by the way, if you are a CLINT EASTWOOD fan like i am, i totally recommend the following box set…..

http://youtu.be/H3nb-TIfBgk

7.  okay…i’m sick of being sick….i’m not a very good “sick person.”  i’m used to being on the go for about 12-14 hours a day, and being stuck at home on the couch hacking up a lung is not what i want to do…..but i can’t complain too much…i have some friends who have had this gunk for about 3 weeks now…..a friend of mine at M & H in ABERDEEN told me this morning about a “rinse” that they have at NATURAL ABUNDANCE.  you apparently combine it with DISTILLED WATER and flush it in your nose in the shower, and it apparently causes a volcano of stuff to leave your body…thus being in the shower…..might have to try that….

8.  our softball team from ST. JOHN’S in HECLA has their first practice tonight and we have our first game monday night in ABERDEEN…i don’t think i’m going to try playing this summer…i want to make darn sure i’m completely healed from my hernia surgery before i play….that’s because i have a horrible habit of sliding into bases with shorts on, and diving everywhere for softballs…..might be safer to take the summer off…

9.  today is “world no tobacco day” where smokers are urged to try giving up cigarettes for just one day to see how it feels…and, because of that, it’s also “world scream at your spouse and kids day, and punch your co-workers in the face day.”

10.  the national spelling bee  continues today and features a six year old competing…yeah, six years old….and now DONALD TRUMP is demanding to see her birth certificate.

11.  in CHINA, a stray dog followed a group of cyclists on their journey of more than 1,100 miles…animals are pretty smart…a stray dog in CHINA knows it shouldn’t stop running….

12.  the ratings are thru the roof for the HISTORY CHANNEL’S first feature movie “HATFIELDS AND MCCOYS”, the story of a long running blood feud between two mountain clans…it’s like of like “THE SOPRANOS” with chewing tobacco and cousins marrying cousins….

13.  JOKE OF THE DAY:

A wife was making a breakfast of fried eggs for her husband. Suddenly, her husband burst into the kitchen. ‘Careful,’ he said, ‘CAREFUL! Put in some more butter! Oh my gosh! You’re cooking too many at once. TOO MANY! Turn them! TURN THEM NOW! We need more butter. Oh my gosh! WHERE are we going to get MORE BUTTER? They’re going to STICK! Careful. CAREFUL! I said be CAREFUL! You NEVER listen to me when you’re cooking! Never! Turn them! Hurry up! Are you CRAZY? Have you LOST your mind? Don’t forget to salt them. You know you always forget to salt them. Use the! Salt. USE THE SALT! THE SALT!’ The wife stared at him. ‘What in the world is wrong with you?You think I don’t know how to fry a couple of eggs?’ The husband calmly replied, ‘I just wanted to show you what it feels like when I’m driving.’

AMEN TO THAT!!!

HAVE A GREAT THURSDAY…

JAY DEAN

 

HAPPY HUMP DAY…HAPPY WEDNESDAY…HAPPY MIDWEEK…WHATEVER YOU WANT TO CALL IT….THE GOOD NEWS IS, AFTER MEMORIAL DAY OFF, WE’RE HALFWAY THRU THE WEEK ALREADY…I COULD GET USED TO THREE DAY WEEKENDS EVERY WEEKEND, RIGHT?

1.  here are your wednesday funnies….

these are called “the signs of our times.”

2.  happy birthday wishes are going out today to actor CLINT WALKER….don’t remember his name? you probably will, especially if you are a fan of westerns….

CLINT WALKER starred as CHEYENNE BODIE in the hit show “CHEYENNE”, he was also in the movie “THE DIRTY DOZEN”, and he starred in the short lived 1974 tv show “KODIAK.”

see if you remember him….

CLINT WALKER is 85 years old today…here he is recently….

