After The Quintet ate, I let the older ones out into the backyard for potty time and took Mr. Deeds out front since there is light and it is easier to see if he is projecting the required items. It felt comfortable in my shorts and short-sleeve shirt and I am astonished to read on my weather app that it is only 29 degrees. It felt more like 45 degrees to me. Our highest temperature is scheduled for 51 degrees with minimal sunshine. Perfect.
As I finished some emails, Deeds took over the emptied cereal bowl once Erma had consumed the milk. For nearly fifteen minutes, Deeds went on the attack, barking at the spoon, and hopping around. I’ve not figured out why he barks at the spoon, but it is so doggone cute.
One of my college students currently has a class in multi-media communications and we often have lengthy discussions about his topics and how they relate to what he is doing with his piano music and compositions. Last week, his class was covering television commercials and we dug into some of Barry Manilow’s tremendous library of commercial jingles, some of which are still around. The 1970s and 1980s were great decades for commercial jingles and outstanding, memorable commercials. Justin’s comment was, “They’re so singable and some could have been full-length songs.” YES!
I could recite a number of the commercial jingles we discussed and went through the Burger King commercial, “Hold the pickle, hold the lettuce, special orders don’t upset us…” This morning, there was a funny meme on Facebook, referencing the old McDonald’s commercial, “Two all beef patties, special sauce, lettuce, cheese, pickles, onions on a sesame seed bun.”
I will always believe that I grew up in an incredible era of music. And I am ready to dig into my morning.
Make it a great day!
