Two precious gifts on my 63rd.

1: A gift of love

From my great niece Tyra M. G. -- a weaving - hot pad/coaster/wall hanging, by her own hands. It will hold a special place in the museum of great gifts I have received over the many years.

2:  A gift of hate

From someone I have known for over 30 years....I believe old age has taken some toll. I hope that's all it is.----the gift, , , what it actually feels like (in a very small way) to be subjected to racism because of the color of my skin/race.
    I was amazed at how much it hurt, but also how short the hurt lasted. I think you always have to consider the source and their frame of reference, their upbringing, their environment, the ignorance and lack of first hand experience with people of different races/colors/cultures.
    This gift has made me take a look at my own prejudices.
The words I use.
Descriptions I use.
Jokes I tell or laugh at.
Things I have done in the past, and that I won't do in the future.......

Maybe it isn't too late to teach this "old dog" new tricks.

I will strive to be a better man, in the little time I have left, amongst this so diverse human race.

A billion $$

I've heard we send a billion dollars to Egypt every year. How's that working out for us? I've also heard it would cost us about a billion dollars to put storm shelters at all the elementary schools in Oklahoma...I would prefer that, at least we would have something to show for it.

Build the pipeline.
Drill baby drill.
Fracker till she blows.
Let the Middle East take care of itself,,,,,or pave it.

A quote I like, but don't know who by

"There is no profit in trying to convince a moron he's an idiot."

Shitty Drive to work II

Delivering materials to the Revenue one evening, about 8:00. When they need them, they get them.

It's only been 4 years.

I'll try to be better this time. I doubt if anybody missed me anyway......and well, I just didn't have much to say. Still don't but if I start, who knows where I might end up.
