random thoughts for monday august 8th, 2011

GET READY GANG, IT’S MONDAY…

 

1.  happy birthday wishes are going out today to JON from “CHIPS”…that’s right, LARRY WILCOX is having a birthday today…he turns 64…LARRY starred opposite ERIC ESTRADA in the hit tv show “CHIPS.”  here they are…

even though ERIC ESTRADA was the “women’s dream” of the pair, i always thought that LARRY WILCOX was the “friend next door” type person, and i actually thought he was better looking than ERIC….does that make it weird that i said that?  ha ha

anyway, LARRY WILCOX is 64 today…and we salute him…here’ s a couple of picture of him today, including an updated picture of him and ERIC ESTRADA…

 

2.  speaking of ERIC ESTRADA, am i the only one who thought that one of the band members of “THE KNACK”, looked like ERIC?  ever since i picked up the album “GET THE KNACK”, i have thought that…you be the judge…he’s the guy on the left…

obviously, it’s not ERIC ESTRADA, but it does resemble him…speaking of THE KNACK, whatever happened to one of the most famous woman in rock history?  SHARONA ALPERIN was the “SHARONA” from “MY SHARONA.”  that song is one of the biggest hits in rock n roll history, and it propelled SHARONA ALPERIN to “legendary” status with boys and men everywhere….remember her?

SHARONA ALPERIN is now a real estate agent in the LOS ANGELES area, and is still contacted by people wanting to talk about the song which was written about her…here is SHARONA today…

2.  speaking of THE KNACK, the band’s founder and lead singer died february 14th, 2010 at the age of 57 after battling cancer….he’s second from the left on their hit album which you can see above…here’s another picture of him back in the successful years of his band…

here’s a picture during his last years on earth…

and did you know that lead singer DOUG FIEGER has a famous brother, too?  that’s right…attorney GEOFFREY FIEGER is his brother….he’s best known for representing DR. JACK KERVORKIAN…

 

3.  okay, what would a tribute to THE KNACK be without a video of the awesome hit song?  here’s MY SHARONA…

4.  well, i’ve always known that my family was a bunch of rednecks, and they proved it saturday..ha ha….we went out to my brother and sister in laws on saturday, and noticed them out on the water on inflatable mattresses….only they were moving by themselves…turns out they were “carpooning.”  what is that?  they would use a fishing rod and catch and carp, and let the carp drag them around the lake…it was absolutely hilarious…then they would cut the carp loose and get back to normal life….it was great…

5.  last night, JEANNIE AND I took in a movie, and decided to go to the RYAN REYNOLDS, JASON BATEMAN movie called “THE CHANGEUP.”  we’ve always wanted to see that movie since we first saw the previews…THAT MOVIE IS DIRTY…tons of swearing, and lots of umm…woman’s chest areas being shown….this premise of switching identies has been done to death, but i have heard critics saying that this one is different…no it isn’t….it has many funny moments, but the swearing just overtook the movie….

6.  by the way, ladies answer this…why do you spend 30 minutes fixing your hair before you go to a movie in a COMPLETELY DARK THEATER…is it worth spending a half hour for the 30 second walk from the car into theater?  i don’t think so….

7.  yesterday we had a blast watching a “HOT IN CLEVELAND” marathon on TVLAND….this is one of our favorite shows on television, and truthfully, i think the ensemble of actresses is even better than “DESIGNING WOMEN”….

and, of course, BETTY WHITE is a national treasure, so it makes it that much more fun…and she’s HILARIOUS in the show…

8. everyone is wondering what the stock market will do this week after last week’s big plunge…it’s the same wonderment you get from watching LINDSAY LOHAN walk into a jewelry store with an empty purse…

9.  the BILL AND MELINDA GATES FOUNDATION gave away $2.5 BILLION DOLLARS last year….CONGRESS isn’t impressed…they give that much away by breakfast…

10.  STANDARD AND POOR’S has downgraded the UNITED STATES credit rating to “AA”, down from “AAA”….to put it in normal people’s terms, it means that if the UNITED STATES wanted to buy a car, they would have to have CANADA co-sign with them…

11.  reports say that the MIAMI DOLPHINS are flirting with the idea of bringing in BRETT FAVRE…and we all know how good BRETT FAVRE is at flirting…

12.  JOKE OF THE DAY:

how do you know when you’re staying at a redneck hotel?  it’s when you call the front desk to tell them that “i’ve got a leak in the sink” and they said, “alright, go ahead.”

HAVE A GREAT MONDAY EVERYBODY..
