Happy 75th!

7 04 2008

It’s a good day… Today is the 75th anniversary of the end of prohibition in these United States of America. Celebrate accordingly.

(Could marijuana be far behind? There is talk of legalizing it in Austin. More reasons for the friends to visit.)

In other news:

  • There are eight large trees in the backyard and Dawn and I took full advantage of the mid-80s temperatures and the shade afforded by said trees by grilling out on both days of the weekend. What a life.
  • The baseball season is only a week old and I feel the writing bug hitting me. It might be time to start a “baseball only” blog since the paying gig is long since gone.
  • Has anyone watched “Leave It To Beaver” lately? We like to watch the 4am showing on TVLand. That show’s humor stands the test of time, not to mention giving Dawn and I new catch phrases. (My fave? “Quit giving me the business!”) And I miss the days in which “sock” stood for more than something to cover a foot.
  • In regards to the above, it is still funny (although a bit juvenile) to hear a line like “I gave the Beaver a bath last night”.

Enjoy the holiday.

Dawn

I just love watching Leave it to Beaver with you. The fact that we set the alarm for 4 a.m. to wake up for it is a bit sad, but we are weird and weird people do stuff like that I guess.

I liked the line from a few weeks ago ” Ward, dont you think you are being too hard on the Beaver?”
