7.  JEANNIE AND I were super busy with graduations this weekend….we made it to WARNER and BRITTON HECLA, but we celebrated with some other friends as well….

we did, however, find time last night to finally see the movie “THE AVENGERS.” 

FANTASTIC MOVIE!!!  we laughed all the way thru it….humor, thrilling scenes, and all everything we had hoped for from our favorite super heroes….

ROBERT DOWNEY, JR., once again stole the show as “IRONMAN”, but also MARK RUFFALO added plenty of humor as “THE HULK.”  if you love comic book characters and super heroes, you don’t want to miss this one….

8.  three weeks from today we will be leaving for COLORADO for a week…it cannot get here fast enough….as i have mentioned before, burnout has set in…my vacation days so far this year have been used on church, my surgery, and my dad’s health…..this will be the only week of the year dedicated to my wife and kids…sad, huh?

13.  “KEEPING UP WITH THE KARDASHIANS” kicked off it’s seventh season last night on E! network, followed by the premiere of “MRS.

14.  a woman working at an ARBY’S in MICHIGAN, severed her finger which was then inadvertently served in a roast beef sandwich, and NOW the REAL fingerpointing begins….


A man, his wife, and mother-in-law went on vacation to the Holy Land. While they were there the mother-in-law passed away.
    The undertaker told them, “You can have her shipped home for $5,000, or you can bury her here in the Holy Land for $150.00.”
    The man thought about it and told him he would just have her shipped home.
    The undertaker asked, “Why? Why would you spend $5,000 to ship your mother-in-law home, when it would be wonderful to be buried here and spend only $150.00?”
    The man said, “A man died here over 2000 years ago, he was buried here, and three days later he rose from the dead. I just can’t take that chance.”
