We're due for a road trip but couldn't go Saturday.  We had buyers and sellers to connect.

When you wade into the reselling waters, things can get deep fairly quickly.  It's always important to use the proper tools.  Listings in American Classifieds and on Facebook are highly recommended.  When you need immediate action, get The Erwin Pawn Trade-A-Thon out of your marketing toolbox.

We do it every Saturday from 9-Noon.  It's not a difficult concept to understand or an arduous program to host.  You call me.  I put you on the air.  You tell everyone what you have for sale.  Before saying goodbye we'll need your contact information.  Then, if everything is working as it should, you'll be getting calls before I cut you off the air.


We ask all our callers a poll question before they give their listing.  It helps give us something conversational to banter about, provides a small theme for the show, and additionally we get to know you better.

The Sand Drags we're this last weekend at the Canadian River.  It's mud and river toys, doused in beer and bbq.

A little closer to home at Lake Meredith, they have been enduring a rash of vandalism.  So far no suspects.

It got us thinking about the lake and how it's been nearly two decades since I've been near any lake, much less the ones we call ours.  It also made me wonder how many of you were water enthusiasts.

When was the last time you went to Lake Meredith or the Canadian River?

Never: 4

After that we got answers ranging from last Wednesday to two years to fifteen to forty.


Along with the regular rules of conduct on the program that I recite at the beginning of each hour, I always bring you a special Rule #6.  It changes every week.  Sometimes topical, a quote, or a disclaimer, this week the rule was inspired by something a little offending that happened to me on Wednesday.

I'm almost 47.  Wednesday evening I was hanging out with one of my closer friends.  He's in his early 30's.  He's a genetic lottery winner.  Not a lick of fat, muscularly cut, and he's not unattractive.  He was complaining about his back hurting from all the working out he's been doing.  I asked him why he puts himself through it when he obviously doesn't need to.  He said he "doesn't want to look like hell when he's 40".  While I pondered that there was a short silence.  Then he added,

"No offense, bro."

Rule #6: You don't want to look like hell when you're 40.

See you this Saturday for another Erwin Pawn Trade-A-Thon.  Let's both be thankful it's on the radio and not on television.  My visually challenged 40+ body would frighten people.
