Still My Hero


My Twilight Years ~ Clint Eastwood
As I enjoy my twilight years, I am often struck by the inevitability that the party must end. There will be a clear, cold morning when there isn't any "more."  No more hugs, no more special moments to celebrate together, no more phone calls just to chat.  It seems to me that one of the important things to do before that morning comes, is to let everyone of your family and friends know that you care for them by finding simple ways to let them know your heartfelt beliefs and the guiding principles of your life so they can always say, "He was my friend, and I know where he stood."
So, just in case I'm gone tomorrow, please know this:  I voted against that incompetent, lying, flip-flopping, insincere, double-talking, radical socialist, terrorist excusing, bleeding heart, narcissistic, scientific and economic moron currently in the White House!
Participating in a gun buy-back program because you think that criminals have too many guns is like having yourself castrated because you think your neighbors have too many kids.
Regards,
 Clint

DAMN! Another one got by me. Usually, the someone that sends 
me this stuff has to be "Snope" tested. I was in a hurry and let
this one go. I'm leaving it up because I really wish Clint Eastwood
had said it.

Too bad it's not true. I wish it were. Damn fine writing for sure!

G, damn, you know I meant to look that up too. Some that keeps sending me this stuff has to be truth tested constantly and this one slipped by. I'm well aware of "Snopes". Thanks.

Don't worry about it Odie. Snopes, as we have recently seen, is not always the fountain of truth.

It doesn't matter whether Clint said it. Someone wrote it and the sentiment is a powerful one.

So, just in case I'm gone tomorrow, please know this: I didn't vote for the errand boy sent by grocery clerks either and I will continue to stand guard over liberty.



Woodsterman (Odie) said...

Curmudgeon, It really doesn't bother me that much. Like you I appreciate what it says.

"Errand boy sent by grocery clerks"? Wow, love that one!

Sandee said...

Well whomever said it I agree 100%. We have a horrible mess in Washington D.C. and Obama and his minions are the cause.

Have a fabulous day Odie. ☺

As John Ford once said, "If it wasn't that way, it should've been".

Woodsterman (Odie) said...

Sandee, 10-4!

Woodsterman (Odie) said...

Scotty, great ideas?

Woodsterman (Odie) said...

Edutcher, that's exactly why I left it up.

Dirty Harry is my kind of guy! Remember him as Rowdy Yates on Rawhide many year ago.

Madhat said...

If Clint would just go to the white house and do that Dirty Harry cold stare, I bet the liar and chief would head out.

I don't care who you are, that stare was scary.

Woodsterman (Odie) said...

Ron, I remember ... I'm old too.

Woodsterman (Odie) said...

Madhat, Oh if only ...

I got trapped with the same email ... I guess, like Mulder, I just wanted to believe.

Cube, We are believers!
