No. 50

This post is the fiftieth week of posting for me. Much has happened to me and my wife  in this time and I hope to continue the pace and post material to give you a smile, a laugh, and and occasional guffaw. Thank you all and please continue to drop by.
The candles and gas lights will always be on.
1. My Ouija Board refuses to answer my questions on the grounds...that it might incriminate me.
2. Don't go out on a limb...unless you are 
a squirrel.
3. Don't turn over a new leaf...until you have read the last one carefully.
4. While I was thinking out of the box...
they flattened the sucker and recycled it.

5. Guess's up to you to make 
your life interesting.
6. The probability of finding your true self
is...about the same as losing your false self.

7. Nothing is as far yesterday and tomorrow.
8. Your "in depth" research should include...
more than the yellow pages.

9. Do one thing well...and make sure you get the credit for it.
10. The measurement of a person's achievement should not be awards on the wall...
but, man, they look good!

In Bram Stoker's Victorian novel, Dracula has a mustache, as most of the men did at that time...but no movie Dracula has ever had a mustache.
Think it over as you talk among yourselves.

Here's a flash for you science fans, right -handed people 
tend to chew on the right side of their mouth. 
How much did this brilliant study cost the taxpayers?

Party politics is the most narrow-minded occupation in the world.
A guy raised in a straight  jacket is a corkscrew compared to a 
thick-headed  Party politician.
WILL ROGERS, March 1925

"There is very little dignity, very little sportsmanship, or very little
anything in politics. It's only: Get the job and hold it!"
WILL ROGERS, Nov. 1932

I am pleased to announce the newest blog on the block,"


My very own award, soon to be coveted; or ignored; or despised.
It will be awarded(?) from time to time to anyone I deem worthy  for
 reasons of my own. There are no requirements whatsoever.
You might, if you like, write an acknowledgement or a decline of award
 statement, or nothing at all, if you prefer. The first recipient of the
Award is my friend, Gary Phillip Pennick of "Klahanie."
for being Gary, a good friend!

Some great aphorisms and words of wisdom here.

Greg said...

Funny stuff! Couldn't agree more it's up to you to make your life interesting.

Count Sneaky said...

BELINDA: Thank you Belinda. Nice to have you aboard. I claim no wisdom here, I just want to make your day a little brighter and leave you with a smile. Come back again I try to have a new post in place every Friday. My best.

Count Sneaky said...

GREG: Yeah, I think, for what it's worth, my experience is that life waits for no one. You have to get on the bus and meet your fellow passengers. My best.

So, what about right-handed people with a dominant left eye, or left ear? I once asked an audiologist if people could be left-eared or right-eared. He told me that I had nerve deafness in my right ear, and that's why I favored the left. I was disappointed. Now I learn that I am almost blind in my right eye. And all along I thought I had discovered something "important" and it hadn't cost me anything!!
I was wrong.

Count Sneaky said...

JUDIE: I have somewhat the same problem. I'm right-handed with a dominant left ear. I can hardly hear out of my right ear, but when I have tests run they come out about the same. In addition my right foot is slightly smaller than my left one. I don't know what this means. Fortunately, the right side of my head is as bald as the left side.

Hilarious post!!! I'm kinda new around here.. But I guess you'd know that.. :) :)
I have an award for you.. I'd love if you'd accept it.. :D

Carol J. Garvin said...

Huzzah, indeed. Grandpa writes a great blog, and now I'm also glad to find yours.

joylene said...

I love number 5 because it's so darn relevant. Wonderful blog, Count. Thanks to klahanie for steering me in your direction. Have a terrific week.

Paul said...

No.1: That's probably why Christians are not doing Ouija: they (we) are all sinners!

No.4: That's probably why folks are not swimming out of the pool, lest water may be sucked out!

Count Dracula's mustache: That's probably our Count is wearing a tux, to show the change of his belly's size since week one....:):)

Have a nice day.

Count Sneaky said...

PENCIL GIRL: Thanks. I think we are all kind of new at this.
I would be honored to accept your award. My best.

CAROL J. GARVIN: Grandpa does indeed write a great blog from a very exotic location. I, too, am glad you found my blog. and come back often. My best.

JOYLENE: Yes. The world doesn't owe anyone an interesting life. But, the opportunity in this time is to make your life very
interesting. My best.

TALON said...

"Guess's up to you to make
your life interesting." - I like that so much and it's so true. It's not what happens to you, but what you make of it.

Glad you and Helen are doing well.

I'm smiling at Strutz's grin - Stripey had a similar one this evening...makes me wonder what they've been up to :)

Count Sneaky said...

PAUL: My Ouija Board will not even answer me anymore much less make moral judgments. I think it needs new batteries or something. Oh, please don't bring up the Count's belly size.
I'm working on it, even though my Ouija Board told me it is a
lost cause. Thanks for coming by.

GEM said...

I subscribe whole heartedly to NO.5. You only get out of life what you put in.... Very interesting and amusing post.

Take Care
