Happy Hour / Larry-- The Cable Guy
« on: December 05, 2018, 09:33:34 AM »
THIS CABLE GUY HUMOR IS FUNNY, BUT UNFORTUNATELY ITS TRUE! THE MAN'S A GENIUS!!!
 
 
Everyone concentrates on the problems we're having in Our Country lately: Illegal immigration, hurricane recovery, alligators attacking people in Florida .. .. . Not me -- I concentrate on solutions for the problems -- it's a win-win situation.
 
* Dig a moat the length of the Mexican border.
* Send the dirt to New Orleans to raise the level of the levees.
* Put the Florida alligators in the moat along the Mexican border.
 
Any other problems you would like for me to solve today?
Think about this:
1. Cows
2. The Constitution
3. The Ten Commandments
 
 
COWS
Is it just me, or does anyone else find it amazing that during the mad cow epidemic our government could track a single cow, born in Canada years ago, right to the stall where she slept in the state of Washington? And, they tracked her calves to their stalls. But they are unable to locate 11 million illegal aliens wandering around our country. Maybe we should give each of them a cow.
 
 
THE CONSTITUTION
They keep talking about drafting a Constitution for Iraq … Why don't we just give them ours?
It was written by a lot of really smart guys, it has worked for over 200 years, and we're not using it anymore.
 
 
THE 10 COMMANDMENTS'
The real reason that we can't have the Ten Commandments posted in a courthouse is this --
you cannot post 'Thou Shalt Not Steal' 'Thou Shalt Not Commit Adultery' and 'Thou Shall Not Lie' in a building full of lawyers, judges and politicians, it creates a hostile work environment.

What do you Think-- Is this guy sharp as a tack or not?????

Happy Hour / Origons of old sayings
« on: November 29, 2018, 08:03:19 AM »
'A SHOT OF WHISKEY'   - In the old west a .45 cartridge for a six-gun cost 12 cents, so did a glass of whiskey. If a cowhand was low on cash he would often give the bartender a cartridge in exchange for a drink. This became known as a "shot" of whiskey.
 
BUYING THE FARM -  This is synonymous with dying. During WW1 soldiers were given life insurance policies worth $5,000. This was about the price of an average farm so if you died you "bought the farm" for your survivors.
 
IRON CLAD CONTRACT -  This came about from the ironclad ships of the Civil War. It meant something so strong it could not be broken.
 
RIFF RAFF -  The Mississippi River was the main way of travelling from north to south. Riverboats carried passengers and freight but they were expensive so most people used rafts. Everything had the right of way over rafts which were considered cheap. The steering oar on the rafts was called a "riff" and this transposed into riff-raff, meaning low class.
 
COBWEB -  The Old English word for “spider" was "cob".
 
SHIP STATE ROOMS - Travelling by steamboat was considered the height of comfort. Passenger cabins on the boats were not numbered. Instead they were named after states. To this day cabins on ships are called staterooms.

SLEEP TIGHT-  Early beds were made with a wooden frame. Ropes were tied across the frame in a crisscross pattern. A straw mattress was then put on top of the ropes. Over time the ropes stretched, causing the bed to sag. The owner would then tighten the ropes to get a better night’s sleep.
 
SHOWBOAT -  These were floating theatres built on a barge that was pushed by a steamboat. These played small towns along the Mississippi River . Unlike the boat shown in the movie "Showboat" these did not have an engine. They were gaudy and attention grabbing which is why we say someone who is being the life of the party is “showboating".
 
OVER A BARREL -  In the days before CPR a drowning victim would be placed face down over a barrel and the barrel would be rolled back and forth in an effort to empty the lungs of water. It was rarely effective. If you are over a barrel you are in deep trouble.
 
BARGE IN -  Heavy freight was moved along the Mississippi in large barges pushed by steamboats. These were hard to control and would sometimes swing into piers or other boats. People would say they "barged in".
 
