One thing we are guaranteed about the N.S. election, a lot of losers will be winners.

U.S at the OLYMPICS

 

The American athletes seem to want to quit while they are behind rather than lose. I guess they can then say they never lost. They also never played, which puts them on the same level as the rest of us, not the heroes the media wants us to believe. 

Now this is interesting.

 I read this. 

"Ever since the start of recorded time, men have been excited at the start of a war and disgusted by the end."

Death in Zanzibar

 

A novel of young love and murder written before the time of political correctness. With this group of misfits, this book could be an ad for any type of alcoholic drink. We are teased by the na├»ve love of our teen age heroine, which turns out to be a red herring. She eventually falls for the other young man, who seems to face the possibility of becoming an alcoholic. 

 

Darn crows outside my window at 5 am this morning.

 

My wife is complaining about the potatoes looking old & wrinkled. I said, "Yeah, just like us."

KIJIJI Sales


Last month, my neighbour across the street threw out 2 chain saws. I went over and grabbed them. They were really junk. One didn't even have a blade. I thought I could sell them on Kijiji. My wife laughed at me. Anyway, I put them up for $5.00. 

A few days later I received an email from a guy who said that he couldn't come into the city because of the lockdown but if I would hold them for two weeks he would give me $40.00. I told him I would hold them but $20.00 was enough. He wrote back, no way, nothing less than $30.00. OK, I held them. First time I've been beat up instead of down. 

He came by a couple of weeks later with the $30.00. Told me that collecting this brand of chainsaw was his hobby. He had about 30 of them. Said he loved to take them apart and put them together again. 

Guess I did a few good deeds. Made a collector happy, kept stuff out of the landfill and got $30.00. My wife was still laughing but now she was also shaking her head.

I remember when we used to use catalogues for toilet paper. What was your favorite, Sears or Eaton's?.

The world started falling apart when they allowed graffiti to mar the urban landscape.

When I was young and heard a new song, I could understand the words. Nowadays I can't. On second thought, maybe that's a good thing.

Thoughts come & go and there is nothing you can do about them.

 


When I had heart surgery I lost weight and that weight is staying lost.

Your personal life is like a new pair of shoes, people may admire them but they don't know where they pinch.

Watching "Line of Duty" would make you think that half of London's coppers are bent.

Free Lottery Ticket

 


I've never won anything with a free lottery ticket. Do you think they make those numbers after the draw?
