random thoughts for tuesday september 6th, 2011






1.  happy birthday wishes are going out today to actress JANE CURTIN, who turns 64 today…..you may remember her from her start on ‘SATURDAY NIGHT LIVE.’

here she is with the cast, and with DAN ACKROYD and LARRAINE NEWMAN in “THE CONEHEADS.”

JANE CURTIN also starred with SUSAN ST. JAMES in the CBS sitcom “KATE AND ALLIE.”

and, of course, you remember her with JOHN LITHGOW on the hit tv show “THIRD ROCK FROM THE SUN.”

and here’s JANE CURTIN today at 64….

2.  today we’re going to find out whatever happened to crazy woman, JOANNE WORLEY from “LAUGH IN”….she is turning 74 today…remember her?  here she is on the show. the first one is with “BONANZA” star LORNE GREENE….

after “LAUGH IN”, she went on to numerous roles in tv, movies, and theater…among the most famous is she was the voice of the “WARDROBE” in the hit movie “BEAUTY AND THE BEAST.”

JOANNE WORLEY is 74 today, and is still active in many circles in HOLLYWOOD…here she is today…

and here she is with BETTY WHITE and LORETTA SWIT…

3.  well, it’s day number six of the shake diet……so far i have lost almost FIVE POUNDS….it would have been more if it wasn’t for that dreaded FAIR FOOD in HURON..ha ha….i also wasn’t a very good boy yesterday either…but today, i’m back, going strong…trying to make 10 pounds off by the 15th….i think i’ll make it…it’s fun to look at the scale every night before i go to bed and see the number go down!!!

4.  speaking of the SOUTH DAKOTA STATE FAIR, we had a blast friday night and sunday night going to the entertainment….i’ll give you the best starting with number one…

there’s nobody better on the legends circuit than country legend DON WILLIAMS…

DON looks older and a bit thinner and more frail, but his voice hasn’t changed since the 70’s…and that’s very rare for someone who’s been on the road for over 40 years…he was OUTSTANDING…all he does is sit on his stool and sing…..and once in awhile say things like “MERCY”, or “YOU GUYS ARE TERRIFIC.”  as my friend KIM said on facebook, “MY FAVORITE CONCERT EVER WAS AEROSMITH UNTIL I SAW DON WILLIAMS.”  that about sums it up…he is jointly, my wife and my favorite singer, and we will go ANYWHERE to see him again…

by far the next best was “THE LITTLE RIVER BAND”, when they played on sunday night…

we stood down front with our friends and sang EVERY SONG that they played……they were so awesome..this is the fourth time we have seen them, and we would go back time and time again….they do the concerts right…they play hit after hit after hit, and not throw in 8 songs from a “new album” that nobody has heard….

next is SAMMY KERSHAW…i had never seen SAMMY in concert before, but i really really liked him….he sang two songs off of his recent album, but they were GOOD songs…..and one was even recognizeable as a remake…..he seemed to have the crowd in his hand most of the time, but mostly when he played “THIRD RATE ROMANCE”, and his first hit “CADILLAC STYLE.”

i would definetly go see SAMMY KERSHAW again….the one thing he said that i TOTALLY AGREE WITH is that back in the 70’s, 80’s, and 90’s, you could hear a country song and for the most part know who it is…but today, you can’t tell one from another…..PREACH ON, SAMMY….

and sunday night’s headliner was CHEAP TRICK…i’m naming them fourth, not because they weren’t good, but because i liked the other three better….CHEAP TRICK ROCKED THE CROWD, BABY…

once again, i’m so impressed with lead singer ROBIN ZANDER’S voice…he hasn’t lost a bit……and THEY WERE LOUD…i, seriously, just started getting my hearing back last night…..we didn’t know some of their songs, but when they did their big hits, we rocked out!!!

my hat is off to the staff at the SOUTH DAKOTA STATE FAIR, for putting on some incredible talent…a very well run organization…..thanks to CANDI for the nice things she does for radio people, too…..

5.  yesterday, JEANNIE AND I finally went to see the movie “THE HELP.”

folks, if you haven’t seen this movie, GO SEE IT BEFORE IT ENDS…it deeply saddens me that this crap actually happened back in the south not that many years ago…..the cast is fantastic, the story is ultra fantastic, and you end up laughing and crying……TREMENDOUS MOVIE…HIGHLY RECOMMENDED…

6.  JEANNIE AND I went walking at WYLIE last night….beautiful night for a walk…i love the area with all the state flags, but the one thing that i laughed at out there was a pen with, i don’t remember if they were reindeer or what, but one of them was HUGE with a great big rack on him….(it’s a guy, gentlemen….get your mind out of the gutter)…..anyway, the  BIG GUY would walk up to the trough where the other smaller ones were eating, and he would walk close to the eating area, pushing the smaller ones away….not hurting them, just being the “big buck on campus” and pushing his weight around..he did it the entire time we were there…..

isn’t that just like life?  you know the people…think they’re bigger than they are, and love to push people around just because they can…we’ve all had people like that in our lives…..too bad they aren’t caged up…

7.  the FDA is suggesting a registry for women who have had breast implants…they already have a book like that in HOLLYWOOD…it’s called every man’s “black book.”

8.  scientists beleive that early man used tools up to 1.76 million years ago…and their neighbors are still waiting to get them back…

9.  a woman from TEXAS is accused of hiding a stolen check in the crack of her butt….and this may be one of the main reasons why nobody takes checks anymore….

10.  in ARIZONA, state prisons are charging 25 dollars per person to visit inmates…this isn’t going to work…if i want to spend money to see criminals, i’ll just go to a political fundraiser…

11.  a lot of people are upset of the video going around of a FOUR YEAR OLD GIRL driving a car…hey, what’s the big deal? she has to get to work somehow…

12.  singer ALICE COOPER said that LADY GAGA is the female version of him….wait a minute…i thought that LADY GAGA was the female version of ELTON JOHN…no wait…CLAY AIKEN was the female version of ELTON JOHN, or was it ADAM LAMBERT…damn, i’m confused…

13.  KISS lead singer GENE SIMMONS is going to marry his girlfriend SHANNON TWEED after spending the last 28 years with her…call me old fashioned, but i think they should get to know each other better first…


Having been married ten years and still living in an apartment, the wife would often complain about anything, as she was tired of saving every penny to buy a “dream home.”
    Trying to placate her, the husband found a new apartment, within their budget. However, after the first week, she began complaining again.
    “I don’t like this place at all” she said. “There are no curtains in the bathroom. The neighbors can see me every time I take a bath.”
    “Don’t worry.” replied her husband. “If the neighbors DO see you, THEY’LL buy curtains.”


     While attending a marriage seminar on communication, Wally and his wife Sue listened to an instructor declare “It is essential that husbands and wives know the things that are important to each other.”
     He addressed the men; “Do you know your wife’s favorite flower?”
     Wally leaned over and touched his wife’s arm gently and whispered “Pillsbury All Purpose, isn’t it honey”?
    And thus began Wally’s life of celibacy.
