    Today I was given a 20lb. propane tank.
    Brand new and full.

    Now if someone would give me some steaks I'd be set.

    Maybe you're not a good chooser....had experience with craziness and watched lots of friends go through he## multiple times and try and make it work...my take was that they were not choosing the sane ones...also, my friends didn't make things easy either

    I just had a client give me a very nice ss grill, but kept his tank. One more tip of some steaks and we'd be all set.

    Sounds like me a little bit, well, I like to have my dog and would love to get a second one sometime, that's about it.

    I am 21 and have been single for....21 years. I bet I will be single for another 21 years.

    I have a customer with a huge flower garden. When she thins it out, she gives me extra bulbs and cuts from perennials. Since I take care of the grounds for the condos where we live, I've been able to add lots of nice touches to the landscaping here.

    I was given a pocket watch collection (24) by a long time customer cleaning out his possesions before he passed, along with 3 handguns. That was about 6 years ago. I still have everyone and had them appraised at $12,000. They were great customers and never had children and thought of me as their own. I sure miss good folks like that. On the other hand, I still get Christmas cards and gift cards from most of my clients and am sure to always include them on my card list.

    I received a $500.00 going away gift when the client said he wanted to go in a diferent direction. He didn't give me anything 8 months later when he called me back and said sorry.
