Quick update

The weekend flew by as usual! Friday i over did it at church. I cut grass for five hours and when I got off the mower, I couldn't straighten up right away. I hobbled around trying to get things going again but have had problems all weekend. It doesn't hurt to walk, but sitting or bending is a pain. I even have trouble getting in and out of the car.

Did this stop me from playing golf? No way was I going to miss my T-time! LOL! It hurt but hey it would hurt sitting home too!

Looks like warm weather is here. Upper eighties the last couple of days. I am ready for the heat. I have had enough cold. November will be here soon enough!

Have a good week every one. I hope to get around to see everyone in the next couple of days!

Would you believe I wrote this Monday and never got around to posting. Sorry bout that. I have been staying busy out side. I got to keep moveing with this back problem. I'm afraid if I stop I want get going again. It hurts to sit at the puter so I just havent been on. I hope every one has a great weekend!

"What's left to plunder"

There seams to be quite a resemblance between Mexico and America. Each have been raped by foray of intruders. Looks at the history of the country and you will see what i mean. After the country has been carved up by special interest groups there isn't much left.

I don't think there is an American who would not climb a fence if the plight of Mexico was reversed. Zero plus Zero equal Zero! That's what many have and are faced with every day. Forty present of the country are below the poverty level.

106,000,000 are livening in an area three times the size of Texas! America has 130,000,000, 11,000,000 of these belong back in Mexico that have scaled the walls to survive! Think about it for a minute, living day to day in a country who exploits your labor and the people want you to go home! Hiding staying among your own for fear of being sent back to oblivion.

Look around at the work they do. No one else wants these jobs! They are hard dirty and pay little yet the pay gives them a chance to survive. These are hard working proud people who just want the same is you a chance at a better life.

I don't have the answer to the immigration problem but it has to be addressed! These are human beings who are disparate. Build all the walls you want and it will not keep them out. 60% of their work force is service orientation, something has to be done to promote jobs for these people or the border crossing will never stop!

particularly to those I find
troublesome." St. Anthony Mary Claret

"Just Dreaming"

"Your task: To build a better world, said God.
I answered: How?
The world is such a large, vast place.
So complicated now and I, so small and useless am.
There's nothing I can do.
But god in his great wisdom said:
Just build a better you." Anonymous

I played golf yesterday, better than last week but still not all that good. The day was cool and perfect for golf. Two of my buddies had five birdies, one two the other three! That's the most ever in a round. Some times we go for months with out one.

Most will never understand the satisfaction of walking a golf course. Talking with friends, enjoying the outdoors. I am never disappointed with what I see. I love to see the birds fishing in the lake. It's a large lake surrounded buy three holes, eight, nine, and eighteen.

Have a great week everyone, get out and enjoy the fresh air!

Year in review

Comments made in the year 1955:

"I'll tell you one thing, if things keep going the way they are, it's going to be impossible to buy 2 weeks' groceries for $20."

"Have you seen the new cars coming out next year? It won't be long before $2000 will only buy a used one."

"If cigarettes keep going up in price, I'm going to quit. A quarter a pack is ridiculous."

"Did you hear the post office is thinking about charging a dime just to mail a letter?"

"If they raise the minimum wage to 75 cents, nobody will be able to hire outside help at the store."

"When I first started driving, who would have thought gas would someday cost 17 cents a gallon. Guess we'd be better off leaving the car in the garage."

"Kids today are impossible. Those duck tail hair cuts make it impossible to stay groomed. Next thing you know, boys will be wearing their hair as long as the girls."

"I'm afraid to send my kids to the movies any more. Ever since they let Clark Gable get by with saying 'damn' in 'Gone With The Wind,' it seems every new movie has either "hell" or "damn" in it.

"I read the other day where some scientist thinks it's possible to pu t a man on the moon by the end of the century.

"Did you see where some baseball player just signed a contract for $75,000 a year just to play ball? It wouldn't surprise me if someday they'll be making more than the president."

"I never thought I'd see the day all our kitchen appliances would be electric. They are even making electric typewriters now."

"It's too bad things are so tough nowadays. I see where a few married women are having to work to make ends meet."

"It won't be long before young couples are going to have to hire someone to watch their kids so they can both work."

"Marriage doesn't mean a thing any more; those Hollywood stars seem to be getting divorced at the drop of a hat."

"I'm just afraid the Volkswagen car is going to open the door to a whole lot of foreign business."

"Thank goodness I won't live to see the day when the Government takes half our income in taxes. I sometimes wonder if we are electing the best people to congress."

"The drive-in restaurant is convenient in nice weather, but I seriously doubt they will ever catch on."

"There is no sense going to Lincoln or Omaha anymore for a weekend. It costs nearly $4 a night to stay in a hotel."

"No one can afford to be sick any more; $35 a day in the hospital is too rich for my blood."

