Six To One, A Half Dozen To The Other !

Zipiddy Doo Dah ! I have no idea why I typed that, but then again, after a night in AREA 51 at Lakes Cafe, my mind isn't quite the same. I was so absorbed in a project I'm working on, that I almost didn't go last night. Around 9:15 my cell phone rang and it was Hector, "Where the hell are you?" Fortunately, knowing my lame brain, I was already dressed, so........... !

When I got there, the first thing I noticed was the floor. Danny has finished the bar, the new bar stools are in, and last night, the floor was bare down to the concrete awaiting the flooring. It may be be ready by Friday, but there's a lot of work in covering the place. All of the inmates of AREA 51 weren't bothered by the bare concrete floor, though, as long as there's booze!

Fred Thompson announced his candidacy for president last night on the Jay Leno Show. I don't know how well he'll do, but the republican slate is basically pretty crummy. Giuliani's got too much baggage, McCain's out of money and floundering and the rest are run of the mill and with baggage, also. Perhaps his entry will key up the republican race.

Speaking about bathroom humor, as you know, I try to keep you up to date on important world matters, so I'm here to announce that that the award for America's Best Restroom goes to Jungle Jim's International Market, where the entrance doors to the restroom are actual Port-O-Lets. Unsuspecting people patiently wait their turn in line until they see three or four people come out at the same time. Inside there's a large modern restroom. I wonder who would even consider going into a porta-potty at a restroom except under emergency conditions? I'll pass, thanks (pun intended).

The Pictures: More of the award winning restrooms (aren'tyou glad you read my journal?). There's Fandangle's restaurant from Flushing, Michigan (I swear I didn't make this sh... er, crap up). The one with the old man sitting on the throne is from Cafe do Gol, a soccer themed restaurant in Rio De Janeiro. Of course, if you rule from the throne, you're obviously royalty, and a golden throne (from a Hong Kong restautant) befits you. You are not allowed to use the facilty however if you are carrying a file. Even Charmin styled a restroom with its' char...., nah, too easy. I dumped in a few other photos so that you don't feel too cramped and that your movement through the pictures is relaxing.

This Date In History: 1901; Anarchist Leon Czolgose (easy for you to type) shoots President William McKinley at the Pan-American exposition in Buffalo, New York. McKinley dies eight days later. 1941; The Nazi government requires that all Jews in German occupied territories wear the yellow star of David for identification.

Birthdays: Moses Medelssohn, philosopher (1729), Marquis de Lafayette, soldier and statesman (1757), Joseph Kennedy, financier and whisky smuggler (1888).

The Hits Just Keep On Coming:  A Letter to Dear Abby (Thanks to the lovely, Anne !)

Dear Abby:

I've never written to you before, but I really need your advice. I have suspected for some time now that my wife is cheating on me. The usual signs; callers hang up when I answer the phone, she goes out with "the girls" a lot, yada yada yada.

The other night, she went out again. I waited up for her to get home and I hid in the garage behind my golf clubs, so that I could get a good view of the street. When she came home, she was buttoning her blouse as she got out of the car. Then, she pulled her panties out of her purse and slipped them on.

It was at that moment, crouching behind my golf clubs, that I noticed a hairline crack where the grip meets the graphite shaft on my three wood. Is this something that I should fix myself or take it back to the pro shop where I bought it?


That's it for today my little greens keepers. Happy Hour and more tomorrow.

Stay Tuned !

Hi Jimmy,
Haven't been by for awhile. Nice to be back over here. Sounds like your new watering hole is coming together nicely. Like you said, as long as there is booze you're happy LOL!
LOL on Dear Abby! FUNNY!
Hugs..Pam xoxox

Oh....the most interesting and unique bathroom I'VE ever seen was in Bora Bora, coincidentally.  There's a story that goes with it (that Stu still teases me about), but I'll save that for another time.   Anyway, maybe if you look up "bloody Mary's" in Bora Bora...they'll talk about it!!
Take care,
nance ( attempt at french)

I really have a thing about public restrooms. I rarely use them if I can help it. Sounds like AREA 51 is coming right along. At this point anybody will do for presidency as long as they truly have the people in mind. Not going to happen is it?
Loved the Dragonfly picture, stunningly beautiful! (Hugs) Indigo
