SIGNS OF AN ARIZONA SPRING ARE IN THE AIR
Noticed this morning when I poured myself a small glass of milk it had an odd taste & knew right away it was beginning to turn sour. It was the last of 3 small jugs of milk we had bought in Blythe California earlier in the week. Noticed the expiry date was Feb 10th. Figured we might as well head ourselves on over to Wickenburg’s Safeway grocery store & pick up a few things. Besides, I was wanting to have myself a look at some TSC pants.
With half a hundred dollars worth of groceries in the back we Jeeped ourselves a short distance from the grocery store over to Wickenburg’s Tractor Supply store whereupon I tried myself on three different sets of pants. Decided in the end on a pair of C.E. Schmidts durable dark tan work pants with a handy right leg pocket for my Canon point & shoot camera. And ‘NO’ they are not ‘old man’s pants’!! I even have a loop of material on the left leg where I can hang a hammer in case I have to stop along the way & fix a camera or maybe my wrist watch if it should unexpectantly stop sometime. Biggest problem I always have buying pants is not waist size but leg length. My legs have always been way too short for the rest of me & they don’t make leg lengths for short ass characters like myself so I always have to get them hemmed which means on today’s pants with a leg length of 30” I will have to get about 2” chopped off each leg before I can wear em. Well I could wear them but the legs bunch up like a couple crumpled stove pipes. Kelly said she’s gonna try sewing up the hems by hand but with heavier canvas like material that may be too tough a job. I’ll try these Schmidts out & if I like this style of pants I’ll go back to TSC & pick myself up a pair of American made Carhartts. Wasn’t until we were home I realized C.E. Schmidts are made in Egypt & didn’t have as good reviews as Carhartts. Carhartts are only about $12 more than Schmidts. Geeeezzzzzz, I’m getting to be quite the pants expert here all of a sudden. Oh & here is a bit of TSC trivia for you. Charles E. Schmidt founded TSC. (Tractor Supply Company)
Paul over at R Sanity RV Adventures has put himself a list together on what he & Marti have learned these past 3 years Fulltiming. It’s a list all RV’ers can identify with & for new folks just entering the lifestyle it’s a list they had better have a look at:))
WHAT A SNOOZER HEAD
GROANER’S CORNER:(( A man came home from the office and found his new bride sobbing convulsively. "I feel terrible," she told him. "I was pressing your suit and I burned a big hole in the seat of your trousers." "Oh, just forget it," consoled her husband. "Remember that I've got an extra pair of pants for that suit." "Yes, I know. And it's lucky you have!" said the woman, drying her eyes. "I was able to use a piece from them to patch the hole!"
