Good morning everyone! Time to rise and shine! Grab that cup of coffee, rush out the door only to get stuck in traffic for an hour, and get to work before anyone notices that you're late. Good luck with that if you are in that situation.
I'm back from the dead so to speak. I had to get my computer fixed and that's why I was unable to provide the "Early Bird Special." Hope you all survived. Anyways I'm back and looking forward to the Bengals' season opener against the Browns.
A guy walks into a bar with his pet dog. The bartender politely says, "I'm sorry sir, but no pets allowed."
The man replied, "This is a special dog. Turn on the Browns game and you'll see what I'm talking about."
The bartender, anxious to see what will happen turned on the game. The guy said, "Watch. Whenever Cleveland scores my dog does flips."
The Browns keep scoring field goals and the dog keeps flipping, barking, and jumping.
"Wow! That's one hell of a dog you've got there! What does your dog do when the Browns score a touchdown?"
The man replied, "Good question. I honestly don't know. I've only had him for nine years."
