Would you drive 50 miles for a hardware store visit? -- Paris Hilton [below]
Toay I would if I could but I can't. Sometimes I would, sometimes I wouldn't. There generally isn't a need, of course, to travel that far for a hardware item.
Right now Mrs. Jim or friend, Charlie, would have to drive me that 50 miles to the north to visit Dawkins old time hardware store. My 'immobilizer' (link to picture)(link to what happened) won't let me drive.
202 Main St
Normangee, Texas .
In case you wouldn't figure, there are 135 'hardware stores' closer to my home. I used the 'quotes' because this is a Yahoo classification. Some day I might like to visit this store because my friend owns the grocery store there just down the street. (Westmoreland Grocery, Main St & 2nd St, Normangee, Texas)
In the meantime, I'll stop here, only eight miles away:
Since every one is blogging this week about Paris Hilton, I thought I'd add this picture for another two cent's worth.
It's the Hilton Paris, we've been there, it's very nice.
Paris' Daddy owns it (mostly).
To answer your question we have short cold winters but no snow were I live. Im about 2hrs from the snow resorts. but oh boy we feel the cold icy winds. bring on the warm weather. .
Sorry you are unable to drive - -
It's not fun, is it? but yours is only temporary. Be patient and buy
your hardware locally!!
Thanks for your comments, sorry about your friend who drank himself to death, and glad the male teacher
friend survived BC.
Take care, Regards, Merle.
