Can I tell you guys right up front how great you guys are?  I honestly don’t think that there is a blog/ezine/on-line community anywhere that can compare to the likes of you.  You have been SO supportive of me and understanding of what I’m going through, how can that compare to any where else?  AND you have been supportive of each other.  When one of you makes a comment in the comment section about having an issue or a problem, there is always someone who offers up support and well wishes.  I am honored and blessed to have you guys as readers and contributors to this website. 

Thank you.

So, today is Father’s Day, even though you guys will be reading this the day after that or so.  Fathers are so very important.  Mothers are special and hold a deep and sacred spot in all our hearts, but Fathers are important.  Did you know that in a household without a Father, the child is five times more likely to grow up in poverty and commit crime; nine times more likely to drop out of schools, and twenty times more likely to end up in prison.  Everyone agrees how important it is to have a loving mother at home, but those statistics only appear in a fatherless household.  They disappear in a traditional mother and father or a single parent – father only household.  So, like I said, FATHERHOOD IS AN IMPORTANT, EVEN SACRED DUTY!  Children need a father figure.  It doesn’t have to be a blood father, it can be an adoptive father, father figure, or some masculine person to look up to.  Look inside yourself and see if you are doing all you can to fulfill your fatherly responsibilities to the young people around you.


Today, Monday, when you’re actually likely reading this, (if I can get this done on Sunday night) is the Juneteenth holiday…and I’m not really sure what I’m supposed to say about that.  It is actually today, Sunday, but celebrated on Monday. 

“Juneteenth is a federal holiday in the United States commemorating the emancipation of enslaved African Americans. Juneteenth marks the anniversary of the announcement of General Order No. 3 by Union Army general Gordon Granger on June 19, 1865, proclaiming freedom for enslaved people in Texas.[7] Originating in Galveston, the holiday has since been celebrated annually on June 19 in various parts of the United States, often broadly celebrating African-American culture. The day was first recognized as a federal holiday in June 2021, when President Joe Biden signed the Juneteenth National Independence Day Act into law.[8][9] The Juneteenth flag is a symbol of the Juneteenth holiday.”

And before I get around to telling on myself for doing things that I wasn’t supposed to do, let’s get started on the fun and laughter part of this parade, shall we?

Um…yeah, we are?

After my funeral, I want one of my friends to take my phone and text everyone “Thanks for coming”

“She is master of all she surveys.  And I’m here to make sure that happens.”

Restaurant toilets are so dangerous!!

So many of my dates have gone to use them and vanished!

I lost a friend to marijuana once.

I found him two hours later at Waffle House.


The difference between feeling your nuts and feeling you’re nuts.

The difference between helping your Uncle Jack off the horse and helping your Uncle Jack, off the horse.

“Yes, Miriam, I have the letter opener, bring me today’s mail.”

That moment when you look around at all the stuff that needs to be done and feel so overwhelmed that you sit down and leisurely scroll through your phone instead.

I hate this virtual doctor stuff.  I went on one about a prostate exam.

Now, I can’t find my phone…

Had a bit of a theme going there for a minute, didn’t we?

And a father figure.

Let’s do some mail and some comments, shall we?

Want that tree console? Know anyone with a 3-D printer?
Speaking of trees . . . have you ever watched Treehouse Masters? I saved that neat ‘pergola*’ picture for the day I can hand it to Pete Nelson as a guide for my treehouse.
*I’m thinking it is more of a gazebo: The main difference between a pergola and a gazebo is the function of the roof. A gazebo and a pavilion provide full coverage from the sun, while a pergola allows for sunlight to shine through its slatted roof.

I don’t think I know of anyone with a 3D printer THAT big.  But, it is cool!  And yes, I have watched Treehouse Masters.  It was one of Mary’s favorite shows.  We spent many an hour watching them turn ordinary clusters of trees into beautiful homes in the sky.  And I believe you are right about the differences between gazeboes, pavilions, and pergolas.  I have a pergola in my backyard.  Thanks for sharing.

