Well, I just saw it all when the band came to Whitesburg a few weeks ago playing all of that music in the restaurant. Low and behold, there was Miss Camouflage in her white, camouflage jeans trying to dance. But she is still on the old side. If she had just had her some choppers to go with her camouflage jeans, that would have been awesome. People are out looking and watching how other people act. If I was her I would think before I got up on stage and tried to dance. Her dancing style doesn’t get it done these days. You have to kind of move with the flow and she just didn’t have it. I hate to hurt her feelings, but that is just the way it is.

(Are you the fun police?)

.

Caution. Beware. My dog is bigger than your dog. Does it make you mad that I am always right? This is the Midnight Phantom and I approve this message.

.

To a certain woman: You’ve got to live the rest of your life with the name you have made for yourself. The best part is that your ex-husband doesn’t.

.

It’s a shame the way a certain person is trying to do by making smart remarks and things like that. Buddy, if I were you I would be awfully careful. One of these days you will pay for what you say. I still don’t understand why the sheriff hasn’t closed this poker house down. It needs to be closed.

.

The singer John Prine must have been lying back in the Seventies when he sang about western Kentucky and said ‘Mr. Peabody’s coal train has hauled it away.’ If Mr. Peabody had hauled it all away, those western Kentucky counties wouldn’t be putting us eastern Kentucky miners out of our jobs. Shame on you, John Prine.

.

I was at a bar the other night and a certain public official was there and he was drunk. He fell and almost broke his arm. The police came and got him and took him home. I want to know why he wasn’t put in jail. If it had been me they would have put me in jail. That’s what I’ve got to say. I’m sure you won’t put this in Speak Your Piece, but you need to put it in.

.

This is a comment about four wheelers. I am old enough that I remember when people rode horses and old people would complain that we rode horses too fast. Does everyone realize the taxes, upkeep and everything else with those four wheelers that Letcher County is getting?

.

To a certain person: I still love you, even if Jesus and God don’t.

.

Cat killer, I have sat around up here for years and watched my neighbors’ cats crawl on my car. The cats get in my house when I am gone and just make an absolute mess of everything. So I decided to take your advice and I walked out in the yard and I shot three of their cats. You have brought new meaning to my life and I just wanted to thank you.

.

This message is to Millstone Methodist Church: If you would stop running people off you wouldn’t have to resort to Speak Your Piece to try to get people to come to church.

.

My family isn’t worth a hill of buggy beans. I’ve got two brothers and neither one of them is worth a nickel. I’ve got two sisters. Neither of them is worth a hoot. All my brothers think about is their crazy women. My so-called sisters just think about themselves.

.

It’s a shame that you have no trespassing signs up and people just come right over them and keep your driveway blocked. I’m going to have to start calling the sheriff and let him bring his wrecker and tow them in. That is the only thing I know to do.

.

There is a human being that lives on Indian Creek. I didn’t know any human beings lived on Indian Creek. He must have come from the circus.

.

This is the old cat killer. I didn’t get that big yellow cat, but the season has been successful for a lot of us. The month of May is over, but it has been so successful that I think that we will open it again in November. Until November neighbors, don’t shoot anything out of season. But when it gets here, give them hell.

.

It’s bad when it gets to the point that you can’t trust anyone, not even socalled friends. They will steal you blind if they get half a chance. Please don’t trust anybody.

.

This is the sneaky little bird that hates drugs responding to the person who commented in Speak Your Piece wanting to know my name: Maybe it’s Robin. Maybe it’s Kathy. Maybe it’s Tweet Tweet. I know everything that happens down there in that bottom. You constantly stick your nose in other people business. Your boys fight constantly. You have the cops down here in the bottom almost everyday because you just fight. And you are still selling drugs. You got a brand new telephone so now you can use your new phone to call for the drugs. Keep your nose out of a certain woman’s business in jail. Keep from calling the lawyers and judges. All you are doing is causing problems.

.

A certain person on Smoot Creek gets her water turned back on so my mom won’t have to wash and dry her clothes. Now every time you pass a certain trailer there are different vehicles parked there. One certain vehicle stops there 25 times a day. They know who they are.

.

Matthew 7:15 begins with ‘beware of false prophets.’ Chapter 16 says ‘you shall know them by their fruit.’ Chapter 21 says ‘not everyone who says unto me Lord, Lord shall enter into the kingdom of heaven.’ This is to the church on Madison Avenue: Did you help my children? Did you feed them? Did you help get them shelter, clothing, safety and love that they need? Chapter 23 says ‘and then I profess unto them. I never knew you. Depart from me thee that work in equity.’ Is your reward in heaven or is it here on earth?

.

This is to the people who get on Facebook to hunt a man. I would be ashamed if that was the only way I had to get one. That is telling people that you can’t get a man just by who you are.

.

I guess the truth does hurt, but you will face it one day.

.

A certain person’s sister asked to borrow a vehicle and he told her the transmission was going out. I would be ashamed. If I had a sister who was good to me and if she wanted to use one of my vehicles I would throw her the keys and say ‘Go ahead, Sis, take it.’ I just don’t understand it. I do understand that you like to flap your jaws.

.

What do you think about a big holier- than- thou evangelist from Letcher County forging a $1,280 check in his wife’s name who is on her death bed? I can’t wait until the grand jury gets hold of this.

.

Low and behold, if anything happens to one of my vehicles I will know exactly where to go and who did it.

.

The late president Reagan would probably say here we go again. We have selected one of our own as the new superintendent of the Letcher County school system. He has a wealth of experience, but it is all in Letcher County. I guess we can say again that our world-view of education ends at the county line. But you know that it is a little progress. At least it doesn’t end at the Neon city limits.

.

To the citizens of Jenkins and all of Letcher County, Pike County and Wise County, Va.: Please go by the Jenkins City Hall, the Jenkins Library or Boggs Pharmacy and sign the petition calling for the reopening of the Jenkins Community Hospital. Anyone may get in need of emergency care at any time and we have a major highway bypass going through Jenkins. There are many accidents there. We need our hospital back to preserve the golden hour of life. Please help reopen our hospital. You or someone you love may need it one day.

.

To the woman with the best friend: What is there to forgive except the lies that he has told you because he is a womanizer? Nobody is sick, except your friend. He is sick in the head. If you want the truth, call who you think is your enemy.

.

The IRS is trying to bridge the big oil companies’ right to give money to Tea Party and take it off their income tax. It’s just a tax deduction. It’s not the Tea Party’s issue. It’s whether the big companies have to pay taxes on what they give to political parties.

.

To the cowardly slut who keeps wanting to go out with a married man: You might as well print his initials so his sickly little wife will know who you are talking about.

.

Our deepest sympathy goes out to Esther Huff ’s family, who just recently passed away. We know what that feels like. Moving right along to other matters, happy 13th anniversary to Lisa Fields, our sister, and Frank, our brother-in-law on Wednesday, June 12. Also, happy birthday to Erma McIntosh, Orville Fields, Bald Mountain, Dennis Fields, their brother, Randy Hollow. This is it for the month of June thus far. Please print this. Thank you, Stanley Pack.
