Friday Night Potpourri

A week is a week is a week:
  • Even if you don't write Friday Night Potpourri until Saturday afternoon.
  • Even if the Beatles wrote a song titled, "Eight Days A Week."
  • Especially when you think this FNP theme is cute then "This Week In Baseball" comes on.
  • One of the things about my temp job that I haven't experienced in several decades is that I get paid once a week.  This is so unusual that I don't quite know how to process it.  But a paycheck shows up every seven days instead of twice per month, and we're all thankful for that.
  • I've run out of "week" theme items so I'll switch to something random like breakfast cereals.  So there's a cereal called Reece's Puffs, a take off of Cocoa Puffs.  I guess some goof accidentally spilled some peanut butter in the Cocoa Puff recipe while in the General Mills laboratory.  Accidents happen.  Not that I would eat such a concoction.  I grew up on Wheaties, Cheerios, Corn Flakes, Shredded Wheat, Cinnamon Life and a half dozen other lessers.
  • The kids were bored late in the summer.  I can tell by all the stuff accumulated on the roof.  Cups, balls, newspapers, toys, rocks.  Time to get the ladder out and do some fall cleaning.
  • This last item has nothing whatsoever to do with a week.  Or so I've heard.

  1. Arthur,

    I didn't even know they existed until about 10:30 this morning. ;)
