The Year in Review (Dave Barry style)

Have you forgotten the 2007 highlights already? Here is a recap from Dave Barry.

2007 was a disaster. American consumers came to fear products manufactured in China, which covers pretty much everything in the typical American home except the dirt. Global warming continued to worsen, despite the efforts of leading climate experts such as Madonna and Leonardo DiCaprio, who emerged briefly from their private jets to give the rest of us helpful tips on reducing our carbon footprints.

Friday Flashback: You’re Just Too Good To Be True!

A few weeks ago, Cathy and I went to see "Jersey Boys" at Seattle’s Fifth Avenue Theater. It was a great show. For the past two weeks, I’ve been humming this song incessantly.

I have a lot of memories associated with this song:

  • I remember listening to the song on KFRC when it first came out in 1967 while in the back seat of mom and dad’s station wagon. I remember wondering if it was a man or a woman singing.
  • I remember that awesome scene in "The Deer Hunter" where all the guys sing to this song while playing pool at the tavern.
  • I remember a drunken night in 1986 at John Hickey’s Christmas party belting this song out at the top of my lungs with Dino, Eric and a few other derelicts.
  • And, most of all, I remember dancing to this song with my beautiful bride Cathy at our wedding. It was our first dance as husband and wife. And, Cathy, I still can’t take my eyes off of you.
