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

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……

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….
