DOG COLLARS AND EVENING IN PARIS: DATING IN THE 50'S

I remember as a kid in the 1950's how teenage girls had a style of wearing a dog collar around their ankle.  Apparently, when a girl wore the collar on her LEFT ankle, it indicated she was going steady. If it was on her RIGHT ankle, it meant she wasn’t going steady. Sound strange? Remember, it was an era of petticoats, sock hops, padded bras, girdles, and girls washing their hair with bath soap.  Let's not forget Evening in Paris perfume that was available at most drugstores.  Cheap stuff for sure but every guy dreamed of going home after a date with the smell of it lingering on him courtesy of some lovely 17 year old babe.

At this moment, if you are young enough, many of you are probably asking, "What the hell is ‘going steady?’" Going steady happened when a boy and girl THOUGHT they were in love as teenagers and made a pact that they wouldn’t date anyone else. Of course, the fickle nature of youth would eventually kick in and the couple would break up but it was a pretty good deal for a while as it guaranteed both members a date on a Saturday night. Unfortunately, occasionally the couple would become a bit too serious and another baby boomer would enter the world courtesy of a hot night in the back seat of a ‘51 Ford.

Having never had kids of my own (I think), I’m not sure what teenagers do now other than what I see from a distance. For example, it doesn’t look like going steady or dating is a big deal anymore. In the ‘50s, a boy would nervously call a girl in the hopes of obtaining a precious date for a Saturday night. That few moments between asking the big question and waiting for the answer was agony! What if she said "No!"? Even worse, what if she said, "Gee, I really like ya a lot but Ralph already asked me out." I think "I like ya a lot" was more devastating to hear than "No." It meant "Not in your wildest dreams are you ever going to touch me."

I’ve noticed in recent years that teenage boys and girls run in groups. I’ve seen mobs of them at places like Paradise Valley Mall in Phoenix and have noticed that several malls in recent years have imposed restrictions on having kids "hangin’ out." The girls dress sloppy like the boys and receive the same minimal respect from their peers. That’s a lot different from my teenage days when we put girls on a pedestal. Well, some girls anyway!

It’s more proof of how the world has changed. Today kids have iPhones which never leave their ears. We had 45 rpm records. We had gas stations with attendants and "ding-ding" bells and restrooms that had a purple neon light under the toilet seat to give the illusion it was sanitizing. Today you pump your own at Circle K. We had girls with dog collars on their ankles, today they actually put collars on dogs. Imagine that!

You are funny funny....and you're right, the 50s were a blast...probably the best decade ever and maybe a little bit into the 60s...the music, the dancing, and the dating were special, drive in movies and all....It worked for me because the drive-ins were night time , and it didn't take away from my golf efforts during the sunshine hours.....won a dance contest once, and the judge was 'Fabian'....remember that guy from Philadelphia, PA.

Thanks for the memories.

Jim McAllister said...

Glad you liked that, Dave. I think we were lucky to be born when we were. These are lot more serious times; not really a fun era like we had.

I certainly remember Fabian. He was huge around 1960, even made a film "North to Alaska" with John Wayne.

How about Adam Scott? Two for two in Florida. The way he played number 18 on Sunday was incredible. That was one tough par with he route he took!

Mike Slater said...

Jim, I was born in 1951 so I wasn't old enough to date. I didn't start dating until the early 70's. Most dates were one and done. I dated my first wife about six months and we married but it only lasted three years. We had a daughter which I got to pay child support for 16 years.

After that I dated a few more times until I met Deb. Something seemed to click and we'll be married 36 years in May.

Rick Kepple said...

First, I have been convicted of "Defective Equipment," a $50 fine, meaning bad me for making two marijuana films, I guess. The Jeep is not running, and I'm giving it to Jen anyway.

The dog collar signifies ownership. Going steady is pretty much owned property. I'm cool with that. It's the circle thing, you know.

Jen pretty much keeps me broke these days. I guess you could say that she's collared me around her little finger and really she needs to do nothing, except drive me around and cook now and then. She's the CEO of the company, the boss of the studio, and she gives final approval on the films and often she makes some really great suggestions!

