1. GET READY TO LAUGH!!!!

I could not agree more with this…..WHY IS IT SO TOUGH?

This one is short, sweet and to the point……

Okay, you folks know me pretty well….This next one is TOTALLY my sense of humor……

The headline would read “AT & T LOVES E.T.”…..

2. It’s another installment of “OUR WORLD HAS GONE CRAZY.”

Did you hear about this? A two year old girl has been suspended from daycare for three days for bringing a CHEESE SANDWICH to the daycare….YEAH….how about that? This two year old’s Dad gave her a cheese sandwich, and like kids will do, she hid it to eat it later. Well, the rules state “no outside food allowed.” They say that’s because of food allergies among some of the kids…..Okay, I get that….I understand that rules should not be broken, so I do understand where the daycare is coming from….BUT, A TWO YEAR OLD? This child probably doesn’t even know what the situation is……Here is the culprit that caused all the pandemonium…..

3. Not many people can say that their Grandfather is a CLOWN….Well, my Grandpa was funny and all, but not a clown……Cincinnati Reds pitcher TREVOR BELL can claim this, however….He is the Grandson of BOZO THE CLOWN….Yep, his Grandpappy was BOB BELL who played BOZO THE CLOWN on WGN-TV in CHICAGO from 1960-1984……

BOZO’S Grandson also pays tribute to him with a tattoo……(I hope he doesn’t wear a squirting flower when he’s on the pitcher’s mound.)

4. GAME SHOW HOSTS ARE DROPPING LIKE FLIES….Well, that’s probably not the appropriate way to say it but it’s true…….

First, “THE DATING GAMES” host, JIM LANGE died at the age of 81……..

And, not so long after that, the host of “TREASURE HUNT”, and “JACKPOT” died….His name was GEOFF EDWARDS…..He was 83……..

WINK MARTINDALE, wherever you are, STAY INSIDE…..DON’T TOUCH ANYTHING…….

5. This is one of the most horrible things I have seen and heard in many many years…..In fact, I shouldn’t even write about it, but I wanted to show you how low some people can go……”FAST AND THE FURIOUS” star PAUL WALKER died November 30th in a horrible horrible car crash that also started on fire….Well, some idiots are selling DEATH MEMORABILIA from the crash site……Yeah, no kidding….And, supposedly, these are the sunglasses that he was wearing……..

It’s pathetic what some people will do to make money….How about this? Go out and get a REAL JOB and work hard for your money like everyone else!!! UNBELIEVABLE…….my question is, wouldn’t these items be charred beyond recognition? Yeah, they also are selling the fire extinguisher used at the site…..UNREAL….

6. ON TO BIGGER AND BRIGHTER NEWS!!!

I have a song that is, honestly, one of my favorite songs from growing up….I used to spend hours and hours and hours playing records in my Grandparent’s basement while the other kids were outside playing…..Apparently that’s where my love of music came from!!! One of the songs I used to wear the grooves off of was called “YOU DON’T HAVE TO PAINT ME A PICTURE” by GARY LEWIS AND THE PLAYBOYS……

I’m sure most of you know, but GARY LEWIS is the son of legendary comedian JERRY LEWIS…..It’s not his birthday today, but I wanted to salute him anyway….GARY LEWIS is now 68 years old….Here is a picture of the band recently, and one with his famous Papa…….

7. OKAY, IT’S MUSIC TIME!!! I will save the best for last…ha ha….

Here’s the number one hit from GARY LEWIS AND THE PLAYBOYS called “THIS DIAMOND RING.”

And here it is!!! One of my faves from my childhood….I will let you in on a little secret….My jukebox at home is completely full of classic country records…….This song is one of only TWO songs from pop or rock and roll that made my jukebox right now….In fact, these next two are the ONLY two records to not leave my jukebox since I bought it around ten years ago…..

Here’s the awesome song “YOU DON’T HAVE TO PAINT ME A PICTURE.”

8. Isn’t it crazy that I featured TWO singers this week and both are on the LIBERTY label?

Are you curious about what the other song is that has never left my jukebox? It’s “YOU DIDN’T HAVE TO BE SO NICE” by THE LOVIN’ SPOONFUL….Another in that category of favorite songs of my childhood…….

9. JOKE OF THE DAY:

A cat died and went to heaven. St. Peter said to the cat, “Is there anything I can do to make your stay here better?” The cat said, “I’ve been sleeping on a cold floor and I’d love a warm pillow to sleep on. St. Peter gave a pillow to the cat, and the cat headed off to bed. Later, some mice came to St. Peter. They wanted roller skates to get around faster so St. Peter gave them their skates and the mice went off. The next evening St. Peter checks in on the cat. “How was your night last night?” The cat said “That pillow you gave me is really nice, but what I like the most about heaven is the Meals on Wheels.”

HAVE A GREAT REST OF THE DAY AND AN AWESOME WEEKEND!!!
