STREAM OF CONSCIOUSNESS SATURDAY – SOCS – RAIN/REIN/REIGN

The Friday Reminder and Prompt for #SoCS June 24/17

Rain…rein…reign

Rain…rein…reign

— What’s that?

— Oh, it’s my new rain-tone on my phone.

— That doesn’t make any sense. You mean it’s a ‘ring-tone’?

— Ring Tony? Rigatoni? ha-ha-ha!

— Okay, why is it raining? Make it stop.

— No, it’s my rain dance notice. Every time I hear it, I have to dance around. You know, it’s to call down the rain.

**commences dancing**

— You’re weird.

— You’ll see…pretty soon I’ll rein in the rain, and it will reign supreme!

FRIENDLY FILL-INS

Standard

FRIENDLY FILL-INS

***

https://mcguffysreader.blogspot.com/

Here are the fill-ins:

  1. A recurring dream I have is _____________________.
  2. Turn ______________ into ________________________.
  3. _____________________________ is driving me crazy!
  4. Lately, I have been _____________________________.

***

  1. It seems my recurring dreams are always on the creepy and scary side. There are lots I have had several times over the years. They are always the same. I have no idea why, what they mean, or what causes them to be replayed.  So many to choose from! … In this one I’m driving on a busy freeway, and I’m so nervous, because I know what will happen. I know the way I want to go, and all will be good, but taking a different road, that leads up and over the main road, will get me in trouble, lost, and scared to death. I only have a few seconds to decide which way to go. I try my best to go the safe way, but somehow I always end up on the scary road…every single time. (this may have to do with my bridge phobia)
  2. Turn straw into gold. Naw…that’s a fairy tale. It would be nice, but it’s just wishful thinking.
  3. Itching is driving me crazy! It’s so dry here, it makes us all itchy, no matter how much lotion we use.
  4. Lately, I have been planting some seeds in little pots. They have mostly already sprouted, within a couple of days.

51 Weeks: 51 Songs From The Past: Week 25: Elbow – One Day Like This

***

Thanks, Hugh, for another great prompt for this challenge!

Time for another look back at a song from the past. We were asked what song would we like as a wake up tune in the mornings.

One song I love to hear any time, morning, evening, day, or night, is this one you can see in the video below. It is a fun song, and easy to sing along to. I have to sing it, out loud, any time or place I hear it. This song always puts me in a good mood. It helps that I know all the words without looking. Not saying I can carry a tune at all, but I’ve sang it at home, in grocery stores, and restaurants…wherever I hear it playing.

You remember the song from last week, “The Way”, by Fastball? I heard it on the speakers at the grocery store just yesterday. Yes, I sang that one out loud, too. 🙂

“Take It Easy”, by the Eagles, was released as a single, from the album, “Eagles”, in 1972. It is on the Asylum label, and was written by Jackson Browne, and Glenn Frey.

Time for another SYW, with questions from Cee, and answers from me! Click the above link to find out how to join in this fun challenge. Also, you can find other entries to read. 🙂

***

What is something that people are obsessed with but you just don’t get the point of?

I don’t get the point of people blathering on about their diets. They’re always crowing about how much weight they’ve lost, or what new fad diet they’re following. Then, in a few days, they will be moving on to the next new diet strategy. Meanwhile, they are looking down their noses at everyone else, being all ‘I’m better than you’. Why do we have to listen to all this? Good for you, for sticking to a goal, but keep it to yourself, people!

What quirky things do people do where you are from?

Being a Texan, I imagine others think everything we do is quirky. For the most part, they are probably right! 🙂

What are some things you wish you could unlearn? 

I wouldn’t want to unlearn anything. If I took the time to learn a specific something, it’s because I wanted to know/learn about it. Now, there are plenty of things I’d like to ‘un-see’. I wish I could erase seeing poor animals ran over in the roads, or photos of those poor animals that have be abused. I want to erase seeing and hearing about wars, and terrorism, and body counts. There are so many things I would erase from my mind if I could.

Who is someone that you miss having in your life?

I miss seeing all my family and friends who have passed on. Someday we will have a wonderful reunion, I’m sure.

Optional Bonus question:  What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up?

I’m happy we didn’t completely melt down from the 113 degree heat from last weekend. I’m grateful our air conditioner kept on working. The week coming up? Guess we’ll just see how it goes.

JUMP RIGHT IN

Standard

JUMP RIGHT IN

Jump rope jingles

Recited in rhyme

One, two, three,

Will you be mine?

Double Dutch fun,

Then over-head

Hot pepper is fast,

Your face turns red

Chanted in cadence

To keep up the pace

Trip over your feet,

And lose your place.

NO!

I have always liked this song. It sounds smooth and dreamy, and it’s easy to sing along to. I want to go dancing under the moonlight, don’t you? 🙂

We get it almost every night
When that moon is big and bright
It’s a supernatural delight
Everybody’s dancin’ in the moonlight

Everybody here is out of sight
They don’t bark, and they don’t bite
They keep things loose, they keep ’em tight
Everybody was dancin’ in the moonlight

Dancin’ in the moonlight
Everybody’s feelin’ warm and bright
It’s such a fine and natural sight
Everybody’s dancin’ in the moonlight

We like our fun and we never fight
You can’t dance and stay uptight
It’s a supernatural delight
Everybody was dancin’ in the moonlight

Dancin’ in the moonlight
Everybody’s feelin’ warm and bright
It’s such a fine and natural sight
Everybody’s dancin’ in the moonlight

We get it almost every night
When that moon is big and bright
It’s a supernatural delight
Everybody’s dancin’ in the moonlight

Dancin’ in the moonlight
Everybody’s feelin’ warm and bright
It’s such a fine and natural sight
Everybody’s dancin’ in the moonlight

Dancin’ in the moonlight
Everybody’s feelin’ warm and bright
It’s such a fine and natural sight
Everybody’s dancin’ in the moonlight

Dancin’ in the moonlight
Everybody’s feelin’ warm and bright
It’s such a fine and natural sight
Everybody’s dancin’ in the moonlight

Dancin’ in the moonlight
Everybody’s feelin’ warm and bright
It’s such a fine and natural sight
Everybody’s dancin’ in the moonlight

Dancin’ in the moonlight
Everybody’s feelin’ warm and bright
It’s such a fine and natural sight
Everybody’s dancin’ in the moonlight
