Harold Wannapus gets his first job at his Uncles Moonshine Factory Part 4 already?

Uncle Tootleminder took another drink of his powerful moonshine concoction from his overly large mason jar. It looked much like an egg pickling jar, and it was nearly half gone since Harold had just arrived, not too long ago.

He wiped his lips again "Your Dad and I took a one way taxi from Vegas to Maine. Then, when heading across the Penobscot river, your father opened the door as the taxi was driving at high speed. The taxi driver then screeched his brakes, and looked behind as your Dad jumped into the river to swim over to his secluded camp just a few thousand feet, but unreachable by road might I add, at 3 am in the morning! Well, the taxi driver held out his hand and said 'Guess you are going to pay the bill, son. Your friend seemed to be in need of a cold shower tonight' So I was left holding the several thousand dollar taxi bill for the cab!"

Harold then took a smaller mason jar full of moonshine, from a cardboard box that was lying on the ground. He gulped down a swig, and began to speak in a raspy voice "Wow. Dad sure saved allot of money that day, and he was always a great saver! Why, I remember how he one day how he got into a multi collision accident on the highway, caused by him dropping his freshly caught lobster from the bay onto his big toe. He was about to break open the shell to eat it live, and I was looking to suck the juices from it after he was done licking the shells. Well, he sure as heck put me in the seat at 14 years old, as he ran off into the bushes, as the police came... I paid dearly for insurance for our Mopad, up to this day!"

His Uncle sighed "I sure feel sorry for yeah, for having a cheap father like that. But, I am going to make you a made man here at my moonshine operation! You will start to work on a sliding scale. You will work at a negative 5 dollars an hour, until we pay off that few thousand dollars that your Daddy still owes me. Then, as we reach even keel, at a negative dollar an hour, slowly we will go over into the pluses for 3 months at a time at 2 dollars an hour, doubling each and every 3 months that goes by until you reach a whopping 6 dollars an hour!"

Harold drank another swig of the fine moonshine "Wow! Let me think about that. Who in the civilized world can get 50 % increases in pay every 3 months at the end of their contract! Geesh, this is surely a no brainer. I am completely in!"

My Dog has ate a Ferrero Rocher.

I had only went into a store to buy a few Ferrero Rocher packages of chocolates... Then, I went into the next store, not realizing that I left the small, 3 chocolates per package, delicious Rochers in my middle vehicle organizer. On the way back, I did not even notice.

I had got out of my vehicle, and only when I went to search for something on that side, it all came together. The package was torn, with only one individually wrapped Ferro Rocher out of its packaging. She had selected one, and even tore the golden foil paper from the once existing Rocher Chocolate.

I looked over at my Dog. This was a little too much for me to handle. I yelled "Pushkin! You ate one of my Ferrero Rocher!"  Is she the only dog in the world that probably ate a Ferrero Rocher.

Good point in standing, she actually thought the process through. She did not destroy the three chocolates in the package, all in one bite. She used her incisors, exactly as a surgeon would, to take apart the package from t…

Supermarket Guy 5 doing very well.

Have approximately 15 % written on Part 5 so far. It is going really well, but the first few chapters maybe more drama and less action. Relationships come into play as the main characters father and mother first meet. A meeting of the eccentrics, one extreme male dominate character with a woman who takes liberty to the maximum extreme, looking back to the 70's, where we remember the 8 track tape and black and white tv. When smoking was cool. A decade where the men held the dominance in affairs and in the household, and the women usually held the fort at the home. Things have changed for the better through the late 80s and 90s, as a womans place in the world has become much more equal these days, becoming bread winners and with the men sharing allot of the household chores these days in many families. Perhaps Margaret Thatcher paved the way for many women all over the world. Now even governments make sure there is a good number of women in their cabinet in order to govern, and man…
