random thoughts for thursday june 28th, 2012


we begin with sad news…our prayers and thoughts go out to everyone in our country who are suffering from the wildfires….i am thinking mostly about my friends in the COLORADO SPRINGS, COLORADO area…..as you know, two weeks ago, we were out there on vacation, and now the area that we were in is on fire, and many people have lost their homes……

and yesterday we found out that some good friends were evacuated from their home, and the fire is less than five miles from their home….we were actually in their beautiful home for supper while were out there……i can’t even imagine what those folks are going thru…keep them in your prayers….

here are a  picture from that area in COLORADO….

i’m sure many of you have friends and neighbors who are suffering out there as well….we pray for them as well….

case in point….

a young friend of mine told me recently, “i can’t get a good night’s sleep because my phone keeps going off from people texting me.”

5.  CHARLIE SHEEN’S new show “ANGER MANAGEMENT” has the season premiere tonight at 8:00 our time on FX….how ironic is it that it has that title and CHARLIE stars in it…some roles are just meant to be……

7.  i saw a recent poll of sports stars wives and who they would love to “cheat” with…is that what this world has come to?  we now have SURVEYS talking about people CHEATING?  i’m not too sure this world will ever turn around and head back in the right direction ever again….

8.  according to a NBC/WALL STREET JOURNAL poll, PRESIDENT OBAMA and MITT ROMNEY are in a dead heat for presidency….they are running neck and neck in the “ARE THESE SERIOUSLY THE ONLY CHOICES” category…..

9.  researchers are getting closer to understanding how apes think, and what they are thinking about…..and amazingly apes are smarter than humans…mainly because they don’t watch ‘THE KARDASHIANS.”

After 35 years of marriage, a husband and wife came for counseling. When
asked what the problem was, the wife went into a passionate, painful tirade
listing every problem they had ever had in the years they had been married.
On and on and on: neglect, lack of intimacy, emptiness, loneliness, feeling
unloved and unlovable, an entire laundry list of unmet needs she had endured.
Finally, after allowing this for a sufficient length of time, the therapist
got up, walked around the desk and after asking the wife to stand, embraced
and kissed her passionately as her husband watched with a raised eyebrow.
The woman shut up and quietly sat down as though in a daze. The therapist
turned to the husband and said, ‘this is what your wife needs at least 3
times a week. Can you do this?’
‘Well, I can drop her off here on Mondays and Wednesdays, but on Fridays, I fish.’

6.  man, it’s great to see some of the roads getting patched up….the old WARNER road is tarred from ditch to ditch in some places, and there are places where the tar is even better than the actual road….i feel sorry for those that work on our highways…it’s a thankless job and you’re always having angry people to deal with…..i will just say to you guys and girls….GREAT JOB..KEEP IT UP….

9.  CONDOLEEZZA RICE said she’s not interested in being MITT ROMNEY’S vice president because she hates politics so much….heck, she didn’t even run for student council president when she was in school….and come to think of it, student council presidents actually have more duties than the vice president….

10.  a new report find that vision problems are increasing among AMERICANS…most of them caused by the big video screen at MADONNA concerts showing her flashing her sagging body parts.


A man told the ringmaster that he was interested in joining the circus as a lion tamer. The ringmaster asked if he had any experience and the man said, “Why, yes. My father was one of the most famous lion tamers in the world, and he taught me everything he knew.”
     “Really?” said the ringmaster. “Did he teach you how to make a lion jump through a flaming hoop?”
     “Yes he did,” the man replied.
     “And did he teach you how to have six lions form a pyramid?”
     “Yes he did,” the man replied.
     “And have you ever stuck your head in a lion’s mouth?”
     “Just once,” the man replied.
     The ringmaster asked, “Why only once?”
     And the man said, “I was looking for my father.”
