Love, love love Good Sam... Amazing organization. !!!!!

How wonderful

So much GOOD love at GOOD SAM.

That’s amazing!

And hey did I mention that thanks to you guys and that yours patience I can now cook, and I'm cooking A Feast for a king and a queen, but then again back to problem number one I'm invisible! Let me repeat that in case one of you people have a sister or something, LOL... Kinda.... I'm very marketable personal and I'm real good with flies yard work and I learn how to cook everything all in one pot no matter what it is and I can cook it at 350 anywhere between 1 and 2 3 hours Whatever Whenever I decide to eat it. Because I've learned it all goes down the same place and I really don't care what it taste like. That's also another Plus cuz I can eat bad cooking and smile, lol

PS: btw: hey with the exception of a few cookies that I sacrificed just to get the flies away I didn't need anything oh, wait I did have a bag of chips oh, and one hot dog. Oh well that's good then that's all the Fly Guy news anyway. Having said that the invisible Fly Guy Carly is fixing pesto chicken for his two young four-legged Sons and three big fat pork chops for myself, courtesy of my dear neighbors across the street yeah, you treat me with respect and don't require me to do menial tasks such as fly chasing., highest kind of funny though, one lady had a big old plate for and she ate as slow as my mom oh, and I was finding her with both hands, and it one point I started laughing because I wanted to say: hey lady if you don't start eating that quicker I'm going to eat it for you cuz I got all kinds of people here and meeting me to shoot the Flies off of them... Lol... Of course I didn't do it and as result I ended up serving her for napkins and water and things like that not yet. It just goes to show that a fly guys work is never done....

It was truly Beyond awesome!! I got to meet a lot of friends..... And actually work up a sweat, LOL. Selfishly I kind of like being the hair sweeper, but then again it's only a dream, you know God has funny sense of humor decided to make me invisible to women! Oh well I got two great dogs. I was telling the stylists the saying I made up a few years ago: " I got a dog will ask you longer than both a wife and a good Barber". Of course that's big talk I was only kidding. Grrrr. Satellite I think my clock has run out, and the sad reality of the next 50 years of my life it's almost frightening and it would be if I weren't so well.... NOT!!! I just thought I told him maybe it would sound good, lol

Hey Pam, Glenna, Vicky check my FB page somebody got on there and wrote something about the day that we had. You might want me to delete and I will if it's inappropriate I'll catch who ever did it I know that... :). I think something's kind of crazy on my Facebook page. I'm not sure if some of my friends got removed or not. I promise I had nothing to do with my change of profession. Even a fly guy needs friends even if he is in invisible fly guy... Lol
