I agree. I was just watching a episode of Movin' On and she was a rodeo owner.

Very hot in the 70's.

But yep, I'm a Mary Ann kinda guy.

I think they've been there for a few years. It's just becoming very obvious lately.

Re: Totally Random Thoughts... (Part II)


Buddy of mine (couple of years older than me) picked up a few bags of concrete today for a job we're on. He commented that "Generation X has arrived." (not sure if he knows the difference between that and millennials).

He was referring to the 50 lb bags the store had in stock.

Because gen xers are nothing but sacks of concrete or because they lightened the bags to 50 pounds for the candy asses to carry?

I'm 69. I'd still rather hump two 90 lb bags than four 50 lb'ers.

I don't see how that's possible. A couple years older than you is dead.

That's why I plan to avoid being a couple of years older than me as long as I can.

Have to admit, I've never checked his pulse.

What are you talking about? That's what Tin looks like when he's trying not to fall walking after carrying a 90lb. bag over his shoulder...

Some just figured out how to make money doing it...

Who wants to stock bags that are a "team lift"?

I bet 90lb roll roofing is 50lbs now, too...

I don't care what it weighs, just please don't make me go through twists and contortions to get it where it needs to go
