“One Man’s Opinion”
Part I
My wife and I spent the earlier part of last week with my parents in Hartsville, SC. For those of you that don’t know, Mom’s 82 and Dad’s 91. They aren’t quite as speedy as they use to be physically, but their minds are still pretty sharp. Anyway, Joan and I took a couple of days to do some clean up and repairs around the house. Joan took the inside and I took the outside. Now mind you, I pay someone to do my yard here because I felt like I was getting to old to be out there all the time, other than to work in our garden. But in Hartsville, I’m the Kid doing the work. So here I am, using the weed eater to clean the drainage ditches in front of the house sweating and huffing and puffing and the neighbor across the street whom I’ve know since I was 14 years old, called out and asked if I could clean their drainage ditch too. Now, I grew up with his son, he and his wife are in the same age range as my parents so they too aren’t as speedy as they once were. I had to agree, because I was the Neighborhood Kid that day. So the moral of the story is: Anytime you’re feeling old and run down, go around some Really Old people. If only for a little while you’ll feel like a Kid again.

Part II
The HOT SPOT Garden / Farm is doing well. So far we’ve harvested a few strawberries, a few white potatoes a couple of onions and some extremely fine heads of Romaine Lettuce. We have about 100 green tomatoes, a dozen or so baby squash, about 20 or more little cucumbers, a few peppers and countless little beans all of which will be ready to pick in a few weeks.. All total we planted, two types of tomatoes, potatoes, okra, two types of squash, bell peppers, watermelon, Catawba melon, cucumbers, green beans, lima beans, cabbage, lettuce, corn and onions. It won’t be long now. Just, One Man’s Opinion. “Live Long and Prosper”

Rodney and Wilma his wife are awakened at 3 o'clock early one Saturday morning by a loud pounding on the door. Rodney gets up and goes to the door where he sees a drunken stranger, standing in the pouring rain. "Could you give us a push" says the swaying stranger."Not a chance," says the husband, "It is three o'clock in the morning." He slams the door and returns to bed. "Who was that?" asked his wife. "Just some drunk guy asking for a push," he answers. "Did you help him?" Wilma asks. "No. I did not. It is three o'clock in the morning and it is pouring with rain outside. His wife said, "Don't you remember about three months ago when we broke down and those two guys helped us? I think you should help him, and you should be ashamed of yourself. Rodney does as he is told, gets dressed and goes out into the pouring rain. He calls out into the dark, "Hello! Are you still there?" "Yes," comes back the answer. "Do you still need a push?" calls out Rodney. "Yes. Please." comes the reply from the darkness. "Where are you?" asks Rodney. "Over here on the swing," replies the drunk.

Police in Norfolk, Virginia, interrogated a suspect by placing a metal colander on his head and connecting it with wires to a photocopy machine. The message ' He's lying' was placed in the copier, and police pressed the copy button each time they thought the suspect wasn't telling the truth. Believing the 'lie detector' was working, the suspect confessed.

A football coach walked into the changing room before a game. He looked over to his new signing and said, "I'm not supposed to let you play since you failed arithmetic, but we need you to be in the team. So, what I have to do is ask you a math question, and if you get it right then you will be allowed to play." The player agreed, so coach looked into his eyes intently and asked, "Okay, now concentrate hard and tell me the answer to this. What is two plus two?" The player thought for a moment and then answered, "4?" "Did you say 4?" the coach exclaimed, excited that he had got it correct. Suddenly all the other players on the team began shouting..., "Come on coach, give him another chance!" Michael was watching the soccer game between Manchester United and Liverpool; The stadium was packed and there was only one empty seat - next to Michael.

Said Michael in a matter-of-fact tone. 'So why didn't you give the ticket to one of your friends?' 'They've all gone to the funeral.' Said Michael.

