I received an email yesterday that contained a cartoon that got me to a wondering. It said: “Do you realize in about 40 years we’ll have thousands of OLD LADIES running around with TATTOOS? And - - - RAP MUSIC will be the GOLDEN OLDIES. (Now that’s scary)” So, I got wondering what each generation’s “golden oldies” are or will be. Also “golden oldies” will be different for different people, and of course for different nationalities.
I am not exactly sure what my parents’ golden oldies were, but I am sure it was the “big band” music. One thing is for sure, they loved the old songs that were sung around the family piano or out around the campfire. To me, those songs that we all sang together will always be my favorite and they bring back such wonderful, warm memories. The song “K-K-K-Katy” was one we always sang. Go ahead and Google it, there really was a song about a guy who stuttered and sang to his girl friend, Katy. So, maybe those old songs we all sang as kids are my “golden oldies”, but to be more within the meaning of the term, I suppose the 50’s rock-n-roll would be my “golden oldies” since I went to “hops” and danced to that music. Bought a 45 rpm record as often as I could save enough from my allowance. I had quite a collection back then. Now, did I bring back any memories for you all?
Now, I have been wondering about my blog and where it is going. I have tried to publish one every day, but it has been interfering with all the projects that I need to be working on, so I think I will start skipping a day or two between blogs. I will check my comments often and will answer them as often as possible, but will not post a new blog every day for awhile.
You all have a good day now, you hear?