HOGWASH -  Steamboats carried both people and animals. Since pigs smelled so bad they would be washed before being put on board. The mud and other filth that was washed off was considered useless “hog wash".
 
CURFEW -  The word "curfew" comes from the French phrase "couvre-feu", which means "cover the fire". It was used to describe the time of blowing out all lamps and candles. It was later adopted into Middle English as “curfeu" which later became the modern "curfew". In the early American colonies homes had no real fireplaces so a fire was built in the centre of the room. In order to make sure a fire did not get out of control during the night it was required that, by an agreed upon time, all fires would be covered with a clay pot called-a “curfew".
 
BARRELS OF OIL -  When the first oil wells were drilled they had made no provision for storing the liquid so they used water barrels. That is why, to this day, we speak of barrels of oil rather than gallons.
   
HOT OFF THE PRESS - As the paper goes through the rotary printing press friction causes it to heat up.  Therefore, if you grab the paper right off the press it’s hot. The expression means to get immediate information.
 
There, don't you feel smarter now?

Happy Hour / Powerful Short Stories
« on: November 26, 2018, 08:12:20 AM »
Powerful stories, to be so short.
 
These twelve short stories are all very good stories and make us think twice about the daily happenings in our lives as we deal with others!!   
 
1. Today, I interviewed my grandmother for part of a research paper I'm     working on for my Psychology class.  When I asked her to define success in     her own words, she said;
 
"Success is when you look back at your life and the memories make you smile.
----------------------------   -- --------------------   --
 
2.  Today, I asked my mentor - a very successful business man in his 70s     what his top 3 tips are for success.  He smiled and said;
 
"Read something no one else is reading, think something no one else is thinking, and do     something no one else is doing."
 
------------------------------ ------------------------
 
3.   Today, after my 72-hour shift at the fire station, a woman ran up to me     at the grocery store and gave me a hug.  When I tensed up, she realized I       didn't recognize her.   She let go with tears of joy in her eyes and the most     sincere smile and said;
 
"On 9-11-2001, you carried me out of the World Trade       Center."
 
-----------------------   ------- -------   ------------------
 
4.  Today, after I watched my dog get run over by a car, I sat on the side       of the road holding him and crying.    And just before he died; he licked the tears off my face.
 
-----------------------   ------- -------   ------------------
 
5.  Today at 7AM, I woke up feeling ill, but decided I needed the money, so I went into work.   At 3PM I got laid off. On my drive home I got a flat tire.    When I went into the trunk for the spare, it was flat too.
 
A man in     a BMW pulled over, gave me a ride, we chatted, and then he offered me a job.
 
I start tomorrow.
 
-----------------------   ------- -------   ------------------
 
6.  Today, as my father, three brothers, and two sisters stood around my     mother's hospital bed, my mother uttered her last coherent words before she     died.   
 
She simply said, "I feel so loved right now.   We should have gotten together like this more often."
 
-----------------------   ------- -------   ------------------
 
7. Today, I kissed my dad on the forehead as he passed away in a small     hospital bed.   About 5 seconds after he       passed,
 
I realized it was the first     time I had given him a kiss since I was a little boy.
 
-----------------------   ------- -------   ------------------
 
8.  Today, in the cutest voice, my 8-year-old daughter asked me to start     recycling.   I chuckled and asked, "Why?" She replied, "So you can help me     save the planet." I chuckled again and asked, "And why do you want to save     the planet?"
 
Because that's where I keep all my stuff," she said.
 
-----------------------   ------- -------   ------------------
 
9. Today, when I witnessed a 27-year-old breast cancer patient laughing     hysterically at her 2-year-old daughter's antics, I suddenly realized that,   
 
I need to stop complaining about my life and start celebrating it again.
 
----------------------   ------- -------   ------------------
 
10.  Today, a boy in a wheelchair saw me desperately struggling on crutches     with my broken leg and offered to carry my backpack and books for me.  He     helped me all the way across campus to my class and as he was leaving he     said,
 
"I hope you feel better soon."
 
