“Winning doesn’t always mean being first. Winning means you’re doing better than you’ve ever done before.” — Bonnie Blair

I received a plethora (I learned this word from Cliff Weimer—it means “a lot”) of entries in the latest Thrilling Days of Yesteryear giveaway...oddly enough, I think we had more people participate in the previous “Full Details” contest.  But that’s just nitpicking on my part, and though I would dearly love to be able to… Continue reading “Winning doesn’t always mean being first.

“Just when I thought I was out… they pull me back in…” 

I mentioned on the blog back in February that circumstances were shaping up for another eBay DVD liquidation sale here at Rancho Yesteryear—what I have facetiously decided to call “The Great DVD Purge of 2019.”  I had one or two members of the TDOY faithful ask me about it further on Facebook, and while I… Continue reading “Just when I thought I was out… they pull me back in…”

(If that’s not enough of a giant hint, I don’t know what else would be.)  So I was a little late… Continue reading Call me anything you want…just don’t call me late for winner!

“Giveaways are my stock-in-trade…”

Apologies for the quiet on the blog recently but it’s just been one of those months: off-blog chores to do for Ma and Pa, and for a moment there, I thought I might not be able to pay the income tax this year.

I can’t win for losin’ you

My longtime paisan Jeff Lane broke the news to me on Facebook yesterday that country singer-songwriter Earl Thomas Conley left this world for a better one yesterday at the age of 77.  Blake Shelton, who scored one of his early chart hits (#18 in 2002) with the Conley-penned All Over Me, remarked on Twitter that ETC “was my all… Continue reading I can’t win for losin’ you

“I’m a mad dog whose only concern is winning.” — Charles Barkley

We had a very impressive number of entries in this week’s “Loneliest Mile” giveaway at Thrilling Days of Yesteryear...and while I would like this to be a Tee Ball tournament and hand out copies of this Broadway’s My Beat collection (from Radio Spirits) to everybody—I have only the one.  It will soon be winging its… Continue reading “I’m a mad dog whose only concern is winning.” — Charles Barkley
