Rose and Barb

29 Feb

Two 95-year-old women, Rose and Barb had been friends all of their lives.
When it was clear that Rose was dying, Barb visited her every day.

One day Barb said, ‘Rose, we both loved playing women’s softball all our lives, and we played all through High School. Please do me one favor: when you get to Heaven, somehow you must let me know if there’s women’s softball there..’
Rose looked up at Barb from her deathbed and said, ‘Barb, you’ve been my best friend for many years. If it’s at all possible, I’ll do this favor for you.’
Shortly after that, Rose passed on.
A few nights later, Barb was awakened from a sound sleep by a blinding flash of white light and a voice calling out to her, ‘Barb, Barb.’
‘Who is it?’, asked Barb, sitting up suddenly. ‘Who is it?’
‘Barb — it’s me, Rose.’
‘You’re not Rose. Rose just died.’
‘I’m telling you, it’s me, Rose,’ insisted the voice.
‘Rose! Where are you?’
‘In Heaven,’ replied Rose. ‘I have some really good news and a little bad news.’
‘Tell me the good news first,’ said Barb.
‘The good news,’ Rose said, ‘is that there’s softball in Heaven. Better yet all of our old buddies who died before us are here, too..
Better than that, we’re all young again.
Better still, it’s always springtime, and it never rains or snows.
And best of all, we can play softball all we want, and we never get tired.’
‘That’s fantastic,’ said Barb. ‘It’s beyond my wildest dreams! So what’s the bad news?’
‘You’re pitching Tuesday.’

Have a happy Hump Day!

    Let’s leave the pitcher and catcher and the ladies softball jokes alone, mmmmkay?

    Don’t be afraid to go to urbandictionary for a lookup of either term. You won’t be mentally scarred for life.

    I promise.

    Good morning! I was just about to do a post, but I’ll just schedule it for tomorrow.

    LOL!

    I loved this post from my friend Bob, just for the title alone – the link to the Ode to Obama was icing on the cake:

    So, are we gonna accept Romney now? Seems like that’s the way we are going.

  7. LC Aggie Sith February 29, 2012 at 10:09 am #

    The choice was never ours, J’Ames.

  8. TerribleTroy February 29, 2012 at 10:53 am #

    I vote we kill them all and start over.

    PS. I’m serious.

    PPS. *waves hi to the feebs* molon labe motherfuckers!

    I’m just ready to be down to one, and watch King Putt’s numbers against him go down. I just want to see Beckel’s head explode.

  16. Jay in Ames February 29, 2012 at 12:00 pm #

    Romney 2012: He doesn’t suck that much!

  17. LC Aggie Sith February 29, 2012 at 12:00 pm #

    I would pay to see that on PPV, J’Ames.

    *sticks pins on Beckel’s voodoo doll*

  18. Lizard February 29, 2012 at 12:00 pm #

    Beckel actually admitted that Zero’s numbers were more a reflection of what was being presented by the GOP and not him.

  19. Jay in Ames February 29, 2012 at 12:03 pm #

    Beckel has been agreeing with Rush lately. You can tell it bothers him.

    He can’t sit there and not absorb SOME common sense, day after day. Dana Perino is always going after him in a nice way, and he just can’t bring himself to attack her like he does Bolling and Gutfeld.

    @Troy were the storms anywhere near you?

  21. LC Aggie Sith February 29, 2012 at 12:08 pm #

    Bother? More like he feels the licking of evil flames around his feet πŸ˜€

  22. Blackiswhite, Imperial Consigliere February 29, 2012 at 12:08 pm #

    Beckel is an ass. And I will enjoy dining on his bitter, bitter tears.

    So while other states are trying to put limits on the killing of unborn, CA wants to allow non-doctors to perform abortions.

