So Tell Me...

As I reflected on the days events today...  I was struck with the difference between what I do and what the majority of you other peeps do on a daily basis.

Today wasn't exactly what I do on day in and day out, but it wasn't something that was strange either...

So I ask all of you...

When is the last time that you:
1.  Drove 100 miles in a day?
2.  Thawed out a water line with a large weed burner?
3.  Bought a ton of something?  No...  not a figurative ton, but an actual 2000 lbs of something.
4.  Checked the boundaries of a piece of property that you own to see if the fences were still intact?
5.  Moved some cattle to a different field so that they could have more to eat? (I'm betting this one is a never for most of ya...)

So tell me...  what say ye?

Just for a lark, write up a similar set of questions at your blog/website/fb/twitter thingamajig...  then let me know where it's at and I'll see how I stack up against YOU!

Today's mystery lyric: (Remember the rules folks, no online searching of the lyrics, if you don't know it, you don't have the answer!)

Well notorious I have been
But never for fame that's what she said
Dear Henry taste my whip
Never to see any words you print
Answer to last lyric: Howl by Beware of Darkness... Wicked awesome song there folks, click the link!

#1 - Back in November, drove 585 miles to Gatlinburg, Tennessee. However, we did stop 310 miles in, at Tamarak rest area. The meatballs are great there.
#2 - What is a weed burner?
#3 - River rock pebbles, for our side approachway. Filled the Ford F-150 to the max.
#4 - I cannot be fenced in. Alas, neither can my neighbors.
#5 - No cattle.

My questions to you.
#1 - Did you ever pet a burning dog?
#2 - When was the last time you stayed at a Holiday Inn?
#3 - After your visit at the Holiday Inn, did you feel smarter like the commercials lead you to believe?
#4 - How many sets of animals did Moses take on the ark with him?
#5- Does your bubble gum lose its flavor on the bedpost over night?

A weed burner is a large propane torch that you use to burn weeds or ditchbanks or stubblefields or...

1. No, but I have handled a hot dog, does that count?
2. I tried to stay at a Holiday Inn Express in Elko just before Thanksgiving actually, but they were sold out. I stayed at the Best Western instead...
3. Best Western didn't empower such knowledge... maybe that's why the HIE was booked...
4. All of them. If you're wanting to know specifics... it doesn't say, rather it says one pair of each unclean animal and seven pairs of every clean animal.
5. It never did for me... but then again, I never put it on the bedpost over night either...

Here in Ohio, we call them flame throwers...

1. No, but I have handled a hot dog, does that count?
2. I tried to stay at a Holiday Inn Express in Elko just before Thanksgiving actually, but they were sold out. I stayed at the Best Western instead...
3. Best Western didn't empower such knowledge... maybe that's why the HIE was booked...

The answer is none. It was Noah.
5. It never did for me... but then again, I never put it on the bedpost over night either...

I think you're wrong there GK... you obviously didn't read the scriptures of 2nd Repletions where it spoke of how Moses packed several sets of animals into the ark of the covenant... right next to the mashed potatoes....

1) February when I went to Toronto. It's about 320 miles one way.
2) Uh, never.
3) Does purchase a car count? Because I technically do that every day.
4) I don't have any fences. Oh wait. I don't own any property.
5) I used to feed grass to the cows down the street from where I grew up, but that's about it.

I'll just ask here:

When was the last time you:

1) Submitted contracts that would garner your employer roughly 250,000 dollars?
2) Drove in the snow to walk a picket line?
3) Had to negotiate with a rather casual about getting things fixed landlord?
4) Got a speeding ticket?
5) Tweeted?

1. I don't have an employer... but as to the contract question... last month.
2. Never. I would have driven down to the Bundy thing though if I could have gotten away.
3. I'm my landlord so... every day.
4. My last speeding ticket was probably over 20 years ago... it was a big one and I like to keep my money so I stopped speeding.
5. The birds have been tweeting all morning here... I'd hate to step on their toes.
