Random Post # 18 – 3 Weird Things   

***

Sometimes I just sit and think about things that are weird to me. Do you do that?

Here’s some random thoughts of mine…

  1. Finger Clicks – I use one of the mouse things with my desktop computer. When I press/click one part of the mouse it takes me to whatever I want to look at on line. So I was wondering just how many ‘finger clicks’ I’ve ever done in my computering history. It must be in the billions! And, my pointer finger that I use for this is still in good working order after all that ‘exercise’. 🙂
  2. Do you ever wonder about the cleaning product called SOS pads? Those steel wool pads that have some kind of soap embedded in them, are great for scrubbing stubborn, stuck on food off dishes and pans, or many other uses. The thing is, I’ve always thought the soap stuff was poison! I don’t know why. Maybe it is, well of course if you try to eat it, it is, but just to clean with and then rinse it off your dishes and hands, I figured it was still poison. I have to wash whatever it is over again with regular dish soap, just to get the poison soap off. 🙂
  3. Phone Tones – I think I’ve mentioned this before, about the tone/signals we get on our cell phones, when we get a notification of something. Especially in blogging, when I get a notice of a followed blogger’s new post, I get a certain tone on my phone to let me know. This can be pretty immediately, even if the signal is coming from another country. So…when I post something new, do you get a tone/signal on Your phone? It’s weird that you and I can make other peoples phones make a sound – just like that! 🙂

Anyway, just some weird things I think about. I have more, which I’ll do another time.

What are some weird things you think about? 🙂

Wichita Lineman – Song Lyric Sunday

Wichita Lineman – Song Lyric Sunday

Song Lyric Sunday Theme for 2/11/18

***

This week for Song Lyric Sunday, Helen has suggested songs about phones or phone calls. Thanks, Helen!

The one I chose to feature has to do with telephones, and the lines that carry the transmission of the calls. This song tells about the people who go out to repair the lines…or at least this one, who is feeling lonely. He thinks he can hear his love’s voice in the whine of the wind through the lines. Have you ever heard this eerie noise? I have, and it is a lonely sound. You can imagine thousands of voices coursing through the lines, all at the same time.

Now I probably should look up some technical information about how our phone calls happen, but this isn’t what I want to do. I have no idea how it works. I’m pretty sure telephone lines are still used, since I see the telephone poles, but as for cell phones, maybe it goes through the air, or bounces off some satellite up in space? Well, that’s something to look into another day.

For now, just enjoy this classic song, from Glen Campbell.

“Wichita Lineman”, by Glen Campbell, was released from his album of the same name, in 1968. It was written by Jimmy Webb, and is on the Capitol label.

I am a lineman for the county
And I drive the main road

Searchin’ in the sun for another overload

I hear you singing in the wire
I can hear you thru the whine

And the Wichita lineman
Is still on the line

{Hook}

I know I need a small vacation
But it don’t look like rain
And if it snows that stretch down south
Won’t ever stand the strain

And I need you more than want you
And I want you for all time

And the Wichita lineman
Is still on the line

{Bridge}

And I need you more than want you
And I want you for all time
And the Wichita lineman
Is still on the line
