liked "Dead Alive", you will LOVE this.

couple years ago.!

Tasteless Jokes of the Month
- Jonny asked his friend, Tony, whether he had bought his wife anything
for Valentine's Day.
'Yes,'came the answer from Tony who was a bit of a chauvinist, 'I've
bought her a belt and a bag.'
'That was very kind of you,'Jonny added,'I hope she appreciated the
Tony smiled as he replied,So do I, and hopefully the vacuum cleaner will
work better now.'

chick is you!
And then it was February!
Which means there isn't a whole hell of a lot to write about.
January flew by. It was accentuated with an awesome trip up to
Connecticut and Rhode Island to visit some old friends and carouse in
some of the old stomping grounds (Brown Derby, anyone?).
The trip was punctuated with a 12 hour trip to Foxwood's Casino for
some non-stop drinking and gambling. Ok, I did stop, but it was only to
watch the 11 p.m show of Frank Caliendo at the Fox Theater (formerly
known as the Frank Sinatra Theater). What a great night all the way
And of course, February brings the dreaded Valentine's Day. If you
haven't read any of my Rants concerning this "holiday", make sure you
swing up on the "Rants" tab (hit it, of course) and search through some
previous February's to see what I had to say.
In the meantime, here is a little something that someone special told me
I need to share.
Till next time......drinks are on me,
