Friday Five (Vol. 6)

1)  Seeing Steve 'n' Seagulls perform Sunday.

For those unfamiliar with this band, they are a - get this - Finnish country band that plays bluegrass covers of well known hard rock and heavy metal songs such as AC/DC's Thunderstruck.  It was so much fun!

2)  CBS Sunday Morning's very poignant Celebrating Charlie episode (also last Sunday), honoring long time anchor, Charles Osgood's last episode and subsequent retirement.

I will miss him because I have grown accustomed to his company on quiet Sunday mornings.  However, I completely understand why at the age of 83 he would want to retire and spend more time in his home in the south of France.  

3) The return of the Showtime series Shameless!  I'm thrilled that I don't have to wait until January to see what the dysfunctional Gallagher family is up to.  

4) Blogger Love:  I love what Steph @ Life According to Steph had to say in her post I Knew When I Met You An Adventure Was Going to Happen.  It is a beautiful tribute to her husband and marriage on her anniversary.  All too often love and marriage is portrayed in blogs as perfect.  I enjoy posts that keep it real.  Steph consistently keeps it real.

5) This:


This has become my new favorite commercial.  As I've mentioned before, it doesn't take much to amuse me...  LOL!

Have a great Friday and an even better weekend!  As always, thanks for stopping by!

Linking up with:


  1. I love your list!! My husband loves shameless! I read that one to him out loud and he was excited to hear it. Yay! That cartoon - too funny! And I also love that iced T ad. I laughed out loud when I first saw it! Happy Friday!!

  2. You need to see Anna Silk's flight attendant commercial.

  3. I love that Ice T commercial too!!! Hahaha. I watched a few seasons of Shameless and OMG I LOVED it but somewhere along the way I stopped. Probably because I was out of seasons to watch? I really want to start it from the beginning. Maybe once I get caught up on The Walking Dead...

  4. That commercial is the absolute greatest! And aw Charlie! He deserves a relaxing retirement! :)

  5. I don't think I've seen/read/heard anything about Shameless, but I always enjoy anything that William H. Macy does.

  6. CBS SUNDAY MORNING is a damned near perfect program, and i, too, am sad that charlie's gone. but i think jane's a pretty good choice for his replacement. i like her. she seems like a cool chick.

    and i like that geico ad, too. it's pretty good.
