Demonstration of Love

A group of women were at a seminar on how to live in a loving relationship with their husbands. The women were asked, “How many of you love your husband?” All the women raised their hands.

Then they were asked, “When was the last time you told your husband you loved him?

“Some women answered today, a few yesterday, and some couldn’t remember.

The women were then told to take out their cell phones and text their husband – “I love you, Sweetheart”

Next the women were instructed to exchange phones with one another and read aloud the text message they received in response to their message.

Below are hilarious replies. If you have been married for quite a while, you understand that these replies are a sign of true love. Who else would reply in such a succinct and honest way?

1. Who the hell is this?
2. Eh, mother of my children, are you sick or what?
3. Yeah, and I love you too. What’s wrong?
4. What now? Did you wreck the car again?
5. I don’t understand what you mean?
6. What the hell did you do now?
7. Don’t beat about the bush, just tell me how much you need?
8. Am I dreaming?
9. If you don’t tell me who this message is actually for, someone will die.
10. I thought we agreed you wouldn’t drink during the day.
11. Your mother is coming to stay with us, isn’t she?

Donkey

The king wanted to go fishing. He called on the royal weather forecaster and inquired as to the weather forecast for the next few hours. The weatherman assured him that there was no chance of rain in the coming days.

So the king went fishing with his wife, the queen. On the way he met a farmer on his donkey. Upon seeing the king the farmer said, “Your Majesty, you should return to the palace! In just a short time I expect a huge amount of rain to fall in this area”.

The king was polite and considerate, he replied: “I hold the palace meteorologist in high regard. He is an extensively educated and experienced professional. And besides, I pay him very high wages. He gave me a very different forecast. I trust him.”

So the king continued on his way. However, a short time later a torrential rain fell from the sky. The King and Queen were totally soaked and their entourage chuckled upon seeing them in such a shameful condition.

Furious, the king returned to the palace and gave the order to fire the professional. Then he summoned the farmer and offered him the prestigious and high paying role of royal forecaster.

The farmer said, “Your Majesty, I do not know anything about forecasting. I obtain my information from my donkey. If I see my donkey’s ears drooping, it means with certainty that it will rain.” So the king hired the donkey.

And thus began the practice of hiring dumb asses to work in the government and occupy its highest and most influential positions. The practice is unbroken to this day and the Democrat symbol was born.

Bikes, Babes, and Beer…Oh My!

Went to an event at Boarder X Brewery in San Diego, California that had bikes, models, and it was at a brewery so it had beer. Talk about an excellent combination. Here was one one the models that was posing in front of the vehicles.

San Diego Airport

Here are some things I saw while at the San Diego airport. One was a group of people that were all white and the title of it is, “At the Gate.” The other photo was of the Spirit of Saint Louis airplane.

Kansas City Southern Train

thekumachan_Kansas_City_Southern_Train-1
I was in traffic, looked over, saw this train, and snapped a quick photo of it. It made me wonder, was it this train that got somebody out of this town? Did this train bring somebody into this town? Was this train the one where people dreams began or was it the one where they ended? Whichever it was, this vessel was the backbone that carried those aspirations and burdens. It must be quite the vessel.

West Coast Cars

Went to an event tonight were there were some tricked out West Coast cars with hydraulics, low riders, and some motorcycles. It was my first time ever seeing anything like this so I tried to capture the cars in the best light. Here are some of my photos from the event.

Working Mammals

Drove over to San Diego to see the pens where the United States Navy holds and cares for dolphins. I have absolutely no doubt in my mind that the United States Navy gives these dolphins the very best care that they can give them, but it made me think about if the Navy should be using dolphins as working animals. The police use dogs as working animals to help sniff out drugs and bombs. Blind people use dogs to help aid for their loss of vision. Autistic people even use dogs to assist them. Is an animal’s life less valuable than a human life? Should dolphins be used to help find and identify potential threats to naval ships? If they are used in that regard why not use them to attack and do harm to others as well? Where do you draw the line for working animals? Should animals be used as combatants or kept as non-combatants? Koreans use dogs to smell out and track down north Korean defectors. Then again Koreans eat dogs too, so they might not hold animals in the highest regard. Should it be acceptable for the United States to use animals to protect the lives of American combatants and naval ships?
