Sunsets in Texas:

Boomer Humor:

There was magician on a cruise ship, and he was really good. 

He was performing the highlight of his show when a short, older gentleman walked onstage and shouted, "I'm a former magician, It's in his sleeve!"

The magician chased the old man off-stage and proceeded.

The next day the magician was performing a new trick again (in front of a smaller audience) when the short, older gentleman walked onstage and declared, "I'm a former magician, It's in his pocket!"

The third day, as he was performing a third trick, he saw the short older gentleman in the crowd. But before the old man could ruin the magic trick, the boat crashed into a rock and sank.

The magician was lucky enough to find a long board to hang on to. On the other end of the long board was the short, older gentleman.  They stared at each other for three full days, neither of them saying anything, when finally the older gentleman said, "I give up, what'd you do with the ship?"

Boomer Philosophy: 

Just two simple questions.  If the federal government deficit don't matter, then why should anyone pay federal taxes?  If the deficits do matter, then why not fix the problem and balance the budget immediately? 

Thank you for your continued interest in our WigJig Newsletter.
