Investments

I met the head of Atmos in Mississippi last night -- great guy and obviously very proud of his company. I wouldn't expect less. He was proudly telling me how his company had invested $300 million into the Mississippi economy and then he asked, "how many companies have done that?"

I answered, "I have -- I am redoing my kitchen."

He looked at me like I was from Mars.

P.S. Operation Tile Backsplash is now into the operational phase. I am staying out of it, other than the shifting around the financial means to fund it. I will be selling kitchen war bonds soon.

So are you going to draw dickie scruggs picture on your war bonds? Or just Mrs. R's happy face?

Marshall Ramsey said...

Don't think Dickie would be such a good idea at the moment and I only draw Mrs. R once a year on the Christmas card.

It's always amusing to see a person of affluence (or those with more money than brains) being presented with a normal people situation. They look like deer caught in the headlights!

So we will be stuck with a picture of a kitchen sink on the kitchen war bonds huh? Or sams cute face. Oh and speaking of Sam, when you get the spy cam going, be sure to post him getting stuck in that litter box. You described it so well, but I think a video of it would win you money on the planets funniest animals.

I'm not so convinced that Sam is cute. I caught him taking a dump on the carpet so I sprayed him with Lysol while chasing him through the house (he can run fast when he wants to) and then awoke the next day to find that he had taken another dump right next to my bed to show that he was boss.

Fat @#$#@.

heh. Too funny - love your comment to the Atmos guy. They often forget it is us little people who keep the community and economy ticking.

Marshall Ramsey said...

I think he honest probably wasn't expecting me to be a smart @#$

Yeah, I remember the time Mr. E decided to potty train Hungry Jack, the 22-pound cat, and this was after he left the kitten stage. The instructions said to remove the litter pan and spray vinegar all around, then put a small home with kitty litter around it on the thing that fit over the toilet seat and gradually increase the size of the hole. HJ took a dump on Mr. E's side of the bed, on the bed itself, so the litter pan went promptly back in place. That's the only time in HJ's life he did anything like that. They know how to get you back where it hurts the most.

LOL!! Poor Sam. Poor Marshall.

I know how you feel. fortunately I don't have carpet in my bedroom or I would have thrown my Prince out of the window last night because he decided his place to go was right under the head of my bed.

That smell wakes the dead. I can't handle it.

Do try putting some Pine scented pinesol on cotton balls at the foot and the head of your bed to discourage him. Cats can't stand the pine scent of Pinesol. Not the off brand pine stuff, but the real McCoy. I know you are thinking it will choke you, but don't put so much that it runs you out of the room.

My prince doesn't usually stay inside, so he doesn't have a place to go.
