Another miserably cold day - 28 degrees and spitting snow but hubby and I went for 2 long walks anyway. We are insane!! LOL. Hubby told me that if you mouth breath your nose won't run. LOL. We saw Hondo running around. He is so cute.
Hubby worked on my washer today. Hasn't found what is wrong yet.
As everyone is aware I live in a very rural area. We are always hoping that someone will take pity on our poor, ignorant, redneck butts and put something nice here like a Target or Red Lobster or Sam's or practically anything. We can't afford to be picky. Just give us something new. It seldom ever happens though and when we do get something it's usually something I care nothing about.
The closest village to me is Texico and as I explained it's a hole in the wall. There is nuthin in Texico. The next closest village is Dix and it is 5.5 miles away. Dix is a thriving metropolis of 495 people. LOL. You know the kind of town - it has a tiny grade school, a tiny storage locker building, a tiny grain elevator, a tiny church, a tiny bank, a tiny park, a tiny lumber yard, a tiny grocery, a tiny convenience store, a tiny post office, a tiny motel, a tiny restaurant, a tiny funeral home, a tiny community center and a few odd business like a concrete yard ornament business, a snack distributor, an antique store, and a swimming pool manufacturer. I don't know a single sole in the entire area who owns an in-ground swimming pool.
Dix put in a senior citizen complex many years ago and promised the seniors who were willing to move 12 miles from the nearest mall and grocery that they would put in a little mini mall but it never happened. In fact, new businesses seldom come to Dix. Recently though Dix got a brand new business............................... a Caterpillar store. Just what we need - more slow moving vehicles on the roads. Tractors driving 15 miles for a tune up.
Much to our surprise Dix got another new business recently.............................. a "topless club". LOL. They are advertising for girls over 18 years old. The average age of people in this community is 49.7 years. Although a few of our adventurous grannies might be willing to go topless I dare say most men around here would pay them not to. I'm not sure where the topless staff and seedy clientele will come from.They advertise that they want to be the entertainment for bachelor parties. Maybe it's just me but I would never marry a man who would be interested in this kind of entertainment. It would be a deal breaker. The sheriff says they usually these places are scams and they come in waiting for the tiny village board and citizens to break some law attempting to get rid of them so they can sue them. The sheriff says nothing much can be done about it. What the new ho club has accomplished is it has gotten a lot of blue-haired polyester pant-suited old ladies off of their porch rockers and they are picketing outside of the new t/a bar. LOL.
