Wedding In July

A wedding in July only means that I have to dress up in a tux.  But I figured since I won’t be wearing it as often, I can actually buy them from  here  as they are a lot cheaper than renting them from the town bridal store.   Unbelievable but it is true, so I figured […]

Helping A Friend Move

When a friend is moving out of town, what do you do?  of course, help him if he asked you to or even if he doesn’t and reluctant to see him go, I would offer my help.  With some  lowboy trailers  , it would definitely have made things very easy but since we didn’t have […]
