Boomer’s Ramblings

I thought I had an opinion about a thought, which turned out to be more opinionated than I originally thought.

The other day, while at lunch, one of my friends stated they needed to get gas.  I suggested fast food.

If we really had to eat our words I would be fat(ter).

What if politicians were like gerbils. Running all day on the wheel of life going only where we let them and doing exactly what we wanted.

I am a sports fan I like football pro and college, college basketball, hockey and baseball.  I also like a good movie or TV show. I especially love most anything with action. Some of these new dramedy series are fun to watch.  So the following is more of a politically motivated financial statement.

If all these participants, in the aforementioned paragraph, worried less about keeping up with the Jones-es, or even being the Jones-es, and actually cared as much as about their country as they claim.  We wouldn’t have much of a national debt.

By the way do you know if one (1) baseball player earning minimum wage at the pro level put half (1/2) his earnings toward the debt.  He would still take home in one year, about as much as I take home in seven(7).

The question of the day then becomes:  Greed, where did it start?  More importantly, where does it end?  That would be if it ever ends.  Less greed would mean less hatred.

Sorry folks, my ramblings are supposed to be more on the comical side.  These turned serious quick.

When I am at work I tell my friends it is time to talk serious.  There are important topics to discuss.  They look at me with a curiously disturbed look on their faces.  Then I ask the all important question.  Who is going to the playoffs this year?

If it wasn’t for the sports page, the comics, and the puzzles, I think the newspaper would be a waste of time.

Shouldn’t there be a law against gossiping.  Especially when all your facts are wrong.

Ghosttowns hmmmm I have been to a couple to them (one several times) and have yet to see a ghost.

I have seen some people who look like they could be ghosts.  Nothing a little sun wouldn’t cure.  No, I am not taking off my shirt.

I was downtown yesterday soaking up the festivities of an average day.  When all of a sudden I am sure I spotted Jason Bourne incognito.

You know what I like to do?  I like to walk up to people at work and say something like…”I have had it up to here” I put my hand to my chin.  Then I walk away.  I don’t give ’em a chance to question what I am talking about.

If it wasn’t sor spel chek yuo wouoldnt be aple to ree a think i sade

Sometimes my fingers miss the keys, because sometimes, my mind goes faster than I can type. (Believe it or Not)  

About Bigboomer

Hello, first of all I would like to thank you for visiting my blogsite. I am going to tell you a little about me. My name is Ray, I started writing back in high school. Every once in a while I would come up with a few ideas and would write them down. Most of which became poems others became short stories. Some of my inspirations are of the heart, some of them come from the thoughts of the day. You will see, as you browse threw my site my poetry is about as diverse as you can get. I hope that as you read them some will have you thinking of love, while others will make you feel sorrow. I would like some of them to set you off to an adventure. Finally, I have some poems that may make you hungry. I do have some inspirations that just plane turn into ramblings or rants as, if you read in here, you will see. I have managed to get two books published so far, the first one is titled Pathways, it may be found at xlibris.com/RayBohdan.html. there you can view a couple of excerpts form the book. The second book is Mingling Hues of My Mind it is at publish America A little bit more about me. I am fifty-one years old I have three children, Rainney, Elisa, and Anthony and two well, actually, three grandchildren Raeanne Marie, Graycee, and Amaya. I guess I could go on, but then I am afraid this will come out sounding like a dating profile. Part of my site will be dedicated to my poetry, I plan to break it down into different sections and organize it by type/style. Another section of this site will be dedicated to my blog it will be about my rants/thoughts of the day. These will vary from political, to personal, to comical. I will talk about most anything and everything that I feel may be of interest to someone. I also will devote a section to some of my favorite recipes with hints on how to capture his/her heart by winning their stomach. My favorite foods are Italian and Mexican, but this section will not be limited to those two types. I do believe however, that the most important part of my site will be the dedication pages. These will be to memorialize special loved ones and friends, as well as thank those that have made purchases of my afore-mentioned book. This is exactly what you think it is. A way for me to sell my self as a writer. Publicly get my words and thoughts out into the world. Please believe me when I say that this in no way demeans or diminishes my passions for the people and the love of which I have written, and will continue to write. I trust that once you read my poems you will feel the love i have felt, the pains I have been through, and the joys of life itself. Once again I thank you for stopping by please enjoy.

    • I am glad you enjoyed it. I wrote one the day before that has a little more humor to it. I ramble to get thoughts that are scrambled out of my head. This way I don’t have to worry about making it sound poetic. Or does it make a short story. I can just write what I feel.
