this next one made me laugh out loud….



i’ll bet my angel feels like this periodically…..ha ha…

this one should crack you up….



i’ll bet if kids had the power, they would probably do this….



2.  you know what makes me laugh?   something I saw again this morning coming into work….I love seeing an extra large bird flying in the sky with a small bird pecking at them……you’d think the big one would turn around and EAT the little one…ha ha….but, I always root for the underdog…or underbird in this case…….


3.  okay…on to the sad news…they say that celebrity deaths go in “three’s”….well, I have three….first of all someone I have actually met….


a former “WIZARD OF OZ” munchkin is dead…..MARGARET PELLEGRINI was 89 years old…she died from a stroke….she appeared in ABERDEEN at the “OZ FESTIVAL”  a few years back…you cannot even imagine the thrill I had of meeting a star of my favorite movie of all time…..i’m sure you remember her…she was one of the “flowerpot” girls….



check this out….it’s MARGARET PELLEGRINI talking about “THE WIZARD OF OZ.”



here’s MARGARET PELLEGRINI recently, and from a few years ago with the other remaining munckins, JERRY MAREN and KARL SLOVER….more on them to come…..





she was an incredibly nice lady…rest in peace my dear….


4.  as far as I know, TWO munchkins remain…..KARL SLOVER, who is on the left of MARGARET in the above picture, died in 2011 at the age of 93…….that leaves JERRY MAREN, who is now 93, and RUTH DUCCINI, who is 95…..she had a smaller role in the movie….no pun intended……..here’s JERRY MAREN in recent times…..



5.  actress EILEEN BRENNAN died recently at the age of 80…you’ll probably best remember her for starring in “PRIVATE BENJAMIN.”




here’s EILEEN BRENNAN in recent years….

"Slap Her...She's" French Premiere


6.  and, COSMO ALLEGRETTI died this week at the age of 86….don’t know the name?  you’ll know his characters….COSMO was the voice and hand of many characters on “CAPTAIN KANGAROO.”  by hand, I mean that he was the puppeteer….some of his characters included MR. MOOSE, BUNNY RABBIT, GRANDFATHER CLOCK, THE DANCING BEAR, and his famous role as “DENNIS THE PAINTER.” here is is with “THE CAPTAIN” BOB KEESHAN….






no recent pictures can be found of COSMO ALLEGRETTI….


7.  okay, enough sad news…let’s do some happy news….

FOOTBALL IS HERE…YAY!!!!  as I mentioned before, I cannot wait until tonight when my WASHINGTON REDSKINS hit the field against my son TYLER’S TENNESSEE TITANS….we’re watching the game on a computer tonight….hey, beggars can’t be choosers…….


I know that we won’t see a lot of starters play in the game…but, it’s just exciting knowing that the NFL season is here……by the way, we’re FIVE WEEKS away from our trip to GREEN BAY for the PACKERS-REDSKINS game….time will drag until then…ha ha…..




A police officer pulls over a driver and informs him that he has just
won $5,000 in a safety competition, all because he is wearing his seat

“What are you going to do with the prize money?” the officer asks.

The man responds, “I guess I’ll go to driving school and get my license.”

His wife says, “Officer, don’t listen to him. He’s a smart aleck when he’s drunk.”

The guy in the back seat pops up out from under the blanket and says, “I knew we wouldn’t get far in this stolen car.”

Just then a knock comes from the trunk and a voice calls out, “Are we over the border yet?”
