THE CLOCK IS TICKING AND I AM TYPING
« on: May 06, 2007, 12:04:49 AM »

Well, you've read the notes, the notes were typed whilst the clock ticked, and now it is time for you to post until the cows come home - the clock is ticking and the cows are mooing and never the Mark Twain shall meet.

And the word of the day is: BARRATRY!

Something we all know about.

Thanks to all H/Ks for your slapstick suggestions yesterday.  You have added to my "must see" list!

DR FJL - thank you for the theatre report. Glad you enjoyed, and that you had a chance to catch up with the author and star.

DR JoseSPiano - thanks for the all the lovely photos.
The Great Disappearing Pollini...is that like The Flying Wallendas?

Ye Olde Tag Sale is concluded, and was a great success.  But the effort left me too tired to attend the Derby Party which had been on my calendar.

After a nap, I watched Marnie, which I had never seen.  Apart from the bad matte job, I enjoyed it very much.  And that score!

Well, off to walk the dog, and then...much singing.

Smooches, kids!

Casey would waltz
With a strawberry blonde,
Ignoring the BARRATRY from the orchestra
That was demanding they pay their wages,
Rather than taking those demands to the nightclub
Which was their rightful employers.

I am up far too early this morning.

By necessity.

I am scheduled to start work at seven-fifteen AM, which I am taking as a hint that I may be the first of the checkers to assist our customers in the use of our new self-checking machines.

It is daunting, to say the least.

But, since it is so early in the morning that I'll be starting, we shouldn't have too many customers at first.

Most of those will be purchasing newspapers or donuts, or both.

The madness of larger purchases will come later.

Sunday morning greetings!  About an hour ago I saw DH Richard off on his quarterly trip to Wisconsin's Nashotah House.  On his next trip (late July/early August), he'll have a traveling companion - Moi!

Last evening DS Rob and my mother-in-law accompanied Richard to Evening Prayer in Cincinnati, where he was confirmed into the Anglican Province of America.  Afterwards we and 6 others went to a lovely dinner at The National Exemplar in The Mariemont Inn.

My eyes are playing tricks on me.  BK mentioned Ye Olde Garage in the notes, and I thought he was typing Ye Olde George, so i did a double-take.

Good morning!  The storms didn't hit here last night, lots of thunder lightning and rain, but no bad stuff, lol.  I am very glad I now live at the top of the hill, so I'm not getting flooded out every time we get a couple inches of rain

Forecast for today...thunderstorms

Does anyone know about the new warnings from the weather service? Yesterday the weather channel kept saying we are in a PDS - Particularly Dangerous Situation.  I'm not sure if that is new NOAA speak or just Weather Channel speak

DR Matt,
I don't follow horse racing either, but I do watch the Derby. It was nice to see the horse that was second to last for most of the race win the race. I can't remember his name but I cheered for him.   I was saying "GO HORSE!"  Guess i was cheering for all of them

OH I solved the French taking over my spell checker mystery.  Apparently when you install Office 2007, it deletes all languages but French on your Outlook Express Spell Checker.   I found a download linked from the Microsoft site that fixed it right up.

Me too, but there's still a chance today. The front isn't moving.  We are WAY above average for rainfall.  I'm a bit afraid to check my basement, but it's been dry so far, so I better go look

DR Sandra - I have ridden on busses in Iowa.   When I was in college I used to ride every day in Iowa City, that was a good system.  I haven't ridden the bus in Sioux City, but it looks pretty good and it seems to have a rep for being on time.  

Well, Friday we did notice a bus going the opposite way the route runs near my house, but there may have been a reason for that who knows

One of my favorite bus jokes was on I LOVE LUCY.  Lucy and Ricky go to the train station to pick up Lucy's mother, and she never shows up.  They are frantic and return home hours later to find her at their apartment.  Mrs. Magillicuddy's explanation is outrageous, of course....but Lucy interrupts her.

Lucy:  All right...all right.  But mother how did you get here?

Mrs. Magillicuddy:  I took a bus and the driver let me off right at your front door.

Lucy:  But, mother, the bus doesn't come down our street.

Mrs. Magillicuddy:  THAT'S what the bus driver tried to tell me!

And DR ELMORE's post from yesterday reminded me of

THE FULLER BRUSH GIRL with Miss Lucille Ball!

Laurel & Hardy's BIG BUSINESS is also a fine slapstick comedy.

And the link we had a few weeks ago to a Three Stooges Pie Fight was pretty funny....

"Somebody give ME a pie!"   Whap!!
