1. LET’S DO SOME CRAZY STUFF…
I pray this guy didn’t eat chili the night before!!!
ADMIT IT…YOU LOOKED!!!!
wow…the person who decorates at this nursing home SHOULD BE FIRED!!!
yep…this is how my Monday is going……
YEP…THIS SHOULD RELIEVE SOME STRESS…..
and finally, YEP, I WANT THIS!!!
2. Well, the Olympics are over……no big deal to me…….In fact, all I watched was HOCKEY….USA HOCKEY….very disappointed in what they did…especially the blowout for the bronze….anyway….
YEP….LET’S DO THIS!!! my favorite team, the MINNESOTA WILD are going to be pushing for the playoffs during the last portion of the season….I am proud to announce that I have tickets for me and my boys for early April against my son Tyler’s favorite team, the PITTSBURGH PENGUINS….the only problem was that I played thru the nose for them……..
3. We lost a couple of celebrities over the weekend….veteran NBC newsman GARRICK UTLEY died at the age of 74….he was with NBC for decades……
and, sadly, the last surviving “VON TRAPP” family member is dead….these are not the movie kids, but the REAL VON TRAPP family…..the movie “THE SOUND OF MUSIC” was, of course, based on this family…..
MARIA VON TRAPP died this weekend at the age of 99…yeah, 99…wow…..here she is recently, including one of her pointing herself out on the family picture….
4. speaking of “THE SOUND OF MUSIC”, that movie will go down in my top ten favorite of all time…..Our beloved band director at LANGFORD, TERRY OSBORNE, rented a theater in SIOUX FALLS when we were down there for marching band….our entire band sat there anticipating what movie was going to start…..when it started, a few people booed….but when it was done, EVERYBODY CHEERED…what a tremendous movie……
recently the original cast members got together for a mini reunion…here’s their picture….
5. the fabulous actor ABE VIGODA turns 93 today…yep, he’s still around…remember him from “BARNEY MILLER” and “FISH?” I always thought he looked so crabby, but he had a great personality….here is the birthday boy years ago and recently…..
remember the hilarious ABE VIGODA commercial for “SNICKERS?” with, of course, the beautiful BETTY WHITE…..
6. a popular singer from the 70’s and 80’s has a birthday today….RUPERT HOLMES turns 67 today….I’m sure you remember his hits…including a massive number one…..
here’s the follow up to that big hit…..
and, yet a THIRD song from his debut album……
here’s RUPERT HOLMES today at 67……
7. I WON’T DISAPPOINT…of course I’ll play some music…..
here’s the song that EVERYBODY can sing along with….”ESCAPE”….otherwise known as “THE PINA COLADA SONG.”
I personally thought the song that came out after “ESCAPE” was just as good….if not, dare I say, better? here’s “HIM.”
and here’s the third song off the album…it didn’t do as well as the other two songs, but was good, nonetheless…..it’s “ANSWERING MACHINE.”
8. a very beautiful woman has a birthday tomorrow….actress KAREN GRASSLE turns 72….you probably best know her for playing the gorgeous “CAROLINE INGALLS” on “LITTLE HOUSE ON THE PRAIRIE.” yes, she was the matriarch of the family……
KAREN GRASSLE is still a beautiful woman at 72……
9. So, that salute had me thinking about the rest of the cast…let’s find out where they are today……
we’ll start out with “PA INGALLS.” most of us know that MICHAEL LANDON died of cancer back in 1991…in fact, he announced that he was dying on the “TONIGHT SHOW WITH JOHNNY CARSON.” he was on the show only TWO MONTHS before he died…..MICHAEL LANDON is also known for playing “LITTLE JOE CARTWRIGHT” on “BONANZA.”
And, MICHAEL LANDON teamed up with his “LITTLE HOUSE” co-star VICTOR FRENCH on the tv show “HIGHWAY TO HEAVEN.”
I was SO IN LOVE with the actress who played “MARY.” Her name is MELISSA SUE ANDERSON….her eyes about killed me every time I saw her….MELISSA is now 51……
the “star” of the show as MELISSA GILBERT who played “HALF PINT” or “LAURA INGALLS.” she was played by the beautiful actress MELISSA GILBERT…I always known when her birthday is…..it’s three days after mine…..May 8th…..in fact, MELISSA will turn FIFTY three days after I turn FIFTY….
As with a lot of shows, “LITLE HOUSE” used a set of twins to play the youngest daughter “CARRIE.” their names are LINDSAY AND SIDNEY GREENBUSH…..they are now 43…..and yes they’re twins…and YES THEY WERE BORN ON THE SAME DAY….ha ha
and finally, actor MATTHEW LABYORTEAUX played “ALBERT INGALLS.” he is now 47…..
10. IS IT THE NFL SEASON YET? SHEESH…HURRY UP!!!
11. JOKE OF THE DAY:
A man and his wife enter a dentist’s office. The wife says “I need a tooth pulled. No gas or Novocain — I’m in a terrible hurry. Just pull the tooth as quickly as possible.” “You’re a brave woman,” says the dentist. “Now, show me which tooth it is.” The wife turns to her husband and says, “Open your mouth and show the dentist which tooth it is, dear.”
HAVE A WONDERFUL DAY MY FRIENDS….
