Tuesday, March 21, 2017 – It’s The Shoes or It’s The Chews! SFA and AXO!
One of my favorite scenes (they are all my favorites) in movie The Bird Cage is when Agador, played by the great Hank Azaria, must wear footwear for the senator’s and the family visit. He continues to fall and finally screams “It’s the chews!”
Walk with me here – yesterday I had to visit my primary care physician so she could “see me” in order to renew my prescriptions (See new rules and laws as of January 2017 regarding prescriptions.)
As she was renewing my meds, she asked “anything else today?” I replied, “No, my feet hurt, but it can wait until wellness in two-weeks. (See insurance rules)
She takes a quick look at my shoes and asks “How old are your shoes?” I reply “This is my best pair and they are at least a year.” She replies “You need new shoes.”
Here’s what I’m thinking – The doctor said I need new shoes for medical reasons. I always try to follow doctors’ orders. So I think this must include new workout shoes; new golf shoes; new summer footwear; new house shoes, new shower shoes, maybe even some new “real” shoes because I actually have some social functions to attend this spring.
WOW – check this out – light up sneakers for adults. I wonder if there is maroon and white LED version. https://hoverkicks.com/
Little Sis? I wonder if there a purple and white pair? Wouldn’t light up sneakers be awesome to wear to our Alpha Chi Omega reunion when we all sing “… all Hail to SFA!”
I think this is my pledge class at The Fall Festival at SFA – 1969??
Therefore, I must go get my prescriptions and my shoes refilled. As Agador says “It’s the chews.”
Thursday, February 23, 2017 – Do You Believe in the Hereafter? Laugh-In. Sock It to Me!
This is for all of my Alpha Chi Omega sisters from Epsilon Eta – Stephen F. Austin State University in Nacogdoches, Texas 1969-1971. And to those GDIs who were harassed in Dorm 18 after curfew.
I hope you laughed as much as I did when this Laugh-In couple flashed across the TV screen the other night during NBC’s celebration of 95 years of TV broadcasting.
Artie Shaw: Do you believe in the hereafter?
Ruth Buzzy: Yes.
Artie Shaw: Then you know what I’m here after…
Sock it to me! Sock it to me ! Sock it to me!
Wednesday, March 16,, 2016 – Me and My Brackets
Our post today is brought to by the word Skullduggery – Skuhl-DUHG-uh-ree
It is a noun meaning:
- dishonorable proceedings, mean dishonest or trickery: bribery graft and other such skullduggery
- an instance of dishonest or deceitful behavior; trick
But enough about the presidential elections and the government.
Here is my completed bracket for the women’s NCAA Division I basketball tournament.
Yep – got the Baptists and the Catholics in Championship Game – Baylor and Notre Dame. As you can see I have Baylor and Texas A&M playing in the Sweet 16. When these two teams play it is known as a “bitter rivalry.” I am sure Coach Mulkey and Coach Blair will show clips from 2011 and the infamous clock issue. Should A&M pull an upset, I will not talk to my family for a week.
“Just Say No to Four” is my mantra for UConn. The University of Connecticut is a basketball dynasty in any league and Briana Stewart (Stewie) is one of the greatest collegiate athletes you will see – male or female. Nevertheless, Here’s What I’m Thinking – the odds are against you to repeat as National Champions for a fourth time. And you know Mulkey and Muffet have teams that can beat you. The scenery only changes for the lead Huskie and it is time for a change. So I am going with the Bears and the Creepy Leprechauns.
But first on March 19 The Fighting Texas Aggie Women must BTHO Missouri State.
I also completed a Division I Men’s Basketball Bracket. I used the Penny method for selecting the Championship Game – my favorite colors, mascots, funny sounding names, etc. My major criterion was schools from which I have graduated. Therefore I have Texas A&M playing Stephen F. Austin for the National Championship. Gig ‘Em Aggies and Ax ‘Em Jacks!
