As the year draws to a close, I’m tempted to say, “Good riddance.” A lot of super things happened to us this year, but I’m ticked off at 2013 for not seeing my Mom recovered from her dysphagia. Poor showing, 2013. Shame!
On the up side, tests show she does NOT have COPD or lupus. Or, come to that, Housemaid’s Knee. So that’s good.
Bidding adieu to the year put me in mind of the first political satire television show, possibly ever, That Was The Week That Was, also known as TW3. It started in England and moved to The United States. Tom Lehrer wrote for the show and recorded an album of songs from it: That Was The Year That Was, an album which I still own.
I was delighted to find that one of my favorite comedy routines, “The $65 Funeral,” originally appeared on that show.
I’m posting at Fatal Foodies today about New Year’s foods.
