Oops, I did it again. Wait a minute—that sounds more like Britney Spears and less like the Rodgers and Hammerstein song from “The Sound of Music.” You know—that whole “raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens” thing. Mixing my musical metaphors. Again.
That’s right, it’s time for my annual column of memorable moments throughout the year, and what a year it’s been. For many of us, 2022 has been a roller coaster of highs and lows, but thankfully, more of the former, less of the latter. I did manage to get out of the house somewhat more often this past year, even though the shadow of COVID-19 still looms.
Luckily, I’ve got scads of pics to remember it all by, since my brain is “like a sieve,” as Barbara Fox was fond of saying. Some of the highlights this year are even (big surprise) about me, since my health has returned and I’m feeling fit as a fiddle—you know, except for the brain/sieve thing.
Herewith then are a few of my favorite things of 2022—the year in review.
Fun Fact: In the original Broadway production of “The Sound of Music,” the song “My Favorite Things” was introduced by Mary Martin, who was playing Maria. Julie Andrews, who played Maria in the 1965 film version of the musical, had previously sung it on the 1961 Christmas special for “The Garry Moore Show.”
Ask the Google: Q. What does “redux” mean? A. Brought back; revived. E.g. “The 1980s were far more than just the ‘50s redux.”
