Did you hear about the St Jude’s Primary School Nativity Play?
Two children are dressed as Mary and Joseph, and they are on their way to the inn in Bethlehem.
Meanwhile on the other side of the stage, a lad in a shepherd’s outfit is on a mobile phone, calling to make a reservation.
The class assignment in composition was to write about something unusual that happened during the past week. Little Irving got up to read his. “Papa fell in the well last week – ” he began. “Good heavens,” shrieked Mrs. Kroop, the teacher. “Is he all right now?” “He must be,” said little Irving. “He stopped yelling for help yesterday.”
The art of giving directions is lost on this X-Y Generation they have no idea where they live. Example….. I get a phone call from this guy whom has locked himself out of his house, No kidding he could not tell me what a major intersection he lived closest too, he needs me to hurry and yet cant help me get to him any quicker, then he begins to blame ME for not having a GPS so I can find him. Crazy right? So he begins to explain that there is a Whataberger a Strip Club and a Mcdonalds close to his house, hello what about the HEB, Fire Station and CVS this guy was a mess 30 Year old educated big house, big car and not a lick of common sense….. i’m so sorry….So if you are one of these people, Learn to give directions, your friends and Family will love you!
It’s been one heck of a summer here in San Antonio, we’ve had a terrible drought this year, tree’s are dying and the grass is drying up. My backyard is a mud pit right now. Fortunately, the last couple of weeks we’ve finally had a respite, and it’s been raining again. It’s funny, after a good rain we always get service calls and complaints from people about their key getting ”stuck” in the lock, or the locks not working smoothly anymore. Alas… all the lubrication has been washed out. It’s a good idea to keep your locks lubricated on a regular basis, not just after a down pour. Common wisdom is to use a graphite product, and if you go to e-how.com that’s what they will tell you, however in our experience, in south Texas it’s too humid and the graphite gets sticky/muddy, and does not stay smooth and dry. It’s better in dry/cold climates, we recomend a Teflon based spray lubricant, or in a pinch, WD40. WD40′s a better cleaner then lubricant but it works ok, a good teflon lubricant (Dupont, Tri-Flow) will outperform it and last longer however. In our shop we sell Tri-Flow and it works great, as the boss says, “locksmith in a can”.
