I’m Not Dead Yet

Hey ya’ll. . . .

  Sorry I have been a little busy. I just got a comment on one of my old posts from Sandra. Something to the effect of  ” what the hell! Are you ever going to write again?”  That might have been two responses lumped together. Hard to say.  Thought it might be about time I got off my ass and did a little writing. Almost done with school for the sememster, (only one more final to go! WHOOHOO!) and I find myself with a little bit of time.

I took a new job working in an intense therapuetic group home. It’s turned out to be rather challenging. I bet I have learned as much, if not more, than what I have taught my boys. Or tried to teach at any rate. Damn if those kids don’t make me laugh! Not intentionally of course. After my first week in the job, I went home and called my mom, told her I loved her and that I was SO VERY SORRY!

Funny how life turns out sometimes.

Maybe I need to head over to some other people’s sites and see what they have been up to.

I got this in my email this morning. It’s not the first time I have gotten it.  Every time I read it, though, I think, “HELL YA!”  Bush needs to track the author of this little speech down and HIRE him/her.  If you have read it before, well tough shit pedro. Give it another read. It’s worth it.

My Fellow Americans: As you all know, the defeat of Iraq regime has

> Since congress does not want to spend any more money on this war,
> our mission in Iraq is complete.
> This morning I gave the order for a complete removal of all
> American forces from Iraq . This action will be complete within 30
> days. It is now time to begin the reckoning.
> Before me, I have two lists. One list contains the names of
> countries which have stood by our side during the Iraq conflict.
> This list is short. The United Kingdom, Spain, Bulgaria, Australia,
> and Poland are some of the countries listed there.
> The other list contains everyone not on the first list. Most of the
> world’s nations are on that list. My press secretary will be

> Let me start by saying that effective immediately, foreign aid to

> the costs of the Iraqi war.
> The American people are no longer going to pour money into third

> Need help with a famine? Wrestling with an epidemic? Call France .
> In the future, together with Congress, I will work to redirect this

> Thirsting for a gutsy country to terrorize? Try France, or maybe China.
> I am ordering the immediate severing of diplomatic relations with

> I have instructed the Mayor of New York City to begin towing the

> stripped, shredded, and crushed. I don’t care about whatever treaty

> A special note to our neighbors. Canada is on List 2. Since we are

> Mexico is also on List 2. President Fox and his entire corrupt

> Nearly a century of trying to help folks live a decent life around

   Little  Johnny attended a horse auction with his
   father. He watched as his
   father  moved from horse to horse, running his hands
   up and down the horse’s
   legs  and rump, and chest.
   After  a few minutes, Johnny asked, “Dad, why are you doing
   His  father replied, “Because when I’m  buying
   horses, I have to make sure
   that they are healthy and in good shape before I
   buy. Johnny, looking  worried, said,

“Dad, I think the UPS guy wants to buy  Mom.”

It is time to change from REDNECK humor to TRUE AMERICAN Humor!
Only I don’t see it as Humor, but the correct way to

If you feel the same, pass this on to your True American friends.
Ya’ll know who ya’ are…

You might be a TRUE AMERICAN if:
It never occurred to you to be offended by the phrase,
“One nation, under God.”

You might be a TRUE AMERICAN if:

You’ve never protested about seeing the 10 Commandments
posted in public

You might be a TRUE AMERICAN if:
You still say “Christmas” instead of “Winter Festival.”

You might be a TRUE AMERICAN if:
You bow your head when someone prays.

You might be a TRUE AMERICAN if:
You stand and place your hand over your heart when
they play the National Anthem.

You might be a TRUE AMERICAN if:
You treat all Veterans with great respect, and always have.

You might be a TRUE AMERICAN if:
You’ve never burned an American flag.

You might be a TRUE AMERICAN if:
You know what you believe and you aren’t afraid to say so,
no matter who is listening.

You might be a TRUE AMERICAN if:
You respect your elders and expect your kids to do the same.

You might be a TRUE AMERICAN if:
You’d give your last dollar to a friend.

 No shit, folks, we have at least three of these trucks on the place, and never even had a close call.  We are only a couple of miles from the prison ranch, too. Go figure


#10   They have about 20 miles before they overheat, breakdown or run out of gas

#9   Only the owner knows how to operate the door to get in or out.

#8   It is difficult to drive fast with all the fence tools, grease rags, ropes, chains, syringes, buckets, boots and loose papers in the cab.

#7     It takes too long to start, and the smoke coming up through the rusted-out floorboard clouds your vision.

#6     The Border Collie on the toolbox looks mean.

#5     They’re too easy to spot. The description might go something like this:

The driver’s side door is red, the passenger side door is green, the right front fender is yellow, etc.

#4     The large round bale in the back makes it hard to see if you’re being chased. You could use the mirrors if they weren’t cracked and covered with duct tape.

#3     Top speed is approximately 45 mph.

#2     Who wants to steal a truck that needs a year’s worth of maintenance, u-joints, $3,000 in body work, tail-lights and windshield?

#1     It is hard to commit a crime with everyone waving at you.
