random thoughts for monday november 12th, 2012


a big AMEN to the next one….


your daily blog would not be possible with out the gang at PIERSON FORD in ABERDEEN….we’re located on north highway 281 in the auto plaza. tons of great vehicles….pre-owned and new…you can always see the vehicles at piersonford.com………..





i think this next one is WAY too much to ask…..


if the next one was true, the fire department’s wouldn’t be able to keep up….

i’ve heard of “bakin” in the sun, but this is ridiculous….


2.  actress KIM HUNTER would have been 90 years old today, if she hadn’t passed away in 2002 at the age of 79…..don’t know KIM HUNTER?  i bet you do….

KIM HUNTER, played opposite MARLON BRANDO in the classic “A STREETCAR NAMED DESIRE.”  she played the famous role of “STELLA.”

however, KIM HUNTER’S most famous role came with lots of makeup…she played DR. ZIRA in the 1968 classic “PLANET OF THE APES.”

here she is with her movie co-star RODDY MCDOWELL….

here’s a picture of KIM HUNTER later in life….


3.  my favorite movie “THE WIZARD OF OZ” can’t keep it’s name out of the news, even after all these years…AND I LOVE IT…..

there was an auction the other day where the original dress that JUDY GARLAND wore in the movie was auctioned off….how much did it go for?

$480,000….that’s right…FOUR HUNDRED AND EIGHTY THOUSAND DOLLARS……. (grandpa, can i borrow some money?)

and, of course, with any celebrity auction, there needs to be something totally ridiculous on the sale….what was this sales goofy entry?

A SLICE OF WEDDING CAKE FROM PRINCE WILLIAMS WEDDING……going for $1375…..THIRTEEN HUNDRED AND SEVENTY FIVE DOLLARS…..i’m pretty sure i could find something a little better to do with thirteen hundred dollars…….



i’m sorry, but i have to do this for all MINNESOTA VIKINGS, GREEN BAY PACKERS, and DETROIT LIONS fans…

this is dedicated to KYLE ZIMMER at PIERSON FORD, and my buddy STEWART in WARNER….


5.  okay..on to some SERIOUS NFL NEWS…

***ADRIAN PETERSON IS A BEAST….man, that VIKING’S running back can change a game in seconds….i was watching football with my wife yesterday, and i said, “ADRIAN REALLY NEEDS TO BREAK ONE FOR A TOUCHDOWN TO HELP MY FANTASY TEAM.”  boom…next play he did….i guess i need to ask more…..the VIKINGS looked great without their star PERCY HARVIN in the game……CHRISTIAN PONDER actually looked like an NFL quarterback….

***JAY CUTLER may be out with a concussion for the CHICAGO BEARS….he was drilled last night….well, their backup quarterback JASON CAMPBELL came in the game….he’s a former REDSKINS quarterback, so i know him well…all i can say is this….GOOD LUCK BEARS FANS…YOU’RE GOING TO NEED IT WITH THIS GUY……he always had that “deer in the headlites” look all the time….

***the 49’ERS and RAMS game ended up in a tie….i don’t think that should happen…you watch a game for almost four hours, and then it ends tied up?  how defeating…….(no pun intended)

***you have to believe that ANDY REID is out in PHILADELPHIA…and MICHAEL VICK is probably out with him…..the EAGLES were hammered by my most hated team, THE DALLAS COWBOYS…VICK went out with an injury, and, quite possibly, may have played his last game with the EAGLES….so says some experts at ESPN…

***IS REX RYAN AN IDIOT?  well, i’m not a fan of his or his brother’s, so i really don’t care…however, i will ask this question…”at what point do you go with TIM TEBOW and drop MARK SANCHEZ?”…wow…the JETS stunk it up yesterday….the fans are screaming TEBOW, but REXY won’t budge……he may budge as he’s being pushed out of the coaches office……permanently….


6.  because of our boy’s high recommendations, we sat down and watched the movie “MOONRISE KINGDOM.” 

the movie should be incredible with the cast including BILL MURRAY, BRUCE WILLIS,  EDWARD NORTON and others….

it was…umm….OKAY…..JEANNIE really didn’t care for it…in fact, she told me to get ahold of our son MITCHELL and tell him he owed us six dollars for the rental…ha ha…

this movie had it’s moments of cuteness….kind of a cute plot of two kids running away who were “in love”……the cast is good, but most of the movie just couldn’t keep us entertained……maybe i could watch it again and get more out of it, but i seriously don’t think i’ll be doing that……


7.  FLORIDA has finally finished counting their ballots…and the winner?  AL GORE….oh wait a minute…..



“i drank orange juice right after i brushed my teeth…now i truly know what death tastes like.”


9.  JOKE OF THE DAY: (a groaner)

A frog goes into a bank and approaches the teller. He can see from her nameplate
that her name is Patricia Whack.

“Miss Whack, I’d like to get a $30,000
loan to take a holiday.” Patty looks at the frog in disbelief and asks his name.
The frog says his name is Kermit Jagger, his dad is Mick Jagger, and that it’s
okay, he knows the bank manager.

Patty explains that he will need to
secure the loan with some collateral. The frog says, “Sure. I have this,” and
produces a tiny porcelain elephant, about an inch tall, bright pink and
perfectly formed. Very confused, Patty explains that she’ll have to consult with
the bank manager and disappears into a back office.

She finds the manager
and says, “There’s a frog called Kermit Jagger out  there who claims to know you
and wants to borrow $30,000, and he wants to use this as collateral.” She holds
up the tiny pink elephant. “I mean, what in the world is this?”

going to love this)


(Wait for it)

The bank
manager looks back at her and says…”It’s a knickknack, Patty Whack. Give the
frog a loan. His old man’s a Rolling Stone.”
