2.  happy milestone birthday today to one of “AMERICA’S SWEETHEARTS”.  it’s ANNETTE FUNICELLO’S 70th birthday today…you most likely remember her from “THE MICKEY MOUSE CLUB.”

and her “beach” movies with FRANKIE AVALON…

ANNETTE FUNICELLO has been ravaged by MS….a few of her pictures from today were not very flattering, so i choose to remember her as she was…here’s a photo of her from a few years back….HAPPY BIRTHDAY ANNETTE…WE LOVE YOU!!!

3.  speaking of FRANKIE AVALON, i wonder what he looks like today…well, we’re about to find out…FRANKIE is now 72…here he is today…

4.  and speaking of birthdays, one of GOD’S most beautiful creations ever had a birthday yesterday…my mama turned 69….we suprised the heck out of her with all the kids coming home yesterday for dinner, football, and laughs….

it was a tough day for mom yesterday…it was her first birthday without dad……she was very emotional, but had an awesome day with us….

here’s my mama with my niece ERIN…

5.  yesterday morning GEORGE MCGOVERN passed away at the age of 90…you may recall that he was put into hospice earlier last week.  GEORGE MCGOVERN was a great senator from our awesome state of SOUTH DAKOTA…plus he was a presidential candidate in 1972.  he probably didn’t have the strongest of vice presidential candidates with THOMAS EAGLETON, and it showed, as MCGOVERN suffered one of the biggest landslide losses in presidential history…he lost to RICHARD NIXON, who would, two years later resign from office…..

one of MCGOVERN’S best and funniest quotes ever was this….”I HAVE ALWAYS WANTED TO RUN FOR THE PRESIDENCY BADLY, AND WE DID JUST THAT.”  great quote…

here’s a photo album for you of GEORGE MCGOVERN, featuring one picture with THOMAS EAGLETON, and one picture of him just a few months ago…

MR. MCGOVERN…thank you for your service to our state and to our country…..we pray that GOD is blessing you richly right now, which i am sure he is doing….


7.  i was driving home from mom’s birthday party in PIERPONT last night, and was, as i always do, listening to “WILLIE’S ROADHOUSE” on “SIRIUS SATELITE RADIO.”

they were interviewing songwriter and singer KINKY FRIEDMAN…he wrote and sang a song called “RAPID CITY, SOUTH DAKOTA” which is a great song…only problem is, on my SIRIUS machine, it showed up as RAPID CITY, NORTH DAKOTA…YEP…NORTH DAKOTA…..it seems people can’t get that right….

8. i will tell you the funniest and most annoying mistake on our state….when i was working in radio in LISBON, NORTH DAKOTA back in the late 80’s, i had to call a record company in NEW YORK CITY to place an order.  she took all my information and then read it back to me and said the following…and i’m not joking by the way….


WEST OR EAST?   i told her it’s north and south…and she said “whatever.”  unbelieveable….


A big-game hunter went on safari with his wife and mother-in-law. One evening, while still deep in the jungle, the Mrs awoke to find her mother gone. Rushing to her husband, she insisted on them both trying to find her mother. The hunter picked up his rifle, took a swig of whiskey, and started to look for her. In a clearing not far from the camp, they came upon a chilling sight: the mother-in-law was backed up against a thick, impenetrable bush, and a large male lion stood facing her. The wife cried, “What are we going to do?” “Nothing,” said the hunter husband. “The lion got himself into this mess, let him get himself out of it.”
