1.  LET’S HAVE SOME HALLOWEEN FUN!!!

Hmmm..I didn’t know this is what they meant!!!

d394c9038b10c827c184b42acc7c3600

My wife loved this one…being she’s a zombie fanatic…..

I never realized that Dracula suffered from the same disease as millions of others…..

And now, some “ghostly” humor….

THERAPY TIME!!!

Halloween-Jokes

2.  Speaking of Halloween, I like to go back and remember some of my favorite Halloween costumes that I wore….I do believe that this one was my favorite……”I KNOW YOU ARE…BUT WHAT AM I?”

1451322_10202215817413710_2000659441_n

Our son, Tyler was small when I did this and Mitchell was a baby….Tyler didn’t like Daddy dressing up like this….At first, he didn’t know who I was, so it scared him even more…….

3.  Tired of people stealing your lunch at work?  Tired of people saying that they “didn’t know the food was yours?”  Well, thank to yours truly, you will never have that problem EVER AGAIN…..Check out this lunchbox that everybody needs…..

Organ-Transport-Lunch-Bag

Hopefully people will “have a heart” and stop taking your food…..I don’t think they would have the “stomach” for this….sorry, I’m just “kidneying” around…….

4.  WHAT A MONDAY NIGHT FOOTBALL GAME!!!  It is one of the greatest rivalries in NFL history….My beloved WASHINGTON REDSKINS versus the much despised DALLAS COWBOYS…..DALLAS was a huge favorite in this game….Hardly anybody was picking my Skins to win……I told everybody at work and at church this week, that when these two teams play, you can throw the records out the window…..It took overtime, but my team prevailed…..It featured lots of drama including Cowboy’s quarterback Tony Romo getting hurt and having to leave the game….

104lTO_St_58

130JcU_St_58

Dez Bryant snuck in for a touchdown…..

1dzMU7_St_58

And our “third string” quarterback Colt McCoy raced into the end zone as well…I will tell you this, Colt didn’t look third string last night……

bvuBu_St_58

A couple of things really bothered me last night….First of all, Cowboy’s quarterback Tony Romo came back into the game with like two minutes left in the game……He was actually spotted on the sidelines BEGGING the doctors to let him in….I remember a time when the doctor’s orders STUCK and players LISTENED TO THEM….I have Cowboys fans who are friends of mine, that actually think that this bonehead move killed their chances of winning last night…..

P87xb_St_58

But the one thing that burned my buns more than anything last night was the CONSTANT camera footage of Cowboy’s egomaniac owner Jerry Jones…..They even went as far as to put headphones on him from his booth, so he could talk to the announcers…..I have NEVER EVER seen that done before…..And his being on the sidelines in the third quarter?  RIDICULOUS……Stay up in your suite where you belong!!!  This guy’s ego is actually BIGGER than the state of Texas……

5.  Speaking of football, I cannot wait for this weekend…..My families two weeks of fun comes to an end this weekend, as we head to Minneapolis for some fun……

First of all, this Saturday night, we are going to watch our favorite hockey team, the MINNESOTA WILD take on their arch rivals, the DALLAS STARS….Yes, the team that took the NORTH STARS from MINNESOTA…..And, the fact that they are from Dallas, makes me cheer against them even louder….Of course, I’m not happy with my WILD….They gave up FIVE GOALS in the THIRD PERIOD last night to lose to the New York Rangers….

Minnesota-Wild-vs-Dallas-Stars

And, on Sunday noon, we get to see if my favorite football team can make it THREE in a row….You might see us on TV, because we have seats in the first row center in the end zone…..Watch for me and my boys…I will be wearing my Redskins “half and half” jersey…..

nfl-washington-redskins-2310-griffiniii-split-womens-nike-jersey-4102-36994

vikings-vs-redskins

Then to wrap up our weekend, we get to see the legendary JAMES TAYLOR in concert!!!!  I love the fact that my boys love our music from the 70’s and 80’s…They both even own turntables and are constantly buying ALBUMS….YES, ALBUMS….They are making a big comeback!!!

Singer-James-Taylor-plays-his-favorites-0N1V2TOB-x-large

I will be in “music heaven” when JAMES plays my favorite song of his….

It’s going to be a great weekend…but the best part is being with my wife and boys…..

6.  There are many injustices in our world…And this one is definitely  one of them…..17 years after his untimely death, this musical genius FINALLY got his Hollywood Star….

"US-ENTERTAINMENT-STAR-DENVER"

  THE CRIME?  People like this already have their star….

dd5913e1caa31aa0679ccf716ba7996c

In this society, we make celebrities of the most undeserving people!!!

7.  MOVIE ALERT!!!!  My wife and I saw a great movie the other night….

The Judge New Poster

HOW CAN YOU GO WRONG WITH ROBERT DOWNEY, JR. AND ROBERT DUVALL?  Great story, superb acting…perfect combination….

8.  CAKE ANYONE?  We are in the process of ordering a cake that is 11 inches high, 10 inches wide and weighs 23 pounds!!! an apple pie, pecan pie, chocolate pie, and a pumpkin pie INSIDE of a cake…..

3BB_1620

We figured it out and we will each get TWO POUNDS of cake….CAN YOU SAY STOMACH ACHE?

9.  JOKE OF THE DAY….

A turtle is crossing the road when he’s mugged by two snails. When the police show up, they ask him what happened. The shaken turtle replies, “I don’t know. It all happened so fast.”

HAVE A GREAT WEEK!!!!

