Muscially Blessed

It was going to be a good week when the 'rents flew up in their little plane to meet us for coffee and we got a plane ride. The great part was that "Live and Let Die" was playing as we took off.

Another GNR classic came on - Paradise City while I began my lunch break today

Its the life of a Big Hair RockStar I lead here!

ANother day

Well, sorry I've been away so long. I have been traveling to different Department outposts doing open records meetings. While I think it terribly unfair that the Department can come and take your property, to add insult to injury the force you to pay the expense of having your attorney travel to say, Tennille Georgia, and look through some documents and mark them and then you have to pay for you can see this all adds up and it is not a cheap process to defend your property against the government.

I must say most of the employees of the DOT I have met are nice folks and they seem to be doing their jobs well. I've always said the state of Georgia has the best roads in the nation.

On the personal front there is not a whole lot going on. I'm trying to buy some scaffolding so I can paint my house and work on the dormers. ITs such a pain to buy stuff off craigslist. My Explorer's conneciton for trailer tail lights doesn't work and so I have to wait till the weekend to go get the scaffolding and I don't know if they will still be available then. We'll just have to wait and see. I guess I can give the guy a call today and see what's shaking.

Ben Around Da World

Howdy folks, sorry I've not been around so much. I've been traveling around this lovely state helping my folks get their money out of the courts. So far so good. More traveling to look at maps. Maps Maps Maps. gGet excited about the maps. they are everywhere.

We like to look at the maps in this line of business.

I just settled my first case today people! It was huge. This morning, wifey was involved in a fender-bender which she may or may not have caused. This happened at approximately 9:00am. By 2:00 pm today I had the nice lady who's car may or may not have been struck by the wifey's car with a check in hand for the damage and I had a waiver of any future claims.

Yes folks, I settled my first case today. And that is something to drink to!

I think I'll list "Mad Settlement Skilz" on my resume.

I went to the dentist today. I should have been a dentist. That is a helluva job. Expecially if you could find people with good tooth genetics, like, say ME.

Yes folks, I don't mean to jinx myself but I have some good teeth. I have had two fillings in my 29 years. Yet I am always afraid of going to the dentist. I can't imagine the dread if I never had a cavity at all.

However, I must say I have some good and crooked teeth. My teenage neglect in the department know as the dreaded retainer has reared its ugly head. I now have an appointment with the orthodontist to explore my options with regard to something called a "spring loaded retainer". Sounds like wearing a bear trap to me.

Have a good weekend!
