…”Timin’ is everything”…

Thank God the Senate Race here in Alabama is over. MY Party, the Republican Party, didn’t win. So be it! That’s a big disappointment for me. I wasn’t especially proud of the Republican candidate, a former Judge & The Chief Justice for The Alabama State Supreme Court. But he was the Party Candidate. He had a lot of Political Baggage in his past. He was twice removed from “The Bench” durin’ the “Obama years” for defyin’ (Democratically Appointed) Federal Judges on issues not yet ruled on by The US Supreme Court! But the biggest issue was that 4 weeks prior to the “Special Election” all of sudden women from his past, I believe 4 or 5 of’em, it was hard to keep up with “the count & the amount”, some from as many as 40 years ago just appeared with rumored unwanted sexual touchin’s & such. Nothin’ was ever proven! 40 years ago or recently? The accusations were enough to get press, Bad Press. Oddly enough there had NEVER been charges brought up on him in his past. And this man had been thru many political races & won most of’em. That’s rather odd I think. Now, could it have been attributed to all of the “Out-of-State-Money” showing up to fund the opponent, huntin’ any dirt they could find/buy on the Republican? It raises too many questions. The DemocRAT candidate was a former Federal Prosecutor runnin’ on his past history, which isn’t especially impressive (to me) either. But bein’ the DemocRAT candidate the DNC was really funnelin’/spendin’ money, by the MILLIONS, tryin’ to snatch a Senate Seat from Alabama. As Alabama is prominently a Republican State. Several of the accusations brought froward were quickly shot down & the people that brought them forward just seemed to vanish as quickly as they appeared. Hum-m-m-m? The main one finally admitted she ALTERED some “Evidence” she produced, on her own, that was 1st reported to have been written in an old year book, that her “Female Shyster” wouldn’t let anyone see, by the Republican candidate. The DemocRAT won in the end. “Timin’ is everything” I guess. I’ll close by simply sayin’ “God Bless America”! Cause we’re goin’ to need it…”Hold’em Hook”!…..BG>

…”A date that will live in infamy”…

December 7, 1941 – “A date that will live in infamy”!

Seventy-Six (76) years ago we were Attacked @ “Pearl Harbor” by the “Japanese Empire”. Thankfully we do not speak Japanese here today. If you are fortunate enough to cross paths, on this day especially, with a Veteran of “The Attack on Pearl Harbor” {{{{{ Please }}}}} go out of your way to “Thank Them For Their Service”. We are slowly losing these Heroes. The day will come when when you can’t. Don’t take a knee. Stand tall, show Pride for what they did for YOU, Salute them or look them in the eyes while you shake their hand & simply say “Thank You For Your Service”. Because of them we still, well most of us, speak English in this country…”Hold’em Hook”!…..BG>

…”If Vulcan is holdin’ his nose”…

Well there were no cloths bein’ washed in “The Brook” (The City of  Mt. Brook, AL) today. Oh, and that Mornin’ (Joe) Coffee probably was a little darker than normal & had quite a bite to it, didn’t it! Ahh-hahahaha…It appears as though one of two (2) things has happened there & I’m still waitin’ on the nightly NEWS to tell the truth here. Accordin’ to the “Teasers on the NEWS today” they kept reportin’ that many of “The Brook” residents (Sparties & Brookies) have been reportin’ that “Their Water is Brown”! Could that be considered “A Racial Slur”? Say it ain’t so! “Sparties & Brookies” don’t bath in Brown Water! Careful now (Pew!)…Hope that don’t last long! Have those “Sparties & Brookies” not been payin’ their Water Bills or what? Hum-m-m…According to The Birmingham Water Works Board (BWWB) it may have been due to “some repair issues” in the area and was due to Back-Wash in some Old Pipes. But as of earlier in the day NO fault was accepted on the BWWB’s behalf. If that is so, well, just let it flush it’s self out. Riiiight! My question here is WHO is going to be paying for all that Lost/Wasted water bein’ flushed thru? I’m here to tell you right now! The BWWB will NOT be issuin’ any Credits or Refunds. They only take money in over there. They don’t give it out! If your meter turns – then YOU PAY! I’ll bet “The PIG” had one hell of a run on “Body Wipes” today. When y’all wake up tomorrow mornin’ look up to “Red Mountain”. If Vulcan is holdin’ his nose then you’ll know the problem ain’t fixed yet. Hit yourself with another Body Wipe or two…”Hold’em Hook”!…..BG>

…”to Protect the Freedoms”…

As I sit here this mornin’, as the aroma of my Mug-O-Joe wafts around me, I find myself reminiscing about yesterday. Rocky Ridge Elementary School (in Hoover, AL) held their “2017 Veteran’s Day Program” in advance of Veterans Day, on November 11, 2017. It was such a movin’ event put on by The Fourth (4th) Grade Class & Volunteer Teacher Staff. The Guest Speaker was Retired Command Sergeant Major Jerry McClain. And what an impact he had on the young students, & even some of us older folks, there. He was impressive! I was just one (1) of many Veterans in attendance there. Not only was I invited by my two Granddaughters, 1st & 3rd graders who attend school there, but they sat beside me durin’ the entire program. There were several Patriotic  Songs preformed by the members of the 4th Grade. There was one young man who performed two (2) Solos on his Violin. There were also a couple of solo songs, well performed, by other students. I was both impressed & touched. Several times durin’ the program I was touched to the point of tears. Those of you that know me know that I get emotional. My 1st Grader caught me @ one of those times & asked “are you OK Papa”? At that point it just got worse, I couldn’t swallow, but forced out a “Yes Ma’am” response to her. She put her arms around me, hugged me, said “thank you for your service Papa”!. & followed by an “I love YOU Papa”. Again, I couldn’t swallow, tears filled my eyes & trickled down my cheeks. I just hugged back & kissed her gently on top of her head, & wiped my tears. Near the end there was a Slide Show showin’ members of the Students & Staffs families who have Served in our Five (5) Military Branches. When the slides of my Granddaughters relatives, who had served (their Great Grandfathers & Me), came up I went through the same scenario with my 3rd grader as I had with my 1st grader. I was an emotional wreck! But, I wouldn’t trade it for anything! Again, it was a wonderful presentation by the 4th Graders & School Staff. But most importantly, & I think I can say this for all of The Veterans in attendance there, it is a good thing that these young people are bein’ taught what the meanin’ of Freedom is, the toll it has taken & continues to take to Protect the Freedoms they/we have & live under. God Bless America. {{{{{ SALUTE ! }}}}}…”Hold’em Hook”…..BG>

