This edition of The Week That Was is brought to you by Heinz Worcestershire Sauce. No matter how you pronounce it, say “Heinz” first, and you’ll know it’s good becase it’s Heinz!
The spokescartoon has a bit of a Teutonic accent at the end there.
If you haven’t already done so, be sure and stop by my Battle of the Bands and vote. The song is “On The Beach” and the contestants are Boz Scaggs and Neil Young. I’ll announce the winner tomorrow afternoon, so be sure and get your vote to me by noon tomorrow (Eastern time).
We’ve had quite a bit of rain this past week, so I’m not sorry I haven’t been out. I guess when it isn’t raining it’s hot and humid, so I’d rather stay inside in air-conditioned comfort. The bad news is that I really don’t have much to report here. So, let’s move on to

I’ve encountered all sorts of stuff about the origin of Heinz. Like the guy was drowning in debt, had to sneak out windows and slide down drain pipes to avoid creditors and such. I don’t know if that was true or a story that sold well (you know how it goes). Anyway, good ketchup, in my opinion. I remember the first time I had ketchup. It tasted nothing like tomato to me, and some guy told me it was rabbit’s blood. And I wrote, “I’ve had rabbit’s blood. Tastes nothing like this.” He was trying to freak me out, and I ended up freaking him out instead. LOL.

My IWSG blog post discussed my love of originality. I’m looking forward to the bout of books readathon and WEP’s flash fiction later this month.
Life threw me a curveball with a neighborhood crisis this week, but we got through it.
Fun fact: August is the only name of a month that’s also a popular name among 👶 baby boys.

Wishing we had more rain, got a tiny bit Friday night but not enough to do anything. I just noticed Stampy in your sidebar. I sure needed the laugh. I may visit him often. lol
That’s what he’s there for. Or maybe Stampy is a she…
We’ve just been lucky that we’ve had a couple of good downpours this past week and that we’ll possibly have some this week, too. Like I said, I see rain as a gift from God….

What a crazy week of major heat. I can’t believe how sticky everything is plus my glasses fog up. Busy at work too. Better to stay inside
I’m two months away from having to go out again. By October I hope it’s cooled off; we can still get some heat all the way into November.
We have had quite a bit of rain this week. I am grateful for the rain since others around the world are having severe droughts and grateful we’re not experiencing flooding like Kentucky, etc.
The first couple of years we were here, we were under drought conditions. From that point on, I never complained about the rain. It’s almost as though too much isn’t as bad as not enough.
