OUR HOUSE ON THOMPSON STREET ....

CONTINUED FROM YESTERDAY....

" I might have told you this already (this is the 301st story after all), having 

another job in California except the one I'll tell you about tomorrow...."

I don't know how I got the job but it was a good paying job at about $1.74 an

hour if I remember correctly. It was with the Southern Pacific Railroad and I 

worked in an office dispensing office supplies to office workers. I remember 

at the time that I had to buy a brand new pair of black dress shoes and I don't

recall why I needed to have them. They cost $20 and I needed to work a little

over a day and a 1/2 to pay for them. I don't remember how long I worked at

this job but I know the draft board finally caught up with me and all my 

attempts to outrun them finally ended in failure. Like Bonnie and Clyde without 

the Bonnie....

"I do not shop at stores unless they are at least as 1/2 as friendly as I am. That 

would mean me being overly friendly they would have to be at the least friendly

Thanks a lot, Google.


MONEY

I went down to my bank yesterday to change an investment that I now had 

in a money market account. It has made for me a grand total of $0.17 during

the last couple of months more or less. I don't know if I can even buy a piece 

of penny candy for that, inflation being what it is. The first time I went in the 

branch manager was talking to someone else. The nice, courteous and 

pleasant tellers behind the counters said that it would be a few minutes. Sure 

it would. I made myself a coffee and stood for a few minutes. As a good 

observer and/or listener of human behavior I could tell by the actions and the 

conversation between the branch manager and the customer that it would be 

much more than a few minutes. I told the nice and courteous young woman what 

I just said in the prior sentence and said that I would come back some other

time. I had somethings to buy at a grocery store near there, but I won't give to

you the name of the grocery store for two reasons.

1.  Almost everything is too expensive compared to Walmart and Save A Lot.

2.  There is a rat fink in the store that I told you about in a story before, so I ain't

going to tell you the whole story, but that I know who the rat fink is, that person

knows that they are a rat fink, but I don't believe that that person knows that I 

know that that person is a rat fink. You all confused? If you are that makes two of

us. 

Well, I got everything I needed, paid for them at the self-checkout and forgot

to get my $1 bill out. I promised myself that I would not pass a Salvation Army

kettle without giving. So I give a $1 bill when I enter and a $1 bill when I leave.

So, with that accomplished I went to the Honda and placed the bagged items in

the front passenger's floor. I looked over to my bank and decided to try it again.

Just after entering the door I could see that the branch manager might be 

available. He saw me and told me to have a seat in his office. I ain't going to 

mention any names because of the privacy act which everyone obeys except 

for the federal government.

Well, it looks like I ain't going to be able to finish this part of my story. It's almost

kickoff time meaning I'll have to post this story before 6:00 PM EDT like I 

promised. "Until we meet again" tomorrow.

TO BE CONTINUED....

HEALTH

I told you all about my swollen feet. And now, finally they're back to normal 

because of the water pill and its friend, another pill, that the water pill needs 

to work. I just counted the pills (8:25 AM 12/13/2016 EDT) and I have two pills

of each, including today. I'm hoping that the swollen feet will not return. If they

do, I guess I'll have to take those two pills for the rest of my life. And you all 

know, I ain't going to like that at all.

THE US PRESIDENT ELECT 

*Green Party candidate Jill Stein has lost once again. Poor woman, and she's

going to be more poorer if she don't stop fighting her loosing battles. But I just

heard that a federal court overturned a ruling to allow a recount in Michigan 

and a recount in Pennsylvania would be much to expensive for her.

She insists that her purpose is to test the integrity of the voting process and not 

to overturn the election to Clinton. 

The result of the recount gave President-elect Trump 571 more votes in the win

over Hillary Clinton, Trump adding 1,284, Clinton adding 713 and Stein 

adding 66 more votes to her 4th place finish. 