RANDOM THOUGHTS FOR TUESDAY OCTOBER 21ST, 2014

HEY, I’M BACK FROM GOOD OLD D.C…..LOTS OF STUFF TO TALK TO YOU ABOUT…..

***by the way, Happy Birthday today to my beautiful Mama…She turns 71 today….LOVE YOU SO MUCH, MOM!!!

Your favorite blog is sponsored by the good folks at PIERSON FORD in ABERDEEN….Wow, I was told over 400 people attended our annual “hunter’s breakfast” this past Saturday morning!!!  That is impressive…..Do you know what else is impressive?  I was only gone for FIVE DAYS and there’s a bunch of different pre owned vehicles on the lot….That just goes to show that our inventory DOES change all the time!!!  I also noticed that a new batch of 2014 FORD F-150’S just came in too…..Not many people have such a great lineup as we have!!!!  To see our incredible lineup, you need to do one of three things…..call us at 1-800-627-1237, stop and see us in the auto plaza, north highway 281 in Aberdeen, right across from Shopko, or see all of our inventory online at http://piersonford.com/

1.  LET’S LIGHTEN THE MOOD WITH SOME JOCULARITY……

Hmmm…so just how dressed up are they at the “other store?”  WOW….I must have missed that person…..

10690167_10152372120718716_6933634382181535188_n

Man, this brings back memories….

10419506_10152502484682987_4132258323426953261_n

Ummm…you had better go back to watch a few episodes of “WILD KINGDOM.”

10246470_640544586067932_6985510754944755318_n

So, is this what I have to look forward to?

10712719_10152721646569589_4139885637767964608_n

FINALLY!!!  a workout created JUST FOR ME!!!!

10590569_10152434715067819_3400992315534473154_n

I knew this was a big deal, but I didn’t know HOW BIG!!!

10626520_279216432288512_7661259713641374303_n

2.  Dear certain airline that we flew on…..I don’t feel it’s necessary to mention your name, because many will figure it out after reading this….I want to know where you get off charging me over $500 dollars per flight, and then adding on an ADDITIONAL $25 PER BAG THAT FLIES UNDERNEATH THE PLANE?  Seriously?  I spend over $1500 to take my kids on a vacation, and YOU have the gall to charge me another $150 dollars for a job that literally takes 2-3 minutes?  This is ridiculous……And, just to let you know…I saw quite a few people standing around scratching their behinds, and not working…..Hmmm…maybe here’s an idea……GET THEM TO LOAD PEOPLE’S LUGGAGE…FOR FREE…..Sincerely, one tired, cranky flyer…….

3.  My boys and I had an incredible few days in Washington, DC……I will give you a short synopsis, with pictures….

***We did a tour of the Capitol building and the White House, courtesy of Rep. KRISTI NOEM….Her office was terrific in lining up these two visits, and one of KRISTI’S employees, ANDREW, was incredible in his knowledge of the Capitol…..For instance, DID YOU KNOW that the speakers of the house and senate, get to personally walk into any Smithsonian Museum, and choose an ORIGINAL ART PRINT that they want put on their office walls?  Yep, it’s true…..Except when they are heavy smokers…..Then the Smithsonian can turn them down……

Our White House tour was a self guided tour, in which we saw numerous rooms around the legendary house….It was super cool, and we even saw the room where the President holds his meetings and press conferences…..Cool….

9752_10204897490213854_3649902582531172174_n

We checked out the Washington Monument, and once again, didn’t get to go to the top…..Last time was because it was closed, and this time was because they had sold out on daily tickets before we got there……

10710814_10204897485573738_2169041289134558574_n

I always enjoy checking out the Lincoln memorial…..here are Mitchell, Tyler…and ABE….

10690028_10204897487093776_8781887462252961023_n

No doubt, the most emotional part of our trip was a visit to the Holocaust Museum.  I can’t, for the life of me think as to why someone in their right mind would do something so horrific as to what happened to these poor people….I guess the reason is why the words “right mind” don’t fit that maniacal leader…….Death, was too easy for Hitler…..

10009755_10204897487453785_5358876577103662994_n

We also went to see the band “AMERICA” at the legendary “BIRCHMERE MUSIC HALL.”  It was incredible….We made a stop at an area mall, and I found a very creative store name……

10703691_10204897490733867_5549666512840988872_n

And, we went to see an NHL hockey game….The Washington Capitals hosted the Florida Panthers….The home team won in a SHOOTOUT that went the full capacity……I will tell you this, however….There is NO better hockey game and fan participation than the Minnesota Wild at the ExCel Center…..

10256892_10204897491293881_4640331237157136154_n

 

But, the MAIN REASON we were there was….FOOTBALL….Yeah, my Washington Redskins played Tyler’s Tennessee Titans…I should clarify that my son Mitchell is a huge huge Skins fan, too…..

 

10417727_10204897497334032_6051403665149028455_n

 

We arrived early so we could walk the parking lots and check out some tailgating….Look at these vehicles we found…..

 

10439007_10204897494453960_1003400372477908921_n

10696157_10204897493933947_968023665517513073_n

 

I think that we had goose bumps when we walked over a small hill and saw the stadium…..

 

10734274_10204897495133977_1604417499299631564_n

 

My boys and I were dressed for the occasion….

 

1924972_10204897493293931_2029038794084361899_n

 

Here are some game day photos including Super Bowl MVP Mark Rypien getting inducted into the Redskins Ring Of Honor…….

10473724_10204897496934022_3501960778564281751_n

 

Our Skins wore retro uniforms, I believe, dating back to their first year in 1937……

D-JACK…..Desean Jackson…..

