420 JT Irregulars Party

A great time was had by one and all today at the JT Irregulars Party.  I want to thank whoever took the picture of me in the urinal.  I'm usually not that photogenic.

Mary attended her first JTI gathering.  She's a wonderful person with a definitely irregular sense of humor.  It was a pleasure meeting her.  She's staying in town til Tuesday, so she still has a chance to visit Kewpees.

TenderHeartBear and drewzepmeister were there, as were lizardmom and SER.  I don't know what happened to Madame Zoltar, but she missed another one.  Ever notice how you never see the Sheriff and Mme. Z posting at the same time?  Hmm.

I didn't have any food, but the others did and it looked good.  We had a great time getting snarky about the JTIs who didn't make it.  Some other, private pictures were shot.  And SER got a parking ticket for an expired meter.  What a party!

None of that Sissy Cra*p

Are you tired of those sissy 'friendship' poems that always sound good, but never actually come close to reality?

Well, here is a series of promises that actually speak of true friendship.

You will see no cutesy little smiley faces on this card- Just the stone cold truth of our great friendship.

1. When you are sad --I will jump on the person who made you sad like a spider monkey jacked up on Mountain Dew!!!!! !!!!!!!!!!!!!

2. When you are blue -- I will try to dislodge whatever is choking you.

3. When you smile -- I will know you are plotting something that I must be involved in.

4. When you're scared -- we will high tail it out of there, together.

5. When you are worried -- I will tell you horrible stories about how much worse it could be until you quit whining ... ya big baby!!!!

6. When you are confused -- I will speak slowly and use little words.

7. When you are sick --Stay away from me until you are well again. I don't want whatever you have, but I care.

8 . When you fall -- I'll pick you up and dust you off.

9. This is my oath...I pledge it to the end. 'Why?' you may ask -- because you are my FRIEND!

Friendship is like peeing your pants, everyone can see it, but only you can feel the true warmth

"The Crazy Nastyass Honey Badger (original narration by Randall)"



One day, there was a catastrophic event that caused all living creatures on Earth to die. To sort things out, everyone went to heaven.

God came and said, "I want the men to form two lines. One line for the men who ruled their women on Earth and the other line for the men who were ruled by their women. Also, I want all the women to go with St. Peter." With that said and done, the next time God looked, the women were gone and there were two lines.

The line of men who were ruled by their women was 1,000 miles long, and in the line of men who ruled their women, there was only one man. God became angry and said, "You men should be ashamed of yourselves. I created you in my image and you were all whipped by your mates. Look at the only one of my sons who stood up and made me proud. Learn from him! Tell them, my son, how did you manage to be the only one in this line?"

The man replied, "I don't know, my wife told me to stand here."

"Russian man farting into fire"

I know it's crude, but I still think it's funny.

Dear Madame Zoltar

Hello, my soggy friends!  How are you?  As we all know, spring is not cooperating with us this year.  Or is it winter that isn’t cooperating?  Whichever, the weather’s been lousy for weeks.  Cabin fever is raging throughout the Midwest.  The only antidote is sunshine. We need it badly.

The bombings at the Boston Marathon were horrible.  It is difficult to accept that we live in such times.  Tragedy after tragedy strikes, all sorts of commotion is raised, and then it starts out all over again.  I am tired of the bombings, the killings, the shootings, all of it.  I wish I had the power to prepare a worldwide peace potion.  Just put a drop in the atmosphere and all conflicts end.  Dream on, Madame Zoltar, dream on. 

I had to cluck my tongue when I saw the pictures in Mr. OrbsCorbs’ blog below that came from “Racine in Ruins,”  A member of the Ethics Commission can’t keep his eyes open during a recent meeting concerning complaints about Mr. Mayor Dickert and various other staff.  Unfortunately, this sort of thing is all too common in Mr. Mayor’s administration.  They do whatever they want whenever they want.  They have adopted an antagonistic stance toward residents.  They consider us the enemy.  They have even armed themselves, while squelching our right to do the same.  Guns and lies. Tsk, tsk, Mr. Mayor.

So much negativity locally and nationally.  It seems like everyone is angry and hollering at each other.  Here’s how a class act deals with it:

Don’t be too depressed by events in Boston, or elsewhere.  While savagery was displayed by the bomber(s), as many people ran toward the blasts as away from them.  They ran to help other human beings who were hurting, regardless of gender, race, politics, faith, or anything else.  They ran toward the injured because they realize that we are all in this together.  The monsters that employ terrorism cannot destroy that. 

Thank you, my dears, for reading my blog today.  I love it when you visit.  You are the cream in my coffee.

Coffee, tea, or me?

Have a wonderful week, my sweets.  Be careful, but don’t be paranoid.  Sooner or later we have to get some weather to enjoy.  Demivierge!

"Beware bogus Boston Marathon charity websites"

"NEW YORK (CNNMoney) As Americans rush to donate to the victims of Monday's Boston Marathon
bombing, watchdog groups are warning of potential online scammers already looking to profit from the tragedy. 

"Within hours of the bombing, dozens of website domain names referencing the bombing were registered, including, and

"It's too early to know what websites like these will be used for, yet nonprofit experts say that charity fraud is often perpetrated in the days and weeks after tragedy hits and are warning consumers to be on guard."

How Bad The Flood Is Around Here Pt 2

I finally finished the investigating around town just in time to pick Drew up from work. I went down a road by Spring Street that I was not suppose to go down. I am glad I did go down there because the water was just about to the street. I will show you in a picture what I am talking about.

This is Root River South of Spring Street. 

Parking lot at the park by Spring Street.

This is Root River North of Spring Street the road I was not suppose to by on. 

Trout Pond on 4 Mile Road. 

This is the Root River by Northwestern Ave. 

This is the Root River by Northwestern Ave. 

This is the Fox River in Waterford on the way to pick my daughter up from college Friday. 

Why not I hope the pictures help you out knowing that the water has not come over the sides of the river. When I went out the second time Harley was in the car with me. She decided to sneak out the door when I opened it and ran up the stairs. 

I hope everyone enjoys the pictures I had fun going around town taking them to share with everyone.

Useless Information

Did you know:

The timeless classic “You’ve Lost That Lovin’ Feelin” by the Righteous Brothers and produced by Phil Spector was originally 4:03 minutes long.
At that time radio station only wanted to play records approximately 3 minutes long so Phil Spector lied when they printed the 45rpm labels and listed the song as 3:03 minutes
