I'm learning a lot from this challenge...had to Google Martha after listening to the video....was so not loving the outfits...hard to believe I had some jumpsuits in my closet at the time also...ick.

Well, I didn't have any candies. You work with what you've got.
nonamedufus said…
Hey, it was the 80s.
Coco said…
You did it! Nice idea without gaining weight! :)
Barb Paige said…
good idea!
Laughing Mom said…
I was expecting more candy shots and instead get a view of Martha's muffins! You should be ashamed, duf!
mike said…
Ah great song!
nonamedufus said…
No, as a matter of fact I'll lose weight dancing!
nonamedufus said…
Different, right?
nonamedufus said…
Both women in this group were named Martha.
nonamedufus said…
A blast from the past.

Are there m&m's in those Muffins? Ask Martha for me.
nonamedufus said…
I'll get right on it.

kick-ass tune! Nice!
Cheryl said…
Sweeeeeeeeeeeeeet! I love it when you pull out one of your albums from you vast collection of vinyl to share during this challenge. Never heard of them but I love that they were recorded by Metro Music. So many Ms to gush over in this photo.
nonamedufus said…
A Canadian new wave band from the 80s.
nonamedufus said…
Oh I have a vast collection. But I could kick myself because in the 80s I threw out al my 45s from the 60s and 70s. Beach Boys, Beatles, Turtles, Troggs, Gary Lewis and the Playboys, etc.
meleahrebeccah said…
Thanks for sharing, because I had never heard of them before.
nonamedufus said…
Well, when I had no candies I knew exactly where to go. My eclectic record collection.
Cheryl said…
I hear ya. I had a vast LP collection but got rid of 90% of it years ago. Most of the time, I'm fine with that but sometimes I do miss it.


I wasn't raised with music and I've found I concentrate better without it. The only place I have to have music is in the car. Sadly carmakers have yet to create a stereo system that includes a turntable.
ladyV said…
never heard of them, but you are introducing me to new bands and songs. i do like that they are women.
mike said…
Yep, and the opening riff still rocks.
nonamedufus said…
They were pretty much a one hit wonder.
nonamedufus said…
I listen to music all day long, while I read, on the computer, driving, etc.
ladyV said…
That's what I want to be. One hit, collect my money and then disappear

It's great, isn't it.
Nicky said…
Cool. Ear candy. I haven't heard that song in years! Nice one, Dufus.
nonamedufus said…
Well, they've continued to play but never had a hit on this scale again.
nonamedufus said…
Thanks, Nicky. Thanks, Nicky. (echo, get it?)
MikeWJ said…
What a clever boy you are. I've never even heard of this group.
Martha and the Muffins! My favorite band! (OK I have no idea who they are) but what a great idea!
Ziva said…
Thank god, if I see one more photo of candy, I'm going to have to go out and buy some M&Ms. Martha and the Muffins, eh? Sounds a little bit like the title of an adult film, don't you think?
nonamedufus said…
Well now you have.
nonamedufus said…
Martha and the Muffins = M&M!
nonamedufus said…
...in the free world.

Now that you mention it...

Sometimes You're the Bug...

I don't know who first came up with it but it's a marvellous saying. Sometimes you're the windshield, sometimes you're the bug. It's like sometimes you win, sometimes you lose...but far more descriptive. I mean have you ever had it happen to you? You're driving along as the sun's just gone down. You turn on your lights in the dusk and the bugs just seem to flock to your windshield, drawn as if by a magnet. Now, of course, you're faced with a choice. Do you just leave them be or do you flip on the windshield wipers and shoot windshield wiper fluid at your windshield. If it's ever happened to you, you know this is a no-win situation. Trying to clean them off usually makes it worse. You better hope you find a gas station...or a guy at the side of the road who wants a dollar...with a squeegee. That's the only way. And, of course, the bug never wins. It's always the windshield that comes out on top. When I was a kid, though, riding my bik

The Polka Dot Door

A long time ago, when I was 22, my first child was born.  That kid grew up on a little Canadian kid's show called Polka Dot Door, produced by the TV Ontario network.  And Dad, more often than not, sat through those shows with his little one. Nine or so years later when a brother, and a year after that when a sister came along number one son was moving on to Knight Rider and The Dukes of Hazzard.  But there was a nice overlap where his siblings picked up where he had left off with Polka Dot Door.  And Dad was right there to welcome them. So you're looking at a Polka Dot Door veteran.  The show began in 1971 and ran to 1993.  I didn't watch the full run but I did get in my fair share.  The formula was pretty simple.  A young male and female host, which seemed to change every week, sang songs, told stories, made crafts and generally did their best stimulate little brains.  The show opened as follows... Imagination Day!  Oh boy!  You know what happens on Imagination D
