To love is to risk not being loved in return...

To hope is to risk pain.....

To try is to risk failure...

but risk must be taken because the greatest hazard in life is to risk nothing.

Thought for the day!!!

It is not the size of your banana that is important..........

It is the quality of your A-peel !
And now on to something really, really important!
The Bard of Cleveland, monsieur Le Ran-dal, took ever so slight umbrage from my previous posting of a Naked-Truth VP Cheney, and posed the question;

"Did the internets run out of scantily-clad ladies?"

Well, golly-gee&buttered bisquits!

I am sure that the esteemed Poem Peruser knows said pages where such can be viewed overly well and it would not be my place to suggest new ones to him, but he really is a swell guy, and it is thursday, which is awfully close to friday which is right next to saturday which is a great day to have a beer SO.... here is my thursday salute to Randal and scantily-clad women who drink beer!

okee doke

all-rightee. The shock-treatment therapy seems like it worked. My membership in the Taliban has been rejected, and I didn't win $200 million in the lottery.... so I came back to the blogs.....where low and behold I been tagged wit a couple of dem Meme thingees by Nunly and Libs..... and Libs hit me with a book-thingee which is easier, cause my life is a open book, the Oshkosh Police have booked me, my Ex threw the book at me...etc&so forth&such

1. Name a few of your favorite books
"All the King's Men" - Robert Penn Warren. One of the tastiest reads ever. Three or four times is insufficient.
"A Confederacy of Dunces" - John Kennedy Toole. Funny on top of Funny wrapped in Ethos and topped with Pathos. Who needs ketchup when something is this funny.?
"Paul Prudhomme's Louisiana Cookbook"- (ok. I am into the South right now. And sometimes books are meant to be devoured. Just Saying.

6. What genre do you dislike?
Self-help books. I tried to read one about masturbation and boy&howdy was that a mess!!!

2. Is there an author that you don't like, yet so many people seem to love?

Yeah, God! He really lost me with all the 'begats' and 'thou shalt nots'.

4. Where do you buy your books?

Buy? C'mon! Shoplift! I learned how to do it from a self-help book.

5. What genre do you read the most?
Fiction. Novels, short stories. Non-fiction. History. I am still very embroiled in reading about the Civil War. I can't wait to find out who wins!

7. Is there a book that changed your life?

I think it was 'Moby Dick' unabridged. My older brother whacked me in the face with it. Very hard. Black eye and two stitches.

8. Have you you ever met an author? What author would you like to meet?

I used to book guest speakers at the University. I got to meet Margaret Mead, Buckminster Fuller, P.J. O'Rourke and Ken Kesy. Ken was cool. I got very drunk with Ken Kesey. At the time he favored tequila.

9. Name a book to film adaptation that you really like.

I have two........
Miriam and...


They break me up daily. I'll try the Nunly next.

How can you miss me Iffeen I didn't go away?

Sometimes the lights all shinin on me;
Other times I can barely see.
Lately it occurs to me what a long, strange trip its been.
Truckin, Im a goin home.
whoa whoa baby, back where I belong,
Back home, sit down and patch my bones, and get back truckin on.
Hey now get back truckin home
