I almost posted a really bad joke.

My filter hasn't been working too well lately. So some of those thoughts that float around between my ears have actually found their way past my lips or through the keyboard. Once they are pas the lips there is no calling them back. Fortunately the keyboard requires extra steps to those thoughts don't always make into public.

On another note, even with the lack of activity here at the end of this month, we may have a thousand pageviews by 5:00pm local time. We only need seven more.

So I took care of some business

Suldog knows what it's all about, and he's seen the result of my effort.
I do homemade stuff, okay?
Some folks even think I'm creative. We won't tell them that it's because I'm too lazy to leave the house.
I'm so lazy, in fact, that I sometimes don't even print the cards I create. I just turn them into PDFs and email 'em.

Speaking of Suldog, he gave me props for my TCF. I'll grant it is hard to miss. It's just my version of OCCUPY THIS! I suppose I could become passionate about giving holidays their due without interference from other holidays. But for the moment I shall show my support by refraining from naming that most intrusive holiday.

Now I think I shall go crawl back under the rock until the wind quits blowing.

Hey boss

I'm taking a couple of personal days to recharge...

No, I'm not asking.

I'm telling

Trust me. Those were not my exact words when I realized I'd forgotten an important task. I will be making amends immediately.

Ok, I'll admit it

I actually clicked on a link over on another blog to find out who was eliminated from Dancing With Half-naked Women the Stars. I still have no idea who that person is. The name means absolutely nothing to me and I don't care.

Your Parrot's Dead

Rumor has it there is some clicky stuff you can do to enlarge this. Don't ask why I chose to post an image 'cause I don't have an answer... okay?

For some darn reason, which probably has a reasonable explanation, none of the posts I had in the queue made their appearance whilst I was off frolicking in the hinterlands.
So now, dear readers, you know one of my little secrets.

Oh, well!

Fountain of youth

These four older ladies, who lived in Yugoslavia
always sat outside together near the church
and chatted about when they were younger.
One month ago they pooled their money together
And bought a laptop computer.

Never having been, but having heard all about Florida ,
they just happened to click on St. Augustine , FL.
They read about the "Fountain of Youth" claimed by
the Spaniards when they arrived there.
They collected up all the money they had and sent away for four
Bottles of the water from the Fountain of Youth.

As soon as their order arrived, they drank as directed.

The rest of this story will make you a believer, because
here they are today..................

No.......This is TRUE! Really!
Would We lie to you?
We have a limited supply of this water available at
an incredibly low price of just $1,499.95 a bottle.
Seriously ...

Make checks payable to:

Democratic National Committee
(You can trust us, we would NEVER lie to you!)

No comment

This is really one of those feel good stories that just leaves a lump in ya throat..!!

A tough looking group of bikers were riding when they saw a girl about to jump off a bridge so they stopped.

The leader, a big burly man, gets off his bike and says, "What are you doing?" "I'm going to commit suicide," she says.

While he did not want to appear insensitive, he didn't want to miss an opportunity so he asked... "Well, before you jump, why don't you give me a kiss?"

So she does... And it was a long, deep lingering kiss.

After she's finished, the biker says, "Wow! That was the best kiss I have ever had. That's a real talent you are wasting. You could be famous. Why are you committing suicide?"

"My parents don't like me dressing up like a girl......"

I think I earned at least one of these


Once upon a time I was what you might call a frequent visitor to the ol' ballyard. That was back in the day before the Giants shared it with the 'Niners. I remember the adventures fielders had with fly balls, particularly before the outfield end was closed in. Night games were awful. I can't begin to relate how cold it got. Day games were okay... until about 3pm. Then it was as bad as a night game.
Ironically, the 'Niners games don't suffer the same climate conditions the Giants did because of the time of year. I've attended any number of football games, even in December and it has been shirtsleeve weather. I'm not sure that was ever the case when they played at Kezar Stadium.
Back to the Stick- about the funniest thing I ever saw involved Willie McCovey. A pop-foul was hit to the right side and McCovey gave chase. Foul territory was huge so there was lots of room. As Stretch circled under the ball, a fan down in front of us began crying, "He's gonna drop it, he's gonna drop it, ...gonna drop it." Sure enough, he dropped it.
Today, they call being a Giants fan torture. I'm fairly certain it has been that way ever since they came west.

Here's a thought

"Nothing can make you feel ungrateful without your participation."

Not one of mine, of course. But I could own it.

Reporter 1, on the recent changes and mergers newspapers: “Well, we are owned by the second biggest newspaper conglomerate in the country.”
Reporter 2: “Pff. That’s like owning a sack of pennies.”


Editor: “There are so many ways this headline could have gone badly. I’m glad it was just dumb.”


Meteorologist in regards to a county sheriff setting off the tornado sirens: “People need to head to the basement, not Facebook, in these situations.”


Sports editor: “Don’t talk to me about the Red Sox. My kids didn’t know the F-word before last night.”
