Little Johnny meets Nancy Pelosi
Nancy Pelosi was visiting a primary school in Tampa and visited a grade four class. They were in the middle of a discussion related to words and their meanings.
The teacher asked Mrs. Pelosi if she would like to lead the discussion on the word ‘tragedy.’ So our illustrious Democrat asked the class for an example of a ‘tragedy’.
One little boy stood up and offered: “If my best friend, who lives on a farm, is playing in the field and a tractor runs him over and kills him, that would be a tragedy.”
“No,” said Pelosi , “that would be an accident.”
A little girl raised her hand: “If a school bus carrying 50 children drove off a cliff, killing everyone, that would be a tragedy.”
“I’m afraid not,” explained Pelosi .
“That’s what we would call great loss.”
The room went silent. No other child volunteered. Pelosi searched the room.
“Isn’t there someone here who can give me an example of a tragedy?”
Finally at the back of the room, Little Johnny raised his hand. The teacher held her breath.
In a quiet voice he said: “If the plane carrying you was struck by a ‘friendly fire’ missile and blown to smithereens that would be a tragedy.”
“Fantastic!” exclaimed Pelosi , “That’s right. And can you tell me why that would be a tragedy?”
“Well,” says Johnny, “It has to be a tragedy, because it sure as hell wouldn’t be a great loss … and you can bet your sweet ass it wouldn’t be an accident either!”
The teacher left the room

Mom died in November.

Mom died in November. Due to covid, I didn’t make the funeral. I didn’t have covid, but members of our family were exposed, so rather than risk killing off a large amount of old people, Nina and I stayed at home.

This month we made the trip to Holland Michigan to celebrate a brother’s wedding. It was also the first time I was in Mom’s house since she passed.  I bought a trailer to take some of her furniture home with me.

The trailer will be converted to a Harley Hauler once empty of furniture. While I will ride to most locales during the year, future rides will be with the Harley in the trailer. It will give us easier access to the east coast for touring out that way.

It’s a 6 X 12 foot trailer and I should be able to tow 2 bikes in it.

I am a husband, father, grandfather, friend, business owner, traveller, Harley rider, citizen, patriot, gun owner, politically eclectic person of strange personal habits. I support police, trust no politicians, and can argue any side of an argument just to amuse myself. People love me or hate me and those that are in-between don't know me.
