Daddy’s Playground

 

Daddy’s Playground


An old green colored shed tops a makeshift

Work area that once was a housing unit

For my brothers’ cage of birds, snakes and such.

Now it is filled with various sized bolts;

Some of which even the Same size, may be

Totally difference for the need…

The aged fingers reach for yet another.

The area is covered with wheels, handles and motors.

The smell of gas and oil is sometimes nauseating.

But from sun-up to sun-down…with a few short breaks in between:

We can always find

Daddy

Tinkering with lawnmowers. . . edgers:

Sharpening blades

Unclogging fuel lines

Replacing wheels

All of which have yet a few good blades to cut.

The fingers work tediously long hours

While sitting on a stool

Comprised of an old bucket with a board on top

Finished product…

A labor of love and frustration thrown in;

Here and there…

They’re wheeled out to the road, curbside;

With a sign – for sale –

And the waiting begins.

But the aged fingers reach for yet another to

Conquer – with his loyal companion at his feet

His Dog…Sable…

Daddy begins the task that will yet continue

To fulfill his hours under the old green colored

Shed; searching fingers reaching to find the

Right tools and bolts to

Sharpen blades

Unclog fuel lines

Replace wheels

Sitting on the short stool…the bucket and board.

Until the setting sun brings a dinner call

From Mother:

We know where we can find Daddy

In his playground –

With wheels and blades of steel.

HAPPINESS IS

Birthdays & Being Thankful!

February 7, 2014
** The Day **
I Turned Another Year Older

While in the car headed out to meet with two friends for lunch at The Corner Bistro. It was a GREAT lunch, with the Friends who were also with me when the Over the HILL 40th Birthday rolled around .. 22 years ago.  { February 7th  }

Late Yesterday (Thursday) I received a birthday card from my cousin in NC… a Phone call last night from TWO Aunts .. who then both sang “Happy Birthday” to me …

Then an e-mail this morning {Friday} from a (special) cousin in NC who said something like this “that on this day God had created a beautiful baby . and to enjoy my day” (something like that) {so I think I did OK}.. and then the lunch … arrive home…

Came home, (after checking in on Mom and Dad) & another phone call from my aunt with wishes again…. went back to Mom & Dad’s … and cake … (daddy now sleeping) SO mom and I watched the opening of the Sochi 2014 Olympics … and that was wonderful to share with my mother. (the cake was good too) …

A couple more ‘messages’ from two cousins….

So turning my age – is not bad …

I look forward to what the year has in store for me, & when things get tough as they sometimes do, I’ll have friends who will listen, give support, give hope, share LOVE…

Today – My Birthday

Today

Two Girl Friends
We spent the lunch time this afternoon
22 years later from my  previous post.  { February 7th  }
when we were a bit younger….

February 7th

February 7th

Twenty-Two Years ago .. I was celebrating my 40th Birthday with friends…. and today, I will celebrate with two of those friends with an afternoon lunch.

Life has had its ups and downs, but that is what happens when life marches
on no matter what occurs and how hard we try and stop it or even wish the wheels could turn back.

But life, it is what we make it. I’ve done OK … not the best at times, but I’m proud of who I am as a person. And with that, that is the most important gift I can give myself… not just today, but any given day.

Be proud, Walk tall, Cry when needed, Laugh as often as you can, Love with your heart, Pray, Share the Joys and Sorrows…. GROW within ones self, so others can also grow with you.

Thankful. That I have this LIFE.

Memory Lane

Memory Lane

 

Memories we will make

of moments we share

of happy times

and sorrow shared.

 

Memory Lane

We all have one:

Take change of this life

and make it a good one.

 

With lots to share

of love we hold…

sorrow we bare…

while growing old.

These memories we build

and share you see…

BUILD that love

for all to see.

 

They’ll think back;

long after we’re gone,

of the good times we had,

not in sorrow…

but SONG!

 

Take hold of this thought:

Down Memory Lane -­

Share all you can to help

someone else;

Build a Memory Lane.

Today is World AIDS Day

Today is World AIDS Day

God’s Sense of Humor

 

While creating wives, God promised men that good

and obedient wives would be found in all corners of

the world.

 

And then He made the earth round.

 

Some things just don’t need….

