There's nothing
wrong with
being made
poor,
but something
wrong with
being poorly
made.
A rich man
and a poor
have one thing
in common,
the Lord made
both.

What's the difference
in a city slicker
and a country picker,
one sings a song from
the heart working
side by side with
their neighbor,
the other
is busy dancing to
the beat of their
own drum.
It isn't where
you're raised
its where your
heart is.

What is the difference
in having things
to own or having things
that own you,
someone who has more of
a rich taste than they do
common scents.**skunky
huh??

Like the famous words,
I will repay you on Tuesday,
A brunette was assisting
a doctor who was questioning
a dumb blonde, who didnt
understand why she was
pregnant.
She explained that she always
used controceptives, but that
she had ran out of jelly
so she used what she had
the last two weeks from her
refrigerator.....
the doctor explained when
he said jelly he didn't
mean the same as you
eat.
The dumb blonde misunderstood
but was made aware of her
mistake......
When she left the two more
educated scoffed and snickered,
the smart brunette, trying
to impress the Doctor,
made her remark: dumb blonde!
The dumb blonde heard the
remark but felt it wasnt
worth her time or effort,
A few weeks later on A Tuesday
the smart brunette was arrested
for charges she couldn't
pay back.
What did the pregnant dumb
blonde
say to the smart brunette,
behind bars,
atleast I didn't think
my credit card was made
of rubber.



There was an elderly couple
who lived on a dirt road,
they lived in a small common
house,which was tasteful in its
own right.
The old woman told her frail
husband who was much smaller
in size and less of an over
bearing spirit than her, that she
insisted every year on a new car.

The chose car was flashy
much nicer than her neighbor's
by far.
Every day they would drive
up and down the dirt road
to be seen.
The windows were always
raised no matter how hot
it was . The woman of course
was always in the driver's seat.

One day as they passed while
all the neighbors were working
in gardens, I began to wonder
why she was always in a hurry
and why she even bothering to
take her husband for a ride if
he was going to always get
car sick.
Her husband looked ghostly as
he bid his weak hello with the
jest of a wave while balls of

sweat
drinched his brow. His wife's

face never
failed to be as red as a beet,
and her hair sprayed bee hive
hair do,was plastered with
perspiration to the side of her
head, like a leaning
tower, while she stirred up a huge
ball of dust behind them.

I asked momma why this old
woman always seemed in a hurry
and why she looked angry all the
time, at her poor husband who
couldn't help being car sick.

Sbe laughed,repling she isn't
angry just trying to get home
where she can get air.

I questioned , they dont
have enough air in the
car?

why mom dont they lower the
windows so they can slow
down long enough to enjoy
their ride and visit with
people.

She said she can't, because
people may know they aren't
rich enough for air condition,
and she was so worried
what neighbors would
think..................................
*** duh,***** which would
have looked worse, to admit
you're poor or that you'
dont have much sense.

facts of life, these things
happened and I wrote
them down,
thought you might like
to be in the know.........

I don't even know what to say!
This was wonderful. I loved its formlessness and rambling feel. I wasn't sure at first where you were going with the "dumb blonde" thing and being blonde myself, I wasn't really pleased with it. But I guessed you'd pull us out of it somehow - and you did.

Coco, I like the way you think, not to mention the way you write.
