Settling in for a long winter's nap

After all the Christmas goodies on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day, Amber, the kitten that Mrs. AOW and I got a few months ago, and I have settled in for our long winter's nap:

Amber has celebrated her first Christmas. What a hoot!

On Christmas Eve, she freaked out when she saw those big flakes of snow flying around.

On Christmas morning, Amber got so excited about her Christmas present - a catnip toy - that she flipped up in the air and came down in her water dish! Mrs. AOW couldn't grab the camera in time, of course. Amber was off and running to get away from all that spilled water.

Christmas Surprise

Sometimes, when I go to the VFW, I throw a few bucks into the football pool.  Just to join in with the guys.  I hardly ever win the pool.

Yesterday, I won the pool for the second quarter of the Redskins game!

Because the VFW is closed for Christmas Eve and Christmas Day, I won't collect until Wednesday at the earliest.

When I do collect, I'm going to give Mrs. AOW the 50 bucks.  I never know what to buy her for Christmas.  This year was worse than most years because, ever since she lost all that weight over the summer, she doesn't even want candy anymore!  Candy used to be my old standby for something to give her.

Of course, Christmas is really about the Best Surprise of all:

Christmas humor

(hat tip to Texas Fred for the joke below)

Dear Santa,

How are you? How is Mrs. Claus? I hope everyone, from the reindeer to the elves, is fine. I have been a very good boy this year. I would like an X-Box 360 with Call of Duty IV and an iPhone 4 for Christmas. I hope you remember that come Christmas Day.

Merry Christmas,



Dear Timmy

Thank you for your letter. Mrs. Claus, the reindeer and the elves are all fine and thank you for asking about them. Santa is a little worried all the time you spend playing video games and texting. Santa wouldn't want you to get fat. Since you have indeed been a good boy, I think I'll bring you something you can go outside and play with.*

Merry Christmas,

Santa Claus


Mr. Claus,

Seeing that I have fulfilled the "Naughty vs. Nice" contract, set by you I might add, I feel confident that you can see your way clear to granting me what I have asked for. I certainly wouldn't want to turn this joyous season into one of litigation. Also, don't you think that a jibe at my weight coming from an overweight man who goes out once a year is a bit trite?





While I have acknowledged you have met the "nice" criteria, need I remind you that your Christmas list is a request and in no way is it a guarantee of services provided.

Should you wish to pursue legal action, well that is your right. Please know, however, that my attorneys have been on retainer ever since the Burgermeister Meisterburger incident and will be more than happy to take you on in open court.

Additionally, the exercise I alluded to will not only improve your health, but also improve your social skills and potentially help clear up a complexion that looks like the bottom of the Burger King fry bin most days.

Very Truly Yours,

S Claus


Now look here Fat Man,

I told you what I want and I expect you to bring it. I was attempting to be polite about this but you brought my looks and my friends into this. Now you’re just disrespecting me. I'm about to tweet my boys and we're gonna be waiting for your fat ass and I'm taking my game console, my game, my phone, and whatever else I want.




Listen Pizza Face,

Seriously? You think a dude that breaks into every house in the world on one night and never gets caught sweats a skinny gang banger wannabe?

"He sees you when you're sleeping; He knows when you're awake".

Sound familiar, genius?

You know what kind of resources I have at my disposal? I got your shit wired, Jack. I go all around the world and see ways to hurt people that if I described them right now, you'd throw up your Totino's pizza roll all over the carpet of your mom's basement.

You're not getting what you asked for, but I'm still stopping by your crib to stomp a mud hole in your ass and then walk it dry.

Chew on that, Petunia.

S Clizzy


Dear Santa,

Bring me whatever you see fit. I'll appreciate anything.




That's what I thought you’d say you little bastard.

Santa put that little punk in his place, huh?

With thanks to Big Bubba:

I-65 will be closed tomorrow across Tennessee and Kentucky. They are hauling a 200 ton lump of coal to Mount Rushmore in South Dakota so they can add Barack Hussein Obama to the Mount Rushmore monument.

B. H. Obama has stated on national TV that he believes himself to be the fourth greatest U.S. President, behind Washington, Jefferson and Lincoln but greater than Theodore Roosevelt.

They had to settle for coal, because they couldn't find a 200 ton piece of shit.

Truth stranger than fiction

From The Many Faces of Death:
As a pathologist was making the first incision at autopsy in New York in 1964, the “corpse” suddenly leaped up and seized the poor man by the throat. The corpse lived, but the pathologist suffered a cardiac arrest and died on the spot.

Here's another, this one from Crazy and True:
Jose David Diaz-Marrero was recently sentenced to eight years in prison....

