Sunday...Anniversary's, one pending, one present... and a Movie Opening..

Well Sir....coming up this Friday, April 18th, is an anniversary that few recall. It's the 66th anniversary of Lt.Col. James Doolittle's famous raid on Tokyo approximately 5 months after the Japanese had bombed Pearl Harbor on December 7th, 1941.

As a young lad, the first book that I ever read cover to cover (other than books that were nuthin but pictures) was the famous "Thirty Seconds Over Tokyo". It was the full story of this daring raid frum it's inception to completion. The raid itself did very little tactical damage to the Japanese, and our bombers were only over Tokyo for 30 seconds of flight (hence the name of the book),but from a strategic standpoint, it was just the morale builder that our military men and women, and the folks back home needed to strike a blow back for the insidious Pearl Harbor attack.

Lt. Col. Doolittle and his men did something that had never been done before in Navy, or Army Air Force history. They flew B-25 Mitchell Bombers off the deck of the Aircraft Carrier Hornet. In that the bombers would not be able to return or land back on the Carrier Hornet, the mission was a "one way" mission, and after many of the bombers were forced to crash land in China, the survivors were then helped back to safety by the Chinese people, who were being oppressed by the Japanese.

Col. Doolittle's bomber was the first to take off...

Col. Doolittle is awarded the Congressional Medal of Honor by President Roosevelt

...If'n ya would like to read some more about this very interesting and true life be a link fer y'all....


Now Sir....ALSO....Opening this April the 18th in theaters all over the country is a movie that I will definately go and see....

It's Ben Stein's "Expelled", and from the reviews I've read about it, it's not just for folks who believe in "Intelligent Design" (God or a Higher Power), it's also of interest to those who don't.....If'n y'all want, here are three trailers for ya t'watch at yur leisure......


...and anniversary of a friend of mine, Myron from Myrons Random Thoughts had a personal anniversary that means a lot to him, and rightfully so....on April the 8th, he celebrated the 50th anniversary of him earning and receiving his coveted Submarine Dolphins for having "Qualified" on his boat. Fer those of y'all who may not understand the significance of this, it means that after a year (plus or minus) of studying, learning and being tested about EVERY system, job and aspect of that submarine, he was then capable of doing any other man's job should that shipmate be injured or killed. Belated congradulations to ya amigo..... this writing, Myron has several very good, interesting posts up regarding himself, and the United States Naval Submarine Service, which BTW, celebrated it's own 108th anniversary on April 11th as well.....

For I am a Submariner...

By John Chaffey
SSN639, SSN687, SSBN619

I served on the Holland over a century ago.

I still serve to this day on the Trident, Los Angeles & Seawolf class boats

and look forward to shipping on the Virginia, Texas and Hawaii.

Places like Fremantle, Rota, LaMadd, Chinhae, Pattaya, Sasebo and Subic stir my soul.

For I am a Submariner.

I rest in peace beneath many seas across this earth.

I was on the Barbel off Palawan, the Scorpion off the Azores and the Bonefish in the Sea of Japan.

We gave them hell in the harbors at Wewak and Namkwan.

I am a Shellback, a Bluenose, a Plank Owner, a MCPO of the Navy, a CNO and a President.

For I am a Submariner.

I heard Howard Gilmore’s final order, “Take Her Down.”

I heard the word passed, “Underway on Nuclear Power.”

I have done every job asked of me, from Messcook to Torpedoman to Motormac to COB to Skipper.

I know “Snorkel Patty” and Admiral Rickover.

For I am a Submariner.

I have twin Dolphins tattooed on my chest and twin screws tattooed on my ass.

I know the difference between a Lady and a Hooker but treat both with equal respect.

I know Georgia Street and Magsaysay drive.

And although the Horse & Cow keeps moving I will always find her.

I know the meaning of “Hot, Straight and Normal.”

For I am a Submariner.

I have stood tall and received the Medal of Honor and been thrown in the Brig for being Drunk and Disorderly.

I know the reverent tone of “Diesel Boats Forever” and the Gudgeon’s “Find em, Chase em, Sink em.”

I was on the Spearfish evacuating nurses from Corregidor and the Skate when she surfaced at the North Pole.

I have spent time in the Royal Hawaiian.

For I am a Submariner.

I have gone by names like Spritz, Cromwell, O’Kane, Ramage, Breault, “Mush” and Lockwood.

I have served on boats like the Nautilus, Thresher, Parche, Squalus, Wahoo and Halibut.

On December 7th I was onboard the Tautog at Pearl Harbor.

I was also on the Tusk in 49 and sacrificed myself for my shipmates on the Cochino.

For I am a Submariner.

