    who has fresh roses in December in 26 degree weather ? mine seem to be a bit off season .. anywho i work part time at a big box hardware store that is "not " home depot .. i work in tools and hardware and only once in a great while am i not able to give a customer what they need .. some will come in after having studied countless hours learning everything about what they want and have more questions than i can answer .. i dont know everything about every product we sell . i spent 30 years in the space and defense industry .iv`e been one year on the sales floor ..we have 8 different kinds of the same Dewalt impact driver and some people want me to explain them all ..recently one guy was not satisfied with the answers i was giving him and he literally farted on me as he walked away ... HA !! ..and no the virus mask does not mask the smell .. which makes me ask .. if a mask cant deter a fart how can it deter a virus that is a 1000 times smaller ... all this is leading up to all of our managers and bosses are out with the virus .. one of them attended a meeting while infected and infected them all .. we are running on borrowed bosses from other stores and we are out of control .. glad i`m off all week .

    I have an ex son in law who works for HD and he thinks he knows it all but he doesn't have enough common sense to pour piss out of a boot.

    a few loyal customers we have say they will never set foot in a home depot again .. others who get angry at me say they will go straight to home depot .. i admit we do not have enough floor staff to service all the needs of our customers .. too many times i find myself trapped in the plumbing or electrical departments because no one is working them .. lowes has had a 30 % increase of business this year yet has not increased floor coverage one iota ..they still staff departments based on known sales figures and trends from last year ..

    COTTON !!! when i was a member on a worldwide forum every year i would post a few pictures of various stages of cotton and some members from other parts of the world would be fascinated that their drawers and tee shirts came from such a strange plant ...for some reason i have always paid attention to the growing trends near me and its` always either cotton, soy beans or corn usually equally divided but this year 80 % of all crops has been cotton ..there is a gin across the road from me and i have never heard it running in December .. and they still have a months worth of bales sitting on the ground ..there is about 20 times more than this sitting around .

    I've been through the south on a few occasions, mostly driving from Dayton, Ohio to Bradenton, Fl on spring vacations while in high school in the late 50's, and I don't remember seeing even a bail of cotton much less a field. My step father never liked going the same way twice so I've been through parts of Georgia, Alabama, South and North Carolina and Tennessee. Awesome country except for too much red clay in Georgia.

    ahh yes .. i remember it well ... as i ride around i come across places that bring back good and bad memories from long ago . for the next several posts i will relate some of them as well as the scenery that awakens them .. 50 or more years ago there was a dairy farm on this property and as various vehicles and farm implements fell in disrepair they would be parked on this back lot in with the milk cows to rot away .. not the milk cows rotting but the vehicles ..as you drove around this curve in the road you could look at the back corner of the pasture and see numerous cars and trucks and a few steel wheeled tractors from the 20s thru the 50s .. i was a fledgling hot rodder at the time so i had not much interest in them except to notice them on the way by .. then one day everything was gone ,, the old homestead and dairy barn was torn down and a big new house built .. but i still have a picture in my mind ..

    Nostalgia eh?
    Just recently we went back to where I lived as a kid nearly sixty years ago.
    Things have changed...tremendously.
    I pedalled my push bike around those streets after school delivering groceries for the corner store, knew every one of them well.
    Landmarks have gone...vanished...as if they'd never been.
    Nostalgia.
    It ain't what it used to be.
    It's a thing of the past.

    of little interest to most people but i am fascinated by this .. at my last job that i spent 28 years at we had the same maintenance man for about 15 of those years .. an older man who drove a ratty old chevy pickup ands i would see him almost daily as i worked in receiving and his supplies came thru me .. anywho the years role on and one friday i have to work over a few minutes and i notice a long black limo pulling into the parking lot and the maintenance man gets in it and off it goes .. left his work truck where it was parked .. i ask a fellow employee " what`s up with that ? " .. he says " you dont know who that is " .. no i dont ..,, that limo belongs to John Hendricks .. the owner of the Discovery Channel .. the maintenance man is his brother .. every friday that limo comes to take him to the airport and a private jet flys him anywhere in the world he wants to go ..turns out John grew up in Huntsville got his learning here moved away and made his fortune .. i knew a gazillionaires brother and never knew it .. HA !

    memories ... pressed between the pages of my mind ... or at least what little there is left of it .. along with old age come CRS . " Cant Remember Stuff " .. but i do have a memory or two of this bridge ,, lots of good drag racing took place here at hump creek ,, a 200 ft long concrete launch pad and a half mile of straight rd ahead ,, the finish line was actually another bridge a little over an 1/8 th mile away then you had to woa down pretty quickly to make a nearly 90 decree left turn or end up in the woods .. one fellow unfamiliar with the rd did not make that turn .. killed him and 3 buddies but they were`nt racing they were just plain speeding ..i remember a 67 cutlass with a swapped in 455 and a 429 super cobra torino squaring off here twice .. the torino won taking off from the concrete at a dead start but the cutlass won from a rolling start .. they never made a third pass as the state trooper who lived on the same rd came and put an end to our fun ,, apparently we only had one trooper in north bama in the early 70`s as he was the one who always came ..he would tell us to go somewhere else .. we also had miles creek / lick skillet / macon rd / huricane rd / plenty of places to act a fool ..

    you've heard of the tree of life .. this is the tree of death .. monster of thing sitting barely 3 feet off the hiway .. waiting to jump out in front of passerbys who are texting or drunk or whatever else makes you lose control .. iv`e lost one friend to this tree back in the early 70`s tried to knock it down in a 69 torino at over 90 mph .. another friend survived splitting his car in half .. it was the olds cutlass in the last post ..i dont know the person responsible for the cross standing there .. this is about a mile and half from my home .. most like plenty more folks have tasted the bark here ..

    I'd never heard of City Data so I googled them -
    A relocation forum that claims to allow all points of view but is really just a front for Realtors. Moderators are given extreme power and control to ban members that they disagree with. If you post anything negative about a city or state you will eventually be banned.
