#397288 Main Street

Is a certain funeral home putting in the crematorium? 

About half the funerals we have gone to lately have ended in cremations. It only makes sense. I suppose they are currently sending the bodies out of town. Might as well keep the business here.

thought Sheetz had bought that building for the expansion

Nope, our favorite funeral director bought it. Can one have a favorite funeral director or is that too weird?

Oh, so this is like the city dweller who is looking for some good  old county living, builds next to a farm and then complains about the odors, the early morning noise and those dang pigs?

Hope they have a chapter on "The Buck Stops Here" wherein they teach that the owner is the one who has to do all they crappy jobs that aren't in anyone's job description and he is the one who doesn't get paid if they can't meet the payroll.

We also made national news for the peanut butter hotdog and the person who kicked out a window in a police car in, I think, Burger King's parking lot.

Keep reading and you will learn that APBs go out for wayward cows and horses, the police have to take care of bears that decide that an all you can eat food bar is available in the city and what they put down on high school fields is a major concern. We complain about a school system that probably puts out a better product than most major cities and mostly if someone gets shot it has something to do with a rifle and a four footed critter. Oh, and school hamburgers that are gross. Did I forget anything?

#396671 Who's got chickens?

Know someone who gives non-laying chickens to the Amish because she is too sentimental to kill or eat them. I'm sure they take good care of them until they die of natural causes. :rolleyes:

I was just teasing. With the right mix of breeds you can save money on dye ;)

I'm fairly sure that dye is less expensive than chicken feed. Not as heavy either. Met a fellow in the supermarket today who was telling me about his chickens. Said he has over 100 of them at one time and they lived on the farm all by themselves with no human companions.  He apparently had a couple of helpful uncles. His last words were, "Don't ever buy a farm." And if you are wondering why I was discussing chickens with a complete stranger in the supermarket that is the way it is around here.

Who dyes eggs? ;)

Me. I make Easter baskets too complete with homemade chocolate Easter eggs. I'm weird that way.

This is what comes of not educating students. Seems to me that we learned that succession list in about 6th grade Civics. I shudder to think what will happen of these "I want it! I want it!" people ever get their hands on the constitution.

We get free range eggs from friends and neighbors and the brown eggs that their hens produce are great for dying at Easter. They take the colors much better than the white ones from the grocery store.

Great story indeed.
Now just hope the building code inspectors don't show up forcing them to tear it out due to some stupid code violation or something.

Isn't that the truth? There are so many things that can't be done even for free because of regulations and insurance issues. Ask anyone who is willing to pitch in. Try doing an "Amish barn raising" if you don't happen to be Amish.

That's just educated redneck. None of you guys ever studied French?

Sure we have but we don't think much of it. Actually that is the way the family who the town was named for pronounced it and since some of them are still around we let them pronounce their name however they like. We even let the Polish, Lithuanians and what have you pronounce their names however they like even if the rest of us have to learn how to do it. For some reason the recent influx of Chinese have taken to calling themselves Bob and Hank. We don't understand it. :D