Hey Jimmy, for supper I'm having some Birdseye penne and vegetables and I'm putting a can of chili over them, like you've talked about having in Cincinnati. Dale and Michelle helped me record the voices for the new episode. Michelle is the alien voice. Very cool.

Nice blog, Jimmy. Dog collars. Cool.

Jim McAllister said...

Mike,

It's pure luck sometimes to meet the right girl. I was lucky because I never intended to get married or have kids. When I was single I just wanted to meet all the girls I could and party all the time; kids were of no interest to me. All the guys my age who were married with kids didn't seem too thrilled about their situations but they liked to tell me I was "selfish" for not wanting kids. I never quite understood that.

I was in the USAF from age 20 to 24 and sure wasn't going to get married while in the military. I knew guys who were and they never seemed very happy starving from paycheck to paycheck. Wen I got out I met Barb about a month later and I was hooked so we got married after two years of going together. Now it is 48 years later and we are still in love.

It's all about meeting the right person.

Jim McAllister said...

Rick,

"Defective equipment?" I've never heard of such a charge. When it comes to marijuana they seem to call it everything.

The dog collars were really popular in the 50s. I was just a kid most of those years and when I started dating in the late 50s, the fad was over. Just another one of those crazy ideas that came and went within a few years.

I'll see if I can find Barb's Cincy chili recipe and send it to you. It's pretty unique stuff; we've been eating it for many years.
It's great with beans or poured over spaghetti.

Mike Slater said...

Jim, meeting the right person the first time is just luck. I wasn't that lucky. When I got married at 24 I thought she was the right one but I was mistaken. After the divorce I dated several women but they all had young children. When I met Deb she had two young girls.

It takes some of us a while to find the right girl but it's worth it.

Jim McAllister said...

Mike,

I agree; it takes a lot of luck to meet the right girl. I never thought it would happen to me. I was having a good time darting around after the USAF and never really thought much about getting married. If fact, I swore I never would until I met Barb. It was pretty much a case of lucky timing with being in the right place at the right time and I'm glad things turned out well.

Here we are looking forward to our 49th anniversary on August 21 of this year. Time sure zips by when one is having a good time!

Rick Kepple said...

No Jimmy, it was a moving violation charge. They made it "Defective Equipment" and I don't admit guilt like the Alford Plea. I see it as a sign from God and I am giving Jen the Jeep. The day that I had that stroke thing, I felt fine. Then suddenly, I wasn't. I do not drive.

But yeah Jimmy, it is political about the marijuana films that I made. Punishment. In Episode 7, space aliens come to Earth, BO registers them to vote and they come to my patch of the woods to par-tay! Interstellar potheads. You know what a conviction is like that, right Jimmy? Free advertising. I admitted to a mistake in one video and my viewership jumped by 75 percent! With a misdemeanor conviction ... if only the media would see it as newsworthy ...

I'll have to give the recipe to Jen. Speaking of ... have to go eat supper with her.

Rick Kepple said...

I had just finished writing to Donald Trump on his Facebook page that both he and marijuana represent the frustration in America with the government's lies. And now the riots. This year is not going to end well at all.

I figured out Episode 8. I interview Father Time about Daylight Savings Time. It's March. Father Time is about twenty now. He did say that it was his idea so he can sleep in. He also said that he snowbirds it from Missouri to Arizona and both dies and is reborn in the Southwest. Then grows up in Missouri. He said that Time does occasionally fly and it's usually on Southwest Airlines. Father Time also wants people to know that there is a "good Time," and she's a nun in the family in Milwaukee.

Jim McAllister said...

Rick,

The protests are going to help Trump as I think his supporters will really come out of the woodwork now. It's pretty bad when a guy can't even have a rally without a bunch of assholes wanting to violently break it up because they disagree with him. There are a lot of military types who support Trump and I think they will be showing up in support. There could be a lot of heads busted before this is over.

I see where Caitlyn is getting involved with criticizing Hillary which is causing a big backlash in the transgender community. What a world, huh? Who would have thought it would come to this? There is going to be a lot more before it is over. I'm glad there are protests on Trump; it will help him in the long run as he has plenty of defenders.

