Yvonne Osborne said...

Good one, G-Man! But methinks we'll never really know all that story. Now we have our own oil spill over towards Kalamazoo. Ain't that the pits? Hopefully they can keep it out of the lake (along with those nasty Asian Carp!). Mine is up.
Happy weekend to you.

Isn't it always the same, you try and get a little sugar time and the bosses blame you, when it's them that hogs the candy bars.

Just a fun 55 today!

If only it was that simple. At least we'd know what to blame. ;)

I've been a bit nostalgic this week.

I can't wait to read some 55's today! Highlight of Friday & a great way to start the weekend!

Here is mine for the day!

the walking man said...

That is the best explanation given yet for that particular disaster.

A Daft Scots Lass said...

Nice 55...Hee hee

Enjoy mine.

5thsister said...

Love it G-Man. Seriously though, I just heard on a news program that there was no leak, initially, as BP was working to extinguish the fire. Apparently the Coast Guard decided to use high pressure water spray to assist (when their code states they are not to assist in oil rig fires as they are not qualified to do so) The weight of the water caused the rig to topple over and subsequently caused the spill. Don't know if it's true or not. At this point it really doesn't matter. I just thought it interesting and curious.

Anyway,
here is my 55

Mr man...
Mine is at home on top of the heap,
if you care to visit. Thanks.

Prayer Girl said...

Number one - you are naughty!!!

Second - I'm looking at this guy's telephone and now realize that the technology on this oil rig is way outdated. No wonder the place exploded. :)

Mine is up.
PG

hope said...

Well that's as good an explanation as any. :)

Mine's up. Finally.

Jingle said...

Happy Friday!

Monkey Man said...

Thanks for having a sense of humor.

Brian Miller said...

Michael said...

Mine is up, called "Message In A Bottle".

Jingle said...

G-man:

for about more than 1 hour and 45 minutes,
I have visited 90% of the participants.
Thanks for the opportunity,
Have a Graceful evening!

S said...

I am just amazed.
I also think about how much money I wouldnt be making if I had to take the time to visit all these 55's every week...
You're somethin' else, ya know that, G?

Felicitas said...

Imagine that! Who knew?

So this week I have a late 55 entry for you G. Hope you are having a great weekend!

joanny said...

G- man

The truth always makes it self known. Interesting -- some news journalist maybe cruising the web and pickup this tidbit.

Joanny

Maybe next week I will try this 55er- hard for me to say anything in 55 words or less.
I become a follower of yours lest I forget.

secret agent woman said...

I never got the whole phone sex thing.

Just to let you know, I had to change URL's. This avatar links ot the new site.

Jingle said...

Yesterday,
I took a wrong turn
and ended up on a cliff;
Today,
I plan my path before I start,
I want to be smart
and accomplish things with firm belief.
Tomorrow,
I’ll bury all of the sorrows
and let go of errors,
I’ll know when to stop
and orchestra my way to the top.

this is my 55,
thanks for reading it...

Jingle said...

G-man:

I posted another 55 in my blogger account,
jokes, I hope that you feel better...
at least read it and have a smile!
Happy Sunday!

:)
