At least you won the death match with Ragin Cajun.

kc,

Good point, I owned Ragin.

Sorry about the lack of posts. Busy non-trading day.

VO will come... eventually.

KC,

Excellent point!

I'm ready for Monday. Just been too busy here to write much.

A garage sale and a "petting zoo" party. If some time opens up for me, I have some decent stories to share.

For now I'll leave you with this,

Garage sale customer: "$1? I've give you 50 cents!"
Me: "Take it!"

Just out of curiosity-at a petting zoo party do you go to the animals or do they come to you?

If you lost -$1650 doesn't that actually mean that you ended the day up $1650?

TC,

They drive up in a regular looking "horse wagon." The humans then set up little enclosures in the backyard and then the animals are led from the wagon to the enclosures.

Once inside the enclosures, the animals deficate.

The kids swarm the enclosures, alternately offering "food" or screaming and running away.

Mdawsz,

Good catch. Double negative...

Clearly, you have too much time on your hands. Time to restart the blog.

Of course, I know you're just here trying to win back some of Ragin's glory. It is lost... gone forever. The glory has been spanked out of him.
