Being from a poor family, I was often envious of others when I was a kid, the kids that had all the cool clothes and toys. My neighbor bought a wall plaque and this one is old as the hills but it stuck with me since I was about 7 years old. "I cried because I had no shoes, until I met a man that had no feet."

Naw Em, I know you were the one that the Fonz copied. I wanted to be like Elvis. All I wound up being was the hound dog. Didn't do the greaser thing, we all wanted the long hairz, Daddy eliminated that idea with his hair clippers. He got the redazz when haircuts went up to 50 cents and bought the clippers, told Mama that he learned how to cut hair in the service. So I guess you can imagine what style haircut we got. My older brother disappeared when he got started on me and my younger brothers, somehow he talked Mama into stopping Daddy from getting him in the chair, saving his long hairz. Nolan

Plaque

My wife has a plaque in the kitchen, it was handed down from her Granny. It reads, " Don't criticize your wifes judgement, look who she married."

I need to put this on a T-shirt and wear it everyday. Could'a saved me a lot of money.

A lot of people like snow. I find it to be an unnecessary freezing of water. ~Carl Reiner





The snow doesn't give a soft white damn whom it touches. ~e.e. cummings

Those photos - that's what I woke to this morning and the first real dump of the season And yes, I did plow out

The second picture looks beautiful. I haven't seen snow in quite a few years, maybe I'll get a chance to visit the local mountains one of these days.

I have a number of handicapped friends that I have known for years. Hanging around with these people teach you REAL quick how lucky and blessed you are! And each one of them too! There is always someone WORSE off than you, I don't care who you are.
