The Feast of St. Casimir Week That Was

This edition of The Week That Was is brought to you by Peter Paul Almond Joy. Indescribably delicious!

I might have already done an Almond Joy commercial, but this one just screams “Early Sixties!”

I feel like I’ve accomplished something: I settled on a theme for the A to Z Challenge and wrote about five entries yesterday. Don’t forget, sign-ups for this year’s Challenge start tomorrow. Check the Challenge blog for all the details. Here’s the summary for last week.

The theme for the day was theme songs from movies and TV shows, one of my favorite all-time themes.

The featured artist was Frankie Valli and The 4 Seasons. Everyone seems to like them, from what I gather.

I used a quote I found on a blog that I thought was a perfect description of the recently-concluded Winter Olympics.

Voting on my current Battle of the Bands is open through this Wednesday. I’ll announce the winner on Thursday. If you haven’t voted, there’s still plenty of time.

I used the prompt “friendly” to talk about Friendly Bob Adams, the mascot (for lack of a better term) for General Finance, who sponsored radio broadcasts of White Sox games in the Sixties.


For no other reson than I had no better ideas and it was getting late, I chose ten “surf” tunes at random.


Given prompt “fine,” I remembered that “fine” was the Italian word for “end” and is used in music to denote the end of a song, so we had a little music theory lesson.

As I continue writing my entries for the A to Z Challenge, I have notrhing special planned. It’s freebie day tomorrow, and I have to pick an artist for Tuesday. I have a good one-liner picked for Wednesday, and as usual will have to wait on prompts for Thursday and Saturday. I’ll wing it on Friday, as usual.

Thanks to Wendy, Dan, John Howell, JoAnna, Mark, J-Dub, Birgit, Jo, Martha, Eugenia, Janet, Uncle Jack Connelly, Arlee, Mary B, Stephen, Jim, Frank, Mary M, “Around My Kitchen Table”, Cathy, Joey, “15 And Meowing”, Fandango, “Mommy In Color”, Jeffrey, Alana, Michele, Stacy, Cathy Keisha, Ally Bean, 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. I don’t remember Almond Cluster. I would have liked that much better since I hate coconut. Nice recap again, John. Looking forward to your A to Z. You always have such interesting topics.

  2. Now I just have to eat an almond joy. I already broke down and got a cinnamon twist at the grocery store as my cheat but I think today is a twofer :). I am going to try the A/Z challenge so I wrote A last night. I still don’t really understand the theme part so maybe my A will be a no go if I don’t get a clue before 4/1. I just keep thinking A is for Apple, B is for Bear but that’s not a theme.

      1. I was just starting to reply when this came across. The only real requirement is that you do the alphabet in order and post each day (except Sunday, except for the 1st this year). Just have fun!

  3. Don’t like Almond Joy because I don’t like coconut but that is definitely a sixties commercial. I guess I will have to settle for a large Caffe Mocha at Starbucks. Sigh

  4. I will be joining the A to Z again even though I falter visiting everyone. Love Wipe Out and that brought back memories that made me smile. I am go8ng to start writing my posts now instead of April which is wrong.

    1. Writing them in April is wrong, or writing them before April is wrong? Nice thing is, there’s no wrong way to do it. Most people write the posts ahead of time so they have more time to visit the others, but it’s up to you.
