Will I live to be 80?...serious stuff

Will I Live to see 80?

Here's something to think about.

I recently picked a new primary care doctor. After two visits and exhaustive Lab tests, he said I was doing 'fairly well' for my age. (I just turned 68.)
A little concerned about that comment, I couldn't resist asking him, 'Do you think I'll live to be 80?' He asked, 'Do you smoke tobacco, or drink beer or wine?'
'Oh no,' I replied.. 'I'm not doing drugs, either!'
Then he asked, 'Do you eat rib-eye steaks and barbecued ribs?
'I said, 'Not much... my former doctor said that all red meat is very unhealthy!'
'Do you spend a lot of time in the sun, like playing golf, sailing, hiking, or bicycling?'
'No, I don't,' I said.
He asked, 'Do you gamble, , or have a lot of sex?'
'No,' I said.
He looked at me and said,... 'Then, why do you even give a crap?

Southern IQ, Retirement, Fishing

A redneck was stopped by a game warden in Central Mississippi recently with two ice chests full of fish. He was leavin' a cove well-known for its fishing.

The game warden asked the man, 'Do you have a license to catch those fish?' 'Naw, sir', replied the redneck. 'I ain't got none of them there licenses. You must understand, these here are my pet fish.'

'Pet fish?'

'Yeah. Every night, I take these here fish down to the lake and let 'em swim 'round for awhile. Then, when I whistle, they jump right back into these here ice chests and I take 'em home.'

'That's a bunch of hooey! Fish can't do that.'

The redneck looked at the warden for a moment and then said, 'It's the truth Mr. Government Man. I'll show ya. It really works.'

'O. K.', said the warden. 'I've got to see this!'

The redneck poured the fish into the lake and stood and waited. After several minutes, the warden says, 'Well?'

'Well, what?,' says the redneck.

The warden says, 'When are you going to call them back?'

'Call who back?'

'The FISH,' replied the warden!

'What fish?,' replied the redneck. ............

Moral of the story: We may not be as smart as some city slickers, but we ain't as dumb as some government employees.

You can say what you want about the South, but you never hear of anyone retiring and moving north.

Critics gave this move a C+ and they were wrong.

Yahoo users gave it an A and they were right.

Click "The Blind Side" to see more.

Oh...it was on cable pay per view....best movie I have seen based on fact in many months.

Highly recommend.

Kay Hagan and I agree...

I agree with all of these items that Senator Hagan supports---

Payday lenders (Joe Guarino asked me so out of respect I did a little research.) Joe, I agree with much that she supports. Don't you?


and firefighters--


and schools---


and our NC coast--


more jobs---

financial reform and education---

support for export manufacturing--

With me being somewhat conservative I was quite surprised with the numbers of items that I support along with Senator Hagan. How about you? ...and others of course.


(did a little editing cause I might have made an error and removed Joe's name from the title....when I read this post today I felt that the reader might have thought I was negative about Joe which is not the case.)
