This edition of The Week That Was is brought to you by Arrid Super Spray with chlorophyll. Don’t be half safe, be Arrid safe!
It's been a busy week here. Of course, we're getting ready for the 10th Annual A to Z Challenge, which starts four weeks from tomorrow. Signups have already started! If you haven’t yet, there’s plenty of time. Just follow this link that takes you to the form.
In other news, I’ve finished my taxes. I use the H&R Block program, and it’s quite easy, if you’re looking for a tax program.
Anyway, here’s the summary for the week.
The prompt was “harmony/melody/music,” and I chose Three Dog Night’s “Just An Old Fashioned Love Song,” their second Paul Williams song.
Freebie week, so I continued my series of #40’s, this week for 1964.
Trumpeter Cindy Bradley was the featured artist.
This week’s one-liner came from an unidentified teenager who Mary heard on her way out of church last week. I had planned another one, but this one was just too good to put off.
I generally stay away from the prompts that ask for a list, but this one was easy, so I listed five of my current favorites.
We visited WFOX in Milwaukee for their survey from March 1, 1958.
The prompt “cele-” reminded me of the book The Celestine Prophecy, which reminded me of Dan Brown’s books in which the Jesuits were the bad guys, which reminded me of rumors I’ve heard that my old parish from the North Side of Chicago might close and the entire physical plant razed for whatever it is they need the land for. Then I remembered the fallout shelter that sat under the parish and, as I recall, most of the 1300 block of Loyola Avenue. It was real stream of consciousness writing, no matter what you’ve heard.
My current Battle of the Bands pits Phil Keaggy against Rod Stewart in a battle over Bob Dylan’s “If Not For You.” It promises to be just as tight a race as my last two have been, so, if you haven’t voted in it yet, you have until next Saturday. Remember, the only requirements to vote in Battle of the Bands is a pair of ears and an opinion.
Pretty much business as usual here as I start getting ready for A to Z (I may pop up over on the A to Z Challenge blog).