I have stood watches in the cold of Holy Loch and the heat of the South Pacific.

I know what the “41 For Freedom” accomplished.

I was on the Sealion at Cavite in 41 and the Archerfish in Tokyo Bay in 45.

I have endured depth charges and POW camps.

I was on the Seafox when we lost 5 sailors to a Japanese ambush on Guam.

For I am a Submariner.

I tip beers over sea-stories with my shipmates at yearly conventions.

We toll the bell and shed a tear for our buddies who are on eternal patrol.

Many pilots have been glad to see me, including a future president.

I have completed numerous highly classified missions during the Cold War.

Because “Freedom Is Not Free,” be assured that I am out there at this very moment.

For I am a Submariner.

....and finally...being a cook, when I saw this "Smoker" over at Myrons blog yesterday, after quiverin & shudderin with climactic delight (if'n ya know what I mean), I just had t'borrow these here photygraffs from one of his posts...

Now THIS my friend is my kinda Smoker....

Friday .....

No Sir...there ain't no reason I'm postin ol Mickey''s photygraff other than the fact I want to.....


" sure is one hard, cold, frigid wummin."....


Now Sir...Pat frum prh.....A Day in the Life sent these gems along....

Fourth Place:

A man bumps into a woman in a hotel lobby and as he does, his elbow goes into her breast.
They are both quite startled.
The man turns to her and says, "Ma'am, if your heart is as soft as your breast, I know you'll forgive me."
She replies, "If your penis is as hard as your elbow, I'm in room 221."

Third Place:

One night, as a couple lays down for bed, the husband starts rubbing his wife's arm.
The wife turns over and says "I'm sorry honey, I've got a gynecologist appointment tomorrow and I want to stay fresh."
The husband, rejected, turns over.
A few minutes later, he rolls back over and taps his wife again."Do you have a dentist appointment tomorrow too?"

Runner Up:

Bill worked in a pickle factory. He had been employed there for a number of years when he came home one day to confess to his wife that he had a terrible compulsion. He had an urge to stick his penis into the pickle slicer. His wife suggested that he should see a sex therapist to talk about it, but Bill said he would be too embarrassed. He vowed to
overcome the compulsion on his own.
One day a few weeks later, Bill came home and his wife could see at once that something was seriously wrong.
"What's wrong, Bill?" she asked.
"Do you remember that I told you how I had this tremendous urge to put my penis into the pickle slicer?"
"Oh, Bill, you didn't" she exclaimed.
"Yes, I did." he replied.
"My God, Bill, what happened?"
"I got fired."
"No, Bill. I mean, what happened with the pickle slicer?"
"Oh...she got fired too."


A couple had been married for 50 years. They were sitting at the breakfast table one morning when the wife says,

"Just think, fifty years ago we were sitting here at this breakfast table together."
"I know," the old man said. "We were probably sitting here naked as a jaybird fifty years ago."
"Well," Granny snickered. "Let's relive some old times."
Whereupon, the two stripped to the buff and sat down at the table.
"You know, honey," the little old lady breathlessly replied, "My nipples are as hot for you today as they were fifty years ago."
"I wouldn't be surprised," replied Gramps.
"One's in your coffee and the other is in your oatmeal.

....and Sig from Signal 94 sent this gem for us to share....

The 6th grade science teacher, Mrs. Parks, asked her class, "Which human
body part increases to ten times its size when stimulated?"

No one answered until little Mary stood up, angry, and said, "You should
not be asking sixth-graders a question like that!"

"I'm going to tell my parents, and they will go and tell the principal,
who will then fire you!" With a sneer on her face, she then sat back

Mrs. Parks ignored her and asked the question again, "Which body part
increases to 10 times its size when stimulated?"

Little Mary's mouth fell open; then she said to those around her, "Boy,
is she going to get in big trouble!"

The teacher continued to ignore her and said to the class, "Anybody?"

Finally, Billy stood up, looked around nervously, and said, "The body
part that increases 10 times its size when stimulated is the pupil of
the eye."

Mrs. Parks said, "Very good, Billy" then turned to Mary and continued,
"As for you, young lady, I have three things to say:
One, you have a dirty mind, Two, you didn't read your homework, and
three, one day you are going to be very, very disappointed.


I don't often agree with what Pat Buchannon says...but in this case, I believe he hit the nail right on the head....


...and ya know..."Charlie the Cop" sent me this and stated that it works fer him....


I haven't checked '' to see if this actually works or not ;

But they say,

If you ever get the sudden urge to run around naked, you should drink some Windex first.

It'll keep you from streaking.

Have a Great Day!

Yet another thing to worry about.

This is scary for anyone who travels frequently by plane, especially with all the American Airlines planes already being grounded!!!

