New Exercise Equipment

I put an ad on SoutheastTexas.com saying I had 4 tires with rims to give away that my son had left in my garage. (To paraphrase A Christmas Story, the tires were only tires in the academic sense of the word meaning they were round and had once been made out of rubber.) The catch was that you couldn't have the tires without taking my old refrigerator which was also taking up space in my garage. I've been trying to get rid of that refrigerator for months but, because of the freon, getting rid of an old refrigerator is a huge pain in the ass.

My tip for the day to you, if you have an old refrigerator to dispose of, is to just put an ad in your local classifieds offering it for free if they also take some of your other useless crap. I had ten responses to that ad. When I put an ad for the refrigerator alone, I got no responses.

Today, a guy came out and took the refrigerator and the tires. Now I have space in my garage for that exercise equipment I've been wanting to buy. Hahahahahaha! Oh, that was funny. Exercise equipment...hahahahahaha!

Great blog, keep the post coming. Btw, I grew up in Baton Rouge, lived in New Orleans and still have all my family in Louisiana. Boy do I miss the food.

Lorna - If I could blog on my treadmill, I'd be in much better shape.

Tree - The food is still fabulous.

Geez, Tex, you could have juggled three or four tires. Get plenty of exercise that way. (Oh, hell, I just remembered: You'd still have the refrigerator. You're a lot smarter than me.)

So, your oblique approach to clutter may help you approach your obliques?

Old Horsetail - Yeah, had to get rid of that refrigerator.

Comfort Addict - Very clever!!!
