1.  HERE ARE TODAY’S FUNNIES….

 

when i see the first one, i think of the classic DISNEY movie, “THAT DARN CAT.”

 

524139_481368898595724_931795029_n

 

well, this should do the trick at work…..

and now…A “KODAK MOMENT.”

2.  happy birthday wishes are going out today to actor ANTHONY GEARY, or “TONY GEARY.”  he is most famous for playing LUKE SPENCER on the hit soap opera “GENERAL HOSPITAL.” 

 

anthonygeary1j

 

TONY, along with the beautiful GENIE FRANCIS had the soap opera “love of a lifetime.”  GENIE played “LAURA WEBBER”, and together they were “LUKE AND LAURA.”  remember their classic 1981 wedding?

3.  remember the 1981 hit song by CHRISTOPHER CROSS called “THINK OF LAURA?”  well, everybody, including myself, thought that it was created for LUKE AND LAURA….but CHRISTOPHER CROSS says that’s not true…he said he let ABC use it on the show, but it was written for a college student named LAURA who was killed by a stray bullet from over a block away….see if you remember the song….

http://youtu.be/Y0UXsl_5fdA

 

4.  and, on thursday, actor CLINT WALKER turns 86 years old…remember the name?  CLINT WALKER played the character “CHEYENNE BODIE” on the hit tv show “CHEYENNE”…the show ran from 1955-1962….

6.  it’s funny how you sometimes run into something you’ve never heard of before, but fall instantly in love with it….that was the case for me with music i found from singer CHELSEA MOON…..

 

327440_445905108794456_879489269_o

 

i was on I-TUNES the other day goofing around looking for some new christian music….and then i ran into music from CHELSEA MOON…she completely BLEW ME AWAY…her voice is “angelic.”  the bluegrass type acoustic music behind her is stunning, and the vocals behind her are perfect…….LOVE LOVE LOVE THIS GIRL……if you’re looking for her music, here’s one of her albums….

and here is her latest album….

remember SHARI LEWIS, plus lambchop, and charlie horse?

 

261787_10201124047240138_975467356_n

10.  JOKE OF THE DAY:

 

Two blondes were driving along a road by a wheat field when they saw a blonde in
the middle of the field rowing a row boat.

The driver blonde turned to
her friend and said “You know – it’s blondes like that that give us a bad
name!”

To this, the other blonde replies “I know it, and if I knew how to
swim, I’d go out there and drown her.”

 

HAVE A TERRIFIC DAY…

3.  this sunday, country star HANK WILLIAMS, JR. turns 64 years old…he, of course, if the son of the guy that i think is the GREATEST singer/songwriter of all time…HANK WILLIAMS, SR…here’s papa and son….HANK, SR. died when HANK JR. was very small…..

 

l

 

many of HANK JR.’S fans today have no clue that he’s been a star since the late 60’s into the 70’s….and they have no clue that he didn’t always have that trademark beard…..

HANK, JR. fell down a mountain in MONTANA back in 1975 and probably should have been killed….but, luckily he lived..but had to have major reconstruction surgeries, especially to his face……

here he is in his heyday….

6.  some sad HOLLYWOOD news…..actor TIM CURRY has suffered a major stroke…he is said to be doing okay today…he’s 67 by the way….you probably remember him as “DR. FRANK N. FURTER” in the classic “THE ROCKY HORROR PICTURE SHOW.”

 

tumblr_lt4rhxiZiQ1qe1c4yo1_500

 

my favorite TIM CURRY role is in the STEPHEN KING movie “IT.”  although i am horribly afraid of clowns, i couldn’t shut this movie off….he’s terrifying as “PENNYWISE THE CLOWN.”

here’s TIM CURRY today…we certainly wish him all the best, and a speedy recovery….

7. AND NOW…MOVIE NEWS….

 

my son MITCHELL walked into the house last night after watching “PARANORMAL ACTIVITY 4” with his girlfriend……i had heard it wasn’t very good, but MITCHELL took it a few steps further….he said it was “GODAWFUL.”  he called it one of the worst movies he has seen…..he said it was “stupid” and the ending “was really dumb.”  my guess is that MITCHELL didn’t like it…ha ha…and he also cured me of any interest in watching it….

8.  there’s a movie that is out right now that my wife says that we are DEFINETLY going to see…it’s the final episode (thankfully) of the “HANGOVER” series…it’s “HANGOVER 3.”  the reviews so far has been outrageously bad…..critics are tearing it into shreds…..many “normal people” not critics, are saying it’s pretty good, but the overall view so far, from what i have seen, if very negative….

i’ll go with my wife…..i’ll go because i’m craving a bucket of heavily buttered popcorn….

