    This is allegedly a true story.

    One of the owners of the place where I work (they are brothers) has a story about how when he was s kid, his parents thought there was something wrong with him.

    He had several counselling sessions and in the final one, the therapist asked him this question:

    Therapist: "You and two others are stranded on an island. It has only one palm tree and a few coconuts, hanging from it. There is a rotten sailboat with no sails and a broken bottom. How do you get off the island?"

    Anthony: "I go down to the dock, hop on the fiberglass speedboat, turn on the engine to warm it up while I cast off the bow and stern lines and the three of us drive to port and are saved."

    Therapist: "Where did you get the speedboat from?"

    Anthony: "Same place you got the island and the palm tree."

    The therapist told his parents "He'll be fine. He just thinks of things differently than other people." I like that kind of can-do attitude. That's exaclty why I like books like "Battlefield Earth" and "Sahara" and movies like "Wag the Dog".

    "This? This is nothing!" Those are words to live by!!!!!

    He was standing in the rubble of an old farmhouse outside Birmingham
    When some on the scene reporter stuck a camera in the face of that old man
    He said "tell the folks please mister, what are you gonna do
    Now that this twister has taken all that's dear to you"
    The old man just smiled and said "boy let me tell you something, this ain't nothing"

    He said I lost my daddy, when I was eight years old,
    That cave-in at the Kincaid mine left a big old hole,
    And I lost my baby brother, my best friend and my left hand
    In a no win situation in a place called Vietnam
    And last year I watched my loving wife, of fifty years waste away and die
    And I held her hand til her heart of gold stopped pumping,
    So this ain't nothin'

    He said I learned at an early age,
    There's things that matter and there's things that don't
    So if you're waiting here for me to cry,
    I hate to disappoint you boy, but I won't
    Then he reached down in the rubble and picked up a photograph
    Wiped the dirt off of it with the hand that he still had
    He put it to his lips and said man she was something
    But this ain't nothin'

    He said I lost my daddy, when I was eight years old,
    That cave-in at the Kincaid mine left a big old hole,
    And I lost my baby brother, my best friend and my left hand
    In a no win situation in a place called Vietnam
    And last year I watched my loving wife, of fifty years waste away and die
    We were holding hands when her heart of gold stopped pumping
    So this ain't nothin'

    This ain't nothin' time won't erase
    And this ain't nothin' money can't replace
    He said you sit and watch your loving wife fifty years fighting for her life
    Then you hold her hand til her heart of gold stops pumping
    Yeah boy that's something,
    So this ain't nothin'
    Yeah this ain't nothin'
