Stamp Collecting for Cash

 Austin's a fan of the Man in Black, but who knew the guys are taking Johnny's song to heart so much.

Because of their running here there and everywhere, while they play catch me if you can,  it looks more and more like this could be their theme song.

I've been everywhere, man.
I've been everywhere, man.
Crossed the desert's bare, man.
I've breathed the mountain air, man.
Of travel I've had my share, man.
I've been everywhere.
 
 I've been to:
Reno, Chicago, Fargo, Minnesota,
Buffalo, Toronto, Winslow, Sarasota,
Wichita, Tulsa, Ottawa, Oklahoma,
Tampa, Panama, Mattawa, La Paloma,
Bangor, Baltimore, Salvador, Amarillo,
Tocapillo, Baranquilla, and Perdilla, I'm a killer.

I've been everywhere, man.
I've been everywhere, man.
Crossed the desert's bare, man.
I've breathed the mountain air, man.
Of travel I've had my share, man.
I've been everywhere.

I've been everywhere, man.
I've been everywhere, man.
Crossed the desert's bare, man.
I've breathed the mountain air, man.
Of travel I've had my share, man.
I've been everywhere.

I've been everywhere, man.
I've been everywhere, man.
Crossed the desert's bare, man.
I've breathed the mountain air, man.
Of travel I've had my share, man.
I've been everywhere.




And now Austin could give a stamp of approval with the newly announced Johnny Cash postal stamp.



Remember big guy, lick it before you stick it.
Wait are we still talking about stamps?

OMG always has been and continues to be a place to discuss Jake and Austin and their relationship.

If you feel JIS this not the place for you. As I have said many times before there are many other places where you may go to find people who agree with you. Staying here just to argue isn't going to get people to engage with you.

There will be differences of opinion at OMG, that is reality of a gathering of people. But it is not a place to belittle, attack, or mock people for their opinions. There is no need for it and life's just too short to waste time on that.

Oh and the last bit of the post? I finally got a way to work in a blues song.

I don't think much filming for Prisoners today. There have been severe storms in the Atlanta area, with even tornadoes.

Congratulations to Jim Nabors!

HONOLULU (AP) — Actor Jim Nabors says marrying his longtime male partner doesn’t change anything about their relationship — he just wanted it to be formally acknowledged.

‘‘I just wanted it legal,’’ the 82-year-old actor best known as Gomer Pyle in ‘‘The Andy Griffith Show’’ told The Associated Press on Wednesday.

Nabors married 64-year-old Stan Cadwallader in Seattle on Jan. 15. Nabors says they have been partners for 38 years.

Nabors said they flew from Honolulu just for the short ceremony and were married in a hotel room by a judge friend who drove up from Olympia, Wash.

Nabors said he’s not an activist but feels strongly that gay marriage should be a right for everyone.

‘‘I think every person on this earth has a choice of who they want to spend their life with,’’ he said.

News of Nabors’ marriage was first reported by Hawaii News Now. Nabors told Hawaii News Now he’s been open about being gay with co-workers and friends but hadn’t acknowledged it to the media before. He said he’s not ashamed of people knowing, he just didn’t tell people because it was ‘‘such a personal thing.’’

The couple met in 1975 when Cadwallader was a Honolulu firefighter.

Nabors told the AP that Cadwallader began working for him long ago and took care of his business affairs.

‘‘He’s my best friend,’’ Nabors said.

Nabors became an instant success when he joined ‘‘The Andy Griffith Show’’ in spring 1963. The character of Gomer Pyle — the unworldly, lovable gas pumper who would exclaim ‘‘Gollllll-ly!’’ — proved so popular that in 1964 CBS starred him in ‘‘Gomer Pyle, U.S.M.C.’’

In the spinoff, which lasted five seasons, Gomer left his hometown of Mayberry to become a Marine recruit. His innocence confounded his sergeant, the irascible Frank Sutton.

Gay marriage became legal in Washington state last month. Several other states allow it, but Nabors said he picked Washington because he didn’t want to travel too far from his Hawaii home.

‘‘I like the weather,’’ he said. ‘‘Still, I froze my butt off there.’’

Jess, no worries. I, too, was talking to a few others. Just a Thought's comments last night were very much appreciated.

I love when we get new people on here. It's exciting. Near to impossible to get on here during the day anymore unless it's on the ol' lunch hour and even then, it's via cell phone. Not fun! (Destiny knows what I'm talking about) And my lunch hours are spent writing as much as I can!!

I'm at a very pivotal part of my story and I'm very invigorated about it.

Well, we dodged a huge bullet here last night. We were supposed to get 2-4 inches with plunging temperatures, blowing snow, blah blah blah. I just knew we were doomed so I drove all the way to my place to go get my snow boots and warmer clothes.

All for Naught!!! Cannot believe it. Although it is absolutely freezing out there. Couldn't be happier about the outcome. I'd rather freeze than be slip sliding around.

prairiegirl said...

I could not be happier than I am for Jim Nabors. That is fantastic.

Now at the other end of that spectrum, we have this nonsense. This is unbelievable. Is this the new MO? Part of the playbook? I just have to shake my head. I used to think Bradley Cooper was pretty interesting and attractive.

Do they expect intelligent people to buy this?

Shirtless Bradley Cooper causes rukus at SoulCycle

“Silver Linings Playbook” star Bradley Cooper got ladies spinning out of control at the SoulCycle studio in TriBeCa yesterday morning. Cooper showed up at the 7:30 class for an early workout. “He was trying to be incognito and wore a long-sleeved shirt for most of the ride,” an onlooker tells us. However, Cooper ripped off his shirt near the end of class, causing a ruckus among the mostly female riders. “Girls were literally falling off their bikes,” said our source. “At the end of the class, a few fans had the guts to go up to him, and he was super gracious. He introduced himself, shook their hands and even congratulated the girls on a great class.”

prairiegirl said...

LOL. Look at that. Same TriBeCa location. Same "he's one of us". Same "ripping off of the shirt and causing bedlam" MO.

You know, this going shirtless business is just a big laugh. As I've said before, I belonged to fitness clubs for years and I never saw shirtless guys, tank tops yes, but shirts are mostly required. For one thing, it's gross in a club. You do not want someone dripping all over the machine, on the floor. It's not sexy when you're working out, it's a hygiene issue, sorry to burst that little bubble

And I looked up several sites and their views on going shirtless at clubs and it is nearly unanimously frowned upon, even by men.

So this idea of Jake and now Bradley Cooper ripping their shirts off to the tune of fainting and gasping gals is pretty amusing writing to say the least. Coop's people really got theatrical. "literally falling off their bikes". LOLLLL

Now talk about a safety issue on top of a hygiene issue.

Good for Jim Nabors. Getting married and coming out at 82. Never too late:-) I wonder if Jake will come out before he is 82:-):-):-)

destiny said...

I didn't even know Jim Manors was still alive. Nice to see him get married and talk about it.

Jake goes to SoulCycle Union Sq. Not Tribeca.

As I've said before, I belonged to fitness clubs for years and I never saw shirtless guys, tank tops yes, but shirts are mostly required. For one thing, it's gross in a club.

SoulCycle isn't a fitness club; it's a boutique spin class and as such the rules are different. Go watch some videos of what it's all about.
