Hee Hee Hee; Holly, I love it! Little boy is gonna be a problem teen for sure - but I love it! There's not enough people out there who question authority!! As a kid of the 60's-70's - that very premise seems to be, lost! This is worrisome to me living in a "free country" (Listen to me go on & on...yadda yadda, blah blah blah!) I know; "My country; love or leave it"...Sorry, I never had the money or the desire to leave. I always thought the rich-kids were going to have their day of reckoning. I never had a godfather that helped me through the process of getting a job or protected me once I was there...or even an uncle who could "pull strings" to get me into a union. But now THEIR day has come and ME "Joe Taxpayer" pulls him out...& where the heck IS the money actually going...except that "Joe Punk" doesn't have to sell his home in the Hamptons...I'm sick... I've spent the better part of my life living much like that crafty little boy! Am I rich, no. Am I debt-free, I'm on top of things.(for now) I own 3 cars, a home & all the insurances + amenities up to date. (Verizon package, 4 cell phones, life, health & homeowners insurances)
Aren't quite a few of us (even though we be irreverent) just like this lad? (OK,crucify me...and call me another pinko democrat..to that I'd say you idiot. I know only too many people in NY State, Vermont, N.H., Maine, Michigan, Ohio etc that have gone through what I have and aren't very much ahead (if at all) where I am at this point in out lives...)
I guess what I'm sayin' here is this sounds like another "pity the hillbilly, or "laugh at the hillbilly kid" kind of joke & I think we ALL beter get a whole lot less judgemental...and if some "all full of himself" game warden starts tellin my son he just might qbreak his arm or leg, I hope to the Almighty He has the sense to tell him what to kiss; especially iof that is all his family is going to eat (hopefully) for the hoilday meal...!
God...what a rant...MAY THE GOOD LORD BLESS YOU ALL & YOUR FAMILIES IN THIS HOLIDAY SEASON!!
All the Best! Jim
"We can't control the wind, but we can adjust our sails"
A game warden was driving down the road when he came upon a young boy carrying a wild turkey under his arm.
He stopped and asked the boy, 'Where did you get that turkey?'
The boy replied, 'What turkey?'
The game warden said, 'That turkey you're carrying under your arm.'
The boy looks down and said, 'Well, lookee here, a turkey done roosted under my arm!'
The game warden said, 'Now look, you know turkey season is closed, so whatever you do to that turkey, I'm going to do to you.
If you break his leg, I'm gonna break your leg. If you break his wing, I'll break your arm. Whatever you do to him, I'll do to you. So, what are you gonna do with him?'
The little boy said, 'I guess I'll just kiss his butt and let him go!'
May your stuffing be tasty May your turkey plump, May your potatoes and gravy Have never a lump. May your yams be delicious And your pies take the prize, And may your Thanksgiving dinner Stay off your thighs!
