  • Canary Yellow

    Jim strolls into the paint section of a hardware store and walks up to the assistant.

    "I'd like a pint of canary colored paint," he says.

    "Certainly," says the clerk. "Mind if I ask why you need it"?

    "My parakeet," says Jim. "See, I want to enter him in a canary contest. He sings so sweetly that I know he's sure to win."

    "Well, you can't do that!" the assistant says. "The chemicals in the paint will almost certainly kill the poor thing!"

    "No, they won't," Jim replies.

    "Listen, buddy, I'll bet you ten bucks your parakeet dies if you try to paint him."

    "You're on!" says Jim.

    Two days later, Jim comes back looking very sheepish and puts ten dollars on the counter in front of the clerk.

    "So, the paint killed your bird"?

    "Indirectly," Jim says. "He seemed to handle the paint okay, but he didn't survive the sanding between coats."

    When a work lifts your spirits and inspires bold and noble thoughts in you, do not look for any other standard to judge by: the work is good, the product of a master craftsman.

      Being a diet controlled type 2 diabetic, I check my glucose. Checked before my shot on Tuesday it was fine. Checked on Wednesday after a morning walk expecting to see less than 100 and about fainted when it read 158. Every check has been 150 or more since then. Started reading and yes, the shots can...

      Not yet Jim. The corners of the baskets to appear to be drawn by hand or just a bad copy. The price might go up. Thanks Linda. For some reason I really like doing layered baskets. And my customers like buying them. Bruce read a blacklight shows glue spots. Guess what he bought me from harbor freight...
