I Must Be Doing Something Right !

I'm on a roll (kaiser, I think). We had a great time last night at Lakes Cafe and I think everybody needed it. AREA 51 was in rare form with Lourdes leading the way. Hector, Lourdes and Christina are living with his parents while their house is being remodeled and I think it's starting to get to them. Lourdes kept everyone laughing and it was really a fun night. Lydia and Al, Dr. Marc and Rosie joined us for the evening, so you can imagine the crazy conversation.

As I mentioned, things have been going well now for two days and I'm very near breaking my old record of four straight days of prosperity, which I set in 1990 when I got my divorce. Furthermore, I hit the lottery last night and I plan to buy myself a special treat with the $5.50 winnings. Via a trip to Publix today, I was able to restock Mother Hubbard's Cupboard.

To beat that, I settled my score with the fragrance counter at Publix, who was to have supposedly ordered some cologne for me three months ago, then wanted to charge me the regular price instead of the sale price. As luck would have it, I saw the store manager entering the store, who just happened to be speaking with the district manager.

I told them my problem and they personally escorted me to the fragrance department and instructed the dim-witted little salesperson to give me the cologne at the sale price (which I invented because I have the memory of a mirror). For the record, even though I never disclose any of the colognes I'm wearing, it's called Kouros and I guarantee you'll love it.

The Pictures: Toadstools, barstools, prozac, cats and a partridge in a pear tree (I made the last part up). Shithead (my cat - sleeping - check out his seven toed paws), canyons and arches, sleepy beaches, and the Lone Ranger and Tonto. A Pefect Martini (do tell), and my pal Woody Woodpecker.

This Date In History: 1811; John Stevens and his son Robert Livingston Stevens operate the first ferryboat between New York City and Hoboken, New Jersey. 1980; The Soviet cosmonauts Valery Ryumint and Leonard Popov return to Earth after a record 185 days in space aboard Salyut 6.

Birthdays: Eleanor Roosevelt, social activist (1884), Art Blakely, American jazz drummer and bandleader (1919), Maria Bueno, Brazilian amateur tennis player.

The Hits Just Keep On Coming:

                              

 

                     

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

Stay Tuned !

I don't like too many men's colognes...next time I'm around a bunch, I'll take a sniff of yours....

Cartoons are too funny :)  The days when all is well are appreciated more because you've experienced the hard times.  Never heard of that cologne.  You don't bathe in it, do you?  They had an e-mail on the radio station I listen to, this morning, a guy wrote to say that he had a date, 1 time, with a girl, and he thought all had gone well.  He called her the next day and she was kind of aloof. He asked her friend if she knew what was wrong.  His date from the previous night didn't like his cologne.  Now, that could have been the truth, or maybe he just used too much of it...or maybe she wasn't that into him and used the cologne story to dump him.  Who knows...
