You know your burglary has gone bad when your only option is to call in a GETAWAY TOW TRUCK to help you out.
Last week, a man from
But when he tried to get away, his truck got stuck in some MUD. He tried a bunch of things to free it . . . including dumping rock salt under his tires, sliding planks of wood underneath, and even jamming a throw rug down there. But nothing worked.
So finally, he called a tow truck. He told the dispatcher he was helping his aunt move . . . which is why he had all the stuff in his truck . . . and got stuck.
The tow truck driver got his pickup free, but thought it seemed suspicious. He got even MORE suspicious after he unhooked his tow truck and the guy peeled out ACROSS THE LAWN instead of taking the driveway. So he called the cops.
They tracked the pickup back to its owners . . . who turned out to be the burglar's parents. They told the cops their son just got out of jail a few days earlier. The police are still looking for him.
You may have noticed BRANTLEY GILBERT is always wearing chains and dog tags and brass knuckles. It's a lot of heavy metal . . . and it must be tough to get through airport security, right?
Apparently not, because Brantley has been CHEATING THE SYSTEM. First of all, he doesn't take it all onto the plane. He tosses it into his luggage at the airport and then checks his bags just like everyone else.
But he also knows how to disguise certain items so they don't look menacing.
He says, quote, "I got a pair of brass knuckles that has a knob on it, like, you can use it for a belt buckle, and I hook it to a belt, and that's how I get my brass knuckles everywhere."
A movie about the life of GEORGE JONES is in development . . . with George's wife
The script doesn't gloss things over either. It covers George's brilliant music career as well as his "descent into alcohol and drug abuse" . . . and then his eventual recovery. No word yet when production will start. (Billboard)
DARIUS RUCKER is in the middle of his "True Believers" Tour . . . but he's already talking to SHERYL CROW about co-headlining together in the future.
Darius says, quote, "I said 'yeah,' and I think she said 'yeah' too. So now it's in the hands of all the booking agents, but I hope it happens." (Taste of Country)
If you're like most people, Monday is your least favorite day of the week. But according to "Forbes" magazine, it doesn't have to be. Here are four ways to make your Mondays more tolerable.
#1) Dress Up. You probably can't do anything about what you've got on TODAY. But wearing your best outfit makes you more confident. And just looking like you're ready for work tends to make you FEEL more ready for work.
#2) Do Something Nice for Someone. Or do something nice for the whole office, like bringing donuts to work. Research has shown that one of the best ways to improve your mood is to make someone
#3) Prepare for Monday on Friday. If there's something at work that you dread doing on Mondays, get a head start on Friday if you can.
That way you'll lighten your workload. And you'll be able to relax all weekend, because you'll know you have an easier Monday than usual ahead of you.
#4) Make a List of Things You're Excited for This Week. It doesn't even have to be work-related. Just write down three things you're looking forward to . . . like your favorite TV show, or having drinks with friends.
That way, you'll remind yourself of some GOOD stuff that's coming up, and you won't just concentrate on how awful Mondays are.
In fact, some people suggest ALWAYS making plans for Monday night. Because then you'll start thinking of Mondays as a "special" day, not just the beginning of the workweek. (Forbes)
