…”Ole Stink Eye”…

Day Three (3) of this week finds My Bride & I both recoupin’.
 
Monday I was noticin’ both of (yes MY Big) Ears havin’ that sound when they’re retain’ fluid behind the ear drums. Kinda like the sound of water sloshin’ around in yer ole head when ya lean over. So My Bride tells me, through her broken voice as she suddenly has lost hers, that I need to go see the Dr soon. Well Tuesday mornin’ I was there when his office opened. They worked me in quickly. Turns out I have both of my ears with internal infections & a Chest X-ray confirmed a chest full of congestion. So I shucked my drawers & took Two (2) in the ole butt to jump start my healin’. One on each side. Also had Two (2) Rx’s called in to follow up on my healin’. Then off to “The Ham” I go to have lunch with some ole wrench benders I used to work with.
 
To make the day even better, My Bride called me on my way back to “The Big Pell”, in her broken voice to ask me to pick up a Rx for her. She checked with one of the Docs she worked with about her watterin’ eyes!  He said “Yep you got a case of “Ole Stink Eye” (Pink Eye) goin’ there”. So I get home with all our new meds for the day & we start “Playin Doctor”! But not like we used to in the Ole Days. So today we’re on the mend together tryin’ to get over The Humps on “Hump Day” of all days! Ain’t that a Kick In The Butt!
 
I just gotta make sure every time I get near My Bride I wash my hands so I don’t end up with “Ole Stink Eye”! Y’all go enjoy “National Nothing Day”…”Hold’em Hook”!…..BG>

…”just expressin’ my thoughts”…

Today Is The Day! The CFB Playoff Game Is Here. The University Of Alabama -vs- Clemson University! The questions I keep hearin’ are “WHY is it bein’ played at Levi’s Stadium in Santa Clara, California”? & “Why is it on a Monday so late at night”?
 
Apparently “The CFB Board Of Detractors (Iggiots)” missed the possible effects this game could have on the area of Santa Clara, CA. Lets consider the “Carbon Foot Print” that those Ole Left Coast Freaks is always bitchin’ bout!  Can you say “Additional Smog” & “the Residual Effects on The Eco System”? How bout the possibility of additional “Plastic Straws” that might just find their way into the Ocean & Cloggin’ some Ole Turtles Nose? Do I hear “Today’s Special – Turtle Soup”?…Hum-m-m? Oh…I’m sure they have already been calculatin’ all those MILLIONS of $$$$ that they could gain from this event. Maybe they could help some of those “California Homeless” to get off of the Streets, to hide them from the view of the incomin’ Foot Ball Fans. And…possibly they could spend some of that “Wind Fall” to hire additional “Poop Scoopers” to clean up the streets & sidewalks. Nobody likes steppin’ in POO! Oh-h-h & do those BCS Iggiots realize that the “Golden Bear State” is the site of numerous, let me repeat NUMEROUS, {{{{{ EARTH QUAKES ! }}}}} annually? Do those CFB Iggiots realize what they’re exposin’ all those Citizens & Fans in that Stadium to?…Damn!
 
To put it simply, so those CFB Iggiots can understand it, IN ADDITION to all of the “Good, Good, Good Vibrations” from all of the additional Pedestrian, Taxi, Bus, Plane, possibly Train /Rail Traffic, & all of the Jumpin’, Stompin’ of Feet, Loud/Obnoxious Cheerin’, & those BANDS  hammerin’ out all that noise in the Stadium penetratin’ down to those {{{{{ TECTONIC PLATES ! }}}}} just what effect might that pose? Hum-m-m… I wonder what them Rector Scales might record (member down in LS WHO!!! )?
 
Oh…let me mention just one other small issue those CFB Iggiots might have over looked. There will be a Hurd of Pachyderms chasin’ a Pack of Scraggly Lookin’ Cats around on that turf for a “Full 60 Minutes” (member that 1 second?) each tryin’ to possess that inflated Hawg Skin. Now THAT might just add some additional “Good, Good, Good Vibrations”! And where do ya think’em will tramsmit down to? Yep! Right on down to’em ole {{{{{ TECTONIC PLATES ! }}}}}…Hum-m-m…
 
I hope my ramblin’s here ain’t upset them CFB Iggiots too much. I wuz just expressin’ my thoughts. I’ll close now simply sayin’  “I hope’em Ole Pachyderms, of mine, bring home #18”!…{{{{{ ROLL TIDE ROLL ! }}}}}…”Hold’em Hook:!…..BG>

