EHR: Things People Pass Around

This EHR (Email Humor Received) share will go without acknowledgment of its sender. It just wouldn’t be the OF brotherly-blog thing to do after all. But know this well: does have some standards to live up to, by, or around. In the mean time, oh my big ol’ belly hurts from laughing too much!  Continue reading “EHR: Things People Pass Around”

Life Lesson No. ???

There have been only a few television shows that strike at my core. As my family will attest, one of them (actually multiple series) has been annoying to the entire family – Star Trek (Kirk, Picard, Sisko, Janeway, Archer) – but then they only needed to get beyond the amateurness of acting and become one with the story line to truly appreciate the brilliance of the series.

Another favorite of mine is All in the Family. I love Archie. He reminds me of today’s right-wing Republicans that can never say a good or positive thing about…well, anything unless it deals with the increasing size of their wallet. One can only laugh in agreement or at the absurdity of the claims – there’s no middle ground with Archie.

But perhaps my all time favorite is The Andy Griffith Show. Even though I much-prefer the black & white, Don Knotts shows, never was an episode (black & white or color) aired that didn’t tell a life story or give a life lesson. And when Andy was doing the talking, it was golden…espicially if a very young Opie was at the receiving end of his lessons. Andy, the pillar of the community, the rock of reason, the class of the class, the good ‘ol boy that can relate to the bubba, is always bringing common-sense justice to the lives and purpose to the day’s events of Mayberry citizens .

We all should have 10-minutes of fame sometime

If you’re not in church Sunday morning, first look to the sky for dark clouds before stepping outside for the paper, then tune into HGTV Landscaper’s Challenge (8:00 a.m. central time). Tune in and/or check your local listing. My faithful bloggers wanting to know a little something about what I do for a day job, the girth of my waist line, wish to comment on the thinning lid, and be amused by my goofy looks can tune into that show for a good time. Now I’m not one that is comfortable tooting my own horn but when you get your 10 minutes of TV time (and its not because of an illegal action), blast away and tell somebody, anybody, and everybody….