 

10629602_10204897498854070_6903005265103568346_n

 

And, I had to take a picture for my sister Krista, and our friend Tiffanie, who are IN LOVE with Ryan Kerrigan……My sister’s fantasy football team name is “Ryan taught me how to Kerrigan.”  say it a few times, you’ll get it…ha ha

 

10653541_10204897500334107_8939914428063146964_n

 

And, at the end of the game, you could hear over 80,000 screaming fans, and I could also hear my son Tyler’s heart breaking…..Skins kicker Kai Forbath kicked a field goal as time expired as the Redskins beat the Titans……

 

10708726_10204891604866724_7896215455346616647_o

 

4.  One observation from the game….We did not see ONE protestor at the game….And we walked almost completely around the building……IF, in fact, they WERE NOT there, then I think they are gutless…..It’s easy to go picket and protest at our away games when there are only a few thousand Skins fans in attendance….But, you want to stick by your guns?  Then come on into FedEx Field and protest in front of over 80,000 rabid fans……That would be interesting……By the way, I read about a new poll today that showed that only 14 percent of people polled think the name should be changed……That same poll a few months ago had over 20 percent wanting a name change…..People are losing interest in all of this…..People are finding out there is more things to worry about rather than a football team’s name……

 

5.  It’s one of my favorite weeks of the year……”THE HAUNTED FOREST” at Wylie park in Aberdeen……The Aberdeen Optimist’s Club and the Parks and Rec Department, put on this annual event, and it is INCREDIBLE……Every year these fine folks go to national meetings and gatherings to find out the latest in “scare tactics.”  This is truly one of the best haunts anywhere…..My wife and I go each year…..We actually plan OTHER events around this one…..Why?  check it out……

NEED I SAY MORE?  The “Haunted Forest” is this weekend…..Friday’s show tour starts at 6:30pm, and Saturday will also start at 6:30pm, HOWEVER, they put on a Saturday afternoon, in the daylight, show for kids from 1pm to 3pm……..It’s an awesome time……spine tingling….exciting……

 

6.  Oh, one more football story…….IT’S THAT SPECIAL WEEK OF THE YEAR…..

 

193f8db91f2fa0926ba8c087152db2f8

 

I do think it’s the best rivalry in sports…..I don’t know how this year will go, because my Skins are sucking it up, and the Cowboys are going gangbusters…..But, it’s still a great rivalry game…..Here’s how I hope it ends up…..

Cowboys Redskins

 

7.  Sad news…..When I last left you, searchers were looking for actress Misty Upham….Well, they found her….unfortunately they found her body….Misty’s body was found in a Seattle suburb…She was only 32….Misty Upham appeared in movies like “Frozen River”, and “August Osage County”. Here is the beautiful actress, including one with Jane Fonda…..

sns-rt-gm1e9b90zwd01-20141010

chi-photos-misty-upham-actress-20141017-002

 

8.  More sad news….The founder and lead singer of the group “MANHATTAN TRANSFER” has died….Tim Hauser was 72, and died of cardiac arrest last Thursday…..

manhattan-transfer-15052010-14

manhattan-transfer-photo-2

 

“MANHATTAN TRANSFER” is known for their tight harmonies and their fun songs…..Their biggest hit was in 1981…..Remember “BOY FROM NEW YORK CITY?”

 

 

I was also a huge fan of their song “TRICKLE TRICKLE”….

 

 

9.  It’s amazing how used you get to things…..Jeannie and I have been married for 27 years now……I have a lot of trouble sleeping when I’m alone..and while we were in Washington, I had to reposition my pillows to feel like she was behind me……Silly….but it helped…ha ha….

 

9.  JOKE OF THE DAY: 

 

Lawyers should never ask a Georgia grandma a question if they aren’t prepared for the answer.

In a trial, a Southern small-town prosecuting attorney called his first witness, a grandmotherly, elderly woman to the stand. He approached her and asked, ‘Mrs. Jones, do you know me?’ She responded, “Why, yes, I do know you, Mr. Williams. I’ve known you since you were a boy, and frankly, you’ve been a big disappointment to me. You lie, you cheat on your wife, and you manipulate people and talk about them behind their backs. You think you’re a big shot when you haven’t the brains to realize you’ll never amount to anything more than a two-bit paper pusher. Yes, I know you.”

The lawyer was stunned. Not knowing what else to do, he pointed across the room and asked, “Mrs. Jones, do you know the defense attorney?”

She again replied, “Why yes, I do. I’ve known Mr. Bradley since he was a youngster, too. He’s lazy, bigoted, and he has a drinking problem. He can’t build a normal relationship with anyone, and his law practice is one of the worst in the entire state. Not to mention he cheated on his wife with three different women. One of them was your wife. Yes, I know him.”

The defense attorney nearly died.

The judge asked both counselors to approach the bench and, in a very quiet voice, said, “If either of you idiots asks her if she knows me, I’ll send you both to the electric chair.”

 

HAVE A GREAT WEEK!!!!

10418929_1073455466017239_2502149116666257383_n

THIS ONE IS UTTERLY RIDICULOUS…..

1015192_1069335373095915_84007248397160470_o

AND YOU THOUGHT YOU’VE HAD A “CRAPPY” NIGHT SLEEP BEFORE!!!!!