Actual crack in a US Airways DC-9 window!

Fliers beware of the sub standard maintenance
on the airplanes that you fly on.

This is an actual crack that was found in the window frame on a DC-9.
I'll definitely think twice before flying USAir.

Wednesday Wanks.....

Well Sir....I saw this over at "Snoop's" yesterday and just had to snag it......Here's who I'm a votin fer on "lection day"....


This has been around awhile, but Susan Gertson humorously reminds us of the differences between Democrats and Republicans...

A young woman was about to finish her first year of college. Like so many others her age, she considered herself to be a very liberal
Democrat, and was very much in favor of the redistribution of wealth. She was deeply ashamed that her father was a staunch Republican, a feeling she openly expressed.

Based on the lectures that she had participated in, and the
occasional chat with a professor, she felt that her father had for years
harbored an evil, selfish desire to keep what he thought should be his.

One day she was challenging her father on his opposition to higher
taxes on the rich and the addition of more government welfare programs.
The self-professed objectivity proclaimed by her professors had to
be the truth and she indicated so to her father. He responded by asking how
she was doing in school.

Taken aback, she answered rather haughtily that she had a 4.0 GPA, and let him know that it was tough to maintain, insisting that she was taking a very difficult course load and was constantly studying, which left her no time to go out and party like other people she knew.

She didn't even have time for a boyfriend, and didn't really have
many college friends because she spent all her time studying.

Her father listened and then asked, "How is your friend Audrey

She replied, "Audrey is barely getting by. All she takes are easy
classes, she never studies, and she barely has a 2.0 GPA. She is so
popular on campus; college for her is a blast. She's always invited to all
the parties, and lots of times she doesn't even show up for classes
because she's too hung over."

Her wise father asked his daughter, "Why don't you go to the Dean's
office and ask him to deduct a 1.0 off your GPA and give it to your
friend who only has a 2.0. That way you will both have a 3.0 GPA and
certainly that would be a fair and equal distribution of GPA."

The daughter, visibly shocked by her father's suggestion, angrily
fired back, "That wouldn't be fair! I have worked really hard for my
grades! I've invested a lot of time, and a lot of hard work! Audrey has done next
to nothing toward her degree. She played while I worked my tail off!"

The father slowly smiled, winked and said gently,

"Welcome to the Republican party."


....and Charlie the Cop tells us about somthin I think we'd all like to do to door to door salesmen.....

A little old lady answered a knock on the door one day, only to be confronted by a well-dressed young Man carrying a vacuum cleaner.

'Good morning,' said the young man. 'If I could take couple of minutes of your time, I would like to demonstrate the very latest in high-powered vacuum cleaners.'

'Go away!' Said the old lady. 'I'm broke and haven't got any money!' and she proceeded to close the door quick as a flash, the young man wedged his foot in the door and pushed it wide open.

'Don't be too hasty!' He said. 'Not until you have at least seen my demonstration.'
And with that, he emptied a bucket of horse Manure onto her hallway carpet.

'If this vacuum cleaner does not remove all traces of this horse manure from your carpet, Madam, I will personally eat the remainder.'

The old lady stepped back and said,

"Well...Let me get you a fork sonny,'cause they cut off my electricity this morning".


At Saint Mary's Catholic Church they have a weekly husband's marriage seminar.

At the session last week, the Priest asked Luigi, who was approaching his 50th wedding anniversary, to take a few minutes and share some insight into how he had managed to stay married to the same woman all these years.

Luigi replied to the assembled husbands, 'Well, I've a tried to treata her nice, spenda the money on her, but best is that I tooka her to Italy for our 20th anniversary!'

The Priest responded, 'Luigi, you are an amazing inspiration to all the husbands here!

Please tell us what you are planning for your wife for your 50th anniversary.'

Luigi proudly replied, 'I'm a gonna go and get her.

....Thanks Susan fer that sage advice....there are times I wish I had thought of that and taken the misses back to Ireland....

A Fart it is a pleasant thing,

It gives the belly ease,

It warms the bed in winter,

And suffocates the fleas.

A fart can be quiet,

A fart can be loud,

Some leave a powerful,

Poisonous cloud

A fart can be short,

Or a fart can be long,

Some farts have been known

To sound like a song......

A fart can create

A most curious medley,

A fart can be harmless,

Or silent , and deadly.

A fart might not smell,

While others are vile,

A fart may pass quickly,

Or linger a while......

A fart can occur

In a number of places,

And leave everyone there,

With strange looks on their faces.

From wide-open prairie,

To small elevators,

A fart will find all of

Us sooner or later.

Farts are all bad,

Is simply not true-

We must never forget.......

Old farts like you!
