Scotch On The Rocks !

This probably ought to be under The Hits Just Keep On Coming, but it happens to be true (and funny). It seems that India launched a TV-sized probe adorned with a painting of the Indian flag from the unmanned lunar orbiter Chandrayaan-1 and made a crash landing on the lunar surface today around 10:01 a.m. (ET).

I'm not really sure what that actually means or what they accomplished but methinks the next news conference will be Indian officials claiming the rights for the taxi cab driver and 7-11 franchises.

Today is party day and I'll be going to AREA 51 for the karaoke show and see my pals. I haven't sang in the karaoke show for some time and perhaps tonight I will. I've really been a lot more interested in how the new management will be handling the club. There's been a quite a few more people at Lakes Cafe on Friday nights but the jury is still out as to the way they're running the club. We'll see.

I've added two versions of "Girl From Ipanema" to my music playlist. One is by Frank Sinatra and the other is by Antonio Carlos Jobim and Astrud Gilberto, with Stan Getz. In case neither is playing as you read today's post, keep in mind that you can click on any song and it will play. If you like music, you'll love the Jobim-Gilberto version in Portugese and English.

The Cat's Ass Trophy Award: Sometimes the cat gets a taste of his own medicine. I wonder if this comes under the category of "giving the bird"? In the meantime, nominations are open for this week's CAT Award and will remain open until Monday at noon. Take your best shot.

This Date In History 1770; After two years spent in Abyssinia, now Ethiopia, explorer James Bruce discovers the source of the Blue Nile at Lake Tana. 1851; Herman Melville’s Moby Dick, one of the masterpieces of English literature, is published in its entirety for the first time.

1922; The British Broadcasting Company, now the British Broadcasting Corporation, transmits its first daily radio service from London. 1941; HMS Ark Royal, the Royal Navy’s celebrated aircraft carrier of World War II, sinks after being torpedoed the previous day by a German submarine while en route to Gibraltar.

Photo Of The Day My pal, Anne, author of Saturday's Child, sent me this beautiful picture. One thing I really miss about AOL Journals was the ability to post multiple pictures and themes. I'll add some additional pictures throughout today's entry.

Birthdays: Claude Monet, French painter 1840, Jawaharlal Nehru, Indian nationalist leader and statesman 1889, Aaron Copland, American composer 1900, Hussein I, king of Jordan 1935, Prince Charles, Prince of Wales 1948.

The Hits Just Keep On Coming

A precious little girl walks into a pet shop and asks in the sweetest little lisp, "Excuthe me, mithter, do you keep widdle wabbits?" As the shopkeeper's heart melts, he gets down on his knees, so that he's on her level, and asks, "Do you want a widdle white wabby or a thoft and fuwwy bwack wabby or maybe one like that cute widdle bwown wabby over there?" She, in turn blushes, rocks on her heels, puts her hands on her knees, leans forward and says in a quiet voice, "I don't fink my pet python weally gives a thit."

Two guys were discussing popular family trends on sex, marriage, and values. Stuart said, "I didn't sleep with my wife before we got married, did you?" Leroy replied, "I'm not sure, what was her maiden name?"

A Drunk wanders into a seminar where a psychiatrist is addressing a group of people who have all had experiences with the supernatural. The psychiatrist asks, "Who here has seen a ghost?" Everyone puts up their hands. He then asks, "Who here has spoken with a ghost?" Half the audience puts up their hands. "And who here has touched a ghost?" Ten percent of the crowd puts up their hands.

The psychiatrist then asks, "And who here has made love with a ghost?" The drunk in the back row puts up his hand... The psychiatrist looks down from the podium at the drunk and says: "Do you mean to tell me that you have made love with a ghost?" The drunk replies, "Oh sorry, I thought you said 'goat'."

That's it for today my little bobby soxers. Have a great and safe weekend and more on Monday.

Stay Tuned !

Have a wonderful weekend! Loved your Journal!

BTW, joined in with and it allows you to place a slideshow in your journal...maybe that may work out for you for your multiple photos.

I use this method for my Lantern site for my old classmates as I started a PhotoShop for them in AOL and wanted to continue it because everyone loved sending me their photos to post online for them.

Hugs, Rose

The cat sitting on the horse's back looks similiar to the cat that lives at your house. I don't like the picture process here either. It's very time consuming & doesn't allow for the stack of pictures with text like we had before. Have a good weekend & take care, Linda in WA

Julie said...

You have fun this weekend. I can think of several for the award. How about all the parents who are dropping off their hard to handle teens in Omaha. Or...or or or, LOL. I have to get out from under my dark cloud.
