Job hunting during the depression of the early 1930s.
Okay, I am no singer, but I whistle a lot. Speaking of whistling, when we took the family cruise I was on our balcony whistling, my granddaughter Megan was on the other side of the privacy wall and said, “I love that.” I apologized for being so loud, but she said keep it up it sounds good. (Nobody will insult their grandpa)
I am weird, I get a song on my mind and I will wear it out and probably everyone around me. Lately I have been singing, mostly whistling because when you whistle or play a trumpet (any wind instrument) you don’t have to know the words. The song is ‘Sentimental Journey’.
Do you get a song on your mind and it stays?
I have always loved to whistle. When I lost my hearing I didn’t notice, but I quit whistling. Once the Cochlear implants were done, I know I bother everyone, I seem to whistle non stop. Yesterday, I noticed I was walking around in the grocery store whistling while Sherry was getting her hair cut (okay styled). My girl has perfect hair. She gets compliments from strangers even, her hair doesn’t need any help. But…….. she is a real woman, gotta have that hair done.
Anyway I noticed folks looking at me and smiling(maybe laughing inside) so I shut up. But before I knew it I was doing it again.
Hearing and whistling and I have a little history. Our family was watching Peanuts on TV once. One of the characters was Ice skating and on the split screen whistling (the man doing the whistling for the cartoon character was being shown) and to me the whistling stopped. I said, “Now that is embarrassing, losing your whistle on national TV.”
Sherry says, “Honey, he is still whistling.” I knew then I was having a problem.
Later I bought a great diesel truck. I took my girl for a ride. “How do you like it, the sucker is much quieter than I thought it would be.”
My sweetie said, “This is a loud piece of junk.” Until this day she says that is not the words she used, but I know they meant the same. I admitted to myself, I needed hearing aids. LOL There times it is hard to face the truth.
Now a fact about our body:
There are as many hairs per square inch on your body as a chimpanzee.
(That one is hard to swallow)
Doris Day - Sentimental Journey
Gonna set my heart at ease
Gonna make a sentimental journey
To renew old memories
Got my bag, got my reservation
Spent each dime, I could afford
Like a child in wild anticipation
Long to hear that 'All aboard'
Seven, that's the time we leave, at seven
I'll be waitin' up at Heaven
Countin' every mile of railroad track
That takes me back
Never thought my heart could be so yearny
Why did I decide to roam?
Gotta take that sentimental journey
Sentimental journey home
