Here is a true sportsman.
The Editor: What is going on, LL ?
I Have Outlived My Usefulness Cat: Wut is going on here ?
Here is a joke. Anyone who is informed about the JFK murder knows it was LBJ, The CIA, and FBI. The agencies are now trying to take Trump down.
American dreams are in danger.
Here is where they want you to live, since thousands are smuggled in every day in shipping containers. You can live like rats. They haven’t learned a thing since the first public housing project was built.
Wut San Francisco needs is some competent public officials.
God went to the Arabs and said,
‘I have Commandments for you that will make your lives better.’
The Arabs asked, ‘What are Commandments?’
And the Lord said, ‘They are rules for living.’
‘Can you give us an example?’
‘Thou shall not kill.’
‘Not kill? We’re not interested..’
So He went to the Blacks and said, ‘I have Commandments.’
The Blacks wanted an example, and the Lord said,
‘Honour thy Father and Mother.’
‘Father? We does’nt know who he be,
We’re not interested.’
Then He went to the Mexicans and said,
‘I have Commandments.’
The Mexicans also wanted an example, and the Lord said ‘Thou shall not steal.’
‘Not steal? We’re not interested.’
Then He went to the French and said,
‘I have Commandments.’
The French too wanted an example and the Lord said, ‘Thou shall not commit adultery.’
‘Sacre bleu!!! Not commit adultery? We’re not interested.’
Finally, He went to the Jews and said,
‘I have Commandments..’
‘Commandments?’ They said, ‘How much are they?’
‘We’ll take 10.’
There. That, should piss off just about everybody…..*
(I remember this little poem from a very dear friend of mine…from many years ago. mst)
“In Flanders Fields” is a war poem in the form of a rondeau, written during the First World War by Canadian physician and Lieutenant Colonel John McCrae. He was inspired to write it on May 3, 1915, after presiding over the funeral of friend and fellow soldier Alexis Helmer, who died in the Second Battle of Ypres. According to legend, fellow soldiers retrieved the poem after McCrae, initially unsatisfied with his work, discarded it. “In Flanders Fields” was first published on December 8 of that year in the London-based magazine Punch.
It is one of the most popular and most quoted poems from the war. As a result of its immediate popularity, parts of the poem were used in propaganda efforts and appeals to recruit soldiers and raise money selling war bonds. Its references to the red poppies that grew over the graves of fallen soldiers resulted in the remembrance poppy becoming one of the world’s most recognized memorial symbols for soldiers who have died in conflict. The poem and poppy are prominent Remembrance Day symbols throughout the Commonwealth of Nations, particularly in Canada, where “In Flanders Fields” is one of the nation’s best known literary works.
In Flanders fields the poppies blow
Between the crosses, row on row,
That mark our place; and in the sky
The larks, still bravely singing, fly
Scarce heard amid the guns below.
We are the Dead. Short days ago
We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow,
Loved and were loved, and now we lie
In Flanders fields.
Take up our quarrel with the foe:
To you from failing hands we throw
The torch; be yours to hold it high.
If ye break faith with us who die
We shall not sleep, though poppies grow
In Flanders fields.
Lois Lion only had a chance to take one nap yesterday…so she is sleeping in today after her release of today’s edition of The Sphinx.
I pointed out that her one nap was 23 hours long….and she pointed me to today’s walking trail. She gave me a little lecture that went something like this……….”Listen up, you rusty old woman, I can turn my cat body into circles both forward and backwards, I can climb trees, and catch hummingbirds mid-flight. So…you do not tell me when and how to nap. In fact, I insist that you and the crew get limbered up a little before I even allow your entrance into today’s walking trail.
What did I say back to Lois Lion, you may ask? I said, “Yes Ma’am” of coarse.
So let’s get moving so we can enjoy today’s scroll….That is, if we humans can still move!
Enjoy your scroll of The Sphinx plus 12 new fun filled posts!
