Saturday Morning Reflection #65

Good morning everyone...

I hope everyone had a wonderful Turkey Day. Everything in Proctorville went very well.

Is everyone ready to send the MARSHALL UNIVERSITY THUNDERING HERD SENIORS out with a bang? I hope everyone is able to make the game and cheer on a MARSHALL victory...

WE ARE!!!!


The next big holiday to look forward to is Christmas. I am looking forward to this one. I expect that soon the tree will be up....and I think this year there may be more than just a cookie ornament on it...Those of you that know about the cookie ...just smile. Those of you that don't and are interested just call and I will tell you the story.

Even though Christmas is next New Year's plans are being made. This New Years Eve is gonna be a blast. I imagine there will be a story or two involved.

Here you go, Ginger...

The Switchman

A guy named Pete gets a job as a switchman with the railroad, and undergoes weeks of training. The supervisor then takes him into the switch booth to test his readiness. The following exchange takes place:

Supervisor: "Imagine you were sitting here alone and you learned there was a train coming from the North on that track, and another coming from the South on the same track. What would you do?"

Pete: "I'd throw this switch right here and put one train on the other track."

Supervisor: And what if that switch didn't work?"

Pete: "I'd go down to the track and throw that big switchlever there, putting one train on the other track."

Supervisor: "And what if that switchlever didn't work?"

Pete: "Then I'd come back here and call the dispatcher to stop both trains."

Supervisor: "And what if the phone didn't work?"

Pete: "Then I'd go to that gas station across the street and use their phone."

Supervisor: "And what if their phone didn't work?"

Pete: "Then I'd go get Uncle Joe."

Supervisor: "Uncle Joe??? What would he do?"

Pete: "Nothing, but he ain't never seen a train wreck."

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

Saturday Morning Reflection #64

Good morning everyone...

This morning I am up early. Seems as if Jackie and I have a million things to do. We might get some of them done. Lets start this morning by talking about THE MARSHALL UNIVERSITY THUNDERING HERD. How about another win!!

WE ARE!!!!!


The weather justs keeps getting colder. It seems to make me depressed with winter fast approaching. I am ready for some more summer.

Work has been going pretty well. I can't really complain, although I seem to be busier and busier. The job itself is not really bad.

Life appears to be just normal. There really isn't much to cover. I think the best things happen on the weekend and the time I spend at work is simply my punishment for vacation and time off. This weekend...the cats are going to the vet. I am sure they will NOT be pleased with us.

Here you go, Ginger...

A blonde calls Delta Airlines and asks, "Can you tell me how long it'll take to fly from San Francisco to New York City?"

The agent replies, "Just a minute..."

"Thank you," the blonde says, and hangs up.

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

Saturday Morning Reflection #63

Good morning everyone,

The weekend has arrived again. I like it. Today, I hope to watch a MARSHALL UNIVERSITY THUNDERING HERD VICTORY over Memphis.

This morning let us take a minute to observe the tragic loss of November 14, 1970. The plane crash forever changed the landscape of college football and will touch lives for generations to come. Please, no matter which team you are a fan of...take a moment from your life and give a small prayer for those that left us that day and the loved ones that were left behind.

Seems as if vacation planning is always very close to the main topic of conversation at the house. The plans also seem to be coming together. Looks as if there will be plenty of fishing and lots of sight seeing coming up. New years plans have also been decided on...that will be a blast. Might even be a few pictures to post.

Here you go, Ginger...

A member of the Country Club asked the lifeguard how he might go about teaching a young lady to swim.

"It takes considerable time and technique." replied the guard. "First you must take her into the water, then place one arm about her waist, hold her tightly, then take her right arm and raise it very slowly..."

"This is certainly most helpful." said the member. "I know that my kid sister will appreciate it."

"Your sister?" said the lifeguard. "In that case, just push her into the deep end of the pool. She'll learn in a hurry."

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

Saturday Morning Reflection #62

Good morning everyone...

The elections are over. The ads are no longer running. The President got his ass handed to him, and yet, many of the lower end of the ?American? people insist that the results were not a true representation of what America really wants. What part of got your ass kicked do they not understand? I am going to say that if the President does not do what the American people want then he will be a one term President. My only question is....When he is voted out of office will all of the namby pamby socialist muslim whiny cry babies say that is not what the American people really wanted?

Tonight, Jackie amd I are going to the comedy club. I am sure it will be a blast. I might even LET her take me out to dinner. Probably someplace expensive.

Here you go Ginger...

The customer in the Italian restaurant was so pleased that he asked to speak to the chef. The owner proudly led him into the kitchen and introduced him to the chef.

"Your veal parmigiana was superb," the customer said. "I just spent a month in Italy, and yours is better than any I ever had over there."

"Naturally," the chef said. "Over there, they use domestic cheese. Ours is imported."

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