random thoughts for monday april 9th, 2012


the first thing i want to do is wish a belated happy birthday to my baby sister KRISTA…she had her birthday yesterday while we were all together for EASTER….HAPPY BIRTHDAY SWEETHEART!!

here’s my sis KRISTA with my beautiful MAMA…

1.  here come your monday funnies….

hmm….my kind of workout….

wow…i wish i had more of these coupons….

i know a few people who fit into the next category…

2.  happy birthday wishes are going out to MAMA WALTON, actress MICHAEL LEARNED…she turns 73 today…she was such a kind, loving, beautiful mother on “THE WALTON’S.”

here’s MICHAEL LEARNED today at 73….

here’s the cast of “THE WALTONS”…

this should make you feel old…’THE WALTONS” debuted on tv FOURTY ONE YEARS AGO….yikes….

here’s a recent photo of  the kids and parents….

3.  remember this line…

“i will just stay in the boat while JIM jumps into the water to swim with the alligators.”  that was ALMOST something that would have been said by MARLIN PERKINS on “MUTUAL OF OMAHA’S WILD KINGDOM.”  well, his counterpart JIM FOWLER turns 80 years old today…can you believe that?  here he is a few years back…

here’s JIM FOWLER today at 80…..

4.  do you remember the host MARLIN PERKINS?  here he is with JIM on the famous show….

MARLIN PERKINS died on june 14th, 1986 at the age of 81….

5.  what an incredible GOOD FRIDAY service at ST. JOHN’S IN HECLA on friday night….i always love this service, because it’s so emotional surrounding the crucifixion of JESUS….the service was fantastic, but the best part was the ending…..all of the church lights went out, except for a small spotlight at the front of the church…three of my confirmation girls walked slowly up the aisle wearing complete black…they got in front of the spotlight, and then another one of my church girls started playing “WERE YOU THERE WHEN THEY CRUCIFIED MY LORD.”  my confirmation girls did the motions to the song…i stood in the back with tears coming out of my eyes…it was beautiful…heard lots of comments on that….our church secretary PAM draws up  tremendous services, and this was one of the best i have seen in my eight years in HECLA…after the song was done, people could stay and pray, or leave quietly…it was amazing….

6.  HOLY WEEK took it’s toll on me….i had a pastor friend tell me years ago that if you can make it thru HOLY WEEK you can make it thru anything….i was up in HECLA wednesday, thursday, friday, and sunday……in addition to the church services, i had a funeral and confirmation…..i hardly left the couch on saturday…completely exhausted…..

7.  my friend JEFF BAHR’S blog has ended at the AMERICAN NEWS….this upsets me….JEFF had a really good blog that had lots of fun stuff in it….he always came up with stuff that i never thought about, and i would laugh out loud reading it…sounds like it was a management decision…not a very smart one though, in my opinion….

8.  an upscale mattress store in NEW YORK CITY’S “SOHO” neighborhood created a nap room where ANYONE is welcome to come off the street and take a test nap, with no strings attached…the store is called “BEDBUGS R US.”

9.  a MUNCIE, INDIANA woman was arrested for allegedly severing her boyfriends manhood….the funny part is what hospital he was taken to…no kidding..he was taken to BALL MEMORIAL HOSPITAL….( you can’t make stuff like that up)

10.  “60 MINUTES” interviewer MIKE WALLACE died over the weekend at 93….or as they call it on “60 MINUTES”….a premature death…

11.  TIGER WOODS may be disciplined for kicking his club 15 yards after a poor shot at the “MASTERS” golf tournament on friday….tough break for TIGER…and then TIGER was forced to take a backseat to the others golfers…once in the backseat, he invited a bunch of female fans to join him….

12.  KIM KARDASHIAN and KANYE WEST are reportedly dating….the new couple went to see “THE HUNGER GAMES”  the other day…which is ironic that these two would go to that one when they are both starving for attention….

13.  ALEC BALDWIN is ripping apart the NEW YORK DAILY NEWS for showing up at a yoga class to take pictures of his much much younger fiancee…he should be happy…at least they didn’t show up when he was putting her on the school bus in the morning…

14.  JOKE OF THE DAY: (thanks to my friend MIKE)

A dad buys a lie detector robot that slaps people when they lie. He decides to test it at dinner. “Son, where were you today?”
The son says, “At school, Dad.” Robot slaps the son. “Okay, I watched a DVD at my friend’s house!” the son says.
“Which DVD?” asks the dad.
“Toy Story.” Robot slaps the son again! “Okay, it was a porno!” cries the son. “What? ! When I was your age, I didn’t know what porn was,” says the dad. Robot slaps the dad. Mom laughs, “Hahaha! He certainly is your son!” Robot slaps the mom. Awkward silence…