"If they think I'll pay 50 cents for a hair cut, forget it."

Know friends who would get a kick out of these? Pass it on!

Have a great weekend every one!!!!!!!!!!!!

Indoor Day

Geez, Went to bed raining got up raining, looks like today will be the day to get caught up on the puter.

Yesterday I spend six hours at our church cutting hedges. My best friend has been doing this but after having the stents put in he doesn't need to be doing this kind of work. I jumped in to keep him from doing it. He's hard headed and would be out there trying even if it hurt him.

I hope every one has a great hump day.

Edit: I posted quick this morning right in the middle of a thunder storm! I just got back in from walking Buddy. Should say him draging me up and down the road! LOL! He loves the walk and watches for me to put on my shoes I use for walking! I saw on Tv where Texas got hit hard, my prayers go out to them. We may get some bad weather this afternoon. Although it has cooled off quite a bit.

Two of the kitten got caught outside in the thunder storm late yesterday and spent the night in my sons old truck. They were sure glade to get back in this morning. LOL! I hope to get around to see everyone today. Have a good one!

Monday, Monday

A local barber shop installed a new robotic barber to take some off the pressure off the owner.
A fellow came in for a haircut and after being told about the "new barber" decided he would give it a try. As the robot began to cut his hair, it asked the man, "What's your IQ?"
The man replied, "140." So the robot proceeded to make conversation about physics, astronomy, investments, insurance, and so on. The man listened intently and said "This is really cool."

Later another man who was waiting for a haircut stepped up to the robot's chair, sat down and the robot asked him before beginning his haircut, "What's your IQ?" The man replied "100." So the robot started talking about football, baseball, and so on. This man too thought to himself "Wow! This is really cool."

Next, a third man stepped up to the robot's chair, seated himself and the robot, as with the others, asked him "What's your IQ?" The man replied "30." The robot then said, "So, I understand you Democrats are really excited about Hillary running for president?"

Looking back

This has been one of those weeks where you just can't seem to get any thing done. The week was filled with family doctor and dentist visits. Rain and cooler weather. The cooler weather is actualy a blessing. I haven't turned on the AC yet.( I wander if I've saved enough for a round of golf?)

Our first kitten left the nest. Little yellow male, went to one of my wifes friends, friend. The two bobtail males I am keeping. So I have two females black and one black and white to find a home far. I had a phone call for one but no show! They are so cute skampering around. they are into every thing.

Still working along the creek. This is a slow go because I'm pulling up roots as I go! Hard work but wiil help keep the privits from comming back so fast. I worked with my son cutting grass at the lake yesterday we were through in under three hours! It use to take twelve. The new mower was expensive but as for as I'm concerned it has alrady paid for itself. The lake has never looked as good as it does now.

I got this e-mail this morning...

We have had heavey rain this morning. I can't help but think of those on the coast who just can't or don't want to live any where else. My youngest daughters in-laws lost everything in Gulf Shors. At 65 pluss it's hard to start over! My heart goes out to all those who have no idea what they are going to do!

Have a great sunday everyone. I am scaning some old pics. so I may share some shots of the 60s.

I am not sure exactly how it works, but this is amazingly accurate. Read the full description before looking at the picture.

The picture below has 2 identical dolphins in it. It was used in a case study on stress levels at St. Mary's Hospital.

Look at both dolphins jumping out of the water. The dolphins are identical. A closely monitored, scientific study revealed that, in spite of the fact that the dolphins are identical, a person under stress would find differences in the two dolphins. The more differences a person finds between the dolphins, the more stress that person is experiencing.

Look at the photograph and if you find more than one or two differences you may want to take a vacation.

No Need to Reply, I'll be on Vacation.

God was missing for six days.

Eventually, Michael, the archangel, found him, resting on the seventh day.

He inquired of God. "Where have you been?"

God sighed a deep sigh of satisfaction, and proudly pointed downwards through the clouds, "Look, Michael. Look what I've made."

Archangel Michael looked puzzled, and said, "What is it?"

"It's a planet," replied God, "and I've put Life on it. I'm going to call it Earth and it's going to be a great place of balance."

"Balance?" inquired Michael, "I'm still confused."

God explained, pointing to different parts of earth. "For example, northern Europe will be a place of great opportunity and wealth, while southern Europe is going to be poor.

Over there I've placed a continent of white people, and over there is a continent of black people. Balance in all things," God continued pointing to different countries. "This one will be extremely hot, while this one will be very cold and covered in ice."

The Archangel, impressed by God's work, then pointed to a land area and said, "What's that one?"

"Ah," said God "That's Washington State, the most glorious place on earth.

There are beautiful mountains, rivers and streams, lakes, forests, hills, plains, and coulees. The people from Washington State are going to be handsome, modest, intelligent, and humorous, and they are going to be found traveling the world. They will be extremely sociable, hardworking, high achieving, and they will be known throughout the world as diplomats, and carriers of peace."

