You may have noticed that I haven't posted a "W" flag in quite a while. As a true Cubs' fan, I'm always reluctant to crow too loud when things are going well. That's because, as soon as you get your hopes up too high, they'll knock the bleacher seat right out from under you. BUT, this year is just looking too good to sit by and not hope for really BIG things. As we speak, our "Boys in Blue" have the best record in ALL of Major League baseball with 33 wins. I'm stopping right here and, in true blue fan fashion, I'm going to drive my Edsel to the nearest 8-track dealer to buy some Disco tapes to listen to while shooting some photos with my new Polaroid camera. By the way, I've been told that some of you don't understand the significance of the "W" flag. Very simply, after a Cubs' win, they raise a white flag with a large W above Wrigley Field so that passersby and folks riding the "EL" are made aware of the victory. That's my story and I'm sticking to it!
I'm a retired commercial artist originally from Chicago now living in Southwest Wisconsin. I spent the better part of fifty years in advertising and related industries.I tend to find humor in most things I encounter so I thought it might brighten up some rather dull boring days if I shared "what made me laugh" that day. Please feel free to join in by sharing things that made you laugh. Only limitation is that the comments are "G"r rated. I have ten grandchildren and some of them can read pretty well. (Especially the ones in college)
