Waiting to fill a dump truck, I sat behind a guy doing paperwork at the only diesel fuel pump in town. It made me think of another of gramps' sayings."Use your head for something besides a hat rack"

I used to live in a town like that, only one diesel pump and the whole county didn't have a single traffic light or a Starbucks, that was over 100 miles away.  Alturas California.

There is still not a single traffic light in my "home" county.  The two largest employers are the hospital and jail, and that is no joke.  Zero industry.

Exactly how it was in Alturas (Modoc County).  I was a nurse at the hospital and that made me a county employee.

My grade four teacher told me I was going to be an astronaut when I grew up. She said all I do in school is take up space 😁

I just wish it wasn't 2000 miles away. And I'm sure that this is an old saying to.
