Ride Captain Ride – Song Lyric Sunday – Water

https://jimadamsauthordotcom.wordpress.com/2019/02/02/water-cohesion/

For today’s SLS, the word prompt suggestion is water. We can find songs having to do with any type of water, be it oceans, lakes, rivers, bays, etc.

Thanks for hosting this fun musical challenge, Jim!

This is a song that I’ve always liked, because it brings back memories of an all night long, nonsensical drive around town with friends.

Here’s what is interesting/strange about the lyrics, to me, now that I’ve read them.

  • Why 73 men? What’s the significance of that number?
  • A storm was blowing, yet the sea was peaceful?
  • The ship was a mystery ship, come from nowhere, and then disappeared. Were they aliens from another planet trying to lure people to their ‘mystery ship’, and ‘another world’?

“Ride Captain Ride”, by Blues Image, was released from their album, “Open”, in 1970. It was written by Mike Pinera and Frank Konte, and is on the Atco/Atlantic label.

Ride Captain Ride

{Intro}

Seventy-three men sailed up from the San Francisco Bay
Rolled off of their ship, and here’s what they had to say
“We’re callin’ everyone to ride along to another shore
We can laugh our lives away and be free once more”

But no one heard them callin’, no one came at all
Cause they were too busy watchin’ those old raindrops fall
As a storm was blowin’ out on the peaceful sea
Seventy-three men sailed off to history

Ride, captain ride upon your mystery ship
Be amazed at the friends you have here on your trip

Ride captain ride upon your mystery ship
On your way to a world that others might have missed

{Bridge}

Seventy-three men sailed up from the San Francisco Bay
Rolled off of their ship, and here’s what they had to say
“We’re callin’ everyone to ride along to another shore
We can laugh our lives away and be free once more”

But no one heard them callin’, no one came at all
Cause they were too busy watchin’ those old raindrops fall
As a storm was blowin’ out on the peaceful sea
Seventy-three men sailed off to history

Update on Missing Hair Clips

Update on Missing Hair Clips

***

I did ask whoever/whatever to bring back my missing hair clips yesterday. I said ‘please bring back my hairclips’ several times as I’d go about other things.

And…it worked…sort of…

Two clips showed up in on the little shelf I have in the bathroom. They weren’t there yesterday, but this morning they were there right where I could see them. The whole cardboard card of them was not included, though, so the others are still gone. I said thank you for bringing back two of my clips, and now bring back the rest of them. We’ll see if they, whoever they are, do eventually bring them back.

Here’s the two they brought back, but now I’m wearing them in my hair.

A to Z Blog Challenge 2018 – Letter K

Standard

A to Z Blog Challenge 2018 – Letter K

http://www.a-to-zchallenge.com/

***

Welcome to the 2018 edition of the A to Z Blogging Challenge!

All through the month of April, the challenge asks us to blog every day (except Sundays), and to go through the alphabet A to Z, connecting our posts to the letter of each day.

My idea for this time, my 5th to participate, is to showcase a book or two each day, and provide a tiny bit of information about them. These will not be a full book review, but just saying what it is about, and if I liked the book or not.

These books are mostly books that I already have on my shelves, and have read, or are on my to be read stacks. There will be a very few of them that I don’t already own, or have read.

I will also post a quote each day that has something to say about books, or reading.

Hope you enjoy, and maybe see a book or a few that you might want to read, too.

“Kabul Beauty School”, by Deborah Rodriguez, is an eye-opening look at one woman’s personal journey in Afghanistan.

Traveling to the war torn country with a group of humanitarian aid workers, she wasn’t very sure of what she could help out with, but she found her calling after all. Being a professional hair-dresser by trade, she realized that the Western workers, and the Afghan women alike, welcomed her expertise in fixing hair.

The author eventually opened her own beauty shop/school in Kabul, in 2003, with the help of sponsors. As she began to know more and more women, they began to tell their own personal stories, some quite tragic. This community of women formed the bonds of friendship, and learning of each other’s cultures, in spite of adverse circumstances.

“Killer Stuff”, by Sharon Fiffer, is just one of the books in a whole series with the main character. Jane Wheel is her name, and she loves to go to estate sales, flea markets, and auctions. She buys stuff for an antique dealer to re-sell, but keeps a lot of it for herself. She just can’t help it. Along the way, she always finds some kind of crime to be solved. For some reason, she falls into the mystery and must help solve it. She has a funny family, which we see in all the books, too.

If you like mystery solving, yard sales, and very funny incidents, you’ll like this series. I’ve read them all, and wish there were more.

LITTLE LOST MITTEN – NAME…PINK – PLEASE HELP ME FIND MY TODDLER OWNER!

Yes, she lost a little pink mitten. It was one half of her favorite pair…and it was pink!

My grand-daughter, who is 2, loves her mittens, but she has a thing about taking them off. One day, as she sat in her car seat, we were talking to her, while we stood by the open door. We were in the drive-way at home, and she was showing off her mittens to us. Then, later, after we got to the store we were going to, it was missing. We asked her where it was, and she said she dropped it on the ground. But, she wasn’t out of the car to drop it on the ground at all, unless it was dropped while we were talking to her earlier.

So, after getting back home we looked all over in the car, and it wasn’t there. It was not in the driveway. It wasn’t anywhere. The little pink mitten is still missing to this day.

Very strange…Maybe someday it will somehow reappear from wherever  it has been all this time. Do you think so? 🙂

SOMEDAY

Standard

SOMEDAY

Archaic and Arcane,

A mystery, just the same…

A dig through the Antiquities

Of our Ancestors…

A Story told,

A Life so bold;

The Remains of the Past still Haunt…

The Photos of those Unknown,

Showed Children, through their Ages…

Old fashioned Clothes,

Unsmiling Faces…

Fill the book of Scrapbook pages.

Who are these Mortals?

They are Part of Us.

Their Past lives on and On.

Remember them,

Learn from Them,

We will Be Them…Someday…

Just a Photo for our Future families

To Dig through.