 

 

9.  virtually none of the coming attractions that play before the movies have peaked my attention….none except one coming out on july 3rd…..

JOHNNY DEPP can play almost any role….and ARMIE HAMMER looks great as the starring character….can’t wait for july 3rd……

 

10.  alright…i admit that i’m a fan of funnylady AMY SCHUMER….i absolutely adore her on the “COMEDY CENTRAL ROASTS.”  she’s funny, extremely beautiful, and has a ‘bite’ in her comedy….so, last night i sat down and watched her new show “INSIDE AMY SCHUMER”  on “COMEDY CENTRAL.”  wow….i had to shut it off….not that i’m a prude or anything…i don’t mind that kind of comedy, but it got very raunchy….talking about her private parts and such….i love the girl, but probably will have to just continue to watch her on the “ROASTS.”

11.  JOKE OF THE DAY:

 

The local sheriff was looking for a deputy, so Gomer – who was not exactly the sharpest nail in the bucket went in to try out for the job. “Okay,” the sheriff drawled, “Gomer, what is 1 and 1?” “11” he replied. The sheriff thought to himself, “That’s not what I meant, but he’s right.” “What two days of the weekstart with the letter ‘T’?” “Today and tomorrow.” He was again surprised that Gomer supplied a correct answer that he had never thought of himself. “Now Gomer, listen carefully: Who killed Abraham Lincoln?” Gomer looked a little surprised himself, then thought really hard for a minute and finally admitted, “I don’t know.” “Well, why don’t you go home and work on that one for a while?” So, Gomer wandered over to the pool hall where his pals were waiting to hear the results of the interview. Gomer was exultant. “It went great! First day on the job and I’m already working on a murder case!”

 

have a safe and happy MEMORIAL DAY WEEKEND….

JAY DEAN

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

what have i done for my country?  ABSOLUTELY NOTHING compared to those who bravely left their families behind and went to foreign lands to fight for our beloved land……i hope and pray that each of you takes time on monday, which is MEMORIAL DAY, to stop and reflect on those that gave their lives….those that had planned on coming home to thier families…..those who had future plans and dreams that were ruined  by bombs and bullets…….those who thought nothing of fighting for me and you, even though they did not know us….

 

i couldn’t join the military because of health reasons…..my father, my brother TROY and my brother TREVOR were in the NATIONAL GUARD.  my brother TREVOR served in “DESERT STORM.”  and, i frankly, could not be more proud of him….but we were lucky….we were able to watch him come off the plane….we were able to put our arms around him and hug and kiss him and tell him “we love you.”  we were some of the fortunate ones……

 

on MEMORIAL DAY, i pray that your thoughts and prayers are not only with those that gave thier lives for our country, but also with the families who struggle thru each and every MEMORIAL DAY, because of their loved ones not being with them.

the good thing about this sign is that it HELPS…the bad thing is, you’re probably going to fast by it anyway…..

and finally, i think i’ll scrub up an 86 year old and a 91 year old…..

2.  since we last spoke, tornadoes ravaged areas around OKLAHOMA CITY….we have relatives that live in that area, and thank GOD, they are okay….i’m not going to post pictures of the devastation, because our 24 hour news channels have handled that quite well…maybe too well…..anyway, i want to show you a GOOD NEWS story from the tornado action…..i am a person that believes that GOOD always comes out of a BAD situation…no matter what it is….

check this out…..and it was caught on live television……

http://youtu.be/JRBeyodP9zs

 

3.  one of the founding members of the band “THE DOORS” has died…..RAY MANZAREK was the keyboardist for the band….his haunting keyboard style always led into the dark vocals of JIM MORRISON….RAY MANZAREK died of cancer this week at the age of 74…..here he is….

4.  RAIN RAIN GO AWAY..COME AGAIN SOME OTHER DAY….you know the old saying…well, it’s true for our area right now….i cannot remember the last time we had a “two day soaker.”  but we got it….rainfall amounts vary around the area, some with over 3 inches from what we have heard…….and the forecast calls for a chance of rain thru next tuesday…..let’s hope it’s a minimal chance and it misses us….

and here’s another question…WHY DOES IT ALWAYS HAVE TO RAIN ON MEMORIAL DAY WEEKEND AND LABOR DAY WEEKEND?

 

5.  we are going to catch up with a couple of “one hit wonders” from the 70’s and 80’s………

 

first of all, it’s WALTER EGAN….he had a monster number one hit in 1978…..produced in part by FLEETWOOD MAC member LINDSEY BUCKINGHAM….

