Save the Earth from Godzilla vs Hedorah

As if life wasn't tough enough lately, I've found myself humming this little tune quite often. Thank you Creature Double Feature.

You know we never ever do nothin nice and easy.....

We always do it nice and rough........

It's the plumber. I've come to fix the sink!

Invariably if you had asked "Who is it?"in my childhood, and either my brother or I happened to be in the room. This would have been the answer followed by gales of laughter.

Good times!

I can't come in today... uterus fell out. Even worse I'm experiencing the dreaded "whites"

Still standing

"Faneuil Hall, Boston, c. 1903." Detroit Publishing glass negative. via:

Now more commonly called Faneuil hell by the locals. What started out as a great public rejuvenation project(the building had gone severely down hill for years) housing local artist shops and restaurants run by local chefs is now just one big mall offering the standard shops and the joy of walking on cobblestones. I worked here for a summer the first time I was laid off twenty two years ago. I am desperately hoping to avoid stooping to retail again, but then I remember eve retail isn't hiring in this down economy....

The past is never pretty

Many many years ago I drank, and I drank a lot! It made me fat, it made me mean and it made me loud. I decided to stop as I still wanted some people to like me, particularly the good looking and the well built.

As if the startled dear in the headlights look from strangers that I stiill get to this day weren't bad enough, (sorry folks) my good friend Joy has captured this stroll from pub to pub for posterity

Rugby Songs

"Into the ball room"? "Maggie May'? "The portions of a woman?" Volume 2?

Untamed Women!

We like our beer cold, our ribs sizzlin' and our women untamed!

Well we are happy to report that it finally rained round here last night! After such a long drawn out dry spell that truthfully I'd lost count and cannot remember if it's been two years or three years since I last experienced some rain.
Let's hope that a wet weather pattern will be settling in.....

Successful meat merchandising!

I think I may need to go back to school for some training, both career and dating wise.....

Just like Grandma used to say.....

So last night while working at the cafe, I used the expression "I'm all over it, like white on rice!" only to be asked to explain what that meant. That was fine until a little later when a patron dropped a fork and I announced company was coming, and again had to explain what THAT meant.

I'm starting to feel a little old around my co-workers.......

I'm not ashamed to admit...

that way back in the day i had a bit of a crush on Glenn Campbell. But, am I the only one to notice a certain similarity to a young Santa Claus as portrayed by Rankin/Bass?

And if she got married.....

Her name would be Mrs. Cissy!

Mrs Beasley

I'm still trying to figure it out....

Magic Door of Wishes and Dreams

Am I the only one who sees Teri Garr doing this, but wondering if she could play it any better?

Inquiring minds want to know......

Who was your "first" Centerfold?

For me it was, Sam Jones, star of "Flash Gordon" Way back round 1980/81 if there was any doubt in my pubescent mind as to which fork in the road my sexuality was taking, Mr. Jones layout did A LOT to determine where I stand now.

Alas, time and gravity being nobody's friends, I am not sure how I would feel if I saw Mr. jones in the nude today......

And your veil clashes with your eyes...

P.S. is his fly open?

So near, yet so far...

I know several people who would consider this look "cool" today.
