I knew something like this would eventually happen.


I actually was with a guy who made this mistake!  I’m surprised that I haven’t.


I’m all for a good prank, but this may be pushing it a WEE BIT too far.  ha ha


In my shower I’m a Grammy award winner!




I used this next one before, but I saw it again and laughed out loud again, so, yeah, I’m sharing it again!


2.  I am so proud and happy to be living in Warner, SD.  Not only are we 9 miles from Aberdeen, but we’re also a small town.  Around 400 if I am recalling correctly.  9 miles is perfect because by the time I get home I feel like I’m 50 miles from work.  Love that feeling.

Anywho, I have talked on my blog before about the unbelievable success that my Warner Monarchs have had in sports, and now I can prove it.  We have a sign up as you enter Warner and it kind of tells the whole story.  IMPRESSIVE!!


There aren’t many small towns anywhere that can claim this kind of success.  And the best part?  The kids have all been so down home and humble.  It makes success that much sweeter.

3.  I have shocking news!!  Actress Beth Howland died at the age of 74.  She played the ditzy Vera on the TV show “Alice.” 


That’s not the shocking part.  The shocking part is that she died on New Year’s Eve!!  It was her wishes to keep it quiet until now, so her husband did.  By the way, I had no idea that her husband was Charles Kimbrough who played the uptight newsman on “Murphy Brown.”


I used to love the show “Alice”.  Vera made it fun.  She seemed to never catch on to anything, and always had the comedic stylings that brought the house down.


4.  Out of the girls, only two are left.  Polly Holliday is now 78 years old.  She played Flo, who had the catch phrase “KISS MY GRITS.”  It was usually directed at Mel, the cook and owner of Mel’s Diner.  Here is Polly today.  Looks great for being close to 80.


And the star of the show is still alive.  Linda Lavin played “Alice”, and she also is 78.


5.  WILBUR!!!!  That’s the name the talking horse Mr. Ed used to yell out.  In fact, Wilbur Post was the only human being that could hear Mr. Ed.  Of course, Mr. Ed was a very popular TV show a few decades ago, and now we find out that the guy who played Wilbur has died at the age of 96.  Alan Young held the role as Wilbur during the show’s run, and was still active in meeting fans up until close to his death.


Alan Young looked pretty good in his old age, and I’m not horsing around.  OKAY, that was bad.


In truth, I didn’t even know that Mr. Young was still around.  So many are gone from that era that I really hadn’t thought about it.  Alan Young led a pretty productive 96 years on this earth.

6.  This political season is driving people crazy to the point that I declared that I would probably vote for ROSS PEROT again this year.  Now that’s a crazy political season.  I saw this next picture and had to share it with you.  There’s a ton of truth in it.

Extremely Funny Jokes (19)

Political pundits have been saying that never in our country’s past have two Presidential candidates been so despised by people.  Something to the tune of around 57 percent of the people polled not liking either candidate.  This election season has already been ugly, and I’m afraid it’s about to get a whole lot uglier.

7.  I was reading People magazine the other day and I was totally caught up in the front page story.  It was about the tragic death of the beautiful actress Natalie Wood.


You may recall that she drown back in 1981 under what some people say are “suspicious” conditions.  This article tells the story of her children and how they coped with losing their Mom at such a young age.  Natalie Wood was only 43. 

Natalie Wood has a “fairytale” Hollywood marriage to Robert Wagner.


By the way, Robert Wagner is still around.  Hard to believe, but he’s 86 years old right now and still ruggedly handsome.


The People magazine put a human touch on a story that most people have forgotten about.  Natalie’s kids will never forget about that day.  If you see a copy of the magazine check it out.  It is some good reading.


Bob was in trouble. He forgot his wedding anniversary. His wife was really angry. She told him “Tomorrow morning, I expect to find a gift in the driveway that goes from 0 to 200 in 6 seconds AND IT BETTER BE THERE!” The next morning he got up early and left for work. When his wife woke up, she looked out the window and sure enough there was a box gift-wrapped in the middle of the driveway. Confused, the wife put on her robe and ran out to the driveway, brought the box back in the house. She opened it and found a brand new bathroom scale. Bob has been missing since Friday.





Here we are.  Closing in on one of the most precious days of the year!!


I truly believe that Mom’s are one of the most precious commodities in this world.  My beautiful Mama included.  Here she is with my gorgeous wife and yours truly.


This next one fits many Moms that I know.

I must have had a great workout the other night, because this happened to ME!!


Yep, it’s that time of year.


Have you ever thought about this next one?  It makes sense!


OK. Here it is.  Your “JAY JOKE” for today.


As much as I despise clowns, I found this one funny.


I laughed until I died…..No wait…I take that back!


