August has arrived (and right on time I might add) and we're heading for cooler autumn weather. I heard someone remark the other day about Halloween candy being spotted on some store shelves. Fortunately, half of my time is spent wondering what I did last night and the other half on what I'll be doing today. Future events will arrive at the same time they did the previous year and I'm sure someone will give me a heads-up when that event comes to pass.
In the meantime, T.G.I.F and I'm ready to go out and play. There's plenty of things to in Miami and there's always something happening somewhere. I'll be heading for AREA 51 to see my pals and my first stop will probably be the karaoke show at Lakes Cafe and Pub. It's usually fun and that will give me time to ponder my next destination.
Watching late night TV last night, I came up with the following conclusions:
1) Televangelists are the Pro Wrestlers of religion. 2) Every mind has a photographic memory, although most have no film. 3) Evidently, there is a market for men who actually believe that Extendz actually works. 4) My vacuum cleaner needs to be replaced. 5) Good health is merely the slowest possible rate at which one can die. 6) Old people believe everything, middle age people suspect everything and young people know everything. 7) Men are like toilets, either vacant, engaged or full of crap. 8) Parents take Prozac to keep their teenagers alive. 9) The reason why children are always happy is because they have no children. 10) Paying alimony is like feeding a dead horse.
The Pictures: I always enjoy seeing pictures of flowers. Some of the best shots, I usually stea...borrow from my fellow journalist pals, Nancy, author of Nancy Luvs Pix, Julie, author of Julie Loses It and Beth, author of Nutwood Junction. You can visit their journals by clicking the link on my sidebar under "Other Journals.". They always post beautiful flower pictures and I'll be sharing some them with you today, along with others in my portfolio.

The Hits Just Keep On Coming:
A young blonde girl, down on her luck, decided to end it all by casting herself off the San Francisco Bay Bridge into the cold waters below. As she stood on the edge pondering the infinite, a passing sailor noticed her as he strolled by. The sailor asked, "You're not thinking of jumping, are you, babe?" The sobbing girl replied, "Yes, I am."
Putting his arm around her, the kind sailor coaxed her back from the edge. 'Look, nothing's worth that. I'll tell you what; I'm sailing off for Australia tomorrow. Why don't you stow away on board and start a new life over there. I'll set you up in one of the lifeboats on the deck, bring you food and water every night and I'll look after you if you look after me - if you know what I mean. You just have to keep very quiet so that you won't be found'.
The girl, having no better prospects, agreed, and the sailor sneaked her on board that very night. For the next 3 weeks the sailor came to her lifeboat every night, bringing food and water, and making love to her until dawn.
Then, during the fourth week, the captain was performing a routine inspection of the ship and its lifeboats. He peeled back the cover to find the startled blonde, and demanded an explanation. The girl came clean, 'I've stowed away to get to Australia. One of the sailors is helping me out. He set me up in here and brings me food and water every night and he's screwing me.'
The captain stared at her for a moment before he replied, "He certainly is, my love. This is the San Francisco Bay Ferry."
That's it for today my little guaca mollies. Have a great and safe weekend and more on Monday.
