    When I woke up this morning this poem came to me, I usually don't put this type a poem on SOC, but I thought l"ll start a Diary.

    Contractor Problems

    Wake up get out of bed
    Have a coffee to clear my head
    It doesn't erase the thoughts
    Of the lies that I bought
    I guess I am a fool
    To listen to those that are cruel
    They say what you want to hear
    Because the truth is what they fear
    I trusted their word
    Though sometimes it sounded absurd
    He says he'll fix the issues
    With tears in his eyes I hand him a tissue
    My faith in people says give him a chance
    My mind says take a strong stance
    Only the future will tell
    if I compromise or yell

    Since I put the TV in our bedroom, I've been able to watch a lot more of YouTube.
    Especially Videos about ufos.
    One in particular is an Coulthart interview of Gary Nolan, who is Professor of immunology at stanford university, A nominee for the nobel prize and his credentials go on and on very respected scientists.
    The interview is long a little over an hour and 9 minutes, I watched the whole thing and enjoyed every minute of it.
    A lot of his beliefs coincide with mine. I like the fact that he is Investigating some of the UFO artifacts and Sightings, he is a bright and logical guy. Give it a try if UFO's interest you

    Went to a new thrift store in this area yesterday. It was layed out nice, However the isles were pretty narrow, I had trouble maneuvering the supplied shopping cart around turns.
    I picked up a book for my grandson, He likes guinness world book of records, They had the year 2016, He'll be happy about that. I got a Boston Pop CD Theme songs from old TV shows, a small bucket, and a used cane. I was going to buy another cane, so it was a pretty good outing. Best part I got all this for $2.
    Right now looking out the window the sky is clear looks like a beautiful day. With christmas decorations up in the house, I think I'll try to do a little work outside today, We'll see how that goes.
    Can't believe it's a new year's eve day, We don't go out on new year's eve, We stay home eat, drink, and watch TV.
    Happy New Year!!! TO ALL

    While surfing the Web, I found this old ad and captions for it came to mind.

    "Henry likes them big so I'll have to fill it to a DD"

    "I fill mine with helium it gives me that lift that I like"

    "I had a blowout I tried using an air pump"

    When I first looked at that pic, I thought the guy in the billboard was the "Maxell--blown away" guy.

    I often check out the 'handicapped' area in our thrift shop. I was all excited to see a cane on wheels. About half way down was a round metal frame attached to the stem and I thought A CUP HOLDER!!!! A cane with a cup holder!
    Uhmmmmm no. it was a transport for a small oxygen cylinder.o_O
    Happy new year. Sorry if I posted this already.

    Went grocery shopping this morning and had a weird experience. while on the checkout line the cashier says to me "pass me your grocery bags" I bring my own bags and pack my groceries right in the cart, this way there's no lifting of bags.At first he was bagging after he rung up an item, but it didn't last long, I wound up finishing the bagging. Why did he want the bags??
    When I went to pay by credit card, he grabs my card and slides it in the card reader, I did not ask for help, he seemed odd.
    When I got home after wife and I put the groceries away, I was checking the register recipe, it indicated I took $20 in cash, I never asked for cash nor did I receive any. My wife called the store manager who once was told what happened and who the cashier was made an appointment for us to get the $20 back.
    Seems the cashier had a scam going, the fact that the manager offered to refund out money without hassle, he must have gotten other complaints.

    That's crazy!

    Was this a local independent store or a chain store?

    A chain store, that are individually owned. There are a few of them on Long Island, I believe is NJ based.
    Am I allowed to give the name?
    Hint I went to the Can-Can sale.

    We have to stay frosty. It happens everywhere.
    I went in to buy a lottery ticket once and when I got home I had a RECEIPT for a lottery ticket. I wonder if the cashier ever won more than I did on any of his thefts.

    Went back to the grocery store today To retrieve my twenty dollars, Manager didn't say much he asked for the receipt, examined it then told the guy working the service desk to give me $20.

    On another subject I found this photo of an old TV I do not remember this one at all, Remind me of something from the 50's scifi flick or a bottle water tank.
