Wednesdays Question

It's Wednesday so that means it's question time. It's time to ponder and then answer just one question. Okay, you can add all you want as a reason for your answer too. We'd all like that. I'll even answer my own question as that's only fair.

So here's this weeks question: Do you wear bright colors or are you rather bland?

The System

Indian Chief 'Two Eagles' was asked by a white government official, 'You have observed the white man for 90 years. You've seen his wars and his technological advances. You've seen his progress, and the damage he's done.'

The Chief nodded in agreement.

The official continued, 'Considering all these events, in your opinion, where did the white man go wrong?'

New York Times

A Harley rider is passing the zoo, when he sees a little girl leaning into the lion's cage. Suddenly, the lion grabs her by the cuff of her jacket and tries to pull her inside to slaughter her, under the eyes of her screaming parents. The biker jumps off his bike, runs to the cage, and hits the lion square on the nose with a powerful punch.

Federal Police Authority

Almost 150 years ago, President Lincoln found it necessary to hire a private investigator - Alan Pinkerton - for protection. And that was the beginning of the Secret Service. Since that time, federal police authority has grown in depth, scope, and to a large number of multi-letter agencies - CID, OSI, NIS, FBI, CIA, INS, IRS, DEA, BATF, etc.

Fragments

We had a lovely long weekend on the boat. Just stayed in the slip and enjoyed watching the wildlife and reading our books. Nothing more relaxing than being on the water.

Did you know that we sleep better on our little 34 foot boat than we sleep here in our big home. Well we do. It's the most amazing thing.

Weird Facts About Cats

Cats with only one eye are known as harbingers of luck. If, after encountering one, you spit on your thumb, jab it into the palm of your hand, and make a wish, no doubt the wish will come true!

People once believed that cats might creep into nurseries to steal babies' breaths. Nursemaids were ordered to stand constant watch over the little ones to protect them from the "dreaded" cat.

Applying dried cat skin to the face was thought to cure toothaches, and a whole cat boiled in oil was a cure for wounds in the 1600's.

Baby Audi

Last Monday evening we had a party for our oldest granddaughter's 22 birthday. Each member of the family gets to chose where they want to have dinner and Sarah wanted to come to our house. She used to always want to go to Red Lobster because she loves shrimp so much, but she's not wanted to go for several years. She also got to set the menu. Here's what she wanted and here's what she got:

I Think to Myself...

I see trees of green... red roses too
I see em bloom... for me and for you
And I think to myself... what a wonderful world.

I see skies of blue... clouds of white
Bright blessed days... dark sacred nights
And I think to myself... what a wonderful world.

Aggressive & Hostile!

A motorcycle police officer stops a driver for shooting through a red light. The driver is a real bastard, steps out of his car and comes striding toward the officer, demanding to know why he is being harassed by the Gestapo!

So the officer calmly tells him of the red light violation. The motorist instantly goes on a tirade, questioning the officer's ancestry, sexual orientation, etc., in rather explicit offensive terms. The tirade goes on without the officer saying anything.

The Beginning...

In ancient Israel , it came to pass that a trader by the name of Abraham Com did take unto himself a young wife by the name of Dorothy.

Dot Com was a comely woman, broad of shoulder and long of leg. Indeed, she was often called Amazon Dot Com.

And she said unto Abraham, her husband, "Why dost thou travel so far from town to town with thy goods when thou canst trade without ever leaving thy tent?"

Life is TOO short to dance with ugly men.

I'm going south for the winter.. actually... some parts of me... are headed there already!

I think of hot-air ballooning as the most fear you'll ever experience in a wicker basket.
