Quick Quip

"Mo" likes my car lot stories so here is a quick one for him.

The Pritchmeyer (as he is called by his peers) sent a nice young couple on a test drive alone. They returned in a cab. "John", they shouted as they exited the cab, "The car caught on fire!!!!!"

"Oh", he replied, "Other than that how did you like it"?

Cousin' Poem: Winter in Coloado

This poem was sent to me by a cousin.

It's winter in Colorado,
And the gentle breezes blow,
Seventy miles an hour,
At twenty five below.

Oh, how I love Colorado,
When the snow's up to your butt.
You take a breath of winter,
And your nose gets frozen shut.

Yes, the weather here is wonderful,
So I guess I'll hang around.
I could never leave Colorado
'Cause I'm frozen to the ground.

Dangerous Weapon

Fools can misuse anything to create dangerous situations. For example, running off a perfectly good road while trying to kill a pesky fly.

Forced Humility Sucks

Taking a class or two can humble you. First, an eight hour marathon CCW class (concealed carry weapon), i.e. wild eyed crazy gun nut

class to those in our population that need to ban anything that makes them uncomfortable when doing so thrills them by exercising their assumed moral superiority and smelling a whiff of danger. This was a Profire USA effort than annoyed me buy exposing my ignorance of several points I had assumed mastery for years . Good people; Profire-worth the money.

Last night was a driver ed traffic school whatever. The choice of a fine and points or paying to attend a class was a no brainer. As a 50 year license holder and career traffic scofflaw the challenge was to stay awake. The instructor, a retired police chief, was very annoying. He made the class interesting and taught me several things I didn't know. In doing so he ruined a perfectly good snit.
