I got got got got got no


Which is mainly why you haven't had no daily doubles, and not hardly nothing else, although computer malfuction is mostly to blame for the daily doubles issue.  And my time will free up in a month or so when my Standardized Patient duties are mostly over.  

Go back to my October 7, 2011 post for learning about my Standardized Patient dealie.

your Daily Double or GET THIS!!!!! GET THIS!!!!!!!!

These could be storyboards for a 1940s war movie/film noir

While our hero Rex O'Sexie is in the air doing the dogfighting thing pilots do, which does not involve actual dogs,

the woman he loves, Flammibila Hotchick, freelance femme fatale, has eyes for someone else.

Both our leads appear on all kinds of must have stuff, including mugs, apparel, cards, paper items, etc. etc. etc.   Go to  www.zazzle.com/the_olden_eye?rf=238225004668148127 and in the 'Search This Store' box, enter ''dogfight' or 'femme fatale' 

How was your


Ours - the hubbage and I - had a GREAT Easter.  

Because a) we got to the Sunrise Service at Glen Foerd on time for once. (Yay!)

Here's some pix...

The guy at the microphone is the pastor of the Lutheran church on Woodhaven Road.
(Love the clerical collar and his hair style - really. That 'do - longish, parted in the middle, and swept back - was popular in the '80s and early '90s, but only works with straight or straight-ish hair.  Alas, the hubbage has curly hair, worn in a pony tail.) 
 To the left of Pastor GreatHair is my pastor, Arthur Johnson, Jr.

Pastor Johnson has been coming to this thing for 25 years or better, and he always sings...

'Where You There When They Crucified My Lord.'  He has a GREAT singing voice; if someone had gotten ahold of him 60 years ago and sent him for training, he'd have sung at the Met.

Speaking of singing, we just happened to sit near a lady who had an amazing singing voice.

You can see the sun doing its thing in the background.

The awesomely all that Glen Foerd mansion.

Deer me.

Now, onto b)  after the above service, we went home, gussied up, and went to Cape Island Baptist Church for the regular 11:00 a.m. service.   I wore a hat, only one of two hat-wearing ladies there, and got lots of compliments for it.
