It's Friday the 13th And I'm going out - Brrrr !

Let's start the weekend off on a good note ! Although it's Friday the 13th, on Thursday the 12th, a young Pizza Hut waitress, who had enrolled in college, only to withdraw due to lack of financial aid, received a tip from a patron to the tune of $10,000.00 ! Jessica Osborne had faithfully served a customer named Becky and the two struck up a friendship. Unbeknownst to Jessica, Becky had suffered a tragedy with the death of her husband and oldest daughter and had received a large settlement. The young waitress is pursuing a degree in photography.

We currently have two nominees for this week's CAT Award, the nominees being (A) Al Sharpton , affectionately referred to as "The Rev Al" and (A) Rosie O'Donnell, affectionately known as "Rosie O'Diesel". Your opinion counts and comments and emails are encouraged. The esteemed panel of judges, namely myself and Shithead (my seven toed cat) will make a decision on Saturday.

An L.A. superior judge froze the $650 thousand in (A) Debra Opri's client trust fund account yesterday. After freezing the account, the judge "tentatively" ruled that the money belonged to Opri's ex-client, Larry Birkhead. But there's plenty of "red" tape before Larry sees the "green". I hope the ruling doesn't get "squashed".

The Pictures: It's a freaky Friday and therefore, freaky pictures. Just a visual of where my head's at today. I've also put in some family and friends and, the "usual suspects".

This Date In History: 1865; Edward Whymper, an English artist and pioneering mountaineer, becomes the first person to climb the Matterhorn, in the Alps. 1977; At 9:34 p.m., about nine million people lose their power in a blackout of the New York City metropolitan area. Over 3,000 people are arrested, mostly for looting (please tell me that's not true, "Rev Al"), during the 25-hour electrical outage.

Birthdays: Dave Garroway, television anchorman (1913), Jack Kemp, professional football quarterback and politician (1935), Harrison Ford, actor (1977) and (1942). Thank you, Andy, for reading and getting it !  

The Hits Just Keep On Coming:

After a week of marriage, Mississipp newlyweds, Harold and Arlene, went to see their family doctor. Harold said, "You ain't gonna believe this, Doc, but my "thingy's" turnin' purple." The doctor replied, "That's pretty unusual, let me examine you."

The doctor examines Harold and, sure enough, his "thingy" is definetely purple. The doctor turns to Arlene and asks, "Are you using the diaphragm that I prescribed for you?" Arlene replies, "Yes sir, I shore am."

The doctor says, " And what kind of jelly are you using?" Arlene responds, "Grape."

That's it for today, my little anchovies. More tomorrow.

Stay Tuned !

 I think that is wonderful about the waitress.  I would love to have enough money to do something like that.

Yes, BEFORE The Devine Ms. M sang Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy of Co.B., the ANDREW sisters sang it.  I love songs that you can actually hear the words and sing along, don't you?   Anne

I always thought Harrison Ford was born in 1973 with American Graffiti.
