Our "stinky" friend, "Stinko", stops by, lets us know how he is faring during this summer vacation from school.

Hey, guys (and gals)!  It's me, the Stink-Man!

I am loving this time away from the prison disquised as a school building.  School was getting on my last nerves!!  I haven't really gone anywhere yet, but have gotten a lot of swimming, baseball, soccer in.  Also have gotten a lot of extra sleeptime in; haven't gotten out of bed before noon most days since I've been off school. :)

With gas nearing four dollars a gallon, we can't really afford to go anywhere far; we've only gone to OpryMills a few times; that gets boring after a while.  Or we've accompanied my brother during his doctor's appointments; that's a real drag, too. 

Some exciting life I lead, hunh??

Now that "AI" is over, I can concentrate on watching other things on tv; but then "AGT" starts up, and when I came into the room the other night there was this tiny four year old chick singing.  She wasn't bad, but once  you've heard one little kid sing, you've more than likely heard them all.  She wasn't spectacular; she didn't knock my socks off.

The one that did get my attention was this fat guy singing opera.  He was an insurance salesman; he should seriously give up the insurance biz, go into music.  He has a phenominal voice!!  Not that I'm into opera, but boy, that cat could sing!!  He knocked my socks off, much more than that four year old wunderkind!!

My brother liked the little girl; that's all he's been talking about since the show ended.  I'm starting to get a little sick of hearing about little Kaitlyn Maher; she's all over the news, and I'm sure she's littering You-Tube with vids of her performance on AGT!!

All of a sudden, she's the hottest thing around!  So is that opera guy; both are causing the people to flap their tongues!!

I've seen some of my school chums since school let out, and I saw Johnathon Sandusky at the mall the other day.  Still skinny as a post, no meat on his bones.  At least his color's looking better than the last time I saw him:  the last time I saw Johnathon, he looked like death warmed over; now at least he has some decent color to his skin!!

Hope he makes it to his sixteenth birthday; I really worry about him...

His sister, Ronee', meanwhile, tried out for "AGT", but did not make it.  She got cut; she did okay, but her voice faltered at the end, and you could tell that she was scared.  She looked like a scared rabbit.  I don't know why the judges didn't pick her; they must have been blind and deaf to pick a four year old over a fifteen year old!! LOL Gad!!

As you can imagine, Johnathon's pissed about it.  He said he was robbed.  LOL  I tend to agree; Ronee' has a voice that can stop traffic! LOL  She's really good!!

I was hoping we'd go out west to Idaho or somewheres, to visit my uncle and aunt, but it looks like we're staying put for the time being.  With all these gas prices going on the up and up, more people are choosing to stay home or trading their gas guzzlin' vehicles for more gas-efficient models.  Guess that means I won't be seeing as many Hummers about!!

I think people who have Hummers are stupid. :P

Well, I am going to get some brekky; it's one thirty eight, just got up not even fifteen minutes ago; I'm stahving!! LOL  I will write in  here again soon; until later, this is Stinko saying so long for now!

~"Stinko". :)

Try to have fun around the house this summer, Stinko; I'd love to go to Idaho myself, but with these gas prices, I think I'll just swim in my kiddy pool in the old backyard, with my dogs!

You show us how Stinko's summer vacation is going--television and friends. That sounds so familiar.

LOL at "People who have HUMMERS are stupid." Tend to agree, Stinko, tend to agree. :) And the guy who sang opera was fantastic! The little girl, pretty good, but not good enough to advance, the fifteen year old (not Ronee LOL) was WAY better, in my opinion. GRRRRRRRR LOL Well penned, Karen!

(((HUGS))) and love, Karla.
