    I have been asked to post my stories in Becky's Storytelling. That's what I am going to do-I always do what someone older than me tells me what to do. I enjoy creating these stories and for some reason got to get them out of my system before I'm dead. Whether you read them or not is up to you. If I make you laugh, cry and at best think I will be very satisfied. Someone once said, I think is was me. "I never knew him personally. I got to know him by his words and that was enough." If you get to know me by my words, great. If I think you can't find my words then I will keep writing them, but on a piece of paper instead of this keyboard. I'll stuff them in my desk and my wife can take them to goodwill with my underwear when I croak. At least I will have them out of my system. Thank you- John

    Okey Dokey ol' Pythonjohn. I got a lot of stories. A lot of words. Some of my words are prob. about to get me put in the twilight zone instead of anywhere on here. I would like to give it a shot on your ramblings thread. I can ramble as good as anybody for an old fart as Darcy says. I'll give you a parody when I get it put together, don't know how soon, make sure you have plenty of toilet paper in the house.

    Hey.. I like Jimmy Buffet!

    Now a Parody.. hmmm... if you put one to music and release it in Nashville, you just might get rich!

    Maybe you and KatInDaHat can team up!

    I enjoy the entertainment you provide with your words, John. At least until you get to the pet snake stuff. I'm really not sure who I would assimilate you with. I'm thinking a Louis L'Amour, Stephen King, Mark Twain kinda thing.

    I anxiouly await your words with baited breath. :wink:

    Mr Boots:
    I am under the witness protection plan now. Unless I go after a political candidate I doubt that they will poke at me too much. Besides, this bowl of pills I have next to the computer is supposed to keep me out of trouble. Anyhow I know how to get out of a strait jacket and can escape at any time.
    John.

    everybody likes jimmy. john i didnt know you could pull the ol houdini. that would be a kool trick. make sure that bowl of peanut m and m's doesnt get mixed up with the bowl of plain m and m's.

    boots is a corpsman so im sure he could get the yellow seperated from the green and red, just as long as you type slow enough for us.:tounge_out:

    If you mix the male m&m's and the female m&m's together in the same bowl will we get mini m&m's?
