Living in Missouri

The owner of a golf course in Missouri was confused about paying an invoice, so he decided to ask his secretary for some mathematical help. He called her into his office and said, "You graduated from Mizzou and I need some help. If I were to give you $20,000, minus 14%, how much would you take off?" The secretary thought a moment, then replied, "Everything but my earrings." You gotta love those Missouri women.

A group of Missouri friends went deer hunting and paired off in twos for the day. That night, one of the hunters returned alone, staggering under the weight of an eight-point buck. "Where's Henry?" the others asked. "Henry had a stroke of some kind. He's a couple of miles back up the trail," the successful hunter replied. "You l! eft Henry laying out there and carried the deer back?" they inquired. "A tough call," nodded the hunter. "But I figured no one is going to steal Henry!"

A senior at Missouri was overheard saying.. "When the end of the world comes, I hope to be in Missouri." When asked why, he replied he'd rather be in Missouri because everything happens in Missouri 20 years later than in the rest of the civilized world.

The young man from Missouri came running into the store and said to his buddy, "Bubba, somebody just stole your pickup truck from the parking lot!" Bubba replied, "Did you see who it was? "The young man answered, "I couldn't tell, but I got the license number."

NEWS FLASH! - Missouri's worst air disaster occurred when a small two-seater Cessna 150 plane, piloted by two Mizzou students, crashed into a cemetery earlier today. Search and Rescue workers have recovered 300 bodies so far and expect the number to climb as digging continues into the evening. The pilot and copilot survived and are helping in the recovery efforts.

An Missouri State trooper pulled over a pickup on I-44. The trooper asked, "Got any ID?" The driver replied, "Bout whut?"

And My Favorite A man in Missouri had a flat tire, pulled off on the side of the road, and proceeded to put a bouquet of flowers in front of the car and one behind it. Then he got back in the car to wait. A passerby studied the scene as he drove by and was so curious he turned around and went back. He asked the fellow what the problem was. The man replied, "I have a flat ti! re." The passerby asked, "But what's with the flowers?" The man responded, "When you break down they tell you to put flares in the front and flares in the back! I never did understand it either."

Organically mindedness

Saw a news story today, Whole Foods won't be selling live lobsters anymore. It's inhumane. Probably this is more of an economic decision and they thought they might want to pandor to the PETA types. OH well..

Goodbye Bar

So, yesterday I got off early from work and felt quite industrius. Lynn and I took about 2 hours and disassembled the big wooden bohemuth bar that the previous owners had left us. I use the term "Bar" lightly, it just seemed to be a big wooden box with laminate top. So, now it sits in front of the house as a stack of lumber. Hopefully, Allied waste will come by and take it away for us.

Today's been pretty much a lazy day. We went yard saling this morning and didn't really get that much. I got a book about Kites (actually, about Afghannies flying Kites), which I had heard about on the radio. Kite runner I think. Overall it was a good morning spending time with Lynn adn Nate and getting some exercise and sun in the subdivisions.

Everybody commented on Nate. He is so great to us. Good baby. That's good.

so, with the bar disassemblement, It's kind of like phase II of Project Basement REclemation. I have some shelves right now I'm going to show Lynn to hang up over her craft area so that she can put her little Rubber maid boxes up there. WE plan on making a little stamping area down there, but honestly, right now, it isn't too condusive to stamping...

One project that I have started myself is I'm trying to catalog all my comic books. I've got about 400 cataloged right now, and have about another 800 to go. Those should go quicker since their boxes that I have already sorted and stuff...

Well, I'm going to head back downstairs again. Lynn got a tool box from her parent's for her B-day, so i was a bit jealous, so I took my tool box and filled it with all my tools. Not everything fits like it should, I need to probably go up to the the next size.

Well, gotta go. I'll leave you with a pic of Nate and JAckson.

Ben Gone

Well, I haven't been posting for a while.. Mem day and stuff. kind of busy.

been going to the chiropracter and she is really reeking havoc on my back. don't know if she is really doing any good. I also wrenched my shoulder a good one this weekend at my parents so I've been aching all over. Also, yesterday, I did a standing long jump at my work's picnic, so now my ankles are screaming. Guess my 32 year old body isn't designed for all this wear and tear.

Got my bonus number today which is paid on next tuesday. should be a nice addition. Lynn told me we need to celebrate. don't know where yet. actually I do have a thought...

Maybe I should reveal it, otherwise Lynn is going to bug me about what my thought is.

but then again, maybe not.

We are going to go yard saleing on Sat. to find NAte some toys/clothes. The subdivision over in CC is haveing over 40. hopefully we can find something baby related... who knows...

Well, I gotta be going.
