It's been a good ride so far!
Since I was just a kid all I have ever wanted to do was to make people laugh or just smile. As a child, an educator sent a note home to my parents. It read; If your son thinks he is going to get through life making people laugh he is in for a RUDE AWAKENING! He is not living up to his potential. WELL, I'M STILL NOT! But at this site you will at least see me try. From the heart, thank you for even being interested, it means the world to me. I always say, I have not a single fan but many a friend!

They are still out there!
Don't give up hope! If you allow them to find you and open the door when they knock, there are still exceptional people walking this earth. I know that with times getting harder and harder each day, the ugly in people is really rising to the top and rearing "its ugly head", so to speak. With each day that passes, a feeling of sadness lay in the bottom of my gut. Every day, I hear of another story of some one, formerly a dear friend, who has thrown that away for what seems like next to nothing! It breaks my heart to hear stories of betrayal, lies and out right deception that people share with me! Screw me once, shame on you, screw me twice then shame on me, should be the mantra that we go through each day with. That being said, it is difficult to be that hard nosed, heartless monster that can no longer forgive and forget but what are you supposed to do? At what point do you draw the line in the sand and cut that person loose? At what point do you decide that you will no longer allow anyone in your life to hurt you? AT WHAT POINT?
I too have gone through periods in my life where betrayal and deceit were so crushing to me that it was hard to acquire the strength the raise my head and get out of bed in the morning. I pulled up my big boy pants and moved on with each day but could not shake the "why" question that was gnawing at the back of my brain. You know what? In nearly every single case, you will never know why people do what they do and that sucks. For some time, I swore that I was done, that I had enough people in my life that I loved and that loved me and they would never, under any circumstances hurt my family. The problem for me was simple though, I love people! I missed meeting new people, I missed hearing new tales around a fire, I missed learning from others mistakes, oh hell, I just missed widening the circle of people that I could give back to and pay it forward! I answered a few knocks on the door and I can say that I am glad that I did. In the last few years, opening that door has allowed me to open my heart and in return I have gained some friends that I would not nor could not imagine not having in my life for the rest of it! Sure, maybe one out of 100 that you meet will be one of those people who remain friends till they hold your hand, or you hold theirs at the side of a death bed! People ask me if I think it is worth the hassle of going through the 99 and it is no easy answer but I have come to the realization that it is! How can it be you ask? Well it has to be, otherwise we would never find that 1 in a 100!
In what is the worst economy and the worse times since the great depression and while so many people break your heart and disappoint you, others will step up and their actions will blow your mind! I suggest that you give some one the chance to do just that. You can't find the diamonds without first digging through layers of rock, and dirt and shit and so on and so on, you get my point, but the pay off is, THE DIAMONDS ARE THERE! So I say do a little mining, the pay off will be worth it. I also suggest that once you open the mine that you have a security guard there to protect your interests and have him carry a big stick and a reliable pistol! HEY, YA NEVER KNOW!
That is just a little JACKSHITLOSOPHY for ya this Friday night! I hope everyone has a great weekend and stays cool and safe out on those murdersickles. In life, like respect, friendship is never just given, it is earned, so give some one the chance to earn yours!
In the next day or so, I will be breaking some Sturgis news that will hopefully make us all happy!
Until we see each other on the road,
Keep the wind in your face,
Tits in your back
and The Man off your ass!
