3.  a great character actor is knocking on the door to 80…..it’s JAMIE FARR, who played “KLINGER” on the hit tv show “M*A*S*H”….i’m sure you remember him, right?

KLINGER always wanted to be sent home from the war because he was “crazy.”  his thing was “wouldn’t a crazy person wear women’s clothing?”  he was actually one of the great characters on that great show……JAMIE FARR is 79 years old today…one year away from 80….that just doesn’t seem right, but it is….here’s JAMIE FARR recently……

4.  a true rock and roll icon from the 70’s and 80’s is having a birthday today, too…..DEBORAH HARRY, the lead singer of the group “BLONDIE” turns 68 today….(OH MY GOD…SHE’S MY MOM AND DAD’S AGE….SCARY….)  i’m sure you remember this young lady……..

5.  ALRIGHT, LET’S PARTY WITH SOME “BLONDIE” MUSIC…..

 

this is my favorite “BLONDIE” hit…my papa hated my music, but he loved this song for some reason….”ONE WAY OR ANOTHER.”

this next one was one of my favorite pep band songs to play at good old LANGFORD HIGH SCHOOL….here’s “THE TIDE IS HIGH.”

http://youtu.be/8Ak06IseGgg

 

and here’s the disco classic “HEART OF GLASS.”

6.  what a tragedy…i’m so sad today over the loss of around 19 firefighters in ARIZONA yesterday……there’s a huge ARIZONA wildfire going, and a group of firefighters who are trained to be in the hottest spots of the fire, were apparently engulfed and lost their lives…..my heart breaks for the families left behind from these brave brave warriors….and i cannot even IMAGINE the horror these people must have felt in their last few minutes and seconds…..awful…..i was once fighting a grass fire with the WARNER fire department when i was on it, and i was just about dumped into the grass fire…..and the truck would have rolled over me in the process…..and that was on a very very minor scale compared to the forest fires…….our deepest sympathies are going out to the families….pray for them…they’re going to need it…..

these “hotshots” get right into the action….they carry equipment that weighs 50 pounds or more…and they SLEEP near the fire action……dedication….that’s all i can say is dedication………

7.  we went out on saturday night with some friends and went to see the movie “WORLD WAR Z.” 

WWZ

 

well, it was OKAY…nothing great…..my wife loves ZOMBIE movies, so she was loving it a lot….it had a pretty good story…the zombies were awesome….very fast moving….almost got you dizzy in places…..my friends thought it would have been a good rental……

 

8.  tragedy in LAS VEGAS…an acrobat with “CIRQUE DU SOLEIL” was killed this weekend when something went wrong during the show…….how horrible….imagine being there with your family watching the show and seeing this horrible event unfold……these people do countless shows, and if one thing is off, if one thing is not in sync, things can go wrong…and for this poor young woman, it did…..

 

9.  well, my MINNESOTA WILD hockey team made a trade yesterday that i’m not in favor of…..fan favorite CAL CLUTTERBUCK was traded to the NEW YORK ISLANDERS for a man called “EN NINO”…his name is NINO NIEDERREITER…….he was the number five overall pick in 2010……

nino2_062510

 

i’ll have to see the guy play before i pass final judgement…i’ll  just say this…CAL CLUTTERBUCK made the game fun….his hard hits and penalty moments are legendary……

Minnesota+Wild+v+Washington+Capitals+HkhSjkR0tnYl

 

and, of course, i just picked up a CLUTTERBUCK t-shirt a couple of weeks ago…oh well, i’m still wearing it….maybe it will be my new jammies addition…..yes, i said JAMMIES…..(my wife hates it when i call them that…ha ha)

 

10.  LAST NIGHT WAS A GLORIOUS NIGHT……my wife, my son TYLER and I had supper together and gathered around the television to watch the first episode of the final season of “DEXTER.”

dexter_final_season_8-1280x720

 

if you have watched “DEXTER”, you know what all the excitement is about…he’s a serial killer who also works at a job where he disects bodies to see how they died……the last few seasons have been INCREDIBLE, and now we’re all guessing how this final season will end……..WILL HE DIE?  WILL HIS SISTER KILL HIM?  WILL HE KILL HIMSELF?  WILL THE ENTIRE THING BE A DREAM?  only time will tell….but my son guaranteed us one thing last night…he will be over EVERY sunday night for supper for awhile…and that’s very much okay with us…….just wish MITCHELL could be there too….

 

11.  JOKE OF THE DAY:

A doctor walks into a room full of patients at a mental institution, takes out a pen, and draws a door on the wall. He then tells all the patients that whoever wants to escape, should use that door. Immediately they all rush towards it, but of course cannot go through. However, one patient sits still in the back with a smile on his face. He has not moved at all. The doctor thinks he must be cured. He then asks the patient why he did not rush to the door, and the patient whispers, “They don’t know that I’m the one who has the key.”

 

HAVE A TREMENDOUS DAY MY FRIENDS…
