Remembering on Sunday

1. I remember when Saturday Night Live started in the 70's. We watched it every Saturday night with this original cast. Then we moved to Charleston, West Virginia on January 1, 1977. We never saw it again!
When we lived in St. Louis, we were on Central time. That meant it came on after the news at 10:30.  In fact, after we moved we were on Eastern time and never saw the news again either! That was just too late for us. By the time we moved back to Central time in 1981, we were out of the habit and all of those characters were gone. We just never got in to it again. But I have to say, we loved it at the beginning! Talk about politically incorrect! 

2. Actually, I think that dandelion blossoms are quite pretty. It's the foliage--not so much. 
On the other hand, my grandparents used those leaves to make dandelion wine. I was a kid, so I never tasted it. I wonder what that tastes like. If it's half way decent, then dandelions are quite useful. Plus, technically, welds are misplaced wildflowers!

3. This speaks for itself..
...or maybe it doesn't. I guess there are a lot of things that don't make a lot of sense. But, I have to admit, I love the King's English! I'm learning all kinds of meanings, like "I need to spend a penny"--meaning "I have to use the bathroom." Here in the south, they say "I need to powder my nose." 

Another odd word: "bespoke"--which means custom. "Ablutions"--which is mentioned in just about every book set in Englan--refers to, what I would call your morning routine. I like to throw that in to the conversation whenever I can. Not really, but I'd like to.

4. I guess it doesn't take much to get on CNN.
They had to act quick. How long could it last? I wonder if they got any money for it.

5. I think this is just about the cutest thing I've seen.
It looks like it would be pretty easy to do with any rocker. I say that, but I don't have an artistic bone in my body---not when it comes to painting anything. Still, what a great idea! Especially since school is back in full swing.

What fun things have you discovered this week?


  1. (Okay, typing for the 3rd time! Blogger doesn't like me this a.m.)

    I have only seen SNL 3 or 4 times in all these years as I am not a late night person. I do think Chevy Chase bears a strong resemblance to Matthew Rhys in that photo.

    Darling rocker.
