~  Nothing in the world can take the place of persistence.  Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with talent.  Genius will not; un-rewarded genius is almost a proverb.  Education will not; the world is full of educated derelicts.  Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent.  The slogan "Press On" has solved, and always will solve the problems of the human race.
   ~ Calvin Coolidge

  • 3 Jan 2001 - "The real millenium" -- When is the "real" apocalypse anyway, cause I want to be prepared for this shit?
    In South Dakota now, just wondering what the hell is gonna become of my life. I know I miss a lot of folks in Southern Indiana.  Who knows, maybe I'll be back someday to get the job to beat all jobs at the new ass back factory. I know I want my peoples to keep in touch, let me know what's going on in their lives and Hazletucky.  A fella has to keep in touch with his folks and have a taste of home--ya know.  Till later~ Cheers!

    Hitman,  thanks for trying to take care of me.  You were a great leader by example for sure.  Keep in touch, maybe you & I will meet again one day--maybe smoke some dog rockets and have a drink.  Best wishes to you and Keryl.  Your a good man and a good friend. ~your troop.


The Man in the Glass

When you get what you want in your struggle for self and the world makes you king for a day, just go to a mirror and look at yourself, and see what that man has to say.

For it isn't your father or mother or wife whose judgment upon you must pass; the fellow whose verdict counts most in your life is the one staring back from the glass.

You may be like Jack Horner and chisel a plum and think you're a wonderful guy, but the man in the glass says you're only a bum if you can't look him straight in the eyes.

He's the fellow to please, never mind all the rest, for he's with you clear up to the end--and you've passed your most dangerous, difficult test if the man in the glass is your friend.

You fool the whole world down the pathway of years and get pats on the back as you pass, but your final reward will be heartaches and tears if you've cheated the man in the glass.


Thanks Uncle Jim!
