Stream of Consciousness Saturday – Dom

The Friday Reminder and Prompt for #SoCS Sept. 29/18

***

For today’s SOCS, Linda has given us the prompt of ‘dom’. Thanks, Linda!

Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “dom.” Use it as a word, or find a word that starts or ends with it. Have fun!

seldom know what I’m going to post on here until I find myself actually doing it. I’d say mostly I do random things. That’s one good thing about having a blog…we have the freedom to write about anything we want to, or anything that interests us.

Sometimes, to avoid boredom, I make up lists of things I remember. Here’s one…can I name all my elementary school teacher’s names? Let’s see.

  1. Miss Prather…she was very nice
  2. Miss ? then she got married & became Mrs. McIlroy … I got in trouble a lot with this one
  3. Mrs. Pistol … an older woman, but nice.
  4. Mrs. Jackson … one of my favorites (took our class to her house one time – very fancy)
  5. Miss Herman  … nice, but we got in trouble a lot…she had a dog named Trebataw, then got another named Dee O Gee
  6. Mr. O’Neal … fun teacher & loved to talk about his time in the armed services

It’s funny how I can remember all that, and I have trouble remembering even what we had for lunches this past week! It actually took me awhile to think of these! Could be we had…

Friday – tuna fish salad at home

Thursday – chicken sandwich (from leftovers of the night before)

Wednesday – Jr. cheeseburger at What-a-Burger place

Tuesday – Homestyle pot roast at Cast Iron Grill – (family gathering for a birthday lunch)

Monday – ??

So, that’s all I can think of at the moment.

Happy Saturday, hopefully with no boredom! 🙂

Here’s Day # 1 Question:

What movie could you, or did you, see over and over again when you were a teenager?

I didn’t go to a whole lot of movies back then, but this is one I remember was my favorite. I’m pretty sure I saw it a couple of times at the movie theater, and I’ve watched it many times on TV since then. I still love it.

The movie I’m talking about is…”To Sir With Love”. It came out in 1967, and starred Sidney Poitier. It was based on the semi-autobiographical novel by E. R Braithwaite (pub. 1959). It features a lot of good pop music, and Lulu, a prominent singer, sang the title song. It also featured some music by the Mindbenders, a band from the same time. Funny story…a friend and I saw the Mindbenders in person, when they came to our town for a concert. We didn’t get to go to the concert, but we did go out to the airport to greet them when they arrived. We were thrilled to actually see them, of course! 🙂

Here’s the movie trailer from the movie. Did you go see this one? Enjoy!
