“Time and Stuff,” that’s what life is about! If you have the time you go get some stuff. Or, like most, you’ll make the time to go get the stuff. Sometimes we get stuff that doesn’t fit and work, and then we have to find or make the time to go back and return the wrong stuff and hope we get the right stuff. (KEEP THE RECEIPT)

This “Time and Stuff” takes money. And we so often find ourselves short of time and money for the stuff we want or need to buy. Too, they don’t make stuff to last like they used to. So, every several years, you’re re-buying the stuff that we bought and just paid off several months ago. There is no such thing as a “LIFE TIME GUARANTEE!” So, if someone is trying to sell you something with a so called, “Life Time Guarantee,” don’t believe it. There’s always a catch to that line!

Time can really cost a fellow. Like driving too fast and trying to get there and find the cop has you in his sights. Now, the faster you drive the more gas it takes and gasoline is some high priced stuff. Then, some of the stuff you buy may not cost that much to buy, but to keep it up gets very expensive.

Time doesn’t draw interest, so you really can’t save time. You can squander it and lose it or make it, but you can’t keep it. Stuff is good for only so long and then it’s got to be replaced-repaired or just trashed. Money talks, yep and all mine says is “GOOD BYE SUCKER!”

Time and Stuff is like a dog chasing it’s tail! It’s never going to get caught! But, we’re bound and determined to make the time and get the right stuff and pay for that stuff before the warranty goes out! And as much as I want to rid myself of all that unneed STUFF in my life, I just don’t have the Time to do it!

P.S. Did someone say, “Catch 22?” Well, that’s life!
