A Story Of a Farmer The Son And The Elderly Grandfather

      When an old man died in the geriatric ward of a nursing home in an Australian country town, it was believed that he had nothing left of any value.Later, when the nurses were going through his meagre possessions, They found this poem. Its quality and content so impressed the staff that copies were made and distributed to every nurse in the hospital.One nurse took her copy to Melbourne. The old man’s sole bequest to posterity has since appeared in the Christmas editions of magazines around the country and appearing in mags for Mental Health. A slide presentation has also been made based on his simple, but eloquent, poem.And this old man, with nothing left to give to the world, is now the author of this ‘anonymous’ poem winging across the Internet. Cranky Old ManWhat do you see nurses? ……What do you see?What are you thinking .. . when you’re looking at me?A cranky old man, … …not very wise,Uncertain of habit .… … . .. with faraway eyes?Who dribbles his food .. . … . . and makes no reply.When you say in a loud voice . .’I do wish you’d try!’Who seems not to notice …the things that you do.And forever is losing … …… A sock or shoe?Who, resisting or not … … lets you do as you will,With bathing and feeding … .The long day to fill?Is that what you’re thinking?. .Is that what you see?Then open your eyes, nurse .you’re not looking at me.I’ll tell you who I am … . .. As I sit here so still,As I do at your bidding, .… . as I eat at your will.I’m a small child of Ten . .with a father and mother,Brothers and sisters .… .. . who love one anotherA young boy of Sixteen … .. with wings on his feetDreaming that soon now …… a lover he’ll meet.A groom soon at Twenty … ..my heart gives a leap.Remembering, the vows .. .. .that I promised to keep.At Twenty-Five, now … . .I have young of my own.Who need me to guide … And a secure happy home.A man of Thirty . .… . . My young now grown fast,Bound to each other …. With ties that should last.At Forty, my young sons .. .have grown and are gone,But my woman is beside me . . to see I don’t mourn.At Fifty, once more, .. …Babies play ‘round my knee,Again, we know children … . My loved one and me.Dark days are upon me … . My wife is now dead.I look at the future … … . I shudder with dread.For my young are all rearing .… young of their own.And I think of the years … And the love that I’ve known.I’m now an old man … … .. and nature is cruel.It’s jest to make old age … … . look like a fool.The body, it crumbles .. .. . grace and vigour, depart.There is now a stone … where I once had a heart.But inside this old carcass . A young man still dwells,And now and again … . . my battered heart swellsI remember the joys … . .. . I remember the pain.And I’m loving and living … … . life over again.I think of the years, all too few …. gone too fast.And accept the stark fact … that nothing can last.So open your eyes, people .… . .… open and see.Not a cranky old man .Look closer … . see .. .…. …. . ME!!Remember this poem when you next meet an older person who you might brush aside without looking at the young soul within. We will all, one day, be there, too!PLEASE SHARE THIS POEM!The best and most beautiful things of this world can’t be seen or touched. They must be felt by the heart!Very Respectfully,Scott Sonnon www.breathinggift.com (My free book and video gift to you.)              As the saying goes what goes around comes around , I haven’t been treated in competitive eating as well as I’d have wished I should have been , yes I had my share of publicity and the limelight , but I had more of my share of injustices in my time to zero out whatever bones were thrown my way.
I want to let everyone know that thou I received the lifetime achievement award , I fell that my presence in competitive eating is being discounted and I leave the sport treated like a piece of crap.

