random thoughts for monday april 2nd, 2012


i hope you didn’t get your butt burned too bad on april fool’s day…i came out okay…i was, however, a little bit worried about what my confirmation kids would do…they told me to watch my back on other days besides april fools day…great…

1.  here come your monday funnies….

this one is funny….

we need one of the following items at our station…

i TOTALLY agree with this next one…ha ha…

2.  happy birthday wishes today are going to “HORSESHACK” from “WELCOME BACK KOTTER.”  his real name is RON PALILLO…he is 63 today…..back in high school when i had my perm, people called me “HORSESHACK.”

here is RON the way you probably remember him…

here’s RON PALILLO today on his 63rd birthday…

oh, by the way, here’s a recent picture of some of the cast members of “WELCOME BACK KOTTER.”  JOHN TRAVOLTA is in there, and GABE KAPLAN who played “KOTTER”, is in the right lower side of the photo…JOHN TRAVOLTA’S eldest sister, ELLEN TRAVOLTA is in the upper right corner…she was on the show for a very short time, and played HORSESHACK’S mommy….

3.  ELLEN TRAVOLTA has always reminded me of LILY TOMLIN….so, i figured we might as well salute LILY TOMLIN today as well…I LOVE THIS WOMAN..she is so hilarious…

your probably will remember some of her famous characters…

remember the little girl named EDITH ANN?

she also played the wise cracking telephone operator named ERNESTINE…

one of my favorite characters was the nosy MRS. JUDITH BEASLEY…

my favorite movie role that LILY TOMLIN appeared in, was with STEVE MARTIN in the hilarious movie “ALL OF ME.”

however, her most famous role was with DOLLY PARTON, JANE FONDA, AND DABNEY COLEMAN in the hit movie “9 TO 5.”

LILY TOMLIN is now 72…here she is recently…

4.  JEANNIE AND I had a blast this weekend…we had our great niece TERYN staying with us…it was nice to have another girl in the house for awhile…we did a lot of fun things including going to a family event  near LANGFORD, hanging out at WYLIE and more…she’s such a beautiful little girl…7 years old…

5.  JEANNIE AND I did get a chance to see the movie we wanted to see this weekend….JULIA ROBERTS starred in “MIRROR MIRROR”, another version of the SNOW WHITE saga….it was really really good….fun movie….it’s nice to see a movie where you can just sit back and enjoy and not have to think so hard.  i strongly recommend this one…..the seven dwarfs are hilarious…

6.  two big soap opera’s debuted on this date in 1956….i had no idea that “AS THE WORLD TURNS” and “THE EDGE OF NIGHT” were that old…i used to watch both of them when i was a lot younger…but my favorite was “DAYS OF OUR LIVES.”  do you remember the logos for these two shows?

7.  we got totally “BUGGED” last night while out walking to highway 281 from WARNER…my goodness, the mosquitos are horrible…we were swarmed during the walk out to the road…it’s funny though, because i told my darling wife on the way back, “wouldn’t it be nice to have about a 25 mile per hour breeze to push the skeeters away?”  wouldn’t you know it, a few seconds later the wind came up and we didn’t have any problems on the way back…this could be a HORRIBLE year for mosquitos….i’m concerned about that…

8. as an april fool’s joke on MITT ROMNEY, his staff send him to a campaign stop, where the room was completely empty…but, to NEW GINGRICH that wouldn’t be  a joke….

9.  scientists say that consuming coffee may make hard workers lazy…i know what they mean…sometimes i’m too lazy to even put the IV in my arm….

10.  at least three people won the huge MEGA MILLIONS jackpot over the weekend…and, by the looks of the car i drove to work today, i didn’t win…

11.  a COLORADO man received five year’s probation for mistakenly shooting a woman whose red mohawk he mistook for a bird that had been harassing his cats….the woman survived, but now she’s one of the last mohawkans….

12.  GEORGE LUCAS told TMZ that he will never ever make any more STAR WARS sequels…apparently his bank called and said “c’mon george, please..no more money!!”

13.  in MISSISSIPPI, rocker JERRY LEE LEWIS got married for the seventh time….ready for some confusion?  his new wife was once married to one of his cousins….and JERRY LEE was once married to that same cousin’s sister…hmmm..i’ve never been to MISSISSIPPI, but i assume that it’s okay to marry someone you’re not related to, right?

14.  JOKE OF THE DAY:  (one of my all time favorites)

A young boy had just gotten his driver’s permit and asked his father if they could discuss his use of the car.
    His father said he’d make a deal with his son.  “You bring your grades up from a C to a B average, study your Bible a little, get your hair cut and we’ll talk about the car.”
    The boy thought about that for a moment, decided he’d settle for the offer and they agreed on it.
    After about six weeks his father said, “Son, I’ve been real proud. You brought your grades up and I’ve observed that you have been studying your Bible, but I’m real disappointed you didn’t get your hair cut.”
    The young man paused a moment then said,  “You know, Dad, I’ve been thinking about that, and I’ve noticed in my studies of the Bible that Samson had long hair, John the Baptist had long hair, Moses had long hair and there’s even a strong argument that Jesus had long hair.”
    To this his father replied, “Did you also notice they all walked everywhere they went?”