…”I gotta admit…She’s A Gamer”…

Damn!!!…It has been a busy (New Years Eve) day around The Gray house. I must admit my Bride has amazed me. When she gets fueled up on Steroids & Mimosas first thing in the mornin’…well let’s just say all I had to do was stay the hell out of her way & occasionally say “Yes Honey” or “OK Babe”! After she got things squared away with her health Insurance Company this mornin’ she finally got busy around the house. She got all the Christmas stuff taken down boxed up & I put back out in the shelves in the garage. She got the floors all vacuumed up in the Great Room & furniture moved back where it was before the Holidays. OH! Did I mentioned she cooked supper for us both, cleared the table & washed the dishes? Oh yeah…some where along the line she has managed to get a couple of loads of clothes washed & dried, folded & separated for us. I put mine away though. I don’t know why she hasn’t gotten the third load done yet…but I’ll keep on her! I may need to get her another dose of Steriods & Mimosas ready. There are still a few things she can get accomplished with the New Battery Operated Vacuum I got put together & charged up for her. All I’ll need to do is make a list of things to do & give it to her “To Do” while I watch the College Football games on tonight. Well I’ll be damned! She DID get that third (3rd) load of cloths done after all! I gotta admit…”She’s A Gamer”!…”Hold’em Hook”!…..BG>

…”Tis the season”…

Today is Christmas Eve! Are YOU ready? “Christmas is Nigh!”.
 
There are Two (2) Lists…NAUGHTY & NICE! Which one are YOU on? Now…we all like to THINK we’re on the Nice List. But…are YOU? What have YOU done differently this past year that you didn’t do the year before? It’s strange how WE, as our Parents did to us, asked our children & now our grandchildren…Have YOU been Naughty or Nice this year? “Cause Santa Clause is watchin’ YOU”!
 
I would be willin’ to bet that ALL of YOU, at some point growin’ up, have been guilty of doin’ at least one thing, durin’ the previous year that we wouldn’t dare want Santa or Your Parents to find out about. Yeah…you just thought of it, didn’t you? That didn’t take very long. Now YOU have to judge that act. On a scale of 1 (bein’ Naughty) to 10 (the Worst) how would you rate it? Come on…you’re only judgin’ yourself to yourself about somethin’ YOU once did that you really didn’t want certain others to know about. Yet you really enjoyed doin’/gettin’ by with it. Yep…YOU just thought about it again didn’t you!
 
Yep, you can’t fool your own conscience! Remember that cartoon when we were young. There was The Angel sittin’ on one shoulder & The Devil sittin’ on the other. The Little Angel tellin’ you “Don’t do it” & The Little Devil tellin’ you “Go On do it & don’t worry about it…it’ll be fun/excitin’ “. How long did you have that conversation with yourself before you made your decision? Was it fun or excitin’? I’ll bet the corners of your mouth are turnin’ upward slowly right now…”You’re grinnin’ like a possum”, thinkin’ back on it aren’t YOU! So with that bein’ thought about what is the verdict? “NAUGHTY or NICE”!
 
“Tis The Season”! Let us remember “The Reason For The Season”! We Christians Celebrate The Birth Of Our Lord & Savior, Jesus of Nazareth, The Son Of God, Jesus Christ! Merry Christmas to all…”Hold’em Hook”!…..BG>

 

…”NOBODY WANTS TO PROSECUTE ANYBODY”…

I’ve been sittin’ around this mornin’ listenin’ to The News, Sippin’ down a Pot-O-Joe, & feelin’ the effects of some Cold Medicine as I’m battelin’ a “Head Cold”. It’s amazin’ to listen to a Politician, regardless of “The Party” they associate with. Wow I just described them usin’ a PC phrase! Stick a camera in their face & a microphone up to their mouth & there’s no tellin’ what they will spew out. To me it really doesn’t matter. I look at a Career Politician as kind of “A Hybrid”. You know a Cross Breed. I relate them to Cockroachs & Rats. I found some minimal definitions I’ve listed below. Think about it! They all bring nothin’ but disease, sickness, death, & financial ruin to everything/everyone they touch. Well except for themselves. They all seem to find Financial Gold Mines for themselves & most become Millionaires or Multiple Millionaires. They [Politicians, Cockroaches, & Rats] have been around since the beginnin’ of time. The even allowed ROME TO FALL!