2.  My son Mitchell and I were talking the other night and we were trying to guess how many concerts we have been to.  Obviously, I have been to many more than him, but my boys have seen some INCREDIBLE concerts because of Mom and Dad.  So, I sat down the other night and started writing down the names of the singers I have seen live.  I still have a ton that I am missing, but just off the top of my head I have already written down 217 names.  TWO HUNDRED AND SEVEN CONCERTS!!!  No wonder I’m old and tired.  I will keep you updated on the final tally.  I’m actually scared to see it, but you should see the list of legendary acts I have seen.  IMPRESSIVE!!

3.  Speaking of legendary concerts, I may as well quit going to any concerts because I just saw the epitome of the greatest concert I could ever see.  (obviously I won’t stop going to concerts.  Don’t be silly.  HAHA)

This past week, my wife, my boys and Mitchell’s sweety went to Sioux Falls to see….PAUL MCCARTNEY. 


This was a “bucket list” concert for me.  I was extremely excited because we got to see the architect of the most legendary band of all time, “The Beatles.”  We got to see the Beatles song done by one of the best songwriters of all time.  We got to hear “Wings” songs from his 70’s band.  We got to hear new stuff as well.  This was, by far, the greatest concert I have ever witnessed, and I would go time and time again if he comes back up in this region.

And, Paul McCartney had an INCREDIBLE band.


I still have goosebumps.  I have downloaded a bunch of Beatles songs on my I-POD, and I have been listening to them non stop.  The Beatles are legendary. Their music will live on forever.  And, we got to see the person that helped created this legendary band.  COOL!!!

4.  One more thing on music.  I don’t remember if we talked about this before or not, but I wanted to comment on the passing of Prince. 


I am not the biggest Prince fan.  I have some of his music, and I loved his 80’s stuff when I was growing up.  He’s not one I would have gone to see in concert, but with that said, I completely appreciate the “genius” of this man.  He not only wrote some songs that will live for a long time, he produced some award winning acts, and helped the careers of many many different singers.  Prince has influenced possibly more acts than most singers that are still around.  He will go down as one of the best guitar players in rock music history.

There is talk, I hear, of turning his Paisley Park studios into a shrine like Elvis’ Graceland.  OK, I don’t know how I feel about that.  However, it doesn’t affect me, so knock yourselves out.  I personally wouldn’t put Prince in the “Elvis category”, but many of his fans would. 

Whether or not his home will be turned into a shrine is not important.  At this juncture we must just appreciate the man, the music, and the legacy that he has left behind.  A legacy that will sell millions upon millions of albums and CD’S.  A legacy that will make him a bigger star in death than he was when he was alive.  It has happened many times before, and it will happen again.

5.  GOOD NEWS.  I am working on possibly bringing my country classics show back to radio in the future.  My show was on the air for around 20 years in different markets that I worked in.  I used to call it “Country Memories,” but I decided a change was necessary, so now it’s called “Country Legends Jukebox.”




I  am working on getting a website started, but for now I have put a page on Facebook.  It’s under “Country Legends Jukebox.”  I will let you know when the website is ready, and when the t-shirts are available for sale!!

6.  My heart just breaks for the people in Alberta, Canada that are having their lives ruined by the fires.  The fires are heart wrenching and are of a magnitude that I haven’t seen in awhile.  As of this printing, we are lucky that no one has died. As of yet.  Check out these pictures.  People had to DRIVE THRU THIS STUFF to get out of town.



We see the photos and we are sad and blown away. What we don’t think about is this.  Some people have lost EVERYTHING that they owned.  Imagine losing all of your pictures that are irreplaceable.  Imagine losing all of your clothes, your vehicles, your furniture, your legal documents.  ALL GONE.  Our hearts and prayers go out to the people who are suffering. 

7.  Well, it appears that our Presidential election may be finalized. 


Trump is the last one standing out of 17 in the Republican party.  Hillary is looking like the winner over Bernie Sanders. So here is the question.

What in the world are people to do who don’t want EITHER of these two in the White House?  I have never seen an election before when so many people are talking about not voting because they cannot stand either candidate.  I mean A LOT of people are talking like this.  I will say this.  YOU MUST VOTE.  Terrorists and others despise America because of our freedoms, and that includes the right to vote.  We may not agree that we want either one of these two in the White House, but the fact remains, one of them WILL BE.  We cannot “not vote” and then sit back and complain over the next four years. 



Two elderly women were out driving in a large car, both could barely see over the dashboard.  As they were cruising along, they came to an intersection.  The stoplight was red, but they went sailing thru it.  The woman in the passenger seat thought to herself, “I must be losing it.  I could have sworn we just went thru a red light.” 

After a few more minutes they came to another intersection and the light was red again, and once again, they went right thru it without stopping.  This time the woman in the passenger seat was almost sure that the light had been red, but was really concerned that she was losing her mind.  She was getting nervous, and decided to pay very close attention to the road and the next intersection to see what was truly going on.

At the next intersection, sure enough, the light was absolutely red and they went right thru it, so she turned to the other woman and said, “Mildred!!  Did you know that we just ran thru three red lights in a row?  You could have killed us!!”

Mildred turned to her with a confused look and said, “Oh, am I driving?”
