The squeaky wheel does not always get the oil

The old saying that the Squeaky Wheel always gets the oil is not altogether true, while it better get some oil or else.

However, sometimes the Squeaky Wheel does get the grease which is always better!

The idiom, with its allusion to a wagon wheel that needs oiling, is ascribed to American humorist Josh Billings (1818-1885) in a poem, “The Kicker”: “I hate to be a kicker [complainer], I always long for peace, But the wheel that does the squeaking Is the one that gets the grease.”

Yesterday was a long ‘how-be-it’, good day with the exception although necessary booster shot for Breanna and the reason for the trip.



While closing out the day we agreed to stop at the post office.

To our surprise, our dear friend Sandy, on her next to the last day before retirement was watching over the people responsible for the blunder of route 42. She had them re-painting the parking lot at the post office

with a promise to finely give us our own turn lane safely into the post office.



I took these pictures today while bidding Sandy happy retirement.


Remember the past postings?
