Depression

I was walking around downtown with LP and PW today.  Saw yet another headline that mentioned recession and was contemplating the symptoms and signs that the country's in a recession.  Then I walked into the local pawnshop and looked at all the recently hocked tools.  When the people who build this country are pawning their tools of the trade to pay the rent, it's a bad, bad sign.

I would start pawning off body parts before tools.

post script.
Thank you.
That would have taken me two days, mumbling nasty words under my breath the whole time.
It took 3 sec's to unload (lie 4, I had to watch them get crushed in the smusher)
THEN I drive by the sea of soccer moms @ school... and there's one soccer dad!

hmmmm. e-mail? phone? but then there's no play list in the backround.....

Man, I was going blog about that, but I opened more wine and then had to spend an entire hour responding to an email from our senator and now I'm just typed out. That sushi was damn fine, but that wasabi tomibuki whatever the fuck sauce was the bomb. The wine went well too, didn't it? I do love this town! Eat it, Mastercard;)
