The Clouds Will Soon Roll By

Got incredibly lucky this morning. It was cloudy and windy all day, but it rained early and was only damp when I left (on time) for work. By the time I got was just damp again. It went from being way too cold for this time of year to being way too warm, in the 70's, and still really windy. 

Maybe it's just as well that there was a called-out and I ended up checking all day. We were dead for most of the day besides the noon and 3 PM rush hours anyway. It's the day before the beginning of the month, the weather is terrible, and frankly, there just isn't much going on right now. We're still between holidays. 

Hurried straight home after work to avoid the weather. Went right upstairs when I got in and changed. Watched Match Game '77 while waiting for dinner. Buzzr skipped ahead a bit to the week with Eva Gabor making her second appearance on the show and Gary Burghoff turning up for the first time in a while. A funny older lady was a sweetheart, but didn't have the best answers. The panel had more fun making use of the reverb machine with their answers for "Death __" on the Audience Match. 

The next one skipped ahead again, this time to see Gary imitate his former teacher Charles Nelson Reilly several times. Gene's happier to admire Eva Gabor's decalage in an off-the-shoulder ruffled blouse. The others did better with the Audience Match "The Way __." 

Match Game PM started off with a guy who could turn his feet inside out. He claimed it didn't hurt, but it sure looked painful to me and the panel! Brett probably wished she could twist into pretzels while trying to figure out "Smoked __" in the Head-to-Head.

Did a few Bluey shorts as dinner finished. Bingo's "Featherwand" can make things heavy. She's hoping to use it to make her family let her go to a birthday party with her sister. She can put her family into "Dance Mode" by flicking their tails. This leads to busting moves in some very awkward places, like while crossing the street. Bandit and his younger brother Stripe play "Squash" while the girls pretend that they're playing a video game and controlling their movements. Bingo is upset when Uncle Stripe doesn't win and Bluey says big siblings always come out on top. To Bingo's delight, that inspires Uncle Stripe to practice harder. 

Finished off the night after dinner and clean-up on HBO Max with Going Hollywood. I go further into this vehicle for Marion Davies and Bing Crosby at my Musical Dreams Movie Reviews blog.
