Friday Night Funnies: Dogs and Red Necks.

Dogs, what can you say?

Apology Letters To Spouse - PRICELESS!
Hi Sweetheart, 

I am sorry about getting into an argument about putting up the Christmas lights. 
I guess that sometimes I feel like you are pushing me too hard when you want something.
  I realize that I was wrong and I am apologizing for being such a hard-headed guy. 
All I want is for you to be happy and be able to enjoy the holiday season. 
Nothing brightens the Christmas spirit like Christmas lights!  I took the time to hang the lights for you today;
and now I will be off to the hockey rink. 

Again, I am very sorry for the way I acted yesterday.  I'll be home later. 

Love you……
Her response -  
Hi Honey, 
Thank you for that heart-felt apology. 
I don't often get an apology from you, and I truly appreciate it.  
I, too, felt bad about the argument and wanted to apologize. 
I realize that I can sometimes be a little pushy.  I will try to respect your feelings from now on. 
 Thank you for taking the time to hang the Christmas lights for me. 
It really means a lot.  In the spirit of giving, I washed your truck for you;
and now I am off to the mall. 

I love you too!


Red Necks???

 Red Neck???

Stopped by the Hell Creek Bar in Jordan (Montana) last week, and I’ll be damned if ol’ Gumbo Nunley wasn’t barred up.  Sent a drink down to him and walked over to see what he was up to.

“Gumbo,” I says,”thought you moved to Arizona for good.”

He says,”Me, too, but a judge down there told me he’d suspend my sentence if I left the state, so I hauled ass before he changed his mind!”

“What the hell was that about?”  I asked him.

He says,”Well, I stopped in Kingman to get a case of beer and I had just put the beer on the roof of my truck and my hat blew off.  So I trotted across the parking lot to get it and as I was walking back, this illegal alien ran up to my pickup, grabbed the beer, and hauled ass.  So I grabbed the rifle outa the rack and tipped his ass over. And as I’m walking over to get my beer back the sheriff, who had seen the whole fracas come up and put me under arrest.”

I says to him,"I thought it was legal to shoot illegal aliens here in Arizona!"

"Well yeah, under the right circumstances, it sure is," says the sheriff,"BUT YOU CAN’T USE BAIT."

Red Neck???

Red neck or just old???

 My neighbor was working in his yard when he was startled by a late model car that came crashing through his hedge and ended up in his front lawn.
He rushed to help an elderly lady driver out of the car and sat her down on a lawn chair.
He said with excitement, "you appear quite elderly to be driving."
"Well, yes, I am," she replied proudly. "I'll be 97 next month, and I am now old enough that I don't even need a driver's license anymore.
"The last time I went to my doctor, he examined me and asked if I had a driver's license. I told him yes and handed it to him. He took scissors out of the drawer, cut the license into pieces, and threw them in the wastebasket, saying, 'You won't need this anymore,' so I thanked him and left!"

Red Neck???

Red Neck???

 To all my friends and family, At this time of the year, when the roadblocks come up with great
regularity, I would like to share a personal experience about drinking
and driving. As you well know, some of us have been known to have
had brushes with the authorities on our way home from an
occasional social session over the years.
 A couple of nights ago, I was out for an evening with friends and had
a couple of cocktails and some rather nice red wine. Knowing full well
I may have been slightly over the limit, I did something I've never
done before - I took a cab home. Sure enough, I passed a police road
block but, since it was a cab, they waved it past.
 I arrived home safely without incident, which was a real surprise, as I
have never driven a cab before and am not sure where I got it or what
to do with it now that it's in my garage.

Red Neck???

And my favorite, dog picture of all far.....

So, get off your butt and enjoy the wonderful weather we are getting, finally. It's been brutal here since October, Halloween was a nightmare (I know bad pun, but true).

As of today, I have two teenagers that can drive my that a nightmare or what??

Oh well, getting ready for our New Years Eve party....I do love cooking and knowing that people enjoy the food. All I need now, is a really good punch (alcohol included/excluded) recipe.

NORAD Does Santa Proud!

Okay all you little ones, time to make sure you are in bed soon. Check out where Santa is at NORAD.

I hope everyone has a wonderful Christmas, and may we keep the Christ in Christmas. Presents are nice, but they are meaningless without that feeling of cheer and in your heart gladness. For the last few weeks, all of a sudden, the word JOY comes into my mind, and a warm feeling embraces me, that is Christmas.
A  Nativity Scene was erected in a church yard. 

During the night the folks came across this scene.

An abandoned dog was looking for a comfortable, protected place to sleep. 

