with this major winter storm coming to the area, i would like to share a personal story, so that maybe it will stop you from going out in the horrible weather….

back before my beautiful wife JEANNIE, i was dating a girl who lived a few miles outside of EDEN…..this was back in 1984 when that WALL CLOUD came from the north that killed some people in FARGO…

anway, i HAD TO GO SEE HER, you know how that is…..

between ROSLYN AND EDEN, the wall cloud hit, and i could’t see the hood of my car…a short time later, i went directly into a ditch…i stepped out of the car with my very light jacket on, and i couldn’t see my feet because it was blowing and snowing so hard….so, like the brainless wonder that i can sometimes be, i started walking toward the local radio station to stay warm until i could get the car out….

it let up just enough that i could see a 4×4 coming out of EDEN…the man stopped and said that they only reason he was allowed to leave EDEN was that he had a state radio in his vehicle…he asked me where the hell i was going,  and i told him that i was walking to the radio station for help…he then pointed in the opposite way i was walking and said, “THE RADIO STATION IS THIS WAY…YOU WERE WALKING INTO AN OPEN FIELD.”

bottom line folks…I COULD HAVE DIED THAT DAY IN THE STORM….if i had gotten out into that field, i would have never ever found my way out….

PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE be safe during this major winter storm….keep the kids home, don’t let anybody venture out when it gets bad like it’s supposed to….

hopefully my personal story will help some people….

a real woman is a man’s best friend….she will never stand him up, and never let him down…she will reassure him when he feels insecure, and comfort him after a bad day.  she will inspire him to do things he never thought he could do….to live without fear, and forget regrets….she will enable him to express his deepest emotions, and give in to his most intimate desires….she will make sure he always feels as though he’s the most handsome man in the room, and will enable him to be the most confident, sexy, seductive and invincible…umm….

oh wait…sorry, i’m thinking of WHISKEY…it’s WHISKEY that does all that…sorry ladies…..

ALL THERE IS, IS A CLOWN IN MY HEAD…..

1.  i watched the most incredible show last night on HBO…i sincerely couldn’t walk away, and couldn’t shut the tv show off….it’s CARRIE FISHER’S autobiography called “WISHFUL DRINKING.”  CARRIE spills her guts about being a celebrity child, growing up famous, her days in a mental institution, and all the drugs….IT WAS AWESOME…and i highly recommend you to watch it, or catch her doing it “live” somewhere….WOW…of course, if you know your history, CARRIE FISHER is the daughter of crooner EDDIE FISHER, and major 50’s and 60’s babe, DEBBIE REYNOLDS….here they are with her baby brother TODD….

CARRIE FISHER is mostly known for playing “PRINCESS LEIA, in the classic movie “STAR WARS.”

QUITE THE SEXY WOMAN, HUH?

today, CARRIE FISHER is 54 years old, and here she is….

2.  i’m in the mood for another “classic” song that you can listen to and watch….let’s see…oh, how about this one!!!

i used to play the heck out of this record in my GRANDMA AND GRANDPA’S basement in BRITTON…here’s  THE LOVIN’ SPOONFUL with “YOU DIDN’T HAVE TO BE SO NICE.”

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YpZI8biFsn8

did you recognize that guy introducing the band?  it was PETER NOONE from “HERMAN’S HERMITS.”  here’s my favorite “HERMITS” song, “DANDY.”

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jEvvaQJlfzU

3.  our lovely news director BRI MATTHEWS is celebrating a birthday today….HAPPY BIRTHDAY BRI-BEE….here’s a picture of our birthday girl, along with the love of her life, our own BRENT NATHANIEL….

4.  THE PAIN CONTINUES FOR ALL VIKINGS FANS…it seems like the purple hurt their fans about every season…so now, here’s a sign FOR ALL VIKINGS FANS….this is super funny….

5.  it’s almost NEW YEAR’S EVE…BE CAREFUL…

6.  well, it’s the final week of fantasy football, and i’m in the championship game for my family’s league, taking on my nephew JOSH….it’s a two week championship, and i’m now like 20 points behind….the problem is, WHICH PLAYERS WILL PLAY THIS WEEKEND?  sometimes teams rest their starters for the playoffs, or try out younger players if they’re out of the playoff picture…SHOULD BE INTERESTING…i’ll let you know monday whether or not i won…i’m sure i won’t…

7.  a new study suggests that teenagers who use headphones to listen to music DO NOT suffer any significant hearing loss….they just act like it….

