LEAVE IT TO PEEVER
The deer slayer
Bumper sticker of the week: My husband and I got a divorce over religious reasons. He thought he was God and I didnt.
Quote of the week: "One man alone can be pretty dumb sometimes, but for real bona fide stupidity, there aint nothin can beat team-work." Edward Abbey
Making the ownership of guns one of our biggest issues in this new millennium is a testament to our ongoing stupidity. Seems well never learn: People kill people. Guns make it easier.
What Galesburg needs to prosper:
A huge enema wouldnt hurt.
We need new leadership. The council and mayor need to go to East Galesburg and try their
We need to find something to feature other than our giveaway programs to businesses and
the Reagan Trail. Both are and were embarrassing failures.
We should give the prison to some other needy community.
We could rent the entire community to the Defense Department, but they probably dont need us anymore. Theyve found a new target range.
We could use a sugar daddy. Or mommy.
The Arkansas Razorbacks: Ive become a part-time resident of Arkansas. Hot Springs Village. A pretty nice place, although I think there are a lot of Republicans there. They all seem to have a lot of money. Anyway, its a golfers paradise. Nine golf courses. Too bad I cant play golf worth a damn. And six lakes, although we dont have a boat and I hate the water. But the scenery is really pretty, and I can still see, so I guess it will all work out.
More money for Shangri-La: The city has pledged more of our tax dollars to build Industrial Park #2. It wont be long the total will be at $5 million or so. Hopefully, that will include crappers, depending on whether or not we get a grant to put in a sewage system. The only rumors Ive heard about prospects are a hog refinery and a whore house. That would make for an interesting name: Makin Bacon City. Not bad if I do say so myself. The one thing you cant fault me for is Im always making suggestions.
I bagged a buck: Count me in as a deer slayer. I ran over one. Scared the ever livin hell out of me. At least I know my hearts strong. Im not sure if I killed it. I couldnt find it. I was going to cut its head off and put it on my wall, although it might have been a little crooked. If it didnt die, I sure gave it one hell of a headache. It gave me one hell of a dent, so I suppose we were about even. If anyone kills a deer with gray paint on its antlers, its mine. I ran over it first.
We lost a friend at Swedoughs: One of the members of our coffee clutch at Swedoughs died. A really nice lady that taught me a lot about life over the last ten years or so. When a person is with you one day and gone the next, it is always a stark reminder of how precious and fragile our time is here on Earth. She was a woman of strong faith and Im sure is enjoying the freedom that passing brings. I will miss her. My sympathy to her family.
Im not sure, but I think I lost about $250 or so betting that Kerry would win the election. I am smart enough to bet meals, so at least I get something out of the deal. I have a tendency to lose the big ones, which dates back to betting Professor Seibert that Stevenson would beat Thompson for Illinois governor. (That one cost me a bundle.) Someday I suppose Ill learn. In the meantime Im boycotting Heinz ketchup.
