I’m surprised it’s taken this long to have a commercial from Playtex…
Mary and I decided to go to Starbucks today for a change of scenery, and we hadn’t been there more than ten minutes when they told us we had to leave, that the location would be a "grab and go" one for the foreseeable future, starting this afternoon. People are taking this health emergency a whole lot more seriously than we did with the avian flu, H1N1, even Ebola. As always, wash your hands, clean your counters, stay home if you’re sick etc. All of which are things we should be doing anyway.
I’m getting ready for my you-know-what on Wednesday. Several of you have said that the preparation for the exam is worse than the actual exam. I’ll just be happy when it’s all over. Anyway, here’s the summary for last week.
- (Song Lyric) Sunday: Johnny Horton, “North To Alaska”
- Monday: Glen Campbell, “Southern Nights”
- Tuesday: Butterfield Blues Band, "East-West"
- Wednesday: Jerry Reed, "Eastbound And Down"
- Thursday: Dean Martin, "Just A Little Bit South of North Carolina"
- Friday: Henry Mancini, "Far East Blues"
- Saturday: Carrie Underwood, "Southbound"
In a battle that was inadvertently a repeat of a battle back in October, The Association’s "Cherish" won decisively over Kool & The Gang and Madonna. We started another battle today, so head on over there and make your voice heard.
A free week enabled me to continue with the "names" theme from the previous week.
We were asked what flavor we are, whether we’re taking the coronavirus seriously, whether there was a time we found something we wished we hadn’t when we were snooping around, and what accent we found the mowst pleasant.
In an encore from August 2013, Dick "Two Ton" Baker was the featured artist.
My one-liner was a pun that featured John Lennon of The Beatles.
I talked about five of my current faves, including the harmonica, lemonade and our new washer.
We set the WABAC machine for New York in 1957 and played the Top Ten from radio station WMGM for this week.
The prompt "wire" led me to talk about my cat who thought speaker wires were just nummo, and the fun and games I have with wires today.
Tomorrow is the Theme Reveal for the A to Z Challenge, so if you want (it’s optional), you can share your 2020 theme for the Challenge that begins two weeks from Wednesday. Tomorrow’s M⁴ theme is "Animals." I’ll be going back to the archives to find another obscure Two for Tuesday that was done before anyone was even aware that I was blogging. I’m waiting for prompts from Melanie, Kat and Linda for tomorrow, Thursday and Saturday, need to find a pithy one-liner for Wednesday and a radio station survey for Friday. It’s kind of an autopilot week, because I really need to get started on my A to Z entries (so far I have one written) and, well, Wednesday…
