Well, it's Friday my little junior mints and that means it's party time in the AREA 51 arenas around the various cities and towns. I'm thinking about going to the karaoke show at Lakes Cafe and Pub but it's way to early to make a commitment. I still do not have all of my missions planned as of yet, but maybe I'll start formulating a workable Plan A for tonight. One of the major problems I've had this week is finding a day that works for myself and the missionee (That's not a word. Shutup!).
Nevertheless, I'm flying solo tonight (unless one of my missions can escape the home) and I'm sure it will be a fun night. The current plan is not to be out all night, but one never knows....do one?

Barack Obama made a speech in Germany yesterday and his supporters are already attempting to compare his speech to similar speeches made there by Presidents John F. Kennedy and Ronald Reagan. Uh, sorry Sammy, you ain't no Kennedy and you ain't da prez. With the media spreading their proverbial legs for every move that he makes, Obama might just skip being president and go directly to the Vatican and become pope.

The Hits Just Keep On Coming: Thanks to my pal, Garnett, for the following joke.
Two blonde girls were working for the city public works department. One would dig a hole and the other would follow behind her and fill the hole in. They worked up one side of the street, then down the other, then moved on to the next street, working furiously all day without rest, one girl digging a hole and the other filling it in again.
An onlooker was amazed at their hard work, but couldn't understand what they were doing. Finally, he said to the blonde digging the hole, "I'm impressed by the effort you two are putting in to your work, but I don't get it. Why do you dig a hole, only to have your partner follow behind and fill it up again?"
The blonde wiped her brow and said, "well, I suppose it looks odd because we're normally a three person team, but today the girl who plants the trees called in sick."
That's it for today my little Cracker Jackson Jills. Have a great and safe weekend and more on Monday.
