Traditional Labor Day

What a wonderful eye attention getting eye sore! This old car peddler approves!

Face Mask

 Found a good use for one. The mirror broke off in the car wash and no duct tape was to be found in the trunk (that oversight will be quickly taken care of). Only 2 miles from home, and 40 mph speed limits, that kept the mirror from flopping around.

WSF wins the "Best Use of a Face Mask Outside an ER" award!

Love the balloons and things. Brings back good memories. I still get catalogs from Sid Savage and get a chuckle out of all the things for dealerships they sell.

Back in the day running offsite sales, we bought balloons by the five box gross, 16' balloons by the crate, and helium by the truck load. The staff at A,B,& C Dealer Supply on Santa Fe Drive got big smiles when they saw us come in the door.

With the parents approval, every kid that wanted a balloon got one no matter how busy we were.

LOL, if it works, it ain't wrong! And balloons for the win!!!

One of the things I like about this blog is that it's practical. Broken mirror? Fix it up with that otherwise utterly useless mask. Result.

Rural upbringing. Balloons? In my day could put out more than most. Three person team. Filler, knot tie, string tie. We could do 50 in 15 minutes. One place before Cowboy Corral a manager was a total prick. Closing time inflate one white balloon and release it in the service bays with their white ceilings. Heat kicks on, fan starts moving the balloon and the alarm goes off. Manager must come back to reset it.

Cowboy up.

Hi WSF, it is a car, not the Mighty Max?

1995 Buick Regal, gold in color. The Mighty Max draws too much attention. An old fart in an older gold Buick doesn't get even a second look driving in neighborhoods.

What I do part time is deliver quasi legal papers. Usually drama free but not always.
