Some Days You Win, Some Days You Lose - It's The Ones That Get Rained Out That Gets You !

Well, it was bound to happen again, as it has in the past. Yesterday, our hero was dressed to the nines, the scent of cologne wafting in the air. As he mused about Thursday's tentative date with the lovely Rocio, CNN News was starting the 7:00 p.m update, so he sat in his recliner to catch the first ten minutes of the news. Fade to black............

I awoke about 10:30, drooling at the mouth as I am wont to do when sleeping, and wondering who I was and where in the hell was I. As my senses began returning to normal,  I finally realized that I had gently slipped into a coma, possibly due to Tuesday night's dominoes game, but a coma nevertheless.

I pondered for a moment as to whether to press on to my intended destination in AREA 51, but discretion being the better part of valor, I decided it was better to cut bait than fish and reserve my energy for another day. For some reason, I still think with a forty year old mind, but the sorry carcass that carries that youthful mind around town has been rode hard and put away wet too many times. Fear not, my little tater tots, the South will rise again and hopefully the body will follow suit and go along with the plan.

Today's Plan A  has gotten a bit complicated as my evening plans, although tentative, have a new twist. My sweet Nicole called and she is getting together this evening with her sister, Kathy, and they invited me for a drink. As of yet, I have have not spoken to the lovely Rocio, with whom I am supposed to meet this evening for happy hour. This one may go down to the wire. We'll see.

I have been following the current situation in Texas, where three hundred plus children have been taken away from their mothers and are currently being held until the current investigation to the Church Of What's Happening Now  (or whatever it's called) has been resolved.

I normally leave each person to his own religion and it's a subject I usually don't bring up in normal conversation. I'm not really sure of what is happening with this sect or group (or whatever..), but I lean towards the children remaining with their mothers and the ones that should be doing some 'splaining are the men. 

I happened to see an interview of some of these women today and it seems to me, if I were a member of this group, that I'd being looking for an organization where the women were a little less homely. That particular feature notwithstanding, all those beauties spoke as if they had recently purchased and used the Sears do-it-yourself lobotomy kit. 

The Pictures: Birds of a feather...... That's todays theme and I've got some new pics mixed in with some of my favorites for your viewing pleasure. Of course, you realize that, as per my wont, there are always variations on a theme. 

This Date In History: 1492; Christopher Columbus signs a contract with Spain, giving him a commission to seek a westward passage to Asia. 1861; The Virginia convention votes to secede from the Union and join the Confederacy. 1961; U.S.-backed Cuban exiles land at the Bay of Pigs to overthrow Fidel Castro's government; the mission is thwarted and the invaders killed or captured. 1964; The Ford Motor Company unveils its new car, theMustang. 1969; Sirhan Sirhan is convicted of assassinating Senator Robert F. Kennedy in June 1968.

Birthdays: Nikita Khruschev, Soviet prime minister (1894), Thornton Wilder, author and Pulitzer Prize winner for his novel, "Our Town" (1897).

Wow you must have needed your rest to miss out on a date! Better to rest so you don't get ME!
Funny that you'd think a 40 yr old mind is young....what about a 48yr old mind (mainly MINE??).
I laughed at your comments on that church. I have been thinking the exact same things....only I don't have the nerve to actually SAY it!  
Have a good night darlin'..
Love, Pam

From what I see, all those women have been brainwashed since the cradle.  But it bothers me that they would allow their young daughter's to be offered up as "brides" once they begin their periods.  For some girls this can happen at age 10 or 11.  I think the state of Texas is looking at their part in all of this as "accomplices" to child rape.  It's another one of those Jim Jones kind of situations..."here little girl, would you like some kool-aid?"  I do think Social Services should educate the mothers about what's illegal with the happenings in this compound. And who knows, perhaps some of the younger men, if they were born into this sect, are not knowledgeable about the laws either.  It's a tragedy for sure...Linda in WA

I like the way you put that lobotomy kit thing...humorous, but oh so true. Great pictures, enjoyed them very much. LOVE the medication renditions...made me laugh much! :) I got your request for updated pics of the emus, will get those up soon. I wish they would get out into the pasture some. They tend to hang up around the horse a lot, because they think he is mama I think. ;) Kelly
