I've decided my get rich plan is to make bumper stickers that say "My other car is a spinning wheel. I get really good yardage with it."

I'm sure it will make me $$$

OM45GE - Posted - 03/28/2014:  14:09:36


LOL That's a good one.



How about "My other car is a spinning wheel.  I'm just bobbin along."?

Mr. Quimby - Posted - 03/28/2014:  14:52:35


Oh! I like that.

OM45GE - Posted - 03/28/2014:  17:07:22

Great clip. Richard Thompson has always been one of my favorites, (his ex-wife Linda is great too). He and Jo El really get it on don't they?

dat - Posted - 03/31/2014:  09:17:23


Richard Thompson is quite a good picker, magic fingers

OM45GE - Posted - 03/31/2014:  09:27:41


He does some amazing things with chord structures and instrumentation too.

DeanT - Posted - 04/02/2014:  10:34:35


At least they don't have the curse of a goat...

or a Babe

DeanT - Posted - 04/02/2014:  16:18:39


or are from Kansas City in general

OM45GE - Posted - 04/02/2014:  16:46:09


Is being from KC a curse?

DeanT - Posted - 04/02/2014:  17:44:29


If you are into pro sports it is...

OM45GE - Posted - 04/03/2014:  02:40:27


We've had some good teams here in Boston, especially after the curse of the Babe was lifted and the Sox started winning again.

DeanT - Posted - 04/03/2014:  06:01:33


When was the last time KC won anything? See I told ya.... sort of like Detroit when I was growing up in Mi. ... we all rooted for Chicago teams

OM45GE - Posted - 04/03/2014:  07:25:18


I see what your saying.

dat - Posted - 04/03/2014:  07:33:32


I never have been much on pro sports, we have gone to a couple of Astros games just for something different, but even then I didn't keep up with them much.  seems like there is more needs to be done around the house than to watch games

chuckv97 - Posted - 04/03/2014:  08:33:42


If this is a game without rules or structure, then count me in.

dat - Posted - 04/03/2014:  08:49:00


it is very well structured,  we jest don't play with rules  approve

Rules, we don't need no stinking rules.

DeanT - Posted - 04/03/2014:  10:43:51


no one follows them anyway

OM45GE - Posted - 04/03/2014:  11:00:13


True

chuckv97 - Posted - 04/03/2014:  12:25:23


I never did know what a rule of thumb meant anyway

dat - Posted - 04/03/2014:  13:10:50


it means that you shouldn't beat your wife with anything bigger around than your thumb

chuckv97 - Posted - 04/03/2014:  13:13:38


shockOuch - did you quit beating your wife on Sundays? 

dat - Posted - 04/03/2014:  13:29:58


I'm more into the treat others like you want to be treated,   so I don't hit my bride and she doesn't hit me,  it's worked so far

OM45GE - Posted - 04/03/2014:  13:39:07


Words of wisdom.

Mr. Quimby - Posted - 04/03/2014:  14:01:18


I tried that "treating others like you want to be treated." I gave a whole bunch of people $20 and never got nothing back!

chuckv97 - Posted - 04/03/2014:  14:12:06


Your karma got a boost though

dat - Posted - 04/03/2014:  14:21:55


Yeah, it's better to push around Karma than to hit anybody else

DeanT - Posted - 04/03/2014:  16:00:35


me and my wife use our thumbs for holding hands

OM45GE - Posted - 04/04/2014:  03:21:00


I used to use mine for transportation.

I tried showing a little leg to get picked up while hitchhiking, but folks just drove faster by

OM45GE - Posted - 04/04/2014:  06:00:12


It used to be an adventure sometimes. I almost never see anyone hitchhiking now.

DeanT - Posted - 04/04/2014:  06:21:59


They don't want to end up on 20/20 or Dateline

OM45GE - Posted - 04/04/2014:  06:52:46


I know. There was someone from my town who they think was picked up by Ted Bundy back in the early 70's. I don't remember specifics except that he didn't let her out where she was going. She finally escaped a couple hours north and called the cops. The guy was long gone.

chuckv97 - Posted - 04/04/2014:  07:22:16


I read Kerouac's "On The Road" and had been listening to a lot of rambling songs in the 60's, so when I was 18 I hitchhiked across Canada ,coast to coast. This was 1968 ,and there were young folks all up and down the line hitchhiking,"lookin' for adventure". Twice I heard the tragic news on car radios- the MLK shooting, then later the RFK killing. What a turbulent,crazy time, looking back on it now.



 

DeanT - Posted - 04/04/2014:  09:10:18


My brother was one of those hitchhikers "finding himself". I was too busy back then racing bicycles and running marathons.

dat - Posted - 04/04/2014:  09:31:01


I wasn't born 'till '69,   so I wasn't hitch hiking then,,    I did my stupid stuff in the 70's and 80's,   well in the 90's too, and in the 2000's,  come to think of it, even now some of the things I do ain't that bright sometimes

Mr. Quimby - Posted - 04/04/2014:  10:10:25


I was reading a little thing about Cisco Houston and he was complaining in the '60s about the young people who were glorifying the hobos from the Depression era. He was saying that the young folks thought it was so awesome to be footloose and free but that he had ridden the rails when he was a kid and there was nothing romantic or fun about it. It was cold and hungry and dangerous and desperate.

But when you hear the songs that he sang or that Woody Guthrie sang, you don't get that sense of desperation. And then you toss in books like "On The Road" and the young folks were thinking "cool" instead of "thank goodness we don't need to do that."

Part of the thing I read talked about Cisco Houston quitting school and riding the trains looking for work when he was like 16. He worked his way up the West Coast and after several months had saved up $12, which was a fortune to him, so he headed back home to bring this fortune to his mother for the other kids still at home. On the trip back he continued to work and panhandle and such so that he would still have $12 when he got home (and in fact I think he got home with something like $12.45.)

I look at kids nowadays who expect they should have smart phones and a TV in their room and their own computer and a couple of wireless devices on top of all that and wonder if they have any concept of how good they have it. I bet none of them ever even considered hitting the road to do back breaking work to earn $12 to bring back to Mom.

chuckv97 - Posted - 04/04/2014:  10:24:44


Well,to defend myself. :-) , and I loved Cisco, I did farm work here and there to stay with the "program". But,yes, it wasn't the 1930's, and I knew if I was in big kaka I could phone home for help- course knowing my family they probably would've said " you're on your own now ,pal" ! 

dat - Posted - 04/04/2014:  10:32:11


I like a lot of the old Jimmy Rogers songs, it was a hard time but he sang about making the best of it.



we grew up not having much, my mother was raised 4 kids by herself being a kid herself, we didn't have much of anything. me moving away from home was a help for all.    I never wanted to hitch hike or hobo, but I would like to travel



and  I would like to see people rely less on electronics and get outside.

I think the "On The Road" generation was more in touch with reality than today's generation.  I listen to my coworker dealing with her kids (both college aged) and they start jobs, decide they don't like them, quit, hang around at home eating her food while they contemplate applying for another job.....  It's just crazy.

DeanT - Posted - 04/04/2014:  12:13:04


Extra work on the farm was what I got instead of getting grounded. When I left home at 18, it was like going on vacation. Nothing since has ever been as tough as stacking hey and shoveling zhit.
