A new event has been added to the 2012 London
Summer Olympics....Blatant Bull-Shitting!
Each country has two representitives, the first
contestant from the U.S. has just finished....
'That was Willard 'Mitt' Romney, next up Galen 'G-Man' Haynes'
(Approaches the dais)
"...Always Beautiful weather"
"Hey...Nice teeth!"

Grrrr.... Mitt ended up winning the Gold. I did get the Bronze Though!

Thursday Portrait.....

Whats the matter Bunky?<
Having trouble 'envisioning' a Friday Post?
You just can't 'see' any inspiration?
Are you 'blinded' by frustration over this?
Is writers block GLARING at you cruelly?
Is this making your temples throb and your colon shrivel?
Then hike on down to your local pharmacy and get....
BIOMEDICS 55...UV and Writers Block Prevention!!!
I'm here to tell you that not only will it help you see more clearly,
it will bring you hours of Flash Fiction Inspiration.
I can't say that you'll be able to Haiku any better, or have the ability
to understand poetic rants, (That problem is best cured with Jack Daniels)
but hey...I only give a shit about what happens on Friday!!
(or 8:00 PM EST every Thursday)

...No monetary compensation was given for this endorsement!!

Thank You TNT.....,

Not that I watch a lot of network TV anyway,
but because most everything is Summer reruns,
I find myself watching more and more Cable.
By far my two favorites are Tuesday's Rizzoli and Isles,
and Dallas on Wednesday.
Due to the expert reading tip from the beautiful Serena Joy,
I've become a huge Tess Gerritson fan, and the TV series is
loosly based on characters that she created.
Dallas is absolutely KICK ASS!!!!!
Great drama...Great twists...Great scams...and JR Ewing!!!!!
Even with a borrowed Kidney and reaching 80, Larry Hagman
expertly plays THE most unscrupulous villain in TV history....
I Love It.....!!!
I rode my Hog to work on Saturday, my buttocks faired well and it felt
Sooooooo Goooooood!!!!!

After Three Months It's...BTW!!!

This week-end Reese and I visited My nephew Kurt in
the northeren Michigan town of Oscoda. It's the location
of the former Wurtzsmith USAFB. The base is mostly rented
to a wealthy businessman named Konnie Kalitta who owns an
'international air cargo transportation company called Kalitta Air.
For the most part Konnie buys up used 747's from around the world,
he then refurbishes them into air cargo transports. The huge facility
is also a place where privately owned jets can get emergency repairs.
My nephew works as a sheet metal repairman there and on Saturday
he got me and Reese admitted.
The huge DC-10 that they are standing in front of, recently has been
in Colorado, where it has been fighting the wild forrest fires. The tank
on the bottom of the huge jet holds 12,000 gallons of water and a chemical
fire retardent additive. The disassembled 747 in the one shot has been
scavenged so that other jets may continue flying....
The big white 757 is owned by a religious group. It has 2 stories, three
baths, a full kitchen, and a dining room.....No Comment!!
I haven't worked since April due to my...."Condition"
Tomorrow, I'm Back To Work...Galen Haynes:Biker Businessman!!!
BTW...Friday Flash 55 was a Glorious success.
Thank you all for your support and participation......Later .

Friday Flash 55.....

The Club was ROCKIN!!
The speakers were blaring The Ramones, and Buddy Holly.
There was a burly doorman checking ID's. Some folks were
admitted, some were turned away. Some, like myself, just seemed
to be standing around waiting to be waived in.....
Are you shitting me....????
Andy Griffith and Ernie Borgnine just waltzed right in!!!
I guess I'll just have to wait my turn....Hehehehe!

(I've waited THREE Months to say this next ...)

Thursday Portrait.....

Last weekend, my life long fishing partner and frat brother Jim Shephard,
invited me to his boat on Saginaw Bay to do a little Walleye Fishing. It's a
good thing we went out Friday morning, because the rest of the week end
was choppy with 2-4 ft waves. In about 4 hours we caught 7 keeper Walleyes
(Sander Vitreus), and 3 Channel Cats (Ictalurus Punctatus).
Thats Me (Necrotizing Fasciitus), holding up 2 of the Cats. The smallest of the
3 weighed.....5.5 #'s
5.5...........? Is that some sort of Divine Omen?
See you(Fucking FINALLY!!!!!!) Thursday Night at 8:00 PM.!!!!!

Get Your Stories Ready.....

(He approached the stranger)
"May I have a light"?
(The stranger smiled)
'Here....Use my Bic'
(He flicked the Bic, and lit his smoke)
But the stranger got a little something extra with his Bic...
A folded note, which was discreetly and quietly pocketed.
The note said..."One more week until Friday Flash 55"!!!
Psst.....Yeah YOU!!!
Friday the 13th....BE THERE!!!
(Or 8:00 PM Thursday the 12th)
Until then....Have a Kick Ass Week-End!!!
