This joke's from my mom. Gotta love it....

After retiring, I went to the Social Security office to apply for Social
Security. The woman behind the counter asked me for
my driver's license to verify my age. I looked in my
pockets and realized I had left my wallet at home.

I told the woman that I was very sorry, but I would have
to go home and come back later.

The woman said, 'Unbutton your shirt'.

So I opened my shirt revealing my curly silver hair. She
said, 'That silver hair on your chest is proof enough for me'
and she processed my Social Security application.

When I got home, I excitedly told my wife about my
experience at the Social Security office.

She said, 'You should have dropped your pants. You might
have gotten disability, too'

And then the fight started.....

Terrific Tuesday Tunes

You know, if you line up all of my "Terrific Tuesday Tunes" and look at them, you get a pretty good picture of the influences that make me, well... me! :D

Walking the dog today and this song literally popped into my head. Okay, as the kids would say, "RANDOM!"

Did my traditional YouTube search and found a Tiny Toons music video of the song. I love it!

What does that say about me? I have massive quantities of random trivia stuffed into my head: check. I love cartoons (Looney Tunes mostly, but Tiny Toons will do in a pinch): check. My brain does all kinds of weird things when I'm not looking: CHECK! :)

Anyway, enjoy today's toon... er, tune. Heh.

November 1st.

Walked into Wally World.

Looked at the leftover Halloween candy marked 50% off.

Started to hum with the Muzak, not realizing what the tune was, until I stopped and really listened....


Seriously, isn't that ILLEGAL or something? Holy Canoly, what the heck happened to Thanksgiving?

This is just BAD.

Terrific Tuesday Tunes

Now let's jump back several decades, get on our velvet bell bottoms and platform shoes, turn on the tv (using the KNOBS) and watch the Partridge Family! :)

I'm confused.

I was just looking at the little Traffic Feed list there on the right side of my blog. "Wow, lots of people reading my blog!" I thought. Then I noticed that a huge number of hits were coming from because of my post "Steve Urkel Lives With Me."


I mean, seriously? Are that many people in need of photos of Steve Urkel that they are checking out my site with its one little puny photo that was nicked off someone else's site???

How popular IS this guy more than ten years after his heyday, anyway?

I'm truly confused.

Happy Halloween!

Halloween was a little different this year.

Since Halloween fell on a Friday, and Friday's are Football, well, you see where this is leading.
DH took DS trick-or-treating, and I went to DD's game to videotape the band (because they always march in costume at Halloween time), and there was no one at home to hand out candy! That is the first time we've been "closed" for t-or-t'ers..... ever. :(
Anyway, without further ado, here are the kiddos...
First up, DS as a Mad Scientist:

People kept asking him where he got the wig. Little did they know that this is his own hair!
Lots of gel, teasing, hairspray and spray-on color, both white and blue, and voila! Einstein hair! I love how his whole outfit came out. He got alot of compliments.

Next up, DD as a cat:

It's really hard to see, as she was standing on the 50 yard line and I was up in the stands. :D
Last year, she was a soccer ref and wore a ref's uniform... and FROZE her derriere off! This year, she vowed she would be warmer, and chose an outfit that at least had long sleeves! So, she had a black turtleneck, black dress pants, a cute little tail with a bow on it and cat ears. Easy peasy lemon squeezy. And very cute!
I wish I could have gotten a better picture. Maybe she'll put it on for me again later so I can take some "do over" photos. :D
