I hope I can run a 100 AMP breaker in the house box - I already ran 1 out for an addition and pool pump - I may have to add service (I hope not) or at least another box. Maybe just a sub-panel.

I am moving water from a shed to the garagemahal (doghouse) - I already have the small water heater I am going to use. I am at least going to put in a utlilty sink, something to wash my cars with, and a toilet.

good help is hard to get

A " BETTER BUISNESS BEREAU" representative came to my shop recently and told me i was not paying proper wages to my helpers
.'I need a list of your employees and how much you pay them,' demanded the rep.

"Well,' i said , "there's my top mechanic who's been with me for 3 years.
I pay him $500 a week plus commission plus free room and board. He also gets triple time for working on a Sunday
and a case of beer for a Happy Hour every Friday"

my painter has been here for 18 months, and I pay him $400 per week plus commission as well and
he doesn't work on Sundays and I provide paid satellite television for free in his room.

'Then there's the half-wit.
He works about 18 hours every day and does about 90% of all the work around here.
He makes about $20 per week, pays his own room and board, and I buy him a bottle of
whiskey every Saturday night. He also sleeps with my wife occasionally.'

'That's the guy I want to talk to...the half-wit,' says the agent.
'That would be me,' i said !!!

Beer, Fishing, Golf and Sex
A man was walking down the street when he was accosted by a particularly dirty and shabby-looking homeless man who asked him for a couple of dollars for dinner.

The man took out his wallet, extracted ten dollars and asked, "If I give you this money, will you buy some beer with it instead of dinner?"

"No, I had to stop drinking years ago," the homeless man replied.

"Will you use it to go fishing instead of buying food?" the man asked.

"No, I don't waste time fishing," the homeless man said. "I need to spend all my time trying to stay alive."

"Will you spend this on greens fees at a golf course instead of food?" the man asked.

"Are you NUTS!" replied the homeless man. "I haven't played golf in 20 years!"

"Will you spend the money on a woman in the red light district instead of food?" the man asked.

"What disease would I get for ten lousy bucks?" exclaimed the homeless man.

"Well," said the man, "I'm not going to give you the money. Instead, I'm going to take you home for a terrific dinner cooked by my wife."

The homeless man was astounded. "Won't your wife be furious with you for doing that? I know I'm dirty, and I probably smell pretty disgusting."

The man replied, "That's okay. It's important for her to see what a man looks like after he has given up beer, fishing, golf, and sex."

I was cruisin the backroads one day on a road similar to the one you are on. Bending my neck a little to see what was behind a house, my wife said honey, I kept looking, she said HONEY! I look up and the road just ended! Good thing she was with me or I would have been knocking on the door of said house to see if I could get a tow with a tractor. What do you think of the fine road that your president had built in Flintville from Vanntown to Highway 64? That's stimulas money. It is sure to stimulate the economy of quite a few: its so rough that tires will need replaced more often, the grooves with pull you off the road causing suspension and possibly body damage if you run into anything, and you might have to pay to get towed out of the ditch unless a tractor drives by.

Presidents don't build roads. State DOTs do.

Isn't that like saying, "Congress doesn't make laws, the secretaries who type them up do"?
