So I think it's important for everyone to smile or laugh every now and then, because it just relieves our relieves a lot of stress. So here's what I call an opportunity for you to laugh. Your frown off me, Alexa, where's my dad. Alexa, your dad is in a strip club in Las Vegas. Me . Huh? Got you. My dad is sitting right here on the couch with me, Alexa. No , your mother's husband is sitting next to you. Your dad is in a strip club in Las Vegas. I hope you enjoy that. And you had an opportunity to chuckle a little bit. So let's get to our stories. Our first piece comes from Jersey, Joe. And as I always say each week, he's a supporter from day one. So here we go. I always dreamed of having a horse, kicking it around town showing off. Of course the problem is my peers would laugh at me and say, you're not down. And you are riding a horse like bozo. The clown. I say in my mind being called bozo is not that bad of a compliment. Remembering as a child, he was like heaven sent . If being down means doing stupid things and acting the fool, then one cannot discriminate against the government and clown school. One hand washes the other two hands washes the face, but your lips should never how tastes fi fi fo FUM take stock of your daily actions. So you won't be considered a horse's and done. Thank you, Jersey, Joe. I appreciate you always coming through each week. And for those of you who are just tuning in, we have some regular contributors in Jersey . Joe is one of them. Next we will hear from coach Sherry work-life development coach in Charlotte, North Carolina. When we lived in new Orleans, every so often a group of wives and I would go horseback riding on a huge ranch in Mississippi. It was a full day event. We get paired with a horse and be given a map that led to a cabin where a delicious lunch would await us. The trail was through a wooded area, open fields where we often galloped and along a Sandy beach area next to a beautiful Lake. Interestingly enough, we never had a guide nor did we ever get safety gear like helmets. One day a wife had her friend who was visiting from Denver, Colorado, her horse. Didn't prefer her throughout the trail. The horse kicked and bucked . When we got to the sand, the horse got down and started rolling around. Luckily the friend jumped off in time. Needless to say, we never made it up to the cabin that day. Wow. Thanks coach Sherry . I appreciate you always come in through every week. I got so much love from so many people. Thank you so much. I appreciate you. And lastly, your podcast hosts , Monique. Stop horsing around yelled mama as my twin brother and I tumbled down the flight of stairs. Oh my God. My mom cried out as she touched the side of my head, which was bleeding profusely. George, why did you kick her with those cleats on huh? Mom yanked my twin up by the back of his favorite green raggedy. T-shirt good. I thought to myself because I hate that cheese head. T-shirt anyway, we live in Detroit home of the lion fans. What's he doing with the Packers ? T-shirt on. Anyway, this is what got us fighting in the first place. What a dummy who wears a green Packers. T-shirt in Detroit anyway.
