Well, it took it's sweet time, but it's finally Hump Day, which gives me the excuse to carouse with my friends in AREA 51 at Lakes Cafe. I'm unsure of my arrival time, because I have to stop by and see a friend who's been under the weather, but inevitiably, I'll be traipsing in !
The residents of AREA 51 have been gearing up for Thanksgiving and I'm sure that there's going to be some great dishes to be enjoyed next week. One of the more different dishes that is prepared, in addition to the normal fare, is the Cuban turkey (don't go there). It's prepared with garlic, sour oranges and a sauce called "mojo" (pronounced mo-ho and not to be confused with the mo-ho that The Rev "Podium Al" Sharpton uses). It's an exciting taste and fits right in beside the traditional turkey. I look forward to next week's celebrations.
I saw a person who's a vegetarian today on television and during the interview, she said, "I'm a vegetarian. I haven't eaten meat in five years". Whoop dee doo ! I haven't eaten a banana in four months ! Why is it necessary for people to tell you things that you could care less about?
From The Poetic Justice Department:
The Good; A waiter in a New Orleans casino found a wallet with $8,000 in it and turned it in. The wallet belonged to a surgeon who had won the money while gambling. While hesitant about accepting a reward, the surgeon was so moved by the waiter's honesty, he gave the entire $8,000 to the waiter.
The Bad; A thief was running from the police at the Miccosukee Indian Casino in Miami Dade County. In the act of escape, he dove into a pond to elude the police. He failed, however, to read the sign posted at the pond which read; Beware of Alligators. They found his body at the bottom of the lake with toothmarks on it.
The Pictures: Today's pictures take us beneath the sea to take a look at some of the exotic creatures and plants that dwell there. I did not put a picture of my ex mother-in-law in the pictures although she does qualify.

The Hits Just Keep On Coming: Thanks to My Perfect Martini
A man has six children and is very proud of his achievement. He is so proud of himself, that he starts calling his wife," Mother of Six" in spite of her objections.
One night, they go to a party. The man decides that it is time to go home and wants to find out if his wife is ready to leave as well. He shouts at the top of his voice, "Shall we go home Mother of Six?"
His wife, irritated by her husband's lack of discretion, shouts right back, "Any time you're ready, Father of Four."
Thanks to my pal, Victor
As Claude went to the front of the meeting room, he announced, "Unlike most hypnotists who invite two or three people up here to be put into a trance, I intend to hypnotize each and every member of the audience." The excitement was almost electric as Claude withdrew a beautiful antique pocket watch from his coat.
"I want you each to keep your eye on thi s antique watch. It's a very
special watch. It's been in my family for six generations." He began to
swing the watch gently back an! d forth while quietly chanting, "Watch the watch, watch the watch, watch the watch..."
The crowd became mesmerized as the watch swayed back and forth, light gleaming off its polished surface. Hundreds of pairs of eyes followed the swaying watch, until, suddenly, it slipped from the hypnotist's fingers
and fell to the floor, breaking into a hundred pieces.
"Shit" said the Hypnotist.
It took three days to clean up the senior center
