Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to all my friends.

I am happy that I am not in the “Middle Class”.
I am happy that I am in the “Filthy Rich Class”
I am happy to tell you that the above is bull hockey. Don’t believe it.
I am happy that I am in the low-income class living on social security.
I am happy that I see no need to complain about my “class”.
I am happy that I don’t think the world owes me a living.
I am happy that I don’t begrudge those who have more than I do. After all they worked for it.
I am happy that I can still walk a few steps with the aid of a walker.
I am happy that those few steps get me to my scooter where I can ride all over town.
I am happy that my two cars are 15 and 18 years old and I can still drive with the aid of hand-controls.
I am happy that Roz filled her gas tank for the first time in 4 months and it only took 9 gallons.
I am happy that I have a wife that is my lover, cook, back-snatcher, companion and without a doubt my very best friend in the world.
I am happy that I live in a country that is God fearing.
I am happy that I am a Republican.
I am happy that the Democrats won. Now they will have to live in the mess they created.
I am happy in the belief that we will survive as a country and will come back even stronger.
I am happy that I am a meat eater and have no hatred for those who kill cows so I can have my hamburger.
I am happy for those cows that need to be milked twice a day in order for me to have my cold milk.
I am happy for the chickens and pigs that grace my breakfast table with their eggs and bacon.
I am happy that I am not a drinker. After all it must hurt those grapes to be crushed in order to make wine.
I am happy to be able to say Merry Christmas with out fear of persecution.
In general, I am just happy to be happy.
God Bless all of you and have a wonderful rest of the year.
Chuck