3.  birthday wishes are also going out to the actor who played the youngest child, MICHAEL EVANS on “GOOD TIMES.” his name is RALPH CARTER and he is 51 today…..

here he is….

and here he is today at 51……

4.  have you ever wondered what the cast of “GOOD TIMES” looks like today? let’s remember them back in the 70’s first….

some of the cast got together in recent years…here’s the birthday boy RALPH CARTER with BERN NADETTE STANIS who played his tv sister “THELMA.”

and here’s a bunch of the cast together again…..i’ll list them after the picture…

okay here we go….from left to right….actress JA’NET DUBOIS who played “WINONA”, she’s now 66 years old…then it’s “BOOKMAN” the maintenance guy..he’s played by JOHNNY BROWN who is 74 now…then it’s BERN NADETTE STANIS, or “THELMA”, she’s currently 58…..show creator NORMAN LEAR is next…he’s 89 years old……”DYN-O-MITE” was the slogan of J.J. played by JIMMIE WALKER…he’s next and he’s 64 years old…and birthday boy RALPH CARTER round them out….

5.  I HATE BEING SICK…sunday night, something came on like in a 15 minute period…have a feeling it’s allergies, but it would be a sinus infection, too….all i know is i went home yesterday afternoon and loaded up on medication and slept most of the day….then last night i took NYQUIL before i went to bed…

that stuff really works, but i hate the NYQUIL HANGOVER that you have when you get up in the morning…..

6.  legendary blind guitarist DOC WATSON died yesterday at the age of 89….he could play anything…bluegrass, country, folk, and more….DOC WATSON was an incredible picker…he won SEVEN grammy awards, including the grammy for lifetime achievement.

here’s DOC WATSON years ago….

DOC WATSON played with his son MERLE WATSON up until MERLE’S tragic death in 1985 on the family farm….

and here’s DOC WATSON a couple of years ago….still pickin’….

7.  man, the SAN ANTONIO SPURS basketball team is ON FIRE….they beat the OKLAHOMA CITY THUNDER last night to take a 2-0 lead in the NBA playoffs…the SPURS haven’t lost a playoff game this year, and now have won 20 games in a row going back into the regular season…WOW…i’m actually cheering for the THUNDER, because i love KEVIN DURANT, but i also wouldn’t mind seeing SAN ANTONIO go undefeated in the post season…that would be cool to witness….

8.  HOW ABOUT THOSE TWINS?  in a season where the MINNESOTA TWINS have been sucking it up, it’s nice to have a night like last night….the TWINS were behind 2-0 going into the bottom of the ninth inning…they hadn’t looked good all game, and skipper RON GARDENHIRE thought that pitchers threw more balls than strikes in the game….

HOWEVER, with two guys on base, and two out in the bottom of the ninth, JOSH WILLINGHAM cranked a three run homer to help the TWINS win 3-0…..we don’t have many good memories of this season…we needed last night……

9.  medical experts claim that sitting in your car for long commutes can be hazardous to your health….so, work in an exercise program while you drive…..like flipping your middle finger up and down during the trip…..

10.  the law firm of DEWEY AND LEBOEUF just became the biggest law firm in U.S. history to go bankrupt…DEWEY will now go back to his old law firm with CHEATEM and HOWE….

11.  the GOLDEN GATE BRIDGE turned 75 years old this week….the bridge cost $35 million dollars, has 1.2 million rivets and took over four months to construct….OH WAIT…THAT’S NOT THE BRIDGE, THAT’S JOAN RIVERS….SORRY….

12.  JUSTIN BIEBER “allegedly” assaulted a photographer who was standing in front of his car….the photographer was taken to a hospital where he was treated and ridiculed…..

13.  JOKE OF THE DAY: (a classic)

Two hunters were off on their annual trip to the Canadian wilderness to bag a moose. As the seaplane landed on a lake in a remote area, the pilot said, “I’ll be back in one week to pick you up. But only one moose, please.”
     When he returned to the lake, he found the hunters proudly standing beside two moose.
     “I told you guys only one moose!” the furious flier screamed. “There’s no way the plane can take off with that much weight!”
     “You’re just a chicken pilot,” one hunter said. “We killed two moose last year and that pilot wasn’t afraid to take off.”
     Stung by the suggestion of cowardice, he reconsidered. “All right, if you did it last year, I guess we can try it.”
     They loaded up and the pilot taxied to the far end of the lake to begin his take-off. The plane bounced across the water as it strained to get airborne, but the overloaded aircraft finally ran out of space and crashed into the trees. Some time later, the hunters regained consciousness.
     “Where are we?” one asked.
     His friend looked around at the scattered debris, then back at the edge of the lake and replied, “About a hundred yards farther than last year.”

