Channeling Ray Stevens - 04/09/14

I love to sing.  I sing to my kiddos and I sing in the car, shower, etcetera.

I don't sing on TV.  It's happened only once before today - when a producer in Tucson asked me to try the "Cup Song" with the whole hand trick thing.  It was silly.  I did it.  Okay, cool.

Well today, Deana Martin was in studio and coaxed me to sing.  Deana is the daughter of the legendary Dean Martin.  She is exquisite, funy, snazzy, perky, talented.  I could go on and on.  We were talking about the people her dad interviewed on his variety show, Ray Stevens came up.  I love those crazy Ray Stevens songs.  I was mesmerized by Deana and when I started singing Ray Stevens... well, I don't know what came over me.  She sang along and made it fun - even if I looked the fool.

I guess if nothing else, I had a good trip down memory lane.  My Gramps used to play Ray Stevens songs when I was little and I loved every minute of it.  My favorite song is "Mississippi Squirrel Revival" so I sang part of that today.  Maybe Gramps was listening - hopefully the rest of you were watching with the volume turned down.  :)

OBAMA - BOYFRIEND

WASHINGTON (AP) -- Maybe he thought he was talking to a certain one of President Obama's Democratic predecessors. A Chicago guy saw Barack Obama casting an early vote in Chicago the other day -- and when the president ended up standing up near his girlfriend, the man issued a mock warning to the chief executive: "Don't touch my girlfriend." The president took the joke in stride, laughing and saying of the boyfriend: "There's an example of a brother just embarrassing me for no reason." The woman apologized, but then Obama flipped the script on the make-believe jealous suitor. He gave the woman a kiss and told her to "Give him something to talk about."

ELECTRIC BILL

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) -- That should pay for an awful lot of lights on an awful lot of nights. A New Mexico man says he made an error while paying his electric bill that led him to overpay by thousands of dollars. KOB-TV reports Ira Karmiol made a mistake in keying in his bill payment -- instead of$278 dollars, he entered a fourth digit, rocketing the payment up to $2,787. He noticed the mistake a few days later and called the utility, which said its policy requires up to a month to process a refund. A spokesman for The Public Service Company of New Mexico says it will try to resolve the square up the matter "as quickly as possible."

BOBCAT ESCAPES

STAFFORD TOWNSHIP, N.J. (AP) -- It's one thing to see a Bobcat at a construction site -- since the machine is pretty popular. But a real, live, bobcat that keeps getting loose in a neighborhood is not so popular with New Jersey authorities. The Asbury Park Press reports Rocky the bobcat has again gone missing from the home of Ginny Fine in Stafford Township. The 38-pound feline was spotted later in the day -- but it ran off into the woods before it could be captured. Town officials and Fine have been clawing at each other over the bobcat's habit of busting loose. Authorities say if Rocky is caught, it will be taken to a zoo. Fine has already been cited for letting Rocky run free.
