Tuesday has moved slowly and I'm beginning to think it's stalling for time. It kind of reminds me of the Eisenhower doll. You wind it up and it does nothing for eight years. Maybe it's just me, but I think Tuesday's getting jealous of Wednesday and is trying to screw everything up. I'm on to you, Tuesday ! I can wait you out !
Tell me your drink: Although I'm aware of most of your individual preferences as to cocktails, I'd be interested to know everyone's favorite drink. You can either enter it as a comment or for the painfully shy, you can email me at JimSulliv3@aol.com .
Odds and ends: I was amused to see the barrage of emails to CNN protesting the story about Michael Vick and associates, and their alleged dogfighting activities. It seems there are people who feel that CNN has tried and convicted Mr. Vick before his court date, because of his race. Perhaps they should call "Podium Al" Sharpton to the rescue.... Supreme Court Justice John Roberts had a seizure the other day at his home. As it turns out, his health problems were "known about at the time prior to his confirmation, but felt that it wasn't a problem". Uh, a person who, in his interpretation of law, affects many people of this nation and it "wasn't a problem?".... Star Jones, the former co-host of "The View", has finally admitted to having a gastric bypass to lose weight. I am 100% in favor of this type of surgery, and I've seen it work. Jones, whose "holier than thou" attitude always rubbed me the wrong way, ferociously denied the surgery and boldly stated that she lost the weight through diet and exercise. This aggravates me no end because it implies that gastric bypass surgery is not an option and I know better !
The Iraqui legislature is taking a month off for vacation. While our troops are fighting and being injured or killed, the Iraqui legislature is taking a month off for vacation ! Well, we wanted their government to be more like ours, so...... Be careful what you wish for !
The Pictures: I received some interesting sculpture photos today which I may or may not include all today. They're super interesting, but I need more time to digest what the artist's intent was before I run the full layout. Today, I have a picture for my pal, Jackie. She's one hell of a gardener and my sunflower picture for her today only pales when compared to hers. You can check Jackie out by going to her site which is located under "other journals" on this site and is called "Life in Bama" or for the real lazy, just click this link. http://journals.aol.com/bamawmn46/lifeinbama/ . I've also included a picture for Pamela of the sunset in California.
Here's one of the sculptures. I'll give you details tomorrow.

The Hits Just Keep On Coming: After three weeks in the Garden of Eden, God came to visit Eve and said, "So,how's it going?" Eve said, "It's beautiful, God. Everything is so serene and wonderful. I do have one problem. It's these three breasts you gave me."
God said, "Yeah, I know. I thought you'd like them." Eve said, "That's just it, I don't like them. The middle one pushes the other two outward and when I walk, they get in the way, they snag things, they're a real pain."
God said, "Well, I'm kinda new at this. I gave the other animals six breasts and I thought you'd only need half that amount. But, I see your point and I take care of that." With that, God removed the middle breast and threw it into the bushes.
Three weeks later, God returned to speak with Eve. "So, hows my favorite creation?" Eve said, "Just fine except for one minor oversight on your part. All the other animals are paired up except me. Ya know it get's kinda lonely."
God said, "You know, you right! How could I have overlooked that. I will take a part from your body and create Man. Where's that useless boob I threw away?"
That's it for today, my little apple pickers. More tomorrow.
Stay Tuned !
