I'm Late, I'm Late, I'm Late !

Friday has arrived and AREA 51 is my intended destination, but I'm really not sure where I'm going (other than I am going). As of last evening, I was supposed to go out this evening with my sweet Nicole, but the spirit gods did a number on her last night and she called to postpone.

So, here I sit, broken hearted, wait....... that's from a different rhyme... Ok, here I sit, it's almost 7:00 p.m., and I'm still finishing today's entry. I still have to shower and get dressed (oooh, the pressure's on. Shut-up!). Well, I'll figure out something and I'll be in AREA 51 somewhere tonight ! And soon !

Happy Mothers Day to all the ladies (and a few of the men). This day brings loving memories of my mom, especially with the time and patience she invested in me. As you may have guessed, I was somewhat unruly as a kid and regimentation was really not a part of my repertoire. Of course, this attitude was swiftly corrected when my father got wind of the situation and he escorted me to the rear of the property and adjusted my attitude.

In my day, a can of whoop-ass, was ofttimes used to persuade a child to understand the the difference between right and wrong. Today, it's called child abuse ! If that law was to have been enforced in my day, all the parents would have been in jail. Today, it's just the kids who go to jail because they did not suffer the "child abuse" of having their asses kicked when it was needed !

Weekend Update: Due to being behind schedule with today's entry, I'm adding this new segment to see how it works. I'll be back periodically to add anything new over the weekend. If I add anything new, it will be added with time and date.  

The Pictures: Do you remember going to drive-ins? That's drive-in eats and drive-in movies. Look and see if your car is among today's pic's. Then, there's this guy who decided to jump onto a pinnacle rock, take some pics and jump back, with one hand holding his equipment and only one hand free to grab the rock.

This Date In History: 1671; Irish adventurer Thomas Blood, known as Colonel Blood, is caught after stealing the crown jewels from the Tower of London.

Evidence later indicates that they may not have reached the pole. 1974; The U.S. House Judiciary Committee begins hearings on whether to recommend the impeachment of President Richard Nixon following the Watergate scandal.

Birthdays: Sir James Barrie, dramatist and novelist (1860), Pancho Gonzalez, American tennis player (1928), Candace Bergen, actress (1946), Billy Joel, singer (1949).

The Hits Just Keep On Coming:

At a senior citizens luncheon, an elderly gentleman and an elderly lady struck up a conversation and discovered that they both loved to fish. Since both of them were widowed, they decided to go fishing together the next day. The gentleman picked the lady up, they headed to the river to his fishing boat and set off on their fishing adventure.

Arriving at a fork in the river, the gentleman turned to the lady and said, "Do you want to up or down?" All of a sudden the woman took off all her clothes and made passionate love to the man right there in the boat! The man could not believe his good fortune.

About an hour later, they started the boat again and came to another fork in the river. The man turned to the lady and said, "Up or down." There she went again ! She stripped off her clothes and made passionate love to him again. The man was so happy he ask her to go fishing again the next day.

So the next day, they were riding in the boat and came to the fork in the river. The gentleman said to the lady, "Up or down?" The lady replied, "Down." Confused and somewhat disappointed the man guided the boat down the river until he came to another fork in the river. He asked the lady, "Up or down?" The woman replied, "Up." Finally, the confused gentleman could not stand it any longer and said, "What is the deal with you? Yesterday, every time I asked you, 'Up or down', you made mad passionate love to me. Now today, nothing!"

The lady replied, "Well, yesterday I wasn't wearing my hearing aid and I thought the two choices were, 'Hump or drown."

A brunette is trying to get across the river and suddenly she spots a blonde on the other side. She yells over to the blonde, "Hey, excuse me! How do I get over to the other side?" After a quick survey of the river, the blonde call back, "You ARE on the other side!"

That's it for today my mighty little mice. Happy Mothers Day ! Have a great and safe weekend and more on Monday.

Stay Tuned !

Love the pictures of the "mature" cars.  My first car was a 1949 Chrysler & then I graduated to a 1954 Chev.  I loved that car. Then some jerk went thru a stop sign and hit my precious car on the passenger side. It was ruined. :(    I had two girl friends that worked at a large drive in restaurant here in town in the late 1950's.  And there is still a drive in movie just a few blocks from my house that we went to while in high school.  The big screen is still there but the property is used for a weekend Swap Meet now.  The fact that they've never taken down the screen makes me wonder if the present owners have it in the back of their mind to re-open it as a drive in again some day. Have a good weekend...Linda in WA

I remember drive in's...wish they were still around.  My folks used to take us when we were kids, and we loved it!  I went a few times as a teenager too (before they closed) and I used to sneak my friends into the drive in by hiding them in my trunk.  :)

Well, at least a "stranger" wished me a Happy Mothers day...............SIGH!   I'm having a greyhound right now, made with Ruby red grapefruit juice. It's very refreshing and a pretty pink color.   I have a nominee for the Cat's Ass Trophy.  DMX a.k.a. Earl (Earl's Gotta Die/Dixie Chicks) Simmons, was arrested today. It's his second arrest in a week. We was clocked on the 101 doing 117 mph in a 55 mph zone. THEN they found e had pit bulls tied up outside of his Cave Creek home and used them for fighting.  They took some away from him earlier but he bought more.  Get this, the big rapper hid in his bedroom when they came for him.  What a sorry piece of sh*t!   I say, feed his sorry butt to the dogs!    Anne

My response would have would have been in jail today if it were not for the tough love of your parents.....& thats  what is it is called, not child abuse.  I am sure your father didn't enjoy the attitude adjustment!(or maybe in your case...yes Ü)

.....but you beat me to it...Ü
Have a great weekend!