Mike Slater said...

Jim, you must have lived a charmed life. Some of us aren't that lucky the first time. If I would have found Deb first I could of saved myself a lot of grief and a ton of money.

I watched the protests on FOX last night and noticed most of the protesters were black. Of course it is Chicago and it's been run by Democrats for decades so it's not surprising.

Jim McAllister said...

Mike,

I never thought I would ever get married. I was hot with one girl from 1959-61 and while she wanted to get married I knew that as much as I liked her there was no way I was getting married at 19 especially with the military staring me in the eye. Besides, I was at the age where I enjoyed seeing all the girls that I could and didn't want to settle down yet.

When I went into the USAF it was off to San Antonio and boot camp. Then I was in Amarillo for a few months at tech school then it was off to Missouri and Germany until I got out in Sept. '65. It was a single man's paradise but would have been tough if married.

That's when I got lucky. I went back home to Cincy at age 24 in Sept. of '65 and enrolled at the U. of Cincinnati. About a month later I looked over our back fence and there sat a gorgeous 20 year old girl who also was in school at Cincy. To make a long story short, we got to talking and she accepted my offer to drive her to school with me. Two years later we got married in August of '67. That was 48 1/2 years ago and here we still are.

From some of the stories I have heard from guys, I consider myself one lucky SOB!

I think those protesters are doing Trump a favor. Most people with any brains will consider them jerks and they may swing over to Trump. They are all scared their free shit will disappear if Trump gets in. I see also where Caitlyn is catching hell for bashing Hillary. He/she is a Trump person!

Rick Kepple said...

Slept poorly last night. Told Jen that I needed a bag of brownies. She never came back with the bag of donuts of course. Stupid government. I quit driving after last July. Jen thinks they're setting me up.

Missouri cops and prosecutors following Obama's orders and going after the disabled and dying. If you ever wanted to see what Nazi Germany looked like, and I'm sure Bodo is laughing, but we're living in it - pre WW II.

It's gonna get ugly before November. Look at Chicago and St. Louis. Dudes. I told you that there would be violence and either it was natural or created. But in order for their plan to work, they need violence. Not sure of the details of the plan, but pretty sure it involves medical marijuana and identifying gun owners who need the weed to live, then disarm the bad old dying people! The media will say it had to be done and you and everyone else will nod in agreement. Like what happened in Oregon with those ranchers.

It's the Death Panels you wrote about come to life.

Jim McAllister said...

Rick,

Bodo? LOL I wonder what he is doing now. He has to be in his 80s unless someone finally kicked the shit out of him.

Chicago, St. Louis, and don't forget my hometown of Cincinnati. They had their skirmish the other day too. Stay tuned; more is on the way. Those problems are being staged to defeat Trump but I think they will be helpful to him. It's simply the way Dems do business with a lot of their low educated types. Anyone with sense can see that.

You and I are better off living in the boonies. It will get worse before it gets better and I want to be out of the line of fire.

This country has really changed.

Mike Slater said...

Jim, Bodo was a real piece of work.I used to give him jazz on his blog all the time. He didn't like guns and didn't think anyone should have them. I told him since he didn't have guns he should put a sign in his yard saying this is a gun free home. I'm sure the bad guys would appreciate it.

You're right about the protesters. They don't want to see Trump or Cruz be president. It scares the crap out of them. They don't want to lose their gravy train. There all a bunch of losers.

Jim McAllister said...

Mike,

Bodo was the prototype of the typical unrealistic liberal mentality. They like to think that people are good and we need to relax and be more understanding. What fools they are!

I've always agreed with Teddy Roosevelt who said "Speak softly and carry a big stick." It's a lot more comforting to know one has some backup. Hence, I never go anywhere without my .38.

There was a recent letter from a guy in Chandler to the Republic that says it all. You'll enjoy this:

If we're ever attacked, be sure to stand up and say "Shoot me first!"

Just a short comment regarding the Fountain Hills writer who wrote, "If you want to protect me, you and your gun stay home." ("Who asked you to protect me with your gun?"