10624678_1072615749434544_4179468613801324714_n

“IT’S JUST THE BEAR NECESSITIES…THE SIMPLE BEAR NECESSITIES…”

10702060_1074705192558933_7901021778228313932_n

2.  SOAPBOX TIME:  Recently someone complained about the Aberdeen Central football team praying before games, with the coach leading the prayer……..Well, this ONE PERSON got things going, and now the coaches cannot lead the prayers……There was an atheist group in Wisconsin that got involved….SERIOUSLY PEOPLE?  ONE PERSON IS UPSET AND THINGS CHANGE?  WHAT ABOUT THE MASSES THAT WANT IT?  This country is getting ridiculous….everybody is so “touchy” and if their feelings get hurt even a little bit, then changes need to be made…..I, for one, am tired of this junk…….If the majority wants things to stay like they are, they should stay like they are….it’s that simple…….

3.  Speaking of football, last night I ventured up to Oakes, ND to watch the Oakes Tornadoes play football.  I have one of my church kids playing on the team, and I TRY to get to at least one game by my church kids each year….

0825-oakes-kindred-gamer

This Oakes football team is GOOD…They are undefeated and are getting ready for the playoffs…..They have a very quick kickoff team, and a quarterback and running back that are super fast…..It would be fun to see an area team like Oakes go far into the playoffs in ND….And, of course, I personally want them to win, because my buddy Jeffrey plays for them…..By the way, this is not him in the above photo…..

4.  Well, we are literally hours away from boarding a plane and heading to our nation’s capitol……It is just me and the boys……Check out my incredibly handsome young men…..

10450321_10203929700099706_1588688144507980139_o

Too bad I had to drag down that nice photo….Anyway, my wife decided she didn’t want to go, so it’s a guy’s trip…..That’s kind of scary….Actually, it isn’t, we are well behaved……

What are we going to do in the big city?  TONS OF THINGS…..

We start out by seeing the legendary 70’s band “AMERICA”…..Yes, you probably remember that My wife, Mitchell and I saw them a few months ago, but Tyler hasn’t seen them, and they are incredibly good…..I can’t wait to see them sing their big hits…..

america-a-horse-with-no-name-warner-bros-3

And, of course, many many more….Here are the guys back in their heyday…..

And, here they are today…..

Let’s listen to a couple of their songs…This one is my fave…”Sister Golden Hair.”

And here’s the classic “Ventura Highway.”

5.  And what else are we doing?  Lots of fun stuff….History….Music….FOOTBALL AND HOCKEY!!!

As I mentioned before, we were granted passes to tour the White House!!!

032TOUR1-articleLarge

The Capitol building is incredible….We will see the deep inside of it as well…..

One things we didn’t have time to do last time, and WILL do this time is visit the Holocaust Museum…..

holocaust_museum

I told the boys we were going to spend a long time walking thru Arlington National Cemetery as well….

I made my boy’s day recently when I bought them tickets to see a band called “Minus The Bear.”  I don’t know them, but the boys love them……

minus_the_bear_tour_art10

All three of us have SERIOUSLY gotten in to NHL Hockey…..And we’re excited to see Alex Ovechkin play for the Washington Capitols, as they host Florida…….

ovechkin

Cats_Caps_LBC

And, of course, the main reason we are there….FOOTBALL….Mitchell and my Washington Redskins host Tyler’s favorite team, the Tennessee Titans…..I promised Tyler that whenever these two teams played we would go see them, so, HERE WE GO…..

redskins_viptag_oct19titans

Of course, I’m getting mentally prepared for our clashes with protesters…..They will be abundant and vocal….But I strongly feel that if they are allowed to give their views loudly, I am allowed to give MY views loudly…….So, I’m ready……

6.  Sad Hollywood news…..Former “SATURDAY NIGHT LIVE” member Jan Hooks has died at only 57…..TMZ is reporting that she was suffering from a “serious illness.”  Jan Hooks played some memorable characters on “SNL” including playing opposite Phil Hartman as Tammy Faye Bakker and Jim Bakker…..Remember how her mascara ran everywhere when she cried?  Ha ha…..

These two also appeared as “The Clintons.”

Rest in peace, Jan Hooks….Here is a fairly recent picture of her……

7.  More sad news….My wife and I were huge fans of the movie “August Osage County” starring Meryl Streep, Julia Roberts and many more…The movie also featured an actress by the name of Misty Upham.  She played the housekeeper and cook for the family……She is now missing somewhere in the state of Washington…..She was apparently staying with her sister and wandered off…..Her family says she has a medical condition……We wish the best to her and we hope that they find her soon…She has been missing since October 5TH…Misty also appeared in the movie “Django Unchained.”  Here she is with Meryl Streep, and with the cast of the movie…Misty is on the left in the blue dress……

???????????????????????????

8.  Most people that know me know that I DESPISE clowns…I have been afraid of them since childhood, and while I am not “afraid” of them anymore, they still creep me out and I’d just soon not be around one……Well, “American Horror Story-Freak Show” debuted this past Wednesday, and wouldn’t you know?  THERE’S A DERANGED CLOWN IN THE SHOW….AND HE IS SCARY!!!!

I literally had goose bumps watching him the other night…..yuck……

9.  JOKE OF THE DAY:

So, I’m sure you all heard of John Hoki, the inventor of the Hokey Pokey. While John’s life is well known, what’s not so well know, is a story that happened at his funeral.

Being that John was quite a popular fella, mostly due to the Hokey Pokey, which spread like wildfire through his small Middle Eastern town, thousands showed up for his funeral, all coming to bid him farewell.

Well, it happened right before the ceremony was about to begin, when the undertaker gently lifted John up to place him in the coffin. The problem that arose was that as soon as they put his right foot in…….(I’m sure you can figure out the rest.)

