random thoughts for monday february 14th, 2011

HAPPY VALENTINES DAY!!!!

here’s the CUPID i want to show up at your house….

 

today’s daily blog is sponsored, as always, by  DISCOUNT VAC AND DAKOTA HOT TUBS BOTH OF ABERDEEN…

 

1.  actress BETTY GARRETT died over the weekend at the age of 91….think you don’t remember her?  you will…BETTY GARRETT starred in the movies “ON THE TOWN”, “TAKE ME OUT TO THE BALLGAME” and many more…

but she is best known as being the neighbor of ARCHIE BUNKER on “ALL IN THE FAMILY”.  she’s the one who gave ARCHIE so much crap….her name on the show was IRENE LORENZO….she also starred as the landlady EDNA BABBISH on “LAVERNE AND SHIRLEY.”

here’s the late BETTY GARRETT recently….

2.  GOD BLESS ALL OF YOU….our CHILDREN’S MIRACLE NETWORK radiothon went over BIGGER THAN WE THOUGHT IT WOULD BE….did you hear the total?  i was hoping for $30,000 dollars….our total was….

$61,557….yes, over SIXTY ONE THOUSAND DOLLARS to benefit the children…..

i have always said that my listeners are incredible…..and when you pair up my listeners with the listeners of PHEASANT COUNTRY 103, it’s unbeatable….again, GOD’S BLESSINGS to all of you for being so awesome and helping out….and thanks from the gang at the CHILDREN’S MIRACLE NETWORK…

oh, by the way, here’s yours truly screwing around with the ABERDEEN WINGS hockey team…

3.  OH MY GOODNESS DID WE SEE AN AWESOME MOVIE LAST NIGHT….i really didn’t want to see “THE KING’S SPEECH’, but JEANNIE really wanted to go, so i tagged along…rarely do i like the movies that the critics love…HOWEVER, this movie was INCREDIBLE…

COLIN FIRTH and GEOFFREY RUSH were awesome in their roles….it’s a great movie about history, and a wonderful wonderful movie…by the way, if you want to see the final few days of this movie at CARMIKE in ABERDEEN, you’d better adjust your schedules….it’s only showing at 4pm the next few days, and could be ending this thursday night….you’ll love it….

4.  i was thinking about some old memories of ABERDEEN when i was a child…here are some…

***we knew we were getting closer to town when we saw the statue of the horse at that ranch a couple of miles east of ABERDEEN…

*** i HATED going to the “blue buffalo” restraunt on west sixth avenue…my DAD would always park right by that damn buffalo, just because he knew that TROY AND I were scared of it…

***we used to love going to main street ABERDEEN, and buying some chocolate cigarettes at FANNY FARMER…

***a trip to ABERDEEN wouldn’t be complete without seeing the talking mina bird AMOS…..he was in the basement of WOOLWORTHS, i believe…or it could have been BEN FRANKLIN…

***we always knew we were in ABERDEEN when he saw the big balls up in the air for the SUPER CITY MALL….used to love shopping at TEMPO…

***always got groceries at PRAIRIE MARKET where you could mark your prices on the food…i wonder how many people screwed that store out of money…

***we knew we were on the way to the big city when we crossed over the “old overpass” west of GROTON…the new one isn’t as exciting as the older one…

*** i remember when MCDONALD’S and KENTUCKY FRIED CHICKEN were a TREAT instead of somewhere we eat all the time now…we were THRILLED when MOM AND DAD pulled into the golden arches….

5.  i don’t know how J KRENZ from PHEASANT COUNTRY 103 feels today, but i have been EXHAUSTED after the CHILDREN’S MIRACLE NETWORK RADIOTHON…it was a very long, VERY EMOTIONAL, but very rewarding few days…..however, this weekend into today, i feel completely wiped out….

6.  i had a nice beard going for the past six weeks or so…but i shaved it this morning as a VALENTINE’S gift to my beautiful wife JEANNIE…she never liked it, and i thought that would be a very INEXPENSIVE gift…ha ha

7.  NASA says that an asteroid headed for earth in the next 25 years, could cause massive damage…that is, if CHARLIE SHEEN hasn’t done it already…

8.  the AMERICAN ASSOCIATION FOR NUDE RECREATION has created an I-PHONE app for nudists…the only problem is where the heck to carry it….

9.  there are KING TUT statues missing from EGYPTIAN museums…authorities plan to search LINDSAY LOHAN’S house first…

10.  as of sunday, TIGER WOODS was within one shot of the lead in the DUBAI DESERT CLASSIC in the UNITED ARAB EMIRATES…TIGER’S in the mideast and showed his support for EGYPT when he told a hottie she had nice pyramids….

11.  JOKE OF THE DAY:

An old lady was standing at the railing of the cruise ship holding her hat on tightly so that it would not blow off in the wind.
     A gentleman approached her and said: “Pardon me, madam. I do not intend to be forward, but did you know that your dress is blowing up in this high wind?”
     “Yes, I know,” said the lady, “I need both hands to hold onto this hat.”
     “But, madam, you must know that your privates are exposed!” said the gentleman in earnest.
     The woman looked down, then back up at the man and replied, “Sir, anything you see down there is 85 years old. I just bought this hat yesterday!”

OKAY, HOW ABOUT THIS ONE …..

     One afternoon, a wealthy lawyer was riding in the back of his limousine when he saw two men eating grass by the road side.
     He ordered his driver to stop and he got out to investigate. “Why are you eating grass?” he asked one man.
     “We don’t have any money for food,” the poor man replied.
     “Oh, come along with me then,” instructed the lawyer.
     “But, sir I have a wife and two children!”
     “Bring them along!” replied the lawyer. He turned to the other man and said, “Come with us.”
     “But sir, I have a wife and six children!” the second man answered.
     “Bring them as well!” answered the lawyer as he headed for his limo.
     They all climbed into the limo, which was no easy task considering how many passengers were now in the car.
     Once underway, one of the poor fellows said, “Sir, you are too kind. Thank you for taking all of us with you.”
     The lawyer replied, “No problem. The grass at my house is almost a foot tall.”

ENJOY YOUR VALENTINE’S DAY…GUYS, BE GOOD TO YOUR WOMAN…
