random thoughts for tuesday may 31st, 2011



1.  today, one of the most beautiful women in the world turns 46 years old….i’m talking about BROOKE SHIELDS….i have had a mad crush on her ever since her early years of movies…she’s an actress, a model, a mommy, she does everything….here’s BROOKE SHIELDS in her early years….before “BLUE LAGOON.”

her mother used to get punished by the media for BROOKE’S  sexy and racy photos as a child…

and then came the huge hit movie ‘THE BLUE LAGOON”, which propelled BROOKE into superstardom….the movie co-starred CHRISTOPHER ATKINS…

by the way, are you wondering what CHRISTOPHER ATKINS looks like today?  well, he’s now 50 years old…and still acting…

and here’s our birthday girl, BROOKE SHIELDS today at 46….GORGEOUS….

2.  today we’re going to find out whatever happened to ELLY MAY and JETHRO from “THE BEVERLY HILLBILLIES.”  first of all, let’s check out actress DONNA DOUGLAS who played ELLY MAY on the show….

DONNA DOUGLAS was a beauty queen in her early years, winning titles of “MISS BATON ROUGE”, and “MISS NEW ORLEANS.”  she appeared in toothpaste commercials, and was a guest star on many tv shows, but her big break came with “THE BEVERLY HILLBILLIES.”

3.  meanwhile, MAX BAER, JR., played the part of playboy JETHRO BODINE on the show….he is the son of legendary boxer MAX BAER…he appeared in many different shows, until his big break…

today, MAX BAER, JR., is a millionaire, if not a billionaire….in his later years, he became part of the gambling circuit in LAS VEGAS and has made his fortune from that……he is a developer and a major business brain….

MAX BAER, JR., is now 73 years old…here he is today…one is with an adoring fan…


4.  it was MOVIE MANIA this weekend in our household….after being exhausted from graduation week, we decided to take it a bit easy this weekend, so we went to a couple of movies, and watched a couple at home…here my critiques……

first we saw “PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN, ON STRANGER TIDES.”  JOHNNY DEPP is back in this great movie…JEANNIE AND I both loved this movie….JOHNNY DEPP as “CAPTAIN JACK SPARROW”, is just a riot….totally recommend this one…

yesterday afternoon, we decided to go see “HANGOVER 2”, the follow up to the amazingly funny, over the top comedy from a couple of years ago…..when we are at home, JEANNIE AND I watch the original one a lot…we love it….so……………..

I HATED THIS ONE….i thought this was a total waste of two hours…JEANNIE thought it was okay, but nothing great….it was almosted modeled after the first one, only this time it featured A MONKEY….i don’t know…i just wasn’t impressed, and i think i only laughed about 7 or 8 times…..very disappointing in my opinion…

yesterday morning at home, MITCHELL sat down to watch a movie called “BLUE VALENTINE”, starring RYAN GOSELING and MICHELLE WILLIAMS…it’s a love story about a couple and how they go together, and how they fall apart at the end…it was a very good movie…didn’t really care for the movie, but it was very emotional, and you really felt for the people in the movie…..it showed how another person can get involved in a marriage and totally screw things up….this is a dark movie, but pretty entertaining….

and last night, JEANNIE AND I ended the weekend on a HIGH NOTE…we watched the WILL FERRELL and MARK WAHLBERG cop comedy called ‘THE OTHER GUYS.’  i have mentioned before, that i’m not a huge WILL FERRELL fan anymore, but he is HILARIOUS in this role…not so over the top……if you haven’t seen this one, you might want to check it out…


5.  it didn’t slow me down this weekend, but i spent the entire weekend under the weather…it started out late friday with a scratchy throat…saturday it was in my throat…sunday and monday it moved into my chest and caused some tough breathing, especially with the humidity outside…pretty sure it was allergies, but i’m feeling a bit better today…..

6.  i don’t know why a person even tries to eat when you can’t taste anything….when i was sick this weekend, it just about killed my taste buds, but yet i crammed food down the old pie hole all weekend long….

7.  i was sucking on cough drops late one night this weekend when everybody else was in bed.  i was just sitting there watching tv, enjoying the cough drop, when all of a sudden it got caught in one of my fillings, and pulled part of the filling out….damn….and then i bit into the filling…that was even worse…ha ha

8.  FACEBOOK founder MARK ZUCKERBERG says that he “only eats what he kills.”  so, apparently for breakfast this morning he’s having all my free time…

9.  DALLAS COWBOYS quarterback TONY ROMO got married this past saturday night…attendance was low, though, because COWBOY’S owner JERRY JONES got into the church and LOCKED OUT all of the players….

10.  CHARLIE SHEEN is selling his LOS ANGELES mansion for $7.2 million dollars….nice place….the electrical system’s up to date…and CHARLIE just put in all new pipes….some of them haven’t even been smoked in yet….

11.  ***singer AMY WINEHOUSE is back in rehab again…

****singer SEAN KINGSTON is in critical condition after hitting a wall with his jet ski….

****SNOOKI is in custody in ITALY…

man, some people just can’t adapt to OPRAH retiring…


Homer was working at the lumberyard, pushing a tree through the buzz saw, and accidentally sliced off all ten of his fingers.
     He rushes to the emergency room. The doctor who examines him is really disturbed at such a tragedy. “Oh, yuck! Well, that’s all right, Homer, give me the fingers and I’ll see what I can do for you.”
     “I haven’t got the fingers,” Homer said, gasping through his pain.
     The doctor said, “What do you mean, you haven’t got the fingers? It’s 2011. We’ve got microsurgery and all kinds of incredible techniques. I could have reattached the fingers. You’d be as good as new! Why didn’t you bring the fingers?”
     “I couldn’t pick ’em up.”


    A Baptist Preacher was seated next to a cowboy on a flight to Texas.
    After the plane took off, the cowboy asked for a whiskey and soda, which was brought and placed before him.
    The flight attendant then asked the preacher if he would like a drink.
    Appalled, the preacher replied, “I’d rather be tied up and taken advantage of by women of ill-repute, than let liquor touch my lips.”
    The cowboy then handed his drink back to the attendant and said, “Me too, I didn’t know we had a choice.”
