Revisionist History

November 4, 2013

Creative History

I can honestly say that I have never doctored a resume’ for myself.  Of course, I have never actually given anyone a resume’ to get a job.  I have filled out applications, I have had job interviews and I have had people stop me and on my current job and offer me jobs.  Resume’s were not a common thing back in my younger days.  I do imagine that there are a lot of people who really dress up their resume’s and I have actually helped a few young people describe their work duties in a creative manor without telling a lie.

Here are  a few examples:

Educational Logistics – School Bus Driver

Environmental Beautification with State Institution-  Picked up trash on the side of the highway while on a prison work release program.

These are just a couple and I could think of dozens more but I would rather have dozens of comments  so give it a go in the comment section…remember this is a G rated comic so keep it extra clean.

Mess Destruction

Mess Destruction

As I am posting this it is Halloween night and I was thinking about how different things were when I was a kid.  Back then it was all about the candy.  We didn’t care diddly squat about costumes and pranks and all that stuff.  We wanted free candy because we didn’t get candy whenever we wanted it.  Candy was a rare treat.  Our parents didn’t keep us from eating candy for health reasons either…candy cost money, money we didn’t usually have.

We didn’t have a large selection of toys either.  Mostly we had two choices when it came to playing, either the front yard or back yard.  If it was raining we played on the porch.  If we got to play inside it was because there was a blizzard or something and that is very rare in Mississippi.  I can remember on Halloween that I ate candy I didn’t even like…simply because it was candy and that was a rare thing.

Now if you will excuse me I have to make another round in the neighborhood.  I am going as the comic strip character Bo Lumpkin.  I heard the neighbor down the street was giving away  full sized Hershey bars and I have to get there before they run out.

They Are Back

They're Back

I think our attitudes about government are shaped primarily by whether they are supporting us or we are supporting them.  If they are supporting us, Government is too small and should do more.  If we are supporting it, Government is too big and should cut back.

Hospital Humor- It Can Get Worse

It Will Be Worse

Now that the “Affordable Health Care Act” has gone into effect most of the people that I have talked to who tried to get it are having trouble getting on line.  Those that have got online have found that they can’t afford the “Affordable Health Care” that is available to them.

Over the years I have spent a large portion of my income on insurance and hospital bills.  I really hope that the government never gets to the point where they decide who is worthy of getting treatment.  I am afraid the cost of my upkeep would cause them to just write me off.  I only have about another year and a half left on the battery on my pacemaker-defibrillator  and the cost of replacement is about $60,000.  I am afraid a committee of bureaucrats would decide to just let my batteries run out…after all if they don’t think the government is worth keeping open why would they want to keep me running.

Y’all have a great weekend and I will post again Monday,

Burt and Kurt – Picture Perfect

Kurt and Burt-Picture It

Almost everyone has some type of camera with them these days.  Phone, Ipad or digital camera.  If you say you saw a U.F.O or Sasquatch you had better have a picture.  If you see Elvis at a burger joint in some out of the way town in Idaho be sure you take a picture with him because if you don’t, I promise you no one will believe you.

AGAC- Motivation

October 3, 2013

AGAC Winners

This has been a motivational comic for all my viewers.  I’m not sure about you but I have been helped a great deal.  I have learned to be a winner at quitting, to quit winning, and to be smart enough to quit while I am ahead…if I ever get ahead.  Now I am going to continue my habit of setting my goals low and failing to reach them.  Y’all have a nice day.

Creatures of Habit- Dangerous Times

Dangerous Times

I can understand the chickens being a little upset with the cows.  There is no excuse for that kind of bad spelling.

On the subject of Chicken, it seems that everyone is on the nugget or filet bandwagon.  Everyone is touting their all white meat chicken parts without bones as if that were a good thing.  I like chicken the way we used to cut them up.  I like the leg and thigh best but I was also fond of the backs.  When I was younger and times were hard I even enjoyed the neck from time to time.  You never see a chicken with a wishbone  (we called them the pulley bone).  Backs are now part of the breast or thigh.

I hate to attack a fellow southerner but it was all Col. Sanders fault.  He invented the art of cutting up a chicken into pieces that no one could recognize.  There have been times I wasn’t even sure it was chicken at all (but it was still finger lickin’ good). I like my dark meat chicken and I want the bone left in it.

You can have your white meat and ‘Eat Mor Chickin” if you want to, but as for me… Beef, it’s what’s for dinner.

Geezers Gone Bad- Continuing Education

Useful Skills

Sometimes I think our prison system is geared to fail.  For one thing they are now called correctional institutions.  I liked it better when they were Penal Institutions.  I am not a hard case…well maybe I am but I still think prison should be for punishment for crimes committed.  Punishment is the most successful form of correction.  One of my all time favorite movies was “Cool Hand Luke” starring Paul Newman.  If you have never seen the movie you might not understand some of this blog.  At the time I was a young boy and like everyone else I was rooting for the convicts.  Now as I look back I think the man with the reflecting sunglasses had it right.

Our judicial system is out of whack.  Our policemen are overworked and underpaid and they are blamed for crime rates when our judicial system just keeps sending hardened criminals back out on the streets with new skills that they learned in prison.

I do my best to obey all laws.  I buckle my seatbelt.  I drive the speed limit…or a little less sometimes, and I don’t tailgate.  I obey the laws because I not only respect the law,  I respect my fellow citizen.  My rights end where the next person’s begin.  My responsibility also ends where the next person’s should begin.

Music Man – Hank The Handy Man

Music Man

I would like to see that.  I bet it had to have a big strap on it.

I have a great connection on the  internet this morning and I am loading these comics to post for the next week.  In other words if you are reading this now I probably posted it last week.  I have written and posted devotionals for my church this morning at http://shilohbaptist.blogspot.com for the week.  I have uploaded these comics for this week making me several days ahead of my normal schedule. (Bet you didn’t think I had one.)  Now alas, my buffer is empty as of this writing but I have a week an a half to refill it.  I do have enough comics to start off with next week but the cupboard is lookin’ mighty bare.  I have lots of ideas, I just need a little comic time to get them ready.

Have a great weekend.  I know that I am going to give it my best shot.

Geezers Keeping in Touch

In Touch

Ooops!  Somehow I miscued and posted two comics yesterday and didn’t have anything ready to post for today.  I have an excuse, I have been busy on Facebook, keeping in touch with my kids, my family and setting up a Copperhead Jewelry page.

Now I have one less comic to post for next week which means  I need to do a couple of comics. These things don’t write themselves you know…well sometimes they kinda do but I still have to put the words on the page.
