WELCOME to THURSDAY JANUARY 27, 2021
Here’s The Story…..
One night at about 3 a.m. my wife was getting up from the toilet to return to bed when she heard a little noise. It was a suspiciously rodent like sound that seemed to be right in the bathroom with her. She, of course, froze and listened attentively for any further sign of invaders. After a moment, satisfied that she was alone, she took a step for the door. Rodent scratchy sounds again! She froze, not breathing. Silence. Her heart beat fast as she once again tried to retreat from the bathroom. This time the noise was accompanied by something touching the back of her leg! That was too much to bear. She literally flew the 8 feet to the bed, clearing the foot board by a couple feet, to land screaming by my side. The culprit was right there in plain sight, a trail of toilet paper neatly marked the path from bed to the bathroom. 😳
That’s my story and I’m sticking to it! Have a GREAT THURSDAY people,
stay safe, and whatever you do, don’t forget to laff it up! Peace, I am outta here! Eucman! 😁

“A new study has found that being good-looking can hurt a man’s career because the
people in charge of hiring see attractive men as a threat. So if you’re a man who was
recently hired for a new job, congratulations. You’re hideous.” -James Corden
“A new report found that 20 percent of people over 45 had to dip into their retirement
savings last year. And the other 80 percent said, ‘retirement savings?'” -Jimmy Fallon
“According to a new report, by 2050, the world’s oceans will contain more plastic trash
than fish. So the next time you get dumped, remember: There’s plenty of trash in the sea.” -Seth Meyers
Guaranteed to Roll Your Eyes
Bad weather meant I was stuck overnight at O’Hare airport in Chicago. Along with hotel
accommodations, the airline issued each passenger a $10 meal ticket, or “chit.” That
evening after dinner I presented my meal ticket to the cashier.
“Is this chit worth $10?” I asked.
Looking up nervously, the cashier responded, “I’m sorry, sir. Was the meal that bad?”
Wednesdays’ Movie Trivia of the day! What movie is this quote from??? “
“Oh, you drink coffee, don’t you?”
“I consume a couple of cups a day.”
Answer: Summer of ’42!
In this scene young teenager Hermie (Gary Grimes) has carried a bag of groceries for young war bride, Dorothy (Jennifer O’Neill), from the village to her Nantucket Island cottage. She invites him to stay for a cup of coffee and then adds line one. Hermie, trying to sound more adult, responds with line two. This movie tells the mostly true story of Hermie and two of his friends in one memorable summer on Nantucket Island. He is smitten when he first sees Dorothy and then is devastated when her husband is killed in World War II. There are two especially wonderful quotes from this movie, with the first at the very beginning: “Nothing from that first day I saw her, and nothing that has happened to me since, has ever been as frightening and as confusing. For no person I’ve ever known has ever done more to make me feel more sure, more insecure, more important, and less significant.” At the very end Hermie is reminiscing about the adventures he and his pals have had that summer and about the young war widow Dorothy: “I would never see her again. Nor would I learn what became of her.”
