The first time I heard it was on a Three Stooges film.  The Car Talk guys on NPR use it every Saturday too.

I that don't work check with these guys

The Legal Firm of Dewey, Cheatem, and Howe, LLC

They were in the third locker I bought and I still use them.  Just not at a uhaul facility.  I guess whoever rented them lost a deposit.  So they have been paid for twice since I bought the locker they were in.  No plans to sell them they are to handy to have around.  May remove stickers and repaint them someday.

What about a hand-truck from uhaul?  It had been painted, but the orange is showing.

Sold the Sprinter ;D Bought a Quad Cab pickup so I can take the grandsons with me now. Still check out what is going on here and may start doing a little picking when the weather cools off.

I am getting a divorce and the wife has the house with my storage/work shop.  That and I don't really want to spend the time needed to do this.  Much rather spend time playing with grandsons than sorting and selling.  I was successful, but really didn't need the money as I am retired with a good income.  I was interested before the shows made this business like it is now and may be back who knows since I'm only 57. Best of luck to everyone.

2005 Dodge Sprinter 3500 AT, PS, PB, AC, CC, Radio, Ricon lift, Curt Class 3/4 hitch, dual sliding doors with glass. 134,xxx miles since I am still driving it. I am staying at Lake Blackshear in South Central GA, but drive to Roswell north of Atlanta on most weekends to visit my sister. Call me at 229-388-2090 to arrange a time to look. I have a clear title to the van.  Decided to get out of locker business so don't need this van any longer.

In one of my front pockets, my pistol is in the other one.

Had a guy drive from somewhere in Illinois to my home in Tifton, GA to buy a tiller.  Bought some other items while he was here ;D  Said he had a friend about 100 miles from my house he was going to visit while in the area.  Guess his round trip was in the 1500 - 2000 mile range.

Just used a $25 dollar Barnes & Noble one to help pay for Daughter-in-law's college book.  It was the best so far.

Backyard NO ;)  Workshop/storage building and open shelter almost :-\

I give them the address of the local FBI office and the name of the Special Agent in Charge for the state to be on the check :D  Why go to the trouble of reporting them let them do it :P  Got the idea from someone on this forum several months ago ;D

I pick up things on the road too.  Returned a tonneu cover to a dealer that blew off a customer's truck on their rollback got a free service on my van ;)  Found by the road for trash pick up a vacuum cleaned the filters sold it to my neighbor for $20 ;D  I bought a house from a lady and was hauling off a bag of trash for her.  Heard some metal rattling and thought recycle, but found it was a Dietz Monark lantern made between 1915-1936 :-\  It is in my booth at Southern Pickers for $49.95 as of today.  Also found an old STOP sign at that house behind the shrubs cleaned it and it is in my booth at Southern Pickers for $49.95 as of today too :D  Never be ashamed to make a little profit!

Storage Facilities / Re: Are sealed bid auctions common in your area?
« on: December 06, 2012, 10:23:43 PM »
There is one facility in Moultrie, GA that I go to does sealed bids.  I have gotten 2 units and make ok on both.  The manager told me the owner has another facility in Albany, GA and they do seal bids too.  i don't like sealed bids, but the facility is very well maintained and most units I see have better than average contents.
