The “Dog Days Are Ending” Week That Was

This edition of The Week Tha Was is brought to you by the Magic Chef Double Oven, available now at your local gas company or dealer. Gas makes a big difference (costs less, too)!

I guess the utility companies have always done a certain amount of marketing for the appliance dealers. It’d be the last place I’d think of to get an appliance. By the way, can anyone figure out what the lovely Ms. Falkenberg’s first name is? I thought it was Jane, but the more I listen the more it soundds like “Jace.”

The Week That Was

This week was a little less hectic than they’ve been recently, so why am I so tired? Very weird… here’s the summary for the week.

I featured “Run Through The Jungle” by Creedence Clearwater Revival as my song addressing the theme of “fear.” Arlee said that he never associated the song with Vietnam until he read my writeup; to be honest, neither did I.

Having had such good luck when I told iTunes to build me a playlist for the rock tunes in my collection, I did the same for jazz. People seemed to like the smooth jazz better than the more straight-ahead stuff, which I expected.

This week’s encore artist was Jerry Reed, CGP. We know Jerry from his humorous songs and from his performances in the Smokey and The Bandit movies, but he’s also a pretty spectacular guitarist.

Found another humorous one-liner on Reddit that I shared. For the record, I love sausage, and I don’t care what they put in it. Within reason, of course.

I found myself babysitting my computer as it applied what it called “critical maintenance,” so I wrote my nine lines (one of the prompts we were given for the week) about that and about what I had originally intended on writing about, what I thought school would be like in a hundred years. Again, read the books of John Taylor Gatto if you want my honest opinion of education, and remember, I never had children I had to push through school. Maybe I’ll actually do post about it sometime.

We went back Down Under to focus on the survey from 2UW in Sydney, NSW, Australia for this week in 1958.

First, congratulations again to Pamela at A Chronical Of Hope for winning the annual badge contest. My design didn’t come close, sadly, but hey, I tried. Anyway, the prompt was “notice,” so I examined the peculiar phrase “notice is hereby given,” a lawyerism if ever there was one.

No big surprises are planned, but ya never know.

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