-----------------------   ------- -------   ------------------
 
11.   Today, I was feeling down because the results of a biopsy came back     malignant. When I got home, I opened an e-mail that said, "Thinking of you     today.   If you need me, I'm a phone call away."
 
It was from a high school       friend I hadn't seen in 10 years.
 
-----------------------   ------- -------   -------------------
 
12.   Today, I was traveling in Kenya and I met a refugee from Zimbabwe.    He     said he hadn't eaten anything in over 3 days and looked extremely skinny and     unhealthy.    Then my friend offered him the rest of the sandwich he       was     eating.
 
The first thing the man said was, "We can share it."

Happy Hour / Old Farmer's Words of Wisdom
« on: November 17, 2018, 11:31:44 AM »
An old Farmer's Words of Wisdom we could all live by.......
 
Your fences need to be horse-high, pig-tight and bull-strong.

Keep skunks and bankers at a distance.

Life is simpler when you plow around the stump.

A bumble bee is considerably faster than a John Deere tractor.

Words that soak into your ears are whispered....not yelled.

Meanness don't just happen overnight.

Forgive your enemies; it messes up their heads.

Do not corner something that you know is meaner than you.

It don't take a very big person to carry a grudge.

You cannot unsay a cruel word.

Every path has a few puddles.

When you wallow with pigs, expect to get dirty.

The best sermons are lived, not preached.

Most of the stuff people worry about, ain't never gonna happen anyway.

Don't judge folks by their relatives.

Remember that silence is sometimes the best answer.

Live a good and honorable life, then when you get older and think back, you'll enjoy it a second time.

Don't interfere with somethin' that ain't bothering you none.

Timin' has a lot to do with the outcome of a rain dance.

If you find yourself in a hole, the first thing to do is stop diggin'.

Sometimes you get, and sometimes you get got.

The biggest troublemaker you'll probably ever have to deal with, watches you from the mirror every mornin'.

Always drink upstream from the herd.

Good judgment comes from experience, and a lotta that comes from bad judgment.

Lettin' the cat outta the bag is a whole lot easier than puttin' it back in.

If you get to thinkin' you're a person of some influence, try orderin' somebody else's dog around.

Live simply, love generously, care deeply,
Speak kindly, and leave the rest to God.
Don't pick a fight with an old man. If he is too old to fight, he'll just kill you.

Happy Hour / A Chicken Story--They are not Dumb
« on: November 16, 2018, 08:13:08 AM »
I was visiting with an old farmer friend and he was telling me of his experiences with one of his chickens.  It had broken its leg and was having trouble walking so he put a splint on its leg.  Standing in the chicken yard the chicken would come up to him and peck his boot.  He would then pick the chicken up and carry it to the feeder tray to eat.  This went on for several weeks.  The leg healed and the splint was removed with no impairment.   End of story.  No No The chicken continued to peck his boot to be carried to the feeding tray.  The chicken even tried it with his daughter and he instructed his daughter to take the chicken to the feeder tray.  The chicken remembered this and continued to peck feet to be carried to the feeder tray.

Happy Hour / Gunfighter rules
« on: November 11, 2018, 08:31:29 AM »
Gunfight Rules

 "Peace is that brief glorious moment in history when everybody stands around reloading."

 In a gunfight, the most important rule is ... HAVE A GUN!!!

 These are shooting tips from various Concealed Carry Instructors.  If you own a gun, you will appreciate these rules... If not, you should get one, learn how to use it and learn the rules.

 RULES

 A  Guns have only two enemies:  Rust and Politicians. Rust can be prevented, Politicians cannot.

 B  It's always better to be judged by 12 than carried out by 6.

 C  Cops carry guns to protect themselves, not you.

 D  Never let someone or something that threatens you get inside arm's length.