Why we are Proud

From the Darkness of the Day

 

Memories will continue but as the World continues

to grow with each passing year WE continue

to NEVER Forget the events of that Day

The DEATH of those whose lives were cut too short.

This year the Tenth YEAR
We as a Poeple of the Worlds
 World of Nations who were stunned that day
brought the darkness into the light
turning the Darkest Day on American Soil
into the Bright Hope of the future that lies ahead.
 
From this day forward it is my hope that as we continue to
Remember from Year to Year
as we’ve stated
We Will Never Forget
^*^
To now remember not those lives lost
but to turn and remember the lives that
WERE SAVED!
There is WHITE Hope
as the White Dove with the sign of peace
to continue with the WHITE to overtake the darkness
that shattered our lives and our world that day
September 11, 2001
 
Today I wore my White Shirt as the
symbol I created (WhiteShirts) to bring the
Life back into the hearts and mind of those who
we not only lost as a person
but a person who we shared
laughter, love, joy, fear, death, birth, work, freedom, play,
together as one unit or a family of freinds and family
We all lost whether we were connected or not
Because of that day we are now forever connected in the Darkness
that we need to turn to the light of white beauty day
Would the loved ones really want us to stop and dwell on the darkness
or build futures brighter than they could have imagined
I hope tht those who lost loved ones know just how
much the World as a Whole Unit
felt your pain that day and the days that would come
May all those who have gone continue to rest in peace
but may you savor the joys of life share with them in your hearts
 
 
 
This is my last 10 year remberance wearing the
WHITE SHIRT for all of your loved ones.

(yes it is White!)

^*^ From this Day ^*^

This is A Way to Remember September 11th – 10 Years

 

 

September 11, 2011 – When America and the American way was Attacked!

The Twin Towers, The Field, The Pentagon

With the Memorial years in the making – lets show our way of celebrating their lives for us. 

What would be nice to do for the upcoming (just around the corner) for the Ten (10) Years that changed all of our lives in some way or another …. It is something that I will never forget … and I know that there are so many more that will not forget either.  AND that does not include any of the family members and their friends of those lost. 

That was a Day of BLACK! September 11, 2001

I would like to start something … to show that all of those within the Social Media and beyond come together to let the families know we will NEVER Forget.

Everyone has a T- shirt or Shirt — THAT is WHITE!

Let’s turn the Day of BLACK into the DAY OF WHITE….

EVERYONE wear WHITE SHIRTS on September 11, 2011 …. the TEN Years We Have Not Forgotten & Will Never Forget!

Wear them the days of
September 9th … 10th & 11th …

Friday is a WORK DAY – so maybe the OFFICE you work will
do something!

Saturday is usually a FUN DAY – Family & Friends Plans!

Sunday is the Day it turned BLACK and WE WILL turn it WHITE!


Friday – Saturday – Sunday the days to start healing

Can we start this going around and see where it ends.

I will never see the actual memorial but it would be wonderful to see thos white shirts

showing the WORLD we did NOT Forget … Remember there were not just Americans

who were lost that day … It was a day that the AMERICAN peopel came together

and we can do this again in a positive way!

Wear White to show the LOVE we have & the LOVE we all lost that Day!

Celebrity Duck Faces

While these are a ‘new’ thing to me – I guess I’ve seen them & NOT know what they were – Until now…….Who Knew?  There are certainly some that do it ‘OK’ while others should NEVER do it again.  Some might need a little practice or just give up …. some seem to be natural at it!

What is a DUCK FACE?

Well this is how the Celebrities say it’s done……

How do you do the celebrity duck face? It’s a little pucker, a little pout and a whole lot of attitude.

 This is one of my favorites listed …and you too will probably agree.

dead in mass shooting outside casino

 

One of British Columbia’s most notorious gangsters is dead after he was shot during a brazen daylight attack outside a casino.

Jonathan Bacon and five other victims were rushed to Kelowna General Hospital around 3 p.m. Sunday after at least one gunman opened fire on a vehicle in the parking lot of the Delta Grand Hotel in Kelowna, B.C.

Mother bear kills cub and then itself

The Chinese media has reported on an extraordinary account of a mother bear saving her cub from a life of torture by strangling it and then killing itself.

The bears were kept in a farm located in a remote area in the North-West of China. The bears on the farm had their gall bladders milked daily for ‘bear bile,’ which is used as a remedy in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM).

