Three's coming at'ch ya'

I stole this from my niece Rebecca. Becky is one cool person and I would dearly have loved to have her or any of my nieces as my daughter. We had Dave but it just isn't the same, but his wife Barb will just have to do. I know that we all love her.


Three Things That Scare Me:
That I am not afraid of very many things. I might just push the envelope too much and that could cause my demise.
Really bad weather. I am a sky watcher and listen to the TV when it gets really bad.
The thought that my family could be hurt and I couldn't stop that from happening.

Three People Who Make Me Laugh:
My Mother
My son
My wife (but she can make me cry)

Three Things I Love to Do:
Ride my recumbent bike
help others
Win (at anything)

Three Things I Hate:
Impolite people (especially teens)
People who will look you in the face and lie to you. (not that a good story told with a laugh is a lie)
People who forget that their rights end where mine begin.

Three Things I Don't Understand:
The rush to change technology.
Man's need for religion and the differences in "god".

Three Things On My Desk:
An empty coffee glass (you didn't think a cup would properly caffeinate me did you?)
A"fancy dancy" notebook computer
The monitor for the "old Dog" computer that I haven't found a new home for

Three Things I'm Doing Right Now:
Blogging (duh)
Thinking about the "what if''s" in my life. (like did I win the lottery and how long would it take me to spend the 30 million?
Contemplating the school board election Tuesday.

Three Things I Want To Do Before I Die:
There aren't a lot of things on this list. I have most of what I need, a lot of what I want and a Walmart nearby.
Ride the KATY trail on my bike
Attend Dave's Graduation from Washburn and hold his first born child.

Three Things I Can Do:
Speak without fear in front of a lot of people
Wing my way through most subjects in front of a class. At least I can prepare quickly. And admit it when I know nothing and get away with it.
Love a lot of people and enjoy a crowd.

Three Things I Can't Do:
Not much on this list but I have forgotten how to program a computer.
Reprogram Mom's remotes if the booklet is gone.
Win that damn lottery. Power Ball be damned!

Three Things I Think You Should Listen To:
That little voice that says, "don't do it". when it screams at you. You should stop and say," What's the worse thing that can happen?" If die is on that list, don't do it.
Talk radio but remember they are commentators not the people that make history/government.
NPR news to off set the bull you hear listening to talk radio.

Three Things You Should Never Listen To:
The urge to buy something you don't need. A new car once in your life but newer twice.
Rap music. I object to the terms "Niggers and HO's". Blasting caps on the pigs is illegal guys.
People that lie without calling them on it.

Three Things I'd Like To Learn (but won't):
How to write a really good book. I will write one but what you will see is what you will get.
"Ground truth about women" I love them but will never understand them.
Why the need to accumulate things always equals the space to store them. Can't just once in my life the garage be empty?

Three Favourite Foods:
Almost anything that is meat and grilled. I will eat vegs's that are cooked on the grill but they aren't as good as a great steak.
Hamburgers. I have had some bad one's but not very many. Add mustard, pickles, lettuce and a tomato slice (a'la Sonic) and you have perfection. Hold the mayo on my burger please.

Three Shows I Watched As A Kid: ( I was seven or eight when we got our first TV)
Amos and Andy (radio)
Gunsmoke (Radio)
The Shadow (radio)
Rin Tin Tin, Lassie was a wimp and Rin Tin Tin could tear off his leg and beat him with it. (TV)
Our Gang Comedies (The Little Rascal Club on local TV)
Friday Night Fights sponsored by Gillette. Dad loved his and I would watch with him. (We only had one TV and you can bet he won that argument.
Here's a fourth - Whirllybirds on Sunday night. It was just past my bedtime and I would sneak in to the kitchen and watch without getting caught. (most of the time)



  1. I wish I had known about the new car, big time stupid tax!! Love ya Kim

  2. I can drive my old truck (with gas) for a year for what it costs to insure and license a new car. The truck never gets worth less than it is worth right now. I advocate everyone get one new car once in their lifetime as there is nothing sweeter than the smell of a new car. After that, get real and buy used and drive them until they quit. It is an investment in transportation not a status symbol. If at all possible pay cash!

  3. The only thing women want is to be treasured. That pretty much covers everything.
    Oh and on my list I forgot to add that I was afraid of horses.

  4. you may still win that power ball! don't give up hope! haha.
