Down by the River Where I Call Home

Updated on April 1, 2014

Please just for me, jump in a mud puddle today!

Perhaps life is short, I do not really know. But I do know that we have to enjoy it as often as possible.

A Self Fulfilling prophecy

When we awake after a time of slumber we are foggy to the world

Did you ever consider why that is?

Water feels cooler than air normally

Did you ever consider why that is?

No two snowflakes are exactly alike yet there are billions of them

And there are billions of people also

You are smarter than me about you

So why do we find in OK to give advice?

God is usually considered a “Him”

Funny that, my mom was my angel and God and the most beautiful woman in the world until I met Mimi

Good things happen to bad people and we take notice

Good things happen every day to good people and we do not take notice

Eric is my name and who I am but I still look in the mirror and do not recognize me

Love is not possible to own yet we all have it somewhere

You are a child of your parents, sorry about that, now get over it and love them.

All life is worthy just some less worthy and some more I do not like cockroaches

My friend John who some call Jodah lives in a place we call down under – what the hell?

My friend Eddy from Whales is the most beautiful woman in the world and I have no idea what she looks like.

I have a buddy named billybuc and I think he is 7 feet tall and built like Hercules but maybe he is old and fat like me.

I think you are a child of God, does that make me bad?

My young son and I picked some “weeds” yesterday and made a salad that was very good, Mallow and Dandelion. Perhaps we are crazy.

I had a bad headache two days ago while hiking. I took a stone and clipped off some bark off a Willow tree and chewed on the white stuff just inside the bark. My headache went away. That stuff is pure aspirin. Go figure!

My mom would kiss me on my forehead every night. I remember one time she did it and freaked out and took me to bed with her and made me drink chicken soup. Years later I did the same with mine own childs. You see by kissing a forehead you can literally take a temperature of a child. And then love and chicken soup cures any and all ailments.

My wife loves to yell and scream at me which really bothers me. But then I breathe deep and realize she is so so such a nice person that she would never do that to someone else. My shoulders are broad and my girth healthy and her yoke is light on my shoulders. I shall rejoice and be glad that she can share her burden onto my shoulders.

Have you ever seen hail so big that it can literally break a window? Well I have so I put on a thick coat and a helmet and ran out in it. -------- Hey buddy, life brings lemons,,,, make lemonade.

There is a man with a 160 IQ and he asks his God to lower it to 130 so he can be normal

      Perhaps it is only the feigning of smarts that makes us so, but your genius is real. I want to stop every and do a topsy turvy found here: https://hubpages.com/money/Grow-A-Topsy-Turvy-Vege...

      Hi Kathy, my momma was born in Naperville and so we call Chicago home, kind of. Wonderful what you mention. Dogs will eat grass just so they gag up something. I heard tell that a low belly rattlesnake will just bite and release it's venom and let the creature die, just so it can release it's venom.

      When God reveals his plan to me, I will let you know ---- otherwise I am just another slob.

      It's funny that you mention about the weeds and head aches. I was just reading about sheep and how they find plants that make them feel better. Great hub about life. By the way, I don't like cockroaches either! Smile!

      Well, buddy, the calendar says I am old, and the mirror says I am gaining weight, but you and I will always be young, slim and full of piss and vinegar. :) Thanks for the mention. I'd love to wet a fly in that river some day.
