Where There's Smoke, There's Fire !

It's Mundane and a new work week to wade through as I look forward to Thanksgiving Day. Not much real partying on that great day, per se, just family, friends, turkey and football. I love it.

Speaking of partying, my regular journey to AREA 51 this weekend was a lot of fun. The karaoke show was great and, oddly enough, there was little mention of the presidential election. Of course, when there's wine, women and song, nothing else really comes to mind. I really didn't over-indulge too much and arrived home at a respectable 2:00 am.

On a side note to my pal Linda in chilly Washington state, my bread crumb plan didn't work too well this weekend as a family of ducks have discovered my plan. I was kinda wondering why they were patiently waiting next to my car.

Tomorrow is Veterans Day and I urge all Americans to take the time and honor the men and women of the armed forces who gave of themselves to keep America free.

The Cat's Ass Trophy (CAT) Award. Garnett nominated Eliot Spencer, the former governor of New York governor who resigned after it was discovered that he had paid for prostitutes multiple times from a service called The Emperor's Club VIP.

Michael Garcia, the US attorney in Manhattan, said Mr Spitzer will not be prosecuted over the call girl scandal which forced his resignation. Garcia said that Spitzer had paid for prostitutes on "multiple occasions" but his office had found no evidence that he used public money or campaign funds.

The married Democrat, who had campaigned as a moral crusader, was identified in phone conversations involving the escort agency as Client 9.

The judges (My cat Shithead and myself) are in agreement with Garnett and The CAT Award goes to Eliot Spitzer. A second CAT Award is also awarded to U.S. Attorney Michael Garcia for his failure to prosecute Mr. Spitzer.

This Date In History 1908; Elizabeth Garrett Anderson is elected mayor of Aldeburgh, in Suffolk, thus becoming England’s first woman mayor. 1918; Kaiser William II abdicates, ending centuries of Hohenzollern rule in Germany. 1938; Throughout Germany, Kristallnacht, or the "Night of Broken Glass", sees a night of savage attacks on Jews and their property orchestrated by the Nazis.

1953; Dylan Thomas dies in New York from the effects of alcohol and incorrect medication. 1989; German citizens begin to demolish the Berlin Wall, which has separated East Germany from West Germany since 1961.

Picture Of The Day Where there's smoke, there's fire and I've seen this phenomenon in action. One can get easily singed while playing with fire and I urge all to use extreme caution. Of course, one can always get over a few minor blisters.

The Hits Just Keep On Coming

A very attractive young lady was sitting in a fine restaurant one night. Waiting for her date as she was, she wanted to make sure everything was perfect. So, as she bends down in her chair to get the mirror from her purse, she accidentally passes gas quite loudly just as the waiter walks up.

Sitting up straight now, embarrassed and red faced, knowing everyone in the place heard her, turns to the waiter and demands "Stop That!" The waiter looks at her dryly and says "Sure lady, which way was it headed?"

A farmer goes in half with a friend to buy a bull so he can increase his stock. A couple of weeks later, the friend comes by to see how his investment is doing. The farmer complains that the bull just eats grass and wouldn't look at the cows. His friend suggests that a veterinarian have a look at the bull.

The friend leaves and the farmer calls the vet to have him look at the bull. After the vet checks out the bull, he gives the farmer some pills and tells him to give the bull one pill a day.

The following week his friend returns to see if the vet helped. The farmer is delighted and says, "The bull has taken care of all my cows, broke through the fence, and has even serviced all my neighbor's cows!" His friend says, "Wow, what did the vet do to that bull?"

The farmer says, "Just gave him some pills". His friend says, "What kind of pills?" The farmer says, "I don't know, but they sort of taste like peppermint."

That's it for today my happy little heifers. Remember our men and women of the armed forces and more on Wednesday.

Stay Tuned !

Sorry about the bread crum incident....well have to think of something else. Loved the jokes. The sun has actually been shining all day here but of course it's only 50*. I can see we'll be building a fire in the woodstove again tonight. Linda in sunny Washington state
