Memorial Day is not just another three-day weekend… Memorial Day, originally called Decoration Day… is a day of remembrance for those who have died in our nation’s service.
It is a serious day … the people who have served and lost their lives in the line of duty should be remembered and be the focus of this day.
On the other side of serious… Memorial Day will forever be connected to Niagara Falls and a comedian.
If you have never been to Niagara Falls, it is a destination that has to be personally experienced. Videos and photos cannot convey the magnificence, the spectacular grandness and the overwhelming roar of the Falls. You just have to see and hear the atmosphere of Niagara Falls yourself!
My most memorable visit was over Memorial Day weekend.
We decided to go at the last minute and were lucky enough to procure a hotel room, as it seems that there were a lot of people who thought ahead and actually planned their trip to the Falls. We were given almost the best room in the hotel, ’cause The Presidential Suite was reserved… for the President. Certainly the President would be expected to spend his Memorial Day exploring the Canadian side of Niagara Falls!
This particular hotel had an entire floor of suites named after comedians and we were assured that we were going to spend the next few nights in the very best room after the Presidential Suite… The Bill Cosby Suite!
All I gotta say is this: If Bill Cosby knew that his name was attached to the “grandeur” of the suite named for him, he’d probably buy the entire hotel and demolish it!
The spur-of-the-moment trip to Niagara Falls and the stay in the Bill Cosby Suite was comedically bizarre; just too much to get into for the purpose of this post. Anything that happened, however, was saved by the breathtaking, wondrous, stunning Niagara Falls! Memorial Day will always bring back funny memories of Niagara Falls… and Bill Cosby!
Was shocked to read that MissAndy Cohen was a drug user! YES… MissAndy was a “freeballer”!!! Holy crap! How the hell did he keep his job at CBS News for ten years while in the grips of a demonic drug??? I had to watch the following video to hear exactly how MissAndy was in his office… “freeballin”… with Cybill Shepherd!!!
I’m certain that all of YOU recognized immediately that “freeballin” is NOT “freebasing”… for some reason, my brain stirred up the terms “eight ball” and “freebasing” and equated them into “freeballing”!
NOTE: MissAndy does not do drugs… allegedly!
This guy just gives me the creeps…
AND… while looking for something else Housewife-related, noticed this Google Ad:
NOTE: Health and Discovery channel is airing a marathon today of “Hoarding: Buried Alive”… one of my very favorite shows!
Watching these hoarders makes me feel better about lounging around in my La-z-Boy being fed by my robotic arm and procrastinating about cleaning before the cleaning people come to clean!
