Ok. It has been a busy weekend here on the shores of Lake Woe-innebago. Biked to the airshow and saw the F-22 Raptor ... our defense $$ at work....somewhere around $150 million a piece......

.... I could go on about the implications of military spending &shit..... but when one this thing flies over you head at about 500 ft..... gees, it IS STARWARS!!! & shit.... Mega Wowsers....


....and I am so glad everyone like McPhee.....


No, Not Katherine McPhee.....(gratuitous cheesecake ala Randal)





ARCHIE MCPHEE......









A company that makes really cool ridiculous things....... which, outside of American Politics, are things Americans really need, love and desire.









I checked the catalog...again..... and found the perfect gift for Nunly..... but if I bought one.....I would keep it for myself. Too bad, kiddo.





Deluxe Jesus Action Figure

There is no action figure more deserving of a deluxe edition than the Son of God. This 5-1/4" tall, hard vinyl figure comes with eight amazing plastic accessories: five loaves of bread, two fish and a jug for turning water into wine (not guaranteed to work for real). Also features "glow-in-the-dark miracle hands


And then I biked around some more.
Got a phone call from Bubba.....he was lost somewhere north of Green Bay and called for directions...... the kid can get lost on his way from his bedroom to the bathroom.
Miriam is still working hard.

I thought I would write someting nice today.... even try inspiring or some such stuff. Just couldn't do it. Zilch. Empty. Nada.

No ideas. Just hung out with Sinister Sara Dae and Billy Lang.

Just have no inspiration.....so....


When all else fails...............................get a beer.

Love&HUGS and such to all.

Beer works for me. In fact, it's so inspiring that I want a jesus doll with glow in the dark hands!

Dude, I thought you were gone for the weekend. That catalog is something special alright. Man, I really need a Jesus with glow in the dark hands just like dcup says. But I really gotta have that jug that turns water into wine!!!

Jesus, Mary, and Joseph...the things you Midwesterners find in your danged catalogs. I would have just went straight for the beer after watching those F-22s go swoooooosh!

Randal Graves said...

Now that was some delicious cheesecake. You're my hero. My kids always ask me what I want for xmas and I tell them nothing. Not this year! McPhee rules!

Or maybe an F-22. Well no, a Harrier would be better since I can just plop it on the street.

Mary Ellen said...

You kept the Jesus to yourself? Sheesh, how un-Christian of you!

Nothing says fun like glow in the dark magical hands...every guy should have them.

I'll be happy to take this gift instead...

I gotzta be brief..... busted the screen on my lap-top..... fucked up my right ankle (again!....goddam tendons... I thought I broke it... negative xrays...) So I got me some crutches and a few percodans - really prefer beer. I'll be back....need another ice pack.

I would like something with glow in the dark hands. Is that too much information?

Were you blogging while bike riding again? You must have some great wifi up there in Wisconsington.. and hopefully, some good doctors too. Take care of yourself and plastic Jesus can keep his glowing hands to hisself. I prefer the Buddha's enigmatic smile.

I prefer percodans to beer. Only problem is that "they" only give you percodans when you're in a whole hell of a lot of pain. The only benefit is that after the major aspect of the pain subsides, there's always a handful of percodans left over. After that it's back to the salt mills (yeah, I know, that is a dated phrase), and what pain you have left you just have to deal with and no more percodans. At that point, all that's left is beer.

You best be careful old man, if you get TOO messed up, you'll be pumped full of TOO many painkillers. Then how will you be able to drink beer? I'm not sure they allow IVs full of hops.

okjimm said...

One must be VERY Careful biking....some automobiles and their drivers have a tendency to ignore you and turn right in front of you.....assholes.

So the ankle looks a mini-grapefruit. Playing football when I was younger had the effect of turning my right ankle tendons into something resembling pulled taffy. I will be better in a few weeks.

Randal.... I have an aversion to painkillers. They reduce my mind to oatmeal.... and it was never a long journey in the first place.

Beer is a much better painkiller and much more flavorful.

DCup said...

Yikes! I hope you're feeling better soon. More beer for okjimm!

Liberality said...

Hope your ankle gets better dude. No beer with the painkillers though. That's for later.

Freida Bee said...

Ok Jimm, I'm sorry you got hurt.

I think Archie McPhee (Katherine's dad, right?) has a thing for nuns!

I just hope they sell excessive amounts of extra fish and loaves, refills if you will. I'm just sayin'.
