22 Great Rules to Live By.......

01. Do not walk behind me, for I may not lead. Do not walk ahead of me, for I may not follow. Do not walk beside me either. Just pretty muchleave me the hell alone.

02. The journey of a thousand miles begins with a broken fan beltand leaky tire.

03. Its always darkest before dawn. So if you're going to steal your neighbor's newspaper, that's the time to do it.

04. Don't be irreplaceable. If you can't be replaced, you can't be promoted.

05. Always remember that you're unique. Just like everyone else.

06. Never test the depth of the water with both feet.

07. If you think nobody cares if you're alive, try missing a couple of car payments.

08 Before you criticize someone, you should walk a mile in their shoes. That way, when you criticize them, you're a mile away and you have their shoes

09. If at first you don't succeed, skydiving is probably not for you.

10. Give a man a fish and he will eat for a day. Teach him how to fish, and he will sit in a boat and drink beer all day.

11. If you lend someone $20 and never see that person again, it was probably a wise investment.

12. If you tell the truth, you don't have to remember anything.

13. Some days you're the bug; some days you're the windshield.

14. Everyone seems normal until you get to know them.

15. The quickest way to double your money is to fold it in half and put it back in your pocket.

16. A closed mouth gathers no foot.

17. Duct tape is like 'The Force'. It has a light side and a darkside, and it holds the universe together.

18. There are two theories to arguing with women. Neither one works.

19. Generally speaking, you aren't learning much when your lips
are moving.

20. Experience is something you don't get until just after you need it.

21. Never miss a good chance to shut up.

22. Never, under any circumstances, take a sleeping pill and a laxative on the same night.

Please welcome GOLIATH to your hearts, minds and homes!

Goliath is our new puppy and what a puppy he is. At 3 months old he is one of the smartest dogs I have ever seen. He has picked up several basic commands such as sit, bark, lay down, roll over and shake with ease.

This picture was taken out in the yard next to a downed tree that I am in the process of cleaning up. Goliath of course is in the way of my efforts to get the mess cleaned up!

He is without a doubt, me and the wife's pride and joy. Stay turned for more Goliath pic's in the near future.



This is a MUST READ.....

Despite the fact it comes from the far FAR and FAR left NPR this is a GREAT article about a true American Hero and Navy Seal, Marcus Luttrell. He was the sole surviving SEAL after his team's ambush in the mountains of Afghanistan. He was shot multiple times and crawled miles and miles fighting the whole way--to safety. In this article luttrell would like to say a thing or two about the so called "rules of war" that our troops are expected to follow but the enemy doesn't. This is truely a GREAT Read.... AGAIN...Despite the fact it comes from NPR..

A few days ago my left knee began to hurt, and I mean hurt.

Being no stranger to pain, this DROVE me TO GET OFF my ass and go to see the doctor. Having had a few surgeries on my body over the years I was CONVINCED I had torn some cartilage in my left knee. The pain and discomfort was the nearly the same as when I tore cartilage in my right knee in 1997. There was some slight swelling as well to further my suspicions.

Well upon finishing examining me my Doc tells he doesn't think I need surgery and that I have just sprained my knee. Rest will solve the problem. So far the Doc has been right. My knee is feeling a little better each day. THANK THE LORD!! Amen!! So mote it be!

What puzzles me is I don't know HOW I SPRAINED my knee. There was no fall, slip or bump to explain the sudden pain. Anyway I am thankful I won't be needing the rest of the summer to rehab a bum knee and special thanks to my PCP Doc who is the BEST. Medicine needs more doctors like him. The only positive thing IF I did need surgery is that at least I have this seasons firewood all taken care of so I wouldn't be behind the 8 ball that way.
