random thoughts for monday january 7th, 2013





the blog is sponsored by PIERSON FORD in the auto plaza in ABERDEEN……..the home of the best selling truck for the past 35 years….THE FORD F-150…..




if you haven’t been in yet to see the 2013 FORD FUSION, you need to do so…….FORD has made many changes in the FUSION to make it one of the sharpest vehicles on the market….



come see us today…PIERSON FORD is located on north highway 281 in ABERDEEN, SOUTH DAKOTA…….call us at 1-800-627-1237……


1. here are some funnies to tickle your funny bone………


somebody needs to be hauled into the boss’s office…ha ha….




this is cute……




the older i get means that i may have to start adopting the next phrase for my lifestyle……




i wish i had known about the next one when my boys were small…….




and finally, a little “holy humor.”




2.  one of my favorite singers is having a birthday today…….KENNY LOGGINS is 64 today…i cannot believe he’s that old…..KENNY LOGGINS started out with JIM MESSINA in the duo “LOGGINS AND MESSINA.”  they had some incredible hits like “YOUR MAMA DON’T DANCE”, “DANNY’S SONG” and many many more……here they are back then and recently….






and here’s KENNY LOGGINS back in his early days of his solo career……






here’s the birthday boy, KENNY LOGGINS, in the past couple of years….






3.  we need to do some KENNY LOGGINS music today in honor of his birthday…..i’m sad that i haven’t seen KENNY in concert yet….he had been in our region a couple of times in the past four or five years, and i couldn’t go….i’m still holding out hope……..


here’s the classic LOGGINS AND MESSINA song, “YOUR MAMA DON’T DANCE.”



KENNY LOGGINS is the songwriter of the huge hit “DANNY’S SONG”, one of my top 50 songs of all time….he wrote this song for his brother DANNY, when DANNY and his wife were having their first child….



and here’s KENNY LOGGINS all by himself, with the song “KEEP THE FIRE”…used to love this song……



and, we have to do a little bit of “I’M ALRIGHT” from the movie “CADDYSHACK.”




****well, my WASHINGTON REDSKINS season is over….people have been asking me all day today, “ARE YOU DISAPPOINTED?”  and my response is “HECK NO.”  everybody picked us to be last in our division this year, and we ended up first and hosted a playoff game…trust me, the future is BRIGHT for my team……

the sad news yesterday was our incredible quarterback going down again….RG3 looks like he had a devastating injury……check out this photo of the incident…..




i knew he was hurt badly, because he fumbled the ball and the ball laid right by him and he didn’t grab for it……anyway, we had a highly successful year, and lost yesterday to the SEATTLE SEAHAWKS 24-14..  i thought we were going to thump them after our really hot first quarter…we played great ball and had a 14 point lead…unfortunately, they were the only points we would score……


****theHOUSTON TEXANS are moving on after beating the BENGALS on saturday night…….i like this HOUSTON team….they are definetly one of my favorite teams in the NFL…the sad thing is, they are from TEXAS where my most hated team in sports comes from…..(THE DALLAS COWBOYS…just in case you haven’t noticed in the past few years…ha ha)


****CHRISTIAN PONDER was pulled from the MINNESOTA VIKINGS team at the last minute before thier game against their arch rivals THE GREEN BAY PACKERS….which meant that JOE WEBB would start…hey listen, i’m a big big JOE WEBB fan, but he was horrible saturday night……..the VIKES lost, and now have to go into the offseason and decide if PONDER is their starting quarterback…i have been saying for a couple of years, START JOE WEBB AS A WIDE RECEIVER….that’s what he played in college…he’s very big and has great hands……the VIKINGS are missing the boat on this one…..


****the INDIANAPOLIS COLT’S incredible season is over….they were beaten yesterday by the BALTIMORE COLTS….i mean RAVENS….(just having some fun…..)  i was sad about that, because the story of the COLT’S coach CHUCK PAGANO is inspiring….coming back from cancer and everything….i truly admire that man…..but, that’s sports……


5.  and now the good news in sports….HOCKEY’S COMING BACK….yep….the greedy owners finally came to an agreement with the players, and it sounds like a 50 game season starting around january 19th….cannot wait…..this morning i wore my favorite hockey jacket….my MINNESOTA WILD jacket….they picked up the top two free agent prospects last year, and excitement is at an all time high in the region because of it…can’t wait to see them play……




6.  i ordered a few movies recently, and they came in saturday……i watched part of one this weekend, and can’t wait to watch the others…..

one of my favorite movies growing up was the TONY RANDALL movie “THE SEVEN FACES OF DR. LAO”….he plays seven characters in this movie…very talented, and i forgot how funny it is…..




another one of my faves from years ago is the MIA FARROW thriller “SEE NO EVIL.”  i now own it, and i told my son MITCHELL that we are going to watch it before he goes back to college……..she plays a blind woman who is being terrorized by a killer…..awesome movie…….




and, i think one of the funniest comedy duos of the 70’s and 80’s was RICHARD PRYOR and GENE WILDER….so, i ordered their two big movies……..






“SEE NO EVIL, HEAR NO EVIL” is about PRYOR being blind and WILDER being deaf….and the hilarious hijinks ensue when these two try to work together….i’ll have to watch it close…my beautiful wife JEANNIE noticed a blooper in the movie where GENE WILDER answered a question from PRYOR when he had his back to him and obviously couldn’t hear him……ha ha…..


7.  scary scary scary moment over the weekend….my sister in law KELLEY had family vacationing in the hills of ARIZONA….her cousin’s seven year old son wandered away from the cabin and was lost…….he was lost all day saturday into sunday morning….THANK GOD IN HEAVEN he was found….obviously, when a child is lost in the dark, cold night, people can think the worst…but apparently, the boy, COLE, found a place indoors to hang out in until they found him….the picture of COLE being reunited with his dad is tear jerking….every parent that heard this story could sympathize with the parents….how horrible…yet, how incredible that he was found…….




8.  the college football national championship is tonight…NOTRE DAME against ALABAMA….as i reported the other day, i really don’t care…being a TENNESSEE VOLS fan, i can’t stand ALABAMA, however, NOTRE DAME is my most disliked college football team….so, being a fan of the SOUTHEAST CONFERENCE, or “SEC”, i have to cheer for ALABAMA…….if i even watch it…..i may watch one of the movies i just mentioned above……..


9.  JOKE OF THE DAY:  (a really good one…)


One Sunday pastor told his congregation that the church needed some extra money and asked the people to prayerfully consider giving a little extra in the offering plate. He said that whoever gave the most would be able to pick out three hymns. After the offering plates were passed, the pastor glanced down and noticed that someone had placed a $1,000.00 bill in the offering. He was so excited that… he immediately shared his joy with his congregation and said he’d like to personally thank the person who placed the money in the plate. A very quiet, elderly, saintly lady all the way in the back shyly raised her hand. The pastor asked her to come to the front. Slowly she made her way to the pastor. He told her how wonderful it was that she gave so much and in thanksgiving asked her to pick out three hymns. Her eyes brightened as she looked over the congregation, pointed to the three handsomest men in the building and said, “I’ll take him, him, and him.”
