A Funny Story

A couple weeks ago, I did the radio show, which is becoming a regular gig.

I'm Ed McMahon to Gary Wellings.

The Link is here, and in it I tell a story about my prom date who went on to become Miss Michigan, and how it happened.

I describe my high school, but don't name it. It starts at the 31 minute mark.

I sent the link to my boss because he's interested in the show, now.
Also, I thought it was one of my better efforts.

We've been incredibly busy at work, even over the holidays, with a new product launch.
We had engineers in the plant on Christmas day.
They're Muslims, so it wasn't a big deal to them.
I had to go check the alarms because nobody told me they were going to be there.

So I'm home one evening around 10pm and I get a text message from my boss, the Director of Operations.

"Did you go to St. Mary's?"

I did not know what prompted this. I was afraid he had Facebooked me.

I answered, "If you mean did I attend Catholic Central which merged later with St. Mary's Academy for Girls to become SMCC, yes. Why?

He replied he had attended there.

Then he said that his father-in-law announces the football games.
I replied that a classmate and former friend of mine (who is now a big time radio personality in Detroit, Paul W. Smith) announced our games.

He then names his father-in-law.
His FIL is another classmate of mine.

Scherie asks why I'm laughing at my phone.

Then he names some other classmates of mine, one of whom he used to work with.

I ask how he knew, and he said he was listening to the radio show in his office.

We still grin at it.

He told me he hangs out with his FIL and my former classmates more than people his age.

Amazing. Yesterday, he said his FIL said "Hi".

Small world.

In case you're interested, I did another show yesterday.

Scherie had the show on yesterday afternoon and our son Scott was home visiting from the navy while it was on. He was very surprised to hear me on the radio.

On the show, I made two points I would have liked to develop here.

One is that Obama may be poking the bear in order to set up a situation requiring him to declare martial law and retain the presidency.
We talked about that a while.

The other is that Obama and Kerry are channeling their inner anti-semites after the left accused Trumps associates of the same.

Ask Bibi who he thinks is anti-semite.
They're called Jews because they are from Judea which long predates "Palestine".
Their religion long predates a competing religion in the region that is as made up as "Scientology".
The Western Wall (and Jerusalem as a whole in the hands of Jews) long predates Mohammed and his fantasies.

Well, may we all have a prosperous and Happy New Year.
I still find it hard to believe that we dodged the Clinton Tragedy.
Let us pray that God delivers us from evil.


  1. I truly believe that the Lord intends for Mr. Trump to be President. So despite our misgivings & sincere distrust of the current Resident, I don't think He will allow such deceit. Just the same, we need to keep praying. The Lord can't answer prayer that isn't said.

  2. Rev. Paul is right.
    GOD is in control here.
    I'm old. But I'm also wilier than most, and I have lived a blessed life so I can say "If I die tomorrow I still feel blessed."
    I am sick at heart at what is happening to my country.
    That heart tells me I still need to defend God's chosen.
    To that tend, even as an old man, I will rise up if necessary.
    Thanks Ed. I'll listen to your links.

    1. Psalm 122:6King James Version (KJV)

      6 Pray for the peace of Jerusalem: they shall prosper that love thee.

  3. just feels like we jumped out of the frying pan and... missed out on a great opportunity. There goes another 2017 resolution regarding trying to be optimistic...

  4. What a small world! I like it when paths cross like that. Kinda cool.
    If DingleBarry is pokin' the bear itchin' for a fight, the bear ain't bitin'. Bet that disappoint the little petulant puke.
    DingleBarry can't get out of my country soon enough. He's written his own laws (again). He plans to regulate yeast in bread (not a joke) and the EPA has banned burning wood. Ooookkkkk .... I'd like to see the last one enforced in Alaska. Nearly all Alaskans only have wood to stay warm, are crack shots and heavily armed. That's gonna be interesting.
    Happy New Year to you and Scherie. ~:)

    1. Yeast in bread? Treason!
      Happy New Year to you and Hubby, Sparky!

  5. Nicely done on the radio gig! And yes, the world does get smaller with age...LOL

  6. Happy New Year, Ed and Scherie...I'm glad you're enjoying the radio show so much; good job! And I love the 'small world' stuff.

  7. BTW. I did listen and it was another fine job on your part with that radio gig... every time it seems your ti.. ti.. timing is improving.

  8. I hope you and yours had a very MERRY CHRISTMAS and are having a very HAPPY NEW YEAR. May we display your header on our new site directory? As it is now, the site title (linked back to its home page) is listed, and we think displaying the header will attract more attention. In any event, we hope you will come by and see what is going on at

    1. Thank you so very much for giving permission. You can see your linked header under All, Beliefs, Entertainment and the United States. If you could say something (preferably good) about here and there, we would greatly appreciate it.
