random thoughts for monday dec. 29th, 2008

HAPPY 45TH ANNIVERSARY TO MY MOM AND DAD IN PIERPONT….I LOVE YOU GUYS…..

********************************************************************

HEY, IT’S THE END OF YEAR CLEARANCE ON HOT TUBS AT CLEAR BLUE RETREAT IN ABERDEEN….WAIT UNTIL YOU SEE THE PRICES…IF YOU’VE EVER THOUGHT ABOUT A HOT TUB, RIGHT NOW IS THE TIME TO BUY….CLEAR BLUE RETREAT, SOUTH MAIN, IN THE OLD DEPOT BUILDING IN ABERDEEN.

1.  i trust that you all had a marvelous christmas holiday…i know we did….we went to church in hecla christmas eve (see below), then we went home for supper and gift opening.  christmas day we spent at my brother’s at richmond lake, (see below), and saturday we had christmas at jeannie’s sisters near grenville. (see below).  ha ha

2.  we had a superb christmas eve service at st. john’s in hecla wednesday night….i sang a song called “joseph’s song”, which gives me goosebumps every time i hear it….and speaking of goosebumps, the candlelight service during “silent night” almost makes me cry.

3.  we had a wonderful time with my family on christmas day…the funny part of the day was when one of my brothers left five pounds of shaved ham out in the garage, and both of my other brother’s dogs at the ham….there went our supper…ha ha

4.  saturday was christmas with jeannie’s family.  we had a blast….the highlight for me was my very first time playing ‘GUITAR HERO’.  i’ve avoided playing it, but it was super fun.  look out tyler and mitchell, there’s a new guitar king on the horizon…NOT…

5.  another thing about christmas…i was proud of myself, i never overate at any meal…..usually i go back for seconds and this year i didn’t at all…..and by the way, i’m going to shed 20-25 pounds in 2009 if it kills me….and hopefully it doesn’t….

6.  we got the boys a wii for christmas….man oh man, is that thing fun…..i’m going to be the very first person to die of a heart attack playing a video game..ha ha….i think ‘bowling’ is the most fun of all.

7.  what a day for football yesterday…THE VIKINGS ARE IN THE PLAYOFFS…YEAH….i think that if the vikings get their entire act together, they could be very dangerous in the postseason….AND HOW ABOUT THOSE PHILADELPHIA EAGLES…they DESTROYED the dallas cowboys yesterday and nobody was happier than i was…..plus my feeble redskins lost to the 49’ers……i’m glad our season is over….we went 8-8 with a brand new coach which is not bad….it’s just that we started so strong and ended so horribly.

8.  wednesday is new year’s eve….there’s drinking, partying, dancing and carousing…or as lindsay lohan calls it, “WEDNESDAY.”

9.  presidential transistion insiders say that barrack o’bama could decriminalize marijuana…..hmm…that’s funny, because i’ve been wondering what o’bama’s has been smoking when he let his mother in law move into the white house.

10.  JOKE OF THE DAY….

A guy was at the State Fair one day, and decided to visit the livestock
section. He saw this farmer there and his pig with only three legs. This was
really weird, so he asked him, “Excuse me, why does your pig only have three
legs?”
    The farmer replied, “Well, this pig here’s name is Peewee, and lemme tell
you a story about him. One day, I was out on my tractor when something went
wrong and the tractor accidentally got turned over. I was going to be crushed
and would have died, ‘cept Peewee here ran over and dragged me out. He saved my
life.”
    And the guy said, “WOW! That’s amazing! But why does he only have three
legs?”
    And the farmer said, “Well, lemme tell you a story. My son was fishing in
the pond when all of a sudden, he fell right in. And somehow, his foot got
trapped in a reed in the pond. He would’ve drowned to death if Peewee hadn’t ran
outside, untangled him, dragged him out from the pond, and applied
Peewee-to-mouth resuscitation. He saved his life.”
    And the guy said, “WOW! That’s amazing! But why does he only have three
legs?”
    And the farmer said, “Well, lemme tell you a story. My daughter was getting
water from the well. All of a sudden, she fell right in! And she screamed and
screamed, but no one could hear her! She would’ve died, ‘cept Peewee here ran
outside and rescued her. He saved her life.”
    And the guy said, “WOW! That’s amazing! But why does he only have three
legs?!”
    And the farmer said, “Well, a pig that special you can’t eat all at once.”

IT’S GOOD TO BE BACK TO WORK…ENJOY YOUR MONDAY….