According to the Ocala Star-Banner, the 20-year-old had been accused of perpetrating a string of burglaries between December 2010 and January 2011.

But the sentence reflects more than your simple garden-variety break-and-enter.

Because the laptop, jewelry, 42-inch screen TV and DVD player stolen from Holli Tencza's home can ultimately be replaced.

The ashes belonging to her late father and two deceased Great Danes cannot.
And not just because Diaz-Marrero and his two accomplices also stole the urns in which the ashes were contained.

Rather, they cannot be returned in their entirety because the trio mistook the urns' contents for "crushed pills" and reportedly proceeded to smoke and snort them.
I have no idea why I'm posting this - except that I do enjoy weird stories.

Christmas Poem

I couldn't resist stealing this original poem!

From FreeThinke:

Holiday Howl

There’s nothing to tout.
There’s nothing to buy.
The stores have run out.
Your funds have run dry.

Baracklaus Has Captured Our Town!

For his mill you’re just grist.
He thinks fun’s a crime,
So he clenches his fist,
When you seek a good time.

Baracklaus Has Captured Our Town!

He monitors your reaping.
He’ll ration what you take.
The things that you try keeping
He will grab for others’ sake!

So, you’d better not sing,
You’d better not dance.
Obama’s the King,
He might look askance.

Baracklaus Upon You Will Frown.
Baracklaus Has Captured Our Town!

He’s the stick-thin man
With the big black ears.

Christmas Shopping

Today is the first day of Mrs. AOW's Christmas vacation, so we're going Christmas shopping at one of the big local malls.  I am looking forward to having a day out!

This will be an all day trip. We'll eat lunch at the mall, too.

I am so much better this year, so this shopping trip should be much easier than any we have taken in the past.

I plan to shop for myself at the bookstore.  I need some new joke books!

Mrs. AOW has a few items that she wants to get at Macy's.  While she's occupied with looking for those items, I'm going to look around the mall to see if I can find a Christmas present for her.  She has mentioned a few things that she'd like to have.

Mrs. AOW is going to drive the Crown Vic to the mall. That way, we'll have a place to put the packages. She will likely have to make several trips to the parked car so that we don't have to lug packages all over the place. Besides, if we have our own car at the mall, that way we don't have a coming-home time already set and can take our time with this expedition.

I will travel to the mall on MetroAcess, and Mrs. AOW will meet me there. I'll be using my scooter for this shopping expedition.

10 year olds on love and marriage


When they're rich.

The law says you have to be eighteen, so I wouldn't want to mess with that.
- - Curt, age 7

The rule goes like this: If you kiss someone, then you should marry them and have kids with them. It's the right thing to do.
-- Howard, age 8


It's better for girls to be single but not for boys. Boys need someone to clean up after them.

Talk about low!

Looks like some Democraps took mentally retarded and mentally ill people to the polls and instructed them to vote for Obama:
The father of a mentally handicapped woman claims his daughter and others were "carted off" to a North Carolina polling site last week and "coaxed" into voting for President Obama by workers of the group home where she stays -- a claim the owner of the home disputes and that apparently has not yet triggered an investigation by election officials.

The father, Cecil Pearson, said his daughter - who is 40 but has the "mentality ... of a 7-year-old" - was "brainwashed the night before" and then taken to a Roanoke Rapids polling site on Friday to vote. He said his daughter told him what happened when he picked her up on Sunday.

"They brought her a piece of paper and they indicated which block to check," Pearson [said,] "She voted for Barack Obama and was coaxed into doing that." He claimed "more than four" people were brought to the site.
More here.

There is more than one report of this kind of crap!


Well, now we know how Obama got elected again.  The mentally deficient and the nut jobs voted for him!

A pig walks into a bar and orders 15 beers and then knocks them back.

"You've had a lot to drink," says the bartender.  "Would you like o know where the bathroom is?"

"No," says the pig.  "I'm the little pig that goes wee-wee-wee all the way home."

Tomorrow, Mr. AOW and I will go down to our neighbors' house for Thanksgiving dinner.  Our neighbors always put on a feast for a king! 

I hope that, after all that eating and drinking, I don't go wee-wee-wee all the way home! Ha, ha. [Mrs. AOW isn't laughing]

Not so unusual back in the day

Back when I was a kid, a professional photographer took a photo of me with my toy guy and holster.  Recently, my brother is working on a digital-photos family album and emailed me a digital copy of that photo.

Back in the 1950s, nobody thought that photos of kids with firearms were weird or that they promoted violence.

And I grew up in Southern California!

Times may have changed, but not as far as the Scottsdale Gun Club is concerned. A lot of people are signing up for these special photos with Santa.

