Ethel

We have a customer where I work named Ethel. Ethel's 91 years young and full of piss and vinegar. Her memory isn't great due to a number of strokes but she's still a riot to be around.

Ethel used to show up when someone could give her a ride because, as she said, "I can't drive anymore because they keep taking my license away!" Well, one day she called down and asked if we could bring her some paint brushes so she could finish a project she was working on, since she lives close we did. Now when Ethel wants to come to the store she calls and asks if we can come pick her up, usually Hootis or I go. She's typically waiting by her garage door and has to triple check that she has everything she needs (walker, purse, garage door opener, etc) then she's ready to rock. She needs a little help getting into the car, refuses to ride on either of our motorcycles and if you bring the truck you have to pick her up and set her down in it.

She calls everyone "Honey" because she says she can't remember anyone's name, cusses a lot and is always talking about stuff that happened years ago. She's very proud of the dwindling independence that she has left and says that she'll never go into a nursing home. She still works around her house and yard when she's feeling well enough.

The reason I posted this is because I think people like Ethel are a treat and we should understand that taking some time out of our busy lives for folks like her can really brighten their day as well as our own. Also, Ethel has cancer (again) and just had surgery that we're all hoping she recovers from soon. Although, she does like to tell me a lot that she'll probably die soon and "you have to come to my funeral honey!"

Get well soon Ethel!
(oh, she did really proudly show me her computer one day but I don't think that she knows how to use the internet so it's not like I'm expecting her to see this or anything)

This is not a joke

The following is an actual text message that I got from my 11 year old Godson today.

"Was up my homey skillet?"

Hahaha, love that kid, he's hilarious!

The Dream

How perfect is this place? All a guy needs is a job pumping gas a few miles down the road, couple of cows, some chickens, handful of goats, nice little garden and a pig named Arnold. Livin' the dream.

Happy Birthday Ryan

Go confidently in the direction of your dreams. Live the life you have imagined.

If a man does not keep pace with his companions, perhaps it is because he hears a different drummer. Let him step to the music which he hears, however measured or far away.


-Henry David Thoreau

Whoops, forgot about the farmers market in St. Joe too.
St. Joe Farmers Market
"The only people for me are the mad ones, the ones who are mad to live, mad to talk, mad to be saved, desirous of everything at the same time, the ones who never yawn or say commonplace things, but burn like fabulous roman candles exploding like spiders across the stars and in the middle you see the blue center light pop and everybody goes "AWWW!"

-Jack Kerouac

I wanna build one of these slammed on the ground, sans front fender and windshield with 16" apes and a solo seat. And have a mudflap with the naked trucker ladies on it.
