Flat on me back!

I have had some writing in mind, but my back has been bothering me, so I've been trying to take some stress out of it...and on top of that, my foot has been suffering as well! Jeez! Don't get old...

Austerlitz Day!

On this day in 1805, Napoleon destroyed the Third Coalition, in perhaps the Supreme Victory of L'Grande Armee! This is the day we should use to relish those well-deserved accomplishments we all have.

Celebrate your greatest triumph! Be One with your Imperial BadAss Self! 205 years from now, let the world blog your greatness!

25?!? I have anxieties older than that!

Trooper York brought Scarlett over to help celebrate her 25th birthday...

I got a nice spontaneous image of Scarlett with my little Brownie camera in the cold November Ann Arbor Night...

and now somebody want breakfast... Ooops! Well, coffee's on...

Happy Birthday Ms. Johannson!

On it!

Trooper is right ...I need more post toasties! I have sent a few posts Amba's way, but I can't neglect old Fluffy!

Right ScarJo?


Ginger's been keepin' me happy with ice cream...

wha happened?

For those of you who don't know, I missed all of September because I was in the hospital with Legionnaire's disease. It was pretty serious, and at first, I was in bad shape. But after two + weeks in UM hospital, I seem to be ok now! I may have some long term issues, but the main thing is I ain't dead, and I have a large number of people to thank. First, I have to give up a lot of love to Camie; she's been an absolute trooper through this crisis, and the master of the house of Fluff. I simply can't believe the energy that flows through this crazy Interweb, and comes back to me through many amazing people, notably Amba, Trooper York, Darcy, Chickelit, Freeman... if I forgot anybody by name you definitely get the Oscar thanks!

I was looking through some of my older posts here, and I forgot how much fun this whole blog has been for going on 6 years now. I'll be trying to get back to that sense of fun here and I'm working on a writing project (with Amba's prodding!) which I'll hammering away at. Am I really a writer? I may need to embrace this, mind and heart.

I'm back!

Has it been two months? Well...I have excuses, like almost dying! (more later) Ah...Joan's here to welcome me back...

Why, yes. Yes it is.

Coffee Hello!

Oh, wait, I'm not on Twitter....

The hash browns are still warm, the coffee's good...I'm still sort of tired, but what of it?

OMG, Cynnie is right, Ms. Parker has no did she get famous?

Let's see...watched both Death Race and Hellboy II this past weekend...both recommended.

I'm going back to watch CSPAN...

Toy Series #7 "Rushmore +++"


Monster George, Monster George,
Stomped the British at Valley Forge...

Well, thanks to the noble chickelit we now have our missing Washington -- sort of! I didn't realize that Marx made different sizes for this figure what one is mine? Curious...

Toy Series #7 "Rushmore -"

The "Rushmore" sessions, Day 1:

Tom: Teddy, Abe

Abe: S'up

TR: Hey! Where's George?

Abe: Yeah, is he late...again? Prima Donna!

Tom: George is in a pitch meeting with Warners on the West Coast, with Chickelit!

Abe: Is it that "Denture Movie" prequel again? No one wants a feature about the ancestor of an obscure Bond villain!

Tom: No, this is Bennie Arnold, Burn In Hell! Probably better with the tween demo anyway.

Abe: Who's playing him? Barry Bostwick? No powder needed for that wig! [raucous laughter]
TR: Hey, that's better than Mork from Orc! Was Russell Crowe busy that week or what?

Tom: or Nick Nolte

Abe: Uhhh... I didn't mind Raymond Massey...but I wouldn't try to kill Cary Grant!

JFK: Fellows, if we need a "Father of The Country", I'll be happy to, uh, fill in!
TR: Dude, give it up!

Toy Series #6

Bully! It's hard not to just automatically say, "Bully!" when talking about TR. A personal favorite of Fluffy Stuffin'. Possibly a Saint of The House of Fun as well? I'll do some more reading before I write him up!

Toy Series #5

Here we have the standing FDR, complete with cape! And in Superman colors, no less!

For Chickelit!

Toy Series #4

Tom Jefferson is pleading his case...or perhaps selling his wares on the Home Shopping Channel!
And no, that is not his Jolson impression!

Toy Series #3

Harry Truman tells a dirty joke! Use your imagination!

