Rocking Friday Night With Everett Strachan and CryWolf
I was fortunate to be in the company of Luly, Paul and friends for a great night at Woody's Tavern in Miami Springs on Friday. The entertainment was provided by my friends Everett and Crywolf. I was able to bribe the band and sit in for a song as well.
The rains threatened us all night but the team of Cosmos and Scotch fought back gallantly and toward the end of the night, we didn't care if we got wet, anyway.
Although I'm always in touch with my brother Everett, it had been too long since I had performed with him and perform we did! Both Everett and I ad-lib well and we just took a song and laid in down to the apparent delight of the crowd. Of course, it's easy to sound good with a great band like Crywolf.
The beautiful Luly was really nice to take the many pictures shown on today's post and, as usual, they all came out well. With me, after a few scotches, I'm fortunate to even remember I have a phone, much less take pictures.
Needless to say our group had a lot of fun and Everett and CryWolf were outstanding. Aside from their musical ability, outstanding harmony and vocals, the mark of a good group is to play songs that people want to hear and dance to....and that's exactly what they did!
As for me, I enjoyed myself immensely! The company was great, the music was fantastic and my sweet waitress Jenn took good of me. For the Miami locals, don't miss a chance to hear Everett Strachan and CryWolf.
The News As I See It: There are reports that Justin Bieber's next album will be released in November. As usual, Justin is expected to collaborate with a number of other artists including Skrillex, Diplo, Flipcoin, 2 Chainz, Lowdown and Rihanna. And yes, I made two of those names up.

Printable Things I Never Told You: 1) Dandelions are just like regular lions, except they wear ascots and lisp. 2) So many Jehovah's Witnesses and yet not one will admit to seeing the accident. 3) There are no absolutes in this world.....except vodka. 4) My friend's daughter asked me what language they speak in England. This would have been cute if she wasn't 20 and in college. 5) Do a little dance, make a little love, pay child support.....and that's five !
Today's Horoscope: Leo - August 17th: The stars are pretty much describing a situation where a self-prescribed course of celibacy may help you regain the confidence that is lacking in your love life.

The AREA 51 Retirement Home Bar And Grill: An older man and his wife were sitting at a table at their high school reunion, and the man kept staring at a drunken lady swigging her drink as she sat alone at a nearby table.
His wife asked, "Do you know her?" He sighed, "Yes, she's my old girlfriend. I understand she took to drinking right after we split up those many years ago, and I hear she hasn't been sober since."
His wife replied, "Who would think a person could go on celebrating that long?"
A woman who had been married for several years was growing more and more frustrated at her husband's lack of interest in sex. She wondered about ways to add some pizzazz to their sexual relationship and finally decided to purchase some crotchless underwear she had seen in a novelty shop.
One evening when she was feeling particularly desirous and he was, as usual, watching television, she took a shower, freshened up, and donned her crotchless undies and a slinky negligee. She then strolled between her husband and the television and suggestively tossed one leg up on his chair arm.
She purred, "Want some of this?" Her husband looked down and replied, "Are you kidding? Look what it did to those panties!"
The Hits Just Keep On Coming: An 85-year-old man was requested by his doctor for a sperm count as part of his physical exam. The doctor gave the man a jar and said, "Take this jar home and bring back a semen sample tomorrow."
The next day the 85-year-old man reappeared at the doctor's office and gave him the jar, which was as clean and empty as on the previous day.
The doctor asked, what happened and the man explained. "Well, doc, it's like this. First I tried with my right hand, but nothing. Then I tried with my left hand, still nothing. Then I asked my wife for help. We even called up the lady next door and she tried too, but still nothing."
The doctor was shocked. He asked, "You asked your neighbor?" The old man replied, "Yep, none of us could get the damned jar open."
A group of Kentucky second, third, and fourth graders, accompanied by two female teachers, went on a field trip to Churchill Downs, the famous Louisville race track, to see and learn about thoroughbred horses.
When it was time to take the children to the bathroom, it was decided that the girls would go with one teacher and the boys would go with the other. The teacher assigned to the boys was waiting outside the men's room when one of the boys came out and told her that none of them could reach the urinal.
Having no choice, she went inside, helped the boys with their pants and began hoisting the boys up, one by one, holding onto their "wee-wees" to direct the flow away from their clothes.
As she lifted one, she couldn't help but notice that he was unusually well endowed. Trying not to show that she was staring, the teacher said, "You must be in the fourth grade." The boy replied, "No, ma'am, I'm riding Silver Arrow in the seventh race today."
That's it for today, my little mushrooms. Remember, bragging about how much you receive in alimony only demonstrates how much someone was willing to pay to get rid of you.
