I don't have a secondary source of income. My dad, however, sells osage orange bow staves on ebay. He splits the logs by hand and ships the staves to people who use them to make wooden bows. And he does surprisingly well with it.

This question sponsored by the Kansas City region of the Internal Revenue Service.(I wonder how that kid in the story about gas prices affecting his lawn business feels about now, having reported his 20 lawns x $20 per week?)

R_I: "Like in that gay cowboy movie?"( I see my former "irreverence" has come back to haunt me. )No. We all saw what became of that "shepherd"-face painted, roaming the streets of Gotham, deranged... culminating in a drug overdose.I was seeking something somewhat more pastoral... on a hillside....

Is Kayla Edwards looking for a trophy husband?

Primary source: Trophy wife (had to balance it out) Secondary: Selling stolen boa-constrictors on the black market. Had to do something with my 3 years of Parseltongue study. Oh, and I'll be teaching in the fall. I guess they pay for that.

MD: "So I'm guessing you're in it for the fringe benefits?"Definitely for the fringe benefits... fringe thoughts, fringe insights... titles of fringe cowboy songs.... MD: "got wool?"... pulled neatly over my eyes, generally.

sunflower_sue: "I sell trophy husbands."Lease them. More long-term profit.
