I am going to enter this new year with a fresh agenda regarding my writing.

To start, let us look at some of Will Roger’s quotes to see how many make sense.

The quickest way to double your money is to fold it and put it back in your pocket.

Hmmm, that makes sense especially how the economy is today.

There are three kinds of men:

The ones that learn by reading.

The few who learn by observation.

The rest of them must pee on the electric fence and find out for themselves. (First two I would have to agree with but the third – Nope, not me!)

Good judgment comes from experience, and a lot of that comes from bad judgment. (Been around that block more times than I care to remember)

Thinking about them makes a lot of sense to me and that being said, this will be a short post. But before I go, here is something funny to think about as we enter our second week of 2022.

The DMV is a place many of us are not happy to go to for whatever reason, i.e., renew our driver’s license, pay for our auto tags, renew our manufactured home tags and so forth and so on. You got it right, the DMV is going to take the brunt of my comical side today.

Why don’t we like going there? Let’s face it – walk into any DMV and chances are you will find quite a few – in fact many – of America’s most pleasant, hardworking people – and what are they doing – why doing one of our most favorite pastimes which is – waiting in line for a DMV employee to get back from his or her break. 

Ever wonder what it meant when someone tells you to eat an apple a day? If you say or think, “An apple a day keeps the doctor away” that is not the reason I had in mind. I mean, think about it for a moment. What else could it mean except “eat seven apples a week.” Stay with me – it may, I say – it may get better!

Here’s a question for you – If you happen to buy scented toilet paper, when are you supposed to smell that stuff? My guess is that there were several people doing it wrong for a long time.

Coming from Pennsylvania Dutch country – certain areas spoke what they called Pigeon English. My only concern is that when you go to learn Pigeon English, couldn’t that be rather messy? Had enough? Okay – I will do my best to come up with better material next week.

They are not listening to me!

That’s it – Until next time!

  1. You have your DMV and we have a whole lot of Government Departments to which common people have to go for various things. Ours is a highly bureaucratised government at every level from village administrations to our Federal Government. The angst you fell at the DMV is a daily nightmare for many Indians.
    Pigeon English has its counterpart in people like me who speak good English much to the discomfort of many English! I have had my share of being asked how I spoke such “good English” and being rather disturbed!

    1. We all have things we have to live with but we – pardon the expression – suck it up and move on. One day at a time. Take care my friend and have a great day.
