Open Post: Hosted By The Raccoon Who Went For A Ride-Along With The Cops

I think the citizens of Colorado Springs, CO (aka the land of The Mad Pooper) can all heave out a sigh of relief knowing that their neighborhoods are being safeguarded by this furry-faced defender of the law. The Denver Post reported on this little guy who decided to hitch a ride on Officer Christopher Frabbiele’s patrol car as he was on the way to a call for a serious car accident. Eventually, Officer Frabbiele pulled over and the raccoon’s free ride was over. It hopped off and ran away. Colorado Springs PD even posted about it on their Facebook page.

Officer Ringtail is probably the best partner that Officer Frabbiele has ever had! Although I’m not sure that his passenger was exactly thrilled about his sudden journey. It looks like he’s clinging to that windshield for dear life and probably have been happier knocking over trash cans.

    How Lucille was discovered:

    “Theatrical agent Sylvia Halo recognized Lucille on the street from a billboard she had posed for to advertise Chesterfield cigarettes. MGM had chosen twelve poster girls to appear in a film called Roman Scandals, and one of the girls had dropped out last minute. Lucille was hired on the spot by Sam Goldwyn’s New York agent, and was off to Hollywood three days later.”

    I don’t think Crowther wrote that, but his review helped doom the film. It was the first time Judy’s acting and even singing had been called into question. The real trouble was that by 1963, Judy was no longer really a mainstream attraction, but the object of The Ghey’s fierce worship of her as a goddess past her prime.

  8. Cuteness!

  9. Awwwww 😊😊

  10. Maybe take a class at a local college or university? I’m making friends at school with people who are in their early 20s (I’m 47). I still have my friends from my old job, too. It makes sense that we usually meet people at work because that’s where we spend most of our adult lives. I agree with what others have said here, if you do some activities, your social circle will expand : )

  11. I love this photo. She was always gorgeous, but i like her more natural brows here!

  12. you cutie! cannot wait for the wedding.

  13. 14 year old me, (Hair dyed dark brown) I was
    a bad ass. https://uploads.disquscdn.c

  14. Bosley Crowther’s review apparently summed up the entire movie (inc. the title) with “Oh Judy, if only you had!”

  15. I stay far, FAR away from them when I see them, which is only a couple of times a month. https://uploads.disquscdn.c

  16. LOL taken from a bathroom and you ask holy shit….xoxo…now that is a potty people.

  17. There’s no bad time to administer the testicle clamps.

  18. I could wait for an excuse to use this gif, but I don’t want to wait that long to share something so perfect.

  19. As you said, just be careful.

  20. Couldn’t agree more. She was a force to reckon with.

    Yep, he deserved it. “I Could Go On Singing” is the gold standard film of Judy Cultists, as opposed to mere fans. The reason is that all her other pictures were good, excellent, or (A Star is Born) a great achievement. “ICGOS” is the only pic where Judy was on the way down, and the bad material taken very seriously, which can mean only one thing: camp. Cultists have crome over that film for years, and certainly know the truly awful lyrics of the title song… I’m guessing that was the number he chose.

  22. Holy crap! Yeah, it takes experience to know a person and the deeply religious I always give a sideeye, they seem to have the most skeletons in the closet. I’m agnostic and a cynic, so it takes alot to break down my walls. No matter how you meet someone, create space and time to get to know them. But I did meet plenty of decent guys just playing the religious game because I suspect they felt less threatened in a church setting. And usually churches will have singles groups and/or activities for singles. It’s not everyone’s cup of tea, but not a terrible place to meet people
