WHAT!?! I thought you had upgraded to a Peterbuilt 579 so you could safely tow the Rockwood PUP you downgraded to!

On our very limited, fixed income, I have to collect alum. cans to sell for gas money for my broken down 05 Silverado. TOWTA is now taking in washing & ironing so she can put gas in her Old Junker.

a Vintage 1974 Screaming Ford Diesel. A real oil burner and leaker apparently, 500 miles to a quart.

Well the good news - if you reconsider and come to Nashville is there should probably be well over a $1,000 of aluminum cans laying around from the PPST revelry -- and I am sure that TOWTA can easily make her gas money for the next year taking in laundry from those folks who have stayed up late and cannot find time to keep their clothing clean!

OC, if you're open to suggestions, I know some folks who supplemented their retirement income very nicely by going into the iron and steel business. She'd iron, he'd steal.

I came from an iron and steal family on the wrong side of the tracks.

Not really, but it sounds good.

I really did live on the wrong side of the tracks in Trenton, MO. The west side was the "Upper crust" and we lived on the east side, but dad was a conductor on the Rock Island RR for 35 yrs.

He is really looking for "crowd funding". Don't let Coot tug on your feelings. Throw the cans in the trash can or give them to a worthy cause.

All he has to do is get some nice crisp cash out from under the rock pile in the back yard and spend it on materials for the awning kits.

I am no longer concerned about retirement. If I plant a rock garden will it grow lots of money prior to retirement.
