Good Morning Campers,
I friggin’ BLEW IT! I thought Sunday was Armed Forces Day, so therefore, Monday would be the best day to celebrate it here, but NO! It was Saturday! And I screwed it all up! Oh well, it’s not like I don’t have just a couple of things on my mind right now, so here, a couple of days late, is Armed Forces Day!
May 15 this year 2021, commemorates the very special Armed Forces Day. Celebrated on the third Saturday of May every year, this is a very crucial day dedicated to honor the US military forces for relentlessly providing security and protection to the nation. The US military constitutes of the following 6 branches -Air Force, Army, Coast Guard, Marine Corps, Navy, and the Space Force. In addition to the above branches, the Army National Guard and the Air National Guard are reserve components of their services and function, partially, under state authority.
It is to acknowledge the effort of all the people working in these branches that the Armed Forces Day is celebrated unanimously among the US military. The inception of this day goes back to several years. The Defense Secretary Louis Johnson in 1949 on August 31, stated the concept of single-day observation as the Armed Forces Day in order to substitute separate Army, Navy and Air Force Days. As a result, all the armed forces were put together under one unified agency name — the Department of Defense.
Following which, President Truman announced the birth of this momentous Armed Forces Day through his speech praising ‘the military services at home and across the sea’. Therefore, it was Saturday, May 20, 1950 that marked the maiden Armed Forces Day which witnessed a ‘combined demonstration by America’s defense team of its progress under the National Security Act’ directed ‘toward the goal of readiness for any eventuality’.
The role of the commander-in-chief is assumed by the President of the United States. It was President John F. Kennedy who had declared Armed Forces Day as an official holiday, in the year 1962.
Do you know that less than 1% of the population serves in the Armed Forces of the United States? Not even 1%. And did you also know that we don’t swear allegiance to any person or political party. We don’t swear allegiance to the president, an officer or any other person. Nope. What we swear to do is to defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, both foreign and domestic. That’s the oath that we swear … and it NEVER expires.
So, it might be a little late, but grab a military member or a veteran and give them a hug, kiss, or a manly handshake and thank them for their service. For those of you who don’t know any, I’ll be accepting hugs and kisses and handshakes all this week at my cavern.
Now on to the rest of the issue!
I know I disappear a lot – I don’t text back consistently – and I’m distant. The truth is … I’m a superhero.
Them: How many pushups can you do?
Me: If they’re the orange flavor, I know for a fact I do do 7 of them in one sitting.
Ain’t No Fucking Way!!!!!
Okay, I am NOT responsible for this. I was not there. That is not my dart.
Even though there are days I wish I could change some things that happened in the past, there’s a reason the rear view mirror is so small and the windshield is so big, where you’re headed is much more important than what you’ve left behind.
Some people wait all day for 5 pm, all week for Friday, all year for the holidays, all their lives for happiness. Don’t be one of them. Don’t wait until your life is almost over to realize how good it has been. The good life begins right now, when you stop waiting for a better one. One day you’ll wake up and there won’t be any time to do the things you’ve always wanted. Do it now. ~ Kelly’s Treehouse
Everybody celebrates dragons!
Ever notice how many towns are named after their water tower?
If you find yourself bored on a Saturday …
Just go to an unknown wedding and shout, “I still love you!!” and wait for the drama to unfold.
“Can I borrow a cup of pollen?”
I think that’s a perfect idea!
Congress? Are you listening?
Have you ever really thought about how, when you look at the moon, it’s the same moon that Shakespeare and Marie Antoinette and Van Gogh and Cleopatra looked at?
They all looked at that same moon.
They’re all dead.
The moon is killing people.
Wake Up America!
The Bozo Criminal for today comes from Kennesaw, Georgia where Bozo Robert Carter stole the cellular phone out of Jennifer Brown’s car.When Jennifer went to a pay phone to call her husband Bob to tell him of the theft, her husband told her that he was talking to the Bozo phone thief at that very moment on the other line. It seems the Bozo had just started hitting buttons on the phone and hit one of the speed dial buttons for Jennifer’s home. The Bozo told Bob he was holding the phone hostage and if he ever wanted to see his phone again, he should bring $80 dollars to a nearby park. Bob went to the park with the money and with the police. They found the Bozo right where he said he would be, sitting on a park bench and playing with the phone. Yeah … I don’t think you’re doing that right.
The Bozo Criminal for today comes from Cheyenne, Wyoming where Bozo Walter Swain planned his bank robbery down to every last detail, or so he thought. He knew exactly where to hide the getaway car so no one would see it. He knew when the security guard took his break. He even knew which day the bank tellers had the most cash on hand for cashing checks. He had every detail covered–so why is he a Bozo? Because he forgot one small detail–he forgot to bring a slip of paper to write the hold up note on. So, he grabbed the first scrap of paper he found in his car, wrote the note on it, walked in and handed the note to the teller. She gave him the money, he walked out the door and drove away. He probably would have gotten away with it except for that small detail about the paper. You see, he wrote his hold up note on the back of one of his own checking account deposit slips!
That must have been one hell of a right hand turn!
If you’re confused … don’t know what this one means … I’m so very, very sorry. But guess what? You can go right here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cVsQLlk-T0s and find out.
Someone should start a rumor of a shortage of jobs so everyone will panic and get one.