It was reported that the bears are kept in tiny cages known as ‘crush cages’, as the bears have no room to manoeuvre and are literally crushed.

The bile is harvested by making a permanent hole or fistula in the bears’ abdomen and gall bladder.

As the hole is never closed, the animals are suspect to various infections and diseases including tumours, cancers and death from peritonitis.

The bears are fitted with an iron vest, as they often try to kill themselves by hitting their stomach as they are unable to bear the pain.

A person who was on the farm in place of a friend witnessed the procedures and told Reminbao.com that they were inhumane.

The witness also claimed that a mother bear broke out its cage when it heard its cub howl in fear before a worker punctured its stomach to milk the bile.

The workers ran away in fear when they saw the mother bear rushing to its cub’s side.

Unable to free the cub from its restraints, the mother hugged the cub and eventually strangled it.

It then dropped the cub and ran head-first into a wall, killing itself.

Many TCM practitioners have denounced the use of bear bile in their treatment as there are cheaper herbs and synthetics that can be used in its place.

Bear bile is traditionally used to remove ‘heat’ from the body as well as treat high fever, liver ailments and sore eyes.

Materialistic Lawyer

Lexus GS 300
Image via Wikipedia
A very successful attorney parked his brand new Lexus in front of his office, ready to show it off to his colleagues. As he was getting out, a truck came along too closely and completely tore off the driver’s door.

Fortunately, a cop in a police car was close enough to see the accident and pulled up behind the Lexus with his lights flashing.

Before the cop had a chance to ask any questions, the attorney started screaming hysterically about how his Lexus, which he had just purchased the day before, was completely ruined and would never be the same, no matter how any car body shop tried to make it new again.

After the lawyer finally wound down from his rant, the cop shook his head in disbelief. “I can’t believe how materialistic you lawyers are,” he said. “You are so focused on your possessions that you neglect the most import ant things in life.”

“How can you say such a thing?” asked the lawyer.

The cop replied, “Don’t you even realize that your left arm is missing? It was severed when the truck hit you!”

“OH, MY GOD!!!” screamed the lawyer.

The World’s Most Outrageous Yachts

Now this is JUST  – ONE – that was shown of 12….

Octopus - One of Twelve Yachts

Octopus

 

Microsoft-cofounder Paul Allen’s 414-foot, blue-and-white megayacht, built for $200 million (and with an estimated annual operating budget of $20 million), is seriously tricked out. The behemoth is equipped with a recording studio, jet-ski dock, full-size basketball court, seven boats, a 63-foot tender, room for a crew of 60, two helipads (each with its own helicopter), and two submarines—one remote-control operated for studying the ocean’s floor, the other with the capacity to sleep eight guests and spend up to two weeks underwater.

THE GERMAN ARTISTS ARE AT IT AGAIN…

 

THE GERMAN ARTISTS ARE AT IT AGAIN
Here are 7 pictures of European trucks whose trailers are decorated to look like the sides are missing and the products they are hauling are painted on the sides and back. The first one is of a bottle of beer and looks so real, like it is coming out the side of the trailer..

The second is of canvas tote bag.

The third is of Pepsi cases and they are all stacked on the ceiling, and the bottom of the trailer is empty.

The fourth is of another truck with the windshield facing the back and there has been a driver painted in the driver’s seat looking back over his shoulder to appear like he is driving backwards. (Now this one is just plain scary, even when the German reads ‘On the wrong way?’)

The fifth one is of an aquarium with fish swimming in it.


The sixth one is of a bookshelf with books lined up in it and a post-it-note with an advertisement on it, probably for the company that sells the books.


The last one is for Pringles-Hot & Spicy. The ‘inside’ of the trailer has the appearance of having been through a fire.

Inner Peace

 

If you can start the day without caffeine,

If you can always be cheerful, ignoring aches and pains,

If you can resist complaining and boring people

with your troubles,

If you can eat the same food everyday and be grateful for it,

If you can understand when your loved ones are too busy to

give you any time,

If you can take criticism and blame without resentment,

If you can conquer tension without medical help,

If you can relax without alcohol,

If you can sleep without the aid of drugs,

 

…Then You Are Probably………

Annual Physical

 
 
 
 

After the eighty-three-year-old lady finished her annual physical
examination, the doctor said,

“You are in fine shape for your age, Mrs. Mallory, but tell me, do you
still have intercourse?”

