    Default Little things that remind you of the Eagles

    We have a guy running for office in one of our local county elections named Glenn Millican. Every time I see his name, of course, I think, this will be Glenn's name once we adopt the custom of the man taking the wife's surname.

    That is just too good Dreamer! And everybody else too.

    I have just been sent a notification from Sky (our TV provider). It reads thus:
    'An After Hours Special for you'

    and goes on to describe a new series called 'After Hours'.

    'A music fan turns to a local radio show when his heart is broken for the first time'

    Sounds like I will have to watch this one, and it airs for the first time on Thursday - just in time for Glenn 's birthday!!

    Earlier today, I heard Lunatic Fringe by Red Rider. Every time I hear it, I think of the opening scene of the Smuggler's Blues episode of Miami Vice. Of course, I think of Glenn as well.

    Out for a drive yesterday and ended up behind a utility truck with the logo, "WEB-DON," on the rear door. Turns out it's the name of a countertop company based in Charlotte, NC, but that's not what came to mind when I saw it!

    My uncle has changed the lyrics to THIO. With it being fall, it's now The Heater's On.

    I know this is awful, and it's certainly not a "little thing", but when I first head about the attacks yesterday at an Eagles of Death Metal concert... knowing that they named their band after our guys...

    I didn't know that they actually named the band after "our Eagles"!

    Yes - the joke was that they were a mellower version of death metal.

    My crazy uncle decided to have a laugh last night. He made a meatloaf for supper. Guess what he spelled out on ketchup on top of the meatloaf? G-L-E-N. He didn't have enough room to put the second "n", though.