Michael gasped in wonder and admiration, but then asked, "But what about balance, God? You said there would be balance."

God smiled, "There is another Washington...Wait til you see the idiots I put there."

My grandpa use to say son, never judge a person by the smile on their face or until you have walked a mile in there shoes. The good book states, judge not and you shell not be judged!

"Don't put all your eggs in one basket"

Think About it...

This makes a lot of sense~ read to the end!!!
A man eats two eggs each morning for breakfast. When he goes to the grocery store he pays .60 cents a dozen. Since a dozen eggs won't last a week he normally buys two dozens at a time.

One day while buying eggs he notices that the price has risen to 72 cents. The next time he buys groceries, eggs are .76 cents a dozen. When asked to explain the price of eggs the store owner says, "the price has gone up and I have to raise my price accordingly".

This store buys 100 dozen eggs a day. I checked around for a better price and all the distributors have raised their prices. The distributors have begun to buy from the huge egg farms. The small egg farms have been driven out of business.

The huge egg farms sells 100,000 dozen eggs a day to distributors. With no competition, they can set the price as they see fit. The distributors then have to raise their prices to the grocery stores. And on and on and on. As the man kept buying eggs the price kept going up. He saw the big egg trucks delivering 100 dozen eggs each day. Nothing changed there.

He checked out the huge egg farms and found they were selling 100,000 dozen eggs to the distributors daily. Nothing had changed but the price of eggs.

Then week before Thanksgiving the price of eggs shot up to $1.00 a dozen. Again he asked the grocery owner why and was told, "cakes and baking for the holiday". The huge egg farmers know there will be a lot of baking going on and more eggs will be used. Hence, the price of eggs goes up. Expect the same thing at Christmas and other times when family cooking, baking, etc. happen.

This pattern continues until the price of eggs is $2.00 a dozen. The man says, "there must be something we can do about the price of eggs".

He starts talking to all the people in his town and they decide to stop buying eggs. This didn't work because everyone needed eggs. Finally, the man suggested only buying what you need.

He ate 2 eggs a day. On the way home from work he would stop at the grocery and buy two eggs. Everyone in town started buying 2 or 3 eggs a day.

The grocery store owner began complaining that he had too many eggs in his cooler. He told the distributor that he didn't need any eggs. Maybe wouldn't need any all week.

The distributor had eggs piling up at his warehouse. He told the huge egg farms that he didn't have any room for eggs would not need any for at least two weeks.

At the egg farm, the chickens just kept on laying eggs.

To relieve the pressure, the huge egg farm told the distributor that they could buy the eggs at a lower price. The distributor said, " I don't have the room for the %$&^*&% eggs even if they were free".

The distributor told the grocery store owner that he would lower the price of the eggs if the store would start buying again. The grocery store owner said, "I don't have room for more eggs. The customers are only buying 2 or 3 eggs at a time". "Now if you were to drop the price of eggs back down to the original price, the customers would start buying by the dozen again".

The distributors sent that proposal to the huge egg farmers. They liked the price they were getting for their eggs but, them chickens just kept on laying.

Finally, the egg farmers lowered the price of their eggs. But only a few cents. The customers still bought 2 or 3 eggs at a time. They said, "when the price of eggs gets down to where it was before, we will start buying by the dozen."

Slowly the price of eggs started dropping. The distributors had to slash their prices to make room for the eggs coming from the egg farmers. The egg farmers cut their prices because the distributors wouldn't buy at a higher price than they were selling eggs for.

Anyway, they had full warehouses and wouldn't need eggs for quite a while.

And them chickens kept on laying.

Eventually, the egg farmers cut their prices because they were throwing away eggs they couldn't sell. The distributors started buying again because the eggs were priced to where the stores could afford to sell them at the lower price.

And the customers starting buying by the dozen again.

Now, transpose this analogy to the gasoline industry.

What if everyone only bought $10.00 worth of gas each time they pulled to the pump. The dealers tanks would stay semi full all the time. The dealers wouldn't have room for the gas coming from the huge tank farms. The tank farms wouldn't have room for the gas coming from the refining plants. And the refining plants wouldn't have room for the oil being off loaded from the huge tankers coming from the Middle East.

Just $10.00 each time you buy gas. Don't fill it up. You may have to stop for gas twice a week but, the price should come down.

Think about it.

As an added note...When I buy $10.00 worth of gas, that leaves my tank a little under half full. The way prices are jumping around, you can buy gas for $2.65 a gallon and then the next morning it can be $2.15. If you have your tank full of $2.65 gas you don't have room for the $2.15 gas. You might not understand the economics of only buying two eggs at a time but, you can't buy cheaper gas if your tank is full of the high priced stuff.

Also, don't buy anything else at the gas station, don't give them any more of your hard earned money than what you spend on gas, until the prices come down..