“Just a minute, I’ll have to ask my husband,” she said..

She stepped out into the crowded reception room and yelled out loud:

“Henry, do we still have intercourse?” And there was a hush!

You could hear a pin drop.

Henry answered impatiently, “If I told you once, Irma, I told

you a hundred times… What we have is…….

IF by chance you have been following me on Twitter – I made a booboo! –

They – Twitter – should learn something from WordPress.  Because I by mistake deactivated my Twitter account!  After doing this I would have thought that as popular as they are & certainly I’ve had the ‘bug bite’ …they would verify that it was ME who had deleted the account – and NOT a spammer as does WordPress!  But NO!

All my followers – All those who I had come to follow – the little things I had re-tweeted and FAV’D – GONE!  Shame on Twitter for not making sure that YOU are the one who has ‘ordered’ this … and to be honest — Facebook should do the same! —- With so many hackers – spammers out there – this is one way to make sure that YOU are the owner of the site!  Now when I made the mistake – I can now NO LONGER use M Y  e-mail that I and all that know me use!!!  I have to use another that I do not use!  But YET – Twitter still has and shows that MY e-mail and MY name are already in use (taken) DUH!!!! YES – Now why does TWITTER not get this straight? 

Why has Twitter & Facebook Not taken and learned from WordPress that misstakes can and are made & it would be better to ask & be wrong than not to ask at all!

 

PS…Don’t you think that ‘like ‘WordPress’ Facebook & Twitter should have ONE Main Log-in Page!!!!!!!!! One that also shows & tells the Features that that service provides & WHAT to look for??

Does anyone want a dog?

 
 
My house was broken into last night by two robbers who locked me in the bathroom, and proceeded to steal all they could carry. My watchdog, “Sunshine”, did not alert me, and for this reason I am giving him away. I no longer want a dog – I’m installing an electric fence and detection devices with alarms. They’re cheaper and more reliable. For those interested in adopting the dog please send an e-mail urgently.

The boss wondered why one of his employees was absent but had not phoned in sick. So he dialed the employee‘s home phone number and was greeted with a child‘s whisper.

Hello ? ‘

‘Is your daddy home?’

Yes, he’s out in the garden ,’ whispered the small voice. ‘

May I talk with him?’

The child whispered, No .’ ;

So the boss asked, ‘Well, is your Mommy there?’

Yes, she’s out in the garden too

& The boss asked; ‘May I talk with her?’

Again the small voice whispered, No .’

Hoping there was somebody with whom he could leave a message, the boss asked, ‘Is anybody else there?’

Yes.’ whispered the child, A policeman. ‘

Wondering what a cop would be doing at his employee’s home, the boss asked, ‘Well, may I speak with the policeman?’

No, he’s busy. ‘ whispered the child.

‘Busy doing what?’

Talking to Daddy and Mommy and the police dog men.

Growing more worried as he heard a loud noise in the background, the boss asked, ‘What is that noise?’

It’s a helicopter. answered the whispering voice.

‘What is going on there?’ demanded the boss, now truly worried.

The search team just landed a helicopter.

‘A search team?’ said the boss. ‘What are they searching for?’

Still whispering, the young voice replied with a muffled giggle, Me!

Zsa Zsa in Coma

Husband: Zsa Zsa Slipped Into a Coma

By Audrey Morrison
Wed, 18 May 2011 19:51:32 GMT

zsa-zsa-big.jpgPrince Frederic von Anhalt told TMZ his ailing wife fell into a coma after being rushed to an L.A. hospital on Tuesday for emergency stomach surgery.

Zsa Zsa’s rep John Blanchette confirmed she was admitted because her feeding tube was causing “bleeding … like a fountain.”

Blanchette added that her husband “was worried and hoped she wasn’t dying in front of his eyes.”

Sadly, von Anhalt confirmed on Wednesday that his 94-year-old wife has been unresponsive since 2am.

This is the latest health setback for Gabor who has undergone hip replacement surgery, a leg amputation and was, most recently, hospitalized for pneumonia on May 5.

Stay away from my NOSE!

1995-3rd runner-up in Petite Contest
Deborah Register 1995 in Petite Contest

Nose – odd subject – but if you’ve ever had any type of nose surgery you can relate.