How much voter fraud was there?

Is this some shit, or what?
St. Lucie County, Florida also in Allen West's district Had 141.1% Turnout; Obama Won County.(PP).Out of 175,554 registered voters, 247,713 vote cards were cast in St. Lucie County, Florida on Tuesday. Barack Obama won the county.

When faced with the astronomical figures, Gertrude Walker, Supervisor of Elections for St. Lucie County, said she had no idea why turnout was so incredibly high...
There is more to read. Check it out!

Not that anything is going to come of all this fraud.

We have to suffer through another four years under Barack Hussein Obama.

Veterans Day 2012

Remember what today means:
Many Americans mistakenly believe that Veterans Day is the day America sets aside to honor American military personnel who died in battle or as a result of wounds sustained from combat. That's not quite true. Memorial Day is the day set aside to honor America's war dead.

Veterans Day, on the other hand, honors ALL American veterans, both living and dead....
Thank a veteran today. Make a point of it.

As a veteran of the Vietnam Era, the first time that anyone thanked me for my service was in 2006. Not that I expected any thanks! I was honored to serve my nation.

Here is a video that I found over at Mrs. AOW's site:

Try to thank a Vietnam Era veteran today.

Churchill was right

Spotted this over at Z's site:
The best argument against democracy is a five-minute conversation with the average voter.
America is supposed to be a republic.

Is America a republic any longer?

This past election proves that high voter turnout does equate with responsible voting.

Free stuff from the government is what a majority of voters care about it.

Damn idiots.

Damn parasites.

The America that we knew and loved is gone.

The America that I willingly and proudly served while I was in the military is gone.

Difficult to believe

But it is what it is.

The day after the election, I see that Americans are stuck on stupid. To have re-elected Barack Hussein Obama!


The end of the dream that used to be America.

We have to make the best of this disaster. We have no other choice now.

The liberal news anchors are smug in their haughtiness. Do they really believe that Barack Hussein Obama's leadership into socialism is the better choice?

Supposedly, Hurricane Sandy is going to slam us here in Northern Virginia.

Not that we often believe the weatherman. He's wrong most of the time.

Today is my birthday! 

Getting old is a bitch, but getting old is better than not being around to celebrate Birthday #63!

Mrs. AOW and I did celebrate my birthday in advance on Friday evening when we attended a homeschool party for Mrs. AOW's students.  The homeschool group always has lots of food at their parties.

This damn storm had better not interfere with the birthday celebration that Mrs. AOW had planned for me later this week.  We were planning to go out to breakfast at IHOP this week during the day, when the restaurant is less crowded.  We won't be going to IHOP if there are heavy rains and dangerous winds.  The last thing we need is a car accident!

I'm not sure what Mrs. AOW has planned for my birthday dinner today.

Jokes about hunting

Q: What is the American Indian word for "lousy hunter"?

A: Vegetarian.


A group of guys went out deer hunting.

They drew straws to find out who would start doing the cooking.

The guy who drew the short straw made a rule: "If anybody complains about my cooking, then he must take over doing the cooking."

The first day, nobody complained.

On the second day, the cook went out and got a dead groundhog and threw it into the pot fur and all.

Nobody complained.

On the third day, the cook added deer turds to the pot.

Finally, a complaint!

One guys sputtered, "This tastes like sh*t!" Pause. "Good, though! Good, though!"

Obama "chats shit"

(Title of this post inspired by this at Jihad Watch)

Obama is always yapping about how Islam has been such a part of America.

What a crock!

My Daily Trek, here is the appropriate American response:
Dear Mr. Obama:

Were those Muslims that were in America when the Pilgrims first landedl?
Funny, I thought they were Native American Indians.

Were those Muslims that celebrated the first Thanksgiving day?
Sorry again, those were Pilgrims and Native American Indians.

Can you show me one Muslim signature on the: United States Constitution?
Declaration of Independence? Bill of Rights? Didn't think so.

Did Muslims fight for this country's freedom from England?

Did Muslims fight during the Civil War to free the slaves in America ?
No, they did not.

In fact, Muslims to this day are still the largest traffickers in human slavery.
Your own half-brother, a devout Muslim, still advocates slavery himself, even though Muslims of Arabic descent refer to black Muslims as "pug nosed slaves." Says a lot of what the Muslim world really thinks of your family's "rich Islamic heritage," doesn't it Mr. Obama?

Where were Muslims during the Civil Rights era of this country?
Not present.

There are no pictures or media accounts of Muslims walking side by side with
Martin Luther King, Jr.or helping to advance the cause of Civil Rights.

