Happy Halloween 2011

October 31
HHI think this could mean
T-R-O-U-B-L-E, because of the 1 and 3 that also make up the unlucky number 13! So even though Friday the 13th does not come until later this month, you better treat today as an especially tricky Halloween. Be extremely careful in everything you do!

Pumpkin Carving
Here’s one of the best pumpkin carving I have ever seen.

The Real Boogie Man
He calls himself the real boogie man. Watch out. He might get you!!!

Be Careful Tonight
Be especially watchful and careful tonight as children go out trick or treating.

Important!!!
Tennessee Granddaddy is gong to be very busy the next couple of weeks. Because of this I will only have 3 posts per week. I hope to get back on schedule before Thanksgiving.

Where Is America Headed?

In the Wrong Direction
I saw the results of a poll yesterday where it indicated that more than 75% of Americans are not happy with the direction the U.S. is going. I’m among the 75%. I see and hear about too many things that make me shake my head in wonder… things that don’t make any sense because the U.S. is getting away from its core values. We need to get back to the principles that made the country strong in the beginning.

Also, you might want to watch this video by Bill Reilly where he discusses the America of today—America in Decline.

All is not lost, yet. We can overcome by electing people that support a capitalist America, a small government, a fair tax code, secure borders, and freedom to secure individual goals.

Final Inspection

Poem For the Soldier
I received the following poem from a good friend. I thought you might enjoy it also.

u1 u2 u3

The
Final
Inspection

u5

The Soldier stood and faced God,
Which must always come to pass.
He hoped his shoes were shining,
Just as brightly as his brass.
'Step forward now, Soldier ,
How shall I deal with you?
Have you always turned the other cheek?
To My Church have you been true?
The soldier squared his shoulders and said,
'No, Lord, I guess I have not.
Because those of us who carry guns,
Can't always be a saint
I've had to work most Sundays,
And at times my talk was tough.
And sometimes I've been violent,
Because the world is awfully rough.
But, I never took a penny,
That wasn't mine to keep...
Though I worked a lot of overtime,
When the bills got just too steep.
And I never passed a cry for help,
Though at times I shook with fear..
And sometimes, God, forgive me,
I've wept unmanly tears.
I know I don't deserve a place,
Among the people here.
They never wanted me around,
Except to calm their fears
If you've a place for me here, Lord,
It needn't be so grand.
I never expected or had too much,
But if you don't, I'll understand.

There was a silence all around the throne,
Where the saints had often trod.
As the Soldier waited quietly,
For the judgment of his God.

'Step forward now, you Soldier,
You've borne your burdens well.
Walk peacefully on Heaven's streets,
You've done your time in Hell.'

~ Author Unknown

Thomas Jefferson

220px-Thomas_Jefferson_PortraitThird President of the USA
I received this information about this great man a few days ago. I wanted to share because I have always been impressed with this president. Here goes…

John F. Kennedy held a dinner in the white House for a group of the brightest minds in the nation at that time. He made this statement: "This is perhaps the assembly of the most intelligence ever to gather at one time in the White House with the exception of when Thomas Jefferson dined alone."

Thomas Jefferson was a very remarkable man who started learning very early in life and never stopped.

At 5, began studying under his cousin's tutor.

At 9, studied Latin, Greek and French.

At 14, studied classical literature and additional languages.

At 16, entered the College of William and Mary.

At 19, studied Law for 5 years starting under George Wythe.

At 23, started his own law practice.

At 25, was elected to the Virginia House of Burgesses.

At 31, wrote the widely circulated "Summary View of the Rights of British America ” and retired from his law practice.

At 32, was a Delegate to the Second Continental Congress.

At 33, wrote the Declaration of Independence .

At 33, took three years to revise Virginia’s legal code and wrote a Public Education bill and a statute for Religious Freedom.

At 36, was elected the second Governor of Virginia succeeding Patrick Henry.

At 40, served in Congress for two years.

At 41, was the American minister to France and negotiated commercial treaties with European nations along with Ben Franklin and John Adams.

At 46, served as the first Secretary of State under George Washington.

At 53, served as Vice President and was elected president of the American Philosophical Society.

At 55, drafted the Kentucky Resolutions and became the active head of Republican Party.

At 57, was elected the third president of the United States .

At 60, obtained the Louisiana Purchase doubling the nation's size.

At 61, was elected to a second term as President.

At 65, retired to Monticello .

At 80, helped President Monroe shape the Monroe Doctrine.

At 81, almost single-handedly created the University of Virginia and served as its first president.