 E  Never say "I've got a gun."  If you need to use deadly force, the first sound they should hear is the safety clicking off, or the hammer cocking.

 F  The average response time of a 911 call is 23 minutes; the response time of a .357 is 1,400 feet per second.

 G  The most important rule in a gunfight is:  Always Win - there is no such thing as a fair fight.  Always Win - cheat if necessary.  Always Win - 2nd place doesn't count.

 H  Make your attacker advance through a wall of bullets ... you may get killed with your own gun, but they'll have to beat you to death with it because it will be empty.

 I  If you're in a gun fight:

    (a)  If you're not shooting, you should be loading.
    (b)  If you're not loading, you should be moving.
    (c)  If you're not moving, you're dead.
 J  In a life and death situation, do something ... it may be wrong, but do something!

 K  If you carry a gun, people will call you paranoid.  Nonsense!  If you have a gun, what do you have to be paranoid about?

L    Never fire a "warning shot", that is just one wasted bullet, which could be needed within moments.
 M  You can say "stop" or any other word, but a large bore muzzle pointed at someone's head is pretty much a universal language; and, you won't have to press 1 for Spanish/Mexican, or 2 for Chinese, or 3 for Arabic.

 N  Never leave a wounded enemy behind.  If you have to shoot, shoot to kill.  In court, yours will be the only testimony.

 O  You cannot save the planet, but you may be able to save yourself and your family.

Happy Hour / The Lawyer
« on: November 08, 2018, 10:26:29 AM »
The Lawyer--
 
 
A lawyer, who had a wife and 12 children   needed to move because his rental agreement was terminated by the owner, who wanted to reoccupy the home.     But he was having a lot of difficulty finding a new house.
When he said, he had 12 children, no one would rent a home to him because they felt that the children would destroy the place.
 
He couldn't say he had no children, because he couldn't lie (as we all know, lawyers cannot, and do not lie).
 
So, he sent his wife for a walk to the cemetery with 11 of their kids.
 
He took the remaining one with him to see rental homes with the real estate agent.
 
He loved one of the homes, and the price was right.
 
The agent asked:"How many children do you have?”
He answered: "Twelve."
The agent asked, "Where are the others?"
The lawyer, with his best courtroom sad look,  answered, “They're in the cemetery with their mother."

 
MORAL: It's not necessary to lie, one only has to choose the right words,  and don't forget, most politicians are lawyers.

General Discussion / Truck Load of fresh mulch
« on: June 07, 2018, 05:17:15 PM »
Where were they when I was physically able to garden.  I have not had a garden in 4 years.

I had to have some electrical line work trimming some trees and shrubs from my electrical entrance wires and was able to talk with he supervisor and get a full load of mulch from the cut up trees and shrubs.   I tried for years to get some dumped but never could get them to do so.

The load turned out to be a pile approximately  5'x10'x10'.  Even though I can no longer use it in my garden my wife and neighbor can use it in their flower beds.  My neighbor has a tractor with a FEL so it can easily be turned.  I'll put about 20# of ammonia nitrate and water it in and get him to turn it.  Next year we should have a good pile of plant-ready mulch.


A little late but still welcomed.

Happy Hour / The year was 1955
« on: May 17, 2018, 05:27:49 PM »
THE YEAR WAS 1955... 


(if I didn't live through it, I wouldn't believe it myself)

Did you hear the post office is thinking about charging 7 cents just to mail a letter?         
 
If they raise the minimum wage to $1.00,  Nobody will be able to hire outside help at the store.             
 
When I first started driving, who would have thought Gas would someday cost 25 cents a gallon?  Guess we'd be better off leaving the car in the garage.             
 
Did you see where some baseball player just signed a contract for $50,000 a year just to play ball?  It wouldn't surprise me if someday they'll be making more than the President.             
 
I never thought I'd see the day all our kitchen appliances would be electric. They're even making electric typewriters now.     
 
