I gave my wife a brand new watch for Christmas - waterproof,shockproof, unbreakable, and antimagnetic. Absolutely could happen to it. She lost it - Milton Berle.
Welcome to my Hump of the Week 🐫
Nice hug to start the Hump with.
Brew with breakfast.
I gave hubby a sloppy wet πŸ’‹ before he went off to work.
I stopped in bed for half an hour before getting dressed.
Hubby went and got the newspaper on the way.

Time for coffee!

Paul  Hardcastle is a British composer, musician, producer, songwriter, radio presenter and multi-instrumentalist. He is best known for his song "19", which went to number 1 in the UK Singles Chart in 1985. He is 63 years old 🎈

Faron Young  was an American country music producer, singer and songwriter from the early 1950s into the mid-1980s and one of its most successful and colorful stars. Hits including "If You Ain't Lovin' (You Ain't Livin')" and "Live Fast, Love Hard, Die Young" marked him as a honky-tonk singer in sound and personal style; and his chart-topping singles "Hello Walls" and "It's Four in the Morning" showed his versatility as a vocalist. Known as the Hillbilly Heartthrob, and following a movie role, the Young Sheriff, Young's singles reliably charted for more than 30 years. In failing health, he died by suicide at 64, on this day in 1996.
