Got quite the email from someone the other week what was pretty hot under the collar about my latest column I wrote on my birthday. I say someone cause they didn’t sign their name at all to their email. Anyway, I never heard senior’s pensions called “old people welfare” before. Then they went off on a rant about the photo radar and reporting facts and such. Folks, my columns are mostly jokes for fun. So here is some more stuff that’s not intended to be real reporting or journalism.
1 I heard folks is upset because the line ups at Tim Horton’s are so long around the building that they are inconvenienced trying to get a coffee in the morning. Now that better weather’s here maybe they can put it in park and trot in for their cup. I got no problem getting mine when I sit there in the morning laughing at the people lined up around the building and grumbling about waiting to get their coffee.
2 Read that a bunch of bears in New Hampshire are responsible for car break-ins. Here it’s thieves. Don’t be stupid. Lock your car or at least take your wallet and other stuff in the house.
3 Heard Fire Chief Ron Cust has taken up autobody work as a hobby. Makes good sense with all the old clunkers he buys. At least when the engine blows the thing’ll look nice. Speaking of old cars, I read here last week that the Show and Shine is going to be bigger and better than what it was last year. I don’t know how that’s possible. Last year I had to sit down twice before I was done looking at them all.
4 And speaking of beer, now that I’m getting my “old people welfare,” I think I’ll stock up with a few extra six packs and sit on my asterisk after working full time for 42 years. Bottoms up!
