random thoughts for thursday may 3rd, 2012

HEY, IT’S THURSDAY….

happy birthday wishes are going out to my senior class president of the class of 82 at LANGFORD HIGH SCHOOL….DEB HARDY celebrates today, and my dear, i wish you the best day today…..we always know each others birthdays because we are two days apart…ha ha

1.  here come your thursday funnies…

no thanks, i’ll take a different route….

stupid chickens…

thank goodness for REDNECKS…they take the pressure off of the rest of us…ha ha…

and finally, don’t like your job?  be thankful!!

2.  today we are going to salute a couple of iconic music stars….we begin with the legendary ANNE MURRAY…seriously, there is no voice in music that sounds like ANNE MURRAY…i thought of a couple of her songs the other day and added a dozen to my I-POD….listened to her all day yesterday in my car…..

i was always a fan, but not a die-hard fan of ANNE MURRAY…that is, until i saw her live in concert at the casino near HANKINSON a few years back…WHAT AN ENTERTAINER….if you get a chance to see her, don’t miss it….

ANNE MURRAY has been around the music scene for decades…here she is in her younger years….

i always thought that she was quite an attractive lady….

ANNE MURRAY is now 66 years old…and still quite nice looking…

3.  when trying to decide which songs to give you by ANNE MURRAY it took me quite some time….this great singer has had DOZENS AND DOZENS of hits….i’ll pick a couple…

here’s “SNOWBIRD.”

how about “SHADOWS IN THE MOONLIGHT.”

and we absolutely have to give you “COULD I HAVE THIS DANCE”.

4.  we are also going to feature country music’s WILDCHILD….of course, we are talking about TANYA TUCKER…it seems like back in the 70’s and 80’s she was in the headlines every week…

TANYA TUCKER hit the music scene at the tender age of 13…the song, of course, was “DELTA DAWN.”

since then she has had dozens and dozens of country music hits, including 36 top ten hits and ten number one hits…

here’s an early picture of TANYA TUCKER…

here she is during her heavy partying days…

 

TANYA TUCKER is also known for her horrible relationship with GLEN CAMPBELL…she has claimed abuse, which he always has denied…i guess only both of them know…


TANYA TUCKER is now 53 years old..and still out there performing…and just like ANNE MURRAY has a very distinctive voice that nobody else has…

here’s TANYA today…

5.  here comes some TANYA TUCKER music….

here’s “DELTA DAWN”,  the song that got it all started…and if you remember somebody else having this song out on the pop charts, you are right…it was HELEN REDDY…

here’s my all time favorite TANYA TUCKER song, “HERE’S SOME LOVE.”

and here’s “LIZZIE AND THE RAINMAN.”

6.  last night i had to go west of HECLA to pick up something for church….and then i continued on to FREDERICK and caught highway 281 to come home….

I ALMOST GOT OUT OF MY CAR AND KISSES THE PAVEMENT OF 281 WHEN I GOT THERE….WOW…

those roads are horrible…..i think i bottomed out four or five times…..in some parts of the road 20mph was way too fast….unreal….

7.  i know it’s a quick fix, but isn’t it possible to at least fill potholes with GRAVEL?  maybe some are doing it, but many roads do not have that luxury….

8.  there’s apparently a new app that tells you how ugly you are…cripes, it’s been around for years..it’s called  A MIRROR…

9.  a study by the SOCIETY OF AUTOMOTIVE ENGINEERS found that as many as two million car accidents a year are caused by people turning or changing lanes WITHOUT SIGNALING…which is why it’s so safe to drive in FLORIDA….everyone’s turns signals are on constantly!!

10.  a couple in NEW JERSEY say that they found a beehive and 30,000 bees in their attic….they are exhausted from trying to clean up the mess….and counting 30,000 bees….

11.  CHARLIE SHEEN is threatening to sue a NEW YORK CITY strip club for naming their V.I.P. room after him…they quickly changed it to “THE SECRET SERVICE ROOM.”

12.  a treasure hunter in CALIFORNIA says he’s determined the location of OSAMA BIN LADEN’S body on the ocean floor and is planning an expedition to retrieve it….won’t be a pleasant sight…..he’s been underwater longer than the OCTOMOM’S mortgage….

13.  ANN ROMNEY says that her husband MITT is “wild and crazy.”  it’s true…he once bought CHUNKY peanut butter instead of CREAMY…

14. JOKE OF THE DAY:

 A man walked into a therapist’s office looking very depressed.
    “Doc, you’ve got to help me. I can’t go on like this.”
    “What’s the problem?” the doctor inquired.
    “Well, I’m 35 years old and I still have no luck with the ladies. No matter how hard I try, I just seem to scare them away.”
    “My friend, this is not a serious problem. You just need to work on your self-esteem. Each morning, I want you to get up and run to the bathroom mirror. Tell yourself that you are a good person, a fun person, and an attractive person. But say it with real conviction. Within a week you’ll have women buzzing all around you.”
    The man seemed content with this advice and walked out of the office a bit excited. Three weeks later he returned with the same downtrodden expression on his face.
    “Did my advice not work?” asked the doctor.
    “It worked alright. For the past several weeks I’ve enjoyed some of the best moments in my life with the most fabulous looking women.”
    “So, what’s your problem?” the doctor asked.
    “I don’t have a problem,” the man replied. “My wife does.”

HAVE A TERRIFIC THURSDAY EVERYBODY…
