We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.
Was listening to 'On the Beach' the other day and heard the famous lyric from Ambulance Blues
And there ain't nothin'
like a friend
Who can tell you
you're just pissin'
in the wind.
How true that is!
When a man carries a gun all the time, the respect he thinks he's getting might really be fear. So I don't carry a gun because I don't want the people of Mayberry to fear a gun. I'd rather they respect me.

"Fly like a butterfly...sting like a bee!"
My real Dad used to play this when we were kids. He'd wave his hand in the air like a butterfly; then he'd dive bomb his pointer finger into our sides and tickle us til we were laughing our heads off or almost peeing ourselves! It was so much fun laughing; I am giddy thinking of it. We sher'd some good times for my birthday. Just shering the bliss! You cannot escape the bee... hahahahaha- to bee-ing tickled!
"Masonry teaches man to practice charity and benevolence, to protect chastity, to respect the ties of blood and friendship, to adopt the principles and revere to ordinances of religion, to assist the feeble, guide the blind, raise up the downtrodden, shelter the orphan, guard the Altar, support the government, inculcate morality, promote learning, love man, fear God, implore His mercy and hope for happiness."
-From the Grand Lodge F. & A.M. NY
For: one of my Dad's that lived just like this, he was one of the best!

your sword, light a candle."