At 83, died on the 50th anniversary of the Signing of the Declaration of Independence along with John Adams

Thomas Jefferson knew because he himself studied the previous failed attempts at government. He understood actual history, the nature of God, his laws and the nature of man. That happens to be way more than what most understand today. Jefferson really knew his stuff. A voice from the past to lead us in the future:

"When we get piled upon one another in large cities, as in Europe, we shall become as corrupt as Europe ."
-- Thomas Jefferson

"The democracy will cease to exist when you take away from those who are willing to work and give to those who would not."
-- Thomas Jefferson

"It is incumbent on every generation to pay its own debts as it goes. A principle which if acted on would save one-half the wars of the world."
-- Thomas Jefferson

"I predict future happiness for Americans if they can prevent the government from wasting the labors of the people under the pretense of taking care of them."
-- Thomas Jefferson

"My reading of history convinces me that most bad government results from too much government."
-- Thomas Jefferson

"No free man shall ever be debarred the use of arms."
-- Thomas Jefferson

"The strongest reason for the people to retain the right to keep and bear arms is, as a last resort, to protect themselves against tyranny in government."
-- Thomas Jefferson

"The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants."
-- Thomas Jefferson

"To compel a man to subsidize with his taxes the propagation of ideas which he disbelieves and abhors is sinful and tyrannical."
-- Thomas Jefferson

Thomas Jefferson said in 1802:  "I believe that banking institutions are more dangerous to our liberties than standing armies.

If the American people ever allow private banks to control the issue of their currency, first by inflation, then by deflation, the banks and corporations that will grow up around the banks will deprive the people of all property - until their children wake-up homeless on the continent their fathers conquered."

Tennessee Granddaddy Says:
I wonder what Thomas Jefferson would think about the situation in our country including our national debt, occupy Wall Street, the control of our borders, etc.

One Big Bear

Probably Common in Alaska
My son and his wife recently traveled to Alaska for a combination business trip and vacation. He sent me a picture that was in one of the local newspapers one day while he was there. I thought I would share with you because my reaction was “That is one Big Bear!”

BrownBearAlaska

That bear makes our black bears look a little puny. I glad we don’t have anything like that roaming around our neighborhoods. I can enjoy and tolerate the minor inconveniences caused by squirrels, rabbits, raccoons, possums, and the occasional skunk, but not big bears.


~~~
Tennessee Granddaddy Says:
In my younger days I owned a ‘57 Chevy 57chevyyellow convertible. (My car was just like the one in this picture.) On one trip to the Smoky Mountains, a friend and I came back to the car from a short hike, and found a full grown black bear on the front seat of my convertible, I had left the top down. The bear was enjoying some food we had left in the car. When I saw him, I wasn’t happy, but all the sightseers were having great fun. With a little persuasion I got the bear to leave, to the disappointment of the crowd that was around my car.
Note: Beverly and I owned that car for a few years after we were married. I had gotten rid of the “bear smell”. I sure would like to have that Chevy now. It would be worth a big bundle.

Different Types of Laws

Three Types, Maybe
I’m thinking there are 4 types of laws: Physical Laws, Man’s Laws, God’s Laws, and the “You Can Count On It Laws”. Today I am going to share the laws of the latter type, “You Can Count On It.”

  1. Law of Gravity - Any tool, nut, bolt, screw, when dropped, will roll to the least accessible corner.
  2. Law of Probability - The probability of being watched is directly proportional to the stupidity of your act.
  3. Law of Random Numbers - If you dial a wrong number, you never get a busy signal and someone always answers.
  4. Variation Law - If you change lines (or traffic lanes), the one you were in will always move faster than the one you are in now (works every time).
  5. Law of the Bath - When the body is fully immersed in water, the telephone rings.
  6. Law of Close Encounters - The probability of meeting someone you know increases dramatically when you are with someone you don't want to be seen with.
  7. Law of the Result - When you try to prove to someone that a machine won't work, it will.
  8. Law of Biomechanics - The severity of the itch is inversely proportional to the reach.
  9. Law of the Theater & Hockey Arena - At any event, the people whose seats are furthest from the aisle always arrive last. They are the ones who will leave their seats several times to go for food, beer, or the toilet, and who leave early before the end of the performance or the game is over. The folks in the aisle seats come early, never move once, have long gangly legs or big bellies and stay to the bitter end of the performance. The aisle people also are very surly folk.
  10. The Coffee Law - A s soon as you sit down to a cup of hot coffee, your boss will ask you to do something which will last until the coffee is cold.
  11. Murphy's Law of Lockers - If there are only 2 people in a locker room, they will have adjacent lockers.
  12. Law of Physical Surfaces - The chances of an open-faced jelly sandwich landing face down on a floor, are directly correlated to the newness and cost of the carpet or rug.
  13. Law of Logical Argument - Anything is possible if you don't know what you are talking about.
  14. Brown's Law of Physical Appearance - If the clothes fit, they're ugly.
  15. Oliver's Law of Public Speaking - A closed mouth gathers no feet.
  16. Wilson's Law of Commercial Marketing Strategy - As soon as you find a product that you really like, they will stop making it.
  17. Doctors' Law - If you don't feel well, make an appointment to go to the doctor, by the time you get there you'll feel better.. But don't make an appointment, and you'll stay sick.

~~~
Tennessee Granddaddy Says:
There may be more laws that aren’t listed above. I know for sure that you’ll spill something on your clothes at the worse possible time, your shoe string will break at the most inconvenient time, your fishing gear will malfunction just when the fish start biting, and so on. Remember when you were a teenage, you would always get that bad pimple just before a big date. You know what, all of this is JUST PART OF LIFE. Learn to laugh at yourself make the most of every moment.

