And there, I got into yet another Keto diet conversation. I sat at the "bar" as I always do so I will get served faster and get out of there faster. This lady sitting next to me said something about her fat belly after I said I to the waitress I didn't want bread or hash browns. Well, it isn't I don't want them, I just can't have them. So I brought up low carb diet option to get rid of it. The dude sitting on the other side of me chimed right in, yea, the Keto diet!
This led to a 20 minute conversation with this lady about this diet. Very restrictive, very results driven. I can't do without my fruits! Well, you don't have to do without them forever, go on the diet for 3 months and you'll likely lose whatever you want! It's just interesting how much interest this diet sparks - it's really spreading like wildfire. America doesn't have to be fat and there is an alternative to make it happen without even having to exercise.
Anyway, I get to the plant and they don''t ... have...enough...product... to load the truck. "We're making more right now". I'm thinking, why did you call me in here? But it was only 30 minutes and the system automatically started pumping fluid into the trailer. I've come to understand that this plant is highly automated. There are valves that have to be opened by hand, but once that's done, the system takes over.
Anyway, got that done, back to the yard, out of there, to the Petco. I found out today that Walmart is getting rid of their fish sales nationwide - I called the store and they told me that and that they were sold out of their remaining fish. Well I'm not going to Petco anymore without calling them first. They sell out on Koi fish quickly after they get them in. It's a void in this region that needs to be fixed. People want Koi, Koi aren't available. I visited enough homes in the Phoenix area with a Koi tank set up to sell them on the side. A 500 gallon tank, order them 200 and more at a time, sell them at a profit. I don't have time for that if work is booming, but I know someone who has a lot of free time, needs money and could earn a nice tidy profit if the business took off.
I was going to go back into looking at pricing on large quantities of 2-3 inch Koi and 4-5 inch Koi, but I ended up over at the cop's house next door and visiting for several hours. He's a huge Trump fan and brought out his 45 acp that is a Trump model semi-auto pistol. Awesome piece of metal. High quality, only 1,500 of them have ever been made Can you get me one? It's a collector's item. Sure, I'll see if my supplier can get you one.Talked politics and the fact that some freaking thief siphoned gasoline out of my SUV tank overnight and left my tank empty today.
Anyway, the day is done. I figure to get up at 6:00 am and get out on the road in the truck by 7:30 am. 11 hours is about the time it takes to get there with fuel stop and mandatory 30 minute break. All the way through Louisiana and Mississippi, over to Birmingham and up to Decatur, Alabama.
Well, it's been a fun day actually. I got done so early I didn't expect to have that much time at home. And Taylor and James took off to Walmart so I spent a couple hours playing around with the boys. Besides going to work, I didn't actually "do" anything today lol.
Well, off to bed. I intend on getting up at 6:00 am and getting out of the yard no later than 7:30 am.
