Ain't It the Truth....

Here's something to think about.

I recently picked a new primary care doctor. After two visits and exhaustive Lab tests, he said I was doing 'fairly well' for my age.

A little concerned about that comment, I couldn't resist asking him,

'Do you think I'll live to be 80?'

He asked, 'Do you smoke tobacco, or drink beer or wine?'

'Oh no,' I replied. 'I'm not doing drugs, either!'

Then he asked, 'Do you eat rib-eye steaks and barbecued ribs?

'I said, 'No, my former doctor said that all red meat is very
unhealthy!'

'Do you spend a lot of time in the sun, like playing golf, sailing, hiking, bicycling or hunting?'

'No, I don't,' I said.

He asked, 'Do you gamble, drive fast cars, or have a lot of sex?'

'No,' I said



He looked at me and said,.... 'Then, why do you even give a shit?

Yeppers dat surely the truth..and the one who dies with the most toys wins etc. Reminds me of the old Christian Country song about the lack of trailer hitches on hearses. Meaning it generally felt that a person can't take it with em. Now I did hear a good joke about these rich guys up in heaven driving around in high dollar caddy convertibles and nice looking ladies on board. The point of the joke being..contrary to popular belief a person might could take it with em. Now everybody knows how bad I hate to hijack threads but I got a link to follow which ghuranteed to bring a tear to the eye of anybody over about 50.

Well since I been reflecting on this deal I think they missed a couple or three. I don't recall seeing Josh Randall or Lucas MaCain on there. Ya know old Lucas used to make porno movies back in the old days? Least that whut I heard Larry Flyntt say one time. I just look at that magazine for the articles ya know? In fact I think old Jim Nabor's wife named Rock Hudson even played in a few cowboy roles. He looked sorta like a Cowboy/Cowgirl JR Ewing in the movie "Giant" anyway. Mo of a modern type cowboy but doubt these young buckaroos realize much difference in that scenario. They get WW II cornfused with Viet Nam from whut I can figger out.

I always admired Lucas MaCain, I mean who wouldn't like a guy whose nickname was "the rifleman". But Texas hasn't been the frontier for about 150 years. Alaska is the last frontier.

Hey Boy...you continueth with the custom of some who enjoy preaching to to choir. Alaska is the place to adrmire. Now would I want to live there..maybe if I could bunk with the guv'nor Otherwise it seems a sort of rough and tumble type place. Did you hear about the tourist who accidentally swallowed the formaldahyde laden toe whilst trying to drink the Sour Toe Cocktain at the Red Dawg Saloon. Think I just as soon stay home ane watch the mini weenie dawg chase the bushy tail rats around the cement pond and up the big pee can tree. Do admire any who can endure the place. When I retire color me as moving to Iceland. It cold up there cept close to the volcanoes. I dont do good in the Carrribean..less I got a palm tree to hide under. Do them eskimoes still insist on a person enjoying their wives for the evening..like in the Anthony Quinn movie? Do they really kiss by rubbing their noses together? I am an empty vessel waiting to know whut it about up there in North Texas. Let me know. Thanks.

You got your facts mixed up a little here. You're talking about my part of the world.The Red Dog Saloon is in Juneau, Alaska. However, the "sour toe cocktail" is served at the the Sourdough Saloon at the Downtown Hotel in Dawson City, Yukon Territory, Canada. I have been to both of these establishments on multiple occasions and can certify to these facts.

Well glad to finally bump into the person who knows the facts of this scenario. I hear it on Paul Harvey about 20 years ago about this bar up there which had the cocktail in question...with the object being to take the toe out of the jar of formaldahyde..drop it in a shot glass and cover it with Redeye or whutever them Norhterners drink and slug it down. They had to quit serving it when some tourista accidentally swallowed the toe. It was off some frost bit coal miner back at the turn of the other Century etc. Do any of this sound familar? I think Paul had the right story just the wrong saloon..country etc. Guess the most impotent part is do they still serve it? If so..where did they get the new toe?
