Weather: Back to the Lake, hot as hell.

The dock at Mom’s house got a little use yesterday, Becker, my daughter, grandkids and I had a good swim yesterday. The water was just right. The kids were learning to swim and I was cooling this big body of mine off. It felt so good I think all of us are heading back out there again today.


post turtleWhile suturing a cut on the hand of a 75 year old rancher whose hand was caught in the squeeze gate while working cattle, the doctor struck up a conversation with the old man.  Eventually the topic got around to Obama and his role as our president.  The old rancher said, ‘Well, ya know, Obama is a ‘Post Turtle”

Not being familiar with the term, the doctor asked him, what a ‘post turtle’ was.    The old rancher said, ‘When you’re driving down a country road and you come across a fence post with a turtle balanced on top, that’s a ‘post turtle’.
The old rancher saw the puzzled look on the doctor’s face so he continued to explain.      “You know he didn’t get up there by himself;   he doesn’t belong up there;   he doesn’t know what to do while he’s up there;   he’s elevated beyond his ability to function;   and you just wonder what kind of dumb ass put him up there to begin with.

”     Best explanation I’ve heard yet of Obama.
