    On a note related to Hoss429's post about the woman that thought he was following her.

    I play the state lottery (I know it's a sucker play) and have my tickets checked by having them scanned at the local station. On one particular day the message came back that I should sign the ticket immediately and cash it in at a state lottery office. That meant that the winnings were more than the $500 that the station can pay out, but it doesn't show how much the winnings are. I took the ticket and walked back out to my truck. As I pulled out, I noticed that a guy that had been standing in the store when the attendant told me about the message pulled out behind me.

    I made a couple of turns on my way home and he made the same turns. I got suspicious and made a right turn onto a side street. He made the same turn. I made another right turn at another side street and he followed. These were completely random turns. I made a couple of lefts and he followed those too. This was in a large neighborhood. After another random turn, he must have figured out that I knew he was following me and broke off his chase. I took a completely unusual route back to my house. I didn't want this guy to know where I lived.

    I know this sounds paranoid, but I'm sure he was following me. The winnings turned out to be $1500. People have been killed for a lot less than that and this guy knew I had a ticket that was worth something. May have even been the jackpot as far as he knew.

    Wowzer - that's s bit on the scary side, Ken. One more reason I typically don't leave home with out one of my friends: Mr. SIG or Mr. Kimber tucked under my shirt on my right hip.

    I played the lottery once when the jackpot was $700 million. I went to the local liquor store and bought a ticket and then I find out they gave the winning numbers to somebody else! The nerve....

    when i wore a younger mans clothes i was quite strong for my spindly size .. i had great leg strength and athletic control of toothpick arms .. i could throw a ball way farther than bigger guys ,, i could jump over small building with a single bound .. i do have a t shirt with a big S on it but i rarely wear it anymore .. anywho many years ago as i am some fellow employees were sitting outside eating lunch the conversation leaned towards who could pick up the back end of a little car parked nearby .. it was a ford fiesta ..a few guys tried and failed .. a big girl tried .. when my turn came i got the car about 6 inches off the ground .. everyone was amazed .. till Big Ray came by ..big RAy was 6 foot 7 and weighed 520 Lbs .. and it weren't fat .. he was a part time bouncer at several clubs and did not even have to show up most of the time .. just the fear of him being there kept people straight .. he boasted that he could pick the car up with one hand .. i picked the car up by backing up to it and lifting .. Big Ray walked to it forwards and with one arm raised it about 3 feet in the air .. there were two guys sitting in the car with the switch on listening to the radio .. Big Ray leaned forward and the car rolled about 5 feet and cranked up and smacked the rear bumper of a car in front of it .. no real damage was done and no one was going to complain even if there was ..

    a rose by any other name is something .. i cant remember the quote .. i dont have a green thumb but i believe i have a record setter here .. this rose is nearly 6 inches across .. only two grew on the plant so it must dedicate itself to " bigger is better " .. my normal rose plant nearby has dozens of 2 inch roses .. these big ones have no smell so i dont know why nature made them this way .. they are just pretty to look at ..

    I had to look up the rose reference from Shakespeare's Romeo and JulietThe phrase doesn't make sense out of context so here is the dialog it came from
    Juliet:

    O Romeo, Romeo! wherefore art thou Romeo?
    Deny thy father and refuse thy name;
    Or, if thou wilt not, be but sworn my love,
    And I'll no longer be a Capulet.

    Romeo:

    [Aside] Shall I hear more, or shall I speak at this?

    Juliet:

    'Tis but thy name that is my enemy;
    Thou art thyself, though not a Montague.
    What's Montague? It is nor hand, nor foot,
    Nor arm, nor face, nor any other part
    Belonging to a man. O, be some other name!
    What's in a name? That which we call a rose
    By any other name would smell as sweet;
    So Romeo would, were he not Romeo call'd,
    Retain that dear perfection which he owes
    Without that title. Romeo, doff thy name,
    And for that name which is no part of thee
    Take all myself.

    Romeo:

    I take thee at thy word:
    Call me but love, and I'll be new baptized;
    Henceforth I never will be Romeo.

    Not exactly... The myth was that when King James directed the Bible to be translated, that Shakespeare was allowed to review some of the translations, and that in Psalm 46 he may have "polished" the wording to include a tribute to himself in his 46th year - counting 46 words from the start of that Psalm one finds "shake", and counting 46 words from the end (not counting the "Selah's) is "spear". A renowned Biblical scholar debunked the claim in a letter about 10 years ago, stating that it was nothing but a "hoary myth" and pointing out that in writings from 1549, before Shakespeare was born, the words "shake" and "spear" appeared in the same places in the Psalm. Pure coincidence.

    SMFH, not been a good year. Today marks the 6th death of someone I know this year. Two friends of April’s son, April’s son, a young man who grew up with my son and today Larry a long time friend of April’s and someone who aloud me into his close nit group of people he called friends. (Larry’s son also passed away a couple of months ago)
    Sadly the demons of the first 5 took them, April’s friend went in his sleep.
    Makes me enjoy my life even the more and am thankful for everyday I’m allowed to have another day...joe

    I'm still trying to get him back on here although I think it might be a lost cause.
    The weather here seems to agree with Richard and I'm hopeful so I hope he'll stay awhile. In the meantime he can just posts as he wishes under my name.

    He might consider a new account, maybe TechinspectorOne, realizing that all of his old posts are still there and can be searched for as desired.
