BE YOURSELF- WHO ELSE COULD YOU BE?

THESE ARE MUSCODINES- A WILD SC GRAPE. THEY ARE VERY SWEET, AND A COUSIN TO THE SUPPERNONG. YOU "MAY" HAVE HEARD OF SCUPPERNONG WINE. THEN AGIN I AM IN SC!!!! IT'S A STATE BETWEEN GA. AND NC. THE WHITE GROWTH IN BETWEEN IS A MUSHROOM- (NO BS!) GROWING UO- OR AN OLD PIECE OF PAPER.

ACTUALLY- THIS IS THE FIRST PICTURE EVER OF THE GEICO MONEY CHARACTER'S GREAT GREAT GRANDFATHER WHO WAS BORN NOT FAR FROM MY HOUSE!!!!!!


TO FOLLOW-UP ON MY LAST POST, THIS WAS A VERY TIMELY E-MAIL. I'M NOT SURE WHY THESE HAVE HIT ME ORR WHY I'M MEDDLING IN OTHERS BUSINESS. I'M NOT PROMOTING ANYTHING, BUT IN THIS CURRENT POLITICAL, SOCIAL & ECONOMIC CLIME- I JUST FEEL WE NEED AA LITTLE RAY OF HOPE. PART OF THAT IS BREAKING STEREOTYPES. CAN WE SAY STEREOTYPES, OR DOES THAT EXIST IN THIS DIGITAL AGE? HMMMM......

YES, SADLY FROM A STATE THAT HAS LONG BEEN ACCUSED OF BEING RACIST, IT'S TIME WE PUT ALL THAT CRAP TO BED.

CAN'T WE ALL JUST GET ALONG? I KNOW, RHETORICAL QUESTION, BUT WE CAN EACH ANSWER IT IN OUR OWN MINDS AND SPIRITS.

I HAVE A PERVERTED POST (NOT SEXUAL) I KNOW- I'M SORRY- BUT MORE TO THE OLD MIND OF JM COMING IN HONOR OF HENRY GIBSON- WHO PLAYED ON LAUGH IN. A SHOW FROM THE 70'S THAT I ABSOLUTELY LOVED AND GREW UP ON. HE PLAYED A CHARACTER OF A POET IN ONE OF HIS BITS,

HERE IS AN EXAMPLE AND I QUOTE:

THE BULLMOOSE

BY HENRY GIBSON

THE BULLMOOSE IS MY FRIEND TRUE BLUE
HE DOESN'T SMOKE; HE DOESN'T CHEW
HIS ONLY HANG-UP IS SNIFFING GLUE
BUT IF I WERE A BULLMOOSE, I WOULD TOO.

SHEER GENIUS- TUNE IN FOR A TRIBUTE POEM SOON!

NOW-BACK TO OUR REGULAR PROGRAMMING- WE ARE BEING PROGRAMMED YOU KNOW!

Recently, in a large French city, a poster featuring a young, thin and
tanned woman appeared in the window of a gym.

It said: "THIS SUMMER DO YOU WANT TO BE A MERMAID OR A WHALE?"


A middle aged woman, whose physical characteristics did not match those
of the woman on the poster, responded publicly to the question posed by
the gym.

To Whom It May Concern:

Whales are always surrounded by friends (dolphins, sea lions, curious
humans). They have an active sex life, they get pregnant and have
adorable baby whales. They have a wonderful time with dolphins, stuffing
themselves with shrimp. They play and
swim in the seas, seeing wonderful places like Patagonia, the Barren
Sea and the coral reefs of Polynesia . Whales are wonderful singers
and have even recorded CDs. They are incredible creatures and
virtually have no predators other than humans.
They are loved, protected and admired by almost everyone in the
world.

Mermaids don't exist. If they did exist, they would be lining up
outside the offices of Argentinean psychoanalysts due to identity
crisis. Fish or human? They don't have a sex life because they kill
men who get close to them, not to mention
how could they have sex? Therefore they don't have kids either. Not
to mention who wants to get close to a girl who smells like a fish
store?

The choice is perfectly clear to me; I want to be a whale.

P.S. We are in an age when media puts into our heads the idea that only
skinny people are beautiful, but I prefer to enjoy an ice cream with my
kids, a good dinner with a man who makes me shiver and a coffee with my
friends. With time we gain weight because we accumulate so much
information and wisdom in our heads that when there is no more room it
distributes out to the rest of our bodies. So we aren't heavy, we are
enormously cultured, educated and happy. Beginning today, when I look
at my butt in the mirror I will think, "Good gosh, look how smart I am!"

WHAT AN AWESOME RESPONSE. I WANT TO ME, I WANT TO BE ME........
BECAUSE IF I WERE YOU,
I'D BE SOMEBODY ELSE.......

GOING TO TAKE MEDS, BRB.
