Friday, April 30, 2004

Hi gang, I have been bouncing around all over making comments. Then it downed on me I had not made a post!!! Because of the time this will be shorter than a bobcats tail.

Has every one seen Wanda’s new blog? I still can’t make a comment. She may have me filtered out! Cause I live in Elephant country.

WE have had a lot of talk on ageing this week so I will let you think on this one over the weekend!

A distraught senior citizen phoned her doctor's office. "Is it true,"
she wanted to know, "that the medication you prescribed has to be taken for
the rest of my life?"
"Yes, I'm afraid so," the doctor told her.
There was a moment of silence before the senior lady replied, "I'm
wondering, then, just how serious is my condition. This prescription is
marked 'NO REFILLS'."

Thought for the day, sunrise sunsat, I’m mighty glade we have met!

Hi gang, well I said I was not going to do it and…. You guessed it! I was on this monster just about all day again! Four times with Dell and three with MSN.

I am back to square one and my pop under Spam! The joy of it all. Reminds me of the middle ages. We are going to make you a christen if we have to kill you to do it.

I really liked MSN9 it had a lot of good features. Well it is hideous! It will not run on my system. So I am back to driving a 2001 model. Slow! How slow is it? Bush was through talking before my page changed!

Granpa said son, you can turn that thing on and have your chores done, before you get your blog up!

Thank every one for being so understanding and help full during this trying time. I have one bloger told me I should go back to playing golf, before I shut down the net!

I know there are a lot of food lovers out there and this is for you!

Astrology - Southern Style

OKRA (Dec 22 - Jan 20) Although you appear crude, you are actually very slick on the inside. Okras have tremendous influence. An older Okra can look back over his life and see the seeds of his influence everywhere. Stay away from Moon Pies.
CHITLIN (Jan 21 - Feb 19) Chitlins come from humble back-grounds. A chitlin, however, can make something of himself if he's motivated and has lots of seasoning. In dealing with Chitlins, be careful. They can erupt like Vesuvius. Chitlins are best with Catfish and Okra.
BOLL WEEVIL (Feb 20 - Mar 20) You have an overwhelming curiosity. You're unsatisfied with the surface of things, and you feel the need to bore deep into the interior of everything. Needless to say, you are very intense and driven as if you had some inner hunger. Nobody in their right mind is going to marry you, so don't worry about it.
MOON PIE (Mar 21 - Apr 20) You're the type that spends a lot of time on the front porch. It's a cinch to recognize the physical appearance of Moon Pies. Big and round are the key words here. This might be the year to think about aerobics. Or maybe not.
POSSUM (Apr 21 - May 21) When confronted with life's difficulties, possums have a marked tendency to withdraw and develop a don't-bother-me-about-it attitude. Sometimes you become so withdrawn, people actually think you're dead. This strategy is probably not really healthy, but seems to work for you. One day, however, it won't work and you may find your problems actually running you over.
CRAWFISH (May 22 - June 21) Crawfish is a water sign. If you work in an office, you're always hanging around the water cooler. Crawfish prefer the beach to the mountains, the pool to the golf course, the bathtub to the living room. You tend to be not particularly attractive physically, but you have a very, very good head.
COLLARDS (June 22 - July 23) Collards have a genius for communication. They love to get in the "melting pot" of life and share their essence with the essence of those around them. Collards make good social workers, psychologists, and baseball managers. As far as your personal life goes, if you are Collards, stay away from Moon Pies. It just won't work. Save yourself a lot of heartache.
CATFISH (July 24 - Aug 23) Catfish are traditionalists in matters of the heart, although one's whiskers may cause problems for loved ones. You catfish are never easy people to understand. You prefer the muddy bottoms to the clear surface of life. Above all else, Catfish should stay away from Moon Pies.
GRITS (Aug 24 - Sept 23) Your highest aim is to be with others like yourself. You like to huddle together with a big crowd of other Grits. You love to travel though, so maybe you should think about joining a club. Where do you like to go? Anywhere they have cheese or gravy or bacon or butter or eggs. If you can go somewhere where they have all these things, that serves you well.
BOILED PEANUTS (Sept 24 - Oct 23) You have a passionate desire to help your fellow man. Unfortunately, those who know you best - your friends and loved ones - may find that your personality is much too salty, and their criticism will probably affect you deeply because you are really much softer than you appear. You should go right ahead and marry anybody you want to because in a certain way, yours is a charmed life. On the road of life, you can be sure that people will lways pull over and stop for you.
BUTTER BEAN (Oct 24 - Nov 22) Always invite a Butter Bean because Butter Beans get along well with everybody. You, as a Butter Bean, should be proud. You've grown on the vine of life and you feel at home no matter what the setting. You can sit next to anybody. However, you, too, shouldn't have anything to do with Moon Pies.
ARMADILLO (Nov 23 - Dec 21) You have a tendency to develop a tough exterior, but you are actually quite gentle. A good evening for you? Old friends, a fire, some roots, fruit, worms and insects. You are a throwback. You're not concerned with todays fashions and trends. You're not concerned with anything about today. You're really almost prehistoric in your interests and behavior patterns. You probably want to marry another Armadillo, but Possum is another possibility.

