I Had it All !!



I   Had  it  All  !!
                                              
I talked to a  homeless man this morning and asked him how he ended
up this way.
He said, "Up until last week, I still had it all. I had plenty to eat, my
clothes were washed and pressed, I had a roof over my head, I had
TV and Internet, and I went to the gym and the library.
I was working on my MBA on-line.  I had no bills and no debt. I even
had full medical and dental coverage."

I felt sorry for him, so I asked, "What happened?  Drugs? Alcohol? Divorce?"

"Oh no, nothing like that," he said.  "No, no. I just got out of prison..."

Thanks David

And people complain about long prison sentences. PHFF!

And a free sex change operation if he wanted one. Yep - life was good.

That's an outstanding booking photo.

Prison needs to include hard labor - and that means Hillary too.

Well, some people have alternate priorities.

Some folks live just like this. I so remember them committing crimes so they could spend the winter locked up. It's a mindset that amazes me.

Have a fabulous day Odie. ☺
