The Emperor Gets "All Hails"
It has been a long dry spell for Readers of the Holabird Advocate. They have waited hoping to see the Hinkle Empire rise again. Our little Newsblog is doing fine. We are, like the proverbial newspaper, black and white and read all over. The Hinkle Empire is in good shape as well, as the map is red all over.Our Publisher is gaining kudos for being back with the Holabird Advocate. As Ken and Joan Hansen report"...we always enjoy your ramblings….and have missed them." Our Publisher needs to look up the word "Ramblings" in his Webster's 9th Collegiate that he got for his high school graduation, but it came up missing. He seems to recall Hank Williams was a "Rambling Man" but he died at age 29 from too much wild living, which is not a good description of anything going on in the home office.
Jerry Hinkle gets to see the pink t-shirt on the 4th of July. A lot of praise has been lavished on him for participating in that as well. But as anyone can tell you, Jerry will do whatever he can to fight the War on Cancer. Fighting other people's cancer is what he does best!

I am sending you a youtube sight so you can view what Jauhn Hinkle is up to
This is very funny and if it reaches over 1000 hits or something like that they will get some sort of prize money. They will in turn use the money for a young woman teacher that has brain cancer. For Holabird Advocate Readers that have never met Jauhn, in this video, he plays the part of Mr. Hinkle!
A young fellow had just gotten his Driver's Permit. He asked his father if they could discuss his use of the car. His father said he'd make a deal with his son.'You bring your grades up from a C to a B average, study your Bible a little, get your hair cut and we'll talk about the car.'The son thought about that for a moment, decided he'd settle for the offer, and they agreed on it. After about six weeks his father said, 'Son, I've been real proud. You brought your grades up and I've observed that you have been studying your Bible, but I'm real disappointed that you didn't get your hair cut.'The young man paused a moment, then said: 'You know, Dad, I've been thinking about that, and I've noticed in my studies of the Bible that Samson had long hair, John the Baptist had long hair, Moses had long Hair, and there's even a strong argument that Jesus had long hair.'To this his father replied,
'Did you also notice that they all walked everywhere they went?
North of 40:I'm king of the world

Iknow that in the early stages of child development, they go through a phase when they believe they are the center of the universe. As a parent, it is your job to alter that misconception by trying to convince them to be mindful of others, mainly to be mindful you. It happened to us. Through the experiences of growing up and having teachers and friends and bosses, we all became convinced that we are not the center of our universe. I think this is a mistake. This may be a good policy short term, but in the long run, like when you get to be my age, it's really important to be the focus of your own life. Otherwise, you run the risk of making a 27-year-old Hooters waitress the center of your universe and that will only lead to disappointment as you fall short in oh so many areas. But when you're the one who sets the standard for your universe, you're like a chapter from the Goldilocks story -- everyone different than you is either too young or too old or too big or too small, whereas you are just right. So be the center of your universe. Make all of your decisions based on how it affects you. Live everyday as if you are the Intergalactic Emperor. But don't tell anyone. Especially your wife.
