                    No, you misunderstand.
                    You said: "nobody to write to"...
                    I said: "note to self".

                    In other words, "take matters into your own hand".

                    A simple play on words.
                    Aw, hell... nevermind.

                      Like everything else, started with quitting coffee cold turkey, and before you know it we're talking baseball.

                      Just be careful and don't use too much pine tar

                      Who was it that got busted with pine tar beyond the 18" mark

                        I got it Doc and that was funny. Lately I seem a bit more confused about life and don't want to offend by accident. I was in my mid twenties when I worked for that guy and he was a character. Funny how I'm able to relate to a lot of his old stories now that I'm older.
                        One quick story. When I first worked in his gang three of us linemen were sent to replace a telephone pole that had been hit by a car. He assured us it was not broken below grade. He said he checked it and we would not have to waste our time, just get it stable with the truck boom and place a new pole right next to it. Well, we took his word which was a mistake, with one guy up in a bucket, I extended the boom and grabbed the top of the pole with the claws. Sure enough the pole snapped at the broken base and headed for the street. We all dove for cover, and the pole bounced about five to ten feet from hitting the ground with the cables offering support. We were angry and shaken but it made for a funny story later on. No casualties.Frank

                            Please stop talking about food. Now all I can think about is a nice turkey on toast with mayo and a cup of coffee! A couple eggs over, corned beef hash as a side order.

                                Whenever I've gotten the flu bug and had to lay off the coffee for a few days, I remember having a headache by the second day that I attributed more to withdrawal than to the virus.
