No need to ask the doctor

Every other ad on TV these days seems to be a drug you should ask your doctor if you should be taking.

Why would I ask my doctors?

They are the ones who have gone to school to figure out what is needed. The names they have come up for all of these pills are both modern and unique. Actually I think it is the same person who has come up with all of these names. And most have disclaimers for potential side effects including death.

A truck loaded with hundreds of thesauruses crashed yesterday losing its entire load. Witnesses were stunned, startled, aghast, taken aback, stupefied, confused, shocked, rattled, paralyzed, dazed, bewildered, mixed up, surprised, awed, dumbfounded, nonplussed, flabbergasted, astounded, amazed, confounded, astonished, overwhelmed, horrified, numbed, speechless, and perplexed at the sight of the whole thing.

Caning a chair from strands of cane is the most hair-brained idea I have had yet. I found a video on YouTube which shows a seven-step method of accomplishing what I am trying to do.

I have been on step four since Sunday and it is now Wednesday. I had to take the day off to keep from going crazy.

I did only two rows on step four on Sunday, then only two more on Monday and Tuesday was spent taking the two rows out I did on Monday. Somehow the cane got twisted and it looked very amateurish. Couldn’t have that.

I must have watched that video about a hundred times or parts of it. The lady doing the video makes it look so easy but she did say that step four is the most difficult to do. I affirm that.

Kansas Jayhawk football fans are eager to see what hiring a top coach in the land can do for the program now that they have played the first game. Les Miles can certainly do no worse than the other hires have done during the past ten years where the Hawks have won no more than three games in a season.

I will be truly interested in where they go from here.

I wonder how the NFL can generate so much interest in the preseason. The first units do not play all that much such as the Chiefs used Patrick Mahomes sparingly in the preseason. When the games don’t count—count me out.

The turn out for the fundraiser to benefit the Eric Bartel family was a phenomenal success because the people of this area take care of each other.

Our pastor at First Mennonite said he spoke with one of the wives of the men who smoked the meat, said that they do many of these types of events and she had not ever seen anything like this.

We appreciate all the hard work by so many this Labor Day.
