It's A Good Day To Remember The Troops !

Today is Friday and that means happy hour at Krystels Restaurant and Nightclub. Kenny will be there to add a little music to the fray and if you're real nice to me, I won't sing (you know I'm lying).

The Pictures: I was emailed these pictures and aside from thinking about the men and women serving in the armed forces, I remember my days in the United States Army (1966-1971). I definitely remember having to dig foxholes and the little shovel you had to carry with you. Then, we would bivouac (camp) and inevitably, it would rain. The Army issued ponchos that always leaked and you would lie there at night in the miserable little excuse for a tent (which also leaked), in the nasty-ass poncho and wonder, Canada would be a nice place to live. Click to "View Larger" on the pictures and take a good look at the conditions where are troops are ! It "ain't" no piece of cake !  

This Date In History: 1796; Napolean Bonaparte marries Josephine de Beauharnais. 1867; The United States purchase the Alaskan Territory from Russia for the sum of $7,200.000

Birthdays: Yuri Gagarin, Soviet caomonaut (1934), Raul Julia, actor (1940).

Questions: Can you cry underwater?, Once you're in Heaven (or the alternative, still married), do you get stuck wearing the same clothes you were buried in?, What disease did "cured ham" actually have?, Why does round pizza come in a square box?, Why is "bra" singular and "panties" plural?, If a pair of gloves is two, is a pair of pants, two, too ?, TuTu?, What?, Can a hearse carrying a body drive in the car pool lane?

Cryptic and Blatant Hellos :  Time for a perfect martini, Hi CSR, Rosa O, que pasa?, Cristina..., Hector and Lourdes, Susie Q, Carmencita, Doctor Mark, Guillermo and Brenda, Jeannie, Jeanette and Kevin, Benjamin y Blanca, Carlos Oliva and The Judges Nephews, Emilio and Melina, The One and Only, Krystel, My friend, Danny, and the rest of my loved ones...U KNOW WHO U ARE !  

If Wile E. Coyote had enough money to but all that ACME crap, why didn't he just buy food?, If electricity comes from neutrons, does morality come from morons?, Why do they call them asteroids when they're outside our atmosphere, but hemorroids when they're in your ass? Do the "Alphabet Song" and "Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star", have the same tune? Why did you just try singing the two songs above?   

That's it for today my little troopers. More tomorrow.

Stay Tuned !
