MY DAILY CALENDAR…DAY 228 – AUGUST 17, 2013
MY DAILY CALENDAR WEEKEND EDITION / SATURDAY DAY 228 OF 2013: Renee and I had a Let’s Pretend vacation day sitting in the shade of a tall palm trees on a tropical island. Actually, we were sitting in the back yard in the shade of the tall cedar trees, but the cool breezes that surrounded us sure felt tropical. I got lost in a novel on my Kindle, and Renee captured a crystalline creature which she crushed in her mighty jaws. If you’re not old enough to remember live Saturday morning kid’s radio, you probably never even heard of Let’s Pretend. It was a Peabody Award winning show that ran for over two decades … through the 30s, 40s and into the 50s until the final show on October 23, 1954. Click the link below to hear the Cream of Wheat jingle that opened every Saturday morning episode of the show.
The Grand Avenue Line was the streetcar I rode on most with my family. Enough nostalgia, on with the weekend.
I’ll think of something more exciting to post for the Sunday edition.
