Jack’s Winning Words 5/15/17
“Thank you, God, for the good life and forgive us if we do not love it enough.” (Garrison Keillor) Brothers John and Bert came up with the idea of selling “Life Is Good” t-shirts with art work to match…a dog dreaming of a bone…a graduate leaping in the air…a person relaxing in a beach chair. What t-shirt would you design? Someone reading? A traveler? A smiling face? John and Bert also created a shirt reading…”Life Is Good, Because God Is Great!” ;-) Jack
FROM GOOD SAM LEE: Nice!!!😊😊😊 Garrison Keillor had a wonderful show on back in the day😊😊😊====JACK: His last show was in 2016. That wasn't so long ago...but he is missed. I had a chance to meet him personally...and he was just as laid back in person as on the air.
FROM DS IN CALIFORNIA: YAY!!!====JACK: Maroon and White, Fight, Fight!====DS: Yes, we have a few "Moliners" living out here. When we get together we sometimes sing the old fight song. Brings back great memories.====JACK: We are Moliners. We're from Moline. Our team's the finest you've ever seen! You do your best boys. We'll do the rest boys. Fight on for old Moline!
FROM BLAZING OAKS: Yes, most of us are SO blessed, living in America. We fear life may not be as good for our grandkids and 'greats", but people have always been adaptable, so maybe the T-shirts will be just as appropriate 50 years from now! I pray so!! We know God will always be in every situation!====JACK: One of the t-shirts showed Life Is Good! etched in sand beside the sea. Can you read my mind as to why I thought it was especially poignant?
FROM OUTHOUSE JUDY: They make a gardening tee. Right now I have been gardening for days and days. I love it! I have not seen their t-shirt "Life Us Good because God is Great!" I'd love one. I'll look it up!!====JACK: They've created several gardening t-shirts. One says, "I dig everything!"
FROM PEPPERMINT MARY: i have a post card with a smiling child on it. the caption under her states, "anti-depressant". i'd like that on a t-shirt.i miss garrison...i like chris, but i miss garrison😐 ====JACK: One of their shirts reads...'These are the good old days!"====MARY: so...song of the rest of the day!====JACK:
Boy the way Glenn Miller Played
Songs that made the Hit Parade
Guys like us we had it made
Those were the days.
And you knew who you were then
Girls were girls and men were men
Mister, we could use a man like Herbert Hoover again
Didn't need no Welfare state
Everybody pulled his weight
Gee our old LaSalle Ran great
Those were the days!
====MARY: mark and I had an old LaSalle when we were first married. we called it "the boat".
