    BOY I HOPE THIS COMES OUT RIGHT! quote " Never go to bed mad, always wake up with a kiss and a smile and say " I love you" when you say "see Ya later" Cause you never know what the the next moment will bring".


    Food for thought!

    This is an amazing story. After reading this , decide which choice you make !! Jerry is the kind of guy you love to hate. He is always in a good mood and always has something positive to say. When someone would ask him how he was doing, he would reply, "If I were any better, I would be twins!" He was a unique manager because he had several waiters who had followed him around from restaurant to restaurant. The reason the waiters followed Jerry was because of his attitude. He was a natural motivator. If an employee was having a bad day, Jerry was there telling the employee how to look on the positive side of the situation.Seeing this style really made me curious, so one day I went up to Jerry and asked him, I don't get it! You can't be a positive person all of the time. How do you do it?" Jerry replied, "Each morning I wake up and say to myself, Jerry, you have two choices today. You can choose to be in a good mood or you can choose to be in a bad mood. I choose to be in a good mood. Each time something bad happens, I can choose to be a victim or I can choose to learn from it. I choose to learn from it. Every time someone comes to me complaining, I can choose to accept their complaining or I can point out the positive side of life. I choose the positive side of life."Yeah, right, it's not that easy," I protested."Yes it is," Jerry said. "Life is all about choices. When you cut away all the junk, every situation is a choice. You choose how you react to situations. You choose how people will affect your mood. You choose to be in a good mood or bad mood. The bottom line: It's your choice how you live life." I reflected on what Jerry said. Soon thereafter, I left the restaurant industry to start my own business. We lost touch, but I often thought about him when I made a choice about life instead of reacting to it. Several years later, I heard that Jerry did something you are never supposed to do in a restaurant business: he left the back door open one morning and was held up at gunpoint by three armed robbers. While trying to open the safe, his hand, shaking from nervousness, slipped off the combination. The robbers panicked and shot him. Luckily, Jerry was found relatively quickly and rushed to the local trauma center. After 18 hours of surgery and weeks of intensive care, Jerry was released from the hospital with fragments of the bullets still in his body. I saw Jerry about six months after the accident. When I asked him how he was, he replied, "If I were any better, I'd be twins. Wanna see my scars?" I declined to see his wounds, but did ask him what had gone through his mind as the robbery took place. "the first thing that went through my mind was that I should have locked the back door, " Jerry replied. "Then, as I lay on the floor, I remembered that I had two choices: I could choose to live or I could choose to die. I chose to live." "Weren't you scared? Did you lose consciousness?" I asked. Jerry continued, "...the paramedics were great. They kept telling me I was going to be fine. But when they wheeled me into the ER and I saw the expressions on the faces of the doctors and nurses, I got really scared. In their eyes, I read 'he's a deadman'. I knew I needed to take action." "What did you do?" I asked. "Well, there was a big burly nurse shouting questions at me," said Jerry. "She asked if I was allergic to anything. 'Yes' I replied. The doctors and nurses stopped working as they waited for my reply. I took a deep breath and yelled, 'Bullets!' Over their laughter, I told them, 'I am choosing to live. Operate on me as if I am alive, not dead'." Jerry lived thanks to the skill of his doctors, but also because of his amazing attitude. I learned from him that every day we have the choice to live fully. Attitude, after all, is everything.


    Discard this , and pretend like it did not make your day brighter as it did mine. If you elect!

    BlackGun - yes quite a few of us here are older than dirt - that's okay though because it means we've grown and know more than when we were little children.

    And as always a very inspirational story my friend.

    Yeah BG add me to the list too. As for your day, when folks ask how I am I always say marvelous. Sometimes I really am and sometimes I'm trying to convince myself I am but either way it always works.

    And on to the graveyard shift...2 funerals today and one in the morning. Been a really busy weekend. I hate that. In my line of work I don't really like being busy ya know?

    Man, some of you guys must be as old as me, talking about Bob Wills and his Texas Playboys. They will now play, 'you are my sunshine followed by lay that pistol down babe.'

    Yo! I Remember all them things. Choose to be "happy", but sometimes you got to sacrifice your own for that of others.
    Still got RC up here for 25 cents in the machine at Pechin's store (a story in itself)- still home of the 15 cent hamburger and a three or four course meal for a buck. Senior citizens eat free on Mondays, ( unless they go over $1.25 ) then the have to pay the difference and they bitch!

    When I was a little lad, dad use to take me to town for groceries and gas for the car. The one horse town had two gas pumps with handles on the side of them, you'ed have to pump up the gas into an overhead glass jar that showed how many gallons you wanted, then with the hose in your gas tank you released the contents from the glass jar into your car or truck. I'll bet they had some doozy of a fires around the nation in those days when someone broke the filled jars.

