Okay. Let's see. Where were we when we were last visiting? I'm not sure. It is Thursday, however, and I do bid you welcome here on this September 27, 2012. During my little network outage on Tuesday morning I had to revert to old school. Without the internet my computer is basically crippled. At least that's how it works for me. Nearly every resource I access is online. From Bible tools to audio sermons, news, sports, weather, most music, and everything else imaginable, I am pretty much shut down when the internet is inaccessible. However, I do know how to open my Bible and read it again, for the first time. My word processor works without the internet so I can do myself some typing. I had some sample music in the default media player so I switched that on. So, there I sat, reading my Bible, listening to Beethoven, and typing in my thoughts and ideas into my word processor. For me it was like the old days when the power went out and we lit the kerosene lamp. We kids thought that was great fun. For about ten minutes. But, then we realized there would not be any Pinky Lee, Howdy Doody, or Roy Rogers. "Come on guys, get that power turned back on, and, oh yeah, hurry up please, every second you can!"

"Happy trails to you, until we meet again. Some trails are happy ones, Others are blue. It's the way you ride the trail that counts, Here's a happy one for you." May God bless. Amen. ....More later.

"Success is doing ordinary things extraordinarily well." Jim Rohn, famous entrepreneur, and mentor to Tony Robbins
~ Full disclosure requires that I inform you that as I sit here, at 4:31 a.m., it is a pleasant 58 degrees with the door wide open, hoping I do not get a visit from any wandering wildlife. And before it was all said and done we did hit 56 degrees yesterday morning. My name is Yours Truly and I approved this message. ~
By now you know I work without a net and I also don't use one of those laugh tracks to indicate when it's time for you to chuckle. I must be really out of tune with what society thinks is funny. I have really tried hard to understand what is funny when that laughing outburst is slammed into a TV show, and, more times than not, I don't get it, and I almost always don't think it is funny. What's wrong with me? That's a good question but we neither have enough analyst couches nor the time to work on that one. Maybe I am like the proverbial marching band student where the parents can't help but wonder why all the other kids are out of step. But, I am glad to inform you that it is Friday, September 21, 2012, and I bid you a hearty hello and welcome to our little get together here at the blogger ranch. The good news is how that most of this week is now in our rear view mirror and we can look ahead to our Saturday and Lord Day's Sunday. I know some of the fellows around here sure are hoping that the Texans will see the first half Peyton Manning who threw three interceptions rather than the Peyton Manning who nearly made a miraculous recovery near the end of last Monday night's game. You know. It's their version of that Disney song. I can hear Jiminy Cricket now, "When You Wish Upon a Star."
Don't get me wrong. I very much hope the Texans do well, but, I am no longer that plugged in. I was at one time. I hear them calling names and talking stuff like they know these people personally. I can talk the talk as well but only because I read a lot. A lot of everything. A lot about a lot of stuff. Sometimes, way too much stuff. I heard a fellow the other day talking about how much more you can get done if you totally eliminate any and all things that do not contribute to productive outcomes. Hello? For me that would end up being a huge amount of my day's activities. I recently talked with a friend who is very excited about his granddaughter making the traveling volley ball team. I also have a granddaughter who will soon be playing, but it just so happened I had read that very day something about an outstanding volley ball player and because of that, I was able to exchange some of the digs and kills that reflect upon outstanding play. He was impressed. See what I mean? You just never know when information consumed might become useful. But wait a minute. I think he might think I am a real volley ball expert. I had better do some more reading.

Southern drawl can be described as a gliding diphthongization of stressed vowel. For example, we pronounce “yae-yis” for “yes”. “ti-ahm” for “time”. “ah” for “i”. "Ah'm dyoo home at fahv o'clock” means “I am due home at five o’clock”. (copied)

“Time is passing. Yet, for the United States of America, there will be no forgetting September the 11th. We will remember every rescuer who died in honor. We will remember every family that lives in grief. We will remember the fire and ash, the last phone calls, the funerals of the children. “ - President George W. Bush, November 11, 2001
