The weekend was kind to me as I didn't wade in too deeply and the waters were calm. I did stay out a little late Friday evening playing dominoes and shooting the proverbial bull until the a.m., but other than that, I was a relatively good citizen.
I got a bunch of neat stuff this weekend and since it's Monday and I'll be joining "Podium Al" Sharpton in his celebration of MLK day, I thought I'd help you celebrate the day with some of pictures I received.
I always speak of my favorite place, AREA 51 a wonderfully nostalgic and serene destination reached and known by a select few. It seems my world is expanding (and receiving mail) as seen in the following picture captured and sent to me by my pal, Linda.
My pal, Victor sent me the following fishing experience and the words of wisdom that accompanies them.
Two men are out ice fishing at their favorite fishing hole, just fishing quietly and drinking beer.
Almost silently, so as not to scare the fish, Mel says, "I think I'm going to divorce my wife - she hasn't spoken to me in over 2 months."
Earl continues slowly sipping his beer, then thoughtfully says, "You better think it over - women like that are hard to find."
The Pictures: The photos, other than the ones of the fantastic new Mercedes, follow the absolute insanity of today's entry with totally nonsensical pictures, which has been my wont lately. I will do my best to come up with a theme for tomorrow assuming they don't come get me and put me in the home for carousing, unwed journalists.
This Date In History: 1793; Louis XVI is executed by guillotine for treason. 1924; Soviet leader Vladimir Lenin dies at age 54. 1954; The first nuclear-powered submarine, the "Nautilus", is launched by the United States at Groton, Connecticut.

The Hits Just Keep On Coming: The following was sent to me by my pal, Garnett.
Results of recent research shows that there are 7 kinds of sex.
The first is called Smurf Sex: This kind of sex occurs when you first meet someone and you have sex until you are blue in the face.
The second kind of sex is called Kitchen Sex: This occurs when you have been with your partner a short time and you're so horny, you will have sex anywhere.
The third kind of sex is called Bedroom Sex: This happens when your relationship with your partner has become routine and only occurs in the bedroom.
The fourth type of sex is called Hallway Sex: This occurs when you have been with your partner too long. When you pass each other in the hallway, you both say "screw you".
The fifth kind of sex is called Religious Sex: This means you get Nun in the morning and Nun at night (very popular).
The sixth kind of sex is called Courtroom Sex: This happens when you can't stand your partner anymore. They take you to court and screw you in front of everyone.
The seventh kind of sex is called Social Security Sex: You get a little each month, but not enough to enjoy yourself.
And From Jimmy's Corner: The Emergency Room !
A veteran soldier decided the other day that he needed to go to the emergency room to have a gash sutured. Not wanting to spend 6 hours sitting there, he put on his faded old fatigues and stuck a patch on his shirt that he had downloaded off the Internet.
When he entered the emergency room, 3/4 of the people waiting in line immediately got up and left. He assumed that they weren't that sick, after all. Here's the patch. Use it the next time you're in need of quicker emergency service.
That's it for today my little shortcakes. More tomorrow.