OKAY…HOW ABOUT ONE MORE?

Brian’s stress level was at unsurpassed levels.  His wife Maggie was in labor and Brian was sure it was time to head to the hospital.  Breathing heavily, Brian grabbed the phone and called the doctor.   “MY WIFE, SHE’S READY, SHOULD WE COME?”  The doctor tried to relax the poor fellow, “just try to relax, now tell me how much time elapses between the contractions?”  “SHIRLEY!”  Brian screamed on the top of his lungs,  “HOW MUCH TIME IN BETWEEN THE CONTRACTIONS? TEN MINUTES? OK, TEN MINUTES IN BETWEEN!”

“And is this her first child?” Questioned the doctor. “NO YOU STUPID NITWIT, THIS IS HER HUSBAND!”

ENJOY THE NEXT WEEK….TALK TO YOU SOON…

1.  LET’S HAVE SOME FUN…..

Well, I know that I’m not falling for this A THIRD TIME……..

164411_583721658322210_859624103_n

I have a couple of people I need to take to the area around this sign so it’s “legal.”

1555437_555017631265051_6108211890267404313_n

Hmmm…My Papa knew “French” too…..

999487_598296790214681_974907052_n

This is the one that made me laugh out loud and then feel bad about laughing…..

1394276_421813517941041_806851983_n

This sounds a lot like me lately…..

190164_365854680155247_1823040843_n

And finally……

1461598_597319947008718_600116321_n

2.  Well, I am officially CRUSHED…..After days, if not weeks of wrangling with some office people trying to get a Redskins tour of FedEx field on our D.C. vacation, it has all gone down the toilet…..I was informed today that they are no longer doing Thursday tours the weeks of gamedays……But, they didn’t know that last week…Hmmm….Anyway, they offered us the 11AM tour on Wednesday….The problem is, we don’t get in to D.C. until 10:35AM….Maybe DC isn’t that big of a city, and I can make it across town in 20 minutes…….(wink wink)

3.  But, we had some good news for the trip….I was just informed thru one of our Congress members, that my sons and I were granted passes to enter the WHITE HOUSE….Yeah, how about that?

United_States_Marine_Band_at_the_White_House

To be fair, I have been in the WHITE HOUSE before on a bus tour many years ago….But since the horrible day of 9-11, things have changed…It’s tougher to get into the WHITE HOUSE….Unless, of course, you just jump the fence and run towards it…..IDIOT……

We are also having one our Congressional member’s staff give us an “in depth” tour of the CAPITOL building….

US-capitol

I also have had this tour before, but it’s been years ago…..I am a history buff, and traveling around WASHINGTON, D.C. is my kind of day……..I CAN’T WAIT!!!

4.  Since we last talked, three things have happened in sports that have made me a VERY VERY HAPPY MAN….

****The Minnesota Gopher’s football team beat Michigan, IN Michigan….

****Number 11 Mississippi knocked off number 1 Alabama…..Take that Nick Saban….

****The New York Yankees have missed the playoffs again……That probably makes me happiest……

5.  Speaking of baseball, ever since my Minnesota Twins were eliminated from playoff contention back in April when they were two weeks into the season, I have been wondering who I will be cheering for in the postseason….Well, I now know……

Kansas_City_Royals

The ROYALS have not been in the American League Championship Series since 1985….Yeah, 1985…..It’s about time they do something, and they’re winning games in dramatic fashion!!  I never thought I would say this but…..GO ROYALS!!!!!

6.  All of this crap going on in the world is ridiculous……Why can’t we all just get along?  This person is trying to kill this person….This group wants this group dead……It makes me sick…..

Remember the good old days when “ISIS” was just a Saturday morning cartoon?

(seen here with SHAZAM)

773466069892109231

7.  MOVIE TIME……Since we last spoke, my beautiful wife and I have been gracing the theaters watching a few movies…..Here is a short synopsis of each……..

Yesterday we saw the new Ben Affleck movie “GONE GIRL.”  Good movie, except the ending SUCKED….My wife had read the book and was waiting to see my expression when the movie ended….I don’t think she liked my expression…ha ha……And, they showed a certain part of Ben’s anatomy in the movie that really didn’t have to be part of the movie……

Gone-Girl-Poster

Most of you know that I am a horror movie buff, so it’s no surprise that I LOVED the movie “ANNABELLE”, which is the prequel to “THE CONJURING”, which scared the “you know what” out of me……”ANNABELLE” had some horror spots where you jump out of your seats, and I even yelled a word out loud during one of them, which brought sheer delight to my son TYLER…..

MV5BMjM2MTYyMzk1OV5BMl5BanBnXkFtZTgwNDg2MjMyMjE@__V1_SX640_SY720_

However, wait until you see which one was my FAVORITE of the three movies that I saw…….

Screen-Shot-2014-09-02-at-5_35_02-PM

Great story….Great acting by an all star cast…..Do you know how I knew I was going to like this movie?  BECAUSE THE CRITICS HATED IT!!!!  This is one of those movies that I could have gone to twice…….

8.  Speaking of “horror”, we are just days away from the long awaited new season of “AMERICAN HORROR STORY”…..This season is called “FREAK SHOW.”  And it looks superb…..

ahs-twins-wallpaper

American-Horror-Story-Season-4

The show looks FREAKY….Oh wait, that’s in the title………What is surprising is that I can’t wait for the show, even though there will be CLOWNS in the movie….And I despise clowns…always have…always will……

9.  And now, it’s time for WHERE ARE THEY TODAY?  Today we feature actress OLYMPIA DUKAKIS….Remember her? 

olympia-dukakis-01

OLYMPIA appeared in, and won awards for great movies like “MOONSTRUCK”.  She starred in this movie with CHER….

fhd987MSK_Olympia_Dukakis_007

And, she was a big part of the all star cast of “STEEL MAGNOLIAS.”

