Christmas in August…

General Barnicke: Are you telling me that you finished your training on your own?

Winger: That’s a fact, Jack!

Rest of platoon: That’s a fact, Jack!

And that, my friends, is the classic exchange of the classic graduation ceremony scene, the best part of the entire film, at least for me. I remember seeing that on the commercial trailer, and I knew I needed to see this flick.

I realize that I am very late putting up yesterday’s blog, which means I am also behind in today’s blog. Late has been the norm for me lately, but when I finally do get to it, I still enjoy it.

So, back to Stripes Week, the final week in Tie Week Month…

It's beginning to look a lot like a Christmas tie...

My Tie du Yesterday is actually a Christmas tie…red with small green stripes (or is it green with large red stripes? Hmmm?), the TdY is from Alynn Neckwear. I am pretty positive I picked this one up at good ol’ Salvation Army at some point last year; I wore it during the last holiday season. Look at me using the power of deduction…a regular Sherlock Holmes, eh?

Hmm, the picture actually tones down the Noelesque qualities of this strip. But, believe me, in person, I got a couple of comments that made me think this tie, or at least this shirt/tie combo, would have done alright during Ugly Tie Week.

Here is reprise of the PCC, the Pop Culture Corner…I should have been doing this more often. I have always strived (striven? strivated?) to educate our youths with the wisdom of 60s, 70s & 80s culture. Wisdom may be a stretch…

Since it’s Stripes Week, let’s talk about Fruit Stripe Gum. It was the cool gum for a while during my youth, but you’ll have to read the Wiki link to get some real history.

Thanks for reading, patiently…Brooke
