Call first to renew license

If you are planning to renew your driver’s license in Marion at the courthouse, call before you go since they only now do that Tuesday through Friday.

I was planning to go on a Monday recently, which would have been a wasted trip. I think the card asks you to call because the days they do it may change from time to time. Not sure about that, though.

OK, so now I have purchased three different brands of suspenders, and so far I like the cheapest ones I have in my selection.

The price range is about $7 to $12. The cheapest ones came from Tractor Supply in McPherson, which have the best fasteners and are the most heavy duty. I should have known that with a brand name like Schmidt they would be better and stronger.

So, Nancy bought a couple of T-shirts at Dollar General that are bigger than my other T-shirts; they’re easier to slip over my neck brace and they also have a pocket where I can keep my spare eyeglasses.

The material is quite thin in the shirts, so the fasteners chopped a hole in them when they caught both my jeans and the shirt when put on.

This has been way more difficult than I thought it would be. I didn’t know there were so many different ways to hook them up.

The Ranneys were in town over the New Year holiday and Dave brought me another joke book.

It is full of quotes by well-known people, except I haven’t heard of many.

“When I was a boy I laid in my twin bed wondering where my brother was” —Mitch Hedberg.

I just watched a video of Mitch on Youtube.com and it was the same kind of humor as in the joke book.

In the video he states that an escalator is never out of order because it just becomes stairs when it isn’t working.

I really don’t believe the Chiefs will make it to the big game with the present people in place. When one of the stars goes down, like Kelce did, they don’t have an answer. I also think it will take someone like Mahomes at the helm.

I have never felt so helpless in my whole life like I have been since Dec. 2.

When you aren’t supposed to bend over and pick up anything, raise your arms above your shoulders, or lift anything over 8 pounds, there’s not much one can do.

This old boy thought his wife couldn’t hear very well and was concerned about it. So he asked the doctor what he should do.

The doc said to ask what’s for dinner from 15, 10 and 5 feet behind her and right behind her and see what the result is.

So the guy does this one day, and when he asked standing right behind her, she spins around and yells, “For the fourth time, we’re having chicken.”
