 I was shopping at my FAVORITE store (BIG LOTS) and the empty store next to it had a huge sign saying "FUTURE HOME OF HARBOR FREIGHT". That right there is a WIN/WIN situation!  Now this is a store I love to go to. Sure they sell CRAP but if you looking for something that will get the job done BUT may not last too long after that and for a great price, HARBOR FREIGHT is for you......

 I have a couple more thoughts I want to share:

  • Harbor Freight has taken the crown of "tools I really don't need" from a store Boike and I LOOOOOOOVED in the early 90s. It was called Northern Hydraulics but now it is called just Northern Tool. They use to sell CRAP too for REALLY cheap but I am not sure they do anymore!
  • My mother LOATHES going there, she says it smells, OH WELL! But dad and I love going there. HECK! We just go and look around at all the 'junk' they sell and we might buy something.
  • ALDI, BOJANGLES, BIG LOTS AND NOW HARBOR FREIGHT! All in a 5 mile radius of casa de McBride! WOO HOO! I NEVER have to leave L-TOWN again!*
 THERE, I just wanted to get that off my chest and can I get a "HALLELUJAH" from the congregation??????

  Also I want to give a 'SHOUT OUT' to my sister in law who threw a pretty DOLCE (That's Spanish for 'SWEET') Thanksgiving party. FIRST OFF! She has some REALLY hot FRIENDS and the food/ atmosphere ROCKED! KUDOS to you young lady!

 And some sad news from the R.A news desk St. Cloud, MN corespondent Dan Brill. The guy who we and all AMERICA called a WEIRDO because of the stuff he did to his house.

 Died of an apparent "heart attack" while enjoying his time in Thailand..... So what is the over/under that hairless Asian boy and a mountain of "nose candy" on the night stand were involved?

 OH YEAH! I did another section of the ditch....

* Except when I go to worship statues of the Virgin Mary! That's what Catholics do right?  At least that is what those silly Protestants think!  ANYWAYS, The church is 12 miles away and OUT of my 5 mile radius.

TICKING AWAY! The thorn in my side part III

 Where does it go? Enough of me whining like a politician (THEY ALL DO IT and it doesn't matter what side of the aisle they are on. ANYWAYS! Here is what I did this month:
  • Slept
  • Ate
  • Worked my two jobs (Lowes and Papa Johns)
  • Watched some 'tool porn'. NERDY I KNOW BUT!!
  • Dealt with the kids I work with (am I crazy or are all kids just stupid?) HA! I bet $100 that some one said that about me when I was a kid.
  • Worked on the ditch from HELL!
The one side of the driveway (smallest section) is done.
  • My old friend Todd and his girlfriend (Elouise) came down and we, Todd actually cut them, took out the LAST two NATAS (SATAN backwards) pine trees at casa de McBride. 

Todd showing those pine trees who was boss!
Him and his chain saw dang nabbit!

 So as of now, there is only ONE crappy tree left (cedar) on my property and his days are numbered! I will cut him down soon enough and when I do, it will be a joyous day here at casa de McBride.

 That's all I have for you this month, take care and remember to "ALWAYS wear a rain jacket if you think it's gonna rain........"1

1. I use to do the announcements at my high school back in 1992 and I said this one day at the end. One of the nuns was told what it meant and she was none too pleased! She REALLY let me have it and if I recall, I was given detention for it.  


I just posted a video about an RR bell that I and my friends 'borrowed' in 92 from an old abandoned RR crossing!!!!! And ...
