Damn, Jim. This just popped into my head, and I thought about you.

I remembered you calling me on Thanksgiving, a couple, maybe three years ago. I think that I was at some podunk diner bringing a truck driver home after dropping his semi off at a repair shop in Ft. Recovery, Ohio.

I was surprised, nobody ever calls me on holidays. It meant a lot to me hearing from a friend.

My passenger got his wife a couple of overly expensive pies from the little diner in the middle of nowhere. I got him home safely and went home.

I've been so many places, it might've been a couple of other guys. Who knows?

Whatever, my mind is a funny, if not tragic place.

Thanks.

That's a great tune. Great message with a great twist at the end.

I like that old-timey depression era stuff...

Don't miss the noose at ~8:34, Bubba! Bonus plan, Dakkie.

Groucho Marx! Maltese Falcons! James Cagney! Oscars! Clark Gable! Humphery Bogart! Gunshots! Dreamy.

But the hats, I'd give my left nut, if I had one, for the hats!

I'll stick with my commie ushanka until the old granny crochets my pink pussy hat, if she doesn't die.

Probably, but I've gotta be a special kind of depressed to get in the mood to post music videos.

Day ain't over, and I haven't looked at the news much yet.

Alive and Kicking !

We were working a black concert on north side at Rosemont. The show was in the round. They had us all strung out to hold back the crowd.

It was Sinbad as the headliner. A black woman was the opening act but I do not recall her name.

When she came off stage, she had a gold chain she handed to one of the Roadies. He put it on a table near the stage stairs.

A black girl slipped in there and grabbed the chain. Someone saw her and they searched her and couldn't find it. So they called for Verna the black girl on the crew.

As soon as the black girl saw Verna the chain magically appeared.

She had it in a secret place. ROTFLMAO!

I went home with a waitress, the way I always do...

How was I to know, she was with the Russians too?

I guess my older sister is pretty banged up. Broken pelvis, head split open, etc. Don't know much more.

Dad, get me out of this.

Going to start praying right now.

I am sooo sorry. It happens so fast. People just don't realize... My "baby" who was in the van when we had our accident many years, was t-boned again 4 years ago. Pelvis broken in 4 places, brain bleed, broken ribs, collapsed lung. It was grueling but she survived, still with pain. But she was young. I truly hope and pray God will be gracious with your sister.

I knew an old boy who was in Navy during WW II. He was in UDT. He told me one time he got drunk on Vanilla extract in South Pacific. He would never eat vanilla ice cream. LOL

That's hardcore. I just looked at my bottle, apparently it's 41% alcohol (82 proof).

Only people that free base coke.

I had a female room mate who was doing that. I told her if she brought that pipe back into the house I would break it and sink it in the pond out back.

She brought it back in and I did what I said I would. ;)

only john wayne, clint eastwood, and robert redford. 4 or 5 others i recognize but couldn't tell you their names. i probably should know, but i was never a big movie goer, nor was i a big fan of some of those tv shows. i also am not good on names.
