Hey guys! What’s up? I’d like for this post to find everyone doing well, and in good spirits. Also be sure to keep them “lever pullin, or writin hands” in tip top shape! We have a very crucial election taking place in only a couple months.
Doesn’t seem possible does it? Two months away from the election, BUT, only 3 months away until Christmas. Sorry…ain’t no Happy Holidays bein wished round here! We do the MERRY CHRISTMAS THING!!
Before I get started this morning, let’s check out a few tongue in cheeks. Hopefully, by the time you get the jokes down ya, I’ll know what I was gonna get started postin on?? LOL!
Our good friend Gary, from LA, or “Lower Alabama,” sent us a few bout ole “Slick Willie.” I thought they were all pretty funny so let’s see.
Manufacturers announced today that they will be stocking America ‘s shelves this week with “Clinton Soup,” in honor of one of the nations’ distinguished men… It consists primarily of a weenie in hot water.
Chrysler Corporation is adding a new car to its line to honor Bill Clinton…The Dodge Drafter will be built in Canada .
When asked what he thought about foreign affairs, Clinton replied…”I don’t know, I never had one.”
The Clinton revised judicial oath:…”I solemnly swear to tell the truth as I know it, the whole truth as I believe it to be, and nothing but what I think you need to know.”
Seems to me most of our politicians look at this oath similarly, huh?
I believe on many, many occasions we elect, and send officials to Washington that really ARE good people. Men AND women. The problem becomes a problem, ONCE, they get to DC. Seems to me a vast minority leave, IF they EVER leave, with many, IF any, morals or virtues among them.
Clinton will be recorded in history as the only President to do…Hanky Panky between the Bushes.”
Not bad, huh?
We’ll share one more this morning. This comes from another good friend, Diane…
A Harley biker is riding by the zoo in Washington, DC when he sees a little girl leaning into the lion’s cage. Suddenly, the lion grabs her by the collar of her jacket and tries to pull her inside to slaughter her, under the eyes of her screaming parents.
The biker jumps off his Harley, runs to the cage and hits the lion square on the nose with a powerful punch.
Whimpering from the pain the lion jumps back letting go of the girl, and the biker brings her to her terrified parents, who thank him endlessly. A reporter has watched the whole event.
The reporter addressing the Harley rider says, ‘Sir, this was the most gallant and brave thing I’ve seen a man do in my whole life.’
The Harley rider replies, ‘Why, it was nothing, really, the lion was behind bars. I just saw this little kid in danger and acted as I felt right.’
The reporter says, ‘Well, I’ll make sure this won’t go unnoticed. I’m a journalist, you know, and tomorrow’s paper will have this story on the front page… So, what do you do for a living and what political affiliation do you have?’
The biker replies, ‘I’m a U.S. Marine and a Republican’
The journalist leaves.
The following morning the biker buys the paper to see if it indeed brings news of his actions, and reads, on the front page:
U.S. MARINE ASSAULTS AFRICAN IMMIGRANT AND STEALS HIS LUNCH… and THAT pretty much sums up the media’s approach to the news these days…
Our garden is doing well in the greenhouse, but outside the greenhouse they’ve been catchin it. You know I had herbicide “drift” on the okra, killed quite a bit actually. I know Deb would have been on my case BAD over that. LOL!
For better than the last week we’ve been getting some good rain. I can’t believe I’m sayin this after how dry we’d been, but man, a break would be nice. The soil is beginning to get pretty saturated, and honestly we need a few days of…dryin out!
Once it does, I need to take a hoe and bust the middles just to stir the soil up some and help it to dry out a little.
They were talking, last I heard, about a 60% chance tomorrow, 50% Wed., and then droppin to 40%. All good chances for showers. I’ll say this though, the pond has come up a lot. It’s starting to look like a good pond again.
I set out about 50 onion sets today and have about another 30 to set out. I’ll probably do that tomorrow. Most are He Shi Ko, but there’s a few Crimson Forest as well. I like them both, but favor the He Shi Ko’s if given the option.
I strung the two rows of tomatoes in the greenhouse today, plus fertilized everything in the garden areas. After applying fertilize, I sprayed all the plants with Liquid Seven for bug control, got a shower then ran up town and got a haircut. Told em I wanted it short enough that when I got home, I wanted the dogs to bite me!
It’ll be a while for I need another one! Twelve bucks for a regular haircut? At that price I’m thinkin about letting it go to my shoulders for I get another one! LOL!
I’ll try and get a video or a couple pictures of the garden in the next day or so. Also I want to do a video for a reader who requested an update on the butter Deb and I canned a year ago. We’d have done it sooner but I couldn’t find a volunteer to put it in their mouth! LOL!
No, I just haven’t had anyone to help me to video it. I’m not smart enough to do it by myself, and just afraid the camera would be anywhere but where I needed it.
I read a quote the other day from Billy Graham. Actually, I bought a book of his quotes. This quote now is in regards to our youth. Once you read it, stop and ponder what its message is.
“In earlier periods of history, adolescence was virtually unknown… Today, the span between childhood and adulthood may extend over 10 years.
Deferred adulthood is synonymous with deferred responsibility.
I couldn’t agree more, and through this our Country’s future looks cloudy, I hate to say. Much of the reasoning for this statement is TOO much governmental control over our family’s lives today.
Punish your child…might see the jailhouse. (abuse)
Work your child…might see the jailhouse. (abuse again)
Even throughout school, our children are taught in many cases that wrong…is right. They’re taught agendas, and many times the remarks used by their “teachers” are anti-American, at least by majority standards.
Look at the teacher strikes in Chicago. How many hundreds of thousands of kids WERE or still are out of school? I don’t even know if it’s ended” Just ticks me off though! I literally can’t stand to read about it.
Does this have ANYTHING TO DO WITH THE CHILDREN? Not in the least! The union maybe? Ya reckon?
In our regard, Deb and I worked, and worked hard as youth. Our children did the same. Each of us have turned out pretty decently, and all know the value of the dollar, and the work ethic needed to “get ahead” in this world we live in.
Through these things, we learned that respect, honesty, your word being your bond or your integrity, or simply put…nobody owes you NOTHIN! You EARN it.
We still had times to enjoy ourselves, BUT, work came first…then enjoyment.
Morals, standards, virtues, etc. All going out the window.
Is it surprising? Of course not.
When you have the leaders of the free world making a mockery of the Country, its Laws, its Constitution, it’s Faith in God, literally just about everything we WERE founded upon…when it reaches this point, there just isn’t too much that DOES surprise me anymore!
The saddest part? They’ve made a mockery of us too. The CITIZENS of this Country…you and I.
Until we finally get enough and start DEMANDING accountability, we can forget it ever getting any better. It’s past that. They’ve become too arrogant.
Vote wisely in November friends!
On that note let’s take a look at one other joke. This one from my Aunt Ann…
The Captain suggested perhaps it would help if the sailors would change underwear occasionally.
The first mate responded, “Aye, aye sir, I’ll see to it immediately!”
The first mate went straight to the sailors berth deck and announced, “The Captain thinks you guys smell and want you to change your underwear.
He continued, “Pittman, you change with Jones, McCarthy, you change with Witkowski, and Brown, you change with Schultz.”
THE MORAL OF THE STORY:
Someone may come along and promise “Change”,
but don’t count on things smelling any better.
You guys have a great day, and God Bless you and yours! Be sure to keep a smile on your face, and one in your heart!
