Depression & good ole friends. By Mr. Daddy

Such a chronic waste of time, but something that for one reason or another sneaks up on all of us occasionally I'm willing to bet.

Now there are all sorts and stages of depression I am told. Not a single one of them funny.

You know how sometimes a good friend just knows when you are troubled.

Well thank God for good friends. Cause I have been a little troubled lately, and for some reason just couldn't put my finger on it, so it was with a certain amount of relief and gladness of heart that I opened up an e-mail the other day to read this.

WHY I'M DEPRESSED ...........................................

"Over five thousand years ago, Moses said to the children of Israel,
"Pick up your shovels, mount your asses and camels, and I will lead
you to the Promised Land."

Nearly 75 years ago, (when Welfare was introduced) Roosevelt said,
"Lay down your shovels, sit on your asses, and light up a Camel, this
is the Promised Land."

Today, the government has stolen your shovel, taxed your asses, raised
the price of Camels and mortgaged the Promised Land to China !

I was so depressed last night thinking about my retirement, the economy, the
wars, lost jobs, etc . that I called a Suicide Hotline.

I had to press 1 for English.

I was then connected to a call center in Pakistan . I told them I was suicidal.

They got excited and asked if I could drive a truck......"

I got all teary eyed, and that warm and fuzzy feeling you get when thinking about good ole friends....

Then it dawned on me.... I have a commercial drivers license....

I'm beginning to wonder what good ole Abu was trying to tell me????????