    Our ice box held a 25 lb block of ice. Our drinking water came from natures spring welling up out of the ground, we got what we needed to drink and stored it in a 1o gallon water jug with pour spot.

    We had a huge veg garden, and a cow and a horse.

    No electricity, batterey operated console radio, no bath tub but a huge wash tub, kids sit, adults stand. We had no bathroom indoors, outdoor privy complete with monkey ward catalog...which served two purposes...reading and...you get the idea.

    Ah, the good old days.

    I remember all on that list, but I'm still a yungin at 50! LOL!

    We still got RoC Cola her in Alabama. Live just across the Chattahoochee River from Columbus, Ga. where it is manufactured and was the corporate headquarters until a year or two ago. Drive by the bottling plant everyday of the work week.

    Sitting here and listening to Bill Black Combo. Good skating rink music.

    Great internet radio station KDAV, www.kdav.com Lubbock, Tx. Only bad thing about this station is I can't get it in my pickup. DAMN Texicans!! Add some more power to that transmitter! Make it a WWL, New Orleans, or a WLS, Chicago from the old days!

    Yeah I remember those old days of WLS-Chicago and KAAY-Little Rock (King Biscuit Flour Hour) and one from TN I can't recall their letters that played Mahalia Jackson. God bless AM radio!
    As for me I was raised on Billie Holiday, Duke Ellington, Count Basie, Little Jimmie Dickens, Ray Price, Hank Williams, Nat King Cole, & Patsy Cline. Folks go nuts when they see my cd collection. All that plus 70 & 80's rock and roll and country.
    There's still a few of the general stores in our area and one that has the old type of gas pump you were refering to earlier.
    First time I ever saw meat in a supermarket wrapped in cellophane I was 19. We always had a butcher in the store in our town (my uncle).
    And I'm only 43.

    BTW, Black Jack gum either made a short-lived attempted comeback in the early 80's, or the local grocery cleaned out its stock room.

    Hey Steve, was the mimeograph or the rexograph the older of the duplication systems? I just know that whatever brain damage I suffered was from sniffing all the alcohol these machines used. I would come home from grade school with blue ink all over my hands and clothes. How about the candy dots on the paper rolls, you sure got your fiber with your sugar at the Commando Cody Saturday Matinee. For about $1 at least four kids could eat themselves sick on candy. Boy did that bring back memories, thanx for the stimulation.

    Well, BlackGun, I'm not 50 yet but I remember most of the things on that list.
    The list brought back some good memories. Thank you!

    How about the test patterns you watched before regular programing started about 4 pm on the TV? Of course there was Captain Video and his Video Rangers!

    "We made grease spots of many a good town...

    and left the cop's head's spinnin' 'round and 'round.

    They wouldn't chase, they'd just run and hide.....

    but me and that Merc stayed side by side!"

    Remember:

    "This is London calling...."
    The Red and Blue networks....
    That big Zenith consol radio in the living room.....and no weather reports on the radio.
    The "Fireside Chats" from President Roosevelt.....
    Meatless tuesdays....
    "Rosie The Riveter"....
    Savings stamps.....
    A, B, and C gas stamps....
    Blue and Gold stars hanging in the window....when a blue star was taken down and a gold one replaced it, the whole neighborhood cried.
    35mph speed limits on all highways.
    The Joe Louis, Billy Conn fights.....
    After rationing was off, gas at 16.9 cents a gallon.....
    New cars with wooden bumpers......
    Nash, DeSoto, Kaiser, Frazier, Crosley, Hudson

    Guess I must be older than dust!

    Yeah LTS, Ol' John Prine, How about Angel from Montgomery and Dear Abby- "You are what you are and You ain't what you ain't".
    Think I'll go down stairs in the middle of the night, smoke cigarettes and sit in the dark in that "thrift store" chair. Put a John Prine record on, you know we gotta slow it down for a while.
    53 years old but a lot of miles, (hard ones).
    Happy Turkey Day- I'm going' to Cleveland to pick up my son it the morning! Yeah!
    Oh, I better load up an extra clip for the .40 S&W for the trip through the ghetto! That's what you call a real "Ghetto Blaster". Monday's the opening day of PA Buck season. Seen a couple real nice ones coming in from W VA tonight! Me and the .35 Whelen are gittin' itchy!

    Now, here's a question:
    The 1940 and 1944 Olympic Games were not conducted because of the outbreak of WWII in 1939. What was the significant difference between the 1948 Olympic Games held in London and others in history?

    280freak -

    You got it half right.

    The Germans and the Japs were not invited because of their part (agressors) during WWII.
