This was the week that was . . .

I suspect that many of you who remember the Stratocruiser also remember the weekly TV show of the '60s that lends its name to my blog today. Or maybe it was the '70s?  For some reason the decades are blurring - especially those thirty-plus years thence.  

Now don't knock my syntax.  If you're going to let Sarah get away with it, by golly,  let me get away with it for gosh sakes.

Referencing my last blog's big questions, most of them were resolved quickly:

*Northwest and Delta shareholders both approved the merger.

*The Twins DID sweep Chicago last week.  It was impressive!

*Unfortunately we lost the "do or die" playoff in Chicago and we are presently seeking solace by fervently hoping the Rays sweep the White Sox today. 

*John McCain DID show up for the debate last Friday but he wasn't nearly as happy as his running mate appeared to be this week in HER debate.  Will McCain look at Obama in the next presidential debate this coming Tuesday?  Or maybe just peek once in awhile?

*And not so quickly; the US financial system WAS bailed out by congress - but it took another week to do it. Wall St. chastened? Oh dear.  That leaves another open question.

Lady Skywriter had a good week since the last post.  The inspiration bestowed by Lake Harriet did result in productivity. Fujiyama Trays and Oshibori Towels survived its first round with editor Joan Lee pretty much intact.  Thanks to all the things that editors do, it is much improved but intact nonetheless.  Cover designer Bill Moeger has signed on.  It will be great fun to see what he comes up with.  And graphic designer Suzi McDonnough is, as we speak, producing the Power Point presentation I will use for my first talk.

Speaking of the talk - it is Thursday, October 23, 2008 at 1:00 P.M. at the Minnetonka Community Center, 14600 Minnetonka Boulevard.  (Just 5 minutes west of I-494 on Minnetonka Boulevard.)  Refreshments are a surprise but I'll give you a hint: They relate in some way to the title of my up-coming book.  The center will charge a fee of $2.00 per person.

It's only an hour, and it should be good for a laugh or two - either on me or with me.  You be the judge.

Hope to see you there!
