A Woman’s Wants Excite Me. (new for Oct. 26/15)


I first became painfully aware that most Doctors didn’t graduate from the top of their class while living in a small town north of Winnipeg called Swan River.
I will never forget Swan River because it was where my four year old Sister Sandra sadly died from Measles.
11220943_10154172455684307_7053787976923286924_n1I can only think now that had we lived in a bigger town perhaps we would have had better Doctors and I would be enjoying her company today.
My next painful experience with Doctors occurred in Indianapolis when I came home early from work one day and thought I would grab a few Z’s before dinner.
As I lay down, the bedside phone rang and when I answered it the voice on the other end of the line was our family Doctor who informed me that he was calling about my Daughter Candis’ (pictured above Sandra) test results and of course further tests would be needed but he was fairly certain that she either had Mononucleosis or Leukemia.I wasn’t even aware that Candis who was around 1o or 11 at the time, had even been to the Doctor let alone was waiting for test results. I was in total shock and for the first time as an adult I cried.
We immediately took Candis to a specialist who turned to me as soon as we sat down and said … Mr. Johns I can tell you this right now, your Daughter does not have Leukemia which I know because unfortunately I have seen too many that do and it is very obvious to me when they first walk into the room. He then turned to Candis and asked her, young lady have you had the flu or a cold recently and when she confirmed that she had, he said to me and lana and said that when females get a cold or the flu it drives the white cell count up which may have confused your GP. All I know is that we never ever went to our GP again.
Even though there is nothing physical about the passage of time it does heal and this I know because I miss my parents and my sister as much as I ever have but I handle it better now.
Laughter is so contagious that you don’t even have to understand what everyone is laughing at before joining in.
When asked why I started writing at this late date the answer is simple, it took them this long to invent spellcheck.
A woman’s wants are what excites me, not her needs.
The greatest honor a man can ever give a woman is to ask her to marry him.
Sometimes a no to a marriage proposal can later be celebrated as an unanswered prayer.
No matter how softly praise is spoken one can always hear it.
Doesn’t everybody wish they could sing.
Unfortunately old age has a very short shelf life.
Sometimes we are prevented from learning something new because we are “know it all’s”.
Listening to advice requires a lot more wisdom than giving it does.
I’m much better than my enemies but still unequal to my friends.
Why is it so easy to be negative and so difficult to be positive, just urther proof I guess that the dark side is 10 times more powerful.
Being normal buys you a ticket to nowhere.
Very few people don’t owe their success to a lot of other people.
It’s much easier to make a living doing something you really love to do.
A man should spend his life striving to become what his 4 year old daughter already thinks he is.
To a lot of people opportunity just looks like more hard work.
Your limits are bound only by your imagination.
Being unhappy may be best described as the place in between what you have and what you have not.
I know very few beautiful women striving for equality.
You can’t go around failure, you’ve gotta blast through it in order to become successful.
The way you get those food carts down the aisle faster the airlines figured out was by charging for everything on them.
The world used to wait for America to invent new radio formats now they try to sell us theirs.
Shakespeare claimed the “plays the thing” not the client.
Radio sales folks have always tried to convince me that if they got a buy it was because of their ability to sell but if they lost one it was because of the ratings.

Acquiring too many toys takes away your freedom.

I’m watching ESPN as I write this on Sunday and it’s terrible. Finally Chris Berman leans into the camera and tells us that ESPN is going through reorganization so a lot of backstage people have been let go. Sad!

Rich guys are very sharing when it comes to the downside but the upside, not so good.

Damn, the Blue Jays and Cubs are both out, who the hell do I cheer for now.

Surrounding yourself with people smarter than you makes you the smartest person in the room.

Wow Justin Trudeau is the new Prime Minister of Canada. Hell I can still remember whenever his old man spoke the whole world listened.

  1. Doctors are not god, but they play at it. I had a doctor tell me to get my life in order because I would be dead in 6-months. That was 23-years ago!
