A Holleman's Karaoke Night At Sabores Restaurant
I got a weekend pass from the AREA 51 Retirement Home to attend Holleman's Karaoke at Sabores Restaurant Friday. The turnout was great and I was fortunate to see two of my favorite ladies, Ileana and Sandra. It was also good to see my pal high school Randy and his lovely lady Linda, as well as my friends Carol, Luly and many others.
After Holleman's Restaurant was sold, there had been a part of the community that somehow went lacking and the rebirth of Holleman's Karaoke at Sabores Restaurant reunited a close and well knit group, most of whom have known each other for quite a while, some biblically.
There were many good karaoke performances by a host of singers and quite a few people dancing to the music. As usual, the venue was filled with a plethora of lovely ladies.
It was a personal delight for me to see the always beautiful Ileana and to meet the lovely Sandra, my long time Blogger friend, in person. Additionally, I met a new friend, Henry, who was accompanying Sandra.
On a personal note, there were quite a few Facebook friends people that I was able to greet but whose names I could not recall. On a similar note, I rarely remember what I had for breakfast.
All in all, it was a very memorable evening and I hope that the owners of Sabores Restaurant continue a long lasting tradition.
The News As I See It: Reporters and celebrities attended the White House Correspondents Dinner last Saturday evening. It'll was a bit awkward when the reporters from CNN spent all night trying to find their table.
The political scene in Washington is one of few places I've seen that's more grasping and desperate than show business. Hollywood and politics are very different, of course. One puts out big-budget crap filled with explosions and the other one is Hollywood.
An old tour bus used by Willie Nelson is for sale on eBay for $36,000. That makes sense.... 6 grand for the bus and 30 grand for whatever you find in the seat cushions.
The Amazing Spiderman 2 opened last week. They say it's the best since the last "Amazing Spiderman 2."
George Clooney bought a beautiful diamond engagement ring. Over three years the ring slowly dissolves, at which point the bride knows she should leave George to make room for his next relationship.

Picture Of The Day: The beautiful Ileana (left) is also an accomplished artist and many of her works appear in various art museums. The lovely Sandra (right) is an accomplished dance artist. The content gent in the middle sings occasionally and from the look on his face, has just realized that he has no idea where he parked his car.....
Printable Things I Never Told You: 1) According to my neighbor's rooster, it's 5am now. Coincidentally, tomorrow we're having fried chicken for dinner. 2) My neighbor's wifi isn't working. I wonder if they are aware and are trying to fix it or should I go let them know? 3) My girlfriend's been having a problem with diarrhea. The doctor told her lemons will help. Maybe so, but as soon as she takes one out, it starts again. 4) Look, if you really need a Heimlich maneuver, just ask me nicely. Enough of this flapping your arms and making faces shit. 5) (Me): "In my defense, Your Honor, I only made comments about her yoga pants cause 'harassment' a lot to me" (Judge): "Bailiff, please hi-five the defendant.".....and that's five !
Today's Horoscope: Pisces - May 5th: Be on your toes because today is Cinco de Maio day. In English that means the fifth of May. I'm unsure of the significance but, just in case, tomorrow is Seis de Maio.
Word meanings are important so becareful what you say. My friend called his girlfriend "Gluteal Myalgia" because he thought she was too dumb to understand what it meant. Maybe not, she calls him "Microphallus"

The AREA 51 Retirement Home Bar And Grill: In 1912, Hellmann's mayonnaise was manufactured in England. In fact, the Titanic was carrying 12,000 jars of the condiment scheduled for delivery in Vera Cruz, Mexico, which was to be the next port of call for the great ship after its stop in New York.
This would have been the largest single shipment of mayonnaise ever delivered to Mexico . But as we know, the great ship did not make it to New York. The ship hit an iceberg and sank and the cargo was forever lost.
The people of Mexico, who were crazy about mayonnaise and were eagerly awaiting its delivery, were disconsolate at the loss. Their anguish was so great, that they declared a National Day of Mourning, which they still observe to this day.
The National Day of Mourning occurs each year on May 5th and is known, of course, as "Sinko De Mayo."
An elderly couple was attending church services when about halfway through, the old woman leans over and says to him, "I just silently passed gas, what do you think I should do?"
The old man leans over to her and replies, "Put a new battery in your hearing aid..."
The Hits Just Keep On Coming: My
A man was sitting at a bar when he noticed a woman with a particularly large diamond ring. As he admired the ring, the bartender came over and said, "That's the Glopman diamond. It's beautiful, but it comes with a curse."
The man asked, "What's the curse?" The bartender replied, "Mrs. Glopman."
The owner of a drugstore walks in to find a guy leaning heavily against a wall with an odd look on his face. The owner asks the clerk, "What's with that guy over there by the wall?"
The clerk says, "Well, he came in here at 7 am to get something for his cough. I couldn't find the cough syrup, so I gave him an entire bottle of laxatives."
The owner says, "You idiot! You can't treat a cough with laxatives!" The clerk says, "Oh yeah? Look at him! He's afraid to cough!"
That's it for today, my little tequila worms. Remember, my friends and readers, I'll always be here for you....unless we run out of beer and someone has some over there. Then I'll be over there for you.
More on Wednesday.