Historical Truths Most people got married in June because they took their yearly bath in May, and still smelled pretty good by June. However, they were starting to smell, so brides carried a bouquet of flowers to hide the body odor. Hence the custom today of carrying a bouquet when getting married. Baths consisted of a big tub filled with hot water. The man of the house had the privilege of the nice clean water, then all the other sons and men, then the women and finally the children. Last of all the babies. By then the water was so dirty you could actually lose someone in it. Hence the saying, "Don't throw the baby out with the bath water." Houses had thatched roofs-thick straw-piled high, with no wood underneath. It was the only place for animals to get warm, so all the cats and other small animals (mice, bugs) lived in the roof. When it rained it became slippery and sometimes the animals would slip and off the roof. Hence the saying "It's raining cats and dogs." There was nothing to stop things from falling into the house. This posed a real problem in the bedroom where bugs and other droppings could mess up your nice clean bed. Hence, a bed with big posts and a sheet hung over the top afforded some protection. That's how canopy beds came into existence. The floor was dirt. Only the wealthy had something other than dirt. Hence the saying "dirt poor." The wealthy had slate floors that would get slippery in the winter when wet, so they spread thresh (straw) on floor to help keep their footing. As the winter wore on, they adding more thresh until when you opened the door it would all start slipping outside. A piece of wood was placed in the entranceway. Hence the saying a 'thresh hold."

In those old days, they cooked in the kitchen with a big kettle that always hung over the fire. Every day they lit the fire and added things to the pot. They ate mostly vegetables and did not get much meat. They would eat the stew for dinner, leaving leftovers in the pot to get cold overnight and then start over the next day. Sometimes stew had food in it that had been there for quite a while. Hence the rhyme, "Peas porridge hot, peas porridge cold, peas porridge in the pot nine days old." Sometimes they could obtain pork, which made them feel quite special. When visitors came over, they would hang up their bacon to show off. It was a sign of wealth that a man could "bring home the bacon." They would cut off a little to share with guests and would all sit around and "chew the fat." Those with money had plates made of pewter. Food with high acid content caused some of the lead to leach onto the food, causing lead poisoning death. This happened most often with tomatoes, so for the next 400 years or so, tomatoes were considered poisonous. Bread was divided according to status. Workers got the burnt bottom of the loaf, the family got the middle, and guests got the top, or "upper crust." Lead cups were used to drink ale or whisky. The combination would sometimes knock the imbibers out for a couple of days. Someone walking along the road would take them for dead and prepare them for burial. They were laid out on the kitchen table for a couple of days and the family would gather around and eat and drink and wait and see if they would wake up. Hence the custom of holding a "wake." England is old and small and the local folks started running out of places to bury people. So they would dig up coffins and would take the bones to a "bonehouse" and reuse the grave. When reopening these coffins, 1 out of 25 coffins were found to have scratch marks on the inside and they realized they had been burying people alive. So they would tie a string on the wrist of the corpse, lead it through the coffin and up through the ground and tie it to a bell. Someone would have to sit out in the graveyard all night (the "graveyard shift") to listen for the bell. Thus, someone could be "saved by the bell" or was considered a "dead ringer."

A teacher was giving her Primary pupils a lesson in developing logical thinking. "This is the scene," said the teacher. "A man is standing up in a boat in the middle of a river, fishing. He loses his balance, falls in, and begins splashing and yelling for help. His wife hears the commotion, knows he can't swim, and runs down to the bank. Why do you think she ran to the bank?" A little girl raised her hand and asked, "To draw out all his savings?"

One Wednesday Martin demanded of his boss, "I must have a pay rise. You should realize there are three other companies after me." "Really?" replied Martin's boss, "And who might these companies be?" "AT&T, Georgia Power and Comcast," answered Martin.

One day David went to an auction. While he was there, he bid for a parrot. David really wanted this bird, so he got caught up and thoroughly involved in the bidding. He kept on bidding, but kept getting outbid, so he bid higher and higher and higher. Finally, after he had bid much more than he had intended, David won the bid; the parrot was his at last. As he was paying for the parrot, he said to the auctioneer, "I hope this parrot can talk. I would hate to have paid this much for it, only to find out that he can't talk!" "Don't worry." said the auctioneer, "He can talk. Who do you think kept bidding against you?"
