frugal or just plain cheap?

Postby John *.?-!.* cub owner » Wed Oct 14, 2015 9:44 pm

Looking at the group pictures from this years Cubarama (#14) I realized I had on the same hat I was wearing for the first one, 14 years ago. Is that being frugal, or just cheap?

John I think it means that you got a really good quality hard wearing hat, and that your head hasn't got any bigger :lol: :x :lol:

It just means your head didn't get any bigger :lol: Honestly, with all the knowledge you have gathered over the years, I don't know how you keep it under one hat anyway :)

I vote for both frugal and cheap.

I think I'm first or a close second.

I still have military clothing that I wore over 30 years ago in the army that I still wear.

I wear clothing on the acreage until the wife asks me to get rid of it. Then I wear it some more. When there is nothing left to cover my back side, I cut the clothing up into grease rags. And then use the grease soaked rags to start brush pile fires.

My sister says I'm so cheap that I still have the first nickle I ever earned. It's not true, I still have the first penny and a couple of sales tax tokens.
I have an excuse. CRS.

Cubarama Costume you say? That hat is not the costume one that comes to mind. Sometimes he's just a clown in a different hat. :D
