Another Four AM

Woke up at four AM.  I was delighted...my invention was awarded a patent.  Then I realized that a patent was worthless.  I had to collect the royalties that were due. 

I am like the guy who invented the time delay windshieild wiper... great idea.. and every car used the idea..but nobody paid him.  He spent the rest of his life trying to  collect royalties.  Critics and friends alike told him to forget it...invent something else, but no.  He wanted crediti for his invention, and spent a forturne and a lifetime seeking it.

So I woke up frustrated.  My idea was granted a patent, but I was cold.  I still had to get up and turn on the furnace. So the great inventor rose.  Was I up in the middle of the night, or just up early? I guess that depends on whether I go back to bed or not.

I haven't decided.

Oh, go back to bed. Read if you need to, but there is no real reason to get up at 4:00 unless it is an emergency!! LOL

Hi Chuck your invention reminds me of some years back a coworker was on my job putting some kind of wire on a unifil winder.I ask him what he was putting on and he said it was something he invented he thought it would make the winder work better. I ask him what are they paying you for your invention? he replied, Not a D** thing. Have a nice day.

Sounds to me like your getting better..... back in the groove. find more blankets and you won't have to get up to turn up the heat.

Maybe you should have invented a device that would turn the furnace on automatically when it gets cold.

Funny nobody has thought of that: call it a thermoturniton. That would create another thingy to shut off the gas when things heat up: the thermoturnitoff.

You should make a fortune on those puppies!
