I’ll probably never eat this candy bar again.


I should pass this along to a few witches that I know…hee hee hee


Speaking of Jay’s ridiculous puns…..


Just take a little off the side please.


I can’t remember if I posted the next one before or not, but it’s still hilarious.


2.  Alright, I will admit, there are SOME scary costumes out there today for Halloween.  HOWEVER, I find costumes from years ago to be the scariest.  I’m talking back in the 40’s and 50’s or earlier. Check out these creepy pics.




I have to admit.  These give me the willies.  I have probably seen too many horror movies.

4.  IT’S CANDY TIME.  It’s the same conversation every year.  “Do we REALLY need this much candy?  Seriously?”  And, every single year THIS happens!!


5.  This time of year always makes me think about Halloween’s past.  I remember numerous times trudging thru a foot of snow trying to get free candy.  I remember many times having it so cold that we had to wear our coats over our costumes, so it really didn’t matter what our costume was. 

But, I also remember the cool costumes.  The next three pics are some of my favorites.  The first one is me and my brother Troy back in our Grandparent’s Coast To Coast store in Britton, SD.  Troy is on the left.  DIG THOSE PANTS!!


A couple of years ago my buddy Rob and I went as my favorite comedy duo, “Laurel and Hardy.”


And, probably my favorite costume was back around 1992 in Lisbon, ND when I dressed up as Pee Wee Herman.  (before his theater arrest…YIKES.)


My son Tyler was two and was TERRIFIED of me.  Come to think of it, I did look kind of creepy.

6.  Time stops for nobody.  We hear that all the time.  I look in the mirror sometimes and cannot believe that I’m 51, gray, and pudgy.  High school seems like it wasn’t so far away, and the birth of my sons SURELY doesn’t feel like 25 and 23 years ago.

With that said, one of Hollywood’s iconic characters turned 70 today.  Well, actually the person playing the character turned 70.  Ready for this?  HENRY WINKLER IS 70!!!!  Yeah, “the FONZ” is seventy. 


Here is what Henry Winkler looks like at 70.  Not bad at all!

7.  Sad news in the NBA.  Sad news for all of us Minnesota Timberwolves fans.  Our leader, coach, and general manager has died.  Flip Saunders was only 60 when he passed away this past week.  Way too young. 


His team is devastated.  But they did something very cool.  They dedicated their first game the other night to Flip’s memory.  And guess what?  They went out to Los Angeles and beat THE LAKERS BY ONE POINT.  When I went to bed they were down by 15.  Pretty impressive.

Immediately after his death tributes began streaming in.  Non more special than Kevin Garnett’s photo of himself sitting by Flip’s parking spot.  Very moving.


The Timberwolves are loaded with talent.  Perhaps this is the year they turn things around and become a playoff team.  And they will do it all in the memory of the great Flip Saunders.

8.  You probably don’t know the name Dick Maugg.  I didn’t either until I read the article on his this week.  Dick Maugg passed away recently at the age of 83.  Don’t know him?  You probably do.  He was the silent member of the Bartles and Jaymes TV commercials from years ago.  That’s him on the left.


They had some real creative commercials back then.  By the way, the founder of Bartles and Jaymes wine coolers is Ed Jaymes.  He died of a heart attack in 1996 at the age of only 61.  That’s him on the right in this photo.  I haven’t had a Bartles and Jaymes in years.  Don’t know if they are even around anymore.  I may have to enjoy one again, in honor of Dick Maugg.

9.  Comedian David Spade of “Saturday Night Live” has a brand new memoir out.


Almost interesting.  That’s an extremely funny title.

David Spade, in his book verifies what SNL creator Lorne Michaels has said, and many other SNL alumni have said.  He said that the worst host ever on SNL was…..ready for this?



They said that he was hard to work with and didn’t find a lot of stuff funny.  Oh well, you can’t win them all.  SNL has had some other incredible hosts over the years.  Steve Martin, Martin Short, Alec Baldwin.  The list goes on.  You are going to always once in awhile get a Steven Seagal.  That’s Hollywood. 


Three vampires went into a bar and sat down. The barmaid came over to take their orders. “And what would you, er, gentlemen like tonight?”
The first vampire said, “I’ll have a mug of blood.” The second vampire said, “I’ll have a mug of blood.” The third vampire shook his head at his companions and said, “I’ll have a glass of plasma.”
The barmaid wrote down each order, went to the bar and called to the bartender, “Two bloods and a blood light”.


There was a haunted house on the outskirts of the town which was avoided by all the townfolk – the ghost which ‘lived’ there was feared by all.

However, an enterprising journalist decided to get the scoop of the day by photographing the fearsome phantom. When he entered the house, armed with only his camera, the ghost descended upon him, clanking chains and all. He told the ghost “I mean no harm – I just want your photograph”. The ghost was quite happy at this chance to make the headlines – he posed for a number of ghostly shots.

The happy journalist rushed back to his dark room, and began developing the photos. Unfortunately, they turned out to be black and underexposed.

So what’s the moral of the story?

The spirit was willing but the flash was weak.
