I'm always happy to welcome Friday and the fun that it brings. Everyone's starting to talk about Halloween and all the festivities and parties. I, personally, am not prone to costumes but have been pressured enough, at times, by my peers to "invent" one. The easiest way for me was to wear black slacks and a black shirt, which I normally would wear anyway with a grey and black patterned Armani sport coat. I would then get a rubber band, a white piece of light cardboard that you use for gift boxes and fashion a collar, which I put beneath my shirt collar and voila !..... I'm become Father Jimmy.
This concept is not an easy sell at any dog and pony show, especially to my lady friends. I can handled the sly smiles, but the raised eyebrows are a little tougher. "Right !", seems to be one of the favorite comments. Oh well, I try.
I'll be heading to Lakes Cafe and Pub tonight, hopefully to be joined by my sweet Nicole for cocktails. I put a photograph of Nicole and I in the pictures today. We always have a good time and we oftime sing duets. AREA 51 should be lively tonight, so join me if you can.
I watched a piece yesterday on CNN where a young woman found a seven foot python in her toilet. It seems she got up in the middle of the night to use the bathroom and since her bathroom only had low lighting, she simply sat down and proceed with her transaction. Upon completion of same, she turned to flush the toilet and that is when she saw the python.
When she returned (after screaming very loudly I would surmise) with help to capture the reptile, it had retreated back into the plumbing. I, myself, have sat on the throne many evenings in the hopes of looking down and seeing a python, but, alas, no such luck. I'm relatively sure that her next trip to the bathroom will be with the "look before you leap" attitude !
The Pictures: More fall pictures, some western pictures by Don Marco and a little pumkin humor are the highlights of today's entry. As I told you earlier, I've entered a picture of Nicole, an homage to tequila, some flowery pic's and a few humous shots that I enjoy.