Here’s an email from a blonde…

Last year I replaced all the windows in my house with that expensive double-pane energy efficient kind, and today, I got a call from the contractor who installed them. He was complaining that the work had been completed a whole year ago and I still hadn't paid for them.

Hellloooo,............just because I'm blonde doesn't mean that I am automatically stupid. So, I told him just what his fast talking sales guy had told me last year, that in ONE YEAR these windows would pay for themselves! Helllooooo? It's been a year! I told him.

There was only silence at the other end of the line, so I finally just hung up. He never called back. I bet he felt like an idiot.

Garage Sale

Today and Tomorrow
Grandmother and I are having a garage sale today and tomorrow. We’ve been working the past couple of weeks to get our stuff organized for this sale. Since it will be cool today, most of what we have will be inside our little “barn”.

So if you are in the area today, drop by and say hello. We’ll enjoy your visit and you do not have to buy anything.

I saw an interesting sign at an old general store a few months ago. It said, “We buy junk, and we sell antiques.” Well, if I had to put up a sign at our garage sale, it might go like this, “We bought stuff we thought we needed, and sell junk at bargain prices.”

Earlier This Week 
Just I spend a few days in Knoxville last week with my Dad and Sister. I’ve been going down when I can to give Mary a little rest. One afternoon while I was there we drove up to Gatlinburg and into the edge of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. Here’s a few pictures…

Tennessee Granddaddy Says:

Elephants Reunited After 20 Years

Emotion
I received the following note the other day…

It's very rare for elephants to display this kind of emotion in captivity and it's probably the first time such a thing has been documented on film. You are about to see a moving video of two elephants reunited after more than 20 years.

The Dallas Zoo had an elephant, named Jenny, who was alone for two decades after they sent Shirley, their other elephant, to another zoo for mating. There was talk about sending her to a zoo in Mexico, but the outcry from animal lovers prevented that. We can only imagine the loneliness these animals felt to have been isolated for so long when they are naturally loving toward all members of their troupe. After so many years now they each have a companion to spend their days with.

Jenny and Shirley were together, at the same circus, when Jenny was a calf and Shirley was in her twenties. The two lived one winter together, but then were separated twenty-two years ago.

Just remarkable ! And absolutely worth the watch....


Animals are amazing.
Be kind to animals.

Visit to Parks Mill

Last Friday
We drove to Abingdon, Virginia, to visit the Parks Mill. I think it is one of a dwindling number of operating mills. It was a nice experience to walk through that old mill and imagine the tons of corn that had been ground there in past years. They still grind corn for two products: corn meal and grits. We bought 2 packages of the meal and 1 of the grits.

Later that evening Beverly baked some cornbread muffins made from that Parks Mill corn meal. It was delicious. I can’t wait to try the grits!

Here’s a few pictures to give you a feel for our visit to the old mill. (And thanks to my friend Nancy O who gave the information about this working mill.)

The water wheel is still turning. Note the belt that powers off the wheel. IMG_1417

No Fishing Today

High Winds Predicted
As much as I wanted to get out on the lake today, we decided it was better not to try it. We have predictions of winds up to 25 mph, which would be awful for trying to fish. If you did not know, the fisherman’s worse enemy is the wind.

We are planning our garage sale for next weekend on Friday and Saturday, Oct 21-22. So today, instead of going fishing, we will be working to prepare.

Back by popular demand… Lawyers should never ask a Mississippi grandma a question if they are not prepared for the answer. In a trial, a Southern small-town prosecuting attorney called his first witness, a grandmother, elderly woman to the stand. He approached her and asked, Mrs. Jones, do you know me?

She responded, “Why, yes I do know you, Mr. Williams. I’ve known you since you were a boy, and frankly, you’ve been a big disappointment to me. You lie, you cheat on your wife, and you manipulate people and talk about them behind their backs. You think you’re a big shot when you haven’t the brains to realize you’ll never amount to anything more than a two-bit paper pusher. Yes I know you.”

The Lawyer was stunned. Not knowing what else to do, he pointed across the room and asked, “Mrs. Jones, do you know the defense attorney?”

She again replied, “Why yes, I do. I’ve known Mr. Bradley since he was a youngster, too. He’s lazy, bigoted, and has a drinking problem. He can’t build a normal relationship with anyone, and his law practice is one of the worst in the entire state. Not to mention he cheated on his with three different women. One of them was your wife. Yes, I know him.”

The attorney nearly dies.

The judge asked both counselors to approach the bench and, in a very quiet voice said, “If either of you idiots ask her is she knows me, I’ll send you both to the electric chair."

While he did not want to appear insensitive, he didn't want to miss an opportunity he asked "Well, before you jump, why don't you give me a Kiss?"

So, she does and it was a long, deep lingering kiss.

After she's finished, the biker says, "Wow! That was the best Kiss I have ever had. That's a real talent you are wasting. You could be famous! Why are you committing suicide?"

"My parents don't like me dressing up like a girl......"
