This and that
Autos of beauty
For today (Monday):
I tried today to make some sense out of the toilet paper thing. The only thing I could find was an explanation from a professor that blamed it on the ‘human brain’. He seems to think it came from one well meaning leader who suggested everyone stock up at least two weeks of food, meds and toiletries for the very possibility of Quarantines.
People who saw someone buying a lot of toilet paper, their brain went into high gear when told they might need it. The brain then said you need it too. Etc. Probably true. But for it to go worldwide?? I guess it is amazing the power of FB and social media.
Today a friend’s car would not stop running when he turned the switch off. With help it was stopped. Then later the battery was dead and the car would not start and the car was in a level parking lot.
I just mentioned to my son J JR that it has been a long time since we would park a car on a hill or slight incline so we could push it off to start it. You always started the car rolling then in 2nd gear dropped the clutch and she fired up.
We all know they recap truck tires, we see the caps in the roads after they have come off. I leaned that truckers can run recap tires on the trailers but not on the Tractor tires. For safety reasons I am sure.
That is Monday’s wrap. LOL Thanks for stopping by, and thanks again for the comments. Myra mentioned that Brother Tom had jammed with the Del-Rays back in the day. That is Cool. (remember that word?)
