Weekend Open Mic

Weather: Cooler weather is finally upon us this week. This is more typical for mid-October in the St. Louis area.

The week: I’m going to a chili cookoff on Saturday with friends and then I’m going to do some yard work on Sunday. Not much else is planned for the week ahead.

TV: We’re finishing up the first season of Big Sky 16 episodes (HULU). I started watching Seinfeld (Netflix) from the very first episode of season 1. I watched one episode of Squid Game (Netflix). It’s way out there. I may try another episode or two, I’m not sure.

That’s it from B&P Headquarters in St. Louis. What’s going on in your world?

Weather: It’s about 10 degrees (F) warmer than average in these parts at this time. Some trees are just starting to change colors and some leaves are starting to fall, but it’ll be a couple of weeks probably before it really gets pretty here. I think they said the peak will be the last week of October.

TV: We watched The Many Saints of Newark (HBO) movie, a prequel to The Sopranos, which I think is my favorite TV series for quite a while, now. It features Ray Liotta and Michael Gandolfini, who is the actual son of James Gandolfini who played Tony Soprano. Young Michael plays a young Tony Soprano. I thought it was really good.
We’re also watching our usual shows plus we’re a few episodes into Big Sky (HULU). I wasn’t so sure about it during the first episode, but there was an interesting twist that made me want to watch more.

Weather: Starting October with a little wet and a little warm weather. It’s a few degrees warmer than average for these parts, but some leaves are starting to fall. They say that peak foliage will be in the last week of October in my area.

The week: Trying to catch up on some stuff that I put off the last couple of weeks. Having some family over on Saturday for lunch and to play cards. Sunday we’re probably going to go to the movies.
Buster has had some skin allergies and he’s been to the vet a few times in the last month or so. He now has an inflamed ear that we’re treating.

TV: Like above we’re trying to catch up on some stuff we recorded, like The Walking Dead, Ted Lasso, A Million Little Things, and a couple of others.

Weather: After a couple of cool days, summer is trying to get its last hurrah in this week before turning a little cooler later in the week.

The week: Spending the weekend at a reunion of old friends, many of whom I’ve known for 50+ years. Sunday night we’re going to see the Rolling Stones kick off their No Filter Tour in St. Louis. I don’t go to many concerts these days but I wanted to see the Stones.

TV: We really didn’t watch much TV this week as I was working on a video project most evenings.

Weather: What appears to be the last bits of summer will take us to the official last day of summer, as Wednesday kicks off the fall season with cooler weather.

The week: I have a busy week ahead working on a video program for an organization I belong to which is happening next weekend. We’ll try to slip in a dinner with friends and maybe a movie one night too.
I’m still having some issues with my back and one of my two feet, but I’m a little better than I was last weekend. I’ve upped my anti-inflammatory meds for a week to see if that helps.

TV: We finished Clickbait (Netflix) a couple of nights ago. It’s good and has some twists to it. We started on the newest season of Lucifer (Netflix) but I think it jumped the shark for me when it became a cartoon, literally a cartoon. Not sure I’ll continue with it. I think I’ll be looking for something else.

Weather: After a slightly cooler few days it looks like summer is still hanging on in the St. Louis area. But some leaves are just beginning to fall and things will be changing soon.

9/11: Today is a somber day as we reflect on the tragedy of September 11, 2001. 20 years later it still hurts.

The week: We had planned to take a few days off next week and travel out west but for a few reasons we’ve decided to postpone our trip. One of the reasons is that I tweaked my back on Thursday and I’m hobbling around like the old man that I am, or even like a much older man.

We’re going to help out Saturday night at a trivia night (like I’ll be a lot of help) and having the family over on Sunday for a birthday celebration.

TV: We’re still watching The Walking Dead, Ted Lasso weekly and are about 5 or 6 episodes in on Click Bait (Netflix).

Computer: I purchased a new computer this week and I’ve been setting it up and transferring files from the old computer for a few days. My old computer was freezing up when I was working on video editing. The new one should work much better.

Weather: Starting out September a little warm but definitely cooler than the last few weeks have been.

The week: Having a delayed (by 1 year due to the pandemic) wedding party on Saturday. Nothing planned for Sunday or Labor Day Monday. Going to a Sex, Drugs & Rock N’ Roll Trivia night next weekend.

TV: We finished The Chair (Netflix) starring Sandra Oh. We’re continuing to watch Tedd Lasso (Apple TV+) as the episodes come out weekly. I really like Ted Lasso. We’re also watching the final season of The Walking Dead and Talking Dead (AMC) weekly. We’re a few episodes into Hit And Run (Netflix) and it’s pretty interesting.

Weather: Looks like we’ve got a warm week coming up with temps in the upper 90s and high humidity. I’m ready for a bit of fall weather.

The week: We’re going to the Cardinals baseball game on Saturday and we have a family birthday dinner gathering mid-week. Other than that, not much is happening.

TV: We watched a couple more episodes of This Is Pop (Netflix) and Ted Lasso (Apple+). We’re also watching the second season of Outer Banks (Netflix).

Weather: A decent weekend after a pretty warm week that ended in storms Thursday night. A slightly cooler week ahead. I’ll spend the weekend in Kansas City but I think the weather will be similar there.

The week: We’ll be visiting my brother in Kansas City this weekend but not much else planned until next weekend when we’re going to a Cardinals baseball game.

TV: Haven’t watched much this week, but found some good episodes of This Is Pop (Netflix) a series about pop music. We also are watching Ted Lasso (Apple+ weekly) and enjoy that.

Weather: After several days with milder temperatures and much lower humidity the new week starts out as a rather typical August week – higher temperatures and higher humidity.

The week: The weekend starts out busy for us as we’re working our 36th somewhat annual mud volleyball tournament.  Next weekend we’re going to visit my brother in Kansas City.

TV: We started watching Ted Lasso (Apple+) and watched a couple of episodes of Heist (Netflix).  It’s been a rather busy week, so not a lot of TVing going on.
