Hey Dudes and Dudettes…Wassup??

Hey what happened to John Doe and Neo Victorian? Have they faced the same fate as our good friend Lipton Teabag?  Has big government “disappeared them”?

I know not everyone wants to get involved in the shit storm of rhetoric of what happened in Arizona…don’t blame you one bit, but there are other things to blog about.

JD, I’m itching to read some more of your novel. Or perhaps some stories of your search for LTB. Those were good for a laugh.

Neo, hows about some more of your Rule 5 postings, or just anything to fill the vacuum here.

Imagine my Suprise…. (via Thatmrgguy’s Blog)

Watch your speed going through this town.

Talk about your "big brother" syndrome, guess what I had waiting on me when I got home. A traffic ticket from Ridgeland, South Carolina. Yep, evidently the town of Ridgeland has speed traps set up on their seven mile stretch of I-95. I wondered what that blinding flash was that almost made us swerve over into that bridge abutment. The envelope showed up at our house with a copy of my license photo, a photo of my tag and a picture of the driver. I … Read More

How You Get Your Christmas Tree (via Thatmrgguy’s Blog)

Should be on my way back to South Florida, but we’re snowed in. Global warming my ass.

How You Get Your Christmas Tree Well, I promised to explain what and how we do what we do. First of all, we're our own company, although we work for the grower to take care of their trees after they're shipped from the farm to the stores. We service 70 Home Depot stores in the South Florida market from Titusville down to Key West on the East coast, including the greater Miami area and from Venice down to Naples on the West coast, including a store in Okeechobee right in the mid … Read More

Hey You Lucky Bastards…I’m Back!

Well…it’s all over over but but the crying. We won’t know for a few more days how we did, but all indications say that we did pretty good this year. Found out that we actually had 127,000 trees shipped instead of the original 123,000, and so far, we’ve sold over 120,000. Still a little ways to go to our target percentage of 98% sold, which is what we had last year.

I was very proud of my daughter, who helped out this year. She was our best worker and broke her dad’s,(me), record for hours worked. She had 362 hours, far eclipsing my previous record of 325 hours a couple of years ago. I would also venture to say that she also broke my mileage record, too. Oh… that’s hours worked in a month.

Just have to go back down to Fla after Christmas and clean up the remainder of the trees. Maybe hit the HardRock Casino one time.

 

Hope Everyone has a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.

Half Way There…Whew (via Thatmrgguy’s Blog)

Need I say more?

Half Way There...Whew Well, we're at least half way there. As of a couple of days ago, we had sold over 60,000 Frasier Fir Christmas trees. We're at the half way mark now. But it aint downhill yet.   What it looked like a couple of days ago…We were "shittin' bricks". We'd never had that many trees in the warehouse before. Not as many trees as before…but still too many What it looked like yesterday before we got another couple more tractor trailer loads of fre … Read More

Come Monday…Florida Bound…Music Send Off (via Thatmrgguy’s Blog)

Going to South Florida with an aching in my heart.

Well, come Monday, I'm off to the environs of South Florida to sell Christmas trees. Be back sometime around Christmas. So my blog postings will probably be a little slow. I hope you all will forgive this short interlude and please visit the fine folks on my blogroll. Wish us good luck for another successful year and please keep us in your prayers.     [youtube=http: … Read More
