Note to readers: I posted this earlier but it didn’t seem to go through. I apologize if you got two notices!
A random five for an absolutely gorgeous summer week!
A song in my head – Every morning I wake up with a song on my head. Sometimes I know why. Maybe I just heard the tune or someone talked about it. Sometimes I have no clue how it got there. Here is one that came out of nowhere. I knew the tune and some of the words. The beloved husband didn’t remember it. (I’m sure it had nothing to do with my singing.) I turned to the internet. Gene Pitney did a version in the 1960s but the original was sung by Donnie Brooks in the 1940s. (Maybe my mother played it on the record player.) It’s been decades since I heard it. Maybe you remember it (if you are old enough).
Anticipation is making me wait – There was a delicatessen near my workplace that had the best sandwiches with unusual condiments. I’m all about the condiments! I haven’t been there in several years so I treated myself. What a freaking disappointment. The bread had changed. Bread is important! Instead of a fabulous fresh Kaiser roll, they used part of a big bready sub roll that was made earlier this year. Or maybe even last year. All that anticipation for nothing! And yes, there is a song for that too.
Very strange allergies – Remember the new nerdy glasses I got two weeks ago? I’m allergic to the material. I got dermatitis under the hard plastic nosepiece. I checked with the optician who was flummoxed. She offered no solution so I am in discussions with Mr. Google. There are things you can glue on but at the moment I’m back to my old glasses until my skin heals.
Sometimes you eat the bear and sometimes the bear eats you – The IRS (the bear) told me I owed over $10K based on some wrong data they had, (yes, I almost had a heart attack!). They reviewed my response and closed the case. Hallelujah! One bear down!
Ponds, trees and frogs – The new tree by the pond is planted. The root ball was 300 pounds but the beloved husband and I rolled that puppy into the hole. Awesome! It’s already taller than our dogwoods but a little skimpy as new trees are. That hasn’t stopped the frogs and me from trying to sit in the shade. In a year or two it will be perfect!
So how was your week?
