STORIES OF MY LIFE AND TOLD IN ONE DAY..

*4:25 PM 2/14/2017 EST. I'm at Subway again after a long day since 

the morning and have accomplished practically nothing in typing this, just one 

story of my life.

I have talked to maybe 20 people, sometimes just saying high, getting so far 

behind it's going like I'm going bass ackwards.  

I've been driving Bill around for a long while helping him to accomplish some 

things that he needed to do, just now dropping him off at the Walmart Vision 

Center to pick up his eyeglasses. 

As I entered the Vision Center and to my right was a young woman and her son

who liked NASCAR (National Association for Stock Car Auto Racing) because of 

the jacket she wore. Jimmy Stewart. She said he has won 7 championships and 

hopefully is headed for 8. She said maybe some other drivers have won 6. She 

said maybe Dale Earnhardt, Sr. who had died, sadly, when racing at NASCAR 

(National Association for Stock Car Auto Racing) Daytona 500 in Florida.

Well, that young woman was pretty close.

"Overall, thirty-one different drivers have won the Championship, with Richard 

Petty, Dale Earnhardt, and Jimmie Johnson holding the record for most titles at 

seven. Johnson has the record for most consecutive Drivers' Championships, 

winning five from 2006 to 2010."

Most wins by a NASCAR driver:

Driver                       Wins

Richard Petty 200

David Pearson 105

Jeff Gordon                 86

Jimmy Johnson           80

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

"The Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series Drivers' Championship is awarded 

by the chairman of NASCAR to the most successful Monster Energy NASCAR 

Cup Series racing car driver over a season, as determined by a points system 

based on race results. The Drivers' Championship was first awarded in 1949 to 

Red Byron. The first driver to win multiple Championships was Herb Thomas in 

1951 and 1953. The current Drivers' Champion is Jimmie Johnson who, along 

with Richard Petty and" (and the late) "Dale Earnhardt, have won a record 7 

Championships."

I told you this morning at about 12:00 PM 2/14/2017 EST that I was going to tell

you about "that hog-tied fat little @#^$%#*% and his tormentors and my attempt 

to outrun the government and the law. And in both adventures I didn't have my 

companion, Bonnie, by my side."

Well, I lied. I ain't got time. Maybe tomorrow. All I can say now is "Gentlemen,

start your engines."


*I met a man today maybe four inches taller than me at 6 foot 4. The place was in

the grocery store whose name I will not tell because of the rat fink who works in

there that I told you about before. He told me about his family's military history

and is a story I've never heard before. The young man had served 3 tours in

Afghanistan and maybe 1 in Iraq and he said something to me that I had not heard 

before in my long years of life. 9 Purple Hearts. He was not bragging but humble 

as he talked about his family tree who seemed to me that almost all had served 

our ... "Country, 'Tis of Thee." I asked him if he had kids and he said "yes, a son 

who was planning to join the Air Force, 8.5 weeks BMT (Basic Military Training) in 

San Antonio, Texas.

As we parted I thought that his family had done a great deal more than normal to 

keep this country free and tears rolled from my eyes to my cheeks as I continued

shopping. Human acts of kindness and acts to keep our country free are the reason

for my tears.

HEALTH

I'm always hungry. Maybe that's the reason for my boundless energy. "The 

expenditure of energy creates energy." I told you I was going to keep saying that.

I might say it everyday if I want to. As I said before I'm typing, you ain't.

As for food, I have food in my cell-like room, in Mother's Honda, in the garage 

refrigerator and I eat everything they fix for supper including all the leftovers. 

If you could look at my belly, you could tell, I look like an old man that's pregnant.


SPORTS

*There ain't no sports news today unless you want to count me running around like 

a "spring chicken."


ENTERTAINMENT

*There ain't no entertainment news either unless you want to count Adele 

dominating the Grammys and BeyoncĂ© causing the show to stop. Does that mean 

it didn't continue from that point?

Looks like Google is getting lazier than a loon. 2,660 results?


POLITICS

*Investigators are looking into what Michael T. Flynn, the national security adviser, 

told Russia’s ambassador to the U.S. about sanctions imposed by the Obama 

administration.

*6:53 PM 2/14/2017 EST. From my computer screen and the Washington Post.

Vice-President Pence did't know about Flynn until last week.

*President Trump and Prime Minister Shinzo Abe of Japan met in Washington on 

Friday, then played golf in Florida on Saturday.  

The Japanese leader, Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, played golf with Mr. Trump in 

Florida over the weekend. The president responded to a North Korean missile 

launch on Sunday with restraint, expressing support for Japan.

*Prime Minister Justin Trudeau of Canada will join President Trump in 

Washington today for a discussion on trade and jobs.

*On Wednesday, Mr. Trump will host Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu of 

Israel, a meeting expected to set a new tone for American-Israeli relations.

*The president said he might sign “a brand-new order” today to replace the 

targeted travel ban that a U.S. appeals court refused to reinstate. Here are the 

legal options in that case.

*And federal immigration officials arrested more than 600 people across at 

least 11 states last week. It was unclear if the operations were part of a 

ramping-up of deportations by the Trump administration.


I don't know who I copied and pasted  all this  information from but it usually 

Newsmax who don't seem to mind, Wikipedia who encourages you to do it as 

well as government web sites, but if it's the Associated Press and I'm caught,

I'm due for a hanging and we have 5 trees on the property for doing it. Do you 

know what I call the Associated Press? Guess. No, I'll tell you, you'd never guess.

*5:30 PM 2/14/2017 EST. Just got back from driving Bill to Wooster. I told you 

Bill's COPD was getting worse, but he certainly didn't show it today. He or I had 

about 6 stops to make in Orrville and Wooster and I could tell he was doing 

well because of his constant chatter. The weather people got it wrong today, way

wrong because it neared about 60°. "liar, liar, pants on fire."

When we got back the temperature lowered itself to 44° and the humidity was 58%

according to the all weather gauge on the deck. I hope them weather people are

"liar, liar, pants on fire" tomorrow because they say it's suppose to snow from above.