This may seem strange – but please just follow me here……

On the 23rd of March I had surgery on the nose – which actually started over a year ago when I had complained to a Doctor at Mayo Clinic about my unusual headaches – he did the usual EEGMRI of my lower back which I also had told this doctor about with my back being ‘out of wack’ and needed checking (mind you he only did and MRI of the very lower back) and when I mentioned that my headaches were NOT migraine (I know what those are) it was not stress related – it was just ‘not’ a headache and that I felt an MRI of my brain )((which I have one Every Year)) and one was over due – HE Told me.. “You don’t need one – but I’ll do one if it will please you and you think you need it.” 

Now forward fast to current – same hospital & Doctors location – was sent by another doctor here in town for 2nd opinion – from which this doctor I was sent to from another doctor in town who listened to me and my problems with not only my pain problems but the problem with understanding my back and my headaches……..THIS doctor is one who listened – sent me for EEG & MRI – (But not only just an MRI of the Back —- but the FULL BACK/SPINE – and included and FULL MRI of the Brain – and X-Ray of the lungs, and when the results came back  – lungs fine….back/spine showed the displacement of my spine all UP & DOWN but also a tear in the lower spine ( the Lumbar / Cervical / Thurastic ) .. and then the MRI results of the BRAIN – – – said problem IN PART might be coming from a sinus infection!! —- so now do you see where this began and where it takes me?

This doctor understood – sent me to the doctor who confirmed – who in turn sent me to another doctor for a second oppinion (at Mayo Clinic) and he is the one who did this surgery!

Deborah Register Day of Nose Surgery 2011 March 23

HE did three surgeries on my nose and while my nose is still not to it’s normal state that Mom & Dad & I remember my ‘small’ nose to be … we had become so use to seeing each other every day that some things you just take for granted – like getting old ‘er’ and thngs change…but Mom & Dad had mentioned about my face to themselves….(come to understand that my face was swollen — the left side was full of infection under the cheek which is in part of the nose) ((and back a few months earlier my ‘new’ eye doctor found that I had eye infection -that is also another story)) — but all things within the face are somehow connected.

While I keep in mind that I am so improving – I must remember that this was originally scheduled for the 6th of April  ( which was the day after Mom’s Birthday ’83’ ) and with the change – ON her birthday we had the Surgery 1st Follow-up .. and good results then we were able to go on to dinner etc and enjoy the afternoon! … MOTHER has been such an angel in all this.  The Nasal Irrigation which started the Saturday after the surgery Mom has done for me … and I’m so thankful & grateful for her being able to help me with this…..this is one part I just do not think that I could have done mysself…..

The surgery (as I mention) was moved up from the April 6th date to March 23 date – so the afternoon before when I had to rush things through and see the doctor he wanted to know if I knew exactly what he was going to do – I said NO – and did not want to know! — as things had been moved up (becuase before I had plently of time to read the info) … I had glanced 0ver the info …. and that was Enough …

So the Surgeries —-

1)  Septoplasty  2)  Turbinate  Hypertrophy and  Rhinitis  3)  Endoscopic Sinus Surgery

If you’ve ever had NOSE surgery or know someone who has – Don’t bother their nose!

If you see something out of ‘place’ with the nose – check it!

So there you have it – why I’ve been lack in responding to your posts or posting much of anything!

Getting Better-April 10, 2011

in the face?  It is NOT where I want it yet and the nose is still swollen – but

Interesting!

After reading this, you will never look at a deck of cards in the same way.

 

Here is a new way to look at a deck of cards!!
Please do not delete! You will be glad you didn’t.

Deck of Cards

It was quiet that day, the guns and the mortars, and land mines for some reason hadn’t been heard.

The young soldier knew it was Sunday, the holiest day of the week.

As he was sitting there, he got out an old deck of cards and laid them out across his bunk.

Just then an army sergeant came in and said, ‘Why aren’t you with the rest of the platoon?’

The soldier replied, ‘I thought I would stay behind and spend some time with the Lord.’

The sergeant said, ‘Looks to me like you’re going to play cards.’

The soldier said, ‘No, sir . You see, since we are not allowed to have Bibles or other spiritual books in this country,

I’ve decided to talk to the Lord by studying this deck of cards.’

The sergeant asked in disbelief, ‘How will you do that?’

‘You see the Ace, Sergeant? It reminds me that there is only one God.

