WOW ! is the world changing !!!

This morning I was out doing errands and stopped at a store.
Outside the store was a homeless guy (wino) standing by a trash can with his grocery cart full of old clothes and soda cans, and duct tape around his shoes, and a cardboard sign about anything will help and God bless. On top of the trash can was his laptop as he checked his Email in the free WiFi area !!!

Reports are that they make $300 tax free dollars a day at good intersections in Houston.

Ride 'em if you got 'em.

Some people see the gas tank as half empty. Some see it as half full. All I care is that I know where the next tankful is coming from...
