Better Late Than Mediocre Much Later !

I've never rode a camel.....smoked one, but never rode one. My familiarity with humps depend on the context of the question. These two facts notwithstanding, I am prepared to ride an imaginary one humped or two humped camel into the beckoning oasis of AREA 51 on Hump Day at a location yet to be determined. If the preceding sentences confuse you, just imagine what's going on inside the mind of the author.

Happy Hump Day my little dromedaries! It is that time of the week and it's time to "hit it." Mon and Tue are no longer necessary to use as prefixes this week as we're at the proverbial acme of the workweek and zeroing in on Friday.

I've intended to go to the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel and Casino since last week but I've been able to talk myself out of it. The main reason is because the last time I went there, the weekend started off on a Friday at a restaurant and lounge called Capriccio's. The bar there is great, the performer's been there for a while and I'm sometimes invited to sing.

Well, I sang, and I drank, and I danced, and later, I ended up at the Casino. I'm relatively sure I had a great time and judging by my wallet the next day, I did ok in the casino. The only minor problem is that there are certain ambiguous parts of the evening and the partial phone number of a woman whose name ends in ....dy

The Pictures: Today's post is late because the author took a "short nap" at 1:00 p.m. and just woke up. Thankfully, most of today's entry was finished before the "nap". Celebrity endorsements are today's theme. Someone let me know if I've ran these before as my brain's still foggy. Ah yes, it's Hump Day.

The Hits Just Keep On Coming:

A married couple was in a terrible accident where the woman's face was severely burned. The doctor told the husband that they couldn't graft any skin from her body because she was too skinny. So the husband offered to donate some of his own skin.

However, the only skin on his body that the doctor felt was suitable would have to come from his buttocks. The husband and wife agreed that they would tell no one about where the skin came from, and requested that the doctor also honor their secret. After all, this was a very delicate matter.

After the surgery was completed, everyone was astounded at the woman's new beauty. She looked more beautiful than she ever had before! All her friends and relatives just went on and on about her youthful beauty! One day, she was alone with her husband, and she was overcome with emotion at his sacrifice. She said, "Dear, I just want to thank you for everything you did for me. There is no way I could ever repay you."

"My darling," he replied, "think nothing of it. I get all the thanks I need every time I see your mother kiss you on the cheek."

That's it for today my little party hats. More tomorrow.

Stay Tuned !
