It's Wednesday and I have mixed emotions. As per my usual, I'm going to AREA 51 at Krystel's Restaurant to solve world and national problems. I'll see all my pals and this always makes me happy. The sad part is that Krystel's Restaurant and Nightclub has been sold. Friday will be the last day and then the new owners are supposed to close for renovations for the month of July and then re-open in August.
I've known about the sale for some time, but I kinda hoped against hope that something would come up. But life goes on and I'll be there in August to support and train the new owners. That in itself will probably take a month. There's going to be a big party on Friday and I'll be right in the middle of it. I'll bring you more up to speed tomorrow.
Please don't fret my little tipplers, as AREA 51 is a state of mind, not a particular location. This restaurant and lounge has had many owners since the '70's and I've known 'em all. I'm not 100% sure, but I think the new owners will specialize in seafood and that's find by me, because when I see food, I eat it (I don't believe you said that. Well, I did, so shut up!).
I'm entertaining two nominees for the CAT Award this week, the first being Larry King for his audacity to interview a spoiled convict and Bobby Cutts Jr, for just being the piece of shit that he is. Whatcha think?
The Pictures: Lions and tigers and bears, oh my! I didn't have time to peruse the picture sites today, so a lot of these are re-runs (my bad). But since I've got well over 1,000 pictures stored, maybe you didn't see them in the past or you have old timers disease and you meet new friends every day.
It dawned on me today that anyone who would like to see more of my nephew, Jonathon Sullivan, you can go to his memorial website. It's called http://Sullyssite.com and here's the link or find it on the left side of my journal under "favorites".

The Hits Just Keep On Coming:
Do You Know What Happened In 1850 (157 Years Ago)?
California became a state. The State had no electricity. The State had no money. Almost everone there spoke Spanish. There were gunfights in the streets every day.
So, basically, it was just like California is today, except the women had real breasts and the men didn't hold hands.
That's it for today, my little teddy bears. More (yes, Nancy), even More tomorrow <grin>.