MPW-39004

And in case you’re wondering, yes, OLYMPIA DUKAKIS is related to MICHAEL DUKAKIS…They are cousins…MICHAEL, of course, was the Democratic nominee for President in 1988…….

2011 Gabby Awards - After Party

OLYMPIA DUKAKIS is now 83 years old, and here’s what she looks like today…..

10.  JOKE OF THE DAY……..

Mom and Dad were trying to console Susie whose dog, Skipper, had recently died.

“You know,” Mom said, “it’s not so bad. Skipper’s probably up in Heaven right now, having a grand old time with God.”

Susie stopped crying and asked, “What would God want with a dead dog?”

HOW ABOUT ONE MORE?

Two guys get pulled over while drinking and driving.

The driver tells his friend, “Peel the labels off these beer bottles, and we’ll each stick one on our forehead. Now, shove all of the bottles under the front seat. Just let me do all the talking.”

The cop walks up and shines his flashlight into the car. “Have you been drinking?” he asks.

“No, sir,” the drunk answers. “We haven’t had a thing to drink tonight.”

“Then what on earth are those beer labels doing on your foreheads?”

“We’re both alcoholics,” says the drunk. “We’re on the patch.”

HAVE AN AWESOME WEEK…

This one always cracks me up….

521587_409960189097844_360851842_n

Sadly, this next one is true for me…ha ha

1004817_647241028647289_620282051_n

How about a little poultry humor?

10624751_10152402391242875_7798281056240488472_n

HMMM…i’ve always wondered about the next one….

Wow, that is some great work!!!

And finally…..

Hilarious-funy-cartoon

2.  As you probably know, my boys and I are going to Washington, DC in October to see my beloved Redskins play football.  We are also doing a bunch of historical touring….I love going to DC…I am a huge history buff, so I am in second heaven when I go there….

One of the things we are signed up for is a tour of FedEx Field, where my favorite team plays……The only catch is, we are the first three to sign up…They must have 20 people in order to take the tour…All three of us will be brokenhearted if we can’t take the tour……One of the highlights of the tour is going in the Redskins locker room…..Yep, I may wet myself……..

DSC_0235-960x618

3. Speaking of football, here are a couple of NFL notes to talk about…….

****First of all, some terribly sad news….Former Tennessee Titans kicker Rob Bironas was killed over the weekend in a car accident in Tennessee…….This impacted my son Tyler the most, because he is a diehard Titans fan, and loved Bironas…….Rob will go down in history as the FOURTH most accurate kicker in NFL history….How about that?  Sadly, also, he just got married to Terry Bradshaw’s daughter Rachel……

rachel-bradshaw-instagram-830x565

bironasweb23s-web

rob-bironas-768

Rob Bironas was killed less than a mile from his home…He was only 36……

****Well, I could have predicted this one….RG3 is hurt and Kirk Cousins is in….And, if you are keeping track, Kirk is kicking butt and taking names…Wow…He is playing incredibly great, in fact, many people are thinking that if he keeps it up, my Skins might have to trade RG3 and keep Cousins to be their franchise quarterback….My opinion?  That’s okay with me…..I am still a huge fan of RG3 and always will be….But it all comes down to winning games………And RG3 hasn’t been able to keep healthy much in his few years in the NFL…..I will tell you this….If RG3 comes back and my Skins trade Kirk Cousins, I will throw A FIT……..

By the way, the nickname game has already started….First there was RG3…And now?

Kirk-Cousins-the-First-Redskins-BreakingT

Kirk Cousins

****And, in Minnesota, the Teddy Bridgewater era is UNDERWAY…..Matt Cassel was injured last week, and just today was placed the injured reserve list, which means his season is over……And, “Teddy mania” is sweeping the upper midwest….Hang on folks….It’s going to take a little time for Teddy to adapt….Will he be great?  All signs point to yes…….But remember, we have all been excited before about rookie quarterbacks, and some of them have been total busts……

Teddy-Bridgewater

4.  My wife and I went to see a play in Aberdeen this past weekend at the Capitol Theater…I am not much on plays, but I am SO VERY GLAD that we went to this one, because it is, so far, the best play I have EVER seen, and I have seen plays at the Guthrie and Chanhassen…..The play was called “Leading Ladies.” 

10661812_793484290673701_2390060593207002167_o

We were blown away by the actors, especially the young red headed man, who is, get this….SIXTEEN YEARS OLD……My friend Kelsey also appeared in it, and she was MARVELOUS……The play centered on a couple of con men who were trying to get into the will of a rich lady who was dying….The only problem was, the two people who were named in the will were WOMEN….So, you guessed it….They dressed up as women…and then men…and then women…..I can’t imagine how fast they had to get changed…Anyway, hats off to Aberdeen Community Theater, proving once again, that you don’t have to travel to the “big city” for quality plays!!!!!

5.  Country music has lost their “International Ambassador Of Country Music.”  George Hamilton IV, died last week in Nashville after suffering a heart attack….He was 77 years old….George grew up listening to my favorite singer, Hank Williams……He then took on singing on his own, and because a member of the Grand Ole Opry….George Hamilton IV is known for a few hits, but none bigger than his 1963 hit that was produced by Chet Atkins……

george-hamilton-iv-abilene-rca-gold-standard

George

george_hamilton_0_1410783809

If you ever had the chance to meet him, you will remember him as an extremely nice, soft voiced man…..Very pleasant……Remember his hit?

