The “Happy Birthday, George” Week That Was

This edition of The Week That Was is brought to you by delicious Sunbeam bread. It’s better!

Today would have been George Harrison’s 75th birthday. Just seeing that in writing is a little freaky. Anyway, in honor of the day…

Here’s the summary for the week.

Freebie week was “Artists from Chicago” day for me. I had so much fun it was also my theme for Friday. And maybe in the future. There were a lot of musical acts that came from Chicago.

Little Richard was the featured artist. We’re getting close to the end of the “Baby Boom” artists, so I have to figure out a new theme for Two for Tuesday. If anyone has a suggestion, let me know.

The one-liner was from a story about the parish politics we once dealt with and a situation years later where I was able to use one of the things I heard then in a different context, which made Mary laugh. Mary says to tell you we had made it to IHOP for breakfast before I said the line. She remembers better than I do.

I discussed five things I’m enjoying right now, which included a story that made me laugh really hard.

In the latest battle, the panel decided that Astrud gilberto sang “Fly Me To The Mooon” better than Angelina Jordan. Next battle this Thursday, so stay tuned!

Another one of those weeks where I didn’t exactly follow the directions to the letter, instead rambling on about music about doors, or by The Doors. Hope I’m not in too much trouble.

As previously mentioned, look for a Battle of the Bands on Thursday. Tomorrow’s theme for M4 is “Themes from movies and TV shows,” which should be an easy one for me. The rest of the week will be pretty normal, as I have not one, but two dental appointments, one with my periodontist tomorrow and another with my dentist on Wednesday. Plus, I have to get cracking on my A to Z posts (both for my blog and the Challenge blog). I haven’t figured out exactly what my theme is for this year, but I’ll know by the time I start writing. I’ll have to, won’t I?

Thanks to Michele, Birgit, Mark, Joey, CalensAriel, Ally, Eugenia, Arlee, Janet, 15AndMeowing, May, Kat, Dan, Ed Thierbach, J-Dub, Marie, Uncle Jack Connelly, Alana, Joyce, Patrick, Cathy, Mike, and everyone who left a “like.”

And that’s it for this edition of The Week That Was. See you in the funny papers!

  1. George Harrison would be 75? I don’t know what to make of that. I’m happy that you told us, of course– because it’s better to know these things than to continue to live with the illusion that we’re still young. 😉
