Ok, one more song that may say what I don’t have the words to say. The magic in music, in songs, is the words and Lacy J. says it better that I can. Enjoy, think about it, and I will see y’all tomorrow.

Hot damn! I’m on a roll now!

Seriously though old friends, music is the best healer known to man. Good music, country music especially, can make you laugh or make you cry and if you listen to the words instead of the music itself you will know what I mean. Because it is the words that make the song, that reach into you and rip your heart out or send your spirits flying. It’s the words, not the tune that make music great.

Any of you guys, or gals, (I gotta remember that pc bullshit) waste your time playing golf? Since I think it is the biggest waste of land and water known to man I posted this just for you duffers. (teehee)

Yeah, I’m a golfer, and the reigning champion of my golf league yet again. That’s three championships in the five years of the league’s existence. Everybody hates my guts. Which is the way I like it.

Of course, it really helped that I almost died last winter and came back so lame and weak I could barely tap the ball fifty yards down the fairway. And sometimes I would stand there and tap it sideways three or four inches five or six times in a row. As I gradually improved along with my health, gradually going from worst golfer in the league (perhaps in the world) to best golfer in the league, you can imagine how my giant handicap was helping us slaughter people. Guys were threatening to have a special rules meeting to adjust my handicap but fortunately my partner is the secretary of the league…

We were all glad to hear you got over your health problems JP, and that is from the heart.

But a golfer? Guddamn man, can’t you find a better way to waste your time? You hit a little white ball with a stick, try to find it, then hit it again and chase it again. Over and over! At least baseball makes sense! You hit a little white ball with a stick and you don’t have to chase after it, try to find it, someone will throw it back to you! Then you can hit the little ball with your stick again and someone will throw it back to you again!

Doesn’t that make more sense than wandering all over the biggest waste of land and water known to man, trying to find a little white ball? LMOAO…Have a great day buddy, take care of yourself.

All right people, it’s time to stop with the bad news and melancholy bullshit and live it up! Lord knows I am have been in the dumps lately but it is time to get on moving on! Let’s get drunk and be somebody!

A new FUBAR for the day! It seems the Girl Scouts wants to “do more to serve every girl” or empower them or some such bullshit. Won’t that make all the “transgender” boys feel left out?

Nobody around today? That’s OK, I’ll see everyone tomorrow. I’m about done but I guess I should explain to my friends here why I have been kind of down the last few days. Friday was the anniversary of the death of the last man I served with in Cambodia, I am the only one left. So I have been hitting the bottle a little to hard, crying in my beer, because I will never forget all the men I served with who are no longer with us. R.I.P. Little John, we miss you. And a song that says how families feel when they lose a loved one in battle.

It is it’s own kind of curse, to outlive your friends. I’ve seen two of my best friends die already–broke my heart, both of them. My father knows this pain thoroughly because he’s nearing 100 and nobody he served with in WWII is left. Nobody. And none of his friends are left. His wife and one of his sons is gone. For God’s sake, even his grandchildren are old at this point. But to paraphrase Mark Twain: outliving your friends is bad but it’s better than the alternative.

Not just friends, brothers I served with in Cambodia years ago. We were closer to each other than to our own families because of where we were at and what we were doing. And when John died in 2006 that left just me, I am the only one left.

The last one. Skynyrd and Montgomery Gentry? Ain’t no better music ever been done! With all the fubars going on in our country remember this, everyone needs to kick back and just enjoy life once in a while or you will get eat up. Crank it up and enjoy! Have a shot or tall one and relax because the sun will come up in the morning just like always.

And I will add this one to the mix. People who have not walked a mile in my shoes don’t know shit about me.

Well crap, my post showed up twice, sorry everyone.

I’ll add one more before I call it a day. Been doing a little drinking, which gets me in these moods. I know better but oh well. Another great song and it kind of tells the story of many of us who served.

https://www2.bing.com/videos/search?q=big+and+rich&&view=detail&mid=3E0750D8727C140DC6813E0750D8727C140DC681&&FORM=VRDGAR

The verse that fits many veterans: These demons from my past haunt me every night and I can’t get through it. If I could forget them on my own I’ll let go and just move on but heaven knows I’m only human.

Good night everyone, talk to you tomorrow.

whiskeyriver

Where the hell did my post go? Ok, I’ll start again.

Feeling kind of down today, thinking about my brothers who are no longer with us. Every day is veterans day to me and some days the old memories pop up and puts me in a down mood.

This song isn’t really my kind of music but don’t listen to the music so much as pay attention to the words. Five Fingers Death Punch put this out and it tells a true story of many of our men who have fought then got lost when they came home.

Kind of down today for some reason, thinking about my brothers who are no longer with us. The biggest FUBAR we have ever had is our own government. They send men, and now women, into combat to fight and maybe die for no real reason we can see. And when many of those veterans get home they are forgotten, which is the biggest crime I can think of.

This isn’t my favorite kind of music but listen to the words. Pay attention to the message. Because it is the truth and at times, like today, I get the blues just thinking about the past.

Did you see Oblowme’s Painting? His left hand has “five” fingers and no thumb…And the wookie’s picture is just fugly.

I’m wondering why no one has photoshopped BO and his wide stance onto a toilet; it looks like it would be easy for someone(not me, unfortunately) who knows what they’re doing.

JPTravis

I’ll tell you what’s FUBAR to the nth degree, the damn outrageous budget deal Trump, McConnell, and Ryan cobbled together, which fully funds Planned Parenthood yet again and continues us on the road to national bankruptcy. I’ve never seen such a complete lack of leadership. I can’t see any one of those three faces on TV right now without throwing up a little in the back of my throat. All three of them are cowards of the worst sort. All the Democrats had to do was talk about a shutdown and the three of them put their tails between their legs and scurried for cover.

I looked out the door this morning and the ground is covered with this white shit! Did N. Korea nuke New Mexico last night? Is the sky falling? Oh wait, I know! Al Gordo’s climate change predictions are coming true! I’ll have to get one of my northeastern buddies to explain what this white shit is, I forgot what it is called.

Dayam, I’ll never get it right. I wanted to post one picture, not an entire website.

Pretty well sums it up. Had he proposed a military parade with only gay service members participating, it would be a celebration and front page news.

StrinaM

No it wouldn’t… they hate Trump and would find some way to spin it to where he’s a homophobe.

MGAP

No doubt they’d spin it to fit a narrative, but the event itself would be welcomed and celebrated by the left.

I’ll join you at the rear since I am a little windy today.

Just had dinner. Nothing in the fridge buttocks tail soup. Pretty good the next day.

whiskeyriver

Did you remember to shave the buttocks tail first? Never did like hair in my soup.

If this guy isn’t a FUBAR I don’t know what it is.