The Two represents the two parts of the Bible, Old and New Testaments

The Three represents the Father, Son, and the Holy Ghost.

The Four stands for the Four Gospels: Matthew, Mark, Luke and John .

The Five is for the five virgins there were ten but only five of them were glorified.

The Six is for the six days it took God to create the Heavens and Earth.

The Seven is for the day God rested after making His Creation.

The Eight is for the family of Noah and his wife, their three sons and their wives — the eight people God spared from the flood that destroyed the Earth.

The Nine is for the lepers that Jesus cleansed of leprosy He cleansed ten, but nine never thanked Him.

The Ten represents the Ten Commandments that God handed down to Moses on tablets made of stone.

The Jack is a reminder of Satan, one of God’s first angels, but he got kicked out of heaven for his sly and wicked ways and is now the joker of eternal hell.

The Queen stands for the Virgin Mary.

The King stands for Jesus, for he is the King of all kings.

When I count the dots on all the cards, I come up with 365 total, one for every day of the year.

There are a total of 52 cards in a deck; each is a week – 52 weeks in a year.

The four suits represent the four seasons: Spring, Summer, Fall and Winter..

Each suit has thirteen cards — there are exactly thirteen weeks in a quarter.

So when I want to talk to God and thank Him, I just pull out this old deck of cards and they remind me of all that I have to be thankful for.’

The sergeant just stood there. After a minute, with tears in his eyes and pain in his heart, he said, ‘Soldier, can I borrow that deck of cards?’

Please let this be a reminder and take time to pray for all of our soldiers who are being sent away, putting their lives on the line fighting

Prayer for the Military.

Please keep the wheel rolling. It will only take a few seconds of your time, but it’ll be worth it to read on….

Lord, hold our troops in your loving hands.

Protect them.

Bless them and their families

I ask this in the name of Jesus, our Lord and Savior.

Amen

When you receive this, please stop for a moment and say a prayer for our servicemen and women all around the world.

There is nothing attached, but this can be very powerful.

Of all the gifts you could give a Soldier, prayer is the very best one.

Do not stop the wheel, please — just send this on.

When forwarding, please keep this letter clean by deleting all forwarding information from the subject line and from the top of the letter.
In God I Trust!
 
 
 
 

THANK GOD EACH DAY FOR OUR BRAVE MEN AND WOMEN IN THE SERVICE PROTECTING US WHERE WE CAN BE SAFE.

I’m Fine…..How are you?

 

It is better to say “I’m fine” with a grin,
Than to let people know the shape we are in.

 

I’M FINE!! HOW ARE YOU?

 


There’s nothing the matter with me,
I’m just as healthy as can be,
I have arthritis in both knees,
And when I talk, I talk with a wheeze.
My pulse is weak, my blood is thin,
But I’m awfully well for the shape I’m in.

 


All my teeth have had to come out,
And my diet I hate to think about.
I’m overweight and I can’t get thin,
But I’m awfully well for the shape I’m in.

 


And arch supports I need for my feet.
Or I wouldn’t be able to go out in the street.
Sleep is denied me night after night,
But every morning I find I’m all right.
My memory’s failing, my head’s in a spin.
But I’m awfully well for the shape I’m in.

 


Old age is golden I’ve heard it said,
But sometimes I wonder, as I go to bed.
With my ears in a drawer, my teeth in a cup,
And my glasses on a shelf, until I get up.
And when sleep dims my eyes, I say to myself,
Is there anything else I should lay on the shelf?

 


The reason I know my Youth has been spent,
Is my get-up-and-go has got-up-and-went!
But really I don’t mind, when I think with a grin,
Of all the places my get-up has been.

 


I get up each morning and dust off my wits,
Pick up the paper and read the obits.
If my name is missing, I’m therefore not dead,
So I eat a good breakfast and jump back into bed.

The moral of this as the tale unfolds,
Is that for you and me, who are growing old.
It is better to say “I’m fine” with a grin,
Than to let people know the shape we are in.

I’M FINE!! HOW ARE YOU?

A very powerful cartoon…..please keep it going.

This should be posted in every school in the ” USA ..”

 

Only 31 words — Think about it!

 
Isn’t life strange? I never met one Veteran who enlisted to fight for Socialism!

86% will send this on.

