Some years ago when Holly and I lived in Florida, we owned a 25 foot ski boat. Holly had never driven a boat before and I decided to teach her.
Yea I know, but hey I needed someone to drive while I water skied. After a day or so of teaching her the controls and rules of the water, it was time to take the helm herself.
So in her instructions when pulling a skier up, I told her to hammer it when the skier signaled they were ready. Yup, I forgot one thing, once the skier was up to slow up a little until they were at around 25 mph or they were comfortable.
You guessed it, she hammered it and never let up,
Now were flying across the water like there’s fire on my ass and I’m back there waving my hand to slow down, My spotter had no idea what I was trying to say, thought I guess, I was saying hi. OY, well finally I had to release and where do I land, by the weeds. OPPS..
Yup again it’s where these guys hang out. well now I’m swimming to beat hell for the open deep water and thinking that Holly will be there in a minute to pick me up, that would be great if she would have looked to see me gone. Well finally she came and asked what happened, I just said that we needed some more instructions and how to pull a skier.
This is only one of many of my life experiences with my best friend, (aka) wife.
If you are one that comes here to read my post, you have already known of some subjects I don’t write about and what I tend to shy away from. Although I do go sometimes and read some of these blogs and maybe comment once in a while, it has never been my cup of tea.
I have been shying away also from so much of the writings of the missing or murdered children. It was just so depressing to write. I do though like to write about life experiences, I love to write on our four-legged kids and some of their shernanadings . Maybe even a thing or two that my better half does, and she can do and say some things that just make me laugh. Here is one of her writings for an example
So in the future, I plan to start to write and post more of the things in our lives that we like and maybe don’t like. Their will always be the occasional post that is off track, but for the most part, things that are everyday experiences.
If you have something you think would make a good story, your always welcome to email me with it at [email protected] and I will get back to you.
In the meantime, grab your popcorn and I look forward to hearing from you.
Dale the dude as we call him is a 2-year-old male tiger cat. We adopted him from the humane society about three weeks ago . He got loose and was wondering for about two days until he got hungry. Like most kids he came home when his belly was growling. Dale has quickly got into out hearts and how could he not.
When we got him , he was still injured from when someone threw him, maybe out a car, and he landed and his feet, rubbing them raw. I don’t understand how Anyone could ever do that to any animal.
He loves to play, he also is a lap cat and has a great demeanor.
Dale the dude will always have a family here at our home, along with the rest of our kids. It’s a good thing I can afford to feed him, he eats like a horse. Ever since he got loose and came back after missing out on food for two days, he runs to the food dish four times an hour, just to make sure it’s still there. The joy he has brought to this family cannot be measured, I can only express it this way,
I went though it long enough and at times still do. My best advise to anyone being bullied is to pay no attention to it. What they want is a fight, if you don’t give it them, they get bored and move onto someone else.
Some people live for it and no matter what you say or do, It will continue until they are tired of getting no response. If you know you’re a good person and haven’t done what they accuse you of, then don’t waste your time on them, you have better things to do I’m sure.
Memorial day means a lot to me. It isn’t just a day off work, no, It’s a remembering time of what it really stands for. For the fact that our sons/daughters, fathers/mothers,wives/husbands and our forefathers fought for. For the rights and privileges that we so enjoy everyday.
One of those rights is the fact I can write this post without repercussions from our Government unlike third world countries.
To the men and women who have lost their lives in the act of defending our country and people, WE THANK YOU!
I am proud to live in this great country, proud to be an American, to our people who fight to defend us, I say
I wrote a post sometime ago and pulled the part of Sam out because My wife asked me too. She wasn’t wanting it to come back to her. Then last night, she just didn’t care if it did.
First of all, Sam would call us to cry about what was happening to her then boyfriend. She called to tell us one night where he worked and that Amy Burch called there to complain about him. Why someone would do that is beyond me. All’s fair in love and war, but doing that is pure desperation and low. She called us to tell that he was threatened to get off twitter or else they would go after Sam next. As a person who cared about her, he went off twitter that night. Why after a couple of days he came back, idk, you will have to ask him.
