   Safetydude posted on Jokes  Ok,

So this elderly couple are on a world tour and are in St.Petersburg, Russia.
Their assigned 'Inturist' guide is driving them around the city when it starts to sleet.
“Oh look” cries the lady, “it's snowing”.
“Nyet” answers the guide, “tat be rain”.
“No” she responds, “in Iowa, where we're from, that's called snow".
This time the guide is very emphatic “tat is RAIN !”
The husband gets a little nervous and tells his wife to cool it; they're in Russia, after all, and (drum roll )

“Rudolph the Red knows rain, dear”.

   Safetydude posted on Music  I don't know if there are any Country Music fans out there, but Country Hall Of Fame member Me Me Me Mel Tillis died this week at 85.
One song of his songs I remember from a long time ago is "Lying Time Again".

RIP Mel.

   Safetydude posted on Jokes  Ok, So this AF pilot had a serious in-flight mishap and had to bail out of his jet.
He hit the ground badly and much later woke up in a hospital bed. As he was coming around a pretty, young nurse came to his bedside and, in a soft voice, said "you may not feel anything below the waist".
After a while, in hoarse voice, he whispered back, "can I just feel your ti*s"?

Go Air Force!

   Safetydude posted on Jokes  Ok, so these three women walk into a bar and sit down.
"What will it be, ladies"?
The first one, a red-head, says "I'll have a CB",
"Ok", says the bartender, "one cold beer coming up".
"And you"? he asks the second lady, a brunette.
"An RW".
"Ok, a glass of red wine, for you".
Then he turns to the third woman, a blonde, "And for you"?
She thinks for a moment and answers "I'll have a fifteen".
The bartender shakes his head, "a fifteen, what is that"?
"Seven and Seven".

   StormCnter  Then it's probably "Johnny Got His Gun", which I think Trumbo also directed. I don't remember many of the cast, but Donald Sutherland and Timothy Bottoms were in it. From the mid-70s, maybe?

   Safetydude posted on Veterans' Page & Militaria  I went to Lowe's today, for the first time in a long time, and when I produced my ID for the military discount I was told that there is a "new policy" for the discount; 'there must be a copy of your DD 214 on file in the store'.

Now that ain't never gonna happen, good-bye Lowe's.
I shudda' gone to the Depot.

   Safetydude  I've been a Home Depot customer since the company opened its first store in Marietta, GA. and have benefited from their discount policy since they initiated, many years ago. Lowe's followed suit; present your ID for your discount.
Yesterday I was told that Lowe's policy had changed. I don't know if it is for the North Port store only or the chain. I don't care, either way.
I'm not going to give them a copy of DD 214 for any reason.

   Escaped commieny  The Lowes discount card does NOT require a copy of DD214, no Vet would ever do that, it's guarded by all who have one.
Their program is extended to Military families with the card, instead of like me having to show the DH Military ID card.


Lowe’s is an American company that has made it known in the past that they are proud to be a part of this great nation. They have continually shown their support for our military, and now they have made an announcement that will help those in our military as well as their families. The company will be changing their military discount program in order to improve it for those defending our country.

They will be expanding the program to include more members of the military as well as their family members. I think we can all agree that those who put their lives aside to defend our freedom deserve everything they can possibly get.

Lowe’s has explained that they have expanded their online discount to give military members free shipping as well. After seeing all sorts of stories in which members of our military are treated with such disrespect by ungrateful Americans, it is very welcome to see them being catered to. The men and women defending our country deserve a lot more than discounts, but this is a very welcome start.

"That is the kind of thing that we need to start seeing more of as a nation. Liberals have tried to do everything they can to make veterans be the bad guy. But Americans are having none of it. We know that these people deserve all of the respect in the world and that cannot happen unless we start working together as a nation.

My hope for American businesses is that they take a look at how Lowe’s treats our military members and takes notes. It is time for our country to honor the men and women that make our freedom possible."

   GO3  Was unable to go to Lowe's for months. Now that I'm able I will see about the mil discount policy at my store.

   GO3  One other thing. For decades businesses located near military bases/posts complained about competition from BX/PX. As things developed, BX/PX started going to high end items with the result that they promoted the "tax free" benefit versus lower prices. 30 years ago there was a fair chunk of the military population at my post who always went to local stores because lower prices more than offset the tax free aspect. Anyway, once places like HD and Lowe's started their 10 percent discount it was essentially negating the tax free advantage of the exchanges. Since retiring, we've always had good access to exchanges, but the pricing wasn't worth the drive to go there. Also, more stores in our area adopted the military discount addition to HD and Lowe's. To counter this, exchanges have now allowed all honorably discharged veterans eligibility to make online purchases on the exchange website.

   Safetydude  Maybe the dude at the register in the North Port store had his facts confused. I have no need to go back to find out since the HD is a mile away.
