Dear Guys and Dolls:
Do you know why I call you that at times? I named my blog Joey Z's Speak Easy because of an old musical called Guys and Dolls that starred Frank Sinatra and Marlon Brando made back in 1955. I like certain musicals and this one is very good. If you have never seen it check out Turner Movie Classics on the web and check their monthly calendar of movies.
Tomorrow starts the weekend and there are some playoff football games to watch. Sorry about my Eagles but they need to find players who have the desire to win. I personally do not blame Andy Reid, he was a good coach and will be with another team soon. It all boils down to money. The team does not produce wins or make the playoffs and the coach is first go. Profit to the owners is their game, yet you'll those seats are filled to capacity every Sunday, win or lose and they are not cheap to purchase so money if being made. Maybe Speaker John Boehner who is looking out only for rich of this country should be given a tryout as a coach. Wonder what he would do on 4th down and one, punt or go for it. Hey John have you heard Governor Christie of New Jersey is waiting for you and other members of Congress to give aid to the people of his state for the disaster that the storm brought. I say give it the old try for first down. Enough of political stuff for today. If you want real political debates I leave that up to Roe.
Lets see what we can celebrate over the weekend. First of all let us start with:
Trivia Day - to me trivia questions and games are a lot of fun. My son Joey has a new edition and it's pretty hard at times, but us guys defeated our dolls when last played. Good moves Joey!
Sir Isaac Newton's Birthday - all I can say is watch out Sir Isaac underneath that apple tree.
National Bird Day -I love birds but don't get real close to a Mocking bird's nest they will buzz you like a dive bomber. I have seen this with my own eyes when cats are around. We have a nice small tree near our screen porch. There is an old nest now the home of a female dove sitting on her eggs. I can go out and look at her and I'm sure she feels no one will harm her and the babies. The last little birds were attacked by a falcon.
For you pasta lovers out there, I know of only one word macaroni and to me that means all the varieties. So if you are a Spaghetti fan this weekend is all yours to boil the water, throw in the Spaghetti and add your favorite gravy and enjoy. Have a great weekend Speakies, see you next week.
