Dean Martin and Victor Borge — Musical Phonetic Punctuation, from The Dean Martin Show.
What’s on your mind?
This is funny stuff!
hey newton — glad ya liked it. how’s the west bay tonight?
hi suz, hi newt–great VB routine, hadn’t seen it with dean martin before
Rained all day, t’was great. How’s it up there?
hey spur — how ya doing? borge was on the dean martin show often so i wasn’t able to identify when this aired.
wet and the winds finally died down. now there is a chance of snow overnight — probably not so much here but it may be cold enough — that cold arctic air is arriving *brrrr*
i didn’t much watch dean martin, but my dad was a borge fan so we watched all his specials
Oh this is funny, and I had never seen it before. Thanks Suz, and keep warm
my mom was a huge dean martin fan…. and we all liked borge — us kids for the humor and my mom thought he was teaching us about classical music
hey margot — how’s ohio tonight? glad ya like it
dick interviews jimi
my mother couldn’t stand him. here’s a muppet one
All is well, thanks:)
don, dean, and roy
spur, my mother felt the same way. Loved Borge, couldn’t stand Dean Martin.
ooooooo thanks spur

hey robert — how’s pa tonight?
mad at ma…
ha! weather dood is showing a snowy mix falling in northwest portland…. tis down to 41 here on the coast…
doing math again?
Pennsylvania has a heatwave near the 50s coming in Thursday for an extended period.
a warm up before the real cold hits i’m not familiar with pa weather patterns
oh that’s sweet. until i started posting muppet fridays, i did not know that the muppets never had a guest on for a second time on the muppet show… on specials, yes but not on the actual show
LMAO! I remember watching the Kettles on afternoon Saturday TV when I was a kid. I remember that math scene. It’s probably why I always got the answers right in algebra, but the teacher marked them wrong because I didn’t use the proper method…
i didn’t know they had guests at all
That was great!
We had the coldest December in a few years. February weather. So temps should be more like early spring for a while now.
:~) that was two different ones (i hope)
i’ve not seen a ma and pa on tv in a long time — when i was a kid they were on every sat afternoon
Turner Classic Movies runs the Kettles movies sporatically throughtout the year.
been the wettest december here since 1996 — which was also the year of the big flood in tillamook
that explains it — i don’t get that channel on my basic cable
ma and pa lego
falling asleep, going to crawl off–g’nite all
Don’t want no heavy rain ’round here till I can safely get to the roof where it’s leaking into room in the attic. Need to replace some shingles.
the roof is leaking
Circle 8 Writers Group’s compiling stories and poems for a Valentine anthology. My daughter has taken my place as editor. Apparently, the first story for the book I submitted made her blush that her Dad would write such intimate passages.
does she write also? sci-fi like you?
Annie Lennox is on Jimmy Fallon singing right now.
She has her BA in creative writing and is just a half year shy of her MFA. And yes, I’ve a collection of her stories, mostly fantasy. She writes better than me, that’s for sure.
She needs to develope credits in editing to get in the door of publishing. She thinks Circle 8 can help her with that.
won’t air for a while here on the left coast…. we are time zone challenged yanno
wow — NJ calls out National Guard to help w/ crippling blizzard while Christie refuses to cut short FL vacation
I think his spokesperson quipped,”What’s he supposed to do? Return and shovel snow?”
Jersey voted for him. They deserve him.
DM and VB are a hoot! I remember Borge doing it but the two together is synergistic laughter.
Snow level to come down to 500′ tonight, but I’m below that so maybe some slush. 1″ predicted, yeah right! A regular whiteout that will put NYC to shame!
egad, hope the nj voters remember his lack of leadership come the next gov’s election
Keep in mind, they’ve been drinking and bathing in landfill runoff for decades. Brains are very sensitive to such things….
hey starbuck — how ya doing tonight? i’m below it too :) i would not mind snow as long as i’m stocked up so i don’t have to go anywhere
Weatherman says it all! Oh, well,I don’t have to go anywhere. I just cringe over the drop in temp and increase in heating bills!
i gotta run into town tomorrow to get more compressed logs… i was hoping this batch would last to the 1st but didn’t quite make it…
Where do you go for them? Anywhere near my part of town? (Mall 205).
tillamook — i don’t go over the hill unless i have to, esp when there is snow and ice
What’s the price of a gallon of gas in your area?
Yeah, I thought of that immediately after submitting comment!
last time i bought (a few weeks ago) it was running around 3.14
hehehehe i’m a california wuss when it comes to driving in the snow. i don’t have much experience with it and am a nervous wreck when doing so.
when i drove to jen’s on thanksgiving, i was the second vehicle behind the snow plow on 6 headed over there… yikes — that was the trip my power steering pump blew
Same here. Been hearing predictions of $5 a gallon in a year because of high demands of China and others
saw that prediction on my news tonight… by the start of 2012 due to increased demand and dwindling supply. when i moved up here, it was running close to 4.50… that was summer of 08
Right! At the same time, another 1000,000 people become destitute when they join the 99 club. Boy, that will put a crimp into long trips.
We have gone over to the dark side. And it started back in the 1600′s.
Some peoples’ high demand for $$$, too.
hey duncan — how’s la county tonight?
Good and cool. How are you doin’?
Some have apparently decided most should not be able to afford even the basics of a civilized life.
Is is a game they’re playing that they have grown too committed to to put the brakes on before even they go over the cliff with us?
Maybe that’s what all this Mayan Calendar biz is really all about…
cozy inside but its cold and wet outside. bailey cat is snoozing next to the stove which is cranking out the heat tonight :) token is asleep in his bed at my feet. a nice night after the howling winds of the past couple nights
time for me to head out folks. thanks for letting me spend a wee bit of your evening with you tonight.
I predict that as fewer and fewer remain to claim the top spot, they will kill each other to get it. Sort of like the 10th Victim on steroids! Of course the person with it all cannot buy a thing because no one will be around to make it.
The Midas touch writ large…..
Wow, that’s winter like I haven’t seen in years. Of course my critters are LA types who crawl under the covers when it gets below 60.
I’ll be wandering off myself soon.
Goodnight, Suzanne, stay warm.
You’re probably right.
The North Oregon Coast gets like that every year. Sometimes even snow on the beach!
Off to bed.
Goodnight, Starbuck. Maybe the top 2% will wake up as 99ers and vice versa. Would make for a fun holiday movie at least.