Where were Muslims during this country's Woman's Suffrage era?
Again, not present.

In fact, devout Muslims demand that women are subservient to men in the
Islamic culture So much so, that often they are beaten for not wearing the
'hajib' or for talking to a man who is not a direct family member or their

Yep, the Muslims are all for women's rights, aren't they?

Where were Muslims during World War II? They were aligned with Adolf Hitler.
The Muslim grand mufti himself met with Adolf Hitler, reviewed the troops
and accepted support from the Nazi's in killing Jews.

Finally, Mr. Obama,
where were Muslims on Sept. 11th, 2001? If they weren't flying planes into the World Trade Center, the Pentagon or a field in Pennsylvania killing nearly 3,000 people on our own soil, they were rejoicing in the Middle East.

No one can dispute the pictures shown from all parts of the Muslim world celebrating on CNN, Fox News, MSNBC and other cable news networks that day.

Strangely, the very "moderate" Muslims who's asses you bent over backwards to kiss in Cairo, Egypt on June 4th were stone cold silent post 9-11. To many Americans, their silence has meant approval for the acts of that day.

And THAT, Mr. Obama, is the "rich heritage" Muslims have here in America...

Oh, I'm sorry, I forgot to mention the Barbary Pirates. They were Muslims.
And we can add November 5, 2009 -the slaughter of American soldiers at Fort Hood by a Muslim major who is a doctor and a psychiatrist who was supposed to be counseling soldiers returning from battle in Iraq and Afghanistan.

And what about Benghazi? Did you forget about that as well?

That, Mr. Obama is the "Muslim heritage" in America

Muslim Heritage, my a**!

Time for Humor

Thanks, Will!

A burglar broke into a house one night. He shined his flashlight around, looking for valuables, and when he picked up a CD player to place in his pack, a strange, disembodied voice echoed from the dark saying, "Jesus is watching you."

He nearly jumped out of his skin, clicked his flashlight out, and froze. When he heard nothing more after a bit, he shook his head, promised himself a vacation after the next big score, then clicked the light on and began searching for more valuables. Just as he pulled the stereo out so he could disconnect the wires, clear as a bell he heard, "Jesus is watching you."

Freaked out, he shone his light around frantically, looking for the source of the voice. Finally, in the corner of the room, his flashlight beam came to rest on a parrot. "Did you say that?" he hissed at the parrot.

"Yep," the parrot confessed, then squawked, "I'm just trying to warn you."

The burglar relaxed. "Warn me, huh? Who in the world are you?"

"Moses," replied the bird.

"Moses?" the burglar laughed. "What kind of people would name a bird Moses?"

"The kind of people that would name a Rottweiler Jesus."

That area of the Mall stinks to high heaven too.

Getting that dirty river water into that pool was a two-year project!

Anybody with any knowledge of what i's in the water from the Potomac River could have seen this FUBAR coming. Even the fish go belly up in the nasty water of the Potomac.

Wheelchair Ramp Adventures

It's a long story, but the end result was that Mrs. AOW and I slipped on the ramp here at home yesterday while we were rushing to one of my therapy sessions.

I slid out of the wheelchair and landed in the street on my butt!

Mrs. AOW flagged down one man on the street to help us. A few minutes later, a guy from India stopped here on his own because he saw Mrs. AOW running in and out the house like a crazy person.

We were so lucky! The guy from India was a doctor! He knew exactly how to get me back into the wheelchair.

We had to cancel my therapy session, of course. Too bad! The therapist had an electric stim home unit for my arm so that I can work on waking up my arm and hand at home.

I'm okay and didn't get hurt at all.

From all the lifting that Mrs. AOW had to do, her back is out. Big time! She may be suffering too much to take me to tonight's cruise-in.

The miracle of modern medicine!

The Bioness System:

I have made excellent progress with the cuff below the knee -- the best of anyone else they've ever tried that cuff on this many years after a stroke.

In a few weeks, the PT therapist will try the thigh cuff.

Wish me luck!  If I become the bionic man, my life and Mrs. AOW's life will be so much better!

Democraps are idiots!

Former Secretary of State says, "Blame Bush forever!"

How do they think up this CRAP?

This is going to be one helluva ride to Election Day 2012.

I Want to See this Movie!

Mrs. AOW has found out where the movie is playing near us, so we'll go this coming weekend or next week.

A Day Out With Family

Yeah, I'm up early this morning. Here's why.

Mrs. AOW's cousin has a backyard swimming pool something like the one below.  Except that there is a built-in table with umbrella on on side.

This afternoon, Mrs. AOW is hauling me out there for an afternoon in the pool.  It's a heated pool.
