Creepy Thoughts….

WRITTEN BY: SHEILA TOLLEY

 

Once upon a time, I worked at DeSter, a plastics facility in Thomaston, Georgia. I have so much respect for Mr. John King, The Man In Charge, of DeSter at that time. We were at the point where we needed to hire an additional Production Supervisor. A notification was posted explaining the job requirements so that current employees would have an opportunity to apply for the job. The list of interested employees grew very large.

Mr. King would often come in very early, even before daylight, and make rounds of the production floor as he talked to the employees. One morning I expressed to him “we sure have a lot of internal interest in the job opening for Production Supervisor.” I thought I was making a positive statement to Mr. King. I thought that until he replied, “Yes, we do and that really concerns me.” He went on to explain, “It makes me wonder about the competence of my current Supervisors when so many on the list watch them at work and still think they are qualified for such an important job.”

I was stunned but impressed. His reply changed my way of thinking and I have never forgotten that conversation with Mr. King. I thought about it on Wednesday and Thursday night as I watched, what I could stand of, the Democrat debates.

Now I realize how much Barack Obama “Lowered The Bar” for the expectations of a presidential nominee. Because,  for any of these contenders to think they are qualified to be the Democrat nominee in 2020…that bar has to be so low that a snake can crawl over it.

And one will.

Way Too Much Pasta

For several years, a man was having an affair with an Italian woman.
One night, she confided in him that she was pregnant. Not wanting to
ruin his reputation or his marriage, He paid her a large sum of money
if she would go to Italy to secretly have the child. If she stayed in
Italy to raise the child, he would also provide child support until
the child turned 18.

.
She agreed, but asked how he would know when the baby was born. To keep it
discrete, he told her to simply mail him a post card, and write   ‘Spaghetti’
on the back. He would then arrange for the child support payments to
begin.

One day, about 9 months later, he came home to his confused
wife.’Honey,’she said, ‘You received a very strange post card today.’
‘Oh, just give it to me and I’ll explain it later,’ he said. The wife
obeyed and watched as her husband read the card, turned white, and
fainted. On the card was written:

‘Spaghetti, Spaghetti, Spaghetti, Spaghetti, Spaghetti.
Three with meatballs, two without.
Send extra sauce.’

The Editor:  Do we do a lot of news about airplanes, LL ?

Amelia Earhart  Cat:  We sure do, we could write about airplanes and Californication almost every day.  The only subject with more articles is SEX, but that is in our Platinum Premium Edition.

This is about stupid airline personnel.  The same people leave babies in back seats to die, and small children on school buses for the night.

Washington, D.C. has so many politicians and lobbyist using helicopters that the average person can’t sleep.  I sure hope they  come to their senses and have a protest like in Hong Kong.

TE:  How much free stuff are the Demosmellslikecameldungcreepydrugaddicts promising if elected, AEC ?

Gratis Cat:  College, health care, child care, housing, reparations, gay reparations, free vacations, forget student loans, free transportation, eliminate the national borders, eliminate ICE, abortions for transgender people, and anything else that will get a few vote, have been mentioned.  It’s a fantasy.

TE:  Did the first debate help you decide on a DemocRAT candidate, GC ?

Mensa Cat:  It is a tough choice, they are all smart.  The only way these goofballs will get respect or be in the White House is if Trump invites them for dinner.

What a wonderful world these fools are going to provide.

A Solstice Night in Paris

Explanation: The night of June 21 was the shortest night for planet Earth’s northern latitudes, so at latitude 48.9 degrees north, Paris was no exception. Still, the City of Light had an exceptionally luminous evening. Its skies were flooded with silvery night shining or noctilucent clouds after the solstice sunset. Hovering at the edge of space, the icy condensations on meteoric dust or volcanic ash are still in full sunlight at the extreme altitudes of the mesophere. Seen at high latitudes in summer months, stunning, wide spread displays of northern noctilucent clouds are now being reported.
