Slow and easy

When you reach my age you want life to go by slow and easy. This summer is just the opposite for me. I have been very busy I have had to take a part time job to make ends meet. Like a lot of people my age my Social Security is not a very good security blanket at all, in fact I need to match what I receive from the government just to make things come out even let alone have some extra for the things I want to do. I have been thinking about going back to work full time to keep my busy and to have some extra money. This is not something that I want to do but I may be forced to keep up my life style.

It makes me cuss

I have taken a new job to supplement my fixed income and I get very angry when I am made to wait on slow people. The ones in traffic and the ones at the stores I go to pick up the tires I am delivering, time is money to me and if I have to wait 20 minutes for them to round up the tires it cuts me out of a run or maybe two where I can make more money for my family. Just pick up the pace when I get there and all will be well for all of us.

Parts Cars

My daughter wrecked her car again. Second time in a ┬ámonth. The car was just a clunker, but it got her back and forth to work and her boyfriend’s house. That saved me the extra time, money for gas, and trips driving her around town.

The car will cost way too much to repair after this last fiasco. I’m going to list it on Craiglsit as a parts car and see if I can salvage a few hundred dollars from it. Surely someone will pony up $300 or $400 dollars for car – the tires are worth over $200 just by themselves.

Best Burgers

Around here, the best hamburgers at a fast food place has been a chain of burger places out of Memphis: Backyard Burgers. Their burgers are made from Angus beef, are formed thick and juicy, and are grilled instead of fried. The basic burger comes with a leaf or two of romaine lettuce, a slice of fresh tomato, a couple slices of purple onion, and a couple of pickle chips. They have specialty burgers with other options, such as a variety of cheeses and types of sauces. I like their seasoned fries but they also offer waffle cut fries and their milk shakes are made with real Breyers ice cream. This is great food, ya’ll, and at a fair price.
