I know I’ve done that commercial before, but I don’t care, it’s a favorite.
A quiet and not terribly eventful week has come and gone. They all kind of blend into each other these days. Dentist tomorrow, this time for a cleaning, which isn’t too bad. I get my new tooth installed on the 25th. At least, I think I do… anyway, here’s the summary for last week.
Alana wanted us to come up with crossovers, either songs from one genre that were popular in another or artists who were popular in more than one genre. I was able to think of ten and the others came up with some others. I’d say we did a good job.
Johnny Crawford, who starred with Chuck Connors in that late-’50’s Western The Rifleman, was this week’s featured artist. I think people were surprised he could sing.
I took a funny comment I saw on Apartment Therapy’s website and used it on Wednesday.

- Ally Bean
- Mary B
- Cathy Keisha
- Uncle Jack Connelly
- Anyone I missed
- Everyone who left a “like”
And that’s it for this edition of The Week That Was. See you in the funny papers!
