This one always cracks me up….


Sadly, this next one is true for me…ha ha


How about a little poultry humor?


HMMM…i’ve always wondered about the next one….


Wow, that is some great work!!!

And finally…..


2.  As you probably know, my boys and I are going to Washington, DC in October to see my beloved Redskins play football.  We are also doing a bunch of historical touring….I love going to DC…I am a huge history buff, so I am in second heaven when I go there….

One of the things we are signed up for is a tour of FedEx Field, where my favorite team plays……The only catch is, we are the first three to sign up…They must have 20 people in order to take the tour…All three of us will be brokenhearted if we can’t take the tour……One of the highlights of the tour is going in the Redskins locker room…..Yep, I may wet myself……..



3. Speaking of football, here are a couple of NFL notes to talk about…….

****First of all, some terribly sad news….Former Tennessee Titans kicker Rob Bironas was killed over the weekend in a car accident in Tennessee…….This impacted my son Tyler the most, because he is a diehard Titans fan, and loved Bironas…….Rob will go down in history as the FOURTH most accurate kicker in NFL history….How about that?  Sadly, also, he just got married to Terry Bradshaw’s daughter Rachel……




Rob Bironas was killed less than a mile from his home…He was only 36……

****Well, I could have predicted this one….RG3 is hurt and Kirk Cousins is in….And, if you are keeping track, Kirk is kicking butt and taking names…Wow…He is playing incredibly great, in fact, many people are thinking that if he keeps it up, my Skins might have to trade RG3 and keep Cousins to be their franchise quarterback….My opinion?  That’s okay with me…..I am still a huge fan of RG3 and always will be….But it all comes down to winning games………And RG3 hasn’t been able to keep healthy much in his few years in the NFL…..I will tell you this….If RG3 comes back and my Skins trade Kirk Cousins, I will throw A FIT……..

By the way, the nickname game has already started….First there was RG3…And now?



Kirk Cousins

****And, in Minnesota, the Teddy Bridgewater era is UNDERWAY…..Matt Cassel was injured last week, and just today was placed the injured reserve list, which means his season is over……And, “Teddy mania” is sweeping the upper midwest….Hang on folks….It’s going to take a little time for Teddy to adapt….Will he be great?  All signs point to yes…….But remember, we have all been excited before about rookie quarterbacks, and some of them have been total busts……


4.  My wife and I went to see a play in Aberdeen this past weekend at the Capitol Theater…I am not much on plays, but I am SO VERY GLAD that we went to this one, because it is, so far, the best play I have EVER seen, and I have seen plays at the Guthrie and Chanhassen…..The play was called “Leading Ladies.” 


We were blown away by the actors, especially the young red headed man, who is, get this….SIXTEEN YEARS OLD……My friend Kelsey also appeared in it, and she was MARVELOUS……The play centered on a couple of con men who were trying to get into the will of a rich lady who was dying….The only problem was, the two people who were named in the will were WOMEN….So, you guessed it….They dressed up as women…and then men…and then women…..I can’t imagine how fast they had to get changed…Anyway, hats off to Aberdeen Community Theater, proving once again, that you don’t have to travel to the “big city” for quality plays!!!!!

5.  Country music has lost their “International Ambassador Of Country Music.”  George Hamilton IV, died last week in Nashville after suffering a heart attack….He was 77 years old….George grew up listening to my favorite singer, Hank Williams……He then took on singing on his own, and because a member of the Grand Ole Opry….George Hamilton IV is known for a few hits, but none bigger than his 1963 hit that was produced by Chet Atkins……





If you ever had the chance to meet him, you will remember him as an extremely nice, soft voiced man…..Very pleasant……Remember his hit?

6.  Well, some people are getting my gander up again……I have had so much trouble lately with people driving in the LEFT LANE, which is the turning lane on our streets, in some cases…..If it’s not for turning, it’s CERTAINLY for passing other vehicles….The other day, we had a packed line in the right lane, and one guy driving 15 MPH in the left lane……Yep, you guessed it…My road rage set in…..ha ha….I need to relax more when driving…..But, I have always had trouble accepting poor driving skills…..Just this morning, I almost rear ended a guy who decided to switch lanes and hurry up and turn, with NO BLINKERS ON…..That would have REALLY upset me….

7.  I have good news and bad news concerning one of my favorite rock and roll bands of all time…..



The good news concerning AC/DC is that they are now recording their first album in six years called “Rock Or Bust.”   The sad news is, they are doing it WITHOUT founding member Malcolm Young, who has an “undisclosed illness”, although the rumor mill says it is cancer……..This will be the first time in 41 years that Malcolm has not recorded or toured with his band….Very sad……..Here is Malcolm Young, including a picture with his brother Angus, who formed the band with him……

AC/DC BLACK ICE TOUR; Madison Square Garden; Dan Acquilante


I have had the pleasure of seeing AC/DC in concert two times, and hopefully, there will be a third…..It also thrills me that both of my boys have already seen this rock and roll legendary band…..


