Hospital Bed

0
If you’re like me, you have trouble some days getting into the groove. Try spicing up the conversation around the office.
At the office today, the topic around the water cooler was: If you were recuperating in a hospital, who would you want in the bed next to you, excluding relatives?
Naturally, Bob the single guy in the office opted for Beyoncé. Melody, the only single woman, mentioned Kenny Chesney.
Danny’s answer was intriguing as he mentioned Captain Smith from the ship Titanic. They could discuss the grandeur of the ship and find out what really happened.
Myrna’s answer was unique. She would like The Dutchman. Maybe in his sleep he would mention if there really was a mine and its location. Carla mentioned she would pick a Kardashian. Think of all the odd visitors they might have.”
Larry’s answer was unlike anyone else in the office. He wanted no one in the bed beside him. “When I don’t feel well, I don’t want anyone near me!” In contrast, Dianna wanted Marsha who is her best friend.
Gary and Judy’s answers were distinctive, making more than one person roll their eyes. Gary would love to talk to Richard Nixon all night, while Judy could jabber with her mother-in-law.
Norman wanted to talk sports with Bob Costas, while Murl would want to visit with Babe Ruth.
Gary’s choice was Al Capone or Jimmy Hoffa. Interesting yet I’d question if I would feel comfortable closing my eyes at night.
To the question, “Who would you want in the hospital bed beside you?” Richard was quick to answer. “I’d have Donald Trump. Think of all the beautiful Russian ladies that will be there when President Putin stops by.”
Now that’s an all together different subject.

A Time To Vote !

0

November, the  month  of  elections  and  turkeys.      A  likely  combination  if you ask me.

Another election is right around the corner and I must admit politicians can be some of my favorite people.  They are, and have been, some of the most colorful people ever placed on this earth.

Campaigners won’t let us forget that it is election time.  Political ads, and yard signs are everywhere.  Political signs sprout in the fall like dandelions in spring.

I enjoy seeing them.  It reminds me that people are actually supporting the electoral process.  True, voter turn out might not be as heavy as we would want it to be, but citizens should know who is running for elected office.

Here in Greenwood, signs particularly for local elections line the streets.  You can’t miss them.  There is no reason for anyone not to vote.  Citizens are aware of the election weeks in advance.

True, it may be trivial and unsightly when we see the candidate’s signs in someone’s yard or at stop lights.  Yet, these signs become a vital part of our lives and experiences.

Will you vote?  I hope so.  If you don’t vote . . . then don’t complain.  Take a stand, decide on what side of the fence you are, make yourself believe in something and vote!  

Driving to the newspaper office this morning I couldn’t help but see signs for a new coroner.  The brightly colored signs remind that a certain person has a wide variety of backgrounds and work experience.  But, that is one office I cannot get excited about.