8.  investor CHARLES SCHWAB is recovering from heart surgery….this would be funny…place the stock market graph next to his heart monitor…you probably couldn’t tell the difference…

9.  WEIRDO…a SOUTH CAROLINA man is in the hospital after being run over by a car, as he was playing a real life game of “FROGGER.”…the man was slowed down significantly because he had just played “PAC MAN” at a local all you can eat buffet….and unfortunately, the driver was playing his own rendition of “GRAND THEFT AUTO.”

10.  CHINA has introduced a vending machine that dispenses LIVE CRABS…in AMERICA these machines are called BRITNEY, PARIS, LINDSAY, and whoever CHARLIE SHEEN is with…

11.  REESE WITHERSPOON has announced that she’s engaged…TO AN AGENT….hopefully not the same one who conviced her to be in her latest movie…if that’s the case, this relationship is doomed from the start….

12.  JOKE OF THE DAY:

I think my wife is selling drugs! Yesterday I was running a little bit late for work and the phone rang. I answered it. Before I could say anything a male voice on the line said, Hey honey is that DOPE gone yet?

OR HOW ABOUT THIS…

A lady was picking through the frozen turkeys at the grocery store, but she couldn’t find one big enough for her family. She asked a stock boy, “Do these turkeys get any bigger?” The stock boy replied, “No ma’am, they’re dead.”

HAVE A GREAT THURSDAY EVERYBODY…

4.  looks like some really CRAPPY weather is coming today and tomorrow…BE SAFE OUT THERE…remember to listen to SUNNY 97.7 for the latest weather, and check out road reports and weather at hubcityradio.com……………your road reports are sponsored by BUD AND OWENS COLLISION TECHNICIANS…

5.  MILESTONE LAST NIGHT…i FINALLY triumphed over my wife in WII golf last night….she always pounds me, but last night my shots were falling…plus, i stayed fairly competitive in tennis with her too….she KILLS ME in tennis every time we play….

6.  a FLORIDA woman was arrested for trying to steal a pair of shoes under HER BREASTS….she probably would’ve made it if the shoes weren’t still on another customer…

7.  a NEW YORK woman recently gave birth to a girl that was created from an embryo that had been FROZEN since 1998….the couple wanted another child, plus they needed more freezer room for the holidays…

9.  PRESIDENT OBAMA called the owner of the PHILADELPHIA EAGLES to congratulate him on giving MICHAEL VICK a second chance after his dog fighting debacle….the call would have lasted longer, but WHITE HOUSE dog “BO” chewed thru the phone cord when he found out what his master was doing…

10.  an 18 year old was arrested for breaking into the home of film director TYLER PERRY…WILL SOMEONE PLEASE TAKE THAT BONG AWAY FROM MILEY CYRUS?

11.  JOKE OF THE DAY:

A man and his wife were having some problems at home and were giving each other the silent treatment. The next week the man realized that he would need his wife to wake him at 5.00 am for an early morning business flight to Chicago. Not wanting to be the first to break the silence, he finally wrote on a piece of paper, “Please wake me at 5.00 am.”
The next morning the man woke up, only to discover it was 9.00am, and that he had missed his flight. Furious, he was about to go and see why his wife hadn’t woken him when he noticed a piece of paper by the bed … it said… “It is 5.00am; wake up.”

HAVE A GREAT WEDNESDAY EVERYBODY…

HAPPY NEW YEAR FROM DISCOUNT VAC AND DAKOTA HOT TUBS IN ABERDEEN….

 

1.  we have a couple of celebrity birthdays today….ladies first…actress NICHELLE NICHOLS is 78 today…remember her?  she played UHURA on “STAR TREK” for all of those years…

and here she is today at 78…………

 

2.  also, actor MARTIN MILNER of “ADAM 12” and “ROUTE 66” turns 79 today…..here he is from both shows….

here’s MARTIN MILNER today at 79…………

wondering what his “ADAM 12” co-star KENT MCCORD looks like today?  here he is…he’s 68 today…..