So i would like to remind all the eaters how I get treated a major figure in the sport as I exit the ce table will have a direct effect on all of you…and now I’d like to tell you this tale of a farmer his young song and the elderly grandfather who worked a farm. one day the elderly grandfather became to ill to work and the father then tells his son , that on my farm if you don’t work you don’t eat and so put grandpa in the barn to starve to death . as the young son walks the elderly grandpa away the father shouts back , I want him to starve to death but not freeze to death so here’s a blanket to wrap around him so that he may be warm …a few minutes pass and the young son returns with half a blanket the Father says . whats this , the Young son says I ‘m saving half for you someday , Well George will save half a blanket for the Joey Chestnuts when they cease to be as productive as in their prime ..end

hardy       The promise was implied that our images would be on the wall of Fame for ever, then we was told that we no longer have any fame, does that formula apply to Babe Ruth or Joe De Magio? or just to us  we paved the road  , set the table for the new eaters, in time they to will be told that they no longer have Fame and will be erased from the wall, how  sad, I gave my blood . my sweat . and my tears  for this contest , only to be  robbed of my 2001 3rd place  trophy..read on
        FROM THE    TIME I STARTED PREPARING TO ENTER  AND COMPETE  IN THE NATHANS QUALIFIER , FROM A TIME SPAN OF MARCH 2001  TO JULY 3RD 2001  I ATE NOTHING BUT 5 – 17 HOT DOGS   AND BUNS A DAY AND WOULD PUT DOWN 20 PLUS AT THE END OF THE  WEEK JUST TO SEE  WHAT I CAN  DO , AS MY SOLE MEAL OF THE DAY.
LIKE I SAID JUST 1 MEAL A DAY CONSISTING OF HOT DOGS AND BUNS AND  THEN I WOULD BE DONE EATING FOR THE DAY.  THIS WAS DEDICATION , THIS WAS DETERMINATION , THIS WAS MOTIVATION,. I KNEW THAT I COULDN’T CATCH KAZUTOYO “THE RABBIT” ARAI WITHHIS 26 HOT DOGS  AND BUNS OR THE 2ND PLACE FINISHER MISAO “THE BIG BANANA” FUJITA   WITH HER 24,MY GOAL WAS TO HIT 3RD PLACE,
       I WON THE BELMONT QUALIFIER  WITH 17 HDB’S EAR LY ON  IN THE SEASON, I HEARD THAT ERIC BOOKER ATE 26 HDB’S AT THE DUCKS BALL PARK , I HAD MY WORK CUT OUT FOR ME.
      DURING THE ACTUAL 4TH OF JULY CONTEST. THE FIRST 8 HOT DOGS I THINK THAT I KEPT UP  WITH KOBAYASHI .LIKE I ALWAYS SAY IN THE FIRST MINUTE OF ANY CONTEST ALL EYES WILL BE ON ME  AS THE FASTEST HANDS IN COMPETITIVE EATING, NOBODY IS CLOSE TO ME IN THE FIRST MINUTE. KOBY WAS FAST HE SURPRISED ME AND EVERYONE . MOST EATERS WERE DISILLUSIONED FROM CONTINUING  WHEN THE ANNOUNCER CALLED OUT THAT KOBY IS UP TO 40 HDB’S AND  THEY EITHER QUIT COLD OR SLOWED DOWN TO A SNAILS PACE AS THEY FELT IT WAS FUTILE TO CONTINUE FOR  NAUGHT. HOWEVER I WAS ONLY TRYING TO CATCH 3RD PLACE SO I PUSHED ON. I WAS IN A ZONE . I REMEMBER MY NEPHEW YELLING FROM THE SIDELINES IN THE CROWD , WHEN KOBY HIT 45 DOGGS TO KEEP GOING , HE’S BOUND TO THROW IT UP . I PERSEVERED  ON.
 AS THE FINAL BELL  SOUNDED  I HIT THE DEUCE ! THE BIG 20 . I FOLLOWED THE JUDGE IN FRONT OF ME WITH HIS TALLY CARDS EVERY STEP OF THE WAY  AS ALL THE EATERS DID. I TOOK THE 20 TALLY CARD  AND HELD IT UP FOR ALL TO SEE, WOW 20 ! THE DUECE.
I KNEW KOBY WON AND ARIA GOT 2ND WITH 31 BUT WHAT ABOUT  BOOKER , WHAT DID HE DO AFTER ALL HE HIT 26 IN The DUCKS FOR AN AMERICAN RECORD . SYLVIA CARTER  A REPORTER WHO DID A STORY ON ME , WAS ON STAGE , I ASKED Her WHAT DID BOOKER DO? SHE SAID 19 1/2. HALLELUJAH I SAID I BEAT BOOKER. NOW I MAKE MY WAY TO CHARLES HARDY. I GO RIGHT OVER TO HIM AND SAY CHARLES , HOW MANY DID Y YOU EAT . HE SHRUGS HIS SHOULDERS AS IF HE DOESN’T KNOW  I THEN WALKED WITH HIM  OFF STAGE  WHERE HIS FAMILY WAS I SAID AGAIN , HOW MANY HE SHRUGED HIS SHOULDER  AGAIN . I SAY TO MYSELF I GOT THIRD! BECAUSE LET ME TELL YOU WHEN  EATING THE DOGS IN THE CONTEST , THERE IS ONE THING THAT EVERY EATER IS CERTAIN  AND THAT’S THE TALLY CARDS IN FRONT OF THEM.
      THE NEXT THING I  SEE IS THE REWARDING THE TROPHY’S AND IT WAS DONE  QUIETLY WITHOUT MUCH FANFARE AND HARDY IS GETTING THE 3RD PLACE TROPHY. I WAS SURPRISED . LATER THAT DAY SEVERAL EATERS  TOLD ME THAT HE PUKED IT UP, RIGHT AFTER THE CONTEST. I AS SOME OTHER EATERS QUESTION WEATHER HE ACTUALLY L HIT THE DEUCE. . I KNEW EXACTLY HOW MANY I ATE . WHY DIDNT HE?
 FOR  AWHILE I WAS GOOD SOLDIER AND SAID I CAN COME BACK NEXT YEAR , BUT AFTER SEEING THE NUMBERS PEOPLE ARE PUTTING UP . I GOT MORE  AN MORE UPSET AS MY CHANCE FOR GLORY HAS GONE .
      IF IT WAS A FRENCH FRY CONTEST THAT JUST POPED UP IN LETS SAY A WEEK OR SO I WOULDN’T BE THAT UPSET ,BUT I ATE HOT DOGS FROM MARCH TO JULY EVERYDAY AS MY SOLE MEAL AND IT HURT.

