Musings-Lite No. 28 Repeat

My apologies if you already received this musing.  I have been informed several subscribers have not received the initial publication of this, therefor this.

It seems my cup runneth over with Musings-Lite. Given that, I thought I’d do another Musings-Lite and share a few more with you. I promise you a break for a while after this Musings-Lite.

 

Good memory time: Mom in kitchen – apron lifted up – apron carrying the tomatoes she just picked from the yard.

I took a year of Spanish in high school and didn’t learn a thing and couldn’t speak the language. I’m proud to say that I have retained all that I learned in high school.

I’m convinced that that phrase “talking through the side of your mouth” came about because of Buddy Hackett. (Don’t know who Buddy is? Ask you Grandfather.)

Just once, just once I’d like to see a TV show where the women on it don’t wear makeup. Just for once I’d like to see how they look in a natural state. Then again, doing that just might deplete their fan base.

If you think about it, TV is radio modernized. Certainly it has video, however like radio everything you view has talking, singing and sound effects. In fact, the talking part is so prevalent and prolonged that at times you change channels hoping to find something more appealing.

Speaking of changing channels here is a game you can play with your friends or kids/grandkids. Pick a channel any channel, then going up or down in the channels and see how many stations you can see without hitting a commercial.

Science has tried for centuries to stretch time and failed. However basketball succeeded; they have turned he last two minutes of a basketball games into 20 minutes.

Seniors brains have an overwrite feature. The current thought-in erases the previous one.

##

Food for thought: Regardless of what your position is on any issue, never forget those people in 1556 who found Thomas Cranmer guilty of heresy and burned him at the stake. It is not today’s news that that ultimately judges us; history will judge each of us for what we believe and do in our day.

If you think you are just about perfect, go play a round of golf.

I always thought it would be beneficial to have a freshman high school class interview someone who has a job scrubbing floors as a incentive to apply oneself in school. I also have always thought a visit to a nursing home by those reaching 30 should be required to remind them what life’s possibilities hold.

Stating the obvious: You don’t need a GPS if you are racing on the NASCAR International Speedway track in Daytona Beach. Just take the next left.

##

You ever get that secret satisfaction of recording a show on TV then fast forwarding through all the commercials?

##

I wonder who teaches a fly not to land on water.

The most difficult thing anyone can do with a pen or pencil is fill in that little oval space on a ballot that is next to the name of an opposing party’s candidate. And that is why all in Congress are secure. They seem to  have more tenure than a professor with 30 years’ experience.

When is the last time you received a personal, hand-written letter contained in an addressed envelope with stamp affixed, delivered by the US Postal Service?

The very brief poem by Edna St. Vincent Millay has been quoted again and again, and heard by millions. I offer it in a musing for those few who might read it and see themselves in it.

“My candle burns at both ends; It will not last the night; But ah, my foes, and oh, my friends It gives a lovely light!” – Edna St Millay

I have lived seven plus decades and I am yet to watch someone stick a needle in my arm or elsewhere on my body. I think that may define a coward.

Old timers have acquired a reputation of saying “eh” meaning “what did you say?” It might be somewhat true though we probably say “waah?” a lot more than those “ehs.”

Our dog, Niles, is some kind of watch dog. He barks to alert us that the door bell is ringing, the lawn man is cutting the grass or the newspaper just has been dropped off at 5 A.M. If someone ever broke in our place, they would be in big trouble. No doubt he would try to bark them to death.
