Ya Gotta Temper A Life Lived WFO With Enough Quiet Contemplation To Appreciate It All. Yin And Yang, All In And Walking Away From The Table, Depending On Whatever Is Right At The Time.

In an era where many of the singers from the 60's, 70's, and 80's made their sound by racking their voices and are now croaking their way through nostalgia acts in Vegas, it's nice to hear Ann Wilson, who had a great set of pipes to start with and took care of them. Yeah, the song is overexposed and I expect to hear it on a linoleum commercial soon, but the audience seemed to like it... even the 3 geezers in the high buck seats.

I got long and stayed long inna 401 plan into the teeth of the silly ass manufactured "Kliff Krisis" and it worked out OK.... Thinkin' about bankin' it at some point.

So, about 3/4 of a lifetime ago, my wife said to me that the middle son, a personable, bright, intelligent, bookish, very likeable kid, would probably be better off for something physical he was accomplished at. The kid was small, slight, and put together like a stick figure made of popsicle sticks and scotch tape. Football and rugby were out. So, we bought him a bolt action, .22 rifle and I taught him to handle firearms and shoot. I'd taught his mother to shoot and handle firearms previously and it all worked out rather well. He learned how to be responsible in handling something that extended his personal power far beyond his stature and that he could feel confident about what he had and what he could do and it was actually a lot cooler to keep his mouth shut than running his mouth off. And a few years latter my wife was able to deal with pistol that the part time deputy sheriff left in the waiting room/kids play area of the medical facility she ran.
So this Christmas, my son said to me, "Does the NRA realize that they are not helping? That they are like PETA with their totally out beyond where the buses run position?"
I have to say that the thought of a pair of George Zimmerman armed to the teeth volunteers showing up at the opposite sides of the schoolyard at the same time makes my blood run cold...
