    Default Negative Turned To Positive - - GDG

    I have 3 cows on the neighbors property as well as 2 on mine.

    There's a Feed Store in our area that has two locations. He goes to one because it's two miles closer. I go to the other because it's close to the Pharmacy we use. He got an account set up in my name at "his" feed store. Today I had no need for groceries or medicine so I went to his.

    Most of you are aware that since they took a chunk from my jaw, tongue, lip, neck and chest, I have somewhat of a speech impediment. Some, including myself, might say I "talk funny".

    I walk in and tell the Lady "A friend set up an account for me here" and before I could say anything else she says "OK" & goes into the office and brings back a "gimme" Cap. I sort of giggle and she asks who got the cap for me.

    I finally made her understand that I was there to buy feed but "Thanks for the cap". She laughed a little and then gave me a calendar!!!

    I finally got my half ton of feed and got the Hell out of there!!!!

    I've understood every word of our phone conversations over the past several months.

    I guess the next time I hit my customer in "The Woodlands" I need to make sure we bring you along to order the drinks and meals at Papa Deaux's or wherever we go. I'm not sure exactly what we'll get, but I bet we'll love the price.

    Plus nothing I've ever had there is anything less than awesome.

    I think the girl at the Feed Store was just fascinated with my extremely handsome face!!

    Keep up the good stories Jerry.

    My father in law has been battling lung cancer for year. Yesterday after a further MRI scan brain secondaries were found. At this very hour, waiting for radiotherapy opinion results.

    I think of you often!!!

    They're on Enhance.

    I swear, I'm trying to break out of my talking yankee. I actually try hard to sound just like the guys with non-regional dialect that speak on the National TV news.....you know, Like Tom Brokaw, only without that "v" under the nose.
