Good Morning Campers,

It’s Thursday.  Almost the weekend.  And the header above has clues to what yesterday was.  Yesterday was the 12th of August and it was … are you ready?  National Creamsicle day!

NATIONAL CREAMSICLE DAY

National Creamsicle Day on August 14th celebrates the creamy citrus dessert on a stick. During the height of summer, what better way to enjoy refreshment than with a creamsicle!

“Creamsicle” is the brand name of an ice cream treat.  It consists of vanilla ice cream on a Popsicle stick with an outer coating of sherbert. While many other flavors now exist, the original flavor was orange. 

Today, recipes abound with creamsicle flavors. From beverages to desserts, the flavor has long been a favorite.

An 11-year-old Frank Epperson inspired the creation when he invented the original popsicle back in 1905. After mixing up a powdered soda, he left the beverage overnight with the stirring stick in it. Temperatures dropped unusually low that night and the next morning, Epperson found the liquid frozen on the stick. He dubbed the creation the Epsicle. Sometime later, he changed the name to Popsicle.

Several generations have enjoyed the fruity, frozen treats and they continue to do so!

So, come on!  Who doesn’t love a creamsicle on a hot day? Anyone?  EVERYONE!  Okay, okay… so that’s way too much about creamsicles.  So, instead…

I came home and my dog peed a little because he was happy to see me.  None of my friends pee when they see me.  I’m surrounded by fakes.

The war on drugs brought in more drugs and the war on terror created more terrorists.  Maybe next year we can have a war on money and jobs and see where it goes.

A RETIREE’S LAST TRIP TO KROGER’S.

 

Yesterday I was at my local   Kroger’s buying a large bag of Purina Dog Chow for my loyal pet, Jake, the Wonder Dog, and was in the check-out line when a woman behind me asked if I had a dog.

 

What did she think..I had an elephant?

 

So because I’m retired and have little to do, on impulse I told her that no, I didn’t have a dog, I was starting the Purina Diet again. I added that I probably shouldn’t, because I ended up in the hospital last time, but that I’d lost 50 pounds before I awakened in an intensive care ward with tubes coming out of most of my orifices and IVs in both arms.

 

I told her that it was essentially a perfect diet and that the way that it works is, to load your pants pockets with Purina Nuggets and simply eat one or two every time you feel hungry. The food is nutritionally complete so it works well and I was going to try it again. (I have to mention here that practically everyone in line was now enthralled with my story.)

 

Horrified, she asked if I ended up in intensive care because the dog food poisoned me. I told her no, I stopped to pee on a fire hydrant and a car hit me.

 

I thought the guy behind her was going to have a heart attack he was laughing so hard. 

 

Kroger’s won’t let me shop there anymore.

 

Better watch what you ask retired people. They have all the time in the world to think of crazy things to say.

 

Forward this (especially) to all your retired friends..

Bozo criminal for today violated bozo Rule #0023: For obvious reasons, donut shops are not the best places to rob. bozo Antoine Cook of Chicago learned this the hard way. Our bozo was standing in line at the neighborhood Dunkin’ Donuts and when it came time to place his order he pulled a gun from his waistband and ordered the clerk to “Give it up!” The next thing our bozo knew he had been grabbed and wrestled to the ground. That’s because standing directly behind him in line at the donut shop was a Chicago police officer. He’s been charged with attempted robbery and assault on a police officer.

Donut shops are the safest places in the world.  And they will be until we defund the police.

I could watch this all day.

What we really need is wider and shorter plates of nachos.  No more tall towers of chips and toppings.

Spread the toppings across a larger area and cover all the chips, not just the top layer.

STAND WITH ME!

I don’t often do this, but I’m going to add my endorsement to the previous endorsements that already accompany this link.  I worked on the last of these beautiful jets at George AFB in California in the late 70s just before they were retired from the service, but here are stories from the men who actually rode them into battle.

~ Sharing what was shared with me ~

Thanks to all veterans for their service!

 

 

Got this from a fellow Brother and wanted to share…. Brought back some memories… Although a “ground pounder”

these guys were just a “click” away on the old PRC-25… Got my ass and my troops asses outta bunches of puppy poop when they provided close air support…

 

Welcome Home,

I personally knew may of these pilots. Like a few of them said, our missions were given to the North before

we flew in. I consider McNamara and his crew were traitors.

What a collection of pilots and their stories of Viet Nam. Got my attention. It was a

different world for them.

Old gray-haired pilots speak….

Us ’60’s and ’70’s veterans can relate !!

 

Take time to read the short blurbs after each photo, and I hope you have a desktop or laptop with a large screen to fully appreciate the photos.

Very damned impressive.

A cowboy went to buy an insurance policy and the agent asked, “Have you ever hand an accident?”

“Nope,” replied the cowboy, “but last summer, a bronco kicked in two of my ribs … and a couple of years a go, a rattlesnake bit me on the ankle.”

“Wouldn’t you call those accidents?”  quizzed the puzzled agent.

“Naw,” the cowboy replied.  “They did it on purpose!”

Hey!!!! Remember this one:

Roken

Well…… we got a comment on it.

Alan F

for the record: Roken is dodelijk is Dutch for Smoking is deadly. You’re welcome

Thanks Alan!  We all know that smoking is deadly, but now being able to say it in Dutch is even cooler!  Unless of course you are a dragon and do that sort of thing for a living …

And another comment from our dear friend …

Leah D.

There is something very wrong with my life.
I have been in total isolation, going on 6 months.
I have been able to procure everything I need, while keeping protected.
Except for my dog’s nails to be trimmed. Poor old thing,she keeps slipping on the wood stairs.
The vet says no nail trims unless it’s with an examination.
Don and I spent 15 minutes trying to figure out what complaint we could make an appointment for. I guess we will have to wait until she breaks a leg, to get her nails clipped?

Here’s my suggestion, because we just went through the same thing with our pups.  Actually two suggestions. 

#1.  If you are intent on going to the vet to have the nails trimmed, tell them that the dog has developed a limp and you’re worried about it.  They don’t need to know that it is probably because the nails are too long and will be cleared up as soon as the nails are trimmed.

#2.  Most dog grooming places are open by appointment – at least they are around here, and they will trim nails…usually much cheaper than the vet will do it.  That’s what we just did with our girls.

In 20 years when kids ask about the 2020 toilet paper shortage, I’m telling them we had to drag out butt’s across the lawn…

Some lady in the grocery store asked me why some eggs are white and some are brown.  I told her the brown eggs are whole wheat.

That’s going to do it for this issue my friends.  I hope you all had a good laugh.  Love and happiness to you all.

Cheers!

    Am I wrong or did Harry and Megan say they would never set foot in the United States as long as Trump was President?
