I've been watching the Winter Olympics non-stop since they started . . . was it 120 weeks ago? I am not a sportsman and I'm getting tired of watching everyone going RAH! RAH! and freezing their butts off in Korea. Although when I tell Joan I'm watching "Olympic Sports" on TV she lets me drink beer. I think it comes from her dad drinking beer while watching baseball on TV all those years ago. That's how he got his beer. I'm not even sure he liked baseball that much. I'm pretty sure he liked beer! Me too. Apparently enough to watch the Olympics!
While I'm at it I should add I AM NOT A FISHERMAN EITHER!!! (Ken S. . . take note).
Actually this is ALL a bunch of BS! (Except for for the fishing part )
Wait a minute!! "Hey Ken . . . is there BEER involved in that fishing thing"???
Jerry Lee and Little Richard . . . what more could you ask for - On The Turntable. Early 60's (after graduation) Roy Orbison and The Beach Boys continued to be popular - on The flipSide. Skip resumes his early Alaska life on Skip's Corner with Part 2 of his 4 part series. And Finally . . . some "sappy" pictures from Sharon - on PICTURESQUE!
That's a wrap!
Till Next week / be safe and I'll see you on the Turntable!
