ROBBIE THE ROBOT – Marilyn Armstrong

RDP Saturday – ROBOT One day, some years back,  the mailperson delivered a copy of a wildly expensive catalogue store in Manhattan. For more than $3000. they were offering a full-size version of Robbie the Robot. The catalogue model was bigger than a normal human and featured the robotic performer -- statuesque -- who was a … Continue reading ROBBIE THE ROBOT – Marilyn Armstrong

WHISTLE AND GO FISHING IN HEAVEN – REBLOG – JOHN PRINE

Since we are into "round and round" this morning, just ONE more and one of my very favorite songs. Is it country music? Or just great music? How many songs make you cry and laugh at the same time? This one does! I loved John Prine. He's making a bit of a comeback. He had … Continue reading WHISTLE AND GO FISHING IN HEAVEN – REBLOG – JOHN PRINE

SoCS — ROUND AND ROUND, PERRY COMO – REBLOG – FANDANGO

Can two minds thing MORE alike? I remember this song because I had it on a 45 RPM. Remember then? I had a little record player and a pile of records in every color of the spectrum. I always like Perry Como, though I never understood how come he could sing with his teeth apparently clenched.

FOWC with Fandango — Highway
(ROUND & ROUND)


 

This, That, and The Other

When I saw Linda G. Hill’s Stream of Consciousness Saturday prompt, which is to “use the word ‘round’ as a word by itself or find a word that contains it,” the first thing that came to mind was “a round tuit,” as in “I’ll get around to it.” But then I realized that I already wrote a post about round tuits. In fact, that post, which you can read here, was written for one of Linda’s One-Liner Wednesday prompts. So there goes that idea.

The next thing that came to mind was the saying, “What goes around comes around.” But guess what? I wrote this post for a Mindlovemisery’s Menagerie Tale Weaver prompt. Sheesh! Another idea down the drain.

So now what? Think, Fandango. Oh wait, I got it! And I bet only those of you out there who are as old as I am will relate to my SoCS…

SEPTEMBER WITH A PINK WILDFLOWER – Marilyn Armstrong

FIRST PINK SQUARE PICTURE OF SEPTEMBER! Can you believe it's September? How did that happen? But today, as we were driving from town to town, seeing doctors, picking up prescriptions, stopping home to grab lunch and out again, I noticed that trees are beginning to change color. Not masses of them, but some. I saw … Continue reading SEPTEMBER WITH A PINK WILDFLOWER – Marilyn Armstrong

HOW ARE YOUR YEARS? – Marilyn Armstrong

When I was in college, two of the women with whom I became friends were suicides. Neither of them was happy, but I would never have guessed either of them was suicidal. One of them was just 19 when she killed herself. The other was 21. I have never assumed "everything is fine" for anyone. … Continue reading HOW ARE YOUR YEARS? – Marilyn Armstrong

BLACK & WHITE CHALLENGE: GLASS – Marilyn Armstrong

Cee’s Black & White Photo Challenge: Glass Lots of glass. In fact, when I really looked closely, almost every picture had glass either as part of a picture or as the primary focal point for a shot. I'm trying to use newer pictures, so all of these are from August or at the earliest, July. It … Continue reading BLACK & WHITE CHALLENGE: GLASS – Marilyn Armstrong

GIRLFRIEND OF THE WHIRLING DERVISH – Marilyn Armstrong

I always thought this goofy song was made up for a Looney Tunes cartoon. I vaguely remembered it as Daffy Duck, but it turned to be Porky Pig. Moreover, it's a real song, written by Johnny Mercer et al. It has been performed by a variety of artists, including Bette Midler. Why did this come … Continue reading GIRLFRIEND OF THE WHIRLING DERVISH – Marilyn Armstrong