Message received and understood. But, if by happenstance we are at the same venue, are attacked and you still insist on being a victim, kindly stand up, raise your hand and loudly proclaim, "Shoot me first."

David Neubart, Chandler

Mike Slater said...

Jim, I see a lot of that on the Az blogs. What those loser liberals don't understand is I don't carry a gun to save their sorry asses, I carry to protect myself and my wife. One liberal woman was afraid that I would shot her but I assured her I would never waste a perfectly good bullet on a liberal.

I asked Bodo once what he would do if he was mugged or car jacked. He told me he would give the bad guys any thing they wanted and run away because he said he was a really fast runner. I then asked him if he could out run a bullet. No answer.

Rick Kepple said...

Hey, I got a warning letter from my lawyer today and there is usually a late fee, but in my case, they'll issue a warrant and put me in jail. I brought in Nick Raines, the president of a Missouri marijuana group and then I made two films about legalizing weed. Wow, the egos are massive! They're Obama's friends. Republican turncoats.

Bodo stayed at my home twice. Had all that bacteria in my head then, or I'd have read him better. My friends didn't trust him. His father worked for Hitler as a Nazi soldier. He harbors resentment toward Americans for how they were disarmed.

In the quest to find SN, I have had almost nothing but bad experiences and then Bodo and he's on a world tour. Brings me back an opened bottle of Queen Mary II rum and says Customs opened it. They don't do that. So I poured it out figuring he poisoned it.

And now, the government has made it very clear that they want to kill Americans in death panels and I'm one of the targets. Nice.

Jim McAllister said...

That sounds like an answer dumb ass Bodo would give. He had some sort of twisted idea that he was a fast runner which is funny in itself. I like the way liberal idiots think that all they have to do is hand over their money and they will be safe. The crook would probably shoot the dummy anyway and you are right: Never has anyone outrun a bullet.

I'm with you on carrying. I have my gun for the protection of my wife and myself. The liberals are on their own. Let them try to talk the bad guys out of pulling the trigger. I'll worry more about my getting my round off first.

Where do we get these clowns? Liberalism is a disease that needs to be eradicated like polio or any other disease. Maybe we should market some fancy "Shoot me first" signs for them.

Rick Kepple said...

Here you are, Jimmy. It took a while to finish, but a very weird Ozarks Trackers with space aliens! Stag beer. Weed. Chicks. Cartoon painted Rick. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_Qq9itYkDhQ

In the next episode, I interview Father Time. He's in his twenties now and living in the Ozarks. By October, he'll be in Arizona and die on New Years Eve and then reborn and brought back to Missouri by Star Seeds and raised until the end of February. Father Time likes my films, so he agreed to give an exclusive interview.

You guys are lucky. My parents died long ago, I was homeless, no other choice in life and I took what was given to me - the military. Once in, you're never truly out. Not at my level. Retaliation for Chicago is under way. The RNC was behind it. No proof yet, but there will be.

Rick Kepple said...

I Facebooked that I needed a ride to go vote. Totally ignored. A friend from out of state called her friend near me and that total stranger came, picked me up and took me to vote. Not joking one single bit.

So when I worked as a writer, people liked me. Now when I am of no use to them, I'm ignored. Nice. The friend is the wife of another Mil-Intel operator who was in Gitmo. Crazy people got to stick together, she says.

Mike Slater said...

Jim, liberalism is a mental disease with no known cure. I see that every day at the Arizona Republic with their editorial board and of course Montini, Roberts and Valdez.

i can't figure out why liberals have such a problem with guns. Just because they don't like them they don't think anyone should have them. They hate the 2nd Amendment and the NRA.

I don't really care what liberals think about guns or me. It's mind over matter, I don't mind because they don't matter.

Rick Kepple said...

Holy shit. Bernie Sanders took Missouri by one point and it's because of Revenge Voting. Donald Trump too.

The views look pretty good on the new "reality video" with the space aliens. My friend in NYC suggested the other day that I'm psychologically manipulating the American people with my videos, but that's just silly. I'm just a dumb old country boy living in a barn.

