Sing along with me everyone. It’s that day of the week again (friday). Did anyone watch Howdy Doody? It’s my era, but I never could be bothered watching television when there was outside playing to be done. Still, I remember that ugly puppet and Buffalo Bob. St. Louis had several after school shows. We had Cookie and the Captain which showed The Three Stooges (and, I have never understood the allure of the Three Stooges, but I might be impaired). Some show with Corky the Clown. And, Texas Bruce. I loved Texas Bruce. He was the kind of man that you could trust (and, he really truly was). He could ride a horse and everything. Still, I watched very little of him. I have never been much for television. There are some things that grab my attention, but I lose interst before long (magpies are like that). I don’t watch movies much either. The last movie I watched was “Shoot “Em Up” with Clive Owen, so I’m not gonna make NetFlix any money at all. That’s one reason I love my knitting. It occupies me without boring me. I can listen to classical music on the radio (my Mom is rock ‘n roll intolerant to this day, I listen to it in the car) or jazz and just knit away. I have heard tell in these here parts that some knitters listen to books. I have tried that and I can’t do it. It makes me a nervous wreck. I don’t understand why, but it does, so I don’t. And, I’ll bet you all are thinking to yourselves, WTF??? Well, you should be on this side of the weirdness.
Have you noticed? No exclamation points? I ran out, but I did find a good stash of question marks. I’m gonna use them instead, so if you find yourself with your voice going up at the end of a sentence that is not a question, but an excited declaration, then blame the lack of sales on exclamation points. I’m wondering if that’s what happened in the schools. Did they run out of periods and exclamation points and just start plugging in question marks? Is that why so many people sound like every damn thing they say is a question????? Is it?
So, the weekend is upon us once again. Thank you Father Time? I sure hope you all have a wonderful weekend. I am going clean and knit? This question mark thing might be problematic.
I will leave you with my soundtrack for the day. How about REM and a wonderful rendition of “Smiling Happy People” ?
Have a great weekend?
