Organizing Fall Fling: Day 5 - Games and Puzzles

Organizing Fall Fling: Day 5 - Games and Puzzles

Gather all the games and puzzles in your house into one spot. Look at each one and quickly decide if your family actually plays it. Maybe you still have Junior Monopoly and your youngest child is 18. It’s time to purge. The same with puzzles - if you only do a puzzle once, go ahead and part with it. Keep the fun family favorites (in our house Life and Uno are must haves) and ditch the rest. Also if a game or puzzle is missing pieces that you can’t do without, it’s time to say goodbye.

Getting rid of the extras and make more room for fun in your family’s life.

Boogie Chillun' Band Reunites After 43 Years

43 years ago, Richard Nixon was president, we were in the midst of the Vietnam War, and the "Mary Tyler Moore Show" had just debuted on CBS.

It was also the last time a Macon band called Boogie Chillun' made music together.

But for some reason, when they got back together again after all that time, they say they felt like only a day had passed.

In a dimly lit downtown Macon loft Wednesday, the band practiced a few hundred feet from where it all started.

Keyboard player Gary Harmon said, "Next door to the original Capricorn studios on Broadway, in a warehouse."

Harmon said Boogie Chillun' rocked in the late 1960s, as one of the bands signed by Macon record producer, Phil Walden.
