Royal doghouse

Polo widow: His wife is set to give birth any day now, but that didn’t stop Britain’s Prince William from joining his brother, Prince Harry, for a game of polo about 100 miles outside of London on Sunda.

Wonder if William spent Sunday night sleeping on the couch in the polo clubhouse.

The ol’ fishin’ hole: On Thursday, a new series called “Debbie Macomber’s Cedar Grove” premieres on the Hallmark Channel. Star Andie MacDowell calls it a modern-day version of “The Andy Griffith Show.”

Fittingly, in the first episode Deputy Barney Fife Jr. is put on paid administrative leave after he accidentally discharges his firearm into the floor at the Mayberry Police Department.

“Like” disliked: Family psychologist John Rosemond urges adults to restrain their kids and grandkids from repeatedly inserting “like” into their sentences, a habit he condemns as “immature, ignorant and uneducated.”

Point taken. Because today’s young people will become grandparents someday, and the neighbor kids will never take them seriously if they holler, “Hey you brats, like, get off my, like, lawn!”
