3.  today we’re going to find out whatever happened to actress NATALIE SHAFER….she played MRS. HOWELL, or “LOVEY” on “GILLIGAN’S ISLAND.”  on the show, she was the rich wife of millionaire THURSTON HOWELL, III….NATALIE SHAFER was an actress long before this hit show…

but of course, her role on ‘GILLIGAN’S ISLAND’ is what really made her a household name…

did you know that “GILLIGAN’S ISLAND” only ran for three seasons?  yep, and only 98 episodes….seems like when you watch the reruns that there was about 10 seasons…by the way, GILLIGAN’S ISLAND was considered a FLOP during it’s regular run, but became one of the biggest shows EVER in syndication…

NATALIE SHAFER died april 10th, 1991 at the age of 90…here ashes were scattered in the PACIFIC OCEAN…

here’s NATALIE SHAFER in her last few years…

4.  there are a couple of movies opening up this weekend nationwide…first of all, it’s “THE HANGOVER 2″….

my son TYLER went to see the midnight release of this movie, and said it was “okay.”  personally, i hate it when they take great movies like “THE HANGOVER”, and ruin it with sequels…..this one looks about the same, only the added a MONKEY….we’ll have to see..i’m sure it will do great in theaters…

the other movie coming out is JACK BLACK in “KUNG FU PANDA 2.”  are we going to see it?  that would be a resounding no…

5.  JEANNIE AND I were talking about this weekend, and in addition to a bunch of household projects, we are planning on catching up on movies at the theater…we usually go to movies a lot, but we’ve been so busy this year….and YES, i’m sure we’ll go to see “HANGOVER 2.”  also we’ll see the new “PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN” movie…we really wanted to see “WATER FOR ELEPHANTS,” but we missed it by a couple of days…

6.  lately i’ve been so doggone tired that i can’t stay awake when i get home in the afternoon..i plant my butt on the couch and usually sleep for an hour or two…yesterday i went home and was very tired, but decided to go out and mow the lawn and trim up the yard….I FELT INCREDIBLE…really gave me a burst of energy…then last night, JEANNIE AND I went out and walked close to two hours…i need to do a lot more of that….i need to lose some of this BABY FAT…..ha ha

7.  RAIN is forecast all weekend long….CRAP…

8.  the air traffic controllers union said that controller trainees are placing a serious strain on the air traffic system..i know what they mean..i heard that sometimes it takes as many as THREE TRAINEES to get the fitted sheet on the mattress so they can sleep on the job..

9.  parents of children at a school in ENGLAND, have been asked to stop being so casual by wearing PAJAMAS to drop off their kids at school…hey, give them a break..they’re probably just going to their job as an air traffic controller…OH NO I DIDN’T…OH YES I DID!!!

10.  after the UNITED STATES put sanctions on his country, VENEZUELA’S oil chief said that the UNITED STATES can “GO STRAIGHT TO HELL.”  sorry dude, that’s impossible…we can’t afford gas to go ANYWHERE…

11.  basketball star KRIS HUMPHRIES gave a 20.5 carat round diamond engagement ring to KIM KARDASHIAN…basketballs…the diamond…KIM KARDASHIAN…he’s obviously obsessed with large, round things…

12.  LIBYA’S MOAMMAR GADAFFI is asking for a deal where he can remain in his country, serving as a ceremonial head of state, but without any real authority….hmm…kinda sounds like me in my house…

13.   JOKE OF THE DAY:

A woman went to a pet shop and immediately spotted a large, beautiful parrot. The sign on the cage read $50.00.
     “Why so little?” she asked the pet store owner.
     The owner looked at her and said, “Look, I should tell you first that this bird used to live in a house of prostitution and sometimes says some vulgar stuff.”
     The woman thought about this but decided she had to have the bird anyway. She took it home and hung the bird’s cage up in her living room and waited for it to say something.
     The bird looked around the room, then at her, and said, “New house, new madam.”
     The woman was a bit shocked at the implication but then thought, “That’s not so bad.”
     When her two teen-age daughters returned from school the bird saw them and said, “New house, new madam, new hookers.”
     The girls and the woman were a bit offended, but then began to laugh about the situation.
     Moments later, the woman’s’ husband, Keith, came home from work.
     The bird looked at him and said, “Hi Keith!”

HAVE A SAFE AND HAPPY MEMORIAL DAY WEEKEND EVERYBODY…
