Gilligan's Island ~ The Continuing Story

End of a Beautiful Day

This photo was taken on February 2011. Sunset from our back porch in Hawai'i (Big Island). Enjoy it! It won't happen every day.

Very early meows, my Springtime lilac-rolling Kittens... omy! This Big Cat got up early and wore herself out with a necessary shopping trip... however, she didn’t expect to crash for this long... just reading labels these days takes up about half her time in the grocery store... checking ounces, checking ingredients, checking prices... and it was raining... it was a busy day at the store with lots of farm folks... most likely because it was rainy... so, my darling Big Cats, ready for the end of the world this Saturday? ~mew-sorry, said with tongue in cheek~

However, if there is some major catastrophe, or Armageddon-type event, it could seem like the end of the world.

Gilligan’s Island ~ The Continuing Story

THEME SONG ~ Who could forget?

Just sit right back and you'll hear a tale,
A tale of a fateful trip
That started from this tropic port
Aboard this tiny ship.

The mate was a mighty sailing man,
The skipper brave and sure.
Five passengers set sail that day
For a three hour tour, a three hour tour.

The weather started getting rough,
The tiny ship was tossed,
If not for the courage of the fearless crew
The minnow would be lost, the minnow would be lost.

The ship set ground on the shore of this uncharted desert isle
With Gilligan
The Skipper too,
The millionaire and his wife,
The movie star
The professor and Mary Ann,
Here on Gilligan’s Isle.

So this is the tale of the castaways,
They're here for a long, long time,
They'll have to make the best of things,
It's an uphill climb.

The first mate and the Skipper too,
Will do their very best,
To make the others comfortable,
In the tropic island nest.

No phone, no lights no motor cars,
Not a single luxury,
Like Robinson Crusoe,
As primitive as can be.

So join us here each week my friends,
You're sure to get a smile,
From seven stranded castaways,
Here on "Gilligan's Isle."

So, today, the Kougaress heard a gentleman who was fed up with the Bin Laden fable say, to paraphrase ~ what? Is Bin Laden going to wash up on Gilligan’s Island next?

Yep... and, by the way...


It’s been reported that Bin Laden’s buried-at-sea body has washed up on the beach of Gilligan’s Island. The Professor, who has perfected a resurrection device, was able to use a convenient electrical storm to revive the nemesis of freedom everywhere.

In a scene straight out of Frankenstein the water-logged Bin Laden popped upward. As a result of the lightning jolting through him in tune with a megahertz resonance the Professor is keeping a well-guarded secret, the once dead terrorist’s eyes popped out, large as ping pong balls. It is speculated by Mary Ann that this reaction was also in response to the discovery that no bevy of beautiful virgins awaited his endless carnal plundering.

As the former corpse rose, and took his first stilted steps, Gilligan recalled, “With all that water evaporating real quick, he looked like a steam engine coming to life. Only he did ‘really’ come back to life. At first, I couldn’t see him. Only the shape of his head and he had black eyes. Like the specters in horror movies. Gave me the willies.”

The Skipper added, “Peyew, did he smell like a pile of rotten fish, too. Me and the Howells got the professor’s tonic into him faster ‘n you can say Rumpelstiltskin.”

All the Professor would reveal about his ‘rejuvenation’ tonic is that he brews it using a unique method, and it comes from the bark of an indigenous tree,

“It works, I can tell you” Ginger endorsed. She added after a Hollywood Starlet smile for the camera, “All right, Mr. DeMille, I am definitely ready for my close-up.”

This reporter wonders if Mr. Bin Laden will be ready for his close-up anytime soon?

Across the Fickle Winds of History
By Stephanie Burkhart

Released in 2007, "Across the Fickle Winds of History" was written under my pen name, SG Cardin. It's a time traveling story with strong romantic elements.

From ~

Mars, Mercury and Venus Light Your Fire!

If you've felt indecisive lately, it's time to get down to business. Mars, Mercury and Venus are about to form an alignment with Pluto that's sure to light a fire under you!

On May 20, Mars will be the first to nod toward Pluto as you shift into a more pro-active gear. While Mars wants to dash forward impulsively, Pluto will slow you down and add depth and purpose to your endeavors. You'll gain insight into the root causes of your current situation.

Later that same day, Mercury joins Mars and Pluto, giving you persuasive power to help others understand your perspective. Discussions could turn intense -- with a sprinkling of self-righteous tendencies -- but if you can fight off the urge to have the last word, real answers will emerge to your questions and problems.

After practical matters are taken care of, romantic Venus will cozy up to Mercury and Mars on May 21, and blow a kiss to Pluto as well. At the very least, this is a terrific time to go out, be social and flirt your heart out; at best, it's a time of genuine passion and romance.

Also on May 21, the Sun moves out of Taurus and into bright, restless Gemini. Gemini prefers things to be fun and lighthearted, so you'll feel tempted to dip your toe into every opportunity that arises. Still, it's unlikely that you'll dive in too deeply.

The most powerful weapon is the human soul on fire. ALL POWER TO THE PEOPLE!

~ Happy Flower-blooming days of May ~


And, May you live the dreams of your heart, not in interesting times...

Continuing Island kisses from the Kougar...

That is one fabulous sunset!

Alas, all of this end of the world talk has Darling Diva worried. No matter how many times I reassure her that the odds of it all being over tomorrow are slim to none, she's still going to sleep with one eye open.

((hugs)) and well wishes, in case I'm the one whose wrong. ~wink~

Oh, this stuff is tough on the children. Good vibes to Darling Diva. I well remember when I was in grade school... I think it was third grade... and there was this kid going around on the playground announcing the end of the world, as if it was real. His parents believed it, so, of course, he did too. Well, it gave me pause, and I thought about it a lot. My dad said there was always someone announcing the end of the world... and, you know what, there is.
