6.  yesterday my MOM and I had to go to WILLMAR, MN. to meet my cousin, who was bringing my DAD home from the hospital in MINNEAPOLIS…my beautiful, darling cousin saved us about 6 hours by meeting us…anyway, when MOM AND I got to BENSON, MN, we were visiting and then my phone rang while i was driving.  we got about 15 miles out of BENSON when i realized we were going the wrong way…MOM said, “are we supposed to be on highway 29?”….and i said…CRAP….so, we delayed our pick up of DAD by a half hour due to my stupidity….

7.  well…here it comes…MITCHELL’S graduation tomorrow…we will make it thru it, but there’s going to be tons and tons of tears….they’ve already started actually…

11.  AL QAEDA released another posthumous audio recording of BIN LADEN…the only difference between the audio and BIN LADEN was that the tape didn’t make much of a splash….

13.  ARNOLD SCHWARZENEGGER’S mistress is supposedly in hiding in the wake of the ongoing scandal…she’s hiding from reporters, paparazzi, and evil terminators from the future…


The owner of a drug store walks in to find a guy leaning heavily against a wall.
     The owner asks the clerk “What’s with that guy over there by the wall?”
     And the clerk goes “Well, he came in here this morning to get something for his cough. I couldn’t find the cough syrup, so I gave him an entire bottle of laxative.”
     And the owner goes “You idiot! You can’t treat a cough with a bottle of laxatives!”
     And the clerk goes, “Of course you can! Look at him; he’s afraid to cough!”
