The Almost-Middle-Of-August Week That Was

This edition of The Week That Was is brought to you by Buddy-L all metal toy trucks!

Five different trucks and I had trouble keeping up…

The Week That Was

I’ve had to start doing things a little differently as far as setting up my posts because I’m no longer using IFTTT to post to Facebook and Twitter. The WordPress Publicize tool passes a lot of text to those two social media, and they in turn publish all the text. I’ve learned how to limit it, which is a good thing, but those of you reading the blog by mail might see a reduced amount of the posts and have to click on a tag to read the rest. Sorry about that…

Anyway, here’s the summary for the week.

The prompt was “drink,” and my reply was “There’s A Tear In My Beer” by Hank Williams, Senior and Junior. The video and the song won a lot of well-deserved awards.

For freebie day, I chose ten songs from my burgeoning music collection of over 7000 songs and had my playlist. I kept it down to just the songs marked “Rock” in the collection. Maybe I’ll do jazz next…

Julie London was this week’s encore artist.

My one-liner was taken from the Subreddit r/showerthoughts and was a statement about paying lots of money to see at least a half hour of commercials before a movie that has lots of product placement ads in it. I think many, maybe most, of us prefer to stay home and watch the movie on Netflix, given the cost of a movie these days.

With the prompt “new,” I wrote about my soon-to-be-completed dental work, which, God willing, will be completed this Wednesday. Prayers and good thoughts would be appreciated.

The Top Ten this week was from 1957. It came to us from CKCH, a middle-of-the-road station in Hull, Quebec that went off the air about 25 years ago.

The prompt this week was “bodily function,” so I talked about my two favorites, burping and farting.

I’ll have a Battle of the Bands this Wednesday. Tomorrow, songs with animals in the title. Another encore performance on Tuesday, one-liner on Wednesday, survey on Friday, and whatever Kat, Linda and Helen come up with for Thursday, Saturday and Sunday, respectively. You know, the usual.

Thanks to:

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