Frontal Lobotomy

On Old Route 66 with “No Sines Of Life”.
Interesting that a drinking quote that is said to have been coined by TomΒ Waits on Fernwood 2 Night in 1977 is attributed to Eleanor Roosevelt. At least the lobotomized bottler got the quote right. Anyone remember Fernwood 2 Night?
The trees are showing “Sines of Life” by putting on leaves.

  1. Of course I remember Fernwood 2 Night and Mary Hartman, Mary Hartman too. They were about the only shows I could stomach back then. Someone asked me the other day if I ever watched “Dallas”. Nope. .She then told me about some episode for over 10 minutes. Uh huh πŸ™‚

  2. “The world is a hellish place, and bad writing is destroying the quality of our suffering.”

    • Mr. Rogers made a good point. I don’t think Mr. Rogers will be quoted on a sign outside a liquor store. But you never know. Thanks, Ron.

  3. Okay, those sines. I thought, “Can’t be Tim forgot how to spell ‘signs’.” until I saw the marquee. But, of course, when you have missing letters (or not enough) for your marquee, you improvise. Hopefully, no one mistook ‘sines’ as the plural for sins. πŸ™‚

    The frontal lobotomy, my Laurie would suggest you get a second opinion first. I’m sure Susan would say the same. πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

    • Hi David. Signs, sines or sins probably make little difference after a frontal lobotomy.

    • Fernwood 2 Night only ran for a few months in 1977. It was one of the few fun shows. Otherwise, we had to watch British comedies on public television to get decent shows.
