What? Me Worry? It's Humpday !

Hump day, from the latin, canus humpus leggus, is my salvation during the boredom of the five days one must endure to get to the next weekend.

I didn't get to see my friend Tom yesterday. Something came up and he wasn't able to make the meeting. We'll reschedule for another day and when we meet, I'll snap a picture of the "Griz".

Last night on TV, I saw another one of those commercials that you just want to shoot whoever thought of it. You know, like that asshole in the black and yellow suit that has the question marks on it and who runs around screaming like a schoolgirl about free money. If there's so much money available, why doesn't he keep it a secret and get it all? Then there's the Head-On commercial, whose producer hopefully will have a head-on crash with the director for making such crap.

Last night's commercial was really a winner! It's called Gold Kit. They send you an envelope and you search around for all your old gold, put it in the "handy" envelope and mail it to them. Then, they will assess it's value and send you a check. What's wrong with this picture? If you send them your gold, without a receipt and without knowing it's value, you deserve the "check" that they send you ! 

The Pictures: As one can plainly see, there are none, Why, you might ask? AOL has redesigned the journals. As you well know, I am always aware of any changes and my keen intellect is the key reason that I am always on top of the situation. Therefore, I had no idea that changes were coming, hence, no pictures. I'm not sure if it's AOL's fault or mine, but I will put the blame squarely where it lies...AOL. I'll get this thing figured out today and will get the pictures later if possible.

                                   

This Date In History: 1770; At Versailles, Marie-Antoinette marries future King Louis XVI of France. 1886; The United States Congress votes to replace the half-dime with a five-cent coin called the nickel. 1929; The first Academy Awards are presented in Hollywood, California; the film "Wings" wins Best Picture.

The Hits Just Keep On Coming:

The young boy asked his mother, "How many kinds of 'willies' are there?" His mother said, "A man goes through three stages. When he is in his twenties, his 'willie' is like an oak tree, mighty and hard. In his twenties and thirties, it's like a birch, flexible but reliable. In his fifties, it's like a Christmas tree."

"A Christmas tree?", asked the boy. "Yes", the mother said, "Dead from the root up and the balls are only for decoration."

That's it for today my pictureless little ducklings. More tomorrow.

Stay Tuned !
