Sat., 8/29 Don Gagliardo
« on: August 29, 2015, 08:58:52 AM »
THEME:   none, but only 26 blocks
Stand for things   ETAGERE   
With several book and author references, this was one of the more literary offerings I can recall.   
"What's COOKING" is even older than ANNETTE, and I rememeber them both as if it were yesterday.  "Hey, good lookin', whatcha got cookin?  How about cookin somthin up with me?" was a song my aunt used to sing to me --- and the last person to refer to me so.   
Not always the best roommates   SNORERS [nor are schnorrers, a favorite Yiddish word of mine for an acquisitive pest ]   
ESA in NG   
RATING:    ;D ;D
Three grins = Loved it; Two grins = Enjoyed it; One grin = A bit bland for my taste; One teardrop = Not much fun

"Classified times" is AFTS. It took me a while to figure out what the clue means. In classified ads, "afts" is an abbreviation for "afternoons," e.g., "Call 555-1234 afts or eves."

When I was a child, most boys preferred Mickey Mouse Club performer ANNETTE Funicello ("One of the original Mouseketeers") but I liked Karen Pendleton and Darlene Gillespie. Among the other original members were future Lawrence Welk Show regular Bobby Burgess, future My Three Sons co-star Don Agrati (later known as Don Grady) and future singer and The Rifleman co-star Johnny Crawford.
