long rehab., put us in dire straights. It wasn't comforting to start from...
I'M BAAACK!-After a five year hiatus, I'm back to add more fun to my previious long running blog. Since that time, I've become semi-retired, have divested myself of a lot of time consuming stuff, and decided to concentrate on one blog and some other writing.

At one side of the aisle, is the Halloween display. A mummy stands guard, high atop an...
Take it off-Conclusion
About fifteen minutes later, I spotted the elderly gentleman and his wife, as they came back out the front door of Home Depot. They immediately headed back towards the weedeater.
I watched as the old man, lifted up the machine again, some twenty minutes after his initial inspection. I focused on his movements as he swapped the weedeater end to end and inspected the line.
Finally, I couldn't stand it any longer. I left the comfort of my shade and sauntered out into the hundred degree sun to get a fix on the situation.
"Did you find a similar weedeater inside?" I asked.
"We found some...
