The Picture of Contentment



Who is she? A satisfied Republican following last week's route of the electoral opposition? A smug Packers fan after last night's gridiron trashing of their arch rivals, da Chicago Bears?

Neither of the above. It's beautiful wife Sandy taking a break during a retreat titled "Your Life Unplugged" at Yarrow Golf and Conference Center. Yarrow is one of Michigan's most scenic and elegant spots, a great place to spend a few days gaining inspiration and developing a feeling of satisfaction.

Son Lee's fiancée, Karen Vogelmann, made most of the arrangements for the retreat. It was a major task, but it paid off . Some 25 ladies loved it, judging from post-meeting comments. The event was so successful that plans immediately went into effect for a repeat next year.

This photo by one of her new-found friends suggests Sandy will return to Yarrow in 2015.

Just last night my own beautiful wife turned to me, in connection with some little household task, and said, "I'll do it, you just relax." I replied, wistfully: "but honey, you know I don't know HOW to relax." We agreed this was true! But I took the opportunity to practice relaxing for about 30 minutes.

We all need to recharge - this looks like one great way.

I am an American man, and I have decided to boycott American women. In a nutshell, American women are the most likely to cheat on you, to divorce you, to get fat, to steal half of your money in the divorce courts, don’t know how to cook or clean, don’t want to have children, etc. Therefore, what intelligent man would want to get involved with American women?

American women are generally immature, selfish, extremely arrogant and self-centered, mentally unstable, irresponsible, and highly unchaste. The behavior of most American women is utterly disgusting, to say the least.

This blog is my attempt to explain why I feel American women are inferior to foreign women (non-American women), and why American men should boycott American women, and date/marry only foreign (non-American) women.

BOYCOTT AMERICAN WOMEN!

The previous comment is allowed to stand purely in the interest of free speech. Some say I have a touch of intelligence, and I have long been involved with a wonderful American woman. So count me as one who disagrees with everything "Anonymous" says, and I'm sure there are millions of others.

Anonymous should have sat in on the retreat. He would have found a whole room of women completely opposite of what he described!
