Dragon Laffs #1980

Well, I don’t know how well this is going to work, but I find myself with some free time this morning.  And you guys … and I … have suffered my rantings enough, at least for the time being, and last night I slept for the first time all the way through the night.  I still can’t sleep with the lights out.  Not really sure why that is, but I don’t feel comfortable being in the dark yet.  But, I did sleep the whole night through.  I woke up feeling fairly refreshed.  Got up, took a shower, shaved (haven’t done that in several days), took care of the doggies; Izzy Dragon is still asleep and I hope resting comfortably.  And I thought, maybe I’d try to put together something of a regular issue.  See how that works.  Because we all know that laugher … or at least some smiles … is probably the best medicine for all of us right now.  I know that being a family, like we are, you guys are suffering to some degree right along with me.  Your heartfelt comments and emails show me that, so what do you say we try to do a little laughing … or smiling today.  For us.


Weirdest looking chicken breast that I’ve ever seen.

The old “My Cat Made Me Do It” Defense.


Might wake up early and go running, but I also might win the lottery…the odds are about the same.

I ran out of coffee this morning.
Jameson seemed like a reasonable replacement.
Everyone is so pretty today.

On our way to the … no, even I can’t go there.


Reading is just staring at a dead piece of wood for hours and hallucinating.

Yeah, okay, just because it’s beautiful.

John S. sent this to me and I’m going to send it to you.  Normally I’d edit it a little bit, but I’m starting to run out of steam (seams I’m not fully up to par yet) so I’m just going to copy and paste:

Apparently the White House referred to Christmas Trees as Holiday Trees for the first time this year, which prompted CBS presenter Steven Levy to present this piece.
The following was written by Steven Levy and recited by him on CBS Sunday Morning Commentary.
My confession:

I don’t like getting pushed around for being a Jew, and I don’t think Christians like getting pushed around for being Christians. I think people who believe in God are sick and tired of getting pushed around, period. I have no idea where the concept came from, that America is an explicitly atheist country. I can’t find it in the Constitution and I don’t like it being shoved down my throat…

Or maybe I can put it another way: where did the idea come from that we should worship celebrities and we aren’t allowed to worship God as we understand Him? I guess that’s a sign that I’m getting old, too. But there are a lot of us who are wondering where these celebrities came from and where the America we knew went to.

In light of the many jokes we send to one another for a laugh, this is a little different: This is not intended to be a joke; it’s not funny, it’s intended to get you thinking.

In light of recent events… terrorists attack, school shootings, etc.. I think it started when Madeleine Murray O’Hare (she was murdered, her body found a few years ago) complained she didn’t want prayer in our schools, and we said OK. Then someone said you better not read the Bible in school… The Bible says thou shalt not kill; thou shalt not steal, and love your neighbor as yourself. And we said OK.

Then Dr. Steven Benjamin Spock said we shouldn’t spank our children when they misbehave, because their little personalities would be warped and we might damage their self-esteem (Dr. Spock’s son committed suicide). We said an expert should know what he’s talking about.. And we said okay..

Now we’re asking ourselves why our children have no conscience, why they don’t know right from wrong, and why it doesn’t bother them to kill strangers, their classmates, and themselves.

Probably, if we think about it long and hard enough, we can figure it out. I think it has a great deal to do with ‘WE REAP WHAT WE SOW.’

Funny how simple it is for people to trash God and then wonder why the world’s going to hell. Funny how we believe what the newspapers say, but question what the Bible says. Funny how you can send ‘jokes’ through e-mail and they spread like wildfire, but when you start sending messages regarding the Lord, people think twice about sharing. Funny how lewd, crude, vulgar and obscene articles pass freely through cyberspace, but public discussion of God is suppressed in the school and workplace.
Are you laughing yet?

Funny how when you forward this message, you will not send it to many on your address list because you’re not sure what they believe, or what they will think of you for sending it.

Funny how we can be more worried about what other people think of us than what God thinks of us.

Pass it on if you think it has merit.

If not, then just discard it… no one will know you did. But, if you discard this thought process, don’t sit back and complain about what bad shape the world is in.

Well, that’s it for now and not bad for a first effort.  Just got called over to the church and rather than finish this later I think I’ll just send it out.  Much love and happiness to you all and many, many, many thanks to each and every one of you for hanging with me and the words of encouragement and love that you’ve shared with me.  It’s still going to be rough, especially through this next week.
