Vacation photo

Mrs. AOW took this photo without giving me any notice:

The picture was taken at Diamond Resorts Greensprings in Williamsburg - in the master bedroom.

This morning, we reserved a used minivan with a ramp. In a few weeks, the van will arrive here to our house for our final approval. We have to test it out before we make the purchase.

The world really has gone mad!

What a mess America is in!

Time for humor

With thanks to Big Bubba...

Crumpled Bills

With a very seductive voice the woman asked her husband, "Have you ever seen twenty dollars all crumpled up?"

"No," said her husband.

She gave him a sexy little smile, unbuttoned the top 3 or 4 buttons of her blouse, and slowly reached down into the cleavage created by a soft, silky push-up bra, and pulled out a crumpled twenty dollar bill.

He took the crumpled twenty dollar bill from her and smiled approvingly.

She then asked him, "Have you ever seen fifty dollars all crumpled up?"

"Uh... no, I haven't," he said, with an anxious tone in his voice.

She gave him another sexy little smile, pulled up her skirt, and seductively reached into her tight, sheer panties... and pulled out a crumpled fifty dollar bill.

He took the crumpled fifty follar bill, and started breathing a little quicker with anticipation.

"Now," she said, "have you ever seen $50,000 dolars all crumpled up?"

"No way!" he said, while obviously becoming even more aroused and excited, to which she replied.

"Go look in the garage."

One of the homeschool families gave Mrs. AOW and me a vacation for an end of the school year teacher present.  How cool is that?

This will be our first vacation since I had my stroke in 2009.

Mrs. AOW will load my scooter into the Crown Vic's trunk, and off we'll go for some r&r.

One of Mrs. AOW blogging friends will be meeting us at our destination.

Forget blogging during vacation! I have some serious partying to do!

Time for humor

With thanks to FreeThinke:
A prominent nutritionist was addressing a large audience at the Mayo Clinic....

"The material we put into our stomachs should have killed most of us sitting here, years ago. Red meat is full of steroids and dye. Soft drinks corrode your stomach lining. Chinese food is loaded with MSG. High transfat diets can be disastrous and none of us realizes the long term harm caused by the germs in our drinking water.

But, there is one thing that is the most dangerous of all and most of us have, or will eat it. Can anyone here tell me what food it is that causes the most grief and suffering for years after eating it?"

After several seconds of quiet, a 70-year-old man in the front row raised his hand, and softly said, "Wedding Cake."
This will be my new joke to tell at the VFW on Friday night, when I go to the pool tournament!

By the way, my occupational therapist has made me a new device so that I can play pool with only one hand. I need lots of practice, though.

Definitely a miracle!

Mustang recently posted one of the best military stories I've ever heard.

Read Marine Survives 3-mile Fall.

A miracle like that doesn't just happen!

Russian Road Adventures

In Russia, dash cams are required by law.

Take a look at the video (emailed to Mrs. AOW by Mustang):

Talk about having a bad day!

"Dog Eats Paralyzed Man’s Testicle As He Sleeps"

Not a Pit Bull.

Not a Rottweiler.

Not a Doberman.

It was a dog-ette!

The world is a dangerous place if you sleep naked!

This Weekend

I haven't been thinking much about blogging lately because I'm getting ready to go to another coin show.  I always study up for weeks in advance, and that's what I've been doing lately. 

I have pages of notes for this trip to the coin show.

I've been doing a lot of research because a couple of my friends have bankrolled me to make some buys for them.  As a former coin dealer, I still can get the dealer's discount when I make purchases at these coin shows.  Plus, and I hate to say it, a man with a mobility device gets treated more fairly by the dealers.

Maybe I can make some good buys for myself too!  But right now, the bid/ask for precious metals is low, so lots of dealers are in too deep and won't sell at the new lower prices.

The paratransit van will pick me up before the sun rises, and I'll stay at the coin show all day long.  For almost 3 years after my stroke, Mrs. AOW had to go to the coin show with me because of bathrooming issues.  Now I can manage on my own!  Except that I fall in the john once in a while.  The guys at the coin show come to pick me up when I do fall; I call them from my cell phone, which I always wear in a special pouch around my neck

Wish me luck so that I can make some good buys - for my friends and for myself.  Now is a good time to invest!