6.  Well, some people are getting my gander up again……I have had so much trouble lately with people driving in the LEFT LANE, which is the turning lane on our streets, in some cases…..If it’s not for turning, it’s CERTAINLY for passing other vehicles….The other day, we had a packed line in the right lane, and one guy driving 15 MPH in the left lane……Yep, you guessed it…My road rage set in…..ha ha….I need to relax more when driving…..But, I have always had trouble accepting poor driving skills…..Just this morning, I almost rear ended a guy who decided to switch lanes and hurry up and turn, with NO BLINKERS ON…..That would have REALLY upset me….

7.  I have good news and bad news concerning one of my favorite rock and roll bands of all time…..

ac-dc-logo--large-msg-125669415861

161846c6c59f936cfa10778e2190c7491

The good news concerning AC/DC is that they are now recording their first album in six years called “Rock Or Bust.”   The sad news is, they are doing it WITHOUT founding member Malcolm Young, who has an “undisclosed illness”, although the rumor mill says it is cancer……..This will be the first time in 41 years that Malcolm has not recorded or toured with his band….Very sad……..Here is Malcolm Young, including a picture with his brother Angus, who formed the band with him……

AC/DC BLACK ICE TOUR; Madison Square Garden; Dan Acquilante

Angus-Young-Malcolm-Young

I have had the pleasure of seeing AC/DC in concert two times, and hopefully, there will be a third…..It also thrills me that both of my boys have already seen this rock and roll legendary band…..

8.  JOKE OF THE DAY:

After just a few years of marriage, filled with constant arguments, a young man and his wife decided the only way to save their marriage was to try counseling. They had been at each other’s throat for some time and felt that this was their last straw. When they arrived at the counselor’s office, the counselor jumped right in and opened the floor for discussion.

“What seems to be the problem?” Immediately, the husband held his long face down without anything to say. On the other hand, the wife began talking 90 miles an hour describing all the wrongs within their marriage.

After 5…10…15 minutes of listening to the wife, the counselor went over to her, picked her up by her shoulders, kissed her passionately for several minutes, and sat her back down. Afterwards, the wife sat there speechless.

He looked over at the husband who was staring in disbelief at what had happened. The counselor spoke to the husband, “Your wife NEEDS that at least twice a week!”

The husband scratched his head and replied, “I can have her here every Tuesday and Thursday.”

THANKS FOR READING THE BLOG!!!  TAKE CARE, MY FRIENDS….

2.  Well, since we last spoke, my WASHINGTON REDSKINS lost to the HOUSTON TEXANS in week one of the NFL…Here’s the deal…You CANNOT lose two fumbles within the 10 yard line and expect to win!!!!  Oh well, we may rebound this weekend against the JACKSONVILLE JAGUARS….I sincerely hope we start winning, being me and the boys are flying out to watch them in October!!!  ha ha

10516774_10204566933110133_8848801341179777263_n

I thought the best comment about the REDSKINS and how they played last Sunday was given by Redskins special teams coach BEN KOTWICA….He compared their loss to the Titanic….He said this….”The food was great….the music sounded wonderful…..and then we hit the iceberg.”   Pretty darn creative if you ask me…..

The only thing that took away the sting of the loss was the fact that our arch enemy, the DALLAS COWBOYS were humiliated at home by the SAN FRANCISCO 49’ERS…..

1622027_10204576026017450_9117956835054738825_n

3.  The hit TV show “MARRIED WITH CHILDREN” ran for 11 seasons and produced 259 incredibly funny episodes…..Recently the cast got together for “The Mom” on the show, KATEY SAGAL, to receive her “Hollywood Star.”  You probably remember what they looked like when the show started in 1987……

Since the show ended, the cast has had a bunch of success.  Here’s what they look like today……

4.  Back when I was in junior high, I had an INCREDIBLE crush on KRISTI MCNICHOL.  And seriously, how could I not?

KRISTI went on to start in great shows like “FAMILY”, and “EMPTY NEST.”  She turns 52 years old today…..Here is what she looks like today……

6.  And of course, unless you’ve been living under a rock, you know that JOAN RIVERS has died at the age of 81…..Not meaning to be disrespectful to her, I have to tell you that I was never a huge fan…..I appreciate what she did for women comedians, and for what she did for the comedy circuit in general….I enjoyed her comedy, but was never a “huge fan.”  And that’s okay…We can’t be huge fans of everybody……

7.  JOKE OF THE DAY…..

Ol’ Fred had been a religious man who was in the hospital, near death. The family called their preacher to stand with them. As the preacher stood next to the bed, Ol’ Fred’s condition appeared to deteriorate and he motioned frantically for something to write on.

The pastor lovingly handed him a pen and a piece of paper, and Ol’ Fred used his last bit of energy to scribble a note, then he died. The preacher thought it best not to look at the note at that time, so he placed it in his jacket pocket.

At the funeral, as he was finishing the message, he realized that he was wearing the same jacket that he was wearing when Ol’ Fred died.

He said, “You know, Ol’ Fred handed me a note just before he died. I haven’t looked at it, but knowing Fred, I’m sure there’s a word of inspiration there for us all.”

He opened the note, and read out loud, “Hey, you’re standing on my oxygen tube?”

HAVE A GREAT DAY!!!!

