Southerners Deserve Better From Candidates

 Check This Out:

Southerners deserve better from candidates

Clark Gable refused to attempt to do a Southern accent in Gone with the Wind because he couldn't do one well enough; and he had enough respect for Southerners and Margaret Mitchell not to try. So he didn't try and he acted the part--and was succesful in his portrayal of a Southerner via skilled acting.

There is nothing more idiotic than the delivery of some dipsy Hollywood starlett with "You aallll come back," usually directed as a singular verb.

What is retirement? Where is retirement?

1: to withdraw from action or danger :
2: to withdraw especially for privacy
3: to move back :
4: to withdraw from one's position or occupation : conclude one's working or professional career
All of the above are from Webster's. All seem to be what one would not desire. Possibly someone might suggest # 1 with the confrontation of danger is not-to-be-desired;  but even danger is something that ultimately must be faced (if not it will chase you until it catches you)
The only time Robert E. Lee retired was to prepare a counterattack.

The worst of work nowadays is what happens to people when they cease to work.
G. K. Chesterton

More Retirement

The first thing people who retire do is plan what they are going to do! If they didn't they'd just stay in bed.

I have had some recent radio interviews on the subject of retirement. Someone suggested blogging a bit on the subject. Therefore I thought I’d begin with a quote or two or three on the subject:

Don't think of retiring from the world until the world will be sorry that you retire. I hate a fellow whom pride or cowardice or laziness drive into a corner, and who does nothing when he is there but sit and growl. Let him come out as I do, and bark.
Samuel Johnson

You know you're getting old when you stoop to tie your shoelaces and wonder what else you could do while you're down there.
George Burns

In six days God created everything. On the seventh day he rested. He did not retire.

Thanks to Jim Slinksy and KZNS for having me as a guest. Prince of a guy. And I'm betting probably a  pretty good bass fisherman, too!
