Good Morning Campers,
Coffee … the elixir of life. Sometimes I think I drink WAY too much of the stuff, other times, not NEAR enough. But, I do know that I don’t think that I can live without the stuff.
It’s been a long week. Not necessarily a bad one, just a long one.
COVID cases are increasing across the state so that means that things are getting difficult around the base, so that means my life is getting more difficult with my job.
I’ve received so many wonderful emails and comments from you guys about Baileigh, all I can say is … thanks. You’ve helped a lot. Hearing your stories and how you’ve dealt has helped a lot.
Fortunately, Ida was not bad at all in my area. The area southwest of New Orleans took a bad hit. I have only heard of 1 storm death. Most people paid attention. I hope this doesn’t cause people to take the next one lightly.
Nothing stronger than God’s protection.
That is wonderful news! So happy for you.
And I guess, since we’re sharing mail, let’s tell this story from Dave:
Your key to open a can brought back memories. 17 years ago, my son was in kindergarten. I always packed his lunch with whatever he wanted, within reason. One day I got a note from his teacher, saying she replaced his lunch with a slice of pizza. Her reason was , , , she didn’t have a way to open the can. She did let him eat his crackers though. I think she just didn’t want to open a can of sardines in the classroom!
Okay, that’s funny, and I bet you are 100% right. I bet she just didn’t want that sardine smell in her classroom.
Nearly 100% of all deaths occur on Earth, making it the deadliest planet in our Solar System.
I relabeled all of the jars in my wife’s spice rack. I’m not in trouble yet … but the thyme is cumin.
I don’t care what your religious or political beliefs are …
Just use your damn turn signal.
“So, Sweetheart, do you come here often?”
I thought that I was a good person, but the way I react when people drive slowly in the left lane would suggest otherwise.
I’m pissed. The Last American Military Member left Afghanistan last night. Climbed on the aircraft, got his picture taken and everything. And we left Americans and Allies on the ground … and left them there.
And as soon as we were gone, with the lists we gave them, they started going from house to house and shooting people…with the weapons we left behind. And they took people, hung them by the neck from the Blackhawk helicopters that we left behind and flew them over the city in celebration.
And our president had the nerve to come on TV today and tell the American people what a success it was.
And our president had the nerve to go to Dover AFB to meet the bodies of the thirteen brave men who fulfilled their final duty and gave their life to this wonderful country and he couldn’t even salute their caskets as their commander-in-chief. And he couldn’t even be bothered to give the ceremony his undivided attention, instead having the nerve to glance at his watch as each and every casket was brought by him, like he had someplace more important to be.
And he had the nerve to say what a success it was.
Is he that clueless? Is he that lost? Or is it all done on purpose?
I think it doesn’t really matter. What does matter is that this man does not need to be, deserve to be, nor is he capable of being in charge of himself, much less this country.
Several parents of the fallen service members have said what a horrible experience it was meeting with him, that he spent the time talking about his son. Well, one of the mothers went off on him and rather than stand there and take it like a man, he walked away like the pussy that he is.
And our friends, the Taliban, are now lining up the people that are remaining and telling them to renounce Christianity and when they don’t they shoot them in the head. These are the people that we gave the names to … so they can be lined up and shot.
And he has the nerve to say that this is a success.
Yeah, I’m pissed. I’m mad as hell. But the real problem is … I’m not the only one.
I’m not really sure where to go from here. It’s hard as hell to go back to laughter from here. Plenty of tears … Lots of anger …
But laughter is what we really need right now.
So, that’s what we’re going to go back to. Let’s battle this bullshit with laughter, cause that’s what we do.
MTV needs to stop doing TV shows like “16 and Pregnant” and start doing shows like “18 and Graduated” and “21 and Successful”
Did you know there are three places you can stay for free?
“In your lane”
“Out of my business”
“I don’t want to go to bed!”
Kid needs a spanking!
Wow! Really wise words!!!
At my age, a trail of clothes leading to the bedroom means I dropped them on the way from the dryer.
Today’s Work From Home Tip: Blowing on the wine in the mug will help convince your Zoom meeting that your tea is hot
The greatest “gun” ever invented.
Yes, I know I’m insensitive and politically incorrect for posting these … but you guys knew this going in.
Saw a pack of gummy worms that read “No Artificial Flavor.” Who buys gummy worms hoping they’d taste as close to real worms as possible?
I think we’ve probably seen this one before, but it’s worth seeing again … especially now!
“IF YOU CAN’T FIX IT WITH A HAMMER, YOU’VE GOT AN ELECTRICAL PROBLEM“
WRITTEN BY A 21 YEAR OLD FEMALE.
Wow, this girl has a great plan! Love the last thing she would do the best.
This was written by a 21 yr. old female who gets it. It’s her future she’s worried about and this is how she feels about the social welfare big government state that she’s being forced to live in! These solutions are just common sense in her opinion.
This was in the Waco Tribune Herald, Waco, TX.
PUT ME IN CHARGE . .
Put me in charge of food stamps no cash for Ding Dongs or Ho Ho’s, just money for 50-pound bags of rice and beans, blocks of cheese and all the powdered milk you can haul away. If you want steak and frozen pizza, then get a job.
Put me in charge of Medicaid. Then, we’ll test recipients for drugs, alcohol, and nicotine. If you want to use drugs, alcohol, or smoke, then get a job.
Put me in charge of government housing. Ever live in a military barracks? You will maintain our property in a clean and good state of repair. Your “home” will be subject to inspections anytime and possessions will be inventoried. If you want a plasma TV or Xbox 360, then get a job and your own place.
In addition, you will either present a check stub from a job each week or you will report to a “government” job. It may be cleaning the roadways of trash, painting and repairing public housing, whatever we find for you. We will sell your 22-inch rims and low profile tires and your blasting stereo and speakers and put that money toward the “common good.”
Before you write that I’ve violated someone’s rights, realize that all of the above is voluntary. If you want our money, accept our rules. Before you say that this would be “demeaning” and ruin their “self-esteem,” consider that it wasn’t that long ago that taking someone else’s money for doing absolutely nothing was demeaning and lowered self-esteem.
If we are expected to pay for other people’s mistakes we should at least attempt to make them learn from their bad choices. The current system rewards them for continuing to make bad choices.
I love this one….
AND while you are on Gov’t subsistence, you no longer can VOTE! Yes, that is correct. For you to vote would be a conflict of interest. You will voluntarily remove yourself from voting while you are receiving a Gov’t welfare check. If you want to vote, then get a job.
Isn’t it weird that in AMERICA our flag and our culture OFFEND so many people……
but our benefits don’t?
Mrs. Dragon just made the point, but what about the people who legitimately can’t work. And I replied, that’s different. Those people need to be taken care of and deserve to be taken care of and it’s our responsibility as human beings to do so. This has to do with those people who won’t take care of themselves. You want to be a permanent burden on society, then there should be consequences.
That is an AWESOME brother!!!
Light Pollution From Coast To Coast
Why is everyone at the gym asking me why I am sitting still on a stationary bike?
I’m going downhill, dude, mind your business.
This is what the sun looks like when shot in Ultraviolet.
My wife is coming back home today. I haven’t cleaned or done the dishes for a week. Now she’ll see that I can’t live without her.
I’m so romantic!!
And that’s it for today my brilliant fellow campers. May your day be filled with smiles.
Be well, until we meet again.
