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.
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!
