Mudgeonly Monday Meme Dump

Herb’s Blog, Herbdate 23039 – 1079

Here’s the haps:

So I just wasn’t feeling all that curmudgeonly today. I have a good life and a lot to be thankful for. Oh, I could find stuff to complain about, but I’m just not feeling it. I had started a category called Curmudgeonly Monday some time ago but there were a couple of posts that were more positive and upbeat than deserved to be called curmudgeonly. The erroneously named Dumbest Blogger suggested I try Mudgeonly Monday, which I liked. I now use whichever one seems to fit at the moment. Since I haven’t done this for quite some time I am including 20 items in a variety that ranges from the somewhat serious to the funny but not in any particular order. I did comment on a couple this time, however.

**** Edit/Add Herbdate 23448 – I’m sorry I had to remove the memes associated with this post but I have been having trouble with some files as noted here. Memes will be re-added later elsewhere after intense renaming. Sorry again. ****

I can remember a time when anyone you met downtown was “dressed up.” The stores were open until 5, Monday – Thursday, and stayed open until 9 on Friday. This gave working people, farmers, factory workers, et. al. the opportunity to, “go downtown and do the shopping.” Anytime someone went out of their house they dressed nice, though. The stores closed “early” on Saturdays, early being 4 O’Clock, and then nothing was open at all on Sunday. My mom used to say they “Rolled up the sidewalks at 5 O’Clock.”

    I was entertained by balsa wood airplanes in the 90s, so there’s no need to go all the way back to the 70s.

      Well, they are pretty entertaining. I think the ten cent price was meant to be a bit of a surprise, probably. They are still fun but are over a dollar now, I think.

        I have no idea what they cost in the 90s. When you’re a kid everything is free until you’re about eight.

          That’s true. I used to try to get the one with the rubber band driven propeller when I could.

    Hmm, really funny. I just read an article about homeschooling and it is said there are more minority families do homeschooling for their kids.

    Years from now, people will be wondering where the name of your Mud Monday came from. Great selection.

    I never thought of a Push Up as being in a toilet paper roll. But that’s the kind of push up contest I could win.
