    So I brought the semi retired boss with me to meet with the potential rep. This trip I could have done solo in a 1 day trip fly in fly out done in a day. Nope had to leave Wednesday afternoon, meet today and could not schedule a flight home the same day in case the meeting went long, so have a flight home in the morning.

    During the meeting there were a few times when I wanted to say just be quiet and leave this to me this is what you pay me to do. I spent more energy trying to steer the information and circle back after he said some things than I did presenting why they want to work with us.

    One day I was celebrating the fact that my son could put on his own pull-up. The next day he wanted to borrow the car! Then all of a sudden he was out on his own. Now he is going on 32 years old....... it happens so fast.

    And he will blame your presentation if your company does not get this guy on board.

    Tom Herman, the Texas football coach. The Red River Rivalry is 119 years old and we've been hanging the horns since the beginning. Now it's a penalty as of last year bc Titty Baby Tom, probably a big Beto supporter, is so woke and hanging them horn is sooo offensive. I cannot wait to stomp a mud hole through those crybabies tomorrow.

    That's the million dollar question. My guess is they're just that soft and it's a way to gain penalties in their favor.

    11020191.JPG I messed up today on a good buck, I was messing with my phone. I was texting some bodies and i was sitting and looking down at my phone. I was about to tell them I was going to tell them I was going to get down, when I heard a noise looked up and oh fudge there is a tall racked buck at 12 yards in front of me.

    Fudge fudge fudge.

    I attempted to slide up the tree with my back he stopped and looked at me. However I was standing now. As looked forward I reached for my bow. He didn't like that leaped twice and I grabbed my bow got the release on it and he hurried off to about 80 yards out.

    Fudge fudge
    fudge

    I tried calling to him but I new he was returning

    M Fudger,

    Ehh, does it really matter? Paper's paper to me, as long as it doesn't have wood chunks, slivers or give me paper cuts down there, it's all good.

    On the subject, the one thing I did like was when Scott came out with the tubeless TP rolls.

    If it does not really matter the offended environmentalists should just shut up. Go morn a glacier. Fly there in private jets and tell us how we should live.

    I like scott and the other el-cheap brands because they clean better, especially if you’re dealing with the brown magic marker. Also, my place was built back in ‘93 when they first came out with the low water regulations for commodes and at the time they hadn’t really perfected the science of how to make **** flush with less water. The newer versions seem to have figured out that if they put a bigger hole between the tank and the bowl it’ll give the water and turds a little more kinetic energy to help move things along. Back when they first cut the water allotment it seems they didn’t give the commode engineers much time to figure out how to make it work so basically I’m stuck with a bunch of commodes that’ll clog if you ever use more than 3-4 squares of the fancy stuff. If use Scott they’ll devour a quarter-mile of that stuff in a single flush without even hesitating.
