Good morning everyone...Can you believe the weather. SUMMER has arrived (or at least SPRING!!). Todays reflection ...HMMMMM...Guess I am not feeling very reflective today. I will have to say that the wvu mountainqueers (I think I spelled that right) have made an impressive march thru the NCAA. Morganhole will be ablaze with couch fires if the mountainqueers don't choke. Gene Corum would roll over in his grave if he saw what I wrote...and he would probably tell my grandmother. Damn...would I ever be in trouble.
Lately, I have been paying closer attention to the Professional Felons playing for BIG MONEY in what everyone says is professional sports. Why are we (as a society) placing criminals, sexual deviants, and addicts, as role models for our children. Lets band together and STOP allowing the high dollar athletes to be ROLE MODELS. Lets retake our society and cut the salaries paid to these hoodlums. Lets raise the salaries paid to the people that actually contribute to our society. I don't really care who gets the raise because after you remove drug dealers, criminals, and used car salesmen everone left contributes more to society than any pro athlete....wait a minute...if you take out criminals doesn't that double exclude many pro athletes and almost half of the wvu mountaineer football team? and if couch burning is a crime the entire campus could be in trouble.
This past week the overtime ended at work. That was on Thursday. Friday...I worked an hour over because it restarted...but only for a very short time. Stay tuned for details.
I have a question for everyone. Does anyone know how to get a wvu graduate off of the porch? Yes, everyone is correct to say "pay them for the pizza."
I would like to add...please remember to tip. That way we could possibly get them past a point where they would be eligible for the earned income credit on their Federal Taxes.
The tip might also allow the pizza delivery guys spouse to get a new sign....(homeless hungry wvu grad...will burn couches for food).
It is expected that the WV Governors office will be requesting a research grant from the Federal Government. Gov. Manchin (supposedly) will request funding for a research program to see if it is possible to contain the BTU's from the couches burnt in morganhole and recycle them for energy. The contained and recycled energy would be placed back into the power grid and any funds received from the power company would be used as a buy down at the local furniture stores to lower the price of couches. Any knowledge developed from this study will be taught only at wvu in a class open to all current wvu students. Couch Conflagration 401. This will also be a requirement for all football players. There will be a remedial version (using loveseats) called Couch Burning 099.
Here you go, Ginger
For all of us who are married, were married, wish you were married, or wish you weren't married, this is something to smile about the next time you open a bottle of wine.
Sally was driving home from one of her business trips in Northern Arizona when she saw an elderly Navajo woman walking on the side of the road. As the trip was a long and quiet one, she stopped the car and asked the Navajo woman if she would like a ride.
With a silent nod of thanks, the woman got into the car. Resuming the journey, Sally tried in vain to make a bit of small talk with the Navajo woman. The old woman just sat silently, looking intently at everything she saw, studying every little detail, until she noticed a brown bag on the seat next to Sally.
"What's in the bag?" asked the old woman.
Sally looked down at the brown bag and said, "It's a bottle of wine...got it for my husband." The Navajo woman was silent for another moment or two. Then speaking with the quiet wisdom of an elder, she said, "Good trade."
Well, until the next time...please remember that I have to pay the bills.
