This edition of The Week That Was is brought to you by Crayola Crayons. They work on brains, not batteries!
Long before Gameboy and Nintendo and a thousand games on smartphones, there were Crayola Crayons. If you had the box of 64, with the sharpener on the back, life didn’t get any better.
Moving a little slowly today. I’m over the UTI, thanks to Cipro (I finished the prescription on Friday, and got it refilled just in case), so I’m getting back to normal. Here’s the summary for the week.
We had done numbers the week before, and a suggestion from Uncle Jack gave me the idea to do units of measure. Strangely, I missed units of measure that dealt with time, so those will likely come up again, maybe as early as tomorrow.
This week’s encore performance was from Wes Montgomery, who may have turned out to be one of the first “Smooth Jazz” guitar players had he lived a few years past 1968. A great straight-ahead jazz player who gradually worked pop music into his repertoire.
I uttered Wednesday’s one-liner after doing something (and I can’t remember what) that impressed me. It might have had something to do with GIMP, with which I created the graphic.
“Hazy” was the prompt and it made me think of a song by Nat King Cole, which made me think of another by Jimi Hendrix, which might have been where the essay went had I not pulled it back on track.
This week’s survey once again came from Radio Veronica, from 1974. Their Top 10 was much different from the Top 10 here, which made it interesting.
The prompt “T, tee, tea” brought to mind a delightful little song from the early ’70’s that I hadn’t thought about in years, so I talked about that.
Nothing out of the ordinary. Tomorrow’s theme on M4 is “songs in sign language.” The requirement is for two songs, so you know I’ll be doing somthing else, too. Another encore for Two for Tuesday, a humorous one-liner, and replies to prompts. And who knows what else?
- Uncle Jack Connelly
- Anyone I missed
- Everyone who left a “like.”
And that’s it for this edition of The Week That Was. See you in the funny papers!
