The “Been Up Since 5:30” Week That Was

Here’s Buster Keaton for Country Club malt lager.

The Week That Was

I’ve been up since dark-thirty this morning. Mary had to leave to drive up into the mountains to teach a class on Estonian knitting, and since I need her help to put my compression sleeve on, I had to get up with her. So I’m half-awake while I do this. On another score, I think I settled the issue of posts not being passed from Blogger to WordPress. We should know if I did this evening. Here’s the summary for the week.

We’re almost finished with the A to Z Challenge. Here are the entries for this past week.

Z tomorrow, then we’re done.

Earth Day had been the previous Saturday, so we were charged with playing songs about Earth. I changed the idea and instead gave you ten songs by that great Seventies band, Rare Earth.

Tuesday’s featured artist was Freddy “Boom Boom” Cannon.

The one-liner was a quote from Allan Sherman.

The challenge was to base a post on the word “break,” so I riffed on that a bit.

I played your suggested booze songs, 14 of them altogether.

I was a bit frazzled after dealing with our continuing problems with IFTTT and Zapier, so I griped about that for a while.

Pretty much the same as it always is. We’ll be getting back to normal after the A to Z Challenge.

Thanks to Hilary, Birgit, Calensariel, Marie, Ally, Tizzy, Diedre, J-Dub, Martha, Hester, Eugenia, Arlee, Tara, Deborah, Colette, Elen, Paula, Eric, Cathy, Joey, Mark, Uncle Jack Connelly, Dan, Ed Thierbach, JoAnna, Barbara, Fandango, Mike, Morgan, Atherton, Alana, 15andMeowing, Stacy, Cathy Keisha, Iain, Jacqui, Jamie, Donna, everyone who left a “like,” anyone I forgot, and anyone who commented on Facebook.

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

  1. oh my goodness, I was enthralled with the commercials…and yes, I remembered all except one. Not saying which one either.


  2. I love Buster! That is early to have to get up at 5:30 and I wonder what Eastonian Knitting-is. One more day tomorrow and I’m glad you fixed the problem


    1. Estonian knitting is just regular knitting with a couple of features that are specifically done by knitters in Estonia. Mary is Lithuanian, another of the Baltic states (Latvia is the third), so she got interested in it, and is quite good at it now.

      Buster stayed active for a long time and did a lot of commercials in the 50’s. He was a very funny guy and his sense of physical comedy was amazing.
