Another Weekly Update...

Okay, this isn’t going to be much at all, I have to work during the day today and I’m running late. I don’t blog about work, but my new job is a second shift job, but I have to train at a different building today and I have to be there at 11:30 AM. And I’m kind of bleary-eyed. Any of you that have followed my blogs know I’m not a morning person, so I’m just going to post a Cardboard Box Man Mutation that DJ Gidget sent in via her friend, Katie Lane who sent this sighting to Gidget from the Natural History Museum In Washington, DC. Thanks to Gidget and to Katie, without them I’d have nothing this week.

Aaaahhhhhh!

Oh and speaking of nothing, the new blog will be delayed one week due to technical difficulties (I have to work the dreaded day shift the week of December 3rd), so the new debut of the blog will be December 10th. Mark your Lindsay’s and calendars, have a wonderful week and thank you for the Aintree Iron!

And don’t forget to check out DJ Gidget’s and in-house artist, “Boris’s” radio show, the “Secret Weapon” on Woody Radio. “Boris” picks the tunes and Gidget spins them, check it out today, exclusively on Woody Radio. Okay, I gotta go, I’ll comment back later on tonight. Have a great week!

Cool Gidget picture. Mark Lindsay looks great in that video, he must be about 70. I guess he never ate Twinkies. Sad to see 18000 people without a job heading towards Christmas but the judge today ordered them to mediation so maybe it can be saved, and yes I ate my share of twinkies, though not in the last few decades, lol.

then i would have scored a hunky moondoggie and or bobby darin.

@csp: Ha ha ha! I would've thought he was probably still on MySpace!

@Jaws: That must be the ship that brought to the original CBBM!

@Gidget: I thought you'd like that link and you're every bit as cute as her! Thanks for this week's content!

@Ruben Dutch: Ha ha ha! You rock too, my friend!

@Al: Paul Revere and the Raiders were my first concert and I met Mark Lindsay years ago when he was playing the Heart of Illinois Fair and he was in the same radio station I was in. I met him, shook his hand and told him that I saw the him and the Raiders in 1966 and it was my first concert. Then I told him I was 8-years-old back then and slumped and said, "God do I feel old!" He was a real nice guy.

That's the shiniest Cardboard Box Man ever! Hope you're getting through your day-shift stint alright. You get a break Thursday, right?

@Bobby D: Glad you're going to jump over the the new blog and I'm thrilled that you've marked your lindsay!

@Biff: It was just one day, but the week of the 3rd, I have to work days all week, so the blog got pushed back a week. And yes, I have this Thursday off!

Hey Marty. Been busy, but hope you're doing well. One of the blackout nights I ventured to the lights and had a couple in the Russian Vodka Room and gave a little quiet toast to you. Looking forward to the new blog! Cheers n beers!

@Spike: So far everything has gone great! I like my apartment and my new job, it's a whole different field than what I was in and I'm happy about that! Too cool you made it to the Russian Vodka Room! I'll be hoisting a beer or three in your direction tonight! Cheers!
