Last night a friend and I sang June and Johnny's Jackson at karaoke. Ring Of Fire could be next.

Big life change coming for me. My barber is moving to Mendocino by the end of the year. He's been cutting my hair since 1986 and the only person to cut my hair since movng here in the fall of '85. It was going to happen sooner or later as he is two years younger than me but it's going to be weird.

Out for a stroll with my wife and we end up at Denny's for their fabulous french toast and endless coffee bar. By coincidence I spot my best friend, John, and he's up and headed to the men's room. So I get up and go to hassle him while he's ... busy. Inside is one urinal and one toilet box and John's in there. So I stand before the urinal and start singing "Where The Boys Are." John knows right away its me and starts in on what a beautiful voice I have and from there on it's one gay joke after another. Dear Flower, on a scale of 1 - 10, how inappropriate was that?

Dear Jimmy .. you are mixing me up with someone else but .. it's perfectly fine to take a stroll with your wife. I haven't been to a Denny's in years and didn't know that they had coffee bars .. Thanks for the update.

All that being said .. How did you know that I loved "Where The Boys Are"? Is the movie big in Japan. Was there a reboot? I just found out this morning that there was a "Benji" reboot last year. ;)

In the mail today there was an envelope appearing to contain a greeting card of some sort (I didn't open it), hand-addressed to my paternal grandmother... who died more than a quarter-century ago and who never lived at this address. (On closer inspection, I found it came from the American Cancer Society.)

I'll send out more flyers this week in hopes of finding our missing cat. I saw a cartoon on a lost and found cat's fb page that had me in tears on Thursday night .. I couldn't stop crying. I miss her soo much.

My US passport has arrived. The picture is ghastly. I look like I’m chained to a radiator awaiting rescue.

Both the New Orleans Saints and the New York Jets won ... :D

Both won with a score of 34 - 17 .... I only follow the Saints, Jets and Giants. The Giants had a bye last week.

I know that I shouldn't but do so from time to time.

It seems that on that other place, they think that I'm getting "excited" by the image association thread ... :lol: :lol:

Well, there is the old adage .. A kitten a day, will keep the monsters away.

I just looked out the back and one of my neighbor's cats is nibbling/enjoying the cat mint. I cut most and am drying it out but love it that our neighborhood cats are still enjoying the mint, even with a bit of snow on the ground.

Our ‘local’, where I go with my pal, now recognises us as regulars and they have our drinks poured before we have even sat down which feels nice. As of last night, they have started piling our snack plates incredibly high- and if you are wondering what the answer to the question ‘can you eat too much deep fried yucca’ is, it’s ‘yes.’

That's lovely (apart from the too much yucca bit).

I miss my local.

I can imagine. Maybe you should open a new local!

Truly mind bending that these things can be found on the internet.


Do you know if she did manage to trace any family members?

She did - both the family members she asked about had fled to Philadelphia, and in the 1980s she and I went out to visit them - my first ever visit to the States.

While we were there, I played too vigorously on their lounge swing chair and brought half the plasterwork down on Christmas Eve. They were thrilled.

Ugh. Too much work, and I'd probably drink any profits.

I've got twenty employees and EIGHT campaigns at the moment.
It's a big secret but I might have a promotion coming, too, so go me.
