Last week a man walked into my yard to look at my Adirondack chairs, he didn’t look like a typical tourist or other stranger that would be walking the streets of a small town in NewEngland. He was dirty, unshaven, and looked like one of those homeless who push shopping carts with everything they own. I don’t make a habit of berating people I don’t know but this one started off all wrong for me. He asked the price of one of the chairs, then asked “how much for a disabled veteran?” I said the same price for everyone. “Well” says he, “I used to make a lot of furniture and I can see that in a couple hours and some scrap lumber, I could build that chair for half that much.
I turned, walked in the house. He stood there 3-4 minutes and figured out our conversation was over.

-- I cut it off 3 times and it's still too short!
