Ron White

"They call me tater salad."~Ron White

"I had the right to remain silent...but I didn't have the ability." ~Ron White

Ron White, born December 18, 1956, is one of my favorite American stand-up comedians. He is from Fritch, Texas.

Ron,Jeff, Bill, and Larry having breakfast.
Ron gives Jeff a hug.

Ron was on the Blue Collar Comedy Tour. He toured with three other comedians. Jeff Foxworthy another of my favorites was also on that tour. I saw Jeff perform live in King of Prussia, Pennsylvania. I laughed so hard I cried. Bill Engvall and Larry the Cable Guy were also on the Blue Collar Comedy Tour with Jeff and Ron.

There was a guy, down in Florida, who said that the age of 53 years old he was in good enough physical condition to withstand the wind, rain, and hail of a force-5 hurricane. Now, lemme explain somethin' to ya: It isn't *that* the wind is blowin'. It's *what* the wind is blowin'. If you get hit by a *Volvo*, it don't matter how many sit-ups you did that mornin'. ~ Ron White
We have tickets to go see Ron tomorrow in Fargo. I am so excited. I can’t wait to see his live performance. Ron White is so funny. I am going to enjoy his show. I will make sure we bring our “Coupins.”

Friday Fluster

“I haven’t failed. I’ve found 10,000 ways that don’t work.” ~ Thomas Edison

Some days I just can’t find the time to write a post. I had so many great thoughts that I can’t grab a hold of after the all the interruptions. Jaycee is in demand mode. I ignored her for a minute to try and continue my post. Well, that was a mistake. She dumped a box a life cereal on the dining room rug right in front of the gate to the kitchen where I put Teddy, the dog. His head was under the gate eating and she was on all fours eating with him. What a mess! The living room is a disaster! I have laundry, dishes, and sweeping to do. I have to start dinner.

Joe is away for a Baseball game. "Go Thunder!"

This was my seventh or eighth attempt at a post today. I give up. Wish me better luck tomorrow.

President Bush

"I fully understand the effects of gasoline price raises on people who are working. It's like a tax. Every time it goes up at the pump, people are like paying a tax."
North Carolina, Apr. 6, 2006~George W. Bush

David Letterman: "President Bush is now being accused of leaking classified information. I was stunned. I was shocked. I said to myself, 'Wait, they let this guy see classified information.'"

Jay Leno: "President Bush says America has caused an incredible transformation in Afghanistan. He said everything's being rebuilt, people are getting jobs, kids are going back to school. He said it works so well that he's thinking of trying it in New Orleans."

Q: How many Bush Administration officials does it take to screw in a light bulb?

A: None. There is nothing wrong with the light bulb; it's conditions are improving every day. Any reports of its lack of incandescence are delusional spin from the liberal media. That light bulb has served honorably, and anything you say undermines the lighting effect. Why do you hate freedom?

Bush slip ups, this is very funny!

"The pitcher has got only a ball. I've got a bat. So the percentage of weapons is in my favor and I let the fellow with the ball do the fretting."~Hank Aaron

Joe in uniform.

The name of Joe’s team is called Thunder. Thunder won the baseball game! We had to leave a little early and we missed Joe’s hit. He almost had an RBI! I am sorry we missed that. We stayed for 2 hours and watched the game. Jaycee had a lot of fun picking dandelions and playing with her plastic deer figures, she calls them Bambi’s, in the grass.

Calvary Recital

“Music is the universal language of mankind”~Longfellow

The pictures I took while Joe was playing in the recital were too bright. We had him sit for a picture when he was finished. He really did well. Awesome! I am very proud. Joe played the Gypsy Folk Dance by Mier. Joe dreams of owning a Baby Grand Piano. Joe says they are very responsive.

I feel honored and privileged to watch Joe play on the Grand Piano at concerts and the Baby Grand for his lessons at Linda’s house. The Grand Concert Piano has beauty and power. They have a quality of tone, clarity, and pitch consistency, not found in other pianos. I know he sounds like a concert pianist when he plays on them. We have a very nice Yamaha Clavinova Digital Piano that never needs to be tuned. It can play songs by itself! Jaycee and I have enjoyed this feature.

Joe is thinking of continuing his music when he gets to college. I think that would be wonderful. Joe is starting in Jazz band next year on the piano. He wants to continue playing the trumpet in the regular band. Joe is a talented young man! I watched and listened to our son play and I was just amazed! WOW! Joe was great! Linda called when Joe was at Will’s house. She told me to pass on her compliments to Joe and those she heard during and after the recital. Good work Joe! Below is a photograph of the teachers and the students that played for this recital. It was a great recital!

We went to Perkins after the recital and had dinner. Joe had his usual captain’s catch, Larry had a deli ham and lots a cheese omelet with pancakes, Jaycee had a grilled cheese and fruit, and I had a waffle with eggs, sausage, and bacon. We stopped by TSC and picked up some seeds for the garden. We arrived home, put stuff away, and changed into casual wear. Joe mowed the yard and went to visit his friend Will. Larry helped Jaycee ride her new bike while I walked Teddy. We made our final decision on where to put the garden. I brought Jaycee and Teddy back inside. Larry used Casey, the loader, and the rotatiller to get the garden ready. As soon as Larry came in the rain hit with thunder and lighting, a real downpour!

Sunday was a wonderful day!

Joe is on a Baseball team. We are going to the game soon. I will try and have pictures of Joe playing ball for tomorrows post.

"God loves each of us
as if there were only
one of us." ~Augustine

We are heading to Grand Forks today to watch Joe perform in the General Recital for the Greater Grand Forks Music Teachers Association, The North Dakota Music Teachers Association and The Music Teachers National Association this afternoon. I will post some pictures of Joe playing in my Monday post.
