Every Sunday night back in the day, the whole family gathered 'round.

The Western Channel

Having a very hot summer here and shut in a lot more than usual, so I've been watching The Western Channel a lot. I grew up watching a lot of those old TV Westerns. Good stuff.

One show that I get to see Monday-Friday is "Paladin."

TV shows today have lousy theme songs. Well, except for "Two and a Half Men."

A friend of mine walks his dog every day. And guess what? Every Muslim who sees that dog looks daggers at the dog!

Fill your yard with dogs - and pigs! Muslim repellant!

Fun with match sticks

Armenian boxer Bagrat Grigoryan has an interesting hobby:

To make a St. Nicholas Church which is situated on Aktobe he needed 26 days, 34 000 matches, 4 litres of glue and 3 litres of lacquer.

Happy birthday, America! - 4th Of July Graphics

Mrs. AOW and I might go out to watch some fireworks tonight.

Tomorrow night, if it doesn't rain, Steve will take me to the VFW, where the guys are having a one day late celebration in honor of America's birthday. Steve can't transport my scooter in his pickup truck if it rains, so I'm hoping for good weather.

Time for humor

With thanks to Big Bubba, who mailed me this great bit of advice

A guy is walking along a Florida beach when he comes across a
lamp partially buried in the sand. He picks up the lamp and gives it
a rub.

A genie appears and tells him he has been granted one wish.

The guy thinks for a moment and says, "I want to live

"Sorry," said the genie, "I'm not allowed to grant
eternal life."

"OK, then, I want to die after the Democrats balance
the budget and eliminate the debt.

"You crafty little bastard," said the genie.
