Hit Count

This time of year, the hit count on my blog goes way up, with people looking for funny pumpkin pictures, funny turkey pictures, and funny Santa pictures.

I noted this on my Facebook page recently. (By the way, if any of you have not yet friended me on FB, especially if you will join my Mafia Wars gang, what in blazes are you waiting for? We have thugs to whack!)

Bravo, friend's daughter!!!

Amazing Kreskin, Houdini , Blaine, Copperfield,................. get out of town!!!

You'll probably have to watch this more than once.*

*Thanks, Michel

Speaking of which: Who was Alexander Graham Belsky? (Answer to be found as the first comment to this post.)
