Wow, I haven't posted on here in years. Isn't weird how one day you just stop doing something you had been doing pretty regularly for quite awhile. And you never know when you are doing something for the last time. That is especially true when you look back through your childhood. For years I spent a week at my cousin's farm in the summer. They were such good times. I remember eating Daisies (they were like Bugles) and drinking really strong ice tea out in an old feed wagon in the trees. It was a hot summer day and I was so happy playing with my cousin. Looking back, I don't remember my last overnight stay at the farm. It just ended. There are lots of times like that as I review my life. So many times raising my kids that we would do certain things quite routinely. We used to go to Ihlen swimming in the summer, a lot. When was our last trip? I'm glad I don't know when I do something for the last time, it would ruin it. But it is sad all the same. The years go so swiftly by.

Not Knowing

I am reviewing a movie today. Last weekend we saw "Knowing" starring Nick Cage. I will not elaborate other than to say it stunk, badly. The last movie I saw that was this bad was "AI" starring Jude Law. "Look Teddy! It's a lock of Mommy's hair!"

Happy St. Patricks Day!

Happy St. Patricks Day to all! Even though our parade was last Saturday there will still be wearin' 'o the green today and I would really like to find a nice corned beef stew for lunch. In the spirit of the day, I'd like to share an Irish joke -

A man stumbles up to the only other patron in a bar and asks if he could buy him a drink.

"Why of course" comes the reply.
The first man then asks:
"Where are you from?"

"I'm from Ireland" replies the second man.

The first man responds: "You don't say, I'm from Ireland too! Let's have another round to Ireland!"

"Of course," replies the second man.

Curious, the first man then asks: "Where in Ireland are you from?"

"Dublin," comes the reply.

"I can't believe it," says the first man. "I'm from Dublin too! Let's have another drink to Dublin."

"Of course," replies the second man.

Curiosity again strikes and the first man asks: "What school did you go to?"

"Saint Marys," replies the second man. "I graduated in '62."

"This is unbelieveable!" the first man says. " I went to Saint Marys and I graduated in '62, too!"

About that time in comes one of the regulars and sits down at the bar. "Whats been going on?" he asks the bartender.

"Nothing much," replies the bartender. "The O'Malley twins are drunk again."

An Historic Day

President-elect Obama gets inaugurated in less than an hour. It is a day I never thought I would see in my lifetime, a black man is president of the United States. When you look at how far the nation has progressed since Rosa Parks refused to give up her seat, it is nothing short of amazing. Good Luck to you President Obama. Our nation needs a healing touch to guide us through these times of unprecedented troubles. You have my support and you will need the support of all Americans to get through this.
