Non Red Dirt Talk:

Simply stated,
it is sagacious to
eschew obfuscation


Cardiac Arrest

And God populated the earth with broccoli and cauliflower and spinach, green and yellow vegetables of all kinds, so Man and Woman would live long and healthy lives.

And Satan created McDonald's. And McDonald's brought forth the 99-cent double cheeseburger. And Satan said to Man, "You want fries with that?" And Man said, "Supersize them." And Man gained 5 pounds.

And God created the healthful yogurt, that woman might keep her figure that man found so fair.

And Satan brought forth chocolate. And Woman gained 5 pounds.

And God said, "Try my crispy fresh salad."

And Satan brought forth Ben and Jerry's. And Woman gained 10 pounds.

And God said, "I have sent thee heart healthy vegetables and olive oil with which to cook them."

And Satan brought forth chicken fried steak so big it needed its own platter.   And Man gained 10 pounds and his bad cholesterol went through the roof.

And God brought forth running shoes and Man resolved to lose those extra pounds.

And Satan brought forth cable TV with remote control so Man would not have to toil to change channels between ESPN and ESPN2. And Man gained another 20 pounds.

And God said, "You're running up the score, Devil."  And God brought forth the potato, a vegetable naturally low in fat and brimming with nutrition.

And Satan peeled off the healthful skin and sliced the starchy center into chips and deep fat fried them. And he created sour cream dip also. And Man clutched his remote control and ate the potato chips swaddled in cholesterol. And Satan saw and said, "It is good." And Man went into cardiac arrest.


Fading Memories

Need Work

Southern breeze way


The World of Mom:

My mom taught me

Never walk a creek when you are hungry


Man walks into a shoe store, and tries on a pair of shoes.

"How do they feel?" asks the sales clerk.

"Well they feel a bit tight," replies the man.

The assistant promptly bends down

and has a look at the shoes and at the man's feet.

"Try pulling the tongue out," the clerk says.

"Well, theyth sthill feelth a bith tighth."



Tin Roof Memories.

For those of you that have slept under panels of tin
Will remember each time the rain would begin
But now it is time for this old country traveler
To hit that red dirt trail back home.

Tomorrow I'll be back
With my digital camera in hand
And if God is willing and the creek don’t rise
I will be looking for new places to roam.

Greasy Burgers

This is a very cool page. I love all the quips and you made sure to include a little of everything. Southern breeze way, yep it sure is. And I most certainly agree with the cardiac arrest. Is why I refrain from those greasy burgers <G>

Just wanted to say that I am certainly enjoying "The World of Mom" That was a wonderful place they lived in, wasn't it? Their wisdom and common sense came from living life....not from reading books.

I think one of the greatest things my mother told me so many times was, "You do the right thing no matter what the other fellow does." Another was, "Your circumstances may be better, but that doesn't make you superior than others."

Of course I don't know about where you live, but where I live alot of the new houses have metal roofs. Alot of old houses are getting new metal roofs. I wonder if they would sound like the old tin roofs or if all the insulation, etc. in newer houses would dull the sound.

Oooops!! Hope I didn't insult you with that note I sent you about tins roofs and how I went on and on about them. In any case, please except my apologies if I had.

Those jokes you've been sending out with your photographs are sooooooo funny! I do hope you don't stop.

On the Roof

When I was first married in '51, we worked for a church -- for that, we lived in a small garage apartment with a tin roof -- I loved to listen to the rain splattering on the roof!

This is cool. I really enjoy seeing these old homesteads, and buildings. Wish they could miraculously be repaired. :-) But they are great just to know they once had occupants who really lived there.
