1.  happy birthday wishes are going out this sunday to actress KIM CATTRALL…she will turn 55..that’s right double nickels for KIM….KIM has been around for a long long time…most people know her from “SEX AND THE CITY.”  but she got her start in movies like “MANNEQUIN”, and “PORKY’S.” 

i actually didn’t realize until this morning that KIM played in “PORKY’S.”  i’ve seen the movie dozens of times and didn’t realize it was her…she played the female gym class teacher who was a “howler.” 

she starred with ANDREW MCCARTHY in the movie “MANNEQUIN”, about a store front mannequin that comes to life…

let’s see what KIM CATTRALL looks like today a couple of days before her 55th birthday…still gorgeous…

 

2.  what about her “MANNEQUIN” co-star ANDREW MCCARTHY?  well, he’s still acting after being in the business for a few decades now…

you may remember him as one of the stars of “WEEKEND AT BERNIE’S.”

ANDREW MCCARTHY is now 48 years old…here he is today..

 

3.  well, here comes my reviews of night one of the brown county fair…(REMEMBER, THIS IS ONLY ONE MAN’S OPINION.)

first of all, JOHN ANDERSON…really really good….by far the best part of the night….wish he would have played another hour!!  JOHN ANDERSON has a voice that stands out…you will always know it’s him…he wowed the crowd with hits like “SEMINOLE WIND”, “BLACK SHEEP OF THE FAMILY”, and of course, “SWINGIN’.’

as far as LEANN RIMES goes, she, in my opinion, was a MAJOR disappointment…i have met her before, but had never seen her “live” show…and after last night, i hope to never see it again…SHE TALKED way way way way way too much….she did TOO MANY slow songs…..and didn’t do a many of her hits in the first 45 minute of the show….we left after 40 minutes…very disappointed….

don’t get me wrong, she has an INCREDIBLE voice…one of the best voices in any form of music….but her “live” show needs to be fine tuned for outdoors…her show would have been perfect for the WASHINGTON PAVILLION in SIOUX FALLS, or the JOHNSON FINE ARTS CENTER, here in ABERDEEN…

4.  i walked over to TUBBY’S last night to have another tubby burger, but i got sidetracked at the business in front of them….so, i tried the italian sausage with grilled onions and peppers…OUTSTANDING….plus i HAD to grab some of those deep fried potato chips….they are to die for….

5.  is there anything scarier for a kid than getting on a ride at the fair where you CRAWL INTO  A BEAR’S STOMACH?  luckily the bears are smiling…ha ha…..

6.  new movies this weekend…

CONAN THE BARBARIAN…nope…not going to see it…

FRIGHT NIGHT looks good….it’s kind of a remake of the 80’s FRIGHT NIGHTmovie starring RODDY MCDOWALL…remember the 80’s movie?

 

the new version looks a heck of a lot scarier…

 

7.  text messaging is still the most popular smartphone app…it’s recommended by four of five auto body shops…

8.  a 61 year old man is suing NEW YORK because he was fired as a lifeguard when he refused to wear a speedo during his annual swim test….as far as i’m concerned, any 61 year old man who refuses to wear a speedo IS A HERO….

9.  a jihadist made a death threat to DAVID LETTERMAN..it was the worst top ten list ever…..

10.  JOKE OF THE DAY:

Lenora’s husband has been slipping in and out of a coma for several months, yet his faithful wife stays by his bedside day and night.
    One night, he comes to and motions for her to come closer. He says, “My Lenora, you have been with me through all the bad times. When I got fired, you were there to support me. When my business failed, you were there. When I got shot, you were by my side. When we lost the house, you gave me support. When my health started failing, you were still by my side. You know what, Lenora?”
    “What Dear?” she asked gently.
    “I think you’re bad luck.”

HAVE AN AWESOME WEEKEND EVERYBODY…