So I was right in 1986 when I told Hillary Clinton that one day she would be President. Trump can't beat Trump. As the election nears, his ego will push him until godlike behavior starts to emerge. He's already told his supporters that he would pay their legal fees if they disrupted other rallies and then he crawfished.

The RNC is powerless. They dug their own grave by making corporations into people. They couldn't win the people back now with free beer. It's going to be Clinton beating Trump. He can't last. His ego won't hold out.

Jim McAllister said...

Mike,

It's been almost two years since I discontinued the Republic. They kept raising the price until I said "Enough is enough!" I was basically just taking it because I have always taken a newspaper wherever we lived. However, when it got to $40 a month I figured I could get pissed off a lot cheaper than that. Every day it was the same crap: Montini, Valdez, Benson and the rest of them preaching their liberal crappola. Last year they canned Doug MacEachern, the only conservative they had, and replaced him with some liberal Mexican woman.

The lady next door still takes it and gives it to me every day after she reads it. I glance at it but use it mainly for the New York Times crossword puzzle and that's all. I'm surprised they are able to stay in business. Better papers have been closing daily across the country so I think their days have to be numbered. They are just a bunch of liberals working for an obsolete medium.

Jim McAllister said...

Rick,

I don't know why Trump even pretends to be a Republican. They have become a bunch of wimps which is probably why they don't like him. This is getting crazier by the day. Sanders has no chance. It will be Trump or Hillary. Hopefully, it will be Trump. He is not perfect but he sure beats that stupid bitch. She left those guys hang out to dry in Libya and no one seems to give a damn. Maybe they will on election day. We can only hope.

Now we have the Supreme Court bullshit to think about. It never ends.

Jim McAllister said...

Rick,

Trump finally took Missouri by an eyelash I guess. That's good; I hope he keeps rolling. He has a helluva following and he is an old time hard ass. That's what we need. Screw all these whiny immigrants; they should be glad they are even here at all. Maybe a few more San Bernardinos and NYC's will finally get the point across.

Mike Slater said...

Jim, I started reading the Republic in the 60's. It was a good conservative paper. Why it's still in business is beyond me. A liberal paper in a red state like Arizona can't last forever.

The Republican establishment hates Trump and Cruz. If neither one has the number of delegates by convention time watch them try and pull a fast one to deny them the nomination. If they do that the Republican Party is done.

Rick Kepple said...

Hillary wound up taking Missouri by two tenths of a point. She will be up against Trump.

Hey Jimmy. Paid my fine for not having a muffler on the Jeep. It was originally a serious charge, but reduced to "defective equipment," me being the defective equipment. It's a sick Republican joke. Punishment for making two films and exercising my freedom of speech.

BTW, the GOP admitted that the Primaries are a total waste of time, since they have complete authority to choose the candidate. Nothing like throwing more gasoline on a small fire to help revolution get along.

Rick Kepple said...

Jimmy, it's "Revenge Voting."

Donald Trump, Hillary Clinton and marijuana = jobs.

Donald Trump promises a return to the glory days, which he can't possibly deliver, but the American people are so fed up that they do not care!

Americans remember the Clinton days when life was good. So they want Hillary Clinton.

Marijuana promises lots and lots of jobs to broke, unemployed people tired of being called LAZY and sick of living on entitlements. It's a passive revolution and if the government doesn't start listening, it will turn bloody.

Jim McAllister said...

I agree, Mike.

The establishment Republicans hate Trump and do not want him under any circumstances. If he gets the 1,237 and they try to screw him out of it, I will never vote for them again. I guess I wouldn't vote at all because I could never vote for a Democrat.

I used to take the Republic in the morning and Gazette in the afternoon. I agree, they were good papers in the past but not now. It's the same old garbage every day with Valdez, Laurie, Benson, and the rest of them. It's no wonder their circulation keeps dropping and they are letting people go.

Mike Slater said...

Jim,The establishment Republicans don't want Trump or Cruz. They prefer a moderate like the governor from Ohio. He would work with the Democrats and wants amnesty for illegals. I could never vote for him.

