    OT: 90 Days

    I have 90 calender days left at work, for the last 43 yrs I have walked through the doors of a state office (Roads}. And that will end on Oct 2nd, it is a bitter sweet time for me. I have been telling stories of some of the stuff I have seen and done in those 43 yrs. It is time for the young bucks to take over. I just wish that they would listen to me when they ask for advice.But it is up to them to make thier minds up. I can only tell them what I would do. I have had many close calls (Death/ injuried) I got luckly about a month ago, when a backhoe swung around nearly hitting me. I hit deck, got up and the backhoe operator was white as a ghost. I got lazy and didn't let him know that I was behind him. So it was my fault. I have also had 4 ribs broken and a wrist. I got pinched in a semi trailer and broke the ribs., and when I broke my wrist I was trying break my fall and trying not to get stuck by some rebar. Okay enough of this. I think it will be a sad last day, but I wont have to worry about jobs anymore and can sleep at night.

    Shoot you haven't lived if you haven't experienced a party line. Watch a few episodes of The Andy Griffith show if you don't know what a party line is. My mom could keep track of me...without a GPS.

    "Huskers Together"...

    Whitney Brown: https://spark.adobe.com/page/KYotDlg3KlY05/ “Team chemistry is going to play a huge role in our success this year, and I am not one bit worried about it because from the minute all of us girls stepped in the weight room together, joined Zoom calls, or texted in our group messages, you could sense the team chemistry,” Brown said. “From my perspective, we’ve already got great teamwork, encouragement and a strong bond. We scrimmaged each other a couple times, had movie nights and team bonding activities and have been working out together the past three or four weeks. Week by week, we are getting closer together and stronger on the court."

    Huskerpapa: I remember our party line call was three rings, but nobody cared since everyone knew that everyone else on the line picked up any ring. You could tell how dull your conversation was by the number of quiet "clicks" you heard as people gradually hung up. That included the operator who listened in to everyone in town when she was bored.

    OT: The 4th

    Lift ev'ry voice and sing 'Til earth and heaven ring Ring with the harmonies of Liberty Let our rejoicing rise High as the list'ning skies Let it resound loud as the rolling sea Sing a song full of the faith that the dark past has taught us Sing a song full of the hope that the present has brought us Facing the rising sun of our new day begun Let us march on 'til victory is won Stony the road we trod Bitter the chastening rod Felt in the days when hope unborn had died Yet with a steady beat Have not our weary feet Come to the place for which our fathers sighed? We have come over a way that with tears has been watered We have come, treading our path through the blood of the slaughtered Out from the gloomy past 'Til now we stand at last Where the white gleam of our bright star is cast God of our weary years God of our silent tears Thou who has brought us thus far on the way Thou who has by Thy might Led us into the light Keep us forever in the path, we pray Lest our feet stray from the places, our God, where we met Thee Lest, our hearts drunk with the wine of the world, we forget Thee Shadowed beneath Thy hand May we forever stand True to our God True to our native land

    Well you know looking back at it I can't believe it's been 43 years when I first started out you know it's 5 years and then 10 years and you're like oh golly I got long time to go and then at about 20 years you just kind of stop thinking about it and here it is it's creeped up on me and I'm being very nostalgic I guess just remembering some of the stuff that we did and and we have seen through the years. So yes from about 20 years on it seems to go really fast.I just wish my body felt better than it did but it is what it is. I have rheumatoid arthritis and in the winter it's really hard to get up and go to work not so much in the summer with the warmth and stuff but if I sit a long time and have to get out and do something I get real you know I'm stiff but it is what it is Sent from my moto z3 using Tapatalk

    I hope it does. Could you imagine a super team coming out of the MEAC to win it all? I'd be down for it.

    That wreaks conference-only hoops to me. Very very early though. We have to remember to put into perspective that we are 4 months into this, talking about a basketball season that is originally scheduled 4 months from now. A lot will happen between now and then.

    Without exaggeration, that young man totally transformed his body. He has had to added a foot to his vertical as well. Wow, just wow.

    I'm not sure people realize how much money they are losing. Whenever I ask someone how they did in Vegas they always say how much they won. All those new casinos are not going up because people are beating the house.

    You must have more luck than me. The couple times I went to a casino, I limited myself to a certain amount of losses, played slots and hit my loss limit within about 20 minutes. Hung out in the bar and watched TV from there until my group was ready to go. Decided that was no fun and wasn't ever going back to a casino. To this day, I'm just astonished at all the cars/semis pulled into casino parking lots at like 11 a.m. whenever I pass places on the highway that have them.

    So, kinda the back-story on this: I'd seen bottles of 18-year-old MacAllen behind locked glass at liquor store displays in the past. A year ago, that stuff was probably bringing $250/bottle. Now, it's more like $300. And I always thought that was a hell of a lot of money to spend on hooch. Really good hooch, to be sure, but hooch nevertheless. As I was sitting on my patio on 4th of July, watching neighbors all around me light off half my net worth in fireworks, I recalled a time a few years back when I decided to splurge on fireworks and bought a couple of these and a few of those and, what the hell, that $50 thing would make a grand finale, etc., and my eventual tab rung up to probably around three hundred bucks. But, somehow, lighting it all off was strangely dissatisfying. Three hundred bucks didn't generate as long of a show as you might expect. Each $20-$30 item was maybe not quite as spectacular as I'd imagined it might be. And I decided I wasn't going to do that again. So, as I sat on my patio watching my neighbors almost literally burning through money, I started thinking about other similar-cost purchases and what kind of utility you might get out of them. And I ended up deciding that I could make the "fireworks" from a $300 bottle of top-shelf single malt scotch last a bit longer and be a bit more satisfying than a bunch of gunpowder that would go up in smoke in one evening. I didn't buy the scotch, though, either. I'm actually thinking about buying a carbon steel Japanese chef knife for roughly the same price. Because that bitch should last for-frickin-ever and help me produce some fine eating for a lot of friends and family to enjoy over the course of a lifetime -- and then be worthy of inheriting once I pass from this life. If you'd have been willing to consider blowing up $300 worth of fireworks on 4th of July, are there any other roughly $300 things you'd now think differently about buying, having read this thread? That compound miter saw you've had your eye on, perhaps? Some new fishing tackle? Upgrading your basketball seats? It's the off-season, guys. Talk to me.

    I do not for the life of me recall ever seeing a Confederate statue. Yet somehow I possess the knowledge that the Civil War occurred. Every child the United States learns about some version the Civil War in an American history class which includes the amount of death and destruction that happened. My wife grew up in North Carolina where their version is referred to it as 'the war of northern aggression'. The confederate statues are symbolic of distorting that the South was fighting to keep slavery and erected to intimidate. Replace them with a general from the Union or slave freed. Replace them with a wounded soldier with whom you cannot tell the side. If the takeaway from this brutal and destructive point in our history wasn't that the right side won, we're doing it wrong.

    OT: Nebraska Star Beef

    Thanks for the love, guys! It's been nuts since all this insanity started. Online sales are through the roof. I've got restaurants on both coasts that are getting our products shipped to them. We've been averaging about 5000 lbs of ground beef shipping out every week. We do some stuff with Adam Carriker. Right now, we have a 15% discount off your total order if you use the promo code Carriker15 at checkout. And , as always, feel free to pm me if you have questions or want to place larger orders. I'll work with you.
