No WW Saturday Update! I Forgot To Set My Alarm!! Memory Lane!

Well, I did it again and forgot to set my alarm.  I hate missing a Weight Watcher’s Meeting. I forgot to mention that last week I made it into the 50’s by .2 pounds so I now weigh 259.8 as of last week so I can officially listen to music of the 50’s. I posted this list when I hit the 60’s but I will post it again so you can get an idea of what I will be listening to for hopefully not too long.

  • Perry Como
  • Tony Bennett
  • Rosemary Clooney
  • Eddie Fisher
  • Nat King Cole
  • Pat Boone
  • Fats Domino
  • The Platters
  • Bill Haley & His Comets
  • Jerry Lee Lewis
  • The Everly Brothers
  • Buddy Holly & The Crickets
  • Frankie Avalon
  • Paul Anka
  • Bobby Darin
  • Elvis Presley
  • The Chordettes
  • The McGuire Sisters
  • Little Richard
  • Patti Page

I used to love Pat Boone when I was a kid.  My favorite movie of his was “April Love” 1957.  Pat Boone has been replaced by Johnny Depp who doesn’t sing but sure is a hot one and a damn good actor too.

Do you remember Poodle Skirts.  They were made out of felt.  My sister had a felt skirt but she didn’t have a poodle on it.

Birdpress ought to bring the poodle skirt back into style.

It was hard being 6 years younger than my sister because she got to do stuff I couldn’t do like read Modern Screen Magazine.  My mother thought it showed to many suggestive images whatever that meant to her.

I used to get hold of them anyway.I loved reading about movie stars and used to send away for autographed photos of them, not realizing that the photos were just stamped with the autograph.

One of my favorite TV shows back then was “Route 66”  I loved those guys in their Corvette.

Well, enough about memory lane.  I just found out there are some episodes of Route 66 on DVD. I might just have to see if Netflix has them.

Well look for new videos next week as my sister drives us around Falmouth.  I am also going to interview my sister and have her interview me.  So if you have any questions for me just let me know.  I will also be writing about how my sister and I discovered you could listen to cell phone conversations on a police scanner.  This was about 10 years ago.  They finally took the cell phone bands off the scanners.
