Can you take a joke?
If not, well…
That’s part of the side of Ricky Johnson, Jr. that doesn’t get the notice it should. Much like his storied racketeering career. #IDLP. Most of the time during our talks it’s the lol emoji in use. Can’t explain it or share it. It is what it is. Funny. Funny stuff, man.
So, that’s what led to today’s #JulesRules edition. A terrific Tuesday to be alive and fortunate in this great world around us just to be able breathe freely. So, hope you enjoy the #TwoFerns edition.
*EdNote: This is how the exchange began.
Yes I have written several things that were not smart. Bad checks being one. I have to admit that in my past I used to get on Facebook when I would be under the influence and I wrote some pretty ignorant things. I actually spent a few hours about a year ago and deleted all of these posts from my old life. It was pretty embarrassing to think that is how I used to speak or act. I write things on Facebook out of emotion sometime and I have to catch myself before I share it. I have to be careful with that a lot.
#5 I see a lot of young pictures where you had hair, what’s it like being bald at 30
I don’t mind being bald. I always had thick hair until I enlisted in the Marine Corps. I could tell I was starting to get thin up top when I was around 27. I shaved my head completely when I was 32. I try to embrace what most people see as a flaw or something that is feared. There is no changing being bald so this is who I am.
#6 I know you like tour time on Facebook. Who is your hero here; in others words; who do you Like the most.
You see so much garbage and phony people on Facebook so I tend to venture toward the people who speak truth without fear. I follow a guy named Amiri King. He speaks truth on every level without discriminating. He catches a lot of hell because he is guns blazing but I respect him. He stands on what he says.
Ah man I am half full all of the time. I refuse to dive off into things never being enough or “poor me.” I never forget where I was at and I understand there are people who have it a lot worse than me and I am in a good situation. I always tell people about the life my wife and I share, “we don’t make magic but we make due. If I looked at everything being half empty, that is what would consume me. I would never have an appreciation for what is in front of me.”
Well considering Coach Steve Stokes’s current situation, I would have to say Coach James Hodges. James has the advantage because he already has red hair.
**EdNote: Coach Stokes was involved in a serious cycling accident over the weekend. He is home and resting and recovering. Our prayers are with Coach Stokes.
Ricky Johnson is leading the Life of Leisure at Lake of the Ozark with his wife, Julie, and their Mutt Mick.
