A BBHQ Insta-Quote:

Our Constitution was made for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.

And now, a word from our sponsor:




This Week with the Chicowitz

On Top of Old Smoky

The Boy Scout motto is “Be prepared.” Once a Boy Scout, always a Boy Scout. Though it is not yet Labor Day, we are busy planning our Fall getaway. I think we’ll head up to the mountains again. This is what I wrote of my last visit up there:

The Great Smoky Mountains National Park is the most widely visited national park in the country. The most popular time is when the leaves are changing colors — late October. So, it is an understatement to say that we were not alone.

It is ironic (and for us naturalists, very fortunate) that while it may be nothing but a smelly mass of humanity in Gatlinburg — 5 miles away, at the edge of the mountains, you can have an entire forest to yourself. We got up early one morning and hiked out to Laurel Falls. What amazed me was the total silence... until we were about a hundred yards from the falls.

A Few of Our Favorite Things
One of over 200 questions in The BBHQ Pop Quiz collection:




The BBHQ Pop Quiz pops up all over BBHQ. Wander around!



Eye Remember... August 29, 1967:


"The day the running stopped."

There was a "one-armed" man. And he did kill Richard Kimble's wife!



On August 29, 1967, the final installment of the series finale of "The Fugitive" was broadcast on ABC. We finally learned the truth... 68 million of us.

I was one of the 68 million. I remember it well.

The critically acclaimed series aired for 4 years in the 60s. It remains a classic today.




The BBHQ Bare-Bones
Boomer Assessment Test


The BBHQ Official Baby Boomer Qualifying Exam contains some questions that might stump some boomers. So we're working on developing a series of questions that absolutely every boomer would know the answer, and for which non-boomers would be left behind. Here is another one of our questions:

4. A classic boomer-era hit, written by Carol King, made famous by the Shirelles, Will You Love Me...

  tomorrow
  in the morning
  after I'm gone
  after I turn out the lights
  when the bill comes due


Simple enough, huh? What other questions should we ask that would clearly identify a boomer and yet stump the unfortunates masses? Please click reply and give us your ideas.



This is the gift we have been waiting for. Surely it has to be #1 on our wish list.

Your eyes are not deceiving you. No "trick photography" involved. It is exactly what is appears to be.



It's the official gigantic, cockroach pool raft!

This unique treasure is 70" long, made of heavy duty, durable vinyl. Kangaroo Products warns that "extermination services will not work in swimming pools." Let the buyer beware!

The BBHQ Joke of the Week
We call this one "Big Sister."

Two young daughters were having a discussion about family resemblance.

"I look like Mom," said Kathy, the nine-year-old, "but I have Dad's eyes and Dad's lips."

Fix-year-old Karen said, "And I look just like Dad but I have light hair."

Then Karen turned to her mother. "Mom," she asked, "what does Dad have to do with us being born, anyway?"

The older sister jumped right in: "Don't be silly. Dad is the one who drove Mom to the hospital."





Have a great week. We'll share the fun again next Monday.