Then on a different occasion, She dmed Holly to tell her that Jane Doe was being protected by the sheriff dept. and that some anons were their as well. Said she knew Jane Doe and where she lived. This was the night after the two boys were found guilty.
Last night she goes on to say
This is complete and utterly bullshit,(In your words Sam). She did dm Holly and tell her about the anons and knowing the girl. Another thing to address,
Well I asked Dejay about this in a dm, she asked me not to screen-shoot the dm, but her answer was “I never thought it was true and nothing was ever shown to prove to me otherwise” So Sam, again you lie.
My advise to you is to come clean with everyone, take your licks and move on. People will be pissed and they will go off on you, but in time, they will come around as long as you are truthful. Trust is to be earned and not freely given. In time, you will earn it back. I don’t believe Sam is a bad person, I met her in person, seemed nice, but I think she got caught up in the moment and one lie had to be told to cover another one up. Pretty soon you forget what you have said.
Remember, Sam likes to talk. So in closing, we are not the only ones she said these things too and others will come forward with what was said to them also.
As I mention with respect to moving on, I am done with this conversation and I will also move on.
Some like to say that everyone has a right to free speech. It’s usually when whatever is written is something that they agree with. But when it isn’t what they agree with, then it is not. So what is free speech? Well I’m not sure. I would say that when you have mature adults who respect one another and one of them has an opinion, and others don’t agree, then they just agree to disagree. If not mature adults, then the next thing to do is start slinging mud at the other person.
After I wrote the first of my previous post, it became clear that free speech was not going to be accepted.
Free speech is a constitutional right. You may not agree with what someone says, but as long as it’s not illegal , then by law, its free speech. It’s a right we ALL have and our forefathers fought for.
I write post on here of my opinion from time to time, It may or may not be something you like or agree with, but it is just as much my right to do as it is yours.
What started out to be a support rally and just plain support for Jane Doe quickly turned into a free for all using the Steubenville rape as a means to bash others. Not only bash others but also any gossip that could be spewed. Anything and everything was thrown out there to see if it would stick, all along saying that they were in support of a rape victim. I call bullshit! All it was, was an excuse to fight,argue and just plain play childish games. There were those who, If they didn’t agree with someone, started putting out their personal information, fake anons using the reputation of the hacktivist group to go after someone for their own agenda, all along, again saying it was in the name of justice.
Then there were local leaks, to which I have no knowledge if they were true or not, and to be honest, don’t care coming into play. As I said, throw it against a wall and see if it would stick.
Then there was some ,who did nothing but make a mockery of the whole Steubenville Trial and rally’s.you used a rape victim and the people who were trying to get justice for her as your backdrop of gaining attention.
I think this person on RNB said it best
Very well said.
I don’t know who this person is, and there may be some that dislike her/him, I just agree with some parts of it and did not cut the screenshot.
I feel very bad for the good folks of this small town. I live in a small town and this could have been us instead of them. These people who just go about their everyday life are catching hell for something they have no involvement in. For the love of God, leave this to the grand Jury and Law Enforcement to deal with now.
One more thing before I end this post,
Does anyone remember why we started the #Steubenville rally’s? I do, and her name is Jane Doe. She was victimized not only by a few boys, but then again afterwards by some of the online people. Those of you that are to blame for this should be ashamed of yourselves.
Addendum, This post was written By Jon, Not anyone else. If you have a problem with what I wrote, then talk to me, not anyone else.
Now the Government has some problems with small town politics, this is evident as in the last nine months or so. But the good people of Steubenville are just that, good. As in any small town America, you have small town politics,(It isn’t who you know, it’s who you blow).
Now comes the town trash though social media to stir the pot, along with them comes every shit stirrer that you can imagine. I could name names, but that does nothing to help the good people of this town that has taken every jab to them. May I suggest that you pay no attention to them, if you see someone on social media saying something, instead of engaging them, block,delete them, whatever it takes. Pay them no attention. Without someone to argue with, they will get bored and move on. Trust me, they live for your arguing.
I live in a small town. It isn’t just Steubenville that has small town politics, it’s all towns. Where I live it’s also a part of living here, don’t blame the people for what they have to put up with.
My vision of towns trash is nothing more than a
Remember, block,delete,ignore,pay no attention. Give the good folks of Steubenville your support.
