Happy Birthday Charles Krampe!

89 and still goin' strong. Charles Krampe ... The man who said "I do NOT believe we are all born equal. Created equal in the eyes of God, yes, but physical and emotional differences, parental guidelines, varying environments, being in the right place at the right time, all play a role in enhancing or limiting an individual's development. But I DO believe every man and woman, if given the opportunity and encouragement to recognize their potential, regardless of background, has the freedom to choose in our world. Will an individual be a taker or a giver in life? Will that person be satisfied merely to exist or seek a meaningful purpose? Will he or she dare to dream the impossible dream? I believe every person is created as the steward of his or her own destiny with great power for a specific purpose, to share with others, through service, a reverence for life in a spirit of love."
  Charles Krampe was my idol, growing up as a child, and I made sure I never missed his visits. In fact I still try to watch for him every day.
So Happy 89th Birthday, Pardner, I raise a glass of milk in salute.

4+20



"4+20"

Four and twenty years ago, I come into this life,
The son of a woman and a man who lived in strife.
He was tired of being poor and he wasn't into selling door to door
And he worked like the devil to be more.

A different kind of poverty now upsets me so.
Night after sleepless night, I walk the floor and I want to know- why am I so alone?
Where is my woman can I bring her home? Have I driven her away? Is she gone?

Morning comes to sunrise and I'm driven to my bed.
I see that it is empty and there's devils in my head.
I embrace the many colored beast. I grow weary of the torment, can there be no peace?
And I find myself just wishing that my life would simply cease.

Good Riddance ....



"Good Riddance (Time Of Your Life)"

Another turning point, a fork stuck in the road
Time grabs you by the wrist, directs you where to go
So make the best of this test, and don't ask why
It's not a question, but a lesson learned in time

It's something unpredictable, but in the end that's right,
I hope you had the time of your life.

So take the photographs, and still frames in your mind
Hang it on a shelf in good health and good time
Tattoos and memories and dead skin on trial
Through what it's worth it was worth all the while

It's something unpredictable, but in the end that's right,
I hope you had the time of your life.

It's something unpredictable, but in the end that's right,
I hope you had the time of your life.

It's something unpredictable, but in the end that's right,
I hope you had the time of your life.

My Favorite '404'

'Page Not Found' ... they're everywhere ... but you can't find them, but they're everywhere you look. This is my favorite 'Page Not Found' ..... that I found.



Sorry, the dog ate the page you're looking for. He's basically good, but sometimes that's how he rolls.

'Don't Be Sad I Know You Will,

But Don't Give Up Until' .....



True love will find you in the end
You'll find out just who was your friend
Don't be sad, I know you will,
But don't give up until
True love will find you in the end
This is a promise with a catch
Only if you're looking can it find you
‘Cause true love is searching too
But how can it recognize you
Unless you step out into the light? The light.
Don't be sad I know you will
But don’t give up until
True love will find you in the end.
