WELCOME to Monday September 23, 2013. How Amazing Life is…
Last Sunday night (September 15, 2013), my first grand baby was born at Mercy Hospital in Saint Louis, Missouri otherwise know as the Lou! Her name is Eliya Danielle. Now Eliya is a Hebrew name that simply means “God is my Lord”. Now how amazing is that? It’s taken me a week to take this circle of life thing in and the whole concept of third generation Strayhorn’s into my head! And I know it’s great and many other people are already grandparents, but I’m not, nor have I been until now! I have decided to take the name of “Grand Pappy,’ versus grandfather which sounds so incredibly old! I keep hearing the theme song from the Loin King playing over and over in my head and I almost want to call my son and his wife every day in my best James Earl Jones voice and “Well done my son, you have made me proud” It’s like Christmas in September and I just love this child! I’ve taken a million pictures and will probably blow them up to poster size to hang on my wall in my office!
Now there’s that age thing which goes along with the grandfather title, you know, you’ve reached the age where what the mind can conceive, the body can no longer achieve? Well I have not reached the walker or Hoveround stage and I figure that I’ve got plenty of life to live, after all, I’ve got at least 5 or 6 more grand kids hanging around just waiting for the right time in the next 20 years to join us. That’s my story and I’m sticking to it! Have a great Monday people, and whatever you do, don’t forget to LAUGH IT UP! Peace I am outta here, Eucman!

Otto von Bismark, the first Chancellor of the German Empire from 1871-90 had been conversing for a rather long time with the British Ambassador to Germany when the latter posed the question, “How do you handle insistent visitors who take up so much of your valuable time?”
Bismark answered, “Oh, I have an infallible method. My servant appears and informs me that my wife has something urgent to tell me.”
At that moment there was a knock at the door, and a servant entered with a message from his wife.

Answer: Silverado! This 80’s gem resurrected the classic Western in Hollywood. Four men team up to save the town of Silverado from the corrupt Sheriff and his deputies.
The corrupt Sherriff Cobb (Brian Dennehy) explains to Mal (Danny Glover) that he’s going to be killed as Mal is being beaten in town by the deputies. Cobb tries to coerce Mal by saying he’ll let him go…all he has to do is give up Emmitt’s (Scott Glenn) hide out. “Silverado” has a great ensemble cast, and also stars Kevin Kline, Kevin Costner, Linda Hunt, John Cleese, and Rosanna Arquette.

Monday’s Quizzler is……….
You will know that I am coming
From the jingle of my bell,
But exactly who I am is not an easy thing to tell.
Children, they adore me
for they find me jolly,
but I do not see them when the halls are decked with holly.
My job often leaves me frozen,
I am a man that all should know,
But I do not do business in times of sleet or ice or snow.
I travel much on business,
But no reindeer haul me around,
I do all my traveling firmly on the ground.
I love the time of Christmas,
But that’s not my vocational season,
And I assure that is because of a sound economic reason.