Georgia Davis weighed 60 stone, or 840 pounds, when emergency workers cut her out of her UK home, using scaffolding to lower her to the ground floor to go to the doctor.
LONDON — Emergency workers who needed to take an obese teenager from her home to a hospital in Wales had to break through a wall of the residence to get her out and into an ambulance, officials said Friday.
The rescue on the second floor of the small house on Thursday used scaffolding as a ramp to lower the woman to the ground level, the local Rhondda Cynon Taf council said.
The unidentified 19-year-old remained hospitalized Friday and her medical condition was not released.
Neighbors said her weight had risen as high as 380 kilos (835 pounds).
The U.K. has one of Europe’s fattest populations: more than 60 percent of adults and one third of children aged 10-11 are overweight or obese, roughly similar to U.S. statistics.

reality show about the Carnegie Deli

 

ABOUT THE SHOW

FAMILY PICKLE IS THE NEW INTERGENERATIONAL FAMILY REALITY SERIES THAT’S AS FAST AND FRENETIC AS THE BIG APPLE ITSELF.

Marian and Sandy Levine are a boisterous boomer couple running the world famous Carnegie Deli on the corner of 55th and 7th. Marian inherited the delicatessen dynasty her late father built, and her husband Sandy then took the reins of this Manhattan institution.

Thankfully, Marian and Sandy are made for each other, matched in bluster and drive—not to mention decibel levels. Now they’re peddling pickles and slinging sandwiches, all the while dealing with two adult children who challenge their choices… and can’t be fired.

The first family of New York’s Carnegie Deli is trying to keep a tradition alive with equal parts love, laughter and loudness.

Deliriously satisfying, furiously funny and overstuffed as one of their signature sandwiches, Family Pickle is addictive television
