Merry Christmas all


‘Twas the night before Christmas and all through the trailer
Not a creature was stirrin’ ‘cept a redneck named Taylor.
His first name was Bubba, Joe was his middle,
And a-runnin’ down his chin was a trickle of spittle.

His socks, they were hung by the chimney with care,
And therefore there was a foul stench in the air.
From out in the yard there came such a noise
That Bubba got scared and rousted the boys.

There was Rufus, 12; Jim Bob was 11;
Dud goin’ on 10; Otis was 7.
John, George and Chucky were 5,4, and 3:
The twins were both girls so they just let them be.

They jumped in their overalls, no need for a shirt,
Threw a hat on each head, then turned with a jerk.
They ran to the gun rack that hung on the wall.
There were 17 shotguns; they grabbed them all.

Bubba said to the young’uns, “Now hesh up ya’ll!
The last thing we wanna do is wake up yer Maw.”
Maw was expecting and needed her sleep,
So out they crept out the door without making a peep.

They all looked around, and then they all spit.
The young’uns asked Bubba, “Paw, what is it?”
Bubba just stared; he could not say a word.
This was just like all of the stories he’d heard.

It was Santy Claus up on the roof, darn tootin’
But the boys didn’t know; they was about to start shootin’!
They aimed their shotguns and nearly made a mistake
That would have resulted in venison steak.

Bubba hollered out, “Don’t shoot, boys!”
That’s Santy Claus and he’s brought us some toys.
The dogs were a-barkin’ and a-raisin’ cain,
And Bubba whistled, and shouted, and called them by name.

“Down, Spot! Shut up Bullet! Quiet, Pete and Roscoe!
Git, Turnip and Tater and Sam and old Joe!”
“Git down from that porch! Git down off that wall!
Quit shakin the trailer, or you’ll make Santy fall!”

The dogs kept a-barkin’ and wouldn’t shut up,
And they trampled poor Pete who was only a pup.
Santy opened his bag, and threw out some toys.
Bubba got most, but left a few for the boys.

From up on the roof Santa heaved a great sigh.
Since the guns had been dropped he just might not die.
He jumped in his sleigh, told his reindeer to hurry.
The trailer started to wobble Santa started to worry.

Just as the reindeer got into the air,
The trailer collapsed, but Bubba didn’t care.
He was busy lookin’ at all his new toys.
Then a thought hit him, and he said to the boys:

“Go check on yer Maw, make sure she’s all right.
That roof fallin’ on her could-a hurt just a might.”
But Maw was OK, and the girls were too.
They fixed up the trailer; it looked good as new.

And as for Bubba, he liked Old St. Nick,
But Santa thought Bubba was a pure-in-tee hick!
Bubba had a nice Christmas, and the boys did, too.
And the Taylors wish a Merry Christmas to you!

Mark Dice : Donald Trump’s Funniest Insults and Comebacks

Donald Trump’s funnest moments from the 2016 campaign. A compilation of his best insults, comebacks, and statements. Not only is he rich and smart, but he’s also funny as heck too. Here’s the funniest things Trump has said about the media, Hillary Clinton, and his critics.

I’m a supporter of President Donald Trump. While I respect the man completely, I can’t help getting a few good laughs out of some of the things he says on the air.

What Real Success is all about

Many think success means getting everything I want. And we say, that’s what dead is, and there is no such thing as that kind of dead. Success is not being done; not being complete. Success is still dreaming and feeling positive in the unfolding.

All is Well

If you know that all is well, you know all you need to know. And if you know life is supposed to be fun, you know more than almost anybody else knows. And if you know that the way you feel is your indicator of how connected you are to Source, then you know that which only a handful of Deliberate Creators, respective to the total population, really know. The beasts all know it.

Your animals know that all is well. Your animals live in the moment. They understand the power of their now. They expect the Universe to yield to them. They don’t worry or fret or conjure or make laws or rules or try to regulate. They are Pure Positive Energy. Your beasts vibrate more on the Energy scale of contentment than of passion. Their desire was set forth from Nonphysical, and continues to be set forth by those, like you, who want Energy balance, who want sustenance.

The difference between the beast and the human is that the beast is more general in its intent. The human is usually less blended, usually less allowing of the Energy to flow, but is more specific. And that is why the human is seen to be the Creator while the beast is more the balancer of Energy.

Do you have it all wrong? – Attracting the life you want is an inside job.

happiness causes success

Source: Do you have it all wrong? – Attracting the life you want is an inside job.

This is something that I tell myself daily.  Most days it doesn’t take very much motivation to put me in a positive and happy train of thought.  Other days I would rather fight with a polar bear than have to deal with having a happy thought.  On those days it just takes me a little bit longer to talk myself into a good place.

The Fate of a Snowflake

Snowflakes are now claiming that being called snowflakes is damaging to their mental health. Personally I think they should have been thinking about their mental health a long time before this. These are the people who became extremely upset when Donald Trump was elected president. The election is over, President Trump has been the President for nearly a year, Trump won, Hillary Lost, get over it!

What ever happened to the time when a snowflake was something that fell out of the sky during the winter? Where did this bunch of panty-waste, overly sensitive adult children come from? Why get so upset over something that you have absolutely no control over?

Hillary loves seeing all of this snowflake behaviour. It’s the American family coming apart at the seams. I couldn’t believe the people who had their children terrorized thinking that we were going to be in a nuclear war. Intentionally traumatizing your children is the ultimate level of child abuse as far as I’m concerned. Children are going to find more than enough situations in later life to traumatize themselves with if they are really that weak minded.

Come on you pathetic bunch of wimps! Stop fighting the President for no reason, and start doing something to make your America a great place again. President Trump is in office and there is nothing you can do to change that. The people who are pushing to impeach President Trump are in for a sad awakening come election time when they have to fight to hold their seats in congress.

Hillary Clinton an Angel? Not Likely!

So I wake up this morning and turn on FOX News to see a tree top angel of Hillary Clinton.  Come on, get real!  Portraying Hillary Clinton as an angel in any way, shape, or form, is really pushing the issue.  One of the reporters said that these Hillary Angels were selling for around $925.00.


More Random Junk

There is another notice hung up by the mail boxes saying that today the manager will be coming into our apartments again to look anything that the construction people need to finish up on. I thought they used that same reason for the last 2 or 3 times they wanted to come in. I think it’s getting a little ridiculous. Furthermore, all of the people living in the building agree. I don’t believe most of what AEOA tells me, and I really don’t have a lot of love for management companies as it is. Let’s see what happens with this.

It’s cold as hell outside again this morning. I went over to Holiday for donuts this morning and damn near froze on the way. The girl on duty this morning was just getting things turned up as I was getting there.

I went to Target yesterday and bought an Alexa Show unit. I plan to add a few light control modules, but that won’t been for a little while.

Hopefully today will be a little more exciting day than the last few days. Here’s keeping my fingers crossed.
