Eight Legs

Special Day for Scrooge

   I think I'm an introvert deep inside. I'm not comfortable getting attention. Ever since I was little, I never knew how to behave when my birthday would come around. My wife gets really frustrated figuring out what to give me. She's quite the opposite. She expects to be showered with never-ending presents the whole week of her birthday. What a team we make, huh?

   All throughout my birthday I was complaining that she was forcing me to "enjoy" eating out when all I really wanted was just to stay at home and enjoy a quiet celebration. I could see in her face that she was trying so hard to cheer me up. It was like Tigger trying to cheer up Eeyore (from Winnie the Pooh). "But I bought dinner tickets already!" she said. "How hard is it to call and cancel?" "No, we're going and that's final!" So I go along dragging my feet. We get to the Hollywood area early and walk along the pavements studded with celebrity names. She complains because she's wearing heels and we're walking for about half an hour. "I'm suffering here!" she complains. "Good! I want to share my suffering!" We both laugh. She surprised me with tickets to "Beautiful" (the Broadway play about the life of Carole King). So do you think the sea of white haired seniors nodding to the beat of the 70s songs changed my mood? Yup! It certainly did! By the end of the evening I was humming the old favorites and I wanted to protect this special woman from the crowd leaving the theater. My wife pulled off a miracle. She turned Mr. Scrooge into a believer. The day turned out to be a good day after all. The play was great but knowing that someone loves me enough to "suffer" with me --- now that's special. TGIF folks! If you've got a partner who is willing to suffer with you, consider it a blessing!

Eight Legs
Contributed by Chuck of Whittier, CA

A fellow is driving down the road and a chicken with eight legs runs past him like he was standing still. The guy sees a farmer so he stops the car and gets out.

"Did you see that chicken with eight legs run by?"

He says "Yup, those are my chickens. You know how everybody always wants a chicken leg? Well, I developed this breed with eight legs."

"Wow! That's sensational! How do they taste?"

The farmer says, "I don't know, we've never been able to catch one."

Parallel Parking Assistance

So you return to your parked car and you're sandwiched between 2 cars who give you little room to maneuver out. Well thank God for helpful strangers ... right? Just watch!

Nostalgia: Summer Breeze

Summer Breeze

I remember practicing this song with my High School buddy, Nani and we were fascinated with that mandolin sound. We barely reach those notes while I play some cheap guitar. But, more importantly, we needed that mandolin sound. Next time we meet, Nani has this ukulele and I'm really excited. And then he tells me he doesn't know how to play it --- another dream dashed away because he never learned to play that ukulele.

High Jumper

This bulky body is very deceptive for a man who can jump like this. I wonder how he does playing basketball.

Ever wonder how some countries are so insanely good at the Olympics? There's a simple answer --- they start them out young.

This video is definitely not for the macho men out there. I almost didn't post this. I mean ... what was I thinking.

Listen to this call. This woman is dead serious about her Deer Crossing sign complaint. If she's voting in the elections, be sure to vote the other way.

TGIF people! Have a great 4th of July weekend!
