“Sanctuary” by Will Wilson….Whenever you’re feeling too chubby and sense that you are without clothing (“nude”) and have had 4 Manhattans too many, just say “Sanctuary! Sanctuary!” and the angelic version of Halle Berry will suddenly appear to prop you up and to raise your spirits, always smiling, forever smiling, endless smiling!!….Either that or Charles Laughton will swing from the nearest bell tower to prop you up….Your choice….Depends on your imagination, your ability to conjure up lustful thoughts after 8 Manhattans, and whether you like an angelic Halle Berry more than an angelic Charles Laughton!!….Taken from tindink’s site, a site of endlessly interesting images…and tindink, of course!….tindink notes, and I’m in full agreement with this, “Will Wilson’s site is full of wonderful portraits, still life, the figurative and the whimsical all painted in the classical style of the old masters”….absolutely.

Really, how do you get any better than this…love it….from the aptly-named, Viva Van Story Pinup Photography Gallery….Why, this could be Viva Van Story herself using one of those camera timers (that have been meticulously crafted to make the camera go off just BEFORE you get into the picture…..showing her obvious brilliance, Ms. Van Story must have done the old “Look that way!” to this camera and fooled it long enough so that she could pop into the photo and position herself so provocatively!!)….Thanks to the ever-ever-popular (like 12 million fans/friends) Nacmacfeagle for this and the previous photos….I’d add her as a friend, but when you have THAT many friends, who needs a schlepp like me!!

Hitchin’ a ride to nowhere…with some crazy looking character behind the wheel (I think?) who has enough luggage up top for a 3000 mile trip going 8 miles an hour….Everybody loves this photographer, Eugenio Recuenco (and if you don’t, there’sa somthinga wronga witha you!!)….lots of awesomely creative/humorous and brilliantly colored photos on his site (sites?)….a must see!….and from the number of stumblers who have his photos on their sites, the multitudes have already followed my advice!!

The afternoon I took care of my 3rd cousin, twice-removed, Zoltan Schmett’s kids….It was easy….I just gave them 10 pounds of marbles and some other crap I’d picked up at St. Vinny’s and told them they could do whatever they wanted so long as I was in the same room they were in (I’m not TOTALLY irresponsible!) and they didn’t interrupt me during any 10th frame on Northeastern Wisconsin Championship Bowling (brought to me by BubbleUp, the pop that never fizzles)….They were great and ended up liking me a lot more than either of their parents (who seem, oddly enough, to have stricter rules they’re supposed to follow)….I did toss in a Pepperoni Supreme Pizza from Gumby’s midway through my shift….That certainly helped boost my “coolness” factor with the kiddies (and kept me from having to make the microwave Banquet TV dinners Zoltan’s wife, Eddie, told me to give them….too much hassle….and I’m not sure that anything that has 1700 calories and 287% of your daily sodium is particularly good for you….especially when you’re 3 feet tall!!).

My sometime girlfriend, Venusanski Blett, and I celebrating the deliciousness of the creme brule (excuse the missing accents, the spelling, etc.) at Bob & Dick’s Supper Club Emporium over on county highway MM (near the cheese factory…you know the place)….You should see how we celebrate when the entree has been decent!!!….Bob & Dick’s not so great on the entrees (salmon on a stick being the house specialty)….but there are a few fine dining establishments where we’ve celebrated the entree like there’s no tomorrow!!…..That’s about the only cause to celebrate around here these days now that we don’t have enough gas money to go more than 10 miles from home (Ms. Blett lives two houses down so she’s numero uno on my current list of “persons to go to Bob & Dick’s with”….can’t afford to pick up the others that used to be on the list…..and they absolutely refuse to hike or bike over to my place!!).

Once again it is time to say “Goodnight!” to my friends (and to those who think my site is a thread of garbage dump stops…or who don’t think of my site at all….oh, ya gotta love the indifferent and the callous and the self-absorbed (I mean, who else would not like my most excellent attempt at blogging within my limited abilities, huh???)….Anywho, as I stare, from my computer, out my front door window into a street backed by a lot full of high weeds and big-big boulders, I imagine that some day someone I know will know someone who owns a place across the street from the guy who owns this place…and when I go to visit the guy I know I’ll just happen to run into his neighbor and his neighbor will say, “You really want to see a great view? Run up those stairs there and take a quick peak because I have to catch my flight to Vegas…Were you ever in Vegas? The most beautiful city in the world!!…Well, go on and take a quick peak before I turn the security system on and lock the gate to my driveway!”…And I’ll rush up those stairs, take a peak at this, and fall over dead so I can have more body time with the most beautiful view I ever did see!!”….Of course, that won’t happen, but I can dream, can’t I???….Thanks so much to my friend eftych for this!!….And for allowing me to write crazy stuff to accompany the pic!….A double gift!!

This photo reminds me of what I should be doing now instead of stumbling and drinking a couple of bottles of Capitol Brewery Island Wheat (which is a local craft beer created for crafty guys/women like me….not that I’m a woman, mind you, but you get the idea)….I have had occasions similar to this one in my life, with a much, much cheaper car (about $90,000 cheaper) and a much, much cheaper beverage (ranging from MD 20/20, which I could also use to clean my spark plugs, to Bob’s Fine Whitish Wine from the Wisconsin Northwoods and Nearby Areas)…but the women involved, although not expensively attired as this lovely lady, were certainly as lovely….However, the back seats were about half of the size of this one so they weren’t exactly resting so luxuriantly… and didn’t have that “I’m guessin’ it’s time to get back to the mansion” look on their faces….Why, I’m not sure??
