    Default It pays to clean once in a while!!

    It pays to clean stuff up!! I had tossed packages in my room or combined them and forgot about them. Well.... cleaning up today I discovered a bunch of stuff I forgot about - and that I was getting ready to buy!!!

    2 thousand split rings
    4 thousand jig hooks (Like I need any more jig hooks LOL)
    1000 crane swivels
    1000 roller swivels
    900 treble hooks in 5 sizes

    Know the feeling myself. A trip to the goodie store without the cost, I’m good.
    Listen to your gut over all the other voices.

    Speakin' of cleaning stuff up: I have a buddy who has been what I would call a mega-farmer for most of his life growing tobacco, soybeans, corn, and such, managing 20 to 30,000 acres of farmland for many years. In the by and by, as life went along, he and his growing family finally realized the American Dream of building a brand new house and (of course) were peaking with excitement as they approached the actual moving-in phase. When it finally came time to move his furniture and possessions; while moving his bedroom chest of drawers (dresser)--low and behold, he found a five-year-old check for $28,500 from where he had previously sold a couple of tractor-trailer loads of tobacco in the State of Virginia. When he told me about his surprising windfall, he reasoned that the check had apparently fallen behind the dresser sometime after he unloaded his pockets as he always did and has done many times since the date of that check.

    The best part of all to him was: When he found the check... he promptly called the tobacco warehouse in Virginia (who issued the check) to see if was still good. He said they told him, "No problem... we've been wondering for many years why you hadn't cashed that check yet." Personally, I can't imagine having so much money that I wouldn't miss a chunk that size sometime w-a-a-a-y-y-y yonder earlier than five years later.

    My place is getting out of control too. I really need to get myself organized, but at this point I just don't have the space. I'm literally buying a bigger place just so I have more room for jig making.
