The Week That Was Is Comin’ To Town!

Here’s Johnny Cash for Lionel Trains, the big trains for little hands!

I never knew the difference between O and HO gauge trains until Sheldon explained it on The Big Bang Theory.

The Week That Was

Everyone wish my uncle, Jack Connelly, a happy birthday! (It was on the 20th, which I wasn’t sure about.) Jack, Happy Birthday, and thanks for reading my blog. I appreciate it!

The big run-up to Christmas is nearly complete, so let’s have a look back at the past week.

The week before, the prompt was “boys,” so this past week’s prompt was “girls,” giving me a chance to play “West End Girls” by The Pet Shop Boys.

Week 3 of the Xmas Music Xtravaganza featured more humorous Christmas and seasonal songs.

Mindi Abair was the featured artist. This week will be a special Two for Tuesday, so stay tuned.

This week’s quote was from Leslie Charteris, author of “The Saint” novels and main writer for the 1960’s series that starred Roger Moore.

I did two of these this past week, because the original ended up coming out on Wednesday and I needed one for Thursday. The Wednesday one was about driving in the South, while the Thursday one was a list of some of my favorite quotes.

This week’s survey was from WHFM in Rochester, New York’s survey of December 21, 1969.

The prompt “tin” reminded me of the Latin version of “Jingle Bells” (“Tinniat“) and the constant ringing in my ears.

Jon Bon Jovi defeated Kelly Clarkson on “Please Come Home For Christmas.”

Tomorrow is the last week for the Xmas Music Xtravaganza, and I’ll do a few more amusing songs, because Two for Tuesday will have a special Christmas-themed presentation. Aside from that, no big surprises.

Thanks to:

And that’s it for this edition of The Week That Was. Merry Christmas, and I’ll see you in the funny papers!
