Good Morning Speakies:
First of all a big “CONGRATS TO THOSE PHILLIES” winning their fourth consecutive National League East Pennant. I bet Harry Kalas up there in heaven was calling the game with Richie Ashburn to all those departed Phillies fans. I can just hear Harry say, “Halladay delivers, Strike 3, He struck him out, Phillies are National League East Champions Whitey.” They were a great baseball play by play team. I wish the Phils the best of luck in the playoffs and I hope they bring another World Series Pennant to Philly.
Living in Florida you get to see some neat things, like from our back yard we can see the Space Shuttle lift-off from Cape Canaveral. Last night on the local news they said you can observe the Space Station at 6:45 a.m. heading in a Northeast direction. As I was getting ready for work I remembered so I ventured outside about 6:45 on the dot and low and behold I spotted the old station zipping along. It looked like a bright white star heading northeast. I wanted to play that oldie record “Telstar” by the Tornados to the whole neighborhood and wake their butts up. Pretty neat I said to myself makes up for all those times they said to watch for the various meteor showers and when I went outside, the night sky was so cloudy you could not even see the moon.
Sorry had to break from my thoughts; I just received a call from my dentist’s office reminding me of my cleaning appointment on Thursday. I like the feel of clean white teeth, but man I can’t keep my mouth open wide that long. I know I have a big mouth but Lord have mercy on my jaw.
A few Happy Birthdays go out today to:
Arnold Stang that Top Cat Guy.
Ed Sullivan – We have a Really Big Show Tonight.
Al Capp – That Li’l Abner Cartoon Guy.
And if it’s your Birthday today have a great one from JoeyZ. To the rest of my Speakies have a great day and be careful out there. I leave you with that song "Telstar" for your listening pleasure a true oldie but goodie.
