Aw Cheese...

You guys are awesome!
I want to than all of you for the birthday wishes and rosettes you have sent to me.
I know I don't play here anymore, but I think of you guys a lot and I miss you all.
It's been lonely without you guys I must admit. And, I don't really have the fun with Dutchess that I had with all of you, but know that we are well and I still beat her up because she deserves it.

Again, thank you for thinking of me on MY day. (Just because it's Dutchesses birthday too doesn't mean she should get any attention).

LOVE ALWAYS!

Little Gordy

Famous guys in History

SO there's this guy - Alan who now lives in CA.
He's good a pretty neat story. There are books and movies about him and his cases because he's done some pretty cool stuff in his life.
Alan was Larry's friend.
Larry did something that many, MANY people would consider to be NOT NICE.
Larry had this thing that a lot of people liked to buy. In this thing Larry made fun of this guy named Jerry.
Jerry was, and still is, a well respected man in his line of work and Jerry believed that Larry said some mean things about him and his mother.
Of course, Larry believed his things to be so "OUT THERE and RIDICULOUS" that the people that buy his thing would know it was all just a joke and that would be it.
Jerry thought that Larry should be sued and took him to court.
Alan - remember Alan? was also Larry's lawyer.
After Jerry won lawsuits for "Emotional distress damages" in the amount of $200,000 in lower courts, Alan took Larry's case before the Supreme Court of the United States where he successfully argued Larry's appeal and won Larry's case.
A HUGE win for first amendment rights.

All of this stuff happened less than 20 miles from where I live and it’s right about anniversary time!
From Wikipedia
Benedict Arnold was a general during the American Revolutionary War. He began the war in the Continental Army but later defected to the British Army. While he was still a general on the American side, he obtained command of the fort at West Point, New York, and plotted unsuccessfully to surrender it to the British. After the plot was exposed in September 1780, he entered the British Army as a brigadier general.
In spite of his successes, Arnold was passed over for promotion by the Continental Congress while other officers claimed credit for some of his accomplishments. Adversaries in military and political circles brought charges of corruption or other malfeasance, but he was acquitted in most formal inquiries. Congress investigated his accounts, and found that he owed it money after he had spent much of his own money on the war effort. Frustrated and bitter, Arnold decided to change sides in 1779, and opened secret negotiations with the British. In July 1780, he sought and obtained command of West Point in order to surrender it to the British. Arnold's scheme was exposed when American forces captured British Major John André carrying papers that revealed the plot. Upon learning of André's capture, Arnold fled down the Hudson River to the British sloop-of-war Vulture, narrowly avoiding capture by the forces of George Washington, who had been alerted to the plot.
Arnold moved to London 1791 to settle permanently, where he died ten years later.
Because of the way he changed sides his name quickly became a byword for treason or betrayal.


WOW, to go from a respected general to forever being known as a traitor? I wonder if that ever made him sad.

 

HAPPY BIRTHDAY BUGS BUNNY!

WOW!
OK kitties, tell the truth- Did ANYONE know that it was BUGS BUNNY'S 70th birthday today????
YEAH!

According to Bugs Bunny: 50 Years and Only One Grey Hare, he was born on July 27, 1940 in Brooklyn, New York (in a warren under Ebbets Field, famed home of the Brooklyn Dodgers), created by Tex Avery (who directed A Wild Hare, Bugs Bunny's debut) and Robert McKimson (who created the definitive Bugs Bunny character design), among many others. According to Mel Blanc, the character's original voice actor, Bugs Bunny has a Flatbush accent, an equal blend of the Bronx and Brooklyn dialects (of the New York Accent). His catchphrase is a casual "Eh...what's up, doc?", usually said while chewing a carrot. His other popular phrases include "Of course you realize, this means war", "Ain't I a stinker?" and "I knew I shoulda taken that left turn at Albuquerque."

How cool is that?
AND, New York Yankee, Alex Rodriguez is 34.

I'm in pretty good company...
Except for Dutchie.

*HACK*

 

Happy 75th Birthday!

TO THE
...
PARKING METER!!!!

WOOOOOOOOOOOOO
YEAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA

What the fur????

The ***Parking Meter*** is 75 years old TODAY.

That lovely little contraption that inspires mommies to dig frantically through their bottomless bags in search of that elusive quarter for those 10 minute increments that are forbidden to be repeated.

Without the parking meter, our little boroughs wouldn't be able to afford the six-figure salaries of our police officers who don't fight crime - but patrol the "PARKING METER OFFENDERS" in that - 3-wheeled buggie thing for that millisecond those 10 minutes are up.

Without the parking meter offenders, we wouldn't have that parking violation offense of the $125 ticket for the 2 minute over the metered time offense that "could have cost you a quarter if you obeyed the posted law" (yet time can not be repeated???).

Without these NUMEROUS "repeat offender hardened criminals" in our towns that need to be stopped, we wouldn't have the need for our 6-figured salaried police officers.

AND in order to KEEP our 3-wheeled, buggy-driving bored-to-death police officers with nothing to do but cite parking meter violations, it's VERY OBVIOUS that we do, in fact, NEED our parking meters.

SO,
Happy Birthday Parking Meter
May you continue to gobble up my mommies quarters and not display her 10 minutes for your own personal enjoyment or for whatever deal you have on the side with the officers of the mob - uh.. law.
Just keep in mind that one day when it is time for you to be recycled, I will be first in line to nominate you as a scratching post or a fire hydrant.

SO KICKIN' to be a Diary Pick today!
Definitely those Chuck Norris moves that got me noticed.
It HAS to be.
Either that or just my fuzzy cuteness that Dutchie is so jealous of.
She is so jealous! SHE IS SO JEALOUS!
*giggle*
Thank you to my friends for the p-mails and rosies. IT's been a while since I've been around here and even longer that I've been picked for this so I'm very happy about it.
What a great start to the summer for me.
I hope you all have a great summer as well.
*BONKS* to you all!
