Twas The Night Before School

Twas the night before school when all through the house not a creature was stirring not even a facebook account.
The bathing suits were hung in the shower with care; In hopes that summer would soon be here.

The teachers were nestled all snug in their bed, while visions of classes well managed danced in their heads.
When out on the lawn there rose such a clatter, I sprang from my bed to see what was the matter.

Away to the window I flew like a flash, tore open the shutters and threw to the side the sash.
When what to my wondering eyes should appear,
but a Harley with Jax from "Sons of Anarchy".

I forgot what I was saying...

He was dressed in leather and denim, from his head to his brass knuckles.

He was sun tanned and tight, a right jolly young biker. I felt like I wanted to be a hitch hiker.
And I giggled when I saw him, in spite of myself!
A wink of his eye and a smirk on his face, soon let me know I belonged no other place.

He sprang in my dreams, gave me a smile to remember, and then away he flew like he had to be out by September.

As he revved his Harley and disappeared slowly out of sight, he yelled, "Happy School Year To All and To All Have A Hell Of A Night."

What's Your 20? I Got My Rabbit Ears On...

I would like to thank the Cloo television channel on AT&T Uverse for their run of 70's television shows last week.
I turned it into a project, recorded different programs and really took a good look at what I once admired and thought was 'real life' as a child.
The following are what I took from my big research project last week.

1. Why is Sabrina wearing a turtle neck while Jill wears a vest without a shirt or bra?

2. Why is Quincy wearing a sweater and a shirt while his date on this house boat wears a bikini?

3. Why do all the bad guys say, "Shut up" to each other while sitting in plain view of their soon to be         victim who always gets away on foot?
             * Did the bad guys get caught for lack of communication?
             * Were the cars that much slower than humans?
             * This was a time when people actually walked and looked up (no texting), so how is it we    
                never saw these bad guys in plain sight?

4.  Why did all the actresses portraying singers in the 70's sound like Kathie Lee Gifford? OR did she make all those cameos while also singing on 'Name That Tune'?

5. How did so many men with really bad acne get those acting jobs? You and I both know they would never be hired today.

6. Why did females throw in a country accent when their character was meant to be innocent or dumb?

7.  What was the actual weight of a cell phone in the 70's?    < 3lbs (I googled it.)

8.   Were men this horny and easy in the 70's? (Yikes!)

9.   Was Bosley gay? The Angels seduced every other man, but he seemed completely unaffected.

10.  How in the heck did Jed Clampett become a detective?

11. Laverne was a hoe. Shirley was a tease.

12. Why did James Evans have to get killed off and yet racist Archie Bunker outlived him and Edith?!?

                                             WOULD SOMEBODY TELL ME PLEASE.
