Special Report

This just in! After an apparent mid-air collision with an unmanned UPS drone, a single engine broom was forced to make a crash landing near Kennesaw, Georgia. NTSB investigators stated that the pilot, a Miss Elphaba Thropp, suffered only minor injuries until a well-meaning witness to the crash, doused the smoking broom and Miss Thropp with a bucket of water. Miss Dorothy Gale of Kansas, told investigators that Elphaba’s last words were, “Ohhh! You cursed brat! Look what you've done! I'm melting! Melting! Oh, what a world! What a world!” Records show that the model of the broom Miss Thropp was piloting had a near perfect safety record with only one previous incident in which, coincidentally, Elphaba’s sister was killed by a falling house. The NTSB is still investigating the crash site to determine if Miss Thropp had been texting while flying or attempting to use "spell" check.

I just accepted the "sweet iced tea challenge." I sat on my deck and sipped on a cold and tasty iced tea. I then made a donation to a charity of my choice. I challenge you to do the same.

Thank You

Remembering the 70th Anniversary of D-Day. Thanks to each and every member of the Allied forces that sacrificed so much for us all.

(Photo of the "Liberty Belle", a WWII B-17 Bomber. I was lucky enough to take a 30 minute flight on her back in 2010. In June of 2011, the Liberty Belle made a crash landing in a field in Illinois, burst into flames and was destroyed. Fortunately there were no injuries or deaths.)

May the 4th be with you??

I know that the "Star Wars" groupies are very excited about today. But personally, I can't wait until tomorrow.

Almost 14 years ago my youngest daughter Meredith received a birthday gift that changed all of our lives for the better … “Brady”, a fluffy Pembroke Welsh Corgi. Although he was indeed Meredith's puppy, his heart was large enough to encompass all of us with his love. Always there for us … always happy … always ready to make each and every day brighter. “Brady” left us this evening to brighten the days forever for all those he meets on his next great adventure where all good dogs go when they leave us. You will always be in our hearts “Brady” as you made our hearts so much larger and so much more capable of unconditional love. You will be missed but never forgotten.

Needed more warm-up?

Gio Gonzalez of the Washington Nationals looked very good during warm-ups before facing the Braves today.  Gio did NOT look very good once the game started.  Braves scored 6 runs off him in the first two innings.  Final score ... Braves 10, Nats 2.

The TOP FIVE reasons why David Letterman is retiring in 2015:

5--Microphone emits feedback every time it gets close to Dave's "First Alert" necklace.

2--Even at 82 degrees in the Ed Sullivan Theater, Dave still feels chilled.

And the number one reason why David Letterman is retiring in 2015:

1--Got himself a very sweet deal on a Fixed Indexed Annuity.

How to handle a phone scammer

So, I get a phone call from this dude who says he is a Microsoft technician from California. (Who oddly enough sounded like he was really in Mumbai) Anyway, I have heard about these scammer types so I immediately go into my best southern Georgia, “Honey Boo-Boo” accent … 
“H’lo whatcha want?”
“Sir, do you have Windows?” 
“Not since the tornado,” I sez. “Heck, I’m lucky to have a door to my trailer. Had to board everything up.” 
“Do you have the desktop?”
“Nope, I do all my paperwork on the kitchen table, just like everyone else in the trailer park.” 
“Do you have the laptop?”
“I’m tellin’ you this in confidence my friend. I have been known, on payday, to visit the Pink Pony for a quick lap dance. But I will deny that if you tell anyone.” 
“How then do you get your email?” 
“I don’t know what this email thing is … but, when I want THE mail, I walk down to the end of the drive and take it out of my mailbox. That was, I did before that dang tornado blew my mailbox all the way to India!” 
“You do not have any computer devices in your home?” 
“I am lucky to have electricity at all! Heck, they just turned the power back on an hour ago. And I’m told it will be a week before I have phone service.”
(Long pause) “I will call you back when your phone service is restored. Goodbye” 
“Hey, wait a minute fella. Before you hang up, do me a favor and look out your window. Can you see my dang mailbox? You have windows don’tcha!!!”

Unionized College Football?

“In a ruling that could revolutionize college athletics, a federal agency ruled Wednesday that college football players at Northwestern University can unionize.”    Which brings us to:

The TOP FIVE demands by a unionized college football team:

5) More time spent in huddle, less actual playing time.

4) Every other Saturday off.

3) All penalties are subject to a collective bargaining grievance procedure.

2) Three minute quarters, 60 minute half-time.

1) Every team will play in a bowl game. (Oh, wait … that appears to be happening already.)

Daylight Savings Time

This tree at Kennesaw Mountain National Battlefield Park appears to be getting ready to "Spring Forward". To avoid completely shocking my body and mind, I will spring forward 30 minutes tonight and another 30 tomorrow night.

If the #Oscars2014 run much longer, will they announce next year's winners as well? I'm asking for a really sleepy friend.

Snow in Georgia!

Just realized that snow in Georgia is sorta like dog years. 1 inch of snow is like driving in 7 inches.

Canada Cold!

If you think our weather here in Georgia has been wacky and very cold at times, see what Canada is experiencing. I just got off the phone with a friend who lives in Regina, Saskatchewan.

She said that since early this morning the snow has been nearly waist high and is still falling. The temperature is 32 below zero and the north wind is increasing to near gale force. Wind chill is -59. Her husband has done nothing but look through the kitchen window and just stare. She says that if it gets much worse, she may have to let the drunken loser in.
