    Hope everyone had a Safe Great Memorial weekend. Put the Flag out and said the Pledge of Allegiance remembering those who sacrificed and paid the Ultimate Price. 🇺🇸

    this old song comes to mind
    🎵Ball of Confusion🎶

    Summer of ‘69 I turned 18. Needless to say by early ‘71 I received a “Greetings.” Not in school and not willing to relocate in Canada. I joined the National Guard. As an Engineer we were set to be deployed for Vietnam shortly after AIT. Thanks to my guarding Angel, We we spared at the eleventh hour. Lost Family members and a few good friends there.
    it was truly terrible for those coming back home to be ridiculed as Baby Killers! If you were in uniform at the Airport, John Q Public didn’t give a rats ass What it meant to raise your right hand to be sworn in. Certainly a bad time in our county’s history. I Thank GOD to see how much Respect for Men & Woman in Uniform has changed. My Honor and Respect will always be to all who and still server this Great Country of America ❣️

    Billy was having trouble in school.

    His teacher constantly yelled at him, "You're driving me crazy, Billy! Can't you learn anything?"

    Billy's mother met with his teacher at fall conferences. The teacher told her Billy was a disaster, getting the lowest marks of any of her students. She had never had such an unmotivated and ignorant boy in her teaching career. Billy's mom, shocked at the feedback, withdrew her son, moving from Detroit to Cleveland.

    25 years later, the teacher was diagnosed with severe cardiac disease and she needed a special heart surgeon.

    Her doctors advised open heart surgery that only one surgeon at the Cleveland Clinic could perform.

    The teacher decided to have a remarkably successful procedure. In the recovery room, she saw the young doctor who headed her surgical team, smiling down at her. She wanted to thank him. Instead, her face turned blue as she tried to speak and she quickly died.

    The doctor was shocked, wondering what went suddenly wrong. When the doctor turned to leave the room, he saw that Billy, the janitor at the Clinic, had unplugged the life-support equipment to plug in his vacuum cleaner.

    If you thought that Billy had become a heart-surgeon, there is a good chance you'll vote for Joe Biden!

    With all this home schooling. I wonder how long it will be that the parents realize that it was not the teachers fault that their idiot kid is causing the problem.

    can wait for that Parent Teacher conference