Career Politician (Liar, Thief, Crook)

Essentially, a career politician is an individual who has never worked outside the political arena, or who has worked in politics for a period significantly greater than that spent working in an outside field. This term usually has a negative connotation, and therefore is not generally used to describe oneself…wiseGEEK
 
Cockroach (Insect)
Cockroaches are insects of the order Blattodea, which also includes termites. About 30 cockroach species out of 4,600 are associated with human habitats. About four species are well known as pests. The cockroaches are an ancient group, datin’ back at least as far as the Carboniferous period, some 320 million years ago…Wikipedia
 
Rats (Rodent)
 
Creatures of destruction. “Rat-effing” (substituted word) is an American slang term for political sabotage or dirty tricks. It was first brought to public attention by Bob Woodward and Carl Bernstein in their non-fiction book All the President’s Men (1974).

The main things I like about President Trump is #1) he was a Billionaire before he got elected so he’s not searchin’ personal financial gains; #2) he’s not a Career Politician; #3) he has ALL of The Career Politicians in “The Swamp”, in the words from a Elvis song,”All Shook Up”; #4) the Skeletons in the Career Politicians closets are rattlin’ so loud it’s damn near deafening. And yet NO BODY WANTS TO PROSECUTE  ANYBODY because they’re afraid Their Skeletons might get released for us all to see.
 
We know “GITMO” has plenty of space to warehouse them since Obama basically emptied it out.
 
Well enough of my Political Ranting for today…”Hold’em Hook”!…..BG>

 

…”Tis’s The Holidays”…

The Yule Tide Logs are cut & stacked in the wood piles close to the fireplaces across this land. Christmas Trees are either already up, as ours is, or will be purchased soon & that task will be completed. Adults are either thinkin’ of “that Special Gift for that Special Person”. Others have already purchased’em & are trying to get’em wrapped before the nosy folks go to snoopin’ around to find out what they’re gettin’. As for the Children, well they’re addin’ last minute items to their list before they stick’em in the mail marked North Pole! Yeah…even the Older Kids that are convinced Santa doesn’t exist. But they still want to cover all their bases just in-case. As for us Delinquent Adults, well this one anyway, is gettin’ the Bar re-stocked after it got raided over the GOBBLE GOBBLE Holiday get together. But hey…Ti’s The Holidays…..BG>
 
MERRY CHRISTMAS TO Y’ALL…..BG>

 

…” My game is FAR from over”…

Most all of today I’ve found myself down in “The Cave” enjoyin’ some things on TV. Man shows while my Bride is upstairs watchin’ “Chick Flicks”. I can hear the “Cold Beer over in the Mini Frig” wishin’ me a “Happy Birthday”. Before too long I’m sure I’ll enjoy a few of’em, cause I wouldn’t want to hurt their feelin’s, as I reminisce the path in life that has lead me to where I am. I can feel the English Teachers I’ve known thru the years cringin’ over my choice of words knowin’ they tried but I failed to learn properly. Oh well such is life…
Today I have been overwhelmed by “Well Wishers” on line & phone calls. It really makes me feel good knowin’ I hasn’t Pissed Off as many folks as I thought I may have over the past year. Or else they just hide it well. Anyway, thank you ALL for your thoughts (good, bad, sarcastic, or otherwise). They do mean a lot to this NOW Sixty Seven (67) Year Old Man/Boy! Some of you/we have even recalled some past experiences we shared, many of which need to be kept on “The Down Low” & laughin’ the whole time, through the Decades/Ages/Years. Y’all share a part of my heart & mind as they continue to beat & recall life. Some more than others! Yeah, you know who you are…
 
Last night there were Twelve (12) of us, Family & Extended Family, who went out to an early Dinner/Supper. We do it annually to celebrate December Birthdays. There are Four (4) among us born in December. Last night we went to Costa’s Mediterranean on Lorna Rd in Hoover, AL. Thank-goodness “The Protesters” weren’t out. We enjoyed a wonderful meal together, shared stories & “Fairy Lies”, & then exchanged some Birthday Presents. All in just two (2) hours time. My how it flew by…It’s always good to be with Family at such celebrations.
 
I hope for all of you, out there readin’ this, that you too are as happy as I am for where your path has taken YOU. Some I’m sure were rougher that others. I hope My game is FAR from over cause I’m enjoyin’ life, each day differently, what ever it brings. As I say so often “I’m truly a Blessed Man”!…”Hold’em Hook”!…..BG>
