The evening was heavy with fog, wafting up from the rapidly drying streets. The smell of brisk, cool air that one enjoys after a heavy rain permeated one's nostrils. Our beloved hero, the renown vocalist, Jimmy, had finished helping to close Krystel's and was safely on the way to his car, when out of the shadows, one of the last patrons leaving the club, collided with our hero.. Fortunately, no one was injured and the patron apolgized profusely for stepping on Jimmy's hand......
Ok, I made that part up, but it was a long and extremely comical evening, beginning when I entered the club. Who to my wondering eyes should appear...? An old friend, his sister, and no rain, dear. Yes, it was Butch and Sister Sue, two old pals of mine who decided to go out for happy hour and sat in AREA 51 expecting to see me. We had a long and funny conversation, joined by Hector, SR the golfer, and Barbie. This set the tone for the evening.
We were later joined by Red Truck Man, Maritza, Emilio, Melina, Al and Lydia, and Lourdes (who was a riot). Somehow, besides the normal cocktails, a strange aroma began wafting fom person to person, followed immediately by uncontrollable laughter and the sudden desire for chicken wings. Needless to say, yours truly left Krystels somewhere around 3 am and for those who received undecipherable emails, I will decode them as soon as I remember what I meant. Nuff said !
The Pictures: Some puppies (not Britney's), some cats (not Britneys) and.....the "usual suspects".
This Date In History: 1777; The Continental Congress votes to adopt a flag with 13 stars and 13 stripes as the national emblem of the new United States of America. 1846; In the Bear Flag Revolt during the Mexican War, American settlers capture Sonoma from Mexican forces and declare an independant Republic of California. Mexico cedes the territory to the United States in 1848, but vows to retake California in the future, one illegal alien at a time. 1940; The German Army captures Paris, leading to the surrender of France three days later. The United States and it's Allies liberate Paris at the end of the war and France, in gratitude, begins talking trash about the United States and continues this quaint custom to this date. Zieg Heil...oops Merci, America, Merci !

The Hits Just Keep On Coming:
Two cows were grazing on the side of a hill and one turned to the other and said, "Mooo." The other cow replied, "Damn, I was just going to say that."
A polar bear cub, sitting on an iceberg, turned to it's mother and asked, "Mom, Am I really a polar bear?" The mother said, "Yes dear, of course." A few minutes later the cub said, "Mom, Are you sure I'm a polar bear?" Annoyed, the mother bear said, "Your father is a polar bear, I'm a polar bear and you're a polar bear. Why do you ask?" The little cub replied, "Because I'm freezing my ass off."
A cowboy rode his horse into town, dismounted, and tied the steed to the hitching post. He then walked to the rear of the horse, lifted it's tail and kissed the horse where the sun don't shine.
The sheriff, nearby, observed the act and asked, "Did you just do what I think you did?" The gruffy cowboy said, "Yes, got me some badly chapped lips." The sheriff asked, "Does that cure it?" The cowboy replied, "Nah, but it keeps me from licking them."
That's it for today my little hangovers. More tomorrow, including a story and video about Mozart, the iguana.
