Links here are good only for the week of September 4. After that... is anybody's guess.

The Upper and the Real Deal
The BBHQ Monday Morning Upper

Oh Lord, it's Hard to be Humble

Click the picture for the BBHQ Monday Morning Upper.



Our Upper this week was inspired by our "When the Music was Fun" essay.

Yes, this is fun. And it is also a sing-along. It’s 4 minutes, and you must sing along. So be prepared.

OK, we give up. We surrender. We are still caught up in "those lazy, hazy, crazy days of summer." We were just having too dog-gone much fun to prepare a newsletter last weekend.

We're trying hard to get back in the swing, but... And while we do intend to be here next Monday (September 11), we will be AWOL the following Monday, September 18. We'll be attending an annual hurricane-preparedness drill... scheduled this year for Corpus Christi, Texas.

A month late and a hundred sixty billion dollars short, huh?)

BBHQ

We'll try to get back to our full-featured newsletter in the first week of October.... weather permitting.

This Week with the Chicowitz


Another Side of the Greatest Generation

Mr. and Mrs. Dave Levine had three baby boomer kids. Kenny is the youngest, Sally is in-between, and Norm, the oldest, is my age. The Levines moved to Shaker Heights, Ohio (a very affluent community) in the 50s because they wanted the best possible education for their kids. They were not wealthy, but they knew this was the right thing for their kids. It is clear that nothing was more important to them.

Mrs. Levine did not win the Congressional Medal of Honor. She was not the first woman to walk on the moon, or even the first one to fly into space. She was not the CEO of a major corporation. She did not write a best-selling novel; she never appeared on Oprah's show; she never rubbed shoulders with Gloria Steinem. She never had her fifteen minutes of fame. She was just a mother, and a wife, and a sister. It's pretty basic stuff.

But she was one of the most decent, genuine, dignified, and honorable people I have ever had the privilege of knowing.

The BBHQ Trivia Teaser & Subscriber Evaluation
Here are three questions from the BBHQ cloud:


1. First, our current events question:
Last week, ESPN pulled the scheduled announcer for a college football game in Virgina for what reason?

  He tweeted a support message for Donald Trump
  He announced a planned sex-reassignment operation and showed up wearing a dress
  He participated in a segment on Fox News
  He announced that he is a global-warming denier
  his name is Robert Lee


2. Speaking of "those lazy, hazy, crazy days of summer," that is the title of a hit song in 1963 by what singer?



3. We're going to focus on song titles using girls' names here in the trivia section... until... until we run out of girls. We have binders full of them.

This uncharacteristically soft song was a hit in 1976 by a heavy-metal group.

     _________, I hear you calling
     But I can't come home right now
     Me and the boys are playing
     And we just can't find the sound


Who's the girl?    



Grade our Newsletter: How did we do this week?
      A: Great! Lottsa' fun.

      B: Pretty good.

      C: So-so.

      D: Eh... not so good.

      F: A swing and a miss.


What say you? Comments for the good of the order:






There are no prizes here... it's just for fun.


The BBHQ Joke of the Week
We call this one "No Words."

No words; it stands on its own. You either get it... or you don't.



BBHQ



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