"To The Hump, To The Hump, To The Hump, Hump, Hump !"

Wow ! Hump Day already ! With Monday off and a restful Tuesday, today, like The Lone Ranger, just kinda slipped up on me. So, I was sitting here trying to figure out exactly what my entry would contain and I kept drawing a blank. My mind kept wandering off (and then I'd have to get up and get it) and I couldn't seem to concentrate. Therefore, I decided to just go with it and see where my wandering little mind would take me.

My first stop was my video collection and I started watching the videos until I came upon one that I had completely forgotten about. Watching this youngster also reminds you that if you really try and concentrate, you can do anything.

                                                                

Methinks that baby is a boy because he seemed to take pleasure in his accomplishment. I'm sure that his father will train him well, beginning with every lad's first experience with his father, the old "pull my finger" trick. For some reason, my guess that this tradition has been passed on from father to son for many generations.

It's Hump Day so I'll be heading to AREA 51, the exact location of which remains in the air. I'd like to go by Lakes Cafe for happy hour, but by the same token, I also feel like playing dominoes. Who knows, maybe one of my lady friends will call and then it will really be destination unknown ! We'll see.

Some Think Obama Can Walk On Water but I've got pictures on how "the great exaggerator" does it..... 

                       

The Pictures: My pal, Garnett, was "itching" to sent me these pics of the Olympic Gardens in Beijing, China. I've added a few "different"  photographs as well.

Birthdays: William Pitt, British prime minister (1759), Thomas Moore, poet (1779), Jim Thorpe, athlete (1888), Ian Flemming, British novelist and creator of the character, James Bond (1908), Jerry West, professional basketball player and coach (1938).

Picture #25 reminds me of my Gabi~begging for a treat when she has dry food available at all times in two locations in this humble abode.  The video~that baby certainly had a well powdered bottom !  The Obama Lama Ding Dong cartoon is great and thankfully I will only be a faint memory in 2056 !  Have fun this evening and behave yourself.

The one about the camera shutter and woman with her mouth shut made me laugh out loud!  After having a three and a half hour lunch with an aunt and a cousin today I can vouch for that - we didn't stop talking!

I love reading your journal entries, for someone who didn't know what he was going to write about, you didn't do too bad!!  Pat http://journals.aol.co.uk/pm71blackfen/ramblings-from-pat/
