We've Reached The Summit Of Mount Humpday !

It's here at last and we've summited Mount Humpday ! So, tear down the tents and clean the cages, my little trapeze artists, the circus is moving to Lakes Cafe and Pub ! Yesterday was a solemn day for remembering the people injured and killed on September 11, 2001. Today is a day to let off the steam and enjoy your friends and family, so I'll be in AREA51 this fine afternoon and most of the evening, for that matter, resolving worldly problems, electing presidents and handling anything else that arises.

Nominations are open for the Cat's Ass Trophy (CAT) award this week, with the winner(s) being chosen via the new polling feature on Friday. The winner will be announced in Saturday's entry. In the case that Shithead (my cat) parties too much Friday night, then the winner will be announced when I..., he finally comes out of his coma. Shithead and I will have one vote each and the balance of the voting will be done by you. If there are no nominees from you, Shithead and I will bestow the CAT award to a deserving recipient, should there be one. As per my usual, the judges (Shithead and I) reserve the right to name a receipient, in addition to the eventual winner via the polling system, mainly because this is a dictatorship <grin>.

Quite a few of my readers are in the medical field, mostly nurses. I'm not quite sure if there's any particular reason for this, other than the fact that I am quite certifiable and maybe I'm just being analyzed and studied further before the intervention. Keep in mind that I was trained as a combat medic (U.S. Army 1966-1971) so I am theoretically a fellow care giver. In any case, I thought it was kinda neat to mention this little ditty.

Additionally, there are quite a few educators that also read my journal. This intimidates me a little in that I'm always checking and re-checking my grammer. Of course, the fact that I'm obsessive-compulsive doesn't hurt either.

The Pictures: I copied these pictures of places around the world from a beautiful slide show that I have. I'll have more of these pictures tomorrow and I hope you enjoy them a much as I do.

This Date In History: 1935; Multi-millionaire Howard Hughes sets a world speed record of 357 miles per hour in an airplane of his own design. 1940; French teens following their dog into an underground cavern near Lascaux, France, discover 17,000 year old paintings made by stone age artists. They also found a sign the said "Kilroy was here", but could not authenticate it's author. 1953; Future President John F. Kennedy marries Jacqueline Lee Bouvier in Newport, Rhode Island.

Birthdays: Maurice Chevalier, singer and actor (1888), Jesse Owens, track and field athlete (1913), George Jones, country music singer (1931).

The Hits Just Keep On Coming:   Attorneys - Part I

An accused thief took over a Los Angeles courtroom taking 15 attorneys as hostages. He threatened to release one per hour until his demands were met. How do you tell if an attorney is lying? His lips are moving. How does an attorney sleep? He lies on one side and then he lies on the other. If an attorney and an IRS agent were drowning, would you go to lunch or read the newspaper? What happens to an attorney if he jumps from an airplane without a parachute? Who cares? What should you do if you find an attorney up to his neck in cement? Get more cement. What's the difference between a dead dog on the road and a dead lawyer on the road? There are skid marks in front of the dog. What's the difference between a mosquito and a lawyer? One is a blood-sucking parasite and the other one is an insect. What's the difference between a vulture and a lawyer. The lawyer gets frequent flyer miles. What does a lawyer use for birth control? His personality.

That's it for today, my little dixie cups. See you tonight at Lakes Cafe and more tomorow.

Stay Tuned !

Hey Jimmy! Hope you have a great and fun time tonight in the Area 51 tonight. Drink 1 or 2 for me, ok???  BTW, a woman I work with at school had an aunt that was a WAC during WWII and worked in someway with the Spruce Goose. I got to meet her last year just before she passed. She was a real hoot!!
Happy Hump Day!
Jackie

The lawyer jokes were great and I loved the pictures.  Somehow I could tell their was some medical training in your background.
