Roy, we have now known each other for well over 10 years. I still am amazed (and amused) by how we met and how we got together. People tell us it was “coincidence”, but, as we both know, there is no such thing as “coincidence”. The Hand of God was definitely in it, with a Higher Power in control.

There are times we both are “unlovable” … but we continue to love each other in spite of our shortcomings.

There are times that we know that God and our “guardian angels” have a major sense of humor for the things we’ve encountered. Driving each other as well as anyone around us crazy … well, isn’t that part of the fun in life?

There are things we’ve been through that would have shaken most people to the core. We continue on in spite of it all.

Nevertheless, after all you have done for me … as well as for all three of my children, whether they are here physically or in spirit … and for the wedding of Kara and Alex (our newest son) … and for working with me to build businesses of our own … and for loving me even when I wasn’t sure I loved myself …

I JUST CALL YOU ‘MINE’

Martina McBride

 

I pinch myself

Sometimes to make sure I’m not in a dream.

That’s how it seems.

I close my eyes

And breathe in the sweetest moments I’ve ever known.

It feels like home,

And here I am.

I want to be your everything!

There you are,

Turning winter into spring,

And everyone that sees you

Always wants to know you,

And everyone that knows you

Always has a smile.

You’re a standing ovation

After years of waiting

For a chance to finally shine.

Everyone calls you “Amazing”.

Yeah,

I just call you “Mine”.

I fall apart

And just a word from you somehow seems to fix

Whatever’s wrong.

Oh,

You reach into

The weakest moments and remind me that I’m strong.

You gotta know

I’d be a fool

Not to see or, even worse, to forget

That you’re more than I deserve,

‘Cuz everyone that sees you

Always wants to know you,

And everyone that knows you

Always has a smile.

You’re a standing ovation

After years of waiting

For a chance to finally shine.

Everyone calls you “Amazing”.

I just call you “Mine”.

Nothing makes sense when you’re not here,

As if my whole world disappears.

Without you what’s the point of it,

‘Cuz everyone that sees you

Always wants to know you,

And everyone that knows you

Always has a smile.

You’re the dream that I’ve been chasing

After years of waiting

For a chance to finally shine.

Everyone calls you “Amazing”.

I just call you

MINE!

As The Beatles sang: “… can’t buy me love, money can’t buy me love”.

You’ve given it to me freely. I give mine in return.

 

 

 

Carry on, all!

“Let me tell you how it will be.  There’s 1 for you, 19 for me, ‘cuz I’m the Tax Man.  Yeah, I’m the Tax Man.  Should 5% appear too small, be thankful I don’t take it all, ‘cuz I’m the Tax Man.  Yeah, I’m the Tax Man.  If you drive a car, I’ll tax the street.  If you try to sit, I’ll tax your seat.  If you get too cold, I’ll tax the heat.  If you take a walk, I’ll tax your feet.  Tax Man!  I’m the Tax Man.  Yeah, I’m the Tax Man.  Don’t ask me what I want it for if you don’t want to pay some more, ‘cuz I’m the Tax Man.  Yeah, I’m the Tax Man.  Now my advice for those who die (TAX MAN), declare the pennies on your eyes (TAX MAN), ‘cuz I’m the Tax Man.  Yeah, I’m the Tax Man, and you’re working for no one but me.  Tax Man!”  George Harrison

We dedicate this old classic Beatles song to BO, his family, his leeches, his fools, his cronies, and his thugs.

I wish I could say that we have “taxation with representation” but we no longer do, because the vast majority of the elected politicos have absolutely no concept of who they are supposed to represent … or what they represent … other than themselves and their gaping pocketbooks … so they tax anything that moves … or doesn’t move … and think that the citizenry is ok with that.  The citizenry is not.  The problem is … the vast majority of the citizenry has no ability to stop it or knowledge of how to stop it, and they have no energy left after paying for BO and his family of fools to go on vacation several times a month … while they wonder if they will *ever* have the chance to take a vacation … and they work till they drop as part of BO’s new “slave class” that is supposed to work and hand over all their very hard earned money.

“Should 5% appear too small, be thankful I don’t take it all, ‘cuz I’m the Tax Man.”

Roy and I are going on vacation the end of April … the first one we’ve been able to take in over FIVE YEARS.  However, we have fools in DC that think taking a vacation every month is ok … and that doing it lavishly at the expense of the taxpayer is acceptable.  Do they think that we all are able to do that?  Very few can take any vacations at all other than staying home and hoping to make ends meet, let alone even dream of one vacation a year … as opposed to one vacation a month.

“Don’t ask me what I want it for if you don’t want to pay some more, ‘cuz I’m the Tax Man.”

Roy and I have been hit with MASSIVE tax bills in the past few years due to several financial issues/setbacks that we encountered … that would pay for small vacations for us but are a drop in the bucket for the ungrateful and out-of-touch idiots that are currently occupying the White House.  We’d love to spend the money that we earn on us being able to take even a short vacation to Tahoe or Disneyland, let alone lavish vacations, rather than giving it to the political leeches taking opulent vacations and hosting wild birthday parties for Moochelle but not allowing the public in on tours of the White House.

We are curious.

What are they hiding in the White House?  What is it they are doing in there that they suddenly have closed “The People’s House” to the public?  It isn’t “Sequestration”, because they’re able to cover their wild lifestyle with tax money so they could cover tours of the White House with it also.

Curiouser and curiouser.

So … we get a bit worked up when they dip in our pocket so they can go on dream trips while we work ourselves to the bone so that we can owe more money than we did before.

“Yeah, I’m the Tax Man, and you’re working for no one but me.”

Guess again, Limousine Leftist Liberals that are living on the taxpayer dole.  You work for the taxpayer … not the other way around … and we, the taxpayers, find your lavish lifestyle selfish, arrogant, and downright abhorrent.
