On a Radio for Monday

Another weekend has come and gone. How was yours? What was your memorable event of the weekend?

Because Saturday was a full day, we strolled onto the ballroom floor Friday night – thus Saturday we spent the day at the Handbell Musicians of America conference (which included a good concert), and then attended a barbecue party hosted by friends.

Sunday was a low-key day. I enjoyed watching The (British) Open and its crazy ending. Also on Sunday, a homegrown kid who grew up to play for the hometown team was inducted in the Baseball Hall of Fame. Cheers to Cincinnati Reds great, Barry Larkin.

Your Monday Morning Entertainment is from the Sesame Street vault of fun moments. Enjoy the Martians and the radio – and a special shout-out to Madame Weebles, who (not long ago) shared this video with her readers. Β Have a good week.

  1. Not much unusual on the home front, except having the wife home both days, a welcome deviation from normal. Had to attack grass and weeds for the first time in weeks – why is it that the same plant will grow where it’s considered a weed, and die where it’s desired? Somebody REALLY needs to look into that!
    On a far more serious and somber note, you might want to Google “Paws And Stripes United Airlines”. Seems a couple of United ticket agents in Dulles airport were rather rough on a PTSD-riddled vet AND his service dog. The only thing worse than the event were the number of trolls out on United’s Facebook page, yelling at and chastising people for simply expressing their views. I had hoped UA had changed after my (VERY) brief stint with their subsidiary COVIA back in the late 80s, but if they have, it’s for the worse.
    Okay, okay, enough heavy stuff dropped this weekend. Let’s look forward to a happy week, what with a good Neptunalia for you ancient Romans on Monday, and the Olympic opening ceremonies on Friday! PAR-TAY! πŸ˜€


    • John,
      The Paws and Stripes story is the ridiculous side of human behavior. Sad – but thanks for bringing to my attention. Meanwhile, good luck with the weeds. As for the Olympic’s Opening Ceremonies, I’m sure the Brits will do it right. After all, they love celebratory pomp! Happy Neptunalia to you as well. Thanks for sharing.


  2. Saw my son play with his band on Saturday – first time I was “allowed” to see the band — it was at a biker trailer park – my son deemed it safe enough for me,and it was – I call him my rock god – he just sighs
    My husband said we stuck out like a sore thumb –we are a bit preppy


    • Weebs,
      The Sunday scores at The Open were higher than the rest of the week. Regarding Larkin, he had his own section of the newspaper yesterday! Thanks for the video and for stopping by.


    • Good Morning Alex,
      Great question, but unfortunately, the Martians haven’t encountered iPad … but if they did, I sure it include nope nope nope nope nope nope and yip yip yip yip yup yup yup yup yup. Thanks for visiting! πŸ™‚


  3. It was nice to be at my desk and to find all your beautiful comments on my blog, dear Frank. I don’t want to talk about my last week… I just wish to have a nice day now… and to forget what happened. I love your Monday messages, it was so nice to watch them again… Thank you, have a nice new week, love, nia


  4. Gotta love Sesame Street. πŸ˜€

    Sounds like a good weekend, Frank. I had a good one, too. The Color Run, the Jazz & Rib Fest, and visiting with my granddaughters. Couldn’t have asked for a better weekend.


  5. Sound like you had a fun and enjoyable weekend. Cute video. I’m enjoying my Monday it’s a beautiful day perfect tempeture. Yesterday we sat by the lake and watched people take their boats in and out of the water.


  6. Dance clip! Dance clip! Dance clip! πŸ™‚

    Funny you should ask about the weekend as I actually wrote about something from it, in my post today! We’re on a wavelength here!

    Sesame Street never fails – great clip.


    • Eyes,
      LOL … chants from the gallery will have little impact. πŸ˜‰ …. Although the chances of that happening are slim, I do appreciate the chants! Thanks for commenting.


  7. Um .. totally unrelated question here, Frank. Any sign of our fair lady from the great white north? I don’t recall having seen her commenting here lately – though with the crappy quality of my Internet since that major power outage, I haven’t been as thorough reading through all responses.


  8. I think Sesame Street appeals to all ages. i used to love watching it with my daughter’s kids when they were small. Sounds like you had a great and very varied weekend, with music, dancing and good food. πŸ˜‰


  9. I love Sesame Street to this day! I will always encourage a sit down with my granddaughters, and we’ve found a proliferation of the “old” shows on Netflix. I love watching them and singing along! πŸ™‚ Debra


    • Debra,
      Cheers to you at the beach! πŸ™‚ … thus hope everyone is having a grand time .. and glad this made you smile (and don’t forget to show the granddaughters). Thanks for visiting.
