Houston? We Have a Problem

You have to be 'a certain age' to remember Commander Tom. He was a staple on WKBW (Buffalo, channel 7) for about a hundred years or so - first on Rocketship 7, followed by The Commander Tom Show.

Even if you never crossed paths with the Commander, have a look at the following clip from his old show. I can't decide if he's bored, or quietly earnest about his work. Either way, watch for a particularly uncomfortable exchange (about 1 minute in) between the Commander and a young fan on the topic of cigarette companies. It's weird.

Time for Gifts

'Fits and starts' pretty much describes my blogging efforts lately. I have simply been feeling overwhelmed by 100 other things lately - with the Must Do and Like To Do camps often in mortal, bloody opposition. Blue skies are ahead, I think. That's what I have to believe for sanity's sake.

While I simply lack time right now, I feel obligated - to myself if no one else - to offer a gift or two. The simple truth is that I've been relying on the fruitful efforts of other Bloggites to keep me entertained in my passive stupor the last few weeks. As recompense, I offer these mementos from Star Wars Celebration IV. I hope you enjoy them. But if you do not, then please don't click here.
