But no. Once again evil has risen like a phoenix and the dreams will start again.
The Wardrobe Malfunction is back in the news and I must relive the horror once again.
Pardon me - I must take a breath and relax.
The courts have overturned the $550,000 fine imposed by the FCC and families and children across the nation are the losers. I can still see Janet Jackson's bejeweled right breast, her leather bustier in tatters. Like a train wreak I can not stop staring. Justin Timberlake looking shocked and repulsed at the vivid scene in front of him is unbelieving. Who knew this could ever happen on live TV.
How can I go on. I MUST go on.
Go to my happy place.
Grinders Island Brewery
Striving for Mediocrity
If any of you artists out there are looking for a doodle subject, at SOME point I'm going to need a label for the brew. Just thought I'd toss that one out to see what sticks. If I have to do it myself you don't know WHAT is going to happen.
This morning I came up with a new name for an as yet to be brewed beer.
John DillinAle. Complex yet soft and slightly sweet but still has a kick!
Seventy-Four years ago today John Dillinger was shot to death outside Chicago's Biograph Theater by John Michael Bolger . . . .wait . . .that's not exactly right.
Members of the "John Dillinger Died for You Society" traditionally gather at the Biograph Theater on the anniversary of Dillinger's death and retrace his last walk to the alley where he died, following a bagpiper playing "Amazing Grace".
Anyway - I updated Wikipedia which had it wrong by saying filming STARTED in Crown Point! HA!! Here is the updated Wiki version.
Director Michael Mann's current project Public Enemies - an adaptation of Bryan Burrough's book Public Enemies: America's Greatest Crime Wave and the Birth of the FBI, 1933-43 - features Johnny Depp as John Dillinger and Christian Bale as FBI agent Melvin Purvis. Filming began in Columbus Wisconsin and included locations in Oshkosh, Milwaukee, Madison, Manitowish Waters, Beaver Dam, and Darlington, Wisconsin, Crown Point, Indiana and Chicago, Illinois.
That's better - Columbus gets top billing for being first - NOT Crown Point.
And in Old Cars Weekly
Who is that striking gray glob pictured in the middle column bottom photo on the left. What? is that ME?? They just can not take a bad photo of me can they!! Just look at that friendly smile!
WOW - this morning I was in pain.
I was sleeping like a log and all of a sudden I an wreathing in intense pain. I'm grabbing my calf and I can feel a baseball size knot - worst pain I have had in a long time. Once I'm able to get out of my fetal position I fall back to sleep and dream I'm checking into the hospital but the check in person is on a tiny TV and it is so loud I can not hear her.
The final question to get admitted is I must read her lips! WTF kind of hospital is this anyway!!!
Finally I'm in a wheel chair and I don't even get a room to myself and THEN the nurse says I have to pay for this visit.!!!! I guess insurance does not cover cramps!
I wake up and my right leg IS STILL CRAMPED!! I can barely put weight on it.
I have the dreaded Nocturnal leg cramp.
Upon further review I find something very scary - read on.
The precise cause of these cramps is unclear. Potential contributing factors are believed to include dehydration, low levels of certain minerals (magnesium, potassium, calcium, and sodium), and the reduced blood flow through the muscles attendant in prolonged sitting or lying down. Less common causes include more serious conditions or the use of drugs.
But then I read this!!
Nocturnal leg cramps (almost exclusively calf cramps) are considered to be 'normal' during the late stages of pregnancy.
OH NO!!!!! I'm too old to have children.
I have to go now - I have to go to Walgreen's to get a pregnancy test.
On a side note -take a look at Angel's Scrappin' paragraph on a Wisconsin map blunder - interesting
