FOOD FOR THOUGHT—REMEMBERING JAN HOWARD


From: Hank Ashmore

REMEMBERING JAN HOWARD

Jan Howard, a country icon and Grand Ole Opry member of 49 years, has passed away at the age of 91 in Gallatin, Tenn. The news was confirmed in a statement from the Opry obtained by Fox News. In a statement, Opry vice president and executive producer Dan Rogers said: “Jan Howard was a force of nature in country music, at the Opry, and in life. We were all so lucky so many nights to hear her voice on stage and to catch up with her backstage. We’re all better for having had her in our lives.”

Howard  first found mainstream success with her hit “The One You Slip Around With” in 1960. Other notable hits of Howard’s include “Too Many Teardrops Too Late,” “Just As I Am” and “Evil On Your Mind.” She earned Grammy nominations for “Evil On Your Mind” and “My Son,” a track written for her son Jimmy, who was later killed in action in Vietnam. Howard often collaborated with Bill Anderson, finding success in their hit duets “For Loving You” and “He’s Got The Whole World.”

According to Billboard, Howard is survived by one of her three sons, two grandchildren and three great-grand children.

WAKE UP AMERICA BEFORE IT’S TOO LATE!

“If our country is to survive and prosper, we must summon the courage to condemn and reject the liberal agenda, and we had better do it soon.”

AN OPINION FROM THE DEPLORABLE INFIDEL

Rahm Emanuel once said: “You should never let a good crisis go to waste.” Nancy Pelosi took this advice when she loaded the Conoravirus Stimulus Bill with all kinds of pork to further her progressive agenda, which delayed the passage of the legislation. If anything good should come out of the coronavirus pandemic, maybe it will be the people of this country see how little the moron America hating Democrats care for the American people, for all they want is power.

 

A SIMPLE TRUTH FOR TODAY

Ask your bartender….

 Ever since I was a child, I’ve always had a fear of someone under my bed at night. So I went to a shrink and told him: “I’ve got problems. Every time I go to bed I think there’s somebody under it. I’m scared. I think I’m going crazy.”

.

“Just put yourself in my hands for one year” said the shrink. “Come talk to me three times a week and we should be able to get rid of those fears.”

“How much do you charge?”

“Eighty dollars per visit,” replied the doctor.

“I’ll sleep on it,” I said.

Six months later the doctor met me on the street. “Why didn’t you come to see me about those fears you were having?” he asked.

“Well, eighty bucks a visit, three times a week for a year, is $12,480.00.”

A bartender cured me for $10.00. I was so happy to have saved all that money, so I went and bought me a new pickup truck.

“Is that so?” With a bit of an attitude he said, “And how, may I ask, did a bartender cure you?”

“He told me to cut the legs off the bed. Ain’t nobody under there now.”

.

It’s always better to get a second opinion.

Damn Your Green Thing….

Image result for the green thing

 

Checking out at the store, the young cashier suggested to the much older lady that she should bring her own grocery bags, because plastic bags are not good for the environment. The woman apologized to the young girl and explained, “We didn’t have this ‘green thing’ back in my earlier days.”

The young clerk responded, “That’s our problem today. Your generation did not care enough to save our environment for future generations.”

The older lady said that she was right our generation didn’t have the “green thing” in its day. The older lady went on to explain: Back then, we returned milk bottles, soda bottles and beer bottles to the store. The store sent them back to the plant to be washed and sterilized and refilled, so it could use the same bottles over and over. So they really were recycled.

Grocery stores bagged our groceries in brown paper bags that we reused for numerous things. Most memorable besides household garbage bags was the use of brown paper bags as book covers for our school books. This was to ensure that public property (the books provided for our use by the school) was not defaced by our scribblings. Then we were able to personalize our books on the brown paper bags.

We walked up stairs because we didn’t have an escalator in every store and office building. We walked to the grocery store and didn’t climb into a 300-horsepower machine every time we had to go two blocks.

Back then we washed the baby’s diapers because we didn’t have the throw away kind. We dried clothes on a line, not in an energy-gobbling machine burning up 220 volts. Wind and solar power really did dry our clothes back in our early days.

Kids got hand-me-down clothes from their brothers or sisters, not always brand-new clothing.
Back then we had one TV, or radio, in the house — not a TV in every room. And the TV had a small screen the size of a handkerchief (remember them?), not a screen the size of the state of Montana.
In the kitchen we blended and stirred by hand because we didn’t have electric machines to do everything for us.

When we packaged a fragile item to send in the mail, we used wadded up old newspapers to cushion it, not Styrofoam or plastic bubble wrap. Back then, we didn’t fire up an engine and burn gasoline just to cut the lawn. We used a push mower that ran on human power. We exercised by working so we didn’t need to go to a health club to run on treadmills that operate on electricity.

We drank from a fountain when we were thirsty instead of using a cup or a plastic bottle every time we had a drink of water. We refilled writing pens with ink instead of buying a new pen, and we replaced the razor blade in a razor instead of throwing away the whole razor just because the blade got dull.

Back then, people took the streetcar or a bus and kids rode their bikes to school or walked instead of turning their moms into a 24-hour taxi service in the family’s $45,000 SUV or van, which cost what a whole house did before the “green thing.”

We had one electrical outlet in a room, not an entire bank of sockets to power a dozen appliances. And we didn’t need a computerized gadget to receive a signal beamed from satellites 23,000 miles out in space in order to find the nearest burger joint.

But isn’t it sad the current generation laments how wasteful we old folks were just because we didn’t have the “green thing” back then?

Please forward this on to another selfish old person who needs a lesson in conservation from a smart ass young person. We don’t like being old in the first place, so it doesn’t take much to piss us off… Especially from a young smart-ass who can’t make change without the cash register telling them how much.

ON MY QUOTEBOX…..Send me to jail or hell, but not new york

“New York City is the most densely populated city in America. New York City has the most illegal immigrants. New York City has the most Coronavirus deaths in the United States. New York City is a sancuary city. It appears to be a poor sanctuary, doesn’t it? Maybe cities should have occupancy limits like elevators…American only would be a good start-up rule.”