I've been voting since 1972 and have never voted for a Democrat and never will and won't vote for a moderate Republican.

The Arizona Republic is nothing but a mouthpiece for the Democrat Party. It's all liberal all the time. I can't wait until they go out of business and fold up.

Rick Kepple said...

Jimmy, I had to make a little change to the video. It is all fixed now.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Lc3JFn8Duvg

There was an error made and you can still see it a little toward the end. Ozarks Trackers: Episode 7 (v.2)

Speaking of mistakes ...

I read that March 15, 2016 that the Republican Party officially died. Actually, I think they're just on life support. I told them to legalize weed. The biggest names in the Missouri Republican Party are going ... WHAT HAPPENED!

And guess what, Jimmy? So then the morons start right back into that entitlement shit, thereby proving you don't need brains to have money. We will get Trump or Clinton because of their stupid games.

Jim McAllister said...

I'll check it out, Rick. Thanks!

This is going to be a crappy election year. I'm going to hold my nose and vote for Trump. Between him and worthless Hillary, it has to be for Trump. She is trash.

Jim McAllister said...

Mike,

As much as I hate to say it, Hillary will probably win. That's the way it is going in this country. We have a lot of people on the dole and they don't want to chance losing their freebies. They know that if Trump wins, they might get kicked off the gravy train. Then there are the ones who give her a pass on killing the guys in Libya. They figure that is over and done with so the hell with it. I can't accept that. She shouldn't even be allowed to run.

I think the next big crisis is going to be ISIS. They are going to do something over here that is terrible. Our borders are open and we are ripe for tragedy. Then we have an idiot like Obama running the show who lets terrorists out of Guantanamo and kisses Castro's ass. I'm sure Hillary will be continue that line of thinking. Go figure, huh?

Mike Slater said...

Jim, you may be right. I only hope Hillary will be indicted by the Justice Department for her e-mails. The big house would be better than the White House. She would look good in an orange jump suit. If she is elected it will be just 4 more years of Obama with amnesty for illegals and more gun control laws.

The Republican establishment would rather lose the election than back Trump or Cruz. They don't care what the voters want they only care what they want.

Rick Kepple said...

I just threw down Jimmy's blogspot blogger.com page on the Joe Pags' Facebook page with a Fox News video of the nitwits that shut down the freeway northeast of Phoenix going to a Donald Trump Rally.

I wrote ... I wonder what Scottsdale's writer Jim McAllister thinks of that?

You'll like the next video, Jimmy. Taking a pause to create a short film with Dell Mack, Dannie O'Reilly and Harry Martin singing Ping Pong, an anti-meth song. Dell Mack tells a story in the credits about meeting Jimi Hendrix and exchanging albums with a struggling Janis Joplin.

Rick Kepple said...

Here Jimmy, you like Dannie O'Reilly songs. This is Dannie O'Reilly, Dell Mack and Harry Martin jamming out at Dell's place. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D3vB9DMGVzY

Jim McAllister said...

Rick,

Those fools don't realize that they are helping Trump with their bad behavior. The old saying "every knock is a boost" sure applies to them.

Jim McAllister said...

Rick,

Great stuff! Tell the guys I really liked it. Great guitar!

Rick Kepple said...

I may be getting interviewed by Fox News

Jim McAllister said...

Really? Keep me up to date! Finally, a chance for celebrity, huh?

Rick Kepple said...

Fox News wants my opinions on medical marijuana. Blood tests. VA. PTSD. The mysterious school bus ticket when I brought Nick Raines in to fight for Dell Mack and I've had strokes. The incredible recovery. Music education, medical marijuana research and it all has to fit neatly into about a 30 second clip, which is what they will do.

The Mo. Pulaski County prosecutor said that there is no evidence that PTSD is treated by marijuana, but in 2014, Health and Human Services discovered that it does. In 2015, HHS approved private companies to research marijuana molecules to develop a specific medication to treat PTSD. The prosecutors are full of it when they say there is no proof.

I'm up this morning, because I forgot to take my herbal medication before bed and apparently had a seizure or something.

