Chuckles the clown

" A little song, a little dance, a little seltzer down your pants"
Quote from Chuckles the clown of the Mary Tyler Moore Show fame.

His Obit:
The tragic death of Chuckles the clown crushed by an elephant while he was wearing a giant peanut suit as master of ceremonies of a parade.

Immortalizing a clown that never existed. I love it.
Possibly the best MTM show ever. The funeral scene where she gets the giggles is a classic.

(Found this is the ole drafts file, don't know where i was going with it (but what else is new). - i know my cousin & I were having a laugh about it last yr. before L's Bar Mitzvah - when we thought we might get a case of the giggles if a certain family member coughed throughout the ceremony - unfortunately/but luckily she didn't make it because i just know we wouldn't have been able to contain ourselves)


This weeks Theme: PINK

Remembered yesterday morning that i didn't even know what this weeks theme was- not good, i could've been on the lookout.

So the first shot is of some beach roses down the cape last summer.

The second of pink geraniums last year on my old grey deck.

The last one is a dog fence flag that i put in my garden in hopes of keeping the dog out - it worked.

Joke Friday


A man and his wife were awakened at 3:00 am by a loud pounding on the door. The man gets up and goes to the door where a drunken stranger, standing in the pouring rain, is asking for a push.

"Not a chance," says the husband, "it is 3:00 in the morning!" He slams the door and returns to bed.

"Who was that?" asked his wife.

"Just some drunk guy asking for a push," he answers.

"Did you help him?" she asks.

"No, I did not, it is 3:00 in the morning and it is pouring rain out there!"

"Well, you have a short memory," says his wife. "Can't you remember about three months ago when we broke down, and those two guys helped us? I think you should help him, and you should be ashamed of yourself!"

The man does as he is told, gets dressed, and goes out into the pounding rain.

He calls out into the dark, "Hello, are you still there?"

"Yes," comes back the answer.

"Do you still need a push?" calls out the husband.

"Yes, please!" comes the reply from the dark.

"Where are you?" asks the husband.

"Over here on the swing," replied the drunk

(Thanks Suzanne!)


The Boston Redsox are once again the American League Champions!!!!!!! GO SOX!!!!!!!

I tried for about 10 minutes to find a picture of Papelbon doin his Riverdance victory dance but to no avail. I am too dog tired from staying up last nite. I had to drive my son to school late and dragged myself into work. I dont' think i was really awake til after lunch.


A phrase started years ago, by a good friend - we were the best little timewasters in the world (I would drop by for coffee in the morning, then before you knew it we'd be having lunch, next we'd decide to go downtown to this little coffee shop where they had the best chocolate cake in the world). The problem being is that i won that title as she has gone on to become a published writer.
And now along comes the internet - a bright and shiny new big timewaster or creative outlet depending on how you look at it.
I see people giving it up all the time - recognizing their addiction? need to do something real? "If it weren't for the Internet, I wouldn't have any friends at all". not true but as you get older how do you meet people (not on bar stools anymore) and the friends you do have, you never actually see cause everyone is too damn busy . At best you talk to them on the phone - another one of my personal favorite little timewasters cause it makes doing those mundane, boring chores more bearable. so where was i going with this? i dunno, just wastin s'more time, i suppose.


I just joined Photo hunter and this weeks prompt was Practical. I thought it was practical to put my new TV on this beautiful old chest and just drill a couple of holes in the back for all the wires. It was also nicer than any of the TV stands that I brought home and tried first. Found this at a furniture consignment store.

How many members of the Bush administration does it take to replace a

The answer is 10.

1. One to deny that a lightbulb needs to be changed;
2. One to attack the patriotism of anyone who says the lightbulb needs
to be changed;
3. One to blame Clinton for burning out the lightbulb;
4. One to tell the nations of the world that they either favor changing
the lightbulb or support darkness;
5. One to give a billion dollar no-bid contract to Halliburton for the
new lightbulb;
6. One to arrange a photograph of Bush, dressed as a janitor, standing
on a step ladder under the banner "Lightbulb Change Accomplished";
7. One administration insider to resign and write a book documenting in
detail how Bush was literally "in the dark";
8. One to viciously smear #7;
9. One surrogate to campaign on TV and at rallies on how George Bush has
had a strong lightbulb-changing policy all along;
10. And finally, one to confuse Americans about the difference between
screwing a lightbulb and screwing the country.


Look at that face

Bye Bye love, bye bye sweet embrace, hello emptiness

i absolutely hate the end of summer.

Subject: pastor and his donkey
The pastor entered his donkey in a race and it won.
The pastor was so pleased with the donkey that he entered in another race and it won again.
The local paper read:
The Bishop was so upset with this kind of publicity that he ordered the pastor not to enter the donkey in any more races.
The next day the local paper headline read:
This was too much for the Bishop, so he ordered the pastor to get rid of the donkey. The pastor decided to give it to a nun in a nearby convent. The local paper, hearing of the news, Posted the following headline:
The Bishop fainted. He informed the nun that she would have to get rid of the donkey so she sold it to a farmer for $10. The next day the headlines read:
This was too much for the Bishop, so he ordered the nun to buy back the donkey and lead it to the high plains where it could run free. The next day the headlines read:
Alas ... The Bishop was buried the next day.
MORAL OF THE STORY??? Being concerned about public opinion can bring you much grief and misery and even shorten your life. So, be yourself and enjoy life.
Stop worrying about everyone else's ass and you'll live longer.