*You all might have heard (not you young whipper snappers, of course) of the 

old saying "a penny saved is a penny earned." Well, the President-elect wants 

to cut federal government agencies budgets by 1 penny for every $1.00 spent.

That would mean, for instances, if an agency with a 100 billion dollar a year and

a penny subtracted for each dollar, that agency's budget for next year would be

99 billion and the next year 98 billion and etc. and etc.


MY OPINION

The U.S. MINT could stop making the penny (Canada has) and the two-dollar 

bill. That would save a lot of money. President Lincoln's face is on the penny but 

also on the $5 dollar bill so he shouldn't be too upset. President Jefferson's face 

is on the two-dollar but also on the nickel so he shouldn't be too upset either 

unless he'd be upset about the $1.95 step down in value. And another thing, 

they're both dead, as far as I know, so it don't matter anyway. 


*The President-elect has announced that he will turn over the reigns of his world

wide companies to his adult sons before his inauguration on January 20 and no new 

business deals would be made while he is President. 


*Trump has chosen former Texas governor Rick Perry to head the Department 

of Energy. Perry once said he would abolish the agency. His stance is to return 

to fossil fuels and somewhat away from renewable energy, but as the governor 

of Texas he was an advocate of both. Much of the energy departments budget 

is spent on maintaining the nation's inventory of nuclear weapons, dealing with 

nuclear waste, funding the national laboratories and funding research in fossil and 

renewable energy. This is another instance of the President-elect hiring his 

former critics.Perry once referred to Trump's campaign as a “barking carnival 

act.”

I'm now making my 1st breakfast sandwich of the day (7:53 AM 12/13/2016 EDT)

having made my 1st pot of Folgers about (5:44 AM 12/13/2016 EDT). The sardines 

are called Cole's sardines in pure olive oil (not extra virgin olive oil) and the 

boxed container of the can says 400mg of sodium. They didn't taste salty so I got

my sea salt grinder out and did a number on it. The box goes on to say that

the sardines are a product of Portugal and are wild caught off the coast of the 

North Atlantic Ocean and are sealed (I have no idea what that means?) in pure 

olive oil. I thought that for as much as I paid for these sardines they would be a

lot smaller, but there were only 3 big fish in the can and now I'm getting that 

much closer to dying of mercury poisoning.


I just received a phone call (8:40 AM 12/13/2016 EDT) on the house phone from

____________. That someone phones here often eventually asking for money 

and is a smooth talker. Well, I out smoothed that someone today. I told that 

person that I had a doctor's appointment and was getting dressed to go. This

being Tuesday, I didn't tell the caller my appointment was on Friday. So, that 

was a lie. I don't believe that lie hurt anyone so I believe it's all right to tell. Like I

said I do have an appointment on Friday at the Cleveland Clinic Wooster for a 

stress test and maybe I could say I'm starting to get dressed 4 days early.

That durn house phone is "ringing off the hook." (9:03 AM 12/13/2016 EDT)

This time it was Rite Aid informing me that I have eye drops to pickup.

I'm going outside to take the outgoing mail out to the mailbox so I won't have to

listen to that phone ringing for about 15 minutes.

The temperature was 25° and the humidity was 78%. The wind is blowing from

the south enough to make the American flag at the northeast border pole to

stand out in all of its glory. Maybe 10 mph. Using the dew point calculator at 

http://www.dpcalc.org/, I get a reading of 25%.

Out to garage (11:54 AM 12/13/2016 EDT) for the first time today. I had to get a 

loaf of bread and two cage-free eggs that I store in the refrigerator out there.

I told you before how I eat one egg each day by tapping both ends and sucking 

out the innards hoping there is no meat. The temperature has changed alot from

25° earlier this morning to 32° right now. The humidity is the same and "Old 

Glory is silent now on the northeast corner pole. So, both the wind chill and the 

dew-point have changed. Using the two online calculators from above, I get a 

dew-point of 26% and a wind chill of 32°, of course, no wind.
