Happy Humpty Dumpty Day !

Hump Day is here, with special thanks to Monday for greasing the path, we're on the downslope to Friday. Hump Day, defined in Webster's dictionary (Larry Webster. Cute ! Shut up !) as the day of the week when one leaves one's daily routine and ambles over to Lakes Cafe and Pub to meet in AREA 51 to discuss the merits of society and how one can participate in changing the world to be a better place (er...such as, such as why can't Americans locate the U.S. on a map? Were you a participant in the Mr. North Carolina teen journalist competition? Hey, Leave me alone, it sounded good to me). All things considered, it's as good a reason as any to go to Lakes Cafe tonight and see my friends !

Ok, here's the new feature that AOL added yesterday. We will be able to add a poll, when necessary (or just for fun), on the occasional situations that arise to see what you think. More importantly, it will be a vehicle that Shithead (my cat and co-judge for the Cat's Ass Trophy), and I to help determine the winner of the CAT award for that particular week. For readers who are shy, can't or won't comment, here's a perfect vehicle to put in your two cents, anonamously. Please remember to use the slide bar on the right side of the poll feature to slide down and "click" vote after you have voted. Today's poll is at the bottom of the page. Remember, as we say in the South, vote early and vote often!

The Pictures: More from Mr. Crayola, Don Marco including, Geronimo, Navajo Council, Bear Bull, Chief Red Wing, and Sioux Warrior. Included in Mr. Crayola's collection are drawings of Tom Selleck and Clint Eastwood. I included a picture of Mother Teresa on the ten year anniversary of her death.

This Date In History: 1774; Delegates from all thirteen colonies, except Georgia, meet as the first Continental Congress convenes in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. 1877; Oglala leader, Crazy Horse is killed by a U.S. soldier, allegedly after resisting confinement. 1972; At the summer Olympic Games in Munich, West Germany, Palestinian terrorists murder eleven members of the Israeli delegation. 1997; Roman Catholic missionary, Mother Teresa dies at the age of 87.

Birthdays: Louis XIV, king of France and maker of some mighty fine furniture (1638), Jesse James, outlaw (1847), Werner Herzog, film director (1942).

The Hits Just Keep On Coming: The Perfect Marriage  Thoughts and quips from one of the great, clean comedians of all time, Red Skelton, who entertained me immensely as a child. (Thanks to My Perfect Martini).


Two times a week, we go to a fine restaurtant, have dinner, a few cocktails and companionship. She goes on Wednesdays and I go on Fridays. We sleep in separate beds. Mine is in California and hers is in New York. I take my wife everywhere, but she keeps finding her way back. We always hold hands at the mall. If I let go, she goes shopping. I married Miss Right. The problem is that I didn't know her first name was Always ! I asked my wife where she wanted to go for our anniversary. She said, "Somewhere I haven't been in a while." I said, "How about the kitchen." I haven't spoken to my wife in three weeks. I don't like to interrupt her when she's talking. Remember the main cause of divorce is marriage.

That's it for today, my little nanny goats. See you tonight at lakes Cafe and more tomorrow.

Stay Tuned !

I LOVED Red Skelton as a kid. OMG that man had me howling with laughter in front of our old TV!
