On Hiatus

on hiatus

Due to some personal matters that are taking up a lot of my time, I have reluctantly decided to take a hiatus from blogging for the rest of the month. There is a slight possibility that I might post a quick “Quote of the Day” but I am not making any promises. I am hoping that my time will be freed up again around February 1st so I can get back to posting more stuff. See you then! 🙂

I’n Ba-a-a-ack!

It’s been almost 3 years since I went on hiatus….many things – my mother’s health problems and subsequent passing, my own health issues, moving from my lifelong house into a small apartment and dealing with Social Security, Medicaid and Social Services, among other things – kept me otherwise occupied and then I just didn’t think about blogging for a while.

Anyhoo, I’m back to take another shot at sharing my thoughts and other tidbits. Some posts, like this one, will come from my phone – a new experience for moi – and some will come from my laptop….all will come from this thing I laughingly refer to as my mind.

I hope I can make this a worthwhile experience for you….and for me.

Going Blanc

I have returned from my 5-month long hiatus and to celebrate my return and my 100th blog post, I am posting a video of Mel and Noel Blanc on the CBS summer series That’s My Line from August of 1980. I saw this when it aired and I had a hunch about what this was leading up to….and when Bob Barker didn’t ask Noel what his name was, I knew what was coming. Enjoy!

A Couple of Plugs For OH MY GOODNESS…IT’S PAUL LYNDE! Starring Michael Airington

Airington - Lynde

My talented friend Michael Airington will be performing his awesome one-man show Oh My Goodness…It’s Paul Lynde! in Palm Springs at The Purple Room January 22nd – 24th and in San Diego at Martinis Above Fourth January 28th and 29th. I’ve posted previously about Michael’s show here and here….and am always happy to give him a shout out whenever he is appearing somewhere. I believe very strongly in Michael and his show….I have said this before and I will say it again – Michael doesn’t just portray Paul Lynde….he channels him!
