September 25 I was
pulled over recently at the tollbooth around mile 86 on the West
Virginia turnpike. The state police car followed me up to the toll
booth and I stopped in one of the lanes. The cop asked, "Why are we
stopped in one of the driving lanes." I responded, "I know it is
stupid but where in the hell else was I going to pull over". I tried
to look like I didn't have much sense well actually I acted
naturally. I was several miles over the speed limit but all I got
was a warning. This was probably the first time I have been pulled
over in 7 years and I pretty regularly test the speed limit. Slow
down and don't pick up that iPhone. My prospective defense for the
next time I am pulled over is " Officer the dog ate the speedometer"

September 19 I
went to Rite Aid and was taken care of by one of the nicest sweetest
persons. Went to the Post office and was taken care of by the nicest
smiling man. Came home and the trash truck backed down so I would
not have to wait. The guys in the trash truck waved and beeped as
they drove by my house. On top of all of this it is a beautiful.
West Virginia fall day. Need a computer to keep up with all of the
blessings on this West Virginia day.

Muslims who say that Islam is a religion of tolerance and peace are

Well I swan.
WVU fans need someone to dislike. Since we no longer play certain
teams that have fallen on bad times like Penn State, Pitt, and
Virginia Tech, I would nominate Notre Dame. This school is simply
the most overhyped average performing school in all of sports
September 7 I
love my doctor and all the people that work there. But I counted at
least 10 "please do not" do this or that signs in the outer office.
Please do not put up any more "please do not " signs.

August 31 I
am heading out to the pre 5K-shuffle race for dinner with Pretty Boy
Hughes and Allan Galloway. Pretty Boy and me used to do 5K races now
we merely shuffle but we are very blessed that we can do that. To
the Aldersonian readers this is also known as the race between The
Woman and The Democrat. I would caution anyone not to put too much
credence into Pretty Boy's reports and to pray for Allan having to
listen to us argue about who cheats the most each year.
August 28 Just
4 days to the big Labor Day 5k in Charleston. Today I get an
anonymous message on my phone that was addressed to Fats (i.e. me)
from Pretty Boy Hughes. In this message the writer suggested that I
should and could eat a lot because my opponent was feeble. I will
not let my guard down anonymous Pretty Boy.

national democrats and republicans don't quit telling lies about
each other I am going to start telling the truth about them.
