Hallmark Christmas Stories of 2016

Sunday, December 4th, 2016

Well, it’s only the beginning of December and I’ve already had my fill of Hallmark Christmas movies. This year they started airing on November 5, 2016. All 22 new versions of the same old plot, with different faces. Everyone’s still whispering their lines, and you can hear soft jingling, tinkling bells in the background all through the entire show. Throughout the movie, you’re pulling for 2 people to realize they’re perfect for each other. Somewhere in the last 5 minutes, they give up, fall in love, the music gets louder, and snow starts falling. THE END. The only difference I see this year is that all the characters have upgraded their mobile phone service, and they’re using smartphones.  I’m just waiting to see if one of the characters has a pocket battery explosion. Probably not going to happen, cause that would add  excitement, and that’s something no Hallmark movie has ever had. Thanks for listing. Pass me the tissues.IMG_0069 - Version 2 – Version 3

Upside Down Truck

Tuesday, March 3rd, 2015

You spent $60,000.00, 6 years building your super hot rod show car. You take it out for the first time to drive on a beautiful sunny day. You stop at the red-light and this guy pulls up beside you, with his $6000, 6 month build and no one notices your car.

 

Best Job In the World

Thursday, February 26th, 2015

The TV weather-person has to be the best job in the world. They never get fired for being wrong, they receive praises when they call it right, and their boss lets them play outside when it snows.

WEATHER ALART: It’s snowing in SC tonight. Please remember to keep fresh unfrozen water and food for your outside pets, the wild birds, and the TV weather people. They’re all outside and unable to care for themselves.

Good Foot Brian Williams …. What a Guy

Saturday, February 14th, 2015

brian-williams

I first met Brian Williams in 2004, where we finished 5th and 6th in the New York City Marathon. We became best friends in 2005, at the Quebec Winter Triathlon. Where he twisted his ankle on a used water bottle and was ready to give up. I threw him on my back and we tied for 9th.

Brian was devastated because he believed, and was convinced he would be unable to compete in running events for at least a year. After all, that’s what his doctor, Dr. Oz had told him. Brian was slipping into a deep depression. He was losing his passion for running.

I had to do something, and do it quickly. That’s when I came up with the brilliant idea that Brian and I would team up to go on the Southeastern Three Legged Sack Race Circuit. Just to verify my plan, I contacted my personal friend, Dr. Phil. He was in the middle of show taping, but for some reason, on that day he took my call during a commercial break. He agreed that my plan of competing in Three Legged Sack Races would be a good activity to keep Brian from depression. He also said, he wished he had thought of it. Little did I know how competitive Brian would be by using just his good foot.

That 2005 summer we entered and won every Three Legged Sack Race on the Southeastern Circuit. Over 23 races within a 16 week period. It was an extremely tiring, demanding, and grueling schedule. Lots of farm day festivals, county fairs, and medium size church picnics.

23 first place wins! I don’t think I’ve every witnessed anyone equal to Brian’s strong determination, confidence, and his laser like focus. … Brian Williams …. what a guy.

THE REST OF THE STORY
So, now you know where the slogan, “Put Your Best Foot Forward”  came from…. Thank you,  Brian Williams …. what a guy.

I Took My Dog’s Medication

Monday, February 10th, 2014

Help! My brain has fallen and it can’t get up. Just this past week I managed to take my dog Buster’s medication. 

Each morning, I lay-out, on the kitchen counter all my daily pills (many vitamins and 3 prescriptions). As I’m listening to the morning radio news, I stand at the counter, I swallow one or two pills at a time, in between bites of my morning toast, Pop-Tart, or whatever (I take vitamins in order to eat unhealthy). One morning, I decided to multitask and I also laid Buster’s daily pill to the right side of my pill pile.  In order to trick Buster into taking his daily medication, I must hide his pill in either a small piece of bread, a piece of cheese, or a bit of peanut butter.  That morning, after finishing my last bite of toast,  I walked over to the refrigerator for a small piece of cheese in which to hide Buster’s pill. When I return to the counter, to wrap Buster’s pill with cheese, I discovered his pill was gone. Yep, I had included Buster’s pill as part of my pill pile and swallowed it along with my toast. 

I’m not sure, but later that afternoon I may have killed 2 backyard azaleas. Have to wait till springtime to know for sure.

Poor Customer Service

Sunday, January 26th, 2014

I wasted at least 30 minutes in this restaurant’s restroom, and no one …… not a single McDonald’s employee came in to wash my hands. You’d think a major fast-food chain with a menu item called “Happy Meal” would understand the importance of keeping their customers happy. Just another example of improperly trained employees and poor customer service. When I complained to the manager, he looked me straight in the eyes like I was the idiot.

Please Your Gut, Not Your Friends

Ernie’s Dwarf Car Museum is Now on My Bucket List

Before comedy, I drag raced on the IHRA circuit for 14 years, and was a machine designer for even more years. So, I have an appreciation for unique cars, a respect for mechanical craftsmanship, and an admiration for people that march to their own drum.

More impressive than Ernie Adam’s finished dwarf cars, is Ernie himself. He’s an example of the type individuals that helped make America great. He’s what we should all strive to do with our lives. No, not build mini cars from the junk of others, but strive to discover our personal God given individual uniqueness, and to embrace that uniqueness with confidence and passion. We should learn to trust and follow our initial gut feelings without hesitation and never allow others to convince us otherwise.

The fact that Ernie has the amazing ability to visualize and fabricate with great detail, small running cars, will probably never make a huge difference in the world, but Ernie’s, determination, his work ethics, his humbleness, and the inter peace with which he lives his everyday life is making a positive difference in the lives of those around him.

So, what’s your unique talents? Are you using them? Are you letting other’s plan your life for you? How can they possibly understand your true purpose which God has ingrained in only you?  Stop trying to please others and start pleasing your gut.

Humor Is the Universal Language

Tuesday, April 16th, 2013

You must watch this very funny & creative commercial for an insurance company based in the Netherlands. It was filmed in 2 days on location in Miami. I suggest watching it once or twice just as if you were watching TV in your living room.  Then go back, watch, pause, and restart multiple times to see how many subtle bits of humor are hidden within. This is ABOVE AVERAGE HUMOR in a well crafted commercial, that’ll make people laugh, remember, and purchase.

This international commercial proves “Humor Is the Universal Language”

 

NOTE:  On your 2nd, 3rd or 4th viewing, be sure to read the billboard signs, notice the cool classic cars, and the stainless steel Air Stream Diner. The amount of planning & details in this one short commercial are amazing. The background music is by a Dutch band. Who’d a thunk people in the Netherlands like Bluegrass? Maybe I need to get out more.   Bluegrass Boogiemen
