Free to good home

Here is an ad that someone put in the paper once:
Free to a good home. Dog. 6 months old. House broken. Half poodle, half sneaky neighbour’s dog. Hateful little thing. Bites.

One of Many

I was browsing through some old things and came across some business cards when Ruth and I owned the Tire Service Business many years ago. I built that business up and then sold it. Was a great time in my life but a lot of work in all kinds of weather. We had two service trucks on the road with power tailgates and air jacks which made things nice. Dangerous job though.

Cost To Rebuild A Model T Ford 1928

Here is an old post card of what it would cost to fix up an old Model T Ford many years ago.  Click Picture To Enlarge. 

With that this should be taken into consideration.  Things seem to be much cheaper back then but consider what wages were. Considering that, things are about the same. The average wage in 1912 was $500/$700 a year. Then there was world war one and wages spiked to an average of $5000 a year in 1928 (the year of the  post card ) All and all, prices are about the same percentage of a pay check. The model T was worth more in 1928 than what it cost new in 1912 but still pretty low.

Merry Christmas

I hope you all have a very Merry Christmas & a Happy New Years.  Be safe. 

I have a list of folks I know, all written in a book

And every year when Christmas comes, I go and take a look.

And that is when I realize, that these names are a part.

Not of a book they’re written in, but of my very heart.

For each name stands for someone, who has crossed my path sometime,

And in that meeting they’ve become, the Rhythm in each Rhyme.

And while it sounds fantastic, for me to make this claim,

I really feel that I’m composed, of each remembered name.

And while you may not be aware, of any special link,

Just meeting you has changed my life, a lot more than you think.

For once you’ve met somebody, the years cannot erase,

The memory of a pleasant word, or of a friendly face.

So never think my Christmas cards, are just a mere routine,

Of names upon a Christmas list, forgotten in between.

For when I send a Christmas card, that is addressed to you,

It’s because you are on the list, of folks whom I’m indebted to.

For I am but the total, of many folks I’ve met,

And you happened to be one of those, I prefer not to forget.

And whether I have known you, for many years or few,

In some way you have had a part, in shaping things I do.

And every year when Christmas comes, I realize anew,

The best Gift Life can offer, is meeting folks like you.

And may the spirit of Christmas, that forever endures,

Leave its richest blessings in the hearts, of you and yours.

The Budweiser Donkey

Here is a cool video of the Budweiser Donkey wanting to be a Clydesdale.  Great commercial done up many years ago.  We need more of these.  I have to say that Budweiser is one great beer too.   Click Link Below to view.

Man Versus Woman (The Minds)

Okay, I have watched many funny video’s relating to man and women.  My son Craig sent me this link of how a mans mind and a womans mind works.  It is about ten minutes long and is a must to watch.  I am sure you will all get a good laugh.  Let me know what you think.    Enjoy.  Click Link to view.  GW
