So we learned today that Topshelf had a Pony when he was a kid, her name was Tammy. I donâ€™t know why, I just find the visual of a lilâ€™ Topppy riding a pony around his backyard to be a funny one. I guess Tammy kicked Toppyâ€™s mom one day & pissed her off & soon Tammy was gone. Toppyâ€™s friends used to tease Toppy about the loss of Tammy saying that she is now glue, and that would make Toppy cry.
As I am writing what I wrote above, I feel like I am writing the beginning to a childrenâ€™s bookâ€¦ â€śThe Story of Toppy & Tammy.â€ťÂ Here is the book cover:
This all came up because Toppy reported in sports that Real Quiet, a championship horse, is now dead. I asked probably the dumbest question of the dayâ€¦do they still use horses to make glue? And if they do, would they take a champion horse & turn it into glue, but make it a high end glue since it comes from greatness? They could call it â€śElmerâ€™s Goldâ€ť or something like that.
We also learned that toppy played a violin as a kid, is it me or was Toppy living on the Little House On The Prairie? Between Horses & Violins, Topshelfâ€™s last name must be Ingalls. OK, I really am getting old if I am making relates to Little House On The Prairie, quite possibly the most boring show to ever be successful on television. Itâ€™s sad when a Violin jam session at the end of the show would be the most exciting part of the programâ€¦that and when one of the Ingalls sisters set fire to the ranch and went blind or something.
The Deadliest Catch should call it a day. They are about to start Season 7, and itâ€™s going to look a lot different as three captains arenâ€™t returning, which means 2 boats wonâ€™t be back. Captains Jonathan & Andy Hillstrand are in the middle of being sued by the Discovery Channel over a spinoff show that they didnâ€™t finish, so they decided to leave the Deadliest Catch, and in a show of solidarityâ€¦.Sig Hansen from the Northwestern is leaving too. Both of these boats have been there for most of the Deadliest Catchâ€™s run (Northwestern since season 1, and the Time Bandit since season 2). Not to mention with the loss of Captain Phil, who passed awayâ€¦the heart & soul of this show is pretty much gone. I think the right thing to do is for the Deadliest Catch to call it a day.
KISS got snubbed again for the Rock N Roll Hall Of Fameâ€¦last year they got nominated & didnâ€™t get voted in & this year they didnâ€™t even get nominatedâ€¦might as well kick Gene & Paul in the balls. I donâ€™t get how you can have a â€śRock & Rollâ€ť Hall of Fame without KISS or RUSH in it, yet they arenâ€™tâ€¦.but Donavan & Donna Summers gets nominated. This hurts my brain.
So today was Intern Annabelle's last day...we are seriously going to miss her as she was a great intern! Not only was she great behind the scenes, but she also did some great interviews at events in the Northwest...if you missed my blog the other day I posted this best of reel that a listener named Mike made...it's real cool, and a testament to the great work & entertainment that Annabelle provided.
Good luck Annabelle!!!
Today's Video Blog is Annabelle's farewell to the H-Holes & The Rock-A-Holics.
