Friday is finally here and not a moment too soon. The way the economy has been reacting this week kinda makes you want to have a cocktail. I'll be heading over to AREA 51 this evening to see my pals and see what's going on. It's karaoke night and with the change in ownership at Lakes Cafe and Pub, it should be interesting to see what's up with the new crowd.

The Hits Just Keep On Coming
A man was in a terrible accident, and his 'manhood' was mangled and torn from his body. His doctor assured him that modern medicine could give him back his manhood, but that his insurance wouldn't cover the surgery since it was considered cosmetic.
The doctor said the cost would be $3,500 for 'small,' $6,500 for 'medium,' and $14,000 for 'large.' The man was sure he would want a medium or large, but the doctor urged him to talk it over with his wife before he made any decision. The man called his wife on the phone and explained their options.
The doctor came back into the room, and found the man looking dejected. 'Well, what have the two of you decided?' asked the doctor. The man said, "She'd rather remodel the kitchen."
A husband and wife came for counseling after 15 years of marriage. When asked what the problem was, the wife went into a passionate, painful tirade listing every problem they had ever had in the 15 years they had been married.
She went on and on and on: neglect, lack of intimacy, emptiness, loneliness, feeling unloved and unlovable, an entire laundry list of un-met needs she had endured over the course of their marriage.
Finally, after allowing this to go on for a sufficient length of time, the therapist got up, walked around the desk and, after asking the wife to stand, embraced and kissed her passionately. The woman shut up and quietly sat down as though in a daze.
The therapist turned to the husband and said, "This is what your wife needs at least three times a week Can you do this?" The husband thought for a moment and replied,.. "Well, I can drop her off here on Mondays and Wednesdays, but on Friday's, I fish! "
That's it for today my little butter beans. Have a great and safe weekend and more on Monday.
