WISDOM COMES FROM THE DARK SIDE !

Burton Cummings (The Guess Who) mentioned he was still having trouble coping with his Mother’s passing last May. His words brought back the memory of my Father (pictured) who died during the busiest time of my career. I spent most of time on planes in those days criss crossing North America. One day while flying lord knows where I was gazing out of the plane’s window sorta daydreaming and looking down at the beautiful white billowy clouds below us and for some reason with a tear in my eye I started thinking about how much I missed my Dad. Suddenly from out of nowhere I was startled by the sound of his voice saying … Don’t be sad about me Son I’m very happy and am doing just fine but I’m not so sure about you. I wish you were taking better care of yourself and you also need to start working on your own happiness instead of just working. I love you and am very proud of you and with that his voice was gone. I have been at peace about him ever since. I must admit though that it’s still tough being an orphan at any age.

It’s bad enough if you constantly lie but when you start believing your own lies it soon becomes a disaster.

Nothing travels faster than the bad news of your bad rating book.

Tim Moore says the light at the end of the tunnel has been turned off due to budget cuts.

If you ever wonder whether you’re crazy or not, you’re not. Crazy people don’t wonder about such nonsense.

Sexy and Sensuous are two entirely different things but the combination is devastating and almost impossible to resist.

There is a question that I have been wasting too much time thinking about for too many years. “If A Tree Falls In The Forrest And There Is No One There To Hear It fall, does It Make Any Noise” Both yes and no could be argued but the answer I have come up with which I hope Cami will have the opportunity someday to try on one of her teachers is … A tree falling in the forrest makes the same sound whether you are there to hear it or not.

I have an extremely tough time following my own advice.

We all know what others should do to fix their lives it’s what do we do to fix our own that’s so confusing.

It feels like only a few weeks ago we were celebrating Cami’s “Sweet Sixteen” birthday party but now her 17th is almost here. How the hell do I slow this out of control speeding train down. Whew!

I just read somewhere that it takes about 25 years of hard work to become an overnight success.

The Hunny Bunny revealed to me that the secret of Victoria’s Secret is they welcome men into the dressing rooms. They figure at the very least it doubles the sales.

Speaking of the Hunny Bunny, while waiting for the Nissan dealer in South Miami to fix the brakes on her Z 350 we decided to walk the block and half to a Cuban Restaurant for some lunch. On the way there I heard several cars honking and seeing as traffic wasn’t bad I finally said … What the hell are those people honking at? She replied … My Ass!

I wonder what kind of a place America would be if the people who didn’t pay income tax didn’t get to vote.

Is it just me or are the guys who play the 4 Seasons in “Jersey Boys” better than the originals.

True love comes from the heart not from the mouth … Action is always better than words.

You really shouldn’t believe everything you think.

I spend a lot of my time looking for reasons to believe but still finding lots of reasons telling me to leave.

If you really want to do something you’ll figure out how to do it and if you don’t you’ll figure out an excuse not to.

Because we learn more from our mistakes than anything it would seem to me that wisdom like talent must come from the dark side too.

Sometimes your fear of losing someone actually causes you to lose them.

Have you ever noticed you never see a McDonald’s under construction, they just sorta show up.

If you are lusting after something you’ve never had before then you are most likely going to have to do something to get it you’ve never done before.

When somebody leaves you it doesn’t make them a bad person it just means their part in your story is over.

  1. Your Dad’s words were wisdom George. Wisdom from The Light. John 3:21. Your Dad, in life, seems to have been from the truth – based on what you heard and shared with us. That is what put your Dad in the position he is in. Thank you George.

  2. I shouldn’t say this for fear of putting a pricing idea in your head, George, but your blog is a fine example of why “the best things in life are free.”

  3. Hmmmm well take DePeche Mode the band. It took them 15 years of trial and error to invent their special sound which made them an overnight success. So 25 years may be a bit long.
