what a fool believes

Feeling a bit of a fool lately. Those that have followed this blog know that I enjoy interpreting lyrics. Often an old song from my past will offer new meaning in my present. Other times it's just life memories of when I first listened to the song. Some of you have commented on how this new meaning/connection of an old song has happened to you.
What's up, What's down

Remember the Dobbie Brothers hit song "What A Fool Believes"?
Here's the first few lines:

He came from somewhere back in her long ago
The sentimental fool don't see
Tryin' hard to recreate
What had yet to be created once in her life
She musters a smile for his nostalgic tale
Never coming near what he wanted to say
Only to realize it never really was


Yeah you can't recreate something that was never created.

weird ad for me

I'm in CCC (Curious Confused Clown) mode right now.

Didn't give them permission to use my name

As I was trolling scrolling through FB the other day, an ad video clip came up that I found funny. I watched it but didn't understand why their algorithm would selected me as a potential buyer. Their ad matching failed with me. I decided I needed to share the ad but not buy the product.

Have you heard of "tactical pants". I have not.


Being a senior I don't need tactical pants. Maybe strategical pants. Comfortable pants that could remind me about my daily stuff and prevent falling down. The ad shows many of features of these pants. Hopefully, the ad clip will play here. 

No pants will help me kick my leg up. Pants helping put my shoes on quicker would be nice. I don't need to tow a car with my pants. HOWEVER it would offer a great reason to take your pants off if you were offering assistance to stranded lady on the side of the road. (is that tactical or strategical??)
How many rings of performers does your circus have now?

December rhymes with September

"Do you remember
The 21st night of September?
"Do you remember
The 25th night of December?

Earth, Wind & Fire changed their hit "September" for a Christmas album.

September or December? Maybe the important word for me is remember. My memory of this last September doesn't rhyme with my December. My sad September brings me dreary December.

I had both cheers and tears for Christmas.

I did have support from the family so it was not too bad but still very different. Should I expect it to always be different? I think so. But different can still allow for joy.

Back to that Earth Wind & Fire song, someone thought they could make a Halloween version by using October.
