Saturday Morning Reflection #52

Good morning everyone...

What a week this has been...filled with work. I have looked forward to the weekend and fully intend to enjoy every minute of it. Friday night was good. The company was great, the glass(es) of wine smooth and HS football not so bad. I wonder what adventures today will bring.

The windows in the house have been open for the past few days. I love this weather. I am not looking forward to a return to the HOT temperatures. I might try to get in a little fishing today before it gets too hot and the AC has to come back on. I think Jackie has some jobs planned for around the house and I gotta get them done. We all know how quickly I get on the home improvement stuff...except for plumbing. Even Travis knows I can't plumb.

Alex Cat and Josie Cat are playing chase tru the house. If I had that much energy I would burst...and they haven't even had any coffee.

Here you go, Ginger...

Walking up to a department store's fabric counter, a pretty girl asked, "I want to buy this material for a new dress. How much does it cost?"

"Only one kiss per yard," replied the smirking male clerk.

"That's fine," replied the girl. "I'll take ten yards."

With expectation and anticipation written all over his face, the clerk quickly measured out and wrapped the cloth, then teasingly held it out.

The girl snapped up the package and pointed to a little old man standing beside her. "Grandpa will pay the bill," she smiled.

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

Saturday Morning Reflection #51

Good morning everyone...

It is a BEAUTIFUL Saturday morning. The weather is fantastic this morning. The cats are somewhat behaving themselves, and my coffee drinking companion is fantastic. Not really sure that life gets any better than this.

I hope that all went well at Adams house last night. Sorry I couldn't make it. I believe that there is a pitcher of Sangria waiting on us very soon.

Work has been very busy. Sometimes I think I have more customers than one person can handle.

September is rapidly coming.Those of you that know me realize that september requires a trip to Lake Erie. I am thinking Jumbo Perch out of vermillion. It will be a good time. Anybody that wants to go should let me know. The more the merrier (and maybe drunker).

Here you go, Ginger..

My wife doesn't complain often, but once she was having a old-fashioned "heart-to-heart" with me and said, "Hon, you never listen to me. Every time I try to talk to you, you get this far-away look in your eyes after only a few seconds. Please promise me you'll try to work on that."

The last thing I remember was replying, "I'm sorry, what was that you were saying?"

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

Saturday Morning Reflection #50

Good morning everyone...

Lets start this morning with an update...YES. Jackie survived and is alive and well. She slept...A BUNCH...but is up and after it this morning. I think she is gonna mow the yard today.

It is the weekend and I am looking forward to enjoying weekend stuff. In this particular case that means doing nothing. I seem to have been struck by a large case of the LAZY'S.

Alex Cat has finally started to become one of the family. He has been so friendly (with Jackie) and has even gotten up in the chair, beside of me, to be petted. Josie Cat is so jealous. There have been some cat fights.

Another note for those of you that might be interested. Kenny G. is still kicking. He was at the house for dinner this week. Served him "vacation fish." He keeps telling me to say hi to all of those that matter.

Here you go, Ginger...

Growing up as a kid, I learned all about capitalism through the board game Monopoly. I mean, what better way to teach a young mind the way our economy functions.

I loved this game and still do. Only now, as an adult I have some questions that remain unanswered.

For instance, if I have all this money and own all this real estate...why am I still driving around in a thimble?

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

Saturday Morning Reflection #49

Good Morning everyone...

Once again Saturday is upon us. We have worked all week and need a day to catch up on the chores around the house and to spend some time resting, so that we can return to work and have another productive week earning our pay. Screw it...I think I will just sit around and drink beer.

The past work week has been very busy. Nothing of any importance, nothing earth shattering, or even life changing. Mundane and mediocre. (yawn). I hope next week is more lively.

Home life is filled with the normal trials and tribulations. Chores to be done and dinner to be fixed. I will have to say I really like the company at home. Jackie and the Cats. Kinda sounds like an old Elton John song....

This is really strange...for those of you that know me...I really don't have anything to say.

Here you go, Ginger...

A young boy enters a barber shop and the barber whispers to his customer, "This is the dumbest kid in the world. Watch while I prove it to you."

The barber puts a dollar bill in one hand and two quarters in the other, then calls the boy over and asks, "Which do you want, son?" The boy takes the quarters and leaves.

"What did I tell you?" said the barber. "That kid never learns!"

Later, when the customer leaves, he sees the same young boy coming out of the ice cream store. "Hey, son! May I ask you a question? Why did you take the quarters instead of the dollar bill?"

The boy licked his cone and replied, "Because the day I take the dollar, the game's over!"

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