Flash Friday 55.....

They amuse, protect, frustrate.
Give comfort, chew things, exasperate.
They shed, slobber, and bark
They enjoy crapping in the park.
Sometimes they pee on the rug, then hide under a couch.
They lick your face, even when you're a grouch.
In spite of it all.....
They are Unconditional Love
They are Unwavering Loyalty
They are Family.

I had a different 55 posted, but after I saw this pic of John Unger
wading out into Lake Superior to give his 19 year dog Schoep some
relief from the effects of arthritis, I had to write a little tribute.
John Unger....I'd like to shake your hand Brother!!
If you or anyone you know have written a Friday Flash 55
Please come tell The G-Man
I will visit, read, enjoy, comment....Then BOOK!!!
So from the most verklempt host from coast to coast
Have a Kick Ass Week-End!!!

Post Note: After this pic was posted on Face Book, John Unger was
deluged with contributions to pay for treatment for Schoep.
With over 25,000.00 donated, The Schoep Legacy Foundation was
established. Now other elderly pets from low income families have
a source of help for needed treatment. Schoep is now doing GREAT!!

Flash Friday 55.....

"There were no computers, no X-Box, no cable.
We had OUTSIDE!!
There were no cell phones, we had land lines.
And usually you had to share THAT with a neighbor!"
She could see Mom's lips move with the same old
'when I was a kid' lecture....
She cranked up her I-Pod and rolled her eyes.

Sorry about the Non-Fiction...hehehehe

Thursday Portrait.....

On the way to work this morning I heard a commercial
that used "God Bless America" as it's background music.
Of course that reminded me of the Great Kate Smith!!!
Kate was a famous recording star of the 40's and 50's.
She was known for her Booming and Powerful voice, and her
always upbeat and positive attitude.
She was patriotic from birth, probably due to her
being born in Washington DC. In her younger years she was
quite a looker, as you can see for yourself in the middle pic.
Unfortunately for Kate, she developed a taste for cake, and even
wrote a book extolling the glory of those frosted delights.
She traded in her swim-suit figure for the Pillsbury Dough-Girl look!
So how many varieties and flavors of cake did she have to sample to
come up with her top 55?
See you Thursday night 8:00 PM EST.....

Sunday Bliss.....

Hi Everybody!!!!!
What a Great Saturday it was...
I LOVE getting to the stadium early...TWO HOURS EARLY!
I love being among the few hundred to be seated for the pre-game
festivities. This is our 6th season for these particular seats,
and it's fun catching up with old friends while you can still
hear yourself think.
Slowly the place fills up, and for 3 Hours its a Cacophony of Noise!
Especially when the game is close, and Michigan pulls out a narrow
victory over a tough Air Force team.
Saturday's attendance...112,534
Have a Kick Ass Week My Peeps....I WILL!!!

Friday Flash 55.....

The perplexed salesman entered his Manager's office.
"HELP...A guy called and said that he had a Cream Puff
Hand-Shaker with Cow-Hide for the Bride, and The Brains
be Bustin"???
The Manager...
"Your NOT from the city are you Son?
Your gentleman has a Older Low-Miler Manual Transmission,
with Leather Seats and a Power Moon Roof"!!!

Ahhh...Car Sales Lingo. I DO love it so!!!

Thursday Portrait.....

After the Dealership expanded in 2008, my office of 12
years was given to a Manager, and I was forced to move
to a nice, but smaller office on the main showroom floor.
I Hated It!!!!
It was Loud, Claustrophobic, and Dark!
This week the powers that be, did some remodeling and I got
my old office back....YAY!!!!
As you can see, it's got glass on THREE sides.
In fact, it's so bright that I had to bust out my NEW Ray Bans!
Brown 2140 Wayfarers, with graduating darkness lenses!!
Oddly enough, these have NOTHING to do with the number 55!
I just think they're Cool.....
See you Thursday 8:00 PM EST...Be There, Or Be Square!!!
