σύμβολο

wiki says this about a creed

"A creed is a statement or confession of belief — usually religious belief — or faith. The word derives from the Latin: credo for I believe. It is sometimes called symbol (Greek: σύμβολο[ν]), signifying a "token" by which persons of like beliefs might recognize each other."

When I wear this symbol











I have this Creed "Do No Harm"











But when I am Just "Doug"
I wear this symbol




and Have this Creed "DO KNOW HARM"

Good Stuff

Rescue Ranger


Our outside cat has brought us two new wards,
two itty bitty cotton tail bunny babys.
Mrs Fyreman is bottle feeding them until
they are old enuff to be rehabilitated.
They will grow up to look like the fellow above


Pictures of the babies to follow

If it wasn't for baby Sis-

I'd have nothing to post

Need A Push
==============
A man and his wife are awakened at 3 o'clock in the morning
by a a loud pounding on the door.
The man gets up and goes to the door where a drunken
stranger, standing in the pouring rain, is asking for a push.
"Not a chance," says the husband, "It is three o'clock in
the morning."
He slams the door and returns to bed.
"Who was that?" asked his wife.
"Just some drunk guy asking for a push," he answers.
"Did you help him?" she asks.
"No. I did not. Its three o'clock in the morning and it is
pouring rain outside!"
His wife said, "Can't you remember about three months ago
when we broke down and those two guys helped us? I think you
should help him, and you should be ashamed of yourself!"
The man does as he is told (of course!), gets dressed and
goes out in to th e pouring rain.
He calls out into the dark, "Hello! Are you still there?"
"Yes," comes back the answer.
"Do you still need a push?" calls out the husband.
"Yes! Please!" comes the reply from the darkness.
"Where are you?" asks the husband.
"Over here on the swing!!" replies the drunk.

Idiot Sightings

From Lil Sis in Moantana


IDIOT SIGHTING: Hubby and I had to have the garage door repaired. The Sears repairman told us that one of our problems was that we did not have a "large" enough motor on the opener. I thought for a minute, and said that we had the largest one Sears made at that time, a 1/2 horsepower. He shook his head and said, "Lady, you need a 1/4 horsepower." I responded that ½ was larger than 1/4. He said, "NO, it's not. Four is larger than two."We haven't used Sears repair since.
* * * * * * * * * * * * * *

IDIOT SIGHTING: I live in a semi rural area. We recently had a new neighbor call the local township administrative office to request the removal of the Deer Crossing sign on our road. The reason: "Too many deer are being hit by cars out here! I don't think this is a good place for them to be crossing anymore." From Kingman, KS
* * * * * * * * * * * * * *

IDIOTS IN FOOD SERVICE: My daughter went to a local Taco Bell and ordered a taco. She asked the person behind the counter for "minimal lettuce." He said he was sorry, but they only had iceberg. He was a Chef? Yep...From Kansas City!
* * * * * * * * * * * * * *

IDIOT SIGHTING: I was at the airport, checking in at the gate when an airport employee asked, "Has anyone put anything in your baggage without your knowledge?" To which I replied, "If it was without my knowledge, how would I know?"He smiled knowingly and nodded, "That's why we ask." Happened in Birmingham, Ala.

Being a well dressed Firefighter




I WANT ONE OF THESE

and a Kilt made with this Tartan

From Linda Cliffords web site http://www.lindaclifford.com/Firefighters.html

"Over the years, many firefighters seeking kilts have asked me if there is a tartan for them. Some large departments have their own tartan, others with pipe bands use standard clan tartans, but there never has been one for Firefighters as a whole until now. If anyone deserves a tartan, it's these men & women who work so hard to serve the public." The tartan was designed by Linda Clifford & Heather Yellowley. It was woven in Scotland & has been registered with the Scottish Tartans Authority.For every purchase made with this tartan, Linda Clifford will make a donation to the

National Fallen Firefighters Foundation.

'8-yard Kilt 13 oz. weight - $585

So do I want the new AR-15 or the Plaid

So many things on my little mind

Cool stuff

Well I am now officially part of the big Ol' picture

I got stock in the family corporation and a Dividend check
