We executed another edition of the Erwin Pawn Trade-A-Thon Saturday and passed out a tip for being a real man.

It’s the show where you can buy, sell, and trade.  Many people take advantage of the service while much many more simply listen.  We appreciate your participation during the show.


We ask all our callers a poll question before they give their items.  I got a smart phone over last week and even though we had asked this questions around two years ago I thought I’d as again. Results from two years ago are in parenthesis.

Do you have a smart phone?

Yes 20 (11)

No 15 (23)

It appears smart phones have gotten popular amongst Trade-A-Thon listeners.


Along with the special regular rules of the program I always bring you a special rule #6.  This week it was inspired by something that happened to me at the Outdoor Expo, a little over a week ago.

We were tearing down out booth and someone needed a knife to cut down some banners.  There were three guys, including myself.  We were asked if any of us had a knife.  Only one our of three guys were carrying a knife, and that was me packing a blade.

It got me to thinking about what it takes to be a man and what might tip-off the world that you aren’t such a big man after all.

RULE #6 A Texas man is not a real man if he doesn’t carry a knife.

I’m not talking a Bowie or Rambo knife.  Just a simple little pocket knife for those impromptu cutting jobs.  You’ll be glad you did.

See you next Saturday for another Erwin Pawn Trade-A-Thon!
