Saturday Morning Reflection #39

Good morning everyone...

Today, I want to say something about Memorial Day. While we are enjoying family and cookouts...lets take a minute to remember how we got the freedom to do it and those that aren't here anymore.

I need to make a correction from last week. The Crappie were cooked on monday evening. They were yummy. Jackie cleaned them on Sunday. Only 12 nice Crappie.

This has been one of those weeks. I was going to have Friday off, but Levi called Thursday evening and asked me to work midnite shift. I did and Jackie came out and fished. She caught a Bass that was about 11 inches long. It was a good night.

The house is filled with 15 y/o girls. Do they always sleep so late on Saturdays?

This item is for everyone that follows the gardening at the house. WE HAVE A TOMATO ON THE PLANTS. I wanted to eat it but Jackie decided that we needed to let it grow bigger than a cashew.

The Beans and Cucumbers are growing like crazy. Its gonna be a good summer.

Here you go Ginger...

A very dirty little boy came in from playing in the yard and asked his mother, "Who am I?"

Ready to play the game she said, "I don't know! Who are you?"

"WOW!" cried the child. "Mrs. Johnson was right! She said I was so dirty, my own mother wouldn't recognize me!"

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

Saturday Morning Reflection #38

Good morning everyone...

Lets start out today talking about the recent amount of airplane crashes. I think I am going to think seriously about driving until all of the "old" planes have crashed.

I suppose another piece of news is the oil moving towards Florida. That is going to devastate the economy there. Guess I won't be fishing there this year.

Speaking of fishing...tonight I work at Beech Fork. I am thinking Crappie for dinner on sunday. Yummy.

This past week at work has been just fine. I can't seem to get caught up, but am I really suppose to? The papers come in and I shuffle them, then send them on to someone else. Seems like such a waste of time, yet they continue to pay me. Fair trade...I reckon.

The goldfish pond in the front yard is looking good. We (Jackie and I) have fixed a new type of waterfall. I suppose it might need some adjustments, but we will get to that. Jackie also planted some flowers around it. Looking good....and the fish seem happier.

Here you go Ginger...
A grandmother overheard her 5-year-old granddaughter playing "wedding." The wedding vows went like this:

"You have the right to remain silent, anything you say may be held against you, you have the right to have an attorney present. You may kiss the bride."

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

Saturday Morning Reflection #37

Good morning everyone...

This morning the house seems filled with the sound of cats rumbling thru the house in a never ending battle. The Tom cat (Alex Cat) is so gentle with the little female (Josie Cat). Josie rips large chunks of hair out of him and he just takes it. I imagine he is just being nice. Someday she might just be in for a rude awakening.

The past week at work was just another week of work. I am very ready to see some vacation time.

Next weekend I get to work at Beech Fork. I am planning on fishing all night. I bet we bring home a cooler full of crappie. Guess what I am having for dinner on Sunday.

Today, there will be a trip to Lowes. Several things will get done this weekend. The project list seems to get longer and longer regardless of how much is finished.

I am now on my second cup of coffee and am still not motivated.

Here you go, Ginger...

A University of Michigan football fan was visiting Morgantown,WV. He decided to go into a bar close to the WVU Mountaineer football stadium. The bar was filled with Moutaineer football fans. When the University of Michigan football fan walked in the bar became very quiet.

The bartender approached the Michigan fan and asked him what he would like to drink and the Michigan fan ordered a beer. The bartender asked the Michigan fan about why he was in Morgantown and the Michigan fan replied "just visiting."

During the conversation the bartender asked the Michigan fan..."What do you do for a living?"

The Michigan fan replied "I am a taxidermist."

The bartender (and an obvious WVU fan) said "What does a taxidermist do?"

The Michigan fan said "I mount small animals."

The bartender turns to the still quiet crowd of Mountaineer fans and says "It's OK guys...He's one of us."

How about those Mountainqueers!!!!!!!

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

Saturday Morning Reflection #36

Good morning everyone....

What an interesting week at work. The company I work for was nice enough to send me to Lexington,KY for a class. I can't say very much positive about the class....but, dinner at bd's Mongolian Grill was fantastic. My dinner companion (Jackie) made it even "more better."

Some interesting news from the work arena....the AFGE is having a National membership drive. Everyone that signs up gets $100 and the recruiter gets $100. I hope to have my best recruiting month ever, and am off to a pretty good start. Seems as if I am working on the vacation fund.

A few weeks ago I got a couple of those topsy-turvy planters. We hung them on the back deck. The plants are growing and it appears as if they are gonna produce very nicely. Stay tuned for updates on the tomatoes.

Speaking of vegetables...Jackie has planted what can only be described as a forest of green onions. WOW! She says she is also gonna put in some green beans and cucumbers. I am not sure if we will need to purchase more acreage or not.

The call from Lake Erie is once again sounding out to me. I am thinking sometime in June we are going to take a weekend and run up. A day of fishing, drunk at the Garden (after a fine meal) and then return on a sunday. Does it even get any better than that? I suppose the only thing I could ask for would be if the Garden was having a 50% off bottles of wine sale...for this reference please find and read the time Adam and I went up. Took me a week to sober up. We never did manage to steal a beer glass...

I have decided that tonight I will have to have wine with dinner because this morning I am going to fix bacon and eggs. Gotta keep my cholesterol in check.

Here you go, Ginger...

Two cannibals are eating a clown. One says to the other: "Does this taste funny to you?"

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

Saturday Morning Reflection #35

Good morning everyone...

Lets start todays reflection thinking about a new discovery I made on thursday...When you have a back spasm that is so painful you start to just curl up and are useless...there is a cure. I have discovered that Dilaudid(4mg) is a wonder drug. Thank you Dr. Rajan.

The rest of my week has been just fine. Everything just flowing along. Work is just work. Home life is great. The chores are getting done...and fishing weather is here.One of my friends stopped by and we discussed going up to the Hughes river area to do a little trout fishing. Souds like a good time to me.

Today...(NO LAUGHING) I am getting fitted for a TUX. My friend is getting married (in a couple months) and I will be there with him. I know the happy couple will be good for each other. I also have decided not to pull the chilicothe trick on him. The repercussions could be devastating.

Last weekends Sangria get together did not goes as planned but I believe everyone that set out to catch a buzz did. We all had a great time. I believe grill and chill with some Perch is next. Gonna be a blast.

Here you go, Ginger...

A man and his wife were lying in bed the other night when he noticed she had bought a new book entitled, "What 20 Million American Women Want."

He grabbed the book out of her hands and started thumbing through the pages.

His wife was a little annoyed. "Hey, what do you think you're doing?"

He calmly replied, "I just wanted to see if they spelled my name right."

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