My Beautiful Birthday Present. (new geo Blog for the week of May 14/18)

 

Many years ago when we all worked for Jim Hilliard in West Palm Beach, my friends Bob Christy, Eric Chaney,(RIP) and me were celebrating my birthday by doing a bar crawl on Clematis Street. As the evening wound down and I was about ready to call it a night, Bob who wasn’t near done yet said, “Let’s go over to Palm Beach (the place where the people who really run America live) and have a final, final at the Leopard Lounge.” I scrunched up my nose and said, “Nah, only old rich people go there,” and with a wave of my hand, I headed home. Little did I know that God had a special birthday present waiting for me there in the form of the beautiful Jan Hall. (pictured above with me )
Jan was a senior flight attendant for US AIR at the time but now has her own very successful business in LA called Moonstone Marketing. She and her staff specialize in everything a company would need to have a well-visited Web site. Their expertise has resulted in her company catching fire, especially in the Oxnard Ventura area.

Anyway back to my precious birthday present. When Bob and Eric ventured into the Leopard Bar that night, they were the only people except for Jan and her flight crew who were under 90. Eventually, they gravitated towards each other and while having a few cocktails, Bob and Eric began chatting them up. However, I think Bob totally misread the situation because I’m pretty sure that God only wanted him to amuse Jan until I eventually showed up as was originally intended. Now, not only won’t he give her back to me, the prick married her. Damn!

OK ENOUGH OF MY WHINING LETS GET ON WITH IT.

Being a “Dually,” I get to hate twice as many politicians as most.
 
I think things would be much better if the Dow weren’t so wussy about rumors.
 
If someone is grandfathered in politically by race or religion why would we want to hear what their old school political point of view is?
 
Doing what you love doing will not only make you successful, it will make you happy.
 
If you don’t get an excellent education you better hurry up and invent something.
 
I wonder why alcoholics feel the need to finish the whole bottle whereas a drug addict only needs a hit and a smoker just a cigarette?
 
If anybody needs advice, it’s me, but I don’t wanna hear it!
 
Sometimes more often than not, what you think may be better left unsaid.
 
Whatever happened to the Tea Party?
 
When you go to a car dealer, their goal is to sell you a car that’s already there and then get you to pay as much for it as they can. There ain’t nothing else going on.
 
It doesn’t matter how often you fall, the last person to get back up wins it all.
 
We didn’t pay Stormy, but we sure did pay for a bunch of harassment suits brought against several congressmen. Names, please?
 
I think if the teachers were willing to blow up the “old school” school system, there’d be a lot more money for them.
 
Guys start bands to get free women and beer which may be the same reason why the guys who can’t play, start their own businesses?
 
The worst sin of all is fooling around with a woman that’s not as good looking as your wife; the public will never forgive you. However, based on that, I think Slick Willy gets a pass.
 
Is it just me or is Dan Patrick starting to look like Jerry Lewis?
 
The problem isn’t not having the knowledge of what to do about stuff; it’s coming up with the inspiration to get on with the doing of them.
 
All that happened when American Airlines reorganized its reward program was that it now takes much longer to accumulate points for free air travel. Surprise!
 
An interesting experiment may be to answer no when the person at the check out counter asks you if you found everything?
 
I don’t know what Trump’s theory is but my experience with rich people is, the more money you give them, the more they hoard.
 
Your best years may be behind you, but they will always define who you are.
 
We all evolve but unfortunately, we do it at a different rate which can make it tough on any marriage.
 
Doesn’t it look weird to see bull riders at the rodeo wearing crash helmets instead of Cowboy hats?
 
If you’re thinking of running for office remember one thing, you can lie cheat or steal but you can’t have sex.
 
The main difference between Frank, Elvis, and The Beatles was that Frank never changed the world.
 
When you’re the president of anything, you’re probably working even when you’re not at work.
 
We all have to learn how to deal with the way things are not how we wish them to be.
 
The government collecting more from the rich ain’t gonna change nothing, it’s their spending that’s killing us.
 
Of course, it’s a sexist society, and I for one am tired of it. I once sued a woman and won but still had to pay all the lawyers and court costs.
 
Isn’t being politically correct just another form of lying?
 
It’s pretty obvious that Trump is nothing like Obama, but for some reason, a lot of folks are shocked and horrified that he doesn’t act like him?
 
We can all change our mind unless of course, we don’t have one.
 
The better you become so becomes the world.
 
While watching the Voice this season, it was hard to predict if America was going to move a black or white singer forward. However, I did know who Alicia Keys was gonna go with.

  1. George, I like using the line, “Why, are you hiding things?” at the checkout line when they ask if I found everything!
