It's Going To Be A Good Saturday !

Why is it going to be a good Saturday? I'll tell you why my little tinker toys. First and foremost, it's the day after Friday and I am still intact (compared to what? Shut up !). Krystel's was fun ! I sang, danced and generally had a good time. Nice to see Pepe again and always nice to dance with Carmen. I am sad to say I only resolved about thirty-five percent of the world's problems during happy hour, 'cause Dr. Saca Muela got there early in the afternoon and was on his fourth martini when I got there. Needless to say, his words flowed aimlessly, bordering on the inane. Fortunately, he later drifted into oblivion, which is close to where he lives.

Today is the running of the Preakness, the second leg of the Triple Crown. My heart's with Street Sense, who's become the odds on favorite and a heartwarming colt that reminds me of the great Barbaro. They're also running the Nascar All Star race tonight, which is a non-points race that pays a cool One Million dollars to win. Should be good !

The journals are going to bring back the old style of picture entries and will keep the new styles also, which pleases me no end. This will enable me to return to my deeply trodden journalistic path, which is easy for me to remember. It will also allow me to add a little more flair with the newer ideas, but at my pace (which is painfully ancient Don't make me smack you Ok,ok !). 

The Pictures: The theme today is "No Helmet Necessary". You'll see what I mean, plus the"usual suspects". I've got some new ones, but they'll keep 'til Monday when things are settled. Note: If you see a picture you like, just click it and the movement will stop. Also: You can click any of the tags at the bottom of each page, or the "other journals" and "favorites" on the left side of the journal and it will take you "somewhere" !  

This Date In History: 1536; Ann Boleyn, second wife of King Henry VIII, is beheaded in the Tower of London after she was convicted of adultery. 1643; Representatives from four New England colonies meet in Boston to form a military alliance. 1935; T.E. Lawrence, British soldier known as Lawrence of Arabia, dies in England from a motorcycle accident.

Birthdays: Johns Hopkins, financier and philanthropist (1795) ,Pete Townshend, musician (1945).

The Hits Just Keep On Coming:

The rich host invited everyone to a pool party, including Leroy. Everyone was enjoying the food and drink when the host exclaimed, "There's a large man-eating alligator in the pool ! I'll give anyone $100,000 to jump in with him."

The words were barely out of his mouth when there was a splash and there was Leroy, thrashing about the pool with the alligator. When a bloody Leroy got out of the pool, the host said, "Well Leroy, I guess I owe you $100,000. Leroy said, "Nah Sir, I don't want your money, but I sure do want the name of the son-of-a-bitch who pushed me into the pool ! 

That's it for today my little dog paddlers. More tomorrow.

Stay Tuned !

Kudo's to you on your survival of Krystel's last night , no mishaps (winks). Loved the pictures as always. The one with the star and moon shaped islands was out there. If we could all be Leroy's, although I would of taken the $100,000 simply for survival benefits. (Hugs) Indigo
