There is a contest going on now on the ham airwaves and I am not really a part of it. The object of the game is to make as many contacts as you can over the weekend.
When you make a contact you give them the number of contacts you have made over this weekend and they give you theirs.
Yesterday I made a contact that I have been needing for my project and the guy gave me a number like 2006. I gave him 003.
"Three? Only three?"he asked, somewhat dumbfounded.
"I am an old man and don't get around so good no more. Three is a mistake. You are number four. I gave you my social security number by mistake."
While I was logging the contact the next guy that he QSO'd was laughing outright. He knew I was just picking a few plums. "I guess that old fella told you," he said.
Some people take things way too seriously.
The weather just won't let up as I woke up to a dusting of snow.
Just yesterday Neighbor Bob and I were commenting on how the daffodils are starting and this morning, POW! More snow.
Sometimes a person wakes up and feels like General Custer looking out on the field and seeing yet MORE Indians.
