Humpday !

Humpday ! For as long as I can remember, that's what we called it. As I was putting my mind into gear for today's entry, I began to think (?) about the connotation of the word, "hump". A camel's got a hump (sometimes two), hills have humps, the Hunchback of Notre Dame had a hump (your ex-girlfriend had a hump! You're getting on my nerves). Then I thought, a dog will hump your leg  (so will your ex-girfriend). I will use the word "hump" in humpday to reflect hitting the top of a hill and beginning the descent of same, as opposed to the young german shepherd's act when you sit down at your friends house to have a beer (surely you rant! Shut up....and don't call me Shirley!).

I'm going to try to put the video of Amanda Baggs, the autistic young lady, in my journal tomorrow. If I can't get it in tomorrow, due to unforseen reasons that perchance may occur this evening at Krystel's, it will be in Sunday's entry. 

The Pictures: 1-2) A dog house and a cat house (use your own discretion). 3) Johnny Mathis, today's featured artist 4...) The "usual suspects".

This Date In History: 1519; Leonardo Da Vinci, Italian scientist, sculptor, and painter of the masterpiece, Mona Lisa, dies in France. 1945; Berlin surrenders to Russian Allied Forces in World War II; less than a week later the war would end.

Birthdays: Catherine the Great, empress of Russia (1729), Lorenz Hart, of Rogers and Hart fame, lyricist (1895).

The Hits Just Keep On Coming:

Do Lipton Tea employees take coffee breaks? People seem to read the Bible more as they grow older. I think their cramming for the final exams! Why do croutons come in air-tight bags? Aren't they just stale bread to begin with? Why isn't the number 11 pronounced onety-one? No one ever says,"It's only a game" when their team is winning. Do you ever wonder what the speed of lightning would be if it didn't zigzag? Whatever happened to preparation A through G ? 

That's it for today, my little hum....er, german shepherd puppies. More tomorrow.

Stay Tuned !

OMG!!!!!  I love the pictures!! I've always heard it called hump day too! I mentioned this to the kids in class one day and they just fell apart because they didn't know that humpday meant Wednesday.... I'm sure you can guess what some of them thought.... <wink>  I like hump day... i'm on the downside of it!!!  

Happy Humpin!!

You just crack me up with your "hump day" thoughts.  Your pics are great.  Your nephew was very handsome. Sorry he's gone. Hope you have fun with your friends tonight.