 

3.  THOUGHT FOR THE DAY:

“when a man opens a car door for his wife, we can assume one of two things…..it’s a new car, or, it’s not his wife.”

4.  my wife really really likes this show on CBS called “MIKE AND MOLLY.”  so, last night, while relaxing, i decided to watch an episode of it….

for me, NOT SO MUCH….i only laughed mildly a couple of times…didn’t really find the characters appealing….which is okay…to each his own, right?  JEANNIE AND I absolutely LOVE “THE OFFICE” but we have many friends and family who cannot stand that show……this is one for me that i won’t have to watch many more episodes of….

5.  CRAP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  i was on the DAKOTA MAGIC CASINO website last night, finding out what time the ‘KANSAS’ concert begins on january 7th….

so, i get to their website, and over the picture of the band is the word, “CANCELLED.”……DAGNABIT……we had it all set…it was going to be a night out with our kids, who love our rock and roll….well, now we’ll have to find another concert to go to….

6.  i’ve had numerous people ask me what i think of the BROWN COUNTY FAIR LINEUP this year……the artists are LEANN RIMES, JOSH TURNER, AND THE BAND PERRY….well, the bottom line is, we won’t be going…..i have fought for YEARS for some variety on the stage….i have no problem whatsoever with new country, and i would LOVE a classic country night, like KENNY ROGERS, RONNIE MILSAP and others who have been here…but i continue to say that we need one ROCK OR POP night at the fair…years ago, they had 38 SPECIAL, PAT BENETAR, LITTLE RIVER BAND, and others.  and i wish that they would have continued that….it’s okay though…you cannot please everybody……i’m just going to find some other bands i want to see, and i’m going to go see them….

7.  yesterday, i made a joke about a civil war message that was found, and i made a comment about it being between LARRY KING and ANDY ROONEY, being they are two really old farts…well, i apologize for that remark…what i MEANT TO SAY, was that the civil war message was decoded, and it turned out to be HUGH HEFNER’S  FIRST WEDDING INVITATION…..

8.  by the way, if you haven’t heard, 84 year old HUGH HEFNER is marrying 24 year old playmate CRYSTAL HARRIS…..in thier wedding, there will be the traditional “something old and something blue.”  HEF will be the “something old”  and his suitcase full of VIAGRA will be the “something blue.”

9.  “OCTOMOM” NADYA SULEMAN, and her FOURTEEN KIDS are facing eviction AGAIN because she owes $450,000 in overdue payments….here’s my opinion…it’s time for “OCTOMOM” to get off her fat “OCTOBUTT” and get an “OCTOJOB.”

10.  BRISTOL PALIN is moving to ARIZONA…isn’t that ironic?  she’s a “PRO-CELIBACY” spokesperson, who is moving to an area that has had a “LONG DRY SPELL.”

11.  ninteen surfing “SANTAS” brought some cheer to beachgoers over the weekend in COCOA BEACH, FLORIDA…several of the surfing SANTAS suffered a wipeout….which is what CHRISTMAS and SANTA did to my bank account….

12.  JOKE OF THE DAY:  (a good one, too)

An old man and woman were married for years even though they hated each other. When they had a fight, screams and yelling could be heard deep into the night.
    A constant statement was heard by the neighbors who feared the man the most… “When I die I will dig my way up and out of the grave to come back and haunt you for the rest of your life!”
    They believed he practiced black magic and was responsible for missing cats and dogs, and strange sounds at all hours. He was feared and enjoyed the respect it garnished.
    He died abruptly under strange circumstances and the funeral had a closed casket. After the burial, the wife went straight to the local bar and began to party as if there was no tomorrow. The gaiety of her actions were becoming extreme while her neighbors approached in a group to ask these questions:
    Are you not afraid? Concerned? Worried? That this man who practiced black magic and stated when he died he would dig his way up and out of the grave to come back and haunt you for the rest of your life?
    The wife put down her drink and said …
    “Nah… let the old man dig. I had him buried upside down!”

HAVE A GREAT TUESDAY EVERYBODY…..