Rick Kepple said...

I may have hit ISIS back, Jimmy. And I am hiring Jen with insurance too. She runs everything by design. Might work on a new film tomorrow.

Rick Kepple said...

Jimmy, I shared information with the the Army about something I found in America and they responded on Facebook saying how they owe me a lot for the information I give them. Then suddenly, I'm getting friend requests from all over the world. I don't read the language, but I think they're asking for help and telling me about their religions, their kids, and strange language across a black sky and crescent moon sometimes. So I think some are praises, cries for help, firewalker dudes, Middle East, Asia, Africa. Religious leaders. Filmmakers. Desperate people. Global hillbillies mostly.

If the world wants a legend, she's about five foot tall, wears high heels and sings. I'm just some guy that writes social and political stuff.

Rick Kepple said...

Well Jimmy, Jen resigned. One outsider said the magic words - You Might Lose Your Food Stamps.

So Jimmy, I've got the perfectly designed studio proving my ideas work and I'm in the wrong location. I won't try to compete with Food Stamps. People need to do the work they are best suited at doing.

Jim McAllister said...

Sorry to hear about the food stamps with Jen. I guess a girl has to eat but it's too bad it affects you in an adverse way. Put on your selling shoes and see if you can change her mind/

Rick Kepple said...

Jimmy, I told you that Jen acts just like SN. Ain't no reasoning with that mind. They believe what they believe. Both people have a silver spoon of a kind. They're best at having life handed to them. One rich, the other on Food Stamps. Both comforts.

Why should I try to talk someone back into work they don't want to do, Jimmy? It's unnatural for her. If she wants to be treated blue collar, that's what she'll get. SN is right about one thing. Can't turn a work horse into a race horse.

Rick Kepple said...

Jen said she wants back in. Women! Yeah, well the name DR J Studio LLC would make no sense if she dropped out.

Yep, Jen is just like SN. She's still nervous about losing her Food Stamps.

She still doesn't know that her friends are sabotaging her life, but I know. They'll deal with me someday for it too.

Thank God. I wasn't looking forward to being CEO. The other guy wanted a position of authority ... he's CFO. He can find us some money.

Rick Kepple said...

Happy Easter, Jimmy!

DR J Studio LLC is solely owned and operated by me. Financed by me. People on Food Stamps resigned saying that they feared losing their wealth. They are quite satisfied buying expensive cell phones, buying a case a beer a day, popping pills and partying like a rock star while conning other Americans into paying for their stuff, working under the table, not paying taxes and absolutely no ambition! SN will likely be their best friend, even though they pirate music. Those folks wanted me to get free software instead of paying for the subscription of licensed software.

I'm supporting Donald Trump. I don't work with lazy Americans.

Rick Kepple said...

Happy Easter from DR J Studio LLC. This song is Dannie O'Reilly, John Evans and Dell Mack playing a new Dell Mack song never before released. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Vg_FS5r1NiA

Note to self: find a girlfriend who will wear a dog collar. It goes around their neck now, I think.

Jim McAllister said...

Happy Easter, Rick. Thanks for your support of Trump. He is not perfect but he sure is better than the competition.

Jim McAllister said...

Rick,

Thanks for the recording by Dell, Dannie, and John. I love their guitar work, great strummers. Keep them coming.

Rick Kepple said...

Hey Jimmy. Pulaski County Missouri says that Winters Bone is inaccurate and they don't want the producers making a film. Would you be so kind and tell them to move it to the Boothill of Missouri? I figure you know people to get that done.

Jim McAllister said...

Winter's Bone? What's that?

Rick Kepple said...

I don't know. Some movie about meth cooks in the Ozarks. I've never seen it. I'm not a real fan of junkies.

I'm editing a video now that I found from a clip of Dannie O'Reilly and Dell Mack playing at my garden party a few years ago. Cool. I'm finding a bunch of stuff that I filmed and forgot about.

Jen would beat me up if I asked her to wear a dog collar. Unless it had spikes and said Harley Davidson on it. I need to buy the parts to get her Harley fixed. Same one that's on the CD cover.
