Tom's Journal.

Foreword in German:

Hallo Freunde und Leser,
ich muss/get zu Bett zurückziehen, bald, aber ich muss etwas Gutes mit Ihnen teilen. Ich hoffe, dass nichts fehlt oder in der Übersetzung verloren. Was lustig ist in einem Land oder Sprache, ist nicht immer gut empfangen, in einem anderen...
Wenn ich war in Deutschland, Anfang 1968, fühlte ich, dass das deutsche Volk mehr ernst waren, und "Zielorientiert" - im Vergleich zu anderen Ländern und Menschen .... nur meine bescheidene meinung. Aber das ist ein Grund, warum das deutsche Volk sind eine große Nation! Sie bemühen sich stark für Exzellenz und produzieren sehr finden Maschinen und Produkte! 20% bis 25% der Amerikaner kommen aus deutscher Abstammung, und Sie haben geholfen, Amerika in eine große, starke, smart, Nation aufzubauen. Allerdings schlecht, böse Menschen schleichen sich und unser Land nach unten bringen, indem Sie so viel Essen, Geld und Vorteile zu illegalen Ausländern, die sich weigern zu arbeiten und in unserer amerikanischen Kultur assimilieren!! Die KJV Bibel sagt, "Wenn Sie nicht arbeiten, und du sollst nicht essen." Und
noch einen schönen Tag.
Herzliche Grüße,
Tommy Schuckman

I took a nap today for a few hours and woke up about 3 hours later, and felt great !    I rarely take naps in the day time,  afraid that I might miss something important,   but I pride myself on my ability to change my habits  ---- and that is so important to me losing weight.    I left some good pork ch0ps in the Frig. for a few days, and hope they are still OK to grill and eat.   I might add a sliced onion, etc.   

I thought that posting these:  'APHORISMS'   below would be 'cool' --- as I see much truth in them, and just wanted to share them.   There is so much "bad news" on TV,  enough to choke a horse !   I can only watch so much of that non-stop, negativity,  and then I must take a break,  to air out my brain !    I don't care if you all want to call it a "diversion"  or a get a way.    Tommy Schuckman,  needs a BREAK !   
      I remember reading that Jesus once said that the world will always have those in poverty and disappointments.   So I just happen to know how to get my mind off the "Bad, Fake, NON-STOP, negative, ranting and ravings of the 'Lame Stream Media' and terrible things that happen all over the world.    It's like long distance swimming or running....   you need to take a short break every once in a while...  or die.    I am not in the Army anymore,  so I don't have to "Keep up with the troop movements."    See the true, funny jokes below and have a good laugh and smile ! 

That great musical Band:  The Beatles,  used to sing a song called:  "Money can't buy you love."    True !   But it sure helps to put gas into your Buick, so you can get to an important meeting in the Upper Peninsula !    There are many ways to "Deal with things in Life."   Have a few bucks in your pocket just gives you a few options in life, and that is so nice.   
        I have helped out many people in my life, in many ways, even with gifts of money ---- only to get taken advantage of, deserted, abandoned,  robbed, and back stabbed !   We need to just READ an important scripture that deals with this challenge, even though we are all imperfect and sin every day:    "Some men's sins are open beforehand,  going before to judgment;   and some men they follow after."    --- 1st Timothy 5: 24.    

Recently,  I got some negative medical news and challenges.   But soon after I got some GOOD, positive News and a new friend who likes me.   So,  I am enjoying the current happiness and hope, and so thankful for God's gentle mercies and gifts.    I believe that I have cause to rejoice..... at least for now.   

And I am going to continue to quote a few prime scriptures that help me and make me happy !!   I still have that "Freedom and Liberty," in the U.S.A.    I, and many of my close 'combat brothers' and friends sacrificed a few years of our lives to Protect and Serve  ---America.   And even though our ranks are thinned out every year,  as more old Soldiers, Marines, and Sailors go to meet their Maker and Lord,  there are still many of us who can still "TYPE"   --TALK --- and VOTE !!   We can at least have a little bit of joy and happiness, after we elected [against all odds, cheap tricks, illegal actions and ploys!] a good, smart, honest, Man..... and not a wimp or a witch !!   May the Truth come out and the oinks be brought to justice.   PTL.

Warm Regards,
Tommy Schuckman

Yes!!  Here is a great picture of me,  Tom Schuckman,  back in 1989,  after I just got laid off from Chrysler,  and 6 long years on the street ---- but got back into college to study more welding skills, etc.      Praise the Lord !   A dream come true.     >>>>>   Below  >>>>>>>


Money can't buy happiness -- but somehow it's more comfortable to cry in a Mercedes than in a Datsun. 
The nicest thing about the future is that it always starts tomorrow.    
If you don't have a sense of humour, you probably don't have any sense at all.
How come it takes so little time for a child who is afraid of the dark to become a teenager who wants to stay out all    night?    
Business conventions are important because they demonstrate how many people a company can operate without.   
Why is it that at class reunions you feel younger than everyone else looks?    
There are no new sins; the old ones just get more publicity.    
There are worse things than getting a call for a wrong number at 4 a.m. - it could be the right number.    
No one ever says "It's only a game" when their team is winning.    
Do you realize that, in about 40 years, we'll have thousands of old ladies running around with tattoos? And rap music will be the Golden Oldies!  
After 60, if you don't wake up aching in every joint, you're probably dead.   
Always be yourself because the people that matter don't mind and the ones that mind don't matter.
Life isn't tied with a bow but it's still a gift.
