Odds And Ends - It's Monday !

Monday's arrived and I don't mind, because I need a slow day to catch up. So today I'm dumping a lot of stuff on my computer that's been there for ages. I don't know if I told you, but I'm a packrat. You know the type.., you get an email, or you receive some videos, or a clever little joke and you think, I'd better save this. That said, today's entry is going to be odds and ends that I have stored inside my brain and that I need to get down in print.

I have 1,500 pictures stored on my computer. When I make my daily entry, I "browse" the pictures and then decide which ones I put in for the day. Lately, it's taking too much time to browse all the pictures so I'm moving some to another storage space.

I had dinner with Saturday night with Dr. Marc, Rosie and my pal, Danny. We made meatloaf and it turned out pretty good, if I say so myself. It was good to see Chico, Marc's Siberian Husky. I haven't seen him in a while. You're safe in assuming today's meatloaf day for me.

I got a kick out of Oback Hussein Osama Obama's recent faux pas'. One of his statements is that he would make contact with Iranian leaders, Hugo Chavez and Fidel Castro in his first year as President, to discuss differences. Then, he was quoted as saying that if Pakistani leaders would not take care of the insurgents hiding in the Pakistani mountainous border region near Afghanistan, then he (as president) would go in and clean it up. Make up your mind, Osama, do you want to pull a Jane Fonda or attack U.S. Allies?

The Pictures: I just received these great shots of some rare (and some not so rare) animals. I hope you enjoy them. 

This Date In History: 1926; The Warner Brothers Studio gives the first public exhibition of the Vitaphone system for showing motion-pictures. 1945; The American bomber Enola Gay dropsan atomic bomb on Hiroshima, Japan, destroying a majority of the city and killing an estimated 60,000 to 70,000 inhabitants. 1962; The former British colony of Jamaica gains it's independance. 1998; Former White House intern, Monica Lewinsky, testifies for over six hours before a grand jury investigating her relationship with President Bill Clinton.

Birthdays: Alfred Lord Tennyson, poet (1809), Sir Alexander Flemming, discoverer of penicillin (1881), Lucille Ball, actress and comedian (1911).

The Hits Just Keep On Coming:

A blind man was walking with his seeing eye dog when he came to an intersection. The dog proceeded to take the man directly into oncoming traffic. A car came barreling down the street, saw the man and came to a screeching halt, horn blaring.

The man, somewhat shaken, proceeded to the other side of the intersection and stopped. He reached into his pocket and gave the dog a treat. A passerby saw what had happened and said to the man, "Sir, your dog almost had you killed and you're giving him a treat?" The man replied, "No, I'm just trying to locate his mouth so I can put my foot up his ass !"

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

Stay Tuned !

Everytime I see the pict. of the turtle I can't help but laugh. It's almost like it's saying Hey Ma see what I can do! Maybe try assigning certain pictures to a certain folder. Would make what your looking for a lot easier. Although I have to admit. I have something like 16 Folders labeled sort.......(Hugs) Indigo