He chose baby Jesus as his comfort.  No one had the heart to send him away

so he was there all night.

Now, I am off to finish up the 12th meatless dish for our Christmas Eve dinner, can I just make it pickles and call it a dish?

Merry Christmas all!

Our Hearts Hurt

Those poor babies. Such a senseless act of violence, by an obviously deranged individual. My prayers go out to all those who lost their loved ones. May God wrap his arms around those little ones and give the families some measure of peace. Let them feel his love and rest easy.

Maybe what we need to do is allow God back into our lives. It can be as simple as obeying the ten commandments. Even the atheists among us can agree with some of them, like... "Thou shalt not kill".

Of course the lefties are getting all wound up about "gun control" when they should be looking at the laws that let mentally disturbed individuals roam our streets. Most of those individuals could be functioning adults if they were given a home that monitored their medications, instead they are deposited on our streets, left to fend for themselves. The progressives think putting people in institutions for the mentally disabled takes away their freedom, (too be homeless I guess),  without admitting that the consequence of their inaction is what we saw on Friday, mass murder of the real innocents.

If one teacher had a gun, the massacre could have ended with fewer victims. Don't believe me? How about this article.

PORTLAND, Ore ... Nick Meli is emotionally drained.  The 22-year-old was at Clackamas Town Center with a friend and her baby when a masked man opened fire.
"I heard three shots and turned and looked at Casey and said, 'are you serious?'"
The friend and baby hit the floor.  Meli, who has a concealed carry permit, positioned himself behind a pillar.
"He was working on his rifle," said Meli.  "He kept pulling the charging handle and hitting the side."
The break in gunfire allowed Meli to pull out his own gun, but he never took his eyes off the shooter.
"As I was going down to pull I saw someone in the back of the charlotte move and I knew if I fired and missed I could hit them."
Meli took cover inside a nearby store.  He never pulled the trigger.  He stands by that decision.
"I'm not beating myself up cause I didn't shoot him," said Meli.  "I know after he saw me I think the last shot he fired was the one he used on himself."
The gunman was dead, but not before taking two innocent lives with him and taking the innocence of everyone else.
"I don't ever want to see anyone that way ever," said Meli.  "It just bothers me."
Of course no one can prove he stopped more killings, but if the gunman saw him pointing a gun at him, then it distracted him, and changed what he was going to do, and that is good enough for me.

Why do the criminals have all the advantages? As a female, I am told not to resist if I get attacked, I can't even carry "pepper spray" to help me fend off an attacker. Why do the progressives want females to be victims, unable to defend themselves? Why don't the feminists encourage concealed carry gun laws for women? Yet they loudly cry about "our bodies, our choice" when it comes to killing their own babies. SAD.

If you think that the Americans are "gun crazy" and they should have tougher gun control laws, why does Chicago, a "no gun zone", have the highest murder rate in the country? No gun law can prevent a homicidal manic from getting a gun and killing innocent victims. Maybe progressives should rethink their approach to mental health issues instead.

By the way, the school that my son attends has an armed (GASP) police officer on duty, maybe that should be what Americans do to prevent more mass murders of innocents. Well except that Obama cancelled school security funds so that he could fund failed green enterprises like Solyndra. And they thought Bush was bad?

The media/progressives have an agenda and it's all about gun control, not mental illness. They should be held responsible for all the misinformation they gave out in covering the Newtown massacre, it was disgusting and harmful.

May the people of Newtown heal, and may their hearts hurt less as time goes by.

If Only They Had Listened....

An excellent speech meant to wake up America, unfortunately they voted for Santa Claus instead.

The games being played by Obama are going to hurt the American economy, and as a consequence, the Canadian economy as well, so buckle up and if possible, go west.

It really irks me when people whine about all the immigrants taking Canadian jobs, yet our own Canadians from other provinces refuse to relocate to where the jobs are, in Alberta and Saskatchewan.

Come on out here, it's only minus 25 tonight, you can handle that! Or maybe not, you central Canada sissies! (meaning Toronto, not the rest of the province) We do love our eastern brothers and sisters from Newfoundland though! They work here and send their cheques home to improve the living standards of their families, no flies on them!

As for the Nexen deal? Small potatoes in the oil sands. You have to know that China is going to want a pipeline to get the oil to them, so it will be interesting to see if the lefties continue their attacks on the oil sands now, or if they bow to the major world polluter, China and Mo Strong.

Expect to see more takeovers of Canadian companies, especially by US companies. Their economy stinks and with Obama elected for another 4 years, they will be shifting their operations to a more investment friendly environment, namely, Canada. Win-Win for us!
