    I have a rant but it was self inflicted. Note to self... drive home 6 miles at noon to reverify the tire size before ordering it. My 2 new front ATV tires showed up at work this morning. I drove home at noon to take the tires off so I can install the new ones at the shop. Pop the first one off just to see I screwed up. Put it back on, cussed myself out on the drive back to work and pretty much the whole afternoon. When I ordered I was thinking I had the same size tire as the boss's little bit newer ATV. So I just looked at his at work and ordered. I have a size smaller.

    Anybody need two Wanda AT 24 x 8 - 12 tires ?? Asking for a friend.

    We like millions of others just received a check in the mail from Uncle Sugar that we didn't ask for. What a stupid idea!

    Been on my feet a lot trying to get stuff done to list the house, luckily while I sleep my leg muscles are staging a sympathy strike for my hips. Was half awake this morning when I stretched and both calves responded with banjo string tight cramps. Those first 10 steps and going down the stairs what fun. You young bucks just wait getting old is no fun.

    Not as sorry as I am when I forget them downstairs and have to walk on the hard floor barefoot.

    Wife is working from home and needed a phone so she could use her head set. Ordered one more than a week ago-paid an extra $5 bucks for the expedited S/H. Still no phone-still no update on the tracking number.

    Guess who is in the dog house for recommending she buy from this company?

    I still get paid but no gift from the gov't. Do you think people will complain when they learn that their gift will be taxed?
