Have a nice day!

Benji is going.

Posted by thesinger on August 18, 2008

well, the time with Benji at Metro on Sat. morning was a nice time. We chatted. We drank high-quality coffee. We partied randomly. We talked about many things. We decided that we like each others friendship. Benji is leaving in the morning (tues. morn) for lands east. I’ll miss him. We’re tight. “Benji” says thesinger, “peace be da journey. . .”

Joke of the Day:The Amateur Photographer

Posted by thesinger on May 20, 2008

An amateur photographer was invited to dinner with friends,
and he took along a few pictures to show to them. The
hostess looked at the photos and commented, “These are very
good! You must have a good camera.”

The photographer didn’t make any comment, but as he was
leaving to go home, he said, “That was a really delicious
meal! You must have some very good pots.”

Pictures of the Past

Posted by thesinger on May 2, 2008

Teresa Miller, a fine cousin of mine, recently found several pictures from “the good old days” when wheat harvest entailed nothing more than getting in the way of the real farmers, when lemonade stands were the bomb, and when I sang in my first quartet, the “Barefoot Quartet.”

To add some perspective, my uncle Loren, a resident of Colorado, owned two Case IH combines here in Kansas with which he would cut dad’s and grandpa’s wheat every summer. Usually he would bring along his family and the good times would roll.

As I alluded earlier, I had very few responsibilities except for the occasional garden/lawn work. 3/4’s of my day was often spent playing with Austin and/or Teresa and being the official combine riders. For some alternative activities, we began the Barefoot Quartet, which was comprised of Teresa, Austin, Loyal, and myself. We gave at least three free concerts together until we were given the opportunity to sing to the Youth Group. Loyal, unfortunately, found it necessary to drop out of the Quartet at that juncture of time, since he was distinctly more influenced by peer pressure than than the rest of us were.



Credit for these ancient pictures goes to Teresa, who recently found them, scanned them into her computer, and sent them to me. Here is the quite funny and touching email that accompanied the pictures:

Hi guys!

I promised to send John these pictures I came across the other day. (yes, I chuckled when I saw them) If I had a blog then…….but I don’t. (I hear the sighs of relief)

Wow…those were the days… (she says wistfully) when Teresa could tell Loyal and John whatever she wanted them to do and they DID IT! (a moment of silence in quiet reflection) Alas, I sense those days are over. (muffled sniffling in the background)

I wonder whose bright idea it was to have you hold those lovely little flowers and pose…it must have been you guys because you look pleased & proud, don’t you say? 🙂 Yes, definitely YOUR idea.
Here’s to:
– the Barefoot Quartet (in which Loyal was a member of until we sang for the youth group)
– the lemonade stand
– running around at harvest without responsibilities (or was that just me? ={ )
– decorating you and my brothers hair with bows
– getting ticked when Loyal said something MEAN about my dolls hair
– and many other adventures

Anyway – seeing that picture gave me a moment of satisfaction once again at the things I accomplished when I was young! (oops…did I say that?)

O for days past…..

Here is my favorite picture of each of them.




All of these were for the purpose of Senior Pictures. Since I am graduating with the class of 2008 as well, my grad pictures should show up here sometime in the near future. . .
