Sing Along Song of the Day 7/3/19

Monday 7/1/19, at Uncle Bubbie’s service, I sung every word of this song remembering by heart.  My mind wandered as it always does to being in St. Margaret Mary’s church at weekly Friday Mass many moons ago.  40 years to be exact!!!  Hey we missed our anniversary :(.  Our once strong community has splintered apart forming new communities.  The school has closed.  The rectory is gone and the plot of green grass in its’ place looks quite a bit smaller.  Still many elements remain the same.  That Church will always be home.

Aaaahhh I am at peace.  This song brings me comfort.  Remembering those who have gone before … recently to all the way back to May 1967 when I was too young to know what was happening yet the events deeply impacted who I am today.  And as Sr. Angelee always said “C’mon boys and girls! Sing out loud with the voice the good Lord gave you!!!”

As always, more to come.

All That Glitters

The #SoCS prompt was rib which generated a couple of Adam and Eve entries. These entries got me thinking about a theme song. I remembered bits and pieces of the words but the name of the show and song escaped me. Here’s what I knew for sure:

  • I was injured in a motorcycle accident during Battle of Flowers weekend of my 6th grade year (this is important because it helped me time stamp what I was looking for).
  • I missed several days of school.
  • Because I was convalescing my parents let me have the TV in my room.
  • I had my nights and days mixed up and I would stay up very late.
  • The show came on after Mary Hartman Mary Hartman.
  • The show was controversial. I remember vividly being anxious that I’d get caught and be in big trouble for watching it. Same with “Soap” but I watched it too.

Then wah la. “All That Glitters” popped into my head. Norman Lear pushing the envelope. Anyone else recall this gem?

Blasphemy but go on and listen anyway.

One morning the Lord she woke up to say I feel like I wanna be creative today

So by a virtue of the power I have invested in me

I make the heaven the earth and the deep blue sea

Things that swim, fly, walk, fly, creep and crawl

Now I better make someone to name them all

Yes human was needed in the neighborhood

So the lord made woman and it was good

She said the Garden of Eden is no place to be alone

And from the rib of a Madame came Adam full grown

As time went by these two went right

They followed the instructions and multiplied

She’d hunt

He’d cook

She worked

He played

While she administered the government he crocheted

She wore the male

He wore the veil

Her head was crowned

His feet were bound

He’d concubine and walk behind

She was a pardon the expression a mastermind

So is it any wonder why the men complain since from the dawn of time it’s been a woman’s domain

Weird how our minds work.

As always, more to come.

Da Best Day Eva

Uh ya it is … April 13, 2019 in the year of our lord.  Da BEST!!! If a mundane day can be the best day that is.  Contradiction?  I think not.

I feel a ramble rumbling in my brain.  We are house bound.  Rain, rain go away.  Puhleese.  We wanna take a taste of Nawlins.  Though we’ve got tons of other things to do around here, we’d rather play.

Of course tending to the necessities of running a house would probably do wonders for my mood.  But I don’t wanna be an adult.  Let someone else take over.  Instead, until the rain clears, I will sing along.  Singing along always makes it better.  So here you go with further ado …

Ever Wonder Why?

Uh ya, all the freaking time.  My mind never stops. It’s a curse I tell ya.

So I looked at my keyboard.  It’s a plain Jane variety that came with the PC.   A downgrade from the wireless keyboard I had previously.  But I don’t care, it just gots to type.  No need for bells and whistles.

Any who, none of that has anything to do with anything. It’s filler y’all.

Any who part two.  I wonder why did the C disappear completely from the keyboard along with most of the E?  Why do S and D look smudged?  And why is the O half gone?

 

Huh?  Why? Things that make you go Hmmm.

I bet if I Googled that sH!t, I’d find out that C is the magic letter used most often by the WORLD!!!  Or I could start a rumor that C is the most used letter.  Bet the peoples would believe it.  We believe everything on the Internet don’t cha know.

As always, more to come.
