An Ounce Of Prevention….

Run quickly, get your wife’s Glow In The Dark nail polish. Put a nice, thick coat on the POWER button of your TV remote. Word on the street is that…..Since Honey Boo Boo and Mama June are on vacation…..Georgia will be sending Stacey Abrams to give the Democrat Opinion of the SOTU address.

If you hit the power button really quick, you can possibly miss her completely. Chuck (Satan) Schumer is wishing & hoping that Abrams will replace Perdue as Georgia’s senator in the next election.

Run along now…paint that power button…time is getting short before you will see Nancy Pelosi’s smiling face sitting behind our President, Donald Trump.

American Pie….Revisited….Excellent Job

Although Don McLean only released the song in 1971, for those of us who grew up in the 50’s and 60’s this is a great piece with some very poignant moments in the history of those times.

And for those of you who did not, it’s a taste of what you missed!
I knew that “American Pie” was the name of the plane in which Buddy Holly, Richie Valens and The Big Bopper were killed when it crashed in February 3rd, 1959, and I knew the chorus about music dying on that day.

I have listened to American Pie for many years and I thought I understood what was being sung but now realize that I didn’t!

However, when the words are put together with pictures and film clips the song takes on a new meaning.

It took a lot of thought to produce this and it brings back lots of memories and also makes the lyrics really come alive!

The Stupid Tax

 

WRITTEN BY: BILL BOWSER…FROM CINCINNATI, OHIO

 

I just read an article about a bear that was discovered in September 2018 eating the body of a 30 year old man in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park in Tennessee. Within a few days of this discovery, and long before an autopsy was performed on this unfortunate man, the bear was killed (the article uses the term euthanized, but I prefer to call a spade a spade).

Here it is about 3-4 months later and the authorities have just released the results of the autopsy. Apparently our involuntary bear feeder actually died from an overdose of methamphetamine. He paid the stupid tax. While this is a tragedy, especially for the bear, I have very little sympathy for people who experiment with mind-altering pharmaceuticals, and shorten their lives in the process.

The article indicates the dead guy had a long history of drug use. Drug paraphernalia was found near his carcass. He was believed to have been illegally harvesting ginseng in the park. Undoubtedly some folks will miss this guy, but I think we’re better off without him.

I’m aware of the carnage that remains after the untimely demise of people like this, and I sympathize with those who are left suffering, but life is tough, and it’s a lot tougher if you make bad decisions and do stupid things. Getting involved with illegal drugs is stupid. When you do stupid things you have to pay the stupid tax.

Listen to the beautifully sung tribute to growing old after you read the text

Image result for old people and the pledge of allegiance

Old People are easy to spot at sporting events; during the playing of the National Anthem.  They remove their hats and place their hands over their hearts standing at attention.  They know the words and believe in them.

 

Old People remember World War II, Pearl Harbor, Guadalcanal , Normandy and Hitler.  They remember the Atomic Age, the Korean War, The Cold War, the Jet Age and the Moon Landing.  They remember the 50 plus Peace-keeping Missions from 1945 to 2005, not to mention Vietnam .

 

If you bump into an Old Person on the sidewalk he will apologize.  If you pass an Old Person on the street, he will nod or tip his cap to a lady. Old People trust strangers and are courtly to women.

 

Old People hold the door for the next person and always, when walking, make certain the lady is on the inside for protection.

 

Old People get embarrassed if someone curses in front of women and children and they don’t like any filth or dirty language on TV or in movies.

 

Old People have moral courage and personal integrity. They seldom brag unless it’s about their children or grandchildren.

 

Old People who remove their hats while eating in a restaurant in respect for the ladies and guests.

 

It’s the Old People who know our great country is protected, not by politicians, but by the young men and women in the military serving their country.

 

This country needs Old People with their work ethic, sense of responsibility, pride in their country and decent values.

 

We need them now more than ever.
