Two Dogs

Two Dogs

A woman was visiting her blonde friend who had acquired two new dogs, and asked her what their names were.

The blonde responded by saying that one was named Rolex and one was named Timex.

“Whoever heard of someone naming dogs like that?” said her friend.

“Hellooooo,” answered the blonde, “they’re watch dogs!”

Visiting The Cairo Museum

The Cairo Museum

Written By; Gary Wonning

Getting to the museum can be a problem. When it comes to intense traffic, no city in the world can compete with Cairo. Sharing the streets are cars, buses, motorcycles, horses and camels, delays are common. One must realize that most of your time will be spent getting from your hotel to the museum. You should plan on spending a long day to lessen the number of trips required to see everything.

There is much is to observe  while traveling the crowded Cairo streets.

There is never a dull moment, be sure to bring your defensive driving skills with you. All the street signs are in Arabic, so unless one is adept in Arabic, it is best to leave the driving to someone else.

This was to be our second visit to the Cairo museum. It would be possible to  spend  weeks here and not see everything. On display in this building are some of the most amazing artifacts man has ever seen. Many are objects from ancient Egyptian history dating back as far as 5,000 years or more. If you are planning on visiting Egypt, plan on spending as least three days in this incredible museum.

I am not  one who is fascinated with museums, even still, I was blown away by what I saw here. Objects are on display from every dynasty and era of Egyptian history. I doubt there is a museum anywhere that has more artifacts than this one. One of the largest displays is King Tut, the boy emperor. Even with all the things displayed from his rule, only about one-fourth are available for viewing. Most of his artifacts are stored in the basement, there just isn’t room for everything. It is hard to imagine how that much wealth could be accumulated in such a short period of time.

There are many artifacts from the 5th dynasty on display. This dynasty dates back to the time of Zohar, builder of the step pyramid and Unas. The 5th dynasty is one of the most prominent and influential in Egyptian history. These pyramids built at Saqqara, are some of the oldest and in the case of Unas, the most beautiful. It is decorated inside with predominately blue walls and ceilings .

Ramses II and his queens are well represented in the museum. As are the many temples and palaces constructed during Ramses’s nearly 70-year reign.

Because of  lax Egyptian policies, photographs can be taken in most areas of the museum. The one requirement that is often invoked, no flash is allowed. With today’s modern digital cameras, that isn’t a problem.

There are thousands of artifacts in the basement of the museum that haven’t been categorized yet.

Many, many items from the ancient culture of Egypt are on display. Much of it from the dynasty of the boy king, King Tut.

Kings Canyon, Northern Territory , Australia

Kings Canyon, Northern Territory Australia

Written By: Gary Wonning

Some enjoyed the break by swimming in the natural pool surrounded by red rocks and cliffs, the rest of us spent our time enjoying the scenery and chit chatting. Suddenly, a loud thump broke the silence, followed by a woman and her two children screaming at the top of their lungs. Looking around, I soon found the cause for alarm, a man had fallen off a thirty-foot ledge onto the sandy beach, the only “soft spot” available.

He wasn’t moving. Finally, after what seemed like an eternity, one foot began twitching, followed by the other, he finally sat up, much to everyone’s surprise. Unhurt, and to the relief of his family, he made the journey back to the bus with only a slight limp.

The sun was racing towards its evening destination, so it was time to leave this beautiful paradise and head back to Alice Springs.

Those Were The Days My Friend

100 years of service

Those were the days my friends

Written By; Gary Wonning

Those were the days my friend, we thought they would never end.

It was a great time to grow up. The war babies and baby boomers were the recipients of a time brought to us courtesy of the “Greatest Generation”. Our parents had endured a depression, and a world war to set in place a time of prosperity never seen before in our history

We grew up in the land of bobby socks and blue jeans, rock and roll, blue suede shoes, white bucks and flat tops. We were all about hot cars, loud music and dancing the night away. It was a time of innocence, sex wasn’t passed out like cotton candy and drugs were unheard of. We sometimes did overindulge in alcohol, but our shenanigans were mild compared to what came in the decades to follow.

Relive the days of yesteryear.

The Vision Of America

Improve your health, Increase your wealth through Young Living

Written By: Gary Wonning

In spite of what we are often told by the media and those who would want to destroy our country and turn it into a socialist nightmare, the United States is still that new Jerusalem, that shining city on the hill that most people look to for guidance and leadership.

We often see what happens to the world condition when America shirks its duty and let’s evil reign over the land.

We have a responsibility to the rest of our world citizens; there isn’t any other country that can do it.

It is the price we pay for living in the greatest country ever known to mankind. We sometimes overreach, but we are the world’s leader.

The rewards are great, and the consequences are disastrous if we fail in our mission.

The Stagecoach

 

The Stagecoach

I had a dream the other night. I was in the old West riding in a stagecoach. Suddenly, a man riding a horse pulls up to the left side of the stagecoach, and a riderless horse pulls up on the right.

The man leans down, pulls open the door, and jumps off his horse into the stagecoach. Then he opens the other door and jumps onto the other horse.

Just before he rode off, I yelled out, “What was all that about?”

He replied, “Nothing. It’s just a stage I’m going through.”

None of the Modern Conveniences, UPS

The plaque located on the exact spot where UPS first began operations

Written By: Gary Wonning

I arrived at the UPS Center, and my doubts increased. The building was old, all the doors were open, and snow was blowing in and the drivers were sorting their parcels on a wooden table covered with dance wax to make them slide easier. I decided to proceed; it couldn’t get any worse than this. It didn’t help when I announced I was applying for a driving job and a couple of drivers looked at me as if I was crazy.

The thought even crossed my mind that maybe I should have my sanity checked by stopping to see a shrink on the way home.

Somehow I knew I was going to get the job. Be it instinct or a gut feeling, I just knew.