It's too bad things are so tough nowadays. I see where a few married women are having to work to make ends meet.     
 
It won't be long before young couples are going to have to hire someone to watch their kids so they can both work.                                                                                                       
 
I'm afraid the Volkswagen car is going to open the door to a whole lot of foreign business.     
 
Thank goodness I won't live to see the day when the government takes half our income in taxes. I   sometimes wonder if we are  electing the best people to government.       
 
The fast food restaurant is convenient for a quick meal, but I seriously doubt they will ever catch on.     
 
There is no sense going on short trips any more for a weekend. It costs nearly $2.00 a night to stay in a hotel.     
 
No one can afford to be sick anymore.  At $15.00 a day in the hospital, it's too rich for my blood.             
 
If they think I'll pay 30 cents for a haircut, forget it.

And ..........The United States 4.2

 

ALL (109) of the countries above America, HAVE 100% gun bans.

It might be of interest to note that SWITZERLAND is not shown on this list, because it has... NO MURDER OCCURRENCE!

However, SWITZERLAND 'S law requires that  EVERYONE:

1. Own a gun.

2. Maintain Marksman qualifications ... regularly .

Did you learn anything from this??

Retire to the South

Georgia

The owner of a golf course in Georgia was confused about paying an invoice, so he decided to ask his secretary for some mathematical help.

He called her into his office and said, "Y’all graduated from the University of Georgia and I need some help. If I wuz to give yew $20,000, minus 14%, how much would you take off?"
The secretary thought a moment, and then replied, "Everthang but my earrings.”

Louisiana

A senior citizen in Louisiana was overheard saying, "When the end of the world comes, I hope to be in Louisiana ..."  When asked why, he replied, "I’d rather be in Louisiana ‘cause everythang happens  in Louisiana 20 years later than in the rest of the world."

Mississippi

The young man from Mississippi came running into the store and said to his buddy, "Bubba, somebody just stole your pickup truck from the parking lot!"  Bubba replied, "Did y’all see who it was?"
The young man answered, "I couldn’t tell, but I got the license number."

North Carolina

A man in North Carolina had a flat tire, pulled off on the side of the road, and proceeded to put a bouquet of flowers in front of the car and one behind it.  Then he got back in the car to wait.
A passerby studied the scene as he drove by, and was so curious he turned around and went back. He asked the fellow what the problem was.  The man replied, "I got a flat tahr.”     

The passerby asked, "But what’s with the flowers?"
The man responded, "When you break down they tell you to put flares in the front and flares in the back. I never did understand it neither."

Tennessee

A Tennessee State trooper pulled over a pickup on I-65.
The trooper asked, "Got any ID?"  The driver replied, "Bout whut?"

Texas

The Sheriff pulled up next to the guy unloading garbage out of his pick-up into the ditch. The Sheriff asked, "Why are you dumping garbage in the ditch?

Don’t you see that sign right over your head." 
"Yep," he replied. "That’s why I’m dumpin’ it here, ‘cause it says: ‘Fine For Dumping Garbage.’"

Y’all kin say whut y’all want ‘about the South, but y’all never heard o’ nobody retirin’ an’ movin’ North, have ya?

Happy Hour / I have become a bird watcher
« on: April 19, 2018, 07:32:52 PM »
Since I am unable to be out and about any more I have become a bird watcher, watching the blue birds that built a nest in one of our blue bird boxes we placed near the carport.  I have gazed out the window watching them go in any out the house for over a month,  The chicks must have now hatched as they are continually going in and out and only staying in the house for a moment or two.  Welcome to life-feeding our family.  We do not disturb them.  As I sit on the couch looking out the window, the wife has ALLOWED me to tie two of the blinds together so I can see better.  Wonder how long that will last.

Looking out the bedroom window onto the porch is one of the wife's flower pots that also has a nest in it.  They are more visible and I have attached a picture below of the 5 mouths waiting to be fed.

Enjoy nature!!
