Guess what’s for dinner? Taco’s! But before then we have a big day of work, school, intramurals, band and errands. I’m supposed to go to Vail but am not sure I can make it up there.
Yesterday after school we stopped by Grandma’s as Ty’s been bugging me to take him up as he wants to switch from the flute to the saxophone. Grandma has her old one from probably like 100 years ago but it still works. Jag managed to get some sound out of it and Ty did once with some coaching but still, he wants to play the sax! Before that we ran him over for a quick buzz cut at the barber. It’s one of the few places where $10 bucks can still get you something.
This morning Ty needs to be at school by 7am so we’re up early around here. I’ve been trying to stay away from politics but I have to say, please vote Republican! No matter which party you belong to you have to realize, and admit, that something has to change. Unfortunately the current Pres was never really qualified for the job. Even his own party is running away from him. To sum it up, read this, it’s pretty appropriate. God Bless
While walking down the street one day a Corrupt Senator was tragically hit by a car and died.His soul arrives in heaven and is met byÂ St. Peter at the entrance.”Welcome to heaven,” saysÂ St. Peter. “Before you settle in, it seems there is a problem. We seldom see a high official around these parts, you see, so we’re not sure what to do with you.”
“No problem, just let me in,” says the Senator.
“Well, I’d like to, but I have orders from the higher ups. What we’ll do is have you spend one day in hell and one in heaven. Then you can choose where to spend eternity.”
“Really?, I’ve made up my mind. I want to be in heaven,” says the Senator.
“I’m sorry, but we have our rules.”
And with that,Â St. Peter escorts him to the elevator and he goes down, down, down to hell.
The doors open and he finds himself in the middle of a green golf course. In the distance is a clubhouseÂ and standing in front of it are all his friends and other politicians who had worked with him.
Everyone is very happy and in evening dress. They run to greet him, shake his hand, and reminisceÂ about the good times they had while getting rich at the expense of the people.They played a friendly game of golf and then dine on lobster,Â caviarÂ and the finest champagne.Also present is the devil, who really is a very friendly guy who is having a good time dancing and telling jokes.
They are all having such a good time that before the Senator realizes it, it is time to go.
Everyone gives him a hearty farewell and waves while the elevator rises.
The elevator goes up, up, up and the door reopens in heaven whereÂ St. Peter is waiting for him, “Now it’s time to visit heaven…â€
So, 24 hours passed with the Senator joining a group of contented souls moving from cloud to cloud, playing the harp and singing. They have a good time and, before he realizes it, the 24 hours have gone by andÂ St. Peter returns.
“Well, then, you’ve spent a day in hell and another in heaven. Now choose your eternity.”
The Senator reflects for a minute, then he answers: “Well, I would never have said it before, I mean heaven has been delightful, but I think I would be better off in hell.”
SoÂ St. Peter escorts him to the elevator and he goes down, down, down to hell…
Now the doors of the elevator open and he’s in the middle of a barren land covered with waste and garbage. He sees all his friends, dressed in rags, picking up the trash and putting it in black bags as more trash falls from above
The devil comes over to him and puts his arm around his shoulders.
“I don’t understand,” stammers the Senator. “Yesterday I was here and there was a golf course andÂ clubhouse, and we ate lobster andÂ caviar, drank champagne, and danced and had a great time. Now there’s just aÂ wastelandÂ full of garbage and my friends look miserable. What happened?”
The devil smiles at him and says,
“Yesterday we were campaigning, Today, you voted..”
Vote wisely November 4TH.
