My second wife must have believed something like that, because on the 6th day she said she was going to completely remake me. My reply to that was, "I think you had better hit the road." She left the next morning, and the only time I heard from her since was a few months later when the divorce papers came thru. One of my better decisions in life. I am flexible, not limp.

In those dayís you had to pull the handle to get out , now adays theirs no doors .

So I grabbed a piece of paper towel to grab the door handle with ,as I was grossed out at the prospect of what was on that handle .
Every day since then I have used a piece of paper towel to get out of a washroom , and left it laying by the door.
I noticed about ten years ago others were following suit and doing the same, so most establishments started putting waste baskets by the doors .
Ive been doing it since 1969 though. Maybe the first one to ever do so ?
A pioneer, perchance?

Many people don’t know this,but the pet rock was also my idea. In my early teens I was with my dad on the farm picking rocks , and I told him I wish we could sell these rocks .
To which my dad replied ,you can’t sell rocks son .

3 months later K-Mart had Pet rocks for sale and the guy made a million

I donít always insulate , but when I do .
Ok ,I never insulate

A lot of pet rocks escaped custody by skipping out.

The more I do, the less I accomplish.
