random thoughts for friday july 15th, 2011



1.  happy birthday wishes today are going out to PATRICK WAYNE, the son of legendary actor JOHN WAYNE…PATRICK was a movie star in his own right, even though he appeared in a number of his dad’s movies…..PATRICK WAYNE appeared in movies like “MCCLINTOCK”, “BIG JAKE”, “THE ALAMO” and many others…he also hosted the game show “TIC-TAC-DOUGH”, back in 1990…

PATRICK WAYNE is celebrating birthday number 72 today…and guess what?  if JOHN WAYNE were alive today, he would be 104…that seems hard to believe…anyway, here are some current pictures of PATRICK WAYNE as he gets ready to celebrate number 72…..


2.  let’s see if you remember this young lady…her name is DIAHANN CARROLL….she played “JULIA” in the tv show of the same name back in the late 60’s….

5.  i mentioned yesterday that the song “TIPTOE THRU THE TULIPS” by TINY TIM was a key part of the movie…..the song and TINY are creepy enough, but they really made is creepy in the movie….here’s a classic video of TINY TIM performing the song on “ROWAN AND MARTIN’S LAUGH-IN”…watch DICK MARTIN’S expressions…they are PRICELESS…


6.  if you catch me lying by the pool at the ABERDEEN AQUATIC CENTER this weekend, please do not try rolling me back into the water…..it’s me..not a whale…even though i probably look like one…i don’t feel quite so bad with my bathing suit on…there was someone there last weekend who was about 65 percent complete of turning into a werewolf…i’ve never seen a hairier man in my life!!

7.  LESSON LEARNED….do not spit out your window going 70 down the highway…..

The strong young man at the construction site was bragging that he could outdo anyone in a feat of strength.
    He made a special case of making fun of one of the older workmen.
     After several minutes, the older worker had enough. “Why don’t you put your money where your mouth is?” he said.
     “I will bet a week’s wages that I can haul something in a wheelbarrow over to that outbuilding that you won’t be able to wheel back.”
     “You’re on, old man,” the bragger replied. “Let’s see what you got.”
     The old man reached out and grabbed the wheelbarrow by the handles. Then, nodded to the young man, he said, “All right. Get in”.
