Potato Story

Magical Moments

   I've been thinking about what makes Christmas such a special season and I've come to the conclusion that it's the season of magical moments.

   To many of us Christmas and Hannukah bring us to a precious moment in our youth filled with awe and wonder. I'm sure you remember bright colorful lights, a feast with all the trimmings ... many remember precious gifts. How about Christmas movies and stories? Or joyful carols? How about majestic winter wonderlands?

   Why couldn't we celebrate this magical moment the whole year round? And then it occurred to me. It isn't that the glitter is gone. It's just that we grew up. The colored lights that fascinated us for hours --- they're still there. But we've gotten bored of it --- the novelty wore off. Imagine what would happen if we stepped down the speedy train of life and walked and appreciated the trip more. Who cares if you don't get a Mercedes? Your Hyundai will still get you there and with less stress. You'll have more friends who will love you for who you are and not for your money.

   Here's an email Debbie of Moreno Valley, CA sent me in September of 2014. CLICK HERE.

   When you look at your home, see your happy family, get a call or an email from friends who were just thinking about you, --- those are magical. When you are able to purchase fresh vegetables or drink clean water from the tap, or walk around pain free, then you know you are truly blessed. Christmas? It's really every day full of its challenges and surprises. What a blessing from God.

   TGIF people!

Potato Story
Contributed by Charlie of New Jersey

A Girl Potato and Boy Potato had eyes for each other, and finally they got married, and had a little sweet Potato, which they called 'Yam.'

Of course, they wanted the best for Yam. When it was time, they told her about the facts of life. They warned her about going out and getting half-baked, so she wouldn't get accidentally mashed, and get a bad name for herself like 'Hot Potato,' and end up with a bunch of tater tots. Yam said not to worry, no spud would get her into the sack and make a rotten potato out of her!

But on the other hand she wouldn't stay home and become a Couch Potato either. She would get plenty of exercise so as not to be skinny like her shoestring cousins. When she went off to Europe, Mr. and Mrs. Potato told Yam To watch out for the hard-boiled guys from Ireland and the greasy guys from France called the French Fries.

And when she went out West, to watch out for the Indians so she wouldn't get scalloped. Yam said she would stay on the straight and narrow and wouldn't associate with those high class Yukon Golds, or the ones from the other side of the tracks who advertise their trade on all the trucks that say, 'Frito Lay.'

Mr. and Mrs. Potato sent Yam to Idaho P.U. (that's Potato University ) so that when she graduated she'd really be in the Chips. But in spite of all they did for her, one-day Yam came home and announced she was going to marry John Madden.

"John Madden?!?!"

Mr. And Mrs. Potato were very upset. They told Yam she couldn't possibly marry John Madden because he's just ...

Super Bowl 2017
First come, first serve! Thanks to Mike of New York and Charlie of New Jersey who passed on this opportunity to my readers --- Raoul

Let me know if you are interested.

A bud of mine has two tickets for the 2017 Super Bowl. Box seats plus airfares, accommodations, etc., but he didn't realize when he bought them that this is going to be on the same day as his wedding so he can't go.

If you're interested and want to go instead of him, go to St. Peter's Church on 23rd street in Nashville TN, at 3 pm.

Look for Louise. She's 5'4", about 125 lbs., nice body, great legs, and is a good cook. She makes $130,000 a year!

She will be the one in the white dress.

(Sorry. If you didn't figure it out yet, this is a joke. --- Raoul)

Look what people do when they are young, athletic and invincible. Seems like only yesterday when I was this reckless (yeah right)! Very entertaining. Watch it full screen and churn the volume up.

Look Ma! No Parachute!

I might have shared this before but it goes well with the previous video. As the earlier goes sideways in blazig speed, this guy goes straight down. He jumps from a plane without a parachute.