Hi gang, I have spent another day fiddling with this computer! When you only nowhere the on/off button is, that makes things a little tuff.

I am seeing things I have never seen before. I keep getting error codes and the system shuts down. Granpa said it is because I am holding the Raines to tight. It doesn’t know to woo or back up. I told him there was a new sears catalog in the outhouse. Hadn’t seen him for a while.

Did you see in the news Barbara Strisand is going to sell her memorable! I can’t think of a thing I want, can you?

For all you coffee drinkers out there make sure you no who is suppose to make the brew!

Saturday, April 24, 2004

Hi gang, hope everyone had a good Sat. I did got out and cut grass. You should have seen me weaving all over! I have been working in paint on tonight post because I have not been able to get on line.
It only took me little over two hours to draw a donkey that looks like a dog! Just remember the picture is a donkey! LOL.

Tonight you gona here a story about a donkey!

The Donkey Story
An old man, a boy and a donkey were going to town.
The boy rode on the donkey and the old man walked.
As they went along they passed some people who
Remarked it was a shame the old man was walking
And the boy was riding. The man and boy thought
Maybe the critics were right, so they changed positions.
Later, they passed some people that remarked,
'What a shame, he makes that little boy walk.'
They then decided they both would walk.
Soon they passed some more people who thought
They were stupid to walk when they had a decent
Donkey to ride. So, they both rode the donkey.
Now they passed some people that shamed them
By saying how awful to put such a load on a poor
Donkey. The boy and man said they were probably
Right, so they decided to carry the donkey. As they
Crossed the bridge, they lost their grip on the animal
And it fell into the river and drowned.

The moral of the story?
If you try to please everybody,
You might as well kiss your ass good-bye

Hi gang, today just shot by! I worked out side most of the day. Came in about 3:00 took a shower and streaked out on the couch. Need I say more! My wife woke me up at 5:00pm. It seamed like I had just laid down.

Any way that's why I am running late tonight. I checked my comments today and replied to those I could . Those of you who don't talks every day, you need to put an e-mail address on you blog so we can yell at you!

We all have those we talk to every day and if you don't up date what do you do? I love all my contacts. They are all so with it! I can hardly wait to see what a new day will bring. Some how we become one on the net. Our feelings intermingle and we feel joy or pain and yes even sadness! I thank all of you for being part of my everyday life. Without you my life would be boring to say the least! Rambling down Boyd creek!

"Chicago Convention"

A man boarded an airplane and took his seat. As he settled in, he
glanced up and saw an unusually beautiful woman boarding the plane.

He soon realized she was heading straight toward his seat. Lo and
behold, she took the seat right beside his.

Eager to strike up a conversation, he blurted out, "Business trip or vacation?"

She turned, smiled, and said, "Business. The annual Sexual Education
Convention in Chicago."

He swallowed hard. Here was the most gorgeous woman he had ever seen,
sitting next to him, and she was going to a meeting for sex education!

Struggling to maintain his composure, he calmly asked, "What's your
business role at this convention?"

"Lecturer," she responded. "I use my experience to debunk some of the
popular myths about sexuality."

"Really," he said. "What myths are those?"

"Well," she explained. "One popular myth is that African American men
are the most well endowed, when in fact, it's the Native American Indian
who is most likely to possess that trait." "Another popular myth is that
French men are the best lovers, when actually it is the men of
Jewish descent.

We have, however, found that the best potential lover in all
categories is the Southern Redneck."

Suddenly, the woman became a little uncomfortable and blushed. "I'm
sorry", she said. "I shouldn't really be discussing this with you. I
don't even know your name."

"Tonto," the man said. "Tonto Goldstein, but my friends call me Bubba."

Hi gang! Friday is here, for many it means release from the norm. For the disabled or retired it is another day, not much different from the others. I have always envied those who loved their work so much they didn’t want to take the weekend off.

Second thought not taking the weekend off sucks! I mean loving their work. Are you like that or no someone like that?

I have always found something I had rather be doing than working. The companies I have worked for never seamed to care about you, as long as there was a profit. Don’t rock the boat! Work over on your on time, make things easer, cheaper, faster, and don’t worry about the stress or the guy/girl stabbing you in the back.

Your reward, they haired someone younger pay him/her more to do half of what you do. This by the way is called teamwork! You are supposed to train them to take your job! Oh and by the way you twenty years of experience should be taught in a week!

Ah… cooperate America or has this become world standard? I may sound angry but I am only annoyed at what people will do to each other. The ethics come from the top down, you are not told out right to cut someone’s throat but you better understand what they mean or it will be your throat.

Have you ever wondered how some people can sleep? Some of the things that are done are so cold blooded! Just today I had to get a med. filled at the Vet. For my wife’s dog. Our old Vet. Sold out and moved to another county. I ask the bookkeeper if she had heard from him and she went sh….. Are you kidding!

