Ron's Cafe!

This little spot in the forum is where I usually post what things I have been sent by email, or what I have dredged up off of the internet.
It may be humourus, inspirational, or thought provoking, but it is always (hopefully) of an encouragement to others.

This isn't just my place but is open to all.
Feel free to come in, sit down, sip some Coffee (only Tim Horton's) and contribute if you can & feel inclined to do so.

Post numero one.

Weee Doggy!
==========


Weee Doggy!

That's an old saying from the TV show, "The Beverly Hillbillies."

Jed Clampett used to say that whenever he was excited or when
something overwhelming came up.

It was Jed's old-fashioned way from the city of Bug Tussle.
No, I don't exactly know where Bug Tussle is located, but I
doubt if they have a Wal-Mart.

I sit here at the office during one of these days.
After dealing with this and that.
After signing checks then checking the bank balance.
After dealing with personnel issues and technical issues.
After handling several emails.
After making adjustments on the website.
After checking with a supplier to make sure we would be able to
meet a promised delivery date.
After looking at the pile of mail on my desk.
I hit my toe this morning on an exercise machine, it hurts.
I've got to go meet with my wife in a few minutes, and I still
have loads to do.

Somehow it just came out.

Weee Doggy!

I don't know where it came from.
I just thought of old Jed and it came out, ...weee doggy!

It's not sophisticated I know.
It's not spiritual, I know.
Maybe an inspirational writer should have said something more
elegant, something more appropriate than a saying from
Bug Tussle.

Maybe


Weee doggy!

I am glad you asked! As Mayor of Bug Tussle I would like to extend an invitation for y'all to visit our fine community!
(Sorry, we don't have a WalMart.)

To answer your question of where Bug Tussle is, check out this link:

Mapquest: Bug Tussle

Now, I know y'all r wonderin' how there can possibly be TWO Bug Tussles in the world

================================================== ========
So... let me tell you a little story 'bout a man named Bug
A rich oil baron but not the brightest spark plug
when one day he heard someone shootin'at his head
it turned out to be his ol' neighbor named Jed

Clampett that is, white trash, redneck.

Well the next thing you know ol' Bug's a dead dad
Bug Junior said "Bug's will was ironclad"
But Jed thought ahead and blew up Bug's house
Now the will's gone and so is Bug's spouse

Mrs. Tussle that is, sweet lady, salt o' the earth.

With ma and pa gone, there was nothing we could do
Jed stole all our land and the mineral rights too
As mayor of this town I renamed it to honor Bug
And we chased Jed out for he was nothing but a thug

Criminal that is, murderer, deadbeat.
================================================== ========

You see, our town used to be called "Wee Doggy"
And that is why Jed still says that.
He is rubbing our noses in what he did to us!

After all that happened, we fired our sheriff, Barney Fife.
Yep! we sent him packin'!
We figured if he can't bring Jed to justice then what good is he!

A few years later, my brother (Skeeter Tussle) moved north to Oklahoma, started another town near McAlester and named it Bug Tussle as well.

I still live in Bug Tussle, Texas.
You may have noticed in the show that Jed never visited Bug Tussle
-- that's because I won't let him in.

Y'all come visit us now, y'hear!


regards,

Bug Tussle Jr.
Mayor

***Call Before Digging********************************

The boss ordered one of his men to dig a hole eight feet deep.

After the job was completed the boss returned and explained
an error had been made and the hole wouldn't be needed.

"Fill the hole back up," he ordered.

The worker did as he'd been told. But he ran into a problem.

He couldn't get all the dirt packed back into the hole
without leaving a mound on top.

He went to the office and explained his problem.

The boss snorted, "Honestly! The kind of help you get these days!

There's obviously only one thing to do.

You'll have to dig that hole deeper!"


Have you ever tried to un-ring a bell?

Once rung, it's rung. You can't call the sound back into the bell.

That is true with a bell.

That is true with words.

Once rung or said, it can be un-rung or un-said.

There are many things in life that once it's done,
it just can't be put back exactly like it was.

When we dig up and spread dirt, we can't just put the dirt back in
and make everything like it was before.

Even when we try to repair the damage, we leave marks.

Before we say an unkind word, humiliate someone, or spread gossip, remember,
it's like the boss that tried to fill in the hole and make it like it was.

You can't just dig it deeper.

There is a sign that you will often see on property where underground power,
water or gas lines run.

It says, "call this number before digging".

Maybe we should always check with the main office before digging.

You can never get dirt put back in place quite right once it's been let loose.

Thanks, and thanks for stooping by.
I too have good memories from a kinder, gentler, era.

"CELL PHONE vs. BIBLE"

I wonder what would happen if we treated our Bible like we treat our cell phone?

What if we carried it around in our purses or pockets?
What if we flipped through it several times a day?
What if we turned back to go get it if we forgot it?
What if we used it to receive messages from the text?
What if we treated it like we couldn't live without it?
What if we gave it to kids as gifts?
What if we used it when we traveled?
What if we used it in case of emergency?

This is something to make you go....hmm...where is my Bible? Makes you stop and think "where are my priorities?"

Oh, and one more thing. Unlike our cell phone, we don't have to worry about our Bible being disconnected because Jesus already paid the bill. And no dropped calls!
