The Week That Was

Happy Easter, everyone! My mother loved Easter, I think because Jelly Bird Eggs (which are different from jelly beans, which she also liked) would be available. I inherited my mother’s sweet tooth, I think.

Last week was the third week of the A to Z Challenge. Things seem to be moving much more quickly than they used to. On the plus side, I’ve gotten all my posts written for the Challenge blog and all my remaining posts are written and sitting in the queue. On the minus side, I’m a bit behind on my visiting. As God is my witness, I’ll catch up there.

As always, it’s been busy here. Here’s the summary for the week.

“Cold/ice/freeze” make me think of liquor, and I presented two songs for your listening enjoyment, The Kingston Trio’s “Scotch And Soda” and June Christy’s “Something Cool.” The latter put me in a June Christy mood all week. I ain’t complaining.

Our assignment was to play music that particularly moved us. I found a few examples, and I’ve been thinking of many more. One day maybe I’ll use that as a theme for a freebie Monday. You have been warned.

Guitarist and elementary school teacher Nick Colionne was the featured artist.

I shared an audio One-Liner from the TV show Hogan’s Heroes that was delivered by John Banner, aka Sergeant Hans Schultz.

I decided that, if I could start life over again, it would be on my 17th birthday, then realized that there’s a good chance that, had I done what I planned to do at 17, I never would have met Mary, so it’s probably best that I didn’t.

We visited our friends at KONO in San Antonio and examined their Top 10 from 1964.

The ribs last night for Mary’s birthday dinner were delicious, by the way. “Rib” was the prompt, so I talked about ribs.

Last week’s letters were M through R:

Tomorrow’s M4 is a crossover with the A to Z Challenge, so think about things that start with S and contain an X. All the regular features will be here, as well as my posts for the letters S through X.

Thanks to:

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

    1. Every day’s a holiday when you’re retired ๐Ÿ™‚ Seriously, we had a nice, quiet day yesterday and the weather is gorgeous. I’m quite enjoying it.


  1. Ahhh, my girl just ate way too many of her jellybeans in the basket today and ended up with a bellyache. She was looking pretty sorry by bedtime — hopefully she’ll be chipper again by morning!


  2. I’m behind on my reading and writing, but I spend most of my time trying to catch up with everything. I fell in love with the Kingston Trio when I was seven and have never fallen out. I never bought an LP; they probably cost $4.98, and it took quite a while to amass that much allowance money. It was hard enough to save $3.98 for Van Cliburn or Tennessee Ernie Ford.


    1. It’s really easy to fall behind this time of year. I always figure it’s just as easy to wait until everything rolls to a stop, then do my visiting.

      One of my aunts had a couple of Kingston Trio albums at home, and I just about played the grooves off them. I was 7 at the time, too. Now just about everything is available on YouTube…


  3. I have been ABC ‘s on my own and was caught up but……maybe get around to looking at you who are Really doing this challenge!!!๐Ÿ˜€
