We Have Too Many Ladders

As I sat in garage pondering life and other stuff, I noticed that we have too many ladders.

We once had four. Two small ones and two large ones. I gave away one of the small ones which leaves us with three, but that’s still too many.

We also have a couple small ladder-type things in the house. That probably means we have five ladders, but I’m only talking about the ladders in the garage.

How many ladders do we actually need? I’m thinking one big one and one small one would be enough. But then there’s that thing where I would have to take one of the large ladders and figure out what to do with it.

I wrote a poem about it:

Ladders, ladders
We have too many
What to do
With all those ladders

It’ll do. Guess we might have too many forks and spoons, but just the right amount of knives. You can never have enough knives. That’s what my parents taught me during the great impression all those many years ago.

If you never lived through the great impression, you haven’t lived! Those were the times, yes indeedy.

I also think we have to much tape.

The idea of building a website with Bob came from Stephen in the days of message boards and chat rooms. We settled on the name TheWeirdcrap.com and the rest is history. Retired since he hit the ripe age of 25, he spends most his time doing odd-jobs around the house and digging thru trash bins for "stuff that's still good." Stephen has contributed several short stories and hosted the "Lunatic Ravings" column since the beginning (1999). The idea of writing weekly columns came from Stephen before blogs or blog sites ever existed. So, I guess that makes him THE FIRST BLOGGER IN THE WORLD!!!
