random thoughts for thursday june 30th, 2011



1.  happy birthday wishes are in order today for actor DAVID GARRISON…you may remember him when he played STEVE RHODES, the pesky neighbor on “MARRIED WITH CHILDREN.”  here he is with his tv wife, AMANDA BEARSE…they are on the right side of the picture…

DAVID GARRISON turns 59 years old today….recently he starred in the hit tv show “LAW AND ORDER.”  here’s DAVID GARRISON today on his 59th birthday…

and by the way, just in case you’re wondering what his tv wife looks like today, here’s a current picture of AMANDA BEARSE, who played his crackpot wife MARCY on “MARRIED WITH CHILDREN.”


2.  have you ever wondered whatever happened to BRETT SOMERS of “MATCH GAME” fame? 

long before the game show, BRETT SOMERS appeared in such movies as “THE SEVEN YEAR ITCH.”  here’s an early picture of her..

BRETT SOMERS appeared as a regular on “MATCH GAME” back in the 70’s, along with making guest appearances on many tv shows…did you know that BRETT was married to actor JACK KLUGMAN?  yep…they weren’t together for years, but never divorced….

BRETT SOMERS died of cancer in 2007 at the age of 83…she’s buried in a very modest grave…it always amazes me that HOLLYWOOD stars with a lot of money end up with very small graves…here is BRETT’S…

and here’s a “late in her life” photo of BRETT SOMERS…


3.  WOW DOES OUR VAN LOOK AWESOME…we just got our “yellow van” back yesterday from GEFFDOG DESIGNS and they did an incredible job “wrapping” our van…

be watching for it on a street near you!!

4.  so, i bought this bright orange polo shirt the other day, and i’m wearing it today with my black pants..i love orange shirts, mostly because i’m a TENNESSEE VOLUNTEERS fan, and they are ALL ORANGE BABY…well, it started out wonderful this morning…JEANNIE was up for awhile while i was home, and her first comment was “YOU LOOK LIKE A POPSICLE…..ha ha…nice…

5.  wow…we have a busy busy weekend…we’re going to try and catch up on some movies at CARMIKE, plus saturday night a big group of us are going to eat at BOB’S BAITSHOP in GETTYSBURG…we’ve never eaten there, but i hear they have excellent food..it’s just that the word “bait shop” scares me…there’s nothing worse than eating a steak with the smell of minnows in the air…but i’ve been told that’s not the case, so we’ll see….

6.  then on sunday we’re going out to my brother and sister in laws at RICHMOND LAKE for our annual FOURTH OF JULY party…we have so much fun, but i get so nervous when all the kids are running around shooting fireworks…OH GREAT…I’VE BECOME THAT WORRIED OLD PERSON….crap..i had hoped that wouldn’t happen until my 70’s…ha ha..plus we have the boat parade on sunday..always love that…

7.  a survey by TRIPADVISOR found that 78 percent of AMERICANS think it’s okay for women to go topless at the beach…umm..let me guess….99 percent of TRIPADVISOR users are MEN….

8.  a LAWRENCE, MASSACHUSETTS  city worker was caught allegedly trying to steal city property by leaving work with SIX ROLLS OF TOILET PAPER, SHOVED DOWN HIS PANTS…a chase ensued with the guy giving up to police…he said he quit because he was “totally wiped out.”  (maybe he didn’t, but it sure sounds good.)

9.  the KANSAS CITY ROYALS are using a six man rotation for pitching….six man rotation…why not? it seems to work for the KARDASHIAN sisters….

10.  NEWSWEEK has a cover imagining what PRINCESS DIANA would look like at the age of 50….and i sit around imagining what it would be like if NEWSWEEK actually did NEWS…

11.  singer TOM PETTY has demanded that U.S. presidential candidate MICHELLE BACHMAN stop using his song “AMERICAN GIRL’ at her rallies…in a related story, MATTEL sent a cease and desist order to MITT ROMNEY to stop imitating thier KEN doll….

12.  i don’t think i’m going to see the new “TRANSFORMERS” movie…if i want to see a bunch of screaming, yelling and robots, i’ll just watch the presidential race…


A guy came into a bar one day and said to the barman “Give me six double vodkas.”
The barman says “Wow! you must have had one hell of a day.”
“Yes, I’ve just found out my older brother is gay.”
The next day the same guy came into the bar and asked for the same drinks.
When the bartender asked what the problem was today, the answer came back, “I’ve just found out that my younger brother is gay too!”
On the third day the guy came into the bar and ordered another six double vodkas.
The bartender said “Jeez! Doesn’t anybody in your family like women?”
“Yeah, my wife…”
