Cold and dreary here, to match my mood: We lost another cat last night. Max, one of our youngest and more robust cats, suddenly took ill this week and died last night. I’m a little bummed about that.
Max as a kitten.
On the upside, I got my Christmas present…
The C. Crane Skywave SSB radio. It gets AM, FM, weather, aviation and shortwave, and can handle SSB broadcasts.
I got into shortwave radio listening about 25 years ago, and haven’t done any in about 20. Haven’t had much time to listen yet.
Anyway, here’s the week in review.
I did the ten #1 songs from each year in the 1980’s. Many of you like the music of the Eighties, so a lot of you liked it. This week, we’re doing “One-Hit Wonders From Your High School Years.” You’ll see my take on it tomorrow.
The featured artist this past week was Frankie Laine, who might be best known for his singing the theme from the early 1960’s Wetern “Rawhide” and the theme from the movie Blazing Saddles.
The one-liner was a quote from Roger Hodgson, keyboardist, vocalist, and primary songwriter for the British progressive rock band Supertramp, about his song “Take The Long Way Home,” a video of which I put into last week’s Week That Was post.
I wrote about my disorganized system of organization and a couple of times I got in trouble for it, and how my life is a lot more organized now that I have and use Evernote.
TV themes were this week’s theme, something I haven’t done much of in recent days. I ran across so many good playlists on YouTube of TV themes that I might not have to do any more.
I wrote about the aches and pains that I’ve been experiencing in my arms since I started aquatic therapy, but in all it’s going quite well. Thanks to the many of you who lent some encouragement. I’m climbing stairs much better than I had been, one of my key objectives.
I think I caused a little confusion last week when I used the expression “in the can.” It’s an expression from the early days of filmmaking that they used when a movie was completed, “the can” being the film cans they used when transporting and storing the movie. Sorry for any confusion.
With that in mind, tomorrow’s post is in the can, and by the time this writing session is over so will several other posts for this week. I’m not planning any major departure from the usual routine, but you never know what I’ll do.