Toy Series #2

OK, so I've been nudged about the pics here for the Toy Series, but I couldn't figure out a way to get a clear pic of something so small....but the scanner can do it!

When I was a lad, I got a giant, detailed model of the Capitol Building. This thing was almost 4 feet long! I've lost that over time, but it did come with...a set of US Presidents! These are teeny; they're only 2 inches tall! I still have most of the set...minus some casualties (like Washington) This company was also going to make a White House model, but I don't think they ever did...

I post John Adams today...Perhaps, if people are interested, I'll post a few more Prezs!

Toy Series #1

Well, here's the first of the many Toy pics that will be forthcoming...but, wait, we can't do it!

Here's a picture of George Washington instead...let's comment on the first President shall we?

A very sweet F&G video made from stills.

The Teaser

Yow, time flies! Well, here's my teaser for my "toy" series...

The hole in the box covers the word "Truans", which made this small box of candy when I was a lad, and now contains the "political" toy that you'll be seeing...

Stay tuned!

Christopher Walken on Golf

Golf. My God, that's a mysterious occupation. I know people who are — good friends — who are absolutely smitten, practicing their swing and talking about it. I can understand some sort of sport where your body got a benefit, like marathon running or bicycle racing. That's not golf. And not only that, but the whole business of standing in the sun — my God. That's like torture.

What a Dump!

Bette Davis knows you're there! And your friend Addison deWitt won't help you!

Poor lil' blog...

You think I've forgotten you? I haven't, honest! I've just been busy lately and today is no different! But I stumbled onto a old childhood toy and I'll be having some fun with that here, so stay tuned!

Thanks, Trooper & Simon!

For taking Miss Holloway home! But I want my black satin sheets back, count on it! I'm exhausted... and need a nap! Maybe after a couple of beers...

Careful with those boobs fellas...they're a national treasure!

Hat tip to "Mrs. Vog"

I go Old School from time to time...but how could I go without my bestest friend in the world, Miki?

For you, Sugarpuss...the Mikiphone.

Back Home

Yeah, she may go and visit over at Trooper York's, but Joan always comes back to Fluffy Stuffin'...for the love! Ain't that so, Joan? Yeah...

Career goal of the week!

The New Fluffy Theme Song

Normally this would be ZZ Top's "Heard it On The X", but we have a new frontrunner!

If we can get Carmen Electra on the stripper pole, does it matter if it's Puccini on ocarinas?

Cafe Japon

Camie and I took Beanie to Cafe Japon, which is a pretty cool fusion of French and Japanese cuisine. Since we went for breakfast, I thought I'd pass it along to you...

Beanie trying hard to look cute, but looks more Bogie than Bacall!

After getting a paper butterfly, Beanie looks for things in the plants.

Beanie and Mama Vog lookin' especially sweet!

Ahh... a press pot of coffee! Excellent! Better cups than the normal Joe Holders, eh?

Beanie gets the "Japanese style" toast with strawberry jam... Looks like what we call Texas Toast! Tokyo Toast, then?

Camie goes for the brioche with the egg and Guryere cheese... very tasty!

I get the crepes with the egg in the middle and the ham and Guryere folded into the sides! Neat, eh?

An excellent place, and we'll be back!

Sunday, March 22, 2009


Sorry about not posting much this week; I'm in a bad sleeping pattern, and am having a hard time breaking it. Next time, when I'm up at 4:00 AM, I'll just go with the flow and write something here for y'all!

What tha?!? These nuts have taken over my blog!

Those crazy Astaire kids just won't stop! Here's even more of their silliness...from 1926.

I think Dellie looks like Camie's daughter....80 years removed, of course!

Meanwhile, Ginger waits her turn...for what, I wonder!

Don't mind me, just feeding the spiders...

Many people find this blog through searching for pics of Scarlett Johannson. Since the mechanisms of web commerce have determined my part in the greater Interweb good, I can do naught but to make people happy. Why are you still reading this?

Crazy Old Coot!

Now here we have a role model. At this point, Errol Flynn's pickled liver has rung up a few extra miles on the odometer, but does that stop him from chasing tail? Oh, hell no! He'll Die With His Boots On.

And when he finally kicked the bucket -- at 50! Yay, we're older than Errol Flynn -- what went into the coffin with him? 6 bottles of whiskey, connecting to our last post...
