I just have to show you the third video

Recently I shared two videos regarding an airline’s dilemma with a passenger who had the misfortune of having his guitar broken by the airline’s baggage handlers. I found a third video, and felt that I should, in the interest of full disclosure, post the third video as well. Don’t want to keep you hanging and guessing!

The infamous broken guitar videos

A short while ago I wrote a post about taking musical instruments on airplanes, and shared a YouTube video about a guy who had his Taylor Guitar broken by the baggage handlers of an airline when he was taking a trip. I don’t know if the broken guitar was one of the taylor acoustic guitars or a different taylor guitar, but the first video does say it was a taylor guitar.

He has produced several videos about the ordeal, and I think they are all great! I know that the airline company has finally seen the light and has come to an agreement to resolve the matter. I think that’s great! I’ve had airline troubles in the past too, and I have great empathy for this type of situation. Here is the second video in the series:

Remember what Wilma and Betty would say?

When Wilma and Betty of The Flintstones would go shopping, they would say “Charge it!” Do you remember that?  I loved watching that show. Well when I go shopping, I say ‘Internet!!’ If I’m looking for hedge trimmers, I know where to start my search. It’s always the same place because not only do I find what I’m looking for, but I also get a lot of advice about it too. Then there’s always a need for home accessories. I love decorating my home. I find the neatest things on the Internet.

Lately I’ve been looking for housewares and home maintenance items. You know before you know it winter will be here and there’s always some type of home maintenance that needs to be tackled.  But the one thing I love shopping online for is furniture. I’m taking one room at a time and looking for just the right table, chair, or accent table for that room. I do love online shopping.  Sometimes it’s just ‘window shopping’ but that’s okay too.

Jokes that can be told in church

I thought you might like a laugh or two.

Attending a wedding for the first time, a little girl whispered to her mother, “Why is the bride dressed in white?”

The mother replied, “Because white is the color of happiness, and today is the happiest day of her life.”

The child thought about this for a moment then said, “So why is the groom wearing black?”


A little girl, dressed in her Sunday best, was running as fast as she could, trying not to be late for Bible class. As she ran she prayed, “Dear Lord, please don’t let me be late! Dear Lord, please don’t let me be late!”

While she was running and praying, she tripped on a curb and fell, getting her clothes dirty and tearing her dress. She got up, brushed herself off, and started running again!

As she ran she once again began to pray, “Dear Lord, please don’t let me be late…but please don’t shove me either!”


Three boys are in the school yard bragging about their fathers.

The first boy says,”My Dad scribbles a few words on a piece of paper, he calls it a poem,they give him $50.”

The second boy says, “That’s nothing. My Dad scribbles a few words on piece of paper, he calls it a song, they give him $100.”

The third boy says, “I got you both beat. My Dad scribbles a few words on a piece of paper, he calls it a sermon, and it takes eight people to collect all the money!”

Carry it on if you can

When I heard that Jim was planning to fly down here to perform in a special concert and that he was bringing his classic contrabassoon on the airplane I was really concerned that his instrument might get lost or damaged. After all, airlines have a pretty bad reputation (thanks to some YouTube videos about a guitar being destroyed by a certain airline) for the way they handle musical instruments. I don’t know if he can carry it on or not, but I sure hope that he gets it here safely – that is one expensive piece of equipment to trust to the baggage handlers at an airline!
