Why I Love America

I will tell you why I love America?
Give me a moment and I’ll explain.
Have you seen a Utah sunset
or a Montana rain?
Have you been fishing on a bayou
down Louisiana way?
Have you walked on the Bridge called
Golden Gate
Over San Francisco Bay?
Have you seen an eagle soaring
high above the Virginia pines,
Or heard the New York City traffic
where Time Square shines?
Does the call of Bryce Canyon thrill you
with all the red rocks galore?
Do you look with awesome wonder
at the Massachusetts shore,
Where men were brave in a big new world
first walked on Plymouth’s rock.
Do you also think of the great men
that lead and never mock
Have you seen a drifting snowflake
in the Tetons way up high?
Have you seen the bright sun come blazing
from a blue Nevada sky?
Do you rejoice when you see the Columbia
rush to the sea,
or say a prayer at Gettysburg
knowing freedom isn’t free?
Have you honored the men at
Mount Rushmore?
Have you seen the mighty Mississippi
flow along Missouri’s shore?
Have you seen a Wyoming snow drift
on a cold winter’s day?
Or watch a storm unfold
her thunderous display?
When you say, “Aloha” it makes you warm.
When you see a surf come roaring in
along Maui’s reef
do you stare in disbelief?
From Alaska’s gold to the Everglades
From the Rio Grande to Maine,
My heart rejoices, my spirit soars,
at the greatness of her domain.
I will tell you why I love America?
there are a million reasons why:
My magnificent America,
beneath God’s big blue sky.

By Leonard Fish

Inspired by the poem by John Mitchem America why I Love Her

The Wise Man

   

People have been coming to the wise man, complaining about the same problems every time. One day he told them a joke, and everyone roared in laughter.

After a couple of minutes, he told them the same joke and only a few of them smiled. When he told the same joke for a third time no one laughed anymore.

The wise man smiled and said:
“You can’t laugh at the same joke over and over. So why are you always crying about the same problem?

Moral of the story:
Worrying won’t solve your problems, it’ll just waste your time and energy.

Pregnant 63 year old Woman?

Woman on Examination Table

A woman went to the Doctor’s office where she was seen by one of the new doctors, but after about four minutes in the examination room, she burst out, screaming as she ran down the hall.

An older doctor stopped her and asked what the problem was, and she told her story.

After listening, he had her sit down and told her to go relax in another room.

The older doctor marched down the hallway to the back where the first doctor was and demanded, “ what’s the matter with you? Mrs. Terry is 63 years old, she has two grown children and several grandchildren, and you told her she was pregnant?”

The new doctor continued to write on his clipboard and without looking up said, “Does she still have the hiccups?”
