Why Guns, Fools, Idiots, Children, Alcohol, (or any combination thereof with Guns) DON'T MIX!!

But first......

From the Chief of Police:

I get irritated when people come down on our police officers, saying that they don't care. Well, here is a story that shows not all cops are in that category.

The Pascagoula , MS Police Department reported finding a man's body last Saturday in the Pascagoula River near the I-10 Bridge. The dead man's name would not be released until his family had been notified.

The victim apparently drowned due to excessive beer consumption while visiting "someone" in Pascagoula . He was wearing black fishnet stockings, a red garter belt, a pink G-string, purple lipstick, and an Obama T-shirt.

The Police removed the Obama T-shirt to spare his family any unnecessary embarrassment.

Police do care.

Thank You

Wednesday Wanks




A little old lady from Wisconsin had worked in and around her family dairy farms since she was old enough to walk, with hours of hard work and little compensation.

When canned Carnation Milk became available in grocery stores in the 1940s, she read an advertisement offering $5,000 for the best slogan.

The producers wanted a rhyme beginning With 'Carnation Milk is best of all.'

She thought to herself, I know everything there is to know about milk and dairy farms. I can do this! She sent in her entry, and several weeks later, a black car pulled up in front of her house.

A large man got out, knocked on her door and said, "Ma'am,.....The president of Carnation milk absolutely LOVED your entry.....So much, in fact, that we are here to award you $1,000 even though we will not be able to use it for our advertisements!"

He did, however, have one printed up to hang on his office wall.

(Here it is:)

True story!

First two Flight lessons for my granddaughter Paige

Well Sir, Cookie began flying in an old J-3 Piper Cub out of the old Cicero Airport when I was 12 years (1956). I loved it then, I love it now. Earlier this Summer, around June or so, my granddaughter Paige expressed interest in wanting to try her hand at flying, and as you might imagine, Grandpa was elated!!

So, we got her first flight lesson in a Cessna 172 ( first two photygraffs below) out of Waypoint Aviation located at Hancock International Airport at Syracuse NY. Her friend "Cam" was allowed to go along fer free. When she landed after that flight she was just a grin'n and a a grin'n frum ear t'ear. She absolutely loved it and expressed great interest in wanting to continue fly'n.

Now Sir, yesterday, Saturday the 8th of October, I had arranged for a nice surprize fer Paige at the Hamilton, NY airport near Colgate University, a Glider flight lesson. The weather was absolutely perfect with beautiful clear blue skies and 81 degree tempeatues.

In this first photo she's assisting with a pre-flight check of the tow plane.

In this photo, her Mom, Sue watches anxiously as both planes start down the runway on take off.

...a great shot of the tow plane as they begin take off.

Come'n in fer a land'n.

Although she stated that she very much enjoyed the flight and the lesson, she later informed me that she preferred powered flight better and would like to pursue that avenue further. I informed her that after I win the "Mega-Millions" lottery I'll help her with the cost of the lessons.

Fer any of you folks around the central New York area, we booked both flights at Waypoint Aviation, one in Syracuse, one in Hamilton, and I would highly recommend them if'n yur a think'n on get'n flight lesons fer one of yur loved on.

In church on Sunday, I overheard the little old lady in the pew next to me saying a short private prayer. It was so sweet and sincere that I just had to share it with you: 

Dear Lord,
These past couple of years have been tough.... You have taken my favorite Actor Patrick Swayze, my favorite actress Elizabeth Taylor, my favorite Cowboy James Arness, my favorite athlete Bob Feller, my favorite singer Lena Horne and my favorite salesman Billy Mays.

I just wanted you to know that my favorite president is Barack Obama.

A little Sunday Swing fer y'all. "The Swing Girls"

Here be a little sumthin t'start yur Sunday off with a great uplifting, foot tap'n beat. "The Japanese Swing Girls"

This one starts a little slow but definately picks up!!


"The Rabbi and the Cow".

The only cow in a small town in Poland stopped giving milk. The people did some research and found that they could buy a cow from Moscow for 2,000 rubles, or one from Minsk for 1,000 rubles. Being frugal, they bought the cow from Minsk.

The cow was wonderful. It produced lots of milk all the time, and the people were amazed and very happy. They decided to acquire a bull to mate with the cow and produce more cows like it. Then they would never have to worry about the milk supply again.

They bought a bull and put it in the pasture with their beloved cow. However, whenever the bull came close to the cow, the cow would move away. No matter what approach the bull tried, the cow would move away from the bull and he could not succeed in his quest.

The people were very upset and decided to ask their wise rabbi, what to do. They told the rabbi what was happening. "Whenever the bull approaches our cow, she moves away. If he approaches from the back, she moves forward.

When he approaches her from the front, she backs off. An approach from the side and she just walks away to the other side."

The rabbi thought about this for a minute and asked, "Did you buy this cow from Minsk?"

The people were dumbfounded, since they had never mentioned where they had gotten the cow. "You are truly a wise rabbi," they said.

"How did you know we got the cow from Minsk?"

The rabbi answered sadly, "My wife is from Minsk."
