“Look Down The Road, Son”

Good morning all. We hope today finds everyone in good health and spirits.

You know, my Dad, who has been pretty successful in his own right, used to tell me… “Look down the road, son.”

His meaning was pretty simple and actually very good advice.

His meaning behind that statement is that, you never start out on top. This whether you are employed by someone else, or even workin for yourself.

Success comes from a great work ethic, the desire to better yourself and your family, the ability to cope through not just the good times, but the bad too.

It means you have to start at the bottom somewhere. Then through pure determination to see something through, you eventually start climbin the ladder to achieve…success.

So you see, his statement means to not let what happens today hinder your drive to, “look down the road

You have to stay focused, believe in your own ability, and maybe most importantly…NEVER…take no, or, you can’t do it, as an alternative.

Movin South, Lucky’s Dern Grits, Corned Beef Hash, and Some Kinda Rice Thing

Mornin guys. We hope all are well today!

Most know fore Lucky and I got married, shoot, datin for that matter…she made me WORK for it. Again, we’d both lost our spouses, but we’d all been good, good friends years back.

Lookin back now, that was my only in. If I hadn’t known that heifer prior, I doubt she’d have even givin me the time a day. She wanted another man in her life bout like I wanted to go see the dentist as a child.

But, eventually I wore her down, and most times now we wonder what we’d ever do without each other.

The other times we just wonder what WE ARE gonna do with each other??

“To Protect Themselves Against Tyranny in Government”

Good morning guys…I hope this finds all well.

“Democracy will cease to exist when you take away from those who are willing to work and give to those who would not. ”

“My reading from history convinces me that most bad government results from too much government.”

“The strongest reason for the people to retain and keep the right to bear arms is, to protect themselves against tyranny in government.”

All three quotations were written by Thomas Jefferson, long before our present government existed.

That man had foresight, did he not?

These three quotes were sent to me from a very good friend of mine, and one whose writings have been seen on our website from time to time.

I call him AP, and this man is a true patriot in every sense of the word.

Aging and Love Thy Neighbor

Mornin guys! Hope this finds all in good spirits and health.

Ya know, I used to have passin thoughts back in the day. Passin cause when in my twenties there wasn’t much grass growin under my feet and I just didn’t have time to sit and ponder much.

But at times I’d wonder what hittin 30 must be like?

Then 40?

Suddenly it was 50!

Now my next milestone will be 60, and dang if there ain’t some grass BEGINNING to grow under my feet some???

Lost Values…Integrity, Honor, Morals?

Good morning guys.

You know, first off I’d like to say thank you to all our veterans and our active duty military. Using myself as an example, I don’t thank these young men and women nearly enough so I felt this the appropriate way to start today’s post off.

Basically as a whole, these young men and women exemplify today…integrity, honor and morals.

Because of them, the liberals of today and yesterday have had the freedom to express their views…good or bad.

Seems pretty safe to say that these very same liberals sure wouldn’t be voicing such views openly in say, Cuba, the former Soviet Union, China, Cambodia, and countless other countries.

Why?

Getting their necks stretched comes to mind.

Happy New Years and Runnin Off at the Mouth Some

Mornin guys! Here’s hopin this finds all in good health and spirits, and may 2014 be the best year ya’ll have seen to date.

2014??

Can you believe it? Shoot, seems like only a couple months back I was still datin my checks as I’d write em out 2012 although 2013 had already rolled in??

Best piece of advice I can give all you younger guys and gals out there is simply…don’t get old!

I’d like to start out this morning with a few words from the late Jerry Clower.

They aren’t just as he told it, but pretty close.

He was speakin on women’s lib, and the woman in charge of this movement comin to see his wife, Mrs. Clower.

She pulled up in their drive unannounced, and proceeded to ring the doorbell. After bein let in she was brought to where Jerry was watchin TV, with evidently Mrs. Clowwer bein tied up at the moment.

She burst in to where Jerry was sittin and declared, “Well Mr. Clower…I’m here…to see your wife.”

For Unto You is Born:

Merry Christmas guys! We hope this finds all in good spirits and health.

“And there were in the same country shepherds abiding in the field, keeping watch over their flock by night.

And, lo, the angel of the Lord came upon them, and the glory of the Lord shone round about them: and they were sore afraid.

And the angel said unto them, Fear not: for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people.

For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord.” - Luke 2:8-11

Well…how do ya follow that?

I can’t for sure, who can, but I will attempt to give a few thoughts on Christmas, and what it means to me.

We as a Nation Have Lost Our Minds:

Mornin guys…how are ya? We hope this finds all well. We’re doin fine, just been very, very busy.

Not a lot of time this morning, but I just had to vent a little.

Seems our elected elite have found it in the goodness of their hearts to…

Vote on this week, a bill to…

CUT OUR RETIRED MILITARY PENSIONS???

Do you believe this?

Can you believe this?

Alright…now my rant.

Yet another example of our elected elite doin whatever, and whenever they want. More proof that we no longer have a say in our election process as we are spoon fed the candidates by the powers that be.

A Day of Thanks:

Good morning guys. A beautiful day here in sunny Central Florida, although we’ve had a 34 degree temperature change since yesterday…38 degrees here this morning.

Yeah, I know…you Yankees (is usin the term “Yankee, politically correct??)” must think I’m a “titty-baby” whinin about it bein 38 degrees here when you guys at times consider 38…a warmin trend! Lol.

Hey…Happy Thanksgiving guys!

We here on our place wish you the very best, and ya’ll see many more in the comin years!

God Bless!

As Thanksgivin bein a day to contemplate all of our blessins, let me share a few of my thoughts on this topic.

First off, I’d like to thank our president for the loss of millions of health care coverages across this great land of ours, with myself bein included in those numbers.

I heard of your statement proclaimin to be sooo very sorry for any hardships you may have caused to we, the American taxpaying citizen by mispeakin, but down here where I’m from, we call it by a different definition altogether.

We call it simply…

LYIN!
