Not a dry eye in the house

Here is a gal that can sure sing up a storm. I have to admit … I can’t understand a word she says but still … I had to listen to the end, as I am thinking you will. GW

Just for you

I am pretty sure my Cousin John will like this one as I do. LOL The ending might be a bit hard for some to understand. That is if you’re a tea toddler. Anyway’s giver a listen!

Great Video

More folks should be thinking about what this video is saying. Especially today with this virus going around. Buy Canadian Folks when ever it’s possible. My wife and I have been promoting this for all our lives. Some listen but most don’t. But that’s not saying we can’t change, which will be much healthier for us all and along with that, it will give our farmers a reason for getting up in the morning. Give it some thought. All we have to lose is our country if we don’t, which is happening at a very fast rate. GW

What one says

Here is another that got my attention. I wonder how many folks out there has gotten themselves into this predicament from time to time through life. Read On.

Little Johnny watched his daddy’s car pass by the school playground and go into the woods. Curious, he followed the car and saw Daddy and Aunt Jane in a passionate embrace.
Little Johnny found this so exciting that he could hardly contain himself as he ran home and started to tell his mother. ‘Mummy, I was at the playground and I saw Daddy’s car go into the woods with Aunt Jane. I went back to look and he was giving Aunt Jane a big kiss, and then he helped her take off her shirt. Then Aunt Jane helped Daddy take his pants off, then Aunt Jane…’ At this point Mummy cut him off and said, ‘Johnny, this is such an interesting story, let’s save the rest of it for supper time. I want to see the look on Daddy’s face when you tell it tonight.’
At the dinner table that evening, Mummy asked little Johnny to tell his story.
Johnny started his story, ‘I was at the playground and I saw Daddy’s car go into the woods with Aunt Jane. I went back to look and he was giving Aunt Jane> a big kiss, then he helped her take off her shirt. Then Aunt Jane helped Daddy take his pants off, then Aunt Jane and Daddy started doing the same thing that Mummy and Uncle Bill used to do when Daddy was away on the oil rigs.’
Mummy fainted!
Moral:
Sometimes you need to just shut the … up and listen to the whole story before you interrupt!

Makes Sense to me

Now don’t you all get to thinking I am getting religious LOL as I surely am not. That’s the least thing I would do. LOL But every once in a while something comes along that gets my attention. Read On!

HYMN No.365

A minister was completing a temperance sermon.
With great emphasis he said,
‘If I had all the beer in The world, I’d take it and pour it into the river.’

With even greater emphasis he said,
‘And if I had All the wine in the world, I’d take it and pour it into the river.’
And then finally, shaking his fist in the air, he Said,
‘And if I had all the whisky in the world,
I’d take it and pour it into the river.’
Sermon complete, he sat down.
The hymn-leader stood very cautiously and announced
With a smile, nearly laughing,

‘For our closing hymn, let us sing
Hymn No.365,

‘Shall We Gather at the River.’
See you at the river.

Good or bad?

COVID-19: High-dose flu vaccine intended first for some of us seniors!

Well the way I look at things, is that we seniors will be the Ginny pigs. Myself I kind of think it should be tested on the healthy first, just in case there are issues down the road a ways. But in saying that … I suppose they think they are doing the right thing. I kind of think, a mask is a better option and doing what is right should be priority for a while, once it does come out. Again my opinion only.

Thursday Morning Humour

Not for the mild at heart!!!

A lady, about 8 months pregnant, got on a bus and sat down. She then noticed the man opposite her was smiling at her. She immediately moved to another seat.
This time the smile turned into a grin, so she moved again. The man seemed more amused.
When on the fourth move, the man burst out laughing, she complained to the driver, and he had the man arrested.
The case came up in court.
The judge asked the man (about 20 years old) what he had to say for himself.
The man replied, ‘Well your Honour, it was like this:
When the lady got on the bus, I couldn’t help but notice her condition.
She sat down under a sign that said, ‘The Double Mint Twins are coming’ and I grinned.
Then she moved and sat under a sign that said, ‘Logan’s Liniment will reduce the swelling,’ and I had to smile.
Then she placed herself under a deodorant sign that said, ‘William’s Big Stick Did the Trick,’ and I could hardly contain myself.

But, Your Honour … when she moved the fourth time and sat under a sign that said, ‘Goodyear Rubber could have prevented this Accident!’ I just lost it.’

‘CASE DISMISSED!’

Great Song Says a lot

Can’t Beat This Song. Says what a lot of people are afraid to say. One of our favourites. Alan Jackson is my favourite singer and George Strait is my lovely wife’s. But then again …. George is a great name!!!!

Don’t fool with us old folks

For Old Folks Only … as it does have one word that might offend the weak. LOL But it does remind me of another old friend of mine. Ed. LOL Lives in Lakeland Florida. Every time I saw him I would say. You Packin” Ed? LOL He would say. Yep, I sure am. You know? He was too. 90 Years Old.

Free to good home

Here is an ad that someone put in the paper once:
Free to a good home. Dog. 6 months old. House broken. Half poodle, half sneaky neighbour’s dog. Hateful little thing. Bites.

One of Many

I was browsing through some old things and came across some business cards when Ruth and I owned the Tire Service Business many years ago. I built that business up and then sold it. Was a great time in my life but a lot of work in all kinds of weather. We had two service trucks on the road with power tailgates and air jacks which made things nice. Dangerous job though.

Cost To Rebuild A Model T Ford 1928

Here is an old post card of what it would cost to fix up an old Model T Ford many years ago.  Click Picture To Enlarge. 

With that this should be taken into consideration.  Things seem to be much cheaper back then but consider what wages were. Considering that, things are about the same. The average wage in 1912 was $500/$700 a year. Then there was world war one and wages spiked to an average of $5000 a year in 1928 (the year of the  post card ) All and all, prices are about the same percentage of a pay check. The model T was worth more in 1928 than what it cost new in 1912 but still pretty low.
