Janie looked at her husband with disgust. “Why do you insist on being so obnoxious when we go shopping? What you said to that poor girl was way out of line. She was just doing her job.”
“I am so sick of masks and being told I have to wear them when I go out. It makes me so claustrophobic. The president says it will be over soon and besides, we are not in one of those hot spot states.”
“Do you know why we are not a hot spot?”
“Because the rona doesn’t like us?” Jon said with a smile.
“No, because out community followed the scientist’s recommendations not the president’s. And we have been wearing masks all along.”
“Fine, I won’t bitch at the person guarding the door anymore.”

It all starts with a small seed that becomes a big idea.
Just a personal note to all of those on the US West coast… stay safe from the fires and smoke. I have checked in with a few of my friends but still know a couple in that area I haven’t heard from. Only 3 and 1/2 month left of this awful year. I really hope 2021 is better. (((HUGS)))
Fandango’s word is lampoon… which of course makes me think National Lampoon. Now I was too into Mad Magazine to read National Lampoon before the magazine folded. But back in 1978 a film hit the screens that still remains a top comedy for me. As I look back on Animal House I recall the song that took the movie to lows and highs… Shout. I hope you enjoy this look back at Otis Day and the Knights during the toga party…

I took a walk through my mind To see what was taking up space Memories both good and bad Were scattered all about I found scenes from my childhood Encountered some old friends Watched my daughter being born again Picked up a forgotten dream or two And when I had seen enough I wiped away the tears Because there really is no going back To try it one more time Besides I can’t relive the pain Of losing you again
