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.
