    abought 5oclock I was cooking dinner when the big bad state tax man came knocking on my door.Apparently someone turned me in two the state for operating a business without a license.So he ask me for my business and sales tax license,so i went and got them he had a look and said no problem sorry to disturb you. I think it was a guy at the end of my road who does some mowing,earlier this year one of the older gentelmen that live's on my street stoped and ask me what i would charge tomow his yard, I told him and he said that was more than he usally paid but his lawn guy but he had not been showing up.Any way that guy that was doing his lawn was the same guy that lives on my street and he was pis%#%$ maybe he thought it was a good way of getting back at me.

    Must be broke you know them state employes dont like to work after say ten oclock.I didnt bother me actually i like the idea that they have came and checked me out that way they wont be bother me any more. It was better for it to happen in the winter instead of spring,summer or fall when im busy,I guess im off the state M%# J%$. im glad there doing there job keep's certain people nervous and in trouble with the irs and helps keep prices where they ought to be.
