Climb Every Mountain?

Everyone believes that they can climb that mythical mountain or swim that raging river. Then, there are things that just seem to say "mission impossible". Such is the case of the young lady that I have pictured today. She is 7 feet , four inches tall and weighs 320 pounds, which automatically eliminates Tom Cruise. From what I can ascertain, she doesn't have much body fat, so I assume she's mostly muscle.

I've been told many times, "You can't do this or you can't do that" and I usually scoff and say, "Just because you can't doesn't mean that I can't." Many a time I have gone to the mountain and conquered it.

In this particular case, I would not go anywhere near the "mountain", cause my Daddy didn't raise no fool ! Talk about biting off more than you can chew ! I'm just imagining if I displease her. It would be quite embarrasing to have a lady tear off your arm at the shoulder and beat you with it.

The Pictures; Well, you've seen the first one. We also have Bora Bora, a Bali Shrine, a cheetah, Johnny Carson and Our Gang (The Little Rascals). I hope you enjoy them.

This Date In History: 1942; U.S. Marines land at Guadalcanal in the Solomon Islands, making the first assault of U.S. troops on Japanese islands in the Pacific Ocean. U.S. forces finally capture the island in February, 1943. 1961; Soviet Cosmonaut, Gherman Titov, completes 17 orbits of the earth in 25.5 hours in Vostok 2, becoming the first person to spend more than a day in space. 1964; After two reported North Vietnamese attacks on U.S. warships, the U.S. Congress approves the Gulf of Tonkin Resolution, giving President Lyndon B. Johnson the power to launch the Vietnam War.

Birthdays: Mata Hari, Dutch prostitute and dancer who was executed as a German spy in World War I in 1917 (1876), Alan Page, professional football player (1945).

The Hits Just Keep On Coming: My friend, Nancy, sent me this neat little web site called "I Do Dog Tricks". I tried it and it's fun, except there's a slight delay on dial-up. For my hip, modern readers with high speed, it's a piece of cake. Try it, you'll like it.


Two Moons: On August 27, the planet Mars will be within 35 million miles from the Earth. I am told that at 12:30 a.m., it will appear as large as a full moon, thus giving the appearance of having two moons. It sounds cool, so don't miss it 'cause the next time this happens will be in 2278 and we'll be really old !

Coffee enemas seem to be the current rage. The health advantages of this practice has been praised and certified by many doctors. Of course, you can never go back to Starbucks again, but..........

That's it for today, my little tinker toys. More Tomorrow.

Stay Tuned !

You could have skipped the info about the coffee enemas! I like coffee and I like Starbucks..... <sniff>....

Why would a woman who is 7' 4" need platform heels?? Isn't she tall enough without them?
