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….

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…
