We Remember

May 24, 2020

Over Memorial Day weekend I visited the new (2018) Veterans Memorial in Perryville, MO. It is a replica of the Vietnam Wall in D.C. Made of black granite from India as is the one in D.C. It is the same size and has the same names as D.C. but is easier to get to than the one in Washington D.C.

it is impressive and sobering. If you are ever in the area (1 1/2 hours South of St. Louis) visit it and pay your respects to the brave men and women (8 females and all nurses) on the Wall. There are  some photos below which will give you an ideal of its grandeur

Haircut

May 6, 2020

Blessed are those that can give without remembering and take without forgetting.

One day a florist went to a barber for a haircut. After the cut, he asked about his bill, and the barber replied, ‘I cannot accept money from you, I’m doing community service this week.’

The florist was pleased and left the shop.

When the barber went to open his shop the next morning, there was a ‘thank you’ card and a dozen roses waiting for him at his door.

Later, a cop comes in for a haircut, and when he tries to pay his bill, the barber again replied, ‘I cannot accept money from you, I’m doing community service this week.’

The cop was happy and left the shop.

The next morning when the barber went to open up, there was a ‘thank you’ card and a dozen donuts waiting for him at his door.

Then a Congressman came in for a haircut, and when he went to pay his bill, the barber again replied, ‘I cannot accept money from you. I’m doing community service this week.’

The Congressman was very happy and left the shop.

The next morning, when the barber went to open up, there were a dozen Congressmen lined up waiting for a free haircut.

And that, my friends, illustrates the fundamental difference between the citizens of our country and the politicians who run it.

As Ronald Reagan said: “Both politicians and diapers need to be changed often and for the same reason.”
