Where’s Waldo?

Thursday, October 15th, 2015

Hi Friends,

I have a super power. Actually I have 2 super powers. I can’t fly or stop a speeding bullet. I don’t have Xray vision or a super sense of smell. None-the-less my super powers are very useful.

My first power is the uncanny ability to find Waldo. You know the game “Where’s Waldo”? Waldo is hidden in a very complex and detailed drawing. If you find Waldo you win the game. He is hard to spot because the drawing is so complex and detailed. Waldo hides in the bushes or blends into the scenery wearing camouflage.

This is how my power manifest itself. Joy Ann, the ever meticulous shopper, and I are at Bed Bath and Beyond. Joy Ann is looking for Burt’s Bees Hand Cream. Joy Ann will settle for only Burt’s Bees Hand Cream. She looks everywhere and can’t find it. She asks a clerk to help. The clerk can’t find it and says “we must be out.”

At precisely this moment I turn the corner on my way back from watching a fascinating  video over in kitchen tools and cookware. Did you know that cabbage is incredibly nutritious but very low in fat and calories and is an excellent source of vitamin K.

Unable to complete her shopping, Joy Ann is crestfallen and shares her despair with me. Looking over her shoulder I spot a lone jar of Burt’s Bees Hand Cream hidden among some bottles of off-brand shampoo. Presto, there’s Waldo!

Joy Ann tells me every woman would love to have me as a shopping companion. I’m filled with pride to be endowed with this gift. Where’s Waldo is a very productive special power.

My second super power will come as no surprise to many of you. I can discern radio problems and find solutions on a moments notice.

Some one calls and says, “We use radios at our school but there are dead spots. From the office we can’t reach the ball field.” Once someone called and said, “We do subway repairs and pour concrete in the tunnels and need to talk to the concrete truck operators up on street level. Can you help us?” As fast as you can say Burt’s Bees Hand Cream, I have a solution to their radio problem.

Give us a try. Let me put my special powers to work for you. Call 2 Way Radio Express today. Doing business with us is easy….and very powerful.

Best Wishes,

2 Way Radios Rule

Friday, October 2nd, 2015

Hi Friends,

Jay is my oldest son and the manager of our tech support department. Jay is gifted in everything mechanical whether it is building musical instruments or working on automobiles and motorcycles.

Jay is forever shopping on Craigslist for his next project.

Recently he traded some work for a chainsaw. He traded the chainsaw for a motor scooter. He traded the motor scooter for an old MG Midget that did not run. (In our politically correct world I doubt that we will ever have another automobile with the moniker “Midget”.)

He got the MG Midget running and promptly traded up for an MGB that needed a paint job. The MGB was painted and traded for a motorcycle which was traded for some parts that became a custom electric bass which was traded for another motorcycle that was traded for his latest acquisition a large body Mercedes Benz Diesel automobile.

I am Jay’s wheelman in many of these adventures. Typically we drive to some remote location (because Jay never trades for anything that is just down the street) to pick up his next “deal.” Then I follow him home while he drives a car with either no windshield, errant brakes or a hood that has to be wired to stay in the down position. Sometimes we do not learn that the vehicle is currently being used as a chicken coup or is totally infested with ants until we arrive to arrange transport. However, it seems all genuine bargains are picked up after dark and at least 30 miles from home.

These situations are perfect for using 2 way radios. Cell phones are terrible for this use. The great benefit to using 2 way radios is the immediacy and ease of use.

Think about Jay and me on a dark highway at night. Instead of  fumbling around with dialing cell phone numbers we just pushed the talk button and reported in. With 2 way radios there is no dialing, or redialing, or poor reception, or the battery dying, or even having to hold the cell phone to our ear in order to hear.

‘2 way radios rule’ in the right situation. Give us a call and we will help you determine if 2 way radios are right for you. Doing business with 2 Way Radio Express is easy.

Best Wishes,

Manzie R Lawfer
