We go together
Like rama lama lama ka dinga da dinga dong
As shoobop sha wadda wadda yippity boom de boom
Chang chang changitty chang shoobop
That's the way it should be, wha oooh, yeah
I haven't run across any new vids to post, either.
I about get a headache whenever I watch Jeopardy, hahaha. The questions are too hard for me. Hub used to watch it every day, and when my 9 and 10 year old step-kids came to live with us, I was impressed that they got more answers right than me.
Speaking of the Land of Nod, reminds me of this lullaby, with Buffy Sainte-Marie.
And here's another lovely song I just ran across, it came on after the Wynken, Blynken and Nod vid.
I used to watch Jeopardy now and then. I thought Alex Trebek was the dullest man on TV.
There was an article about him in the news a year or two ago. In the comments from readers
one gal said, "He's the smartest man on TV".
When I was a kid we had a book of poems by Eugene Fields who wrote Wynken, Blynken and Nod as well as lots of other verses for kids. The phrase used by Ken Kesey "One Flew Over the Cukoo's Nest" was taken from one of his poems. He used to live in Oregon. My brother the park ranger visited him one time at his farm. Didn't have much of a visit though as Ken was
just leaving on a trip. Well, Ken took a lot of trips.
The title of his second novel "Sometimes A Great Notion" comes from the old song that
the Weavers popularized: Goodnight, Irene."
In the days when I had my record collection I had an album by Buffy St. Marie. "The
Universal Soldier" was on that disc.
Great balls of incompetence. That video is hilarious. Kinda like an old Charlie Chaplin or
Buster Keaton film. It's also horrifying. I had no idea that riding a stretcher was so dangerous.
I looked at several videos yesterday. Found some that I liked, but I think they are too long
to post here. Also saw some where the caretakers weren't doing a good job; maybe the little
kids got hurt. I'll keep looking.
Hope things are good at your hacienda. I just woke up from a nap. Gordon is downstairs
making two kinds of soup. We are going to the Pasadena library tomorrow. That's about
15 miles. Nowadays we seldom go farther than that. Our traveling days are over.
Speaking of Alex Trebek. I've been watching old reruns of $25,000 Pyramid and I am trying to figure out how Dick Clark kept his job. He makes so many mistakes on every show. Of course, this has nothing to do with Alex T. but it made me think of Dick C. Ok, that's all. GB
Great videos, Patti. I had not heard of Emily Bear.
The song she wrote for her teacher reminded me of the kind of songs that showed up in
movies from the 1930's and 4o's such as: I'll be Seeing you, As Time Goes By, I Remember You, Bewitched, Bothered and Bewildered and September Song.
I'm still looking for some videos to post. Not much going on here. Just went out and gave the
feral cat some kibble and fresh water. I have to bundle up so the fierce bugs won't bite me.
Don't know what they are, but they bite like mosquitoes on steroids.
Hi Rock and Patti. I haven't been on much. I've been feeling down a lot lately and trying to deal with lots of stress. I hope to think of some games to post in the near future. I've missed you guys! We are all hanging in there these days. lol Hugs, GB
Sorry you're feeling "dauncy" to use Lucy's grandmother's word. Actually most of us
probably feel worse than dauncy aka "lousy". Too bad there aren't some new episodes
of Lucy and Ricky. The whole country needs cheering up.
I just woke up after a long nap. Didn't do much today. Fed the cat. Posted here. Read a
book. Watched some TV. Tried to write to my old aunt, but didn't get anywhere with that.
I was only outside for a minute, Patti. Happy to report no new bites. Too bad I can't import
a mild Minnesota snowfall. I 'spect that would get rid of the vicious monsters. The last
few weeks have reminded me of those cheesy Japanese monster films from the 50s.
