How should I vote Dad?

I have 3 sons, and 2 of them are voting age. #1 is 21, and #2 just turned 18. Both of them think Obama will probably win the election. #2 said, "Dad, how should I vote??? I feel democratic, but I know you and mom are conservative. I like Obama....but I am not sure?

I said Son go mow the yard and the job pays $40 bucks.
When you are done We will go down to the Salvation Army and give the $40 to the homeless guys.

#2 said " but I mowed the yard!!!!"

I said "now you are a conservative too.!!!!

Thanks for your time

floyd update!

Floyd Brownfield is still in ICU @ Midland Memorial. Turns out that Floyd has a busted left shoulder , on top of the fractured skull, cracked ribs, cracked vertebra, and everything else is badly bruised. They were taking him for another full body scan this afternoon , and the last brain scan showed some swelling. Doctors say this is normal because they just removed the probe from his brain. They are increasing his time out of the induced coma by 15 minutes , twice a day. He will be up to 2 hours this evening.
This is gonna be a long process and the Brownfield family needs your prayers!!!!
Floyd, Nancy, Kevin, Janice, and ......... dang it there is another daughter!!! sorry! and their kids all are still worried sick. Nancy looked great this afternoon, but I can tell she is sick with worry.
She is a warrior and will stand by her man through it all. We talked at length today and she told me stories of Floyd's kindness that he will be pissed about me knowing later. HA HA I can't wait to tell of his philanthropy at the coffee bar , after he is well , of course!!!
Pray for them!!! These are good people.
Thanks for your time

Prayers Needed!!!

A great co-worker was hurt on the job , 2 days ago, and is still in ICU @ Midland Memorial. Floyd Brownfield (vp of operations) took a bad spill from our new staircase and fractured his skull, some ribs, and got generally banged up pretty good. Floyd is in an induced coma in ICU, and all indications are good. But he and his family need your prayers!!!! Floyd and Nancy Brownfield, their children, grandchildren, and coworkers have effectively taken over the ICU waiting room and have put their lives on hold to rally behind Floyd.
Please join me in my prayers for this wonderful family and man. Floyd is the guy who is always at work first (6am) and many days I have been at the plant in Big Spring at 7 pm and he was still there. I think he really likes his job. He has been responsible for the production line and plant for decades, and Fiberod owes him a large amount of their success.
I pray for the rapid recovery of Floyd Brownfield, and Peace for his family!! They are worried sick and need our support. Nancy is a wonderful woman , and we all think of her and Floyd as family -not just co-workers. She will not leave the hospital and we and her family understand her wishes. We will do everything we can to make this better for her and her family.
I have never asked readers for anything , but prayer is greatly needed.
Nancy, Kevin, Janice, Steve, and the rest of the family, I am proud to work with you and Floyd.
I am also greatful that it was Floyd's head that took the brunt of the fall, cause it is a fact, Floyd Brownfield is the hardest headed guy at Fiberod. Love you all and may Jesus answer all your prayers and help this accident be just one more story in the long and eventful life and times of Floyd Brownfield and family.
Thanks for your time

Pemian Basin Oil Show

This is my first PBOS since 1980's and I sure don't remember it being this much work. Of course in the 80's, I was on the other end . Back then I worked for an oil company(now defunct) and all I had to do was show up.
Now that I work for a service company(Fiberod) it is a different story. Not only do we have a booth that we must set up , man , and fill with goodies. But we also host one of the Premiere Parties of the show.
Party is set for Wed, Oct. 22 at the new Fiberod facility on I-20 @ W loop 250. 7 pm
2 bands, beer and wine bar, Italian food, and every employee at Fiberod, plus sister co CDI, plus parent company John Crane.
Motel rooms, caterers, tables , chairs , booze, security, trash detail, tipsy taxis, shirts, sticks (these are the most requested), and more make this one big job.
I am sure glad it is not my job. I am just a bystander in the planning stage, but will be a big part of the labor stage. How come ?? Just my nature , I guess.
If you are a part of this industry (oil and Gas) then you probably have plans to attend the show, If you are a Fiberod customer (especially one of mine) then please consider yourself formally invited to our party. If you just want to crash-----Well , You are on your own. (call me) but my official retort is Sorry, Industry only!!!!
I must leave for Farmington next week and when I return I am sure it will be balls to the wall. Our annual sales meeting is scheduled for Thursday and Friday after the oil show. Good Timing!!! Parent company 's first one, so they will probably not make the same choice two years from now. Lots of hungover sales force!!! Makes for a sour meeting usually. We shall see, but I won't be able to tell how it all works out till November , if I am lucky.
Plan to attend the PERMIAN BASIN OIL SHOW OCTOBER 21-23 and be sure to stop by the Fiberod booth, we will have our green (energy saving product) walking sticks available to all who come by and ask for one. These sticks are used for showing livestock, gun bracing, and dog repellent when taking a walk. They are also great for pointers in a presentation, spouse retraining, and kid attitude adjustment.

See you at the Oil Show,
thanks for your time