…” I will NEVER NEVER”…

The Ghosts & Goblins shadows are still in sight! The Wild Turkey is still runnin’ loose in the Woods or has already been put in a Bottle! And there are those out there already tryin’ to force “X” on us & want us to celebrate it. What or Who is “X”? In my family we have always looked forward to Thanksgiving. Not only for the upcomin’ wonderful Thanksgiving Meal, Family & Friends gatherin’ in our home, a Wonderful Thanksgivin’ Meal, & the Thanksgiving Parade on TV. Because we all know, by the reactions of the little children, that Santa Claus is always @ the end of that Goofy Parade. And we all know once that Friendly/Fat/Lovable Character, all adorned in his Red & White outfit,  is either drug down the street in a “Rusty Ole Sled by Eight (8) Mangy Deer” or Riddin’ on a Float with Wavin’ Elfs, & the tossin’ of Candy Canes is completed can the Football Games finally begin! The commercial world created the “X” Day. They were/are so busy to get out ahead of the “Great Pumpkin” & the “Thanksgivin’ Turkey” that they didn’t even create their own Character. They tried to down-play the “Reason For The Season” by gettin’ You, The Consumer (& mostly Women), to rush out & buy their over produced, over priced products, mostly manufactured over seas (to lower standards & quality) so they can make their year end sales look better. Why do you think they reduce their prices at the END of the year? Can you say “Old Inventory”! Why do you think they call it “Black Friday”. Because “EVIL has always be shrouded in BLACK”! How many of you paid too much for those same, or similar, products earlier in the year? {{{{{ SUCKER ! }}}}}…As for My Family & Me we have & always will accept “Christ” into our home & Celebrate His Birth as “The Reason For The Season”. Not “X”! “X-Mas” has NO PLACE in My Home or Life. I will greet you durin’ this festive season with “Merry Christmas & Happy Holidays” or “Merry Christmas & Happy New Year”. I hope you will respond to me in a similar manner. But I will NEVER NEVER wish you or greet you with Merry X-Mas!…”Hold.em Hook”!…..BG>The Holy Bible

…”Funny isn’t it!”…

Catchin’ up on the News this mornin’ I just had to sit here & both laugh & be amazed. For some strange reason I see humor in the Negatives bein’ reported. Take for instance…

The DemocRATS are abandoning “Ole Harvey” Weinstein like RATS abandon a SINKING SHIP! How long can they tread water? I wonder who will be their next victim? You know, the one that comes floatin’ by, they climb aboard, & they sink their fangs & claws into. To replace “Ole Harvey” that is. Trust me, they’re already on the hunt for their next victim, DONOR! It’s just in their nature. They, The DemocRATS & Hollywood Elites, all knew what “Ole Harvey” was doin’. They just didn’t care! In their worlds it’s just standard operating procedure (SOP). As long as the Money & Favors flowed in their direction they all just ignored it. Oh, but now that “he settled sexual harassment lawsuits with at least eight women” (via the NYT) they, The DemocRATS & Hollywood Elites, just can’t seem to “Sling the $#!+” off of their hands fast enough. I wonder if Hillary will give back the, reportedly, $45,000.00 “Ole Harvey” donated to her “Losin’ Presidential Campaign”? Funny isn’t it!…..BG>

…”free speech and expression”…

I received this in an email today from a friend. I thought it was worth mentionin’. So, my question to Mr. Roger “Do Nothin’ ” Goodell is “how do YOU decide where to draw the line on what IS or IS NOT (approved) free speech and expression for The NFL? Many would really like to know:

 

Here are some fun facts about the hypocrites over at the NFL..

In 2012 the NFL had an issue with Tim Tebow kneeling for each game to pray, they also had an issue with Tebow wearing John 3:16 as part of his blackout to avoid glare and made him take it off.

In 2013 the NFL fined Brandon Marshall for wearing green cleats to raise awareness for people with mental health disorders.

In 2014 Robert Griffin III (RG3) entered a post-game press conference wearing a shirt that said “Know Jesus Know Peace” but was forced to turn it inside out by an NFL uniform inspector before speaking at the podium.

In 2015 DeAngelo Williams was fined for wearing “Find the Cure” eye black for breast cancer awareness.

In 2015 William Gay was fined for wearing purple cleats to raise awareness for domestic violence. (not that the NFL has a domestic violence problem…)

In 2016 the NFL prevented the Dallas Cowboys from wearing a decal on their helmet in honor of 5 Dallas Police officers killed in the line of duty.

In 2016 the NFL threatened to fine players who wanted to wear cleats to commemorate the 15th anniversary of 9/11.

So tell me again how the NFL supports free speech and expression.

 

But it is approved to Protest the “Presenting Of The Colors/The US Flag & The Playing Of Our National Anthem! …”Hold’em Hook”!…..BG>
