Sunday Ramble No. 17 #em-srp

I started messing with E. M.’s Sunday Ramble a couple of weeks ago, and am really having fun with it. I’m a Rambler from way back: the nickname for Loyola University Chicago’s teams is the Ramblers… Anyhow, this week’s topic is "Finish My Sentence." And awaaaaay we go…

Caricature of Jackie Gleason, aka “The Great One,” who popularized the phrase “and awaaaaay we go!”

The greatest feeling in the world is when I: take a nap after I eat. Which I do more or less involuntarily…

The one thing that I misplace more than anything is my: trust in people.

When I am stressed out, the one item/person/thing that always makes me get back to feeling okay is: music, of course!

When I am sick, the only thing I want is: sleep…

Whenever I feel like I am procrastinating, I fix it by: procrastinating some more.

Those are my answers. Get your own!

Tally-ho and away we go!
See you next week with a brand new show!

  1. I loved all of the visuals πŸ˜€ Great finishes to my sentences, and I am so glad that you choose to ramble with me! I grew up in Illinois, and if I would have stayed there, Loyola was my college choice πŸ™‚


    1. I grew up in Rogers Park, about two blocks from the Loyola campus, and remember the year they won the NCAA tournament (1963). I had always assumed that’s where I’d go for college, but Mom had this notion that I’d go to Northwestern for engineering… I ended up graduating from Loyola, anyway…

      1. They have a great law program and were trying to get me to apply last year around graduation. I grew up in Illinois, and I moved here to California in 2017. I just can’t see going back there with all of my family gone. It was nice to be considered though πŸ™‚

  2. Love the Wayne’s World clip. My kids and I always sang Bohemian Rhapsody VERY LOUDLY when we went on road trips. Great responses, John.


    1. My brother (who was about 16 at the time) and I were driving home from a White Sox game, and that song came on. We tried doing the head-banging thing and I almost drove into someone. Never try it on a Chicago expressway…

  3. Used to watch the Jackie Gleason show. Great television back then. Picking your brain a little here before the upcoming A to Z…when I write my post on WP and then simulcast to Blogger, the photos that I use are extremely large when they get to Blogger and I can’t always resize them on WP before I post (like if I use a collage). It takes a while for the post to show up on Blogger and sometimes I can’t get in to change the size quick enough. Any idea how to stop that from happening?


    1. I wish I could tell you how to make it work with the pictures. I had the same problem going the other way…

      Gleason’s variety show was tremendous. Dad loved it, so we watched it every Saturday night, even after he died. I had the Top Cat coloring book that Crazy Guggenheim used to read to Joe the Bartender and Mr. Denehy….
