The Eagle Has Landed !

Mission accomplished ! Where have I seen that sign before? Could it have been when our fearless leader, the world leader who cannot pronounce the word nuclear, former military reservist, and current hawk landing on an aircraft carrier after the invasion of Iraq? Accomplished? Right !

Well, in my case, it was seeing my AREA 51 pals at Lakes Cafe and Pub last evening. With the exception of Al and Lydia, and my buddy Emilio, most of the regulars were there last night including Hector and Lourdes, Dr. Marc and Rosie, and Dr. Saca Muela (He's a dentist and 'saca muela' means tooth puller in spanish. That's the name Dr. Marc gave him). I was very pleased to see the very sexy Barbie last night, who sat with me for the evening. All in all, it was a good evening and everyone got home safely. Like I said, mission accomplished.

I decided to re-run the pictures of the pair of eagles and their chicks, along with a few ospreys. The main reason for today's pictures is that I remembered a (true) story about eagles. First and foremost, they bond for life. I'm not real sure of being with the same chick (pun intended) forever, but I guess it's romantic. Their mating habits, however, are a bit scary.

It seems they fly to a very high altitude, couple in mid-air and while plummeting towards the ground at speeds up to 180 miles per hour, engage in and complete the mating act. Now, I will admit to a few wild moments in my time that, in retrospect, were a little dangerous. I can assure you, however, that if I were one of those eagles watching they ground come up at me at frightening speed, I would have to leave the lady eagle hanging. On the other hand, if I were the lady eagle, I think I'd fake one !

The Pictures: Probably one of the most commented picture series that I've run in the past is the series of the pair of eagles and their newly hatched chicks. I've included some beautifule osprey picturesalong with my pal Martha doing her best God Bless America speech. Ya gotta love it !

This Date In History: 1305; Scottish nationalist William Wallace is executed in London as a traitor against King Edward I of England. 1821; Mexico receives it's independence from Spain in the Treaty of Cordoba.

Birthdays: Louis XVI, French king (1754), Gene Kelley, dancer, actor and director (1912), Sonny Jergenson, professional quarterback (1934).

The Hits Just Keep On Coming:  MEN ! Thanks to my sexy perfect martini. (The following jokes, while not necessarily the opinion of this journalist, are very funny).

Why do men become smarter during sex? Because they're plugged in to a genius. Why don't men blink during sex? They don't have enough time. Why are men's brains larger than dogs? So that they don't hump women's legs at parties. Why did God make man before woman? Because you need a rough draft before you make the final copy. How many men does it take to put down a toilet seat? Don't know, it never happened. Why did God put men on earth? Because a vibrator can't mow the lawn.

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

Stay Tuned !

Oh God, I LOVE those jokes.   You are so darn funny............suggesting the lady eagle "fake it!"  George W. was in our town yesterday and everybody bitched about the traffic messes all around town.  I am enjoying my martini and now I think MY martini and YOUR blog go hand in hand.   Take care.   Anne

I thought at first you were celebrating the anniversary of the first picture of the Earth made from the moon by the Lunar Orbiter in 1966. I was just a mere child....However, I am no longer a child and am now attempting to teach a vibrator to mow the lawn....

Have a great Friday.... I certainly will after 3:15 tomorrow!