Okay, as an Emergency Manager, I found this article extremely interesting.  A candle that produces oxygen.  And not just a little oxygen.  Enough for four people for up to 20 hours.  But, read it here.  It’s not long: https://minearc.com/oxygen-candles-providing-emergency-air/

– As I’ve grown older, I’ve learned that pleasing everyone is impossible, but pissing everyone off is a piece of cake.

– I’m responsible for what I say, not what you understand.

– Common sense is like deodorant — The people who need it the most never use it.

– My tolerance for idiots is extremely low these days. I used to have some immunity built up, but obviously there’s a new strain out there.

– It’s not my age that bothers me; it’s the side effects.

– I’m not saying I’m old and worn out, but I make sure I’m nowhere near the curb on trash day.

– As I watch this generation try and rewrite our history, I’m sure of one thing: It will be misspelled and have no punctuation.

– As I’ve gotten older, people think I’ve become lazy. The truth is I’m just being more energy efficient.

– If you find yourself feeling useless, remember it took 20 years, trillions of dollars, and four presidents to replace the Taliban with the Taliban.

– Turns out that being a “senior” is mostly just googling how to do stuff.

– I want to be 18 again and ruin my life differently. I have new ideas.

– I’m on two diets. I wasn’t getting enough food on one.

– I put my scale in the bathroom corner and that’s where the little liar will stay until it apologizes.

– My mind is like an internet browser. At least 19 open tabs, 3 of them are frozen, and I have no clue where the music is coming from.

– Hard to believe I once had a phone attached to a wall, and when it rang, I picked it up without knowing who was calling.

– Sometimes the Universe puts you in the same situation again to see if you’ve learned anything.

– There is no such thing as a grouchy old person. The truth is that once you get old, you stop being polite and start being honest.

Remember when we were little and had underwear with the days of the week on them?  Yeah.  Those would be helpful right now.

Guys I need your help!  In the middle of an argument with my wife, she told me that I’m right.  What the hell do I do next?

Weight Of Million Dollars

Having a million dollars is everyone’s dream isn’t it? But have you ever given thought to how much that million dollars weighs?

How Much Does One Million Dollars Weigh?

We know that the weight of currency is about one gram, regardless of denomination.

So, a million one dollar bills weighs approximately 2,200 pounds, which is 1.1 tons (997 kg). Imagine trying to lug that around!

However, the weight goes down if you use larger currency amounts.

A million dollars in $100 bills weighs around 22 pounds (9.97 kg). That’s much easier to carry around for those who have all those hundred dollar bills available to them.

What About The Weight In Pennies?

Since a penny weighs approximately 2.5 grams, and there are 100,000,000 pennies in a million dollars… it would weigh around 551,155 pounds (250,000 kg)!

That million dollars in pennies weighs as much as 2,816 men. (Weight of average man is 195.7 pounds)

Weight Of $1,000,000 Dollars In Various Denominations

  • Penny – 551,155 pounds
  • Nickel – 220,460 pounds
  • Dime – 500 pounds
  • Quarter – 50,000 pounds
  • Silver Dollar (Morgan and Peace) – 58,863 pounds
  • One Dollar Bill – 2,200 pounds
  • Five Dollar Bill – 440 pounds
  • Ten Dollar Bill – 220 pounds
  • Twenty Dollar Bill – 110 pounds
  • Fifty Dollar Bill – 44 pounds
  • Hundred Dollar Bill – 22 pounds

~ Fun Fact ~
Parker Brothers, which makes the game of Monopoly, has printed more money in their games than the U.S. Reserve has issued real money.

And we’re going to end it here today with a huge thank you to all of you out there for the love and caring that has come this way.  Know that it has been sent back your way as well.  Be well, until we meet again.  Tomorrow, I have Grief Group so I probably won’t get another issue out until Wednesday or so.  So, until then.

    Oxygen candles . . .hmmmmmmm. I want to hike up half of our mountain in Montana, without carrying oxygen canisters with me. So I googled, never found one for sale. Since you are a survival expert, do you have connections for them?

    I am so lucky that I found your website–basically by accident. I was searching for funny memes and your site popped up. Thanks. Joe
