random thoughts for thursday august 4th, 2011

WE’RE GETTING CLOSER!!!!!!!!!!!!!

1.  today, i thought we’d check into the life of “MY THREE SONS” characters….

first of all, let’s start out with the theme song…EVERYBODY HUM  ALONG TO THE TUNE…

http://youtu.be/D3nLLI-CilM

MY THREE SONS starred actor FRED MACMURRAY as STEVE DOUGLAS…he was the patriarch of four sons, although one mysteriously disappears during the series…ha ha

actor WILLIAM DEMAREST played the cranky UNCLE CHARLIE on the show…..

.

many of you may remember that WILLIAM DEMAREST wasn’t the only “relative” to live with the family…actor WILLIAM FRAWLEY who is best known as FRED MERTZ on “I LOVE LUCY”, starred as the maternal grandfather from 1962-1965.  he then got ill and was replaced by WILLIAM DEMAREST….

here’s MR. FRAWLEY on “I LOVE LUCY”, and on “MY THREE SONS.” the “LUCY” photo is, of course, with VIVIAN VANCE, who played his wife ETHEL…

WILLIAM FRAWLEY died in 1966….

WILLIAM DEMAREST died in 1983….he was 91 years old…

 

and the PAPA of the family, actor FRED MACMURRAY died in 1991 at the age of 83….

hey, isn’t that crazy?  one died in 83 at age 91..the other dies in 91 at age 83….cool…

the three, i mean FOUR brothers from MY THREE SONS have gotten together once in awhile for a reunion…here’s a recent picture…

2.  i decided to do a “MY THREE SONS” tribute today, because one of the stars for a couple of seasons has a birthday today…actress TINA COLE, played the beautiful KATIE DOUGLAS, who married ROBBIE DOUGLAS on the show…

TINA COLE turns 68 today..here she is recently…

and in this picture, she apparently ran smack dab into a box of christmas decorations…

3.  football legend and movie star BUBBA SMITH died yesterday at the age of 66…no cause has been listed for his death…he played in the NFL in the 60’s and 70’s, on teams like the BALTIMORE COLTS, OAKLAND RAIDERS, AND HOUSTON OILERS…

BUBBA SMITH is best known for playing MOOSE HIGHTOWER in the “POLICE ACADEMY” movies….

REST IN PEACE, BUBBA…

4.  IT’S TATTOO DAY!!!  this afternoon i get my first tattoo, providing i don’t pass out, or run out of there crying..ha ha..i’m having it done at SHRUNKEN HEAD TATTOOS….as i have mentioned, it will be filmed and put on the SUNNY 97.7 website sometime soon….i’ll hopefully have pictures of my new ‘tat’ on the blog tomorrow…WISH ME LUCK…

5.  last night we had a delicious supper….we had TURKEY BURGERS and CORN ON THE COB…it was our first time this season having corn on the cob, and we might as well not have anymore, because last night’s corn was PERFECT…absolutely scrumptious….well, anyway, as JEANNIE was preparing supper, i was playing on the internet…BIG SHOCK…and while on the net, i noticed a breaking story about CARGILL taking back like 36,000 pounds of ground turkey because of salmonella…..so, i walked to the fridge, looked at the meat, and sure enough, CARGILL was stamped on the back…the recall said that if you heat it to 165 or over it will be okay…so we cooked it even past that and ate it…IT WAS GREAT…and so far, no side effects…other than i gobbled in my sleep and now i hate thanksgiving…..

6.  i give up at BAGGO…that’s the beanbag game where you try to throw beanbags into the hole in the middle of a board?  well, last night we had my brother TREVOR over for supper, and after the meal we decided to play BAGGO…keep in mind, TREVOR is the REIGNING CHAMPION OF BAGGO IN MILLER…he won the contest a few weeks ago….and last night i found out why..HE MURDERED ME AT THE GAME….and he would always say things like “you’re playing pretty good,” or “wow, you’re getting lots of points.”  yeah, the problem is, when i would get 10 points, he wound get 12…if i got 6 points, he would get 10…you can’t win that way…ha ha

7.  the ADAM AND EVE sex novelty products company has donated 50 thousand dollars to help fund a position at the UNIVERSITY OF MINNESOTA MEDICAL SCHOOL…umm..i think the word “position” is a bad choice in this story…

8.  researchers in the midwest are using cattle to test the effects of altitude on the heart…what the heck are they doing?  testing the cow’s heart beat right before the parachute opens up?

9.  a NORTHWESTERN UNIVERSITY law student went into labor during her bar exam, but FINISHED the test before giving birth two hours later…apparently she put a restraining order on the baby…

10.  KELSEY GRAMMAR said he might run for public office…there’s no way he will win…his opponents have HOURS AND HOURS of video of KELSEY drinking in a bar…oh wait…that’s “CHEERS.”

11.  rumors that JUSTIN BIEBER and SELENA GOMEZ have broken up are apparently not true…however, their relationship is suffering do to financial problems…they are almost bankrupt from buy hair care products…

12.  CBS will kill off CHARLIE SHEEN’S character, CHARLIE HARPER , on the upcoming season of ‘TWO AND A HALF MEN.’  i hope he’s not an organ donar…NOBODY is going to want his liver, and the other organ you can’t donate….

13.  a new GERMAN internet site allows you to rate your priest….”FORGIVE ME FATHER FOR I HAVE CRITIQUED.”

14.  JOKE OF THE DAY:

last year this blonde decided to replace all of her windows in her home with expensive double-pane, energy efficient windows…a few months after they were done, the contractor gave the blonde an angry phone call…..he was complaining that the work had been done over a year ago, and he hadn’t recieved a payment…the blonde told him, “don’t treat me like i’m stupid just because i’m a blonde.  you told me last year that after one year these windows would pay for themselves, and HELLO, IT’S BEEN A YEAR.”

OOOH..THAT’S A GOOD ONE…HAVE A GREAT THURSDAY EVERYBODY…
