Top Ten Signs You're Too Old To Trick or Treat

You know you are too old to Trick or Treat when:

10. You keep knocking on your own front door.

9. You remove your false teeth to change your appearance.
8. You ask for soft high fiber candy only.

7. When someone drops a candy bar in your bag, and you lose your balance and fall over.

6. People say: 'Great Boris Karloff Mask,'
And you're not wearing a mask.

5. When the door opens you yell, 'Trick or...'
And you can't remember the rest.

4. By the end of the night,
you have a bag full of restraining orders.

3. You have to carefully choose a costume that doesn't dislodge your hairpiece.

2. You're the only Power Ranger in the neighborhood with a walker.

1. You keep having to go home to pee!

No matter, have a HAPPY HALLOWEEN anyway!

NBA Fan Friday

If you've been hanging around these parts a while, then you know I am a huge fan of the Boston Celtics.    I subscribe to their newsletter and follow their activities, year 'round.  Mr. Eva is very understanding and has no problem with the fact that I love these guys! 

Doc Rivers is often called the best coach in the NBA, and the fact that the Celtics have been in the running for the NBA championship year after year, and have already won under his tutelage in the past backs that up. 

Paul Pierce, the team captain, is definitely a future Hall of Famer and leads his teammates with skill and determination.  He is referred to as "The Truth."

Kevin Garnet, another future Hall of Famer, also known as "The Big Ticket" is the most seasoned player on the team and besides being an outstanding player serves as a mentor and personal coach to the younger big men on the team.  He has been known to spend hours after regular practice working with the rookies--teaching them his techniques and helping them to improve.  He's also their oldest player on the team.

Rajon Rondo is the point guard and floor leader of the team.  He's amazing and has moves that are so fast that sometimes you have to watch a slow motion replay to see what he did!  He has the highest average number of assists (passes to a teammate that result in a basket scored) in the NBA.  At age 26, he probably has not yet even reached the peak of his game!

There have been some great acquisitions to the team this year, including Jason Terry, known as the Jet, who's also fast and a killer 3-point shooter.

Jeff Green is another great addition.  He was out all of last year due to heart surgery, but is back this year, better than ever!

Brandon Bass is returning and he's an excellent defender and has a pretty jump shot.

Jared Sullinger is a new young player who has shown a lot of promise in the preseason.  We can expect him to have an impact on the team, for sure.

Another newbie to the team is Courtney Lee who I expect will be scoring many "fast break" points this season.

There are other players such as Fab Melo, Darko Milicic, Chris Wilcox, Kris Joseph, Jason Collins, and Leandro Barbosa who bring a lot of depth to the team.  And of course, last year's spark plug, Avery Bradley, who made a name for himself as an outstanding defender, will be rejoining the team in a month or so, after having had surgery on both shoulders.

This year's team has an excellent combination of veterans and young blood with great talent and will definitely be a force to contend with during this season.   The first game for the Celtics is this Sunday evening against the reigning champions, the Miami Heat.  I'll be sitting in my recliner watching, cheering, and loving it all; of that you can be certain!

WTF Wednesday

It's that day of the week when I share news items with you that make me scratch my head and say What the F*ck??

What I found today made me scratch my head, but also made me laugh, so I figured I would share the laughs.  Some of you may recall that a year or so ago I did a post about people dressing their dogs and cats in clothing as though they were children.  I think it's a humiliating thing to do to pets, but that's just me.  Obviously, I'm in the minority, because every year at this time hundreds of dog owners outfit their pooches in Halloween costumes for the Tompkins Halloween Dog Parade in New York City.  This year the parade was held on October 20th, and below are some of the highlights:

                                        Mr. T

                              Spaghetti and Meatballs


                             Bumble Bee

                               Miss Piggy

                              Doggie Trump  (Complete with the hair!)




I'm still scratching my head, and even as I laughed I felt bad for these poor pooches.  They're bound to be ridiculed by their friends at the dog park.   It's just not right.

Blind Date

"How was your blind date?" a college student asked her room-mate. 
"Terrible!" the room-mate answered. "He showed up in his 1932 Rolls Royce." 
"Wow! That's a very expensive car. What's so bad about that?" 
"He was the original owner!"

Just watch and wait.....




They say that during sex you burn off as many calories as running 8 miles.
Tell me, who the hell runs 8 miles in 30 seconds?
P.S.  If you couldn't figure out yesterday's post, go back and look at the cover of the  magazine.