HAVE A GREAT WEDNESDAY…

JAY DEAN

9.  JEANNIE AND I took in a movie yesterday to help unwind from a busy weekend….we love the “MEN IN BLACK” series, so we went to see “MEN IN BLACK 3″…it was really good……usually when you get to movie 3 of a series they start to fall flat…but this one didn’t…it starred the normal guys WILL SMITH and TOMMY LEE JONES, and then had JOSH BROLIN playing a younger TOMMY LEE JONES….and he was INCREDIBLE!!!

10.  GERMANS say that they are worried about their imagine in EUROPE because all of the other nations that they have bailed out and helped are now angry and ungrateful and bad mouthing them….CONGRATULATIONS GERMANY…NOW YOU KNOW WHAT IT FEELS LIKE TO BE AMERICANS!!!

11.  ABC announced that in july, they will begin a nine week trial of a spin-off of “GOOD MORNING AMERICA” called “GOOD AFTERNOON AMERICA”…it will be followed by  “GOOD EVENING AMERICA”, “YOU’RE GETTING SLEEP AMERICA”, and my favorite “STOP HOGGING THE COVERS I’M TRYING TO SLEEP AMERICA.”

15.  JOKE OF THE DAY:

A farmer drove to a neighbor’s farmhouse and knocked at the door.
A boy, about 9, opened the door
“Is your dad or mom home?” said the farmer.
“No, they went to town.”
“How about your brother, Howard? Is he here?”
“No, he went with Mom and Dad.”
The farmer stood there for a few minutes, shifting from one foot to the other,and mumbling to himself.
“I know where all the tools are, if you want to borrow one, or I can give Dad a message.”
“Well,” said the farmer uncomfortably, “I really wanted to talk to your Dad. It’s about your brother Howard getting my daughter Suzy pregnant”.

The boy thought for a moment… “You would have to talk to Dad about that. I know he charges $500 for the bull and $50 for the pig, but I don’t know how much he charges for Howard.”

HAVE A TERRIFIC TUESDAY…

JAY DEAN

8.  the man who invented the tv remote control has died at the age of 96…it happens in three’s……we lost two disco legends, and now we’ve lost the guy who made it possible to change the channel when disco came on…….(just joking…i’m a HUGE disco fan…)

A customer at Green’s Gourmet Grocery marveled at the proprietor’s quick wit and intelligence.
    “Tell me, Green, what makes you so smart?”
    “I wouldn’t share my secret with just anyone,” Green replies, lowering his voice so the other shoppers won’t hear. “But since you’re a good and faithful customer, I’ll let you in on it. Fish heads. You eat enough of them, you’ll be positively brilliant.”
    “You sell them here?” the customer asks.
    “Only $4 apiece,” says Green.
    The customer buys three. A week later, he’s back in the store complaining that the fish heads were disgusting and he isn’t any smarter.
    “You didn’t eat enough, ” says Green. The customer goes home with 20 more fish heads. Two weeks later, he’s back and this time he’s really angry.
    Hey, Green,” he says, “You’re selling me fish heads for $4 each when I can buy the whole fish for $2. You’re ripping me off!”
    “You see?” says Green. “You’re getting smarter already!”

HAVE A GREAT THURSDAY…

HAVE A GREAT WEDNESDAY…

JAY DEAN


 

IT’S TUESDAY…C’MON MEMORIAL DAY WEEKEND!!!

hey, here’s some good advice for a tuesday…or ANYDAY…

1.  here come your tuesday funnies!!!

wow…and you thought your job sucked!!!

i’m going to use the next one today…ha ha….

i’ve always wondered about the next one…

2.  happy birthday today to actor RICHARD BENJAMIN..he turns 74 today…you probably remember him from  movies like “MY FAVORITE YEAR”, “THE SUNSHINE BOYS”, where he played opposite WALTER MATTHAU and GEORGE BURNS…he also starred in a movie i love, the 1973 movie “WESTWORLD”, also starring YUL BRYNNER….

and, i don’t know if you remember this show or not, but RICHARD BENJAMIN starred in a short lived tv show called “QUARK”, which ran from 1977-1978….i used to watch that one….

