send in the Z team

Recommended Posts

nobody knew where the Z team members came from. just from everywhere, all over, it was said.

lot of people think they came from a different planet, some planet that started with the letter Z, or planet's name that started with a letter that made the Z sound.

they were mythic problem solvers. they were part of the grand fabric, always were here, some old timers would say. my mom was Z, and so too was my uncle bill, 

they came from India proper, the cradle. oh no, it was not India, and it was not Europe, they were here in the beginning. they are from here, have been here all this time.

they black guy who ran this barber shop that was quite profitable was old, he'd been around a long long time. he ran that barbershop of his back in the 1940's, and

he stood there in his way, now being over an hundred years of age, and said, nope. they were here before anyone.

they were here from Africa, they were here from America, they were here, originals, original thinkers, like the Egyptians, they were here, they were here like, the Chinese, 

they were here, like the Alaskan, the Navajo, they were the neolithic, the Pre-columbian, the Inca.

 

but what does any of that matter, now they are here.

 

yes they are. 

and it's time for the Z team to roll!

 

Peace!

they were here, like the Alaskan, the Navajo, they were the neolithic, the Pre-columbian, the Inca.

 

but what does any of that matter, now they are here.

I just remember when I was a kid in the early 1960's at a family picnic, the old Victorian Style House in Detroit, I was maybe 5. They guy who owned the house, his family came from Poland. 

He grew up not too far from Pittsburgh, PA. He found his dad on the couch dead when he was a young boy, dead from black lung. 

Anyway, he grew up and transplanted himself and his brothers and his mom to Detroit. He should have been a major league baseball player because he had an unbelievable throwing arm. 

Instead, at the last minute, due to his mom, he went into the priesthood. But he got really sick one day in the seminary, and ended up in the hospital. When he woke up he met his wife, a nurse.

as luck would have it, he was brilliant at math. He decided to start his own pluming business which was successful. at the time of that picnic, when I was just a kid, I remember feeling sad when my hotdog fell onto the ground. He picked it up, put it back onto the grill, and then wrapped another one all special, in a couple of strips of bacon. it was the best hotdog I have ever had.

Later in the 1970's his business went broke. So he went and lived in Saudi Arabia for 5 long years making a lot of money. He came back and restarted his business. He was, as I said, brilliant. 

He raised 9 kids, they all worked the family business that gave a damn about people. They would fix your water heater even if you could not pay. he was part of the Z team.

 

the people who get things done. he died of pancreatic cancer. he, his name was Larry, had big mitts, or hands if you will. he was not thought to be a conservative nor a liberal. he was there during the race riots in 1967. they stuck it out in that old Victorian house where at one time the city streets were wide. they never gave up. 

 

 

 

yes they are, of good stock. I remember people who actually came from India, they were, they thought, American's first. they were people. if you knew what people wanted, people whose families came from Africa, and eventually all they wanted was half a chance, and they made it, somehow they did, you would understand only a part of their sacrifice.

and it's time for the Z team to roll!

 

It is long past time for the Z time. 

 

the Z party.  a casual onlooker would possibly say.

 

Peace!

No holds barred chat

  • Hey kfools.. does this help? 


  • By Vegas

    Liberals are going to hell.


  • grgle



  • Where’s at @slideman?


  • Hola


  • I know this one, this new chat thing. I've seen it called the "shoutbox" among other things in my past. Very hard to hide from the chat box. The question is asked, there's no time to go search what other folks think, this is real time. Only seconds should be between chat box replies. This one is made for me. In the chat box one has to be quick on their feet with stuff at the ready. This chat box is the worst nightmare of anyone trying to deal with ol' teach. 


  • By pmurT

    hey @teacher that sounds like too much work for me LOL I need that useless thing called *time* in order to authenticate facts and truths which get posted by deceitful Dems


  • What does the red number refer to? currently, on my screen it says 2

     


  • Where does it say 2?


  • So. In the chat....if you tag a member the text afterwards should be a private message. 


  • How do? I'm teacher. If I'm online and the powers that be can figure out how to make it immediately apparent to me that whatever I've said here has been replied to I'm gonna show up right quick and kick some teeth in. It's the chat box, all this is new and scary. I know this gig. This starts now. 



  • Hey kfools, did you lose your securtiy cert? On my browser it is saying your site is not secure?


  • Mine too. I'm looking into it.


  • Mine too. 


  • I thought it was my location.. 


  • Just gave to renew the security cert. No big deal I'll do it tonight


  • OK thanks

     



  • Happy Anniversary, America... on your Civil Union.

    Scroll the other way for a while and you'll see me saying that these days the chat box ain't gonna work as one has to be quick on one's feet. The question is posed, there ain't no stinkin time for ya'll to refer to your betters for the answer, ya'll don't understand these things, this political debate, ya'll don't have the answer at hand, ya'll haven't thought this through, ya'll ain't ready for the next question I'll ask,  ya'll can't handle the pace that a bloke such as I can bring it in the chat box, ya'll can't handle this format.

     

    This one is made for me.
