Good Morning Campers,
Right up front, I want to say how proud I am of you readers who have rallied around Helen who shared with us in the comments how she, too is not having a good holiday season as her husband has recently been diagnosed with leukemia. Helen, we are so very sorry for you and your husband and will of course keep you both in our prayers and best wishes. Helen, please let us know if there is anything that we, as a community can do to help you guys out.
We’ll get to some of the other comments further into the issue, but for now, why don’t we get into the good stuff, shall we?

Daughter: Dad, I have a flat tire!
Dad: Can’t you call your husband?
Daughter: I tried, he didn’t answer.
Dad: Do you have a spare?
Daughter: He didn’t answer either.
I think I’ve said just about every one of these in the last week.
The OMICRON VARIANT reportedly has mild symptoms like soreness and exhaustion. The same thing you’d feel after a hard days work…
No wonder liberals are terrified of it.
Just what every girl wants to find in her stocking
So, David D writes: At least you’ll have the weekend to get an issue out before your surgery on Monday. Well, technically, this is true. And I will be a total wreck by then, so I won’t have anything else to do either, so there’s that, as well., so … good point. And once I’m back home and recovering, I’ll have a lot of free time, so I SHOULD be able to put out a bunch of extra issues, so there’s that, too. So, we’ll have to see. I know I’ll have physical therapy to go to and things like that, but I should have some extra time.
I hate the Kay commercials, “Every kiss begins with Kay.” No, that’s a lie. They usually begin with beer or vodka.
I really can’t think of a single thing to say … you could say that I’m tongue tied.
Okay, so Willow Dragon met her first cat this morning. Now, mind you, Willow is growing like an unwanted weed in a bed of flowers. She’s up to almost 40 lbs and she’s only a little over 5 months old. She’s a big girl. Well, we went out back this morning to do our morning business and there was a little gray cat curled up in the cold on our back bench on our little pergola. She never even noticed as she ran by the first time. Although the cat noticed us. After doing her thing, Willow came running back and the cat had stood up and was meowing and of course this caught Willow’s attention. She stopped, backed up and started growling and barking. I thought she was going to take off after the cat. The cat just sat there and meowed politely. Willow, on the other hand, raised all the hair on her back, ran and hid behind me while she barked and then ran for the back door. She was terrified of this poor little frozen kitty. Now, had Pepper gone out there, Pepper would have chased her to the fence line and bit her little ass if she could have caught her. But Pepper is upstairs, curled up with Izzy Dragon and couldn’t be bothered to go outside at such an ungodly hour of the morning. I laughed so hard that this big old puppy, that outweighs this cat at least 10 to 1 is scared to death of it. I wish I could have brought the poor little thing inside, but I can’t. Mary and Izzy are both terribly allergic, and it does have a collar and belongs to someone in the neighborhood. It’s in our yard all the time, but never for this long. It normally goes home by now. It’s been out on our bench for several hours now.
My brain says, “Let’s do something exciting today.” My body says, “Don’t listen to that fool.”
I don’t have an advent calendar, so I’m just opening cupboard doors and eating whatever’s in there.
I recently took a pole: 99% of people were annoyed when their tents fell down.
This next one is great. Thanks to Stephanie for sharing it with the rest of us. I think that every teenager should have to memorize these rules and be able to recite them to any adult that asks at any time. Except that there are a bunch of “adults” that I know that need to memorize these as well.
My wife was mad at me for my addiction to the Monkees. I thought she was joking.
But then I saw her face.
Now I’m a Believer.
I ran twice yesterday.
First, I ran out of bacon. Then, I ran to get some more.
I was drinking at a bar last night so I took a bus home.
That may not seem like a big deal to you, but I’ve never driven a bus before.
Trump Supporter Hands Cashier $20, Cops Called When He Sees Back
NONE DECEMBER 07, 2021
A Trump-supporter went out for a bite to eat with a few friends at a Texas restaurant. After finishing their meal, he went to the register to pay with a single $20 bill. Much to his surprise, the cashier was a liberal, who quickly called the cops after seeing what was on the back of the money that he was just handed.
David Hill posted an account of an ordeal on Facebook, explaining the unexpected chain of events he was met with when he wanted to spend some time with his buddies at an unnamed Texas restaurant. After deciding where to meet, Hill and his friends headed to a local eatery to enjoy some conversation and a few laughs. However, things would take a turn when it was time to pay the bill.
“Unknowingly, the $20 bill I had in my wallet had ‘Trump Lives Here’ written in permanent marker on the White House,” Hill explained. However, those three words were all it took for all hell to break loose with the employee, who was none too pleased to see what was written on the bill.
“The cashier looks at it and says, ‘I can’t take this money, it’s invalid because it’s been defaced,’” Hill recalled. Stunned, he asked if the cashier was serious only to be left even more shocked when the liberal firmly held his ground, asking if the customer had another form of payment.
At that point, it was a matter of principle, so Hill stuck to his guns as well, telling the cashier that the cash was all he had on him. Leaving the customer even more aghast, the cashier suggested Hill go to a nearby ATM, get some more money, and return to the restaurant to settle the tab. Frustrated, David simply looked the employee in the eye and said, “Nope, the money works, you can take it.”
With the two at a deadlock, the employee threatened to call the police, but the threat was welcomed by the Trump supporter. As a small group of onlookers gathered, a police officer arrived and asked the usual question: “What seems to be the problem here?”
Before Hill could respond, the cashier piped up with a bold accusation. “This man is attempting to pass counterfeit currency which has been defaced, and I’m not accepting it,” he told the officer. Of course, the cop demanded to see the bill, but the cashier didn’t get the reaction that he had hoped for after the officer took a closer look at the money.
“Son, there are millions of bills with writing on them, and it is valid currency, so kindly take it and give the gentleman his change,” the officer informed the employee after examining the bill. But, things were far from over.
Shocking everyone, including Hill and the responding police officer, the cashier replied, “Nope. I’m not taking it.” When the officer asked why not, the employee revealed his motives. “Because anything with Trump’s name on it disgusts me, he’s not my President,” the employee declared. Things weren’t going to go in his favor, though.
After pausing for a second, the cop said, “Ok here’s the deal, take the money and give the gentleman his proper change or his lunch is free today because he’s trying to pay you for the meal.” Much to everyone’s surprise, the liberal cashier would rather give the Trump-supporter a free meal than take the money, so he refused the payment again.
Seeing that the employee wasn’t going to change his mind, the officer turned to Hill and said, “Have a nice day sir, you are free to go.” Then, he turned to the cashier with a warning. “I guess when word gets out that meals are free if Trump’s name is written on a $20 bill on The White House, this place will get swamped with people wanting to eat for free,” the officer pointed out. What’s more, when his boss finds out he’s been costing the business money due to his personal political motivation, he’s likely to be out of a job.
While defacing a bill is frowned upon, as it turns out, this cop knew what he was talking about. According to U.S. code 18 U.S. Code § 333, it’s technically only illegal to deface money to the point that it is “rendered unusable.” Since this was only written on and the bill could still do its job, it was legal tender, meaning that a cashier would have to take it.
Furthermore, if you are working with the public, you need to learn to leave your own political bias at home and treat all paying customers the same. This employee should have taken the cash, just like Hill would have to accept his change if it had a message plastered on it that he didn’t like.
