Memory Lane

IMG_1884Saturday, and I’m home alone (aside from 5 dogs) for lunch, so I make a sandwich and get the remote and see what might be on TV on a Saturday afternoon.  I was surprised to see that one of my favorite, childhood TV shows was on, Davey & Goliath.

PB&J, chocolate milk and a TV show from the 1960’s. A walk down memory lane.

The Davey & Goliath program always had two, fourteen-minute epidodes in a half hour show. Long gone are the days of kids being taught positive lessons on a Saturday morning.

Here is the first half from today.  In reviewing the Wiki link, this segment, entitled “The Neighbor” was produced in 1964.

Anyone else remember this series?  What were your favorite shows as a young child?

No, Weer All Over Sixty Now

The title is a reference to a comment on this video and a spoof on the ages of those that listened to Slade in the early 1970’simages

What a great find this evening.  I remember being in 8th grade and reading about Slade in Circus Magazine.  There was one guy in our class who was way ahead of the rest of us when it came to music, introducing me to bands such as Blue Oyster Cult, Humble Pie and Slade.

The music was loud, the outfits were outrageously glam (I had a pair of plaid slacks just like that and about the same length after one of my growth spurts, but they weren’t cool).

I suppose Quiet Riot has paid a fairly large royalty to Slade over the years. At least they should have.

Time For A Workout

It’s Friday afternoon and time for a workout.

The fact that these two, panels may appear to some as being related, it is purely a coincidence.

Maybe.

Our Demons Lurk

What a great talent and it’s hard to believe he’s been gone almost three years.  It just goes to show you that no matter how good someone else appears to have it, they too have their own demons to deal with.

Here is the short trailer for my favorite  (and it’s difficult to pick a favorite) William’s movie.

Mentoring

IMG_1836.JPG

Earlier this evening, Snickers (L) was instructing Martha in the fine art of subliminal begging as they were aware of the bacon/swiss burger that I cooked for dinner.

Yea, I know you are supposed to discourage begging  behavior like that, but life is short and dead is for a very long time. . .  even dogs understand that, which is why they make better use of their time than we humans usually do.

Lighten up and give them a piece of bacon.

WWLD?

What Would Lassie Do?

She would never think this way, that’s for sure.

Just another difference between dogs and cats.

Remember:  Dogs have masters and cats have staff.
