Friday Leftovers (Nov. 6)

Another edition of my weekly leftovers.

Word Association

Remember to play along here.

1. Hairbrush :: Where?
2. Sneak :: attack
3. Hole :: head
4. Horror :: show
5. Standard :: equation
6. Mailbox :: letters
7. Attachment :: PDF
8. Type :: writer
9. Nails :: hammer
10. Storage :: shed

Notes: Hairbrush and Where? are in reference to The Hairbrush Song by the Veggie Tales. I don't watch that show and never really have but that song is played on the children's music channel on Sirius and Kennedy is especially fond of it. It's a pretty funny song. And has anyone under the age of 30 ever used a typewriter? I'm pretty sure you could ask some random high school students about a typewriter and they'd probably never even heard of or seen one. Yeah, aging myself here...

Dad Update

My dad's in the hospital and will remain there for several days as they run some tests. We're still not sure what he's got but the consensus seems to be some sort of aspriation pneumonia. But it appears as if it's mild if that's what it is and he seems like he always does, save for a little shortness of breath. Some tests Friday morning could determine the extent of the illness.

Mud Run Dates

I'm going to post about this in much greater detail but Camp Pendleton Races announced their calendar for 2010. The Camp Pendleton Mud Run 2010 dates are June 5, 6 and 12. We may go for the 5th. There's usually another one in October but that one's not up yet. We might go for that too (we meaning the usual crew that I've run the last two with).

LB's Song of the Week

My weekly nod to children's music...

You are either going to like this or really dislike it. There seems to be no in-between. Three of us here like it and one of us really dislikes it, Mrs. LB being the lone dissenting vote.

It's a song called Highway 40 by Brak. I'm not sure what Brak's history is or what show he's on - well, I did some research and found out he was on a show called Space Ghost back in the day, like, back before my day, in the late 60s - but still I'm not familiar with him.

But I heard this song on Sirius 116, the kid's music channel, and immediately thought it was great. The girls and I love to sing the song together.

Still keeping your dad in our prayers!!!

Ilisabeth did not care for today's musical selection...and I have to say, neither did I. Mrs. LB is no longer in the minority. It just seemed like a bunch of off-key screeching to me!!! Isi just shook her head and said "No thanks, mom."

Well wishes to your dad!

I didn't listen to the song yet because the kids are watching Mickey Mouse Clubhouse and willall flock to the computer if it starts making noise...I'll come back to listen later.

I hope your dad is feeling better soon. I've been thinking of him since I read your post yesterday.

The song.....not bad. It reminds me of the sort of song you might make up to keep your kids occupied. It will, however, be stuck in my head for the rest of the day. Thanks, Luis!

BTW - Brak used to be on a show my son watched when he was little (much more current than the 60's). I'll have to ask him about it when he gets home.

My Hairbrush response was the same as yours. I am a die hard VeggieTales fans.

Now that the Mud Run dates are official, I've got to start rounding up the friends who said they wanted to do it with me and get firm yes or nos.

Thumbs down on this week's song. I do hope it doesn't get stuck in my head. I would say I'm glad that my sons are too old for children's music but some of the stuff they've replaced it with is just as annoying.

I'm with Tiffany on this one! Pbbbbffft!

Oh where is my hairbrush? Now that's a classic. One of my favorite Veggie Tale Silly songs is The Cheeseburger Song followed closely by Barbara Manatee.

I'm sorry about your father and will continue to keep him in my prayers.

Take care!
