The mistakes & originality ….
Cars of beauty: This is a 1060 Buick Electra
For Saturday, today’s stuff:
You that read some of the same blogs I do know Myra https://mevely317.blogspot.com/ She is a quick witted lady who kicks in so many memories. They come especially when she plays some ‘blogging game’ of answering random questions. The other day it was about random songs and I sang one all day.
t is MA’s blog at http://onyama.blogspot.com/
She had a familiar graphic starting her daily blog, it is a Lucy comic methinks that is captioned “When you stumble, make it part of the dance!”
Our youth has many memorable moments. My mother loved arranging flowers. Once she had too many white carnations, she changed the color with some liquid dye. Using the same idea, I have renewed artificial poinsettias with spray paint. LOL
We have all heard or read the old adage, if life gives you lemons, make lemonade. Not everyone can do that, but it is good advice.
I have mentioned a songwriter, singer and musician named Vep Ellis. It was 1953 and I was privileged to meet and hear Vep. He played the accordion, piano, sax and trumpet. He is the only person I ever heard use a line like MA did in her blog. He mentioned at times missed a note when playing different instruments, he said, “When I do, I try to make part of the melody.”
I know I have related that, but to a teenager it resounded. It became like the lemon/lemonade thing. I try to understand every setback becomes part of our life’s melody. When it is passed I want to remember the ‘good’ things that happened during this ‘trying time’ of our country.
PS: This seems familiar to me. Like I have written this recently, if I have, it must be charged to the fact my wife is getting older. :-O
