    I talked to my cousin who talked to the oil guys. Here's the deal. Two wells are actually producing. That is "News". That means, I will get Royalties. It may not be Big Bucks. I have a low cost standard of living. According to their discussion, it may be $300-$600 a month. This is found money. I am not gloating. It's just amazing that a lease bought over 60 years ago has paid off.

    It's kinda like a record deal. The artist gets a penny or whatever on each record sold. I'm no artist. I'm just a guy who got lucky. They have two wells up and running. They may drill more wells if the two pan out. If they do it means Mo' Money. I am enjoying learning about this "Oil Thing". I find it amusing.

    I ain't no 4H'er. A rooster does what he does to attract hens. The "Call of the Wild". He just keeps it up all day long. "No Hens for You".

    Brewster the Rooster

    There once was a farmer who had a few chickens. For financial reasons, the farmer wanted to increase the egg production from his chickens and go into business. And so, the farmer set out to buy a rooster. He drove across the county to another farm that had many chickens and roosters.

    The first farmer asks, "I'd like to buy a rooster."

    The second farmer says, "No problem. What's he for?"

    The first farmer says, "I want a rooster so that my chickens can have more chickens and lay more eggs."

    The second farmer points to a rooster, "Okay. Take Brewster over there... he'll do all your chickens for you." The rooster he pointed out was lying on his back and breathing heavily.

    The first farmer exclaims, "What? You've got to be kidding. That rooster is practically dead! He's breathing like there's no tomorrow."

    The second farmer says, "Don't worry, he'll do fine. I guarantee he'll do all your chickens and you'll end up with more eggs than you could ever imagine."

    Well, the first farmer thinks about it, and finally agrees, "Okay. A guarantee is a guarantee. Sold." He scoops up Brewster and lays him in the back of his truck.

    As soon as the farmer pulls into his yard, Brewster leaps out of the truck and grabs a chicken. After he's done with one, he does another, and another...

    The farmer says, "Take it easy Brewster! You're going to hurt yourself!"

    Brewster just waves, grabs another chicken, and nails that one too. He proceeds to do all the chickens just as the other farmer had promised. When he finishes the chickens, he runs after the dog, and does him too.

    The farmer is starting to get a little worried.

    Brewster then does the cat, the horse, and all the other farm animals too. He then starts chasing after the farmer's wife!

    Some time passes and the farmer can't find Brewster anywhere. He looks everywhere and eventually finds the poor rooster on his back, motionless, with a flock of vultures circling overhead.

    The farmer cries out to himself, "Oh no! I told him to be careful! Now look what's happened."

    Brewster opens one eye and whispers, "Shhh! They're about to land."

    Nope. The Rooster is far enough away to be interesting. He's a frustrated bird. Don't get me started on "The Small Yapping Guard Dog."

    My son's family are in the final stage of buying a really neat home. It's a 4 bedroom and all that. It was built around 2006. It's owned by a corporation for their guys. It sat for a few months. No takers. The initial price was lowered. My son bit. With every used home there will be issues. A private seller may balk about fixing any thing. The Corp is going to fix all of it. All they want to do is sell the house.

    On the upside, you own a house.
    On the downside, you own a house.
    I swear I wish I lived in a truck, sometimes.
    Lefty's got me thinking.

    The upside is his wife is in the Coast Guard. The living allowance covers that in house they rent. The house mortgage is $200 less. Way back when, 1977?, it was easy to buy a house. I do have a story. I wish my son's family the best. To get all that needs to be fixed by the seller is Golden.

    My parents bought their house for $30k in '74. It's around $650k, now. Maybe more.
    They almost bought a house on the cliffs in Shell Beach, about 20min away, but it's colder on the water, and my moms from MN and was done with the cold. That house was about $35k at the time.
    $1m+, now.
    My dad drove a concrete truck and my mom was a school teacher, when she wasn't raising us.
    They managed to pay off two houses, keeping one as a rental.
    It's all I can do to keep my bills to a low roar, and I make twice what they made together.
    If a kid can get into a house these days, it's almost a miracle.
    VA loans are about the only way, for many people.

    Another thread merge due to "start in the middle" cryptic nonsense absurdity.
