"More Random Thoughts"

When I was working at the airport we used to have a guy that made homemade Italian Pasta Vasul. God, do I miss that. I like saying that…….Pasta Vasul……

I wonder if the Shuttle crew can see things blowing up in Afghanistan?

I’ll never understand how or why a guy will wear his pants around the bottom of his bottom. I’m sure you have seen that…someone told me they are called “Wanna-be’s. Whatever that is. I think its some sort of club. Someone should tell them it doesn’t help if they need to run for their life. It would be unmanly to run pulling up your pants.

My dad use to say, “Lorenzo behave yourself I don’t want to see any "monkey shines” I have no idea what a monkey shine is……. I looked it up on Wikipedia and I’m not sure I like the definition.

I think my Dad had a thing for monkeys…..At times when I would copy something or do things that other youngsters would do He would say, “Lorenzo, monkey see monkey do“……It could be why I like monkeys today……

My grandfather, father and grand mother called me Lorenzo. My mother called me Lawrence. My aunt hung the moniker Larry on me…today most people call me Lar… Like life, even your name gets shorter.

Every once and a while when I was young I would be upset over something trivial. My dad would say, “Lorenzo don’t make a mountain out of a mole hill”.

When I was young…Somewhere around 3rd or 4th grade. I was the victim of a bully. I’m sure there are many of us that have had that kind of trauma happen….I came home crying and my dad explained very carefully what to do when confronted with this behavior…..Keep in mind I was a shy quiet kid and found it very difficult and painful to be in that situation as I’m sure many of us were. My dad took me aside and told me when this bully started to pick on me and push me around to pretend to run away and when he chased me to turn quick and punch him in the nose…..He said, “The force of the punch with him running into my fist would cause his nose to bleed“. He told me that he would never pick on me again. I never got a chance to do that. The bully died 6 months later of a brain tumor. Years later I worked with his dad in the same building. It just happened to be in the building where the guy made the Pasta Vasul. I never mentioned that incident to his dad…..I’ll bet he thought of his son when he seen me……We were the same age…..

Quote…..“I've had enough of being led by the nose by this whole population which is destroying us, (and) destroying our country by imposing their ways." Actress Brigitte Bardot talking about the Muslims after her arrest in 2006.. She is an animal activist who protested how the Muslims kill animals. I'm afraid to ask...France is home to Europe's largest Muslim community, estimated at five million people.

Comment....Brigitte baby, you ain't seen nothing yet.

Wow!Larry:( You poor kid! That is traumatic! My Aunt told me to grab a girls hair once and ram my knee into her face, as I brought her face down. It made me physically ill, but she never, ever, tortured me again! I am sorry that you also had to work with his Father. Your random thoughts, have me thinking about bullies again! I HATE mean people... Hope that you have a Friday filled with all that is Beautiful Larry! Love, Teresa...Thanks for sharing your life's memories and tragedies with me! ....