After just a few years of marriage, filled with constant arguments, a young man and his wife decided the only way to save their marriage was to try counseling. They had been at each other’s throat for some time and felt that this was their last straw. When they arrived at the counselor’s office, the counselor jumped right in and opened the floor for discussion.

“What seems to be the problem?” Immediately, the husband held his long face down without anything to say. On the other hand, the wife began talking 90 miles an hour describing all the wrongs within their marriage.

After 5…10…15 minutes of listening to the wife, the counselor went over to her, picked her up by her shoulders, kissed her passionately for several minutes, and sat her back down. Afterwards, the wife sat there speechless.

He looked over at the husband who was staring in disbelief at what had happened. The counselor spoke to the husband, “Your wife NEEDS that at least twice a week!”

The husband scratched his head and replied, “I can have her here every Tuesday and Thursday.”



I ACTUALLY HAVE THIS WEEKEND OFF…YEE HAW…..this is what I’m going to be doing….frolicking in the fields with flowers in my hair…hee hee


Your blog is sponsored by PIERSON FORD IN ABERDEEN….You wouldn’t believe our lot right now……The 2015’s are pouring in, and we MUST make room for them by getting rid of the 2014’s…..Which means one thing…TREMENDOUS SAVINGS….Yep, our 2014’s are priced to move……I MEAN REALLY MOVE…..And if it’s a 2015 you want, we have a great selection of them, with literally, trucks coming in every couple of days……

Yeah, this guy is in trouble DEEP….no pun intended…….


Halloween candy has been out for like four months, so this one is appropriate….


I think about my sister Lisa when I see this next one…She used to “cook” for me when she was young….


I hope this next one is never me….


And now, the nominees for “most creative answer” in school…Aw heck, just give him the award…..


And finally, yep…true….very true…..


2.  Well, since we last spoke, my WASHINGTON REDSKINS lost to the HOUSTON TEXANS in week one of the NFL…Here’s the deal…You CANNOT lose two fumbles within the 10 yard line and expect to win!!!!  Oh well, we may rebound this weekend against the JACKSONVILLE JAGUARS….I sincerely hope we start winning, being me and the boys are flying out to watch them in October!!!  ha ha


I thought the best comment about the REDSKINS and how they played last Sunday was given by Redskins special teams coach BEN KOTWICA….He compared their loss to the Titanic….He said this….”The food was great….the music sounded wonderful…..and then we hit the iceberg.”   Pretty darn creative if you ask me…..

The only thing that took away the sting of the loss was the fact that our arch enemy, the DALLAS COWBOYS were humiliated at home by the SAN FRANCISCO 49’ERS…..


3.  The hit TV show “MARRIED WITH CHILDREN” ran for 11 seasons and produced 259 incredibly funny episodes…..Recently the cast got together for “The Mom” on the show, KATEY SAGAL, to receive her “Hollywood Star.”  You probably remember what they looked like when the show started in 1987……


Since the show ended, the cast has had a bunch of success.  Here’s what they look like today……

Katey Sagal Honored On The Hollywood Walk Of Fame

4.  Back when I was in junior high, I had an INCREDIBLE crush on KRISTI MCNICHOL.  And seriously, how could I not?


KRISTI went on to start in great shows like “FAMILY”, and “EMPTY NEST.”  She turns 52 years old today…..Here is what she looks like today……


Do you remember her brother JIMMY MCNICHOL? 


He is now 53 years old…..And here is what he looks like today…..


5.  We lost of couple of celebrities since we last spoke…..The lastest one is RICHARD KIEL…He played the villain “JAWS” on the JAMES BOND movie “THE SPY WHO LOVED ME.”


RICHARD KIEL was 74 when he passed away this week…..


Here he is in 2007 with JAMES BOND himself, actor ROGER MOORE…..


ROGER MOORE by the way, is now 86 years old….Here he is with actor MICHAEL CAINE who is now 81…..


6.  And of course, unless you’ve been living under a rock, you know that JOAN RIVERS has died at the age of 81…..Not meaning to be disrespectful to her, I have to tell you that I was never a huge fan…..I appreciate what she did for women comedians, and for what she did for the comedy circuit in general….I enjoyed her comedy, but was never a “huge fan.”  And that’s okay…We can’t be huge fans of everybody……

And then, the plastic surgery nightmare happened….


Here’s one with her daughter MELISSA….



Ol’ Fred had been a religious man who was in the hospital, near death. The family called their preacher to stand with them. As the preacher stood next to the bed, Ol’ Fred’s condition appeared to deteriorate and he motioned frantically for something to write on.

The pastor lovingly handed him a pen and a piece of paper, and Ol’ Fred used his last bit of energy to scribble a note, then he died. The preacher thought it best not to look at the note at that time, so he placed it in his jacket pocket.

At the funeral, as he was finishing the message, he realized that he was wearing the same jacket that he was wearing when Ol’ Fred died.

He said, “You know, Ol’ Fred handed me a note just before he died. I haven’t looked at it, but knowing Fred, I’m sure there’s a word of inspiration there for us all.”

He opened the note, and read out loud, “Hey, you’re standing on my oxygen tube?”




