This Week

This week 04-28-15 Lay-z-boy-BBQ I had to go to the court house to fix a speeding ticket a few years ago. It was a good kind of speeding ticket. I told the officer I was late for a meeting (which I was) and that I was sorry.

This Week

This week 04-07-15 Arm and arm I had to go to Austin Tx with my sister several years ago. Kind of a last minute thing. We checked to see what it would cost to fly out of Memphis. $1500 each round trip.. Yikes!!!!! That's $100 and hour each to drive.. I'm expensive, but not that expensive. My brother said to check flights out of Little Rock. I thought that deal had kinda gone away, . But I was wrong..$400... That's a 2 hour drive to Little Rock, but now I'm at $30 and... Read More
