A Hair Cut for the Summer.

Tom's Journal.

The Buckinghams - Kind Of A Drag

For me, getting a hair cut makes me feel good all over, and I dislike long 'curls' tickling my neck and ears when I sleep at night. I am losing some of my hair anyway and no body pays me or signs my checks for looking like a 'cool character', so I like to be comfortable, and I like my old barber. And barbers give me all the latest 'real' news in the Kenosha community area, and info, etc. 'Why change canoes up stream?' I had to go to Sears to buy more belt sander belts [ 4 inches by 21] to refinish the picnic table in back, and stain it/ finish it. Sharon and I spend a lot of time on the picnic table that we built together 5 years ago when we first met. She loves to help me build and make things out of wood, and even wanted me to teach her how to weld, and cut steel with a torch! I like to pamper her and serve her the food I make and grill. I also bought some bananas, grapes, plums and strawberries for her today on the way home from my chores in the 'big city' on the Lake [Michigan].

My days run like this: I like to write a list of things to do the day before, and then attempt to knock out the important ones first-- and then see how many I can do before my knees and back get too painful. I remember when I worked at AMC/ Chrysler how I used to make the same type of list in the morning at work-- but as the day went on, I lost some of the drive [the spirit is willing-- but the flesh is weak]. I used to work out and power lift AFTER work for the past 25 years and that was my fav. sport which made me strong--- and I have the pix to prove it.
1st Timothy 4:8 says: "for bodily discipline is only of little profit, but godliness is profitable for all things, since it holds promise for the present life and also for the life to come." NASB. That doesn't mean weight lifting and exercise are no good. Paul is just setting the correct priorities. For what ever reason people think I loved to lift weights-- I still benefited from that sport and liked the feeling of being strong, until about 6 years ago while arthritis said, 'HELLO!' So many other people have it much worse than I do-- losing jobs, investments, homes, families, self respect and hope.

Do you know that I can safely BET that another big tragedy will befall us [Americans] every week that comes and goes ??? We lose more of our Freedoms, Liberties, Stability's, Protections and Treasures every single week! I wonder when the majority of Americans [with an I.Q. over 70] will figure this out before the Socialist Messiah in the WH does enough irreparable damage so that we will never be able to dig ourselves out of it. Merry Old England WILL go bankrupt pretty soon and WE will, of course, 'bail them out' -- just as the Feds will bail out California in 2 weeks!!
The folks who drink cheap wine every morning in the ghetto, who never worked at a job more than 2 years, who never graduated from high school, who worked for ACORN, could care less if America sinks or swims.... just as long as the dog in the WH "shares the wealth" of people who do care-- do work, do save some money and invest. But that's all part of the master 'Global Plan' of which RINO's [Republicans in name only...] are also a part of. They are snakes too. There will only be two classes then: rich and poor.

If indeed, this is NOT rocket science--- just like reading and understanding the Bible is NOT that hard, why is it that the majority of Americans and Western Europe just let some 'slippery snake' lie and steal from them?? Remember, PLEASE, that I am NOT advocating violence or anarchy! If I did-- I might be in some right wing militia thing. But I am well know as a Bible loving Christian warrior who depends totally in the promises of JESUS CHRIST. Martyrdom would be the easy way out... and it's still a distinct possibility, and yes-- even in America! I recently told my dear wife that I would rather just die peacefully in my own bed with her holding my hand. Death is nothing more than a 'gate' leading to eternal life. As the apostle Paul said in Phil. 1:21, "For to me, to live is Christ and to die is gain."

The days, weeks and months are just flying by so fast for me. I can see Winter and Snow already.. LOL! The garden is growing like 'Jack and the Bean stalk', except that I might have to replant the cukes. With the deafening lack of help [ in these "Last days"] to take care of the yard-- I just do it myself even if it takes a bit longer. No complaints.

I have a big day planned for myself tomorrow, chores and things to get done. I may also carve a scripture in cherry wood-- something from Philippians perhaps. And I need to make some more cabinets for the bathroom, etc. When I get the notion to build something or a project, I DO IT! Lest 'Murphy's Law' kicks in.

Sharon said that she just started writing in her own Blog again today-- after being 'out of action' for a while. I will try to post it in my Journal. She needs to expand and make more friends too.