SORRY…it’s been awhile…life has been crazy…..I had two funerals last week, plus family services, and three church meetings besides that….plus working full time here….it gets a bit overwhelming sometimes, and last week was one of them…..

HOWEVER, I’m ready to rock and roll again…so let’s get going…..

Hmmm….I have been wrong all of this time about what a “DECOY” is used for when it comes to birds……




This is for all of the NDSU fans out there…ha ha….




This next one is TOTALLY my sense of humor…in fact, I’ve used it before…BIG SHOCK, RIGHT?




This one actually made me laugh out loud today…..




And to think, I did it wrong all of those years ago…….




And finally, I’m probably going to pay for this one…..





2.  OKAY…soapbox first…then some more fun….


I am not a big fan of war….I know that we need to go sometimes, and I support that…..I have nothing but respect for the military and it’s soldiers who put their lives on the line so that I can write stupid blogs……and say what I want….I just hate seeing our people killed in battle or having to live their lives with permanent injuries…..come to think of it, I don’t think ANYONE is a big FAN of wars…..


With that said, we have some whack jobs and nutcases that we need to deal with….These beheadings of our media members is insane……How anyone could do this is beyond me….and they do it in the name of GOD?  Obviously not the same GOD that I have……


We need to act quickly…..we need to eradicate those people who don’t value life…..And if they are a threat to our freedom, then we need to do something, just like we did in other wars when our freedom was threatened….We just cannot sit by and watch this happen over and over again…..


And a work to our leaders…..STOP GIVING OUR PLANS OUT ON WORLDWIDE TV….That drives me up a wall….”Here’s what we intend to do.”  NO….BE QUIET…Just do it and let us know the outcome…..it sucks when we continually give our enemies a chance to run and hide……



3.  A little sad news for you…..the lead singer of the band “SURVIVOR” has died…..JIMI JAMISON was 63 when he died of a heart attack in Memphis the other day……JIMI JAMISON did not sing lead on “EYE OF THE TIGER” but he sang lead on the other hits…..







4.   When I saw this picture, it made me laugh, and it brought back memories of my childhood…..




Many of you probably remember as children, going to RAPID CITY, SOUTH DAKOTA and having the donkeys roam up to your car and look for food…..This is about the face that I had in a couple of pictures in our scrapbook when I was probably seven years old, or younger…..It was terrifying having this great big head and great big teeth right next to you…ha ha….We could also get out of the car and feed them by hand…….Ahhh….great memories…oh wait, terrifying memories…ha ha…..



5.  check this out….




Isn’t that funny when you think about it?  I do believe that there is life other than us in the universe….There has to be…..Do I believe that they have ventured into our world?  Yes, I do….Maybe I am crazy for it, but I do believe that they have……These “crop circles” and “cows turned inside out” are something very freaky……and what about “area 51?”  It seems like they are hiding SOMETHING there…..I just wish that, if there is something there, that our officials would be honest with us…..But, then again, why start being honest now, right?



6.  Can you believe that they remake movie of the “LITTLE RASCALS” is twenty years old?  Man, time flies….The original gang got together from that movie and redid their movie poster….This is MAJORLY COOL……






This is sure wetting my appetite to watch it again….Of course though, I am a HUGE fan of the original “LITTLE RASCALS”…I even own some of their shows……







Quite possibly the best thing to come around is the “NFL CHANNEL”, which kept me sane during the offseason…ha ha….I am completely excited to watch my WASHINGTON REDSKINS play this Sunday against the HOUSTON TEXANS…I am excited to see what our new head coach can do…JAY GRUDEN took over for MIKE SHANAHAN, who had a disastrous few years in our nations capital…..


I am so pumped, because in a few weeks, my boys and I will travel to D.C. to watch my SKINS play TYLER’S TENNESSEE TITANS…..


And, of course, with the onset of football, I must continue my attack on others teams…ha ha….


This first one is hilarious, but it pains me, because the VIKINGS are my second favorite team….But, history doesn’t lie…it’s true…


It’s the VIKINGS trophy case…..




And, of course, I have to take a shot at my most least liked team….ha ha….





8.  Well, during the LABOR DAY weekend my wife and I along with a couple of friends went to the SOUTH DAKOTA STATE FAIR in HURON to see the legendary rock band “BOSTON.”  This was the second time I have seen them and they were WAY BETTER this time around……..




“BOSTON” founder, lead guitar player, producer, writer, and pretty much the brains and backbone of the band, TOM SCHOLZ was amazing….he is now 67 years old and certainly doesn’t look it……




It makes me sad that our biggest part of concert going is over for the years….However, I just ordered tickets to see “AMERICA” when we are out in D.C……You probably remember that I saw them a few months ago…Yes, they are that good that I want to go again……




No one in this town could catch any fish except this one man.
The game warden asked him how he did it so the man told the game warden that he would take him fishing the next day… Once they got to the middle of the lake the man took out a stick of dynamite, lit it, and threw it in the water. After the explosion fish started floating to the top of the water. The man took out a net and started picking up the fish. The game warden told him that this was illegal. The man took out another stick of dynamite and lit it. He then handed it to the game warden and said ” are you going to fish or talk?”