RICHARD BENJAMIN has been married to actress PAULA PRENTISS for over 50 years…here they are recently…

do you remember PAULA PRENTISS?  she starred in movies like “WHERE THE BOYS ARE”, “THE STEPFORD WIVES”, and many more…she also is 74 years old…here she is in her younger years..

3.  i’m sure, if you are a baseball fan you have heard about the surgery called “TOMMY JOHN SURGERY.”  it’s a ligament replacement surgery that a lot of pitchers have to go thru….

the guy that the surgery was named after has a birthday today….former baseball star TOMMY JOHN turns 69 today….

he pitched for the CLEVELAND INDIANS, LOS ANGELES DODGERS, CHICAGO WHITE SOX, and the NEW YORK YANKEES…

here’s TOMMY JOHN today at 69…..

4.  they say that the greatest injustice in the world is outliving your children…well, my heart broke yesterday when i heard that the GIBB brothers mom is still alive…..their mom, BARBARA GIBB has now buried three of her four sons…..she is currently 91 years old…she has watched her son ANDY GIBB die, and her twin sons MAURICE AND ROBIN GIBB of “THE BEE GEES.”  i can’t even imagine how painful this must be…..

here are the boys a few years back with MOM…

5.  DEATH THREATS OVER A STUPID T-SHIRT?  ya sure ya betcha….

first of all the good news…THE OKLAHOMA CITY THUNDER ended the season of the LOS ANGELES LAKERS last night…..

i don’t know how many of you know this, but the OKLAHOMA CITY THUNDER were awarded a team after the owner of the SEATTLE  SUPERSONICS sold the team…

just in time for the playoffs, a t-shirt company issued a t-shirt thanking SEATTLE for the team, and even using the city skyline that was used as their logo….

i’m sure it torked off many SEATTLE fans…but death threats?  c’mon people…by the way, the t-shirt company has stopped making them…

6.  if i could have back all the money i spent playing PAC MAN, i would be out of debt…ha ha….wow…we used to just POUR the quarters into the machine….

why am i talking about PAC MAN? because, today is the 32nd anniversary of the legendary game…it came out to the public on may 22nd, 1980……i still LOVE that game….

i had a couple of friends that could “memorize” each frame of the game and could go many many many levels into the game…which was fun if you were watching them, but HORRIBLE if you were in line to play…..

7.  IT IS MEMORIAL WEEKEND YET?  ugh…it seems like time just crawls when you’re looking forward to a three day weekend….

8.  CHINESE dissident CHEN GUANGCHENG has been in AMERICA for only a few days, and says he is adjusting fine to our country…he’s already forgotten math….

9.  police in upstate NEW YORK have arrested a commercial airline pilot with a loaded .357 magnum in his luggage….people don’t care…it’s just refreshing to be on a plane where the pilot ISN’T LOADED….

10.  TMZ is reporting that LINDSAY LOHAN is spending lots of time picking out just the right dresses for her upcoming role as ELIZABETH TAYLOR…the movie starts shooting next month….the big problem is picking out jewelry…strange…but for some reason the jewelry keeps disappearing….

11.  archaeologists found MAYAN calendars in GUATEMALA  that extend well beyond 2012….how can they tell it’s way behind 2012?  because the calendar shows the MINNESOTA TWINS winning over 60 games in a season…OUCH…

12.  the NATIONAL ENQUIRER reports that casting agents for a new movie are telling actresses in the 20’s that they’ll have to audition COMPLETELY NAKED for LEONARDO DICAPRIO….wait a minute…hasn’t every actress done that already?  (i’m sure this is correct…i don’t think the NATIONAL ENQUIRER would post anything that’s false, would it?)

13. JOKE OF THE DAY:  (thanks KERRY…)

Once a blonde decided to go ice fishing. She grabbed all her equipment and put on her fishing outfit.. She walked out onto the icy surface and found a good spot. She took a knife and made a large circle in the ice with it.
     “NO! Not there! You will find no fish!” a booming voice announced out of nowhere. So the blonde moved a few feet away and made another circle.      “NO!! Not there either!!” The voice boomed again. The blonde moved a third time, making another circle on the ice.
     “I said, NO!! There is no fish there!!” The voice boomed again.
     “Is that you, God?” The blonde called out.
     “NO!!” The voice boomed. “It’s the manager of the ice rink!!”

 HAVE A GREAT TUESDAY…
