PROSTRATE-OR FLU ??


PROSTRATE-OR FLU ??

THE WIFE AND I FINALLY WENT TO THE DOCTER. PART REGULAR VIST TIME, AND PART FOR FLU/CRAP TIME! IT HAS BEEN 5-7 DAYS, AND HAS NOW CHANGED TO SINUS INFECTIONS.......

(HONESTLY NOT COMPLAINING..BUT DOC SAID THAT HE DIDN'T THINK THE BAD FLU HAD APPEARED YET--SO JUST A REMINDER, COUGH INTO ELBOW, AND PUREL, PUREL, PUREL WHEN USING STUFF IN PUBLIC!!!!


I ASKED THE DR. TO PLEASE CHECK MY PROSTATE WHILE I WAS THERE. HE ASSED....AM I HAVING ANY PROBLEMS AS IT WASN'T TIME FOR THAT "PARTICULAR" EXAM...... (I COULDN'T QUITE PUT MY FINGER ON IT, BUT I SENSED HESITATION IN HIS VOICE)....

I SAID NO..... I JUST THOUGHT IT WOULD TAKE MY MIND OFF HOW BAD I FEEL FOR ABOUT 1 MINUTE.....


WAS THAT WRONG ???? 

(NO HE DIDN'T CHECK IT--BUTT HE LAUGHED...SO MY MIND WAS DIVERTED ANYWAY!!!!)

ALSO: WILL BE BACK POSTING REGULARLY AFTER THIS WEEKEND.....SO PLEASE DON'T GO AWAY.... I NEED YOU!!!!!

HEADING TO FL FOR OUR 2ND ANAL--ANNUAL..SORRY--FOOTBALL PLAYERS BBQ!!!!

ACTUALLY--WE DON'T BBQ FOOTBALL PLAYERS...I HAD TO GET THAT IN BEFORE MY LOYAL FAMILY DID!!!! SORRY GUYS, BUT I''M LEARNING YOU!!!!
1971- SPRING OF JR. YEAR.  HE'S A GIANT--LOOK IN THE BACKGROUND--HE'S CRUSHING THE GYMNASIUM WITH HIS LEFT HAND!

"OH YEAH--HE'S A STUD, HE'S MACHO, HE'S MODEST,
YOU WANT TO KISS ME, HE SUCKED IN COLLEGE!"  LOL! NO REALLY--I DID!

OUR COACH STARTED THIS LAST YEAR, FOR TWO CLASSES...1971 & 1972! ABOUT 8-10 PLAYERS MADE IT FOR THE FIRST ONE, AS NO ONE REALLY HAD TIME TO PREPARE FOR IT. THIS YEAR, WORD HAS IT THAT WE MAY 20 PLUS PLAYERS RETURNING.

THIS WAS DURING THE TIME OF INTEGRATION AS AN ALL AFRICAN AMERICAN HIGH SCHOOL, MERGED WITH OUR ALL WHITE HIGH SCHOOL. CAN YOU IMAGINE HAVING YOUR OWN IDENTITY AS AN ALL AFRICAN AMERICAN SCHOOL..YOUR OWN POSITIONS AS STARTERS..AND THEN MERGING AND HAVING TO COMPETE..WITH PLAYERS OF A DIFFERENT RACE IN A TOTALLY NEW ENVIRONMENT THAN YOU WERE USED TOO?

THAT'S WHAT THESE MEN--HAD TO DO. AND WE DIDN'T REALLY REALIZE THAT SACRIFICE AT THAT TIME!!!!!!!!! NOW WE CAN TALK ABOUT IT, AND HOW IT CHANGED US, INTO ACCEPTANCE AND LOVE FOR EACH OTHER, AS WE LEARNED TO PUT DIFFERENCES ASIDE AND PULL TOGETHER. THIS WAS IN THE DEEP SOUTH FOLKS!!!!!


SPORTS BROUGHT THAT SCHOOL TOGETHER, IN A WAY THAT WAS MIRACULOUS. NO FIGHTS--WELL ONE- THAT I'LL POST ABOUT LATER, BUT COMMON GROUND SHOWED US THAT WE WERE ALL THE SAME. AND WHEN YOU HAVE A COMMON GOAL, OR PERHAPS MORE IMPORTANTLY, A COMMON FOE: PERSPECTIVES CHANGE. I KNOW THEY DID IN TIME OF WAR!!!!


IF YOU HAVEN'T SEEN IT--PLEASE SEE "REMEMBER THE TITANS"- HOW CAN YOU GO WRONG WITH DENZEL ???, WHICH IS A POWERFUL MESSAGE CONCERNING RESPECT FOR & OF OTHERS, EQUALITY, AS WELL AS A GREAT FEEL GOOD SPORTS MOVIE!!!! IT HITS ON SO MANY DIFFERENT EMOTIONAL, RACIAL, SOCIAL AND SPIRITUAL ISSUES!


GOD IS NO RESPECTER OF PERSONS, TO PARAPHRASE THE BIBLE.... WHETHER YOU BELIEVE, OR WHATEVER YOU BELIEVE.....

 SHOULDN'T THIS APPLY TO ALL OF US?  OUR PLANET IS SHOWING SIGNS OF UPHEAVAL......PEOPLE ARE ALWAYS FIGHTING FOR FREEDOM AND EQUALITY.

WHAT A NOBLE CAUSE FOR A FIGHT!


ARE WE STILL PREJUDICED AS A SOCIETY/FAMILY?

WHY OR WHY NOT?

HOW FAR HAVE WE COME?

HOW MUCH FURTHER DO WE NEED TO GO?

WILL IT EVER BE ERASED ENTIRELY?

IS PREJUDICE JUST, COLOR OF SKIN?

LOVE YOU ALL!!! 

UNLESS YOU BELIEVE EXACTLY LIKE I DO!!!

  3. It's amazing the different experiences people have with those who are "different". We never had many around. There are more now but still a white majority by far. The biggest problems comes from the Serb and Croat gangs.

  5. Get yourself to feeling better John!!

    Excellent Post Buddy, It has been a long row to hoe in getting past the racial problems, I for one know there is a difference in looks but our feelings are exactly the same so we should be there to help each other rather than hate.

    God doesn't look upon us by color, he looks at our actions and hate is one of the actions that helps no one

  6. I'm sorry you're still feeling poorly. Does the wife have the same thing? As for that "bad flu".... you will hopefully be spared that since you got your flu shot. Think positively!

  7. Jeannie-- Weird sounding gangs! Do they spray paint in weird buy a vowel languages??

    Pat- It would be soo easy wouldn't it?

    We Got the shot too! Want money back--it's a conspiracy- probably an injection to make you want to accept Credit Card offers in the mail!!! LOL @ Butt clinched!

    Jimmy-- Better today--Thanks Buddy. This one kicked our hineys big time. We are still blessed though!

    Amen to the same Skin!!! We all be kin!

    Kelly- Yep--we both had the same thing- about two days difference! I'm two days behind her, and I'm much better today. So I don't know why I picked up antibiotics today!!!!!

    As for BAD Flu--I agree with you--I'm done for the year! They are testing Positive at Urgent Scare for Flu "A". A very few cases of Flu-"B" in kids. This vaccine had the "Other" Flu in it too...so I pray we don't have a late season, or a mutated strain.

  14. Way past time to stop judging people on the color of their skin and start judging them on the content of their character...I say we start with an honest assessment of every political creature. Maybe we could look qat Obama and So Be It Boehner for comparative analysis.

    Personally I think they both are coming up short in the character department just one doesn't cry about it.
