11-05-13-My Morning Thoughts: “Almost Presidential” If I say something stupid it doesn’t make me stupid does it? I hear a whole lot of stupid things on the news these days from politicians in congress as well as news media people and I was thinking that when I say something stupid it kind of levels me with a similar playing field being almost presidential in some sort of holier than now congressional minded way…some of these folks really need to listen a lot more intently before they speak…now don’t start yelling cause you may think I’m calling people stupid because I’m not…but we do say some stupid things sometimes…I know I do…plain and simple.
11-04-13-My Morning Thoughts: “My Old Combs” Just got rid of all my combs from the 70’s, not sure why I had them all these years cause they obviously were just taking up space! I wonder if they were lonely or bored or felt unwanted. I mean I really wish I could have put them to better use but it is what it is I guess. Anyway, I have more room in the drawer to start some other kind of collection I won’t use for years I’m sure…very productive day…LOL!...plain and simple.
11-01-13-My Morning Thoughts: “les than 10% could answer these correctly”? We know its Friday right? We always know when it’s Friday…and everybody knows that Thomas Jefferson was the first president and that Christopher Columbus sailed from China to the Americas on the Titanic (before it sank) and that the model T Ford was invented by President Gerald Ford and that the west was won by Jim West & Art Gordon and that…never mind…at least we always know when its Friday…have a great weekend all and remember, even if you’re not reading about history your still making history…although reading a little about history helps a lot with making history…not sure that makes sense…I’ll read it latter tonight to see if I boarder on the fool or not this fine morning…which is very possible any given day…plain and simple.
10-31-13-My Morning Thoughts: “My Halloween Baby” I would just like to thank my in-laws for the wonderful job they did raising my wife to be the amazing woman she is…being born on Halloween and probably a witch (easy now…a good witch) that put a spell on me (a love potion #9 spell) that I hope never wears off by the way…because she takes my breath away every time I see her…and all the time and effort she makes to help others, others that she may not even know…goes way beyond the syllabus of life. Happy Birthday Carrie, you are one special lady and I’m so lucky to have you to share my life with…plain and simple.
10-30-13-My Morning Thoughts: You know I get a lot of behind the scene messages and reply’s from my morning thoughts folks that are kept confidential because some just don’t like to put their opinions and feelings out there. They use my e-mail, text, phone, websites, twitter, YouTube and sometimes I get hand written notes in the mail box (now that last spot is kind a scary sometimes)…but I must say I totally respect their wishes and understand why they keep their opinions out of the mainstream but I am very grateful they share their thoughts with me too…under the mainstream, if you will. Whenever you can converse about things, discuss other issues, hear different opinions and learn from others, about their experiences and traditions…how-can-that-not-be-a meaningful path throughout life…well I think it is…and I thank you…plain and simple.
10-29-13-My Morning Thoughts: Maybe? Do you think we all will get along someday? Is there a chance that major disagreement could still become amicable? I would think that compromise be obliged to become a great deal more widespread first. I’m certain that the billions of people in the world would get along just fine once they all had a chance to realize first hand that were all the same or at least want and like similar things…I don’t know, it’s a pretty naive way to think I presume but I can’t help to imagine that if everyone had a chance to sit around a campfire with some favorite food and drink while listening to some acoustic music and real conversations it could all work out…just fine…plain and simple.
10-28-13-My Morning Thoughts: “The Walk Home” Those of you that had the pleasure of walking to school back in the day…do you remember the hurry up and get going mornings? Trying to get ready and mom making lunch and throwing it in a paper bag while your friends already at the door waiting for you?...I know you remember this!...but…on the flipside to that you must remember how it took you twice as long to walk home…mainly because you had nothing to do but fool around and play and talk and gaze at clouds and throw stones and kick cans and jump over sidewalk cracks and get chased out of yards you were cutting threw and stopping in stores without money and…well…what ever your little heart wanted to do you just did on the walk home from school…basically because…you could…plain and simple.
10-25-13-My Morning Thoughts: How do you think the president’s we’ve had in our lifetime will be remembered by the generations that come after? Do you think it will be their policies or their character or could they be remembered by specific situations that may have defined their presidency for them?...history can be just as harsh as it can be pleasant and history can also take a long time to get it right…if ya know what I mean…it is a crazy job though, because no matter what you do as president…there’s always the other side’s opinion and there always will be…enjoy the weekend…plain and simple.
10-24-13-My Morning Thoughts: “Experience” Every day is an experience and with each day of experience we become more proficient by understanding our strengths and weaknesses…and whilst understanding…we gain wisdom…and on that note my wisdom tells me I have to get to work so I can pay for all the material things that I didn’t really need in the first place…crazy isn’t it…plain and simple.
10-23-13-My Morning Thoughts: “Imagine” “All we are saying is give peace a chance”…”reach out and touch somebody’s hand”…”you are so beautiful to me”…”let’s get together and it will be all right”…”heart of gold”…”summer breeze”…”Imagine”…maybe we need more songs like this again to put this weary world back on the right track…plain and simple.
