Lol, the directions one is so true, I just installed a new dish washer a week ago, I've been using it for nearly a week, finally found instructions last night in a drawer, I know how to do the quick wash now,lol.

I think we are lucky to have been "Raised" with these attitudes and suggestions - - don't Y'all :dont:

How many times have we heard "You kids go outside and play, I'm trying to get some work done !" WORK meaning washing, ironing, cooking and cleaning. :salut: :salut: :salut:

The lack of those simple life lessons is why our society is in the shape it is in right now. I won't climb on my soapbox too long:

We don't have a gun problem, we have a society problem.
When we all said the pledge of allegiance every day in school we didn't have people protesting the national anthem.
When we started the day with a prayer we didn't have people wanting to allow Sharia law in our country.
When we started giving kids "Time out" instead of paddling that butt they lost all concept of discipline.
When everyone started getting the same trophy for participating as the winners got there was no longer and drive to excel.
And then the big ones;
When illegal aliens are given more rights than American citizens then those in power no longer have the nations best interests at heart.
We send aid to countries that we owe money to, that don't vote with us, only use us for what they can get rather than paying their share in world affairs.
When millions of able bodied people are on welfare and food stamps just because they know we will take care of them and they live better than we do.
When we have even one single Veteran who is homeless and hungry and needing medical attention and we take care of illegal immigrants before them.

I truly believe the lack of those founding principles are the root cause of all out nations issues right now. I know it is too late for my generation, but we must get back to our core principles before it is too late for our grandchildren. Sorry about the rant, but you are all my brothers and sisters here, and if I can't vent to you, then who will ever listen.

As a "hyper" kid I hated nap time. They didn't know anything about ADHD back then, they just said I was easily bored. lol

I'm still hyper - - - don't really get much done but I sure don't sit still very much - - - however, my old back will put me in the recliner at a moments notice and I have learned to obey the warning :bow:
