There was a Texas oil tycoon who was watching his largest oil well going up in flames.

He called in the best fire fighting equipment money could buy but there was no way they could get close enough to the intense flames to reach them with their water hose.

Finally, out of desperation, he called the local volunteer fire department.

They chugged up in their 1946 truck and passed every one of the state of the art rigs and headed toward the center of the fire. They stopped, jumped out, sprayed each other down with water, and then proceeded to put out the fire. 

When they were finally finished, the millionaire was so impressed with the crew's dedication and bravery, he awarded the chief with a check for $10,000.

 Later, a reporter asked the chief what he was going to do with the money. 

The chief replied, "Well, the first thing we're going to do is fix those lousy brakes!!"

Eclipse 2017

For about 90 minutes yesterday...Across these Divided United States.. We weren't democrats or Republicans, Black ,Latino,Asian, American Indian or White....We weren't Arab or Christian...or White Supremacists and Anti Fa...We weren't Alt Right or Alt Left...We were just human beings, just people in awe of something we could neither control or understand....

The Eclipse!

Everybody was watching it...

Oh there of course were the usual kill joys who were underwhelmed or said they were underwhelmed...But I'll bet that even they watched...

People had their special glasses and their smartphones and were looking and snapping "Sun Selfies" or should I say "Moon Selfies..."

Personally I thought it was the coolest thing I've ever seen...I hadn't planned on watching...but a lady allowed me to use her glasses and observe...I was in awe....

At that moment, I felt very small in the larger scheme of things...I think we were all reminded of how very small we are in the larger scheme of things...

It was nice that for 90 minutes..We put political differences and what happened on Game Of Thrones, Power and Insecure on the back burner....

for something really larger than life!

What I Worry About

Courtesy of Jackie Hinnant Bass-

A friend of mine posted this on Facebook, yesterday and I don't know about you, but this is basically what's been on my mind.
"You know what worries me? It's not that a group of racist idiots lit some tiki torches and decided to have a rally.

I worry that on Monday they went back to their job in human resources and decided who gets hired and who gets fired. They put their uniform back on and 'serve and protect.

They sit on a jury and decide the fate of a young person of color. They teach in a kindergarten class. 

They sit across from a couple, who came to this country, worked hard and saved, and have the power to approve or deny them a loan to purchase their first home. 

They decide an insurance claim. They give an estimate to repair the brakes on a mother's only mode of transportation to get to work each day.

I don't stay up lamenting the fact that racists feel emboldened to parade in the street.

I stay up because racists have, do, and will apply their racist beliefs in their daily lives and, by extension mine, and they don't do it carrying a banner to distinguish themselves.
It isn't the theatrical that worries me. It's the practical."


Think about that...let that marinate!

Random Thoughts

1.  We don't have to live in a world of hatred and intolerance.

2. We can start now by teaching our small children acceptance for people who may be different than them.

3. We should teach our children and our teenagers tolerance for people of all races, religions and preferences...

4. In the End, We are all just people....

5.  I think we should all make a conscious effort to befriend someone of a different race or religion.

6. Imagine a world where there are no Alt-Right or Hate Groups.

Just My Two cents....Have a great weekend everybody!

The phone call
Several men are in the locker room of a private club after exercising. Suddenly a cell phone on one of the benches rings. A man picks it up and the following conversation ensues:

"Honey, It's me."


"Are you at the club?"


"Great! I'm at the mall 2 blocks from where you are. I saw a beautiful mink coat. It is absolutely gorgeous! Can I buy it?"

"What's the price?"

"Only $1,500."

"Well, okay, go ahead and get it, if you like it that much."

"Ahhh, and I also stopped by the Mercedes dealership and saw the 2002 models. I saw one I really liked. I spoke with the salesman and he gave me a really good price ... and since we need to exchange the BMW that we bought last year..."

"What price did he quote you?"

"Only $60,000!"

"Okay, but for that price I want it with all the options."

"Great! Before we hang up, something else..."


"It might seem like a lot, but I was reconciling your bank account and...well, I stopped by to see the real estate agent this morning and I saw the house we had looked at last year. It's on sale! Remember? The one with a pool, English garden, acre of park area, beachfront property..."

"How much are they asking?"

"Only $650,000... a magnificent price, and I see that we have that much in the bank to cover..."

"Well, then go ahead and buy it, but just bid $620,000, OK?"

"Okay, sweetie. Thanks! I'll see you later!! I love you!!!" "Bye."

The man hangs up, closes the phone's flap and asks aloud, "Does anyone know whose phone this is?"

Everybody have a great weekend!

Flawed Mathematics

Trumps denunciation of White Nationalists and other Alt Right Racists was too little and too late and appeared to be forced because the White House was taking universal condemnation for his first statement!

This is the story of how earrings became so popular for men:

John looked over at his coworker Tom. He noticed that he had an earring on one of his ears.

Tom was usually a pretty conservative guy so John is curious.

He approached Tom and asked him, "If you don't mind me asking, what's with the earring?"

Tom replied, "Don't worry about it, it's just an earring."

John let it go for a few minutes but then his curiosity peaked again, "So how long have you been wearing and earring?"

Tom replied, "Ever since my wife found it in our bed."

A truck driver was driving between towns on a country road when he spotted a gorgeous woman hitchhiking.

 He stopped without hesitation and she climbed into the cab showing mountains of cleavage.

Two miles further down the road, he got a flat, pulled to the side of the road and got out to inspect the tire.

He was fiddling around with the wheel, when the woman opened the window and shouted down, "Do you want a screwdriver?"

The driver replied, all smiles, "Might as well. I can't get this damn hub cap off."