I PLEDGE ALLEGIANCE TO THE FLAG, OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA , AND TO THE REPUBLIC FOR WHICH IT STANDS, ONE NATION UNDER GOD, INDIVISIBLE, WITH LIBERTY AND JUSTICE FOR ALL!

 

If Muslims can pray on Madison Avenue, why are Christians banned from praying in public and from erecting religious displays on their holy days?

What happened to our National Day of Prayer? Obama says we can’t have that; yet, Muslims are allowed to block off Madison Ave. , in N.Y.C., and pray in the middle of the street! And, it’s a monthly ritual!

Tell me, again, whose country is this? Ours or the Muslims?

I was asked to send this on if I agree, or delete if I don’t.
 
It is said that 86% of Americans believe in God.

Therefore, I have a very hard time understanding why there is such a problem in having ‘In God! We Trust’ on our money and having ‘God’ in the Pledge of Allegiance.

I believe it’s time we stand up for what we believe!

Precautions ::: Mammograms and Dental XRays/ A Useful Warning

The information below I received just now in e-mail –  *** IT has Been checked and it is
CORRECT! *** – it just might be your time (or your wife’s  ( or girlfriend) ) to have
a Mammogram done and without asking you might not know) — and I would
rather get it out so YOU have a voice to ASK!

Precautions re Mammograms and Dental XRays/ A Useful Warning
A wife sent me this:
 
On Wednesday there was a TV segment on the fastest growing cancer in women, thyroid cancer. It was a very interesting program that mentioned that the increase could possibly be related to the use of dental x-rays and mammograms. On the apron/shield the dental tech places over your upper body during dental x-rays there is a little flap that can be lifted up and wrapped around your neck. Many dentists don’t even bother to use it. Also, there is something called a “thyroid guard” for use during mammograms.
 
By coincidence, I had my yearly mammogram yesterday. I felt a little silly, but I asked about the guard and sure enough, the technician had one in a drawer. I asked why it wasn’t routinely used. Answer: “I don’t know. You have to ask for it.” Well, if I hadn’t seen the show, how would I have known to ask?
 
I hope you pass this on to your friends and family.

OLD TIMER SEX

 

This is too funny to be dirty – enjoy!

 
The husband leans over and asks his wife,’Do you remember the first time we had sex together over  fifty years ago?
We went behind the village tavern where you leaned against the back fence and I made love to you.’ 

‘Yes’, she says, ‘I remember it well.’ 

‘OK,’ he says, ‘How about taking a stroll around there again and we can do it for old time‘s sake?’ 

‘Oh Jim, you old devil, that sounds like a crazy, but good idea!’ 

A police officer sitting in the next booth heard their conversation and, having a chuckle to himself, he thinks, I’ve got to see these two old-timers having sex against a fence. I’ll just keep an eye on them so there’s no trouble. 

So he follows them. 

The elderly couple walks haltingly along, leaning on each other for support aided by walking sticks..Finally,they get to the back of the tavern and make their way to the fence..

The old lady lifts her skirt and the old man drops his trousers.

As she leans against the fence, the old man moves in..Then suddenly they erupt into the most furious sex that the policeman has ever seen..

This goes on for about ten minutes while both are making loud noises     and moaning and screaming. Finally,they both collapse, panting on the ground.

The policeman is amazed.He thinks he has learned something about life and old age that he didn’t know.

After about half an hour of lying on the ground recovering,

the old couple struggles to their feet and puts their clothes back on.

The policeman, is still watching and thinks to himself, this is truly amazing, I’ve got to ask them what their secret is.

So, as the couple passes, he says to them,’Excuse me, but that was something else. You must’ve had a fantastic sex life together. Is there some sort of secret to this?’

Shaking, the old man is barely able to reply,’Fifty years ago that wasn’t an electric fence.

Nagging Wife

 
 
A man and his ever-nagging wife went on vacation in Jerusalem. While they were there, the wife passed away. The undertaker told the husband, “You can have her buried here in the Holy Land for $150 or we can have her shipped back home for $5000.
 
The husband thought about it and told the undertaker he would have her shipped back home. The undertaker asked him, “why would you spend $5000 to have her shipped home when you could have a beautiful burial here, and it would only cost $150?”
 
The husband replied, “Long ago, a man died here, was buried here, and three days later, rose from the dead.  I Just cannot take that chance!”
