A Little Travellin’ Music
Back in the sixties, when variety shows and sitcoms ruled, Jackie Gleason was a star and his American Scene Magazine was must-see TV. The show was a combination of comedy skits, musical and dance numbers and sight gags. The show featured a cast of characters like Joe the Bartender, Crazy Guggenheim, and the Poor Sole. The show also featured many new comedians, including Rodney Dangerfield. At the end of the show, Gleason would say, A little travellin’ music, Mr. Spears, then shuffle off the stage to the theme written especially for his exit. Apparently the Gleason clips are closely guarded property, because I wasn’t able to find a YouTube video, so you’ll have to imagine the scene from the photo.
So, it’s Top Sites Tuesday #95 Eve and a traveling day for Mr. and Mrs. Eyes from San Tan Valley, AZ to Anaheim Hills, CA. And in keeping with the Two Thoughts on Tuesday theme, I’m thinking I’ll miss being in Arizona and I’m ready to be home. This trip seemed to be a whirlwind without much time to relax in our Little House in the Desert. We helped our daughter celebrate her thirty-second birthday (how can my Little Girl be thirty-two?), played with the grandkids, and went out for dinner with our neighbors, John and Carolyn. We had one date, dinner and a movie but not enough us time. And now we’re leaving. I miss my grandkids even before we’re gone.
How-some-ever. We’re headed back to California where the weather is cooler and there are no desert plants to give me a rash on my arm. My routine (more and more important as the years pass), my park, and my bed await (It’s funny … my wife sleeps better in our Arizona bed but I sleep better in California). Tuesday morning, I’m off to the dentist to have a bridge put in, not a pleasant experience but I’m anxious to have it in place, even if it’s Just a Tooth. It’s tax week but I’m anxious to be done with that, too. And we really love our Big House in the Hills (it’s only big compared to our desert house), where our time is (mostly) ours. And I can get back to being a better blog reader, too. See you soon.
Before you run off to A Little Travelin’ Music of your own, I’d love it if you’d push my button … gently … to make me Number One on Top Sites Tuesday #95.
