Wednesday's always make me happy because we have Karaoke Night at Krystel's Restaurant and Nightclub. It's not just the performers (they're good !), but I get to see my friends (they're good too !). Why don't you join me today? Happy hour is 4-7 p.m. with drinks two for one and Frantz will be there around 7:00 p.m. to emcee the show. Emilio and I do duets (while dodging projectiles) and that's worth the trip by itself.
The Pictures: Two "stars" of karaoke night.
This Date In History: 1794; Eli Whitney patents the cotton gin.

Thanks to my sister, Jeannie:
A woman came home to see her husband in the kitchen, swinging a fly swatter in the air. "What are you doing?", she asked. "Killing flies, so far I've killed three males and two females", he replied. "How can you tell them apart?', she queried. "Easy!", he said, " Three were on a beer can and two were on the phone".
The country policeman responded to a call for assistance from a fellow officer. Upon arrival, he viewed two men running from the scene of an apparent robery. Subsequently, he saw the door open to a nearby outhouse and saw his partner sitting down. After questioning why the office was on the "throne" and listening to his response, he sternly admonished, "No, Murray, it's shoot first and ask questions later".
That's it for today, my little vocalists. More tomorrow.
Stay Tuned !
