Robbie Rich's Retirement
"Hey, what do you think we are, a
bunch of rich dudes with more money than brains? What kind of
dumb-bunny would send Rob Johnstone ten bucks
(20 with shipping and handling!) so he can retire before us? It would
take about 15,000 suckers to send in that amount of dough. Does that
arrogant yahoo really think we are going to do that?" - Lou Pole,
Desires End, Wisconsin
Editor's Note: Good question, Lou.
When we tried to get a hold of Rob to ask him, he was unavailable and
his mail was being forwarded to Costa Rica …
"I found the Industry Interview to be
confusing and actually just odd. Am I missing something? You didn't
run the interview because Gen-Go-Life is a big advertiser, did you?"
- Norma Leigh Lucid, Oblivion, South Dakota
Editor's Note. Yes. No.
Fine as Frog's Hair?
"Thanks for the info on the FINE
Groomin' Group! I've needed the extra-powerful nose hair removal for
a long time – plus, besides removing my Bunyans, it got rid of that
blue ox that's been stinking up the place for years, too! Sweet!" -
Sa. S. Kwatch, Ketchmeifyoukin, Montana
"I tried the Compact Project Storage
from Tricks of the Trade, but I added my own twist. Since one of my
favorite things to make is tables, I canned some of my favorite meals
I've served on them to go in the same Ball Jar as the table where it
was served. I have a question, though: I scraped some absolutely
divine meatballs and spaghetti leftovers in with my Maple Country
Table, and now when I sit in my La-Z-Boy® and watch TV, I can see a
big bulge in that jar on my mantle. Also, I keep hearing a lot of
howling and seeing some glowing red eyes and gleaming white fangs
outside my window. Should I be concerned?" - K. Lew Less, Wostin in
Editor's Note: As long as you have
some silver bullets on hand, you should be fine.
I Am the Greatest?
"That Dill guy in WebSurfer's Review
thinks he's so hot because he can drill press up to 10" in
diameter? Huh? Well, I've got him beat – I'm pressing 14" inches
and up. Who cares about the exercise benefits; this is about bragging
rights: any time, any place; bring it on, buster!" - Tim
A "Very Special" Offer
"Saw your item about Twofer Tools and
thought woodworkers might be interested in another great deal: two
bridges for the price of one! Diversify on either side of the
mainland – one of 'em's golden!" - Brooke Lynn, Bridges, New York
"Kin u put me in touch wit Ima B.
Leever? I tink she mite of bin my kinnergarden teach." - Les B.
Hind, Pothole Junction, Idaho
Editor's Note: Ima might already
have left for her South American cruise, but we'll pass along your
4-1 (one), as the kids say these days.
