This was sent to me by my friend Tom, a fellow Coast Guard vet that I have known since junior high Down south, Bubba called his attorney and asked, "Is it true they's suin' them cigarette companies fer causin' people to git cancer?" "Yes, Bubba, sure is true," responded the lawyer. "And now someone is suin' them fast food restaurants fer makin' them fat an' cloggin' their arteries with all them burgers an' fries, is that true, Mista Lawyer?" "Sure is, Bubba." "And that lady sued McDonald's for millions when she was gave that hot coffee that she ordered?" "Yep." "And that football player sued that university when he gradiated and still couldn't read?" "That's right," said the lawyer. "But why are you asking?" Well, I was thinkin' . . . What I want to know is, kin I sue Budweiserfer all them ugly women I slept with?
Just got back into town from a trip to Bismarck, ND and Yuma, AZ. I really enjoyed the bright, hot sun down there and was hard pressed to come back to Detroit. 92 degrees and very dry down there. A nice break from the pre-winter cold of the north country, but the lack of green and no water makes it a place that I could not be content living there. Still, a nice town with friendly people. It's 200 miles from the Phoenix airport, so I got in some fun driving in the new Mustang convertable (Gray with Black top), and on a straight, flat road, well, no comment on how fast I was going. Here are a few pics: First picture is of one of the several ranges of foothills throughout the desert between Yuma and Phoenix. Next picture is of one of the hundreds of Cactus that dot the landscape. Third is Arizona from the air. Very brown indeed!
I'm 49 and married with children (look out Al Bundy)went to college and got a degree, have been fixing electromechanical computer controlled machines for over 25 years (currently in healthcare).To do my job I travel the midwest (OH, MI,NY,PA,MN,WI,) south (NC,SC,TN,LA), and west (AZ,CO,WY,ND). In the 80's lived in NYC while in the US Coast Guard, traveled thru Europe, got married. I had kids in the 90's and went back to school until I got my degree in 2000. Last 9 years things have really come together for me professionally. I have lots of good things in my life, but lingering regrets over paths not taken.Seem to be kind of like a shark, if I quit swimming, I stop breathing. There's always something out there... and I can't stop looking until I find IT (whatever IT is).