9.  JOKE OF THE DAY: (thanks to LINDA for the joke)

 

A farmer walked into a bar  with his pig and ordered a drink. The bartender could not help asking  the man why his pig had a peg leg. “Well, you see,” said the farmer,  “this is an amazing pig. Why, two years ago, my son was chopping wood in the field when a tree collapsed on him, pinning him to the ground and  making breathing difficult. The pig, which was in the area, ran to get  assistance and, squealing loudly, led us to my son to rescue him.”

“You’re right, that is an amazing story. But why does your pig have a peg leg?”

This is no ordinary pig,” the farmer continued. “One night while we were  sleeping, our barn caught fire and the pig managed to squeeze through a  little hole in the wall and circle our house, squealing as loud as it  could to wake us up. We were able to save all of the animals.”

“Wow. Incredible. But why does the pig have a peg leg?”

“Wait. Once, our home caught on fire. The pig managed to run to the next house over and wake the neighbors, who were able to save us and help put out  the fire.”

“Okay, okay! The pig is amazing. But why the peg leg?” the bartender demanded.

“An amazing pig like this. You can’t eat it all at once.”

 

HAVE A TREMENDOUS DAY….

so, a few years back i’m listening to a BOBBY VEE greatest hits album….and all of a sudden a song comes on that LEO SAYER covered…and i honestly didn’t know it was a BOBBY VEE hit…here’s “MORE THAN I CAN SAY.”

http://youtu.be/C-5lT7MecMw

6.  do you know what is the most underrated thing in the world?  A SUNDAY AFTERNOON NAP…wow…they should be REQUIRED….there’s nothing better on the weekend than to put on my jammies after a couple of church services and crawl under the covers……aaahhh…i could do it again right now just thinking about it…….

7.  when i went to school at CAMPBELL-TINTAH school in CAMPBELL, MINNESOTA, there was a girl in the class who was crazy over me…seriously, she was….and i just wanted to be friends…she bought me a bracelet for christmas…….i spurned her advances, even though everyone in the class was bugging me and putting notes in my locker, stuff like that….she was a very nice girl, i just didn’t want to date at that time….i was saddened to read the FARGO FORUM over the weekend to find out that she died….she had cancer…..that makes me sad……it scares me when younger people pass away, but it really hits home when it’s someone you know…..REST IN PEACE MICHELLE…..

8.  last night we went to see “STAR TREK INTO DARKNESS.”  in a word?  AWESOME….in a bunch of words?  INCREDIBLE…SPECTACULAR….AS GOOD OR BETTER THAN THE FIRST ONE….in case you can’t tell by my tone, we loved it……and it’s amazing how dead on these characters are to the original cast…they just play younger versions…..and it doesn’t matter if you’re a “TREKKIE”, you will still love it…..

and it shows the beginnings of one of CAPTAIN KIRK’S biggest enemies…..i won’t say who it is…you’ll have to find out….

10.  remember last week when i talked about the exodus from SATURDAY NIGHT LIVE?  well, i found out about two more that are now gone……what in the world is going to happen to that show?  i already told you about SETH MEYERS and BILL HADER leaving….but now….

jason-sudeikis-gq-s-gentleman-s-ball-2011-02

Fred_Armisen_by_David_Shankbone

okay…here’s the deal….”SATURDAY NIGHT LIVE” has lived thru many many stars leaving before….CHEVY CHASE…BILL MURRAY…KRISTIN WIEG, JOHN BELUSHI….and the list goes on and on…they’ll live thru this, but this is some MAJOR TALENT to leave at once and MAJOR TALENT to try and replace….can’t wait till next season to see what happens……..

11.  JOKE OF THE DAY:

A man walks into a shoe store, and tries on a pair of shoes.

“How do they feel?” asks the sales clerk.

“Well they feel a bit tight,” replies the man.

The assistant promptly bends down and has a look at the shoes and at the man’s feet.

“Try pulling the tongue out,” the clerk says.

“Well, theyth sthill feelth a bith tighth.”

HAVE A GREAT DAY…

8.  famed tv psychologist and columnist DR. JOYCE BROTHERS died this week at age 85…….she was seen on so many shows including “LAUGH IN” and many many talk shows…..when i was young, i actually thought she was an actress playing the part of psychologist…..because she was on so many shows…..remember her?

BILL HADER…YOU WILL BE MISSED….

 

10. JOKE OF THE DAY:

 

After being with her all evening, the man couldn’t take another minute with his blind date. Earlier, he had secretly arranged to have a friend call him to the phone so he would have an excuse to leave if something like this happened.
When he returned to the table, he lowered his eyes, put on a grim expression and said, “I have some bad news. My grandfather just died.”
“Thank heavens,” his date replied. “If yours hadn’t, mine would have had to!”

HAVE AN AWESOME DAY…
