I beat the paper boy home by at least two hours this morning. I'd tell you the exact time time, but it would be a guess at best. Checking my watch in the wee hours is not one of my fortes. I'm just happy I found my way home. This leaving a trail of breadcrumbs trick works rather well.
I made it over to Lakes Cafe and Pub around 11:00 last night. I would have gotten there earlier but I stopped by my pal, Emilio's house and we ended up having a couple of scotches at his house just shooting the breeze. It was a slow evening there and there weren't many people there. The Wednesday night Texas hold-em poker game was on and that's about it. We ended up going back to Emilio's house and played dominoes 'til late.
On A Personal Note I found a way to remember the names of the women I meet.
John Edwards announced his support of Barack Obama yesterday. I wonder if someone is fishing for a vice-presidential position?
My Pal, Garnett has resorted to showing his ass for money! He says, it's because he needs the money for gas for his wife, Debbie's car. Personally, I think he's just proud of his ass and would probably show it for free. I've seen his ass and I don't think it is anything out of the ordinary, but you be the judge...
The Pictures: Things you don't normally see in Cinncinnati unless you're working at WKRP. What does this mean? I have no idea but I needed about three lines of text to fill this space. Go ahead and look at the pictures anyway 'cause I think you'll enjoy them.

The Hits Just Keep On Coming: Today's joke comes by way of my pal, Andy the Bastard (that's his name folks, don't shoot the messenger) and is rated PG.
Mrs. Donovan was walking down O'Connell Street in Dublin when she met up with Father Flaherty.
The Father said, "Top of the mornin' to ye! Aren't ye Mrs. Donovan and didn't I marry ye and yer hoosband 2 years ago?" She replied, " Aye, that ye did Father."
The Father asked, "And be there any wee little ones, yet?" She replied, "No, not yet, Father."The Father said, "Well now, I'm going to Rome next week and I'll light a candle for ye and yer hoosband." She said, "Oh, thank ye, Father." They then parted ways.
Some years later they met again. The Father asked, "Well now, Mrs. Donovan, how are ye these days?" She replied, "Oh, very well Father!"
The Father asked, "And tell me, have ye any wee ones yet?" She answered, "Oh, yes, Father! Two sets of twins and 4 singles, eight in all!"
The Father said, "That's wonderful! How is yer hoosband doing?" She said, "E' gone to Rome to blow out yer fookin' candle!"
An Amish boy and his father were visiting a mall for the first time. They were amazed by almost everything they saw, but especially by two shiny, silver walls with buttons on the side. The boy asked, "What is this, Father?" His father responded,"Son, I have never seen this before. It says 'elevator', but I don't know what that word means."
At that moment, an elderly lady in a wheel chair rolled up to the moving walls and pressed the button. The walls opened and the lady rolled her wheelchair between then and entered into a small room. The walls closed and they watched small circles of light with numbers above the walls light up. They continued to watch the circles light up in the reverse direction.The walls opened up again and a beautiful young woman stepped out. The father turned to his son and said, "Go get your mother!"
That's it for today my little nanny goats. More tomorrow.