    Quote: Kehoe said half of the state’s counties do not have an abortion provider and she wants to make it easier for women to access the procedure.

    http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2012/02/29/california-bill-would-allow-nurses-and-midwives-to-perform-early-abortions/#ixzz1nkaItsiB?test=latestnews

    sorry a friend sent me the link while we were discussing Holder, Sebelius, and Shrillary’s testimony regarding faith and contraception from yesterday.

  24. LC Aggie Sith February 29, 2012 at 12:14 pm #

    I thought the concept of “back alley abortions” no longer applied. I guess I was wrong.

  25. Lizard February 29, 2012 at 12:14 pm #

    As Beckel’s brother put it he got hit on the head a lot as a kid, ate paint chips and the booze and drugs did not help his reasoning skills.

  26. Jay in Ames February 29, 2012 at 12:15 pm #

    Leave it to California. They are billions in debt, ready to default, and the fact that there isn’t an abortion provider in every county is at the top of someone’s list.

    Doomed. We are doomed.

  27. Lizard February 29, 2012 at 12:16 pm #

    Aggie did you hear/read what Shrillary said yesterday regarding Catholics and contraception?

  28. LC Aggie Sith February 29, 2012 at 12:21 pm #

    I’m afraid to ask, Liz….

  29. Lizard February 29, 2012 at 12:54 pm #

    Also weighing in on the controversy Tuesday was Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. In testimony before a Senate Appropriations subcommittee, the nation’s top diplomat encouraged Catholics opposed to birth control on doctrinal grounds to embrace it for practical reasons.

    “I know that it is a very controversial issue,” Clinton told lawmakers, “but numerous studies have shown that the incidence of abortion decreases when women have access to contraception.”

  30. Lizard February 29, 2012 at 12:56 pm #

    Just a couple of things, first would be nice if the media realized it is not just the Catholic church having issues with this and that for some contraceptives are in the same class as abortions.

  31. Jay in Ames February 29, 2012 at 1:03 pm #

    The media is actively steering that conversation away from abortion, onto the more socially acceptable contraception. Makes it an easier sale to demonize GOP candidates with.

    Not one of them has said they will outlaw contraceptives. Not. One.

    Davy Jones of The Monkeys has died of a heart-attack

  33. Jay in Ames February 29, 2012 at 1:36 pm #

    Davey Jones has passed.

    Hey-hey he’s a zombie.

    Well done!

    Funny Jay

    Bad storms were all to the south. We got a baby boomer and today we have gusting wind to 40mph. But it is sunny and in the low 60s.

    Beckel is nothing but a union thug. I seen his kind on the picket line and enjoyed kicking their ass. I would love to dance with the guy.

    Contraception reduces abortion…..bet it took a scientist to explain that to Hilldebeast.

    Speaking of abortion, I tiptoed over to HuffPo yesterday – there was an article that piqued my interest – and I had to put my 2 cents’ worth in. I tried to keep it civil, as the article wasn’t about abortion, but IVF. However, the hypocrisy was astounding, to say the least – so I stirred the pot…..

    Here’s the article: http://is.gd/Jo2BGM (Be advised – the author is a woman. I repeat, the author is a woman)

    Go down to the first “purple” box for the comment thread I wrote on (My comments are the 3rd and 4th ones; I doubt anyone read them, as I got to the discussion late)

  37. LC Aggie Sith February 29, 2012 at 4:05 pm #

    Wow…I leave to run errands at the bank, liquor store, Lowes’ and Walmart, and find that Davy Jones has died.

    *sobs*

  38. GMLand February 29, 2012 at 4:14 pm #

    which one of the stores did he die at, Aggie?

  39. LC Aggie Sith February 29, 2012 at 4:16 pm #

    That’s just it. Until I know, I will boycott them all.

    Except the liquor store.

  40. LC Aggie Sith February 29, 2012 at 4:18 pm #

    And how are you doing, GML?? You feeling ok?

  41. Teresa in Fort Worth, TX February 29, 2012 at 4:29 pm #

    I threw something together at my place – it’s kinda cute:

    Teresa even if they see your comments they are not going to respond, they cannot fight with logic.
