Mom spent a lot of time sick and we moved out of Echo. Mom also read “Mommy Dearest” couldn’t believe how Joan Crawford could be so nice in public and abusive in private. We also got to go to a circus and Mom started buying a waterbed. She’d been dreaming of that for a while. Grandma Joyce also got a new house and we spend some time discussing what we remember of it. Mom also goes into a long explanation on her relationship with “R” so far and some pretty disturbing events that get us wondering about the foundation it was built on.
This Week’s Thoughts
So I have a quick story based on one of this week’s songs. Another One Bites The Dust by Queen was Mat’s FAVORITE song when it came out. I can remember him dancing to it the way only a four year old can. He thought it was GREAT! Anyway, I don’t remember what my favorite song was but I do know that around that time I was really fascinated with the Buck Rogers TV show and my favorite character was Twiki (the little silver robot). I didn’t know at the time that the robot was voiced by Mel Blanc of Looney Tunes fame. I also found out that Mr. Blanc was raised in Portland, Oregon and got his start in voice work at KGW Radio, which is now KGW-TV an NBC Affiliate. Well, I think that’s all for this week. Enjoy!
