The “Already mid-September?” Week That Was

This edition of The Week That Was is brought to you by Hair So New from Clairol.

It’s been hot and humid here all week, but next week promises to be cooler and rainy. Fall is in the air!

On Tuesday, I ran a test to see whether WordPress would pass just the excerpt rather than the whole text of the post to Facebook. The answer was a resounding "no." Oh, well, back to the drawing board.

Aside from that, nothing much is happening, at least not in Real Life™. Lots went on here, though, and here’s a summary.

It was a freebie day, but given it was Labor Day, I focused on songs about working.

Another week of four Harry Potter questions, these based on the book Harry Potter and The Order of the Phoenix, and three from Melanie for those who refuse to answer the Harry Potter questions.

In my latest battle, Cliff Richard’s "Congratulations" beat Paul Simon’s and Reba McEntire’s.

We visited radio station 3XY in Melbourne, Victoria, Australia and checked out their Top Ten from 1973. It was quite different from what we were listening to here.

Took yet another one-liner from Lamebook, this one poking fun at the diminutive Tom Cruise.

Took the word "fresh" and talked about freshness as a marketing idea. Included was a clip from the movie Barbarians At The Gate that many of you found hilarious, which is why I included it.

The Doobie Brothers were this week’s featured artists, specifically from their "Michael McDonald" era.

The prompt was "collar" and I talked about our cats who wore collars, all of which were my buddies. I didn’t include Kismet, also known as Kittyface, because I wasn’t sure whether we had her wear a flea collar (we had some issues with fleas at one time, and she being a mostly-white cat picked them up easier than the others). She was another of my buddies.

Tomorrow is National Coloring Day and our Monday’s Music Moves Me prompt is "song titles/lyrics about art in general – get creative or use your high school colors to build your theme around." I’ll probably go with the high school colors thing. There’s another Battle of the Bands coming on Tuesday, so be sure and stop by and vote on it. Everything else will be as usual. I have a writing project for Mary that I need to focus on for something other than the blog, so there won’t be a lot of deviation from normal.

    1. I think it’s the way one day just kind of flows into the next. All of a sudden it’s the middle of September. I think all the quarantining started at the end of March, so we’re almost at the 6-month mark.

            1. There’s an O’Charley’s that we go to quite often, and the place is practically empty. It wasn’t bad enough that they opened a Chick-Fil-A nearby that took a lot of their business, now they have to deal with this. Same with the Chili’s down on 120. That used to be packed at lunch, now practically no one is there. A barbecue place opened near us about a year ago; they still have carryout, but the dining room is shut. Our Starbucks is a big one, but they’re doing just drive-thru and carryout. I feel terrible for the people who worked at those places who either have been let go or had their hours slashed. I think we’ve overreacted terribly, and the people who suffer are the ones that can least afford to. We were prepared for millions of deaths, but have only had 200,000 and most of them were people with other health problems. I’m not trying to minimize the pain and suffering people have gone through, nor am I insensitive to the people who have lost loved ones, but my God, what are we doing?
