Hello loyal diary entry readers! I am back once again to fill you in on some tail wagging good news! My brother Demon Flash Bandit is a Dogster daily diary pick once again. Congrads Demon! (See, I can actually be nice and show praise Demon, you could learn a thing or two). I am in a good mood today and I hope everyone else is as jolly as I am right now. I could hug the Pooh Bear right out of someone right now! I know what you dogs are thinking, "Angel Zoom Smokey, why are you so happy?" Well, I have great news. I just got a letter from Publishers Clearing House informing me that I may be a millionaire! A MILLIONAIRE!!!! Just think what a dog can do with that kind of money!!! I am literally salivating this moment just thinking about the kind of foods I can afford to buy and eat with that money. I might get a few things for the humans as well. Jeff collects toys, perhaps I will buy him some Lincoln Logs. Lincoln Logs, of course, get their name from the famous human President Abraham Lincoln's massive and impressive stool samples (hence the name "logs"). On a side note, I think I have overheard of some humans sitting on a stool. All I can say is that I hope those humans had a change of pants with them. Anyway, the toy Lincoln Logs are actually made of wood. That makes the toy fun for Jeff and fun for me to chew on! Jeff also seems to collect dust if his room is any indication. I am not sure what I would get for mom. I think I would get her a poster of me to hang on the wall. Talk about the gift that keeps on giving. Anyway, I will soon be rich my fellow dogs, but never fear, I will still be the same old Angel Zoom Smokey I've always been. Money won't change me. It will, however, make it easier for me to get out of jail time for my many puppy slaps of justice.
My brother Jeff is happy because Tim Robbins has joined the cast of the upcoming film "Green Lantern". Jeff is a fan of Tim Robbins and loves the comic book Green Lantern. He is also a major nerd. The only reason I am sharing this information with you loyal readers is because I too am a fan of Mr. Robbin's work. I loved him in his Oscar winning role in the epic masterpiece "Howard the Duck". One of the few birds I will ever stick up for.
On the subject of movies, my brother told a funny story about this film he watched on UPN years ago entitled "Alien Abduction: Incident in Lake County". I guess UPN aired this "special" when Jeff was young and it scared him. I went on the computer and went to YouTube to see if I could find it and sure enough, I did. I CAN NOT believe this scared my brother when he was a kid. BOL Seriously, he told me that UPN promoted it as a piece of footage that had not been proven to be a hoax. He added that after UPN aired the "special" footage, they made sure to include credits that included a cast list. A CAST LIST!!! You have to hand it to networks in the '90s, they knew how to lie to an audience. Anyway, I guess one of the individuals "abducted" by these aliens (Aaron Pearl) has appeared in shows such as "Battlestar Galactica", "Fringe", "The Lone Gunmen", "The Outer Limits", "The Twilight Zone", "Stargate SG-1", "Smallville", "Dead Like Me", "The Dead Zone", "The L Word", and "Supernatual" in addition to appearing in such films as "The Pink Panther", "War", "White Noise 2: The Light", "X2: X-Men United", and "X-Men: The Last Stand". I am very happy to know that inbetween anal probes, aliens make sure the men and women they abduct have enough shore leave on Earth to pursue a film career. That really warms my heart.
Anyway, I still fail to understand human behavior but I'm growing to enjoy the unexpected. Just the other night I heard a man say "I once thought I was poor, till I met a man who had no feet. Then I realized how unlucky I was for having feet. Why you might ask? Because the man with no feet didn’t have to spend his hard earned money on shoes! Some people have all the luck!" That's something to think about, some food for thought if you will. Well, I better get mushing guys. I'll be sure to bark or howl at you again real soon! Take care everyone!

Mom doesn't believe in Aliens- or UFO's, either. Way back when (as in the last century), when the Wright brothers made history by proving that humans could fly like the BIRDS, humans kept up and invented the myriad of flying devices- the first airplane (which crashed very soon after take-off), then onto the Blimp, as in Goodyear, the gliders, the hot air baloons, the helocopters, the747's, the sonic jets, and all the nifty "top secret" flying devices the militaries of the U.S. and Europe were inventing.
Well, way back, maybe 60 or 70 years ago, you have to remember humans weren't like they are today.
Nosiree, many were downright ignorant and non-technical. They still believed in the tales of old, the fables, bigfoot and such, and seeing those bright lights in they sky made them think "Spaceship"- "From another world"- and "Aliens from another world must be invading us!"
But that's roughly the time that the military started with the "weather ballons", which eventually led to the sattellites which everyone depends on today for everything.
Back in the 1950's, the military even test- drove circular flying devices, which would best be described as a "hoovercraft" today, because it could never get more than a few feet off the ground, much less fly at 20,000 feet!
Well, thanks to de-classifying the old footage of these military devices, some which did fly very high, with lights all around them, were seen by primative humans and declared UFO's.
Hence the Alien abduction stories. When some folks just didn't come home after a night on the town, they had to make up SOME excuse for where they were............
"I got abducted......" Donno where the probe thingee came into it. Added details for believability, I suppose.
Mom remembers Green Lantern- and Green Arrow, too. Good for Tim Robbins. Have always liked his work in the very scary movie, "Jacob's Ladder".
I wish someone with talent would do mom's favorite, "Swamp Thing". The comic book series was unbelievable. The movie was awful. Too comic-booky.
Ah, one can only dream.
If mom sold her comic book collection, we'd be in beef jerky up to our ears! But, NOOOOO! Besides, they'd have to be in mint condition, and except for a few, they've all been well loved and read, and probably wouldn't fetch much on the market for serious collectors.
