Happy New Year to you too.

And I hope you aren't doing any laundry today. It's bad luck.

Glad you got a kick out of that. I was never much of a drinker anyway. But I had heard that line when I was in my early teens and thought it so funny, and to the point too. So ever after when I've been offered that 2nd drink when I've got to drive later that night I remember that one tag line and say "no thanks!" Gave me a pause and a smile at the same time. A good friend of mine from high school had a Standard operating procedure. Assume averyone on the road after 9 is drunk. While a tad overly paranoid...just because you're paranoid doesn't mean they aren't out to get you.

According to my late Grandmother, doing laundry on New Year's Day was "washing away the soul of a loved one". I'm not particularly superstitious, but that's one "rule" I never break - not least because my Grandmother was a formidable woman and I like having kneecaps.

Here's to the DOT person who didn't move the carcass before painting the lines. (SALLLL-UTE!) (Those who've seen Hee-Haw will know what I mean)

AA -- I remember reading a story Ronald Reagan told about himself. When he was 14, he got hired by a building contractor to dig holes, use a pickaxe, whatever needed doing. His first ever job. His dad was to pick him up for lunch one day and came out to his work site. The noon whistle blew -- a signal that the guys could take their lunch break. Reagan had the pick axe up in the air ready to swing on the down stroke. As the whistle blew Reagan simply DROPPED the pick axe. His father said "Son that is the laziest sumb*tch thing I have EVER seen!"
