Balancing Act

This is a great photograph from the 1920's showing a man performing his balancing act. Wow, what a good and safe thing to do. I see no risks or dangers at all in this. After all, he had never fallen up to this point, therefore it must be completely safe, and virtually impossible for him to ever fall. Yep, this is day five for me being Mr. Positive. No negativity on this blog. PARTY ON!

  1. A positive attitude may not solve all your problems, but it will annoy enough people to make it worth the effort.

  2. That man would have more fun if he got a friend to put a running chainsaw in each hand. What's he afraid of anyhow? He should think positively!

    Party on!

  5. A battery has a negative and a positive pole. Otherwise non-functional.

    You never made only negative comments.

  6. It's sort of disappointing on how immature you're behaving about this whole situation. Who cares what other people think... last time I checked this was your blog and you could write whatever you want.

    I understand this is going to be probably shot back at me in some way, but people have their own opinions about everything, and unfortunately if something negatively invades invades their way of thinking, they're going to retaliate like children and throw a fit.

    But what do I know, right? I'm just a student,few years shy of being considered an adult in age. What do I know about "grown-up" problems. You don't need to listen. :) But in all seriousness, I do enjoy the blog and I miss the opinions that you gave about the situations. Why? Because they were filled with the rare thing called common sense.

    Have a nice day!

  7. I think this photo is a perfect metaphor for the current state of our economy!!!

    And the guy on the chairs is representative of the average american who is trying to make ends meet or who is over his/her head in debt!!!

  9. That guy is sure making marks on the top of that table; however, if that is his wife's table, he may want to go ahead and fall.

    Maybe we could slow the party down some to where we get a medium party that shows a ray of hope for those of us who still believe in the inate goodness of mankind.

    Party on a little bit.

  12. Al,
    That is about the funniest thing I have read in a long time. If I even set a piece of cardboard on my wife's table she has a fit, so yes, I would be better off falling than brining a marred table home.

    Thanks for the kind words, and hope you will be a regular visitor, poster.
