Here are Buddy Ebsen and Irene Ryan from *The Beverly Hillbillies* for Winston cigarettes. Winston tastes good, like a cigarette should!
Another quiet week here at Chez Holton. I haven’t been out in so long I actually don’t want to go out, crazy as that sounds.
Thank you to everyone who visited last week. I had just under 400 visitors on Thursday and Friday. I’m not used to that kind of popularity… but I could get used to it really quickly…
The badge contest for the A to Z Challenge is now closed to further entries. We’re going to get together and look at the entries soon and decide which we would like to use. There might be a runoff election, in which case you all get to choose which you like the best.
Which reminds me: I need to come up with a theme for this year’s Challenge. I usually have one by now. Maybe I’ll do what I did two years ago, where all my words started with re- followed by the letter of the day, only use a different prefix.
We’ll have another Battle of the Bands this Tuesday, the 15th, which would have been my dad’s 90th birthday. I need to figure out how to work that in.