Being happy doesn’t mean everything is going good. It just means the drugs are working.
The problem with most close-minded people is that their mouths are always open.
I need that kind of coffee that’s so strong – when I take a sip, my ancestors wake up.
Restaurant toilets are so dangerous!
So many of my dates have gone to use them and vanished!
There’s enough concrete in the Hoover Dam to build a two-lane highway from San Francisco to New York City.
Me: How much for the angry lawn gnome?
Yard Sale Lady: That’s my toddler.
Okay, an awful lot of you have a lot to say out there. I think I have more political and politically leaning memes collected right now than I have ever before in the past. Not sure if I’ll get to all of them or not, but we’ll see.
Biden’s press conference was like watching a caveman attempt brain surgery.
Are we banning rap music yet? It’s a lot more racist than Pancake syrup or rice.
Ignoring evidence of election fraud because the election is already over is like ignoring a murder because the victim is already dead.
A Good First Step To Fixing America
Would be to prosecute politicians who violate their Oath of Office to Preserve, Protect, and Defend the Constitution of the United States of America
And yet the 1% of the population who promised to put their lives between the evil in the world and the rest tend to get treated the worst
I just found a Document that says ALL of our

It’s pretty old though …

The current cry is “Hold Police Accountable.” I truly believe police would do a better job if COURTS actually held CRIMINALS accountable.
The pipeline shutdown was an all-hands-on-deck situation for a young presidency that has also had to deal with a pandemic, a recession, an influx of unaccompanied children at the southern border, a troop withdrawal from Afghanistan and high-stakes showdowns globally that carry the specter of war.
All of Fucking which they created …….
What scares me most is not the fact that our media is lying to us. It’s the fact that most of you believe them.
It that thought doesn’t scare the shit out of each and every one of you … then you haven’t thought it all the way through yet. Go ahead, I’ll wait. But, not too long.
The Swamp did not get drained, but the water got low enough for us to see all the hideous creatures residing therein.
And that my friends, is going to have to be it for today. I hope you had as much fun as I did. Love and happiness to you all.
Had a post on FB come up worth a blurred image because it could be considered offensive to some.
The story was a white cop helped black man story. The picture was them both smiling and shaking hands. It’s a shame that they considered this offensive.
I hope I’m on a roll . . .
On Saturday, I got my hair cut . . . 7 months worth!
On Sunday we found cottonwood tree fluff had strangled our AC, and once cleaned, worked right again.
They say things come in threes, so I am expecting today to be another great day. It has started out that way, with a GREAT issue of Dragon Laffs!
Then I’ll pass the dice to you, and hope you get a great roll.
Not only was I confused, I still am. The video link is not available in The Netherlands……
Don’t post the Bill Gates one on face book, it WILL get you banned. The truth and questioning Bill Gates goes against their “community standards” such as they are. I forgot to warn about that.
Yeah. I don’t post on Facebook anyway, so no worries. But, thanks for the warning, brother