I asked what she meant. She said I worked for him for sixteen years and had no idea what was going on. His last day he told me he sold out and the new Vet. Would be here Monday. Out the door he went! I was floored! I had to wait until Monday to find out who's the new Vet, and if I had a job or not! Her last comment was I hate people like that!

Well enough of Cooperate America.

Hi gang, I hope your Thursday has gone well for you. I am still all up tight with pain pills. Hopefully tomorrow will be a better day. I have puttered around a little today, and found some are having O/S problems e-mail and soft ware. Something about e6 I have no idea other than it is some e-mail soft ware.

I ran across one sight that said blogroll, had been hacked and could cause problems. I have Norton and so far it has been good. Why in the world someone would spend so much time trying to hurt other people is beyond me. Cyber Terrier Attack! We get it coming and going. Just to say look what I did! Woopee!

I have had a lot of trouble singing in on MSN. I hate dial-up but until something else is offered I am stuck. Also my O/S will freeze up a lot or I will get bumped of line.

A snail grew tired of his reputation for being slow. He decided to get
some fast wheels--a Nissan 350Z. But he insisted that it be changed to
a 350S. "S stands for snail," he said. "I want everybody who sees me
roaring past to know who's driving." The dealer complied. Pretty soon,
the snail was roaring down the highway. And when people saw him
zooming by, they'd say, "Wow! Look at that S-car go!"

Hi gang, well as you have guessed by now I have been out of business! I started to post Sat. evening before I went to church and Bloger would not publish my post. So I went to church and came back and the phone line was out. We had a thunder storm go through, and have been without a phone senesce Sat.

The pic. Is our current radar? It sure didn’t look like this six years ago today. News article—
1998 - Major F5 tornado struck western Jefferson county Alabama leveling the communities of Oak Grove, Rock Creek, Edgewater, McDonald's Chapel, Sylvan Springs and Pratt City. The tornado lifted just two miles from downtown Birmingham. The twister had a track of 20 miles with the damage path averaging between one-half and three-quarters of a mile in width. 33 people died in the storm.

We drove through the area and I videotaped the damage! It is hard to believe the damage a tornado can do.

(F5) Incredible tornado (261-318 mph)
Incredible damage. Strong frame houses lifted off foundations and carried
considerable distance to disintegrate; automobile sized missiles fly through
the air in excess of 100 meters(109 yds); trees debarked; incredible phenomena will

As we drove through the area I could not believe my eyes! Most homes were gone; the only thing left was the cement slab.

Gang this is just a grim reminder of the fear you get when a thunderstorm rumbles through in the south! I lost a godson, and his mother three years ago. They were in a house trailer. The trailer park was destroyed, like someone dropped a bomb.

We had high wind and thunderstorms last night, all night. You always wonder in the back of your mind is this one ours?

Hi gang, are you ready for some Major Golf? I wont be able to sleep to night, thinking about it. The masters! Defending champ Canada’s Mike Weir. The Kings 50th, And final Masters.

Mike Weir top- Bottom Tigers hole in one today! The King watching.

I worked in the root pit for three hours and only dug up two! They are something else, I had to laugh they hang on. Just when you think you have all the roots cut, there is always one more.

My granpa use to say son, don’t hock up the mule to those privet roots, she’ll pull down a building in China!

I had some ask about a theme for Sunday’s photos? What we were thinking of was shots of something or someone in your area. How big of an area is up to you. The idea is to let every one no a little more about you and where you live. Have fun!

The only thing my son likes about golf is me not talking about it. Have all of you picked the winner yet for the Masters? I have two long shots! Phil Mckelson and John Daly.

I told all of you to go over to Phyllis last night, and see her pic. Today she told me it was not she but Mary Lou! I put my foot in my mouth on that one!

It looks like most of you would like to post a pic. From your area each week. Sounds good! We have theme Tue. , Thu. and Fri.. How about we post a pic. On Sun. I no a lot of you don’t post on the weekend. So if you don’t get it in on Sun. put it in on Mon. We will start 4/11/04. Easter Sunday. It is your pic. Of any thing you wont from your area.

Hi gang, another cool day around Boyd creek. I got out long enough to go to the Doc. office and that was it. He thinks I am having a reaction to one of my meds. I should no in a day or so.

This is a hard post to do tonight. We have talked before how things seam to happen in threes. I told you of my friend’s mother in-law has breast cancer. Late last night I found out one of my best friends wife has a maligned brain tumor. With chemo she has eighteen to twenty-four months. Surgery is Monday the fifth. I ask all of you to remember her in your thoughts and prayers!

M. Went to her friends to spent the night and the house sure is empty. Even the dogs keep looking down the hall at her room.

How many had April fools jocks played on them today? I have read several blogs that have had them. I have been thinking of the song “Fools rush in where Angels never play” something like that. So open up you heart and let this fool rush in! Remember that one?

I am going to try to give you a new sign each day that does exist on a truck or place of business, during the month of April. ‘They are called the Signs of times’.


Thought for the day, live for the day, you were not promised tomorrow.

Word for the day: ma-chree.
