Gr8 BALLS O' FIRE


I'm kinda grasping at straws here for images to fit the lyrics; making a futile attempt....



You shake my nerves and you rattle my brain
Too much love drives a man insane
You broke my will
But what a thrill
Goodness gracious great balls of fire!


I laughed at love cause I thought it was funny
But you came along and moo00oved me honey
I've changed my mind
This love is fine
Goodness gracious great balls of fire!


Kiss me baby


Wooooo-o-o-o it feels good
Hold me baby
You gotta let me love you like a lover should
You're fine, so kind
I'm gonna tell this world that you're mine mine mine mine

I chew my nails and I twiddle my thumbs


I'm gettin' nervous, honey, but it sure is fun
C'mon baby, you drive me crazy
Goodness gracious great balls of fire!


(piano solo)

Woo-o-o-o-o kiss me baby


Oooo-o-o-o-o feels good
You gotta let me love you like a lover should
You're fine, so kind
I'm gonna tell this world that you're mine mine mine mine

I chew my nails and I twiddle my thumbs


I'm real nervous but it sure is fun
C'mon baby, you're drivin' me crazy
Goodness gracious great balls of fire!

THURSDAY'S TRASH TALK

This may be misconstrued understood as a "tie-in" to the song choice I have posted today. Well, take it as you wish; if you know me well enough, my mind is constantly in the 'gutter' LOL... The sad thing about this is --just a few weeks ago, I posted another 'trash talk' about Arizona's corruption in their law enforcement agencies.

Arizona? And the 'fight to fight' illegal immigrants? What's next....well, read on---
    PHOENIX (Reuters) - A local sheriff resigned as a co-chair of Republican presidential hopeful Mitt R's campaign in Arizona on Saturday after he was accused of threatening a former male lover with deportation to Mexico if he talked about their relationship. In an embarrassing incident for R's struggling campaign, Pinal County Sheriff "Paul B". denied that he or his lawyer made the deportation threat but stepped down from helping the former Massachusetts governor in the border state. "Paul B" acknowledged at a press conference on Saturday that he is gay and that he had a personal relationship with the man making the allegations, whom he identified only as "Jose."


The REST of the story...
No infringement intended


And now, for the fun part...sometimes they're the BEST part!! This time, it certainly is. So humorous, [tho, probably to some it may be considered "R" rated] --thing is this whole spiel could be sad when you think about it. Being that most of the comments are intentionally funny and a play on words, yet it all could be so, well; true. This country has gone to hell in a hand basket when it comes to authoritative figures it seems......

A good sheriff always gets his man in the end.

Fred H. posted: You can't make up better stuff than this. Gays for Mitt! Gotta love it. Figuratively.

Knowledge posted: It looks like the Sheriff will not help Romney get erected.

Boomer posted: There has GOT to be something in the water down in Arizona.

taikibansei posted: The new Republican campaign slogan--"We're the only party willing to get hard on illegal aliens."

joe posted: jose told me that paul was a real dick.

  5. THe photos and the song were right on time this morning...needed some great balls of fire to get me going! And you are completely right, the comments make more interesting reading than the article! Whatever are we going to do about the idiots that we seem to be electing all over the country? I think we should just fire them all and start over again! But then, I am not sure we could do much better - seems that only idiots are interested in running! Have a good day, Anni!

    1. Hi Linda. My view on these dudes in law enforcement and politics...they should just all lock 'em up and throw away the key!!! I really liked your still life images today on your Thursday Challenge.

  8. Those comments have to crack one up.

    But I still think all of this, is sad. Meaning... Campaigning wallowing in "I gotcha'!" Campaigning wallowing in people's sexual preferences. Campaigning, being a joke.

    My beloved Country is becoming a mere shadow of its past self. My beloved Country is wallowing in Socialism and Intellectual Liberalism and being ashamed of itself, and all things which would make Our Founding Fathers turn over in their graves.

    And campaigning is a joke??? -sigh-

    Of course, when the Rep. Party seems fully committed to "shooting itself in the foot" at every turn... To tearing itself apart, instead of taking the golden opportunity being offered it, in the coming Election... Well... I tell ya'... Makes me sick to my stomach.

    I make no bones about being Conservative in my views. Middle of the road Conservative, I suppose it would be called. Not the Bible-Belt-Conservative. The work-hard-with-as-little-government-interference-in-our-lives-as-possible kind of Conservative.

    Oooops, too much soap box time. -grin-

  11. I love your photos and song choice this week. Especially the St. Patty kissing figurines, so pretty.
    I always enjoy the Trash Talk, but this week's is so funny. The comments Are the best part, such great play on words.
    Thank you for your comments on my post. I guess my posts lately are reflecting what I am feeling. With my baby girl soon to be graduating from high school and leaving the nest, I am doing alot of looking back. I guess I am struggling with it too. My babies are growing up and spreading their wings.

  12. Well, Anni, great choice for TTS. The song woke me up, the piano solo (always my favorite part of Great Balls of Fire) got my blood circulating, and the comments on the sheriff and Romney did make me laugh.
    However, the situation between the sheriff and his illegal immigrant lover is actually sad, sad, sad. It's hard to believe anyone could be that nasty. I think "lover" is the wrong word. He was just taking advantage of a person he could victimize. There have been men who victimized women throughout history, and men treated younger men even worse than their brothers treated women.
