Saturday Morning Reflection #22

Good morning everyone...

As you can see the Blog is right on time today. That means that the "wild" that was welling up inside of me was snowed out. There is always next time.

The work week was fairly uneventful. Nothing major and nothing really all that interesting to report. I suppose I could update you on the ex wife. Oh...wait there is no update because she won't come in and sign the paperwork so that I can get the title to my truck. There is some talk of asking the judge to appoint a special "commisioner" to sign the paperwork. The biggest drawback is that
I would back in court fighting over payment to the "commisioner" for performing a function she is supposed to do. There has also been some discussion as the whether or not she is in violation of the Court Order and if the Judge should issue a warrant and have her to answer that. Nothing solid yet, but stayed tuned for further updates.

Spring is approaching and I am so ready. Fishing, camping, and the great outdoors await. I might try sneaking up to Canada a couple of days this year. I do know that I am headed south for some VACATION.

Teresa...Congrats...and I knew you would like this blog. I hope that all goes well. is one for you...

The Lion and the Mime

One day an out-of-work mime is visiting the zoo and attempts to earn some money as a street performer.

However, as soon as he starts to draw a crowd, the zookeeper grabs him and drags him into his office.

The zookeeper explains to the mime that the zoo's most popular attraction, a gorilla, has died suddenly. The keeper fears that attendance at the zoo will fall off. He offers the mime a job to dress up as the gorilla until they can get another one. The mime accepts.

The next morning, before the crowd arrives, the mime puts on the gorilla suit and enters the cage. He discovers that it's a great job. He can sleep all he wants, play and make fun of people and he draws bigger crowds than he ever did as a mime.

However, eventually the crowds tire of him and he gets bored just swinging on tires. He begins to notice that the people are paying more attention to the lion in the cage next to his.

Not wanting to lose the attention of his audience, he climbs to the top of his cage, crawls across a partition, and dangles from the top to the lion's cage. Of course, this makes the lion furious, but the crowd loves it.

At the end of the day the zookeeper comes and gives the mime a raise for being such a good attraction as a gorilla.

Well, this goes on for some time. The mime keeps taunting the lion, the crowds grow larger, and his salary keeps going up. Then one terrible day when he is dangling over the furious lion, he slips and falls. The mime is terrified. The lion gathers itself and prepares to pounce. The mime is so scared that he begins to run round and round the cage with the lion close behind.

Finally, the mime starts screaming and yelling, "Help, Help me!", but the lion is quick and pounces. The mime soon finds himself flat on his back looking up at the angry lion and the lion says, "Shut up you idiot! Do you want to get us both fired?"

Well, until the next time...please remember that I have to pay the bills

Saturday Morning Reflection #21

Good morning everyone...

This morning I would like to start with the recovery effort in Haiti. My prayers go out to the people there that have been devastated by such an awesome act of nature. I would also like to say congratulations to Sherry on the wonderful news she just received....C'mon now..."Fight like a girl."

I spoke with my lawyer's office on friday. The ex wife has still not signed the paperwork so that I can obtain the title to my truck. I am not even going to get pissy with/about her on here...enough is enough. Just stop and sign the form.

My house is very quiet this morning. Josie Cat is asleep beside of me and there are the sounds of 14 y/o girls sleeping in the other room. The only real noise is the clicking of the keyboard keys. As the days have slowly trickled by, I find myself becoming settled and much calmer. Yesterday as I talked with friends, I felt the WILD welling up inside of me. I am not sure what is gonna happen but it usually leaves a scar of some sort. I believe next weekend may prove to be interesting. Stay tuned for more updates on this.
Since this a reflection I guess there should be some talk of the past week. There were some real jaw droppers (Ya Think!?). My answer to them are...I don't plow the other man's field. 'Nuff said.
The other reflections from the past week refer back to the people I have been in contact with. I suppose the only thing to say to that is...I am who I am and that is who I always will be.
The last item of business...I have ice again!!!!!! Thanks dude...although if you had waited until I got here I would have helped you run the line.

Ginger this one is for you...
There were two old guys, Abe and Sol, sitting on a bench in a park feeding pigeons and talking about baseball, just like they did every day. Abe turns to Sol and says, "Do you think there's baseball in heaven?"

Sol thinks about it for a minute and replies, "I dunno, Abe. But let's make a deal: If I die first, I will come back and tell you -- and if you die first, you come back and tell me -- if there is baseball in heaven."

They shake on it and, sadly, a few months later poor Abe passes on. One day soon afterward, Sol is sitting there feeding the pigeons by himself when he hears a voice whisper, "Sol... Sol...."

Sol responds, "Abe! Is that you?"

