random thoughts for wednesday october 6th, 2010





1.  today, just for the heck of it, we’ll salute PATRICK DUFFY….PATRICK DUFFY is known, of course, for playing BOBBY EWING on “DALLAS”, and he’s also known for playing on the tv shows “THE MAN FROM ATLANTIS” (remember that one?) and “STEP BY STEP” with SUZANNE SOMERS…..PATRICK is now 61 years old….wow….

here he is in the immortal “shower scene” from DALLAS….remember that?  BOBBY EWING didn’t die, he was just in the shower!!! THE DUMBIES FORGOT TO LOOK THERE….

and here he is as the “web footed” star of “THE MAN FROM ATLANTIS”…..

here is PATRICK DUFFY with the cast of the tv show”STEP BY STEP.”

and here is PATRICK DUFFY today at 61….still pretty good lookin’ if i say so myself….(it’s okay for a guy to say that, right?)

2.  let’s go back in time…

here’s the scene where BOBBY EWING “dies”….


and here’s the infamous “SHOWER SCENE.” his wife PAM dreamed it all….hmmm..that doesn’t sound like a soap opera, does it?


3.  well, we got back from MINNEAPOLIS about 11:30 last night…not a long night of sleep, but i feel GREAT….my church treasurer and i went to the TWIN CITIES for a church convention…..our churches in HOUGHTON AND HECLA, left the ELCA last year, and joined the LCMC….which stands for “LUTHERAN CHURCHES IN A MISSION FOR CHRIST.”  it’s an awesome organization to be in…know what their motto is?  “THE CONGREGATIONS RUN THE CHURCH…”   what a novel idea…..we learned a few things, and met some really nice people….good time…..

4.  we went to the “OLIVE GARDEN” restraunt when we got to MINNEAPOLIS on sunday night….i tried a soup called “italian chili” and it was AWESOME….would love to have the recipe for that one….

5.  RANDY MOSS BACK TO THE VIKINGS?  it looks like it…..by the time you read this, it may be announced.  RANDY MOSS has had trouble getting a long term contract from the NEW ENGLAND PATRIOTS, and has, as usual, shot his mouth off this year…this past weekend, the coach of the PATRIOTS, BILL BELICHECK, didn’t throw to RANDY MOSS one time, which analysts say is the team trying to see what it would be like without MOSS…well, the PATS won in big fashion, and now the rumor mill has started…in my opinion, RANDY MOSS would be the perfect target for BRETT FAVRE..i just hope he doesn’t run over a traffic cop, again…..

6.  BETTY WHITE IS STILL HOT….and she’s in everything, including a new “hollywood’s most eligable bachelorettes….ha ha….JENNIFER ANISTON is ranked number one, and BETTY WHITE is ranked number four….isn’t that crazy?  what a resurgence in her career…..

7.  DAMN THE LUCK… a FLORIDA man, apparently SHREDDED his lottery ticket that was worth $14.5 MILLION DOLLARS….everybody was feeling sorry for the guy,until….THE REAL WINNER CAME FORWARD WITH THE TICKET…nice try, dude….

8.  ANYBODY ELSE TIRED OF “COMPUTER” VOICES WHEN YOU CALL YOUR BANKS AND OTHER BUSINESSES?  cripes….it makes me SICK to have to push buttons to talk to someone, and sometimes after 10 minutes, YOU STILL DON’T GET ANYONE….”PUSH ONE FOR THIS..PUSH TWO FOR THIS…PUSH THREE FOR THIS…… the only one i’ll push up is my finger toward the companies that have this crap….ANNOYING….

9.  PRESIDENT OBAMA is hoping to get young people EXCITED to vote…oh no, not another STIMULATING PACKAGE…um…i mean, stimulus…hee hee

10.  DONALD TRUMP says that he’s seriously thinking about running for president…i’d vote for him, only if he tells a bunch of members of congress, “YOU’RE FIRED.”

11.  a court ruled that CHIPPENDALE’S can’t trademark it’s dancer costume of a BOW TIE AND CUFFS, because it’s not that original…thank goodness..that’s what i’ve been wearing to bed for YEARS….

12.  a nine year old WISCONSIN boy climbed into a claw toy vending machine and got stuck….it took firefighters a while to get him out because the claw kept slipping off of his head…..

13.  LADY GAGA performed in NEW YORK wearing a dress made entirely of human hair….it was either a hair dress, or she was standing to close to JUSTIN BIEBER AND DONALD TRUMP….

14.  critics are giving negative reviews to former NEW YORK governor ELLIOT SPITZER’S new CNN show…it’s only a 30 minute show, but out of habit SPITZER expects to pay for the full hour….

15.  actress LISA RINNA revealed that she underwent surgery to reduce the size of her silicone injected upper lip….folks at CHAPSTICK were heard saying ‘DAMN.”


 When the store manager returned from lunch, he noticed his clerk’s hand was bandaged, but before he could ask about the bandage, the clerk said he had some very good news for him.
    “Guess what, sir?” the clerk said. “I finally sold that terrible, ugly suit we’ve had so long!”
    “Do you mean that repulsive pink-and-blue double-breasted thing?” the manager asked.
    “That’s the one!”
    “That’s great!” the manager cried, “I thought we’d never get rid of that monstrosity! That had to be the ugliest suit we’ve ever had! But tell me. Why is your hand bandaged?”
    “Oh,” the clerk replied, “after I sold the guy that suit, his guide dog bit me.”
