LAST DAY OF FEB, STARTING MY 5TH YEAR HERE

It has been so long and yet it seems like yesterday when I hesitatingly started to write my first blog. I've seen a lot of changes, a lot of friends GONE.  But I find new friends coming on.  There are days when this site is very slow. Sometimes I...

Flying Saucers ARE REAL

I just figured out Flying Saucers are real. I know what is going on. FLYING SAUCERS ARE HERE TO DEMONSTRATE THAT OUR GOVERNMENTS -- ALL GOVERNMENTS -- CANNOT BE TRUSTED. Yeap, the goernment bigwigs keep it secret from us, and try to cut...

LIBERALS – TOO DAMNED CONSERVATIVE

LIBERALS – TOO DAMNED CONSERVATIVE   They want bigger and better government, a world government. Under certain circumstances that would be ideal. But not at the cost of our freedoms. In man's search for freedom from tyranny --...

WHERE IS THE SCAM? I know it is there.

  I can feel it! Greed is growing like a weed in me. If I can win a little something everyday, Why not a BIG something. I can feel greed's slimy fingers clutching at me, getting a tight hold on me.   This ability to feel the quick growth...

Woah-Down! I'm kinda SLOW

I've been working on this double entendre puzzle for about 68 years. That was when I first saw TO HAVE AND HAVE NOT - the Howard Hawks version with Humphrey Bogart and Lauren Bacall. You know the one. She calls him Steve (though his character...

THE TRUTH ABOUT ROSSE-NEERS

I had an uncle who was a pretty good farmer. Or might have been except for his unlucky streaks. He could make things grow and he was a pretty good cook when he wanted to be. He inherited a pretty big spread when he was far to young to handle it. He...

MIDNIGHT BOYS

I mean life begins at midnight doesn't it? There were quite a few midnight boys when I was in military school. It is probably that way at other types of schools also. But I can only speak of the the world I knew. Midnight! I've always been...

MY BEST YEAR -- ON THE GOLF COURSE

It is the year I most remember and it was a very happy one. I wasn't playing, I was a caddy. The green trees and the great grass on that championship course still fill my memories. The smell of the course was a wonder in itself. I'd always...

Scribbles 30, THOUGHTS and INSPIRATION

I originally came to thoughts in order to expand my writing style away from the Associate Press style I had used in much of my adult life. I'm now starting my fifth year on thoughts and have had many friends who inspired me, whose writings made me...

OH OH. FLU?? SOMETHING WORSE?? ( + UP dates )

I woke, knowing something is wrong.  The taste of someting I had for dinner is in my mouth.  I'm too hot and cold all over.  No way to get comfortable with that.  I haven't had stomach flu for 38 years and can't remember what it feels like at first...

LADY'S CHOICE

Really! So many women choose a second rate husband. You think you'll add new seat covers and he'll look like new. It doesn't work. All your makeovers just point out whatever weakness is there.  It's your choice. Don't mess it up. If he's not...

My Birthday

Yesterday I was 78 years old, officially. Today I am 77.  Next year I will be 76, then 75.  In a few years I'll have to go back to work, being too young to retire.  Why not have backward birthdays?  Sounds good to me, No, I don't think I am...
