I have half a mind to make some Jello, but add some shredded carrots like they do at the juvenile corrections facility.

My brother Bud should have worked on Madison avenue instead of on leaky roofs.
After 20 years, we packed it in. Closed our doors. Like one of those Oriental Rug Emporiums, we got the bug for shutting down, shutting up, and moving on. We still sell stuff on ebay and Mercari though.
Trying to make room in the garage for a ping-pong table, or a nice old man car, maybe a Lincoln Aviator? Sweet ride but no eating in the car and the dog can’t go.
Hopefully Teresa won’t fill the garage up with gardening stuff, to convert the little structure in the back yard into a “she shed”.
I just finished fixing the fried wiring connecting the lower element of our store. Tried to degrease from all the cooking residue in the back, not much luck. I wonder if this old lye product would help?
A wise person pointed out, “The internet would care much more if your dog was stabbed than if you were stabbed.”
Me too! Well not personally, but as a general rule.
Why do they always put icemakers in Fridges now? They are about as reliable as analog clocks in old cars.
A professor from the Washington State University was doing a test on children; he brought in some first graders, then he gave each of them each a lifesaver. All the kids got the same color at the same time. They quickly guessed the flavor based on the color, even before tasting;
Red=Cherry, Green=Lime, Orange=Orange, Yellow =Lemon
Then he gave them all a honey flavored one, they were baffled so were allowed to taste them. Still puzzled, he offered a hint; “This is something your mommy might call your daddy”
Then one little girl looked at the professor and the other children in horror and yells; “Spit them out! They’re assholes!!”
My sisters, and Teresa’s sisters, all have children, and they all grew up and had children of their own. This makes me the “great uncle”.
I don’t like the term, it makes me feel old, but there it is. It’s bad enough that I just looked in the mirror; Today I look like a cross between Howard Cunningham after his hardware store was robbed, and Albert Einstein when he woke up in the morning.
