This morning down .4 which is exactly what I was up last week. Ridiculous! But there was an interesting discussion going on before the meeting started. One of the gals had heard about a woman names Stepandahalf. She had something wrong with her hip so each time she took a step the next one was a half step. Interesting trivia, but also she was the town's madam! None of us had heard this before, guess she died in the 70's sometime many years after here retirement. Thought it was a funny discussion.
Your Bill is into so many things, he certainly is making the most of his life. I am still looking for a purpose for mine.
Too bad about slipping below second place, but at least you all had fun and like you say you're still in the money.
I don't think Bill the carpenter is going to be done anytime soon. He came about 10, we talked for a while then he got started. We had talked earlier about my truck so when I went outside to air up the flat back tire, he said why don't you put the charger on it (it hasn't been started for probably 5 years) and we'll try to start it later today. So then since he was taking a break we walked back to the back pasture area so I could show him the huge oak tree that had fallen down. Then he got back to work and around 4pm decided to stop for the day, too hot to paint, it would dry to fast to spread. He had brought his portfolio of previous work so he came inside had some ice tea and I looked at the book. Before he left he gave me a hug, he had done that at one of the barn dances and I had said it was nice, living alone I don't get many of those. He said he remembered that, he didn't either. The truck never did start so he is bringing a battery he has from home to see if that will work, tomorrow.
Can you tell I kind of like him?