RANDOM THOUGHTS FOR THURSDAY SEPTEMBER 4TH, 2014

1.  LET’S HAVE SOME FUN….

 

Hmmm….I have been wrong all of this time about what a “DECOY” is used for when it comes to birds……

 

936054_10152496963670169_3900538999595065149_n

 

This is for all of the NDSU fans out there…ha ha….

This next one is TOTALLY my sense of humor…in fact, I’ve used it before…BIG SHOCK, RIGHT?

 

1476463_10152059630805169_963797719_n

 

This one actually made me laugh out loud today…..

 

1901524_10152761604959062_6033698693147644883_n

 

And to think, I did it wrong all of those years ago…….

 

10364039_10152421258553883_8604226261966223464_n

 

And finally, I’m probably going to pay for this one…..

 

156246_10152167714770169_236684071_n

 

 

2.  OKAY…soapbox first…then some more fun….

 

I am not a big fan of war….I know that we need to go sometimes, and I support that…..I have nothing but respect for the military and it’s soldiers who put their lives on the line so that I can write stupid blogs……and say what I want….I just hate seeing our people killed in battle or having to live their lives with permanent injuries…..come to think of it, I don’t think ANYONE is a big FAN of wars…..

 

With that said, we have some whack jobs and nutcases that we need to deal with….These beheadings of our media members is insane……How anyone could do this is beyond me….and they do it in the name of GOD?  Obviously not the same GOD that I have……

 

We need to act quickly…..we need to eradicate those people who don’t value life…..And if they are a threat to our freedom, then we need to do something, just like we did in other wars when our freedom was threatened….We just cannot sit by and watch this happen over and over again…..

 

And a work to our leaders…..STOP GIVING OUR PLANS OUT ON WORLDWIDE TV….That drives me up a wall….”Here’s what we intend to do.”  NO….BE QUIET…Just do it and let us know the outcome…..it sucks when we continually give our enemies a chance to run and hide……

 

 

3.  A little sad news for you…..the lead singer of the band “SURVIVOR” has died…..JIMI JAMISON was 63 when he died of a heart attack in Memphis the other day……JIMI JAMISON did not sing lead on “EYE OF THE TIGER” but he sang lead on the other hits…..

10500469_10152509917220169_5722716501534852310_n

 

Many of you probably remember as children, going to RAPID CITY, SOUTH DAKOTA and having the donkeys roam up to your car and look for food…..This is about the face that I had in a couple of pictures in our scrapbook when I was probably seven years old, or younger…..It was terrifying having this great big head and great big teeth right next to you…ha ha….We could also get out of the car and feed them by hand…….Ahhh….great memories…oh wait, terrifying memories…ha ha…..

Isn’t that funny when you think about it?  I do believe that there is life other than us in the universe….There has to be…..Do I believe that they have ventured into our world?  Yes, I do….Maybe I am crazy for it, but I do believe that they have……These “crop circles” and “cows turned inside out” are something very freaky……and what about “area 51?”  It seems like they are hiding SOMETHING there…..I just wish that, if there is something there, that our officials would be honest with us…..But, then again, why start being honest now, right?

 

 

6.  Can you believe that they remake movie of the “LITTLE RASCALS” is twenty years old?  Man, time flies….The original gang got together from that movie and redid their movie poster….This is MAJORLY COOL……

This is sure wetting my appetite to watch it again….Of course though, I am a HUGE fan of the original “LITTLE RASCALS”…I even own some of their shows……

7.  I COULD NOT BE MORE EXCITED…THE NFL SEASON IS HERE…YAY….

 

Quite possibly the best thing to come around is the “NFL CHANNEL”, which kept me sane during the offseason…ha ha….I am completely excited to watch my WASHINGTON REDSKINS play this Sunday against the HOUSTON TEXANS…I am excited to see what our new head coach can do…JAY GRUDEN took over for MIKE SHANAHAN, who had a disastrous few years in our nations capital…..

 

I am so pumped, because in a few weeks, my boys and I will travel to D.C. to watch my SKINS play TYLER’S TENNESSEE TITANS…..

 

And, of course, with the onset of football, I must continue my attack on others teams…ha ha….

 

This first one is hilarious, but it pains me, because the VIKINGS are my second favorite team….But, history doesn’t lie…it’s true…

 

It’s the VIKINGS trophy case…..

And, of course, I have to take a shot at my most least liked team….ha ha….

8.  Well, during the LABOR DAY weekend my wife and I along with a couple of friends went to the SOUTH DAKOTA STATE FAIR in HURON to see the legendary rock band “BOSTON.”  This was the second time I have seen them and they were WAY BETTER this time around……..

“BOSTON” founder, lead guitar player, producer, writer, and pretty much the brains and backbone of the band, TOM SCHOLZ was amazing….he is now 67 years old and certainly doesn’t look it……

It makes me sad that our biggest part of concert going is over for the years….However, I just ordered tickets to see “AMERICA” when we are out in D.C……You probably remember that I saw them a few months ago…Yes, they are that good that I want to go again……

 

9.  JOKE OF THE DAY…..

 

No one in this town could catch any fish except this one man.
The game warden asked him how he did it so the man told the game warden that he would take him fishing the next day… Once they got to the middle of the lake the man took out a stick of dynamite, lit it, and threw it in the water. After the explosion fish started floating to the top of the water. The man took out a net and started picking up the fish. The game warden told him that this was illegal. The man took out another stick of dynamite and lit it. He then handed it to the game warden and said ” are you going to fish or talk?”

 

HAVE AN AWESOME WEEK…
