Now are the clouds lowered Upon Our House

You can’t do anything for anybody.
Whenever you do, people take it the wrong way.
Or you do it wrong, in which case, they are right.
If you should have known you were wrong.
The worst of it is, it takes forever to tell the stories to explain how you were trying to do something kind and helpful when people who don’t believe in that kind of thing,or never did anything unselfish, think you were doing something wrong.
But what do I know?
I’m just a schmuck without two nickels to rub together.
I’ve made a few mistakes.
But I’ve learned from them.
On the other hand, I’d do it all again.
I ran into this yenta recently who’d done her best to ruin my life, I treated her with kindness and gave her some money.
I should have run.
We are in a strange time.
I don’t know if things are getting better, or if we are on a fast track to Armageddon.
A couple of days ago I turned on the TV, a lady who had shot her preacher husband in the back just got out of being incarcerated.
67 days she served.
Can you guess what her defense was at trial?
I think you can.
Could it have been…abuse?
You guessed it.
According to her testimony, after she shot him in the back, he said, while he was lying on the floor, his life’s blood pouring from his body, according to her, he said, “Why?”
The jury felt sorry for her.
She said he made her dress in high heels and a wig to have sex.
She never told anyone she was abused in any way.
A chill goes down the spine of half the men in America when a story like this comes out.
Please understand, I don’t blame women in general for what’s happening, but there are a lot of men walking around today who’ve been good to the women in their lives and had a figurative knife put in their back.
Husbands and wives, girlfriends and boyfriends are killing each other at an unprecedented rate.

When you hook up with someone of low character, you should expect something bad to happen, eventually.
Before my last relationship ended, for a while, I thought that the lady in question was going to kill me in my sleep.
Am I crazy?
No, she was, and I knew it.
But she was sane enough, I also knew, to trot out the abuse excuse, and I figured she’d probably get away with it.
As it turned out, obviously, she didn’t kill me.
But in the wreckage of the relationship she has proudly proclaimed her victim hood and accused me of “emotional abuse”.
She doesn’t know the nature of it, she has nothing specific except, she says, “He played tennis too much , he woke the baby and he ignored the baby.”
Oy Vey.

Like I said, I don’t blame women in general.
I was married to a very decent lady at one time who actually had compassion and made the break-up as easy as possible.
So to those who turn on members of the opposite sex and say, “They’re all dogs, or no good.” I say, you are wrong.
But, the good ones are definitely harder to find and hold onto than the ones who are looking for a fool.
So, good luck to you.
I’ll be back.

Pat Falls!!

Hello, everybody, this is my regular Friday blog.
Today I was with my little boy, we were playing in the sandbox and a pretty girl came by.
Patrick ran to the edge of the box, stood up on the edge and wham!
Head over heels.
I just missed him by a few inches.
I think he'll probably have a goose egg when he gets home tonight, poor little guy.
But you know, like father, like son.
I'm the same way.
If a pretty girl walks by I forget about everything else.
He cried a little, but forgot the incident in a couple of minutes and we went back to playing.

CNN has been broadcasting a series titled, "G-d's Warriors."
Don't watch it unless you want to puke all over yourself.
Guess who comes out to be the good guys and who comes out to be the bad guys?
That's right, the Jews and the Christians are the ones we have to worry about because Baruch Goldstein shot some Muslims screaming, "Kill the Jews" in a cave 13 years ago.
They don't mention what the innocent Muslims were screaming, of course, or that they had recently murdered two of Goldstein's closest friends, one of whom died in his arms.
CNN condemns the Christians because they support Israel.
The Muslims, if you didn't know already, are according to CNN, just misunderstood.

Friday the 17th part II

Hello everybody, this is my regular Friday blog.
Stick around, you might learn something you never knew before.
I know what you're thinking, you're thinking, who is this schmuck that thinks he knows something that other people don't know?
Well, you know, when Edison invented the light bulb, he told everyone the same thing, and they all thought he was nuts, just like you probably think I am.
When the Wright Brothers invented the airplane, and told people they could fly, everyone said, "listen to these crazy b**tards, they don't know nothing. "
Maybe I'm smarter than you are, and I can teach you things.
Or maybe I'm not smarter, and you don't know why.

But seriously, I had a very nice time with my son Patrick today.
He's very bright.
Like his Dad.
He knows his own mind, and he knows what he wants, just like his Dad.
He's very handsome, too, like his Dad.

He's only two, and he gets kind of tired out after a couple of hours, and his mind starts to wander, and he gets sleepy and a little cranky sometimes, like his Mom.

Just kidding.

Have a nice weekend, everybody.

If you call this living.

Workin' For The Weekend

I would send out for assistance but there's souls on the signal wire
And the corporation logo is flashing on and off in the sky
They're putting all your names in the forbidden book
I know what they're doing but I don't want to look
You think they're so dumb, you think they're so funny
Wait until they've got you running to the
Night rally, night rally, night rally
Everybody's singing with their hand on their heart
About deeds done in the darkest hours
That's just the sort of catchy little melody
To get you singing in the showers
Oh, I know that I'm ungratefulI've got it lying on a plate
And I'm not buying my share of souvenirs
You can stand to attentionYou can pray to your uncle
Only get that chicken out of here
Everyone gets armbands and 3-D glasses
Some are in the back room
And they're taking those night classes
You think they're so dumb, you think they're so funny
Wait until they've got you running to theNight rally, night rally, night rally
