Day 2941: Comebacks

I always appreciate it when you come back to this blog, which today will start out with a definition of “comeback.”

come·back /ˈkəmˌbak/

1. a return by a well-known person, especially an entertainer or sports player, to the activity in which they have formerly been successful.
“the heavyweight champion is set to make his comeback”
Similar: resurgence, recovery, return, rally, upturn, revival, rebound, fightback
a quick reply to a critical remark.
“some of my best comebacks just go right over people’s heads”

I’m looking forward to tomorrow’s comeback of many well-known politicians to the activities in which they have formerly been successful. I’m also looking forward to the comeback of my country to the world stage.

Also, since I was very young, I’ve been known for my comebacks. Once, when a young man was telling me how wonderful he was and said, “You can call me God, for short,” I had this comeback: “Short for what — Godawful?”

Now it’s time to come back to my most recent images. Do you see any comebacks in them?


Gene Kelly and Fred Astaire have had many comebacks, as you can see here:

I look forward to your comebacks in the comment section, below.

Thanks to all who come back to this blog, including YOU.

    The whole world is waiting for The States to make a comeback I think you’re a very brave woman to go on Twitter. -I could never deal with those contraversies. I’m not good at ” answering back in an intelligent way.

    • I think you do fine answering back in an intelligent way, as everyone can tell by your comments here. Many women, I think, are waiting for their self esteem to make a comeback. And, it takes one very brave woman to know another one.

  3. I like your comebacks. We all need more humor and less threats in our lives.

  4. What a comeback from Harley Budai.

  5. F. Scott Fitzgerald said there are no second acts in American lives. For all our sakes I hope we can say that’s true for Trump.

  6. and I watched a beautiful comeback from the cruel years we’ve endured, as I watched the memorial for the Americans we have lost to covid. it is only the beginning, we are back

  7. Four years ticking out, Ann.

  8. This is a terrific post, Ann. *Full* of giggles and awesome comebacks. Happy Friday!
