@viva923  you're not allowed any kind of spread on toast or toaster waffles, etc?  I've never been heavy handed with butter, margarine or anything like that since I was a kid.  That said, I'd choke on dry toast, lol.

 

@Epicurean So glad to read that you are on schedule for your vaccine.  I signed myself and my sister up at the local Meijer's.  Neither of us is in the early eligibility however I'm hoping the Johnson and Johnson vaccine being in the pipeline will speed that up.  Actually I'm hoping for the J&J.


 

@Bird mama   I eat dry toast, just toast it lightly, and eat with a cup of tea, no choking. Smiley Happy

Good Morning, it's been cold enough at night to freeze the water that I put out for the squirrels/birds and whatever swings by to eat Woman Happy  It was windy yesterday and when I saw the blizzard conditions in Wyoming and Colorado I was grateful for the wind.

 

I cut up the boxes from the chair and bundled the pieces with twine.  The garbage men have come and gone and the garage is once again tidy.

hey all

I could eat jams,jellies,butter and all that stuff on bread but then my cholesteral / triglyiserides shoots sky high causing doctor to get concerned. that is why I don't use anything on anything, less chance of my numbers shoot sky high, at one time many years ago, my cholesteral was clocking in at near 300, can't do that any longer got my numbers down to below 190 now which doctor is happy about.

 

a damp cold today, brisk chilly wind. walked with heavy coat,ski hats,ski gloves neck scarf. this that storm from the rockies that dumped all that snow out west.

 

ok guys later

So I'm watching an episode of the Rifleman (The Challenge).  I have it on in the background and this is one of those TV episodes (common in westerns) that have a recurring song running through it about one of the characters.  In this case it's an ode about Jake Pardee.

 

So I'm sitting here, online window shopping for shoes, clothes, home accessories, you name it and I hear this song.  I think to myself, man o man that sounds like Tony the Tiger (Frosted Flakes mascot).  I shake it off thinking that I'm hallucinating.  The song comes on again in the episode and I think, that sounds like the man who sang the theme song from the cartoon How the Grinch stole Christmas.

 

Finally I say to myself, okay, who is that?

 

Turns out I'm not crazy, it is the man who voiced Tony the Tiger and the man who sang the Grinch song.

 

He's an actor named Thurl Ravenscroft (he even has a cool name)

He voiced Tony the Tiger for 50 years.  His voice acting career began in 1940 and lasted until his death in 2005 at the age of 91.

 

Normally these recurrent songs throughout an episode of TV get on my nerves.  Not with Mr. Ravenscroft though.. his deep bass voice is smooth and I don't mind.

@Bird mama 

 

I kept staring at that picture, saying to myself "he reminds me of someone from old black and white movies;"  then it hit me ... your Thuri Ravenscroft (cool name indeed) looks like ...  (you may be too young to remember him)