"Yes it is Sol," whispers the spirit of Abe.

Sol, still amazed, asks, "So, is there baseball in heaven?"

"Well," says Abe says, "I got good news and I got bad news."

"Gimme the good news first," says Sol.

Abe says, "Well... there is baseball in heaven."

Sol says, "That's great! What news could be bad enough to ruin that!?"

Abe sighs and whispers, "You're pitching on Friday."

Well, until the next time...please remember that I have to pay the bills

Saturday Morning Reflection #20

Good morning everyone...Let me start today by asking everyone to please pray for some speedy help to arrive in Haiti.

Its the weekend. Pure and simple. I hope everyone has a good one. Mine is rather slow and quiet, even though it is a 3 day weekend. I am working a shift at Beech Fork. That will be fun. As fun as working can be I suppose.

Tax season is approaching rapidly. I am hoping "Uncle Sam" is kind this year.

Through the course of our lives many issues come and go. Often, we believe the circle has closed and the item has gone away. Seems lately that a few issues that I thought had come full circle and were closed have re-opened (OK, stop it...its not what you first thought. THERE IS NO CHANCE OF THAT EVER HAPPENING).

Contentment reigns thoughout the Knight household. All is well here. The freedoms that America gives us along with my spirit combine to make my life good and interesting, or at least interesting enough for me. I am looking forward to springtime, but would like to pull off one more winter fling. Perhaps a trip to somewhere. I am not sure where, or with who, but I feel the urge. Maybe next week I will have more definite plans. you go...
When I go to casinos, the most ridiculous sign I see is the one that says..."If you have a gambling problem, call 1-800- GAMBLER."

So, I call them and say, "I have an ace and a six. The dealer has a seven. What do I do?"

Well, until the next time...please remember that I have to pay the bills.

Saturday Morning Reflection #19

Good Morning Everyone...This mornings reflection finds me bleary eyed and sleepy. The ghosts of the past seem to have wanted me awake last night. They did that mission very well.

Once again things are changing in my life. New adventures to look forward to. New paths to be followed. I suppose I am just not sure where they will lead. Those of you that know about the job offer...I have decided to decline as I don't want to start over outside of the government. Guess I will be staying a while longer.

Josie Cat is sitting on the arm of the chair beside me. I envy her ability to sleep the unburdened sleep that cats so often have. I can almost hear her snoring.

How about this weather? I haven't seen it this cold here since the late 70's. I saw colder weather in North Dakota, but here? WOW...maybe I should send for a Nodak woman to keep me warm. There are a couple of people chuckling over that....Oof Da

Ginger...once again I didn't forget about you...

The newlywed wife said to her husband when he returned from work, "I have great news for you. Pretty soon, we're going to be three in this house instead of two."

Her husband ran to her with a smile on his face and delight in his eyes.

He was glowing with happiness and kissing his wife when she said, "I'm glad that you feel this way since tomorrow morning, my mother moves in with us."

Well, until the next time...please remember that I have to pay the bills

Saturday Morning Reflection #18

Happy New Year Everyone...

Let me start this morning by saying that I hope everyone has a prosperous and wonderful new year that is filled with adventure and joy.

This morning as I look around the house I see the things that have been allowed into my life. I see Latisha, Josie Cat, and stuff. My life is filling with with people that care for me and that I care about. I hope that I can clear the bile and venom from the past few years from my life and keep it gone. Monday, as many of you know, I have to once again return to the lawyers office to sign paperwork. The paperwork to make a correction to my divorce papers. A simple administrative error. I also have to "fill out" a form for me to get her to sign so that I can get the title to MY TRUCK. Being the cunt that she is, she refused to sign it as she was afraid that I would try and take her "vehicle" with it. Doesn't she have any sense and see that the form is for the Great State of Ohio and she exists in kentucky? Perhaps this is just another way to try and irritate me. She did make the Blog, but let me assure everyone that this is only a minor impostion.

New Years Eve was wonderful. I will tell everyone that we were at Chief Logan State Park. The lodge is fantastic, the food very good, the wine tasty, and the company fantastic.

The weather today is cold. There is snow on the ground (although not a lot). I think I am gonna BBQ some pork ribs for dinner. Sounds good. I will get the slow cooker down in a few minutes. you go....

Late one night I stopped at one of those 24-hour gas station mini-marts to get myself a fresh-brewed cup of coffee. When I picked up the pot, I could not help noticing that the brew was as black as asphalt and just about as thick.

"How old is the coffee you have here?" I asked the woman who was standing behind the store counter.

She shrugged. "I don't know. I've only been working here two weeks."

Well, until the next time...Please remember that I have to pay the bills.
