My daughter, upset because she put her first born on the bus to kindergarten today. She didn't get back to her car in time to follow but husband and little sister followed till they felt reassured that she would be okay(the girls went to daycare together up until today).

My next door neighbor has just congratulated me on the wonderful Olympics we put on. Not sure what my involvement was, but I accepted his applause on behalf of the nation.

A guy at work commenting on what I'm wearing (twin set & pearls). "Don't you just love a pearl necklace?"

I had to explain to him what that actually meant.

Had no idea these guys were still performing last year. They still have it. Tommy Smothers at 84 last year, and Dick at 83.

I remember being a kid watching the Smothers Brothers with my parents. Looking at the wiki page for the show there was a whole lot of talent in the writing department.
