December 2017

Good-Bye

Goodbye to 2017. You've brought us joy, and sorrow. Our precious granddaughter, Holly, was born in January and in December, we lost our fur baby of 18 years, Melody. Thank you, God, for brining us into 2018 - we couldn't have done it without You.

Fulfilling Our Dreams

It's hard to grab hold of your dreams when you're still clutching your security blanket.

Life is a dream that keeps me from sleeping

Being with Family at Christmastime  

An old friend called and asked me if I could loan him $350 to help with his rent. I told him I'd have to check my account and I'll call u right back.

Before I could check my funds, his brother called and said, "Don’t give him any money because he’s been lying!"

His brother proceeded to tell me that he wants to use that $350 to get his Baby momma out of jail because he wants to be under the same roof with her for the holidays! So I thought about it for a minute, and decided to go ahead and give him $350. 

I called and said, "Come on, I got you."

A couple hours later, I got a call from the county jail, and it was him. He asked me, "Why did you give me counterfeit money?" 

I said, "Well, I heard you were talking about how you wanted to be under the same roof as your baby momma, so there you go.”

"I heard a chef say that you can reduce bitterness by adding fat. My waistline disagrees." 

 

Katie Pavich

"Feminists have to make a choice - they either want to be treated like men as they claim, and then when they are treated like men not complain. Or they need to say that 'we want to be treated differently.' You can't have it both ways."

 

Writer Jim Thompson

"There's only one plot--things are not what they seem."

Conundrums: Here are 6 just in the US

1. America is capitalist and greedy - yet half of the population is subsidized.

2. Half of the population is subsidized - yet they think they are victims.

3. They think they are victims - yet their representatives run the government.

4. Their representatives run the government - yet the poor keep getting poorer.

5. The poor keep getting poorer - yet they have things that people in other countries only dream about.

6. They have things that people in other countries only dream about - yet they want America to be more like those other countries.

 

Walt Disney

"All of our dreams can come true if we have the courage to persue them."

"You can lead a man to congress but you can't make him think."

 

Proverbs 5:15

"Drink water from your own cistern, and running water from your own well."

 

Ray Bradbury

"You can't try to do things; you simply must do them."

Writing
