#11 Sleeping With An 8th Grader (from Nov 30 /15)


Sometime after my wife and I split up and my kids were both grown I made a special trip to San Diego to visit with my son Curt (photo) who was still living with his mother because the time had come for us to have a father and son talk.
The message I was there to deliver was the fact that I was no longer going to be sending him any money so he needed to figure out how to take care of himself but I also told him that whenever he figured out what he wanted to do with his life but it took more education to do so, Dad would definitely pay for that. Curt claimed that he had being expecting our little chat and had already decided what he wanted to do. When I excitedly asked what his plan was, he said … I just wanna hang out Dad!


If our government is really concerned about climate change don’t you think it should go after Mexico, China, and India instead and stop beating us up all the time.

​Speaking of Mexico how come nobody is slamming the President of Mexico for the fact that his citizens are fleeing his country by the thousands.

​All that’s going on in radio today is figuring out how to be the last man standing when every body is fired.

​On air folks have to figure out how to get the people to just like them not love them. There’s no money in having them love you because it’s impossible to get enough people to love you to become successful.

You can almost play any song you want on the radio as long as your explanation of why is interesting.​

​If a teacher is caught sleeping with an 8th grade student what should the punishment be.

​A very dear friend of mine who is not doing well is mostly concerned about how his wife will do after he is gone rather than his well being. I wonder if wives have the same concern.

​How many games does a team have to lose before they finally decide to teach the kicker how to play football.​

​How do those college football players afford all those hair extensions.

​Change does not come about without some inconvenience.

​Is it still racist if you cut someone some slack because of their race.

Having a wife doesn’t change a man as much as having a daughter(S) does.

​You’ll never be happy until you can say what you mean and mean what you say.

I finally saw the movie “Sniper” which was well acted but I couldn’t remember if it was the Republicans or Democrats who told me that I was not supposed to like it.

There are six sides to every argument but unfortunately most Americans only see things through their Democrat or Republican eyes.

The rule of never spending more than 30% of your take home pay on your mortgage has never changed but a lot of people have been forced to ignore it.

The biggest risk of all is never taking any.
If you have rich friends there every place on our planet is wonderful.
I know a whole lot about very little.
The Beatles never dreamed big enough so they flamed out early.
Opportunity always needs some help before presenting itself.

How come the people who have absolutely nothing to say take so long to say it. OK I’ll try to edit

It’s a lot easier to communicate your point of view when you use a poem, a song, a movie, a play, a dance, a painting, a sculpture, or a photograph to do so with but sometimes a kiss does it best of all.
I understand that women always talk about sex until men show up.
Speaking of sex, a woman’s memory usually only goes back five love affairs.
A long time ago my Mother told me that I should never spend too much time alone because I have Hermit tendencies. Hey maybe I need to stop doing this Blog and get out there.

The west wins the Grey Cup again as The Edmonton Eskimos beat the Ottawa Redblacks in Winnipeg 26-20.

Years ago when Delilah had signed a new deal I asked her if she still had all the homes she owned. She told me that she had given them to her staff … Take that Mr. Businessman!

I spent Thanksgiving weekend up in Tampa with my daughter Cami who goes to USF. On black Friday I told her that I thought it would be fun for us to go Christmas shopping together which she agreed with and immediately took me straight to the grocery store.

Speaking of USF they closed out their season by spanking their rivals UCF 44 – 3. Looks like they’re bowl bound. Go Bulls.

  1. LOVE this post, (and all of them of course.) But this one in particular got me thinking…we should do some cool long-sleeve T-shirts, or sweatshirts with your face on them and various “George-isms” included. You could sell them on your blog and donate to your favorite charity, you could give them away to clients and friends. I’ll put examples on your FB page.
    NOTICE how I left off your last name. It makes the quote more interesting to strangers and after all…you are one of the few people in our business who can go by one name only…and your FIRST name at that! All the best for Christmas,George. With Love from The Motor City. (where real jocks still wear sport coats when they’re on the air.)

    • Great idea Jim and thank you for all the reads. I am thinking of publishing a bunch of them in a book and calling it “Lifelines” All I have to do is go back through them all and organize them by topic.
      There would be a chapter called Men & Women, Sex & Love, Family & Friends etc, Your thoughts please.

  2. Illegal immigration has been flat for several years, deportations are up and in 2014 more illegals left the US than entered and more are leaving so far in 2015.

    As the late (and great) Texan Mollie Ivins once wrote “solving illegal immigration is easy, just toss a few wealthy Dallas and Houston housewives in jail for 5 years for hiring an illegal maid or babysitter and the problem is solved.”

    A couple of years ago, a wealthy Texas housewife in the state legislature added a rider to a new tough Texas immigration bill it exempted “Domestic workers and gardeners” from the new immigration laws. It passed easily.

  3. If you had to give an interesting explanation for playing “almost any song” (Muscrat Love) just because it’s unusual (Convoy), wouldn’t you have to give the same explanation every time you played that song (Kung Fu Fighting) for those who didn’t hear a reasonable explanation for it the first time? Actually, there is no reasonable explanation for (The Macarena) songs like Winchester Cathedral. And there will always be a percentage of listeners who will like any piece of crap (Rubber Ducky) that’s played on the radio.
