YEP..IT’S ONE OF THOSE DAYS…

 

1.  today we’re going to find out what happened to “STARSKY AND HUTCH” co-stars DAVID SOUL and PAUL MICHAEL GLASER….they starred in the hit tv show from 1975-1979….the show ran 92 episodes before being cancelled….here they are on the show…

DAVID SOUL and PAUL MICHAEL GLASER have made appearances with each other since the tv show, especially a couple of years ago when “STARSKY AND HUTCH” was made into a full length movie starring BEN STILLER and OWEN WILSON….here’s a picture of them with the new “STARSKY AND HUTCH.”

DAVID SOUL is now 67 years old…his father, DR. RICHARD SOLBERG was a member of the staff of AUGUSTANA COLLEGE in SIOUX FALLS for a couple of years back when DAVID was a lot younger….here’s DAVID SOUL today…

PAUL MICHAEL GLASER became, quite possibly, even more famous back in the 80’s when his wife, ELIZABETH GLASER developed HIV…she died in 1994…PAUL MICHAEL GLASER is now 68 years old….here he is today…

2.  do you remember the huge hit song that DAVID SOUL had while he was on “STARSKY AND HUTCH?”  it was a 1976 number one song called “DON’T GIVE UP ON US.”  here’s the video….this will bring back memories…

3.  today we’re going to find out whatever happened to “GOLDEN GIRLS” star ESTELLE GETTY….she played DOROTHY’S mother SOPHIA on the show…

here daughter on the tv show, BEA ARTHUR was actually, only one year older than ESTELLE who played her mom on the show….here’s ESTELLE GETTY back when she was playing SOPHIA…

ESTELLE GETTY was an accomplished actress in film, theater, and television…after the tv show, she battled lewy body dimentia…she died on july 22nd, 2008, three days ahead of what would have been her 85th birthday…so, if you do the math, she was 84 when she died….SEE HOW THAT WORKS?  here she is in later life…

ESTELLE GETTY is buried in the jewish section of the HOLLYWOOD FOREVER  CEMETARY in HOLLYWOOD, CALIFORNIA…here is her gravesite…

4.  we had a great weekend….we spend saturday and sunday on the pontoon at my brother and sister in law’s at RICHMOND LAKE…yesterday we celebrated JEANNIE and TYLER’S birthdays out there again….there’s really nothing more relaxing than being in a pontoon on a lake with music playing…

5.  because of being at the lake all weekend, we didn’t get a chance to see “FRIENDS WITH BENEFITS” at the theater..however, TYLER went to it and said it was hilarious….we’ll probably go this week….

6.  sad news in the music business over the weekend…singer AMY WINEHOUSE was found dead at the age of 27…..she had a huge hit a couple of years back, ironically called “REHAB”…she battled addictions all of her life….no cause of death has been reported, although an overdose is what many many people are expecting to hear that caused her death….

AMY WINEHOUSE joins the “27 club”  of 27 year old stars who died early….this is super weird…she joins JANIS JOPLIN, JIMI HENDRIX, ROLLING STONES member BRIAN JONES, and rock band NIRVANA lead singer KURT COBAIN…not exactly the group you want to be remembered for, but sadly she joins it…

here’s her number one smash “REHAB.”

the song contains the words that will haunt her fans for a lifetime…”THEY TRIED TO MAKE ME GO TO REHAB, AND I SAID, NO, NO, NO.”  wow….

7.  debt ceiling talks continue in WASHINGTON, D.C.. now they’re talking again…oh wait, they stopped…now they’re talking again…nope, somebody walked out…talks are over for now…now they’re going again….WAKE ME UP WHEN THIS DAMN STUFF IS OVER….

8.  KIM KARDASHIAN is suing OLD NAVY for using a model in a commercial that LOOKS LIKE HER…yep….KIM claims that her looks are her “intellectual property.”  or to be precise, her ONLY intellectual property…..

9.  new rules in the NFL could result in more replays and longer games….on the bright side, some players can post bail and be back to the stadium before the game is over….

10.  this is true….doctors in BRAZIL report that a 22 year old mother had a complely formed nipple on the bottom of HER FOOT….she’s the only woman in the world who wears size 36 D shoes…

11.  POPEYE will return to comic books next year…only this year they’ll make them politically correct….OLIVE OYL will be treated for anorexia, BRUTUS, or BLUTO will be treated for anger management, and POPEYE will be treated for a speech problem…

12.  JOKE OF THE DAY:

There was a man driving down the road behind an 18 wheeler, at every stoplight the trucker would get out of the cab, run back and bang on the trailer door.
     After seeing this at several intersections in a row, the motorist followed him until he pulled into a parking lot.
     When they both had come to a stop, the truck driver once again jumped out and started banging on the trailer door.
     The motorist went up to him and said, “I don’t mean to be nosey, but why do you keep banging on that door?”
     To which the trucker replied, “Sorry, can’t talk now, I have 20 tons of canaries and a 10 ton limit, so I have to keep half of them flying at all times.”

HAVE A WONDERFUL MONDAY MY FRIENDS…
